The following appeared In the

Among the county exhibit at the
fair It would be hard Indeed to select
one that Is really better than another.
With the wide range of vegetables and
the magnificent fruit lndlgtuoii to all,
selection of one a excelling another
Is largely a matter of taste and Is
Influenced more or less by the man
ner of arrangement. It Is much like
trying to select the most beautiful
from a bevy of beautiful girl each
with a charm and beauty of her own,
yet each different.
There is one county, though, that
deserve special mention, not ao much
for it superlour beauty or quantity
of exhibit a for the energy and pluck
It required to make an exhibit at all
and that I Malheur county. It la a
dry county way down In the south
east corner of the state, and up until
a few years ago, outside of the pale of
civilization, or so considered by most
of us. All that was expected from
Malheur. Lake and Harney counties
a few ears ago was a showing of cat
tle and cowboys, sheep and sheep
herders, branding irons and slxshoot
ers. This is all changed and Malheur
come four hundred miles to "Show
us." Distance and lack of transporta
tion facilities hampered her In show
ing her more perishable products, but
such as she brought are educational
and glvo one an entirely new Idea
of that one time desert."
Her exhibit of corn Is way yonder
ahead of any other, and when It ia
shown the yield la from 75 to as high
as 100 bushels to the acre of yellow
ears as hard and plump aa the best
Iowa or Mlssour ever produced, one
naturally takes off his hat to the com
ing bacon supplier of the Northwest.
Her exhibit contains many other
things, but her corn outshines them
all. Malheur deserves a special prise
for her Industry, energ and corn.
Among the ribbons brought home
by Mr. Lackey, who had charge of
the exhibit, are a first and aecond for
comb honey. First on strained honey.
First on corn. First on the following
varieties of apples Arkansas lllacka,
Jonathans, Wine 8aps, White Winter
Pearmalns, and Grimes Golden.
Second on school display.
This was the most firsts taken by
any county. With a few more gralna
and grasses we would have taken the
first for county exhibit.
When It Is considered there waa
but a day or ao to gather this ex
hibit It certainly speaka well for the
county. Another year the plans will
be such that work on the exhibit can
be started early In the season and
then an exhibit will be gathered that
will make us all feel proud that we are
residing In a county capable of the
production of such a choice lot.
THE SOCIAL AEEAIR
OE THE SEASON
On Monday evening Mr. and Mrs.
Sanderson, Dr. and Mrs. Pruning en
tertained about 2 couple in the Grotto.
The room, a beautiful one, hail been
especially decorated with autumn leaves
and vines, which harniom.ed with the
other colors and made a delightful com
bination. Man) beautiful gowns were
worn by the ladies. Dancing and cards
were the amusements, with splendid
music. Punch was served during' the
evening and a supper at 12 o'clock. The
guest are still lairing about what a de
lightful evening :.iey spent.
PRUNE PICKING OVER AT
THE IDANHA ORCHARD
The prune harvest at the Idnnhn
Orchards came to an end Saturday of
last week. The total number of cars
shipped was 34, the fruit grading
much hUhcr than usual. Great care
was taken In grading nnd packing
this season, every box being passed
b an expert Inspector before leav
ing the premises. If the fruit did not
grade to the proper standard It was
returned for repacking. The number
of cars wns less than had been esti
mated larller, but considering the
crop was pronounced a failure In the
spring It was entirely satisfactory to
the owner. Mr. Cannon states that
work will soon be started on building
for drying purposes, nnd next sea
son the prunes will be shipped from
here Ii, 'he dried state lan other
Improvements are contemplated which
will bring up the efficiency and enrn
Ing capacity of this valuable property.
