Lesson From the Fruit Fair.
Lewiston. Oet. 20th, 1896.
Kmtob Teller— I observed that
Hie prizes for the l»esl peaches, jiears
ami grapes, were awarded to Lewiston,
at the Spokane Fruit Fair. These ure
three of the greatest fruits in the world.
Excellency in these fruits must imply
perfection of Hav.ir as well as the quat
ities of texture and form and color.
The exquisi'e flavor of these fruits is
not approached even by the products
of tropical climates. The grape ap
proaches perfection in only a few
favored spots in all the world and it is
generally supposed to tie growing
nlowly inferior in the old vineyards In
accordance with a law of nature that
lias ever made the end follow the be
ginning of ail things. The natural
pest of the grape are slowly causing its
destruction where it once was perfect.
If in the Lewiston valley there is a new
Held for the culture of the perfect
g rajs*, the value to the world of the
little Eden of perfect climate cannot lie
The perfect peach is not found where
it grew in the past. Perfection was
attained in this delicious fruit some
years ago, and its decadence is now
more than a conjecture of eonuoiseurs.
If the new soil of your fui.i valley with
tin* fragrance ot a mountain atmo
sphere distilled by per|ietu:il sunshine
can produce the perfect peach we are
spared an oilier blessing.
The peur, witli I lie most delicate
11.ivor of ail the fruits, did it ever reach
pcifcctioli in tile harsher or Ironical
climates? All fruits are perfected by I
cultivation and selection of soil und |
Climate suited to the improved variety.
The ; Lewiston Valley is the home of
the |>ear and if the |«*rfeet fruit lias
iievci been grown it may Is- grown
where tlie grand Idaho originated, in
Hie Lewiston Valley.
No oi lier product of tile soil compares
in value with tile perfect fruit. Tlie
market mr (he liest is without limit in
pi'n...... extent. The mines of your
mountains are not a more certain item
of wealth than the orchard lands of
tlie Lewiston Valley. The skill of the
orelmrdist is available to all to stay
the ravages of diseases and pests if
they should not lie resisted by a cli
mate that is congenial and imparts
native vigor to tree and vine.
It was a surprise, when m> con
ditions were not tamiliar , e, to
learn that the mod per. -t |s-urs,
peaches and grapes in a e great
Northwest were grown i o air nos I
unknown little valley. Now that I
liavr observed the verdure that makes
me know that springtime has lusted
nine months without drouth or frost to
check luxuriant growth and develop- '
ment ot perfect garden and orchard
products, the wonder in a measure I
ceasca. Perpetua! sunshine troui a

I that
| wen
ky as clear as tlie face of a polished
mirror, through ail these mouths of
growth give perfect color to tlie fruits
that bend low tin* limbs of all the
trees, and ri|>eiis the fragrance of sum
mer tiowers to wine that flavors tlie
fruits of the Lewiston Valley.
There is vigor and health and life
for mail in tlie atmosphere of tlie
mountains and, rcthied, this elixir
surely extends to tills favored valley.
This climate approaches perfection.
Not only the pears, peaches and grape
excell those of other countries but the
less delicate fruits'are |>erfeet too. Tlie
less relined flavors and textures art* at
tainable over wide areas and the taste
or the prejudice of the awarding judges
may influence tlie distribution of
prizes, but where the finer fruits are
pertect the more common verities can
not lie inferior. Tlie small Iruits and
cherries ot tlie Lewiston Valley are
perfect, too, in color, texture and
flavor, where du re air, perpetual sun
shine and never-varying moisture is
assured for nine mont hs of spring.
Man loves an endless springtime.
The seasons of the year are silent re
minders ot the progress or life. To
prolong tlie flowers and (lie verdure of
the new year is like {prolonging the
days of childhood and youth. All
men feel an instinctive longing for a
lovely home in a climate like tins of
tlie Lewiston Valley where the beau
ties of nature can he engaged in such
a perfect degree—where fruits and
flowers, green trees |and grassy lawns
are for tlie poor as Well as tlie rieh.

Hon. W. B. Heyburti, of Sho
shone county, accompanied by
Hon. Jas. Slioup, brother of Sena
tor Geo. L. Shonp, of Boise City,
arrived in Lewiston Sunday and
remained until Tuesday morning.
These gentlemen are just complet
ing a tour of the state, having de
livered addresses in nearly every
county in the State in behalt ot the
republican party. They report the
outlook very favorable to the elec
tion of the entire State ticket.
Monday evening Mr. Heyburn
and Mr. Shoup addressed a large
audience at the court house, on
the issues of the campoign. Mr.
Shoup's address, consuming one
hour and thirty minutes in its de
livery, was a masterly effort. He
covered in detail the material issues
presented to the voter, and pre
sented them in a forcible manner.
He presented convincing argument
for the lertoration ot the business
like policy of the republican party,
which gave confidence to the busi
ness man and prosperity to all.
Judge Heyburn lias long been
recognized as one of Idaho's bril
liant public men, and his reputa
,1 ES.
tioit was sustained in his address
Monday night. On the tariff ques
tion, he delivered a characteris
tically strong address, drawing
vivid pictures of the sad effects of
tbejopposite policy of the democrat
ie parly. Mr. Heyburn has long
been recognized as a leader in the j '
fight for silver, and he stated Mon-!
da>f that his convictions on the
subject bad not been shaken. He
was still a bimettallist, he said,
but not of the Bryan sort. He did
not Ixdieve nor at any time con
tended, he said, that this nation
had the power or moral right to '
v i ll- ev
dictate to the commercial world its
financial nnliev To open our
hnancial policy. to open our,
mints to the free coinage of silver, i
and to thrust the product upon the
world at an inflated value would
be assuming the position of an un
qualified and tyrannical dictator,
and would meet with the resent
ment of all the great commercial
nations. Disaster, unparalled in
our nation's history, would follow,
and national honor and commercial
standing would be sacrificed. The
republican party has been, he said,
the unceasing, untiring, consistent
friend of the white metal, and to
the wisdom and patriotism ol that
party, which has filled w th sacred
ness so many important trusts,
tie would entrust its welfare and
that of the people.
