' "Hi- F3T OF THE SEASON
Ripe Berries Being Exhibited on Oar
Streets Today—lndications Are
Good for Shipping .Nut Week.
Several ripe strawberries have
been on exhibition in town todav,
picked from various patches in the
neighborhood of town and the in-'
dicatio::s are good for lots of ripe j
ones between the first and fifth of
May. In fact there is 110 longer
any doubt as to the ability of our j
growers to go onto our market with
good berries about that time. Tom j
McCain says he will have the fiist
short cake of the season on Sunday
i next and several other gentlemen
j are looking forward to the same
I kind and-so forth for their Sunday J
' dinner. Advices received from I
j other berry raising districts say j
j they will not be ready for the mar- 1
| ket before the tenth. Places as 1
close as Strawberry Island are at
j least a week later than the Kenne
wick district. This will insure our j
growers the very highest price for
their product, and those who are ill j
a postiou to know are talking $8 a
crate for all berries that reach the
tnaiket ahead of other northern 1
grown berries. The market has,
been flooded with the southern
grown article forabout a month,
and the price has gone down to as i
low as ten cents a box retail, and -
wholesalers have disposed of them '■
at as low as $1.50 a box. This, |
however, does not affect the price I
of the Kennewick or Hood River
berries, as last year berries from ;
these districts sold for 30 cents a ,
box alongside of California beTries
that were going begging at 10
cents. This year we will get the
cream of the strawberry market j
and hold it for over a week, and j
we will not be surprised if the $8 j
| men realize thair predictions.
Buy one now and clear up a hat
full of money or forever after hold ]
your peace. Only a few days left i
