THE APPLE CROP
The PajBro valley In at preaont the
only important HuippiiiK point (or ap
ple in California. A few iotlier sec
tioiiB, such as Sonoma and BeliitHto
(,ol, noted for early UraveunteiiiH, the
Santa Clara valley, and placet) in
Huffibodlt and Lake coiintioa and In
tbe Sierras, are local shippers to San
Franolaoo, and in the southern part
of tbe itate, Arroyo Urande, Lorn par
valley and the Julian district are
tributary to hot Augeleg. None of
these minor points now produce
Bultloieut apple of export trade.
The output of the valley In 11X15 was
3,000 carlodn of 15 tons each. The
crop this year will be about the name.
In the course of a few years the out
put will larjely increase as not one
half of the orchards are et bearing.
The Pajaro valley testa its reputa
tion principally on two varieties of
yellow apples, the liellllower and Now
town Plpptu, although other varieties
Apples have been raised oonunero
lully In the Pajaro valley for the last
twenty years. The business was small
until 181)5, whan Newtowns were (list
exported to England. That oouutry
welcomed them warmly and exports
to Kurope grew from 14,000 boxes in
1895 to 1(!,(XX) boxes in 1U05.
Until latoly the shipping business
was entirely in the hands ot packers
who bought tbe apples for lump sums
ou the trees from the orchardlsts, but
In the last three years the custom ol
handling the fruit ou commission has
grown in favor, the orchardist pick
ing his fruit and hauling to the pack
ing house where It Is packed and
marketed on a commission basis. Tblt
system gives better results both to
buyer and seller. Bales of orchards
for lump sums ot money are demons
Ing, although it will be many years
before they disappear altogether.
The package used Is the Watson ville
box, 0in.xllx221n. for four and four
and half tier, and l)in.xl'2.'2?lu. for
three tier. Apples are graded into the
following sizes: I'our-and-nall tier,
2'ilu. to liVlu. lu diametei; four
tiei, 2 to 3 In. in diameter; throe
tier, above 3 In. Id diameter.
It is to be regretted that we hare
Dot a fruit package law, such as exists
In Canada, it presenl tne pacKoi
turning out llrst class pack, true to
quality and description marked ou the
box, has to compote with more or loss
dishonest packs put up by unscrupu
lous and Ignorant packers.
In the matter of transportation, the
Pajaro valley is dependent on a single
line, the Southern Paoillo. It Is pos
sible, however, that in a year or two
It may have a competing line, either
the Western Paclllo or the Sauta J'e.
The valloy is also cursed with au ex
elusive refrigerator car contract be
tween the Southern Pacitlo and one of
the leading refrigerator oar lines. It
is to be hoped that time will soon
remedy both of these evils.
The culture of apples has so far beou
profitable, both to raisers and to
packers and shippers. Ot course, ns
in all sections whore apples are raised
in quantities, pests have appeared to
wony the orohardisU. The San Jose
scale, the woolly aphis and the codliu
moth have been the principal enemies.
isoieutltlo spraying, systematic
methods and caiful culture have so far
overcome all of these dllllculties, al
though they are not exterminated ami
will appear again as soon as care is
relaxed. P. W. Morse lu the Packer,
Newliullim Apple Deal.
Ilenjamiu Newhall, of Chioago, well
known as an expert ou apples, when
vsked lor au opinion the suasou turn
ending and the coming deal, had the
following to say to the Packer "The
wind up of the seasou 1005-HMi in ap
pies has been, lu tbe main, satisfying
to the trade. Some bad spots there
have been, but they were not serious,
"A few have lost money, not many;
a few have brokeu even ; a good many
have made a fair profit, and a few a
uomparatively heavy one.
"Probably tho deal has nmdo an av
erage of 'JO per cent profit on the
" l'he I'M crop went Into storage al
n high price-the highest since 11KH
and there were Rome periods when the
heavy holders sonroely dared face the
music, and tried to forget the cost ol
their goods and the prospects for
"What is before us for this season?
The crop guesseiB are busy. You can
take your choice of estimates of thit
crop from 50 per cent over Jatt yearV
sma'l total to 100 per cent more than
the formor biggest crop in lMKi.
"It Is early yet. There Is time for
bitter rot, drought and storms. On
the other hand quality, healthy ap
pearance ot tbe foliage, and favorable
weather at blooming time may mako s

