   Our Wausau trial orchard will, if 
aIll goes well, yield three thousand 
tiushels of apphls oin the seven acres. 
There is also bloohm enough for one 
hundred btlshels native plums but it 
is never safe to count profits on plums 
at Waisan.--t h     fruit ripens slowly

frosts. 
   The Med ford orclhard promises a 
 fair crop and there will he apples at

 apples hlt no grower who sprays and
