At Sarcoxie, Mo., February 23d, was
held a ronvenllon of berry growers
gathered from South Missouri and
Northern Arkansas. Representative
commission men from, different parts
the country were also present. From
a leugthy report of the meeting in the
RouthWf sf, an agricultural paper pub
lished tit Springfield, we learn that the
convention "vas called to take action
in regard to joining the American
Fruit Grower' Union. Willis Brown
was present and explained the objects
and worklugH of the union. There was
considerable discussion. A cominis
oion man from Minneapolis, being
called for, addressed the convention
nnd in his remarks paid his respects to
the manager of the A.' F. O. U. in
terms that might not be considered
complimentary. Mr. Brown gained
Ids point, however, the convention by
u tie vote, which was decided by the
chairman, declaring in favor of the
union The delegates from the Sar
cnxle association of berry growers there
upon withdrew from the convention.
Mr. 8. W. Gilbert of Thayer read a
lengthy paper. He favored the union
nnd urged the necessity of having a
man to act as distributor, "to be paid a
good salary, with headquarters at Kan
fas City, and remain there -the whole
year round." The following extract
from Mr. Gilbert's paper shows that

berries in that section is not always
catisfnctory when the ''returns come
in:" '
Almost any man can, after attending a few
meetings of the state horticultural society, or
reading a few reports, grow a good crop of
strawberries, but how many are there here to
day that have so manipulated their crops
within tho past two years that they hove
made a reasonably good profit on them?
Many care, I dare say, the past season did not
pay cost of picking and box material. It is so
delightful to plant 6, 10, 20, 50, or even 100
acres of strawberries, spend your money lav
ishly upon the growing beauties, watch, care
and plan for them for u whole year, and then,
after the crop U all harvested, find tho profit
on 25 acres Is not enough to pay one's ex
penses to the horticultural meeting. Such an
experience is very enthusing to the ordinary
grower! This man who did not make enough
money olf his 25 acres to pay his expenses to
the state meeting, only a few years ago Just
before Soutji Missouri and North Arkansas
grew so many berries had no I rouble to net
over J500 per acre on this same kind ot fruit.
Home attribute this great difference to the
fact that we have had a panic, and that peo
ple do not have the money to buy the fruit
that they once had. Yes, this may be true
and has its influence, but that Is only a side
Issue as compared to the fact tha; the growers
have no systematized method of distribution;
almost every commission firm in the country
Wants every grower to ship to them, and In
all probability two very reliable houses lo
cated side by side in the same city do not
know what each other will have on the mor
row for ale. Today, for instance, they have
a good strong market, berries worth 83 to $3.50
per case, market firm. - This Information is
wired broadcast over the country by both
houses, possibly with the additional advice
that they can handle two cars daily. How
briirht evervthinrr is down at Thaver when J.
our manager, or secretary, as the case may be,
guts that message. He steps around Just as
tho'.igh he knew a thing or two, posts alt the
growers before he starts the car what a fine
market they have; but oh, myl when the re
turns come In, his heart almost stops beating
tut he reads his telegram next morning: "Mar
ket busted; 17 cars in today. Don't ship until
we wire." Ho awaits account stiles, and when
he gets them he figures that his 084 cases of
istraw berries net his friends 48 cents per
crate. His picking and crate charges were
about 60 cents per crate, so the growers had
tho pleasure of paying the entire expense of
producing those US4 crates and a little more In
order in be able to ship berries into that fine
According to the ilgures furnished
the state department at Washington
by Consul-Geneaal Ellis Mills, at Hon
olulu, the total population of Hawaii,
as shown by the census just completed,
is 100,020. ' Of these, Hawaiians head
the list with a total of 31,019, Japnnese
come next with 24,407, Chinese follow
with 21,010, Portuguese with 15,190,
those part Hawaiian with 8,485, Amer
icans with 3,086, British witn 2,250,
and Germans with 1,432. The remain
der is divided between half a dozen
nationalities. In the event of annex
ation of Hawaii to the United States
the male portion of this undesirable
population would become citizens with
the right to vote. Thanks to Secre
tary Gresham's policy, we we're saved
this heterogeneous addition to our pop
ulation under Cleveland, and President
McKinley's declaration against annex
ing more 'territory may keep out the
heathen of the Sandwich Islands for
another four years.
The University Monthly, a magazine
devoted to the interests of the students
and friends of the state university, lias
been received. It is a neat publication,
edited and published by the students,
and a credit to the educational work of
the state. .
The experience of a few of our straw
lny growers, published in this issue,
will lie valuable to new beginners. We
are inclined to favor Mr. Chandler's
suggestion, to plant 30 inches apart
each way, to allow cross cultivation by
horse. The work of hoeing out weeds
in the rows is quite an item in the ex
pense account. We should aim to
grow larger and better fruit, and giv
ing the plants room and allowing tile
siiu jo strike a 1 round would tend to
larger growth unit, earlier berrits.
Methods of Strawberry Growing.
Last fall the Glacier invited the
strawberry growers of Hood River to
give their experience and c inclusions
through the columns of the paper as to
the best methods of cultivating their
crops. Only a few have responded so
far, and their contributions are given
below. We hope they will be fol
lowed by others: v
Mr. H. C. Bateham says: "The strawberry Is
one of the best crops to grow on new land, as
the sod can be turned under and there left to
rot and fertilize the plants without again be
ing disturbed until the patch is plowed up
four years later. Early fall or early spring
plantings do well, but late fall plantings are
apt to give poor results, A plant set In No
vember will not do as well nor yield as much
