Tbero are, no doubt, localities, as tbero are overv vear. where the crop is light, but in tbo best prune district the crop is amply large to satisfy the growers. Throughout tbo Liberty-Rosedale sec tion statements from nearly every grower show that the crop Is ample. In many orchards there is bat little over half or two-thirda that might be termed a "bumper" crop, and the srowera are satisfied! with this state of affairs. It makes lino, large fruit, costs less to harvest and cure, and leaves the orchard la much better con dition. On the whole, the growers will make u mueh net profit from a crop of this slzo and character as they would from the heaviest poselblo crop, Furthermore, this kind of a crop gives tho Oregon pruno its reputation abroad for being tho finest, largest and best flavored fruit 'of its kind in tho world. In tho Red Hills many pruno trees aro broken down with surplus fruit, which fact speaks for itself. All growers aro making nmplo arrange ments for picking nnd drying, Tho trees look healthy, nnd tho fruit is beginning ttf how perccptiblo color. Verily, the prune grower 11ns a good prospect, nnd llttlo or no occasion to complain. A Bclatod Prayor.
