Cheers for i-adv i:iit-. Possibly the., lady riders with, tin lr white waists, black skirts and pi'unc Ing chargers were the recipients of the greatest share of the applause, but It Is doubtful. The decorated au tomobiles were all beiiutlful, and the Judges will have their hands full when It comes to making the awards. The other features of the parade were also successfully carried out. Following the completion of the parade, that portion of (he crowd that so desired repaired to the fair pavilion to hear the oration by Judge Llone B, Webster of Portland, and the other numbers on the program.

There seems to be a great uncertainty as to how the market will open, but the growers, especially, are very optimistic and most of them In this county declare they will hold their wheat for onfc dollar per bushel. Some say they will not even contract In advance for that figure. So far as can be ascer tained not a bushel of wheat has been contracted ff.r In this vicinity at any price.

Even in the Pilot Hock country where it was thought that the farm ers had jut as well plow up their stand, a fairly good yield of wheat will be harvested, while the barley crop, now being threshed, Is much heavier and Of better qualify than ia-t year. The same is true in the light land s ctiona of the west end of the county where harvesting will be started next week and where yields of from 5 to 25 bushels per acre are expected. Because of the lack or moisture this spiinR the straw, as a general thing, la shorter than usual, but on . very stalk there is a head and every head IS filled.

Not So Much Smut. Smut. Which prevailed to such a great extent last year is not nearly so bad this year though in spots it will cut down the yield materially. There are also fewer weeds this year than common. The great difficulty which the har vesters will prppably have to con tend with is the uneaveaeas of the Stand. This is the more noticeable here because it is an unusual con dition for this county. Universal surprise and astonish- mem is expressed however at the manner in which the wheat has de--H.oports ?.. veloped during the past few weeks without any moisture whatever. It is attributed altogether to the cool weather which has prevailed through out eastern Oregon, Coming at the critical time It did. the grains of wheat were enabled to develop to the fullest extent, absorbing all the strength of the entire plant, thus accounting for good milk market in the short vrnwHi nf str-.. the farm- Financial Rntnrn. in,. .
