FREE HAND GIVEN
TO THE CABINET
Wilson ::::ws Mara&ors Wide
THEY CHOOSE ASSISTANTS.
President Commends Several on Selec
tions They Made Work of Chief Ex
ecutive Has Been Trebled White
Houso a Dumping Ground Many Ig
nore Department Heads.
By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington, March 24. Special.
President Wilson has allowed his cabi
net olllcers a very free hand in the
choice of their assistants. He has
made no appointments without first
consulting the cabinet member, and
whenever a cabinet officer has Indicat
ed ills desire for the selection of n par
ticular man for an assistant the pres
ident has acquiesced unless there was
some very good reason why the ap
pointment should not be made. In
many instances he has commended the
cabinet members for their selections.
Just how far the president will carry
the Idea of having the cabinet mem
bers nttond to the business of the conn
try Is not yet known, hut it would save
him very much trouble if he could get
back to the methods of the old days
when the cabinet members ran their
departments without aid save on the
more Important questions.
White House a Hopper.
For several administrations the White
House lias been a hopper into which
5 has been dumped all the departmental
business. The clerical force has been
largely Increased and the work of the
president and his secretaries has been
trebled, all because the tendency has
been toward centralization and the
people want to have the president at
tend to everything.
Another reason was because nearly
all the former presidents wanted to
know nbout' everything that was going
on; they wanted to be consulted about
even the smallest things. But it has
also been on account of the desire of
the senators and members of the house
to carry everything to the president
and Ignore the cabinet olllcers, more
particularly if they think they can
"work" the president nnd couldn't do
likewise with the cabinet member.
An effort may be made to reform the
conservation movement or to "con
serve the conservationists," as one
man put it. Many western men ns
sert that there has been too much im
practical work done in conservation;
that too much land lias been reserved;
that people are deprived of an oppor
tunity to use actual necessities in the
west; that a better method can bo de- i
vised which will save the resources
nnd also utilize them.
Every effort in the direction of
changing the present conservation' pol
icy has been blocked by such men us
Gilford Pinchot nnd his followers, but
It is possible that the now Democratic
blood from the west in both houses of
congress, coupled with the fact that
this is a Democratic administration,
may ninko it possible to bring about
changes in the conduct of forests and
other resources of the west. At one
time it was thought a man from one
of the stntes most affected would be
come secretary of the interior where
the conservation Interests are grouped,,
but the suggestion raised strong pro
tests by the conservation promoters.
Wyoming Not Lost.
Because the political complexion of
the senate has changed does not menu
that Wyoming has become lost in the
shullle. Senntor Warren will continue
to bo nn Important factor. Ho is the
ranking minority member of appro
priations, agriculture nnd rules nnd
second on military affairs, public build
ings and irrigation, besides being chair
man of one of the best minority com
mittees. Wnrron will bo a conferee on
tho most Important appropriation bills
when thoy nro considered.
Senator Clark, tho other Wyoming
senator, Is tho ranking minority mem
ber on judiclnry nnd conservation, sec
ond on public lands, a member of the
finance committee nnd also had a
choice of chairmanships of the minor
ity. Not to Be Retired.
Senator Bacon is not to bo retired
because ho was not mndo president
pro tern, of the senate. In the short
special session of the senate ho show
ed that he Intended to tnko an active
part in everything that came before
the senate. It Is quite likely, that ns
chairman of foreign relations ho may
hnvo n leading rolo in tho senate, as
our foreign problems are such as to
cnuso a great deal of anxiety.
Tenacious to the Last,
It was amusing to see senators of tho
United States struggling and tenacious
over tho matter of committee assign
ments, oven on committees which had
nover met nnd never would meet nnd
Which were created simply for tho pur
pose of giving some senator a chair
Tho relative rank and the chairman
ship of an "expenditures" committor
held tho nttentiort' of the senate for
several moments, although It is kuown

thuslastlc and spirited address. He
first outlined what some of tho oth
r counties are doing which havo be
come organized. The suggestion of
Mr. Lewis to incorporate Wayne
county with other counties in the
formation of tho Northeastern Fruit
Growers' Association mot with tho
hearty approval of tho doctor. Ho
stated that Wayne county soil was
especially adapted for raising tho
Baldwin Spy, Greenings, King and
others. You would raise these varle
ties in perfection, in color, size and
fiavor. You could then conduct an
advertising campaign and these ap
ples would be known all over the
world. I have received hundreds of
letters from buyers who want to
know where the apple sections are.
