PAGE FOUR THE MASON COUN &apos; ffOURNAL THE MASON COUNTY JOURNAL The community, like the individual, wants all the new and modem things of life and does not  to be out- done by neighbors. The fact that each of these new ideas calls for more money and higher taxes is an after consideration. For some of these there is money return while for others our reward 'comes indirectly, but none the less surely. Shelton people desired a suitable grounds to add to desird a suitable grounds o add to the many attractions Of the Olympic Highway and to induce the passing tourists to tarry here overnight, and mayhap, supply their, immediate needs from our merchants. At any rate they are welcome to tarry awhile and pass on with a good word for Shelton. GRANT C.

Fortu- nately the people who have no supply ahead are buying sparingly and sugar stocks ar piling up fast in the sea- I ports. When the stocks get too big ,the price will come down, and it is to be hoped that this will be forced before the canning season is over. It will happen surely just before election, and about that time the BERRY "CROP SHORT From the large berry growing dis- tricts near the eannery centers re- Orts come that the freeze of Decem- r will, very materially cut down the berry yield tlfis season, and the rospect is for even higher prices an are now offered, with an in- creased demand for apples and larg- er fruits. The latter will be in de- mand for drynig purposes if sugar is held at the present high prices when canning time comes. Between the cannery calls and the demand for fresh market our berry growers are due for a profitable season and should give their berries and fruits special attention. Raspberries and loganberries made a poor growth last year because of the dry season, and the crop will be more or less short in this locality.

Of course the farmers have little[ opportunity to profiteer but our city friends continue to complain about "Putting the big ones on top"--pota- toes, berries, apples and such like. Most of us have trouble at times to distinguish between "putting the best fot forward" and deception. The democratic state convention Ilministered a bitter pill to a major- ity of those present, no doubt, when it passed the plank endorsing proM- bitten, and another when the league of nations came along--but it had to be done. 'Twas the dictum of the big boss in Washington. Well, Mason County has .fared pretty well at the party state con- ventless. The republicans named M. E. Reed on the delegation to select the next president, and the demo- rats passed out the empty honor of being one of the presidential electors to George Adams. i. D. J. B. Riley of Washington, D.
