Pierce, however, has received .petition after petition from Ok-' mulgee cojunty* Sequoyah cpun:* ty and Haskell" county urging him to run and still declines to enter the race. He wants, he says, to'be sure that the people want him before he offers himself. '-; ��- This is considered a wise move by observers. If Pierce gets into the race, he will go in to win and it would be foolhardy not to test the ground thoroughly before making the leap.

II Spring Crop OMoak Reported Excellent By M. R. McSpadden Fruit growers over the couitr apparently feel that the con? dition of fruits have not been materially injured by the recent freeze. Poaches have undoubtr edly been damaged to quite an extent and, our peach production^ will be low compared to that of last year. This probably is not due to the freeze but due to a lack of set on the trees. Some peach growers however, 'feel that their production will be air most as large as last year. Apple growers are of the opinion that, the late freeze will not affect the apple production. Some, varieties of apples did not set fruit buds at all while others put out a good set. Some orchards will undoubtedly have a high yield of Jonathans while others will have none at all. The Black Twig will probably be as large as last year. Not much set has been noticed on the Black Ben. While the strawberries were Wi* doubfedly damaged to quite an extent by the recent freeze, most growers are of the opinion that this will hot materially affect the formal strawberry production. Some growers feel that thift will have a increase, the quality of th4 fruit and the price as well.
