He says: "About six years ago I began to reclaim waste mountain land by chestnut growing, and at present have fully 300 acres and nearly 100,000 trees. The orchards produced this season about 300 bushels. The trees grafted on one-year old sprouts, from stumps of native trees, begin to bear when two years old, and each crop is found to be sweeter in flavor and less woody than those which are produced at first. In other words, the older the trees the more like the native nut in taste they become. "I have expended considerable money in this industry and am convinced it will, in a short time, become a most profitable investment. I have the orchards amply protected against forest fires, and while the insect pests are most formidable foes, I am quite certain they, too, can be successfully combatted." K. R.
