Turpentine From Pine Stumps.
Near Hinckley, Minn., a factory was
recently established (or the extraction
of turpentine from pine stumps.
Enough la not yet known of the indus
try to make any definite statement con
cerning the profitableness of utilizing
the pine stumps in the cut-over lands of
Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan.
However, the experiments to date
indicate that thene stumps, instead of
being a drawback to the land, are a
positive anset, and that turpentine can
be extracted in paying quantities. The
future of the industry is briefly described
by Mr. K. U. Church, who is lurgely
interested in the plant at Hinckley, and
concerning which lie says:
"I was at first inclined to be skeptical
of the nrotiosition. but a recent trio and
full investigation convinces me that the
turpentine factory is to he the greatest
possible boom to the cut-over sections
ol tne nonliweei. ine proposition
makes the old pine stump problem sim
ple, for the labor of extracting these to
prepare thri' land for agricultural pur
poses is more than paid for by the
turpentine secured from them. In other
words, the removing of the stumps is
a profitable undertaking.
"The plant now established is 11
miles east of Hinckley, and has been in
operation three months. In this sec
tion the supply of turpentine comes
from the trees being killed by the pro
cess. ISecause of this there is a percept
ible shortage. The new process is
simply to boil the turpentine out of the
old stumps and roots. The timber has
been cut in the winter while the sap
was In the lower parts of the tree and
in the roots. Tho apparatus for treat
ing the stump consists of a boiler en
cased in brick to hold in the heat. Into
this is placed an iron basket filled with
stumps and roots. This is covered tight
and the fire is started under the boiler.
"A copiier pipe leads from the boiler
to the still or worm, which condenses
the turpentine, After the turpentine
the tar is collected, and finally, when
the process is complete, the clia-cal is
lifted out and become a source uf profit.
Three men can run four big boilers,
each of which contains five cords of
stumps. It requires five days to com
plete the process.
"It will be seen that 20 cordH of wood
are worked up in five days. From this
mass 400 gallons of turpentine, 000 gal
lons of tar and (MX) bushels of charcoal
are secured. The turpentine is worth
(15 cents per gallon, the tar 10 to 12 cents
and the charcoal 10 to 12 cents per
bushel. Thus it will be seen that about
:IH0 worth of stuff is secured from five
days' work, llesides tiie labor of the
three men, the stumps would cost f.'i
per ton, and eight to ten cords of wood
rnbbirih, costing $1.50 per ton, is re
quired for the fuel.
"There seems to bo an unlimited
demand for tho products from stump
distillation. The turpentine is much
stronger than that usually obtained,
and tho charcoal is of much better
quality. About the only risk is in regu
lating the heat. Once in a while a kiln
full is lost by being heated to the burn
ing point. This process of securing tur
pentine has been used in Russia, Nor
way and Sweden for a number of years,
and the only surprising thing about it
is that Americans have not adnptul it
soonur." Orange Jndd Farmer.
The War Over Apples.
A grave dispute is raging among pp
ple growers as to the relative merits and
superiority of the lien lhivis and Jona
than varities, and King lien Davis is
likely to be deposed, lie baa reigned to
long us the king of the apple tribe it
really seems like sacrilege toadmit there
could lie any bettor but Itrother lonathan
is playing the part of the pretender
and rallying many forces to his standard.
It is enough to bring a blushnf sirnrne to
the cheek of Hen DbvIs, this Servian
method of dealing with royalty. But
Hen has just secured a new champion,
and one whospeaks with authority, none
other than Dr. J. 0. Whitton, dean of
the Misouri Horticultural college and
president of the State Fruit tirowers'
association, wIiobiivs: "I am for Hen
Davis first, lut-t and all the time, ami am
prepared to back up my opinions with
facts and figures. 1 am receiving daily
statistics and reports from apple dealers
and fruit grower all over the state. The
Hen Davis is the best apple for a good
many reasons. In tho first place, it is
the beNt shipper and reaches foreign
countries in better condition than any
other apple. 1 know of a recent test
that clearly proved the superiorty of the
Hen Davis. It was made with a large
shipment of American apples of many
varities to (iennany. When the barrels
containing todt apples wereopened in the
market at Hamburg it was found that
the Hen Davis had erossod the water in
much better condition than the other
varities. The Hen Davis is a great
favorite in Germany. Trade reports say
that Germany is Importing more of them
than any other variety, and is at present
paying better prices than ever More.
Knglaud rather prefers the Albemarle
Pippin and buys them at higher prices
than any other American apple, though
the demand is rather limited. The next
in popularity in Kiiglaiid lathe Hen Davis,
following winch came the Greening and
the Hal J in. American apples are he
coming more in demand in Europe eueh
year, even in Germany, France, Kussia
and Austria, which produce apples of
their own. Germauv is the hunt hnvnr
and demands the Hen Davis in preference
to all other varieties."
Go it, Hen Davis, go it Brother Jon
athan. Personally, we favor settling the
dispute by submitting a barrel of each
to every newspaper editor, bis decision to
be beyond appeal. Iowa State Register.
Bacterial Disease of the Pear and Apple.
L. V. Henderson, Idaho Experiment
Station Spring la now upon us the
time when the careful horticulturist
must tie repuriug to combat those
many ills Incident to fruit culture,
whether of an insect or of a mngoiiH
nature. Of all these probably the fire
blight la the worst and most to be
1 he name "fire blight" Is the proper
one to use; u Hiiouhl not lie called
'year blight" for two reasons. In the
una place it la liable to lie confused
w th imj pear-leaf blight, a disease
which attacks the leaf of the pear, mid
ineiiieiiiuiiy injur, ,,H frltit. In the
next place this disease it not limited to
me pear; u is lust, becoming loo com
mon on the apple as well, In our state.
iay, hi many at ites It attacks all of

