Prult Outlook Not .-mi (iood,
Washington, July 17. The fruit crop re
port of the agricultural department for
July shows a material decline In condition.
The report Is summarized ns follows: Tho
condition of apples has been materially
lowered since the report of June. Losses
have been especially marked In Important
states having already low conditions, viz.,
the New England states. New York, Penn
sylvania, .Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota.
Li the Piedmont region the outlook is
de'iiiedly more favorable. In Mbsourl and
. ontlguotis states the decline has been
light, not above 3 per cent In any case,
but the conditions are not quite ns high
us in the Piedmont orchards. On the P.i-
ciilc coast conditions fell about 11 per cent,
but the prospects theie are still good.
Frost at time of bloom, subsequent
drouths and heavy droppings are the main
causes of the Impaired prospects.
The peach crop returns are also unfavor
able, (leorglu and Connecticut ulotie of
the leading commercial states have now a
high peieentage, the former having moved
up to 106, a gain of one point, the latter
declining to i) from 91. New Jersey has
lost 12 points and now stands at 73; Dela
ware, 13, standing at 70. Maryland has
advanced from 63. to 66. The condition of
Virginia, 69, Is lower than in June by 13
points. Michigan has prospect of less than
half 11 crop, while Ohio Is 22, lowest of all.
In California the condition tlguro declined
from ss. on June 1, to 77. on July 1.
Orapes: Fro.ts have done much dam
age to this .-rot., espe. lallj in tho more
Northern belt and Central iVest.
