VOL. 3. 1 have resided in the Yakima Valley for 12 years, engaged in general farming, fruit and hop culture. I raise all my products by irrigation, and have never failed a single year in obtaining bountiful crops. I farmed formerly in the State of Kansas. I find all kinds of husbandry here much more profitable than in Kansas. And as to climate, such things as blizzards and cyclones arc not known. Our winters arc very short, and the spring and fall are perfectly delight ful. All our farmers who arc industrious are prosperous and happy.

What be said of wrote to bis generals was often amusing ly put. When a seemingly insurmoun table obstacle checked the advance of one of bis armies his favorite illustration was: “Well, if you can’t plow through the log perhaps you can plow around it.” ' It was tbe characteristic of General Mc- Clellan, the author tells ns. that he ah ways regarded bad weather as exceeding ly injurious to him,but as never injurioca to tbe other side; so Lincoln once said of him: “He seems to think,in defiance of Scrip ture, that heaven sends its rain only on the Just and not on tbe unjust.” Exasperated at tbe discrepancy be tween the aggregate of troops forwarded to the same general and tbe number the general reported as being received, 14** coin exclaimed: “Sending men to that army is like shoveling fleas across a barnyard—not half of them get there.” When one of the northern commanders took the control of a Missouri church out of the hands of the rebel trustees Lincoln disapproved of tbe measure in a dispatch containing this terse and vigorous phrase, which immediatly obtained wide curren cy: “The United States government must < not, as by this order, attempt to run tbe churches.” When Grant was accused of intemper ance the president answered: “If I knew what brand of whiskey he drinks I would send a barrel or so to some other generals.” He once telepraphed to General Hook er: “If bead of Lee’s army is at Marti ns burg and the tail of it on the plank road between Fredericksburg and Chaocellors ville, tbe animal most be very slhn some where. Could you not break him?” D. E. Lesh, proprietor of the celebrated fruit farm called “Fruit Vale,’ swears that on one Alexander peach-tree grew, during the year 1890, five hundred and twenty pounds of peaches, which he sold for $53; that off four apple-trees twenty or. pippins, he sold too boxes, 4,600 pounds, at $135. My whole orchard, between six and seven acres of peaches, apples, plums, pears and apricots, brought me, during the season of 1890, about three thousand dollars. D. E. LESH.
