PAGE SEVEN. APPLE CHAMPION GIVES INTERVIEW n . e .no da I its Mrs. Rowland Tells How She Raised Fruit Which Won Her the Prize. 1 1A (Palladium Special.) NORTH YAKIMA, Wash., Nov. 22. "Other people could have as good luck atvI, for the soil Is here, the condi tions are right, and the Yakima Val ley country is the greatest In the World to raise not only fruit of all fcfnds, but other farm products are ob tainable In abundance and are raised with very little effort." This statement was made by Mrs. Ella D. Rowland of the Zillab section of the Yakima Valley, who, on Nov. 4, at the New York Land Show, was aw arded the first prize $500 in gold for the best twenty-five box apple dis play any variety grown anywhere. Mrs. Rowland's apples Winesaps scored. 982 6-6 points out of a possible 1000. While her exhibit competed with not onfcf the finest samples from all other districts of the Yakima Fruit tfly, ier were samples of the best producer In many other sections of the country thus, without a. doubt, the RowJaxV Winesaps proved to be the equaljof any grown anywhere -a fact, which the Yakima Valley had al ways clalihed and as a clincher of the fact lb may be .stated that at the New York'Land ShoiRobt. Johnston, of Pruitvale, nothermportant part Of the great Yakima Valley,, scored sec ond, with flfg.7 plBp.jm'a'krng tfce con jjtest between Yakima Valley fruit rais ers and feature vof) that great show, Both of these winners own-high-class orchards located in territory, which, only a few years ago, like all other sections of this valley, was a dense mass of sage brush giving ample proof of the argument that Yakima Valley will and does produce the best fruit that grows. "There Is. an abundance of just as good land, all through the valley as this I have, and just as good results can be gained from It, with any sort of care of orchards," continued Mrs. Rowland. "My husband and I came here eigh teen years ago from Kansas," she said. W' raised hops while our young or- i hards were growing and as soon as hey were along far enough we aban loned the hops. We paid 40 an acre for the ranch njhlch my three orchards are locat ed. The one bearing the prize win ning apples Is on just a little higher ground. Its elevation Is about 800 feet, and la considered by fruit raisers in &i Bisection to be an Ideal orchard. J Call Herself Novice. "Really, r feel that I am sort of a oalee at the business of fruit raising, as jT have given the ranch my direct attention only since the death of my husband, ifl. M. Rowland, last June. ; "Yea, I am happy over my luck," stnljod Mrs. Howland. "It was more thitf I had anticipated, for we had to Bake tb pack In such a hurry that I had no idea that I would win any prize at all. ', "As the apples were being gathered we put aside enough to make 66 boxes from this number we selected the it-box exhibit which won the prize. " "Tho packing, of course, was a strong point in my favor, as the pack ing counted. It was difficult to secure experienced packers at the time when I deeided to send an exhibit. I secured tho assistance of Miss Lena Milton, a young lady who had had some experi ence, and Mrs. J. D. Laughlln, whose husband haa a 66-acre ranch adjoining mine and who is administrator of my late husband's estate. It Is needless to aay that their work was well done." This particular orchard which pro duced the prise winners, is ten years eld was set out In 1901-2. It is locat ed., two miles northwest of Zillab. and If miles south of North Yakima, which city is the center of the great Yakima Valley. ' "I expect to realize between $2,200 and $2,600 this year on apples from this ten-acre orchard. The best year we ever had was in 1909 when we rea lised $2.86 a box and had a large yield. Of course everybody knows that the season Just closed was off for apples, bat we had afi ne, large crop, our or curds yielding other varieties than the Winesaps. While I have never set price on the'orchard land, I am told by near-by app -ranch men that it Is worth from $1200 to $1500. an , acre. Io the orchard 'producing the prize-Winning Winesaps there are about 675 trees, 80 per cent of , which aire Wine- and the remainder mixed varie ' concluded Mrs. Rowland. fo show the adaptability of the soil rmay be stated that Mrs. Rowland raised other crbpa successful! po tatoes grew large and plentiful,' as did grapes, melons, corn, etc. Mrs. Rowland says she will not In vest in any. more land, but that she will probably keep what she now has, and with her little daughter.. . Miss Veda, will continue her residence on the ranch.- . ;,,.. r The elaborate .aliwer up, an addi tional prise, was. donated by A. H.