apple, quince, crah.and hawthorn.
Ihree years ago, this dixease was un
known to the writer In the southern
part of the state; today, there is hardly
nil orchard in certuin districts which
doe not show some blight, and In
many It Is very serious, in Northern
Idaho it has been hi our pear orchards
for over 10 years, hut luckily It has
hardly ever attacked the apple. From
the devastation this disease is causing
in the Southern Idaho the northern
portions of the state will lie long ex
empt. Though this trouble has la-en known
at working havoc In orchards for a
century or more, it It only in com
paratively recent time that its true
nature has been well understood. For
a long period of years the discussions of
thit trouble were of eueh a theoretic
nature that many horticultural aoci
etiet forbade its being brought up In
their meetings, unless some one bad
something of absolute knowledge to
ofler about It. Various cause were
imcrilied for ita iiresence. tm-li i ''sour
an." " atmospheric eond f.oiirv" ''soil
conditions," and . "effect f various
fungi." In 1897, liowevc, Professor
Hurrill of Illinois discovered the true
cause and announced bis discovery to
Uim wr d. Th Is was found to be bacter
fl disease, due to the presence of
myriads of little germs in the inner
bu'rk and eambrium. The gern was
called bv Prolessor Burrill Microccua
anvlovorus from the eagerness with
winch it seizes upon and devours the
starch in these tissues. From the sub'
sequent studies of Arthur at the Gene
vu Station In New Yolk, mid of Waite
In the V. 8. Department of agriculture
we know how this germ or bacterium
lives, produces itself and ia carried
from tree to tree.
Luckily the disease Is a very con
sidelong one, which renders Its pres
ence In an orchard the more inexcus
able when well known. It affects
twigs, leaves, young fruit, and even
the branches or trunks. From the ex
rlinents of Walte, it baa been found
that it cannot attack (he plant through
Hie uninjured bark or can, how-
ever,gain enlrunee through any injured
place on trunk, limb, or even lear. its
more common ihMiim or entrance are
natural ones. These are the young
growing tips of the branch, the stigma
of the nower, or the glands which se
crete nectar. Therefore, the "flower
blight," the "twhr-blight" and the
"branch or trunk blight" are alt forms
of this disease.
In the first, the young twig, espe
cially If It be growing rapidly, turns
b'acii in both leafund stem, and when
ever the leaves tire blighted I hey
remain black and dead through the en
suing winter. This black, piratical
lug Is the surest evidence or Its pres
ence, In Hie "flower-blight" a whole
bunch of flowers, or frequently every
bunch upon the trees will be affected
and dying buck lo the beginning of
the spur, hold Hie blackened flowers
and young fruit also the entire year.
'J'hls is the most form on I he apple.
Frequently an entire limb or even
the trunk will lie ullected for only a
short distance, while the top will slill
be entirely free from the diseane, and
and this cull only be understood vt hen
we sptek of how the disease Is spread.
More frequently upon the pear sev
eral limbs and even the whole trunk
will be ullected, and When this is the
case the tree should be cut out root and
and brunch.
If the young Bhoots of a tree affected
with blight lie examined, small drops
of sticky, thick fluid will be found ex fioin the edge of the dlseasearea.
If one of these drops lie examined with
a high power of a microscope, myriads
of little oblong bodies w ill be seen,
some separate, some in short chains.
These are bacteria. Arthur proved
that thei-e bodies Inoculated Into a
sound tree by a needle, would produce
the disease. Walte proved to usoeyoiid
dispute that Insects, eseclully bees,
are the main instruments in their dls
cinlnutlon. They are attracted by the
viscid sap, suck up part or all of the
dr ip, and then carrry thousands of
i lure germs with them to inoculate
fiove.s, shoots, or wounded places In
t'iu bark. Undoubtedly heavy currents
f hid assist in spreading the disease
mid probably amount for the common
ness of "twig-bllght." The question
comet right here; Shall I keep bees if
I have an orehurd? Certainly, aud for
two reasons. First, the honey, and the
revenue derived from It, are often no
small object to the farmer. Second,
the bees are absolutely needed to assist
in proper crosa-n rtlllatlon or polllna
tlon of the (lowers. This leads us to
the subject of remedies, for preventive
mere are none.
As soon as the bacteria are carried lo
a young flower or wound, they effect
entrance,' mid living upon the sap nod
si arch, multiply rnpldfy. If they gain
eutraiiee along a llmli or trunk, they

