HONEY IN WALNUTS
SAYS G. W. PETERS
Oregon grow the English walnut
tree to protection, and ita cultivation
will make farmers wealthy, aocording
to Captain U. W. Peters, who baa
charge of the Prince walnut grove,
near Dundee, in Yamhill county.
"We hav) llu aires iu Euylisb wal
nuts," he said today, "and trees that
re nine years old bore two bushels
of nuts eaoh last season. They will
continue to bear heavier yields each
succeeding year, tud there is no tell
l.ig when walnut tree reaches its
maximum productivity. 1 know trees
in the Old Country whose trunks are
tour to five feet in diameter and
whose age can only be conjectured.
"The cultivation of the walnut tree
will pay the farmers of Oregon from
$200 to 1300 an acre, and there is no
fear of tu market becoming glutted.
At present the price is 15 to 16 oeuts
a pound, and the world is after all
that are produced.
"The tree requires less care than
any otbei and the cost of painting is
very small. I planted my walnut
trees 40 feet apart, and the land be
tween the rows can be used for other
purposes. At eight years they begin
to bear, and at nine their profit-making
points begin to show.
"We obtained the most of our
plants by growing them from nuts'im
poited from France. Care must be
taken in the selection of properly
granea biock, in oraer mac pest re
suits may oe ootainea. lne young
trees cost about 25 cents each. At 25
trees to the acre, the original cost
obtaining stock would be $6.50.
lne Anglian walnut grows to per
feotion in Oregon, i No pests among
it ; no spralyng is necessary, and the
selection oft he ground is even of seo
ondary importance, though the soil
should be well drained. You don't
have ti cultivate the land previous to
planting. A large proportion of the
Prince oi chard was simply cleared of
its big timber and the young trees
rlanted a nongtt tne big stumps. This
is another great advantage in favor
of walnut tree oultivatiou in tbe tim
bered districts of tbe Northwest
where thousands of acres now 'logged
otr by tbe limber men cm be reu
dered highly profitable without the
expense of clearing necessary for tbe
growth of graiu, grasses and fruits,

and in tbe department of lsere, where
almost all walnuts are grafted, are
trees of Mayette, Franquette and
Chaberte, grafted on French walnut
root (Juglans Regia), for no other
stock is used in that country for graft
ing purposes, that tbe oldest inhabl
taut cannot tell the age. Huge wal
nut trees, three to four feet in diam
eter, may be seen all over tbe south
west of France, worth a great deal of
money for the wood. A gentleman
from Oregon, who a year ago came to
California to investigate tbe walnut,
and who last summer went to France,
right in the walnut district of lsere.
to continue his investigations, wrote
to me from Ciieuoble tbat be saw

nuts that had been sold for $240 for
lumber; but it was, be added, 200

In tbe superior court, tbe jury on

Mr. Fred Townsend, one of the
large raspberry growers of Illinois
gives some points on tbe care of this
fruit thpt will be Interesting to our
Northwestern growers. He says:
1 handle both the red and the black
raspberries, and tbey do well here.
1 have several varieties of both kinds.
The blackcaps are tbe most profitable
for market berry, but both kinds do
well with me. Tbe disease called An
tbraonose is the worst enemy of tbe
black beeps, but I have never seen any
disease in the reds on my place and
never had failure. I don't know of
any raspberry plantation that is
twelve years old, but J think with
proper care tbey could be made profit
able for tbat length of time. 1 have
some that are seven or eight years old
apparently as good as ever, but if
tbey are let grow too thick the berries
are not as large and not so easy to
l ick. I have found the best way for
handling the red raspberry here is to
have them in rows so as to oultivate
with team same as coru, with about
four or five feet between the rows and
let them fill up in the row until about
two feet wide, and by frequent culti
vation suckers can be kept Irom be
tween the rows. Blackcaps should be
grown in hills about Ave or six feet
between the rows and with about four
leet between tbe hills. Cultivate tbe
asme as the reds.

Mrs. Mason gave a short talk on ber
trip as delegate to tbe State Orange.
She spoke briefly of tbe social feat
ures of tbe State Orange and of the
royal reception tendered the Hood
River delegates In giving us tbe State
Orange for 11)07 by a unanimous vote
of tbe Orange and al-o a state office,
also of the beautiful Moor work given
by tbe local Oranges, aud she would
impress upon our members the ne
cessity of practice so e wil be able
to entertain next year.
Next on tbe program was a song,
"Way down in Louisiana, by Mrs.
Blanche Wilson Shelley.
Next was Delegate A. I. Masons re
port of tbe business work of tbe State
Orange. His leport told of muoh
good work done by tbe State Orange.
Tbe most important measures consid
ered at that meeting was the asking
for a constitutional amendment giv
ing us an imperative mandate law and
the redisricting the state into single
representative districts. Many other
measures of much lmportanoe was
considered at the State Orange and a
better meeting was never bald since
its organize ion. We predict much
good from the work done there.
Following this was a song by a quar
tette of mixed voices, "When the
fields are white with daisies." Tbe
encore tbey were given showed this
most beautiful song was appreciated
and in answer they sang "Sweet Adeline.
Our meeting had an amusing inci
dent and one tbat sbows tbe Orange
work is appreciated. Same one in
troduced a resolution asking for
monthly meetings until October 1, but
when the motion was voted upon a
huge majority wanted tbe Orange to
meet as usual, twice a month. It
seems as though we were into some
thing we can't leave, it is a part of
our social aud educational life, and
any attempt to make it farther be
tween meetings is not very popular.
Choir sang "Merrily Ring,' and tbe
Orange closed in regular form to meet
in two weeks.
D. N. Byerlee, local weather obser
ver, reports the observation at Hood

Tbe weather has been for a great
part of tbe month a little above the
normal in temperature. The normal
i temperature for May is ob de
grees, while this year tbe mean tem
perature was 58.33 degrees. The nor
mal mean maximum lor May is oi ae-
grees, while tne mean maximum tnis
year was bY.ov degrees, xne normal
mean minimum, too, is lowei, being
45 degrees, while the mean minimum
foi this year was 9 degrees.
Tbe precipitation snows a plus, tne
normal precipitation for May being
1.26 inches, and we received 1.52
inches of rainfall.
There was a light frost on the 16th
which did no damage tbat was uotice-
ble. Altogether tbe moutb has been
very favorable for all crops, inoluding
te berries, for bad tbe weather been
such as we are having now tbe output
would bave been cut very much of
what it now is by reason of the ber
