which was beautiful and impressive.
The decorations were artistic and the
wedding luncheon perfect. An early

The on-time campaign which was be

possible to begin all services promptly
with nearly everybody in their place
before the services begin.

All fruit shipping stations and other
buildings that are now located in a

over toward the rivur. and the new
station yards will te commodious.
They will be beautified with flowers.
Two new apple warehouses are due
to arise at Underwood this season. The
UnderWOOd Prist and Warehouse Co.,
composed of a number'of growers, who
are organized tor concerted action in
handling their crops, will erect a new
shipping station. Dan Wuille & Co.
are planning a commodious new ware
house. The new steel bridge over the White
Salmon river is progressing. It will
be ready for traffic some time this
The Underwood fruit crop indicates
good returns. No peaches will be har
vested, however. While this crop was
formerly of considerable importance
when peach fillers were used in young
orchards, most of the peach trees had
been removed, and the loss from
peaches will be nominal. Cherry trees
are in full bloom. Canners have visit
ed the district the past week, offering
15 cents per pound for all cherries on
contracts. Berries look good, and
prospects are that a large percentage
of the berry crop will go to canners for
Pi cents per pound and better.
With two mills alrearly cutting more
than .00,000 feet daily, a lumber boom
is on in the Underwood district. A
new milling concern, owning large
timber holdings on the Little White
Salmon river, is conternplatiing the
construction of a mill at Hood. Op
lions have been taken on all available
property there, and indications are
that a large yard will be established.

-Wild i.'l. Iliflueiuw II,
grower whoa system of spacing seed

than two mini - or hen's i .
Halloo, iti Ohio, has shown that a
comparison of Die varieties, Hovel and
Carman No. .'!, a many eyed and few j
eyed varieties, respectively, that with,
a given size of seed piece, the risure !
eves preeenl the more atalke that lll I
develop through the radio of eye to
stalk increase is not proportional.
Whipple, of Montana, thinned stands
of potatoes planted to two ounces
pieces to one stalk per hill in order to i
test whether the marketable yield
might be thus increased. Such thin-!
ning improved the market shaiie and
uniformity, but the ret ults do not justi- :
fy any conclusion that either total or
marketable yield was increased. Sum- !
marizing, the best authority on this i
QOaation shows that while the number
of eyes increased, tin total yield in
creased while the per cent of market
able yield decreased. The difference in
marketable yield, was, however, not I
more than per cent in any ease. The
ame tests show that the yield is pro
portional to the number of stalks per
hill. Since other tests indicate con
elosively that yield is also proportional
to size of seed piece, nothing is gained
by cutting to a certain minimum num-
DOT of eyes.
It is udvisable to cut seed as closely
to planting as possible, a day or so at
most. Without dusting, the sooner the
seed is planted the better both for seed
and yield. There are a number of ma
terials which may be used to dust the
cut seed. They are land plaster, sul
phur, hydrated lime, air slacked lime,
road dust and ashes. Most growers '
prefer land plaster because it ia eh ap.

well attended and full of interest from

which made the time short, when the

that fact it was decided after the fifth
inning to make the game seven innings
because of the lateness of the hour. At

