HOLDUP ARTISTS SLIPPED BY OFFICIALS FRIDAY MORNING JOHN SAVAGE, 0. N. RAILWAY WATCHMAN, SAID to HAVE BEEN REAL ANGRY AT GET AWAY. Dude Brown, city police official, ■ ays that John Savage «v real "mad" last Saturday morning, and this ia the cann: A bunch of "holdups" hud none through a lot of fellows returning to their homes on the Sound, from this valley, on a freight train Friday evening and two of them had gotto i unto a freight coming this way and had been recognized by the train crew and locked in a box car, in which they were making the trip this way. When the train reached here, as we are told the story. Officer Savage wai called and the "holdups" were order ed to come forth. They crawled out of the car, which was loaded with lumber, leaving scarcely room enough for thin fellows to pet into it. Sav age searched them and found noth ing, no money and no guns or other paraphernalia usually employed or carried by burglars and men of kin died occupation!; so they were let go. The train crew, however, was not sat isfied and Conductor Bridenheck linal lv searched the car and found a Run. :. flashlight and some old clothes and Officer Savage and others immediate ly set out to pick up the men whom they had let go, but they had lost no time In getting away and although the whole town and vicinity was searched they were not found. The robbers, finding themselves locked in. evidently concluded thai they were suspected and divested themselves of all evidence of their 'profession" before arriving here arid facing a lineup of inquiring officials- and hereafter anyone pulled from n boxcar under like circumstances in the presence of Officer Savage had better "come clean" or say his pray ers.

When Chief Brown Kot down town i few minutes later lie found no one there, but both stores had been en tered and 'it the Toggery they had tried to pet into the cash register but nothing was missing. At the Phar macy an attempt had been made to drill into the cash register and a scU ßOrs was broken in this attempt. Drawers and shelves had been ran sacked and some hair brushes, face powder, hot water bottles, ami alarm clock and a Gillette safety razor were ttolen, indicating that the burglars must be some dudes and possibly lale sleepers and occasionally troubled with cold feet. No due as to whom the culprit oi culprits are has been discovered. MEMBER OF PRINCESS PATS BATTALION HERE. Charles Janios Francis, one of the four surviving members of the fam ous Princess Pats Battalion, was in Leavenworth last Saturday.

