DR. M. C. FINDLEY
AT HOME AGAIN
Di M. 0. Fiwilcy is home attain
aiCwiKii absence of nearly six months,
-during which time he has visited
net.'ly all the important cities of
Europe. Tho (looter's trip was for the
purpose of studying the latent methods
of treatment of diseases but managed
to me the tbiiiKS of interest wherever
he went. Since his return he has
been entertaining his friends with
otories of his trip and warms his
place in the hearts of Oregonians by
saying that he was much impressed
with the fruit advantaKea of America
as compared with any other country,
nd first with the quality of the fruit
of Oregon as compared with any of
the other countries he has been in ;
'that Ituly, the so-called garden spot of
the world can Dot produce the quality
of fruit we have here.
BpeakluR of his work in his pro
fession, the doctor says, the idea
which generally prevails as to the
lectures is wrong. Most persons
think that the leotureajare In the lan
guage of the oouutry where they are
given, but this impression is erro
neous as all the lectures he attended
were in English.
Another advantage of his trip abroad
which the doctor appreciates waa the
opportunity of supplying himself with
most ef the new iuitruuieuta used by
the leaden in bis profession.
Dr. Find ley says that the special
work in Vienna was much better than
any other place he has been while for
the beauties of scenery he, file
nearly all others, found Switzerland
away ahead. He managed to speud
some time in Liverpool and London;
made a tonr tluoah Scotland.

Vienna, where he remained for tho
greater part of two months. Home

Mr. Mxlboruf talked at considi rabl
length ti lling of the great advantaus
to the community of maintaining a
cannery that could handle thti surplus
fruit and cnng'atulati-d Mr. Sampson
on the showing made by him, which
he said was belter than most other
canneries in the state. It is a matter
uf regret, he said, that the frc.it
growers generally were not inclined to
sell their fruits to the cunue y instead
tf shipping to New York and other
distant points but explained that the
fruit growers were som -times carried
away with the high prices paid at
times for choice f'oit and naturally
were in hopes of receiving a top price
for all of their produot, whereas if
they would ship only such fruit a
there was a demand for and sell the
lalanon to the cauneries they would
make a larger profit and never find
themselves in the position of having
their fruit reach an over supplied
market and get little or nothing for
it. He also explained that tn all fruit
section! in which great progress had
been made it was only after the or
obardists had learned that the cannery
was au institution established for
their benefit, but that it could not
prosper or help them to prosper unless
they would deal with it.
Thure was considerable talk on thtB
line after which the outside appear
ance of the canuery was commeutsd
upon and here again Mr. Mtlbonef
suggested that if they would keep the
cannery well painted and a neat sign
out so as to lend an air of prosperity,
l! would go far toward assuring the
people, especially the traveling public,
mat ic was indeed t live institution
and backed by a country rich enough
to supiwrt Industrie and to warrant
homeaeekers to locate here. Before
the meeting was over Manager Samp
sou was instructed to call for bids for
painting aud otherwise improving the
appearance of the cannery.

CREAMERY TO BE BUILT
IN GRANTS PASS
A. H. Farnum of Ux bridge, Macs,,
is in the city for the purpofe of mak
ing arrangement! for the establish
ment of a creamery here. He at
tended the meeting of the Commercial
Club Tuesday eveningnd stated that
he wa in .position to provide the
necessary machinery, and asked theco
operaiton of the busiuess men to assist
him in various ways.
Mr. Fa'uham was here two yearn
ago ou the same project and concluded
to put in tlift creamerv but was obliged
to en east ou buine-s matters and
while away was informed that an
other creiimery bad been estamisneu
and so dropped the matter for the
time being. Recently, on learning
ihat th re was yet an opening, decided
to come here.
The Com nerclal Club referred Mr.
Far i) ham to their executive com-uiitt'-e
nnd they in turn appointed a
committee to assist him. We learn
since that satisfactory arrangements
are und r way and that the creamerv
will probably be establ shed within the
city limits of Grants Pa-s in the very
uear future. Mr. Faruham waa called
to Portland on busiuess Wednesday
even ng and before leaving made ar
rangements with Secretary Andrews of
the commercial Club to iuterv lew the
farmers of this section with a view of
securing their dairy product. It would
be well for those who will wish to deal
with the creamery to call at the
chamber of commerce.
