This contest is for the frait districts

It is open to the world. A space
sufficient for large exhibit will be
given to each district which enter
the contest, and it may mnle such use
of it as it desire. 1 he prize aggre

in addition a beantifal diver onp
which will cost $100 and which will

arranged, it being fot the best speci
men of a new apple. A number of
growers throoghout the country have
written that they have in their or
chards apple which belong to no
known variety. Manager Neely is of
the opinion tbat many of these apples
belong to some variety with whioh
the grower is not acquainted and this
contest was arranged to determine if
possible, the name of inch apples
and if they are leally new applt to
give them a name.
Last Saturday at Medford was held
a meeting of vast importance to the
froit grower of that vioioity. Pro
fessor U'Gata, the pear blight
spec alist from Wat.hingtou D. C.
was the principal speaker and his
talk was full of wit and wisdom.
Following are a few exrtact from
what he said: If yon are tired of th
pear baeine? and want to get oat of
it. jnet quit work and the blight will
take yon out.
The work in regard to eradicating
blight ia never "pretty" Rood. You
never use that term in regard to egK.
they are either good or bad.
If yon'do not want to tats time to
grow pears right, better cut cot yoni
own tree ai d bny yoor pear of yonr
neighbor rather thau let the blight
take yonr and his also. Irrigation
of pears is dangerous and unnecessary
even on granite soil. Live pear
blight is always damp. In this re
spect it differs from anthraonoae.
Pear blight is incurable. No known
spray will effect it. Cut it out quick.
In regard to Bordeaux fpray it
should be applied to all tree as the
cheapest possible Insurance policy.
Selby blnestoue is no good. Buy
rastern article tt sting 95 to 98 per
cent. Bordeaux well made is By blue
in color. Any ther shade is wrong.
Bluettone of itself is a valuable stinm
laut to growth, similar to a fertilizer.
All spraying is preventative, not
curative. Dou't use old Bordeaux
spray ; it is dangerous. Don't make
it or keep it in metal tanks or
buckets. It won't sUy.
Mr. Hoover was introduced a the
greatest pear blight fighter in the
valley. He said : "I have 1000 trees
in bearing. When Prof. O'Uara ar
rived they were practically gone bnt
he has saved my orchard. I hav not
a case of blight left. If I had bad
each advice a year ago it would have
saved m $5000."
A. H. Carson spoke of the good
work being dona and encouraged the
growers by hi forcjful remarks and
nrged them to use the professor by
taking him oat into their orohards,
remarking that be was not a police
man, had no axe to grind or anything
