Let it be said that every article
diown was the best in its class, they
are not satisfied with, "That's good
nough," as "Farmer" Smith would
say, speaking of some of his farmer
acquaintances. 1 hey have made a
success of farming, because they have
,'itred for the inner man first. No
man can eat the food shown in their
,'xhihit without being a strong man
mentally and physically, all of which
'I he East wall was covered with a
general display of Morrow County
grain and vegetables. This was pre
pared by Mr. Freytag and was a mar
vel in grain display. Every bundle
was carefully arranged und tied with
ribbon and placed on the wall by him
these grains, grasses ana vegetables-
were collected from all parts of the
county and many of them were exhi
bits of grains not generally found but
w hat are being tried out now by farm
ers. One especially good sample of
wheat was brought in by Andrew Neel
of Lone Rock.
The first booth on the north side
contained a display of harness and
saddle work of Gene Noble of llepp
ner. There were three saddles in the
center, all handmade and treasures of
saddlo makers' ai t. On the wall in
the rear were chaps and brass mount
ed harness of the Sncst quality. In
front was a stone and Mr. Noble dem
onstration how the ornamental work
on saddles is done. This exhibit was
one of the most artistically arranged
mil many pcoplo wero heard to com
pliment it very freely. In the mat
ter of harness, Mr. Noble has no com
petitor in this part of the country and
his saddles take front rank with sad
Ues made in any part of tho country.
The second booth on the north was
devoted to an electrical display by
the local light plant. "Do it electri
ally" is now tho modern way to eli
minate drudgery, exertion and the
lead lift. One of the devises which
was a center of interest was a wash
ing machine. Irons, perculators,
doves, vacuum cleaners nnd the
Mazda globes were on exhibition and
hundreds of farmers expressed the
lesire to live in town where they could
take advantage of the current.
The next booth was occupied by Dr.
F. J. Brown, the Portland eye doctor
People who needed glasses took ad
vantage of the fair to bo here and
have their eyes fitted. In this booth
were many of tho paintings which
were on exhibition and which showed
that Morrow County is not without

Mr. Peck's exhibit was one of the
finest exhibits on the grounds and he
well deserves the Sweepstakes prem
ium for the best gram exhibit. Mr.
Peck farms on a scientific basis, guess
work has largely been eliminated and
his exhibits show what a man who
mixes a little business ability with the
dirt can accomplish.
In the center of the pavilion were
four sections of exhibits each with four
tables piled high with articles for ex
hibition. In the first section and en
the first table' were tomatoes, a gar
den article which was though impos
sible to grow here a few years ago;
mcumbcrs of several varieties, green
beans on the vine, canned logaiiber
ties of Class A kind and other small
vegetables. Most of these were ex
hibited by Harry Cummings and rais
ed near town.
On the second table were nine large
heads of cabbage; one-half dozen pie
pumpkins; several mammouth Chili
squash; three sweet potatoe squash
and a rattlesnake squash. These were
excellent samples and show what good
squash and pumpkins can be raised
here in this county. Mr. Freytag sail1
they were as good as any he had ever
ieen in the tdate, a statement which
On the third table were mostly
grains, there being all kinds of wheal
snd oats. Rye and barley were there
as well as seven samples of wool.
Many thought that there should have
been more wool at the fair, as Mor
row County does not take a back seat
lo any of them when it comes to a
matter of good wool. '
The last table in the first section
was mainly the exhibits of V. 0.

were twelve stalks of corn, all good
corn. There were melons, cabbage,
beets, onions, cucumbers, in fact
svervthing that you could desire to
ind on a first-class Morrow County
ranch. The cabbage was especially
On the first table in the second sec
tion were 65 apples exhibits, all plac
id on trays with live or six apples to
a tray. There were the Yellow Bell
flower, the Spilzenberg, White Winter
Peorman, the King and the Glory
Mundi varieties. AH were excellent
apples and the quality and size were
much commented on both by the
judges and the visitors. One man
from Hood River said, "We don't have
nnythiing better in the Valley."
The second table was filled with
flowers, all from Harry Cummings'
nursery. Harry certainly knows how
to raise flowers. There were Dahlies,
tho Storm King, the Jack Rose, the
White Killarney and many others,
torty in all. v lowers are n sulo issue
with Dairy, also but these drew'
many blue ribbons.
On the third table were over
twenty varieties of astors. They
were of every color and shape you evei
saw, and some of them very rare
specimens. On this table was a hand
made violin and another violin 127
The last table in the second section
held the culinary display. These were
several kinds of jellies and other kinds
of canned goods. Cakes and bread
and home-made butter and lard were
in profusion. Several of our promin
ent batchelors were seen looking long
ingly at this table.
The third section had Mrs. Wm.
Scrivner's display on the first table.
Many women were heard to speak
wy favorably ubout this exhibit.
She had many of the blue ribbon on
tries in the cooking department and
her flowera won the admiration of all.
The second table was coveied with
over tit) varieties of apples. Among
them were the Oregon kod, Paradise
Sweets, Alexander and the Spokane
lleauty. This table was one of the
finest tipples exhibits seen here for
iomo time. They compared favorably
with apples grown in more favorahli
