Notes or transcript:  “It certainly can’t be an ill wind that kills bugs and worms. According to William H. Barnes, secretary of the Kansas state horticultural society and acknowledged to be the best posted horticulturalist in the west, the winds which recently blew across Kansas and Missouri alike, were of great benefit to the fruit interests of the two states. A theory has been advanced by M. J. Rhue, a big apple man in Northeastern Kansas, that the sand carried by the recent winds was death on orchard pests. – Oregon Sentinel.”
