Another orchard visited was that
of Mr. B. P. Freeman of near Pick

Some of the finest young fruit trees
in the county, though, are in the
orchard of ill]. W. T. Bates. le has
some native peach t rees three years

five years ohi, and they are full of
fruit. This is another orchard that
has had the attention of 'Mr. Bowen.,
One of the most interesting prun

Mr. Bowen has given, however, is
with a peach orchard at tthe l'ikns
