The Salem Floral Society is making a drive for 5000 members,
at one dollar each, to be expended on beautiful shrubbery, for odd
and neglected corners of our city now lying wild and unimproved.
But we may rest assured that Caroline Testout, our glorious
shawflower; wilt nctte disturbed but will preside along our streets
in increasing displays. The state and the city and county deserve
credit for co-operating with citizens.
The school district could do a great deal more in beautifying

The following letter, which was
sent fcy Fred M. Haslam. of Fred
Haslam it Co.. to several United
States senators, illustrates the seri
ous menace which confronts the sur
gical' Instrument industry which was
deTeloped during and on account of
the war. It is universally conceded
that dyestuffs should hate adequate
protection as a , measure of Justice
and as a measure of national pre
paredness in ease of another war.
There are exactly the same reasons
why the surgical instrument indus

tection, .a fact which we believe
fully recognized by the congress.
