SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 22, 1m THE HUTCHINSON NEWS, PAGE ELEVEN. PAYS TO SPRAY THE ORCHARDS •Proof, Toko a Look at MM Farms Down Noar Arlington. PRUNING PAYS, TOO Orchards Whoro Trait Ware Carat! for Yield Profitably Others Worthless. Tli* splendid results from pruning and spraying apple trees Is well shown tn a demonstration which the Reno County Farm Bureau has conducted on some of the farms In the vicinity of Arlington this year, according jto R. W. McCall, county agent W. W. Swing, one of the fanners In that vicinity who cooperated In the experiment, has proven to tals satisfaction that pruning and spraying are very necessary to profitable orcharding. This year he both pruned and sprayed 225 of his apple .trees. Most of his trees were given five applications of the.spf ay. The Missouri Pippins were given one more spraying than' the others. ,Hls trees yielded .(00 bushels of first grade apples and 400. bushels of "seconds." The spray prevented any infestation of blotch and prevented the apples from becoming wormy. Shows the Dlffsrsnos. In speaking of his success with spraying his apple trees, Mr. Ewlng explained that last year in order to show the difference In the production of trees which were sprayed • with those which were not, he left one in the center of his orchard without .being sprayed. That tree only' produced tw6 bushels of Inferior, wormy apples, while the other trees around It yielded from eight to ten bushels of good sound apples. Mr. Ewlng keeps his trees prnn ed because he believes that trees which are allowed to grow rank are not as disease resistant and will not produce as much fruit as those that are properly pruned. Destroy Worthless Ones. J "Orchards that are not sprayed, Should really be destroyed for they are breeding places for worms anil diseases which spread to other orchards In that vicinity," declared .Mr. Ewing. "If a horse gets the glanders, the state reulqres that It be killed, because the disease will spread to other animals and to mankind. An infected orchard Is Just as much a menace to the orchards In that vicinity «s the sick animal Is to the other animals." Increased Production. H. Warner, another Arlington farmer, who cooperated In the spraying experiment, sprayed 175 apple tree* this year. The trees were given from three to five applications ot the spray. His trees produced 300 bushels of first grade apples and 400 bushels ot seconds. He found that the production ot his trees was greatly Increased by the spraying. It. W. McCall believes that the difference In the production ot the two orchards was due largely to the fact that iMr. Ewing pruned his trees and applied more applications ot the spray. Check Disposal of Stolen Goods Here Under a new plan to stop, disposal of stolen goods of all kinds the city commission has drawn up a new ordinance, repealing ordinances 755 and 1187. The new ordinances will prevent pawnbrokers, chattel loan brokers, junk dealers, second hand stores, second hand clothiers, and used auto accessory dealers from acting as a "fence" In disposing of. stolen goods. It provides annual license fees as follows! Pawnbrokers, J25; chattel loan brokers, $25; Junk dealers, $25; second hand dealers, $5; second hand auto accessory dealers, $5. It further requires that pawnbrokers gtve a bond ot $500; chattel loan brokers, $500 bond; Junk dealers, $200 bond; second band stores, $200 bond, and second hand auto accessory men, $100 bqnd. Comply With Request Of the Exchange Club The city commission has decision to follow the suggestion of the Exchange club, recently made, and will re-mark all ot the city streets, at the Intersections, as s6on as funds are available for that work. The commission Is also asking that all houses shall be properly numbered. Autematlo Musle. A mysterious moaning noise recently alarmed the residents ot a London hotel at night.

Oil and Gas News A BIG INCREASE IN ACTIVITY IN HUTCHINSON OIL DISTRICT The Hutchinson ell district Is soon to see a big Increase In activity. Where there arc now two wells actually drilling It Is quits possible htat within a week or ten days five more walls, and possibly six mere, will find the walking beam in action and the sand line flopping In the air. Irwin and O'Halloran Drilling. The Irwin Is now drilling and the O'Halloran Is making new hole. Flans are about completed to start the Salloe, se 3-22-Gw, northwest of town In the Sand Hills. Plans are being matured to also start up again In tin Short, ne 13-23-Sw, west oLtown, along the New Santa Fe Trail pavement Will Drill at Thlessen. The officers ot the ThieBsen, sw 26-21-5W, north ot Medora, are checking things up and hope to begin drilling there very soon. The men who financed the Mohr well have money raised and will drill deeper there if the right sort of contract can bo made to do so.

