July 17 Preparation are being made In the Boise Valley and Southern Idaho a well a all fruit section In thl state for the handling of the bttmrar fruit crop during the late Summer and early Fall months. It Is now estimated by expert horti culturist who have made an Inspec tion of the crop that the yield will be larger than It waa last year and a better variety. They declare that al most twice the choice fruit of thla section will be hlpped thla year over the amount hlpped last. The' fruit la beyond any possible dsnger of dam age. Frost did little harm while the unusual amount of rainfall proTed a great boon to the forming fruit. The New Plymouth Fruitgrowers' T'nlon has contracted for one of tha largest frultpacklng house erected In thl state, a two-tory. 40xl00-foot building, modern In every respect and to be erected for the handling of thl year crop. The capacity of the pack ing plant will be two car per day. al though thl will be Increased a the season advance. New riymouth la the site of the plant. This town Is In the heart of the famous Payette al ley. Leet year thla association handled 1 car of fnilt and thl Fall expect to park twice that amount. New Plymouth boasts of a genuine Irrigation wliaard In the person of Walter Burke, who ba the manage ment of a ioo-acre orchard four mile southeast of that town. Tha land on which the orchard stand la exceed ingly uneven and I without n doubt one of the mot difficult tract being Irrigated In Southern Idaho. There la not a missing tree In the entire J00 acres and a test on one of them re vealed the startling fact that It waa growing at the rapid and marveloua rate of a half Inch per day. From June 13 to July 11 thl tree grew 1S Inchea by actual measurement. This 1 prob ably a record growth for the North west. While the fruit condition never looked better In the southern part of thla slate, the prospect for a bump er hay and grain crop are a good. Iry farmers will have one of the Urg es! crop In the history of the coun try, due to the lata rain. The outh matern and eaatern part of tha tate la favored In thl respect. There I double the amount of land dry farmed thl year than there wa lat and many experienced rancher taking advantage of tha late Spring and the promising rain planted late grain crop that will net them big returna thla Fall.

A special meeting of the bridge com mittee of the Executive Board will ba held at the City Hall Saturday morn ing whan Ralph Modjeskl. engineer of the Broadway bridge, will take up with the committeemen contemplated minor change In the new steel trnc ture. Mr. Modjeskl arrived In Portland yes terday, from Chicago, and went at once to Inspect the work of sinking the 1: ;v:!?- Ralph Modjeekl. Broadway Bridge Engineer. Who In spected Work eaterday. caissons, which I now In progress on the Kast Side. Me examined the cement gravel 4S feet below the water level, and will go down and look at It again Saturday, he says, sfter the workmen clean up the Interior of the caisson. Engineer Modjeskl believes It will not be necessary to sink the cais son deeper than it feet instead of SO feet aa called for in the original plans. The reduction of 18 feet on eacn cais son will save the city 114 a cubic yard, the cost of sinking the big steel cylin der and filling it with cement. Depth la Overestimated. Somehow." said Mr. Modjeskl. "the men who do the preliminary boring get the depth of the gravel greater than It really Is. and when wc come to sink the caisson we usually find we don't have to put them down so deep. I don't know why this Is un less It Is because the Joints of the sec tion overlap as they are driven down, and cause the men to estimate a greater depth than they really have. "I will take thla subject up with the bridge committee, and also the ques tion of putting In an entrance to the new bridge from Crosby street. The property-owners have taken up this question, and are uulte anxious that an entrance to the bridge be provided at this point. Break In Wall Needed. "The original plana call for retaining walls on ea-h side of the approach on th East Side, where It goe through a cut which will be msde for It. If this retaining wall were built as now contemplated It would close Crosby street. It would be ridiculous to extend the brldae approach Into Crosby street to the west of the bridge, as the street runs only a short distance before strik ing the blulT. But to extend the ap proach Into Crosby street to the east would he practicable. It will cost the city considerable more money, however. To do It a break must be made In the retslnlng wsll to the east, and the wall extended along each side of Crosby street, as the property owners do not went tlielr property to slope down to the brlilce grade. "Another question I whether th city I to furnish II own trolley pole and tracks, and lay them, leasing them to the railway companies who operate over the pew bridge, or whether It is to per mit the rallwsy company to lay them. The streetcar company took up with me the technical matters about curves, snd also the question of moving the tracks from Seventh street. Car to I" so Inalde. "It Is planned to give room on the outside of tb bridge for slow-moving t raffle and to give the streetcara and automobile th Inside of the bridge. "One difficulty we will have to meet Is th width of tha car to be operated by tha Mount Hood Railway Power Com pany. I am told they are to operate 10 foot cars. The ordinary Pullman 1a only Dine feet six Inches wide. We have al lowed 18 feet six Inche between curb for th alow-moving traffic, and 19 faet six lnohee between guard rail for th ears. It appear that thl will probably be Insufficient, and the plan may have to be modified- on account of the wide ear which are to ba used by the Mount Hood Railway. "For the West Side approsch the con crete pile are now being moulded and allowed to et. As oon as they have dried ufflclently they will be driven."

MERRITT SEES WIFE Prisoner's Pathetic Plea Al lowed by Officers. WOMAN THOUGHT DYING Husband Begs That He Be Permit ted to Remain by His Spouse's Side, but . He Is Returned to Llnnton RockpUe. 'Moved to pity by the tearful pleas of Jesse Merritt. officers at the City Jail arranged yesterday an interview be tween the man and his dying wue i the Countv Poor Farm, whom he broke jail to see. Merritt. utterly shaken by the debauch, which followed his nreas. for liberty at the Linnton rockpile. two weeks ago, wept continuously In the cell to which he was returned after being recaptured by Deputy Sheriff Hunter on a nocturnal visit to his wife's refuge, early Sunday. "My poor wife," he moaned. "They are going to lock me up and I shall never see her again." It was granted that Merritt might go to the Poor Farm, but as -he had no money to provide a conveyance. Pa trolman Sims proffered his motorcycle and Merritt rode In that way, seated behind the driver. The scene when husband and wife met was pathetic. The woman extend ed a wasted hand and arm and smiled languidly as she murmured. "Hello. Jesse." Merritt broke down completely and begged her to add her request to his. that he be made a trusty to work at the Poor Farm during the woman's few remaining days of life. Mrs. Merritt smiled sadly as she re plied from the depths of a bitter ex perience: "I am afraid that you would Just go and get drunk again. Jesse." It becoming evident that the inter view was weakening the patient, Mer ritt was taken back to the Jail. "Let me go back." he begged of Ser geant Riley. "You can put a ball and chain on me, but let me stay near her till she dies." The man was reminded that no prisoner had received more sympathy and consideration than he. and that his craving for liquor had led him to break faith with the police and the court. His pleadings were Ignored and he returned to the rockpile yes terday. Merritt was arrested three times in three days for beinc; drunk. Twice he was given another opportunity out of regara for the condition of his wife. The third time he received the maxi mum penalty. Two weeks ago. in com pany with two others, he scaled the walls of the rockpile canyon and es caped the guards. Ho hid in the woods, waiting for an opportunity to visit Ills wife, until Saturday night, when ho attempted to break into the Poor Farm hospital. Mrs. Merritt is suffering from tuberculosis. Two sons, one of them onl 14 years old. are supporting themselves in the city. BETSErOUGH93, DIES NATIVE OF OREGON COVXTRY BURIED AT WASHOIGAL.
