Ol.vmpia should do her share towards the European Relief Whether friend or foe, we cannot know that children are perishing for want of food and clothing without doing all in our power to help them. It is the terrible result of war, which has set the world back many years, and done incalculable harm, and no appreciable good that could not have been brought about without war, if people had the spirit of fair play. The children are not to blame. The grown ups even, could not prevent the war, which was brought about by the inordinate greed of the so-called "governing classes" of the Central Empires. Granny Bill E. Humphrey is recommended by the Washington state delegation in Congress for appointment on the U. S. Shipping Board. We think this is a mistake. Granny knows so much more about the tariff than anything else he should be on the tariff board. He still talks about "the foreigner paying the tariff", and believes you can tax the American people rich; and that you can "protect" people by bleeding them to build up immense fortunes for a few favored industries. Bill's great talents should by all means be used on the tariff board. Harding was.elected on the ißsue of the League of Nations. In stead of carrying out his party platform on that question his congress at once passes a high tariff law, giving the tariff barons a bigger graft than they had under the Payne tariff which caused Taft's over whelming defeat in 1910 and 1912. If they put over such a law just watch what the people will do to them in 1922. George Harvey asks, "Have we passed from drink to dope?"

Standard Will Publish a Series of Articles on Onltare far Thurston Through the courtesy of tbe Olym pia Chamber of Commerce, Tbe Stand ard will publish a series of articles on the culture of the Logs? Blsrs berry, commonly known as the Logan berry. These articles will be care fully prepared by Secretary H. B. Fults, of the Chamber of Commerce and will, for the most part, be quo tations from the few known authori ties on the Loganberry. The Chamber of Commerce has made arrangements to furnish Logan berry plants to the farmers of Thurs ton county at about $30.00 per thousand, acting as the distributing and collection agency for the Phez company of Salem, Oregon, who have no other interest in the matter than the promotion of the berry Industry in this section of the state. These articles will appear in each issue of the Standard until complete, and will deal with all the different phazes that might be of interest tj the grower, such as planting, train ing and pruning the plants, as well as for harvesting and utilizing the fruit. This information should be espec ially valuable for those who plan to! grow the loganberry either comraerc-J ially or in their home gardens. The first article follows: Origin, Kxtont of (Hiltui-c. During the last few years much interest has been shown in a type of trailing blackberry which is grown chiefly in Washington and Oregon The Logan Hlackberry is the most important variety of this type, and its fruit is especially well adapted to several commercial uses. quantities are marketed in the fresh state, not only in towns and cities of the States in which it is grown but also in the Mountain States and the Middle West. It is evaporated exten sively for the dried-fruit market, and large quantities are canned, preserved and made into jams and jellies. Recently a large part of the crop has been utilized for the production of non-alcoholic beverages. The juice of the Logan blackberry is of superior quality and is preferred by many to that of any other fruit. Because thU variety is adapted to these different commercial uses, raising and market ing the fruit has rapidly assumed considerable importance in the section adapted to its culture. Origin of The Variety. The Logan blackberry is commonly known as the Loganberry. It was discovered in 1881 by Judge J. H. Logan, of Santa Cruz, California, growing from a bush of the Aughin baugh variety of the trailing black berry of the Pacific coast, adjacent to which were growing a red rasp berry and the Crandall blackberry. Because the fruit of the seedling was red in olor and because it was much more productive that the Aughin baugh, Judge Logan supposed it to be a hybrid. The subsequent grow ing of seedlings from this plant which invariably produced fruit similar In color to that of the original seedling, was, in his opinion, still further evi dence of a convincing character that the original was a hybrid. All the other seedlings raised at the same time were quite distinct and seemed to be hybrids between the Aughin baugh and the Crandall blackberry. He, therefore, felt sure that the red fruited seedling must be a natural hybrid between the Auhinbaugh blackberry and the red raspberry, and it has commonly been supposed to be such a hybrid. Recent investigations, however, make it resonably certain that Instead of being a hybrid, this fruit is, in fact, a variety of the Pacific coast form of trailing blackberry. In no important botanical characteristic does the Logan differ from the wild blackberry of the Pacific coast. When crossed with the raspberry or black berry it does not exhibit hybrid characteristice, but acta like a variety of a true species. The fact that the red color of the fruit is reproduced in the seedlings, which Judge Logan con sidered eveidence of hybrldity, is, on the contrary, strong evidence that the Logan variety is not the result of a cross. .Other varieties grown on the Pacific coast which produce black fruit are indistinguishable from the Logan, so far as specific botanical characters of the plant are concerned; and, further, there 1b authority for the statement that wild forms occur which bear red fruit. The Logan, therefore, is considered a red-fruited variety of the wild trailing black berry of the Pacific coast The roots of the Logan blackberry are perennial, that la, they live for many years. T.he canes are biennial, growing one year and dying after the following year. They take root at the tips, like dewberries, and do not send up suckers from the roots, like red raspberries. The fruit, resembles ft large blackberry in shape, but -has the color of the red rasp berry. When very ripe It becomes dark purplish red. It has a brisk acid flavor, which becomes milder and qult4 palatable when the fruit Is allowed to ripen fully on the Tinea. Extent ot Ooltore. The Logan blrry is now a standard fruit for home gardens and local markets in Washington, and Oregon, especially west of the Cascades. Large quantities are grown In the vicinity of the larger cities for the local markets. The largest center of production, Is the Willamette Valley of Oregon. In the State of Washing ton extensive centers are developed, Small plantings of the Logan blackberry have been made In Utah and in the cooler sections of Ariiona, but it is not generally adapted to the climates of these states. It has been tested In many parts of the Central and Eastern States, but does not thrive. In regions east of the Pacific Coast States, where the temperature falls below sero Farhenheit, the canes have been winterkilled, while in the Southern States the summer climate Beems unfavorable. Until further testing has determined whether it is possible to overcome the unfavorable climatic conditions prevailing in the South, the variety is recommended for general planting only In the milder parts of California, Oregon and Wash ington. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1920 TO THE MAN who has been "holding off 99 the buying of a new Suit: As retailers who have been here a long time (and hope to he here much longer—making more and more friends as the years roll hy) may we not oeer a word about buying clothing today ? Here it is: Check up on VALUES! Some folks buy things at most any price—but he who buys well is one who mak§s sure of getting quality—and without straining his pocketbook. In men's clothing it is possible to get real quality reasonably. Particularly in these new suits that have just arrived is this apparent. Judicious purchases of raw materials, short-cuts and better manufacturing processes and the fair pricing make these clothes a really wonderful value at distinctly moderate prices. There is no need to hold off any longer. The "best buy" of the year is here today—call and see it/or yourself.
