Fur Heck FnilliiK Saturday June is.
TIimcouI, cloudy, and showery weather
of the previous week continued up to
to-day. It is now clear nnd very warm.
Tho wuitther llutt lias prevailed lata been
worth untold wealth to the producers of
Oreijoii, and from every section conies
the most tliittcrinn titid "eiii'oiiruiiin re
ports. Tho ruins were especially copi
ous in the Williimi'Uo valley nnd along
the const where from one to threo inches
fell. In Southern Orcnon over one inch
full nt HoHshnr;, hut decreased south
ward to Jaekson county whore less than
onu-ha't inch fell. In Eastern Oregon
wus more than the average June ruin
fall, it varying from onn to two inches.
The rains wore most opportune and have
given new life to (1,11 vegetation.
Fall and early sown wheat is now
thought to be past any luinn from atmos
pheric causes. It is filing well and of
good quality the "tools large and stand
ing very good. From present appear
ances the crop will be more than tin av
erugo one. From Umatilla conn; reports
that it will bo tho lurgiist crop over har
vested in theooimty.
Late sown spring wheitt is coming up
and fair yields of good hay crops will be
obtained from it, From every suction of
the Willamette, valley, reports are en
couraging showing an enthusiastic fuel
ing among tho farmers. Some clover
hay wus down when tho rains began,
and was slightly damaged. Timothy
hay has been grcutly improved. Oats
are doing well. Corn is thriving, but in
sections of ouslern Oregon the, weather
is too cool. Hops are gruwing Manly
and give prouiiao of a goad yield. In
Gilliam and Morrow, ryu harvest is in
progress and yields very good.
Codlin moths have not done any dam
ago yet. Spraying is however rocom
niondud us a provuntativo. Beaches and
apples, short crop in southern Oregon,
other fruits very pluntilul. The potato
yield promises to bo thw largest in the
history of the state. Every section re
ports them doing finely. Through
the stock county, grass on the
range is good and cattle are in prime
condition. The rain extended through
Crook, Urant and other interior counties
insuring tho hay und grain crop.
The week closes with tho moBt flatter
