of hard trying," said .TUn" Williams,, on
of the old originals of Cheyenne and Wyo

of Its kind on the face of the earth," he
continue), "and we want the ruler of the
biggest thing In nations to see it and en
joy a western welcome and be pro pertly
entertained. Colonel Roosevelt last year
waa made to glow with enthusiasm, de
spite all his experience of the west, and
If we get President Taft this year we will
sure make him a western booster for life,
with the treatment he'll get"
Mr. Williams reports all prospects good
tn Wyoming, and he gives the Omaha Land
how credit for exerclarng a positive In
fluence In encouraging Investors and set
tlers to give more and closer attention
to western opportunities. "I did not see It,'
"but It must have been a great ahow, and
this coming fall a great many more people

six to ten miles wide and twenty-five miles
long, the eastern and wetern limits being
bounded by rather high foothills, which
gradually draw together as they near Mt
Hood, where they meet. We are In the
very shadow of these eastern hills and
separated from them by the river, which
here rushes madly along on Its precipi

This letter Is to be merely a plain state

dilate upon the beauties of nature as seen
here. Ai.d yet no words can give you any

In the sold, gray dawn old Hood looms
up cold, stern and silent. Presently, from
over the eastern hills, a single shaft of

the very topmost peak, kissing It Into a
pink of delicate hue. Quickly the colors

Lower, even lower, down the mountain side

the clouds form a cap or hood of downy

the western sky all aflame with fiery col

a -mighty sentinel under the odd light of
the moon. Night after night have I gone
to sleep, my eyes resting on dear old Hood,
which we have all come to love so much,
my senses lulled Into forgetfulness by the
never-ceasing roar of the river. Ah, If one

scribing this region Is: "Where the rain

and too much heat develop the apple too
rapidly,' preventing It from taking on those
excellent keeping qualities and the de
licious flavor characteristic of the Hood
River apple. In the lower valley, the wind
blows all the time and windbreaks are a
necessity In many caoes, as the slant of
the trees clearly shows, but here we are
free from this. Another advantage over

Inflict upon young trees by growing straw
berries between them. There are those
who will scoff st this statement especially
ths railroad advertising manager and ths
real estate agent, but various Inquiries
among the growers lead me to believe In,
and stand by, this statement
It Is said that a Hood river orchardlst
knows each tree la his orchard and cares
for It more seslously than many a New
York mother does her children. Be that as
it may. he certainly exhibits the greatest
care in pruning, spraying and cultivating
his trees and In handling his crop.
The fruit magastnes are full of articles
on pruning and It should not be necessary
to say anything on this feature of orchard
work, but I am presuming that you want
full Information on alt points. Pruning Is
done to give symmetry of form to ths
tree, to take out all Interfering branches
that prevent free air circulation and keep
the sunlight from the center of the tree,
to strengthen the branches that they may
grow In such a way as to properly bear
their burden, of fruit and to enable the
fruit to take on sise and color. There are
two distinct methods of pruning, and
whichever one Is adopted, It Is put into
practice the day the tree is planted. Some
one has said that the first five years of a
child's life determines Its entire future,
and this is equally true of a tree, because
during this period the foundation is laid
and the framework built The one method
Is to develop a center stalk, from which
branches shoot out at intervals, but the
better plan and that largely followed in
this valley Is to throw the center of the
tree ' open, vase-shaped. In Better Fruit
for December, 1810, appears a most
thorough snd excellent article on pruning
from the pen of A. I. Mason, one of the
most successful orchardlsts tn this valley.
He advocates the open center method and
shows how a tree should bs pruned each
year of Its growth to attain this snd and
the advantages of this method of pruning.
By heading the tree In quite low, keeping
tha oenter open and limiting the main
branches to Ave tn number, preferably
three or four, as widely distributed as
possible on the trunk of the tree, so that
no forks are formed. It gives the tree a
goblet shape. The work of spraying,
thinning and picking la greatly facilitated
thereby, the air circulates freely and the
sunlight strikes every portion of the tree,
giving ths fruit a better chance to grow
and color. The ons drawback to the open
oenter ties In the fact that the outer
branches need supports to carry the load
of fruit, and Mr. Mason rhows how clev
erly 'and successfully this Is accomplished
by the use of wires stretched from the
branches to a ring In the center of the
tree. Pruning Is done twice each year, in
the winter or early spring when the tree
Is dormant and again in July. The former
pruning of old trees removes all cross or
inward growing limbs, all limbs that may
Interfere with ths air circulation and all
broken branches, while- ths summer prun
ing takes off the water sprouts.
Spraying Is another Important feature of
orchard work, religiously attended to by
the successful orchardlst' Last spring my
trees were sprayed with a lime and sul
phur mixture for scab and fungus, and
again In ths summer for fungus growths,
but It was and Is not necessary to spray
for ths coddling moth, as the nights here
In this upper valley are ao cold the worms
cannot hatch out though the lower val
ley people, still havs this pest to fight.
The green aphis was sprayed for at dif
ferent times as necessity demanded. Now
you will be Inclined to doubt my word and
will accuse me of gross exaggeration, such
as Is found in various advertising matter
sent out from these northwest states, yet
It Is an absolute fact that out of nearly
1,000 boxea of apples marketed I found only
half a dosen do you fully comprehend
what that means only six real live worms
In apples. There may have, been one box
of apples, certainly no more, which showed
stings, but; only six wormy apples do I
recall having found during ths season. A
small percentage of Delaware Reds were
injured by fungus, but prompt spraying
prevented ths spread of the disease and
ths loss was small.
Ws havs many other pests, such as 'the
sap sucker, or what we used to call the
woodpecker, which punctures ths bark of
the tree, allowing the sap to oose out. He
makes hole after hole and then goes back
to suck ths sap. If not discovered in time
bs will completely girdle ths tree with
these holes and cause great Injury, if not
death, to ths tree. Our little tt is kept
ready, and It was a proud day for me
when I brought in my first bird, for never
before had I ahot a living thing. The
gopher in the newer sections is a menace
to young trees, and an effectual remedy
Is to put poisoned raisins in their runways.
One or two applications generally suffice.
Cultivation begins early in the season
and continuee well into the summer, but
oeasas in early August, as later cultivation
tends to continue the trees growth (I am
peaking of young trees now.) Into late
fall, giving them no chance to harden up
for winter. When the young apples have
formed and are about the slse of hickory
nuts the work of thinning Is begun, the
aim being to remove all apples that ars
not likely to fully develop, or that may
limb rub, or are too crowded, leaving only
as much fruit as the tree will carry and
bring to perfection. This is almost as
laborious a task as that of picking. I well '
remember my first sight of the orchard .
after the thinning had been finished last
year. The ground was literally covered
with apples and dismay and fear filled me
as I thought of ths terrible loss. And yet
when the orop waa harvested I found ao i
many small and unmarketable apples I
realised that the thinning had not been
And now for the harvest I The trees havs
bsen pruned and sprayed.-the ground has
been watered freely, the applea thinned,

