tho "return to' the. soil." Hill has

together and thus bring about the
happy consumation of a great idea.
It is tho function of the Salem
Board of Tradi to put these two
good things together, to help those
belated people of the east to help
themselves and thereby help our
magnificent Oregon country. And
just to illustrate how this Is being
done T want to digress Into some
statements of fact which will prove
that our community is doing its full
part in th's haiipy transition.
To start with the past year has
seen several thousand good. Indus
trious families come Into our com
munity. They aiv home builders.
They have sought out the bes
country of which they oan learn and
they aro here doing things. This
Is a great boon to these people, and
they arv living up to ono of the
highest nosslbllities of social exist
ence. They are hclp'ng themselves
and thereby helping the people with
whom they come In contact. In
gaining their heritage they are giv
ing our community development and
prosperity which Is substantial and
To start with, these people have
brought Into our county during the
past year about $2,000,000 In in-,
vestment. Tills is a large sum, but
it is only a small matter compared
with tho inlluonce this now nccivtlon
will have on our future. They have
brought a far greater wealth In their
Intellectual and commercial side.
It Is a woaUh which will beget even
a greater wealth both for themselves
Mid for the land of their adopt'on.
To bo more speelfk" they have
brought an Increase to our schools

builders of a greater civilization
than has ever been known to the
present day. This may sound like
prophecy, and while the wise man
would avoid the risk of such indul

see It in its true light. There has

Mr. Fleming Gives His Opinion
on the Willamette Valley.
Mr. William Fleming of the Flem
ing Realty Company was asked by
this paper to give his views on this
suction of the Willamette Valley.
Mr. Fleming is a new business man
in Salem, having recently come from
Onioha, Nobr. Mr. Fleming lias en
tered the real estate business In Sa
lem andhns unbounded faith in tho
opportunities of this country.
The following short paragraph is
what ho thinks of apple raising in
this section of the country.
"I see no reason why the Willam
ette Valley should not in a reasona
bly short time hnvie as good reputa
tion in the production of apples as
tho Hood River Valley. We havo
the soil, and It has been demonstrat
ed that we can produce the quality.
The. snii1 system and organization
applied by the Hood River people
applied generally by our Willamette
Valley people will bring like success.
Tho , establishment of a fruit union
the past summer Is a very desirable
step In tho direction; and what lias
been done before our own eyes by a
limited number of apple growers
near Salem can bo multiplied a
thousand times just as woll. I feel
assured of this tho more because I
know of a Hood River apple grower
who has shown his faith In tho fu
ture of the apple Industry In our
own valley by investing here from
sale of his orchard at $S00 an ncre
(young orchnrd) at about one
fourth the price. Our valley lands
aro yot comparatively cheap. Thor
oughness, system and organization
will mako big profits In the apple

Now Located in Salem An
Excellent Article is Man
ufactured. This article Is to call the atten
tion of the Salem people to the
existence of a manufacturing Arm in
their midst which few of them
know anything about. The Ander
son Tinning and Furnaco Company
started in business here last May
and since then has been growing
slowly and steadily until now they
employ on an average of from ten
to twelve people. This firm is
equipped with modern machinery
for rolling all kinds of metal from
thin tin to boiler plate three-fourths
of an inch thick. The proprietors,
E. K. Anderson and T. Olsen, are
experienced men In the furnace and
Mr. Anderson has spent his life
installing furnaces and was former
ly in the employ of the Torrid Zone
people of Marshalltown, Iowa, tho
second largest furnace company in
the United States. His chief work
while in their employ was erecting
hot air furnaces, where he learned
the business from A to Z.
Mr. Olsen, the senior member of
the firm was foreman of tho Lenox
Machine Comnanv of Marshalltown.
Iowa; for twelve years, where he
had complete charge of the manu
facturing of steam boilers of all
kinds, and for eight years ho was
the City Boiler Inspector of Mar
shalltown. For ono year he was
United States Government Inspector
of locomotive boilers on the Panama
Canal. Such work as this thorough
ly equipped him for any kind of
boiler work and his knowledge in
this business is second to none.
When these men left Marshall
town they came to Salem and start
led In business for themselves, be
lieving Salem to be a good town in
which to locate the furnace and
boiler business. The furnaces
which they manufacture are not tho
cheap kind gotten up to sell, they
are made of heavy boiler plate with
heavy cast Iron lining and cast Iron
doors, and are gu?anteed to heat
a house to seventy degrees in zero
weather, and will last for years.
An inspection of the furnaces Is
a pleasure to the critical person as
they can see the good workmanship
and lasting quality in every point.
Strange to say the furnace costs no
more than any standard make. The
firm Is just completing a smoko
stack for the Saleni Woolen Mills.
The stack is thirty inclres in diam
eter and sixty feet high and will
weigh complete 0,000 pounds. It
is made of 3-10 inch plate steel
about three times as heavy as th.-1
ordinary stack. It is as straight as
a flagpole, without a kink in it. Mr
Olsen says he could build one a milo
high just as easy.
The firm does all kinds of heavy
blacksni'itliing. They manufacture
Invincible automobile springs and
axles, make tho "Oregon Wonder"
washing niachirje, Harvey hitching
devise and -Kurtz Prune dipper and
tray, as well as all kinds of tin
work from gutters to roofing. Their
machinery is of the most approved
pattern and of all descriptions, from
the heavy bend roll weighing S,00i
pounds, which will roll boiler-plate
from one-eighth inch to three,
fourths inches in thickness and
punches and shears to handle tho
same material down to the small
rolls and shears that roll ovj, tho
thin tin into water gutters, etc.
Salem people should bear in mind
that these new industries aro trying
to get a foothold in this locality and
when buying goods wh'ch they man
ufacture should do everything In
their power to patronize home in
dustry. Anyone who will go around
and have the details of this furnaco
explained to them can soon be con
duced that It Is a good furnace, and
in regard to the other work which
tho firm dos there is no doubt as
to its workmanship or quality. Es
timates are cheerfully furnished on
all Jobs and the patronage of Salem
peoplo Is solicited.
