Hudson Mver district.
As might be expected, tho display
of fruit at these annual meetings has
been remarkable, but this year all
records seem to havo been broken. I
have not seen such an exhibition from
one State ns has been made here at
Rochester during tho past few days,
and the fruit Is of the highest quality
and most brilliantly colored, giving
evidence of skilful culture and spray
ing. It was announces that on the after
noon of January 18 a carload of
superior apples would khe sold at auc
tion. I saw these fruits In barrels
with the heads removed. The apples
appeared to be for the most part
Northern Spy apples nnd they pre
sented a tempting appearance.
T asked a prominent member what
price he thought these Spy apples
would bring nt this auction sale. My
expectation Is that none will he sold
nt leu than $10 a barrel, nnd that
possibly these apples may bring $15 a
barrel, and yet th'V are not claimed
to be fancy fruit. The only claim made
Is that they are strictly Now York
State grade A, but to tnnny peoplo
they would seem to be fan'y apples.

interests of farming nnd was told , thousands of varieties of npple, grape
-here that farmers would never get I or other fruits he may discard nil but
their Just desserts until they were j a dozen and finally all but three or
rnoro thoroughly organized. He was
in sympathy with the dairymen sup
plying New York and othor large
cities. He held that these dairymen
were not getting large profits from
the sale of their product. He said thu
war had made It plain that agriculture
Is one of the most Important In-
dustrlcs of the world and thcrcforo In
need of a powerful, harmonious as
socio tion. No one can afford to
antagonize the tiller of the soil. His
sympathies were with the man of the
farm, who begins work before daylight
and quits only at the approach of
darkness.
l'rof. Stuart called attention to the
great injury done to fruit trees by the
severe cold of last winter, which was
the most trying of all winters within
the memory of the oldest Inhabitant.
He said that tho Injury' to frultrees
has not yet been fully developed His
experience was that In the years to j
come fruit trees might show attacks
of fungus or other pests that were
brought about by tho weakened con
dition of the trees owing to the .
severity of the past winter.
A visitor from Michigan stated that
nearly all of the peach trees of the
great peach growing sections of Michi
gan wero destroyej last winter or
severely injured. A visitor from Ohio
announced that he could make much
tho same report for Ohio, where the
peach trees wero seriously InJurT
during tho winter of 1917-18. The
hardiness of varieties was thoroughly
tested last winter. In some sections I
of Canada the Fnnietle or Snow apple I
trees were seriously injured, some
thing heretofore almost unknown,
since It is a hardy variety.
For leaf curl he recommended the
fall spray of lime-sulphur, one to fif

caused tho spotted leaf and the early
fall of the leaves In -lato summer or
early autumn.
Incidentally l'rof. Hendricks referred
to tho new Halo pencil as a superior
wirlety. IIo said it was regrettable
that this peach and other promtslnc
new fruits t-hnuM not be thoroughly
four, which he may consider of bUfll
dent value to he hiuided out to promi
nent fruit growers In different parts
of the State for testing. This method
wils necessary owing to the fact that
a variety may succeed remarkablv
well In one locality and be n partial
failure In another locality. This Is
particularly true of the strawberry.
Luther Uurbank was facetiously
spoken of by one of tho platform men
as tho P. T. Harnuni -of horticulture.
Cherry tree planted iii spring

