and have let a contract to a Minnesota
man to put in the machinery, at a
cost of about $40,000, the work to be
completed by Septemqer 20.
It has often been remarked that the
cherry season this year is somewhat
earlier than usual. A strange coin
cidence is that many of the trees thai
have already yielded a large crop are
budding anew, and are even white
with blossoms, and bid fair to bear a
larger second crop this season than
Judge Washburne returned from
Lake county yesterday mo ning. He
brought several curiosities among

Marshfield News: Henry Schroed

and maple wo d on the Coquille,
which will be forwarded to Chicago,
where arrangements have been made
for its disposal. He is paying f-om $7
to $10 per acre for the privilege of

Roseburg Review: Reports from all
portions of the county are indicative of
an abundant yield of grain. We have
talked with a great many fanners and
nave not heard one word ot disparage
ment of the 1 ieli of spring-sown. Fall
sown crops will not give as good yield,
as the rains came to j late to do any

The rains have been succeeded
throughout the entire northwest by
the most delightful "growing" weather.
Our crop of cereals wa s long ago as
sured and now that of fruit and vege
tables is as certain. Oregon and
Washington alone keep up the average
in the great wheat crop aggregate, Cal
