the display of apples. There wa a
cmli table showing of other fruits, both
fresh and canned, and of vegetables,
etc., but the apple exhibit was tho best
probably that was ever made in the
tdate, and was pronounced ly recent
visitors to the Columbia exposition as
line as could be teen there. More than
100 varieties of apples vwro shown, ami
;iis competition was keu, the leading
-varieties were each represented by a
large number of plates. Some criticism
has been made upon the fact that so
many varieties of apples have been
planted at Hood Kiver, but it is to be
remembered that the era of eonum reial
fruit growing is but just commencing
there, and this experimental work
which the fruit growers are engaged in
is likely to result in benefit in demon
strating what varieties will prove most
profitable for raising on a large scale.
At present strawberries are the lead
ing fruit at Hood Kiver. The ship
ments from that station the present
year amounted in value to SuO.tino. The
strawberry business will grow, but
there cau be no doubt that in lime it
will be exceeded in importance by the
.apple growing industry. The fuel
ili, on.e of w hii h, t y iiHi.sU.e
liulit, exceeded lo ioehes in eii'euin-
fert live. '1 ho color ot each w i.s
ami beautiful, and as far as could be
seen fioui outw.iid inspection, not a
single apple was market! hy a b.ciiiish
or talon by woims. Of ail the vatio
ties, the (.ilawiisu in, a fall apple, is
held in the highest csitciu on account
of its line flavor. The 1 w t nty-Ouueo
is the best apple for cooking purposes,
ami, as us name implies, it is a big
one, yet not so large as the liloria
Muuiii, which reigns supreme for size.
The King is the liuest apple for both
eating aud cooking. Fi r winter use
the tllovv Newtown Pippin
above ai! of ils fellows as an eating ap
ple. These are the principal varieties
now sent East lo supply tlio demand
for tine fruit, and they appear to till
the bill. M. V. Kami, a fruit grower
living on the cast side of the river, had
oil exhibition a luiil'-do.eii Maloms, a
new variety of tipple recently brought
over from ticriuaiiy. Tiicy are very
similar to Uraveiisleins in llavor and
somewhat hardier. An exhibit of

The pretty little town of Hood llivcr
was reached at 1U:,",0 o'clock . The ex
t uisionists w ere ret cived at the depot
by 'i he l'allt s delegation and eltiens
of tho town, and carriages had been
thougii! fully provided for I heir accom
modation. They were tlcn tlnvtu
through the !ovv n and to the pavilion,
w here an agricultural fair was in pro
gress. The display was an immense
one, the building being liMs. l.'l fee!
aud contained a most varied collection
of fruits from the vicinity of Hood
Kiver. The f.iir was a most crvtktablo
one, and rctleets great credit on Un
people of Hood Uiver. lively kind if
fruit, berries and vegetables wore dis
played, s-pwial mention should be
mailt i f the gloat apple display, and
one apple in pa 1 1 icu !ar showed by
actual me. .sur.'iiie.'ii the immense t ir
eumt'etcuce of i!,,-lnsi which is one
inch larger than any on exhibition at
the world s ON posit inn .
Mr. Fred T. Smith, holt ieiili nral
commissioner for the South Australian
Agricultural S eiety and correspondent ;
for several Australian papers, who ac
companied the excursionists, was very
enthusiastically impressed w ith the ele
gant fruit display at Hood Kivt r and
has premised s nue very flattering re

old farmer stilted that the s asou was
rather early to show cviiy variety of

shown to statup in I ho minds of I heir
guests the idea that the-r collection
