Saturday, AUGUST 15, 1908. THE DESEilET FARMER 15 fl
has been very favorable for the fruit
'to grow and develop, but it has also
I been very favorable icr all insects and
diseases affecting fruits to breed and
increase. Where orchard have been
neglected, the insects and diseases
arc now in full possession.
The deputy inspectors have done
their best to warn ana instruct people
what to do and how to do and have
worked little over half time making
a total of ninety-two and a half days
j work.
The reports filed shows tha 630 or
chards were visited this month, 178 vf
which had been cultivated and fifty
three sprayed the second, and some
the third time. It shows also that
where spraying and cultivation have
) been done the fruit is in excellent
i condition.
! Six hundred and thirty pear trees
I have been trimmed back on account
I of "pear blight; four hundred and ten
I trees- have been cut dowm; one hun-
I drcd' and seventy trees have been con-
I demned to be cut down; eighteen
1 hundred trees have been found affect-
I cd by new pear blight, and one hun
dred and fifteen notices to cut out the
blighted trees and clean up have been
I served.
I have visited in three of the dis
tricts and counseled with the deputies
about the most necessary work and
how best to carry t on to obtain the
best results. But the most of my
time has been gnven to inspection in
the nurseries. There is now in the
county, the smallest laising about ten
thousand trees and the largest about
half a million.
Where such large quantities of '
trees arc growing, it takes the utmost
care of both the proprietors and in
spector to sec that they ore kept
clean. But this must be said to the
great credit of our nurserymen, that
as their business has increased about
three o. four fold the last five or six
years, so have their diligence and zeal
to keep their stock clean and true to
name also to import the best and lat
est methods and machinery for plant
ing, spraying, cultivating and digging,
that the mairkcts afford.
The consequences arc that Utah
trees, especially Salt Lake County
raised trees, arc equal to the best of
California and Oregon trees, and far
ahead of any ranscd in the Eastern
States. This is. my report for July,
1908. . Respectfully,

The P. & O. Beet Cultivator require only one levr to raise or lowr H
the gangs. That makes it simple. A supplemental lever levels the ganga H
1 when one wheel sinks too deeply into the ground. Positively the best M
device ever put on a Beet Cultivator, and to be found on no other. The H
only cultivator that will plow at a uniform depth. Gangs arc held in the H
ground at two points, pressure springs giving an elastic movement to H
overcome unevenness of ground; more rigid than cultivators suspended H
from center alone. Wheels are pivoted, and under foot control, respond- H
ing to the slightest movement. All P. & O. Beet Tools have features not H
found on others. Our Beet Tool pamphlet explains them Write for it. H
All P. & O. goods are backed by an unqualified guarantee. Sixty-six H
years of "Knowing How" hammered into every one of them. H
