The agricultural and mechanical
Fairs held this season in Nebraska,
have been, county Fairs, in Richard
. on, at Salem ; Pawnee, at Pawnee
City; Johnson, at Tecumsch, and
Nemaha, at Brownville, and the State
Fair at Nebraska City. We were able
to attend only the two last named
"TCe understand that the Fairs in Rich
ardson, Tawneeand Johnson counties
were successes, in all respects. In
Pawnee and Johnson, the Fairs this
fall were the first held in the counties,
but gave entire satisfaction. The ed
itor in chief of this paper has given
the readers of the Advertiser, a de
tailed account of both, the Nemaha
count-, and State Fairs, and we will
not now attempt to repeat what he has
These agricultural and mechanical
Fairs annual gatherings of people
are grand institutions; and if there
was not a premium awarded by a com
mlttee, or a dollar paid therefor, by
the society, the good accomplished is
beyond computation. In fact speak -'ing
of premiums we would like to see
these Fairs held on the principle of
"seeing and being seen." Bring your
6tock, products, Implements and wares
together for a grand exhibition ; let
exhibitors, inventors, owners and
friends explain, test and expatiate, to
heart's content. Then let public
opinion, really, the greatest awarder
and even law maker known, make
the awards. Let the people come to
see and get acquainted with each other;
to compare notes ; to be instructed, and
Instruct; a grand autumnal picnic.
The true and grand objects of these
comings together would be accomplish
ed in this way, and the laborious and
vexatious characteristics avoided. But
to use an expression familiar to old
Nebraskians, we 'have to come to pow
er," and run Fairs in the "old style,"
which demands a vast amount of hard
labor by a few, and often results in
anything but general satisfaction.
We have heard but few complaints,
however, this year, and are waranted
in the belief that all real friends of the
State feel . that great good has been
accomplished. "We hope to know
next year, that county organizations
exist in every county in Nebraska,
and that our next State Fair will not
be a whit behind its older sisterhood.
Let us all commence now to work to
Kext State Fair.
The next State Fair, as most of our
readers are aware, is to be held at
Brownville, on the Nemaha County
Fair grounds, commencing on the
third Tuesday of September, 1S70.
"We do not intend to speak at large in
regard to this matter now. But will
tlmply say that the eyes of the whole
State is on Nemaha county for the
next Fair; that every farmer, me
chanic and citizen of Nemaha are ex
pected to do "their duty ; their whole
duty, and nothing but their duty."
This being done, Nemaha wears (he
belt! She can do it we know she
cUL Already wl have heard from all
quarters, "let us go to work, and
beat the world." As an officer of the
. Board, we promise that the Premium
List Bhall be without fait as to its pro
visions all shall be provided for.
The grounds and accommodations
thereon shall be the same ; the houses
and hearts of our people shall be ditto,
and if the Grand Ruler over all, will
smile on, and prosper the labors of the
husbandmen, we will show such a
display of agricultural products, and
gathering of the people, as will
astonish the most sanguine.

Mr, Jitters, of Nebraska, presented
tome vt ry flue seedling apples, some
of which were named. The Otoe Red
Streak, Nebraskian, and Early Mar
garet, were among the number. . The
largest, and finest looking seedling
apple we have seen, was presented at
our County Fair, by Mr. Edward Ly
anna, whose farm is about seven miles
South-west from Brownville. It
measured twelve inches in circum
frcnee; flesh yellow with fine flavor;
skin thin and tender; blush color; ri
pens about the middle of September.
We attempted to exhibit it at the
Stale Fair, but it had entirely decay
ed before that time. We exhibited a
a portion of it to Judgo Mason, of Ne
braska City, and Maj. Pearman, of
Davenport, Iowa. It was pronounc
ed No. 1. in all respects, by both gen
tlemen. Owing to some little circum
stances connected with the origin of
the apple, Lyanna honored us by call
ing it the Furnas apple. We appreci
ate the compliment, and make our
best bow to Mr. L., but really, and
candidly, we are in Tavor of naming
our fruits after localities, rather than
men. The apple has not been named
by the State or County societies, and
we suggest that it be called the Ne
We are preparing detailed, accurate
and scientific descriptions of all Ne
braska seedling fruits, for publication
and filing with the State Horticultur
al Society, and will be pleased to have
all who have new fruits, furnish us
with descriptions. We want all the
characteristics of both, tree and fruits.
Be particular in all the points.
Since our fine fruit display this fall,
there will be a perfect mania for plan
ting fruit trees. This is all right, and
we are pleased with it. But we hope
what is done will bo done well judi
ciously done. Get good stock, plant
it well, and take care of it. Remem
ber "that eternal vigilance is the price
of fruit." Don't undertake to have
too large varieties of anything. All
who have heretofore attempted to ex
periment with endless lists of various
fruits, have at last come down to a
few leading and reliable varieties. P.
T. Quix, who is, perhaps, the most
extensive pear culturist in the coun
try, has reduced his list, formerly of
fifty varieties, to eight Of the end
less variety of grapes, for instance,
the general cultivator has use, real
ly, but for four or five. The same may
be said of apples. We do not wish to
be understood as saying a word to dis
courage the introduction of new va
rieties. All fruit growers, however,
cannot be experimentors. In fact but
few men possess the requisite patience
for this branch of fruitgrowing. Get
your trees from reliable men ; direct
from the nurseries, as far as possible,
and let "mid He men," as a rule, go
to the dogs. Next week we will pub
lish a list of fruits known to be hardy
and reliable in thl3 region, and also
give details as to the best mode of
planting and caring for trees.
The State Fair.
Will prove of great benefit to Ne
braska. The display of Apples, Apri
cots, Pears, Plums, Peaches, Cherries,
Quinces, and other varieties of small
fruits were splendid. That display
will forever silence the croakers who
have declared Nebraska not a fruit
growing State. Nebraska City News.
Yes, the fruit displayed at our Coun
ty and State Fairs this season, has
done as much real genuine good for
Nebraska, as all else heretofore com
bined. TheJ. H. Masters, the Judge
Masons, the J. 8 Mortons, the James
Greggs, the Bird Vowells, the W. S.

