canning center in the northwest.
The total 'number or cases pack
ed by the four great canning
plants In the city during the past
l season aggregate the vast total of
4 8 5.9 $0 cases. -
.Twelve years ago only 23.000
'cases of canned goods were pack
ed in Salem. The increase has
AJj total almost equals half a million
V leases.
, And with the canning of 485,
950 cases in Salem, there has
been paid out during the past six
months, a total of 1247,000 in
pay roll alone. This is a conser-
vative estimate.
And for products paid out ac-
4 tually in Salem for fruits and ber
ries delivered to the four packing
t plants in the city, there has been
. paid out. according to the pack-
ers' own books, a grand total of
$593,000. That is, growers in
the trading vicinity ' of ; Salem,
I have received during the past six
months, a sum almost equal to
$600,000 for their products can-
ned by the four Salem plants.

Those on the Farms Know

Nebraska farmers wives have
issued a Bill of Personal Rights

timatum embracing six points, not

will stand Is the following:
A Dower washing machine -for
the house for every tractor bought
for the farm. - i
A bathtub in the house for
every binder on the farm.

A kerosene cook stove for every

left to time and circumstance. At
j any rate it will - be something
commensurate with the expendi
ture, If we may reason from the
examples -iven. . In short, the
. farmers' wives are going to have
well equipped houses on the well
equipped farms. J And why not?
A labor saving device is as much
. needed in the work a woman does
' as for what performs. Why
should a man have an easy time
' plowing or cultivating the corn
while the wife rubs her washing
on an old fashioned washboard?
H is Justice merely, an equal di-
-vision, that they seek. It may
be not quite easy to install in the

uable ' labor saving . machinery,

tainly Is no reason why. such
1 homes should not have running
water in the kitchen, if the far-
1 mer has a riding plow, ,or a bath

The cherry pack amounts to
35,633 cases for this season.
Blackberries, which have de
veloped as one of our great indus
tries only in recent years, ranks
second in the canning industry
of the city, with 103,686 cases.
The pack of canned prunes runs
about the same as that of cherries.
The actual figures show that 35,
300 cases of prunes were canned
in Salem this past season.
Pears rank' third in the num
ber of cases packed, the aggre
gate being 94,650 cases.
Oregon strawberries, which
grow more to the acre than any
other state in the union, were
packed in Salem with a total. ot
36.850 case's.
The apple pack of tire four
plants will run 58,000 for the
1921 season.
The raspberry pack amounted
to several hundred cases. The
pack of tomatoes this year total
ed 250 cases.
Those who are familiar with
the canning industry, call atten
tion to the fact that although the
enormous amount of almost 500,-.
000 causes of fruits and berries
were packed In the city, the yo?.r
1921 was a . rather unfavorable
one in many respects, especially
in the shortage of the prunn crop.
The same authority estimates
that wltVn a very few years, or
within two or three years, with
favorable crops, the four canner
ies in Salem will put out in ex
cess of 1,000,000 cases of fruits
and berries.
gol darned rain right after an
other all spring. The ground right to work for Just
about two days then soaked up
and soggy for a week.
The "boys" as Jason called the
halt dozen veteran farm hands
had filed the hoes to razor keen
ness during the rainy days but
still couldn't wield them fast
enough to get over the patch-when
the dry days gave them a chance
to work against the weeds
The trustworthy old . horses
never moved so slowly it seemed
to Jason as on the few bright days
he could put a cultivator into the
rows. Now it was going to rain
again and he was so far behind
the season that it seemed as
though he couldn't catch up if a
drouth should set in and last the
rest of the summer
: Jason had lived through other
similar seasons, but this one af
fected him dlffeerntly for after a
fashion more than the value of an
early crop, and of possible second
crops was involved
- Young John Williamson had
left the paternal rooftree a year
previous and settled on a nice level
patch of garden ground, a few
miles down the state road. The
old man had wanted John 'to stay
and live at the old home with his
bride, and old Williamson had
acres enough for them both to
farm. This was agreeable up to
the point of how the farming was
to be done. i
John wanted a lot of new
things, a farm -lighting system,
some new greennouses, . a ; more
modern water plant, and some
power farming equlpmemBt
Father stood for the whole list
till it came to power i farming
tools. He held that the Biblical
admonition that man shall earn
his bread in the sweat of his brow
meant hat hand tillage I was the
only kind that a righteous farmer
would countenance. Further he
felt that these rapid modern meth
ods were too hasty to be good and
too easy to be worthy,
"I'll die before I'll chase some
snorting gas engine up and down
the rows on this garden natch'
declared the old man id his final

