An Entertainment Literary Note.
An Enjoyable ArTilr.
The numerous friends of thu
Woman's Relief Corps of Salem
bad a very enj jyublc time at their
hull last evening. The ladles had
prepared quite a treat In the Bhape
of a literary, musical and culinary
feast. About 7:30 o'clock the meet
ing was called to order, and all join
ed in singing their favorite hymn
America. The president then stated
the objects and aims of the order,
and extended the invitation to the
ladies of Salem to unite themselves
with the order. The following
program was then rendered with
much credit to each and every per
former taking part :
Vocal Solo Mr. Kplcr
JteciUition MissO. .Matthews
Piauo Solo Nettie Southwiek
Vocal " L. M.l'arvin
Jlccitatlon Vera Jiyure

Jtecitation Mary Vandcrsol
Vocal Solo h. McKinney
Refreshments by thu ladies of the
Corps, and after which games, pleus
aut converse, and pop corn balls,
kept all busy until the hour of ad
journment came. The patriotic
ladles of the order are entitled ton
world of credit, not only for the
charities they disperse to the old,
infirm and needy but also for the
social treats they have furnished and
propose furnishing the old and
young of Salem. Their entertain
ment last evening was a "dime
sociable," and the receipts were very
creditable, and yet, many others
might have enjoyed themselves for
nn hour or two, with profit to them
selves and given a pleasant word
and ten cents in n good cause.

Tlie I'runiotiitii ur Horticulture.
A bill Is being prepared by the
State Horticultural society for pre
sentation to tiio coming legislature,
which looks to the promotion of
horticulture in Oregon. It is pro
posed to divide thu state into sis
districts. Salem will be of the
hccoihI district, which will embrace
the counties of Marlon, Polk, Ben
ton, Linn and Lane.
On Tuesday the directors of the
Salem Street Railway Co. will open
and consider the bids for tho con
struction of the line, which Is now
definitely located. Beginning near
the Statu Insurance building on
Commercial street, it will continue
down the center otthat street to the
railroad track near the freight depot.
From Commercial street It will be
extended up State as far as the rail
road track, thence up Twelfth street
to the O. & C. passenger depot.
Tills will constitute one nillu and
one-third, neaily half of which will
bo planked, while the balance will
bo well graveled. There will be
four switches along the route, and
the rails used will bo the regular
0tb T" rails.
The present equipment of the
line will consist of three double-end,
closed horse cars, with a platform
at each end and a seating capacity
It is proposed to have the lino in
operation to the depot by the first of
January next. The extensions will
not be made until next season, the
object now being to have only the
most needed portion of the line in
operation by tho convening of tho
Street cars for Salem promise to
usher in a new era of prosperity.

pectnntly noted the twittering of
What follows Is taken from the
current Issue of 11 Portland paper:
Marion is not n large county in area
but it is one of the best settled and
most productive counties of the
state. The total area of the county
is about 000,000 acres, which in
cludes timber, farming and grazing
lands. Tho best farming lands in
the state are located in this county.
These lands are situated In the
western portions where there is a
strip of good farming land thirty
six miles long and fifteen miles
wide. In this tract are about 350,
There is much unsurveyed land
that is now open to settlement.
This land is situated in the foothills
of tho Cascade mountains and on
the higher elevations of this range.
Hero there Is much good farming
land that only needs the develop
ment work of time to bring to a
high state of cultivation. In this
part Is ulso found some of the finest
timber land of the state.
The average width of the Wil
lamette where Its waters touch tho
soil of this county is about 200 yards.
Boats reach all portions of county
bordering on this stream at nearly
nil seasons of the year and this line
of transportation will for all lime
assure the farmer of Marion county
cheap shipping rates for his pro
ducts. Last year about 220 acres of laud
were planted In hops and the aver
age yield per aero was about 1200
pounds. Tho ruling price of hops
last season was 12 cents per pound,
which gave to the producer a gross
revenue of $200 per acre or a total
revenue for this hop crop of 31,GS0.
Hops this year are wortli nearly
twice as much and have proved
during the year 188S one of the best
crops raised by the farmers of the
Marion county is peculiarly
adapted t.' the raising of stock.
There Is not much blooded stock in
the county and stock raising is one
of the main industries of the county.
The maximum price of any fann
ing luud that Is on the market to
day is $100 per acre. Good farming
land in the country can bo bought,
for fioni $15 to 5100 an acre. Unim
proved land is on the market at
from $0 to $15 per acre. Timber
lands in the county can be bought
In most cat-es, at government
prices and there is much land lu
the mountain sections of thg county
that Is still open to settlement, under
tho government pre-emption laws.
S line of this land a tew years hence
will bo very valuable for the timber
alone that is on it. There is much
o'' the land of the county that is
well adapted to fruit growing. Some
of the best fruit furuis in the state
are located lu this county and much
win bo done here In the way of suc
cessful fruit growing. Much of the
rolling tracts of the county nro
tho best ndapted to the general
purposes of fruit growing and the
lalslng of grain. The level tracts of
the valley nro not as good fruit hinds
as the rolling portions, unless the
lands are re-clalmed by n thorough
system of siib-drainin'. Much
good can bo accomplished In the
valley by tiling, and it Is hoped
Hint the farmers of this section will
go towork In earnest in this direction.
