The lovely Indian summer weather of
the last week has helped out the farmers
and hop growers. Threshing is almost
done and hop-picking in the late yards
will likely be over by the 30th, if this
weather holds out. Hops are still in fair
condition, and any doubtful hills are be

first-rate. The grain, with the exception
of some oats, will mostly pass as first-rate,
and none lost so far.
The roads leading to town from the hop
yards are not ns pleasant to travel over as

crop seem to forget the dignity that ought
to pertain to man and womanhood and
American citizenship, and their appear
ance and actions would lead one to be

stronger than water. Our roads are only
sixty feet wide, and ought to be made

zens curtailed. The hop business may
be good to bring in money at times, but
the final reckoning may prove that we
would be better without it.
