St. Louis, Aug. J, Although 2000
miles from home and handicapped by
a comparatively small state appropri
ation, Oregon has an exhibit at St.
Louis that would be a credit to any
atate In the union. The various depart
ments are under the charge of cap
able superintendents and all the dis
plays have been Installed In such (in
attractive manner that they never fall
to Interest world', fair visitors.
Never before have such disad
vantages been overcome In securing
the state exhibit, and never before In
the history of Oregon's participation In
American expositions have the efforts
of those In charge of the showings
been crowned with such success as has
been attained at the Louisiana pur
Oregon has had exhibits at every
celebration held In the United States
in the last decade, but her crowning
triumph has been at St. Louis, where
she has Installed a display that repre
sents every branch of Industry and re
source existing within her boundaries.
Oregon's displays are divided Into
six departments exclusive of the state
building, which contains no exhibits
other than those generally placed In
state structures. These six depart
ments are mining, educational, agricul
tural, horticultural, forestry and fish
and game. Each of these exhibits is
In its respective exhibit palace.
The Oregon building Itself Is one of
the most Interesting state structures
at the fair, and holds a high record
for visitors, nearly 10,000 having regis
tered since the opening day. It was
built at a cost of $10,000 and is a rep
Ilea of Fort Clatsop, the first building
erected on the Pacific coast by Amer
ican cltlsens, being constructed by the
great explorers, Meriwether Lewis and
William Clark, on the seashore In
northwestern Oregon, a little more
than 100 miles from the place where
the city of Portland Is now located.
Lewis and Clark started on their
long journey to the Pacific ocean from
St. Louis In 1804, and, after spending
one winter on their way, reached
Oregon and the mouth of the Colum
bia river in 1805. They built Fort
Clatsop in that year and used It as
a dwelling and defense against the
Indians during the winter of 1805-6,
starting on their return trip to the
states in the sprung of 1806.
In consideration of the fact that
Portland Intends to celebrate the cen
tennial of this memorable Journey by
the Lewis and Clark exposition In the
summer of 1905, the Oregon state com
mission, which has charge of the state
exhibits, both at St. Louis and at Port
land, decided to erect at St. Louis as
the state building a reproduction of
the famous fort and stockade. The
original, built so many years ago, has
of course long since crumbled away,
and the only thing that now remains
to remind the seaside visitors of the
presence of Lewis and Clark Is a salt
cairn used by the explorers to evapor
ate sea water to procure table salt
This pile of boulders has been fenced
In and will be properly cared for by
the Oregon Historical Society.
The Oregon building Is made of fir
and pine logs bought all the way from
Oregon, and is the first state build
ing this western commonwealth has
ever had at any exposition. The In
terior Is finished In beautiful native
woods fir, pine, larch, spruce and
cedar and the long fine grain and the
absence of ugly knots in the planking
never fail to elicit favorable comment
from visitors who. know good lumber
when they meet it. Realizing that the
St. Louis exposition would be the
greatest fair the world has ever seen,
or probably ever will see, and that this
would be the first time the state was
represented by a building of her own,
the commission has taken pains to
erect a building to contain features of
interest. That this idea has been car
rled out Is attested by the large crowds
that have thronged the Oregon build
ing ever since opening day.
The main room is filled with mag
nificent views of Oregon's Justly famed
scenery, Indian robes and other ar
ticles of Interest One side is com
pletely filled by a large fireplace that
can accommodate cordwood with ease.
Directly over the fireplace is a 15-foot
panorama of Portland, the exposition
city of 1905, showing snow-capped
peaks and the beautiful Willamette
river and the surrounding country.
In addition to the main reception
room there are four office rooms which
also contain interesting articles from
Oregon. In the rear is a stockade 100
feet square, with bastions at the two
The nearest exhibit to the state
building is the mining display In the
south corner of the palace of mines
and metallurgy. This display Is the
beat mining exhibit ever got together
by the state and represents Oregon's
mining industry In the most complete

gold brick you read about, either; It's

on display for visitor.' Inspection.
The educational exhibit embraces
many bound volumes of school work,
pictures of all types of public and
private learning Institutions In the
state and examples of manual training.
All of the display ranks high with
other states and shows that work done
by Oregon students Is as good as work
done by students In any part of the
country. The exhibit Is tastily In
stalled, and particular pains have been
taken to make It attractive.
The forestry, fish and game displays
are better at St. Louis than they were
at Chicago. In fact, the Oregon for
estry exhibit at Chicago had practi
cally no large logs or timbers, while
at St, Louis the state boants the lurgest
on the grounds. A fir log SO feet long
and nine feet six Inches through at
the butt Is one of the features. This
log Is one of seven cut from the same
tree, which contained something more
than 40,000 feet B. M. of lumber. The
tree grew at Blind Slough, Clatsop
county, and stood 200 feet to the first
limb, rather large In the eyea of the
easterners, but nothing unusual In
Oregon. Another feature Is a squared
timber, four feet by four at the end,
and 42 feet long. Then there are some
big cedar blocks from North Bend,
Coos county, cut by the Simpson Lum
All these big sticks are In the out
side forestry exhibit, while the display
of polished woods is Inside, along with
the fish and game exhibits. The latter
show every variety of game bird in
Oregon, including bob white, several
kinds of quail, grouse, partridge, ptar
migan, prairie chickens, suge hens, Or
egon pheasants and the beautiful ring
necked pheasant, which a few years
ago was Imported from China and Is
now the most plentiful game bird In
Oregon. Salmon In glass Jars and bot
tles showing the various stages In the
development of the fish from the egg
are also shown.
Probably the finest collection of
grains and grass In the piilace of ag
rlculture Is in the Oregon display. In
addition to this display, there Is a mag
nificent collection of edible and non
edible fruit in bottles, hops in bales,
and other farm products.
The horticultural display, which is
closely associated with the agricultural
showing, has become famous on ac
count of the dally demonstrations of
Oregon prunes, which are cooked with
out sugar and served cold. They are
said to be the finest prunes grown In
the United States, and thousands of
pounds of them are shipped to France
every year, where they are repacked
and sent back to America to command
fancy prices. A recent report of an
American consular agent In the In
terior of France calls attention to this
extensive practice on the part of the
Oregon Is also Justly famed a. the
Lang of the Big Red Apple," and her
showing along this line Is also good.
Last year the state shipped 60 carloads
of this fruit, and It will produce even
a larger crop this year.
Oregon cherries are now on display.
One of the cherry judges who recently
passed by the exhibit sampled the
Blng and Black Republican and an
nounced that they were the finest cher
ries he had ever seen. In Missouri
the Black Republican Is known as the
Oregon, because It was originated in
the western state. The Blng Is also a
native of Oregon. Taking all in all,
Oregon has an exhibit of which her
people should be proud. Her displays
do her credit at this great exposition
and attract universal attention. The
state will receive great benefit from
the fair, and the money appropriated
for the exhibits will bring manifold re
turns to the people of Oregon.
