Good apples cannot be grown in acountry free from
cold. So. wherever fine apples are produced, thore must
Tae frost. As frost damage can bo reduced to a liuninmm
Tjy scientific precaution, it is common sense to use every
wactical effort to prevent damage.
Natural conditions in the Rogue River valley are more
favorable to the fruit grower than in any section. At the
same time we have frosts, or we could not produco prize-
winning fruit. It is seldom that the frost works material
injury here, yet it does occasionally. It is to eliminate
11 likelihood of damage that a majority of orchardists
have prepared artificial heating appliances in their groves,
on the principle that an ouonce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure.
The fruit district that can successfully prevent dam
age by frost and damage by pest, is the district that fruit
irrowers are looking for. and that is the reason why produc
ers from sections where it is impossible to overcome these
dangers are centering m the Rogue Kiver valley, wiiere
climatic conditions are so much more favorable than in
other fruit belts. . ". . ZIR5iV! i
The fruit growers of the vallev are in luck to have the
services and aid of Professor O'Gara of the department of
agriculture in fighting both bugs and irost. JJaiiy tore--casts
are made, and the valley has all the advantage of a
local Weather bureau, although congress has refused to
establish one here. Any orchardist can ascertain the de
gree of danger every night during the frost period by
phoning central, the Pacific Telephone & Telegraph com
pany having kindly placed an operator at their disposal
for this purpose. - .--
On another page Professor O'Gara fully explains the
mystery of weather forecasts and how predictions are
made. He explains the meaning of "dew point" and oth
er terms. As a result of observation in the Rogue River
valley, he states: "Serious freezing during the spring
rarely occurs where the dew point is 35 degrees at 7 p. m.
Jbxosts are most likely to occur when the sky is clear ana
ihere is no wind."
The centralization of power in the hands of one man
J. P. Morgan is shown by an article in the New York
World, summarizing his. financial interests. Mr. Morgan
is, without question, the most powerful financial genius
ihat the world has yet seen, wielding a far vaster power
than the Rothschilds or the royal families of Europe and
the okl world.
The grand total of the resources of the companies con
trolled by or affiliated with Mr. Morgan exceeds ten bil
lion dollars. The railroad, industrial, banking and life
insurance companies he directly controls are capitalized
for more than $6,000,000,000; he influences a dozen impor
tant transportation companies, including such great rail
road -systems as the New York Central, the Lake Shore
nd the Santa Fe, with total capitalization in bonds and
stocks exceeding $2,000,000,000. He controls miscellane
ous corporations of magnitude, such as the Telephone and
ZFelegraph trust, the General Electric, the Morgan-Guggenheim
Alaska Syndicate and the Adams Express eom
' pany, with a total capitalization of $700,000,000.
Morgan controls four great banks in New York, Phil-

The Grand Mogul of Wall street possesses such power
'that by a stroke of his pen he can make or break men or
corporations, crush or promote enterprises, bring on stock
.and oven national panics, promote or ruin the prosperity
of nations. And the centralization of power still goes on,
through consolidation of banking, industrial and transpor
tation interests.
Where will it all end, and how long will it bo before
Morgan owns us all?
v There will soon be good angling in the Rogue river and
its tributaries, not for steelhead (rainbow), but for cut
throat and smaller trout, which are through spawning.
Although steelheads can be taken with bait now, they
.are not fit to eat, for they are spawning. This accounts for
their presence in the small streams, and it is a shame to
atch them, not only because there is no sport in it, but
because it destroys the chance of future fishing.
Steelhead will continue to spawn through April, and it
will be the latter part of June before there will be good
fly fishing for tho king of trout. During the spawning

Anglers who hook undersized trout should always mois
ten tho hand before grasping tho fish, otherwise the dry
hand will remove the slime from tho back of the trout, and
it is only a question of time until tho fungus sets in and
the fish will die.

will decide to open a stdio."
In regard to winning the amateur

In the meantime tho young man's
friends nro constantly being regaled

SAN FRANCISCO, March 28.--Tho
wealthy residents of San Fran
cisco nnd Burlingame were thrown
into a flutter today when it was
teamed thnt Walter McCrevy, a
young clubman and social lion

"Tho book," said McCrevy, "is to

and the characters in it nro the men
