During the past week the Daily Record man took a few days off and visited the Lincoln Park districts, in which the industry is most prosper ous, and after interviewing many of the growers he is in a position to state that the indications for a fa vorable yield of the strawberry crop Is unusually bright this year. While it cannot be said that this y ar’s crop will be a bumper one, a conservative estimate, based on the opinions of various ranchmen and personal observations, places the crop at about tbree-rourtbs of the best av erage yield. Many of tbe growers state that they expect the yield will be as good as in several of the former years. The main problem confronting the growers at the present time is the discovery of a variety particularly suitable to this locality as regards soil and climatic conditions. At pres ent the Bederwood is cultivated most extensively, but a number of the ranchmen are experimenting contin ually with new plants and It seems only a question of time before this variety Is supplanted by a new one. While the Bederwood has many good qualities—lt Is very prolific and the fruit is of excellent quality and flavor—lt is generally considered a poor shipper and some growers do not furor it strongly because of a tendency to ripen on one side only. One point being urged iu its favor by some Is that it has a high stand of foliage which means clean berries, as they do not lie in the mud, which fact Is to be considered by irriga tion farmers. A number of growers are experi menting with the later varieties, with the view of saving the fruit from the late frost. Below we give a list of a number of growers with a conservative es timate of the yield they expect. The Ml see* Mabel and Lilian Cuth bert Mis# Grace Gilen and Miss Ida Gebhardt had a picnic supper among the hills Saturday evening Mr. C M C hope oC 814 Sherman avenue has a new bed of shoot half an acre and expects in the neigh borhood of 108 crates. Mr. George Salle, on Shermaa ave nue. has a fine looking bed of Be derwood* which will cover about two solid seres. He puts hla estimate at 800 crates, but on account of the late froots he would probably had from one to two hundred crates more. Dennis Sullivan of Grand avenne is another extensive grower who take# a very optimistic view of this year's crop. Mr. Sullivan has about one and one-half acres of strawberries this year, from which he received 500 crate* last year and will probably have about the same yield this year Mrs. O'Brien of Grand avenue has one acre of the Bederwood variety from which she estimates 300 crates this season. i • i I E. R. Craver of Grand avenue has three-fourths of an acre of the Beder-, wood and Klondike varieties which he estimates from 75 to 100 crates Frank Arnold, on Grand avenue, 1 has a two-year-old bed of two acre* from which he expects 500 crates. J. P. Farmer has a one and one half acre patch of new and old bed? from which be estimates 300 to 500 crates. Dr. Allen Bell ha* a two-acre patch, from which he will receive a bouncing yield. Isaac William* at the far end of the park, ha* one acre set out In straw berries from which he expect* to get from 150 to 200 crates. Mr. Tony I .arson, whose ranch of ten acres on the corner of Cedar and Ixx'ust streets, hn* on# acre in Straw berries—Captain Jack Warfield. Olen mary and Bederwood being the var ieties cultivated from which he ex pects about 200 crates. We cannot help but congratulate Mr. Larson on the fruitful appearance of whole ranch, which without the use of smudge pots his fruit crop promises to rival with the best. trimming trees. etc. In all thirty grave* were found, twenty-four of which were fixed up according to civilised Ideas. The men were taken out in auto mobiles. D. E. Gibson A. E. Shar roan and W. E. Galley very kindly furnishing thr'r cars for the use of the party. T te outward trip wae made at 9 o’clock In the morning and the return Journey at 5 o’clock in the afternoon. The proposed swinging bridge across the channel of Grope creek at Temple canon will he erected nest week. WEEKLY A. E. Hubbell of Grand avenue has a one and a half acre bed of Be derwood variety of which part is new and part old He estimates his crop this year at about 300 crates. Mr. J. A. Lewi*, on Popular ave nue has one acre of the Bederwood variety tcom which he expects about 176 to 2*o crates. Altogether the reports are very en couraging and the strawberry yield this year looks very promising. From Wednesday's Daily. Miss Eleanor Kiskaddon returned from her trip to Denver Friday.
