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
„ . _ . ...
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 |
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.
