L VESTOGK FEA
ALWAYS PESTS TO FIGHT
0NF4 frequently hours fruit-raising doeriod on nocouut
of tlio numerous pests it is noeessury to Tight to in
ure n crop or oven mi orchard. Tot almost any other
industry is eondueted with equal hazard. External vigi
lance is the price of success in almost every line nowadays.
The orchardist often has to fight the pest hut the
farmer fights the drouth. Crops of all kinds failed last
year in certain distriMs of the middle west duo to a hlis
tering sun and lack of moisture. Then unusual tiold often
kills the winter grain. Tho orchardist has Iho advantage
ho has learned how to successfully fight tho frost as
well as tho pests.
Blight ruins largo areas of orchard when it is not vig
orously comhattod. but vigilance will successfully conquer
it. The owners of tho celebrated Hloch pear orchard in
the Santa Clara valley, who wcro here hist week, stated
that blight was not feared at all in their district, and its
ravages almost forgotten, though at ono time it threat
ened to destroy all their pear orchards, as it did those of
districts further north. Prompt and continuous action
conquered the scourge.
Frequently ono hoars that hogs and alfalfa tiro much
more profitable than fruit raising, and that they are com
paratively free from the incessant war with destroying
pests. Yet tho alfalfa field is as subject to damaging
insects and organisms as orchards, and a host of parasites
prey upon tho hog. Hogs face a worse scourge than blight
n bacterial disease much similar in origin attacks the
animal as tho blight organism docs the tree hog cholera.
Hog cholera in 1DUJ cost Iowa fanners more than
$no.000,000. according to statistics on the epidemic re
cently gathered bv the agricultural extension department
of Iowa State college. Director W. .J. Kennedy estimates
that the loss aggregated not loss than $.W,720.000. "That
is conservative," ho says, "and is two and a half times
as great as in 1JM2." Hog cholera was more or less preva
lent in every county in the state last year, although some
suffered loss. than o per cent.
Iowa is but ono state, and the toll from cholera in all is
heavy. Yet it can be successfully resisted, just as blight
can be. in fact it is an easier problem to prevent hog
cholera than it is blight. The state and government both
aid the breeder with hog anti-toxin, and the largo loss is
due to carelessness, shiftlossnoss and inefficiency of the
hog raiser even more than blight is due to the same quali
ties in tho fruit raisers.
As a result of the hog raisers incapacity to protect
himself, state and county hog inspection is being enforced,
just as fruit inspection is in this district, and the farmer
forced to protect himself and his neighbors just as the or
chardist is here.
All together, the chances of the orchardist are just as
bright or brighter than those of the farmer, but the one
most apt to succeed in tho long run is tho on who com
bines both occupations and does not place all eggs in one
