Tens of Choicest Fruit Sent to Pert

George Farweil, who now has charge
of the Chelan county exhibit at the
Portland fair is in the city to collect
several tons of fruit for exhibition'
He has spent several days in the valley
and will leave for Cashmer? tonight
to continue his work there. He will
return to tiie Fair the middle of next
Iv Mr. EarweU's opinion the exhibit
is doing wonders in advertising the
valley People from the south and
east who see Wenatohee fruit are a
mazed. Dozens of inquiries are made
daily asking about the fruit and the
place where it was grown. The big
red apple aie what catch the eye of
most of the visitors aud are the sub
ject of much favorable comme f. A
number of Seattle people have told Mi 3
Farweil that their eastern friends have
returned from the fair enthusiastic
over Wenatchee fruit. It is conceded
by all of them to be the best fruit
display on the grounds.
•'The principal object now, " said
Mr. Farweil, "is to send us large fruit.
"We want large fiuit of every kind and
must have it to compete with our
neighbors. One large peach or pear is
of greater value tlian a plateful of
smaller ones. We must have them as
a means of attracting the attention of
the hurryirg visitor who has an eye
only for the unusual.
" .Venatchee's exhibit of apples is the
best on the grounds. No other exhi
bit can even approach it. Although
Yakima has the largest single peach
exhibited, we have a greater number
of largo peaches than they. Several
exhibitors have a limited quantity
of fruit that is larger thau that dis
played at the present time by Che
lan county, but I feel sure that I will
return to the fair with fruit that will
beat themall."
