GOVERNMENT CROP REPORT.
Official Bulletin for Oregon Week
Ending Juno 27.
Heavy rain fell In Lane, Douglas,
Josephine aud Jackson counties on the
22d, which ranged from .25 td 1.40
lucbes. The frosts on the 18th and 19th
were general In the southern counties
aud are the latest on record.
The wheat crop will be an average
one, possibly moro. The growth indi
cated 30 to 40 bushels to the acre while
at the present time from 25 to 30 bush
els per acre is indicated. Fall wheat is
out of possible danger, Its oonditlon
would be improved by warmer weather
and sunshine. Spring grain is from 4
to 10 Inches high and is the most
seriously aflectod by the laok of sun
shine. The cool weather retards
growth. Clover is being cut for hay,
it is very heavy; timothy is not so heavy
Corn is Hot doing well, owing to the
cool nights and lack of warmth during
the day. Strawberries are. yet very
plentiful. Cherries are ripening slowly,
tbey will be a short crop. Potatoes are
growing well and a large yield Is in
dicated. Hops have good upward
growth, hut latter.il growth is slow,
due to the cool, cloudy weather, more
than to preventative action. . The hop
Hue are not present to uo alarm lug ex
tent; in some yards spraying has com
menced. Prunes and plums oontinue
to be reported as belli 4 a large crop, the
same for berries, while peaches,' apples
and pears will not be an average crop,
the increase in bearing acreage will,
however, materially Increase the total
produot. Haying will be general by
the close of the week. Stock is in ex
cellent condition. Oats, barley, rye,
buckwheat, onions, and garden truck
promise good yields; but would be im
proved by sunshine.
