The place referred to in ket week's
items concerning the colts Injured on

,Jut the arproacb is not completed,
thus allowing stock to go on the
fridge and aorosa. If properly co i
etructed railroad bridges and cattle
guards, as all know, are most eifuetire
barriers, protecting crops and pre
venting danger of injury to stock.

II ig Apple Crop Reported.
Manager Shopurd, of the Apple
Growers Union, has received a report
from a New i ork dealer that sums up
the apple prospects as follows:
In UaundH they nave hotter pros
pects than any time in ten years,
Most of the fruit grown iu Nova
Scotia and along the St. Lawrence i
marketed in Kurope. 'lhe estimated
crop ls 3, 700,000 boxes.
New York bad in 1901 7,000,000
barrels. They expect to have as
many or more this year.
Vermont will have a heavier crop
than in liHii. Much in the crop iu
there two states goes to l'.urone.
New Jersey and Pennsylvania I ave
fair orops. These are all marketed at
Iteporta from Arkansas vary. Si
weeks ago the prospects wore for 50
per cent of a "rop and now the pr.:s
pects are much better, in fact the
best in years.
Missori, llliuois and Kansas report
the best crop since lKm.
Keports from tbe Willamette valleys
Indicate large crops.
'The Pajaro valley in California will
have a large crop.
Tbe latest Irorn Colorado indicates
75 per oeut of a crop.
All sections have not been heard
from, but one of (be largest crops in
years is now tbe judications.
The large i rops In tbe Middle West
will bave no effect on tbe selling price
of our cheap apples, but It is not
thought that fauoy stock for Europe
will be much affected by the large
crop. The uncertainty, however, is
causing some of tbe smaller firing to
hesitate about buying, and they re
Hsking for consignments. There is
yet time for conditions to be consid
erably changed before havrest. Hot
weather may atfeot the apples, severe
bail aud wind storms may do damage,
aud there are many other contingen
cies. In Hood River, there will be some
damage by sunburn, at this time the
indications beiug about 5 per cent.
