Will Serve Loganberries
On S. P. Dining Cars
Salem—A. B. Simon, head of the
commissary department of the South
ern Pacific company, has notified the
Salem Commercial club that he will
serve loganberries in the dining cars
of the company the coming season.

in this county this year, and there was

trial on the dining cars.

club, sent him a 25-pound box of the
i dried berries for trial.