Mrs. Green arose early and was at the National Park Banfe for two hours' work by 9 o'clock. At noon she. was. in her office on the sixth floor of No. Ill Broadway with her son. Colonel Green, who had just presented her with a black hand bag, one which she can carry over her wrist, to take the place of the old-style bag she has carried for the last half century. "I see the papers have me only 76 years old well. I suppose they thought it would please me, being a woman, to have a year or so nipped off, but I tell you 1 am proud of my age and see no reason why everybody shouldn't know I was born in 1834. I've got the spunk of twenty men, and I feel five years younger than on my last birthday. Why, I have just saved one of the most expensive funerals In New York. This person I cured, as I have cured many others, simply by getting her interested again in life." Mrs. Qreen was asked if there was not some good work she had done in the past year that she was willing to make public on her birthday anniver sary. "I am opposed to bragging," she said "and if I told you of my gifts they would not be gifts at all. One way to given money is to make a big show, and such a gift is not a gift in the eyes of the Lord. I might tell you of a school for boys and girls in this state which I have helped with be tween $300,000 and $400,000, and that Is all I will tell you about." In conclusion she said that she in tended to continue in active business for at least another decade. BY E8THER GRIFFIN WHITE. Much had been said of the imperial Russian Court Balalaika orchestra be fore its appearance in this city at the Oennett last evening, but no adequate idea had been given of its peculiar charm and musical appeal, and that the latter was . persuasfve was testi fied to by the overwhelming applause that followed each number and by; the frequent recalls, M. Andreeff, itjv'dlwc tor, being mpst obliging and i-4flptmd-ing sometimes with a repetiUouand again with a different composition. The extraordinary effects achieved by the balalaika in the ensem'ble may be native to the instrument or incident to its musical manipulation, but how ever that may be, the fact remains that it lends itself not only tb "the presentation of the folk music of Rus sia but ajso to the modern, exemplified on last evening's program by the Puc cini number the aria from "La Uo heme." and by the brief Tscbaikowski, "In Church," the lattea giving the strange, melancholy impress possessed by this great musical genius not only in his sustained compositions , but through their excerpts. The interesting aspect of th$ pro gram however, was in the interpreta tion of the folk songs of the CDUittry to which the balalaika is nativef th$se being given with a realistic '- cbarm hard to define, the verve of the "Danse ' d' Auvergne," a daoce ' in wooden shoes being . no' less ftppeal ing' than the poignant charm otyTfte Young . Princess Walked Aboui S'e dangled a Golden Key," or that! 'of : "As a' Juicy Berry's Floating on a Sweet Sea." . ' i. . . The attraction of this pari; of the concert was enhanced by this aftj&tng of Russian airs and folk' 0l8Mjife quartet of singers from the. ijQrial opera houses in St. Petershu(jftifd Moscow, all in the picturesq negative costume, and given with great musi cal and theatrical eclat. "These latter appeared in quartet, double, and trio numbers, their voices blending admirably in those seeming ly bizarre effects unusual to the lay and musical ear of this country be cause unfamiliar with the folk music they interpret that music full of sub tle minors of curious musical accent and in a language with dominant consonants. Mysterious. "That was a mysterious robbery the other day," said Smith to Jones. "Why, I don't see what mystery there was about it," remarked Jones. "The detectives caught the thieves the same day."

AYEAR FOR ECZEI3A ' A Remarkable and Convincing State- ment of the Success of Cuticura Soap and Ointment in theTreat " ment of the Pain, Itching and Burning of Eczema ...;.'! the undersigned, cannot give enough praisato the Cuticura Remedies. I had been doctoring for at least a year for ecietna on my foot. I had tried doctor after doctor all to no avail. When a youn? girl I sprained xny ankle three different tirces. paying littla or no attention to it, when five years ago a f mall .spot shewed upon my left ankle. 1 was worried and sent for a doc-tor. Ha aid it was eczerya. He drew a small bone from th ankle about the size of a match and about an inch long.- Tire small hole grew to about the size of an' apple, and the eczema spread to the knee. The doctors never-could heal the hole In the ankle. The Whole foot ran water all the time "My husband and ray sons were up night and daj wheeling me from one room to an ether in the hope of giving me some relief. 1 would sit for hours at a time in front of the fireplace hoping for daybreak. The pain was so intense I was almost craay, la fact. I would lose my reason for hours at a time. One day a friend of mine dropped In to see me. No more had she glanced at my foot than she exclaimed, 'ilrs.Tinnepan. why m the world don't you try the Cuti cura Remedies!" Being disgusted with the doctors and their medicines, and not being able to sleep at all, I decided to give the Cuticura Soap and Cuticura Ointment a rtj. After using them three days that night I siept as sound as a silver dollar for eight long hours. I awoke in the morning with but yery little pain, in fact, I thought I was in heaven. After using the Cuticura Remedies for three months 1 was perfectly restored to health, thanks to the Cuticura Soap and Ointment. I will be sixty-four years of age my next birthday, hale and hearty at present." Oigned)Mrs. Julia Finne gan.3234 Hcbert St., St.Louis, Mo.. Mar. 7,'l 1.

