II. C. Atwel), postmaster of Forent
Orove, Ore., bus the following com-
nmnioatiou in t'ie Forest Orove
Times, regarding his impressions of
Hood Rivei methods and results, af
ter attending the horticultural meet'
iug held here last mouth :
It whs my privily recently to visit
Hood River and Httend a meeting of
tne fruit growers ot that bustling com
inunity. Mr. Smith aud Mr. Mason,
who bo ably assisted us lu organizing
our society, recently, were especially
careful that 1 should miss none of the
glories of their beautiful valley.
I be meeting was a greut success
ana resulted In the organization of a
society similar to ours, with a mem.
bership of 101.
Don lit loss the membership would
have been much larger, had it not
been for the fact that the fruit growers
of that place already had two stionu
organizations known as the Hood
Hirer Apple (! rowers Union and the
Hood River Kiuit Growers' Union.
the latter haviug been organized to
look alter the interests of bery
A visit to Hood Klver is au interest
ing aud instructive experience.
liood Kiver is one of the most wide
awake and progressive communities
to be found anywhere, its people are
hospitable in the highest dogr&e, ami
perfectly willing to give one the ben
efit of their experiences.
Hood Kiver affords au Impressive
object lesson iu co-operative and in
tensive farming. Their Individual
holdiugs are small, twenty acres ot
apples in full bearing being cousidorud
ail that the individual can properly
eaie for. Division feuces are being
done away with, as a useless expense,
abaiborfor iusects and a hindrance
to cultivation. The; have uo ueed of
s "oh fences, as they would not think
of pasturing their orchards.
Ihey prune annually aud systemat
ically, with careful attention to every
detuil. They practice clean cultiva
tion. With few exceptions their troes
-tre trained in the hollow vase form,
so as to let in the sunshine, which
gives the beautiful red to their Spit
zenbergs. They do not crowd their
trees with main limbs and 1 did not
see a tree whose top started more thau
two feet above ground.
They believe lu low heads, liecause
suoh heads greatly reduce the oost of
spraying, thinning aud picking, and
they have demonstrated that the low
beaded tree, if its main branches huve
been made stocky by proper pruning,
is just as easy to work about with a
team as the palm trees which we grow
in such itbuniiuuce and miscall applo
They do not allow their tree tops to
become brush heaps, because they
know they cannot prow highly colored
fruit iu a brush heap. They thin
beir tops iu winter, but defer cutting
them back until summer a practice
we could well follow; for if you con
tinue to cut hack the top of a tree iu
wiuter, you will soon huve it so dense
bird can t got tbrougn it.
Their splaying is thoroughly done
aud they adopt every rontrivntice and
items to save l.iliur and stcure etll-
When their apples have formed aud
appear to be more than the trees can
proneily matuie, tbey pick rlf the
surplus apples. It matters not if they
remove two-thirds the crop. They
know the apples have to be picked
some time, aud believe the time to do
it is b' fore those not desired have
taken the strength of the tree from
the other fruit. Tbey have figured
out that there is more profit in one
box of $2.00 apples than in three boxes
of 75c apples.
When It comes to harvesting, the
Hood River grower picks bis apples,
puts them in bis packing house, wipes
them, gets bis boxes ready and notillei
the anion or other packing company.
The latter sends it packing crew of
four packers and au inspector who
pack the crop in short order.
Toe boxes are branded to sbow vari
ety, quality, -color aud size. The
name of the grower, the Inspector aud
the union are all affixed. Expensive,
do you say? It doesn't cost the Hood
Kiver grower as much to huve bis ap
ples iu that manner as it costs you
aud me to have ours pankfll after the
ityle usually followed here;
Wbeu the apples are to be shipped
tbey are hauled to the car iu a spring
wagon no other vehicle would be per
mitted. No one in Hood River valley thinks
of packing bis own apples; first, be
cause be can t do It so cheaply, and
second, because the stamp of the un
ion addsvoc a box to tbe selling price.
Tne benefits of the union, which is
an entirely co. operative alfuir, are il
lustrated lu many ways.
Tbe union buys boxes, paper and
spraying material by tbe cur load.
It furnishes the grower boxes at 8'..,c
which cost mo 11a. There are other
packing and shipping concerns there
wbo pursue the same methods, except
that tbey buy from the grower.
All tbese evoiHtlons of up-to-date
methods aud successful results did
ot discourage me. They rut her lu
ll i red me to work for the same results
here, especially asl was giveu, private
ly, two admissions. One was that tne
Willamette valley apple keeps as well
as the Hood Kiver apple; tbe other
was that we could undoubtedly get as
good color if we adopted their
In view of tbese admissions, does
not tbe success of Hood Kiver warrant
our attempting to achieve like results?
We know we have a good apple
country. If we raised enough to
make a carload of one variety, the
buyers would come to us aud pay us
a fair value. Rut we i ust study the
business in all its aspects and woik
The place to do this is iu our horti
cultural society. Let us not work
alone, but pull together and we shidl
obtain satisfactory results.
11. C. At well
The trade in box apples presents
some interesting features just new.
The prices of this stock has held re
markably steady, scarcely more than
2o oeuts per box higher than lust fall,
when us barrelled stock in the sume
time has advaucod fully $2 per barrel.
