"Astonished the Natives."
This is an old saying, the origin
of which is probably unknown, and
it is doubtful If anybody particularly
wants to claim credit for It. In this
case It is so absolutely true nothing
else will so adequately describe the
situation. The "natives" were the
only ones who were astonished, and
many were heard to remark, "You
don't mean to tell me that fruit was
raised around here?" When told
that It was, and given the name c
the grower, he went to hunt him up
to verify the statement. The new-
comer that is If he has been here long '
enough to look around, does nothing
but admire and declare It beats any
thing he has ever seen, no matter
what part of the wide world he came
A short time ago Attorney Snover
delivered an address before a large
crowd at the" Marshfleld Chamber
of Commerce on the wonderful ad
vantages of raising the GravensteJn
apple, giving- logical reasons why it
was the best kind for this section, set
ting forth the fact that on account
of Its ripening early enough to get
into the Alaska market; also that It
was the most prouuc ana mat no
section of the country could beat
Coos county In flavor, size and
That started an argument, and one
that has not been stopped as yet to
be truthful about it, no one Is trying
to stop It. Those who favored the
"Baldwin commenced hunting for
the finest to be had. The Northern
Spy champion got busy ln fact,
every variety of fruit grown in this
county began to pile up ln the Cham
ber of Commerce rooms. If they
didn't have big apples they brought
In huge potatoes, monster cabbage
and cauliflower; one man brought a
fine tobacco stock, and the ladles,
not to be outdone, brought in beau
tiful flowers, till the hall is a veri
table bower. Were the natives as
tonished? Yea, they were duni
founded, squelched all broken op.
JT7hen one of them saw peaches raised
within three miles of Marshfleld that

apoplexy. A. W. Myers of Lee, Coos
county, has exhibited some red Belt

To show the utter carelessness of
some of the people here( and you
might say criminal neglect), It will
be well to Illustrate: When tho first
miles up Coos river and one mile
back. The place where the orchard
should be was found and the owner
began reaching up in the brush and
picking off apples. His companion
called out: "Hold on, those are not
apple trees; they are alder." The
fact Is, that the alders had grown
to more than twice the size of the
apple trees, and so thick It was next
to Impossible to find the apples. The
'fruit was there ln plenty and large
and luscious and without a blemish.
He said he would go back the next
day and shake the apples all off on
the ground to keep the bears from
climbing the trees and breaking them
down. Think of it! And those same
apples would bring him ?1 per box
in Marshfleld. Is it any wonder
(that is, till of late), and that she
has no railroad? But watch us from
now on! This fruit contest has
demonstrated that the bench and
upland, which can be had from $5 to
$10 per acre, is the best for fruit.
