Apple culture has become of vast
commercial importance in the north
western states and provinces and is
increasing so rapidly that, in the near
future, in connection with other
fruit it will rank second only to
wheat growing. In fact, expert hor
ticulturists estimate that it will
eclipse the latter industry in less
than ten years. This would mean
anywhere from $60,000,00 Oto $75,
--000,000 yearly in Washington. Ore
gon, Idaho and Montana and British
While it is true that favored dis
tricts in eastern and New England
states and Michigan and Missouri
can raise apples just as good as are
grown in the west, those older parte
of the couutry probably will be
rrowded out of the business. The
reason for this is that apple-growing
is now firmly established on a com
mercial basis in the northwest as a
recognized industry and is not a
farmer's "side issue.''
Orchards are first in the western
grower's estimation, and, in many in
stances, comprise all the farm he has.
Fruit lands are not regarded as con
venient calf pastures. It is more than
likely that before the eastern farm
ers awaken to the possibilities await
ing successful apple growing or be
fore they can re-establish their worn
out and run-down orchards the north
west will have secured the markets
of the country and of western Bar
There has been an enormous de
crease in the apple production of the
United States in the last fourteen
years. The crop in 1595 was a little
more than 60,000,000 barrels, while
this year it will not be more than
25,000,000, as against 23,000,000 in
in 1908. This decrease must, in a
large measure, be ascribed to a lack
of co-operation among growers in
eastern states and the absence of
systematic efforts in marketing the
"It does not pay to raise apples,'"'
said the average eastern farmer, not
so many years ago, and so the indus
try declined. Yet in the northwest,
in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and
Montana, several thousand miles
from the marts of the world, the or
chardists made the crop pay. They
did more than make apples pay big
dividends on the investment —they
supplied an eager market and attract
ed world-wide attention to the dis
tricts west of the Rockies. The dif
ference between a commercial-basis
and a fruit-growers-association meth
od and the haphazard, calf-pasture
eastern way.
The fact that the exports were
more than 5.000,000 bushels in
1908-09. as against 2,800,000 bush
els in 1902-03, shows what can be
a< complished by systematic and in
telligent business methods. If the
fruit growers of the northwest had
acted independently and each treated
his orchard merely as a farm ad
junct, apples grown in Washington
and Oregon and British Columbia
would not now be sought by dealers
from Great Britain. Germany, France
Belguim and the orient. It is fully
as important to find a market for
one's crop as it is to grow it, par
ticularly if that crop is apples.

Inc., of which Ren H. Rice is secre
tary-manager, believe that they can
best assist the growers in the north
west as well m thorn in other parts
of the country by first popularizing
the apple as a national food and fruit
and then assisting them in finding
markets for their products, also by
encouraging th» growing of better
and cleaner fruit and more of it to
supply the ever-increasing demand
for high grade commercial apples.
The foregoing are the chief objects
of the second competitive exposition
in Spokane, November 15 to 20,
when it is purposed to demonstrate
to the people the possibilities of in
tensive cultivation in the west and
show them the value to the whole na
tion of this development. It is also
the promoters' plan to arrange for
the co-operation of the growers of
the continent and the entire world in
a movement for the betterment of
the apple industry.
The chief prize is the sweepstakes
of $1500. to be awarded in the car
load class. This calls for 630 boxes
or 210 barrels of commercial apples
of one or more standard varieties.
There will be carload competitions in
twelve varieties, also contests in bar
rel, box, pyramid, basket, jar and
plate disptlays, state, provincial and
district exhibits and a number of
specials, in each of which the man
agement has arranged for the dis
tribution of substantial prizes, in ad
dition to gold and silver medal ban
ners, cups and diplomas. In making
the awards the judges will consider
these points:
First, value of the varieties for the
purposes to which they may tf*
adapted; second, color, size and uni
formity of fruit; third, freedom from
marks of insects and blemishes;
fourth, pack.
Arrangements have been complet
ed to house the exhibits in 'the state
armory and adjoining temporary
structures, where three and a half
j acres of-floor space will be available,
| thus assuring advantageous display
' room to every contestant. An un
usual feature of the main exposition
| hall is the plan to erect an inclosure.

; covered by a circus tent roof, thus
j providing 75,000 square feet of
space, in addition to that in the

Cider Mill Lane, a feature that was
J received with favor last year, will be
! larger and better than before. There
will be daily concerts by two bands of
52 pieces and programs of high class
: vaudeville, also a series of demon
i strations by Miss L. Gertrude Mackay
j and a bevy of young women from the
| Domestic Science department of the
| Washington State college at Pullman.
"The apple show is national in
j character and scope from the fact
j that it concerns the welfare of the
j entire nation," said Mr. Rice, "and
I the second exposition fa designed to
;be broad enough to give it an inter
national aspect, which is certain to
| redound to the lasting benefit of the
growers in Washington, Oregon. Ida
\ ho, Montana and the provinces of
| western Canada, who are most con
cerned in its success."

