"WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 17. HMD.
THE WEST IS AGAINST WILSON.
The farther President Wilson gets
on his swing around the circle in
the furtherance of his plan to carry
the fight for the league of nations to
the people, the more apparent It be
comes that he Is out of touch with
the real sentiment of the nation. This
fact Is beginning to dawn upon him,
and It will not be surprising if, when
he returns to Washington, he will be
gin to negotiate for a compromise.
But he will be too late. The American
people want no compromise that will
place this country at the back and
call of the bankrupt nations of Eu
rope. It wants no entangling alli
ances. It wants the senate to heed
the warning of Washington, a warn
ning that is more to the point today
for Information regarding fruit j
trees that can bo successfully grown,
here, Senator George T Baldwin him'
prepared tho following article which
covers the entire Hold of fruit trees.
Senator Baldwin Is particularly
well fitted to glvo information on

siderable extent as far back as 1SS2.
"Buy your trees in tho early fall, I
as stocks aremoro complete. Heel
in your trees and select a well-,
drained spot whero the soil is mel-
low, and dig a trench deep enough
to cover the roots. Put in one layer
of trees, placing them so they will
not be erect but nt a decided angle.
Pack tho dirt firmly about tho roots,
then place the next layer. When
the trees are all 'heoled in, cover
the tops with boughs or bank tip thai
earth over them. Be sure there Is
no gnss or rubbish near to harbor
mice. Trees thus kept on hand
ready for planting as soon as the ,
frost is out of tho ground will bo
found well preserved and are more)
sure to grow than later spring plant
