ONION GROWING The onion thrives best in a cool, moist soil which is easily kept in a mellow condition. Such soils are confined mostely to river bottoms, and they contain more vegetable matter and sand than is commonly found in mesa and upland soils. Large amonuts of decayed vegetable mat ter seem to be essential to the best development of this crop. Heavy soils are not suitable for onion growing for the reason that it is difficult to make a good seed bed. j and the surface is likely to bake and j crack, much to the Injury of the young plants. It is difficult to get a uniform growth of onions on such soils, consequently a large per cent of scullions usually result. The land for onions should be heavily fertilized with well-rotted stable manure, and plowed in the fall or very early in the spring; it is ihen put in the very best condition possible for planting. The onion seed should be sown early, much of it being planted in March, and all Bhould be in the ground by the 10th of April. Early seeding is necessary, for the reason that the bulbs should make most of rbeir growth before hot weather comes on. The seed is sown about one inch deep with hand drills, using from 3% to 4 pounds per acre. The distance between the rows depends upon the system of irrigation to be j followed. If the field is to be flooded. I the rows are usually made 12 ito 14 inches apart, but if the narrow gys | tern is adopted, the ground is plowed ( out In ridge* about 30 inches apart and then fattened to about 9 inches on top Two rows. 3 inches apart, are then placed on each ridge, the furrows between th * double rows i being used for irrigation and culti vation Most growers try to plant the seed so that the plants wiy be I*4 inches apart, so as Vo avoid thln , *Sng. Cultivation and weeding is begun . by hand soon as the plants appear above the gr< uud. The hand wheel j hoe Is used, but the thinning and some of the weeding must be done by hand. If good onion soil has been selected but little Irrigation will be needed in 1 the fore part of hhe season In the 1 heavier soils, where the water is run in furrows between double rows, the Irrigation is begun earlier, and every \ effort is exerted to keep the ground * moist. EXPOSITION AT DENVER Extensive and elaborate prepaja- - tiers have been under way since last fall, for holding ;he second annual Colorado Inter-State Fair aud Expo sition. which will take place on the permanent grounds of the institution at Overland Park, Denver, the coming September 12 to IS inclusive. Mr. Q. C. Fuller, the secretary of the Exposi tion. advises there will be liberal prizes offered for exhibits of the pro duct of every industry, for the pur |H)se or encouraging their growth, de velopment and improvement, and that the fair of this year promises to equal if not eclipse the most successful of similar exhibitions held throughout the middle and easti rn states. The pre- : mium list will be ready for distribu- ■ tlcn the latter part of May. and copies , of same may be had by addressing Mr. Fuller at Denver. Exhibitions of this character, wher ever held, reach and benefit every av enue of industrial life, and are insti tutions to be fostered and encouraged. That they are accomplishing a great deal of good in an educational way. ns well as interesting investors In Colorado propositions, and attracting immigration to the state, will be ap preciated by a visit to any of them; a registry kept at one of the exhibits at the Denver fair last year showing visitors from every state In the Union, : except six. and from nearly every for | eign country.

Lower rates to California than for several years past have been announc ed by the Denver and Rio Grande and from the preliminary notices it is evi dent that more liberal concessions are to be granted by the rairoads to the traveling public during the coming season than for many years. A flat rate of $45 for the round trip to all points in California has been announced and a complete circuit of the Pacific coast may be made for an additional payment of sls. the lat ter taking fh Los Angeles. San Fran cisco, Portland and Seattle. The excursion tickets will be on sale from May 6 to 13 and at various other times during the summer. It is also thought that a flat rate of $45 for the round trip will be made to Seattle for the Yukon exposition.

