WENATCHEE, WASHINGTON, SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11
WAS OF GREAT
Fruit Exhibit at Portland Attracted
Much Attention and was Means of
Widely Advertising the County to
People from the East.
H. A. Graham, who had chaige of
the Chelan county booth at the Port
land fair, returned to Wenatchee today.
He was pleased with the treatment
he received at the hands of the people
of Portland and the ofncal3 of the
exposition. Mr. Graham believes that
the exhibit at the fair did more good
in an advertising way for th* county
than any other scheme that Jias ever
been tried. The mammoth apples
that were exhibited during the entire
time of the fair and the beautiful ex
hibits of other fruits that were on view
in season called attention of visitors
iiom all over the world to Chelan
county and made them ask questions.
Mr. Graham states tl at every day
he would be complimented by strang
ers on the excellent showiug made by
the county. Fruit growers and buyers
from eastern states were attracted to
the exhibit and because of the extraor
dinary size and fUvorof the train
>uad« a number of purchases of Weuat
chee traits through Mr. Graham.
Californians, after viewing the We
natchee display 'of fruits, confess*d
themselves bea ten by Chelan county.
The only fruits in which they excell
ed were oranges and lemons. Their
apricots, supposedly a California fruit,
could not begin to equal *hose grown
in Chelan county.
The last day of the fair one of the
men in charge of one of the county
booths in the California building came
to Mr. Graham and asked for a sample
lot of apples. He stated that his
reason for asking the favor wbb' that
when awards were made he would Dave
a great deal of explaining to do. With
Wenatchee apples to show as a reason
for his not obtaining more awards he
felt that the people of his district
would understand conditions better.
Mr. Graham gave away a great deal
of fiuit at the fair. The greater part
of it went to people trom the east and
south. One large apple weighing 3.">
ounoes was sent to a high official in
Japan upon the request of the manag
er of the oriental building.
At the conclusion of the fair the
greater part of the exhibit was sojd to
Portland commission men. A few of
the largest apples were sold to private
parties at a large price. Five dollars
was secured for the largest apple , ex-,
