The Prune Problem.
The tin, o is at last hero when that
great Orcgou staple, the prune, is rea
sonably sure of a harvest. It muy, in
deed, bo many years before last year's
disastrous history will be repeated, and
whether so or not, no ono can doubt
that the output of prunes, especially tbe
Italians, cbiofly growu along the Ump
ipia and in the Columbia river valley
about l'ortland, will soon be enormous
The state census report show 28t,000
bushels ol plums and prunes raised in
lS'JI, as against 150,000 bushels in 1HS4.

board of horticulture's estimate of the
state's total fruit crop iu 18U7 ia 50,000,
000 to 00,000,000 pounds, four-tilths of
the increase being iu prunes.
Observers agree that the pruuo prob
lem now is the problem of successful
marketing. Necessary work baa been
done in examination of soils, iu study of
01 jhard planting and cultivation, and iu
induction and quarantine ol diseased
Irutl and plants, and no let-up is feared
in l bene guild works. The ditliculty Is to
get the farmer to grado aud pack the
Iruit properly audio market it intelli
gently. This may be atated differently
by wiyiiig that the pioblem is to got the
farmer to apply business methods to this
now branch of his industry. Competi
tiun imposes burdens upon the farmer he
U unused to bearing. He has never
learned to cater to his customer's fancies
or to make his wares attractive. Wheat
and wool lose uothing by the purely
utilitarian aspect they assume to hiiu,
any more than primroses hy the river'
biim miller from the gaze of those to
whom they are yellow primroses and
nothing more. Thou it comes awkward
to him to net in a hurry about making
up his miud to tell prunes wlfon the
l ratio iu buying. He much prefers lo
"hold" thetu, as ha holds his wheat or
hops, waitiug for the riss that too often
fails to come. By the time tie has made
up bis miud what hu will take for his
prunes, the trade is supplied aud no
body wants them.
We ought to have a good year iu Ore

hops and wool will bring fair prices.
The prunegrower should lend his ban I
to ihia revival and shsre in Ka benefits.
Ha can do Ihia only by realising that
appearance count, for a great deal in
aelling table food, as the creameries
have shown him in lha caaeof butter;
by grading his prunes narrowly and con
scientiously, and by learning from the
markets that dried prone are not
Ixitight and sold every day in the year,
like wheat or wool, hot bought tip In the
fall, like walnuts or any other dried
crop, The question of marketing ( runes
is not a question of catching the top
quotation, aa with wheat or hot, but of
selling when buyers ara buying. This
will apply either to the customary salra
through commission men or tbe co-oter

England's complete dependence on
