From what I saw' in the Payette and Boise Valleys, I am certain that a good dead-air-space-building, with proper ventilation, and the use of good judgment in selecting varieties to store and with care in the opera tion of the vents, is all that is nec essary to make a success of Local Storage there. Among the many minor details to successful storage of fruit, which the experiment stations have worked out are the maturity of the apple for stor? '''hich seems to be about the time R uas attained about full color and yet has not begun to lose its firmness, and also a thorough as sortment of the perfect apples from those showing signs of disease. It has been determined that 31 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit as the proper temperatures for holding stored ap ples with the greatest degree of suc cess. Apples should be taken, as soon after picking as possible, into the storage and not be allowed to remain in the sun for they ripen much faster after being picked than on the trees. By the establishment of sufficient local storage plants in the principal fruit growing centers, the grower will be enabled to raise and market his fruit in better season, with a smaller amount of help, with less exposure to the weather, and place his fruit upon the market at such a time as there is the gr -atest demand for respective varieties, and he will receive thereby the largest price for his product i\ith the smallest amount of expens for raisi: I fully believe one of the ential fea opm nt of the fruit industry building of in th - :i i Northwest mend them :1 marketing And it. ures in the devel mosi th •e plants s of the St O' illy recom a consid orab y era i : Respeo lly submitted, ROY C.
