Mabry Challenged- It" is strange to me that when a man is doing his duty in a quiet, peaceful way that he should be wantly, maliciously and offensively attacked with out cause. It is not my dispos ition to want publicity any more than the good of the com munity in which I live shall de mand, but such remarks as have been made by Thomas Judas Mabry about me as Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce de mand my attention in self de fense. It will be well for the man to remember that owning a small interest in a newspaper does not entitle him to insult the public and I propose to pro tect myself from the nasty lit tle remarks of this thimble brain puppet. With my election to the Sec retaryship of the Chamber of Commerce, I have tried to do my duty, and as far as I know my actions are acceptable to that body of gentlemen (T. J. Mabry (excepted), and to be at tacked bv a peanut politician through a local news pamphlet is a little more than my disposi tion will stand for. fade into infignifi...

4 COVER CROPS FOR ORCHARDS Many 8lde8 to Question of Best Wa to Supply Vegetable Supply Matter of Irrigation. The subject of the beet crop to use for supplying vegetable matter to our oils In young orchards Is one that has many sides. We think there Is no doubt that In most of our orchards, particularly where the land has not been In alfalfa, a cover crop of some legume la very desirable. Just what cover crop shall be used and how thla shall be handled mint depend on the soil, age of trees and other factors. For the young orchard we believe that the best system Is to grow whichever leguminous crop can best be grown in the district between the trees during the latter part of the growing season. Where the seed can be starttd and a crop grown successfully, red clover Is probably as good as anything, though Canada peas, soy beans, vetch, crimson clover, etc., are all good where the conditions are right to pro duce plants of growth. We think the crop should be grown n the latter part of ...
