For San Jose
Scale and use ,
son's Concentrated Lime
and Sulphur Solution
Scale lives and works all the year round. Don't forget this. As the old
6cale dies, the new is ready to carry on the destruction of our orchards.
The scale is less rigorous in the fall, and more easily and surely destroyed
than in any other reason of the year. Therefore now is the best time to attact it
and kill it. If you spray now, many a valuable tree will be saved that otherwise,
because of the scale, would not retain life enough to start up in the spring.
YOU HAVE MORE TIME NOW There is less wind to scatter and waste
the spray, and make it hard to cover every part. Then, too, you cannot tell what
may happen to prevent thorough Bpraying in the fall. BUT ABOVE ALL, the
results of FALL SPHAYING are absolutely certain, provided, of course, that you
SPRAY with SAMPSON'S LIME AND SULPHUR SOLUTION.
These are all "Spray Facts"
We claim no wonderful chemical discovery in this spray, but we do claim
most emphatically that
Sampson's Lime and Sulphur Solution always produces
satisfactory results, and does no injury. There is no
better spray manufactured than Sampson's Lime and
Sampson's Lime and Sulphur Solution is a clear, cherry-colorrd eolntion
free from sodiment. It is guaranteed to test 30 degrees Baume. If youe dealers
cannot supply you, write to us. BE SURE YOU USE SAMPSON'S SPRAY.

As there are many oid vineyard
In the country that are not com
mercial varieties which the owners
desire to change to those that are
commercial, I will say that this
change can be easily niado by graft
ing. To grub out the old vines and
plant new takes five or six years be-
for the vines would become profit
able, while grafting the old stumps
to desired varieties the secoud year
after grafting the grafted vines will
' bear ;i ht&vy crop.
! Scions for grafting Bhould be cut
about February 1st For making
the scions tdlio the best matured
canes of the previous year's growth
ana put away In a cool, dry place
packed In moss to keep dormant.
You can begin grafting the first of
; March and If your scions are prop
I eny kept, I. e., dormant, you can
I graft until April 15th.
I The scion for grafting should con
tain three buds if short Jointed, two
buds if long.
In shaping the scion to bo set in
the Btock, it Is cut as we cut an ap
pie or pear scion; with a sharp knife
cut your wedge well up past the
lower bud. leaving the scion thicker
on the bud side, so that the pressure
of the stock when the scion Is
placed, will contact with the inner
bark of the scion. The Bclon should
be well shoved down in the cleft of
tne stock, so that the bud will be at
least halt an Inch down from the top
of the stock, setting the scion at a
slight angle to the bark of the stock
and then contact of inner bark of
scion and stock will be aure. The
old vine to be grafted must he cut
off six inches below the surface of
the ground. It the stock Is very
large a thin sharp chisel with a
broad blade is used to split the
stock to admit the scion. The split
ting of the Btock need not be at the
center, but one side where the grain
of wood runs straight After scion
Is placed, use binding twine to tie
round the stock to press firmly stock
to scion. Use no grafting wax, but
bring the fine earth in over the
stock and around the scion, firming
It carefully. If scion after being
placed should extend above the sur
face, mound up with fine earth so as
to cover tho scion about an Inch.
The grafting of the pear Is a simple
operation, and if my suggestions are
followed success Is sure.
