New Plymouth, March 20.—A spirit
et activity prevails throughout the
. length and breadth of the Payette val
ley. Orchardlsts in this section are
well along with their pruning and an
other week will see spraying opera

blooming season will be retarded until

probably be past. Every orchard is
well set with fruit buds and those in a

of 1917, which was the largest ever

the record for the Fruitland district,
with New Plymouth coming in second
with a little over 100 bushels to the
acre. Practically all of the 1918 crop
of hay is sold, most of it selling early
in the fall at llü per ton. It would
seem that "back to the farm" is the
thought in many people's minds just
now as more "would be" farmers are
either seeking places to buy or else
places to rent this spring than for many
