are likely to become badly infected
with scale. As an indication of the
surprising rapidity with which scale

ber of scales that may be present on «a
single tree, Mr. Graham mentions
spraying one tree south of Boise in an
old orchard in the desire to ascertain
whether one application would he suf

''Some days .after making the appli
cation the orchard was visited to note
the result. A section of bark one-half

P. Taylor who made microscopic ex
amination and counted the dead and
living scale. Although more than 100
scale had been destroyed in this small
section of bark. 11 were yet alive. In
trees very badly infected apparently
the encrustation can be such that one
application is not always sufficient. In
such cases an application in the fall
can be made and another application
before the buds develop in the spring,
onj* or two applications can he made,
one i nthe early days of Mar-h, an
other before the leaf buds open. Ex

there are hundreds of orchards so
badly encrusted wit^ scale that the ex
pense of complete eradication coupled
with the fact that many of the older
orchards were planted with unsuitable,
or unprofitable rarities makes it a
matter of sound business policy to
either pull out the trees or blow' them
out with dynamite and let the trees
be used as fuel or burned in brush
heaps. Apple orcharding is only pro
fitable with suitable varieties intelli
gently cared for and cultivated. Such
aged orchards infested with scale are
a menace to the young orchards which

old or young should he thoroughly
sprayed at th f s season of the year lest
they should become a source of infec
tion to the neighborhood and a source
should he verv profitable,
of loss to the owner."

Charles L*. Joy & Co., the popular
firuggist. has established a new record
in the sale of medicine. He says he
don't believe any medicine ought to
be paid for unless It does the user some
good and he has adopted the plan of
selling Solvax, the standard kidney
remedy, under a positive guarantee of
quick relief from all kidney or blad
der misery, r money back* without a
question. This speaks eloquently for
the virtues of the remedy that already
has created auch a widespread demand
in Boise. Hundreds of people in every
walk of life have been relieved of the
«agonies attendant on weak, disarranged
or «.logged-up kidneys and bladder by
this remarkable remedy. It is not
just merely a kidney treatment, it is ;
a medicine that puts the entire, pain
racked body into normal condition and
gives vigorous health after the many
painful disorders caused directly or in
directly by sick kidneys. A change
for the better will be seen after the
first few doses of Solvax and its con
tinued use will soon tone up the en
tire system of improperly working or
gans and give you the desire Lo live
and enjoy life to its fullest.
Solvax is considered the best kidney
remedy on the market today because it
«aims to cure by striking directly at the
cause of all the trouble. The many
pains and aches caused by improperly
working kidneys cannot be permanent
ly cured unless the cause is removed.
Solvax is sold under a positive guar
antee to refund the money if#it does
not cure. This is the strongest proof!
that can be offered as to the merit of j
the medicine. You are cheating your
self out of your slice of life if you don't
give Solvax a chance.—Adv.
