Don't forget that commencing
September 1st aud continuing daily
for two mouths, tickets will be on
sale at almost every railroad station
in the East to all points iu Oregon
and the Northwest at what has come
to be popularly known as "Colonist
rates." These rates are the cheap
est general long distance rates ever
established, and enable one to reach
Oregon from any part of the United
States at but a trifle more than one
cent a mile. They are the greatest
inceutive to colonization and pro
gressive home building of any
known agency, and if the restless,
dissatisfied resident of the East is
made to know before hand the ad
vantages he can enjoy here, the
problem is solved, and the star ol
empire will continue to move stead
Now is the time to spread the
gospel of Oregon, so that it may be
heard and heeded by the time the
rates go into effect. Send one name
or two, or a do.en, and you will be
exerting a worthy influence toward
the upbuilding of our state. Send
them to your nearest Southern Pa
cific agent or to XX' ru. McMurray,

thing can be done to prevent the

Hops in the Dalles district pro
mise an early crop. X'ermin have
appeared in nearly all olthe yards,
but are liug held in check by the
hot weather and vigorous spraying.
Prospects of low prices early in the
season caused many of the growers
to cultivate lightly in order to save
expense, and as a consequence the
crop will be light. No trouble is
anticipated iu securing pickers for
the yards in the Dallas district.

from the most couservative dealers
of this district, who have made a
tour of the hopgrowing territory

cool weather has been ideal for hop
growing, aud the quality at this
time is above the average. The
hops are in splendid condition aud

sudden change in weather condi
tions intervenes, the Lane county
crop will be up to the average iu
quantity and quite alnjve iu the
quality of the hops.

Woodburn, Or., Aug. 4. There
will be a larger hop yield iu this
section this season than iu any pre
vious year and the quality will be
mostly choice. The lice have prac
tically disappeared and all but a
few old yards that have leeu given
no attention are making a fine
showing. Some of the old yards
are looking better than for the past
five years. The new yards show
up well and will make an excellent
record this year. A party who has
made a thorough inspection of the
yards in this vicinity was in the
city yesterday and reports the out
look very bright, corroborating the
opiniou of others as to large yield
and good quality. Oreeonian.

Hillsboro, Or.. Aug. 4. The
hop crop of Washington county this
season bids fair to be Joper cent less
than last year's product. This
shortage is due to lack of cultiva
tion, owing to bad weather at a
time when yards should have had
care; to lice and Ixk of spraying;
to the fact that there is some blight
in many yards that last season were
free from fault.
Last year's Washington county
product went about 8000 bales, and
it is estimated that this season the
output will be slightly over 6000
bales. In many districts the lice
have been prolific and. as spraying
is expensive, many yards were not
given any spraying whatever. So
far as can le IcaraeJ the quality ol
hops is up to the standard, this
county generally ItaJiug the state
in this regard.
