A WORD ABOUT STRAWBERRIES
Location, Culture and Man makes the berry. We are handling
Morrison's mountain berries, unquestionably the Finest Flavored
STRAWBERRY brought to this market. Not necessary to buy
two boxes of this fruit in order to get one; for canning and preserv
ing they are just what you want. Nothing saved in putting up
cheap over-ripe fruit because it takes same quantity of sugar.
Remember the place,
The White House Grocerv.

A PROFUSION OF ROSES
Grcxnts Pass Rose Gardens H&ve
Abundance of Flowers
Such roses cost $1.50 per dozeu
where I came from." Such was the
remark of a Minneapolis man as be
idmired a bouquet of somo of our
roses last week. Not only was lie
well inside the truth, but in many
places such roses as Grants Pass gar
dens are now showing, are 11 ?t to be
found even Iu hothouses.
The past season lias been very favor
able for roses, nnd tho blossoms never
were fin-r. It is a constant marvel to
eastern people how we call raiso such
beautiful roses outdoors. ' The secret
is in Our mild w hiter aud the large
amount of spring suushiue.
Anybody can have roses in prolusion
1 Grants Pass with - vory little
trouble. They are easily propagated
from cuttings, and 011 account of our
long season, make as much growth in
one year as the ordinary rose w hich is
sold for a two year old. There is
hardly a catalogued variety which
will not give good results with us.
This spring all of tho gardens which
have "Beauty of Glazenwood" bushes
area mass of salmon and orange color,
the blossoms almost hiding the bush.
Marechal Niel was also at its best and
one, two year oni .oisti set our last
spriug produced at least SO large per
fect flowers. A walk along our resi
dence streets w ill show a profusion of
bloom, not often ou, and such varie
ties as tho La France family, Bride,
Duchess do Brabans, Paul Neyron,
Etoilo de Lyon, Catherine Mirmet,
Gloire de lvon, Marie Henrictto,
Gen'l Jacqueminot, w ill be seen iu all
their glory. Paul Neyron ofteu at
tains a size oi seven inches across,
and is a constant bloomer.
Roses begin to bloom abont May 1,
and last till December I, although it
is not an exception to pick pretty buds
in December. It is dittleult. to say
whether tho spring or fall rosea are
the finest, as the latter blossoms have
a beauty of fragrance and coloring
peculiarly their own.
Oregon is a rose state, but we doubt
if any part of it can show liner roses
than those which may uow be enjeyed