Axel Lubetkln, in charge of operations In Kansas for the Travis Oil company of Tulsa, Is at work cleaning out the Williams well, se 6-2S4w, south of Haven, and getting Teady to drill there. He was seeking a new drilling line last night in efforts to get going again down there. If all ot these tests get started oil activity will compare favorably with earlier days in the year when a bunch of tests were being drilled. As long aa the bit keeps on going down there Is hopo that oil Is to be found, or else this deeper work wouldn't be done. Consequently when the walking beams at the rigs are "walking;' It shows activity, the "boys" are nusy and there are promises. HOPE TO START UP AT THE JOHANSEN. Directors of the Midland Oil company, drilling tin* Johansen well, are considering plans whlcn will enable the work to be started there again in a short time, It Is hoped. This test Is down .about GOO feet. It is located a halt mile north of the Welch well. SAID THE WELCH MADE 175 BBL9. ONE DAY. It Is learned, during one of the tests made at the Welch well, some weeks before the Miller was drilled In, that It showed 175 barrels production one day and that tho average for the week was 160 barrels a day. TI1I9 was when the .pump was put on a thirty Inch stroke Instead of the twenty-four-inch stroke. It Is learned that tho "head was never pumped off during that time. Pretty good well, that Welch. MILLER WELL IS "DOING BETTER;" It Is learned that an oil man who knows and who Is real authority recently remarked, after making an Investigation that tho "Miller well Ic doing bettor." When the Miller was drilled In the oil was coming In as It was being swabbed out at the rate of about 31 barrels an l.our. LAY OFF OVER SUNDAY AT THE IRWIN WELL. The crews will likely lay oft over Sunday at the Irwin well, ne 21-20-6w, being drilled hy Morgan Brothers for Stamey and others. The test Is down somewhere below 3060 feet and It Is hoped to get It down to 3150 or below before lowering the casing and shutting off the water. cover the Slick horizon, but the others are liable to he picked up at any time. When one of the deep wells, shows a small slump all that Is necessary to bring back production Is to turn tho drill one or two screws" in the deep pay, moving up production In many wells from 1500 to above 5000 barrels per day. MOflEY-COMING IN FOR SALLEE WELL, The money is still coming in for the Sallee well,.so. 3 -22-6w, northwest ot town, and the men in charge hope to be able to start up again in a short time. ARCTIC HAS IT ALL OVER AFRICA IN THRILLS, SAYS MAN WHO CHASED GIRAFFES IN FLIVVER FINANCES FOR THE SHORT BEING ARRANGED. The finances for the Short well, new. 13-23-8, west of town, are pretty nearly In shape to make it possible to start up there again. It Is hoped to drill down to tfie Welch horizon, which should be within 250 feet. There are great hopes tor the Short. RUNNING PIPE TODAY AT O'HALLARON WELL. The crews failed to get started yesterday running the five-inch string at the O'Halloran, nw. 28- 25-6w, southwest ot Costleton, but It Is hoped to run thut pipe late today and tonight and then soon to be drilling ahead below 3275 feet. ARE SURE TO DRILL DEEPER AT THIESSEN. The'Thiessen is sure to be drilled deeper and the "finishing touches" are being made in connection with the plans which will get this work started again. This hole is down a little bit below 3500 feet. ALCORN WELL IS •GETTING OEEP NOW.

