FIFTY THOUSAND A MONTH FOR ADVERTISING
Otis E Gli&den, general manager of the company which owns
Jiffy-Jell, has jbst written a letter to H. S. Oile, president of tho
Pheasant Northwest Products Co., in which he says, in part:
"I recall with pleasure my visit to Salem last July and the
courteous attention shown me while there, by yourself and associates.
"You will remember that I visited you for the purpose of leatn-
ling,, first hand, just how the loganberry is grown and handled.
1 ; "As a result of my investigations I became firmly convinced of
ithe soundness of the industry and the possibilities for greater de
velopment and popularity of the juice as a flavoring agent.
- "There is no hesitancy in saying to you frankly that you tje-
' serve great eredit for your persistency and faith in the loganberry.
... . No one who has not been "through the mill" can realize in
the slightest degree what a tremendous undertaking it is to even
introduce to' the distributing trade
r.; -"When I say to you that we are now spending about $50,000
5 monthly in advertising Jiffy-Jell, and that our new series of ads
"just started feature loganberry flavor more thah any of the others,
I believe you will be convinced of my sincerity so far as confidence
in the loeanberry is concerned.
" You will note, as ourt spring
that in many of our ads .we mention the fact that the wonderful
loganberry grows only in Oregon.

Chees is all right, of course, and
it would probably be a good idea for
all of us to eat more of it instead
of so much meat. Thousands of peo
ple have come to respect cheese since
learning that it cured John D. Rock
efeller's stomach trouble. However,
It may be well remembered that a
very little of even the best cheese
goes a long way and that It should
be partaken of sparingly. Also It
is good to bear in mind the old say
ing the "cheese Is gold In the morn
ing, silver at noon and lead at
night'.' There are all sorts of cheese

them all under the one definition

asked to define the word cheese, re
plied. "Cheese Is petrified milk that
smells bad to a feller's nose when he
eats it" meaning, no doubt, tlw
cheese and not the nose. That defi
nition applies only to such brands
as schlosskase and limburger.

This is not time to talk peace. '
This is the time to talk war, to
talk fight, the time when the nation,
like the individual community, must
determine to suppress the criminal
rather than yield to his crimes.
This is the time when the nation
on bended knees may well ask Al
mighty God to strengthen its power
to fight in order that it may do the
vork to which He has called us as
clearly as He ever called any man
or any nation to any great task since
the beginning of time.
Our stipreme duty is to fight.
The supreme business of this na
tion is to win the war, and never
count that it has been won until
there is a complete, unconditional
surrender by Germany, and until
Germany's murderers from the high
est on the throne have paid the full

Careless Use of Soap
Spoils the Hair
Soap should be used very care
fully, if you want to keep your hair
looking its best. Most soaps and
prepared shampoos contain too much
alkali. This dries the scalp, makes
the hair brittle, and ruins it.
The best thing for steady use is
just ordinary mulsified cocoanut oil
(which is pure and greaseless), and
is better than the most expensive
soap or anything else you can use.
One or two teaspoonfuls will
cleanse the hair and scalp thorough
ly. Simply moisten the hair with
water and rub it In. It makes an
abundance of rich. , creamy lather,
which rinses1 out easily, removing
evej-y particle of dust, dirt, dandruff
and eacessive oil. The hair dries
quickly and evenly, and it leaves the
scalp soft, and the hair fine and
silky, "bright, lustrous, fluffy and
easy to manage. '
You can get mulsified cocoanut
oil at any pharmacy. It's very cheap,
and a Jew ounces will supply every
member of the family for months.

plaintiff in error, against the state
of Oregon. Wlbur was convicted to
Clackamas county on a charge cf

claim that the state supreme court
erred in deciding that Section S3,
Chapter 14 Laws of 1915, known ai
the prohibition act, is not repugnant
to! the constitutions of the United
States. That section provides that
an indictment for violation of tbe
