According to all reports, the east
end of the county, the apple growers
in this section have been hard hit by
the sudden change in temperature and
the heavy frosts, during the last week
or ton days. A considerable part of
the crop had already been placed out
of danger, but there was a large
quantity of apples picked and ready
for packing in the orchards when the
weather changed and it is expected
that these will be unfit for shipment
now. . '
In the west end of the county tiie
damage to fruit will not be es great
because of the relatively smaller crop,
but many of the farmers who have
been planning on reaping large re
turns from their potato acreage this
year find It almost a total loss. The
frost has reached several inches into
the ground and many of the tubers
Yakima report that a sudden drop
in temperature has frozen 2$ carloads
of apples in the Yakimavalley. Thou
sands of boxes of apples, still on the
ground or standing in open packing
sheds, were badly frozen. There are
frozen apples in every part of the val
ley hut more in the Naches than in
any other section.
' In his anxiety to save his crop Sun
day night, Walter Arnold put a fire in
his packing shed that got beyond con
trol in the night, burning the shed and
its contents. The loss was 32500.

both the proposed routes one from
