"Gentlemen: Since I lmvc lot two
consecutive croiw of fruit by frot, I
lmvc been attempting to devise somo
prncticul method of orchnnl hentinp
ii ud hnvo n plan which, nlthoiigh
Mmiewlmt cinbrjotic, I desire to sub
mil to you.
"The scientific nrchnrdi-t hnvc
come to the conclusion that Miiudj
imr with crude oil will ultimately de
stroy the orchards because the soot
stops up the ores of the leaves, pre
venting the tree from securing the
proer nutriment from the air. Some
of them nlso mnintnin thai this henvy
Mnoke prevents the polleniration of
the fruit, diminishing or destroyng
thn crop, nt least for the current
year. However thi may be, it is uni
versally rccogniied that the erode oil
smudge nt least a great miNnnec,
not only to the employee and resi-
denlfl of the ondianl district, but to
the community generally, including
the cities, for the smoke blackens and
diteolorB everything out of doom and
within.
"The plan I have is pimply the con
struction of n Rinnll lamp like stove,
somewhat similar to the oil stove
sometime used for healing a single
room. The construction contemplates
a bow holding a gallon or mora with
a burner and xheet iron chimney
within nn larger sheet iron drum. This
should have Becured some way to the
top n tentacle like hanger which would
revolve, making it adjustable to hang
upon the limb somewhere near the
center of the tree. The -wrchardists
could by this means light the lamps
of an evening, whenever the tempcr
ntHre indicated danger of frost, hang
the heaters in the trees, and retire
with the full confidence that their
crop would be secure from danger by
frost.
"It would b necessary, I presume
to bum the ordinary kerosene unles
sonio burner has been or can be dc-
vNed for burning the crude oil with
out smoke. Not being much of a me
chanic I am not advised whether a
hunter for crude oil is practical, but
Ltbcliuve that even to burn ken!cne
would incur les expense than the
ordinary smudge t system. I have
talked with two or three mechanics
here, but so far have not found uny
one who seems to be able to perfect
the plan suggested and I feel con
vinced Hint you, with abundant re
sources and with most skilled me
chanics at your command, can per
fect this plun, thereby revolutionize
the present system of orchard heat
ing. "The details herein mny be too mea
ger to convey the idea of the pro
posed heater, but if you think the
mutter feasible, after referring the
same to one of your mechanics if nec
essary I will explain it more in detail.
"I should be glad, to hear from you
at any rate, far I would not only like
to save my own crop of fruit, but
would like to do the whole country
a benefit by assisting in the con
struction of a practical method of
healing orchards. Yours very truly,
"W. K. Phipps."
(Stuudurd Oil Compuny)
"San Francisco, July 2. 1014.
"Mr. V. K. I'hlpps, Medford, Oregon.
"Dear Sir: Hefcrriug to your let
ter of June 20th relative to orchard
heating. Wc have carefully noted
what you have to say regarding the
use of crude oil in orchard heaters
with the resultant soot and smoke.
Also your suggestion us to the use
of n small lamp like stove for the
sumo purpose.
"Wo have given tho orchard heating
tpicKtiou considerable attention al
though it is not the intention of this
company to market an orehard heater,
ami do not believe that the scheme
of a heater liiirniii" keroKcno oil
you hnva outlined anticipating the
use of a heater burning refined oils
yrjll bo satisfactory or economical.
"Jliy tnamuueturers of orchard
heaters' today are recognizing the no
cesHity of putting out u heater that
will bum jieuvy oils without giving
off soot or sinokiJ and so far there
lire several healers that have been
perfected to this point.
''Wo understand thut tho Star Or
clmrd Heater Co., 1705 Villi street,
Oakland Calif., is prcpiucd to fur
nish a healer that will hum tint heav
ier oils and which will not give off
sout MHd smoke.

WASHINGTON, D. C. July T.
Kilward It. Thompson, Connor I'nltotl
States consul at Mcrlda, Yucatan. In
a communication to the National Geo
graphic foclety, nt Washington. D. C,
describing Chlchen It in, tho homo of
a forRottcn race, on the Peninsula of
Yucatan, declares that the American
people should nwaken to the fact that
they have right at homo architecture
essentially American and ruined
structures every whit as Intere.MliK
and massive ami possibly as old as
those of other land, who boast that
Americans must come to them.
"Within these mysterious Ameri
can ruins arc groat books, with pages
ot Meno, writ in characters that no
man may yet read," ho declares.
"Arc the mysteries they hold, the
wonderful facts that certainly lie
sealed and mute within them, hidden
from us, less Interesting to Ameri
cans than arc the tales of Egyptian
dynasties, the rites of Druids, ltomnn
campings, or Saxon raldlngs? I think
not."
World's FIrt TcnnU Court
Mr. Thompson describe what was
protiahly tho first tennis or basket
ball court on this hemisphere and
possibly in tho world. "The mine!
group of Chlchen Itta covers n spare
of fully throo square miles," he says.
"Over all this wide terltory are scat
tered carved and squared stones, In
countless thousands, fallen by the
hundreds, while the formless re
mains ami outlined walls of Iiuro
structures falen Into ruin are recti on
every side. Seven massive structures
of carved stono and adamantine mor
tar still tower erect, and almost in
habitable. Their fascades sustain
claim that Chlchen Itza Is one of the
world's greatest monuments ot anti
quity.
"Several hundred feet to tho west
of the Castle Temple rest two great
parallel moles ot solid masonry, each
275 feet long, 34 feet wide and 25
feet high. Between these moles la
the Ceremonial Court. This level co
ntented space was probably the thea
ter for the performance of certain
rites and games of a ceremonial
character. This belief Is borne out
by the fact that a distance of six feet
from the level upper surface of thn
mole two great rings of stone were
fixed into the perpendicular wall
surface, directly opposite each other.'
KfttJmatc of City's Arc
Mr. Thompson declares estimates
as to the age of the city vary from
less than 2000 years to moro than
11,000 years. An idea of the intri
cacies of the language of the people
of the city Is given by the following
quotation from a document found
there. "I.a I u tzolan katun lukcl tt
cab ti yotoch Nonoual," which Is
translated to mean, "This Is a series
ot epochs that elapsed from the tlmo
ot their departure from the bouse of
Nonoual In the land ot Tulapan."

Fish Lake, down through Medford
and over into the Apptcgnto valley,
up Williams creek and through n
short tunnel at the head of u brunch
of William creek and down Sucker
creek through the lllinoi valley, on
to the coat nnd San rrnneiseo.
All this mentis much to Medford,
not only for competing railroad
freight and passenger business, but
touchinir close to Crater lake on one
side nnd tin Grnhmk cave on the
other, making Medford the city to
both. Of cour-i uch a road will
help Knelt Point, and a town some
where near the mouth of Sucker
creek yet to be built that will serve
the local fanning nnd minim; com
munities of that famous lllinoi val
ley, but such town will bo tributary
to the central city Medford.
All thi leave Medford the city
of ncecss to Crater lake on one side
and the cave on the other accessible
both by the present Southern Pacific
and the new road. It will not only
make Medford the center of these
scenic attraction, hut will bring the
lllinoi valley "with its rich farming

tary to Medford. All thi deend on
