Hon. T. R. Coon has been in corre
spondence with berry growers' societies
in the East and has gathered much
valuable information In regard to how
they do business and their prospects
for the future.
From the Lancaster, Ark., union it
wus learned that 6,000 crates of straw
berries were shipped last season and
they expect to have 20,000 the coming
season. Growers realized last year over
$1. per crute. Acreage has, been in
creased and the patches, having been
Well cultivated, were not affected much
by the drouth of last summer. All
growers belong to and ship with the
Lancaster horticultural association.
The ussociatioii does not employ any
ageii'ts to go out and hunt up markets.

berries were shipped last season and
the average net price received by grow
ers was 38 cents per crate. The drouth
affected the strawberry patches iu this
locality and not more than half a crop
is expected next season, but the in
creased acreage will bring the ship
ments up to about the same as. last
year. Sarcoxie sent out ten agents last
season. .
The secretary of the Columbus, Ky.,
association writes that 50 carloads of
strawberries were Bhlpped from that
iilui.t ln.r. apnann. unci although the
drouth killed out many of the old
patches, the increased acreage will
bring the shipments up to about the
same as last year, wheii growers real
ized from $1 to $1.25 a crate. This
union does' not send but agents. Their
shipping season begins about the first
of May.
From Milton, Oregon, it was learned
that growers were very much dissatis-
jiea wnn inst year s returns auu many
" have plowed up! their patches, and
very few new plants have been set. No
statistics concerning number of cases
shipped nor prices received could be
obtained. '

teen children, 8 girls and 9 boys; 110
grand . children, and 76 great grand

203. If any mothers in Wasco county

are thousands of our fellow beings in

' - The Prodigal Daughter.
The -prodigal son . niay return, but
how about the prodigal daughter? As
far as the world is concerned, there is
no mercy for the prodigal daughter.
The son may wallow in the mire and
tilth of pollution, feed upon the husks
of sin and infamy, and he will come
back in becoming raiment and knock
at the door of society; lie is eagerly re
ceived within its portals; marriageable
daughters simper and smile sweetly,
and fond mammas are very gracious
and kind in feeling it their womanly
duty to encourage the fellow to do bet
ter now that lie has sown his wild oats.
But the prodigal daughter ah, hush!
Breathe not her name within the pre
cincts of society; Keep her out; push
her to a suicide's grave, appeasiugyour
righteous indignation, return to pelting
and caressing the "dear boy" who lias
made a start to get back to the path of
rectitude. Teh to one he never comes
back He knows he can sin and still
keep his place in society.
An Expensive Luxury.
We wonder if the men who denounce
the administration for suggesting the
retirement of the greenbacks have ever
given a moment's thought to the en
quiry, What have these greenbacks
cost us? There are three hundred and
forty-six millions of them. To create
the gold reserve for resumption in 1879
bonds had to be sold to the amount of
$95,000,000. During 1894-95-6 $262,.
315,400 more bonds were sold to protect
the snme reserve. Thus to keep $346,
000,000 of, greenbacks in circulation we
pay interest on $357,000,000 of Indebted
ness incurred by them. Not only this
but we have already, since 1879, re
deemed the whole sum nearly twice
over while, practically, they are ajl un
redeemed and outstanding yet. Jrook
