ORCHARD 8PRAYINQ. Fifty to one hundred years ago or chards, large or small, were planted without a thought as to whether they should be sprayed for coddling moth or fungus diseases. But little had been heard about such difficulties. The country was comparatively new. Or chards were planted on virgin soil filled with plant foods. Trees grew with health and vigor. The chief con sidération at that time was the ques tion of varieties, transportation and markets. The rapjd expansion of our present system of transportation en ables our orchardists to select the bet ter markets and to send his fruits to them. Coincident with this increas ed freedom of transportation and in terchange of products, fungus diseases have been Introduced and Insect ene mies have multiplied to such an extent that the successful orchardlst must onw give his work scintille study and onw give his work scintille study and udiclous care. This is the genesis of the movement |f° r the protection of our fruit Interests * which has led to fruit Inspection and 4j$|apraylng under the pressing necessity of complying with the state laws. In this section the fight is directed prin cipally against the San Jose scale and lime,,sulphur and salt compound is lljwhAt is officially recommended. An Tjpther fruit pest is the coddling moth, ,|«nd when the new orchards for the JPf w,8ton valley uplands are in bear a l n 8T, and some of them are about ready PIP* orchardl8ts will have to fight the j'poddllng moth systematically.

It was opened, and a man was ad mitted ami stood in the presence of the celestial court Long raws of angels with furled wings sat ready to listen and to judge, while myriads of cheru bim and seraphim, with extended pin ions, circled above. Drifting from 11 did not appear where were low strains snug by a celestial choir. "Who comes?" called a voice. "A mortal man," replied the candi date. "I died an hour ago." "From what planet?" "Earth." "What part of earth?" "America." "What class?" "The upper class." "Large possessions?" "Immense possessions." These preliminary questions were asked by a young angel with a seraphic face. At this point he ceased to speak and led the candidate to the judge, whose brow wore an expresslpn of di vine thought, divine justice. The can didate noticed this, and It seemed to encourage him. "What have you to say In support of your demand for admittance Into our heavenly realms?" asked the judge. "The use I made of the possessions It pleased heaven to place In my keeping." "Heaven has placed no possessions In your keeping. You have been left free to acquire possessions or not, as you pleased. First state to the court how you became a multimillionaire." "I began as a common workman. 1 became president of a corporation. I saw an opportunity to unite many cor porations. That made me president of a trust." The angel opened a book before him and read: " 'Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.' Have you been merciful ?" "I have." "Did you unite all corporations, bene fiting all?" "I united those I needed to unite." "Those who by competition might threaten you?" 1 "Yes." "What became of the others?" "They went to the wall." "And the stockholders?" "Lost their possessions." "Do you call that being merciful?" The candidate was silent for a mo ment, then said, "Yes; I will prove It If you will permit." "Not yet Your trust being formed, how did you make money?" "By raising prices." "For the rich or for the poor?" "Both." "Did the poor suffer?" 1 ' "They did." "Your examination to over—for the present. You may state what you have to say In extenuation." "The poor are always poor and usu ally uiiable to help themselves. If they had an immense sum given them, they would use It all up without bene fiting themselves, for they have no talent for management. It is best that certain persons shall accumulate funds, then become distributers to the poor. I have been one of these accumulators and distributers. I have endowed col leges, built churches, established libra ries. I have not fed and clothed In dividuals directly, because such action would result In no permanent benefit to the masses of the poor. I have pre ferred rather to use my money"— "Whose money?" "Mlnei" "Did you not say that your fortune had been built up on the ruins of those Interested In and dependent upon cer tain corporations?" I did. Their ruin waa necessary that I should acquire the ability to put millions through channels to do the most good." "By what authority did you act?" "My own sense of what was fit." The judgé' sat silent for a moment. The strains had seemed to follow the heavenly inquiry, a solemn murmur like distant thunder when the candi date touched upon his evil courses, a sympathetic melody at the mention of his beneficent acts. Now they died away entirely. The Judge spoke: "Man has been placed on the earth to develop under certain conditions He has been left free In his environ ment, but without a few basic princl ; pies he would grope In darkness. These have been given him from heaven. So long as he works In accordance with these principles bis deeds are approved. Had heaven Issued an edict, 'Rob that you may benefit mankind,' possibly you might have obtained admittance here, but there Is no such edict. Your course was not even wise for the peo ple you profess to have benefited. Tbelr condition has degenerated. Tbe equivalent for the fruits of the earth, gold. Is now held In storehouses, dis tributed by a few. and the poor are paying enormous prices for their ne cessities. Yon have taken the law into your own hands. Yon have no place here." "It Is hard," said the candidate, "that I should have labored first to heap up wealth, but a tithe of which 1 could Hse myself, and lavished the rest on my fellow men, to be condensed by the high court of heaven. We have no such principles on earth. No earthly court would"— • "Did you respect your earthlv courts?" The candidate hung bis bead. He had bribed Ills earthly courts. But he was not easily put down. "Our earthly courts stood In the way of my designs for the ultimate benefit of the people." "And our heavenly court stands m the way of yoar entrance here. Take him a way " ALEXANDER FLY Teller ads bring results.
