STRAAVIIKIUUKS ALL SUMMER.
According to Secretary Williamson
of th0 state board of horticulture, the
cherry crop in Oregon will be large
and of good grade. The late rains
have done no damnge, In fact, on the
other hand, have aided the .crop ma
terially. The canneries at Salem, on ac
count of Inability to secure help and
prospects of a large crop, are paying
4 cents a pound for the best grade of
fruit and for the samu variety that
the California canneries are paying S
The strawberry crop has been very
satisfactory, although not as large as
predicted. Pickers have been scarce
and a high price has been paid them,
but despite these conditions the
growers have reason to rejoice.
Crops in the east were ruined and
there was no slumi) in the home
market that affected seriously the
home grower. The season this year
has also been a long one, but the
strawberries are now disappearing.
"The time is coming," says Mr.
Williamson, "when Oregon will have
superb strawberries all summer.
There are places In the coast and Cas
cade ranges where strawberries do
not ripen until the latter part of July.
When the numerous electric lines
contemplated are completed and
these now remote districts are made
accessible, Oregon people
strawberries until the
August and later."