They ask especially for districts
where tho fruit has been sprayed
and pruned. Letters como to mo as
far west as Iowa. They commence
to buy the middle of June. Tho
dealers and buyers know the crop
condition before the growers. Prof.
Surface then showed tho audience a
picture of his largo orchard. He said
you can't run an orchard by proxy,
neither can you give orders over a
'phone to your hired man and expect
Stockcr Making Good.
At this point Attorney R. M. Stock
er, who is also somewhat of a farm
er, stated that he managed to get
something out of his farm. "Well
some can," continued Prof. Surface.
The professor then related several
instances where other counties were
unable to dispose of their crops and
the fruit was dead oven in the local
market. Organizations were formed
and the fruit was soon disposed of.
Apples must be intelligently graded
and honestly packed. Experts at sta
tions where in many places they are
hired to pack and grade, are not ex
pensive, when it is considered what
is returned. If it is a busy season
It will give you more time and atten
tion to production. There are two
distinctive qualities connected with
marketing apples. One is to produce
the "goods" and tho other is to sell
them. You should have an annual
meeting. Tho best fruit exhibit any
where could bo made right hero in
Wayne county. Advertise before
hand and you will have a largely at
tended meeting. Mr. Lewis sold his
apples at a fine profit after an ex
hibit held recently. Get the pulling
together habit Advertise. You will
gain considerable by organizing. You
will learn how to get rid of tho de
fective apples and buyers will be
flocking to you. They buy by the
carload, not by the wagon load or
buslicl as some may presume. I
therefore advocate the organization
of tho Wayne County 'Fruit Growers'
Association. In union there is
strength. It makes all the difference
in the world about raising apples
as to what kind of soil they are rais
ed upon. Different soils make dif
ferent conditions. Organize and then
you can analyze your soil. You will
tnen be in position to receive noted
speakers from Washington, D. C,
and other places.
To Organize Association.
Chairman Hull tllfin nnnminnort

sion: H. A. Oday, M. E. Simons, and
Hon. A. T. Searle.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet at 1:30 p. m.
Chairman D. W. Hull opened the
afternoon session by presenting Dis
trict State Inspector W. H. Bullock,
who assiduously labored to oganizo
this flSsrifiifltlnn nnd wlin hna rinnn
much to better conditions in Wayne
county. Mr. uunocic said in part:
W. II. Mullock's Address.
"From tho fact that there are very
many people in the county and
doubtless somo that are present this
afternoon, who do not understand
the work nf thn OrHinrH Tnnnontni-
nnd Demonstrator, therefore I
tnougnt it would bo well at this time
to give a brief history of our work,
which was instituted by the Depart
ment of Agriculture, Division of Zo
ology, with Prof. Surface at tho head
of the work.
His name soon became famous all
over the United States for his skill
as a zoologist, entomologist and writ
er and for giving out to the masses
of peoplo valuable information in
regard to controlling nnd destroying
insect pests, which has been of un
told value to tho farmers and citi
zens of this great Commonwealth.
I wish also to tell you of some of
the conditions, as well as of some of
tne destructive pests that I find when
I am inspecting orchards. These In
sects, in many cases unobserved and
unmolested, are slowly but surely
sapping away the very life of many
a valuable tree and shrub, all the
more valuable perhaps because they
wore set out, cared for and highly
pnzou uy somo loved one who has
passed away but is not forgotten.
I have not yet been all over the
county but havo covered a wide
, range and I know whereof I speak
when I say that a very largo per cent.
of our orchards are old,- say from
fifty to seventy-five years of age, but
there are thousands of trees that are
being, sot out annually.
Tills brings an Instance to my
mind where I recently saw an or
chard of about one hundred trees
that were planted last spring in a
stiff, heavy sod. Holes wore dug,
and the trees, one year old, were set
in them. It was a pitiful sight to
behold. No pruning whatever had
been done, many of the trees were
dead, and those that had survived
tho trying ordeal simply stood there
awaiting tho fato of thoso that had
already gone. They had failed to
make any growth. Why? For vari
ous reasons. First, because the
heads wore not cut back to corres
pond with the cutting or breaking
of the roots when taken out of the
Second. There are always more
or less broken and bruised roots on
trees when thoy come from the nur
sery. A portion of tho broken ends,
also bruised roots, should invariably
be cut off and always cut from the
under side at an angle so tho roots
will have a proper bearing when set
in tho excavation that is made to re
Third. Trees set out in sod and
grass with weeds allowed to grow
around them is a great detriment as
the grass robs the tree of the mois
ture that rightfully belongs to it and
of which it is in urgent need in order
to grow, especially in a dry season,
such as we have been having.