as If set even as late as the following April.
I am confident that twice as much water is
often used In irrigation as there is any need
of. If irrigated twice a week during June
and followed each time with light cultivation,
stra berries will need no more water until
nature gives It to them In September. I know
of several spring-set plantations last year
which had not a drop of irrigation during the
summer and they did well. The method of
planting apple trees among the strawberry
plants, or rather planting strawberries be
tween the rows of apple trees, seems to be
growing In favor and has several advantages.
Not only does the clean cultivation and Irri
gation of the strawberry plants give the trees
a good start, bat the ground is benefited by
the shade and fertilized by the water instead
of being left bare to bake lu the sun, as it is
apt to do when no crop is raised between the
trees. By this method the cultivation of the
orchard, as an orchard. Is practically done
without expense until the trees begin to bear!"
N. C. Evans has tried 20 or more varieties of
strawberries, but only one of tnera even ap
proached the Clark Seedling, and that one
(Tippecanoe) will need further trial to prove
of equal value. Mr. Evans' experiments have
led him to adopt for his soil and location the
following plan: Set the plants In rows 30
inches apart by 10 inches or eight Inches in
the row. A location sheltered from wind is
very desirable, for winds whip the plants and
retard ripening. The planting of double
rows, with an lrriga Ion furrow between, in
clines the plants to a one-sided growth, and
the inside of the double row does not ripen so
well. Strawberries need irrigation whenever
the ground becomes dry. The application or
withholding of water causes no perceptible
difference in the time of ripening. After the
crop is off, irrigate sparingly. Allowing run
ners to set is a detriment to the following
crop. A plantation can produce three profit
able crops and no more. As a general rule,
plants from an old patch are not good, for the
runners are usually small and weak and the
sets lack vigor.
Frank Chandler says that almost any
ground in the valley that is clean is good lor
strawberries,' but the warmest is the most
valuable. Most of his patch is planted in
rows 8(1 inches apart and 8 inches in the row,
although he believes that a good plan is to set
in hills 30 inches apart each way, so as to per
mit or cross cultivation with horse. August
or early fall is the best time to plant. He Ir
rigates by furrow next to row and aims to
keep the ground moist all of the season so as
to secure as large a growth of crowns in the
fall as possible, so that the plants will have
nothing to do in the spring but go to blossom
in i early." He never observed that irrigation
retarded ripening. As soon as possible after
crop is off the tops should be cut off, Bor
deaux spray mixture will cure rust.
Mr. Gore is managing the LaFrance fruit
ranch. He believes in planting in the spring,
if it can be done early, otherwise prefers fall
setting. He has been planting rows 30 inches
apart and 18 inches In the row, but In future
will set them 24 Inches apart each way, which
will give about the same number per acre, say
11,000, and with the added advantage of being
able to cross cultivate. He prepures for Irrl
gation by placing an 18 inch block in rear of
cultivator, which makes a wide, shallow fur
row. C. D. Moore of White Salmon is located on
sandy soil, sloping to the south. His plants
are set in rows only 20 Inches apart und 12
inches in the row, but the tops do not appear
to crowd each other unduly. He cultivates
With a horse cultivator. Best time for setting
Is August or early In the spring. He com
mences to irrigate when he commences to
pick berries, and continues till the entire crop
is off. One more thorough wetting in summer
ought to carry them through to theall rains.
Immediately after picking is over he com
mences to cut olf the old tops, using a sharp
hoe for the purpose, and keeps the runners
cut off by the use of a circular steel cutter, 7
Inches in diameter. Mr. Moore uses his im
proved strawberry planter to set his plants.
This rig consists of long wooden tweezers,
with which the left hand handles the plant,
while with a long-handled trowel the rigbt
hand and arm opens the ground and covers
the roots. This is a rapid method und has
proved very successful. Mr. 'Moore is very
enthusiastic in praise of his style of irrigating,
which is by means of revolving lawn sprink
lers attached to hose. It requires much less
labor and attention and saves qn the average
one-half of the water. The effect on tho rip
ening berries is entirely satisfactory, making
them fresh and firm, so that they ship In the
best possible manuer. The effect of an hour's
sprinkling is a totally different matter from
a rain storm, for .the former is accompanied
with clear, dry air and sunshine, while the
latter, with its continuous cloudiness and
muggy atmosphere, is sure to soften and
damage ripe fruit.
Mr. Bradford and Mr, Zeigler, close neigh
bors of Mr. Moore, have udopted the same
method of irrigation with most satisfactory
A. V. Bateham believes in taking great
pains to thoroughly prepare the ground be
fore setting out strawberries, as the cost of
good work then 1b easily offset by the greater
ease of after cultivation. Most of his patch is
set In rows 18 inches apart and 12. Inches apart
in the rows, or 80,000 to the acre. Cultivation
is necessarily done by band. On a more ex
tensive scale he would omit every third row,
have an Irrigation furrow in the narrow row.
and cultivate the wide row with horse. This
arrangement is very advantageous in the
picking season, as the pickers occupy the
wide row and are not interfered with by the
water furrow which Is in the narrow row.
Mr. Bateham uses lawn sprinklers for Irriga
tion wherever he can secure sufficient head of
water, and irrigates thoroughly during berry.
season. Spring is his favorite time for plant
ing, and he has adopted the "Moore method"
for doing .he work. Tops should be cut off in
July or August, with a hoe, and at the same
time thoroughly clean out .weeds, etc. Irri
gate once or twice more before fall rains, but
do not encourage a rank growth of top. Keep
the patch thoroughly cultivated and cut off
runners with a Urcular cutter or a sharp hoe.

