World's Fruit Basket.
H?elZiods aazt? Profits ixi
Orchards cf the ZScrthxvest.
Writing in Collier"?, or. "The
World's Fruit Basket," Richard Floyd
Jolies tells of the growth and romance
of fruit farming iu the "West. Mr.
Jones says that "though Marcus Whit
man had driven his gospel wagon into
Oregon at the time Fremont sec out
to blaze thc continental trail that re
sulted in the conquest of California
in 1S4G, the real acquisition of our
Pacific Coast carne when' the Luelling
brothers, with patriotic heroism, car
ried their apyH? trees in Oregon in
1S47, and the Argonauts trailed their
picks and puas over the continent's
rocky spine in the memorable year of
'49." The Luelllngs were sons^of a
Welsh Quun.er planter and slavehold
er in the Carolinas, who through
force cf conviction moved his family
and negroes to Indiana, where he lib
erated his slaves and hired their labor
for fi.ced wages. The sons became in
terested in fruit nurseries and drifted
across the three "I" States, leaving
orchards behind them in Indiana, mi
nc is and Iowa, finally reaching Ore
gon and the Willamette Valle}'. Mr.
The advocates o' a separate Pacific
republic, who were won over on grounds
of rational sentiment by Starr King
and his lieutenants, were bound to
the Eastern States by strong ribbons
of steel in thc early days of Grant's
administration. And in 1SS3 the rail
road to Portland went through, and
soon followed the Northern Pacific to
Tacoma. This opened the market.
Before this time Florida was our or
ange State, and oranges were a lux
ury. Californi? soon delivered an
abundance, and oranges became a,
common, though not 'an inexpensive
fruit. Before this time Michigan and
Wisconsin were regarded as good ap
ple-States in the Central West, and
Nova Scotia and New York apples
were placed on the tables of the
''lite. The railroads soon put all
these apples in the pie pan.
The world got a good taste of Pa
cific fruit. The departments of Agri
culture and the Interior at Washing
ton sent special agents West to be es
corted by Mr. Smith over these won
derful budding fruit lands. Hood
River became the University of the
Apple, and vc its dean Germany,
France, Russia, Argentina. China and
Japan sent special students to be to
tored in the fine arts of apple grow
ing. Eastern produce merchants sent
buyers West. The Niagara orchard
ists were puzzled that a bushel box of
apples, hauled more than 3000 miles,
should, bring a better price than a
barrel of apples raised at home. The
large, luxurious, costly crated cher
ries from the Dalles of the Columbia
sold when the.basket cherries of the
East went to waste. The peaches and
plums and grapes that came out of
this wonderland induced many a
Michigan and Delaware grower to
correspond with land agents a conti
nent's width away. And California
gave us orange crops that were con
stant and abundant.
?f the chances for a poor man in
Washington and Oregon Mr. Jones
Success here, as even'where, de
pends upon th'e man, not upon his
money. The man who rents4 land
among the fruit fields is welcomed
and assisted the first year, and per
haps the second. Thc third he is to
erated, the fourth sees his credit fall,
and the fifth counts him as a failure.
Good, unbroken fruit land can be pur
ohased, according to location, from
$50 tc $100 an acre. This can be
bought for half cash and half credit.
If the man is poer he can clear it him
self, and five acres ought, in th?
rourse of si:: years, to return him
from $2000 to S3000 a year. If he
can acquire ten acres, so much the
' etter. From the first year he can
do better than $200 au acre with
strawberries and garden truck planted
between his trees. If one has money
enough to buy his land, pay for its
clearing and planting, a little con
stant and intelligently directed work
will accomplish great results. The
superintendent of schools at Dayton,
Wash., planted his savings in or
chards until he had 3 00 acres in per
fect, mature trees. He was not a hor
ticulturist, but his supervision of this
large orchard was his recreation. He
now nets annually over $?10,000. A
Tacoma society woman indulged her
self in a sixteen-acre orchard at El
lensburg. She soon found herself
harvesting more than 7500 boxes of
apples a year, which sell for about
$17,000. There are many in the Ya
kima and Hood River valleys that do
even better than this, but the average
will not run as high. If an orchard
is intelligently and skilfully handled
it ought to yield from S700 to $900
an acre, and if the earning falls be
low an average of $400 to the acre
there is probably something serious
The railroads that have brought
San Francisco nearer to New York
than Boston was to Philadelphia a
century ago have been the cementing
agents of our national life, says Mr.
