Woodland Daily Democrat (Newspaper) - February 1, 1902, Woodland, California 187 WOODLAND CALIFORNIA SATURDAY EVENING FEBRUARY 1 1903 FARMERS INSTITUTE QUESTION BOX LEADS TO THE DIS CUSSION OF MANY TOPICS The Lectures ofProfessors Fowler Twight and Jaffa are Both Interesting and Instructive The afternoon session of the insti tute on Friday began at half past one oclock J W Anderson presided The first subject taken up was Hybrids and Resistant Stocks and Professor E H Twight was the lecturer Among oilier things he said that In selecting the best varieties a study of the soil is the first consideration No matter how good the variety planted failure will be the result unless a proper soil Is also selected The professor mention ed all the varieties of resistant stocks and described the nature of the soil in which they will thrive the best No stock Uiat will not show a resistance of fifteen should be trusted Some Boils are too sandy and dry others too wel while others are of such a clayey character thatthey bake The compactness of the soil Is the thing that affects planting The degree of compactness depends upon the proportion of eiMca and elay The rupesta variety of vine will not do very well In a soil too compact Where the soil Is heavy the hybrid of riparia and rupesta should be planted The amount of moisture Is another consld The rupesta will stand more moisture than the riparia Rupesta will do very well in light soil un less the sot Is subject to drouth The rupesta does best In gravelly soil An other condition to be considered is the fertility of soil The rupesta and its hybritla will do better in a poor Boil than the riparia and its hybrids Experiments have been made in crossing nonresisting vines and resist ing stocks but tlie results have not been eutirely satisfactory The professor explained at consider able length the various methods He showed charts Illustrating these grafts The herbaceous cleft graft does not do so well in the United States as it does In Europe The Hovarth graft Is a delicate one but a very high percentage of success ful buds baa been obtained by this method The Salgiics graft ia an easy one and with little care 05 per cent of good buds can be obtained The bes Eon graft is done on old wood In the Clarac graft a bud from young stock la put in young stock cane The Vouzon graft has given good results The Inids are taken from wood of a year The professor explained the opera tlon necessary In making these grafts at great length He also explained how It is possible to change the vari ety of the grape without losing a crop Buds can be prepared in fall sap wood half sap wood or no eap at all In tying the graft care should he taken that the work Is so done that the buil will not dry out Mr J B LaRues paper on the al mond industry waa next on the pro gram but the chairman announced that hehad been notified that Mr La jRue is ill with the grip and might not able to attend Professor Jaffa was next Introduced discussed the Food Value of Im it for Live Stock The amount of nutriment In fruit is comparatively small with the nutriment of grain feed In fruit there is not more than one and jf half per cent of nitrogenous matter In the ease of grain feed It is often as high as 10 and 12 per cent A cer tain amount of nitrogenous matter Is desirable but not an excess In 10 poxinds of wheat there la 114 pounda water In the same weight of fresh fruit there Is about Ibs of water Five times as much fruit as wheat Is required to obtain the same amount of elements When the fnilt Is dried the same amount of atarch can be obtained from an equal amount of grain A good ration for a milk cow is about 12 pounda of alfalfa 12 pounds of dry hay and B pounds of bran Prunes may be substituted for the bran but 15 pounda would be nec essary Linseed oil must be added to perfectly balance the ration One hundred pounds of fresh apples only furnish as much nutriment as 20 pounds of hay 34 pounds of wheat straw 24 pounds of corn la pounds of oats or barley 16 pounda of wheat 17 pounds of oats or 9 pounds of cotton seed meal The disparity between all these feeds and watermelons is even greater In the dried fruits there Is a near approach to the nutritive quali ties of grain etc Experiment Is the only way of testing the physiological value ot the various fruit feeds In stances were given showing the food value ot dried figs for fattening stock for market The question box wag next opened and Professor Fowler read and an swered most of them The following are some of the queries and answers the orange do well commer cially in Yolo county There Is but little differ ence between quality of Orovllle Colusa Yolo and Portervillo oranges the silo successful anywhere in California It has been successful wherever It has been tried There are GOO silos In successful operation In the state citrus and deciduous plant ing be overdone if the grower does his work intelligently and markets his crop with good judgment Fifty per cent of the orchards in California are not bearing profitably does the attendance at Woodland Institutes compare with the attendance at other places and interest Is in creasing In Woodland every year It is not so large however as In some other places is the name of the white mildew on our grapes what is the rem edy and when best to apply it name la oldlum The rem edy is dry sulphur and