The weekly crop bulletin of the Ore son
weather bureau says:
Moderate to low temperatures, with light
and insufficient ahowers m scattered lo
calities. There was ample sunshine and
some high day temperatures, but generally
the nights were too cool for rapid growth.
Winter wheat prospects are excellent In
the Willamette valley, but dying winds and
lack of moisture are causing anxiety re

which will cut down somewhat the earlier
estimates regarding these fruits: most or
chards, however, are setting a well-distributed
crop that is exceptionally free from
disease and insect pests. Late cherries are
ripening and a fair crop Is indicated. Blng
nd Royal Ann cherries are abundant in
Douglas county, where peach trees also are
loaded with fruit. Loganberries are begin
ning to ripen, with prospects for a heavy
yield. Generally the fruit situation Is satisfactory.
The weather has been ideal for haying In
practically all districts. The first crop of
alfalfa Is .mostly cut and the second crop la
getting a good start. Pastures and the low
er ranges are dying rapidly, but the moun
tain range is still good and stock continue
in prime condition.
Potatoes are doing nicely, but would be
improved by rain. Truck crops and gardens
also would be benefited by ygood rains and

it At the Rate of 150 a Minute S
it would take you 3333 minutes or considerably more than two
whole days to count 500,000. Yet the Lumbermens Trust Com
pany hasihat many dollars in capital $500,000 and in addition to
that it has a paid-up surplus of $100,000. -
For every man, woman and child in the City of Portland this
company has two dollars in paid-up capital and surplus. These
facts furnish one reason why the Lumbermens Trust Company is
able to send its buyers all over the West, from Oregon to Wyoming
and from British Columbia to the farthermost parts of California
and the Southwest.
A Secret of Success
If the Lumbermens Trust Company was limited to small capital
it could not afford to maintain a large organization of buying
experts and it would be obliged to confine its activities to a more
inferior grade of securities.
This ability to cover the entire Western market also serves to
broaden the variety of investments on the company's offering list.
We can furnish you with Oregon, Washington, Canadian, Idaho,
Utah, Wyoming or California. Bonds all of them investigated by
our representatives in person.
VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE.
Quite so. And DIVERSIFICATION IS THE MOTTO OF THE