i anon, wnicn iney recently
four very important considerations with
reference to the handling of seed pota
toes. I his ih a year especially when a
knowledge of how to use high priced
seed and incidentally high priced land
anil lalior is essential. I he following
have been dealt with at some time by
various experiment stations in the
United States. They are:
I. Cargo versus small tubers for
2. Whole versus cut seed.
.'1. Large versus small Mad pieces.
4. The nubtner of eyes.
A great ileal ol contusion lias arisen
in interpreting tin; results of experi
ments bearing upon these points lie-
ause in many instances a verv imp'ir
taut related factor has not. received due
onsideratioti ; that is, the amount of
Heed per acre. To illustrate : In tests
comparing the influence on yield of
whole, half. Quarter and eighth tubers.
the results usually favor the whole tu
ber. The conclusion, therefore, was,
that the larger the seed piece planted,
the greater the yield is likely to be.
In reality, eight times as much seed
is used to the acre when whole seed is
Hied as where eighth tubers are plant
ed. II trrain were used instead of po
latoes the credit would be given to the
dillerence in the amount of seed plant
ed per unit of area and total yields.
Many experiments have, therefore, in
reality not shown that whole tuhera are
to be preferred lo eighth tubers, pro
vided the eighth tubers were planted
enough closer together in the row to
consume t tie same amount of seed as
would be used in case whole tubers
were planted.
Let us consider the first HTnt raised,
large versus small whole tubers for
seed. Here, obviously, the estimated
relative value ol large versus small tu
bers is probably the controlling factor,
in the mind of the grower. Extensive
experiments show thut the gross yield
is increased as the size of the tuber I:
increased. I his was also true of the
marketable yiel.1. In a few instain N,
owing In the increase in the number of
stalks per hill as the size of tuber in
. n ased, the mai l.vtable yield was not
greatest from the largest seed potatoes
It must lie concluded, however, that
large whole seed is better than small
whole hoed under equidistance of plant
ing only liecnuse of the greater weight
ol seed used.
The cost of labor and seed has an im
portant bearing upon the question of
whole versus cut seed, but no reliable
dat a is available.
I he high cost of seed favors cutting
at present. Most literal ore ileal with
a third consideration, thai of viclds.
Culling a seed tuber at once allocs a
loss of cell sap and permits the en
trance of producing soil fungi and bac
leria. un ineaoiiier hand there is a
distinct advantage in cutting. Whereas
whole tula-rs planted or germinated
above ground normally develop onlv
sprouts near the seed end, cutting such
tubers, both basal and end eyes may be
made to grow. The more ready en
trance of oxygen to the potato as a
result of cutting enhances gowth which
would otherwise remain dormant and
probably never function. This indicates
a more economical use of teed potatiK-s
than plant ii g them whole. Aii her and
Welch, of Idaho experiment station,
made a three vear test ot w hole and
.ut seed and while obtaining a greater
total yield from whole seed, the great
er markelanic yield in all cases was
from cut seed. These tests are not a
true criterion of relative valueof whole
versus cut sed as far more seed per
. - . M . . .
acre was useci in ine .ai , i in,- whole
seed. The best test of this qneathm
was made aj the New ork oxh riraent
station when equal weight of seed
pieces of whole and cut luU-rs was
used icr acre. Whereas about equal
total yield was obtained from the cut
and the whole seed. I he maiketable
yield from cut seed was nearly double
thst from whole seed. Anoarentlv
w ith equal rates of planting cut seed is
the more economical.

Keep Beesi
If you own an orchard you must have bees if
you would secure the largest crops of the most
perfect fruits, as proper pollination is essential
for best development and bees are the only
dependable pollenizing agents.

a mile they require but little attention and will often
render you a splendid profit. We can start you right

The Nash Six with Perfected
Valve-in-Head Motor
HTHE wide-spread and heavy demand which exists for the Nash Six
1 with Perfected Valve-in-Head Motor but reflects the quality of
its performance in owner service.
This big and steadily increasing demand is certain proof that this
car has more than met the expectations of its owners in practically
every community from coast to coast.
It has performed and is performing in a way that creates for it
hosts of admirers wherever it is in service. Because ot the high
character of this performance the Nash Six is now generally recog
nized to be a class leader to offer an unusually attractive value at
its price.
The thousands of Nash Sixes in use have demonstrated conclu
sively that they do possess the three qualities which owners appre
ciate most in a motor car. The Nash Six is unusually powerful
unusually economical and unusually comfortable to ride in and to
drive. Its Nash Perfected Valve-in-Head Motor is now generally
accepted as marking a distinct step forward in motor car engineering.
