GRAIN OUTLOOK EXCELLENT
Walla Walla Farmers- Expect Best
Wheat Crop In Years.
WALLA WALLA. Wash., April' 4.
(Special.) April finds grain in the Walla
Walla Valley in better shape then for
years, and this season, declare farmers,
will see one of the best wheat crops
that has ever been harvested in the
Walla Walla Valley. While March was
unusually dry and warm, thy have no
fears on account of this, as the moisture
in the ground is greater than for years
on April L
This is due to the fact that all the
nain and snow of the Winter fell on un
frozen ground, and because there was
not one heavy thaw during the Winter.
Consequently, the moisture all went Into
the ground, as is evidenced by the fact
there have been no floods during the
Winter or the Spring.
Spring seeding is done, and the farm
ers say all that is needed now is warm
weather to bring the crops 'along In good
