J. A. N., Indian Run, writes under date July 10th :
" Fruit prospects. Apples light crop here; pears and peaches medium crop; grapes much injured by insects; cherries and strawberries fine crop - of the latter on our grounds we have several acres, and can raise more plants of one hundred Cresent Seedlings, than we can of five hundred Wilson's Albany. Raspberries, Pride of the Hudson; failure here. New Rochelle do well if the fruit don't prove too soft for shipping. Near the oil regions here fruit finds a ready demand".
