On September 10, the Waldo County Farm Bureau conducted an orchard tour of the several prominent orchards in the town of Winterport. The first farm visit ed was that of Charles C. Clements. It was at this orchard that most of the speaking took place. Professor H. P. SweeUer from the University ot Maine talked on the subject of low-headed trees and the advantage of the same. Mr. George A. Yeaton, Augusta, confined his remarks to pruning and repairing broken down trees. A. K. Gardner, crop special ist for the University of Maine, gave a practical talk on cultivation and pointed oht some of the interesting things in con nection with cultivation and fertilization in Mr. Clements’ orchard. The dusting outfit was then pressed into service. It was drawn by the Ford son tractor owned by the several Clem ents'. After a short demonstration in dusting, Mr. Frank Dudley, Augusta, gave a very interesting talk on that same topic. He pointed out the advantage of dusting over spraying. The party then adjourned to the lawn of Mr. Clements, where they partook of their luncheon. Coffee, sugar, and cream were furnished by the Farm Bureau. Directly after lunch a practical talk was given by Elmer H. Clements on the use of the Fordson tractor. He stated that their tractor had been used on three farms for a period of more thaii three years and apparently had shown very few effects from its use. The parly then made visits to the farms of A. L. Blaisdell, L. J. West, and George H. York. Each of the above conducted the visitors through their respective or chards. Mr. Blaisdell told the visitors in his pleasing and quite forceful manner how some odd twenty years ago he set tled on that same farm and started his orchard. He estimated that his apple crop this year will be worth $25,000. He stated that he cut hay on 250 acres of abandoned farms this year and that, if he had bought the hay at market price, the fruit from 16 of his McIntosh apple trees would have paid for the entire amount of hay. These 16 trees were grown on land containing no more than one-fifth of an acre. This point, alone, demonstrates that a tremendoi s amount of labor has been lost on some of our abandoned Maine farms. The object of the orchard tour was not to show any one particular method of growing an orchard; not to show if a high head was more desirable than a low headed iree; not to show that cultivation or fertilization was better than mulching. It was, however, conducted to show that an orchard properly handled should make profitable returns to its owner. This was well demonstrated in each of the four orchards visited, although neither one of the above mentioned handled their or chard in exactly the same manner. It was a day well spent an I many compli mentary remarks have been made to the County Ag,ent in regard to the work of the Farm Bureau and Extension Service in conducting tours of this nature. More than 200 men attended the meet ing. Most of them were intensely inter ested in orcharding. Had it nor been for the heavy shower in the forenoon, no doubt, many more would have been present. CARL WRIGHT PEAVEV After more than a year of failing health and an illness of some months in bed, Carl Wright Peavey passed peacefully away at his home in Monroe, Sunday, Aug. 21, at 5.25 p. m. He was born ill Swanville, April 11, 1879, the son of the late Wesley C. and Louise M. (Small) Pea vey, but has lived in Monroe the last 32 years, where he gained many friends.

Nothing in fact is cheap unless it serves a useful purpose. The means by which we sell everything so cheap ON SPRING STREET is the fact that we buy things cheap am. I buy for cash, save all discounts, turn over (goods for a limited sal s profit, do all the work ourselves, hence save money for you and I Ford cars are a good example of cheapness with utility, and they are becoming cheaper, but no matter how much or how fust the price or. new ones are reduced we can keep ahead in our reductions on used ones I Come on and see us and ask prices. We will prove it to you With last week’s (wheels) ad. was nearlv cleaned out of them, hut we have just a few left at your price. Come and buy them TIRES are very cheap. They are the new fresh stock, of good ones, and we sell them so cheap that we are now doing the leading tire business. (There’s a reason.) Come in and inquire the price on your size? Last week we sold wheels in Hancock County, Tires in Knox Coun j ty and all sorts of things in Waldo and this week we will increase our territory. If you need or want anything, no matter what, ask us about it and we will make a price for you which will save you money and we will buy anything at our price. W. L. West, on Spring Street.