Jones. The economic and political is
sues of Providence and Pittsburg are
those also of Seattle and Spokane.
We are a homogenous people. The
scenes along the Willamette in'Ore
gon and the shadowy St. Joe in Idaho
are strikingly like much o? Wisconsin
and Massachusetts, except that there
are the great backgrounds of lofty
pines and snowcapped mountains that
the East does not possess. So with
the people. They cannot escape the
impress of their environment. They
are less cultivated than the East, but
hotter educated. They have large
ness of conception, boldness of action,
lack of provincialism and a venture
some spirit. The writar adds:
The Pacific fruit growers are begin
ning to work collectively. Legislat
ures may make it a felony to ship a
wormy apple across the State line
who in New York or London is going
to prosecute? But the buyer of the
worm doesn't go back to that kind of
a bos again. Thc reputation of a
whole valley can bc killed through
the carelessness or trickery of one
dishonest shipper. The Kentucky slo
gan, "United we stand, divided we.
. fall," ls becoming a commercial con
viction in the West. An honest and
attractive package is the best agent
in any trade. It was this truth that
inspired the fruit growers of Wenat
chee, Missoula, the towns of the Ya
kima Valley, Hood River and others
to organize their fruit growers into
unions. The apples no longer went
'forth under the meaningless names
of Ben Brown or John Jones, but
with the guarantee of a great and
wealthy valley. No grower wan al
lowed to pack his own apples. The
associations did it. and did it with
conscientious care. "Find a bad ap
ple and we'll give you the car," was
their confident assertion. Eastern
tracers discovered that there was a
valley standard. It was no longer
necessary to send buyers West. They
could order the standard produces by
wire. Ben Brown and John Jones
discovered that the surest way to sell
their fruits at'the highest prices was
to standardizo and get the valley
stamp on their bo::. But the union
idea did not stop here. The associa
tions set cat to educate their mem
bers along the line of their occupa
tion. The unions make liberal use of
the telegraph-wires, and so make a
more intelligent distribution of wares
than an individual could do. They
.set out to discover new markets. They
married the orchard ist to the horti
cultural schools of the State agricul
tural colleges and made of a trade a
scientific profession. They taught
caution and conservation. They
showed thai, though apple trees may
live 150 years, and though their val
ley lands were richer than the Asiatic
province of Shansi that has been
farmed for forty centuries, the orig
inal orchards of the Luellings had
gone into decay through carelessness
and neglect even in the virgin rich
ness of the bank of the Willamette.
But the fruit growers' unions are do
ing most as ? school of applied ethics.
They erase jealousies and suspicion
and establish a trust and appreciation
of neighbors and a spirit of fraternal
ism and patriotism.
S SHE MANICURES AND BEAUTI- ?
3 FIES TOWNS. S
In the past few years the passion
for the "town beautiful" has become
a national ideal. City councils have
taken up the work, philanthropists
have contributed fortunes, and civic
associations have put their shoulders
to the wheel. That everyone knows;
but what scarcely anyone knows is
that the movement began in the brain
of a quiet, unassuming woman in
Springfield, Ohio, says Hampton's
Miss Jessie M. Good was an as
sistant in the Springfield library, and
had been for sixteen years. One day,
in an interval of her work, she hap
pened to pick up a magazine and read
therein cf hov/ the village of Stock
bridge, Mass., in order to attract sum
mer tourists, had formed a local im
provement society to clean the town.
That was her inspiration, as narrated
with ? wealth of interesting detail in
Hampton's. Clean the town! Why
should net all towns be clean? Why
were dusty streets, littered sidewalks,
disfiguring vacant lots, treeless high
wa3rs'and unsightly back yards neces
sar5r?.. Why should not every town
have*parks and public gardens?