I find oyster shell scale common
In all of our apple orchards and not
only in the orchards but in many
other places. Along the road side,
in country and town, trees are badly
injured or dying from the effects of
this scale, and notwithstanding the
frequency of this scale, I do not
think one-fourth of tho orchard own
ers are able to determine what it is.
The San Jose scale has invaded our
county seat that we justly feel proud
of, and it has laid low some of the
trees and shrubs that were the pride
of their owners. I am sorry to say
that the march of this deadly scale
lias only been arrested hero and
there, notwithstanding we havo been
continually warning the people and
advocating the use of the celebrated
lime sulphur wash which we know
will kill scale if properly made and
properly applied at the right
strength while the trees are in the
I havo round several orchards in
the country (somo of them large)
that wore badly Infested with the
San Jose scale and on the verge of
destruction. I also found other kinds
of scale but not plentiful enough to
do serious injury.
I wish to mention one more seri
ous pest, the round-headed apple tree
borer. This is one of the worst ene
mies of the apple tree. The larva -is
cylindrical in shape, and first bores
into tho soft sap wood by making a
circular tunnel, when it works into
the harder wood, and after nearly
three years it emerges usually sever
al inches above the point of entrance.
These insects destroy hundreds and
probably thousands of apple trees in
Wayne County annually.
The Green Aphis or plant lice was
unusually plentiful in many or
chards last summer and did consid
erable injury to tho fruit and foliage,
causing the curling or crumpling of
the leaves and the clustering of
small, deformed fruit.
Several other injurious Insects
might be mentioned, such as black or
brown aphis, seed chalcls, leaf roller
and fruit worm, etc., but I think this
will suffice for the present."
Experience in Fruit Growing.
Mr. Bullock was followed by J. W.
Lewis, who occupied a period on
" Experience in Fruit Growing." He
said he was exceedingly glad to be
here. He called attention to the pos
sibilities of raising apples in Wayne
county and what could be accom
plished by co-operation. He told of
how he first heard a lecture given by
George T. Powell in 1893, in New
Y;ork City. After this he read farm
journals and then went on father's
farm, it being his start as a fruit
grower. The following year Mr.
Lewis said he set out 40 trees of 16
varieties, planting a few trees each
year. In 1904 he joined tho Wyo
ming Horticultural Society. In 1905
first saw San Jose scale and in the
following year it was discovered in
our orchard. Was tho first to use a
traction sprayer. Sprayed for cod
ling moth and scale in 1907. The
inventory at that time showed a to
tal of 457 trees with an average age
of about 14 years. They occupied
about 11 acres of ground and pro
duced 2,177 bushels of apples which
sold at an average of .757 per bushel,
or $1,G48.G5. During that year
cherry, plum and pear fruit, repre
senting 225 trees and occupying two
ncres of ground sold for J498.28,
making a total of ?2,14C93 for tho
year. In 1908 tho sprayer was out
of order, consequently Mr. Lewis
said ho sold all tho fruit for the year
for $725.85. Set out COO apple trees,
making a total cost of f 1, 320, 80. The
net cost of trees that year was $201.
70 or 30c per tree. In 1909 the in
ventory showed 707 bearing trees of
an average of 12 years, occupying
17 acres of land. They produced 3,
78G bushels of apples that sold at an
average of $1.12 per bushel or $4,
238.25. This Is nearly $G per tree
and over $240 per acre. From 430
peach, pear and plum trees he re
ceived $1,311.23, representing a
growth of 21 acres; total receipts
for fruit during 1909 amounted to
$5,549.48, Thinned quite extensive
ly and used tho box as a package. In
1910 set out 800 apple trees with
four new varieties and 400 peach
trees. Planted corn in the apple or
chard nnd potatoes In the peach or
chard. Would never do It again.
