On the colored boy. Then Bing. and a smoky right arin shot out and in less time "than it hikes lightning to travel the legnth of n spade handle, 11s O. Henry once remark ed, a right h.iok landed on Mascott 's jaw. Mascott hit the floor and stretch ed out as straight as if he were on a slab nt the morgue but he was up in an instant and came boring 141 for more. Hilly was knocked out on his feet n ml only his rare fighting instinct kept him from losing the decision right there. He was groggy and all but out and kept falling toward Johnson. The colored lad swung rights 11 ml lefts but Hill v covered and as each blow lauded it nnl'v straightened him up nud if the colored boy had only let him fall't'orward Billy would probably have stayed down for the count. Hobby Evans jumped to the side of the ring and threw water like a sport ive elephant as soon us Billv regained lis feet after the knockdown and the water livened his charge up until the gong nr the .mm ot the round enabl 1 Mascott to wobble to his corner. Mas- ott came back strong in the sixth ami last round and evened matters up by outboxing Johnson and the referee call ed it n draw. 1 Summer was given a decision over Romeo Hagcu in n six round bat tle. Hngen and Sommers mef once in Salem where Sommers also gained Hie decision. The referee refused to break the clinches in the early part of this contest and Sommers' superior clever ness in boxing did not show up to a good advantage. Soninier.s clearly earned the decision.

Fruit Prospects Brighter In Oregon This Year Oregon 'Agricultural Tollege, Co'rval lis, May 7. Although there is a lot of eomflaint about 110 money in .ip ples there is a good profit in supplyiug the local marKet at $1.00 a box' says Professor C. I. I,cwis in discussing the apple situation in Ores0"! and the pi ices were even better than that last' season, 89 pointed out by Professor Lewis as follows: "Last season one largo concern sold its entire output of about -tn.tMK) boxe- iat an average of nearly ..0n a box f. 0. b. Hood Kiver t.iud grade brought $1.03." - The greatest trouble was p6or grade stuff. Through lack of striving and proper cultural methods a great deal of low quality material was Town, This necessarily urought low prices, while better grades were shipped in from other sections in large quantities and retailed at $1.50 to $2.0U a box. Con- Isuuiptiou would have been much great er. Professor .Lewis points out, ir tnero had been .1 good supply of local apples obtainable at $1.01) a box, "fruit grow ers should spray more. Scab can be controlled by intelligent spraying and thinning. "The market this season for logan berries." savs Professor Lewis. is bound to be good. The price will prob ablv be three cents for berries for commercial purposes. Loganberry juice has "ained great f-ivor and two or three million dollars worth will be made this season if the berries are ob tainable. Manufacturers fear that they will be unable to buy enough ber ries and some are planning to grow large acreages themselves. In one city of Oregon $-150,000 is being spent for manufacturing equipment.

LATE HOP NOTES A trip through the Independence sec tiou makes it clear that the growing season for hops . has scarcely begun. Many yards show very little Rreen as yet though the yards have all been strung. Some, however, have the vines well up toward the wires, though these yards arc not numerous. The high Irellised yards do not, of course, show vine growth as quickly as the low- trel lessed of the Aurora section do. The rich lowland yards of Independence dis play a more rapid growth than ours when growth once begins. There is considerable complaint in the Indepen dence country concerning missing hills. There is also repo-tcd to be consider- ..l.ln rllutiifiefnitinit nitiimfT Mm nniallet 1 . Tn.l,.,,n,1i,.u who V.e- , f , ' , C RKS0.-.kiwn ov the fail- lmiL'cd ore of the association to dispose of their hops, much of the 7,000 bales yet nn hand belonging to the small growers there. Rome are speculating what the result will lie if these hops sell below tho contract price. In that case they are wondering if those growers who have already been paid will have to refund any part of the money received TTon ciowers q lite cent rally .n- port the vines held back by the un favorable weather of the month past. While the outlook is fair for he pro duction of an average crop, there no doubt that ' some local yards are in a verr backward condition, and unless the May and June growth unusual, some yards will produce a very light crop. The Waterville New York) Hop Reporter savs: "The constant de mand at present is slowly cleaning nn the few remaining lots, although there is vet some difference of opin ion between irrowej and buyer in re gnrd to price. The roots seems to have a very good start and despite th. losses of the past season the growers are anticipating a good crop this fall. ' There is no demand for hop roots and in several cases yards are being plowed up nn that account. Tnstend of placing nn embargo on hops, the English government have entered into nn agreement, with British brewers' society by which it ; IH agreed to - reduce the output Of beer, about 30 per cent. This will re duce the importations of hops almost one-third. If this report from Lon don is true, the export demand for hops will not cut so great a figure this season as in the past, and a sharp reduction in production seems to be. the only remedy available to the grow er to prevent ruinous prices for his crop.