Miss Good told her plan to the ed
itor of a floriculture magazine pub
lished in Springfield, and wrote an
article about it for him. The idea
spread, letters came in shoals, and
Miss Good and Mr. D. J. Thomas, the
editor, calling a convention of those
interested, formed the American
League of Civic Improvement. That
was in July, 190!. A year later, at
a meeting in Buffalo, X. Y., the
American Park and Outdoor Art As
sociation merged with the league un
der the title of the American Civic
Association, which now embraces
every State in the Union.
Miss Good, who was born in Johns
town, Pa., is still a resident of Spring
field, where she has built up a large
business in the sale of plants, ssed?
Probably every one has seen a
time when he wished he could admin
ister rebuke impersonally. The
Springfield Republican pictures an oc
casion when it was done.
The "grouchy" individual carno
from behind his paper and glared
savagely at the woman with the cry
ing baby. "Why can't you keep that
brat quiet?" he snarled. "What's
the matter with it. anyway?"
There was a dead silence in the car,
and then a pitilessly distinct voice
from nowhere in particular replied:
"He thinks your face is the moon,
and he's crying for it."
The surly one looked about with
a deathly stare. Every one was quak
ing with mirth, but preserved a sol
emn countenance except the man who
was smiling out of the window at the
other end of the car.
"There are advantages in being a
ventriloquist," he murmured softly
That's All lin Forgot.
The cab containing the absent
minded man and his family drew up
in front of the Grand C2ntral Depot.
There emerged the absent-minded
man, his wife, three children, a bird
cage, a dog on a leash, and innumer
able bundles and parcels. The ab
sent-minded man paid the driver,
gathered up the bundles, dropped
them and pressed his hand dramatic
ally to his fevered brow.
"There!" he exclaimed. "I just
knew I had forgotten something."
His wife carefully counted the chil
dren, saw that the dog and the bird
cage were intact, and took an inven
tory of the bundles. .
"We seam to be ail here," she re
marked. "I am sure we have every
thing. What do you think it is you

"Why, bless my soul!" cried the
absant-minded man. "Xcw that we

A Witty Red Man.
In "Travels in New England and
Kew York," President Dwight, of
Yale College, tells a good story of
Indian wit and friendship.
In the early days of Litchfield,
Conn., an Indian called at the tavern
and asked the landlady for food,
frankly stating that he had no money
with which to pay for it. She refused
him harshly, but a white man who
sat by noted the red man's half-fam

Seme years' after this occurrence,
the man who had paid for the In

he was made to work like a slave.
One day an Indian came to him, re
called to his mind che occurrence at
the. Litchfield tavern, and ended by
"I that Indian. Now my turn pay.
I see you home. Come with me."
And tho redskin guided the man
back to Litchfield.
A Remarkable Play.
During the Lower Lakes golf tour
nament at Grossepointe, Michigan,
says Collier's Weekly, Lieutenant
George N. Hayward, United States
Navy, made one of the most remark
able plays known to the game of golf.
On driving from the first tee he
sent the ball over the bunker, fully
one hundred and seventy-five yards.
It struck a screen on the second-floor
window of a vacant parsonage, and
went clear through the screen and
The lieutenant had a problem tc
face. He was followed to the house
by a large number of interested spec
tators. Forcing open a window, he
climbed into the parsonage.
He found the hall in a back room
up-stairs, and with a mighty stroke
tried to send it into a front room.
It struck above the door and clattered
about the room for a while. An
other stroke was more accurate, and
the ball went into the front room. A
third put it through a window. The
window had been raised to allow the
hall free egress, but the stroke sent I
it rather high, and the ball crashed |

Silage For Beef Cattle.
The only reason the silo has not
been used so largely upon the beef
cattle and general stock farm is be
cause beef men have not given it
thc trial that dairymen have. Those
who have used silage in the produc
tion of beef are universally in favor
of it. It proves a profitable addition
to a beef-feeding ration. Experi
ment station tests have presented re
sults which stand out prominently
in favor of silage for beef feeding.
The latest evidence from this
source comes from the Indiana sta
tion, where a series of practical
beef feeding experiments are being
Spraying to KUI Weeds.