the largest estimate that has yet been

Government Apple Crop licpori.
Washington, I). O., July 30.-111
government crop report gives the
peroeutage conditions of the apple
crop la each of the states and territo
ries. Compared with the conditions
la June apples In New Kugland
how a detei juration of 3 to 15 points,
the conditions ranging from 77 to M.
in the section from York state to Vir
ginia there was a decline during June
1 of 6 to 15 points and the condition
July 1 ranged from 65 to 75. The low
est oooditioni were in Maryland
1st and are selling 1 hem for
Hen, Women and Children's Shoes
where they were from 50 to 00, this
being au olf year in those two stall's.
The York state condition is given as
75. In tho central states, that is from
Pennsylvania west to the Mississippi
river, the crop maintained a good
condition during June, the heaviest
loss being 0 points, while Illinois lo t
nothing and one or . wo other states
lost but a point or two. One surpris
ing featuie of tho report Is that it
makes the condition in Arkansas only
50, while Missouri is given as Hi!, or
one point higher than ou June 1. The
Kauss condition is given as 78. Ihe
heaviest loss in con it ion in any one
important state is that of Colorado,
which dropied from 1)7 June 1 to 80
July 1. Other western states did not
chunge materially during the month.
Saul hern Oregon Fruit.
O. A. Hover, of Phoenix, a promi
nent fruit grower residing in the
heart ot the liogiie Kiter fruit dlstiiut
said to the Oiegonian:
"There will be au extru heavy crop
of pears. Ol the newer varieties, the
Liuoiro liosc and L)u Comici wiJl bear
perhaps tbe heaviest yield known to
growers, but the D'Anjous will be a
light crop. Winter NollieH, LSartletts
aud other common varieties, are the
llnest crop we have ever known. Tbe
trees are not heavy laden, but the
uunlity and size of the fruit is unex
oelled. "Prunes will be a nood crop much
above Ihe average. The tiees are well
loaded aud the fruit Is ot Hue size aud
"Peaches are a very light crop,
Mule's Karly, Early Alexanders and
other oxtra early varieties will be fair
ly good yield, but Crawfords, Muirt
ami other staple varieties will not pro-
duo over olio-fourth of au average
"Among apple varieties. Newtowns
will be u good crop, but Hpitzenbergs,
lieu Davis and practically all othei
varieties will be a vory light crop.
The apples shipped from Southern
Oregou orchards this Fall' will be
nearly all Newtowns.
"The berry ctop bas been good,
but tbe seaBou was short, owing to
the extremly hot weather of week be
fore last. I'he hay crop Is the heavi
est ever knowu in tho valley, but as
much what was out tor hay, the grain

"Have you heard about our artes

Irrigated or Non-Irrigated Fruit.
Kdltor R. J. Wickson, of the Pa
cillo liural Press, has recently sent
out a number of querioa to leading
trull growers in the Pacillo oouil
states relative to irrlgatiuu foi size,
quality, y it'll aud commercial sulta
liility of fruits. A summary of the
replies from tho Pacillo Northwest In
dicate, that where the grower Irrl
gales he considers the product super
lor, and where there is no irrigation
Unit the fruit may be considered at
good with better keeping quality, evi
dence ot prejudice lu favor of what
method is under practice.
As fruit growers aie learning to use
water judiciously, aveiage crops show
better lesults with than without arti
llciul watering. Italian primes of the
poorest keeping quality ever shipped
to the St. Paul market came from an
over irrigated orchard, while the
same variety of prune grown ou uuii
inigated upland soil has been shipped
to Kngland, arriving in good condi
tion ami sold at nrotltable prices.
The poor keeping duality ot the
prune from the irrigated orchard was
no cloul t due to over-watering, for
Italian prunes with good keepitig
quality have been grown iu irrigated
orchards where a pioper application
of water lias been made.
J I is too frequently the case in hu
mid sections that a "too dry" fall will
cause weak fruit buds for next season,
while the Irrigator giving sutllcieiil
mi Uture in mid-sumniei can avoid
that ditllculty. Too many of the
"rain-depeiiding" orchards are nut
properly cultivated, or else the mulch
crop is insiitllient or is removed,
leaving the trees with too litt e nour
ishment. It makes lillle dillerence to a tree
wl. ether imi'sture comes ftom one
source or the other, only so the
ground is damp enough for the action
of plant-food making bacteria, while
on the other hand not so wet that the
trees must perform merely the fuuo
tiiou of wind mill pumps.
