AppIegaJe OrcK&rdisI Planting
Charles Smith, who resides on the
west side of Applegate river near its
confluence with Kogue river, was in
Grant Pass Monday and was a caller
at the office of Fruit Inspector Me
serve to investigate the merits of the 1
Sampson spray solution. Mr. Smith i
stated that never before has there '
been such interest taken in the fruit
iudustry in his neighborhood as now !
and that every farmer is pruning and
spraying their trees. The feasts hav
ing held their own heretofore against
the farmer's home-made spray Mr.
Smith stated that his neighbors and
himself were going to try the steam
pressure made solution from Sampson
Bros., fiiolorv in Grants Pass.
More fruit trees are being planted
this Winter on the Lower Applegate
section than in the prveious five yearn
is the report of Mr. Smith. He has
an orchard cf four acres and now
that a systematic effort is bing made
to subdue the pests he intends to in
crease the number of liis trees. Hav
ing "never tiad a failare of a peach
crop he is planting largely to that
frnit. By reason of their early and
prolific bearing and ready sale Mr.
Smith has found peaches more pro
fitable to him than apple!). Mr.
Smith's good fortune in never losing
a peach crop from frost is also that
of all the Applegate orchardists Jfor
nil report the peach a sure bearer
with them. It is a proven fact that
the Appb-g-Ue Valley is absolutely
fre. from the late spring froH that
so frequently tiring ruin to the peach
crop in other section of Kogue Kivi r
Valley. This great advantage will
be sure to make of Applegite Valley,
, which is 30 miles long, one of the
greatest peach district of the Pacific

found the key. No accessory so elabo
rate he has not acquired. Infinite
painstaking and expense are bagatelles
to him. Maro's Magio is so original
in conception and presentation, and
his resources so unlimited, he is able
to gratiiy bis expectant audience
with something new each year. His
repertoire consists almost entirely of
his own experiments. Each of Maro's
trioks are paylets full of mystery,
grace and humor and the deftness
with which they ars executed as

L. H. Yonker, formerly a Mlohigan
resident tried Southern California
but finding that much boomed section
was not the mosey making frnit dis
trict claimed for it and last year be
came to Rogue River Valley and
bought piece of hill land near Mer
lin. The land had a small orohard
on it which with the cnltivation
that he has given it has made snob an
enoooraglng growth ; he is confident
that ha can make fruit raising profit
able on it. He is planting this Spring
118 apples, 100 pears, 100 peaches and
600 grapes on his place. While the
soil Is deep hill clay loam he Is fur
ther loosening it np by boring deep
where each tree is to be set and put
ting down a charge of giant powder.
This thoroughly loosens the ground
down for several feet thus enabling
the tree roots to penetrati deep into
the moist earth and to withshtaud dry
weather better. This shaking up of
the subsoil will create a cistern un
der eaoh tree that will hold the water
low down after the rains and then to
line by capallary attraction when the
dry weather of Summer comes.
