Albany, June 2. The drive for
funds to insure the opening and
operation of the Albany cannery
this season has been resumed by
committees made up of Albany

The committee met with the Al

Berry Picking Is To
Absorb Surplus of
Labor In Salem, Is
Belief of Race
There is at present no apparent
demand for berry pickers in or
near Salem. There is also a small
surplus of labor in this city, ac
cording to Police Judge Earl Race
who conducts a free employment
bureau at his offices in the city
"I expected a few requests for
pickers by this time," Judge Race
said this morning, "but so far
there hasn't been an application
filed with me."
Belief that berry picking acti
vities will absdrb the 'small sur
plus of labor in the city, was ex
pressed by Judge Race. The few
men whom he has been unable to
furnish with work of some kind
have been chiefly transients.
The strawberry crop h? to be
good, growers believe, and the
goosberry yield will be fair. In
consequence it is believed that
scores or men and women will be
given employment as pickers.
All through the winter Judee
Race has been procuring jobs for

This Is the Way to Make
Every Buy a Bargain
Buy advertised goods. Only good goods, fairly priced,
can stand the spotlight of publicity.
A merchant or manufacturer would not dare to adver
tise merchandise that is poor in quality, poor in make or
that will not give reasonable wear. The penalty of such
tactics is too heavy. No goods and no business concern
can thrive under the weight of public condemnation.
A merchant places the whole reputation of his business
at stake every time he advertises. Naturally enough, he
is careful of what he says and when his statement is
placed in the newspaper where everyone in town may
read so that any untruth in it will be known to all of his
employees and most of his friends then you may be sure
he is doubly careful.
When you buy advertised goods you get a bargain
because they must be as advertised.
So it pays you to read advertisements. Advertising
Read the advertisements in this paper and get the best
of the bargain.
