MerifonV team in practice !elice
that tho victory triek will be turned.
Ashlnml has the advantage of more
seasoned veterans in the. lineup and
q wore experience in games this
year, having already played ahd dis
poned of GmuU Pass. The terrible
Ashlock, who bulled through Bed
ford's 1911 team, like a bull moose
bolting a convention, will be here lo
try the stunt again and in Ashland
the fans think there is nothing to
the game but the aftermath of cele
bration. On Modford'g bide it may be said
that (he hoys have put in faithful
practice, they have developed n de
fense that looks Kood, and are kick
ing the ball in fine form. The
coaches arc hoping that (he team will
piny as well when lined up against
pieu whose signals they do not know
as they do in practice with the sec
ond team. A, largecrowd of rooters
for each school will be in attendance
and, if Bedford wins, the first step
toward a trip north later in the year
will be made.
The official lineup has not been given
out, but piobably tho following will
represent Ashland: C. Dewiu C,
Dmvrt; I. g., CJarrot; 1. t., IIodgon; 1.

arousing public opinion forced the nomination of Wilson,
who was nominated without their assistance and in spite
of their opposition.
Wilson s defiance of Tammany was carried into tho
New York state convention, where ho defied Murphy, and
by his threat of opposing the ticket, forced the defeat of
Woodrow Wilson's career as governor is proof of his
independence of bosses. It shows what he will do with
them when president.
In repeatedly charging that Murphy, Taggart and Sul
livan nominated Wilson, and that he is boss controlled, Mr.
Roosevelt is uttering another of his marry. falsehoods. In
echoing his lies, the Bull Moose orators and newspapers
are attempting to falsity events recent in the public mind,
and deceive no one.
There are enougli issues in the campaign to discuss
without reiterating established falsehood and weaving
about a tangled skein of lies that deceive no one.

Water Core of Apple
THE BALKAN WAR.
lly 1 J, O'Onrn, Pathologist In Charge.
Tho occurrence of water coro In apples iins boon a matter of Interest
to rrult growers tu thU district, and since no oxntiuintloii of this peculiar
trouble has boon previously published by this office, the following article
Is written In order to aid tu tho proper handling of crops where some water
roro Is known, to exist.
.pKaranco of Water Core
Apples affected with water core have hard Watery arettH In tho flesh,
these areas extending outward from the outer edge of the seed cavities.
If an apple bo cut transversely about one-third tho distance from the
blossom cud, certain small giecu spots are noticed about halfway between
the seed cavity and the skin. These little spots are ton lu unrulier and
nro known as vascular bundle. Ily cutting transverse slices approaching
tho stem cud of the apple as well as tho blossom end, thuso bundles nro
seen to converge, and It will be noticed that they nro merely extensions of
tho threads or bundles which make up tho stein. It Is along thoo vas
etilur bundles 'that the transpiration stream or Water flow Is greatest, nnd
an apple just beginning to show water corn will show water soaked areas
around thefco bundles. Tho first appearance of water core Is, therefore,
In connection with thu vascular system, and may take placo near tho stem
or some distance farther on. Theso vascular bundles branch out in atl
directions from tho center very miiclt llko tho branches of a tree, and,
therefore, water-soaked spots may npenr at any placo In the apple, lu
severe cases the entire applu may bo water-soaked, tho seed cavity usually
contains liquid, and the hard Inner niombrauo of tho. carpels Is cracked
and covered with halr-llko growths,. The fruit has a somewhat sweetish
fermented flavor, and the watery parts contain mora sugar and less ucld
than tho uorinal or unaffected parts. Tho compounds formed nro similar
to tho products of alcoholic fermentation whorp ilr Is excluded.
MoM'itieitt of Water In n uve
With trees tu a healthy condition and maklng"uornial growth, tho up
ward sap or water movuuient U ery rapid, and under certain conditions a
very great pressure Is exerted on tho soft tissue. This pressure
Is termed "root pressure," and It has been shown by xporlmeit that iho
power of water absorption by tho roots Is often so great that It would sup
port a column of water SG foot or more In height, which Is equivalent to a
pressure of approximately :t pounds per square Inch. Under certain con
idtlons tho pressure may become even greater, especially where tho trans
piration stream lias Ueen temporarily checked. Tho rate of water move
ment In a plant may reach as high as 75 feet per hour upwards lit tho plant;
so that If a sudden check In tho stream takes place. Injury must result to
parts ot the plant which arc made up of delicate culls.
Conditions AffectliiK TrniiMplmtloH
Tho water taken I by the roots finds Its war upward through tho stem
to the leaves, fruits, etc. whore a constant diffusion Into tho-ulr takes placo.
Tho diffusion of water from tho leaf or other organs of u plnnt Into tho air
Is designated as "transpiration," and this takes placo through small open
ings commonly termed "breathing pores." Transpiration takes placo tin
der tho same physical laws as tho evaporation of water from n tuolst mem
brane, llaroraotrlc- pressure, light, temperature, humidity and movements
of tho air am tho most Important conditions affecting the process. A
plant may be compared In n rough way to a tube filled with water with an
expanded 'upper 4nd clowed by a mcmbrauaV whlld the' lower end Is tin
inorscd In' 'water? ny evaporation hto tipward-flowing stream Is 'set In
Under normal conditions for growth, etccsslvo pressures on tho doll-
cato tissues do not obtuln hecnuKo tho witter which has 'boon forced up
ward by rop pressure evaporated through t.li Ipjalhliig pores, Ijito u
surrounding nlmosiihot'o. WvapornUon can only ormu whiin th ntwOH
pherlo humidity Is less' than I Oh juji' vont, In other words, If thu ntiiion
phoro Is nt the point of saturation, no matter what the toinpnratiire,
evaporation cannot take place thioiigh tho lirenthlng porurt of n plant.
When )t occurs tho transpiration stroitpt Is ehedked, but tho root pres
sum does not stop, henco, If tlilt pressure becomes great enough, tho tis
sues leant nblo to withstand It must glvo way, lu tho apple, It has been
sooii that tho Injury Is first noticed In (do cells adjoining tho striuids wliloh
make. Up the Vascular system. Krults npprouohlng maturity, nnd which
nro milOontcd to conditions where transpiration Is rapid during thu dny and

