HI. Joseph, AIo., Jiiii t Grower of Ajiril 15. In rt it reml.s
Talk about growing beltr fruit bah! The more you grow lh morr
you 1M, aa none pay for lh roat of production anil transportation. W kn
one aoea hla lifetime aavlnga mo to amaah, one can't hare a kindly feeltmc
for people who make their living by atatementa rontrary to the real farm
"I put $7,000 In land and Improvement! close to Oranta 1'aaa In 19"!)

Into the place. Now I ran't get 30c for each dollar that I have put In I
planted, among other tree. 2o Hlng and Lambert cherrlea. They all died
from gummoali. Nothing can atop It.
There are many in every fruit belt that tell the same
story, with the irony and bitterness of failure. There
always will be, for the idyllic life of the orehurdist appeals
to the inexperienced, to the ill-equippud, to the dreamer
and impractical, to the city-worn and to the retired. The
perfumed bloom, the fragrance of the ripening fruit, the
sunshine and charm of out-of-door life in a region where
every prospect pleases, lures the unfit and the misfit along
with the fit.
They say in the orange belt of California that it takes
three generations of owners to brrng- an orchard into prof
itable bearing. The first plants it and sells before it
reaches the bearing age, usually at an inflated, exorbitant
price to the second, who exchanges his money for experi
ence and becomes bankrupt or quits in disgust and the
third, practical enough to make it profitable.
An individual who puts his entire capital into any
business about which lie knows nothing, and especially
into a business that he knows cannot return profits for
seven yeaix, must expect to become "broke." An individ
ual who speculates in purchasing frm't lands on margins
has no more just complaint about losing out than he would
dotective with the uinieratttiidiiiK'timt' have with the same sort of speculation in a bucket shop.
after he had hihiIh hla atatementa to
federal officer or a grand Jury ho
is alst) destined for failure for of all occupations, none
requires more careful, intelligent supervision and actual
hard work than fruit growing- with its endless battle with
pests and nature.
Periodically, following the fabulous profits of favor
able years, the fruit-growing craze sweeps over the coun
try, just as the stock craze and the milling craze and the
real estate crazes do. The lessons of the past are always
forgotten in the excitement of the moment, and everyone
who can buys in haste to repent at leasure. Carried away
by a contagious enthusiasm ami the unscrupulous lies of
brokers, the widow invests here mite along with the youth
from college and t lie ripened business man, in inflated
securities. And in the tragedy of the reaction, in which
the inflation is squeezed out, necessary experience ac
quire!, t lie orchards reach bearing age and the industry
placed upon a business basis, there are hard times and the
faint-hearted lose their courage.
The past few years have been severe on the local or
ehardists, but valuable lessons have been learned. Might
and oilier pests have been successfully fought, frost dam
age minimized and the necessity of irrigation to overcome
drouth realized, and the marketing problems being solved
through co-operation. And even with the handicap of un
favorable seasons and a foreign market deinoralizt'tl by
war, some of the orchardists have made good profits.
Kvery year sees the fruit business upon a better business
basis and it is still the one best M in the Uogue K'iver
valley. As the I'Yuit-G rower remarks:
Now la a good (line to atlek tight to our own orchard, and to glvo

.Justice Hughes' name on tlu- Oregon ballot has been
crowned with kiuci'sk and I he name of the favorite candi
date til the stand -patters will adorn the ballot against his
expressed wishes by order of the supreme court. .It is
now in order to institute mandamus proceedings to eoniHl
Mr. Hughes to accent the republican nomination, which he
has stated that he does not want.
It is indeed a curious state of affairs when a great
political party has to resort to the courts to dm ft a candi
date for the presidency of the Tinted States against his
will. It shows what dire straits the partv managers are
dihen to in their frantic effort to pick a winner.
The sentiment for Hughes is based solely upon the
idea that he will prove a vote-getter. No attention is paid
as to what may be his principles or his attitude upon pub
lic quest ion ami policies in this most critical aud crucial
tiiiM in tin' nation's history. Whether Mr. Hughes favors
commercial economic ami industrial reforms that affect
the life of the people, whether he fa vol's preparedness and
militarism, whether he is for war or for peace, what is his
attitude upon a hundred other issues U not known. Nor
does it make any difference to the priiuipleless partisans
advocating his candidacy what he helieu-s so long as he is
thought a vote getter.
