Magnificent Fruit Exhibit Beauty of
Mountain and River Indescribable
and fortunately Indestructible
The Dalles. Oct. 13. (Editorial
Correspondence.) A t the Hood
liver Fruit fair there was a display
at about GOO boxes and 300 plates
31 apples and other fruits. Besides
the Hood River Valley, White Sal
mon, and Mosler, were represented
irltli fine exhibits. These latter
pilnces have not used irrigation and
Hiave not learned to put the finish on
jthe crop, nor to pack as perfect as
Hood River. The great success of
sHood River fruit has stimulated the
people of adjoining regions to exert
themselves at fruit growing. Rather
than give a detailed description of
the Fruit fair, I give the result of
a few talks I had with the fruit
growers themselves, preferring to
give conservative statements of men
who nrd doing things and who can
give further Information If wnnted.
L. J. Carter, who went from
I Salem to Hood River four years
ago, has been handling 25 acres of,
tipples, and turned off 2.000 boxes,

"Madam Butterfly" in Washington.
Washington. Oct. 16. Puccini's
Japaneso opern "Madam Butterfly,"
which has been tho tnlk of two con-
tlnonts for tho past year, had Its
first American production last night,
nt the, Columbia thenter under tho
direction of Mr. Henry Snvage. Tho
translation of this celebrated work
to the English speaking stage has
awakened greater Interest than any
grand opera introduced to mimic
lover's with the one exception "Par-
sifal." The audience was ono of tho
most distinguished nnd rcpresontn-
tive ever gathered for a first per-
formanco In Washington. Puccini's
inspiration for the scoro of "Mndam
Butterfly" was found In John Luther
Long's beautiful Japanese story that
was urnmntizeo into a ono act piny
by David Belasco and had over 1000
performances. The o)ern Is In threo
acts and la the best example of mod-
em Italian composition by the fnm-
mm eomnoser of "Ln Hoheme nnui
"Toscn." The absorbing nature of
tho story togethor with the heart
stirring hnrmonles of Puccini
promise to give n sensational voguo
in America. "Mndam Butterfly" Is
tho first grand opern that has a mod
ern subject for Its theme, nnd tho
flrot successful work of Its kind that
Introduces American characters.
Tho story is that of a pathetic lifo
of little Cho-Cho-Snn, the uoisnn
girl who wbb married to an Ameri
can naval officer. The scenes nro all
located nt her charming villa nbovo
the bay of Nagasaki In a gnrden of
wlstnrln and cherry blossoms.
