Clark Co. Chronicle - A plate of as fine apples as can be raised anywhere, is on exhibition at the Chronicle office. They were raised by C. T. Haskins, of the town of Beaver, and show that apples and fine ones, can be raised in this locality if one cares to give the trees the necessary attention, but like anything else, it requires a knowledge of the necessities of the tree and as good care as any other crop receives to grow them here. Mr. Haskins has some very fine ones this eyar. There are lots of apples in Clark county this season, there being not less than twenty small orchards on the road between this place and the county seat, all of them loaded with this desirable fruit-something very unusual, but demonstrating that fruit-raising is possible.
