Horticultural Inspect inn In Oregon.
(From mi address delivered by IIou.
W. K. Newell at the Milwaukie OrauKe
Fair, October 3 ), lUOj. )
You who, are interested iu such
matters know that for the past teu or
twelve years we Lave had iu Oregon a
State lioard of Horticulture. This
beard has beeu composed of practical
fruit growers, who have tried to solve
the various questions relating to the
iudustry ; the be-t methods of culture,
pruning, spraying, etc ; aud by means
of a lii-enuial Keport they have given
this knonli-dge to the public. These
reports have come to be recognized all
over the Northwest as standards of
authority ou the subject. All nurser
ies have been given careful inspection,
and uone tut clean trees have been
allowed to be sold ; aud, as far as the
limited funds would permit, personal
inspection of orchards has beeu given.
Hut iu the last lew years pests have
ur ltiplied amazingly, aud fungous
diieises (detelOje, tee:niugly, iu a
night. The terriU ry is so vast and
the orchards are so numerous that it
was impossible for the commissioners
to gbt hi ouml and atteud to all the
work necessary if our fruit industry
is to be maiutuiued. So, last winter,
the Legislature was asked to pass a
liw providing for the appointment of
county fruit inspectors, and under
this law (T '.ckumas County was one
of the first to petition for an inspect
or. The county couit appoiutod Mr.
James II. Keid, and a tow weeks lat
er tho county court of Multnomah
County also appointed him for that
county, it is needless for uie to speak
of the good work he has beeu doing
iu stopping the sale of wormy aud
scaly infested fruit in the markets.
This iB a i-tep iu the right direction,
and a movement that should have the
support of every fruit grower, and, I
should add, consumer also. For the
consumer is boiug defrauded when he
buys a box of wormy, scabby apples,
even though lie may think he is get
ting them cheap. When ouly clean,
sound fruit is allowed ou sale, prices
can be bi'tter maintained ; the con
sumer will get full value for his mon
ey and tho demand will be increased.
This is tilt) only rational way to fight
tho fruit pest queftion. You may try
to compel a man to spray his trees,
but if he can still sell the fruit wheth
er he sprays or not, ho is not very
likely to care much, aud if he spray s
at all will do it ouly half heartedly.
You can luud a horse to water, but
you can't make him drink; so you
may compel a man to spray occasion
ally but you can't make him have
clean fruit, unless it is to his direct
interest. If he knows he can't sell it
unless it is clean he is very likely to
clean up. If a mini lias trees infest
ed with pests that are an injury to
his neighbors, and he refuses to abate
the n Uance, the inspector, under the
new law, lius the power to have the
trees destroyed by due process. There
is no desire to work a hardship on
anyone, hence tho diseaseil fruit this
year is allowed to be sold to the can
nery and viurgfir factory, as it was
thought right aud proper to give full
notice that none might plead iguo
ranee. The lines will be closer drawn
next season, autl the pig or sheep will
bo the only market for such fruit.
The services of the county inspect
or aud the district commissioner are
at the disposal of any fruit grower
who wants any information or in
struction as to the care of his trees,
spraying, etc , aud it is urged that
everyone will help in building up
once more a reputation for tine fruit
iu the Willamette valley. Kight here
iu MilwHiikie was at one time the
most famous orchards ou tho Pacific
Coast, ami tome of the most niagni
lioent apples that ever grew wore
prodc.ed here. Yuu h ar it said ou
every hand: "Oh yes, Hue apples used
to grow here, Lut they won't do it
any more." Hut 1 believe thoyjjwill
grow now just as tine as they ever did.
Of course, it requires more care aud
work, I. ut, it is work that will be well
paid. Insect pests and fungous dis
eases have increased so rapidly that
it, is ot course absolutely useless for
anyone to attempt growing tree fruits
without preparing to do thorough
spraying, not only once a year, but
every time it is needed. I am not
going to bore you with any formulae
for spraying tonight, Lut it has beeu
proven beyond question that a tree
properly pruned, cultivated aud
sprayed will produce just as many
line apples right here iu Clackamas
County as any tree ever did any
where, and furthermore, these apples
being free from scab, mildew, bitter
rot and worm holes, will keep just as
long and hnvo just as tine a lluvor as
they hit did.
Two years ago, iu a test, Jonathan
and Northern Spy apples lrom Scap
pooso were sent to Hood Kiver aud
placed iu an apple storage house to
gether with a great variety ot apples
grown there, and proved to be better
keepers than tho tame varieties there
and among the very best of any va
liety. Last fall some 121HI boxes of
apples were placed in cold storage,
for the Lewis and Clark Exposition,
ami the Willamette Valley ones were
among the bett keepers.
There is a vast M.iirkct opening up
across the Tacilic lur our fruit, not
a high-priced market perhaps, but our
medium grades will go there, while
our strictly fancy ones can go to the
ivistein states and F.urope.
I'roliiahlc truit Season In Idaho.
Tho last shipment of prunes to the
eastern market for the season of 1IW.)
was made Monday, tho product of
southwestern Idaho approximating 3UU
cars, and at prices considerably above
the average. The commission houses
aud larger growers are now packing
pears and apples for shipment. This
will continue toi two or three weeks.
