WILL GET A SUGAR FACTORY
There is to be no halting in the work for a beet sugar fac
tory in Salem -
And no cessation of. the effort to get 1000 to 1500 acres
of sugar beets grown next year, and 8000 acres in 1928, which
will bring the. factory. ,
This should be the concern of every person in this sec
tion It -is the most important development work that can be
done here, not excepting any.
Sugar beets will make a paying crop here on the right
kind of land
For the beets only.- - But still more important is the fact
that growing sugar beets as a rotation crop will improve the
soilmake' it produce larger crops of other kinds
And the by-products will boom dairying, live stock breed
ing generally, our poultry industry and all the other indus
tries Qn the land.
!The people of Salem could afford to give a bonus to the
farmers of this section, to get the bet sugar industry started
Once started, it will take care of itself in the way of
cities, reached by cold storage shipments. This seems to
justify enormous expansion in the black sweet cherry branch
of the industry.
The necessity for the development of a gigantic bee
industry here is now well recognized for the .pollenizing of
the fruit blossoms. With ample late bee pasture, ours will be
the best bee district known, and this is now being provided,
with Grimm alfalfa, the white and sweet clovers, including
the Hubam clover and other suitable crops, giving the bees
a long season for their work.
THE CHERRY CITY OF THE WORLD
Salem was named "The Chery City of the World" by A. F.
Hofer a number of years ago, when he was secretary of the
Salem Commercial club, now the Salem Chamber of Com
merce And Salem ( has lived up to that name and is capable of
living more "Superbly and completely up to it; qualifying for
the high honor by both quality and quantity production
Though she has added a number of handles, as the logan
berry center, the prune center, the flax center, the walnut
and filbert center, the strawberry city, the mint city, the
celery center, the poultry center, and a number of other dis
tinctions through linking up with outstanding industries on
the land the manufacturing and shipping and merchandising
and banking facilities of the city.
"All the great sweet cherries of commerce were originated
in the Salem district the Lambert, Bing, Black Republican
and the Long Stemmed Waterhouse and several substitutes
used for pollination purposes ; all except the Royal Ann or
Napoleon. And 6ne authority includes the Royal Ann. Any
way, the Royal Ann is brought to perfection here
' For the natural conditions are here; the right combination
bi soil and sunshine and showers. The growing of sweet
cherries on a commercial scale, excepting for a few. sections of
Michigan, is confined to the Pacific coast; and the best
cherry section of this coast is the Salem district; best in
possibilities of both quality and quantity production on a
given number of acres, and having the lowest priced lands
adapted to cherry growing, and scores of thousands of surplus
acres of such land.
The Cherrians, Salem's famous good will and booster
organization, with their fine Cherrian band, typify the inter
est of this section in this industry.
After reporting the interview to
Roberta on their way home, Piggy
said with a chuckle: "He looked
me over and quizzed me to his
heart's content and didn't tumble.
So that's all right. Nobody's go
ing to suspect us now."
His chuckles deepened into
laughter when Janet gave them
her account of he invasion of
their domestic sanctuary.
"Bully," he exclaimed. "They
have swept and sifted us. We're
Ceclia, whom he .now saw for
the first time since bandaging her
ankle the night before, looked up
at him with a tremulous smile
from the couch where she was ly
ing. ""Thanks to you! I don't know
how I can ever thank -"
"Oh, rats!1 Piggy interrupted,
grinning at her. "Forget it! I've
had the time of my life. Anyhow,
you'd be there yet, if It hadn't
been for Bob. It was her scheme.
I didn't know a bonfire would
scare them silly and I never
would have thought of those cats
in a million years!" He chortled
joyously. "If you're so chock full
of gratitude that you can't hold it,
spill it on Bob. She's respons
ible." Roberta shook her head. "No,
Peter, you're the hero of this little
tale," she said lightly, but with
the mysterious something in her
face that always set his heart
hammering and gave him an in
sane and otherwise unprecedent
ed desire of kiss her. "I may have
thought of the cats, but you found
them. You've done everything. I
owe you a lot besides money,"
she added, more soberly, "and
there must be a lot of that."
"Oh, not so much. I've still
got some left and the worst's over.
All we have to do now is to sit
tight until the tumult and the
shouting dies. The rest's easy."
Wherein he failed to take ac
count of several gathering forces,
among them Clifford Nixon's re
current memory of an elusive but
haunting resemblance, the wide
spreading ripple from a pebble of
gossip carelessly thrown, and the
power of the press.
The last of these was the first
to manifest itself, for Nixon's as
siduity in spreading the news of
Celia's abduction among the
peace officers of a dozen towns
became known, and Scott's prom
inence, as a wealthy manufac
turer multiplied the news value of
the story. Consequently Boston
reporters appeared upon the
scene before night, and their New
York brethren flocked in a few
hours later, all sharp set to
pounce upon every clue.
Scott locked his gates and
loosed his dogs, conducting all
business by telephone. The only
persons admitted to the Birch-

There must be pollenizers, because all sweet cherries are

willingly, and return you a profit besides.
Pruning will increase the spread of the limbs, and keep
them nearer to the ground, within easy picking distance.

We can grow scores of thousands of tons more sweet
cherries than we do, of the very finest quality, produced on
earth , - .
, .And the era of such, production would come about quickly
if congress could be induced : to change the tariff rate on
cherries from 2 cents a pound to 6 cents a pound; the rate
that was asked for, and should have been granted when the
bill for the present act was" under consideration. ; This would
guarantee a fajr price always . for , the Royal Ann cherries
needed for, maraschino manufacturing. The unfair competi

the planting of an enormous new acreage of Royal Ann trees.

moned from New York, .all of
whom, to their intense disgust,
were forbidden to disclose to
newspaper men any knowledge
they might have of the case, on
pain bf instant annihilation- In
vain they argued that publicity
might lead to important informa
tion. Scott was obdurate.' He
had, no stomach for public an
nouncement of previous trouble
with his family and his elder
daughter's probable part in" tjhis
affair. Nixon, under orders and
besieged at the Jaffrey Inn, re
fused to be interviewed.
Therefore the reporters gleaned
what and when and where they
could, learning the little that was
known and much that was. sur
mised concerning Roberta's dec
laration of independence and sub
sequent disinheritance. The next
day, conservative papers in both
cities discreetly hinted at a breach
in "Scott's family relations, al
leged details of which were spread
in headlines over the first pages
of sensational sheets. . But no in
timation of the exile's presence in
her own country leaked out. She
was supposed to be in Paris.
The sheriff at Fitzwilliam,
bound by no oath of secrecy, con
fided to his fellow villagers that
it was a darn shame for Scott to
suspect that poor, forlorn little
widow, just because she happened
to be a stranger. Anybody could
see that she and her help were
nice, quiet, respectable folks. He
wouldn't blame her a mite if she

like this. Fitzwilliam, agreeing
with him. naturally talked. As a
result, reporters in livery buggies
sped through the-woods, to swarm
at Fitzwilliam, seeking inter
views, and it developed upon
Janet and Piggy to hold them at
bay. Mrs. Smith, postrated by
this distressing publicity, was
said to be confined to her bed.
As far as possible, Peter Brown
also kept in the background, fear
ing that some of these lynx-eyed
crafty news-hounds might have
known him by sight during a
former somewhat spectacular in
carnation and be keen enough to
recognize him. One of the New

The present law provides for

committee decided to change that
to give the inspector legal oppor

would allow the inspector a flat
