M. BRAZIER, Directors CORRECT, attest: (SEAL) tion, especially considering our increasing population. Thinking these things over, it would seem to me that one could not make a mistake in starting a young orchard right here in our old Jefferson county hills; providing, of course, one has patience and perseverance to stay with it through the' discouragements of drouth, rabbits, borers and diseases. To be sure, all is not smooth sailing even aftetrees become of bearing age, was clearly shown by last year's complete failure; and expenses are great in caring for an orchard; but after all worry and expense are the returns are good and we have an 'apple not excelled in flavor by many localities, and far better than any from the Pacific Northwest. As to our present prospects for this year's crop, they have never been better.

I believe if one had a record of the weather for the last 10 years, they would find that the past winter had been almost as cold as the average winter. All the fore part being dry, made it seem less cold that it really has ibeen. I have cut open many buds and found them all bright green clear through, and advanced scarcely at all. Mr. George McCarty, an apple man living near Lecompton, said last Saturday that he believed apples could go through zero weather yet without any injury.

course he meant at present without further weather. Mr. J. P. Farrabee, a neighbor a mile' east of here, himself an apple man since 1890, says he never saw better prospects.

Even peaches, though the bud3 are swelled and they are very sensitive to a few warm days, are still all right. From word that came from ex-Senator B. E. Wilson, who has been making an extended visit in California, we may' well be extra anxious that we have a crop, as he says oranges have ben badly damaged by the freeze there. The bark on many trees popped open from the freeze and many trees will be cut down.

Final vouchers of Fred Swoyer; Admr. of estate of Mrs.

Mary O. OZAWKIIB STATE IB At Ozawkie, State of Kansas, at the close of business on the 18th day of March, 1922 About Apple Growing in Jefferson County. Perry, March 20, 1922. Editor Independent: Realizing fully there are several men of this county more competent than I to write about apples, I have perhaps delayed my promise to you for such an article longer than I should have had I been better prepared myself. Knowing this I have made extra visits to orchard men of more experience, and so the vision of my article, if -tbere be any, comes rather from them But thinking, as I write, one of the most striking things about the apple industry was brought to any mind by an article in Successful Farmiing headed "Problem" and asking "If the bearing apple trees of the United States decrease 24 per cent in p.

decade, how long before we must do without apples?" Then followed a statement of statistics showing that there had been such a decrease and also that re-setting had been much neglected in almost all parts of the country except the Pacific northwest. Mr. Will Oilver. one of the Perry nurserymen, tells me there has been an awakening in the eastern part of our country, also, just of recent years. Mr.

Marlon Glyn, apple man who lives north of Grantville, tells me the decrease in Kansas has ben much greater than the average for the entire U. having been 60 per cent in the last ten years. If any one doubts this statement, let them, if they te 40 or more years old, look back 20 or 25 and they will remember, that scarcely a farm in eastern Kansas but what had an old home orchard. Now how few and getting fewer. I have before me as I write a year book of the Depart-men of Agriculture for 1918, and in looking for the relative importance of apple raising I find it places apples in the ninth rank In the total value of farm products, being exceeded by wheat, oats, cotton, corn, hay, barley and, oh, shame to us all! by tobacco! If all people were as fond of apples as myself the demand would be so great that in time they would rank third and be exceeded only toy corn and wheat.

Adding to these statistics on apples, resetting has been so neglected that percent of bearing trees, must become less for a few years, regardless of much resetting goes The commercial supply of apples has been, added to from a rather remote region by. prohibition. 'Way up in the mountains of North Carolina were orchards from which the apples, were nearly all used to make apple brand', and which after prohibition went into force were turned Swoyer, deceased, were filed showing that full and final distribution of fi nal assets were made and adminlS' trator was Resources n- nu discounts, 131,627.68 hs on real estate. 20 979 70 Lo Lo unsecured 519.99 other real estate owned 358.53 Bank building, Furn. and fixt'rs, $1626.40 322640 United States bonds on hand 1,550.00 Bonds to secure state deposits Guaranty fund with State bonds 1,000.00 Cash items and clearing-house items, 25660 Cash and sight exchange, legal reserve, 24.565J8 Taxes Uncollected Total $195,011.93 Liabilities Capital stock paid in, 20.000.00 Surplus fund 3,000.00.

In the Valley Tails Vinidcator two or three weeks ago some one advocated the' formation of a big baseball league for flaying Sunday baseball. Judge Bender's attention was called to it and he said "They will be violating the law if they do it and are subject to i)rosecution." He added that he presumed they were taking the position that, the case having been appealed from his court to the supreme court and that court not yet having passed upon it, they could igo ahead, but they were taking chances in doing so. Better taka the suggestion made by the Independent form leagues in convenient districts and get a half-holiday mid-week granted in the towns and have games which everybody can attend with self-respect and respect to the law. Elsewhere in this paper is a fine article from the Vindicator about bbservance of ibe law in regard ito booze drinking and playing, and we presume that paper will take the same ground in regard to Sunday baseball or is that a "bay horse of another color?"
