List of Minerals
Found In Polk County
A partial list of mineral occurrences
in Oregon has been compiled in bulletin
form by tho state university, in which
eight minerals are reported as occur
ring in Polk county. All of them are
in the black sands near Falls City. The
bulletin is for free distribution and may

Chromite, magnetite, gold, inonazite,
garnet, olivine, quartz and zircon.
Chromite is the source of chromium
salts and is also used in making hard
steel and for making brick to line
smelter furnaces in some instances.
Magnetite, which occurs in the black
uds of the Pacific coast, is found i
near Falls City.
It is an ore of iron:
strongly attracted by a magnet.
Gold and monazitc, the source of
thoria, from which the Welsbach gas
mantles-are made, are two more. Gar

aro also used for abrasive purposes in
finishing wood and leather. Perfect
crystals are valuable as museum speci

is called peridot, is used as a gem.

O. W. Johnson S Co. announced to- j

cupy the room now in use by the Wool-
worth store in the I'nitcd States Na-1
tional bank building about May 15. The

be vacated by G. W. Johnson & Co., I

.. ..... 1 "
ruum in uie new Aicuilciinst building at
the corner of State and Liberty street.
G. W. Johnson & Co. is one of the
oldest established 1'inns in the city and
Mr. Johnson located iu Salem about 34
years ago, moving here from I,elianon.
The store opened for business at 141
North Commercial street, the present lo
cation, about 27 years ago. The firm
is composed of G. W. Johnson, Sr., and
his two sons, Clyde K. Johnson and
Paul V. Johnson. Another son, Oscar
M. Johnson, now deceased, was formerlv
associated with the firm but later open- j
ett up a stoic ot .his own which was sold
out to Brick Brothers.
The new store in the bunk building
will be entirely remodeled before it is
occupied by the Johnson company. There
will be two entrances, one from Com
mercial street and another from the
main lobby of tho building. Tho room
is much larger than tho present quarters
of the company and will allow the firm
to increase their stock uud also permit
a better display.
The Johnson lease on their present
store room has not yet expired and when
negotiations were on w ith Mr. Compton,
the latter asked if tho back windows
were absolutely burglar proof. Ho was
assured that they were us nearly burglar
proof as it was possible to make them
and Mr. Compton stated that he was
confident that in his present location of
Court street no burglars could enter
from the rear and that ho slept with a
feeling of security. Both stores were
burglarized the same night, two days
later, and in both cuscs tho burglars en
tered through the rear windows. The
proprietors of the respective stores
concluded that it was a stand off and
neither would boast of a burglur proof
store in the future.
