A RUUD INSPECTION
No Diseased Trees or Inferior Stuff to
Be Allowed on the North Side.
Outside nurserymen have found
to their sorrow that the stringent
horticulture laws, passed by the last
legislature of Idaho were not put on
the Issiks for mere pastime, hut in
the hands of State Inspeetor Me
Pherson they are being earned out
to the letter. Our citizens and sttr
rounding farmers had an example
of this the past week, and they are
now congratulating themselves that
we have tin inspector who is fear
less in the enforcement of the law.
A large shipment of trees were
reeeiveil here last week, mostly from
Oregon nurseries, and hardly had
they arrived U-fore :t deputy iuspee
tor was on the ground, win» pro
eeeded at once to give the trees
thorough inspection, the result of
which was the condemning of a
large jM-r cent of them, which he
found Wen- afflicted with root gall
and hairy root.
The action of the inspector ereat
e< I so much havoc that the proprie
tor of one of the nurseries was dis
patched for, and after arriving here
und witnessing the disastrous re
suits of the work of the deputy in
sjs.-i-tor, the presence of State in
speetor M«-|'hersoll Wits sought, hut
he ileeliltisl to interfere w ith the
work of his deputy here, and eon
a
seqilently the eondemiied tr«s-s were
destroy«-»!
There certainly is urgent neeess
ity for these stringent laws, w hich
are d«-signed to pro|>«-rly proh-et the
grower of fruit trees from fraudu
leully incline«! uursymeu, t»«>th in
side and outside the state, and to
compel tin- fruit growers to properly
spray their tn-es.
The present Idaho horticultural
law shoulil 1«- reail and studied not
only by the nurserymen in this and
outside states, hilt by every grower
or prosjss-tiv«- grower of orchards in
the state. The present law went
into effect March Hth, 11111, and
from now on every Idaho nursery
and orchard will have to stand fur
a rigid inspection, and it is hoped
that every form of disease and jx-st
affecting fruit tws will quickly he
eradicated front this stat*-.
nursery stock shipjx-d into Idaho,
and all mtrserv stix-k and orchards
grown in the state w ill In- insp«>ete<|
from now on. Seven- jK-naltii-s are
attached for violations of tin- law.
Tin- result of the insp<>ction h«-r«
falls most heavily n|s»n Mr. Jayeox,
who as agent for the company in
question ha«l put in his time the
past year in soliciting orders for
the stock, and who, we understand,
is now deprive«! of Ids commission
for the sale of this st<K-k, not
through any fault of his, hut through
the action of the nursery in attempt
All
ing to evade the law n-ganling <iis
ensed trees. No «»tie has a word of
blame against Mr. Jayeox, who,
although a tinaiicial looser, wel
comed tin* iusiM-etiou its much ns
anyone of «»nr fruit growers.
Another sottre«* of great loss to
him is the refusal of many to accept
trees that were not furnished as or
<ler«sl by Mr. Jayeox, the nursery
taking the liberty of sending small
er trees, and otherwis«- of a nature
not «'all«*«! for by the onler.
The whole transaction has Ix-eu a
source of annoyance on the part of
the litrger purchasers, who had to
seek elsewhere for tlu-Lr supply.

Profits of the Dairy.
Just at this time, when the snh
ji-i't of dairying is interesting our
farmers, and they are seeking re
liable information on the auhject,
the following from the Shoshone
Journal may he of interest, as it ap
plies to I.ineoln county and shows
what is being done in our midst;
statement is often made by
dairymen that a g»»»»l cow will yield ten
dollars worth of hatter fat each month
for about ten months of the year.
"The Journal is interested in obtain
ing reliable information from near by
sources as to the profits of dairying in
this seetion of irrigated Idaho, lieeause

More Dairy Talk.
Manager l»ve, of the (tooding (*n*am- I

accompanied by Mr. A. lî. Nystnuu
wbo is also deeply interested in the new
creamery project, but who is now bol.j
ing the |iosilion of instructor of Dairy
ing in the Washington Stale College, but
who exp«-cts to n-sign his position at the!
close of the present term and devote his
time to the creamery in this seetion.
These gentlemen consider the future
the creamery busicess very bright in this
section, as the farmers are manifesting
milch interest in the matter. It is the
ih-sin- of this company to install a skim
ming station hen-as soon as conditions
will warrant the same, thus giving our!
farmers a market for their cream with
Ol
cash returns each month.
The geiitli-mi-ii informed ns that they
had reeeivtsl a ear load of dairy «-ows the
