chargo d'nffaircs, M. Planchon, ha In
formed Prince Ohlng, president of tho
foreign allien, that no further step In

Warm Rain Needed, Otherwise the Out
look la Very Favorable.
, Crops in Marlon county are In good
condition as a genera) thing, and there
i nothing yet to ditcourago the farmer.
It would to better for every thing, how
over, should thero bo a heavy, warm
rain, which would havo a two-fold ben

cessary moisture now demanded in

Fruit I coming on in good shape, the
load of bloiwms indicating a plentiful

Thu weathor most dangerous to fruit in
this country la that which brings the
cold, beating, sleety rains late in April,
when the pollen Is in the blossom, to

purposes. Thore is always a good crop
of fruit when that clan of rains comes
before the blossoming I far nd van rod
or when tho warm spring arrives with
out much rain at all.
Thu hop crop is at that point where
thero I merely speculation a to the ro
suits. As usual, much is heard of mis

shorlago In prospect for this year, but
past experience lis shown that In many
rears when similar predictions were

Sliver Lake promises to be the tlm
bor cruiser' headquarter this year,
arid with it two newspaper is expected

affairs of Lake county in the fnture.
The extension of the railroad from
8hanlkoto Deschutes promises to divert
all the trade north of Uoosn Lake Val
ley from Fan Francisco to Portland,
and give passengers a shorter and
better route via stago to tho railroad,
as there is a good road at nil soasons
of tho year from Lakovlow to the Des
chutes, and no mountains to cross.
The season Is very backward. No
gras ha yet started and sheepmen aro
anxious, a tho lambing ooason Is at