Home from their Journey.
Corvallis Times.
Professors Cordley, Hedrick .and
Pemot and Presedent Miller of the O.
A. C. returned home the first of the
Week from institute work at Hood
River and The Dalles. At each point
they were greeted by interested audi
ences, enthusiastic in the search for
information relative to fruit culture,
and with lectures illustrated with lan
tern views and magnified represents
tions of fruit, pests thrown on canvas
by the projecting microscope; their
visit according to the newsDarters mil)
lished in the locality were highly ap
preciated and most pron table.
Hood River is destined to become the
great strawberry region of Oregon, no
other known locality in the state being
able to complete with it in quality,
productiveness, and earltness or truit.
Added to these, it has a well established
good name in our western markets. It
is estimated that 25,000 crates of Clark's
seedling strawberry will be shipped
from the valley this season. Two pests
of the strawberry, the leaf spot and the
root borer, have made their appearance,
but the strawtierry men seem alive to
the necessity of vigilanco and will
probably keep the pests well in sub-
The apple industry at Hood River is
on a tirm basis although the growers
feel that in the future they must re
strict themselves ton high class of fruit
in order to successfully compete with
regions that produce a low grade as
cheap or cheaper. High color, good
flavor, and long keeping qualities,
characterize tne L'utt rrown here, and
that these attributes are appreciated in
the markets is shown by the fact that
Hood River Newtown pippins sell
for $2.50 per box this year, an even dol
lar more per box than the same variety
brings as grown in less favored parts of
the state.
Speaking of The Dalles, it is not
generally known but is nevertheless
true that some of the best prune and
apple, orchards grown in Oregon are
tound in this locality, ihe trees are
especially thrifty and are hut little
troubled with pests if, we. except San
Jose scale and codling moth, both of
which are being most vigorously com
batted. A good many peaches are
grown at The Dulles and as a rule, pay
well. The soil and climate seem ideal
for cherries, gummosis being unknown;
nut as yet tew cherries are-grown
though undoubtedly the openings for
such orchards are good. The Dalles
bids fair to become the great market
gardening town of the state. Early
vegetables, tomatoes, . cucumbers,
melons, and sweet corn, grow luxur
iantly and a large trade tor these pro
ducts has already been worKed up.
Why Not?
Editor Glacier: We hear that the
floating political excrement composing
tlie Portland republican clique is anx
ious to have an extra session of the
legislature called to pay off Jo Simon,
Bourne and the fellows who hid out
longer than Noah's beasts were hidden
in the ark. Why not lift most of this
burden from the taxpayers by having
the governor convene the insane asy
lum patients in the state house, and
then bar the doors against Bourne and
Jo Simon's organ in Portland? We
certainly would have as good a chance
for "remedial" legislation, besides Cor
bett would no doubt tie chosen senator
as the universal choice of about one
tenth of all t lie Mitchell haters in Ore
gon or abnut one-tiftieth of the pop
ular vote or the state. w. Li. A.
Belmont, April 1 .Editor Glacier:
Your statement concerning the Bel
mont boys being defeated in a game of
base ball on last Sunday a week ago, is
incorrect. There were none of the Bet
mont club in this contest. We do not
ask this correction because of the defeat
of the parties, whoever they were, who
played, but for the reason that we as a
club will not play on Sunday.

