At thfl Salem Chamber of Commerce luncheon yesterday,
there was a splendid spirit of cooperation outlined by the
principal speaker, Julius Meier of Portland.
- Mr leier,' head of the greates c mercantile concern in
Oregon, has 'aubscnbed to $10,000 of the 'stock of Salem's
second linen mill and is one of the directors of the:company
to build and operate the. proposed mill- ' ' . e . ;
.And'he'iwiedicted great. developments in the" linen in
dustry here', and in the life time of those now on the field of
action.- : . '
lie pledged the further support of the people of Portland
to this present project, to the extent of their quota, $175,000,
and he Inyjted, the people of Salem, , in any project in which

. The British rParliament decided that the home country
should become self sufficient in sugar, and so a stiff duty
was assessed upon imports of sugar, and besides, a law was
passed giving very handsome bounties upon home, produced
sugar; to commerce at about the-average-wholesale: pnce of
sugar in the United States, and to become lower each year
f or a ten jearperiod- ; '
: And the result lias been the development of a large beet
sugar Industry inlEnglahd, and Scotland
.i-VAnditis growing' fast. : It hasljust been announced that
the Turner family interests, sugar refiners running back to
$55, in, connection with the1 Anglo-Dutch group of sugar
iTLahufacturers, are.totake on beet sugar manufacturing 6h
an extensive scale, at Earlestown, "giving the-farmers -.of
lancashire' and Cheshire a chance to enter upon sugar beet
cultivation." -. " r . ' , .. r - ; v...'.- -,
ix The information regarding this year's beet crops in that
country isextremely satisfactory, particularly as regards .the
tirospecU for the success' of beet culture in north Britain. Not
phly w the crojp thriving throughout the districts in England
'where it' has been introduced,-but even in the far north of
Scotland remarkable results ara reported. As far north as
Cromarty 'and the Hebrides experiments have shown the
Scotch climate to be apparently suited to sugar beets, boih
'4he yield per acre and the sugar content comparing favorably
Fith those obtained in established beet growing areas on the
'continent.;' 1 - , "
J 4The reason advanced in explanation of these results,'
cording to a dispatch to Facts About Sugar, the leading
'magazine of the sugar industry, "is that the secretion of
Vuear in the beet is dependent on light rather than on heat
jfrom the sun. The north of Scotland in midsummer, of
vjcourse, hasveiy iong day;'and a very short night, in conse
quence of iU high latitude. The crofters of the Hebrides and
""the farmers of Ross and Cromarty have not been so dull, as
.not to profit by this discovery and are already looking to the
teet crop to relieve'their depressed agriculture." ; 1 ' :
The development of the industry has been peculiarly
' Ratifying to the men who advocated the measures intended
to bring it about, because they hoped for its very general
distribution, partly for the benefit of the agricultural dis-

The forward looking statesmen in our country should

do need, however, is a slightly higher rate of duty on foreign

At first I could .not understand
what Dicky was saying so excited

over the' telephone.
"What's, the matter I asked
anxiously,' and - the question Si
lenced him abrubtly for an in

" "Matter!" he exploded. "You'll

gan, but Dicky cut me oft short.

