THE PAST WINTER.
During October tho rains were well
distributed, and about the average
amount. During November and De
cember the rains wore heavy and gene
ral throughout tho stato, there b-'ing
an absence of the usual amount of sun
shine January, February and up to
March 20th the rains were light; suffi
cient, howover, to keep the soil in good
condition. There was an absence of
any h;avy snowfall, east of the Cas
cade mountains, while to the west there
were few days that the temperature
was bulow the freezing point; in east
ern Oregon thoro was an entire absenca
of any severe cold weather, a tjrapei-a-ture
of z :ro occurring but a few times
in the more elevated regions.
There was not the usual acrengo of
fall-sown wheat put in. owing to tho
heavy November and D-.'Cdinbjr rain
fall, but that which was sown did re
markably wrtll. Plowing and soeding
were pushed to their utmost during
January, February and the fore part of
March, so that now the acreage of ce
reals is fully up to the average, and it
is all reported to be in first-class con
dition. A more favorablo winter for
the stock has seldom been experienced.
There is no loss reported; the grass and
feed were plentiful and the stock all
came through the winter in excellent
condition. The growing season of 18!)2
opens most favorably for a bountiful
harvest, even surpassing the wonderful
yields and products of 1801. It should,
however, bi borne in mind 'hat tho
success of the cereal crop in eastern
and southern Oregon especially, de
pends more upon the distribution and
amount of rainfall in the months of
May and June and the temperature
conditions in those mouths than the
conditions of the soil and
tho present time.

March, and on the 29lh snow (ell on

winds have been -generally southerly,

Cereals are all in good condition,
though more growth would obtain if
there should be more sunshine, which
has been very deficient. The rainy
weather stopped almost entirely plow
ing and seeding. The reports indicate
excellent prospects for a large acreage
and the present conditions to be first
clnss for all the cereals.
The peach, apricot, some varieties of
prunes, pears and cherries are gener
ally in full bloom, and so tar are in
good condition, though the weather for
the past week has bten unfavorable:
the present weather conditions, which
if continued, will seriously injure tbe
prospective crop. Less rain, more sun
shine and warmer weather are needed
to protect and develop the fnlit buds.

Oregon Will Exhibit
The general imprcssiou to bo gained
from tho press of Oregon nt tho pres
ent time is that this state will not make
an exhibit at tho Columbian Exposi
tion This Is entirely a mistake. It is
true that it does not appear probablo
that the state will, in its official capac
ity, make such an exhibit. But. as
was stated in these colunmns some time i
ago, a fine assignment of space was se
cured in the horticultural building at
Chicago for Oregon, through the time
ly foresight of E. W. Allen, secretary
of the Stato Board of Horticulture.
At the annual meeting of the Stato
Horticultural Society, a committee
composed of E. W. Allen, C. E. H6s
kins, A. H. Carson, H. E. Battin and
J. H. Settlemier, was appointed to take
charge of the matter of making a hor
ticultural exhibit at the Columbian Ex
position. This committee is vigorously
The first need is money and they aro
working . hard to secure tho J10,000
which they find will be required to
make acredltable horticultural exhibit.
A good start has been made in raising
this sum, and every person who is in
terested in fruit or fruit lands should
at once send a subscription to E. W.
Allen, "0 Stark street, Portland. It is
to be hoped that subscriptions will be
sent in by every public-spirited person
in tho state.
The committee propose during the
coming season to put up, at the rooms
of the State Board of Horticulture,
No. 7(5 Stark street, sevoral hundred
jars of fruit, including all varieties
grown in the state. All fruit deeded
worthy, will bo put up, and the name
of the grower together with the name
of the fruit and any item of interest
will be placed upon the jar.
For this purpose, it will be under
stood, only the finest samples will be
wanted. In every fruit-growing state
extra efforts will be made to produce
samples of fruit of extraordinary size
and beauty. The Oregon f rul t-growers
snouiu ao tne same.
While a' horticultural exhibit Is not
alt that Oregon ought to have at tho
World's Fair, It would, In any event,
be tho most attractive feature of any
exhibit which the state could make,
and will be of great practical value to
tho state. Rural Northwest.

It was night. All naturo seemed

stillness of night save the low rustle of
leaves from the trees that shaded the
house, and now and then the evening
notes of tho whippoorwill in th: large
maple so near the window of the apart
ment whero lay our loved one that we
feared the notes would disturb her now
seemingly quiet slumber. They told
us she was dying; that soon our darling
would be no more. Wo watched as tho
little angel breathed so low, not a moan
escaping her lips. Tho physician told
us she could not live longer than
midnight, and yet we hoped and prayed
that our darling might be spared to us,
for how could we live in this cold world
without her? You who have lost those
that are near and dear know how our
hearts yearned over one who had ever
bjen so kind and gentle even while that
terrible disease was stealing her little
life away. At almost midnight she
awoke. Oh! how we trembled: weal
