ST. HELENS, OREGON
Hop growers in Oregon this year
are enjoying the unusual combin-;
ation of big crop and high prices. J
the yield being one of the finest the
state has ever had and the market
is advancing at the rate of one to
two cents per day. The demand (
at the present time is largely from
Europe, English buyers, especially,
being eager to stock up while the
price is within reason. So far,
American buyers are making little
effort to'buy, although it is known
that maay of them have contracted
hops to the brewers at prices con
siderably below the present mar
ket. Oregon's crop is probably the
best of any hop growing section in
the world, and as it is conceded
that the total world crop for this
year will fall many millions of
pounds below the average annual
consumption. The only worry of
the Oregon farmer is that he may
be induced to sell too soon. It is
freely predicted that the price will
go above 30 cents within the next
The coming annual state fair at
Salem, Sept. 29 to Oct. 4, promises
to be by far the best ever held in
the state. Hundreds of attractive
cash prizes are offered for the best
products in all lines and competi
tion for the various premiums will
certainly be extremely keen. Frank
E. Lynn, president of the Oregon
Jersey Cattle Club, has offered a
silver tea set aa prize for the best
Jersey heifer under one year of age,
and the club which he represents
offers a similar prize for the best
bull calf. The animals must be bred
and owned by members of the club.
The young people are to have their
innings along with their elrfers, the
management of the textile depart
ment alone offering 51 cash prizes
for work exhibited by girls u-nler
14 years of ae.
"The biggest noise the world hs
ever heard" is expected to be made
all along the l'acific coast from
British Columbia to I'anama at the
time the last rock burrier in the
Fanan.a Canal is blown out and the
waters of the Atlantic and l'acific
oceans are united. Arrangements
are being made to have the nem
flashed instantly to every city on
the l'acific coast when the final
blast is exploded and it is the in
tention to have every wheel in each
town stopped for a few minutes,
while bells, thistles and every other
known noise-making device com
pete in the production of noise. As
soon as the loose rocks nnd debris
can be removed from the cunal after
the explosion, whii-h is expected to
take place October 10, the canal
will be open to the passage of ves
sels, although the official opening
will not be announced for several