a huge petition is being signed, by the
taxpayers, to strengthen the guards at

inmates will break loose and be re

Reception and Farewell Party.
A reception and farewell party was
given on Wednesday evening at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. M. B. Potter
to Miss Edith Potter and Mr. F. H.

just returned from Heopner, where she
has been attending school. Mr. Iseri

where he expects to teach school. The
young people were pleasantly enter

An Agreeable Surprise.
Belmont lodge, I. O. G. T., was
agreeably surprised during their regular
session on Monday night at receiving
an invitation from Mr. and Mrs. Cun
ning to visit them after adjournment.
The lodge promptly accepted, hastily
closed and proceeded to the residence,
where the literary exercises were con
tinued in public, consisting of songs
and reading the lodge papers, punc
tuated witli the pleasing aroma of
coffee, and soon an elaborate and tooth
some lunch was spread and partaken of
with great relish by these temperate
esthetics. It was voted an enjoyable
time and the thanks of the loriire ten
dered for the pleasant entertainment.
Belmont lodge has been enjoying quite
a boom since moving to new quarters,
New members received at nearly all
meetings, and a good interest main
tained. The lodge will miss for a short
time two of our most earnest and
oftiicient workers Howard Isenberg
and Edith Liudsey, who leave us to
teach the "young idea" in other local
ities. The best wishes of the lodge go
with them.
A Heroic Deed.
Last Monday afternoon Mrs. Buchler
and Mrs. Gosser were out west of the
city gathering flowers and were accom
panied by a little girl about six yea re of
age by the name of Belat. Returning
they were crossing Mill creek on the
foot bridge above Ninth street when
the little girl fell into the water and
was carried down the swift stream
some distance. The ladies, almost
frantic with fright, started to her res
cue, but came to a barbwire fence
which they could neither get over or go
around. They could see- the child
floating down the mad current, but
were unable to render assistance.
Fortunately they saw Jim Busha, an
Indian lad who is a cripple and goes
on crutches, and called to bin to save
the drowning girl. Brave little Jim
hobbled to the stream, waded into the
rushing waters and rescued the child.
Little Jim takes no credit to himself,
considering his act only one which hu
manity demanded that he should per
form, but it would be a handsome re
ward for true bravery if the kind peo
ple of The Dalles would give him some
substantial recognition for his act.
Substitute tor Paris Green.
Prof. R. C. Kedzie, of the Michigan
Agricultural College, has discovered a
spraying compound which he believes
to be more effective and less costly
than Paris irieen, and which does not
burn the foliage of the trees. The fol
lowing are his directions for making it:
Boil two pounds of white arsenic and
four pounds sal soda for 15 minutes in
two gallons of water. Put in a jug
and label "poison" and lock it up.
When you wish to spray slack two
pounds of lime and stir into 40 gallons
of water, adding a pint of the mixture
from t,ue jug.
The mixture in the jug will cost 45
cents, and this is enough for 800 gal
lons or 20 barrels of spray. These 20
barrels will require 40 pounds of lime
which will cost 20 cents more, making
the total cost 65 cents for 20 barrels
Si cents ir barrel.
Its advantages over Paris green are
as follows: It is cheaper and the ingre
dients can be found in any village drug
store; it is easily prepared and easily
kept ready; it will keep for any length
of time; it is uniform in strength;' it
does not injure the leaves of trees or
plants; it colors the leaves white,
showing how evenly it is distributed.
