SALEM FLAX MILL.
About to Realize the Dreams of
Mrs. W. P. Lord on Flax
Salem rejoices in the prospects
of a flax mill. Eugene Bosse, the
flax grower authorized a reporter
of the Statesman to say. "You
can say for me that there will be a
linen mill in Salem and it will be
in operation on or before February
1, 1905, with a capacity of 40,000
yards of linen per wees'
The Statesman adds: "The re
mark was made lat evening in
conversation with a Statesman re
Dorter. However much he was
urged be positively refused to say
another word iu that connection,
but insisted that this statement
was all that he was at liberty to
give out to the public at present,
as the plans are still in an im
mature state and would not bear
publicity at this time."
The rest of the state congra
tulates the Capital City on its pros
pects of this new industry. The
flax industry is an undeveloped
resource of the state and if its pro
duction and manufacture should
prove practical and profitable, the
neonle certainly have cause to
thank its promotor who is none
other than Mrs. W. P. Lord. Mrs.
Lord is both mother and father to
the flax Industrv in this state.

caue of the unusually long dry
summer, the state health depart
ment is kept more on the alert
than under ordinary conditions.
Dr. Cary found the conditions here
much better than he could two
weeks or even one week earlier.
In compliance with a resolution by
the city council, provision had
been made to take care of the re
fuse from the creamery. A cistern
had been dug back of the creamery
down to gravel and in this the
wastings from the inside are now
run by means of a pipe. The Lit
tle Palace hotel has given orders
for four septic tanks and an addi
tion to the rear of the building is
being erected. Dr. Carey looked
over the conditions of the town
generally, noting improvements
and efforts toward better sanita
tion and wherever additional im
provements suggested themselves,
notified the property owner.