mention, and others whose names we
cannot now call to mind, who had
faith to plant trees ten, twelve and
fourteen years ago, and follow it up

kers," wear brighter and more endur
ing laurels to-day, than any other man
or set of men in Nebraska. Their
"foot-prints" are for all time. "Cast
thy bread upon the waters; for thou
shalt find it after many days."
Nebraska Grown Chestnuts.

from seed planted in Nebraska. They
were presented to us by J. H. Mas

oldest fruit grower In the State, and
who raised these Chestnuts on his
The Grasshopper season has "come
and gone," and we have all forgotten
to congratulate ourselves that "they
are no more." Not a hopper has so
journed with us this fall, in this region.
The soil is free from their pestiforous
deposits, and spring vegetation has
nothing to fear from that source.
Thanks to "Him who tempers the
winds to the Shorn Lamb."
As President of the State Board of
Agriculture, we thank E. A. Rieiil,
Esq., of Alton, 111., for a collection, of
grapes sent us at Nebraska City, for
exhibition at the State Fair. They
reached there the day after the Fair.
We opened the box at the Seymour
House, and with Dr. Miller, ed
itor of the Herald, Omaha; J. 8.
Morton, of the News ; Judge Mason
and others we "sampled" the collec
tion. We found the Roger Hybrids No.
1, Goetthe; No. 4, Wilder ; No. 15, Ag
awam; No. 0. LIndly ; No. 41, Essex,
Salem and Cunningham. They had
been on the road too long, but were
pronounced by all, very fine. We
hope Mr. Rieiil will visit our next
State Fair, in person, and bring with
him Borne of his fine fruits.

Hon. Geo. IIusMAX.the prominent
vine grower of Hermau, Mo., writing
us recently, says : "I am sorry I could
nq attend your State Fair ; but I am
very busy making our grape crop into
wine about fifteen thousand gallons
which takes all the time and attention
I can spare." How does that grape
crop suit our readers ? West of the Mis

Sir: .Co). Furnas wished farmers
last spring to furnish him a list of
trees, vines and hedges planted, this
season. This I now do, prefacing
with the number of gophers and other

and are in splendid condition
I have made fifteen" hundred "rails
from timber grown on this farm
From one tree I made 57 rails. I do
not miss what I have cut.
Col. Furnas thought some time ago,
that Mrs. Loveless was the "main
?2ring" on this farm. He will see
that ITiave given the gophers some of
the "spring" (rap. I caught all in a
steel trap except three, two of which I
killed with the spade, and Mrs. L
killed one with a hoe. I lost one trap
and broke one.

In addition to what Mr. L. has
planted this season and grown in Nur
sery rows, he has the largest orchard
in the county : About ten thousand
apple trees ten and twelve years old,
about as many more six and eight
years old, and about three thousand
peach trees eight and ten years old.

apples and peaches this year and last

TnE Bio Apple. Through the
kindness of J. Dan. Lauk, of the Ne
braska City News, we fell heir to the
big apple from- Cass Countyand ex
hibited at the late Stato Fair. It was
of the "Sweet Paradise" variety. It
weighed 29 ounce's and : measared-lG
inches in clrcumfrence. It. has been
forwarded to Gen. Capron, U. S.
Com. of Agriculture, at Washington,
with a request that Profi Glover make
a cast of it for filing in our State Hor
Parlin Orndorf A Co., of Canton,
111., manufacturers of the' celebrated
Clipper Plow, exhibited an elaborate
ly finished specimen of this plow at
the State Fair, to which the first pre
mium was awarded., Mr.' Orndorf.
who was present, generously donated
the plow to our State Board of Agri
culture, to be offered as a premium,
next year, for the greatest number of
bushels of corn raised from & given
number of acres. The Board accept
ed the present with a vote of thanks,
and by resolution, will offer it for the
greatest quantity of corn raised on 20
acres of ground.
The St. Louis Democrat, in giving
accounts of the St. Louis Fair, speak
ing of apples "says: "Some apples
were labled 20 ounces, and appearance
indicated that weight." That don't
come up to Nebraska'e 29 ounce apple.
When Missouri or any other State
beats us, all we have to say is, we will
try again. Until that is done howev

