Admiral Peary on his polar trip

called it "Crocker Land." Com

from wheie Peary had sighted this
supposed land and he too beheld
this imaginary country rugged
hills and wooded stretches. It ap
peared to be a permanent mirage.

. The plant of the Salem Butter
cup Creamery company has been
undergoing a series of important
alterations, during the past few
weeks. The plant while inot
thoroughly ' ad jut-ted to its hew
conditions is running at almost
capacity and expects to handle a
bigger and better business than
ever In the future. -
Maehfhery and motors have
been dismounted and moved I1 to
various Other positions In the
plant in order to make room for
new 2000 gallon capacity i ice
cream hardening room.'-This room
Iixh been completed and adds ma
terially tu the convenience and
efficiency of the plant. The com
pany's business ' ' in brick j ice
cream, eskimo pie, and frozen
uckers hafr grown to such dimen
sions of late that the old harden
ing rom has been given over Tal
aiost wholly to the accomodation
of these products. The new hard-
ening room is so constructed that
the cream may be put in one end
of the room and removed at the
other, thus doing away with' the
congestion in loading and unload
ing that hitherto has been such a
problem. ' jj ..
