We need not, and we should not, form alliances with any nation in the world. Those who are right, those who hold their honor higher than their advantage, do not need alli ances.”—President Wilson, May 6, 1914. THE NATION’S BIRTHDAY. Our country will be one hundred and forty-four years old next Sunday. The day we celebrate as its birthday should be, in these distracted times, a day of thoughtful retrospect, of high and patri otic resolve. The first census was taken in 1790 when there were a little less than 4,000,000 people living in 17 sparsely set tled states, not including Indians. It is probable that when the original 13 states formed the Union in 1776 there were not more than 2,000,000 white people living therein Today we have 48 states and about 110,000,000 people. Our material advancement and our standards of living have kept pace with our increase in pop ulation. Our rise to the first place among the nations of the earth has been nothing less than marvelous. Orderly government and Industry have made this possible Without these our progress would have been slow, and without these our fall will be as rapid as has been our rise. Orderly government must not yield to the clamor of discontent. The walking delegate must not stifle Indus try. Unless we misinterpret the omens, the time is not far distant when the pa triotism of American patriots is to be tested as was that of the patriots of 1776. WTe have no fear of the result. The ster ling innate patriotism of America still animates American hearts. Revolution ary doctrines and fanatical madness can not destroy orderly government, neither can selfishness and demagogism throttle industry. It is fitting that we joyously celebrate the anniversary of the Nation’s birth, but we should never forget that a Republic cannot long exist without the support of an intensely patriotic people. A SHORT PILORIMACifc On Tuesday, June 15, we left Belfast with a large party of men interested in orcharding, to visit some of the up-to date orchards in West Winterport. The sun dispersed the clouds which in the morning portended showers. The fresh ness of spring was in the air and the varied tints of a new verdure was on forest and held, and the day proved to be one of those Maine June days than which none on earth are more delightful. The roads were much better than we expected and the ride over the excellent road whirl: wT.ds between the west shores of Swan Lake and mantling cliffs rising abrup.iy, is an enjoyment well worth a full day’s journey, to a lover of the beau tiful and picturesque. Our first stop was at the farm of Mr. C. C. Clement, which is about 150 acres in extent. Although giving much of his attention to general farming, Mr. Clement ppecializes in or charding, and has one orchard of five acres of which he is justly proud and from which he sold, last year, 500 bar rels of choice fruit, yielding about 42,500. In this orchard an exhibition of spraying was given. The spraying apparatus con sists of a tank with a motor attachmen which stirs the spray solution in the tank and develops the pressure which forces the liquid through two spraying nozzles, each being attached to a length of rubber hose about an inch in diameter. The sprayer is mounted on four wagon wheels and is drawn r y two horses. In passing between two rows of apple trees, one row is sprayed from the right hand nozzle and the other from the left, with a fine, fan like shower spray which, at the will of the operators, may be wide or narrow as the occasion requires. Four sprayings are needed. The first, when the leaf buds are as near open as possible without show ing the leaves; the second, whe i the bloom buds begin to show pink; the third, immediately after the petals have fallen, and this should be followed two weeks later by another spray. When there is an infestation of brown tail moths there should be a fifth spraying when the eggs are hatching. Full information on spray ing can be had by writing to Experiment Station, Orono, Me. After a picnic dinner supplemented by coffee from Mr. Clement’s kitchen, the party visited the farm of Mr. A. L. Blais dell, where there are 100 acres devoted to orcharding, and we were informed that about 10,000 apple trees were growing on these acres. This is probably the largest orchard in rsew England. Mr. Blaisdell is a well informed enthusiast in his work, a cordial entertainer and gave his guests much valuable information. He special izes on the following varieties of apples: Wolf River, McIntosh Red, Stark and Ben Davis. In his orchards we saw a tractor at work, which, during the sum mer, is used much of the time in plowing and harrowing between the rows of trees The party then visited the orchard of Mr, George H. York, but the writer and three companions made a wrong turning and missed seeing his fine farm and excellent orchard, and hearing the instructive talks given by Agent Donahue and Prof. Sweet ser, of the U. of M. Several who were there have spoken to us in complimentary terms of Mr. York’s method of care, pruning ana cuiuvauuu ui mo ucc», , which are in the prime of life and con- j dition. These three orchards by no means are all the good orchards in West Winter port and vicinity. Mr. Lewis West has I 5,000 trees, Hon. C. M. Conant has 1,500, j E. H. Clement has 1,000, and several 1 others whose names have not been men- . tinned to us have a goodly number. The orchardists of West Winterport and vi cinity have formed a corporation known as the Winterport Fruit Growers’ Asso ciation and are adopting the best method of orcharding in all its details, including the standardization and careful grading i of their truit, which has already estab lished a reputation and secured ready sales and good prices in several of the largest cities in the eastern part of the United States. The intelligence, patience and accomplishments of man are wonder ful in almost every life work into wh:ch Nature leads him with impelling hand. This was forcibly impressed upon us as we looked upon these orch rds. But man has his limitations. After he has planted, grafted, cared for and protected the tree, and cultivated and enriched the soil, he can do no more. It is Nature's forces, her voiceless workers, whose line, uner ring discrimination selects the materials from the soil, carries them up the tree j trunks and out through tortuous branches in narrow roads, forms the first swelling buds, frames the leaves and clothes them with garments woven in the sunlight, paints the bloom with richest pink and purest white, develops and feeds the ap ples till, in their Autumn ripeness, they load the branches with a fruitage, true to type, whether it be Wolf River, Stark, o any other. “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, 1 cannot attain unto it.”— I's. 139-6. , Uhilaren Cry FOR FLETCHER’S Lcasto R 1 A COMPLETE CORE OF IMESH0N Ob* Bos of "FRUIT-A-TIVES” or "Fruit Liver Tablet*” Brought Relief WILLIAM GALE SHEPHERD Old Chatham, Columbia Co., N.

FORD LIBERTY MOTORS WIN GOV ERNMENT CITATION. “Motors of Unusually Good Quality” Says Director of Air Service. A Certificate of Merit, together with a citation by the Director of Air Service, War Department, has just been received by the Ford Motor Company, Detroit. The letter announces that the “Chief of Ordnance also made similar recommenda tion and citation.” It reads: “This company produced 3950 complete Liberty-12 motors of unusually good quality. They also produced all cylinder forgings used by all plants in the manu facture of Liberty Motors, and they in vented and developed special machinery and processes for this purpose. This plant was 100 per cent on war work.” Besides the cylinder forgings, the Ford Company perfected and manufactured all , the cylinders and all the bearings used in i American made Liberty Motors. All war work handled by Henry Ford for the United States Government was ' done at actual cost. Why man— we made this « cigarette for you! « t .
