Some Figures About Logans
What Year's Yield Shows
Ideal Crop for Small Tracts
While several tracts of loganberries
have average.! more than five tons to
the acre, these are really phenomenal
yields and like other unusual things in
the world, never happen until the first
time. Loganberry growers in mnking
their estimates ns to yield, place it at
two anil one-half tons an acre as a gen
Several tracts this year went wnv un
der thi estimate and these mnv be rail
ed the unfortunate ones who' had but
little to show -for their year's work.
Then again, where condition have been
about lno per cent in favor of the grow
er, there has been yields that alaiost
equal that of Bruce Vox. living nenr tie

The big grower of loganberries who
perhaps will carry off the blue ribbon
for this, year's crop, is Dr. Chapman
with Ins 20 acre tract not far from Sil
verton. The doctor averaged about five
and three-fourths tons to the acre. The

What Growers Have Done.
The average man with small tracts
runs about as follow.
W. O. Mahoney, living on rural route
three out of Salem, has a four acre
patch this year aiid his total weights
were 35,000 pounds. 17 1-2 tons, which
puts him near the top of the class for
F. J. Chapman, on rural route eight
out of Salem, struck about average
luck this year as he raised 28,331
pounds ou his five acre trnct. This gives
him a little over two and three-quarters
tons to the acre, placing him slightly
above the estimated average of two anil
one-hnlf tons to the acre.

loganberries and lie old 40,523 pounds
This is 20 1-4 tons for his five aud one

quarters tons to the acre, bringing him
pretty well above the average.
WAS IT AN ACCIDENT.
To the Editor: - L. D. Ratliff asks if
Hughes is an accident 1 and then
quotes from Minnie's '-Twenty Years
in Congress" to prove it. The quota
tion is as follows: " We had our guld
en era of industrial development under
the 'Walker Kree Trade Tariff."
Mr. Blaine may have used that lan
guage in his discussion of the tariff
question, but I fail to find it. He did.
however, say that the Free Traders
claimed that "the farmers and plant
ers at no period of our history were in
receipt of such good prices,' steadily
paid to them, in gold coin, for their
surplus product, which they could send
to the domestic market over our owa
railways and to the foreign market in
our own ships."
Then for the Protectionists he says
that "While admitting the general cor
rectness of the free-trader's statements
as to the prosperous condition of the
country, they call attention to the
fact thnt directly after the enactment
of the tariff in 1840 the great famine
occurred in Ireland, followed in the en
suing years by short crops in Europe.
The prosperity which came to the
American agriculturist was therefore
from causes beyond the sea nild not at
home; causes which were transient, in
deed almost accidental. Moreover an
exceptional condition of affairs ex
isted in the I'nited Stntes in conse
quence of our large acquisition of ter
ritory from Mexico at the close of the
war and the subsequent and almost im
mediate discovery of gold in Cali
fornia. A new and extended field of
trade was thus opened in which we bad
the monopoly, and an enormous surplus
of money was speedily created from
the products of the rich mines on the
Pacific Coast. At the same time En
rope was in convulsion from the revo
lution of 1S4S, and production was ma
terially hindered over a large part of
tho continent. This disturbance had
scarcely subsided when three lending
nations of Europe, England, France
and Russia, engaged in the wasteful
and expensive war of the Crimea. This
etrnggle began in 1S33 and ended in
18.-5(1, nnd during those years it in
creased consumption and decreased
production abroad, and totally closed
the grain fields of Russia from any
competition with the I'nited States.
.. . When peace was restored in
Europe, when foreign looms nnd forges
were set going with renewed strength,
when . Russia renewed her export of
wheat, and when at home the output
of the gold-mines suddenly decreased,
the country was suddenly thrown into
distress, followed by a panic and by
long yenrs of depression."
The render can draw Ms own infer
ence as to the present industrial condi
tion nnd thp reason therefor, nnd if.
when peace is. restored in Europe dis
aster may not be anticipated. There
were those nt that time who prophesied
the disastrous results which follows the
restoration of peace, notably Horace
Greeley and ITeury C. Carey, two of
the most ardent advocates of a pro
tective tariff, and may note the advo
cates for nrotection have as good rea
son for anticipating (lisnster from and
after the nations now engaged in war
ahull have "bent their spears into
pruning hooks? ''
Was it nn accident thnt my friend
should have quoted, or misquoted
Blaine, to prove Hughes nn accident. .
- COBB AS ' ' STRIKE ' EXPERT
Washington. Aug. ID. Ty Cobb, ball
player and one of the greatest "strike"
experts in the country today conferred
briefly with President Wilson on how
to hit the ball in a pinch. After he got
through he said he thought the presi
dent knew more about the strike busi
ness than he did.
.T. K. Ellison, living on rural route
seven, Salem, was one of the., fortunnte
ones, as his record shows that from hi
five acres, he sold 44,450 pounds of log
ons, an average of about four and one
half tons to the are.
' Above $100 Per Acre.
William Kosteuborder, ou rural route
seven, Salem, owns a three acre patch
and sold 13,700 pounds at the regula
tion price of three cents a pound, bring
ing him 411. If the family picked most
of his berries, that left him a pretty
fair average for his three acres.
B. O. Zelinski, living near Salem, did
about as well. Ou his three acres he sold
13,32$ pounds nt three cents a douimI.
There is nothing unusual nbout this
yield, yet it the work was nil doae bv
the folks at home, the three acre's
brought in $399.84. Mr. Zeliuski lives
at Hazel Green.
fleorge X. Thompson got in nbove the
average, as from his eight acres, he sold
40.594 pounds, which is almost three
tons to the acre. Mr. Thompson lives
on rural route eight, Salem.
O. II. (trnbenhorst. on the Jefferson
road, has a four and one-half acre tract
from which lie marketed 3.1,057 pouads
aud had a lot more ou the vines but
could not find pickers. Anyhow, he
got almost four tons to the acre.
Small Tracts the Best
The general opinion of those interest
ed in the loganberry industry favors the
plunting of small tracts, with diversi
fied farming. With the rapidly increas
ing business of the two plants 'in Salem,
the future of the loganberry is assured.
The price of three cents a pound is
fairly well established, us it gives the
grower, the manufacturer and the re
tailer a fair profit. In fact, all the
business of the loganberry is based on
the price of three cents a' pound. This
year the picking cost one cent n pound
but with the larger tracts, the difficulty
arises of securing pickers just nt the
right time. All of which is an argument
for diversified farming. It is an ideal
crop fur those who own but small tracts.