About twenty cars of pears aud
peaches hae been shipped, itti per
haps teu rars of Winter Nellis pears
jet to l,o loaded, sujs the lioiss News.
The Siusel Commission Company is
loading lis liist cai of apples today.
11 consist.- ut Jonathans, Human
lie.ui.ty, aud tirinuv' Colden, iu about
equal part.-, and all of a superior qual
u, which are expected to bring the
top ut the inaiket. The prediction la
n.adethat fully J II 0 cars of apples will
be sent east, besides a larger amount
t.jin ever will go into storage lor
hon.e consumption.
vV bile tho early report that the crop
would show a shortage has uot beeu
ventitd by the result of the shipments,
the i.t-.v u'ichards coming into bearing
making up tor tho apparent damage
caused by unseasonable weather last
spring, the indications are that with
a.ei .o weather uext spriug the crop
of i.ioii will lie a record breaker.
As a rule the quality of fruit of all
kinds has beeu excellent. Some orch
ard ists have neglected spraying at
freely as they should, and as a conse
quence hate produced scaly fruit,
which has beeu reject) il by the buy
ers, and the marketing of the crop
prohibited Ibis will have the effect
of causing tho growers to be more
carelul iu the future, aud the reputa
tion of Idaho trull placed in the trout
rank. ,
The season generally has been the
most proUtable ever enjoyed by Idaho
nrchaidists. the total amount being
received approximately upwards of
$500,000. Fears are especially high
in the eastern market, one oar (hip
ped from Medford, Or., foiling for
&),42 or nearly 10 cents for each pear
in the car.
This morning C. J. Siueel who
made an exhibit of prunes railed to
the Boise valley at the St. Louis ex
position, received notice that be bad
been awarded the silver medal for the
prune display made in competition
with the world. He has plaoed the
diploma on exhibition In bis olBoe,
aud expects to receive the medal in a
few days. Although the exhibit was
made at au expense of more tban WOO,
the advertisement it bas given Idabo
fruit has fully repaid the cost.
Underwood The Logical Depot Site.
Amos Underwood is firmly convinc
ed that Underwood will be tbe main
depot of the Northern Paoiflo when
the railroad is completed down the
north bank of the Columbia. He fig
ures it all out this way :
"Stevenson will of course be a
depot. Carson will be another and
Drano at the mouth of tbe Little
White Salmon will be a whistling sta
tion. The next stop, about seven
miles this side of Drano, will be Un
derwood. You can't get around that.
Tbe trad i from tbe interior will
ootne down tbe new grade from Trout
Lake and thus our town is tbe logical
location for tbe main depot opposite
flood Kiver.
"The White Salmon dock is bat a
few miles distant. The traius would
bardly be started before tbey bad to
stop there, and as Jim Hill intends to
make fast time both going and com
ing, his train will bardly make regu
lar stops at that point.
"This means that the next depot
east of Underwood will be at Bingen.
This would give tbe people of White
Salmon town a better grade anyway,
than the one to the boat landing.
From Bingen the trains will run di
rect to Lyle. There will then be a
station opposite The Dalles and at
"Mark my predictions and see if I
havn't got it figured out about
A Slight Mistake.
As an instance where a bad cold
caused a startling conversation there
is a joke being told here at tbe ex
pense of a modest young newspaper
man in a neighboring town, whioh is
so good it ought to be true, says tbe
Bristol News. The young man in
question it appears was recently invit
ed to a party at a residence where the
home bad recently been blessed witb
an addition to the family. Accom
panied by his best girl he met bis kind
hostess at the door aud after the cus
tomary salutations, asked after tbe
welfare of the baby. The lady was
suffering from a severe cold wbicb
made her slightly deaf, and she mis
takenly supposed that the young man
was inquiring about her cold. She re
piled that though she usually bad
one every winter this was tbe worst
she had ever bad; it bad kept ber
awake at night a great deal at first
aud confined ber to her bed. Tben
noticing that the scribe was becoming
pale and nervous, she said she could
see by his looks that he was going to
have one like hers aud asked him if
he wished to lie down.
The paper came out as usual the
uext week, but the editor bas given
up inquiring about babies.
Iu Memory of Miss Ada Crockett.
Thy mission here is ended,
Thy Saviour called thee borne.
Witb outstretched bauds He welcomes
To His bright and happy throne.
He called thee iu life's morning,
A lily pure and fair,
To decorate the heavenly throne,
And bloom forever there.
Thy loved ones dear will mourn for
And miss thy presence here;
But God will be their comforter
Aud wipe away their tears.
She was too pure for earth
So heaven claimed its own;
She left her loved ones here
To mourn and weep alone.
She's standiug 1 1 tbe golden gate
Witb arms extended wide;
Waiting to meet her loved ones
Wheu they reach tb 3 other side.
Oh Ada, dear, from thy brigbt bome
Of happiness and bliss,
Ask thy Saviour dear to pity them.
And cheer their louliuess.
Now farewell, beloved Ada,
Though on earth we meet no more,
Wo hope to meet you, darling,
On the bright eternal shore.