vanised Iron, lined with canvaa, ars given
the pickers, who are Instructed how to
handle the fruit. The applea ars pulled
from the tree with a slight upward twist
so that the atom may not be broken and
fruit spurs knocked oft. and placed, not
dropped. In the buckets, and from this time
forward ths apples are handled as carefully
as you would handls eggs. Great care Is
exercised In picking and by means of lad
ders and cross planka ths fruit is reached
without a picker climbing Into the trees.
The apples are then placed In boxes and
hauled to ths apple hoee. there to be
wiped and sorted and mads ready for pack
ing. Ths practice is becoming quite gen.
ersi to make twe or three pickings, rather
than stripping ths tree of all Its fruit at

Such, In brief. Is ths work of ths Hood
River orchard., work that enabled the
valley to win the sweepstake prUe at the
National Apple show at Spokane for the
best carload of apples exhibited, also the
first prizes for best ears of Spltseribiirg
and Tellow Newtowns, in competition with
the entire northwest. At Chicago, also, the
weepetake prise came to the aame Hood
River grower. Surely the art of growing
apples hss reached well nigh perfection
here. The problem of disposing of the
apples, however. Is yet before us and has
not been satisfactorily settled, as I will
attempt to show In my next and last let
ter dealing with the packing and marketing
of the crop.
This letter would not be complete without
a reference to the class of people settling
In this upper valley. Many New Yorkers
are coming here from homes of affluence
and refinement; young men with college
education, who are taking up the work In
an Intelligent, scientific way and It augurs
well for the future of this country when
such type of men take up farming In Its
various branches as a life worn. A cleaner,
brighter, manlier lot of young men can
not be found anywhere than up here In
the heart of the Cascades.
Many amusing stories are told ebeut
these New Yorkers and their first attempts
at farming. One of them was getting ready
to prune his tree and asked if he should
do It with an axe. On another occasion
he waa making his first attempt at milk
ing. After a couple of hours hard work
he came Into tha house disgusted saying:
"It Is no use, the cow is gaining on me
all the time." Another having an equally
sad experience wanted to know: "How
rauoh should one get at a sitting?" But 1.
too, was as green as any New Yorker. 1
tried the cow, but ths milk would not corns.
The next "sitting" showed some Improve
