Cove, Ore., Feb. 14 (Special) The
last etrawberry crop was good,
the acreage rather small, but prices
excellent; about 3400 cratea ' to
tal, nesting the growers about $7400;
Ure raspberries and blackberries had
a full yield about 2,000 crates, were
marketed at a value of f 3,000.00. 1
The Cherry crop wsb splendid, so
were all -the markets, both for the
fresh fruit and for canning puposes.
Thirteen full carloads left Cove, five
with over 10,000 boxes packed fruit
for : Eastern markets, 4 cars . were
processed for Maraschhio stock and
four others went to the Portland Can
neries, with considerable going local
to the latter place; besides over 7000
boxes going by local express to ! a
hundred different markets. Th total
crop amounting ; to nearly 350,000
pounds, bringing In cash to Cove, the
neat sum' of $20,000.00. ;
, The three leading cherry growers
are Geo. W. Thomas, G. M. and G, G.
CMttvkiiiuu ' 'ii'ul "5li.rl '2. f?f-rr
each had over 50,000 tpoiind crops last
Beason. Other prominent cherry grow-
er are: j. K. Lantz, J. W. Ingram, 'A.
Anderson and Son, J. M, Selders, A.'
Comstock, The Geer Bros.,,J. Wilson,
R. Sivers, J. W. Dean, Liurence Bros.,
and Wm, Martin. , '
Plums and pears made a good crop,
although of no great importance, nev
ertheless about 6 cars were Bhlpped,
bringing in satisfactory returns.
The Italian prune Is also a promin
ent crop in Cove and the last season
made a full average crop of about 350
tons,' half of which were packed and
shipped fresh and the balanca dried
or evaporated, the total bringing an
average of nearly. $20.00 'per ton or
approximately $7,000..
The apple crop was the best Cove
ever had. in the aggregate, although
therej.were a great' loss on account of
Infested and Inferior fruit from soma
of the dryest and old neglected orch
ards.Th total marketed output be
ing 46 cars loads, of which the Mount
Fanny Fruit Co. 'packed and shipped
14 cars, The Cove Merc. Co., 4 cars,
B. FJBell. 8 large cars, containing
considerable over 6,000 boxes from his
own orchard, and Karl J. Stackland
20 cars of which 9 cars were grown
In his own orchard.
The prices realized for these apples
are, not! yet fully In, as 15 cars have
gone Into Eastern cold storage;- but
the average up to Jan. 1st, was about
$1.00 per box but '.all -the last ship
ments are now bringing $1.25 to $1.50
for the two best' grades of the leading
varieties making the total run' well up
to $30,000.00.
The above Is not so bad, consider
ing the" fact, that we had a very dry
season, many orchards suffering for
water, that never had done so before.
And, also remembering that we still
have mostly, the old and badly select
ed plantings of largely unprofitable
kinds and varieties.
A very encouraging change Is now
taking place lnl Cove, a period of erad
ication, renovation and work fora
change In kinds and varieties, Is on us,
we have at last, learned what la worth
hating and what we better get rid of,
pulling out undesirable trees and top
grafting others, cleaning up and plant
ing the money niokeis, 1b the order
of the day.
A great deal of new planting will
also take place, many preparing to
get a good substantial start, partic
ularly in cherries and pears; prom
inent among these are Dr. Llllle who
will plant 2,000 pear trees; the writer
Is making arrangements to plant at
least 4,000 Beurre de Anjou and 1,000
Duchess pears; Mr. ii Brazille about
2,000 Anjous and some cherrks; Mr.
F. Roberts 600 BIng and Royall Ann
cherries, Mr. Leo Blevlns several
I hundred cherries,- a new party from
I the east Intends planting 1,000 each
pirs and cherries.; the La Grande
I Investment . Co. on their land here
about 3.000 apple trees and scores of
other, from a few to several hund
red trees.
;'l Besides the above, there" is a large
undertaking on foot, partly to be back
i 5$ by, neiv people from the East, con
templating taking over at least 100
acres of choice fruit land, ready for
planting and putting it Into Anjou
pears and cherries, with a view of ln
creaslnf It to several hundred acres
In the near future, having already let
contracts In the east with reliable
nurseries to grow for their account
15,000 Dwarf and 10,000 standard Be

years pleantlng, . : ' ' '
A widely known lecturer, who was
In Cove this spring, having traveled
over the entire United States several
times, was so faorably Impressed with
pur conditions here, that before leav
ing he made arrangements for a choice
tract of land on which he will grow
cherries, although he was already in
terested in Rogue river land and had
investigated' very well 'reputed fruit
section of our country, :,.rr,.-
; Another party from the- far East,
having printed a long line of intel
ligent and pointed questions, In re
gard to the conditions, etc., for fruit
growing, and having sent them, J.000
copies to all the . leading and most
famed sections of the United States
and ; Canada,; Is writing that he will
be here ami from all he how knows
Will buy and go heavily into orchard
ing In Cove.: vL- :'
:, All these facts are really encourag
ing for all of us, the wonder Is that
so many of us are chasing the distant
rainbow, buying oil stock, "Wireless,
steel ties, Rubber stock and what not
to get rich quick, when we have much
better things right here and ten .times
as. sure. -.; i..;. "'' :;' ;.'
- Even some of tho. few extra, profit
able stock ventures can't show the re

right here, a hundred thousand acres
in Union county, can and will be made
worth at least $500 per acre more

income; who' will start to get their

Mrs. W. M. Giles, of Sumpter, Ore ,
says; "I was bothered for about two
years 5 by kidney complaint f and the
doctors could not help me to any ex
tents There was a constant, dull pain
across my loins and this was accom
panied by a soreness over my kidneys.
My back achei: bo intensely that I
could hardly sleep and I had trouble
with the kidney secretions. When I
saw Doan's Kidney -f Ills advertised I
was induced to try them and It requir
ed tha contents of only one box to af
fect a cure. I value Doan's Kidney
Pills highly."
