PRAISEWORTHY EFFORT :
Genuine commendation is due the Salem fire department
for: heroic and efficient jef forts; of its' members at, the' fire
which destroyed the Cherry, ,C5ty. flour mill Sunday evening.
With a less efficient organization jof firemen the results to
nearby ; buildings and other "prorty would .have .been far
more disastrous. Money appropriated liberally; as. needed for
equipment and' for, compensations: for this ; department of
