A letter which we have received on
the future of the Hood River apple
and comparing the soil of this section
with that of the Willametto valley,
Editor Glacier:
In the Independent of New York,
under date of Ootoker 11, appears an
excelleut article uuder tbe caption
"The orchard in Ootober" written by
Mr. E. P. Powell, of Clinton, N. Y.
Mr. Powell is the author of such
well known productions as "Tbe
countiy borne," "Old farm days,"
etc. Only writerB of acknowledged
authority gain access to the columns
of so reliable and conservative a
journal as is the Independent.
The brief exoerpt which we wish to
make from tUia article, as bearing up
on the future of the apple industry is
as follows:
"A good orchard is the best possi
ble pi oporty. The price of apples is
sure to improve rather than docliiie.
Not only have we the English and the
German markets, lint the open door
iu China promises to absorb all the
apples that our Pacific states can pro
duce. We are i i all the ports of the
world in spite of trade restriction,
and will stay there. At home the ap-
rle is entering much more largely
tbau formerly, into family consump
tion. I find that my old aud estab
lished customers are doubling their
orders of ten vears aao."
One is acoustomed to beating such
views ou tba apple industry irom
Hood River or Rogue River orchard
enthusiasts. But this, coming from
an eastern man, carries with it the
weight of additional authority.
As we are already in the markets of
Germany aud England wltn our Iew

Echoes From the Fruit Fair.
The Hood Kiver fruit fair held last
week was a great success, the exhibits
being larger and liner than ever be
fore. St. Jchn's Review.
To say that the Hood River apple
show was a sucoess would be to put
the matter very mildly, for the dis
play of apples was undoubtedly the

"Talk about advertising you should
see the way Hood River is advertising
her apples in Poitland," said C. L.
Phillips, wbo spent yesterday at the
metropolis. In many of the show
windows of the largest stores are box
es of apples, labeled "Hood River
Apples", with fancy prices attached.
"That's tbe way to let people know
about a plane, said Mr. Phillips, "aud

The great suocess of Hood River
