the very unusual act of wilting her
own obituary, which In part is as fob

Mary Auu Northrup, was born iu Til
lamook county, Oiegou , J tine II, 1808,
being the daughter of Harvey and
Kuruu Northrup. (irundpureuts on
t both sides and father wore emigrants
of INiu. At the age of 1 years, in the
year 1872, 1 moved with my parents to
Uloucoe, Washington county, Oregon,
where 1 received my early training in
the Hhady Hrook country school. In
the full of 1HH1 I attended school in
ililltboro, Oregon, remaining there
until June, 188b. Then 1 spent two
years In the Portland public and high
schools. In the tall of 1887 I began
teaching in the public schools of
Washington county, and wltliit he ex
ception of one year spent at the Ore
gon State Normal, 1 have tai ght al

Seediest.' Apple Not it Success.
Apropos of several specimens of the
seedless apple, which it says were
submitted to it by the general mana
ger of the Heedless Apple company,
liural New Yorker publishes a state
ment by Dr. Walter Van Float, part
of which is as follows:
A single seed was found In one speo
liuou in an extra or advent it ions core
near the blossom ud of the fruit.
The others were eutireiy freo from
seeds, though the usual woody car
pels ot core divisions were not only
present, but strongly developed. The
apples are rather small lu si.e, round
and smooth in form, dull red In color,
with many li.,'ht dots. Itie calyx is
very large and open, and the bastu
is wide and deep, extending almost to
the core. The ttcsh is white and ilrm,
quality very ordinary, about on a par
with LI in Lei Twig, and scarcely as
good as lieu Davis. The claim made
by the promoters that the tSpeuoer
seedless apple contains 20 per cent
more apple substance than other vari
eties of the tame si.e is scarcely
borne out iu the specimens examined',
as the substaueo lost by the huge
open calyx huMn would quite olfset
any gain iu the t paces normally occu
pied by seeds.
A pome or applelike fruit is, botan
ically, the diluted and softened
flower stem oveigiowing the ovary or
true fruit, made up of woody or bony
carpels (core plates) and stds. lu
tbo. bpeuoer ami other seedless apples
the seeds alone are absent, but the
objectionable core is present as usual.
Unless the seedless variety should
possess in addition unusual good
quality or oiuer vaiuanie attributes
it is not easy to see w hy it shoul I be
particularly desirable except as a cu
riosity. We are told the Spencer apple pio
moters expect to develop seedless va
rieties of commercial apples, such as
Winvsap, Jonathan, lielilloner and
(Jaub. This can only be done by the
usual nreetling method of cross pel
leuization and careful selectiou of
succeeding generuti ins. While it is
within the nintje ot possibility t h it
seedless varieties rc.-emhling to some
extent our present successful com
mercial apples may iu tune bo secur
ed, such result in most uncertain and
likely to icqniie indefinite time. I
