The delay in picking, caused by
the. wet weather, enabled the dry
ers to catch up with- incoming
fruit.' Prunes in this district rip
ened almost over. night and unTesa
cool dry weather comes it will be
impossible to care for them within
the. keeping period,
;; Dry ing. tests to date, indicate,
that the. prunes are running, fully
15 per cent below normal, a bush

over 1? pounds dried. Twenty
"pounds Is the usual figure. This
will; result in at least one grade

only fairly started. Of the 200
acres "there, only about 35 had
been, pulled, before., the rain of
Wednesday night. A start waa
made of pulling the flax there
with a couple of the Martosz
machines, but they had not been
perfected sufficiently to handle
the. bundles. So three state ves
sot pulling machines (Canadian
machines like the other. 14 in the
Salem district) were sent down,
with expert machine men to work
them. It was thought two would
be enough, to take care of the 200
acres, but a third was sent in or
der to be ready In case one of the
others got out of order. The
flax on the 200 acres did not ripen
very fast. It was late sown. But
it Is doing better, and a Very fair
yield is expected. Not $40 a ton
flax, but an average of about $30
a ton flax. But the seed is fine.
It will make a good yield, plump,
entirely free from flax rust. It
will likely be used for planting in
the valley next year, or most of it.
