Idaho Jan 28 iaoe 10 * AU * no ' Jan - •*' 1882 - 18, (Continued from first page.) Fresno was not included in the list of stations /or 1883, and the report given above was for a subsequent year. From the above table it will be seen that the Snake River valley Is second to no place In the list, nor is this a matter of slight importance. It is no doubt, owing to the excessive atmos pheric humidity and its neutralizing effects on the sunshine, together with the lack of sunshine that has resulted in the fuilure of the foreign varieties of grapes in the Atlantic States. The thought may occur to some upon examination of the foregoing table, that the humidity of Los Angeles and San Diego is greater than at Cincin nati. Then why should grupes prove a success in the former places and a failure in the lutter. While it is true that the humidity is shown to be greater at those two points in Califor nia than lu Cincinnati, likewise the previous tables show a less degree of cloudiness and more sunshine than in Cincinnati. Not only this, but there would be a more equable temperature at Los Angeles and San Diego, during July, August and September. At Los Angeles, for 1889, there was not any rainfall; at San Diego only 04. of au inch, while at the same time at Cin cinnati there was 9.12 inches. No doubt there would be many days dur ing this rainfall when the atmospheric humidity would amount almost to sat. uration. Those who care to investigate this question at length will find inter esting articles on the subject by James 8. Lippincott, of New Jersey, in the reports of the Department of Agricul ture for 1802 and 1803. The following from the pen of Mr. Lippincott illustrates very forcibly the atmospheric conditions that often pre vail in the Atlantic States, and which render even the native grapes a fre quent failure: The first half of Sep tember, 1865, uppeared to be very un propitious for the grape, mildew and rut having done their worst with the native vines, and the foreign under glass alone remained, on which their destructive agency could work. From the first to the fifteenth the absolute and relative humidity were excessive, and the fourteenth was among the most oppressive ever remembered and recorded by the writer, frequently aris ing to saturation. Though the heat was not in excess, the abundant moisture rendered some of the days painful to endure, the feeling being, at times, that of immersion in a steam bath. Our black Hamburg Grapes which had not already ripened under gloss, were dissolved in a mass of rot tenness in consequeuce of suffocation in this vapor-laden atmosphere." An examination of the foregoing ta bles demonstrates the fact that we have here in North Idaho and Wash ingtou a valley comparing in climate with the interior valleys of California and capable of producing all the finer varieties of grapes there grown The question may be asked, "How successfully have your vineyards been? Fo- while your climate may fiigure out all satisfactorily in theory, yet practical success is that which counts." In re ply it may be stated that grape culture as a commercial enterprise is yet in its infancy, but so far as tested in small plantings for many years has proven highly successful both in quantity and quality of produce. Even in southern grape growing regions much of the success of the vine yard depends upon the choice of suitable location and as the northern limits of successful grape culture are approached the question of location becomes one of still greater importance. As might well be supposed, our suuny, dry atmosphere has given us immunity from mildew and other fungus diseases that have been so destructive to the grape interest in other sections. In so far the grape has flourished without an enemy, and if planters use due caution to not introduce phyloxera and other obnoxious pests, there is no reason why the present happy state of affaire should not continue. The only obstacle whatever seems to be in the possibility of the vines being Injured by the cold every fifth or sixth winter. To obviate this difficulty some growers resort to laying the vines down and giving them a slight covering of earth; others take the chances of the winter. Even in the middle grape growing regions of France the vines are sudject to occasional freezing, and in the Atlantic States it is necessary to give protection to many of the native varieties, and when the planting and pruning bus been done in reference to this purpose the cost of protection is but slight, and when this has been afforded there Is not a fruit or cereal crop In the Pacific Northwest more sure than the grape crop on Snake River. Unlike many of the other fruits that perish within a few days after ripening, the early varieties of foriegn grapes will remain on the vines in perfect condition after having ftilly matured for two months, thus affording a long season for marketing. We have not the data at hand to determine what would be the average date of the first killing frost; the past fall it occurred on the night of the 10th of November. It Is safe to conclude that If a suitable site for the location of the vineyard has been made, the grapes may be allowed to remain on the vines until the 1st of iv • uu »um» umu me ist or November, when such varieties as the White Muscat, if stored in a cool place, will remain in good market condition the most if not the entire winter. There has not been any attempt (to the winter's knowledge) to cure raisins or manufacture wine, unless on a small scale for domestic purpose; so we are unable to state how well adapted the fruit may be for these purposes. Nor does it seem probable there will be much occasion to resort to such means for disposing of the crop when we take into account the great extent of con tiguous country to be supplied with table grapes. In quality, our black Hamburg and other tine table grapes have been pro nounced by people from California equal to ttiose grown in the most fa vored regions of that state; how could it well be otherwise, when they ripen in a temperature as high as at Sacra mento, S'in J.:se, Los Angeles, or San Diego, with less humidity in the at mosphere and more sunshine than most of those places. It may be suggested by some that the high temperature and dry atmos phere which here prevail while highly conductive to-grape growing, might be detrimental to other fruits. Space will only permit a brief reply, and that is, that when the deficient rainfall lias been supplemented by irrigation the horticulturist who desires to make a specialty of either tierries, apples, peaches, nectarines, apricots, prunes, plums, cherries, or pears can engage in the enterprise with the full assurance of success. The Snake River Valley has already achieved a wide reputation for the fine quality of the peaches, and the pears will compare favorably with those produced in the finest fruit grow ing regions of the world. The purchase and absorption of "American," the vigorous exponent of American principles, by The Chicago Graphic, has given a further impetus to the remarkable growth which this now celebrated illustrated weekly of the West has experienced. —Ladies who experience a sense of weakness, and sometimes lameness of the back should use Dr. J.