It can readily be seen from this that

careful and continuous use of the saw
and pruning knife. All diseased
shoots and limbs should be cut off ut
from six Inches to one foot below the
place of evident Infection or Injury, as
the bacteria have always gone down
deeper Into the limb than seems to be
the case from the nut aide. Many
pinners have the habit of splitting
down the pear or apple orchard, the

time it Is used, hy either passing it
through, or dipping it into weak car-
bnlio ucld-water,or into kerosene. The

should be done whenever the disease
makes lis appearance. All large
wounds should be painted over with
paint us soon as the tree la trimmed, to
prevent the re-lnoculatlon. through the
exposed tissues. Where the blight Is
bud, even young shoots or water-
sprouts should have their cut bases
painted, for it has been shown timeand
again that the limbs and even trunks
have been inoculated through these
cut stulis.

A Back Number.
We are in receipt of a booklet on
Oregon, tent out by the publicity depart
ment of the Lewis and Clark exposition
at Portland that is made up of old sta
tistics in many Instance!,, and contains
information hastily compiled- and not
up to date. If the statistic of other
counties are as old and out of date at
those of Wasco county, in thit book
purporting to show the "resources of
Oregon," it it a colossal libel on i the
state. There it no reason why such a
publication should not be carefully
compiled and information given that
win snow up tne country in at favorable
ngnt, at possible. The wonderful ad
vancement that hat been ' made in
Oregon during the Tast few years,
demands a complete revision of the old
statistics of Ave and ten year ago. New
sections are being developed in the state
that are now lively commercial centers
and prosperous and thicklr aettled farm

were deserts or a wilderness.

The above startling array of figures
