FOR GOOD FRUIT FROM THE WEST Is No Danger of Overproduc tion if Quality Is Right, in the Opinion of Fruit Expert. (Staff Correspondence.) Emmett, Jan. 9. -There is no danger of an over-prod u< tion of good fruit hi Idaho, or in the northwest, according to Professor VineeiT of the University of Idaho, who gave some interesting figures in his able address Wednes day morning at the Movanle School of Agriculture, in progress this week at Emmett, Payette and Parma. Pro fessor Vincent's figures on fruit pro duction in the nation was .an inspira tion to every fruitgrower present to produce larger quantities of better fruit f the extra fajicj and fancy kind. H. I'. Ashby <*t Boise gave a splendid talk on fruit tree inspection and fruit Planning an Orchard. ' Planning and Planting the orchard" was the subject of the first address Wednesday morning, given by profess or Vincent, the horth Ultimi list in the agricultural department of the Univer sity of Idaho. He said in part: The factors to mala* up a fruit dis trict are accessibility as to transpor tation facilities, five miles being as far a yv ay as a i o m mere ini orchard should be planted ; 11 ie soil b* •lore buying the land, a fi eld examinai ion of tin soil should be ma de, a go* »d subsoil being important fin apple pro duct ion ; the or « hard site is i important . a slight elevn - tion being im • portant t ■ auv ir gives pond air ■ idrc ulntam m iml good water; The • il the trth and drama east slopes is usually the best for or • hard planting. The northern slope re tards the blooming period in tlie spring,; which is desirable ' An important factor is that the or-I chard man must have adaptability for A Coffee Cup Contains Over 2 1-2 Grains of Caffeine. Physicians recognize this drug to be of poisonous effect upon stom ach, heart and nerves. Scientists employed by the U. S. Government found, in the famous Rabbit Case, that an amount of caffeine equiva lent to that contained in two average cups of coffee killed a Rabbit. What wonder then, if you are a coffee drinker, that you suffer from indigestion, heart disturbance, headache and biliousness, sleeplessness, or nerve irritation? Multiply 2 1 -j grains nf caffeine by the number of cups of coffee you drink each da\ and you will determine the amount of poison you give yourself daily. Eminent physicians are protesting against the present use of coffee. (Your family doctor can vouch for this). The aches and ills of your own body also protest when the burden becomes too heavy. Doesn't your own common sense suggest that you quit coffee NOW? The New Food-drink, Instant Postum offers the easy way This charming table beverage furnishes a hot drink of remarkable palatability. It has a rich seal brown color which changes to golden brown when cream is added. Tasting much like high-grade Java, it makes the ideal cup for those who want to get away from coffee troubles. Instant Postum requires no boiling It is made "quick as a wink" by pouring hot water upon a level teaspoonful of the powder in a cup and stirring until dissolved Add sugar and cream to taste and you have a very fascinating beverage.

No Danger t f Over-Production. Professor Vincent doesn't think there ever will he an over-production of ex tra fancy fruit. "There will be an over-production of inferior fruit, but we do not want to grow inferior fruit in the northwest, not for the market," he declared. "It is important for the fruitgrower, before he plants his or chard, to learn what kind of soil ne has. "There are 142,000 acres planted to orchard in Idaho. The little flurry tha past year in fruitgrowing will have- the effect of causing a number of orchards all over the country being grubbed out. 'Pbe fruitgrower who holds onto his or ehard and keeps it up, is certain to win out in the long run. Large Decrease in Bearing Trees. "In the east 10 years there was a de crease of 33 per cent in the number of bearing fruit trees in the United States. "Missouri. Illinois and New York, in 1910. hod together 25 per cent of the bearing fruit trees in the country. In Missouri there were over 5,000,000 fruit tree. 1 grubbed out in the past 10 years; in Illinois, in the same period, over 4, ? fruit trees were id in New York, in the illions of hearing fruit hen are thousands of avis apples, and they with worms, ots., that apidly grubbed out. and other southern s of acres of peach grubbed out, because iffected from San Jose < b orgia : thousand are being i re badly < "There are thousands of acres of oung orchards being planted on land is not adapted to fruit growing. All these things impel me to think that there is not danger of an over-production of real good fruit in the great north west. "I would advise the buying of nurs ery slock from the home nursery, be cause home-grown nursery stock acclimated and does better than nurs ery stock grown in far-off places.'' Square System of Planting. Professor Vincent advises apples to be planted 30 feet apart, peaches 20 feet apart, and pears 25 feet apart. He prefers the square system of planting fruit trees, as against the quincunx, or filler, system, or the hexagonal system. In the square system it is easy to cultivate the tree rows from every di rection, and the irrigation furrows can be run through the tree rows in bet ter shape. Blasting holes for tree planting with a half stick of dynamite for each hole has been found very beneficial. Fruit Tree Inspection. ''Inspection of Nursery Stock" was th© subject of an instructive address by H. P. Ashby, the fruit Inspector of Ada county. He said in part: "All trees in Idaho nurseries are inspected before leaving the nurseries. All nurs ery stock from outside the state is held at the depots of Idaho and inspected before being permitted to be planted. I have found it necessary to burn up at least one-third of the nursery stock shipped Into Idaho from outside nurs eries, because their stock was diseased. In some parts of Idaho it has been found necessary to burn up half the nursery stock shipped into Idaho from outside nurseries, because they were diseased." Mr. Ashby exhibited samples of va rious kinds of tree diseases, and ex plained them and their effects. "One pair of woolly aphis is callable « f propogating three tons of aphis in a single season," he said. "Take a spade and dig around the roots of trees af fected with aphis, and spray around the base of tlm trees with a lime and sulphur solution. "It is well worth anyone's while o own your own miseroscope and study out your own orchard condition. It will save you a good deal of loss. The microscope I use cost me $1.25. When you get in a shipment of trees it is well for you to be at the depot when the inspector inspect., your trees. "When you get your nursery stock, T would advise you to dip those trees in a one to eight solution of lime and sulphur. I would not take to my or Cold In Head? Break It up. Clear your head.

"Pear Might should be cut off the tree and burned. "An ounce of carbolic acid to a pint of water is a good disinfectant to dip your tools used in cuttiug twig blight, etc. Put the twigs cut off in a sack, and burn the twigs and sacks. Dis infect your tool every time there is a cutting. The best time to cut blight is in the afternoon, because then the blight Is working, and is gummy, and you are then more certain to get all the blight. Be sure to burn the cut tings.

PRISONERS ENJOYING MUSIC AT THE JAIL Behind the steel baps nf the Ada county jail a dozen men joined in the singing of "My Baby Rose" and other songs to the accompaniment of the player-piano sent to the jail by Filers' Piano house. Under the skillful hands of Charles Jackson, a federal money order forger, all of the popular music of the day was rendered. The leadership of the prison chorus was entrusted to Joe Carrol, charged with white slavery, and he led the men through the mazes of the music and brought them out on the chorus with such a volume that it would have done good to the! hearts of any L ader of the choral so - ; c loties of the city. With their hands resting on the heavy liars of t hi .strong box. the men who ape ennsid-j ered the most desperate characters in 'the prison listened as the music was! wafted to them and joined their voices! ms Carrol's leadership directed them.j His face shining for the fin t tlrne)^ since he has been in jail, Oliver Bates, charged v ith white slavery, "tripped Hie light fantastic" around the narrow < onflnes of his steel bound cell and threw his strong voice in on the chorus J;-s the notes of "My Baby Hose" came through the open door to the strong box of the Jail.
