Logaab en lea Marlon, 't county
the loganberry center of the Uni
ted States, with a larger acreage
than any county. Loganberries' are
doing well now, as growers' sell
their entire crops to the ssren Sa
ism canneries at lire cents ' a
pound. You can make money at
that price, as yields ' are from
4000 to 6000 pounds to the acre.
Cherries Salem is. known as
"The Cherry City." That U right.
as Marlon county, has 11 canning
plants and erery one put' up a big
pack of cherries this year. Grow

center of the Italian prune indus

been doing so' well the past 'few
years, but growers and packers
are getting together and now It is
more than likely that this great
Industry will soon be on an estab

been most, satisfactory the past
few years. Fully 90 per cent of tbe
strawberries packed In the North
