Tim weather ban been beautiful for
October with frequent showont to re
fresh DitbtuivH uud enable farmers to
now Hiiminur-fnllowp, but thu ground
linn not wot down Biiluciont to plow
stubble or break new land. The rains
continue, however, unil wo may hooh
lmvo enough to give farmcra all they
need to iuh!i their operations ia far ax
TI10 wlioat market remains as bore
toore, with no improvement abroad or
at home. Portland quotations range
from $1.20 to $1.25 per cental for valley,
mid fi to 10 contH lem for Kastcrn. Tho
Salem milU pay (U cents, and so far as
any piwpoeU show there is no hope
for improvement at an early day.
OatH are not very abundant and wo
rather look for them to bo higher and
scarcer lato in tho mmsoii ; pricca range
JlSo to tOo per bushel.
Hay is the name as oats; tlio crop U
short in tho valley.
Potatoes mo tcnico cotnparwl with
ordinary yearn, and there cannot Iw
much, if any more, than half n eivp in
this valley. Prices of courso coirospond
and show tho changed conditions.
Dried fruits aro n better price because
our fruit crop is light. Pruned bell for
, lOo, and more for really choice make.
Pried apples aro 8J0 in Sau Francisco
of tho now crop and command 8c
bote. Owing to tho failure of fruit in
tho East as also in a measure hero and
in California, dried apples will lKar a
good price and wo recommend to our
friends to &avo what theyhavo and make
the. most of tho opportunity.

index of tho growth of Portland and

Ho hna an many friends as ho has ac

Solo Agont3 for Oreuon and Washington for
American Fruit Drier.
Stavor & Walker have beon selling
many of these fruit driers tho present
season and they give universal satisfac
tion. Thoy havo one in operation at
the Mechanics' Fair, Portland, that is
managed by Mr. Winston, of Hoseburg,
an experienced mnn nt tho business,
who owns one of tho beet driors in use,
nnd has also n patent for ono of bis own
invention that is very excellent Wo
saw him there nnd ho assured us that
he considered tho American superior to
any he had ever seen, and intended to
use it hereafter. This in' an old estab
lished indention, dating from 18711, and
has many new features since then. All
its points have been studied scientific
ally. Its heater is a great improvement
in saving fuel nnd heat, and is con
structed on correct principles. Tho
drier probably has no superior, and will
turn out apples thoroughly cured In two
bourn. Wo have a No. 1 set up and in
operation at our home in S.alem, not ilvo
minutes walk from tho Fakmkk ollice,
nnd can testify to its splondid work.
Anyone wishing to purchase a drier and
improtc tlte liigu rates dried apples are
now worth will 11 ml it to their ndvnu
tago to bring in any fruit thoy wish to
dry, or vegetables, and test the quality
of this drier by actually making uso of
it. Wo will litrmsu luel to wlioovor
wishes to make such a test '1 heso driors
can no lurmsneu oi ait sues, mm aro
worth from $50 to $100.
