of the party wore, therefore, com

hours on the enl;.
"The wind was blowing a perfect
gale when we reached the summit,"
said Mr. Weister, in spetikiiiK of the
trip, "and it was bitterly cold. We
came near freezing and during the
three hours we Lad to do the 'war

to accomplish the illumination.

OREGON FRUIT IN
ARRANGE TO FORM
AN IOWA SOCIETY
W. F. larnway, the Iowa jeweler,
located in the Slooom building, it
arranging to form an Iowa society
in Hood River. Dr. Lai away has a
book ou bis counter in which" he is
asking nil lowaus to register their
names, date when they left that state
fur Oregon, and thoir present occupa
tion. Later in the summer a genuine Iowa
picnic is being planned for. it is
thought this will bring out the lowaus
in full force. Over 40 names have
been registered with Mr. Laraway,
and he says only a beginning has been
made. It is surprising bow many
residents of Hood Iiiver once lived
in the state of Iowa.
Fruit conditions are now favorable
throughout Oregon. While i.s a gon
er ! tiling no fruit v.iil yield a record
breaking crop, the quality of the fruit
bid f dr to l,e g .oil in d the yitld will
be sat sf ;ct( r tr in the market stand
point. Apple in i ll pirts of tho state
will yield only I n!t' a crop, but ou 80
count of this very t.iot tho fruit will
be of much hotter rjcnlity and a more
marketable product than were it a
full crop and the trees heavily loaded.
In tho eastern (ait of the state,
poaches, pi ars, nines and plums will
all yield n full i r p. In Southern
Oregon and tho W illbimotto Valley,
either of which sections produce more
fiuit thmi Ki stern Oregon, prunes
and plums will yield 70 per cent of a
crop, peaches about (JO per cent and
pears, half a ciop. These figures are
biisml upon careii 1 estimates and are
reliable, (.'berries are everywhere
yielding about 7" per cent of a full
yield, while r iiiiill lYuils are yielding a
full crop in all parts of tho state.
(rowers and dealers figure on l'JO,
(XtO bales ns Oregon s probable hop
yield for V.i't. '1 his is an increase of
one-third over last year's yield. A
part of tlii-: estimated increase is due
to a larger aciia,'e. but ti e crop is at
