leading dealer In hop eonts here, declares
tat la Crrgan th ia ar there Is an In

"This has been s banner year for ths

"Hesry orders hsvs come In recently, but
t he season on roots is practically closed
snd they cannot be 'filled, although yestsr
riav I male a shipment of s.00O roots to
California. Ths new acreage along ths
ei'Sst will be large. Last ear ths new
scresgs hardly balanced up to ths ) ards
that were abandoned.
" allfornia ts sitll ordering roots, but
there are none left. Indications this year,
with a normal se-awon. point to at least IftO.
ss balea. and with a season above the nor
mal, from HO.Owu to IZO.sua bales. California
will probably gv ahead of last ear In ths
sue of Its crop, owing to the heavy rains.

The mohair season Is ove-r. so far as pool
ui'i are concerned, but ther la still a con
s.derable quantity unsold In ths country.
It Is estlmsted that about a third of ths
clip is still In farmers' hands.
The local dealers and th mills sesm to
bo well stocked with high-priced mohair,
and as a consequence ars disposed to buy
now only ml lower figures. Ths pries of

'Cool Lager"' and "Old Oaken Buck
et" Figure In Divorce Review.
SALEM, Or.. May 2. (Special.)
"Cool lager beer" versus the "con
tents of the "old oaken bucket" with its
accompanying possibilities of bacteria
and noxious germs" proved to be the
burden of a Supreme Court decision to
day in which Justice McBride discussed
some marital woes and modified a di
vorce decree granted to Charles E.
Short from Maggie E. Short, the case
being appealed from Josephine County.
The lower court decided for the
plaintiff, but as to settlement some of
the lower court's findings were modi
fled. In the course of his opinion Jus
tice McBride says:
We gather from the testimony that both
parties were disposed to be tenacious of
their opinions and that defendant was dis
posed to magnify Innocent pleasantries Into
gross Indignities. Thus, when a few days
after the marriage, ho said. Jokingly, to
a friend. "I paid $8 for this thing- (mean
ing defendant). $5 to the minister and $3
for the license," she now assumes that a
deadly Insult was Intended. Another "in
dignity" was perpetrated the day after the
wedding. The bridal party with relatives
were on their way to Crater Lake. The day
was hot, the road dusty, and tha bride
thirsty. Prefering cool lager, right off the
Ice, to the contents of the old oaken bucket,
with Its accompanying possibilities of bac
teria and noxious germs, somebody sug
gested that a case of beer be procured at
a wayside saloon. The groom made decided
objectlona, and altfiough the beverage was
procured and presumably consumed, the pro
cess was not accompanied by the hilarity
and good cheer usual on such occasions.
The husband gives a fair and plausible
reason for his opposition, namely, that ho
objected to beer being drunk In the presence
of the children. The wife should have re
spected his scruples and tried to worry
along on well water, or at least not have
taken the objection to heart as an inten
tional cruelty.
