QUALITY AND SERVICE
"Salem Folks Use Loganber
ries for Pastry Because
No Other Is Grown Here"
In malting a mention of loganberries
the Coldwater (Michigan) Daily Re
verter, which presumedly claims to be
ronducted nlong intelligent lines i a
live town of liOUO inhabitants, says the
fruit is used exclusively in tho vicini
ty of Snlom, Oregon, for pastry, as
rberriea and other slniilnr fruits are
lint grown in this region.
This startling Information comes in
the form of B clipping from tho news
paper aforesaid to Mnnnger I'aulus of
the Salem Fruit union, sent by l'hillip
Gilbert, formerly a fmit grower and
lawyer of this city, now located at
Minneapolis. Mr. Gilbert suggests that
more advertising matter ho sent to the
ast from this region. The item from
the Reporter is herewith giveu in full:
"Charles Spatilding, Coldwnter's vet
rran commercial salesman, wns exhibit
ing a speciment of logan berries at the
Jioportor office today that are a nov
rlty in this part of the country. The
jdant was sent to Mr. Spaulding a year
go from Siilem, Oregon, by a brother-iulaw-
I'liilip Gilbert, formerly of Cold
water, who is now engaged there in
ranching. The plant is rather fragile
1'Ut grows to the height of twelve to
fifteen feet The berries resembled
gigantic red raspberries in shape, but
when ripe they are of a deep purple
color. They have the delicious flavor
of red raspberries combined with the
tart of the cherry or currant and make
moBt appetizing pie. This fruit is
ued exclusively on the const for pastry
as cherries and other similnr fruits are
not grown in that region."
The Medford Mall Tribune, in a news
story relativo to a number of burg
laries recently committed in that town,
nays that the police are, watching for
Tarro! l'owell, who is suspected of hav
ing committed the crimes. This is the
IJimi' lad who is suspected of having
etolcn money and clothing from a Sa
lem friend several weeks ago.
