There is a big rush on hand to put the fruit through it« processes as fast as it is received. The warehouse in filling up with cam* waiting shipment, while crates upon crates are being unloaded at the re ceiving room. Ideal weather is making the fruit ripen fart. There is a shortage of hands, but so far, with every employe exerting every energy, ail the fruit has been cared for in good time. Al though unable to run full capacity, nevertheless 16,000 cans of fruit are produced daily, almost a hundred thousand cans a week. That means a payroll for labor alone amounting to $2000 per week. The cannery plys out approximately $25,000 a week for fruit — $25,000 for the local fruit growers. Mr. Fisher, the manager, said that this year the cannery is running at a disadvantage, but even so results are decidedly gratifying. For an other year, provisions for ample help will be made early in the season and all other necessary arrangements will have been made before opening time. He also predicts a great berry fu ture for this locality, which of course means a big canning business. Trans portation difficulties will eventually be overcome. Raspberries are selling at $300 per ton. The yield this year is much heavier than last year’s, in some patches almost double. Blackcaps at 11 cents—over $200 per ton—yielding in places four tons to the acre—ove- $800 from one acre. Ten acr*s sounds like a fortune. That tne prices are up to stay is - assured. Land values will rise. A period of great prosperity has bet ■ opened.— Gresham Outlook.
