to a summer residence near his birth
plaee at 50, and blgan to lo things.
His house is a modest dwelling on a
side lane loading off Main street. His
orchards are several miles beyond, over
new bridges and roads which make their
way up four bills f JMKl-foot elevation.
When Mr. Dascomb first looked over
the bills he saw nothing to recommend
the spot but the view of the valley, ac
cording to native farmers. On ench
bill was a farm, but they were having
a hard time to hold on to the rocks, and
no neighbors were beyond. The best
land Wits only poor pasture.
Mr. Dascomb started with dynamite.
and he brought up the apple saplings
close behind the powder keg. From the
first planting the trees were laid out
under the surveyor's eye, as regular as
a checkerboard. Between the rows there
was enough space to drive a motor truck,
and the field was made smooth enough
to do this with comfort.
This summer the last of eight of the
1."0 acres were clenred. with V. II.
Vanderbilt of I'eabody in charge. Mr.
Vanderbilt used a ton of powder a week.
In one day he set off a half-ton of ex
plosives, stripped off the growth from
a half acre with a flash, and then for
the benelit of a crowd of men and wo
men, who came by automobile and on
horseback from the valley for the sicc
tacle. ran a 12(M foot ditch down the
field by the pressing of a button.

found on the tract he named Hillside,

took the old buildings with their pegged

His superintendent is ,T. "XV. Collins.
Mrs. Collins is listed on the payroll a
nu auditor. Stanley M. Fullam, the
foreman, is the grafting expert. Mrs.
Fullam assists him. With them is a
permanent staff of 30 others, all apple
men. who have no work except in con
nection with apples, equipment and
No Apples Allowed to Fall
The trees are watched like a patient
in a hospital and with each goes a card
n which its history is nted. The
life of the present orchard will probably
reach' years. The first tree was
planted in V.U'J.
Some of the trees have been attacked
by rodents, and Mr. Collins escorts visitor-:
first to one of the flourishing trees
of the orchard which was saved by a
delicate surgical operation known as
A ready this year Mr. Collins tins
sprayed the whole orchard five times,
and at the first appearance of a prst
tht spraying brigade is manned and
rushed to the swt.
The only cultivation is n small area
arouixl the trees which has been worked
with a hoe. and the only fertilizer is the
hav between the trees, which is cut and
spread and left to rot.
As soon as the. apples become nearly
rip a watch is set. No apple is allowed
to full from the tree if it can be caught.
When the seeds are black the apple rank
becomes a small-sized cantonment of ap
ple pickers. '
Vehicles are run down between apple
trees, and men, equipped with 'hooked
poles, reach up for the fruit and bring
each apple down individually without
bruising the skin. They are then carried
carefully to the sorting machines, where
they are classified, wrapped in paper,
placed in special cartons, and sent to
customers. The fruit is high grade and
the wrapper is nionogrammed.
For Those Who Do the Work
This summer Mr. Dascomb began a
storehouse for apples. It was planned
for lliHI, but. it was delaved. until after
the war. The storehouse, built according
to a new plan, will keep apples through
During the winter Mr. Dascomb leaves
his place in the hands of Mr. Collins
nnd Mr. Fullam and returns with Mrs.
Dascomh to Chicago. The men put in
the winter trimming and pruning trees
and caring for the stored apples.
Mr. Dascomb has made- a hardscrabble
farm into a showplace on the hillsides of
Vermont. He believes he can make it a
success. Tn Westminster they say he
turns everything lie handles into go!j. but
it will be some years before he will Im
able to make this proposition pay. Mrs.
Dascomb is as interested in the orchard
as be is.
When asked about the plans for the
orchard for it will be many years yet
before the slender bare trees get into
their prinn Mr. Dascomb said he
thought of his orchard only as a recrea
I am simply trying to build up this
orchard so that those who live and work
here may. own it themselves some day
lo these. men nnd women belong all the
credit for what you see here."
