"Chelan county is geographically located in the center of the state and is traversed its entire length by the Great Northern railway. All the coun try now under irrigation is being cut into five, ten and twenty-acre tracts, which are fast being occupied by fam ilies. "While being but 150 miles from the coast, the climate is delightful. The Cascade range of mountains, ly- Comforts Blankets AGENT FOR BARRINGTON HALL STEEL-CUT COFFEE ing between, completely change the climatic condition from that of the coast, and while the altitude is but from 650 to 1,500 feet, snow lies from four to ten weeks during the winter. The rainfall is light. The thermometer ranges from zero in winter to 100 degrees in the heat of summer, but the weather is never subject to sudden changes. "Being surrounded with snow-cov ered mountains, the nights In sum mer are always cool and invigorat ing. Hailstorms, cyclones and sun strokes are unknown. "The chief product of the county is fruit, consisting principally of ap ples, but it can be truthfully said that all fruits and vegetables adapt able to a temperate climate grow to perfection. Chelan county grows the best colored, best flavored, most per fect, greater per cent marketable and largest yield per acre of any apple district in the world. Fruit growers who have lived here for more than 35 years testify that an apple crop failure has never been known. "The 1908 fruit crop sold for the enormous sum of one million dollars, with only one-tenth of the total acre age in full bearing. "Thousanda have asked how it is that the claim is made that five or ten acres will keep a family? "First—A higher state of cultiva tion is obtained. "Second—The family does the work itself, consequently the sales for the year are its own. "Third—lt has no large machinery and harvesting bills to pay. "Fourth—No granaries to fill for seed and feed the coming season, like in other farming. One horse, a wa gon and a cultivator are all that is required. "Fifth—Ten acres with 100 trees to the acre is 1,000 trees; 1,000 trees with five boxes each is 5.000 boxes; 5,000 boxes at $1 each is $5,000. and the leading varieties have yet to reach as low in value as $1 per box.

RURAL DAYS AT BIG FAIR Seattle, Sept. 24. —The three days" harvest home carnival at the Alaska- Yukon-Pacific exposition which open ed today, attracted large crowds of farmers from all parts of the state and from several of the adjoining states and judging from the attend ance today the three days devoted to the particular tastes and interests of the rural visitors will prove a big success. The carnival opened today with a rustic parade in which many of the participants carried the vege tables, fruits, etc., with which they competed for the prizes offered. The Agricultural building had been espe cially decorated for the occasion and presented an interesting and attrac tive picture. The feature for tomorrow will be | a grand barbecue in the middle of the day. followed by country sports in the Stadium in the afternoon. The sporting events will include such favorite games as climbing the greased pole, catching the greased pig, three-legged races, potatoe races, egg-and-spoon races, pie-eating con tests and corn-shucking contests. In the evening there will be a big barn dance in the Washington state build ing, which has been decorated for the occasion with pumpkins, corn shucks and vegetables. The women will be dressed in gingham dresses, sun bon nets and similar garb. On Sunday a grand religious reunion will be held in the natural theatre. Rustic preachers will deliver sermons and there will be singing of many of the old favorite hymns and anthems, dear to the country folk. Wed Aboard Train. Spokane, Sept. 24.—Edith Kling stuber, of Milford, Pa., and John F. Davidson, of Colfax, Wash., were married on an express train running 60 miles an hour on the Spokane & Inland Empire system near Moscow, Idaho, the ceremony being performed by Rev. R. E. Koontz, pastor of the First Methodist church. The con ductor, brakeman, candy-butcher and passengers in the chair car witnessed the ceremony and assisted in shower ing the couple with wreaths and bou quets when the train reached Mos cow. "Just a fancy we had," said the bridegroom when asked why he chose the flyer route, adding: "We couldn't hire a balloon or a diving bell. That reminds me we met on a train and it was an appropriate finish to our little romance. Dr. Koontz tied the knot good and fast and there's no danger that either of us will kick over the traces. Sure, I'd climb the tallest pine in the state or slide down the side of a mountain in a dish pan. I'd rather have had a quiet wedding at the home of the old folks, but some one had to start the train wedding business in Ida ho." The Claibourne 718 Madison St., Seattle, Wn.

Sept. 23.—This is a most interesting date for star-gazers and others interested in astronomical science. It is not only the day of the Autumnal equinox, when the sun crosses the celestial equator going south, and the winter half-year be gins, but it is also the date of the op position of Mars, when that planet is at its minimum distance from the earth, 58.000,000 kilometres. Some scientists have suggested that it might be a good time for Mother Earth to try ihe experiment of signaling to her nearest neighbor. Aside from all other considerations, the success of such an experiment is manifestly impossible at this time, for when the two worlds are nearest together the earth is invisible from Mars. This is because of the fact that at the time of the opposition the sun and the two planets are in line. Thus, when the earth passes between the sun and Mars, the bright hemis phere being naturally turned toward the sun, the other one, turned toward Mars, remains plunged in darkness and is consequently invisible. It would, therefore, be vain for the Martians to try to discover something on the earth at this time. Even if great electric lights should be placed on every square yard of the whole terrestrial hemisphere turned toward them, they would, nevertheless, be unable to discern the illumination, for they would be looking in the di rection of the dazzling sun.
