ticulture, the state hoard having con
trol of the enforcement of the pent
Ihwm. and not bv borinir the trees and
inserting tulphor or any other ma
terial. This method of fighting pests
by inoculating the trees or roots
with some preparation is as old as the
I first coming of the pests, aud though
' a hundred means have been tried all
have proven failures, lhe erratic
charaacter of some of the pests like
the Han Jose scale has led persons to
Ixdieve that they had fooud a ma
terial that inserted in an auger hole
in the tree would be taken op by the
sap and carried to the bark ti the
death of the peats. An instance of
how an orchard "ill be free of scale
while all the orchards ull about will
be reeking with pests .was to be seen
ill i ... cXard on the Wheeler
farm, two miles north of Grants Pass.
The Uulon shipped a quantity of
pear from this orchard that were
absolutely free from scale while pears
on trees less than a half mile distant
were worthless from scale. This or
chard had not been sprayed for three
yean but it was free from scale, while
this year it is liable to tie alive with
the pests. Warts are equally as er
ratic and there are persons who be
lieve that to walk around the haru
with a cob in your hand will drive
the troublesome pests from your
fingers yet the only sure way is to
spray the wart with an acid solution.
While persons of au experimenting
turn of mind have bored trees and
pat iu sulphur, vitrol and many
other chemicals aud driveu nails into
the trunks and did all manner if
queer tilings yet the only sure method
is by spraying. The experts of the
Department of Agriculture and of
the (State Agricultural Colleges and
also hundreds of careful orchanlists
have tried all manner of fighting
fruit tree pest and every method
that had the leust merit ha 1hcii
thoroulily tried. Huii inoculating
trees proven a suiouas it would
have been in general use S'i years ago
aud the fully f I.OUO.UOO invented in
spray in.irhliies iu the I'liited States
would have benu saved to the fruit

nursery agent of this city and for
merly an orange grower in Florida,
states that he kDew of orange growers
of that state tryiDg the boring method
18 years ago to caoibat the orange

House Hill 3'o permits the indis
criminate killing of all owls, which
is a great mistake. Houso Bill
permits the so-called "apple bird" to
bedistroyed without limit. "Apple
bird" is a local application knowu
only to the framers of this bill. It
may refer to a robin, chickadee,
flycatcher, Bparrow, throBh. grosbeak,
or any other bird that lives about an
apple tree. Many of these species are
of the highest economic value -why
permit their destruction?
The work of the Audubon Society
and the efforts of honiane societies i
and other organizations are educa-1
tional. They try to encourage child- I
ren aud to teach them to protect and
love wild birds, and in this connection j
there ia a side to the question that
has its importance, even though it
may be called sentimental.
Under our present law, we have a
check upon the tendency of the boys
to kill useful song birds for sport.
Under House Bill 3157, the gate we
have relied upon is thrown wide open
and the boys may roam the fields and
woods with sling shot and gun to
shoot all owls, blackbirds, wood
peckers, and under the term, "apple
birds," tiie tauagers, robins, chinpiug
sparrows, flycatcher?, waxwiugB,
thrushes, grosbeaks, chickadees, and
all others that live about our orchards.
We wish it clearly understood that
the Audubon Society is not defending
birds merely from a seutimental
8t iiiid point. We are defuuding song
birds as a class, becauHo the Depart
ment of Agriculture at Washintgou
has proved beyond doubt that they are
of rual economic value to mau.
We cannot agree with Mr. Perkins
of Medford, who told us that ho con
sidered birds more harmful than
henefii-ial. Ui told tne further that
he could net along better without the
mrds thau with them, because they
pec ked and destroyed so much of his
fruit, lie stated emphatically he had
been shoot inn birds that came iuto his
orchard aud would continue to do to,
even if it was coutrary to our present
Now, if there are certain birds in
lexaliess of boring trees and filling the 1 the Koue Hiver Valley that are do

the followiug circular letter to the
clerks of the various school districts:
Grants Pass, Ore., Feb. 'il, 1U07.
By this mail I am sending you a
district library blank, ou which I have
put the amount of your library ap

You will, with the help of your
board and the teacher, select books
for your library from lists aent to
you, beiug careful in selecting books
that yoo do not have now in your
library, unless it should be some books
of wnich yon want more than one
Have your board add to this amount
as much more as possible out of the 15
per cent of the state and county ap-
portinments and from the spe-ial tax
of your district, or from any other
These order blanks are to be made
out, signed and sent to me at any
time not later than August 1, 1U07.
I do this at this time because in July
our schools are out, our teachers are
gone, and we have so very much other
work to do that we sometimes neglect
these small but important things.

MOXNETTE for 47 tons of ore, paid to them by the Selhy

in the immediate section of the famouHM OHA K. One lease
is on the Northwest end of the VELVET, considered by -wrts
to be as valuable a piece of ground as three la in the

crocs this ground, proved by diamond drills and surrounding
workings; in fact there are six producers closely adjaoent.
Another lease is on the SILVER PICK, adjoining and end
litieing the famous January claim of the GOLDFIELD MIN
ING CO now one of the properties of the Fir TV MILLION
DOLLAR CONSOLIDATION. The January has produced
more than a million. This lease alone is soffioient guarantee
The third lea.'e is on the C. O. D. which adjoins the At
lanta. Milltown and is on the trend of the MOHAWK,
FLORENCE, COMBINATION FRACTION and JUMBO ore
zones. Suveral neighboring leases are already in ore.
The compnay also owns four full claims, 80 acres of
ground, adjoining and being the extension of the GOLD

and upon which a complete hoisting plaut U being erected.

Work is already under way on one of the lease and will
