Southern Oregon Getting All the
Pests of World and Farmers
Must Fight Them.
R. Carter who has a farm on Evans
creek above Winter, was in Grants
Pass Wednesday. Mr. Carter in ad
dition to other crops grows onions and
beans. These crops have heretofore
proven quite profitable bnt a pest has
made such luroads on his onions that
be will have to cease their cultivation
unless the pest can be eradicated.
From a patch that two years ago
Mr. Carter harvested 1500 pounds of
tine onions this year he only got 24
sacks and must of them so badly in
jured by the pest as to be almost un
salable. Mr. Carter bnnght to the
Courier otlioe several onions that are
affected with the pest. The ouious
are quite large and of fine shape and
would sell at a good price aid they
not have a decayed spot on the bot
tom of each. The pest, which is
evidently a fungus, attacked the
onions just as they are completing
their growth and causes a decay that
first destroys the roots and then
spreads up iuto the b'dy ot the ouiou
producing a dry rot that iu a month
or so destroys the ouiou. As to the
canse of the pest, or how it was in
troduced into his field Mi. Carter has
no knowledge, lie first noticed the
pest two years ago, but it did little
damage to his onion crop. Last year
it destroyed fully half the crop and
this year he lost practically the
whole of his onions.
This experience of Mr. Carter's is
another proof that farmers institutes
should be held at least ones each year
in every farming district iu Oregon.
Had there been farmers institutes in
this section aud had Mr. Carter at
tended and have heatd Prof. Cord ley
the entomologist at the State Ag
ricultural College and who has the
reputation of being one of the best
posted men in the United States on
the varions pests hat destroy the
farmer's crops, give the addresses that
he does on how to ideutify and how to
combat the pests it is quite probable
that instead of being driven out of
ouiou growing with a financial loss
Mr. Carter would he continuing
growing what has beeu one of his
most profitable crops. Rogoe River
Valley through its isolation, has been
very free from the moltitudo of pests
that are now so plentiful iu all the
older farinirg districts of the roan try
bat that favored condition is a thing
of the past, for through the importa
tion of seed fruits and the straw and
other stuff used in packing goods nil
the insect fongas anil weed pests f
the United States, Eurnie and Asia
are now to be found in Southern
Oregon. These pests are certain to
render farming unprofitable to the
easy-going non-progressive man hat
they will prove to be no serious
handicap to the farmer who is pro
gressive and who attends fanners in
stitutes and keeps ported on all the
methods of identifying and combat
The onions from Mr. Carter, s field
will be taken to the farmers institute
Iu tins city, Saturday, for the nse of
Prof. Cordley in explaining the nature
of the pest and to how eradicate it.
Prof Cordley requests that those at
tending the institutes at Grants I'ass,
Eugln Point, Jacksonville, Prove t
and Kerby, bring with them speci
mens of all the pests that are known
to exist in their section, also to tiling
sxcimeiis of diseased fruit, vegeta
bles and trees. Many persons are nut
able to identify, even the common
lefts iu their orchard and field and
with sieclmeus Prof. Cordley will
be alle to give them instructions that
wll enable them to recognize their
eueniies. , and to know how to drive
them from their farm p.

William Martin Hestou, carrying
a nice new suit case and attracting no
more attention than any one of the
many Tea Moines visitors these days,
arrived iu the city yesterday aud is
ready to take np Ills work as head
coach of the Drake university football
squad. Although he is cue of the
greatest football players the couutry
has ever turned out, he is not the
sort of a man who will attract atten
tion. Quiet, gentlemanly aud' au
interesting talke', it is a pleasure to
meet him and he impresses one more
Ms a young attorney thin a hero of ihs
gridirou. He arrived in Dos Moines
early yesterday uioruing and weut
directly to Hopkius Bros' store, where
he will be employed ant il the train
iug season opens a week from Mon
day, ho sient the morning meeting
those who were interested iu Drake
football and was entertained at
luncheon at the Savory with some
sporting goods and nevvspaier meu. Iu
the afternoon he went to the Golf
aud Couutry Club to wituess the
finals iu the Diehl handicap, after
calling upon Dr. Mnuilaw at Dtake
and conferring with him and dipt.
Tom ISurchaiii of the nuiversity team.
Mr. I lest on is quartered at the Cham
berlain and will remain there this
week before moving to Uuiverslty
"Of course I cannot be expected to
say much about the team this year
nor the prospects. You peop'e here
know more about that than I do,"
said Mr. Hestoii as he refus-d a cigar
and leaned back in one of Mr. Hop
k i n q ' easy chairs.
"While I should like to make a
good showing ngainst my old team,
Michigan, and win all the games we
possibly can, onr chief effort will be
directed towards winning the state
champlotithip. 'Ilia will he the
g eatest feather ill our caps this year
"To accomplish this we must win
from Iowa and Ames, ami these will
therefore be our biggest games this
fall. li-ith w ill be hard games, nut 1
hope to h.ive the tiaiu III the best of
shape for each.
"Should we win the state cham
pionship this year we can look for
honors outside tho state next year,
but this year it is the stato cham
pionship we are after."
When asked what hi thought of the
Drake schedule for this fall, Mr
Hestnn said: "I like the schedule
all right, with one excel tion. That
is the game w ith the Haskell Indians.
It comes just before the Iowa game,
and it will be one of the hardest bat
tles wu shall have. It would be un
fortuiiHtii if any of our men should be
h i I up for the Iowa game. Had the
Haskell game been scheduled to come
after the Hawkoyo game it would not
make so much difference
"Aside from this the schedule is a
good one. though a hard one. I shall
try to arrange for some mid week
games with high schiol teams, too.
I like that sort of practice, for a
team w ill play harder against an out
side team I han ts own scrubs."
Althuugli Ileston talks entertain

others out, especially to gi t opinions
regarding the Drake material, her