and yot in sumo respects Luther Hur
Irink may be called .1 pioneer and

be rememlieieil tli.ii only salaried men
like our leaders nt tile experiment sta
tion? i...n afford to do business without
profit. My opinion Is that the men
who have done so much lor this coun
try In producn new varieties have
reaped insufficient rewards and many
of them have died In poverty or with
out proper recognition, n, for Instance,
Jacob Moore, who cave Ins life in the
j.tirsult cf Improved varieties of fruits.
l'rof. Hendrirk. has found In his nu
ii'rrous experiments that If he comes
to the examination of the wood of a
new variety of trrnpo which Is exceed
ingly Ioiik Jointed, that Is a lone space
between the buds, this variety will
be prone to produce small clusters, and
annot bo of value, if on the other
hand, the new variety has exceed
ingly small spate between the buds
this also will produce small clusters
which are undesirable. He has found
that If the new candidate has reflex
stamens., that is, with stamens turned
aownward. this variety will not Im?
s-elf fertilizing nnd will not bear per
fect fruit If planted by itself, whereas
the varieties havinK uprlsht stamens
are inclined to produce varieties that
are perfect blooming. With straw
berries ho lias found that pistillate or
Imperfect blnssomlnK varieties tend to
produce their kind, whereas stamlnate
or perfect bloonunjr varieties tend
stronKty not to produce their kind
Ho says we do not deslro to inultlnlv

Seth J. T. Bush, formerly president,
declared that New York was the
greatest fruit producing state and that
It should lead the whole country In
progresslveness and efllclency In fruit
growing as well as In farming.
Every farmer should gt behind the
Dairymen's League If farmers wero
orgnnlzed they could fix a prico for
their products, whereas now others fix
the price which tho farmer must ac
cept. We welcome government aid,
but object to Knvernment Interfer
ences. We stand for efficiency In the
State and nation. This society should
use Its Influence to stabilize waijfs on
tho farm. Fruit growers pay too high
prices for apple barrels and other
packages. It may bo necessary for
fruit growers to cooperate and maffu
facturo barrels and other packages for
fruits.
Mr. Hogers claimed that western
New York was one of tho favored,
places where apples can be grown to
the best advantage and moro cconom.
Ically than In other sections. He said
that there had been but few apple
trees planted In western New York In
the last ten years, not enough to take
tho place of old orchards whose best
days are passed Our apple grading
law Is going to be helpful If enforced.
We do not now havo to watt tvinty

Into fruit beurlng as our fathers did,

able bearing In eight or ten years by
w-lieadlng and up-to-date pruning.
The time has now como for planting
moro orchards.
Prof. F. C. Stuart said that one re
sult of the severe winter of 1917-1S
might result in tho trees being at
tacked by fungus that otherwise would
not liato occurred, and by cankers of
various kinds and crown rot and root
rot. Prof. Hendricks says that much
attention Is being given to rontngious
plant diseases. Ho Is hopeful that
some time a valuable seedling apple
nnd a seedling p-ar will be produced.
A Michigan man said that the out
look for the applo growing. Industry
was good and that apples were

NEW GLOBE TOMATO.
The fruit of the New Globe tomato
Is solid, the llesh is linn, tho flavor
excellent and the -eeds are few. It
Is, therefoie. an excellent variety for
t-b'e use and Is particularly recom
mended for private Hardens.
The plants are very prolific, espe.
dally when a slnKlc stem Is trained
to upricht stakes. All shoots should
be cut out as fast as they appear. In
i any case do not permit more than
three stems to develop In each plant
The fruit Is deep ros" color nnd Is

STUPID NEW YORK STATE
FRUIT GROWERS.
I A school teacher having a reputa
tion for obtainlim e.vceptlonallv ncod
i results with her scholars said that
with some of her pupils it was Impos-
sitiie to obtain results until she
aroused their Ire.
The writer has tried most every
thing to nroiixe New York State fruit
Krowers, without result. The hendinf:
of this article is ulven In the hope, as
a last resort, that It may arouse the
Ire of State fruit Krowers to such an
extent that they will wake up and
take what beloiiKS to them, at least
keeping the other fellow from their
place ut Ihe table until they hnve
been served.
Recently in conversation with a uen
tlemau, a native of western New
York, who Is connected with one of the
larRest corporations: In the world, the
question was if-hed wh then- wete no