Would receive better results If vice
versa. Tho same number of trees
this year as last gave, a total retuhi
of $4,700. In 1911 we set out 300
peach trees. The same number of
trees as in 1909, only two years old
er, gave a total return of $6,743,20;
a little over $0.00 per tree of $321
A great deal depends upon tho
selection of the tree as to results ob
tained, continued Mr. Lewis. Get a
tree that you are suited with. You
will make a success with it. That's
half of the battle. When going to a
nursery to purchase fruit trees al
ways manage to get first choice.
Some have been taking tho rest, or
remainder after tho first choice right
along. Set trees out from 30 to 40
feet apart. A first class paying ap
ple is the Fall Pippin. It is of high
quality and after you have eaten one
you want another. The Wagner
variety is a high quality apple. Don't
get too many sweet apples, tho mar
ket for them is limited. The Stay
man Winesap is a new variety and a
good apple; however, go slow on
now varieties. Dr. Funk, one of the
best authorities on apple trees,
claims that a tree a year old is worth
a dollar and a tree 30 years, $30. Of
the GG0 apples in his orchard, Mr.
Lewis said he lost only two trees.
One was by root blight and tho other
being accidentally cut down by mow
ing machine. I cannot urge you too
strongly to thin out your fruit. The
trouble with a great many is that
they do not thin enough. When a
tree is thinned there is less labor
connected with it than when It Is
not thinned. Apples can be picked
to better advantage. Thero would
bo less apples to tho bushel and you
would receive just as many bushels.
It Is numbers and not bushels that
you pick. Thin any time. Some tell
you to thin at the time of the Juno
drop. Thinning saves the vitality of
After Mr. Lewis finished his instruc
tive address, Chairman Hull inquired
if thero were any that desired to ask
questions that they could do so at
T. B. Clark In setting out young
trees how long should mulch remain
around the roots of tho tree and
when should it be removed in the
Mr. Lewis Sow clover and tim
othy for mulch. If season has prom
ise of being dry, cut in June to July
1st; If it looks as though It would be
wet, let it grow a little longer. No
necessity to mulch too closely. Keep
out some little distance. Remove
mulch in the fall.
W. W. Baker Would you advlso
the use of a commercial fertilizer?
Mr. Lewis Yes, sir! Do all you
can for a tree; It will return to you
all you ever pay out for it.
Surface Tells How to Prune.
The chairman stated that at this
time dues would be received by the
secretary. In the meantime Dr. Sur
face demonstrated to tho audience
how to trim an apple tree by cutting
off different branches. He first cut
off tho top to give it an open head.
A few other small limbs were pruned
to make it symmetrical in shape,
telling why certain limbs should be
cut and where to cut them. "An ap
ple tree should bo given plenty of
sunshine and air to ripen and color
the fruit." Ho then took the same
tree and pruned it for a peach tree,
cutting several limbs therefrom. Dr.
Surface told of a peach tree on his
farm that in a single year furnished
528 inches of new growth. "Nover
burn out a tent caterpillar nest. It
is the poorest way to kill the pest. It
is not only injurious to the tree, but
starts a diseased condition, that soon
er or later will mean that the tree
will have to be cut down and burned.
Dr. Surface displayed a specimen of
a tree which had been so affected.
It had tho appearance of a black sub
stance or canker, was irregular in
growth and covered a surface of sev
eral inches on a comparatively small
area of wood. Tho best way to kill
the tent caterpillar is by spraying
with a solution of two pounds of ar
senite of lead to gO gallons of water
to which is added one-half pound of
concentrated solution of sulphur-lime
to 50 gallons of water. The leaves
are tho digestive organs of the fruit.
Tho only way to brace a tree is by
inserting a screw eye In one limb and
fastening it to another limb by the
aid of a galvanized wire. Prune when
tho tree is dormant, and It strength
ens it, but if it Is pruned when
growing it stunts its growth. " How
Are We to Obtain Better Fruits at
Less Cost?" Quality is tho most im
portant subject before us, said Dr.
Surface. Don't caro what it is.
Judge C. B. Whltmer, of Washing
ton, D. C, wanted five bushels of fine
quality of apples. Told him ho
might got some in the stores, but if
he wanted to buy high quality ap
ples to got in correspondence with
W. J. Lewis, of Pittston. He paid
$3 per bushel box for them and wrote
mq that they were cheaper than If
they cost 50 cents per bushel. Why?
