Fruit Growers Union Have County
Inspector Appointed Treo Own
. era Will Have to Sprav.
A. H. Canon, commissioner for
Son tern Oregon oo the Stats Board of
Horticulture, nit a number of the
members of the Froit Growers Union
at the office of Secretary Moserve in
thii city last Saturday to sign the
necessary oertifloate to file with the
ooanty oourt to have Charles MeBerve
appointed froit inspector for Jose
phine ooanty. Owing to the badly
diseased condition of many orchards
It will be necessary to have spraying
for autliraonose began so soon as the
fruit is picked. In order that the
dilatory tree owners may be forced
to spray at the right period to kill the
spores of this most deadly of tree di
sease, Mr. Carson arranged with
Conuty Judge Jewell to have Mr.
Meserve appointed at once and to that
ud a special session of the ooanty
corut will be called the last of this
week or so soon as one or both of the
oounty commissioners oan come to
There is likely to be little opposl-
tl m to the enforcement of the state
law for eradicating' the pests as it is
oouoeded that if a vigorous campaign
is not at once bogan and carried on
with the same thoroughness as is
done at Hood River, where wormy,
scaly fruit Is almost uukuown, fruit
raising in Josephine county will lie at
an end Ave years hence. It is t'.e
purpose of the Fruit Growers Union
to have the law strictly enforced and
all trees that have not been thoroughly
sprayed by the Unit of November ac
cording to the spray formulas and
regulation of the State Hoard of Hor
ticulture awl the work of eradicating
the pests well under way, will be nut
dowu by orlr of the fruit inspector
and the expense will be a lien upon
the laud to be collected by the sheriff
for the oonnty. Non-resident tree
owners will be givn no more latitude
than residents and it will be kill off
the pasts or cut down the trees or pay
the county for doing it.

A Ce.se of Hindsight.
The following from the Medford
Tribune illustrates very foroibly the
old saying that bind sight is better
than foresight :
"The case of Uncle Sam Beuuett
who lives near Medford, while not
entirely typical of the way that the
fruit industry Jibs been conducted in
this country, is, In a general way the
experience of a number of orchard 1st s
of the Rogue River Valley.
"Mr. Bennett had an orchard set
out in Newtown Pippin apples, but
being convinced that by the time that
they came into bearing, the market
would be overstocked and not having
a very high opinion of that rartionlar
kind of apple, he proceeded to grub
out the trees aud left only an acre and
a half, just to see what the result
" He has found out now. Yesterday
a party of Medfordites went out to
his ranch and inspected the crop on
this acre aud a half tract. They found
that the trees were bearing sufficient
apples to fill 1000 gathering boxes, out
of which from 1000 to 1200 boxes of
shipping apples can be secured.
"These are sure to net Mr. Benuet
ft. 50 per box, thus making the pro
duct of the oue aud a half acre bring
15(H) to flHOO. "

Mr. Willard in Monto Crleto.
A most excellent company headed
by America's foremost, romantio
young actor, Mr. Lee Willard, will
appear in "Monte Cristo," the strong
est of all thrilling, romantio plays,
and the one that will live for ever.
Mr. Willard 's capabilities are well
known on the coast, having toured
two seasons ago in the Christian, as
John Storm. He comes this year
heading his own company, composed
of selected Eastern people and tbe
papers of our large cities, snob as
Tacoma, are load in bis praise. Mr.
Willard has a most brilliant future
ahead of him, being as he is a most
successfully, clever actor.
Ashland Commercla.1 College.
The attendance of the home students
this term at the Ashland Commercial
College is much greater than ever be
fore, as well as a larger patronage
from abroad. The coarse has been
strengthened with the latest ideas, in
every department, revised text books
have been adopted, and up-to-date
appliances of every kind are used.
A no more thorough and complete
course of business training is given
anywhere, while the cost of securing
the coruse here is only about one-half j
the expense in the larger cities. The i
instruction Is mostly individual
which is of very great advantage to
The fame of Josephine county as a
hunter's paradise has evidently gone
abroad for on Friday H. W. Corning
of Cleveland, and W. P. and L. S.
Thompson of New York with vallet
arrived to spend some time in the
hills at the mouth of the Applegate.
Helpers, dogs aud baggage have been
arriving for the past several days and
it is safe to say that the gentlemen
will have a hunt combined with all
the oouiforts possible. The pack of 11
bear dogs is the Fame pack which has
accompanied President Roosevelt on
bis famous bear hunts.
The horse is a coward nature made
him so an unreasoning coward, who
fears everything with which he is un
familiar: nothing, however horrible,
to which association has a customed
him ; a creature given over to sudden
and uncontrollable panics, and, in
their paroxysms, stopping at no in
jury to self or to those who cherish
him. His overpowering instinct in
such cases is flight; frequently, bat
not alwajs, associated with a determi
nation to clear himself from any ham
pering surroundings. He has no feel
ings ot revenge unless trainea to
cunning by the abuse or the mistakes
of mankind, aud, when thee prevail,
he rarely wrecks his vengeance upon
any particular individual, but upon
humanity in general, with no regard
for age or sex.
The sentiment of revenge is so
usually associated with cowardice
that it may almost be clashed as a
phase of that instinct. Cowardice
manifests itself in equine connection
in many ways with one it is terror
of the dark, which will make him
kick his stall nil night, doing himself
posBibly serious injniy; yet in niue
cases oat of 10, a light left in the
stable will so completely reassure him
that he will not lift a foot. Another
Is alarmed at blowing paper, yet
stands yawning while cannon are fired
in his face. It is this very attribute
of cowardice which enables as to han-1
die the animal as we do; to train
hm to our will and for our purpose ;
whioh makes him, once he is
thoroughly deceived and intimidated, j
the useful servant we find him; not a 1
willing slave, but one who fears again
to tempt reprisals which have always
proved ineffective; and who labors for
us because he has been made to do so,
and fears to rebel. Give to the most
docile the idea that he may success-1
folly disobey, and presto, yon shall
discover another attribute of tbe '
coward for your steed forthwith be-:
comes a bully, and a dangerous one ; j
since each little act of rebellion
which succeeds awakens him to the
idea that he need not obey, aud that
in power and will he is superior.
Forthwith disaster impends.
The horse does uot love man nor
does he delight to labor in his inter
est. If you think yours dees, turn
him loose in the road and see wheter
he will follow yon; bat do not try
this unless fond of pedestrian exer
cise. Troe, you may train him by
the use of certain appliances to follow
you through the fields, flood cr fire,
but ho will do this not, because he
adores you, but because vou have sue
cessfally deceived him into thinking '
that he can unt help himself, and
that cue idea dominates him. i
Do you imagine that it is personal j
regard for Cinders & Co. which im
pels those splendid draft horses to toil
and strain at the live-ton load? Or
that it is adoration which lauds Mr.
Spenders' roadster iu front in a brush
