the fruit crops of the country this

the fruit grown In tbe vicinity of

in making this statement.
Air. Kae a tra.els since l ebrtiHiy

'There will te about twelve cars ol

Mr. llennlngsen," "aud 1 have al

crop is very good thia year. We were
not butt much by the freeze, although
i undestaud tlie orop around The
Dalles is badly Injured. 1 intend to

ey shipping them out green, aud be
sides the quality is above Ihe average.
liiey are ot large alze and should sell
readily ou the eastern markets.
1 believe there is as much money
to be made ou prunes in Alosier aa iu
apples, and for myself, prefer the
prunes to tho tipples. They bear full
every year, and require very little
work. There ia no spraying, pruning
r thinning of the tiuit. The only
work required is cultivation of the
orchard and picking the fruit. The
crop cau be turued into cash as soon
as gathered, aud that euds tbe mattet
until the next season.
1 estimate tbat the Alosier or
chards wilt average ten tons ot prunes
to the acre, whicti will bring f'20 a tun

There were a few years when primes
were very low aud growers were dis
pendent, but the average baa been
good, and 1 would prefer 40 acres ol

(ieniiany H ants Our Apples.
New York, August 22. There has
been considerable talk about high du
ty ou American fruit going to (Jor
uiauy, and a misunderstanding of the
situation seems to prevail iu some
quarters. Tho duty is not prohibito
ry. On the other baud (Jerniauy
wants our fruit.
Speaking of the prosepeta for Amer
ican apples In (ierinany this coming
season, P. W. Duncan, apple export
er, aud agent of Trinim & Gersten
koru, of Hamburg, tbe largest fruit
salesmen in Clermany, says: "Not
withstanding the fact that Germany
this season lias a lair orop of fruit,
there will be a large demand fur
American apples. During seven years,
from lH'Jil to HHi'2 -Oil, Hamburg took
P. !'.!,;"! d barrels of American apples,
while in three years, llHUi-l to 1U05-U,
Hamburg took (U'2,175 barels, when
(ierinany iu l!)o:t-4, bud one ot tbe
laigest crops ot apples ever grown.
Hamburg will pay more for a first
class batrel ol tipples than any other
foreign market iu tbe world, aud this
season we have just the quality of
fruit Ihe (ioniums want."
As to the duty of fXJ cents per bur
ial, Air. Duncan saya he doea not
think this will alToct tbe business iu
the least, as the duty of l.u7 ou
Canadian apples, shuts out a veiy
large Canadian export to Germany,
which, as a result, will make the de
mand lor Atnorioa.i apples all the

BIG PRICES FOR
GREAT CROP DOES NOT AFFECT US
Average Price This Year May JJo High
er Than I, ant Union's Sales Are
Tbe superiority of the Hood River
apple over tbat of other fruit baa keen
fully demonstrated by the sales of
Hood Kiver fruit which have taken
place here in the last lew days. While
buyers who have beeu here t i bid on
Hood Kiver fruit have bought flue
quality lieu Haris apples iu Alissunii
which they say cau be delivered iu
Uurope this year for $2 a barrel a
three bushel barrel at that Hood Kiv
er fruit has sold tor more thau that
for box fruit containing one bushel.
Iluyers who have traveled the oountiy
ovei from oast to coast estimate the
crop this year at 72,UOU,0OU barrels as
aguiust 2h,(.KH.),aKI last year. 1-mrgor
they say than the famous crop of lH!Hi,
which year previous to this oue broke
all records for apples. Still tbey have
come west for apples and have paid
for them prices tiuit exceeded the ex
pectations ot the must sanguine.
While it cannot be learned exactly
what was paid tor the crop of apples
disposed of by the Apple Grow rs'
Uuiou Monday, those in a position to
kuow say that it will average higher
thau last yeai " hich was the highest
knowu iu tho history of apple grow
ing iu Hood Kiver. Purchases made
by buyers independent of Ihe uuiuti
in the last few days brought the top
notch price of d per box for Spilzen
bergs aud 2,"i for Newtowns and it
is said thut the uuiou has received a
higher price than this fur these varie
ties of upplus. The union's truit was
bought by tho firm ot K. P. Loom is
& Co., who were the highest bidders,
winning out over Kae & Hatfield, who
last year bandied tho product of the
uuiuu. The purchase of the Loom is
company will include about Ou ours of
10,0(iU boxes and is the largest pur
chase ot apples ever made by one 11 nil
at Hood Kiver. This does not include
the entire product of Hie Apple Grow
ers' Uuiou, but when it Is knuwu thut
the entire production uf the valley
last year was only 00,000 boxes, it will
readily be seen how lunch In uie fruit
will be shipped from Hood Kiver this
year thau last and how much greater
tbe leturus will be to growers. In
la'rt it is estimated at double or about
120,000 boxes fur all varieties.
Without the increase la prico which
growers uie said to have received thia
year, and taking the average price per
box for Instyear's fruit tho tipple crop
of Hood Kiver should bo woitb IfTOO,-
000 more than it was then.
Any increase added to tbia will
make the figures run up vory rapidly
and show u marked increase iu the
While the olllcers of tho uuiou will
out at present make any statemeut us
to tbe exuet prices received they say
thut tbe sale has been a most natisfao-
tory one, but that fur business reas
ons they do not care to announce
them us yet, but will do so later.
Tbe bidders will nut in alto any
statement iu regaid to theii bids us
some of the unsuccessful oues are still
iu the market fur some of tho Hood
Uiver fruit aud naturally consider it
bad business policy to make known
tho amount of their bids when tbey
are still trying to purchase from itide
pedeut growers. It can be stated
however, on the authority of oue of
Hood Kiver's most astute apple men
thut when the prico is known it will
be tbe most conclusive evidence of
the superiority of Hood Kiver apples
that has ever been given and settles,
be says, for all time the question as
to the future ot Hood Kivui apples.
Kals Us Stepmother.
Tho icnneuinon fly Is very small,
hut is capable of compassing tbe de
struction "of many a caterpiliar.thongh
not one-thousaudtb part of the size
of a single victim. This fly perches
ou the back ot the grub, pierces its
skin with a sharp hollow noodle where
with it is furnished, and the force nf
tho stub projects an egg under the
skiu into the llesh.
As each wound is made tbe cater
pillar shows a certain amount of un
easiness, but dues not intermit its
eating. The eggs uf the ichneumon
are speedily hatched within the body
of the grub, and they devour the fatly
portions of the caterpillar, shrewdly
leaving the vital organs untouched.
When the time arrives for the cater
pillar to change into chrysalis the ich
neumon grubs eat their way out of
their foster mother and tit once spin
for themselves a number of yellow
cocoons, aiming which the dying cut
erpillar is often hopelessly entuuged
and where it expires.