Directions for making a spraying
solution that will kill weeds are
given as follows: Empty a hundred
pound sack of sulphate of iron into
a fifty-gallon barrel; fill to the chine
with water, and stir with a hoe for
a few minutes until dissolved.
Strain through several thicknesses of
cheesecloth tacked over manhole of
the spraying machine, producing a
real mist free from drops. Use about
fifty gallons to the acre, and spray on
a bright warm day or on a dark damp
day; it does not matter so long as
rain does not come within eighteen or
twenty hours. This spray will not
harm grain crops, and will kill wild
mustard and various other weeds.
Supplying the Soil With Plaut i'ood.
In fertilizing any crop the needs of
the soil upon which the crop is to be
grown are usually the leading consid
eration. A soil which had recently
been v/ell manured, or had a clover
sod plowed under, would likely be
pretty well provided with nitrogen,
and accordingly the mineral constit
uents would be the principal concern.
A heavy clay soil would not need the
potash that a san?y or muck soil
would require. The need for phos
phoric acid is more general. After
the soil, the needs of the crop may be
considered. For instance, a 200
bushel-to-the-acre crop of potatoes
will carry from the soil thirty-three
pounds of nitrogen, twenty pounds of
phosphoric acid and sixty-two pounds
of potash; a thirty bushel crop of
wheat, sixty-two pounds of nitrogen,
twenty pound: phosphoric acid and
twenty-six pounds of potash. For
use upon the same sort of soil, then,
the potato crop would call for a fer
tilizer richer in potash than would
wheat, if the store of plant food in
the soil is to be maintained. It
might be possible to omit the nitro
gen for the potatoes, since the latter
are usually closer to the clover sod or
manure or both in the rotation than
wheat.-Farmers' Home Journal.
1 Engines Fpi* Farm Power.
Some farms have steam boilers and
engines, but for. ordinary use they are
too expensive to buy and too compli
cated to run. If a person only needs
a five or ten horse power engine he
don't want to bother with a steam en
gine. It takes too long to get up
steam and too much attention when
running. What ho needs is a gasoline
The ?ewer patterns cf gasoline en
gines are practically automatic. You
ran start one after breakfast in the
morning and it will run steadily until
noon without attention. They start
fiuickly, jump right into full power
and run at less expense than any oth
er farm motor power except wind
mills, and these are unreliable, be
cause they arc subject to the whims
and fancies of the winds.
One mistake often made in buying
a farm gasoline engine is in getting
It too small. You need a little re
serve power. If you need two horse
power buy a four horse power en
gine. It don't cost any more to run
it to do two horse power worth of
work, then you have the extra power
wheu you need it. The cost of a size
larger is not a great deal when com
pared with the additional service it
will render.-The Epitomist.
Geese For Breeding.
. A goose farm should have a run
ning stream of pure water so situated
that the fields may be laid out on
both sides of the stream. The fields
should consist of good pasture with a
variety of grasses and cf sufficient
size to support a gander and three
geese with their growing goslings.
One gander and three geese to a
pen are often better than any other
number for breeding purposes. A
shed on the north side of the fieid
opening to the south is all the protec
tion the geese require except in the
extreme north. In the middle sec
tions of the United States geese sel
dom will use the shed except during
the laying and hatching seasons or
on extremely cold clays in winter. The
sheds consequently need not be very
large nor expensive. Eut the rcof
should be thoroughly waterproof and
the bottom provided with a foot or
more of straw.
Toulouse, Embden and Chinese- are
the three varieties usually raised.
The Chinese lay more eggs than the
others, but the birds are not so valu
able, consequently the large:- varieties
are likely to pay the best. Stock
birds do not require to be renewed
like other kind:; of poultry, as geese
are long-lived and the eggs are much
better for hatching after geese have
obtained full maturity. Ereeding
stock is at best from five to twelve
years of age. This is especially true
of geese. Sometimes ic is advisable
to renew ganders after six or seven
years. Geese eighteen and twenty
years of age have been known to lay
as well as ever, and their eggs to
hatch satisfactorily, but these of
course are exceptional cases.
