T At tin nroapnt in the readers of
the Enterprise a few words in re
gard to "Friendship." What
a,i1H we do without friends?
Who. in times of joy, has not tak
ah nleasures in communicating his
joyous emotions to his friend? And
who, in the hour of sorrow, nas not
lessened his grief by telling his
tale of sadness to a friend? Thus
friendship increases joy, and di
minishes sorrow. When a man
thinks nobody cares for bim, and
he is alone in a cold and selhsh
world, he would do well to ask
himself this question, "What have
I done to make anybody care for
and love me?" It is generally the
case, that those who complain the
most have done the least. A help-
intr hand, or an encouraging word

The cbrrsanthemuin fair held at
the Auditorium on Friday and Sat
urday evenings under the auspices
of the Congregational church was a
most successful and interesting
entertainment. The floral display
was excellent and quite artistically
arranged. The brilliant electric
lights caused a thousand 1 jnan
dyes to flash from the gorgeous pet
als of Japan's beautiful national
flower. The floral display was
classified according to colors
white, yellow, red, etc., and group
ed into best assorted and largest
assorted. An interesting feature of
the display was a large and- hand
somely decorated arch of various
nnlored chrvsanthemums. There
were also several handsome quilts
and other fine specimens of needle
work on exhibition, prepared es
pecially for the occasion by the
ladies of the Congregational so

a bad name by calling themselves
Turks, and sometimes by mis
governing his country, but he, him
self, is a tine fellow and belongs to
the superior, dominant races of the
world. He is naturally a fair man

It is said there is a disposition
among Salem citizens to encourage
the rebuilding of the mill, but no
definite steps have been taken. The
origin of the fire is unknown, but
there is suspicion that it was the
work of an incendiary. The Thom
as Kay Woolen Mills Company was
organized in 1889, and began op
erations in February, 1890. It was
run continuously, night and day,
since, and was furnishing employ
ment for 75 hands. It consumed
300,000 pounds of wool annually.