mocked. '1 suppose I forgot where
I put them, or something like that
there's so much surplus space to
store things in this blasted dump,
I tell you they've been stolen, and
.111 bet I know where to lay my
hands on the "
"Stop, Dicky, STOP!" I com
manded, for I knew he meant the
Marks family and I feared that
Mrs. Marks in the next apartment
would hear his excited tirade. "I
know where your clothes are all
of them." ; '
"What!" Dicky fairly bellowed
the word into the telephone. "You
what? Say that again!"
I repeated the words slowly,
adding placatingly:
"And I will bring them inwith
me this afternoon."
"This arternoon? That's alto
gether too late. I've got to wear
those moonlights at a banquet to
night. What the devil Is this,
anyway? A practical joke? If so
your sense of humor is atrophy
ing. -What 4'ye mean, you've got
the clothes?"
f forced myself to meekness,
for I realized that though I was
blameless, Dicky had just cause
for his Irritation.
"The Toor Wttle Sweetheart!'
"T took , all your best things
with me in a suitcase and letf
them at the Durkees when I
.came put.!' I explained. "Mijs.
Durkee insisted upon it. She said
they would be stolen if I didn't."
V "Of all the idiocy." Dicky ex
ploded, inconsistently forgetting
that he had just entertained the
same theory. "But," .worriedly,
"I don't know what to do. I sup
hose I could phone old Alt to
bring them in but I've " '
"Don't do that," I Interrupted.
"He wouldn't want to leave his
mother that , long."
"Why? Is she sick?" he asked,
genuinely concerned, for he is very
tond of our childlike little friend.
rtThe poor little sweetheart!"
Tie exclaimed. "But if Edwin's
going to operate we needn't worry.
But I've got to hare those clothes.
And, what's more, they've got to
get here in time to go to the tail
or's and be pressed before dinner:
time, if you have to taxi in U
the -way:" - f, J
"Wait a second," I said, ani,
looking at my wrist-watch, I made
a mental calculation. v. '
"I can catch that 8:23." I said,
"which will get- me to Marvin at
noon. The next train from there
will enable me to reach home
about 4 o'clock."
A Happy Moment.
That will have to do. I sup
pose," he said reluctantly' , "I'll
stop , at that little tailor's, four
doors from us and : tell him to
save the time to press the clothes
at 4 o'clock,; Don't stop for any
thing 'till you get them to him,
for he's a busy chap and independ
ent 'as they make 'em. .If you're
not there on the minute you, say
he'll take up something else; and
you can go hang. And be sure
not to go out anywhere else, even
on an errand, until I get home.
I'll be late and just have time to
make the .banquet" ; ,
"All right. I'll attend to every
thing," I promised, the while t re
flected that a hectic half-hour was
in store for me, . . When Dicky Is
preparing to go to any function I
feel as if , I were in. the center of
a maelstrom, and w hen he finally
departs I am as limp as if I. in
deed had been drawn through one.
"Good girl!" - Dicky's voice
changed subtly-, frpni, a,v harrying
note to a possessive, caressing one.
"Tell me, do you lore me?"
It was a familiar query, almost
a careless one.i When Dicky is In
good humor he 'often puts It at the
end of his conversation, telephone
or otherwise, as a sort of caress
ing puncthation ; mark. But it
never falls to stir my' pulses, no
matter in what mood I am, and
the present moment was no excep

"The pelts of foxes raised in the
Salem district are better and have
a finer grade of fur than those in
Minnesota and the middle western
states,' according to E. E. Amsden,
manager of the Salem Silver Fox
company. :.
Mr. Amsden has the proof for
the above statement at the com
pany's farm two miles' west of
Salem on the Salem-Dallas road.
He has five pups which are now
five and one half months old and
all have exceptionally fine pelts,
Mr. Amsden has bad considerable
experience with foxes. At' Twin
Falls, Idaho, he assisted J. Fred
Stratton In 1 starting a fox farm
and acted in the capacity of sales
man for some time. He was affili
ated with the Mt. State Fox farm
of Eugene for three years and
through his experiences he has
gained a thorough knowledge of
the fox business.
When asked the question, "Do
you think that the country is be
ing 'overstocked with foxes?" Mr.
Amsden said: rtio, there is great
demand for breeding purposes.
Europe is developing the fox In
dustry and I believe that it will
take 20 years before the demand
for breeding purposes will de
crease materially." .
1 The Salem Silver Fox company
is operating on a plan known as
pooling agreement plan. Any
who desire may buy foxes and
have them kept at the farm. The
puppies from all of the stock on
the farm are divided pro rata. In
other words, each person having
stock on the farm will get an
equal increase from their invest
ment." Twenty-four foxes ' are now at
the farm, and there is room for
many more. Among the stock are
foxes from the famous Rickmore
strain from Judge J. Ford Strat
ton's Michigan farm. Visitors are

, - J.; B. Yeon, who constructed the
Columbia . River highway, was a
guest of the Salem Chamber of
Commerce at theirv luncheon Mon
day. He accompanied Julius Meier
on his trip trov Portland. Called
upon to address a few remarks to
the meeting, Mr. yeon declared
that Oregon citizens should be
proud of their roads, j
."The roads are maintained in
such " linfe condition," Mr. Yeon
stated, "that it is a pleasure to
drive upon them. He declared it
to be his belief that the state of
Oregon is capitalizing its invest-
ment by adding to theood roada
program. j j
"The main tfunk highway
through Oregon is jthe "show win-f
dow for Oregon," asserted, . Mrj
Yeon. He said tlsat Oregon is
seen by tourists miostly from the
highway, and therefore, it is a
good thing to maintain the roads
diligently. j !
Speaking of the Columbia River
highway, Mr. 'Yeon! said he realiz
ed when It was built that a mere
45 miles of scenic) beauty would
not be sufficient to lure tourists,
