Enured at the Postofflce In Salem. Oregon, as second class matter.
The Salem district has developed an important spinach
industry; the most important in the state.
But there is a hint in the Salem Slogan pages this morn
fog of a coming boom in this induitry; and one that will be
endujJ"omeg about through experiments of the Salem King's
Food Products Company in putting up in pulverized form the
spinach dehydrated at the Salem plant and plating it on the
market in cartons and otherwise
And it has made a hit.
" It is proving its worth in dietary schemes for small chil
dren and other children and adults. If the idea takes as the
outlook now promises, thrtre will be an outlet for an immense
amount of spinach every year
And our farmehs will be called upon to furnish great
quantities of this vegetable, which they can do, and which
hov- will hp clad to do.
Royce Allen, an experienced spinach grower in the Labish
Meadows district, reports that he raised six tons to the acre
last year for one crop. -
When it is realized that two crops may be grown, in the
early spring and the late fall, with a third crop of vegetables
in between, the reader can easily see that our land and our
people on the land are able to supply all the dehydration peo
ple may demand , i' :
"Oceans" of spinach, if it is needed.
' It is perhaps no longer necessary to say to the readers of
The Statesman that the eating of spinach freely is a very im
portant requisite for health. Every kitchen or home garden
should have some spinach, and two crops should be raised,
and some of it should be canned at home, or the commercially
canned or dehydrated article should be used when it cannot
be had iri the fresh form. ., '
Spinach is nearly as important in the dietary as milk;
1 and every up-to-date man and woman now knows that a vi
rile race cannot be sustained without milk, nor healthy chil
dren raised, nor old people kept in proper condition.
. One of the greatest arguments in favor of spinach grow
ing commercially in the Salem district is the fact that the
spring, crop furnishes a cash return early in the season when
money Is needed for the cultivation of other crops. And, in
the same way, it adds materially to the net returns from any
given number of acres of land under cultivation. ,
Next week, the Salem Slocran editor will att emnr tn shnw
that Salem is the center of an onion industry of increasing
importance. , f
Every cherry grower should read and act upon the reve
lation of the activities of the maraschino millionaires in try-
mg jo prevent the placing of a protective tariff on Italia
cherries.' That bunch of big business buccaneers put one
over on the Democratic crowd administering the present free
trade tariff law, for even this law provides for a duty of one
cent a pound on any fruit in the process of manufacturing
and surely cherries in brine are in the process of manufac-
. turfng." But this covey of crooks and corsairs will not be able
to put anything over on the incoming administration; espec
ially If the growers of the Pacific coast will keep their eyes
open. Tlje way these vultures of the maraschino plunder-
' bund have worked the administrators of the law leaves a
natural inference that some of the deserving Democrats at
the receipt of customs may not have been entirely disinter
ested. The criminals in this country are not all in the jails,
by a jug full. t J

Before the supply service was

Dawes said, was pulling in" dif

"You have got the same trou

get everything for himself. Tno
president ought to stop it. ,
Mr. Dawes said mistakes were
made. ' - v
"But. I am glad." he continued,
"that there is a desire In some
quarters to make a permanent
and honorable record of what our
men did. There have been .com
plaints that our surplus in France
was sold. It would have kent
40,000 men there trying to guard
it while we peddled li In small

"Every precaution was made to
prevent payment of extortionate
prices for supplies in France."

were thieves hanging around.

"There were grafters who went '

prices. They came openly to our
men and offered bribes. And
thers we were needing their goods
which we had to take, knowing
there would be an assumption in
ome quarters that because we
took them we were bribed. It
was damnable. "
"Then there was the protest
from this country from the shoe
manufacturers, for instance be
cause we bought shoes in Eng
and instead of the United State".
If we ! had not the soldiers would

Mr. Dawes declared that In all