Tbe difference Is, of course, that
boxed fruit stnrted off high last fab
?2 and $2.50, when barrels were sell
ing at M. This is a nice point for
packers, showing how much moie val
uable the fruit is in boxes; but the
demand for the latter Is comparatively
limited; and high as apples are, if ail
the apples for domestic consumption
were pacaea in boxes, probably uo
such prices as those now ruling could
be obtained. Ther is a high class of
trade which will take apples packed
this way at stetdy prices all through
the season, and at a relatively high
figure; and this trade is extending
just as rapidly us production in the
uorthwest. Dealers who keep up with
both sorts are of tbe opinion that for
the present, at least, barrels are the
most satisfactory package for the groat
bulk of eastern grown apples, and
that uo change in style of this paok
age is needed yet awhile. Fruit Trade

WANT TO COME INTO NEW COUNTY
Votes 78 to 13 tu Stay in Old County,
ltut Favor Coming Into New
Comity If Created.
Hy a vote of 73 to 13 Mosier decided
last Saturday to stay In tbe old coun
ty. A resoluliou iutioduoed by A. P.
Ilatohum to the effect that if the new
county was created whether Mosier
would be iu fuvor of coming in the
newconnty, curried by a voto of 37
to 27. The ballot was uot, however,
allowed to go to a vote, for as soou as
the ilrst vote was taken a motion to
ad juuru was made and carried.
The meeting was called to order by
Alex Ktewart, who was made secretary,
and K. H. Woods was selected as
chairman. The chairman announced
that one hour would be devoted to de
bate, allowing each speaker live min
utes to talk. Mr. Middhnwart was
the ilrst speaker and said that he
thought that it would be better for
Mosier to remain in the old couuty,
but that if there was any one present
who could enlighten the meeting on
the question it would lie only right
to allow them the door.
This did not seem to meet with tbe
approval of the majority, however,
and us the chairman had announced
that only residents of the Mosier dis
trict would be allowed to talk, outsid
ers were burred.
Chas. Phillips then made a talk say
ing that if the division of the county
was a business proposition he was wil
ling to listou to any one who could
show figures or statistics to prove it.
a. r. nutenuru rneu Had tne secre
tary read the figures published In tbe
Ulacier as to the cost of the proposed
now county, and Inter introduced a
resolution to the etl'ect that if the
new county was created whether Mo
sier wanted to he with the new or the
old, and it was curried to allow a vote
to he taken, but as soon us the first
vote was tul;en a motion to adjourn
was made ami carried, and tbe meet
ing whs over.
Several other gentlemen talked on
the proposition, including J. IM, Mo
sier, Mr. Cnritill und others, who were
in in vor ot tne new county, provided
it could be shtnvu that it ius for the
interest of Mosier.
LIME, SULPHUR AND
SALT SPRAY IS BEST
Below will be found an article call
ing attention to the necessity of
spraying either for or to prevent Ban
Jose sculo and fungus diseases of
fruit trees. The article is by Prof.
Cordoloy, who calls attention to tbe
fact that in recent experiments car
ried on by tbe Oregou Experiment
Station, the limo, sulphur aud salt
compound has ptoved more effica
cious than Hie lime sulphur com
pound to fully justify the use of tbe
salt, Iu this connection it is well to
remember that the lime, sulphur snd
suit compound was originated in Cali
fornia and wus the result of a greut
amount of very thoroi gh experimen
tal work. At the experiment stations
in Idaho and Eastern Washington the
4id it ion of the suit has not apparent
ly added to the ein rtiveness of the
spray. The climutio conditions at
Pullman, Wash., and Moscow, Idaho,
are quite tlill'erent iu winter fiom
those ot Western Oregon. Wa have
therefore always recommended tbe use
of the salt iu the compound for the
region west of the Cascades, where
the rainy winters niiike it necessary
that the compound be such as will
stick to the trees, it is believed that
the salt makes the liine-sulphur-sitlt
compound better than a lime-sulphur
compound. At any rate for the pres
ent the evidence is strongly in favor
of using the old reliable formula west
of the Cascades. This is the vory best
time of the year to apply this spray.
It is the nearest to a cure-all spray of
any known. As Prof. Cordley says,
it kills the Hun Jose scale, destroys
Bticb germs of fungus diseases as it
roaches, cleans the moss oil the trees
and kills to a large extent the woolly
aphis, aud other insect pests widen
may be on the trees.
In the second edition of Insecti
cides and Fungicides, by Prof. Cord
ley, just issued by the Oregon Exper
iment Station, what is known as the
"Oregon formula" is recommended
as the best for this climate. This re
quires: Quick lime 50 pounds.
Sulphur 00 pounds
Salt 2f tu 50 pounds.
"Blake the lime thoroughly, add tbe
nilphur, cover with water and boil
briskly for at leust an hour. Then
add the salt and boil 15 or 20 niluntes
longei, or until the mixture is a deep
blood-red color. Add water to make
150 gallons. Apply with considerable
force through a coarse nozzle while
The reason the spray should be ap
plied while still warm is that it is
hard to make it work wbeu it geta
cool. It is not desirable to use it
boiling hot, as ii then injures the
hoi.e. Dunne's solid spray is made
according to the nboie formula und
should also be applied warm. Inspec
tor Iveid say i that he has found that
the DuuiiH so'id spray is effective
when properly applied.
it should be remembered tbut the
lime, sulphur and salt spiuy applied
before the trees blossom will in most
seasons prevent the curl leaf of tbe
peach. It also takes tbe place of
spraying with Bordeaux mixture be
fore the blossoms open on apple and
pear trees for the preveution of fcab.
The scab is what makes blotches and
hard, cracked places on the fruit and
one of the causes of black spots on -the
leaves of apples and pears.
President Kremout Wood of the
Idaho State Horticultural association
called attention to the fact that on
October 11, 1004, 100 boxea of pears,
grown and shipped by H. C. Myers of
lioise, Idaho, s"ld in New York for
732.50, cr an average of $7.32 pet box,
thus surpassing the remarkable high
price of $ti.H5 per box obtained for a
carload of Southern Oregon pears.