NW "'k I'll' lie u,, "Til,,;, ,,H

STATE FRUIT GROWERS
only buy Pacific coast apples here. I
prefer State apples even If I had to
pay more."
The retail frwit stores and stores
that sell fruits and vegetables do not
handle Sluto tipples, or very few of
them. The writer lias tried repeatedly
to buy them. Everywhere arc the
Western apples, shipped thousands.of
mlles, driving tho better flavored
homo apples out of the market. Cur
loads of these upples como In and tako
tho market from local growers.
When asked why they do not keep
New York npples tho dealers Invari
ably reily that they do not run suffl
cii'iitly even In size.
Barrels of .State npples con be had,
and even when purchased through the
State Bureau of Markets they do not
run sufficiently even to give satisfac
tion at least mine did .not.
If the apple growers of New York
will get togethtr and put up apples of
uniform size In boxes they can get as
good or better prices than tho West
erners. One of the organization could como
to New York, open a little place, ad
vertise and set the business moving,
beginning with the early apples In the
autumn and running through the sea
son. The dealers would handle them In
storage. If the stock was sulllclently
attractive.
A big business can be done. No
vthero on earth are so many indi
viduals able and willing to pay top
prices to get the best as in New York
city and State, otherwise the West
erners would seek a market nearer
ome.
Wake up, fruit growers of New
York, and claim your Inheritance.
IMPORTANCE OF PLANTING
GOOD TREES.
In tho spring of 1917 an orchard of
Lcherry trees was set out by the Neosho
rwir-J-erief, Company, and the pnoto
graph from which the illustration was
made was taken of the same trees In
October, 191S, showing the caliper to
bo two Inches. This Is the result of
planting good trees.
H. P. Gould of the United States De
partment of Agriculture says: "The
selection of trees suitable for planting
Is fundamental to tho success of the
orchard. To plant a poor tree Is to
start with a handicap that may con
tinue throughout tho life of the
orchard.
"The soctlon of the country from
which trees are obtained Is unlmpor-.
tant so long as the tress are well
grown, healthy nnd typical of the de
sired varieties. The growing of good
trees depends upon favorable condi
tions and proper management In the
nursery, und these factors aro not pe
culiar to any particular section. The
Inherent quolitles of a variety do not
change when the trees are grown in
different s-ections of the country. If
the variety Is hardy It will continue to
be so; If it Is susceptible to some dis
ease It is not made less so by growing
tho tree during Its nursery period In
some particular region."
OVERHANGING FRUIT.
In thi KiiKllfh courts u cas" has ro
ci'ntly len di'dik'ri In which the de
fi'iuiant hail picked applo from the
ovprhaiiRlnp brunches of his tii-lsli-bnr's
trocn nnd for his ripht to do so
relied on the Rvnoral custom of lop
ping overhanglnR branches.
Provided it was done in a reason
able way. at a proper season, the Judge
admitted the rlpht to lop trees In this
position, but stated that nevertheless
when the branches- were severed It
llil r t Rive the defendant any prop
erty rmht In them or in any fruit that
mlxht be on them The pioperty pre
Mously "real" became "personal" and
remained in the owner of the tree. A
man mlKht remove a nuisance, yet he
could not in Keneral appropriate the
materials union caused the nuisance
and convert them to his own use. The
efendant had converted the personal
property of the plaintiff to his own
use and for that wrotiR the plaintiff
wis entitled to damages nnd costs of
$50.
This is as tho law may be expected
to be applied also In the United
States.

CURTAILING FLOWERS CRITI
CISED. In tho September Issue of tho
Ladles Home Journal an article ap
peared by Bernard Baruch. Chairman
of the War Industrie Board, In which
ho suggested discontinuing the uae of
flowers, so the men employed In green
houses might be released to go out on
farms and ralso wheat for soldiers, or
go into factories and make shells, guns
and the like.
A flood of criticism waa made, not
only by florists but also by thoao en
gaged In othor occupations; perhaps
most from country people.
The first Idea was to pay no atten
tion to tho criticisms, but aa all re
strictions nra off and war work at an
end it Is interesting to note the points
made.
Tho general tone of the comments
suggested that of ail ion-oasentlal
businesses at all times, during war
.nd peace, one that could bo perma
nently dispensed with, so the thou
sands engaged In tho business might
l i rn their attention to some useful,
productive occupation, was the busi