So John moved out. And his
mother who regularly visited her
children brought the bad news
that John didn't have any barn
yard it looked like a garage.
Old Jason leaned on the fence
till the rain began to fail heavily
and then went wearily to the
house. I
That night he was taken sick. A
little too much rain, worry, or
hard work or all three hadj put
him in bed to stay
And the next day the sun shone
and a nice breeze commenced dry
ing things up. He could look out
the window and it sure made him
suffer to think that another day
of fair 'weather would find him in
bed when he should be out in the
field.- But fever and pain nailed
him to the old corn husk mattress
and he could only, roll over and
groan. - . . -j ' '! :
A few days - later old! Jason
weakened from what had seemed
like a long nightmare. Te sun
was shining, the birds were sing
ing and it was -a fine day all over
the . country. Jason lay there
weakly and tried to think. . He
wondered what shape the! work
was in. Then he wondered how
soon it would rain again., lie tried
to 'get up. but couldn't. if '

weak attempt to be stern. "These
are working days, the only ones
we've had all summer."
"There's been quite a few of
them before at that," said John.
"You've been in bed only three
days now. It rather feels like an
other shower so don't begrudge
yourself a rest because the sun is
"Oh my God," groaned Jason,
"all I've raised this spring is a
crop of weeds," and he turned
over toward the wall.
"You've had a nice healthy crop
of 'em all right," said John, "but
they're all harvested now. By
night there won't be a foot of your
truck patches that isn't clean of
weeds and ripped up from one end
to the other. If it rains you
should worry."
"What d'ye mean." said the old
man and he sat up.
Then mother thought it was
time to interfere.
"Lie down now and don't get
excited," she said as she bent over
the laboring figure on the bed.
"The day you was took sick I sent
.word to John and he came up. The
next day be brought his automo
bile cultivators and things up here
and he's been at work here ever
since. Now you mustn't be cross
about it."
"Do you mean that you've
weeded and cultivated all that
stuff in the last two days," asked 1
the old man.
"It will be so by night," said
John. "1 borrowed a couple of
tractor cultivators besides what I
own and brought along a couple
of men who can run 'em. I'm
afraid dad that you're going to
have to buy one or two. Old Jer

day and he's as tickled as a kid
with a new bicycle. You can raise
twice as much and do it twice as
often-. no doubt about it. Get on
your hind legs as soon as you can
and see for yourself.
"If 8 a low down trick to play

he lay back on the pillows. But he

Big Sacks of the Mistland
Brand Being Sent to the
Markets Every Day
There is an interesting pro
cess going on at the packing
plant of the Oregon Growers' Co
operative association. High and
Trade streets, where the grading.
sorting and packing of the bulk
of the Oregon crop ot walnuts is
being done something like 100
tons of them in all.
M. P. Adams took In nearly a
million pounds of loganberries at
Brooks the past season for the
association; then he received
prunes for the dehydration plant
of the King's Food Products com
pany for the association. Now
he has. charge of the walnut
branch of the business of the as
He also helped in the grading
and' packing of the filberts; but
they are all gone. They did : not
have enough of JLhe filberts to
satisfy the local demand.

nuts" is the brand on the sacks
that take the nuts to market, and

The next grade,, is "Mistland

Nearly 40 "tons have already
gone to market in these sacks,
and more are going all the time
All the nuts have not yet arrived
at the plant. They are coming
right along. They come in sacks,
too, having been cleaned and
dried i at the farms, mostly in
prune dryers, and they are also
kept separate as to variety.
The first process at the pack
ing plant is the grading, in a big
new grading machine graded as
to size. From the grader they
are poured onto sorting tables,
where women sort the nuts. The
broken, discolored and otherwise
defective nuts are sorted out

He has built the present build
ing, installed the automatic low

put in a capable auto equipment
and modern equipment and meth

ability as an expert embalmer has
been proven in the past eight
years, especially by the hundreds
of bodies that have been shipped
by his firm to practically every
state in the union, and a few into
Canada. Mr. Webb has taken for
his motto, the one used by the
Rotary club: "Service, not Self,"

The Modern Methods
In this age . when science has
made light, power and water ev
erywhere available, when machin
ery has lessened labor and anaes
thetics have dulled the edge of
pain, they have utilized science to
lighten the burden of the sorrow
ing. With the aid of science they are
able to protect the family and the
community from the danger of
contagion, to make transportation
safe, and to remove the traces of
illness and unnaturalness which
used to accentuate the grief
caused by death.
With the help of profesisonally
trained assistants, modern equip
ment, motorized conveyances, and
a fine funeral chapel, they are
able to relieve the family of "all
details, and perform a service that
brings comfort in the darkest hour
and affords the consoling con
sciousness that the last tribute has
been fitting and beautiful.
The Oregon Experts Will Be
in the Field in the Next
Few Days
The experts ,of the Oregon
Growers' Co-operative associa
tion are getting ready to make
a survey of the broccoli situa
tion. It will not be very long
now till arrangements will have
to be made for marketing the
crop, which will come on in Feb
ruary and March; mostly.
One grower up Independence
way said yesterady that he feared
the high water of the past few
days, which ran over his broccoli
field, had Injured his crop. One
of the experts named told the re
porter that be did not think any
serious injury would result from
the broccoli being under water
for a short period.
The association experts will
soon get some idea of what kind
of a crop of broccoli they are
likely to have to handle how
large and of what quality; but
they could say little yesterady.
As most people know, how
ever, rainy weather does not hurt
broccoli. The more rain the bet
ter. The only danger is from too
much or too severe I freezing
weather, and it is generally be
lieved that even such weather
may be rendered of no injurious
effect where the growers hill up
their plants.
