OREGON WHEAT CROP.

History.
Foktlani», Ore.. July 94.—Advices
from every wheat-growing county in
Oregon show that the wheat crop will
be the largest in the history of the
state. Eastern Oregon, it is estimated,
will produce approximately 11,500,000
bushels, while the western Oregon crop
will arnaunt to ubout 0,600.000, making
a total of 18.000.000 bushels for the
state. Harvesting has commenced in
almost every section of the »tale, and
wheat appears of excellent quality.
