With large crops and high
prices, this cannot be otherwise
than a prosperous season for
Oregon. The products of the
arms, forests and rivers will
net the producers of the state a
good $100,000, 000. The. crops

Prunes' are not only very abun

year is of normal proportions,

The onion crop promises to be
a little larger than last year's
and it is almost certain that val

Oregon is coming to the front
as one of the great dairy states
of the Union and as time passes
its importance in this respect
will increase. Conditions here
are ideal for successful promo
tion of the dairy industry, as is
shown by the fact that the total
value of butter, cheese and con
densed milk produced this year
exceeds that of any other line.
Oregon farmers are receiving
better prices for their milk an J
cream than the farmers of any
other state in the Union. The
product turned out by the cream
eries and cheese factories long
ago attracted the attention of
tradesmen in other states. Tilla
mook cheese, especially, is known
far and wide as the best cheese
produced in the west.
The poultry industry is grow
ing, but does not keep pace with
the growth of population. The
price paid producers for poultry
and eggs are high, and are likely
to continue so for years to come.
The Oregon growers will make
more money out ot their hops
