SUBSCRIPTION IN APVAXCK:
One eony, one year 50
Twent copies, one yar lo on
special m-luccim-nTs onered to persons
us of canvassing for
Home ?Iaji MaelnrijiK i'ompany.
Dotibtloss our readers will remcin
ber that, on sereral occasions of late,
we have mentioned the fact of the or
ganization ofa conn-any entitled the
Home Slanufactnrins Coniituy, made
up generally of tlte farmers of I. inn,
Marion am' Polk comities, the intent
and purpose of the Company being to
i nter into the manufacture of wagons,
p!ovs, and ether implements and ma
chines demanded by the fanners of
iliis state. As soon as the whole
amount of capital stock was subscribed
a meeting ol the stockholders was
called, to organize by the election of j
officers, select a place to erect the
necessary shops, and yet ready tor
business. At this
meeting, held at :
Salem, October 12th, 1874, seven Di
rectors were eiccted, lour of whom are
from Linn county, one fiom Marion
i and two from Poik. At a sbsequent
meeting the Board of Directors elected
(. has. v. Bowie, the Director from
, Marion, President ot the Company, A.
;W. Stanard. otie of the Directorsfrom
this cdnnty. Secretary. The suhject
of the location of tlte Company's works
i then came tip. and after discussion it
I was Ordered that notice be given to
the citizens of Saicm, Albany, and
other points inten ded, that proposi
tions in the shape of subscriptions or
donations in cash or real estate, to in
duce the Home Manufacturing Com
pany to locate their workshops, would
be received, the point making the best
showing, offering the largest subsidy,
to secure the coveted boon. Sealed
proposals or donation- to he forwarded
to the Secretary. A. YV. Stanardj from
this time until - o'clock P. M. of
WednesdaY December 2d, 1-74, at
which time there will be a meeting of i
the Board of Directors, when the bids
will be opened, and doubtless the loca
tion decided upon. We have been
thus explicit in placing a full state
ment of the whole matter before our
readers, that all may thoroughly un
derstand jnst what is demanded to se
cure the erection of the factory in this
city. We understand that the business
men of Salem are thoroughly aroused
as to the interest at stake, and will
come down" handsomely in the way
of donations to secure the erection of
the Co.'s works there. Be this as it
J may. we hope everv property-holder
in the city ot Albany, fully realizing
i the Y'ast benefit to accrue from the
erection of the works in this city, will
I giY'e with a liberal hand. The location
i of this branch of industry in this city
j at this time is of more importance,
and of greater Y'ital interest to our
future prosperity and growth, than
any matter hitherto calling for the
action of our people. Xo one can fail
to see the benefits to accrue to this
community from the successful projec-
j tion of an enterprise that must from
j the first hour of its inception be a pay
I ing investment an enterprise that
1 will grow and increase from year to
I year, until its business will have
reached such vast proportions that
hundreds of employees will Ixj kept
constantly at work to supply the de
mand for its manufactures. Secure
this manufactory, and other branches
of industry, attracted hither by its
success, will be erected, thus utilizing
the power furnished by the Santiaca
Canal in propelling machinery, in
creasing the value of our real estate,
opening wide the door for the employ
ment of skilled labor, increasing our
population, and affording a better and
increased market for the products of
the soil of the H;:oin:dii g eotPitryi
We tlo not wish to paint the picture too j
highly, and we belieY'e we have not ; i
in fact, the immense and beneficial ;
results to accrue from securing the in- j
dustry under consideration can no, in I
our opinion, lx; estimated too highly, j
It will have a beneficial effect upon
everv trade and branch of industry
pros,cuted in this community. If;
j these are facts, and we opine none will j
j gainsay them, is it not the duty, is it
not to the interest pecuniarily, of
every citizen to do all in his power to i
secure such benefits, even if for the
' present and we are sure it will be ;
tint temporary the aid so extended i
! may seem to be a pretty heavy burden
in these stringent times? Let us all
'come down" to the fullest extent of
our means in aid ot this enterprise,
and we will never for a moment re
Tin: Ai.dex Frctt Process. As
before announced in this paper, articles
of incorporation have been filed by
well known citizens of this city looking
to the organization of a company for
the purpose of preserving fruits by the
Alden process of evaporation. The
capital stock has been placed at
000, and books opened to secure the
subscription of such capital stock.