Hadden, in Bulletin No. 131, of the Colorado State Experiment Station, has given most conclusive evidence that many apple trees that have been heavily sprayed for years with arsenical poisons are in a sick and dying condition, or are already dead. This malady has been going under the names, “cellar rot“ and “root rot” without any well founded assignable cause. There have been several theo ries as to the possible cause, such as seepage, aikali. and desease organ isms. The first two of these troubles are probably one and the same, name ly, too mnch water in the soil, and no one has been able to assign the trou ble to a definite micro-organism. It should be remembered also that Dr. Hadden's experiments have notning to do with trees that died from drown ing: and the writer knows, personally hat many, at least of the samples of tree-i analyzed were from land where s°epage conditions were absolutely unknown. D.-ctor Hadden s discovery of the real cause of this trouble has come, we believe, in time to prevent very extensive losses from the death of orchard trees in this summer. It will be folly, how-ever. for anyone here after to spray his orchard with ar senical preparations more times or in greater in strength than is abso lutely necessary to get good results. Personally. I very much regret, as does Doctor Hadden, that arsenical t praying is resulting disastrously to any of our orchard trees: but is is worse than useless to evade facts, and I am thoroughly convinced that Doctor Hadden has beon very con servative in his conclusions as to the extent of damage tha* has already beer, done to apple and pear trees where excessive arsenical spraying has been carried on. Symptoms of Arsenical Poisoning. The symptoms, in a rather ad- i vanced stage of this disease, as de- j scribed by Doctor Hadden and Mr. j Whipple, are about as follows: Trees; usually stunted in growth; bark very yellow; hark often dead and black just below the surface of the ground; the main roots in a similar condition; leaves yellow and maturing early; ap ples very abundant, but small and highly cok)rad; the bark of the trunk and main lines often with vertical cracks which may or may not give out an exudation. Trees strongly ex- i hibiting the above condition one year , are almost sure to be dead the next year. This trouble usually appears first upon a few scattered trees, and from year to year seems to spread to others. In any orchard where a few trees are found in the above condition : the utmost caution is necessary In spraying with arsenical mixtures for j codling moth or other insect pests. j How to Spray Since coming to Colorado, more j than eighteen years ago. the writer | has steadily urged the fruit growers j of the state to depend chiefly upon a j thorough treatment or two just after ] the bloseoms fall, and has advised • not more than ’ one late treatment. While this has now become a very general rule among Colorado apple growers, there are still many who think If two or three sprayings are good, more will be better, and it is In the orchards that have been sprayed four of five times or more each season that the mischief has been dons. Now. Instead of recommending two or three applications for the codling moth. I am fully persuaded that It Is best to recommend one. or at most, tva If an orchard has a few trees that show the characteristic symptoms of poisoning, as given above, or If the trees have beeto heavily sprayed for several years. 1 woe Id reoomend one ■pray only jest as the blossoms are about alasty par Mat off. If tbs tress bass sot been smartest? sprayed, and If ter any reaasa tbsbrst ap SEVEN might be advisable to make a second application, from four weeks to thirty days later, which will be the time for the eggs of the first brood to be gin to hatch well. Arsenate of lead is by odds the best poison to use. as it is least soluable in water. We have been recommending from three to five pounds of the poison to each 100 gallons of water; but since Professor Melander has demonstrated that two pounds to 100 gallons are sufficient for the best results in Washington state, I believe it is ad visable to recommend two, or not more than three pounds, to each 100 gallons of spray, for Colorado. And no lime to the mixture. Some Precautions l’se a fine spray with good force i ISO to 200 pounds pressure), as a given quantity of spray material will go further in this way and give better results. The amount of material used can also be economized by spraying the upper portion of the trees from a tower, so as to direct the spray down wards into the calyx cups. Avoid spraying the trunks and largs limbs, so as to cause the liquid to run down and collect about the crown of the tree. If much of the spray does collect about the crown of the tree, or if the trees have received repeated heavy sprays in former years, it would be well to follow Doctor Head den’s advice to remove the poisoned dirt from about the crowns and re place it with fresh dirt from between the rows. Avoid using strong alkaline water for the spray tank, as it will dissolve some of the poison and increase the danger of arsenical poisoning. In orchards already suffering se verely from arsenical poisoning, it might be advisable to abandon the spray for a time and depend upon bands and the prompt destruction of all mormy fruit to keep the worms in check.
