APRIL 9. 1920 NUMBER 15 Over The County i Juliaetta Record: C. C. Combs re turned Sunday from a trip to Lewis ton where he went to secure some lime and sulphur spray for spraying his orchard. He purchased a bar rel of the spray and will divide with some of his neighbors and says he can get plenty more if others want it. Mr. Combs says the indica tions are for a fine fruit crop with the exception of peaches, which ne says are practically all killed in Clarktson, and at least half the peach trees were killed by the ex treme' cold weather last winter. v*Even the rose bushes were killed to within a few inches of the ground However, cherries, he says, seem to j have escaped uninjured and j the indications are for a larger yield than last year unless they should be killed by frosts later. Other fruits will be plentiful. Fruit in this locality, according to examinations he has made of orch ards recently, show that there are excellent prospects for a good crop of most all kinds of fruit with the exception of peaches, and there will be quite a f€w of them. Of course there is some danger of late frosts, which may cut down the yield but the prospects at the present time are excellent. Cherries appear to be in fine condition and promise a much heavier yield than last year. The fruit crop here, Mr. Combs says, is fully as far advanced as that m Clarkston if not more so. Deary Press: The Potlatch Lum ber Company has contracted with to „ . _ . ... the Spokane Paper Co. to supply the latter with pulp wood from this vicinity, and to this end has estab- ! " Hshed headquarters in Deary with | 1 M. H. Malison in charge. White fir timber will be cut and shipped to Spokane in the* log. The company made a trial shipment of pulp wood to the Spokane concern some months ; ago and the wood proved so satis-i factory for the manufacture of | f paper that the contract was made., ! There js a large amount of white fir in this vicinity. It does not make first class lumber, hence has not heretofore had a market value. As pulp wood, however, it can be turn ed into the market. Practically all the pulp wood in the vicinity of Bovi 11 has been destroyed by forest fires, hence the establishment of headquarters here. The Potlatch Lumber company has rented the rooms over the Latah County State Bank, in one of which some office equipment has been in stalled for the convenience of men having charge of scaling and other work in this vicinity. F. A. Pen nington and Ed McGuire, in charge | of work here* will occupy the rooms. Mr. Malison's headquarters j will be there also.
