1 tbeir TflS SPOIUNEJ3XPOSITION. Ool. CVittutoek Writes About the Agrlcul. , tttfftl, Mineral and Art Exhibit*—The Vole for the lotva Block. SroKANK FALLS, WASH., | October 20,1890. f Editor Republican: Notwithstanding the criticism of the U. D. M. for your Bourse in publishing an occasional letter from me, I still think it no sin, nor harm, and therefore write again, leaving it with you to publish or not, as you think best. That criticism, if carried to its logical conclusion, would exclude from the papers everything which comes from outside their own narrow circulation. I have always supposed that the idea of one people, one country, and one flag, was as broad as the nation itself, and that the prosperity of one locality was the pride and not the envy of all. The great event in the Gem City this year, and the theme that is upon every tongue, is the opening of the Northern Industrial Exposition. It has now been open to the public nearly three weeks and the interest manifested on the opening day has steadily increased, and particularly during the evening, when it is brilliantly illuminated with a thousand arc and incandescent elec- ^ j lights. The musical program, tinker thC combinea management of tlie tfar ifameu 1 IIun K ari a n band and the •consolidated ^ and ot ' the 2ml ««inient, Oias.attracted m^ 1 '^ the manv lovers *of sweet Jiarmony; . and tbe y are iin Qpokame. Cliicag^i wer, .Ban Francisco, Tlarge .citfies, have for •expositions, for the purpose of 'before rthe people an aggregation ^specimens-of their products, but..,.. Jkane iia >tbe only city of its size in th# -world 'that 4ms ever attempted an exposition of this character and magnitude. Not'only ;the people of Washington, but Idaho anfl northern Oregon, have .recognized theimportfmceof this undertaking and have put forth .strenuous efforts tto make a creditable display of the various cereals, fruits-and mineral productions of the different localities. Columns cou'ld be written in description of the many wonderful exhibits, but I well mention but a few. The highest record of wheat that I saw was ( 101 bnshels per aore. Sixty, 70 ami 80 %ushels per acre were quite common from most all portions of the state. I ^presume here, MS In older states, tire anany failures and light yields were not mentioned or on "exhibit. Com. in my judgment, in this latitude is a most ' dismal failure. I saw but one exhibit that was worthy of mention, that would compare at all favorably with Iowa, and that was from Key, Perce county, Idaho. That was a very creditable exhibit for any climate, but the conditions of its growth I did not learn. A squash at 149 and a potato ut 4* Ibs. Is the lead in these vegetables. Bat soil under the sun can produce finer -potatoes,beets, turnips, and in fact all vegetables, nor in larger quantities than are grown in these northweftern states. I judge by the products of this season only, winch are on exhibition here at the present time. Peone prairie, 5 miles to the north of Spokane, has a display of grains, fruits and vegetables which would attract universal attention, even at & world's fair. The fruit exliibit from Ellensburg, Yakima, Walla Walla, the Palouse country, and some portions of Idaho cannot be overestimated. The apples, peaches, pears, quinces, plums and grapes, were a surprise, not alone to the thousands of visitors from the fine fruit growing regions of the eastern states, but to the older residents of this state as well. I have visited the finest fruit regions of California and I never saw finer looking fruit, and if my memory of taste at that time is correct, I think the California fruit lacks the fine luscious flavor of these Washington fruits. The exhibit from Adams county, which is among the finest that I saw, is in charge of a Mr. Hutchiason, & gentleman whose presence, if once seen, will not be easily erased from tlw cemetery of ones memory. Mr. Hutch- is an exhibition of the possibilities of this wonderland, standing seven feet and two inches in height. He ex- plains'the exhibits from his county U?ith a sauvity that is entertaining and Instructive, and discourses learnedly upon the atmospheric changes of the higher altitudes from actual daily ex-: perlence. Col. Thomas, of Mictrigau, said yesterday: "You can see farm nm'a» chinery and art' galleries at any.expo- sitlon. but the equal of the agricultural exhibit here cannot be found anywhere on earth." It is useless for one who is not an and Salmon river, embracing e08 frot n "early 600 mines, and all with.'" a radius of of 50 or 100 miles of SpokanC 1 * of which it is as much the natural centt't' «s tlie sun is of the solar system. The art gallery, » room 150x75 feet, contains much to attract the eve of the lover of this art. I understand a car load of these pictures were brought here from the eastern cities. We were attracted by a mob of people around a very unique pattern of a crazy quilt. We found it to contain a block pieced by the ladies of the W. C. T. U. of each of the separate states, in the center of which was tlie signature of its governor. We feasted our eyes upon the well known signature of "Wm. Larrabee," and were proud that we had lived in that the grandest old state of the union. By paying 10 cents we could vote upon the prettiest block. We put in our mite and cast one more vote for old Iowa, knowing that under the aegis of the old flag in Washington and under the banner of the W. C. T. U. it would be counted as cast. We were pleased to see the loyalty of the old citizens, as the vote of that block was far in the lead, but as we stepped away we had to make a mental reservation that South Dakota had a most beautiful block. Hut I fear I am encroaching upon your space and will only say that all "he Algonians are in the best of health and are seemingly prosperous and contented, j. M. COMSTOCK. THE COUNTY NEWS.