Because the apples were uniform in
size, had the color, flavor and wero
guaranteed by tho grower to bo as
represented. In selling apples keep
a list of your customors. Growing ap
ples requires more care, knowledge
and patience than any business I
know of, stated the doctor. Mater
ials are used to-day to spray trees
that are killing them. Some manu
facturers are putting on the market
spraying fluids that are not adapted
to apple trees. Do not use oil
sprays. Representatives of these
concerns went to Governor Tenor and
endeavored to have mo removed
from ofllco as State Zoologist, claim
ing that I was trying to kill their
business. I examined tho trees, made
a careful study of oil sprays and
know that their use is detrimental to
tho tree. Hero are somo apples that
were grown right here in Wayne
county by ono of your members (W.
H. Bullock) and thoy nro tho best I
ever saw. Baldwin, Spy and Kings
were shown. Apples for the market
must all be of a certain size. One
great requisite In growing fruit is
how to grow quality in it. Another
is how to get the size. Different
sizes would hurt the trade. Apples
of the same variety must bo of tho
same size. Sizes mean grading. It
Is cheaper to size on the tree than
on tho sorting table. To size, remove
apples that will come in contact with
each other, leaving a space of four
Inches between them, or a distance
about the width of the hand. Dr.
Surface said that he used his hand
to thin stone fruit, such as peaches
and pears, while to thin pome fruit
he used a pair of shears. To get size
wo must prune our trees. Proper
prunhing is essential. Whatever
stimulates tho growth of tho tree
pushes the growth of the fruit. Ni
trate of soda is good. Can get more
substance in the fruit by cultivating.
Cultivating pushes tho growth of the
tree. Much also depends upon color.
Color stands for quality. The West
ern growers are obligated to grade
according to color. Iron in the soil
gives color. Apple trees do bettor
planted on tho side hill than In the
valley. Tho soil is different and the
altitude Is what is needed. Prune
your tree so as to let in tho sunshine
and air if you want color. Thero is
the worm, codling moth, bitter rot
and canker to gunrd against. Tho
division of Zoology, under my de
partment, publishes a quarterly
which gives you considerable infor
mation, which you may have free.
It tells you all about spraying, prun
ing, how to treat pests, and numerous
other items of value." Dr. Surface
then explained in detail the manu
facture of lime-sulphur and tho little
instrument used In getting the prop
or strength. Tho grower can mnko
his own solution. It would cost to
buy from $'5 to $12 per barrel, while
if the orchardist chooses to do so he
can manufacture It for $2 per barrel.
In this section the black blister mite
affects tho leaves. It causes them
to curl up and they become diseased.
The leaves are the vital organs of tho
tree. Spray to kill blister mite.
Considerable care should bo exer
cised in handling fruit. Not more
than 10 per cent, is allowed In the
West. They handle their apples
more carefully than the farmer
handles eggs. Apples must not bo
damaged. If they are they will not
sell. Pack your fruit intelligently
and honestly. It Is not necessary for
you to box your fruit in order to sell
It. Your society should co-operate
in every feature, selling, shipping,

tTiiusunl Grit of Dying Man.
C. Westervelt, an employe of tho
West Shore Railroad, was badly in
jured near Esopus, N. Y., last Wed
nesday night. He was walking over
the freight train on which he worked
when he fell off, a car severing one
of his limbs. Ho rolled down an em
bankment and after coming to rest
managed to bind up his wound with
his overalls. Ho then climbed back
to tho track, and taking a torpedo off
his lantern, stopped passenger train
No. 13. Ho was taken aboard the
train and conveyed to Kingston,
where ho died. Westervelt showed
an unusual amount of grit and pluck.
DEAFNESS "CANNOT BE CURED
by local uppncauuus, as they can
not reach the diseased portion of the
ear. There Is only ono way to cure
deafness, and that is by constitu
tional remedies. Deafness Is caus
ed by an inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian
Tube. When this tube is Inflamed
you havo a rumbling sound or Im
perfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is tho result,
and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will
be destroyed forever; nine cases out
of ten are caused by Catarrh, which
is nothing but an Inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
Wo will give One Hundred Dol
Iars for any case of Deafness (caus
ed by catarrh) that cannot be cured
by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for
