are the healthier for the change. The range of dishes in
which walnuts are used is as wide as that in which wheat
flour is employed. It was well named when called "The food
of the Gods," the King of nuts. The analysis of the walnut
is: Water, 2.8; proteids, 16.7; fat, G4.4; carbohyd rates, 14.8;
ash, 1.3. It is a real food.

it will mean vast added wealth to this county. Mr. Van Trump
says that, including the worthless English seedlings and Am
erican blacks, there are over 10,000 walnut treets in Marion
county that should be grafted to improve varieties at the
earliest possible date. Some of these black walnut trees re
ferred to by Mr. Van Trump are very large. By grafting,
these can be made over into trees that will yield crops of nuts
that will pay very high interest on the investment; into trees
that will be worth as much as three thousand dollars each.
Such a resource should not be wasted one day longer than

This week the Salem slogan subject is walnuts.- Perhaps
a generalization of the whole walnut industry could scarcely
be better outlined than bv printing liberal extracts from the
leading editorial article of the Salem Slogan issue of The
Statesman of November 13, 1919, as follows:
The walnut is a very old tree. It is older than the liills. It
' was before thev were. The testimony from the glacial drift
" ' in Ohio. Indiana and Illinois shows that forests containing
the walnut grew throughout that vast section and were buried
durintr the Ace of Ice. So. throughout the great Mississippi
-1 Valley it grew thousands of years before the pyramids rose
on the banks of the Nile, or the mythical deity for whom it
iwas naraed-oveT-Jupiter-r-rhad.iis origin in the fables of
men. K -
'. Walnut trees grew in Palestine when Solomon was King.
r Tr wa known to the Romans as the royal nut and Jove3
, nut hence its scientific name: Juglans; from Joyis glan
' the nut of Jove or Jupiter. : ! '
. - The Ansrlo-Saxon derivative signified -"foreign nut;' com
; ing from the continent. The supply coming to Amerkja
through England, we get the term, English walnut.
.. The walnut tree attains great age. Only; its heart wojd
rows old. The life line is yearly renewed in every tree, and
it is just as young in the tree that has withstood the storms
of centuries as in the sapling of a single year. The living
tree is always young.
. In France (Gaul it was called Gaul nut and possibly the
name walnut is an English corruption.
In days of old in Germany there was a custom that it
would be well for us to heed. No young farmer could marry
until he had grown a stated number of walnut trees. Think
of the benefit such a custom would eventually yield.
. A walnut tree estimated to be a thousand years old in the
Crimea near BalaWava bears annually from eight thousand
to a hundred thousand nuts ; a ton- or more. Italians in Amer
ica remember trees in their native villages in their home
land six hundred years or more old, bearing bumper annual
crops. Senator Louis Lachmund, in his contribution in this
issue of The Statesman, tells of a walnut tree 600 years old
' in the Vatican at Rome. An English walnut tree on the Mor
ris Estate on Manhattan Island bore choice nuts for more
than a century. George Washington hade his headquarters
jat the Morris mansion after his escape from the British on
Long Island and doubtless ate the nuts of that tree; for it
bore two cart loads annually. It stood till 18f5; giving way
to the encroaching building operations of the1 great metrop
olis. In California one large walnut tree has been sold for three
thousand dollars.' Two noted trees in that state have each
home as high as seven hundred pounds of nuts in a single
i 3 ear. The average yield for ten years from one large tree
, grafted fifteen years before has been 394 pounds. From the
above, the reader may form some estimate of the intrinsic
value of a large walnut orchard properly put out and cared
for -in the coming years. It will commence bearing the sixth
year and increase rapidly thereafter. Comfort, shade, beauty
and value are created; and while walking beneath the ever
spreading branches the spirit drinks from the fount of per
ennial youth. The consumption of walnuts is increasing in
this country and all over the world. In millions of homes nuts
