Portland new has another pennant
to wavo before the eyes of the world
Not a baseball pennant, but a "con
vention city" pennant labelled B. P.
O. E. , meaning "Best Place On
Eatth " To the eyes of the iutside
world this statement may annegr
fomewhat' preumplucus, but to the
100,000 or more visitors at the metrop
olis last week there is no doubt of
Portland's position at the head of the
column. Ptrhaos at no other conven
tion wtie such elaborate preparations
made for the entertainment of visitors
and perhaps at no other convention
were these preparations so fully and
completely enjoyed. From the open
ing to the closlDg the spirit of jollity
was rife and if there was a visitor
present who did not enjoy himself it
was because there was something
utterly wrong with his makeup.
Money, especially that of visiting
brothers was ereatly depreciated in
value.. No. 142 had made such exten
sive preparations for the entertainment
of deleeates and visitors that it was
hardly necessary for th? brothers to
tpend their hard earned- dollars. In
this the Portland lodge established
a new precedent and the city has set a
new pace for future convention hosts.
The unselfish loyalty of the business
men and citizens eenerally contrived
to make the convention the greatest
ever and has placed the great nation
al gathering in a new light.
To aid in the eeneral scheme of en
tertainment ar.d likewise to place
their respective lodges on the rasp
manv delegation? established head
quarters in the principal hotels and
to these places hundreds of visitors
flocked daily to enjoy the hospitality.
of the generous hosts. The, most no
ted of these parlors were perhaps the
Calfornia delegations who held forth
at the Portland. They entertained
in a lavish manner, dispensing
oranges, wines, and other products of
their state in generous quantities.
Medford also set a rapid pace and im
pressed the visitors with the fact that
southern Oregon is on the map. Sa
lem save away many cherries. Pen
dleton had an elaborate display ofj
Indian blankets and succeeded in dis
posing of a considerable quantity of
ronnd-up spirit before the convention
was over. Baker, The Dalles, Al
bany, Roseburg, Eugene were all there
and last bat not least. Heppner. No
358 had headaunrters in the new Per
kins, room 100, and here an open house
was maintained tluoughout the week.
The entertainment was not so lavish
as some of those mentioned, but the
welcome was ever as warm and the
friends made were just as many.
With no idea of boosting Heppner or
trying in any way to make a bis rep
utation, the local lodge unselfishly
devoted its time and energy to loosing
after visitors. The Quarters, though
small, furnished rest for many tired
sightseers, and many old Heppnerites
spent pleasant hours with former
neighbors aud made the acquaintance
of new arrivals. The punch table,
presided over by a liveried youth, was
ever ready to meet the demands of
the thirsty, and had a complete record
of visitors been kept it no doubt
would include every state in the un
ion as the recipients of Heppner'a hos
pitality. As it was a roster was sept
in which can be found many names.
but this does not give a definite idea
of the number of visitors.
Heppner entered Thursday's parade
with about 80 members. Owing to
the scattered membership it was dif
ficult to draw out a complete attend
ance, but considering the size of the
lodge the showing was very oredi table
The costume, depicting the shepherd of
old, was typical of one of theeubstan-
tial industries of the Heppner coun
try, and the colors of the order were
dominant in the robes. Pendleton
portrayed the Ronnd-up; The Dalles
presented her wheat and woolen in
dustry; Heppner, without the aid of
brass bands, the shouts of buckaroo
and imitation Indian, marched quietly
through the gazing multitude, a fit
ting representation of the commercial
and induerial life of the community
which they represented. In the par
lance of the street , they were ' there, ' '
and it is a source of pride to the lodge
and to the community in general that
Heppner ahould be so ably represent
ed at such a notable gathering.
In passing, ft is only fair that the
ladies of Heppner should come in for
their share of the honors for if it had
not been for them the headquarters
would havo been without a great deal
of the cheer and warmth of welcome
bo essential to the success of such
affairs. These good ladies were un
ceasing q their eff res to assist in
making the entertainment a success.
The majority of the Heppner crowd
returned home the first of the week,
feeling none the worse for the stren
uous week, but bearing pleasant
thoughts ot the seemingly unlimited
hospitality of Portland.

To Make Loganberry Juice.
Prof. C. I. Lewis of the Oregon
Agricultural College, who is respon
sible for much of the growth in pop
ularity of the loganberry, has an ex
cellent method of preparing the juice
so that it will keep through the win
ter. "Logan berries mike a most
delightful beverage," eavs Prof.
Lewis. "To prepare the juice, put
the berries on the stove with just
enough water to keep the fruit from
scorching. Heat slovflv, mixing and
crushing occasionally with a large
spoon. Be sore not to allow the ber
ries to boil; ISO degrees would be,
probably, as much heat as necessary.
After the berries have softened, put
them in an ordinary cloth bag and
drain out the juice. The process can
be much simplified by a small fruit
"In choosing the berries try to get
those thoroughly ripe. Add one-third
the amount of sugar when the juice
Is put on "the stove, and stir occas
ionally until it is thoroughly heated,
but do not allow it to boil. If it
boils the vinouj flavor is distroyed and
the high aroma at well. In bottling
the juice drive the cork in slig
and fill the space with paraffin.
"This Is a most healthful beverage.
Half an inch to an inch in a glass of
water will be enough. Some may
wish to add more sugar, though the
acid flavoi is pleasant. It is, I be-.
lieve, superior to grape juice. The
time will come when Oregon will be
shipping out train loads uf this juice
to the east and middle west It will
become a popular drink in regions
whete it is very warm in summer.
It is extremely refreshing and cool,
and children may be allowed to drink
as much as they wish.
"The loganberry makes one of the
finest jellies known, also. Truly. our
loganbeiry is coming to its own.
With the great demand for cunned
fruit, a similar demand for dried, and
with the possibilities along the line
of juices, fyrups and jellies, there
is a great future for tha loganberry
