after getting away from the officer he ran
up Third avenue with the policeman

however, and landed in the armory. He
was fined $100.

The Wbrnary .Sfeettnz ot the Koi-k
lxlaal County Meeting in Moline
Topl s Ileet
The Rock Iiland County Horticultural
associa ion held its February meeting at
the roo ns of the Moline Business Men's
asfocia' ion Tuesday afternoon.
llirati Darling read the first paper of
the afternoon on "apples," and answered
to a veiy close series of questions on the
the sub.ect from the members of the as
sociation. Mr. Darling gave a short his
torical tketch of the apple, and said that
one greut cause of failure in this locality
ia the di aire to keeD the old orchards. If
we succeed in growing apples, we must
clean oat the old orchards and set new
ones. These trees grow rapidly and fruit
in a very few years. The question nat
urally atises: What assurance have we
that apples can be successfully grown, if
new. orchards are planted?
We tnow we have raised apples in
abundance, and ot as good quality as any
that hav i ever been shipped here. Our
climate Las not materially changed; our
soil has not deteriorated to any great ex
tent. N hat, if any, are the causes that
are at work now to prevent that did not
One cause of failure in this part ot the
state is a selection of varieties to plant.
Another cause of failure is an imperfect
knowledge of cultivation, and still an
other the it judicious use of the pruningi
knife. Theee causes of failure are men
tioned, but there are others too numeroas
tomenticn. While it u admitted thet
our locality is not eo favorable for grow
ing the apple as many others, I do not
think thire is sufficient evidence that
there are insurmountable obstacles to
succjfcs in growing apples even here.
Mr. Darling's paper was followed by a
discussion, after which C. C. Stone read
a paper oa "Raspberry Culture."
Raspberries are easily grown, either
for the ga-den or field. Mark the ground
with a con-marker three and one-half
feet apart in rows. The soil should be
rich and v eil cultivated in order to insure
the best results. There is no fruit
that will tear among weeds and in hard
baked, poorly cultivated ground. Rasp
berries, loth red and black, are not
coaxed by cold, wet land. Select good
natural dr iinea or lue-drainedlacd; when
black raspberries tret one foot to 14 inches
lone nip to top with thumb and forefinger.
and am sure you will have a fine stocky
bush the coming season. I would advise
no more pruning until the following
spring. After there is nodanger ot frost,
prune latt rals from 10 to 12 inchees in
length the first year, and 12 to 15 there
after. Nip at 30 inches years following,
and they will need no staking. Leave
three to five healthy canes in a Mil. ac
cording to richness ot land and health of
Another discussion followed, after
which the programme for the next meet
ing, to be held the first Tuesday in March,
was announced as follows:
