-EXPOSITION. June 12. (Special.)
. The Oregon horticultural exhibit has
. won the gold medal at the Panama-
Pacific International Exposition, as
told in The Oregonian dispatches last
, Wednesday. This medal was won in
inclose competition with many of the
v states. foreign countries and the
I'-famous California fruit and flowers.
T There was not an Oregon man on the
' No special display was made at the
t last moment. Oregon spent on its
T horticultural exhibit, including- main
7 tenance. a total of $2500. Washington
i Bpent $7400. California spent a great
5 deal more. On the judging Jury were
-.12 men, famous horticulturists from
7 the- East, two from Japan, one from the
; Netherlands and two from California.
. They made a careful detailed survey
" of every exhibit and they made- their
;;, decision on merit and merit alone.
J" Oregon's success exploded a bomb
... among horticulturists on the grounds.
Why? Everyone Is visiting the horti
C cultural building, hunting ouLthe far-
famed Hood River apple, to know why.
Simply, the answer is this: C. N. Rav
Slin, chief of horticulture for the State
J of Oregon, owning and operating a
it. ranch in Hood River for the past six
J ears, puts his whole soul and bis
jl whole intelligence into what he under
v takes. He worked like a Trogan to
lave Oregon properly represented. His
. idea of proper representation for his
state was to put Oregon literally into
.: the exposition.
Frills Left Oat of Display.
He used Oregon logs and timber for
the framework of the booth. He used
Oregon lumber for the flooring. He
. used Oregon shrubbery live shrub
' bery planted in real earth and daily
'' watered and looked after, for a hedge
'about the Oregon exhibit and then he
displayed the best of Oregon hortl-
cultural products in the most ttrao-
', He didn't concern himself with frilly
i effects. lattice work and other orna
"mentation foreign to a horticultural
; exhibit. Every single solitary item
used in the booth was not only from
Oregon but could be used hortleultur
r ally. It was an exclusive horticultural
t display. Others bad done more elab
orate things, but they did rot repre
sent horticulture. Our whole display

California has Burbank aa her chief
horticultur&list, and hia display oc

won the gold medal.
Attempt to Please la Foremost,
Mr. Ravlin is the happiest man on
the exposition grounds today. I asked
him how it all happened. "I had an
idea." he said, "of making a cool, rest
ful place that would stand out in the
eye of the spectator who bad been see
ing many things at the exposition. I
wanted to attract him with a quiet,
woodland scene that would draw him
into its depths. The log cabin further
carried out this effect, while at the
same time it fulfills a necessary func
tion as a small store and tool house.
"I made every feature of the booth
contribute to the one end of pleasing
and resting the eye. Just as a country
scene does, and at the same time each
thing used had to be a pure Oregon
horticultural product. I made no extra
effort to win the Jury's attention.
Washington spent $1500 Just recently
in a final effort to make sure of the
gold medal. W did not spend an extra
cent. Naturally I am extremely gratified.'
A shipment of Hood River straw-'
berries here took his attention. They
bad Just arrived, making the 700-mile
Journey without refrigeration during
warm weather, and were in perfect
condition. The asparagus display is
the finest to be seen on the grounds.
It is interesting to know that C. N.
Ravlin la a clergyman's son, who be
came a newspaper man in San Fran
cisco and who later was connected
with the business staff of the Orpheum
Theater. Five years ago, feeling the
nervo wear and tear of city life, he
decided to become a horticulturist.
He chose Hood River, after a survey
of the whole Coast, because he be
lieved in the -future of Oregon fruits,
particularly apples. Their firmness and
keeping qualities won his preference
from a purely commercial point of
view. He bought a new ranch in the
rough, cleared it, and in these five
years has made it one of the show
places of Hood River.
He had never thrust a spade into the
ground or weeded an onion before he
undertook to be a rancher in Oregon.
His ranch la called Long Pines, and is
noted for its beauty aa well as its profit.
Mrs. Ravlin has been an enthusiastic
partner with her husband in this "back
to the soil" undertaking. She, too, was
of the city, city born and city bred,
and knew nothing whatever of ranch
life five years ago. Mrs. Ravlin la
with her husband at the exposition,
and takes as keen a pleasure in the
success of Oregon products as he does.
