SALEM PEPPERMINT OIL CENTER
4 Salem is to have a peppermint oil refinery; the one thing
needed to- fix this city to become in the course of a few years
the great' mint industry center of the United States
i' - Because we have cheaper lands than those of Michigan,
Indiana and other states that produce peppermint oil; lower
' Because we can grow more oil to the acre.
- 'Because our oil has the highest methbl content known.
s Because the peppermint oil of the Willamette valley has
the highest ester content known to the industry ; the quality
thatgives the flavor; in all our oil giving a more lasting
flavor than can be imparted by any other so far produced in
; These natural ad vantages, will make Salem the greatest
peppermint pil center, of the world. As certainly as water
seeks its level. They give our growers what amounts to a
franchise. They can compete with every other section on
more than an equalf ootirtg. (Quality counts. The peppermint
oirindustryis rior overdone in. this country. Other growers
wiD be forced out'of business. The growers here will be able
to persist, beacuse they can compete on more than an. equal
s And there is a. big advantage in having a refinery here;
many advantages to this growing industry here.
OUR GROWING PAPER INDUSTRY
i Salem is to be a great paper mill center. Why ? Because
we have here the available raw materials and the power;
water power. The fact that there is in Salem a paper mill cult
Vhich Is constantly growing is a factor that will hasten this
i Major P. W. Leadbetter,
p and Paper company was
. - . m
agbj made the statement that saiejn was tne center oi me
largt'su pply m the world of pulp wood; w ' T
; ;iVW have'the great supply of the forest reserve in the
Cascades,-billions of feet of it, with a down grade all the way
to Salem. Also the supply of the Coast Range, all the way
' from the Oregon and California line, with other billions upon
'billions "of pulp wood. And the privately owned supplies
amongst it. and in all the valleys between it.
( The? world will always need paper, and paper is made
k from f cellulose, and cellulose is found in every ' vegetable
. .growth in the world that has fiber and will stand up; from
.the' giant of the forest, 5000 years old, to the weed in the
garden that springs up in the night
it . Soj there will always be a demand for the articles of cora
metdeiriade" at the 'present Salem paper mill, and the other
Spaperihill3 "that will come, and there will always be raw
s products. for the manufactured articles, as long as water
Jrtms krd grass grows--
, . ' And if the experiments of the scientists shall find a
i cheapef supply, our paper mills will be ready for it, as the
! prodtict of our showers and sunshine and prolific soil,
i i the Salem paper mill cult is growing through the high
class men enegaged in operating the present big mill here,
and through the fact that our people have hundreds of thous
Unolof -doilars invested in the common arid preferred stock
' of the mills at St. Helens, Oregon, Vancouver and Olympia,
. Vash., the Salem millr and the one-that is about ready to be
, gin -running at Newberg by the Spaulding interests. Such
holdings are bound to increase fast here in Salem.
; ; ; Washington and Oregon are the only states in which such
I new projects can.be considered
sidered because we have the available pulp wooa ana me
, So the great paper mill development is manifestly just
"aheabTor uspuid Salem is due to share' in this to her great
" advantage, with the raw materials and the water powers
