The Thorns. Orchard.
The orchard of R. Thomaa Is one of
the finest In this part of the country.
This year he has shipped a consider
able amount of "apples and pears and
both art of the flues t quality. This
fruit grower is justly prond of his
peach, pear and a pule trees. He has a
fine lot of large English Walnut trees
but a late frost destroyed the walnuts
this year. This season is the first in
the history of thes trees that tney
have been injured by freezing. Mr.
Thomas is euibnsiaatic for irrigation
for this part of the Rogue River val
ley. He says that water will add (100
value to every acre of good land in
this section and many fruit growers
will be enabled to clean op from $500
to 600 per acre when irrigation be
comes a fixed fact
