"Only a band of children whom the

was a remark made last Sonday when
the Sunday sclool children of our

Womans Christian Temperance Union,
marching through the streets to the
Christian church, helped to make the
Temperance rally one long to be re
membered, helped to make King Al

with their pore, young voice', helped

The campaign for the destruction of
the oodlin moth is now on in Rogue
Riter valley aod how to successfully
contend against this the hardest to
eradicate of all the pests is the problem
that is np to the orcbaridsts. how to
spray and what solution to use is well
known to all progressive froit.growers,
for experience has taught them that by
using aa arsenate of lead solution ap
plied to the trees ander a heavy pres
sure in order to drive the spray
through the foliage ana to oover thor
oughly every part of the froit will so
protect the apples or pears that it is
possible to have 88 to 99 per oent
fruit free of worms.
Bat when is the time to spray to do
the moot effective destruction of the
oodlin moth has not been definitely Bat
tled by iven the leading horticultur
ists and by the entomoloigsts of the
agricultural colleges. This indefinite
ness as to ths date to spray is caused
by the fact that the codlin moth has no
regular period of the season for hatch
ing. Climatic aud other, causes not
folly known to entomologists cause a
variation of two to three weeks each
spring and summer in the date of the
appearance of the two broods of moths.
Last spring, according to observations
made by G. W. Taylor, frnit inspector
for Jackson coonty, aod by L. D. Har
ris, manager of the Bear Creek Orch
ard, the first brood of moths made
their appearance in the vicinity of
Medford about May 23. This spring
these experts announce that the moths
began to appear last week, the first
moth to appear from the cocoon was
on May 8, as noted by Mr. Harris In
breeding cages he bad onder observa
tion. The first moth noted by Mr.
Harris last spring was on May 33, and
it was on this date that Mr. Taylor
found the first moth in his oages. As
the climate of this part of the valley
is about the same as at Medford the
moths will appear here nearly on the
same date as there. Therefore orch
ardiats should spray at once, aud
again the last of next week.
It was expected that observations
would be made in this county upon
hatching periods of the codlin moth
tut H. O. Batebam, who had consent
ed to undertake the task on the re
quest of the Fruit Growers Associa
tion, found himself so orowded with
the work of fitting np his new home
in Froitdale district that he could not '
possibly get the time to prepare the
cages, oover a tree and secure the co
coons. He will, though, observe the
hatching of second rrood and give the
froit growers ample notice as to the
time to spray. Mr. Bateham hot re-1
cently moved to this county from
Hood River, where he was one of the
leading orcharding aud nurserymen of
that famons fruit district and he was
alio deputy froit inspector for that
county. He is thorooghly posted on all
features of the fruit pest problem and
as he is a public spirited man aud very
willing to give the fruit growers the
full benefit of knowledge his locating
here will be greatly to the benefit of
the froit industry of Josephine county.