A SCHOOL ON WHEELS.
In Southern Pacific Section Onng
under Foreman Tnft, who has n crew
of fifty men on Superintendent Whnl
en's Los Angeles division, there are
twenty-five or more children who are
being tinight daily in a box car which
has been fitted up with benches. They
have a teacher who instructs them
daily ill England nnd Spanish and in
primary work. The result, thus far,
have not only beeti satisfactory, but
the class of men in the gang remains
high. As the gang moves along from
place to place so does the school-car
and the children never have to miss a
day 'a attendance. Superintendent
Whalen has now made arrangements
to obtain an old passenger roach which
will be fitted up with benches and
blackboards and which will be easier
to heat, expecting in this way to im
prove materially the conditions in this
unique schoolroom. He has further
more arranged to fit up a hospital car
for the women and children in the
camp who become ill. Hubbard En

("Hold your horses, the elephants

The giddiest, gayest, grandest, glit

year, the greatest of all seasons. More

circus has reached a point where it is
the despair of many of the smaller
railroads ami taxes their facilities to

There's material enough in this yean
circus to make a dozen circuses of the

nearly 1. 300 employes, three rings, four
elevated platforms, acres of aerial ap

horses, forty elephants, a street parade
three miles long.
The stereotyped ' "grand entree",
with which the circuses were content
to open their program for many years,
has been permanently eliminated from
the Barnum Bailey tournament. This
season the nreuic entertainment is in
augurated by the spectacular pageant
"Persiji or the Pageants of the
