Injurious to horticulture have been
kept from spreading extensively in the

cheeked by the weather which was
unfavorable for their Increase, also by
the prompt application of the solutions
recommended for summer spraying,

It is eaeeutlal fnr all persons in this
state who have fruit trees now growing
and all who are planting orchards
to exercise the moat diligent euro, mak
ing It a special duty to prohibit the
importation oi fruit peeta, and in every
way so far as possible, prevent their
spread by exterminating those found,
if any, each on their own premises.
Tho board required that nurseries in
this state, and the nursery stock which
is Imported and offered for sale or dis
tribution, must be inspected, and if
found to be infested with Injurious in
sects, that it shall be disinfected.
Those who are receiving trees fur
planting from nurseries, agents or
dealers should require that said nur
sery stock be free from pests. Certifi
cates are given by members of the
board to those selling, whose stock has
been inspected in this state.
The remedy found to be most satis

been employed to destroy Ban Jose
scale, woolly aphis and the larvae of
other injurious insects, both in our
sister south on this coast and also by
some of the largest orchardlste in this
state, is: Unslacked lime, 40 pounds;
sulphur (best powdered) 20 pounds;
salt, IS concentrated lye (America Lye
Co. brand), 2 pounds; water to make
I gallons. , ,
The good' advice contained in the
above applies as strongly to Oregon as
to our sister state and should be put
into practice here with energy atid dis
patch. Eternal vigilance is now the
price of good clean fruit lu this stute,
and only by constant care and watch
fulness can we hope to place our fruit
where Oregon fruit should be.
We need more active horticulturists
and more local boards, and as well,
more stringent laws looking to the
destruction - of the numerous pests
which injure our fruit. We can easily
lead in the fine' fruit line If will, but
to do so we must get rid of the pests
wich infest our orchards. There are
by far too many old run-down and
run-out orchards, In this country es
pecially, to furnish - breeding places
for pests, to have much success In
keeping new plantations clean, unless
some means can be formed to getting
rid of these breeding places.
.There ought to be pride enough in
our people to cause them to clean up
or destroy tliene nld nrclisrda, but if
there la not, we certainly ought to
have laws stringent enough toefteot
that end, and then see that they are
put in force. A hint in 1 1 lis line to our
legislators may wake them up to the
interests of the people, but the most
neciwary thing is fur the people to
wako up lo their nwn Interest and
make the move without waiting for
the law. Furrr. local boards of horti
culture in every precinct, organize a
county board and thus help on the
work of the slute board, and build up
our fruit industry.
