Page For J I _ _ m THE MONROE MONITOBc--Momu, Washington Friday, Ja-.ary 14, 192/ ..... [ ....................................... SPRAYING AND PRUNING Be Not the First by Whom the New is Tried. Nor Yet he Last to Lay the Old Aside-- Clean Up the Old Brush. A great deal of effort has been put forth by Snohomish county farmers in attempting to clean up by spraying and by pruning, count- less numbers of old trees of the va- rious kinds of tree fruiCs. The gen- eral impression of folks in the coun- ty is that tree fruits are not a very }Jrcfitable crop to raise, with the ex- ception, of course, of possibly swe,.' and sour cherries, prunes and pears, and these have theiT limitations a: far as the number that can profit- ably be handled is concerned. A great many of the county farm- ers have come to the conclusion that it is much cheaper and more satis- factory to take out a large number of the trees in the old orchard and either plant trees there that are profitable or set the ground out tc }ome crop that will give a satisfac- tory return. Probably, except in a few cases, abcut all the tlec fruits that are necessary to the average farmer is enough for his own use; a few ap- ple trees of the varieties that do well in this section of the state, a few plum trees, some sour cherries and weet cherries, a prune tree and a few pear trees. If the farxaer is not a berry grower, then of course a few berry bushes of the varieties de- aired should be added. This whole 1Planting need not take up a very large space. With a few tree of ome such scheme as noted above, a very little time need be given to eeping them well pruned, sprayed and feilized, and as a result of that, he very best fruit will be had ,from the trees, 4++ + + + ++ ++ + '*+ "t * PERSONAL * 4 4 k 4,  k  ,(k k ,Ik 4 4k ,IF k ,b "b k 4 4 " Mesdames C.

Melvin P. Ryner and Children. Great Had Hr-Trlgger Temper Turgenev found hlnmelf Involved in futile arguments with his young friend, which only ended in sullen tiffs. Thus we hear Tolstoy shouting with a flash of his maddening steel- gray eyes "I stand In the doorway wltl| a dagger and a saber and I say, 'As long as I flee, no one shall enter here.' That I cail conviction, And youyou're trylng to hide your real thoughts from each other and you call that conviction." Turgenev, in the thin falsetto of rage, gasps Irrelevently: "Why do you come here? This isn't wl|e|'o you be long. Go to Princess So-and-So." "I don't have to ask you where to go, do I? Anyway Idle talk won't tm'n into conviction because of my coming." "Darling Tols;ny," says a friendly witness, trying to make peace, "d,, calm yourself. You know how he es- teems and h,ves you." But Tolstoy, with dilating nostrils. only gro-,'b: : "I won't stand for it! He does'It to teas,, my. It's oil purpose that he's pa,"'m" up and dmvn and wagging his d,,m,,cratic haunrhes."--From Yarino- lu:&y's "Turgenev." Might Have C'anged History o? America The first congress of the American t'tlI1]PS WaS convened In New York city about one hundred sixty-one years ago. The purpose of the convention was to consider the stamp act, Gre- ville's obnoxious scheme of taxation. Tim Ruggles of Massachusetts wa chairman of the congress, where dele- gates from nine states met. In its two weeks' session the con- gress dopted a "Declaration of Rights," wrltten by John Cruger; s "Petition to the King," by Bob Living- ston, and a "Memorial to Both Houses of Parliament," frozfi the pen of James Otis. Had the powers that misruled Eng- land at this time paid more attention to the words of these earnest men his- tory might have taken a different turn but the figurehead on the English throne and the self-inflated ministers end coxcombs, who served hhn, were deaf to the distant thunder of discon- tentand "lost a worhL"--Chicago Journal. Big B "Now, gentlemen." said the pres- ident of the Wisteria Suburban .Golf club, "how soon shall we lay out an- other links and move into it?" "Didn't we move three months ago?" asked the chairman of the greens com- mittee. "We did, but they are putting up an- other roK of apartments on the West side, which entirely blots out the sun." "How much money is in the treas- ury ?" "Oh, a couple of millions. We made real money the last time." ."But is this golf?" inquired a duh in the rear. "My dear boy" replied the president soothingly, "we no hmger live in the suburbs to play golf; we live here to make money in real estate deals by moving from one course to another." "She Bends to Fight" A ten-year-old girl cmue to one of the Indianapolis branch libraries the other day to get a book for her big sister. For a long minute she studied for the name of the book she wished. Then a triumphant smile came to'her face. "It's 'She Bends to Fight,'" size announced, triumphantly. The librarian had to tell the child she didn't have a book by that name. She suggested she call up her home by telephone and check up on the name of the book. She called up the home and came back with this name of the book, "She Stoops to Conquer." --,Indianapolis News. MayFalr's Romantic Days Mayfair, which la now one of. the most fashionable residential districts In London, was originally a plot of land set aside by King Edward I as a fair ground, but later a complaint re- ferred to It as "one of the most pes- tilent nurseries of impiety and vice, and one of the most notorious occa- sions of riot and disorder." Under James II's license the May fair was held, "not for trade and merchandise, but for music, di-lklng, gaming, raf- fling, stage plays and drolls." The gal- lants of the day built houses so as to be in reach o the fair, and May- fair became the center of London's oclal life.

Tracy, national secretary, with headquarters at Bismarck, North Dakota, was in Monroe the first of the week to arrange with the Com- J,ercial Clul5 lor is alt|.Imtlon w, he organization.
