AlthouEh not able to operate the
factory this season, the Lincoln coun-
ty blackberry crop will be taken c iro
of. according to Mr. Frederick. He
will operate a buying station in To-!

buyers In order to get the wgnest
price possible. He estimates 4 l-2c
per pound will be the price paid for
iroviaing nr. (Teancn i .uus-l.
ment of 200 tons of berries Is correct,
it would sjem that the wl'.d blackberry
crop of Lincoln county is one of its
most profitable industries. It re
quires no effort or expense on the
part of anyone to produce as the ber
ries grow wild and are simply nature's
Kift. A 4 l-2c per pound this "side
line" will bring Into this county a
atream of gold to the tune of $20 000. 1
Seems as though it Is well worth the '
time of every resident of Lincoln i
county to exert every effort to put .
the entire crop on the market,

All Who Intend Getting Aid From
. Uncle Sam, Now or Later,
Must Secure Certificates of
Injury at This Time.
With only a few days left for dis
abled World War veterans of this dis
trict to secure certificates of injury,
L. C. Jesseph, northwest district man
ager of the United States Veteran8'
Bureau urges those who may seek
government compensation at a later
date to make application for these cer
tificates before August 9, expiration
date of their issuance.
"The law governing activities of the
Veterans' Bureau states that claims
cannot be filled by disable veterans
after five years from service discharge
unless the claimant has a certificate
of Injury and these ' certlfilcates will
not be issued after August 9," said Mr.
Jesseph. "This simply means that a
veteran discharged from service for
instance on September 1, 1917 could
not file a claim for government com
pensation September 15 of this year
unless he had the necessary certi
ficate. We are anxlotn that every vet
eran in Washington, Oregon and Idaho
know of this important ruling."
M. Jesseph stated that the quickest
way of securing this certificate Is to
nake application for It by letter to

with Dr. Derfllnger of the Sta'.e Vet

of the work. Commenting on the re
sults of the T. B. testing, County
Agent Cootor states that during the
paBt three years' testing but few In
fected animals have been found, but
that In a number of Instances where
such animals have been found their
eradication has been a big safeguard
to the general public. Illustrating
this point, the first infected cow found
was ln a large herd on a dairy farm
where farm butter from unpasteurized
cream was being made, supplying
principally the retail Bupply of the
town of Waldport. Fortunately this
cow was In only the early stages of
the dread disease and not yet carry

of Rlnda Lad, who is a brother of

years at which time he would be able
to witness the then developed herds