IN THE WENATCHKK VALI.KY-HOMK OF THK HIG RKD APPLB- -WHBKB DOLLARS GROW ON TUCKS LEAVENWORTH, CHELAN COUNTY, WASHINGTON. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11. 1921 REVIEW OF PAST APPLE SEASON Early in the spring we started to prune our orchards but there was not much done before Feb. loth, which I believe is a good idea here in our dis trict, as there have been cases where | winter injury followed fall pruning. i The pruning; in most cases was done very carefully and thorough, as we still had little apples on our minds from the 1920 crop. In some instane j es we still have them on our hands. | We all know that little apples are not a profitable thing to raise on high priced land. Pruning can be over done as well as under done, if large timber is taken from the trees, thai is. any great amount of it. or the tops cut back into large timber, then we g-ct water shoots all through the framework of the tiee. and the tree tries to reproduce itself in wood growth. This case is worse than no pruning at all, as the tree is unbal anced with the root system. In se vere cases of this kind of pruning sun scald on the bark and sour-sap usual ly follow, which makes a very un healthy tree, so it is best to try and avoid very much sawing out of large limbs, esecially in any one year. If your leaders are too thick, then thin them out by taking out as few as you can each year, until the tree is car rying the ripht amount of leaders to let in proper air drainage and sun light Avoid flag-poling your leaders by cutting; ou" all the laterals. Along the large limbs should be left laterals, that is smaller limbs coming out at intervals from the larjre ones. These leaders, and large timber, may grow fruit spurs too, as in many instances we find where the leaders are strip ped of any leaf or fruit growing -purs for distances of four and five feel. This is not right, as sun scald on the bark is usually noticeable In such cases, which often is followed by winter injury. Each variety should be pruned according to the habits of the tree, as the differing varieties produce wood differently. The Brush I'ickini;. This we won't say very much about, ; s we all like to keep in the best hu mor possible. This operation is usu ally done nujst successfully by a strong back and short folks who are built close to the ground. Dormant Lime Sulphur Spray. The lime sulphur spray is the most commonly used spray for the early spring; work, but last spring more or chards slipped by without this spray than for any time in many years, and the results of this condition have showed very vividly all through our growing season. This spray is our best fungus spray as well as control of San scale and Rlister Mite There are several orchards from Leavenworth to Dryden showing limbs of scale. Scale spreads very rapidly and fruit with scale on it can rot be shipped out. only to by-produc; factories. Scale can be controlled with lime sulphur mixed 1 to 1(1 parts. Blister Mite has lost this district thousands of dollars this season by lowering our grades of fruit as well as sapping the vitality of the tree during the growing season, as in many cases it was on the foliage so thick that it destroyed the leaves and made them tall to the ground earlier than they should have fallen. Blister Mite can be controlled by spraying with lime-sulphur mixed in to I and put on before the leaf bud.; open in the early spring. When the leaf bud swells and shows any green it is then too late to tret perfect con trol as some of the mites which win ter over under the bud scales, then en ter into the bud and the spray will not reach these mites. There is a general rood feeling all over this up per district to spray thoroughly with lime-sulphur this coming spring:, if not yet this fall, should trees shed their leaves. Our motto should be, "C!et the Blister Mite or it will get us." These mites at present time are trathered thickly around the buds an i ;.re preparing; to winter there. They will do no particular harm from this time on until sprintr. but in case.- of large orehardl it is sometimes dif ficult to pet all the area covered be fore buds show green, In these ca-e> there mieht he some fall sprayine done. Calix spray tin's past mmoh wai done well all over the district. but the cover sprays which follow ca lix arsenate lead spray, was done at random. We sh"n]d spray in thi ■ district at least three times, with ar s.r.ate of lead. First in the enlix'. followed by date eiven by TTort. office at Wenatchee for first cover -pray. i then about eighteen days latei with second cover spray. This -hotild ex terminate the first brood of worm 1 and if you should -c.i any <iims of i I worms after that spray, third cover ; I spray about eighteen days later. [f j the first brood is entirely controlled, • t there won't bo any second brood tn ■ ! come. Past season some ranchers . | just sprayed calix, others sprayed ca : lix and waited until late in the sum ■ mer to spray first cover spray. In i I these cases there were plenty of I worms. The ranches which had besi control of the worms and the smallest per cent, were- the ranchers who sprayed the calix and then two cover sprays on Riven dates, which is very important. Another grave mistake made by some the past season was Waiting un til after the lead -pi ay was put i>n before ditching the ground for Irri gation. It is no joy ride to go bump ing over ditches riding on a spray machine, but neither is it any fun try ing to make ditches in a cover crop of alfalfa two feet high. And that isn' all, but in some cases the ground got so dry before water was put on it that it was almost impossible to pet water through to the ends of the rows, and some trees dried up later in the glim mer just on this account. As there was all kinds of water this past seas on, and those who did not have their ground wet made the mistake of not starting to put the 'water on early enough in the season. We can re member our trees are bearing size now and take lots more water to de velop crops than it did just to produce new wood on young trees. Ground should be well wet and then the water should be taken off until the ground warms up. This is what makes trees and apples grow, heat and moisture, and not cold, wet (■■round. Then the ground should no' be allowed to dry out before putting the water back on again, as the hard dry ground in hot weather of July and August and no moisture for the tree to take up, is about the worst thing that can happen to our trees, and also the crop on them, as it is of ten the starter of dry spot on the frui' and perhaps winter injury on the tree the following season. Thinning apples has got to be a sci ence. It, like pruning, can be over done as well as under done. There is a happy medium to all of it. Three years ago if a rancher got little ap ples, it was pruning he though) he lacked, so he went in and cut them all to pieces to get the trees to bear bifr tipples. They did for one season, as all the vitality went into about two thirds of a tree instead of a whole tree. The second year he had littl" applea again, so we found that we did not have the right solution to get big apples by cutting away one-third of the tree. So this idea was some what abandoned and the latest ide is to thin the small apples on" very heavy and some ranchers are already threatening to annihilate whole limbs of apples, this coming season in order to get the size. There was •c.mo heavy thinning and some good thinning done up is this neck of the woods, but -till the apples did not get so large but what you could still get fortyeight of them into a box, and the missing link is. the KICK IN THE SOIL. Without the plant food in the soil for the tree to take up and pro duce a crop, all the pruning and thin ning will never make big apples grow on a stan-ing tree. You can't take off without putting back, so we have the same old story again, little apples. Perhaps a little larger than last year but just "a little," because they got all the water they wanted to drink even if they did go hungry. We should quit packing at 216 even on Winesaps, and raise real N'orth westom boxed apples, I believe ii can lie done, and T believe we are go ing to have to do it. Maturity. Apples matured early this season , to what they mostly do here, and where late picking has been done, es pecially on Romes, they are RIPE. right now. Jonathons were left too long on the treed in somo instances and interior breakdown has been noticed.

All fruit in this district seems to be under some kind of protection from the weathei as the orchards appear bare of fruit stacked up. Disking is now being done in some orchards where cover crops arc heavy to prevent fire and mice from destroying the trees. There is not so much danger from fire at this season 1 ut there is from mice as they live under avy matted-down cover crops and cat the hark of the trees during the winter months, when the snow is on the ground. Grass and leave ihould be pulled back from the tree trunks perhaps two feet all the way around so that they would not be 80 apt to gnaw the bark from thi tree trunk. Mice seem to live in large droves, some years they will live in one place pml do a lot of damage to five or ten acres, and never leem to bothi th • surrounding orchards at all, and per hapi the following season it will lie in i n entirely different location; but it is r.lways, if at all, on a piore of matte ('own heavy cover crop, usuallj alfal fa, where they seem to nest.
