From Colville News Bureau:
While there are very few statistics
upon which to base a comparison, it
is very safe to say that F. G. Carlisle,
owner of the Gem Fruit farm, located
in the "Bonnievale" district, about one
mile south of Kettle Falls, Washing
ton, has established a record for the
production of perfect Jonathan apples
on young trees.
A number of competent Judges who
have visited Mr. Carlisle's ranch this
hummer have been heard to re'iiark
that there was no better kept orjhard
in the northwest. Mr. Carlisle is tho
rough and painstaking to the highest
degree. He neglects nothing, and he
leaves nothing to chance. He .voiks
hard all the time, just as hard witn his
head as with his hands. He gathers in
formation by study, observation anil
experiment, and he has the ability to
put liis knowledge to practical use.
Kvery detail of the business receives
his personal attention. That it pay a to
do things right is demonstrated by the
Mr. Carlisle has just finished deliv
ering his crop of Jonathan apples to the
Fruit Growers' Union. His young or
chard is now in Its fifth year, and the
following record speaks for Itself:
Number of Jonuthan trees 5 ; ears
Number of boxes of extra fancy, 414.
Number of boxes of "C" grade, rive.
Number of boxes of culls, four.
When one comes to realize what these
figures mill, he will appreciate how
marvelous this record is. In the first
place tills shows an average of over
two and a half boxes to the tree. For
5-year-old trees this alone Is remark
able, but the astounding part of it is
that over 97 per cent of the total yield
was extra fancy! Tha best growers
in certain of the older districts say
that they are well pleased if they get
as high as 35 per cent extra fancy.
The number of boxes of the different
sixes is given below:
Seventy-two apples to the box--one
Eighty-eight apples to the box—ten
Ninety-six apples to the box--nlne
One hundred and four apples to the
One hundred and thirteen apples to
the box—one hundred and seventy-one
One hundred and twenty-five ipples
to the box—one hundred and ten ooxes.
One hundred and thirty-eight apples
to the box—seven boxes.
One hundred and fifty apples 'o the
One hundred and sixty-three apples
to the box—six boxes.
All these apples were packed by
Manly Hughes under the strict rules of
the northwest fruit exchange, and
were subjected to a riuid inspection
both by Manager Dexter of the St'svens
County Fruit Growers' Union and by
Inspector Kosderka of the state de
partment of horticulture. Absolutely
no fault could be found by them.—
