Report of (lie Ctindllliiii In
Oregon for the Week
The week oiened with threatening
weather In all sections, but the long
looketl lor and needed rain have been
consplcuou only by their absence, ex
cept a few acalterrd showers ill (tortious
of 1 1 in cobhI counties, but not enough
to even lay tlm dust. The remainder of
the week was uttciidcd by warm, dry
anil densely niokey weather with toler
ably cool night. Although it I gener
ally conceded that at the present
moment a good rain would prove Ix-nell-clal
in many respects, yet heavy rains
would do more harm than good, becuuae
all farming ope rut ions would nrobuhly
be psralised, ro that barring a slight
opprcsnvcnesii of the atmosphere owing
to the dust ami smoke held in MiisH)itslon
and a littlo beat, the weather lis not
tieen so bad after all sine It ha permit
ted the farmer to bring most of their
harvesting work to a succesaHfuI close.
Corn i reHirted as doing tolerably
well under tlm circumsianii!. Oat
in Curry county will yield from
duty to forty-five bushel to the acre.

cation of good price being obtained for
