PLACE FOR THE FRUIT
Big Kvaporator Will Soon He
Perishable Orchard and Garden
Products Will Be Handled
. ai Colfax.
I ollax is to have a large fruit and
vegetable evaporating and drying plant
which will furnish a safe and handy mar
ket for the various orchard and garden
products of the Paloase country, much
of which now goes to waste because it
will not bear shipment in its. green state
Bnlin Bros., proprietors of the Colfax
box factory, are to establish the house
mihl have it in operation in time to care
for the apple crop of the country, and
pomibly for the prunes and other 'earlier
fruits. Tbe capacity of this new indus
try is to be about ten tons of green fruit
or vegetables a day.
It will give to ti.e small orchardist a
market and to the larger grower a safe
place to put at least that part of their
orchard and garden products which
would stand evaporation, but not shin
lhe big evaporator will be installed
on the grounds adjoining the Hulin
barn on south Main street. \|| fruits
and vegetables for which a market in
their evaporated or dedicated condition
pan be found will be handled.
Much care, investigation and expense
has been used by the firm to perfect the
details of this new and important indus
try. Henry Hulin has traveled inces
santly during the past two months
through the fruit districts of Oregon,
Washington and Idaho. His search was
for the best methods and the best men
to handle a business of this kind.
He found at Salem, Oregon, an evap
orator which he has concluded to install.
It is the Stevens, successfully used there,
and thr inventor and builder will install
it and put it in successful operation.
Kaoiiac farmers are rejoicing in the
prospect of a good wheat crop and
higher prices. A gentleman, who has
just returned from the east, by way of
the Great Northern, says that the crop
of Minnesota and North Dakota is
ruined. Even in the famous Red River
valley wheat is heading out so short
that it can scarcely be cut with a mow
ing machine. There will not be enough
for feed and seed. He reports, also, that
the wheat crop in Ohio will not average
more than live bushels to the acre.
Kansas and Missouri however, have
promise of a better crop. Wheat will
certainly go higher.
Summer fallow is getting very hard to

they were ready for more today. The

Bagged to «5e and then, all in a few
minutes, broke down to 81Y\. At 85e
stop loss orders in long numbers were
re tcbed for the first time since the ad
vance began, and there was such effort
to sell that between 87c and the bottom
there was scarcely a check to the decline.

street interests, caught the breaking

where the wheat market closed.
Took a Drop.
» bicago, Juno 2(j — The wheat market
might be likened to a 'Second sober
thought." It waH active but not wild,
and traders in a more leisurely manner
re-adjasted to a degree the prices, which
broke loose and went soaring last week.
There wan no change in the northwest
ern flection. The Dakotas and Minne
sota renewed their pitiful cries of distress
over the ruin of their crops, hut gener
nlly the cries fell upon deaf ears. On
the other hand the Liverpool close was
■i l-, under yesterday and it was declared
that the southwest would rai^e 100,000,
--001) bushels more than last year, an
amount: nearly sufficient to make up for
the shortage occasioned by the north
west failure. Local longs pressed heavily
on the market at the opening, which was
at x:\\ to 83% for July. The break
stirred the northwest and selling orders
from that section poured in early, send
ing July down to 82% c within an hour of
the opening. Some of the important
longs were not sellers, but they were a
small minority, for the crowd with big
profits in view was large. Later in the
day July recovered to B.i T,e on a little
[ess pressure from longs for the moment.
The bulge was lost in short order and
probably the decline was only ended by
the closing of the session. The close
wus at the bottom, July 4c under yester
day at 82c.
Jumped l~i> Again.
Chicago, June '27.— The liquidation
which set in Monday had not quite Bpent
itself last night and some fag ends of it
tumbled into tbe wheat pit at the begin
ning of business today. Thin, with some
declines in Liverpool cables, caused un
easiness early. .Inly opened unchanged
at \c up at 82<582%c and quickly sold
off to 81^?. At this point the liquida
tion took the form of scattered selling.
The demand was excellent from the
northwest and the seaboard and Hold
out bulls were also active in replenish
ing their stocks. The remainder of the
session consequently was strong. Com
pared with recent tensions, trade was
quiet, the rally was gradual and the best
price was not reached until afternoon,
when July perched at N4V- The bulge
brought out profit-seeking stuff and a
dip to 83% c followed, but the market
quickly recovered to B."J::,c and flowed
firm, July 1 •"•,<: over yesterday at B'6%c.
Liverpool, lollowing her opening weak
ness, turned strong. There was light
rain in the northwest, but the opinion iB
general that the northwest crop is prac
tically beyond hope.
Thursday—Wheat closed in Chicago at
site. The local price is 43c iv warehouse
and 46c on board.
