One of the lessons which will fin ally be drawn from the trying ex perience ol the jres?nt forest fire sea son, in the betief .of nffloialB of the U. S- Department of Agnoultore, is the need of wider organization among private owners of- timber to safeguard their holdings. ' It is pointed out that already In tbs Northwest,' both on tbe Pacific Coast and In Montana and Idaho, liuiberland ' owners shave formed themselves into associations which ers the .members n. an acreage basis and thus meet the cost of main taining a regular patrol and fire Bunting organization. Only by get ting together can private owaers usn ally assure themselves protection. f fire Is no rest eeter of boundary lines and the man who undertakes to keep it out of his own timber will want It kept out of bis neighbor's too. Wherever possible. tt Govern ment's loreet officers cooperate, with lbs force put in the field by the asso ciations, so that the employees of the Government and those of the private owners are bandied practically as a ui it In fighting the common enemy. This cooperation' is advantageous to both aides Protection of the Nat tonal Forests necessarily carries with it a goil deal of protection of adjoin ing or interior boldinga. If tbs prl vats owners ; would - everywhere shoulder their reasonable share of the burden, the public would gain both through more general forest" coneervationrand through relief from the necessity of paying for the pro tection ol private timber-In order to protect ita own.

It la evidently spreading In all directions front the neighborhood of New York City wberts it was first observed. On Long Island, Booth era Connecticut and Northern New Jersey it has proved so virulent that nearly all the chestnut trees are affected, aoo many of them bave already died. In Pennsylvania it Is quite abun dant throughout the eastern coun ties, but in the central and western portions of tbe state it Is stlliJ either laoking or but sparingly distributed. Like all other plant diseases it doubt less has its limitations and it is not likely tbat It will thrive In all sec tions where the ohestnut tree grows. It la not unlikely tbat It may have already nearly reached the limit of Its extension. However, that may be, It in well worth the attention of all who have chestnut trees or timber. A strong effort should l made to erre.-t the progress of the disease so soon as It appears. This is not specially dim cult; and now, before the leaves fall, is the time to do it When a tree is attacked and becomes infested the fungus rapidly spreads In tbe bark and glowing wood of twlirs and hranohes. It progresses so fast that these parts in larger or smaller patches Hie soon disorganized, killed and somewhat shrunken. The letivfs which depend npon the.ie parts for their water and food scpplV wither and ahrlvel, but do not fall. The-. twlga or branohrs with their at tached dead leavea are very plainly seen in contrast 'with the. natural ones and mark the presence of this particular disease. Of course, branch es may die from other causes partic ularly attacks of boring insects, and mechanical breakage, but the differ ence is aot difficult to deteot. If during the next sis weeks a careful examination is made 'for this disease, particularly west of the Sus quehanna, and in sections not yet known to be infested, it is probable tbat it can be arrested or even entire ly prevented. Affected limbs should be cut off weU below the dead wood and burned. Any trees, tbe trunks of which are diseased should be cut down and tbe bark and branches burned. Tbe wood could be used for any purpose desired; it will not spread tbe disease. While the State Forestry Depart ment is personally directing work of this kind It behooves every individ ual to exert himself immediately, and so-operata for lb common good. within tbaseotlona named complete control or destruction of this chest nnt diaesss -seem assured tf proper effort Is mads.

TO THE VOTERS OF PIKE COUNTY: As tbe candidate for re-eleotlon, to represent Pike County another term la tbe Legislature at Harriabnrg, It la my purpose in this, as well as in succeeding newspaper articles, to re fresh your memories ia what haa been accomplished for the county during the past four years and to set forth what I would advooate if I am attain elected, and, necessarily I shall explain or deny stories now being, or that limy bo, circulated, tbat seek to mislead the voter. I do not take a personal credit for all that has - been aroumpllslu d, neither do I admit that I was not in strumental, in a measure, to that sucoeas to which Pike Conn y bas attained. . . , I owe much to the many valuable suggestions made me by republicans and democrats, whoso advice I have adopted, if at all feasible, for I have not drawn the line of demarcation politically, but, rather, as the repre sentative of the whole peopleof Pike County irrespeoti vo of political affil iation, I have tried to do what- would bcMiefit tbe greater number and feel ing that if it was lu my power I should like to do something for eaoh particular township. This week I shall, devote to deny. iiiL- tbe story beit-g circulated, orig iu'it rig I know not by whom, that needs but a few facts, and then every fa;t mitnled man must dismiss it f r m iiis mind as far as, I am oon oerned aud that those who bave not heurd the story may be advised of its fallacy. . t . v.

