SIX FRUIT GROWERS

Tbe orchards that caD be seen la num
ber! in Josephine connty in which the
trees are diseased and dying and the
froit inferior aud fail of blemishes
and worms and covered with scale is
proof that the farmers of this county
are badly in need of education in the
art of horticulture, tbat they may be
able to make their orcharls a profit
to themelvea, instead of a loss as so
many are. With this end in tiew the
Grants Pass Frnit Growers' Union
has arranged in connection with the
State Argiculture ' College to hold
a series of farmers' institutes and
frnit growers' meetings In Josephine
oonuty I ho first week in September.
Td arrange and bare charge cf the de
tails for these meetings the Frnit
Growers' Union appointed a com
mittee of three at each place.
Ihe following is the schedale of the
places and date of meeting and the
names of the committeemen :

These meetings will have the best
array of talent ever at a frnit grow
ers meeting in Rogne River Valley
and the instructions that orohardlsts
will receive on all phases of their
business that embraces selecting the
right soil for an orchard, choice of
varities, manner of planting, cutliva
tlng, . pruning, spraying, thinning,
picking, grading, packing and market
ing will be from specialists, each
thorough in bit line of work. It
wooold not be possible to gtt the
practical pointers oo fruit raising
that can be had at these meetings at
the cost of bat one day's time spent
in attending, even though a person
should spend $25 for books and paper
and spend 30 days in hard study.
From the interest that is being shown
and with tbe effort that is being made
by the Frnit Growers' Union these
meetings promise to be the largest
attended of any farmer gathering ever
held in Southern Oregon. At Grants
Pass, Provolt, and probably Morphy,
Wllderville and Lee district evening
sessions may be held in addition to
tbe morning and afternoon sessions.
This matter will be decided in the
near future by tbe local committees.
At Provolt, Murphy, Wilderville and
Lee district, basket dinners will be
had, so that farmors and their wives
may attend tbe fall boars of each
session. Then it is tbe plan to have
a social hoar at noon that the far
mers and their wives may know each
other better and to talk over the
points thev bave heard in the meeting.
A question box will be a strong fea
ture in tbe program.
How Hood River bas become so
famous as a froit district as to
be better known to some people in the
East than the state of Oregon aBd its
frnit land should sejl from 1250 to
$1000 an acre is a matter tbat Rogne

War Against Consumption.

the "white plague" tbat claims so
many victims each year. Foley's

consumption. Do not risk yonr health

Send the Courier to your friend, so
he can learn tbe facts in regard to the
famous Roane River Vallev
New Mill at Braden Mine.
Tbe new ten stamp mill at the
Braden mine began running on Wed
nesday morning. Operations have
been delayed for some time, owing to
the non-arirval of belts aud ether parts
of the mill. The Braden mill is the
newest, aud most up to-date mill in
Southern Oregon and in a later issue
we will gir$ a more detailed ac
count of tbe mine and its equip
ment. Gold Hill News. .
The mine was acquired last winter
by J. W. Opp, aod associates, who
have equipped it, and it bids fair to
become as big a gold producer as the
Opp mine of Jacksonville, that was
formerly owned by Mr. Opp.
Children in Pain
never cty as . do children who are
suffering from hunger. Such is the
cause of all babies who cry and are
treated for sickness, when they really
are suffering from hunger. This is
caused from their food not being as
similated bot devoured by worms. A
few doses of White's Cream Vermifuge
will cause them to cease crying and
begin to thrive at once. Get a trial.
