'We are informed that in no other state or country is net fishing
permitted on so small a stream, as the Nestucca river. Opponents of

Oregon strawberries that are won
derful in size, color and flavor.
The Bits for Breakfast man can
give gustatory testimony to this,
from samples tried, through the
generosity of Mr. Peterson.- He
grew four-fifths of an acre of these
berries last year, and realized on
his crop 1400 gross. He has finer
berries this year, and more to the
acre. His sales are partly to the
retail trade and partly to the
stores, and some to the canneries.
This is a great strawberry year
and the ' greatest strawberry dis

number of small fortunes made by
the growers this year, and some
good sized ones, too.