Mri Thomashevitch's voice was, per haps, the strongest in the quartet, the soprano, Lieubow Orlova, while having i a most engaging personality, and a lyric voice of unusual range, not po sessing as much vocal magnetism as the contralto, Olga Scriabina, who was a mezzo-soprano rather than a pure contralto, but whose more .Muscovite type of countenance added to the ef fect of her native Interpretations, her voice being of brilliant timbre heard ' to best advantage in a trio with the two male voices. i Mr. Pogoreloff, the balalaika soloist, in two compositions by Andreeff, gave evidence of not only individual talent but an exhibition of the versatility of the instrument and also of tbe range of the gifted director's musical ac complishment. In no orchestral numbers, however, were the ensemble possibilities of the organization shown with greater eclat than in "Song ofthe Volga Boatsraen," whose infinitesimal shadings, diminish ing and swelling from forte to pianissi mo and from the latter again to forte was: as smooth and undulating as a satin ribbon swaying in a breeze. The strange, sad but perfect harmonies of this arrangement and its delicate nuances of tone filtered through the medium of the balalaika orchestra, was a wonderful exposition of the art of music and poetry. This orchestral organization, nor the i singers which accompanied it, can not be measured by the ordinary rules of musical Judgment, for a variety of reasons, chief of which was the unfa miliarity of the instruments, of the folk-songs and lore which it was pre senting, of the language in which the vocalists sang, cr of the schools which the latter represented. It remains, however, that the Ayhole concert was given with finished artis try, the like of which will not be heard again soon in this city. Among the curious instruments used was the gooseley,, an instrument cor responding or in the class with the dulcimer, made up of thirteen keys, like those of a niauo, and a harp-like j arrangement of strings on a table surface.

At an esti mated cost of '$2,975,000, the Pennsyl vania lines west of Pittsburg are elim inating grade crossings at 'Cleveland. Ohio. ' Two milion - and ' sixty-three thousand dollars of this expenditure will be met by the railroad company. Since l!H0 the Pennsylvania Rail: road system has avoided grade cross ings in all new construction work and has been doing away with those al ready in existence as rapidly as possi ble. Many millions have been spent in this work with the result that 673 grade crossings were eliminated from the lines east of Pittsburg between January 1. 1900 and September 1, 1909. Three hundred and eighty-five of these were on the lines of heaviest traffic between New York and Wash ington, and Philadelphia and Pittsburg. Their elimination involved the eleva tion or depression of tracks in Jersey City, Newark, Elizabeth, Bristol, Tren ton, Philadelphia. Chester, Wilming ton, Baltimore and Washington. The remaining - grade crossings on these lines are dispersed over 574 miles of road and are, with few exceptions, at light. The track elevation work in pro- gres at Cleveland covers a distance of about two and one-eighth miles. In this territory there are now sixteen streets Intersecting the Cleveland and Pittsburg railroad tracks at grade. The abolition of all these crossings will be effected; fonr of them by closing the streets, .and" the' other twelve by rais ing the tracks and depressing the streets. Solid floor- steel bridges sup ported by masonry abutments on the street lines and steel columns at the curb lines will be used. In connection with this the passen ger and freight facilities at Euclid av enue will be re-arranged. The pas senger station will be move.d slightly but will remain on the present level, that it, a little above the street Plat forms with, shelter sheds will, be er ected at the new track level, and will be connected with the station by a subway and stairs.
