Roue River Fruit Notes t
Profitable Pointers Keg-rding th Industry Gathered From
Various Sources in This Favored Section of Oregon.
Talking bout fresh berries and
fruit bring gathered in Oregon at
Thanksgiving .time, as was the case
h're in Josephine county, tbe Courier '
can tell of ome of the finest of Tokay
grates which grew in the yard of
O. H. Sampson, corner of Fifth and
C street, Grant Pass and which were
gathared on New Year's day. Thev
were dtcidtdly delectable, as the
Courier force can well attest and were
pronounced first-clan in every par
ticular. And there were more where
these came from. Mr. Sampson i tbe
cannery man and makes specialty
of looking out for fro it of all kinds,
but nowhere has he found any nioer
grapes than those grown in bi own
W. S. Barrie, after trying his
best to make dairying fay in this re
gion, has concluded that be can do
much better growing fruit and he ha
therefore purchased choice 15 acres
of suitable orchard, land here in the
dge of the oily, out on Sixth street
and now he will proceed to try hi
hand in this line of work. Be is
very enthusiastic over the matter and
see a great future for this industry
in this favored valley.
Commenting upon the movement of
tbe Josephine county fruit growers to
name their respective farm the
Lakeriew Herald has this comment to
make: "While the above will be all
right, no doubt, in Josephine county,
we should think it would be a good
plan to use here In connection with
th Ftoit Growers' Union. It would
enable each grower to get credit for
hi labor and would also create
demand for his
log bis name en
fruit, aa by bav
his boxes it would
guarantee the purchaser against get
ting bad fruit, and as the Oregon iao
lays, if your neighbor shipped (cab
by and wormy apples, h would get
the credit, and Dot the whole comma
County Fruit Inspector Elimann Is
flndlog that bis i no child's job and
that th,e undertaking of trying te
latisfy everybody is truly a gigantlo
on. But be feel confident that in
theday to oome ome people who are
aot feeliag like blessing blm, will
think mor favorably of hi efforts
to better tbe fruit conditions in Jose
phlne coonty. He propoes to do
the square thing by the growers, as
nearly aa he can and it be make
mistake, be says tbey will be of the
"head and not the heart." for he is
conscientious In the matter, even
though some fo'ko are inclined to
misconitrae his motive.

"When ntvut ir.oo.iHi ml'.i from
Newtown, less than a century ago,
a c' arming district on Long Island,
N. Y, tbe place where the fatuous
Newtown Pippio originated, is now
the Second ward of Qoeeosboroogb in
Greater New York. They are hav ng
adispute over the naming and re
naming of their streeti. One psry
insists on sacrificing old names snd
substituting such misfits as Aji
avenue, Neptune avenue, Venus
avenue, and so oa, for Hone Brook
road. Old Shell road, Feather Bed
lane, and tbe like. Among the h'a-
torio names that have bees sacrificed
is Washington street, which was laid
out through field in which Washing

Sons, who have been engaged In the
noriery business, very extensively
and successfully, at Vaslion, Wah.,
are the people who are proposing to
start up the new industry which is
certainly much needed in this region.
One of tbe sons has been in Grants
Pass for (he past week, going into
details and gathering information,
which shows conclusively that they
propose to go in with tbe idea of giv
ing tbe people of this valley an np-to-date
nursery. He state that tbe firm
hss practically deolded to oome here
and that now about all that is lack
ing is Ithat tbey secure the minute
details which they find are neceessry.
He is oapttvated (with the climate,
well pleased with the people and likes

County Frnit Inspector E. O. Arm
strong has been engaged for some
time in making ao examination of the
orcharda of Marlon oouoty growers
and is now serving formal notioe on
those whose orohards were found to be
affected, calling on them to clean up
their tress, spray them and take such
steps as are necessary to prevent th
spread of any affection which the
trees msy show evidence of having.
Mr. Armttrong states that there i
considerable Baa Jose scale in the
oouoty and that no paina will be
spared to keep the pet ander control.
The inspector states that wbile it is
too early to say with certainty what
next year's fro it crop will amount to,
there is every indication that it will
be larger even than tbat of last season.
Mr. Armstrong baa compiled some
interesting figures on the vslue of the
Marion county fruit crop for the past
