THIS RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUX TELEGRAM, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1911.
Mrs. Rowland Tells How She
Raised Fruit Which Won
Her the Prize.
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

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.
"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
', "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
' "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

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

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.
"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.

ment of the Success of Cuticura

" 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

i They were recalled again and again
but did not . respond always in the
number in which they appeared and
this gave the audience the good for
tune to hear the "star" in sok Mr.
Joseph Thomashevitch, of the Imperial
Opera house, Moscow, this singer be
ing the possessor of a splendid bari
tone, and singing with pronounced dra
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.
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.

PITTSBURG, Nov. 22. 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
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.