generally those on tho south mid southwest sides of a vigorous (roe, nro
very liable to bo affected since they are subjected innro strongly to both
extremes. Trees having their foliage stripped from nun rnuso, ornUother,
or having been henvlly cut back shortly hefoio )ilrklug ttin; may also
show water coro lujnry. However, such trees as are ludiiw normal lu
vigor or nro growing whore soil moisture and warmth aro'ileflcliMit will

THE struggle between the Balkan states and Turkey,
precipitated by the invasion and initial victory of the
Montenegrins, will be watched with interest by Amer
icans, whose sympathy is universally against the Turks.
The uprising against Turkey is a phase of the demo
cratic movement that is sweeping the world, that made
China a republic, swept away the monarchy in Portugal,
made the rank and file of Europe socialist, and given
impetus to progressive popular government in America.
The cause of the outbreak is the despotic government
exercised over Macedonia, Albania and other produces,
the religious intolerance and oppression culminating in
massacres that have saturated the land with Christian
blood and the constant inroads upon bordering lands,,
Centuries ago the Turks were among the most enlight
ened of people, leading in art and science, humane and
liberal. But reaction followed and for the past hundreds
oX years, the Turk has steadily retrogressed while the rest
of the world marched on. . ,
Permanent peace with the "Unspeakable" Turk is im
possible, lie would havo been driven back into Asia long
ago, were it not for the jealous rivalries of European pow
ers. His presence in unendurable. May success attend
Montenegro is the first of the Balkan states to declare
war. In climate, in resources, in topography it is similar
to southern Oregon.
Montenegro which was a part of ancient Illyria, is
about the size of Jackson county, though far inferior in
natural resources. It is mountainous, with fertile valleys,
fill of which aro highly cultivated. Tts population is about
a quarter of a million. It has no cities,, but many villages.
Medford is larger than its capital city. Agriculture is in a
rude state, though every part available is utilized, fruit
being among the productions. There are no manufactures.
The -Montenegrins are of the Serbian branch of the
Slavonic race find a liberty loving peopled Tlicy arc tall
of stature, and well proportioned, the women wlien young,
exceedingly beautiful. The houses aro of stone , with
thatched or shingled roofs.
