GOOD APPLES SELL WELL
A. M. Cursor) Gives Good Advice
in His Report.
To the President aud Memliers of the
State Board of Horticulture :
I respectfully submit the following
semi-aunual report ou the fruit iu
dostry of the Third district to. April,
Tho larijo apple chop of this dis
trict for last year, hi s gone to market
with satistaetory results to the grow
ers. Tim- liiuh prims that prevailed at
the beginning of the shipping sca.-on
nerp maintained for fancy stock, with
;i hiruu demaud for mora than the
growers could enppty.
Iu January, whou low grade stock
bepm going to market, price, foil to
in extent, and growers did uot realiv.e
much as tiny anticipated from
tho high prices that 3jB' and 4-tior
stock had bucu selling for.
I have observed that early in the
seaKon New York and Chicago buyers
aro a)viiyn on hand ready to buy at
good prices .all the clean & aud
4-tior apples to bo had iu tho market.
They do not seek lower grades at auy
This emphaai.ci the f.tct that our
apple growers are neglecting au op
portunity to see that their orchards
do not overbear, but thin tho fruit at
tho proper seasou, and grow nothing
under 4-ticr apples. Nothing under
4-tior stock can stand tho expeuso of
packing aud trausportatiou charges
to distant markets. The question
may bo asked, can we grow the apple
iu the Rogue river valley, taking our
seasons as they occur, bo as to have
the greater part of tho crop 4-tier and
under ufgnthcriug timer Yes, it can
be done, by being prepared to irrigate
our apple orchards, and thorough
Last season Olwell Bros, ot Central
Point, as au experimental venture,
put in a gasoliuo pumping plant that
cost lor diggiug well, cngtuo and
guKolino 720. Their engine was six
liorso power, and had capacity to
havo pninped witter enough to have
irrigated six or seven acres. As it
resulted, their well ouly afforded
water eiiough to irrigated ICO Yellow
Nowtowu apple trees through the
season. The 100 lollow Ituwtowns
are situated on a dry gravelly ridge
aud had always failed for want of
moisture, to maturo tho apples aud
make them largo enough to market.
Last year with irrigation, Olwell
Bros, said from thesn 100 trees. 1 100
worth of apples fMHO more than their
original pumping plant cost. During
tho past winter, Olwell Bros, have
been tilling and underdraiuiug their
liiu-acro orchard, aud will put iu
power enough to pump and irrigate
tho w hole orchard.
A. D. Helms ot Ash land has a 10-
itcro apple orchard eight miles south
of.Ashlund, 10 yours old.
The orchard is uu red hill loam,
resting on bedrock. Mr. Helms has a
ditch on his place from a small gulch.
As an experiment lift year, lie began
June 10th to irrigate his orchard, and
continued to irrigato until September
10th. At apple gathering time lie
gathered and sold AOOO boxes of 3 to
t-ticr apples from this orchard, which
he sold at tho parking houso for (1.60
per box. These were all faucy apples,
There were uo culls worth mention
ing iu tho whole crop.
Without irrigation, Mr. lieltus tells
inn hu would not have hud MX) boxes
of 1-th r stock aud the remuitiedr of
tho crop would have been too small to
have been of any marketable value.
In this section we have our winter
rains and mure or less drought during
summer months. From the results
had hy Olwell Bros, aud Mr. Helms,
it is evident that it is not for the want
of plant food in our soil that apples
on many of our soil do uot mature and
and grow large enough to sell ill the
market as fancy stock, but from luck
All of the nourishment which tho
appln gets from tho soil during its
growing period is taken in solution,
and unless there is an ahundunco of
so'.l moisture to distolvo tho plant
foods, it is evident tho whole crop
cannot mature. Hence, irrigation
Hiipplics tho necessary moisture, und
large, fully devclojx-d apples at
gathering time is tho reward of the
progressive, thoughtful apple grower.
There is uo trouble to sell to
Eastern buyers, such apples as Olwell
Bros, and Mr. Helms grew by Inigit
tion last season. They were in a
class by themselves. The seller had
no talking to do to inako the sale.
The apples talked for themselves.
Thev could stand trausportatiou and
commiss.on charg'-s and leave a large
profit for the grower.
The progr ssive men learn as they
go along and we have many pro
gressive apple growers in Koguo river
valhy who will take advantage of
Olwell Bros, and Mr. Helms' irri
gation cxjwrmirn t last season and
put in irrigation this scaitou. When .
gravity system can be had, it is the
chi ajiest aud best. Where it is not
practical, pumps, with gasoline or
lii'tric power is practical and will
liy the growvr handsomely on money
Eiaman Brcs., six miles west of
Grants Pass, will put In a gasoline
poinping plant this season and pump
water from Kogue river to irrigate
their l.",-acre apple orchard.
The blooming season for .11 kiodr
of froit trees is much later this yr
April 1st, almond tree began
blooming, a month later than usual.
Owing to constant rains during
February and March, bul.little spray
ing for scale has beeu done. Nearly
all of the large commercial orchards
in the valley will have to spray dur
ing April if at U this season. At
this date, April 6. all orchard Jlands
are too wet to get iuto with a spray
There are many thousands of young
trees iu this valley heeled in, wait
ing for the ground to get iu condition
Iu my own case I have 6000 grape
vines to plant during April aud May,
that I would have planted iu February
and March could I have hud the
ground in eouditiou.
Sau Jose Scale.
This lost constantly demands the
;iUention of the fruit grower and no
doubt always will. It is o well es
tablished iu the orchards and wild
woods that the ouly assurance the
grower has to grow fruit, freo of the
pest, is to spray every year. It is
useless and childish to talk of exter
mination, or that drastio legltlution
enforced with vigor could accomplish
tho desired extermination. The
grower mast bo educated on the Hue
of self-luterost that it is dollars and
acuta to him to grow fruit free of the
pest. That it is iu his power to
spray annually aud have clean fruit
I find the man who complains most
and demands that the commissioner
mako his neighbor spray do not
spray at alL He expects immunity
from the post by his neighbors labor
and effort. This is wrong. The fact
must be acoepted and acted upon that
if ho would grow fruit free of scale
he must spray, without regard to
what his neighbor may do. Tho spray
pump is the implement that tho suc
cessful growor uses industriously and
makes a success. The successful man
does not allow himself to drift, and
wait for his neighbor ho keeps doing
It is difficult to obtain anything in
this world without going aftor it.

