Tbero stems to lie a general
awakening to, and recognition of,
the fact that the Willamette valley
Is nn especially favored country for
fruit culture. The acreage in fruits
is rapidly increasing, and this fall
hd next spring will find many now
and extensive orchards planted.
There need be no further demonstra
tion that, wherever orchards have
beeu properly cultivated, trimmed
aud cared fo1, fruit growing, nud
especially that of the prunes, is a
very remunerative business iu this
valley, and one that is destined to
become a prominent pait of the
horticulture in the futuie for this
pirt of Oregon.
Kalemi9in the very center of this
gieat fruit region. AVhat is said of
any particular section can be applied
wilh even greater force to the vi
cinity of Salem. The strongest evi
dence that this part of the valley is
foremost in fruit growing is that,
the largest fruit cannery on the
North Pacific coast is in Salem, ami
that two of the largest fruit evapo
rators are also here. In addition to
these several smaller establishments
do considerable fruit drying. Pomo

brate for its fruit, does not come Up

but tho former figures aro conserva

amount p'lld for the labor in picking
and drying tho same make prunes
worth fully $60,000 to the valley.

George Holier, In tho northern pait

The Dayton Herald has (he fol
lowing article on fiult:
"Mr, A. L, Aldt'inian, of (his
place, realized $1000 from thu silo of
this fruit in his orchard, uud was ut
no trouble or expense In gathering
the fruit, having sold It to Snyder
Bon, of this city, for the above men,-
P,Ue su.ui, tue letter gentlemen to
gather tho fruit. What business
will return a greater profit on the
labor and Investment made? Had
Mr. Alderman left his orchard go
uncarcd for, as there aro thousands
who do In Oregon (aud then say
that It does not pay to raise fruit) he
would hnvo realized but a small re
turn from the sale of fruit, and the
result would have been unsatisfac
tory. Somo will say, oh, yes, fruit rais
ing will pay well for awhile, per
haps, but the market will soon be
glutted, by everybody going into the
business. Everybody is not going
Into the business. It Is like all other
business, some are adapted to it and
others are not; those who are not
adapted to fruit raising will soon
giye it up. How has It been in Cal
ifornia? Thousands and thousands
of acres have been set to fruit, and
the result has been that thousands
of den and women (the field is open
to women as well as men) have
made fortunes in fruit ralslug. Yet
you hear men say that the business
is not profitable and will "play out"
iu that state. In the meantime
thousands of wide awake, energetic
fruit raisers are coining money there.

goods boxes, etc., with a jack-knife,
and Indulging in gossip about
pelgbbors, but properly using and

MORE FACTS OS THE PRUNE.
As we have stated before, this
country is especially ndapted for
Iruit raising, aud It has been derr.
onstiated by tht- demand for fruit
this season and the prices paid here
that it does pay to raise fruit, aud
pays well right here at home. Sny
der & Son, the well known Dayton
fruit dealers, have shipped immense
quuuitles of fruit this season. Jones
& Kramier, Dayton fruit dealers,
huve also shipped and dried a large
amount of fruit. We call attention
to the above facts to show that It
would be a great advantage aud
profitable to land-holders to divide
a part of their land into five, ten, or
twenty acre fruit farms. It would
result iu great good to the whole
country. We would ask the care
ful consideration and investigation
of all to the profits of the fruit in
dustry In Oregon. If you visit Sa
lem Btep into the fruit cannery aud
evaporator, where men of capital
hare invested money, and see the
scene of life aud activity presented
there, and Inquire as to the profits.
Also visit Clark's prune orchard and
inquire of the proprietor If his in
vestment has not been a paying one.

Tho productiou of prunes upon uu
extensive scale is destined to be

sooner our farmers give that branch
of agriculture their attention the
better it will be for them. Last
week the writer visited several
prune orchards in the vicinity of
Myrtle Creek, aud taking the state
ment of one proprietor as an average
gives the fallowing facts:

trees to the acre, gives 145,000
pounds, which sold in carloads

German and other large varieties
wereyleldlug more weight of dried
fruit to the acre but were sold for 8
cents per pound. Making full the
same net profit. Two years ago
these same trees now ten years old,
yielded nioro fruit because of more
moisture iu the land; but this year
the fruit is larger and contains more
sugar. Samples of these prunes,
some of them as largo ai goose eggs,
from tho orchard of II. A. Adams,

The following remarkable state
ments of the output of the 12,000
acres comprised iu the Vuca valley,
aregiveu by the Enterprise: Dur
ing the month of August there were
shipped to Eastern poluts 155 car
loads of green fruits, aud twenty
o,o carloads of dry fruit. To Ban
Frunolnoo and other poluts there
were shipped 155 carloads, making a
total for the mouth of 331 carloads,
aggregating In total weight 5,044,
225 pounds. This is considered a re
markable showing, owing to the
large number of trees it was claimed1