Ao ciatlOD held at Wellsboro this week recommended that a bill be present ed to the . next Legislature -creating tba office. of County Superintendent of Highways. If some one qualified lo .suggest praotiral and economical methods of road buildiug could be elected to such an office it would probably lie of benefit to the County. Under the present system eanh town ship sets ii-dependently of tbs others sud roads are built or worked, after the fa hion in which it Is done, with no regard to system sr connection so as to iiiiike eventually a completed piece of good road. . Not that every taxpayer is not entitled to a good road for bis use but that those which accomodate the greatest number of people should first be mads per ma nently good. For years money In this, and perhaps every County tn tbe Stale, has been wasted by care leas or inoouipetent supervisors, aud roaia winch should be irood are little better than passable. Tbe money is gone with no permanent results, to show for It. Let us have an end to this extravagance. Let us bave in telligent management of road mak ing and soon we can point to them as being as good or bettei than any tu the states, aud without any In crease in tax-. In fact when roads are so mads taxes will decrease. Let us have an era of good road tnsking by whatever mean, that end can be brought about. Keep politics out of roads and schools and select men who are competent lor tbe work and progress will bs made, taxpayers benefitted, sod tbe county vastly improved.

The aot of May 1st 1909 In sections 2 aud 6 provides for the nse of out lines for taking food fish in waters of die Commonwealth. It may be that some construe this to inolude the Delaware river, but a glance at the title will show that il Is not so lu tended. The aot of May 8th 1909 which waa passed by the State of New Jersey April 1st 1909, thus making it a Concurrent act, regulat ii g the taking of fish in tbs Dela ware river above Trenton Falls does not permit tba osa ot outlines. No doubt some hsve ventured to nse this method if flsbing in the Dela ware here, as lines have been found, but it ia aniawful and any offender is liable if detected to a fine. There are a number living along the river who may be offended at tbe restric tion but they should know tbat the Act wss framed by a Commission from this State.sppointed to co oper ate with s like Commission from New Jersey. These Commlsslooers in their wisdom framed the Act whloh was accepted and passed by both States and la tbs law regulating fishing in tha Delaware . river be tween the States of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. New York State as suinee jurisdiction to low water mark on this side and makes such laws as he thinks proper for osntrol of fish ing In the river without. cdusoitkog Pennsylvania, ORCHARD DEMONSTRATION W. H. Bullock of Wayne county and Dr. D. E. Murray of Liverpool, Pa. were at the farm of Robert Hrod- head in Lehman Wednesday to gtvs demonstration of the results of spraying and also talks on methods of treating fruit trees. Trees were shown which had been treated with the the lime-sulfur solution and also with" Bordeaux mixture. Formulas were given for preparing them and directions ss lo how and when to spray. As the season is past for such work fruit growers should writs the 8tat Department wnd obthhl tmV. " letlna giving the formulas tor these ' preventives and methods of using t-hem so as to be prepared when spring opens to treat their trees. In terest in the work Is growing for whereas only a oonple of years ago State Inspectors bad no offers from farmers of orchards to treat, last year there were eleven thousand in. quirles from all parts of the State and one or more demonstration Or el an Is have been established in ev. ery County. The talk of Dr. Murray took a wide range, from planting trees, preparation and cultivation ot soil tothe work of pruning and pro tecting the trees from scale and tha fruit from the ravages of the insects , which attack it. He urged on fruit ' growers the necessity of organization ' and forming an association so that fieir orchards could be properly ad vertised and buyers found without individual effort. He also advised that fruit be honestly packed and labeled with the producers name so that a satisfied customer would seek that brand. His talk was Instructive- -as well as entertaining and his knowledge of his subject amply dem onstrated by his lucid explanation's, and ready manner of " answering questions. The' trees in Mr: Brod heads orchard which had been spray. - ed gave ample evidence of the bene fits resulting, and one tree which, had been treated only on one side proved the fart by displaying fair yield of fine healthy fruit on the aids' side sprayed while the other side not sprayed was p radically, barren. Mr. Brodbead also stated that anoth. er treated tree wbioh was well load, ed with large healthy apples before treatment had borne bnt little fruit and that of inferior quality. Raising -fruit ia a science and eniy those who are willing lo study and practice ap proved methods will succeed. 1 Will It pay? This can be answered by asking if it pays to raise trees which - occupy land and either bear no fruit and in a few years dis from tha effect of scale, or if they - survive . bear scrawny, wormy apples, wbioh are not fit for tha elder press and whloh a discriminating pig almost woald refuse tb eat. These are the alternatives and the wise tnau who wants results in dol lars will not hesitate to decide be tween the two. Next time the State sends men to your community to instruct you In fruit culture, or for that matter in any line pertain ing to your business of farming, go out and hear them. Spend half a day in listening and enquiring and then try to practice what they preach and yon will die a happier and a richer man and your children will point to your example with both pride and profit. We wilt cheerfully publish any refutation of tbe above.
