Sunday there was one of the hardest
thnuder storms in the Applegate
valley that has been ssen for some
time. After the lightning and
thunder hurt ceased, it began to rain
aud it fell in torrents and the
ground was a flood of water. The
lightniuK struck near the hoate of
R. F. LeWman, which gave him a
light shock, while cutting wood in
his woodshed, some 10 feet from the
house. Another flash following hit
in the river. The new rurai tele
phone bells wire kept steadily ringing
by the heavy flashes, but no harm
was done. The central communica
tion was cut off until this morning.
This evening the dark, heavy clouds
are raising and thunder can be heard
rambling in the southwest. There
are at least 350 tons of hay down in
the Williams and Applegate valleys
which a rain would delay hauling
for few days.
The bop crops is looking fine and a
large yield is anticipated. Many fear
lice, owing to the damp weather.
Tha apple and pear crops are
more than average, while the prune
and peach crops are only up to the
average all other crops are satis

Banner Strawberry District.
Hood River is the banner straw
berry district of the Pacific Coast,
leadiug in both quantity shipped and
profitable prices realized. Strawber
ries are coming to be one of the big
fruit products of Rogue River Valley
and with intelligent methods ia
growing and marketing tbey can be
made one of onr most profitable
fruits. But.the growers of this Valley
have many things k learn and can
profit by the experience of the Hood
River and other growets. One is
that it will only be profitable to
raise two kinds of strawberries, an
extra early shipper and a standard
canuing berry. By growing the ship
ping berries on a warm south slope
np in the thermal belt away from tbe
frosts.and .irrigating the plants witb
warm water ont of an opeu broad
reservoir aud not witb ice cold well
water aud by proper mobbing and
cultivating it will be .possible If or
Rogue River Valley strawberries to be
iu thu Portland, Seattle, Victoria aud
other northern mark.ts fully 10 days
ahead of Hood River, Willamette or
Yakima berries. In that 10 days the
fancy prices are had aud the big
profit is made oft tbe beiry patch.
With the competition that will come
from other sections that are taking
np berry growing it will not pay to
ship late strawberries. But the new
Grants Pass cannery will afford a
pro tfi able market for the late berries.
It will berefore be only profitable for
the growers here to plant the very
earliest variety and the best canning
variety and n o other.

Rive and the outcome of this year'i
' 'The strawberry season has practic.
ally close in Hood River tor thu
year. However, ttiere are still daily
consignments going forward byexJ
'This year's a crop has been prsc I
tically 100 per . cent larger than tht
berry output of last year. The total
strawberry crop of 1U0G was about
car loads; while the orjp this yeat
will amount to about 45 cars.
The prices that have prevailed thii
season have not been as large as the I
received last year. Tbit is im
mainly to tbe fact that the placet I
in Oregon, Washington and Montam
that have been .our most open niarket I
in former years are now being sop.
plied by local growers in tbe re
lhe state of Washington, that w&i
at one time one of tbe heaviest cot:
Burners, has shipped hundreds of carl
loads of berries into the eastern mar l
kets this year, and the Bitter Rooil
counrty iu Montana has also hadi
heavy yield this season.
It is evident that as the various teg I
nous of the northwest are beinil
brought under irrigation systems, that I
the several localities will product!
larger crops of small fruits. But ill
still remains that the Hood Rivet I
strawerry is still without a peer m I
shipper. Our berries have been chip. I

arrived in good condition. There hai I
