"After somo preliminary exchange of views between this government
and the other powers Interested In Chinese matters, tho department of

American representatives at St. Petersburg, Toklo and Pekln: 'You will
express to the minister of foreign affairs, the earnest desire of tho gov
ernment of tho United States that, In course of the military operations,
which have begun between Russia and Japan; the neutrality of China,
and, in all ways practicable, her administrative enity, shall be respected
by both parties, and that the area of hostilities shall be localized and lim
ited as much as possible, so undue excitement and disturbances of Chi
nese people shall be prevented, and tho least possible loss to commerce
and the peaceful Intercourse of the wqrld may be avoided. Signed
At the same time all powers signatory to the Pekln protocol are noti
fied of this noto and similar action. Hay this morning said the sole pur
pose was to protect American Interests In China, and save the latter from
anarchy and ruin. He expressed regret that European diplomats should
pursue the old lino of suspicion and distrust.

Bvorybody seems to bo Interested
In tho things that succeed, and es
pecially thoso tilings In our own com
munity which provo successful. Any
body can stop in and nmko a failure,
or evon achlovo partial success, but
tho persons that tho public Is most
directly Intorostcd in, as a rulo, are
tho ones who carry an undertaking
through to a finish, and nrovoto the
world that they havo not beon mis
taken in thoir theories. There havo
been many such In and about Snlom,
but ono which most partlqularly ap
peals to tho public Just now Is a sue
cos8 achieved whoro many had sup
posod It least possible. A year ago,
whon Manager F. W. Vators, of the
Salem Abstract and Land Company,
plattod ijoarly 100 small lots, ranging
from ono to six acres, known as the
Smith Fruit Farms.many had serious
doubts about the ultlmato success of
tho' undertaking, but Manager Waters
had fully matured his plans, and wont
at tho work with a good will. Many
wore surprised to learn that in less
than a yoar tho outlro tract had beon
sold out to desirable purchasers. Much
of this property was sold nn tho In
stallment plan, and many new homos
havo beon established as a rosult of
tho move. Tho wholo plan was so
slmplo and popular, and so thorough
ly within the reach of buyers with
modest moans that It scored a bril
liant success. As a rosult of this, and
tho growing domand for moro similar
property.' Mr. Wators has plattod what
is now called tho Smith Fruit Farms
No. 2. Although this has only boen
on the market a few days, a score of
thoso lots have been sold, and tho de
mand is such that hardly a day pass
es without moro contracts bolng
boeked: for these desirable lots.
