Gives Farmers Some Good Advice
Into Fruit liaising-.
I think the present a good time to
give expression to a few thoughts on
orcharding and the first and a very im
portant matter to consider is the tree
agent. Have nothing to do with him:
just tell him that you don't want his
trees, bid him goodbye and leave him
don't give him a chance to talk for if
you do he will convince you or will try
to make you believe that he is an
honest agent and the firm or nursery
man he represents is reliable. But
don't believe him. His statements are
not the truth. It is said that every
fish is either slippery or scaley: the
same is true in regard to tree agents.
When you are ready to set an orchard
send to any nersery man in Minnesota
for a catalogue and select such va
rieties of apples or plums as are rec
ommended to be hardy, prolific and
free from blight. Always get your
apple trees from a nursery in your own
State and you will stand abetter chance
to succeed. If you get apple trees
from an eastern state you will fail of
Minnesota nursery men are reliable.
Trees that are perfectly hardy and
prolific are so recommended and those
that are not hardy or are troubled with
blight it is so stated, so if a man sets
out an orchard of the latter varieties
and fails it is his own fault. Every
man ought to post himself in horticul
ture. The cost of horticultural litera
ture is small compared with the cost
of experience by the loss of setting out
a poor variety of trees. The apple tree
blight is a disease that should be
guarded against as much as possible.
It does not affect all kinds of trees but
those varieties that are affected should
be discarded. The Transcendent crab
is the most affected of any variety and
is so badly troubled with blight that
it ought to be stricken from the list
and not propagated. Nearly all the
trees of this variety in this section
have been killed by blight. This va
riety was condemned years ago by
nearly all of the leading horticultural
ists in Minnesota. The Tetofsky is
another variety that it is not safe to
plant and some others following close
after. There is but little if any danger
in planting the following varieties of
standard apples: At the head of the
list is the Duchess and Hibernal,
closely followed by Wealthy, Patten's
Greening and Rupka. There are a
few other varieties of which it would
be well to plant a few trees, but I
would not plant more than one or two
of any variety unless I knew them to
be perfectly hard\. Two-thirds of the
apple trees that have been planted in
Mille Lacs county south of Foreston
within the last ten years are dead.
Many of the trees were winter killed,
showing that they were not hardy
enough for this climate. Others were
killed the blight. Many trees that
have borne fruit for several years have
died from the effects of blight during
the past two years, causing men to be
come discouraged and they declare
that they will never plant another ap
ple tree. But whj should men be so
easily discouraged because of a little
failure in starting an orchard. Does a
farmer become discouraged and give
up farming because of a failure of a
crop or does he quit farming because
he has failed of a crop of one variety
of grain?
A few years ago farmers in the
southern part of Minnesota went wild
over the introduction of several va
rieties of soft wheat, such as China Tea,
Rio Grand, Italian and Lost Nation.
Some of these varieties were badly
troubled with smut and were worth
less like the Transcendent crab apple
others rusted badly and the bran on all
of them was too thick for profitable
milling purposes. Many farmers met
with heavy losses but they did not quit
farming nor the raising of wheat but
they tried again and now they make a
success with the Fife wheat and its
first cousin the Blue Stem, so if at first
you don't succeed try, try again.
Recently an agent traveling through
Milo got bit. It was the lightning rod
man. He called on a man who had a
good lot of buildings and told him he
ought to have rods on them. He said
he was taking orders for putting cop
per rods on buildings for seventy cents
a foot but would put them on his build
ings for $6.00 and the farmer told him
to go ahead and put them on, where
upon the lightning rod shark filled out
a blank and asked the farmer to sign
his name but he refused to do it and
told the agent he might put on the
rods according to agreement but he
would not sign his name to anything.
The result was the agent destroyed the
order and passed on to the next.
Doubtless if the order had been signed
it would have proved to be a note of
perhaps $160. Let others take warn
ing and shun such sharks.
A Lost Children Kpisode.
It is said that hope springs eternal
in the human breast, but parental in
stinct and love and affection are not a
bit behind hope in this respect, for
there is no danger so great, no trial so
severe, nor affliction so sore and painful
that will brook the slightest abate
ment of this the greatest attribute of
human and dumb brute creation.
It is hard to conceive of a man devoid
of this parental affection to an extent
that he would leave two of his little
children out all night in a storm, and
knowing that they had became lost,
but according to reliable reports this
is what Marcus Brynulson who lives in
the town of Glendorado did last Thurs
day night. The parents sent their lit
tle girl six years of age and a little boy
four years of age after the cows about
dusk, and after the children had been
gone some time the cows came home
but the children were not with them.
The mother started to look for the
children at once and was joined by the
father when he had finished milking.
The neighbors were not notified and
after searching in vein until nearly
midnight the parents gave up the
search and went home, much against
the mother's wish. In the morning
they managed to tell some of the neigh
bors and soon a large searching party
started to look for the children, and
about ten o'clock in the forenoon they
were found not a great ways from the
house. There were no houses near and
the children remained out exposed to
the elements all night. When found
they were chilled through from expo
sure and were in a pitable condition.
The little boy had become tired and ex
austed and had fallen down and gone to
sleep. His sister had tried to shield
the little fellow as much as possible.
There is considerable feeling in the
neighborhood over the affair.
A Brilliant Scheme.
Some amusement and a good deal of
unfavorable comment has been caused
by the visit paid last Monday by a party
of State officials to the hospitals for the
insane at St. Peter. The party con
sisted of James Martin of the board of
control who acted as chaperon Gov
ernor VanSant taken along presumably
to lend an air of respectability and im
portance to the affair Labor Commis
sioner O'Donnell, Dairy Commissioner
McConnell, and the secretary of the
live stock sanitary board, Dr. S. H.
The real object of the visit is not
given out, but the public has been in
formed that it was for the purpose of
improving the minds of the departmen
tal officials named. It is not asserted
that they had any legitimate business
there, as that would entail proving that
the insane patients are working people,
milch cows or live stock, and even the
cheapest of politicians would hesitate
before adding any burden to the mis
fortue of the insane.
It is freely alleged, however, that
the visit is a part of a brilliant political
scheme, entirely original with the Jam
ison-Martin third term boomers, for
using the power of the board of control
for their own political purposes, and, if
successful, anyone who remembers the
influence wielded by the State institu
tions a ear or two ago when they and
their friends were fighting the board
of conti-ol bill in the legislature, will
realize that with good management
and some luck an exceedingly power
ful and dangerous political machine
might be constructed.
In the hands of unscrupulous and sel
fish politicians, such a machine would
be a menace and a danger to the State,
and would enable its maniplators to re
tain their hold on the public offices for
an indefinite period.Duluth Herald.

Th L,ast Kind Words.
A couple of months ago an old man
c*ne into this office and "stopped his
paper"said he had no use for it. Well,
we frequently meet him on the streets
since that time and it is amusing to us
to note the look of surprise on the old
man's face that we are still in existence
regardless of him having "stopped his
paper." Some day, and it won't be
long either, that poor old man will turn
up his toes. His old heart will be
stilled forever. Neighbors and friends
will follow his lifeless clay out to the
cemetery and lay him to rest among
the flowers. An obituary will appear

citizen he was,which lie the record

Wall Street and the West.
We are repeatedly assured by east

money to move its crops. Small thanks
to the east! The money which will
come west for crop moving is that of

Boys wanted to pick jack pine cones.
Bring them to F. S. Walker's grocery
and get fifty cents per bushel. The
cones must be the closed kind of this

Pick with a knife or by giving them a

and do not have more than three inches
of bark adhering to them.