Just cruise along the Alaskan coast In a small schooner, and you'll got all sorts ot them dodging wiialeB and lassoing polar bears, according to Sidney Snow. And as Sidney chased giraffes all over Africa in his dad's flivver, ho ought to know. Young Snow, son of H. A. Snow, curator of the Oakland Museum of Natural HlstoVy, Is Just back from breaklug through polar ice, filming and bagging big game specimens. And In addition to the sport ot the chase, his trip included a narrow escape from death In the floes when the vessel caught fire: dls- covory of the bodies of Stefnnsson expedition victims; breakage of a crankshaft while the ship was in the Arctic wilderness, and several close calls from having the little schoonor ground to bits by polar Ice. They Got the Bear, Snow's Jaunt- to the Arcto was made on the fur trading schoonor Herman, commanded by Captain Louis L. Lane, veteran of northern waters. The broken crankshaft forced the Herman Into St Michael for repairs, and it was two months before the trip could be resumed. "Don't tackle it," warned Alaskans when tho Herman's crew announced it was going-on north. This year's Ice was tho worst in a decade." But tho Herman and Snow were out for thrills. And the first day out of St. Michael's they commenced getting them. A huge polar bear was sighted. Captain Lane snared it with a lasso, then threw other ropes over It. Then the fun began, with the bear fighting, snarling and diving to escape. It finally was overpowered and drawn alongside. A submerged net and a derrick landed It on deck. Solve Karluk Mystery. Cruising along, the Herman came to Herald Island, and Lane and Snow paid it the first visit of any sallormen in 10 years. And this visit cleared part of one of the northlnnd's mysteries—the fate Upper left—a pet Alaskan bear takes a turn at the camera. Upper right— the schooner Herman. Lower left—Sydney Snow. Lower right — fourteen -year -old Eddie O 'Brien at the Herman's wheel. of the men lost to the' world when the schooner Karlnk of Stnfaiis- son's expedition was lost In 1914. Skeletons of four men gavo mute testimony to their fate. Thoy had frozen to death, for there was food in their supplies, and their guns had ammunition. It was a thrill to clear tho mystery. It was a thrill for Snow to take possession o£ the island for the United States. And it was a thrill, as the filming of big game continued, when a whale Snow was filming from a smaller boat, suddenly attacked the small craft. Captain Lane harpooned the monster Just as It was about to crush the boat wit a Its tail. "Say. this Is my Idea of real lite," says Eddlo O'Brien, H, who went along as a steersman. "Africa has nothing on the Arctic for adventure," avers Sunw. "It you feel too blase, let me prescribe a trip to the northland." Twenty carloads ot cattle. 1,000 head, arrived at Norwich the first of the week from Texas and were unloaded for the Klncald brothers. These cattle average about 600 pounds each and will be wintered on the Klncald ranch north ot Norwich. It is one of the largest shipments of cattle Bought by a Kingman icounty cattle raiser recently, j After cutting a matured crop ot corn last August, on his place north of Kingman, J. E. VanKirk sowed the field to rye. This week he is displaying some fully Jointed stems ot rye headed out since it was sown In August. Mr. VauKIrk says his chickens have been turned in on this rye since It came up and if it weren't for that he believes the whole patch, would be headed out. >, MATTHEWS TELLS OF 300 BBL. WELL. B. II. Matthews, oil man, ia back from Wilson county where he has a block ot acreage near the Bushfield well ou section 17-27-16e, Wilson county which is now on the pump and making better than 300 barrels a day at 1509 feet. The well is a mile east ot Buffalo, Kas. Mr. Matthews is a cousin of Gov. elect Ben S. Paulen. He Is hoping for good things in that district.

Fall listing should replace fall plowing in parts ot the state as the soil Is likely to blow. Ground worked in the fall and left in a rough condition over winter is usually improved in physical condition and the rough, surtace helps to catch and hold snow and prevents soil blowing. Better crops are usually grown .on'fall plowed or fall listed land. All classes of livestock do better when handlod In small groups instead of large ones. This Is particularly true in the case of falj pigs. Sort them according to size into as many groups as your equipment will permit. When sorted In this manner they will all make more rapid and more economical gains. There is a general Infestation ot the Hessian fly In the wheat Ilelds ot Kansas this year. Members ot the department ot entomology ot the Kansas experiment station desire to learn the extent and importance of this Infestation. In order to do this, the department will examine any wheat sent In and report the results to the sender. Fifty to 100 plants are sufficient for the examination, and the information should he furnished as to the date of planting and the methods of handling the ground. Now is a good time to go through your flock and cull out prospective winter boarders. Pullets that now show a lack of vigor or are not fairly well matured by this time are not likely to be able to produce eggs to pay for their feed. A few concrete walks and some concrete feeding floors soon prove their value during rainy weather. Where this work Is subject to wagon traffic It. should bo six Inches thick, but otherwise will give good service it made four iu..-..o thick- Four cubic yards ot concrete win p-it in a three foot walk, one hundred feet long. Twenty-four sacks of-.oeinent, two cubic yards ot sand and™hree cubic yards ot pebbleB or crushed rock will be enough material for a walk of good quality.
