ROGUE RIVER COURIER. GRANTS PASS, OREGON, AUGUST 31, 1906.
TO HAVE EXHIBIT OF
FRUITS AND PESTS
Fruit Grower Arranging to Show
the Good and B&d of Their
M the fruit growers meeting in
Grant Pasa on Monday, September 8d,
tbere will be present from abroad, in
addition to the upeakeri, many strang
er as well as fruit growers from Jack
ion oonnty and other sections of South
ern Oregon. It has been tbe current
belief all over Oregon that Josephnie
oonnty was only a mining and timber
seotion and tbat tbe fruit growing sec
tion of Kogne River Valley was all in
Jackson county. To prove to those at
tending tbe fruit growers meeting from
a distance that this section of Rogue
River Valley Is one of the banner dig
triots of Oregon for growing high class
fruit it is tbe plan of tbe Grants Pass
Fruit Growers Union to bave a com
plete exhibit at the meeting of all
fruits that are in season in September-
Even those not yet ripe are wanted as
they will show tbe frnlt men quite as
well as ripe frlut their condition.
As many farmers do not know how
to recognize even so general a pest as
tbe Ban Jose scale it is desired tbat or
chardists bring in specimens of every
kind of diseased trees, fruit vegetables,
plants, etc, that they can find. These
pests will be identified by Prof. Cord
ley, entomologist at the State Agral
tural College, who will be present and
tell the farmers bow to reognize the
pests and how to successfully fight
tbem. Thousands of boxes of fine ap
ples and pears are annually lost in this
county because the farmers do not know
how to keep the pests off their trees.
At these fruit growers meetings or
chardists will got more praotioal knowl
edge and how to combat the pests than
could be learned in six months spent
in'reading on the subject. It will pay
every farmer who has even a dozen
fruit trees to 'attend this meeting and
learn how to grow fruit tbat will
bring a profitable price in tht marke
instead of being only St for hog feed.

The orchards that can be seen in num
bers in Josephine oonnty in which the
trees are diseased and dying and the
fruit inferior and fuil of blemishes
and worms and covered witb scale is
proof that tbe farmers of this county
are badly in need of education in the
art of horticulture, that they may be
able to make their orcharlg a rrofit
to themelves Instead of a loss as so
many are. With this end in view the
Grants Pass Fruit Growers' Union
baa arranged in connection with the
State Argiculture College to hold
a series of farmers' institutes and
fruit growers' meetings in Josephine
oouuty the first week in September.
T arrange and bave charge of the de
tails for these meetings the Fruit
Growers' Union appointed a com
mittee of three at each place.
Ihe following is the schedule of the
places and date of meeting and the
names of the committeemen :
Grants Pass, Mon lay,. September

These meetings will have the beet
array of talent ever at a fruit grow

business that embraces selecting the
right soil for an orchard, choice of
verities, manner of planting, cultiva
ting, pruning, spraying, thinning,
picking, grading, packing and market-

the cost of but one day's tinw spent
in attending, even though a person
should spend $25 for books and paper
and spend 30 dsys in hard study.
From the intf rest that is being shown
and with the effort that is being made
by the Fruit Growers' Union these
meetings promise to be the largest
attended of any farmer gathering ever
held in Southern Oregon. At Grants
Paw, Provolt. and probably Murphy,
Wilderville and Lee district evening
sessions may be held in addition to
the morning and afternoon sessions.
This matter will be decided In the
nesr future by the local committees.
At Provolt, Murphy, Wilderville ana
Lee district, basket dinners will be
had, so that farmors and their wives
may attend the full hours of each
session. Then it is the plsn to have
a social hour at noon tbat the far
mers and their wives may know each
nr wror ftnrl to talk over the
points thev bave heard in the meeting.
A question box will be a strong fea
ture in the program.
How Hood River has become so
famous as a fruit district as to
be better known to some people in the
East than the state of Oregon aad its
fruit laud should sell from $250 to
$1000 an acre is a matter that Rogue
