Mountain Homo, Idaho: Tuesday, January 24, 1905

Volume 16
Annual Gath
ering of Pruit
Scene Unexpect
edly Witnessed
by Delegates
At the closing meeting of the
annual session of the Idaho State
Horticultural Society at Boise last
Thursday morning the following
officers were selected for the enBU
ing year:
President. Fremont Wood, Boise.
Vice-president, Prof. L. B. Jud
son, Moscow.
Secretary, B. P. Shawhan, Pay
Treasurer, P. A. Devers, Payette.
Directors from each of the four
districts chosen are: Prof. L. B.
Judson; B. P. Shawhan; W. 0.
Howie, Esq., Mountain Home;
T. Harris, Blackfoot; and Fre
mont Wood as director at large.
A. F. Hitt of Weiser was recom
mended to the governor for a place
on the state board of horticultural
Resolutions were adopted urging
upon the State Legislature the
wisdom of extending aid to the fruit
interests in order that Idaho may
more speedily assume her rightful
position in this important industry.
An appropriation of $20,000 is
asked for, to be expended by the
Board of Horticultural Inspection
in expanding the benefits derived
from the horticultural law. It is
pointed out that the fruit produc
tion now exceeds the intermoun
tain demand, and in order to
extend the market a standing
committee was appointed to work
in the interest of favorable trans
portation rates.
The bill now pending in the
legislature providing for an auxil
iary experiment station in the
southern part of the State was
endorsed, and appreciation was
expressed for the benefits derived
by the Idaho fruitgrowers by
reason of the fact that the State
and the Northwest Associations
held their annual sessions at the
same time. In addition, acknowl
edgement was made to Prof. Bell
for his thorough and important
investigations in connection in
with the codling moth, that
active archenemy of the apple.
This unmitigated little horticult
ural nuisance will soon have to
pack his trunk and "hike" out
for Africa, or some other place
where his residence may, perhaps,
be tolerated for a time.
In addition to the able address
of Prof. Bell on Tuesday, at the
Wednesday evening meeting Prof.
A. M. Aldrich and J. R. Fields of
Payette also handled the moth
without gloves. W. T. Harris read
an instructive paper on "Horti
culture in High Altitudes," and
W. Jy*Howie, Esq., enlightened the
delegates on "How to Protect from
Late Spring Frosts."

L. C. Barrett Co.
Noted Scientist rails to floor and Expires
in View of Audience.
Who could have suspected that
the dark angel was to intrude his
presence on this peaceful occasion
—that he would stretch forth his
arm with lightning flash and
claim a victim from among those
learned tillers of the soil?
And yet, indeed, such was to be.
Prof, William D. Carlisle, of Spo
kane, came as a delegate to the
meeting of the Northwest Fruit
growers' Association. As the
"Northwest" meetings were held
in the daytime, and the Idaho
State Horticultural Association
convened at night, it was arranged
for Prof. Carlisle to speak on "By
Products of the Orchard" at the
evening meeting, Jan. 17, in order
that all might hear. \
Hardly had his hearers settled
themselves in comfortable po
sitions, in order to better pay
strict attention to what wa6 being
said, than Prof. Carlisle sank to
the stage before their eyes, and
expired before it was fully realized
what had occurred. His last
words, as reported in the Capital
News of last Wednesday evening,
Jan. 18, were:
* * * Partially repeating his for
mer statement as if to make it more
impressive, his last words, significant
as if he felt a nearness to the Supreme
Euler, he said:
"7/ God wovld make known to
each one what He would have him
do, he would do it, regardless of
wealth, earthly pleasure — yea! life
itself -"
Here the speaker stopped short, and,
placing his left hand over his heart, in
a tone of voice betokening surprise, he
said, "What is this?" and sank to the
floor. * * The scene was intensely
dramatic and furnished an experience
never before passed through by any
one present.
Fremont Wood, President of the
Idaho State Horticultural Asso
ciation, at once wired the sad
news to Spokane, and on Thurs
day Prof. Aldrich, of Moscow, ac
companied the remains of the
dead scientist to the family home.
The State fruitgrowers defrayed
all expenses incident to the em
balming and shipment of the body.
Having bought W. D. Bailey's
coal business, we are prepared to

on short notice, and solicit a

New Aerie Located Amid Enthusiasm
and Other Things.
The Eagles and Eaglets soared
and soared last night. Then they
soared some more, and it is whis
pered that a few of them even
soared clear out of sight. This
morning one of the initiates
said to spell it "sore."
Anyway, a new /Erie was lo

number of other things which per

places, to instruct the youngsters.
