THE GREAT PIE BERRY OF COMMERCE
LOOMS BIO HERE
Salem is the center of the great and
Growing; it has increased 400 per cent in Oregon in a year,
and Marion county has over half the acreage of this state, and
Polk is second, Yamhill third, and Linn fourth
So the Salem district has nearly all the Evergreen black
berries in Oregon. " !
This is a distinetionat means more than mere words of
It means wealth for our farmers and growth for our factories
and our city ' . -
The demand has become great, and the supply promises to
'tax the resources- of man, woman and child power in picking
the Evergreen blackberries of the Salem district in the future
perhaps even during the next harvest season.
The canneries ean take a great tonnage of these berries, and
the cold pack or barrel trade can use train loads of them; and
in both forms they are wanted in the centers of population to
satisfy the great American appetite for pie
. And o there looms the prospect of pie plutocrats pandering
to the plebeian palate of the four million, to say nothing of , the
natrician preference of the four hundred.
The United States Department of Agriculture, in Farmers'
Bulletin 643, has the following:
"EVERGREEN (Black Diamond. Star, Wonder, Ewing
Wonder, Everbearing, Atlantic Dewberry) Origin unknown.
but grown m Europe since 1 WW. liemes large, iirm, sweet,
quality very good, seeds large. Season late to very late and
iong. Bush vigorous, tender, productive, deep rooted and
drought resistant ; eanes semitrailing, perennial in some sections,
but they should always be trained as though they were biennial
, like other varieties; root at tips. One of the best varieties in
Oregon and Washington, but not generally adaptedlo the
States east of the Roeky Mountains, because the fruit is small
rnd worthless except in New Jersey, where it is grown consid
erably with Ruccess. Planting distances, 16 to 24 by 8 feet in
Oregon and Washington, according to conditions. This variety
.is found growing wild in Oregon and Washington."
There you have it
The Evergreen blackberry is an Oregon and Washington
berry ; and this means that it is a western Oregon and W ashing
ton berry ' - J
And the Salem district having attained the premiership will
keep it and it will go in ever increasing volume in cans and
barrels fo'the great pie centers, and in jams and jellies to an
narts of the world. i
The great future of the Evergreen blackberry lies in its
great production . to the acre and its economy of cultivation,
enabling growers and dealers and factories to put it onto the
markets at reasonable prices.
But some j'ears, it may be a bonanza crop.
Knight Pearcy last year told of the production of eight tons
to the acre of Evergreen blackberries and they sold last year
at 8 cents a pound, which would make $1280 ah acre, with f20
an acre for the picking, leaving net $960 an acre.
That is surely a bonanza crop.
And there have been bonanza profits the past few years in
gathering and selling the berries from the vines growing wild.
The big future, however, is for the cultivated crop, and it is
evident that all small fruit growers of this section will find it
profitable to use Evergreen blackberries as a link in the chain
of diversified agriculture.

Camp Dodge To Be Turned

Editor Statesman: -
A mother in the highest and
fullest meaning of the word is the
divine essence of the home with
out whose guiding hand home is
really not home, but simply a
place to eat and sleep and seek
shelter from the elements. It is
to the mother the children instinc
uveijncome ior comiort. sympa
thy,' understanding and advice,
and so it is also to mother the
world must look for the men and
women of the future.
It is not only her mission to
bear but her duty and God-given
privilege to rear them and so min
ister to their needs of spirit, mind
and body that they may take their
place in life, filled with higher
ideals, nobler purposes, and the
mental and moral strength to car
ry them out.
Every thinking person will ad
mit that home life and mother in
fluence are by far the most im
portant factors in the making or
spoiling of child character, in the
end affecting the character of the
world at large.
It is therefore but just to the
child of today, who will be the
father or mother of tomorrow
that no stone be unturned that
the children of today shall not be
held back by physical or moral
unfitness. Children are not al
ways wrong doers because of natu
ral depravity. Investigation may
show unwholesome conditions and
influences over which thev have
no control, directly responsible for
many offieir offenses.
Mothers too often are lacking in
sympathy for their children and
many a wayward boy or girl might
have bad a different story to tell
had mother but taken the time or
had the inclination to provide In
telligent, sympathetic care.

today with Senator Borah of
