Seedless Apple Has No Fruit Value.
Caldwell (Idaho) Rural.
"Most of onr readers have studied the
article relative to the seedless apple.
This tree will not be for sale for two
years from this spring, when the de
mand will probably exceed anything
hrtifrr known for nursery stock.
The company has a large orchard and
nursey at Lee's Summit, Mo., and this
fall will set out a few million more trees.
The apple was exhibited at the Ht. Louie
Fair and will also he exhibited at the
Portland Exposition. We are in hopes
to have one on view at the Gazette otlice
this fall, although as yet they are as
scarce as Queen bees." Kendrick Gaz
ette. That "seedless apple," Brother Mac
intosh, has been getting a whole lot of
free advertising of late, nd a good deal
of it is not very Battering either. Here,
for example, is one from a prominent
horticultural journal, under the cap
tain " Seedless Apples in History."
"Surely it is to the shortness of the
public's memory that gives fakirs and
their grafts life and prolit. Fifteen
years ago, tho press was nearly as full of
the seedless apple as it is today. At
that time Prof. L. II. Bailey punctii'rd
the claims of its promoters by saying:
"It apiears to possess no value asiile
from its curiosity."
H. E. Van Heman, then United States
Pomologist, said of it : "My opinion is
that the variety is practically worthless
asa fruit, but Is quite interesting as a
curiosity. Anvone who plants trees of
this variety will be disappointed except
in Having meir curiosity bbubucu.
Going further back it is found referred
to in this country in 18iiH, '(i!) and '70.
Then takinn a long look back a seedless
and coreless apple is found described by
a French horticulturist. Lclectier, in
KI28. Surely if the great possibilities of
the fruit claimed by its present discover
ers were really there, they would have
asserted themselves long ago. If a seed
less apple tree agent strikes you, start
him on an endless walk.
In addition to the above, several other
agricultural papers and fruit experts
have exploited the "seedless," and they
have practically all of them said
"don't except you want the satisfaction
of seeins a sort of freak curiosity, of lit
tle or no practical value, and at best fur
below, in size and quantity, many well
tested and popular apples of today. It's
all right to give the "seedless" a trial,
but the advice of the Gem State Rural
is to go slow on it at a financial ven
ture. Roosevelt's Old Buggy.
Richard JohiiHon of Minot, N. D.,
owns a buggy which waB used by Theo
dore Roosevelt on his Maltese (Irons
ranch in North Dakota nearly twenty
five years ago. The buggy had been in
use for fifteen years prior to the time
young Roosevelt used it. Mr. Johnson
will send the old vehicle to the Lewis
and Clark exposition. Many of the trap
pings used bv Koosevelt during his two
year's sojourn in Dakota have been pre
served by his admirers. One of these
relics is a dinkv little old straw hat
which looks very funny now, but it was

man wore it out to Dakota in 1XHI. Ef
