are of the opinion no aerioua Injury has
been done to fruit by tha frosts of this
weak. The frost has been light and, in
fact not noticeable eioept in low places.
It Is said little of the fruit Is located in
places where tha frost was observed and
there is considerable doubt whether it
was heavy enough even here to do serious
damage. U rapes, probably, are In a state
which renders them more llabla to Injury
than other fruits, but as a rule tha vines
ara on hillsides where the frost did not
reach. o.Vthlng haa bajipened, Mr. Mar
