S. W. Boyd wdio has a fine farm on
Griffin creek, was in Jacksonville Satur
day. Mr. Boyd is a former Illinois farmer
who was allured to Lousiana by the great
profits in the rice imiustry, but a few
years contending against the malaria and
the insect pests in the Louisiana swamps
together with the frequent failure in the
rice crop convinced him that a rice plant
ation wa* not to his liking, lie sold out
and came to Oregon ten years ago buying
a fine tract of land oil Griffin creek.
After a careful investigation Mr. Boyd
decided that the fruit imiustry was much
the safest ami surest venture in this val
ley and last winter he planted 5K acres to
apple trees and this winter he will plant
12 acres to pears and three acres to apri-
Mr. Boyd’sapple land is a gravelly
loam, a wash from the adjacent hills,
ami having a great depth ami a dry sub
soil makes it an ideal location for an or
chard. The pear trees he will plant out
on lull land as he is confident that they
will grow on dryer land than apples as
their nxits grow down instead of spread-
ing as do apple tree roots. The apricots
being distinctively a dry land tree he
w ill plant them well up on the hill side
so as to insure their immunity from frost.
Mr. Boyd »pent some time in California
looking over that state with a view of
local ing lie fore coining to Oregon. As to
apricots he states that such apricot land
as is to la- hail on the hills adjacent to
Jacksonville, if in California would bring
$21 Ml per acre and every acre be put to ap-
cots. Mr. Boyd is of the opinion that
the time is not distant when the hills
about Jacksonville will be covered with
fruit trees instead of a tangle of fir, pine,
madrona and other forest trees.
