Missouri me making preparutiouii to
secure Htatistics in regard to tlie pro
duction of fruit in the Htute, to he
U8od in tulvertining Missouri in (111
pints of the world.
It is estimated that there are up
wards of 20(()00,WX) bearing apple trees
in Missouri, and the state is in fact
as well as in name the veritable "Land
of the HiK lied Apple," aa there is
not another state in the Union that
baa anywhere near this number of ap
pie trees. New York, which used to
be oouaidered the premier apple state
of the country, claims to have about
15,000,(KX) trees which are bearing
Many of the Missouri tieos are yet
voiiiiR, and have not reached their full
bearing capacity, and as the present
indications point to tho largest fruit
yield in the history of tho state, fruit
growers are anxiously waiting to see
what tho "grand old commonwealth
can do in the wuy of an apple yield
when she triB. It has been a number
of years since tl.ere lias been a full
yield of fruit in Missouri and oxpeits
are predicting mat 11 uio present ex
peotations are realized the yield will
surprise even the most sanguine wis
souriau, as only a small. peicentage of
the present unmoor of trees were hear
ing at the time of the Just full yield,
which was in HHJi.
Of late tho Ozark country lias be
come almost one vast orchard and
year after year these fruit farms are
increasing in area. Not only is Mis
souri famous for her apples, but she
has secured a good reputation as
neach state, as well as producer of
small fruits. This reputation is well
earned, as her apples, peaches, straw
berries and watermelons aro remark
ablo. not only for their sizo and keep
ing qualities, but for their fine flavor
as well, and Missouri fruit finds ready
buyers in any marker 1 it the country.
Apples are grown in all parts of the
state, but most of tho peaches are
iirown south of the Missouri river.
Millions of trees are already bearing
fruit, but tho business is still in its
infancy and growers are claiming with
good reason that the state will soon
become, if she is not already, the
leading peach state, as well as the
lamest apple growing state, iu the
Another advantngo possessed by the
state is that, owing to her poculiar
climate, the crops, particularly of
strawharrlos, watermelons and peach
os, in ouo part of the state are gather
ed and disposed of before they ripen
iu another district, thus allowing
them to be rue hud to market as soon
as they mature without causing a
Jt is the intention of these St. Louis
capitalists as soon as the fiuit crop is
disposed of, and authentia statistics
can lie secured to send these figures
broadcast all over this country and

the wonderful resources of the state,

ers as well as to broaden the markets

Advice us to Cherry Picking.
At tho mid-winter horticultural
meeting held at Hartford, Michigan,
Denton (Jerhardt gave his plan lor
picking cherries. His methods are
so radically diirerent from thoso prac
ticed by the ordinary grower that a
lively discussion followed. He gave a
general outline of his methods of rais
ing the cherry, soil, locution, selec
tion of stock varieties, culture, etc.,
all of which do not dill'er materially
from the methods practiced and
recommended by nil good groweiv.
As introductory to his talk on pick
ing and packing Mr. (icrhardt said
that by the usual methods of pulling
chenies tlie trees were mined and a
chance for a next year's crop greatly
lessened by pulling of buds anil limbs
together with large quantities of hark,
thus creating wuiiuds and raw places
tor the introduction uf germs and at
the same time lets oiling tho vitality
of tho trees.
Instead, therefore, of pulling the
cherries ho has large sheets made so
that two of them will cover the ground
under tho largest of his trees. These
sheets are spread under a tree and
the pickers bland on ladders cut the
stems of the chenies lofting them fail
upon tlie sheets. Others follow close

and sort them into quart boxes ready
