The heavily charged, ainooty smoke porinenle every
nook and crook of building of Medford, soiling whatever
it tom-heis. It damage stoekH of incrchandme and it ne
cessitate a thorough house-cleaning to eliminate its stains
from farm and city residences.
TliQre is no desire to interfere with the orchard indus
try, but there are many ways open to the fruit grower to
heat bin orchard without damaging the community.
Wood or local coal heat the orchard without injuring the
trees or buildings, and have the additional advantage of
leaving the money m the community instead ol sending it
out. There are manv who are convinced of their super
iority as orchard heaters.
It does not stand to reason that a heavy layer of oily
soot improves the tree itself. .Repeated year after year,
it must certainly check the natural processes of the trees'
breathing, and interfere with development and growth.
We know that in the smoky cities of the east, like Pitts
burg and Cincinnati, that soot kills and stunts the vigorous
growing varieties of shade trees, and any such artificial
blight cannot benefit a fruit tree.
.For five years the people of tho Itoguo "River valley
have suffered from the smudge nuisance without com
plaint, except from orchardists convinced -that their
groves were damaged from thier neighbors' operations.
The smudgcrs themselves have blindly followed the fad in
their heroic efforts to preserve their crop and (he com
munity has sympathized with their efforts.
Hut oil smudging has not proven such a success as to
warrant its continuance. There are plenty of other ways
to heat the orchard which damage neither tree nor com
munity. They should be utilized before the nuisance be
comes so great as to invoke drastic action for its cessation.

The head and front of the conspiracy are the "cotton

would double or treble its value. Allied with them are the

Americans at home placing self-interest against the na
It is well for the nation to present a united front in
its foreign relations. The nation is for peace, but only for
peace that carries with it national honor and it is the
part of patriotism to stand with the president in this inter
