A Liberal Business' Proposition By
a Salem Business Man
Anticipating a large crop of chittem bark
for tho year 1901 and realizing that this would
bring about lower prices, making ft less profit
able for the producers, Mr. Daniel J. Fry, the
druggist, has had erected a public chittem
bark warehouse, in Salem, where -all who wish
can store their bark free of charge for from one
to five years, thus enabling those, who refuse
to have lov prices forced upon them, by the
large manufacturers and brokers of the east
and abroad, to hold their bark until a better
market prevails. ,
Chitte m Bark Peeling: Will Soon Be
a Thing of the Past
. For a number of years Cascara Sagrada,
or Sacred bark, more commonly known as
chittem, has been very successfully as a laxa
tive and cathartic; indeed, this medicine has
become so popular you will hardly find a drug
store without it, in some form, or other, in this
country or Europe, and every year hundreds
of tons are exported to various parts of the old
world. Until a few years ago the gatherers of
this world renowned pntduct, not knowing its
value, almost gave it away. Three and one
half to four and one-quarter cents per pound
being the ruling price until last year, when
sales were reported of $320.00 per ton.
This . sudden jump was brought about by
the report that' the bark? was giving out,

take a little work on the part of the

London, Aug. 25. Brenner - Balfour
announced this eveningMhat the Brit-
followed by a short crop and, although
other sections of chittem trees in Oregon aud
elsewhere on tho northwest coast have since
been discovered, at the present rate of peeling,
it will be but a few years when the last crop
is harvested, hence the advisability of holding
on to what you have, and in tho end you will
surely get better prices.
The Warehouse
Mr. Fry's new warehouse is located on
Front street, near freight depot, within fifteen
feet of the 8. P. tracks aud one block ftora the
boat landing. The building clovers a space of
.40x82 J feet, contains three floors and has a
capacity of from twenty-five to thirty carloads.
It is the first and only public chittem bark
warf house built in the northwest The foun
dation and basement are made of concrete, the
superstructure is covered on the outside with
heavy galvanized iron, all openings are covered
with the same, thus making it practically a
fire-preof structure. The building throughout
will be cool in the summer and dry in the win
ter, and is therefore especially adapted for
thoroughly curing and preserving chittem
bark, for be it remembered this article im
proves by agethe longer you keep it the
better it gets, and the more valuable it becomes.
I The terms upon which chittem bark is re
ceived are simple and comprehensive The
bark is stored absolutely free of charge for
from one to five years, or fraction of a year.

To some this may seem strange, but if you
stop to think it over, Mr. Fry can always get
a larger offer for a carload of old bark than
you can get for smaller qpantities of uncertain
age, and therefore he is generally in a position
to pay more for your bark than any other
buyer, and still save a margin of profit for his
trouble. ,

l-'"-' OF PETROLEUM. ?
Two Huge Boilers Equipped With Burn
ers Which Have. Proven Satisfactory
in Every Way up to Present Said to
Be Cheaper and Wore Convenient.
The first experiment to have been
made in the burning of -crude on for the
purpose of generating steam or propell
ing power. in this city is now in full
swing at the plant of the Thos. Kay
Woolen Mills. The fluid has been in
use as a fuel under two huge boilers
of AvO horse power each, since last
Monday, and so far .everything has
worked like a charm. If . the use of
crude petroleum proves a success, as a
money saver over Other fuels, especial
ly wood, it is quite probable that oth
er power and manufacturing plants,
and perhaps some of the state institu-
tions, notably the insane asylum, the
officials of which institution have been
figuring upon the installation of an
oil burning plant, will adopt the system
before another year. f
Everything for the burning of oil at
the woolen mills is most conveniently
ana safely arranged. A huge r supply
tank, 12x42x6 feet in dimensions, and
with a capacity of 18,0wU Tallow of oil,
has been constructed - of iron, ;cement
and other strong and durable materials,
a distance of about 100 feet from the
buildings, four feet underground, thus
reducing the danger of an explosion
from fire or other combustible elements
to a minimum. A pipe line leads from
the tank to the railroad switch, where
uirect connection to the oil tanks on
the, cars can be made and the oil drawn
into the supply tank by 'gravitation.
The oil is pumped from the supply tank
into the engine bouse and supplied to
the burners by means of two small
steam pumps, and the petroleum Is fed
into, the furnaces by a strong pressure
of steam which converts it into a fine
spray and distributes it throughout the
fire box. The. fluid is highly - inflam
mable' and is capable of producing in
tense neat, but is easily regulated.
i nis plant has been consuming on
the average about 2000 : cords of fir
wood each year, at an average cost of
$3.25 per cord. A barrel of crude oil.
wbicb cosis out i.io delivered at the
mill, is said to equal one and a third
cords of -wood for steam , generating
purposes. If this proves to be correct
tho advantage of oil over wood can be
very readily appreciated.
The scarcity of wood as a fuel snrmlv
is becoming more apparent each year,
to upon mis account and the
consequent increase in the price of
wood fuel, that caused Mr. T. B. Kay
to install the oil burners as an experi
ment. Should crude petroleum be struck
in this valley, as the surface, indica
tions seem to point strongly to in sev
eral localities in the vicinity of this
city, the fuel problem for the Willam
ette valley and the state of Oregon
will have flbeen solved for all time to

Says He Thinks the Oil Fields of Mar

In an interview with a Portland pa
per yeeterday afternoon D. M. Watson,
the oil expert who visited the Pratuni
oil field, or that is to say, the discovery
of oil at Pratum recently, had the fol
lowing to say about oil and its uss in

be. lie has just returned from an ex
tended; trip through the California oil
regions, where "there is oil enough to
supply; the Pacific Coast for 1,000
years," in his opinion.
"The Standard Oil Company is now
selling; crude oil in San Francisco at a
rate equaling 60 cents a ton for coal,"
he said, "and this already has a dis
eouraging effect on coal development,
both in California and, Alaska. Fac

"I think we have just as good an oil

Money Advanced
On all bark stored with Mr. Fry, cash will
be advanced, if required, up to twothirds tho
value. Interest on the loan will bo charged
at the rate of eight per cent per annum. All
bark on which money is advanced must be in
sured at the expense of the owner. :'
Special Instructions
Shipments of bark must consist of a mer
chantable quality, packed in strong sacks, se
curely sewed, and on the end of each sack
place '"the initials of the owner, also name of
post office. Failure to do this will necessitate
a charge for same, as no shipment can be stored
without being properly marked for recognition.
. Nearly three carloads have already been
received for storage, and a large amount of
space is engaged.
Parties contemplating holding. their bark for
higher prices and storing, are requested to
make early application. !
