Newly Discovered Product of

WASHINGTON, I). C„ Feb. 3.
Predictions that the Colombian Berry
discovered in a hitherto unexplored
region of the South American lte
public for which it was named
would revolutionize the American
berry industry in tin same way that
tlie naval orange, also of South Am
erican origin, marked an epoch in
the history of citrus growing, are
made by the officials of the Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Extensive experiments with tin
giant blackberry discovered and dcs
cribed by explorers of the Agricul
lure Department as four times the
size of the American variety, have
been begun by tin: division of for
eign seed and plant introduction
which plans to distribute the now dis
covery to farmers after determining
in what climates it will grow besi

The climate of the Colombian inoun
