REFRESHING: We received from Mr. G.W. Walling, of the Willamette Nursery, a quantity of fine new cider, upon which a number of the most astonishing experiments were immediately made. One youthful demon, while wistfully eyeing the empty measure, observed that the only complaint he had to make was that the “cider was diseased — it was inflicted with incurable consumption.” (Morning Oregonian, August 1, 1863)

Mr. Walling, at the Boise nursery, is demonstrating the fact that this valley is well adapted to the culture of the grape.

There is no reason why the vine should not be extensively and successfully cultivated here, as well as other fruits. (Idaho Statesman, September 5, 1865)
