come almost a , household word tn Al-
. bany and Linn county, few residents of
either town or city realise the rnagni
tude aad Importance of the Llnnhaven

As a matter of fact this Is the largest
, orchard enterprise in the stats of Ore
gon. The tract contains 1810 acres. 210

vartetlaa of apples, pears, etc. More

est orchard projects in Oregon, but is
' one of "the greatest importance to the
financial 'interests of Albany and Linn
county. It has " excited more Interest
In -horticulture; In the valley, than any
other effort In; recent ' years.
Mr, J. M. Hawkins, president of the

Local real estate transfers by Salem
firms Indicate the healthy and steady
Increase In values of city and subur
ban properties. Notable among recent
sales made by Salem real estate opera
tors is the five acres, improved, north
east of the state asylum, sold through
Joel R. Benton of D. 8. Rabb & Co.
The consideration Involved waa slightly
In excesa of $1010 per acre, or $6200.
Nothing more clearly lndlcatee the
present, very healthy tone of the local
realty market than the numerous sales
of this nature now being made..and the
total absence of any boom or inflation
of values in this section precludes the
possibility of anything but a sure and
safs development and growth for this
city and surrounding territory.
