quality is unsurpassevi. More wheat was
raised than of any other grain and it aver
aged thirty bushels to the acre. Oats yielded
fifty bushels per aire. There was a com
paratively small amount of barley raised.
The fruit ot this section, however, is not
worth mentioning this year. Almost within
a stone's throw of each other are four farmers
who last year marketed more than M.COO
pounds of dried fruit who will not send a
pound to market this season. Last year
Chris. Gutt-age dried 30.000 pounds, H.
Dubois W.OOi) pounds, A. Lacey 4,000 to5,
O00,and D. C. Howell about 4000 pound
The fruit was mostly apples and prunes.
This yewr they will not start their dryers at
ail unless Mr. Guttrage will dry a few
prunes. The frost knocked out our fruit
and it is quite a loss to us.
If we had a good road to Oregon City the
marketable (arm products of this neighbor
hood would be trebled in one year. In
grain especially would the volume of prod
uce increase. But the difficulty of getting
to market prevents many of the farmers
from tilling their land and thn3 develop
ment is greatly retarded.
Springwater is sixteen miles from Oregon
City. To go to market the people must
pass the hatchery and then go to Portland
or Oregon City more often the former be
cause the roads are not only worse but for a
considerable portion of the year utterly im
passable for loaded teams to Oregon City
irom the hatchery. Then the merchants of
Oregon City pay us less for our products
and charge us more for what we buv. If
they were content to make a profit one way
it would be something of an inducement
to trade at our county seat.
