Good Market Outlook.
The strawberry harvest in Hood River
is now well tinder way. Hie .weather
continues warm, anil the berries' are
ripening rapidly. There were berries
enough on hand to make a carload ship
ment Monday night, but owing to the
heavy demands from local markets
where price still continue good, car
load shipments will not be made until
the latter part of the week.
While the season gave promise early
In the year of being later than usual,
the first shipment was mode May 10,
only three days later than last year. The
berries are ripening more rapidly than
in former years.which gives the growers
the benefit of high prices always pre
vailing early in the season. Four dol
lars a crate has been the ruling price so
The market outlook and weather con
ditions are very favorable. Berries are
up to their usual high standard ot ex
cellence, and with plenty of irrigating
water, no heavy rains or excessively hot
weather this year's crop of strawberries
should leave the Hood Kiver farmers a
neat little bunk account at the end of

far into the future, for unforeseen con-

berries are ripening a little faster just
now than the Mood Kiver berries, and
while they are of a fairly good quality,
the Hood River berries have brought 60
cents more on crate in the same mar
kets. "The Pasco country will be a great
strawberry country next year. Hood
River exported berry plants to that
country by the hundreds of thousands

the sandy soil of the Pasco country, but
it remains to be Been whether the ber
ries hold up on longdistance'shipments,
as berries grown at Hood River. Colo
rado will have a larger crop than in for
mer years. The Denver Fruit and Pro
duce Co. have just inforihed us that
they expect to handle 175 cars of straw
berries over and above the local de
mands. The crop will be at its height
about lune 15 to 20.
The Arkansas berries will be out. of
the way in a few days, says Mr. David
son, but the Missouri berries will hold
out for a couple of weeks yet. Mr.
Davidson says his company expects to
put a carload of berries in Ht. Louis
every day for the first two weeks in June,
provided the weather will permit it.
Hood River berries in the World's fair
city should afford a distinct advertise
ment for Oregon and Hood River.
While shippers of Hood River fruit
do not expect a car shortage this year,
as was the case last season, Mr. David

The arsenic has been examined and I should consider
