men of the county tlrs week.
Varying estimates of th crop
were made right after the heavy
freeze at Kaster, hut experienced
orchardmen always point out that
the "June drop" must be taken in
to consideration before placing an

The average orchard will have
from :t," to 40 per cent of the aver

"Apple growing is a science, and
is becoming more complex every
day," he pointed out, as he discuss
ed various diseases with which
orchardmen are flow confronted.
"Growing apples has become so
