It is Muted that Andrew county alono lias Mild over $100,000 worth. Holt, tho banner fruit county, will do better, while Atchison, Noda vay, .jcutry and DeKalli, will as sist. Of courso no reliable figures can bo obtnined, but an estimate cau bo formed by considering tho shipments from ccitiin ullrond stations, btew artsvllle, Savannah, AmazoHia, Oregon, St. Joseph and Maryville havo been tho principal shipping points for litis sea son's crop, and estimates have been made which partially show tho magni tude and importance of tho fruit culture in Northwest Missouri. It is certainly gratifying to all owners of orchards, that tho crop tills year is a profitable ono. Indeed, it may ho stated that fruit culture always pays woll. A oomp'ete lallure of the npplo crop in Northwest Missouri lias never been known, while very near us. Iowa, Nrbraskn and Da kota, can not successfully ralso apples Whenever nu acre of ground In npplo trees with no cultivation other than trimming nnd locking niter tho trees, will brine ti crop of apples worth say 8200 a very low estimate-it would ap pear to every farmer that a few acres in a carefully attended orchard, would provo moio profitable than so much coin and hog.
