: i THE EASTER OYSTERS. Mr. Geo. King, of Oysterville, forwards us a letter from Professor Washburn concerning the Eastern oysters transplanted in Yaquina bay. The matter is an important one to this bay, and we give it in full. It is as follows: "Eugene, Or., May 14, 1897. To the Oystermen of Yaquiiia Bay: Gentlemen: Will you permit me to impress upon you a few points of importance? 1st. I trust that every man on the Bay is interested in the success of this oyster experiment, and that each man realizes it means much in the future if it succeeds. 2nd. I hope that this interest is so great that each man will look upon the venture as his own, mean ing, if we succeed, an additional source of income for his family and that 3rd. Each man will feel so deeply concerned that he will guard the deposit made by the general government and feel a personal interest in its proper protection and care. 4th.

The Fruit Crop of the State. The Oregon crop and weather bulletin has the following summary of the reports gathered from its various correspondents concerning the fruit prospects of this season: "The great fruit crop, indicated by the profusion of blossom, will not this year be realized. The fruit is dropping from the trees. The petite prune is almost gone. The Italian and Silver prunes now prom ise to be about a one-half crop; other varieties a very fair crop. Bartlett pears and apples will make a fair crop, unless more drop; and cherries will be a poor crop. Some sections report poor fruit prospects, as outlined above, while other sec tions report good fruit prospects. The fruit will be less in the nor thern half of the Willamette valley than elsewhere. The cause of the change in fruit prnsjwt8 is nccribed by some as being due to. the No vember freeze before the sap had retreated; others ascribe it to the frosts the latter part of April; while others are of the opinion that it is ...
