EINE OCONEE APPLE ORCHARD,
_ t j
Dan li. Good is Proving What Can bo
Done in Apple Growing in Ocouee. ?
When one sees great, big. Hue ap- |
pies-flawless fruit that jus! makes,
one's mouth water one is apt to let
his I hough ts wander far off from bis
home country, and pictures in his j
mind Hie vision of great orchards in
some distant Slate. And he is apt to
bugin to ask himself tho question,
"Why is it that we can't raise apples
of tho first grade at home?"
Dait li. Good has been milking bis
answer lo that question for the past
His answer to the question is a
very simple one. and it is the correct
one: "Why is it that wy can't raise
throroughly llrst class apples in Oco
"Because we WON'T."
There you have it-briefly, but to
the .point We CAN'T boca imo wo
WON'T. Thal is a reason illl-SUfll
clont lo preclude the possibility of
raising good apples or anything
else for that mader but il isn't
a good reason by any means.
Wo can't do anything thal we
won't do. Not that il ls impossible
for us to do it. or that we are incom
petent to do lt. Rut. we often think
wo can't do the things that we really
just won't do. Then after a while we
find that we havo "won'ted" so long
that we are thoroughly convinced
that we can't.
But we didn't start, out to talk
about won'ts and can'ts. What we
have lo say is along tho opposite line
-WHAT CAN Bli DON li.
Last week Dun Good brought to
our olllce a basket of his Sta man
Wlncsaps-and if there was any
thing that ever gave tho lie to the
"can't raise perfect apples in Oco
nec" talk, those beauties did il. And
the ones he brought to The Courier
office were not "orphans" by any
means, nor were they members of a
small family. The Staman Winesap
family is quite prolific up Dan Good's
way. Mr. Wood has ?100 Staman fam
ilies - or trees-and they are pro
ducing big "families." If we carry
ont tho "family" simile wo will have
to record eacli of tho Winesap fam
ilies on the Good place having from
several hundred to maybe a thousand
"kids" this year, so wo will just drop
the family idea and call these won
derfully productive thiugs Just what
they are. i
Mr. Good's orchard contains some
thing over SOO trees - mostly Staman
Winona ps, but he has some other va
rieties, of course. His main crop is,
however, the Staman. and his orcahrd
is, as it was Intended to he. a Sta
man orchard. Front his 300 bearing
trees he has gathered and has now
housed for the winter one thousand
bushels of No. 1 fruit.
But Mr. Good doesn't sit Idly by
and simply watch his trees grow and
bear. If he did he would soon be Uko
a lol of other people we know. Ho
would be thoroughly convinced that
perfect No. 1 fruit could not bo
grown here. And it can't.any more
than lt cnn bo grown anywhere else
hy setting out trees and letting them
shift for themselves. They will shift
all right -nature provides for that
inn the shifting process is a back
ward or retrograde movement, begin
ning with blight in the tree proper,
then tree decay, then Imperfect fruit,
and finally dead troes and no fruit.
It is a real pleasure to look over
the Good orchard and see the smooth
Name "Bayer" on Genuine
Warning: Unless you soe tho name
"Bayer" on package or on tablets you
.ire not getting genuino Aspirin, pre
scribed by physicians for twenty-one
rears and proved safe by millions.
Take Aspirin only as told in thc
Hayer package for colds, headache,
neuralgia, rheumatism, earache,
toothache, lumbago and for pain.
Handy tin boxes of twelve Bayer Tab
lets of Aspirin cost few cents. Drug
gists also sell larger packagos. Aspi
rin Is tho trade mark of Bayer Manu
facture of Monoacotlcacidcstor of
trees, clean of limb and branch, per
fect In shape and free from blight
and scale and blemish.
These conditions didn't "Just, bap
hen"- they are tho result of hard
labor and constant vigilance. The
same insects and diseases lo which
all trees are subicct are lying around
and floating ill tho air. just lil<o they
are ovorywhoro, bul Mr. Good antici
pates them sprays to kill Hie larvae
and oilier things that most of us
don't know much about; and ho also
sprays to preven! blight in both tree
and fruit. In oilier words, ho makes
his orchard Iiis business, and be
looks after his business.
Tn? s are about like everything
else thal Hod pul hero for us. We
don't believe Ile put a singlo thing
hore for us to si. down and simply j
watch, Apple trees were created for
man's good, but Clod intended that
man should take care of them for
Him and make of them what ile in
tended them to be. It'sva wonderful
thing- this Idea of Hod Almighty
providing for the human race. His
intention was -and is-for tis to
keep busy, to do .something with the
materials Ile has placed at our com-j
maud. How far all of us fall short
in carrying OUl Hod's plan!
But there we have ?one off on an
other tangent, lt's a fearful thing
other tangent. What wo were talk
ing about, we believe, was apples
good apples-Dan Hood's apples
not. those he sent us, but the thou
sand bushels of fine one.-i that aro
carefully stored away for the market, j
111 the hunch he sent us there was;
one big. perfect fellow that weighed !
nineteen ounces, and all the others'
were big, line fellows-perfect beau
ties, pleasing to the eye and delight- j
ful to the tiiste.
A visit to Hie Hood orchard is well j
worth while, lt will prove a revela
tion lo the enrefu,! observer to see j
and try to take in the work that all j
lilts tree perfection represents.

I Pure, Rich Blood Will Keep
When impurities creep into your
blood the first symptoms; aro usu
ally a loss of appetite, followed by
a gradual lessening of energy, the
system becomes weaker day by
day, until you feel yourself on the
verge of a breakdown.
Nearly everybody needs a few
bottles of S. S. S., the great vege
table blood remedy, to cleanse out
all impurities about twice a year.
It is an excellent idea to take this
precaution to keep the system in a
vigorous condition so as to more
easily resist disease to which every
one ls subject. S. S. S. is without
an equal as a general tonic and sys
tem builder. It improves the appe
tite and gives new strength and vi
tality to both old and young.
