The County Court last week
made an appropriation in the 1015
budget of $300. to carry on the
work of the County Fruit Inspec
This is a wise appropriation, for
Clackamas County has always been
well in the front in advertising and
advocating fruit planting and rais
ing, and its acreage, under apples
and other fruits, represents a big
investment to the individuals
Hundreds in the county are giv
ing their entire attention to the
growing and nurturing of sturdy,
clean fruit trees and bushes, and at
big expense are hghiing the various
pests and diseases. These growers
realize that their future success de
pends upon clean fruit and clean
trees, aud they cannot exterminate
the pests and diseases, if the neigh
boring family orchards or even a
nearby tree is allowed to act as a
breeding ground for the fruit tree
parasites and diseases.
Last vear the county allowed the
inspector a very small sum for this
work, hut much good was accom
plished and while $300. is a small
amount, it will help to a large degree.
The county’ s poor receive an ap
propriation of $10.000 and unless
the fruit grower is protected to sonic
extent, he will have to join the
ranks of the poor
One hears a great deal about the
associations connected with the old
family orchard and this or that tree,
which was planted in ’ 59 by a much
cherished forefather. The owner
usually hates to have to cut down
that particular tree or trees, as it
stands as a monument to its planter's
memory, hut in its disiaxvd and
ptst ridden state, it puts forth no
good fruit, does much harm to the
neighborhood, and acts as a poor
Many farmers are not interested
in fruit culture themselves and con
sequently not vitally interested in
helping to stamp out dixea.se, but
that same man would raise an aw-
f al fuss if by some carelessness, hog
cholera or soma other infectious
disease should reach his stock, or
blight reach his potatoes or grain.

To forbid dancing or anv other
form of enjoyment, naturally makes
the average girl or boy all the more
anxious to enjoy them, and as a
consequence they are forced to at
tend dances without the knowledge
of their parents, and often times
where the environment is bad.
Just because some men gamble at
cards for a living or sport, is no
reason for banishing the game.
Billiards and pool were at one time
classed as low forms of enjoyment,