Having made in-pury of Mr. Eli Car
ter. Secretary, at whose office the stock
books can be seen, we learn that sub
scriptions are coming in Ycry slowly ;
that there does not seem to be that
interest manifested in the matter that I
an undertaking of so inucii importance
! demands. The primal cause doubtless !
1 is that our citizens generally have not i
; looked into the matter liave not in- j
formed themselves as to the real value j
of the process, and have not estimated ,
j the large- income they would annually ;
rceeive for the products of their orch- !
ends hereafter, were such a company '
in successful operation here. It is a j
! noteworthy fact that thousands of bush-
els we might with truth say, tons of
fruit is Totting on the ground to-day,
because it will not pay for gathering
there is no market lor it. Xomin- !
ally, it is true, apples are quoted at j
25c per bushel, and a few bushels of
choice winter apples may lie sold tor
50c per bushel ; but probably nine
tenths of the fruit raised in this county I
is never gathered, but remains upon ;
the ground when it falls, to be eaten !
by the hogs or to rot. By the Alden j
process, all this fruit has at once a -market
value, and every bushel can be ;
converted into a commodity that will
always bring the cash in anv market
in the world. Apples dried by this
process command a much higher price 1
than by any other mode, commanding '
about :?1 40 per bushel in the Eastern
markets to-day. By this proeessevery j
bushel ot apples raised in Linn county I
in excess of the home demand lias a 1
market value in coin, and by our not i
having such an institution in successful
operation to-day. thousands of dollars
worth of fruit are going to waste.
The difference between drying fruit in
the open air and by the Alden process
is marked. By the first, the' are
liable to the attacks of insects, and are
at all times more or less contaminated
by dust and stray refuse, carried by the
wind, and besides are darkened and
discolored by the partial decomposition
caused by the light and dry beat. By
the Alden process perfect uniformity
is attained ; the process is an evapora
tion in moist air, in the presence of
heat, thus directly imitating nature
hercselt in the organic process of ripen
ing, the whole being so quickly ac
complished that there is no time tor
decay to set in. Neither is the fruit
discolored, but preserves intact the-
fresh tlavor and texture of the original
article. By a small outlay of money
an industry may be introduced that will
make a now comparatively valueless
ptoduct of the county a valuable com
modity ; and the products of our
orchards being thus rendered valuable,
more attention and care will be taken
of our orchards, and as a consequence
a better and more desirable article of
fruit will be produced. It is an invest
ment that, if properly conducted, will
pay all the way through, and if our
farmers and business men will con
sult their own interests they Yvill not
see the enterprise lag one moment for
, the want of the necessary money to
i-ut It !!;:o ttccesfitl operation.
Wasted Oitortfnities. The
long winter evenings are almost upon
us, in which so many opportunities are
improved and so many thrown away.
Among those Who may, in after years,
bitterly regret these wasted opportu
nities, are those thoughtless parents,
who suffer their children to go out
from their presence night after night,
and come hack contaminated with the
world, through not pursuing the course
necessary to keep them at home. If
parent- would retain their children
under their own supervision the com
ing loiig winter evenings let them
make home attractive, or attend them
to innocent recreations outside of their
homes. Youth loves brightness, and
will have it. It is only a question
whether it w ill lie with your sanction
or without it. Be wise in this regard,
and do not imagine that to draw the
cord of restraint tightly will effect
what you desire. K liter into their
feelings, remembering what yours
were at. their age. By all means do
not tall into the habits of some families,
where each goes his separate way to
pleasure and relaxation, for such a
course has caused the entire and com
plete dismemberment of many a
promising household, which, other
wise, might have been happy and
prosperous to the end. Impro-e the
opportunities afforded by these long
winter evenings, that your future joys
my be enhanced and not darkened.
Well Indorsed. The Gilt Con
certs in aid of the Kentucky Library
are not at all speculative. The insti
tution is chartered by the State of
Kentucky. The first prize in the next
drawing, which takes place November
30. is $250,000. It is a reliable insti
tution, and some one Mill get that
money. And that there may be no
doubt as to the honesty of its manage
ment, we cite the fact that the best
hanks in Louisville indorse it, and that
