TREE FRUIT MAY BE
HURT BY THE FROST
Crop of Cherries, Peaches, Plums,
Pears and Apples Likely to
Be Cut Down.
Fruit growers in this section incline
to the belief that the severe frosts of
the last two nights have seriously dam
aged -the cherry buds and may result
in cutting down the yield of other tree
fruit, 6uch as apples, peaches, pears
and plums. It ia believed, however,
that the loss will not prove total with
any variety. The freeze last night was
not quite so serious as that of the
night before, but probably did more
damagp, owing to the fact that the
! ground was colder. Little harm seems
to have been done in the gardens, to
matoes that had been set out being
about the only vegetable to suffer.
