before making their awards.
"The great purpose of this compaign
is to educate the public up to the use
of loganberry juice as a beverage,"
said Mr. Waggoner. "It becomes all
the more important because greater
quantities of non-alcoholic beverages
will be in demand after next January 1.

draw attention to the fact that a great
industry will be added to the State of
Oregon by interesting local capital in
the loganberry juice. At this time
the Juice is commercially manufactured
in only three places as far as I am
informed. The largest of these is at
Salem, and a similar plant is running
in Portland, while the third is that of

O? course, we all knew exactly how
he did it, that Houdini King of Mystery
person at the Orpheum, but somehow
or other our theories don't hold water.
The act holds water, however, in fact
there's the rub.
Does he go in It or doesn't he and
if he does why isn't he drowned dead

first, for long minutes, and if he isn t
in the water why is the tank full of it
when he emerges, smiling and pert?
Of course we all know how he did it.

Houdini Is truly at the top of the list
of trurtk mysteries, for he lets himself
be locked and tied and barricaded in a
trunk not taking up much more space
than his own body, and filled to its
brim with nice Bull Run water.
We see the water hosed in, we see
Houdini with his feet fastened through
a stock-like brace, we see him lowered
nto the tank and a million bolts and
bars put on the closed trunk.
A curtain is drawn while an attend
ant counts the minutes on a stop
watch. A whisking aside of the cur
tain, and presto, there is Houdini
hopping briskly to the footlights with
a see-I-fooled- em-again look.
He has another trick, too, in which
he swallows two separate packages of
needles, and several yards of sewing
thread, and then while we are wonder
ing if he'll have a stitch in his side he
calmly spits or expectorates, anyway
he draws out the thread with the ten
thousand needles strung along it.