The Emtden and Toulouse varieties
are large-framed birds, with, long,
deep bodies. They probably average
about fifteen pouuds in weight, but
the ganders often weigh as much aa
twenty pounds or more. The Brown
Chinese probably are the best looking
geese we have, but the breed is com
paratively small. This variety, how
ever, is considered one of the best
for crossing on the larger breeds for
Geese are very fond of their mates
and it is difficult to break up a mating
without removing the male bird en
tirely out of hearing. For this reason
it is advisable to attend to the mating
problem in the fall. If geese are
kept on grass alone they probably
will lay one setting of eggs and hatch
them out, but if given a grain ration,
in connection with the pasture two
or three settings may be expected.
Goose sheds should be provided with,
plenty of straw during the laying sea
son. They will then make their own
nests near the ground and the mois
ture problem will be taken care of
A Little Turkey Talk.
"After successfully raising turkeys
foi a number of years, I am able to
give a few practical and useful hints
on the subject which canxot fail to be
of great benefit to .the beginner, or
perhaps to the ones who have been
trying to raise turkeys, wita but poor
Turkeys, as we all know, are con
sidered more difficult to raise than
chickens, on account of their being
more sensi?ive .to the damp and cold
of spring, and for this reason many
do not try to raise them at all.
I find that if turkeys-*- are not
hatched before the first of May, it 1?
less trouble to care for them, and
they are more apt to live'
The common brown turkey is the
most profitable. I ance tried the
white species, but found them poor
layers, and not so hardy.
It pays best to start with a small
flock. Never keep over winter moro
than three hens and a gobbler. Right
here let me say, be sure to get your
gobbler and hens of different flocks
in starting, and if you have your own,
trade with some one', so that .the'y will
not be related to the hens.
Inbreeding is very frequently tho
cause of blindness. I have seen in
quiries in many farm papers as to j
the probable cause of blindness, and
experience has taught me that this
is the sole cause. 1
It is uiwise to set the old turkey; ;
the first time she gets broody, but
break h-jr up to lay more eggs, and
set a hen or two ia her place.
When a hen is set, never use more
than jight or ten eggs, ar.d even then
selejt a large hen.
Give her a warm place to sit, and
saturate the nest well with sulphur
to keep away vermin. Use sulphur
on the hen, also.
A hen that is to sit for four weeks
must be well fed and cared for.. Give
her plenty of fresh water and exer
cise, and a small ration of corn meal .
wet with milk once each day.
When a brood of little turkeys are
first hatched they are weakly, and
should not be taken from the nest
for at least twelve hours.
Warm, waterproof coops should be
provided for them. Larg dry-goods
boxes, such as can be bought for
about twenty-five cents, make excel
Turn these on their sides, with
blocks under the corners io keep them
off the ground. Nail strips of board
over every crack. The top of the box
forms the front of the coop. Nail
laths across the front so close to
gether that the little ones cannot
crawl through, and make a little door,
at one end, through which to feed
and water them.
I feed them on bread and milk for
a few days, and then give them corn,
meal wet with sweet milk, a pinch,
pf salt and some clean sand.
Dutch cheese is also good for a
change. They are very fond of it,
and it aids digestion. Give them
plenty O? water, but do not leave it
where they can tumble into it, as a
wetting is almost certain to be the
death of a little turkey.
When they are a few days old I
take a lath from the front of the
coop and let them run out, after the
dew is off. If the nights are chilly,
or the weather should be damp, cover
the coop well with c warm blanket.
The last year I raised turkeys I
learned something very helpful. I
put the coop under a large tree where
there was shade in the afternoon, and
found that the little "turks" never
left the shade, and did not run off
into the grass and weeds and get lost,
as they had formerly done. They
cannot endure the hot sun.
If you have hens with little chicks,
do not put the coops near the ones
where there are little turkeys, as a
hen with chicks will kill little tar
keys. A hen with turkeys will like
wise kill the chickens.
When the old turkey hens are set
later on, I take the same method with
them as with the hen mother and
brood, and take care to provide a
When little "turks" ara six to eight
weeks old they can be let out with,
their mothers a short time each day
if the weather is good, and by the
time they are half-grown they can get
their own living, by gleaning in tho
fields, and will make no more trouble.
T*he last year I raised turkeys I
lost but three and raised forty.-Mis?
