The Hop Outlook.
The outlook for hop growers at pros-
eut Is not at all favorable, says tbe
SUverton Appeal. A few weeks ago

be worth from 7 to 8 cents per pound
for a choice article, but since tbat time
the market Is ou the decline. From
good authority it is estimated that
growers will do well to get 6 or 5) per
pound, The Butteville Hop Growers'
Association has a large membership,
and heretofore held meetings regularly
lu tbe Interest of growers. The
elation in former years has purchased
a large amount of hop supplies, there
by saving considerable money to the
growers by getting a reduction by buy.
ing In large lota. This year the asso
ciation will not even have a meeting.
The members have decided not to
purchase any supplies, for the reason
that tbey are afraid to take tbe risk.
Tbe price of picking will undoubtedly
be reduced this season. Twenty-five
cents per box will probably be tbe
price paid. If pickers can be secured
at this price, this will reduce tbe cost
of production, and hops cau be put in
the bale tor 4 cent a pouud. Even if
bops are worth enough to be profitable
to tbe grower, there is yet another very
perplexing question, and that Is to get
the money to pick with. Owing to
the stringency In tbe money market,
it will be extremely difficult to get

From all appearances the potato
crop will be rather light this fall. Al
ready the vines have assumed a yellow

as Urge a a marble on them. This Is
very discoui aging to tbe farmers as the
potato crop heretofore has been heavy
and no prioe. This year it seems as
though the price will be exceedingly
good. The cause of this light crop Is
supposed to be from no rains and
abundant hot weather.