should be ap plied about the blossoming time A second and even a third sulphuring may be needed according to conditions of mildew and climate calcium carbide ever been used with success In California against phylloxera If so how much should be applied to a vine Should it be put In a hole at one side of the vine or dis tributed around the vine carbide has not been successfully applied Calcium carbide will not sink into the soil as carbon bisulphide will for the acetylene gas is lighter than tho air There are oth er reasons why the calcium carbide has njt been successful Is the best resistant stock for vines In this soil are many soils In Yolo and even in tho region of Woodland The weather tables as well as the sol A FIREMANS CLOSE CALL I stuck to my engine although ev ery Joint ached and every nerve was racked with pain writes C W Bella my a locomotive fireman of Burling ton Iowa I was weak and pale with out any appetite and all run down An I waa about to give up I got a bot tle of Electric

Price 50c For a good share balreot or sham too go to tarbw tbop a PRICE FIVE CENTS must be considered So this Question cannot be easily answered is Rupesta St George Rupesta St George la one of the best of the resistants for our vine areas It should be planted on the dryer areas as it Is a dry rooter and will not stand wet feet us something about cow peas Have they been tried in Cali fornia have been tried As a green manuring crop they have not been very serviceable because they can be raised only in the season after tho frosts are over They dont like our dry seasons is the belter to plant the Tllton or the Royal apricot Tiltongrows and bears well and quite regularly in Kings county where it originated In the San Joa quln valley the Tilton bears more reg ularly than other varieties The fruit is fine In size and duality are screw worms and how ire they destroyed oil spray will destroy them the Jordan almond thrive as well here as the Hatch variety think it will but I have no ex perimental knowledge kind of poison bait will rabbits readily eat in winter know of no successful way of poisoning bait for rabbits that would not endanger other animals Hounds will do more to drive the rabbits away than anything else Professor Twight next briefly dis cussed Sprays and Their Applica tions The professor gave a classifi cation of Insect pests For codlin moth apply Paris green In a manner to leave a fine coating For scale we must have a spray that will destroy by contact The kerosene spray the lime sulphur and salt spray will do this The latter will also reach some of the fungus diseases The main point is give this spray careful preparation Two hours of cooking Is necessary Much care must be exercised in pre paring the kerosene spray The emul sion of soap water and kerosene should be applied warm Copper salts may be applied against several dis eases of the vine Dissolved lime and copper sulphate should be mixed cold Ammonia Is added but great care must he taken not to add too much as that would result in burning the trees Dry sulphur is used against some fun gus diseases and also against Insect pests If mixed with lime it adheres better to the leaves Professor Fowler closed the session with a glowing tribute to the possibil ities of California He declared that hogs and poultry can be raised quicker and cheaper here than In Kansas and Missojirl and yet we annually buy of those states pork and poultry products of the value of eleven millions of dol lars SATURDAYS SESSION The members of the institute were slow in assembling this morning It waa nearly half an hour after the ap pointed hour before the institute was called to order The attendance was not so large as it should have been Professor Fowler immediately de voted his attention to the question box The following are some of the queries and his answers thereto is the best work on cattle and me best work on poultry published for distribution by the agricultural de partment of the bureau of an imal industry and the experiment sta tion bulletins of some of the states Anyone who wishes a list of poultry bulletins may have one If he will drop D T Fowler a postal card asking for

Convened Wednesday The Purpose IB to Resume Further Consideration of the Irriga tion Problem A call has been Issued by C Bush secretary of the committee and B P Huston secretary of the chamber of commerce convening the Irrigation committee at the office of Huston Joslyn on Wednesday February 6th at 3 p m This committee Is com posed of fifteen prominent citizens It was appointed several months ago to Investigate the whole question so far as It affected the people of Yolo county It did Its work well but the general opinion seemed to be that its functions ceased when a certain promoter se cured options on all the water rights heretofore acquired In the county These options have lapsed nnd it Is ev ident that if a thorough and perfect Irrigation system is ever developed in the county it must be done by local capital and enterprise The committee will therefore go to work with renewed energy beginning where It left off when the prospects for union of all conflicting elements in the Irrigation problem seemed to be so bright The Importance of the meeting next Wednesday cannot therefore be over estimated The work of the committee will be watched with extraordinary in terest WORKING
