120 ACRES OF FLAX
A. E. Bradley, 'Aumsville
Grower, Still : Going
;i: Strong With Machine
' - A. E. Bradley of Aumsville had,
up to last night, pulled over 120
acres or liax during the oresent
season with his machine, and he
has at least two weeks' of nulline
yet ahead iof him. He has aver

start on the seventh of July.

is possible that he may reach 200

200 by 30. and you have $6000.
That is what hand pulling would
cost, if it could be accomplished
at all, counting $20 an acre for
the labor $ost, which is and has
been the ruling price, and $10 an
acre for securing and transport
ing and , caring for the men and
women and children engaged in
the hand pulling.
Correct this sentence: "Billy
and I are pals," said the wife;
"and he enjoys taking me every
where he goes." ;
Ball Bros., of Turner, working
near Independence, in 19 hours
this week, j pulled seventeen and a
half acres! of flax. . That is the
record In this respect. It amounts
to about 10 acres a day, running
the machine from daylight to

The Bradley machine is the one
that was rushed here from Can

a trial runjthe last part of the flax
harvest of about 50 acres, proving
its efficiency, and leading to the
fleet of new machines that came
this year. -
Wonaen Appreciate It
; Not the least among those who
appreciate the work of the flax
pulling machines are the women
folks of the growers In foriner
years they have had. to bear a
great partjof the troubles of get
ting and preparing for and taking
care of the hand laborers engaged
in pulling.! With the: larger acre
age, they would have had their
troubles piled Pelion on Ossa. to
their back breaking and nerve

have come along and cut out all
their worries and work.;
. The flax pulling machines have
pointed the way to 'flax growing
here in large fields. They have
pointed the way to the full de
velopment of the manufacturing
industry, from the. retting and
scutching to the weaving of the
fine linens (Of. commerce.: They

W, J. Staley, owner of the Cap
ital Business College, announced
yesterday the taking over of the
National School of Shorthand
which has been conducted in Sa
lem for the last two years, the
last year by Mrs.; Ora F. Mclntyre
who goes to the Capital Business
College in the transfer, where she
will be employed full time begin
ning next Monday. In fact Mrs
Mclntyre has been teaching
class in Gregg shorthand in the
school during July.
The National School of Short
hand uses the Karam system,
comparatively new j system, and
this will now, be taught at the
Capital Business College in con
nection with the Gregg system
which has been used by the schoo
for so many years. ; The Karam
system ie a briefer one than he

for many whose work in a general
office is not heavy. It has not
yet been used sufficiently, long to
know whether it will serve for

but it is ideal for newspaper re
porters, students in colleges who
wish to take notes of lectures, and
others who wish to make, and pre

For Thirt j-Fi ve Years.
Friends of Mrs'. Mclntyre will
be pleased to learn of her connec
tion with this pioneer institution
which has been serving the citi
zens of Salem in its line of en
deavor for the last thirty-five
years, having been established in
the fall of 18S9.
' Large Fall Enrollment.
Mr. Staley reports that the out
look for fall enrollments is most
encouraging and that the school
is how having more calls for help
than it can supply. There are
opportunities a-plenty in business
for young people who will prepare
properly. ; -