That honored and venerable fruit
grower and disslminator,' Marshall
P. Wilder, for years past.Presidentof
the National Pomological Society,
says in a private letter received by us
a few days since:. "I was deeply in
terested in the account you gave of
fruit culture In. your State. When
did this first commence ?". ,
A few of the faithful commenced in
1854, '55 and 756. and have been at it
everBince. They nave in every in
stance been paid for their labor. This
year has produced the finest fruit ev
er grown anywhere," and now all
doubts seem to be removed, and every
body will plant trees, as they should
have done years ago. . ' '
We made many new and valuable
acquaintances at the late State Fair.
Among the number Gen. Wm. DCane
Wilson, Editor of the Iowa Home
stead, of Des Moines.-, He went home
full of Nebraska, particularly because
of its fine fruit show. . We expect to
hear a good account of our young
State, from the General, aud hope he
will not neglect to furnish us with an
exchange.- , .
Jutige Mason has just been convert
ing his Clinton Grapes ; into k wine.
The grapes, when we saw them on
the vines, were certainly the finest
display, we have had the pleasure to
look at, anywhere.". -
We take pleasure in calling" atten
tion to the advertisement of J. C.
Plumb, Milton, Wis. He claims to
present a rare stock. We know him
to be a devoted and scientific Ponio
logisf, and can safely 'recommend
him and his stock to our readers.

the above named officers. Another
meeting will be held in Januiry, at
which time a Board of directors will

the successful operations of tha Soci

authorized to collect and forward to
the Agricultural Department atWash
ington, in the name of the Society, as
full a collection of Nebraska fruits as
can be obtained. The Secretary has

Our old friend M. W. Phillips,
Editor of the Southern Farmer, Chat

locks of between sixty and seventy
winters, still has, as he says, "a heart
as gay as a school girls," and is as
fond of a joke and fun as when we
first knew him long years ago. In
1859 friend Phillips sent us a tiny ejar
of Brazillian Pop Corn. Last year we
sent him an ear, the product of the
one sent from him, but increased to a
respectable sized ear by growing in

LtKAR Siks : Yours of the lsth T am In recelnt of.
which you ask it I have anvohjections to sendinir
you, lor piioiicaiion, uie ntcts 1 am iu'iiiaintel with,
in relation to the character of the Waller ffmne. I
have never indorsed the character or usefulness ot
vines, or other articles or any description, and would
not at my present stuge or uie were it not for twn
reasons which seem sulTicient. First. I know the
Walter urarte. win meet the pre Indices w desnre&il
throughout the country, caasd by the wort iilessnesa
In mmt localities of many of its predecessors. Sec
ond, because I can say from personal observation
that the Walter is the best variety I have had any
knowledge of. and I think I have cultivated nearly
all that have been recommended, discarding them
all and falling back upon the Concord and Hartford
Prolilicas vineyard varieties. I am inu-rest.l in
knowing that the fruit of the WiUrr grows hirtcer
each year as the vine grows older, being laAtyeur
fully one-third larrer tlmn it was two vein- hio It
grows well ; sets Imit well. I have seen it ripe sev
eral times before Hartford, and I have never seen
any mildew on its fruit or on iw large and thick, but
Delaware shaped foiiiige. The I'.avor of the l'ruit I
think superior to any other variety. You say In
your circular It is a seedling f the Delaware and
iana; I think the character of each of these
ties is quite distinguishable in the Waller, particu
larly that of the Delaware. I uImI think it would
make a wine of hiich charncter. I have visiterl it
nnuallr since it first bore, six vers nun tiiro tim-
n Ulster Co.. N. Y.. in n low vul'ev. iir ih. Isa
bella seldom ripens, and each time it was fullv ripe
In Autrust. I have seen tt each of the three past sea
sons in Poughkeeinie. ripening at the san tim
excepting Utt year, when the constant rains pre
vented ail varieties from maturing at their usual
time, but it perfected its fruit hv the middle of Sep
tember. The rntins of the lit mentioned crop I
have seen and eaten, whi li were good. From Its
succeding in the low valley and tenacious clar ot
jvioaena, ana also in the dry slatev nosition in
;o!iirhkeersie. I think it will tt wu .,,t,..i .v.
varietl sertions of our country. You may make
whatever use of these opin:cnsyni; dMm proper.
