FIT UP SALES
SNAP, IS OiCAMI
Indications that the December
frosts will have no harmful effects
upon the fruit farm sales Is apparent
from the fact that real estate trans
fers in orchard holdings are being
consumated daily, as is shown by un
interrupted business in the Marion
county recorder's office.
One of the largest real estate trans
fers in Polk county took place De
cember 28 when J. M. Card, promi
nent hop grower of Dallas, purchased
a 60 acre ranch from A. 8. Campbell.
This farm is located near Dallas and
is regarded as one of the finest or
chard holdings in the state. Six acres
of prunes on this place netted Camp
bell more than $8000 last year and
the new owner expects to realize an
excess of that amount from this years
crop. The trees were not damaged in
the least by the recent low tempera

With the replacement of . Deputy
Warden John C. Talley at the peni
tentiary by James W. Lewis, a well
known Salem man, action toward
pacing the prison administration on
the same efficient basis as was the
state hospital while under the super
vision of Dr. R. E. L. Steiner, is seen
by many. The appointment of Lewis,
who is regarded as an expert on pris
on affairs, to the post of deputy war
den is considered to be a step away
from the "gruff methods attributed
to the state penitentiary, and toward
a more "humane" nanaiing oi aiuura.
When Dr. Steiner was. named suc
cessor to Warden Stevens at the pen
itentiary early last summer it was for
the purpose of applying the same sys
tematin methods he had used at the
state hospital, and for the building of
an efficient personnel, which It was
felt, would be to the prison's advant
age. The great nenem r. Bieinem
advocacy of a "square deal" would be
to such prisoners in whom could be
awakened a new hope in life, and a
willingness to assume the, responsibil
ities of American citizenship, .was
readily recognized. And it is the
furtherance of this policy as was ex
ercised with his patients, that the
Lewis appointment was made by Dr.
Lewis is a man of quiet demeanor,
but firm ; and it is such characters
who are clean, square and kind, but
with a quiet firmness that commands
pbedlence and brings a cheerful re
sponse to the - discipline necessary at
all times, which. Dr. Steiner believes,
will spell success for the Institution.
