Ntw Era, April 20. We are basking in
aunsliuie ami flowers while Hie air is redo
lent with the fragrant hloom of orchards.
Farmers are improving the fine weather
planting potatoes, etc.
We have a good prospect for a large crop
or fruit in this locality.
The aggregate amount of potatoes shipped
from New Kra during the past season
amounts to about 1S.W0 sacks, the larger
part having been sold in San Francisco.
Our energetic road overseer, Wni. Kider,
baa been doing some much needed work on
the road north and south of the creek bridge
in New Era. This road bas long been in a
deplorable condition, causing many of those
passing over it to utter words of astonish
ment that a road over which so many
teams pass daily should be allowed to re
main in so nearly an impassable condition.
A start, however, has been made toward
improvement of our roads and it is to be
hoped will continue.
The river road from Canby and New Era
to Oregon City is one of the oldest and
most traveled public roads in Clackamas
county, and the people residing along its
length hope to see it kept in repair.