WOMAN'S RELIEF CORPS

Following is the address of the
Natonal President of the Woman's
I briug you the greetings of 150,
(XX) loyal women. Notwithstanding
tha rupid multiplicity of wouions'
patriotic societies aud similar organ
iaztions of women, taking the time
aud thought of those who aro reaching
out into wider neins or duty, as
citizens of our great country, the
Woman's Relief Corps, auxiliary to
the Grand Army of the Republic
continues steadily to the front. Not
only numerically, but iu its perfect
business system and tho variety aud
.scope of its multiplied interests, It
stands as an exemplar of what womeu
can accomplish when their zeal has
bocu crystallized iuto couilcto organ
ization. Tho objects of the Woman's Relief
Corps aro threefold ; their paramount
duty to assist the Ornad Army of the
Republic in blazoning ou the nation's
record their sleudid principles of
Fraternity, Charity aud I-oaylty.
Fraternity is the corner stono of
our common edidico, a fraternity
which uot ouly embraces the mem
bership of the Grand Army and the
Relief Corps, aud those akiu to them
by blood 'or patriotio interest ; but a
fraternity which is girdling the earth,
since our constitutional requirements
aro based upou tho Declaration of In
dependence, assorting that all weu
(and women) are born free and eijual
aud are entitled to pursue unmolested
and unfettered, the course which our
common father ordained for them.
Ho that wn are not only pledged to
care for aud defend those who offer
their lives and fortunes iu time of
national peril, but wo must extend
far as possible, those patriotic
teachings to every clime aud country,
wherever our flag moves on. Today,
true to our obligations, you will
find the Woman's Rclcif Corp uot
ouly engaged in Jwtriotio teachings
among the youth and thilrdeu of the
Republic, but In Cuba, Porto Rico,
and in the Philippine Islands, as well
as in Hawaii and among the freed-
men of the south and wherever our
biueficent activities are steadily
flowiug. Love is the projvr name ol
the charity we disjs'lise.
Silently and without ostentation,
iuto tho homes of strauded and im
poverished soldiers, tens and thous
ands of women have beeu going, bear
ing tho oil of Jor for the spirit of
sadness. Tho widowed liavo beeu
succored In their hour of need ; the
orphans have been rescued and placed
in private homes or fraternal Institu
tious, where they have grown up men
and women equipped for the discharge
of the highest citizenship. Ho ex
tended are the agencies throughout
the union founded and fostered by the
Grand Army and Relief Corp., that
no Union soldier, or those dear to
him, ueed ever become a burden upou
the cold charities of the public.
Thousands stand ready with the right
hand of fraternity to relieve them of
their distresses and give them practl

its hand, doing things that make for
peace; and iu tho movement for
national and International arbitration,
which tho National Council of Womeu
has taken up, tho Woman's rtclicf
Corps lias a vital interest. We have
a well established system of patriotic
teaching, which has beeu engrafted
upon tens of thousands of schools of
this country. Not only (he national
organization, but tho statu depart
ments, as well as the suhnidlimto
corps iu our towns, huvu their pariotic
instructors. All are working in ac
cordance with a plan passed down
from tho national conventions, aud Iu
conformance, with these plans the
rights and dutieaof citizenship are In
culcated, together with resect for the
flag and a know ledge ot tho principles
for which it stands. Upon this great
system, humuuo educuliou has ueeu
eurgaftcd, and at the last national
convention, h.cu aud arbitration was
imiKwed upon tho attention of every
Cor.s. The first great Imls-tus to
internal arbitration was glvcu by
Cljsscs .4. Grant, when, ill the, face of
fierce otiHisition, ho submitted to a
ourt of arbitration the difficulties
between the United States and Great
Britain, growing out of tint Civil I
war. Eviry Union veteran who has
filled tho presidential chair, or held
any high office ot trust and userui-
uoas iu the United States has been
committed to a similar policy. Mke
our first president, Guorgo Washing-;
tun, they have held thut war was tliu
last dread lsal of nations, and
should never be resorted to until all
influences for tho lemovsl of obstacles
which nieiiance our liberties had Ih.cu
exhausted. Thus peace and arbitra