One of Sothern's Jokes.
That Inveterate joker, the elder Soth
ern. had made an appointment with
Toole, the comedian, to dine at a well
known London restaurant. The hour
Of meeting was fixed, and Sothern ar
rived some few minutes before the ap
pointed time. An elderly gentleman
was dining at a table at some little
distance from that prepared for the
two actors'. He was reading a newspa
per, which he bad comfortably arrang
ed l>efore him. as he was eating his
dinner. Sothern walked up to him
and. striking him a smart blow be
tween the shoulders, said:
"Hello, old fellow! Who would have
thought of seeing you here? I thought
you never"- The assaulted diner
turned abound angrily, wbeu Sothern
exclaimed: "I beg yon a thousand par
dons, sir. I thought yoo were an old
friend of mine, a family roan whom I
never expected to see here. 1 bope you
will pardon me."
The old gentleman growled a reply,
and Sothern returned to his table,
whpre he was presently joined by
Toole, to whom lie said:
-See that old boy? I'll bet you half
a crown you daren't go and give bim
a slap on the backhand pretend you
have mistaken him for a friend."
"Done!" said Toole, and done it was

up the diners and left streaks of blue

The Doctors' Orders.
A lady whose husband seemed to be

and eat apples was asked by a sym

with him was. "Doctors." she replied
sadly. "No; be hasn't come into a for

tells the story.
"You see." explained the wife, "he's
been having some sort of matter with
his stomach, and he consulted two dif
ferent doctors about it. One told him
to pat a ripe apple every hour, and the
other said to rest an hour after eating,
so he's trying to do both."

Old Michael o'lloolalwn was walking
in tiie vale of Antra "ne hot afternoon,
and he came to n spring. It was crys
tal pure. The sand it bubbled out or
was as white as snow. Rainbow mists
hung over it in the sunshine.
Old Michael knelt down and took a
drink, and then, reeling remarkably re
freshed, he turned homeward. Though
he didn't know it. the spring in the
vale of Avoca was the real fountain
of youth, and it had lifted thirty years
from his bent shoulders, and he was
an outstepping, handsome lad again.
So, of course, when he got in the house
his wife didn't know him. He looked
in the glass at himself, cut a caper,
and then he said:
"Shure. Kathleen, 'twas the blessed
spring 1 dhrunk from in the vale of
Avoca. Glory be. it's made me youus
again! Run. darlint. run for yer life!
Ye can't miss it for the rainbow mists
that float above it. It'll take yer fat
away and yer lameness, and when ye
come back you'll be the Kathleen 1
knowed when we were courtin'."
So Kathleen ran. and Michael lit his
pipe and waited for her. But she
didn't come back. He waited and
waited. Then on toward dusk he hur
ried to the vale.
No Kathleen did he see anywhere,
but the wail of a babe's voice weeping
brought him through the dark to the
spring, and sitting there on the grass
was a little baby girl crying as if her
heart would break.
"What's happened ye. acushla?" says
"Don't ye know me?" says the child,
wringing her hands.
"Faith an' I do not," says Michael.
"Who are ye?"
"I'm yer wife." sobs the baby.
"My wife!" cries Michael.
"Yes." says the baby. "I'm afther
drinkin' too much o' the wather."
Some plays "take" and some don't,
and the fact that they do or do uot is
not always a criterion of their merit.
Last season an excellent play, with a
very good and well known actor in
the star role, failed utterly. Night aft
er night the curtain rose on an all but
empty house. One evening just as he
was about to enter the theater the
leading man was approached by a
ragged beggar and permitted himself
to be "touched" for a quarter.
"A thousand thanks." the beggar
said, evincing a rather surprising
knowledge of English as he pocketed
the coin. "To you this does not mean
much. To me it is half the world, and
I am willing to show my appreciation.
If you will give me a pass I will go
in and see your show."—Lippincott'a.
The Lesson of Love.

that. Me and Jim run to the kitchen,

Negro the Issue in Maryland.
Baltimore, Md., Nov. I.—The piv
otal issue in the state campaign which
closed in Maryland today is an
amendment to the constitution dis
franchising the colored voter. More
than usual attention from the out
side has been devoted to the contest
by reason of the fact that President
Taft manifested his personal interest 1
in the fight by writing a letter to the
state organization saying that every|
good* citizen, whether he be a Demo
crat or Republican, should vote
| against the amendment.
The contest over the amendment
is the culmination of a movement
begun several years ago before Sena
tor Gorman aied. Under his direc
tion an amendment similar to this
was proposed, but it met with so
much opposition from independent
Democrats that it was not pushed.
Many of the most influential inde
pendents in the state are out against
the pending amendment, but on the
other hand it appears to have the
support of a good many Republicans
in the country districts, who fear
negro local rule.
