Tho Kansas City Star speaking of
"Beverly" has this to say:
"George Barr McCutcheon's ro
mantic novel 'Beverly of Graustark'
has been deservedly popular. Its
inspiration was no doubt duo to the
success achieved by Anthony Hope's
'Prisoners of Zenda,' but thero Is
this to be said .first, it is not so much
a copy as an adaptation. The scene
is laid in no historic environment,
although tho surroundings lend
themselves easily to that method of
treatment. In 'Beverly of Graus
tark' we are led into an Ideal world
which for its fullness of human In

Tho undersigned was for threo years President of the Salem Commercial Club and for three years Presi
dent of tho Willamette Valley Development League.

Facts of Production which has proven tho best advertising matter ever gotten up to bring Homeseekers to
Tom Richardson made the statement publicly at Saiem that the Ono Thousand Facts had brought one
thousand families to Western Oregon within ono year after it was printed.
Tho Southern Pacific publicity department printed the One Thousand Facts in folder form and circu
lated thousands of them. Tho time has come to get up a new collection of facts In a larger scale and cover
the whole state, and convince the world that this is the richest and most productive state in tho union.
HELP DEVELOP OREGON BY SENDING US ONE OR MORE FACTS.
Your name has been sent us as one of the successful producers of your section of the state, and I
want you to take the trouble to stnd me a brief statement of fact on sonic lino of production. Whatever
it is, we want the amount produced, and what it sold for in the market. That simple statement answers
thousands of questions from people who are coming to Oregon, and your neighborhood will get the full benefit
from publishing tho statement and the name and postoffipe of the producer, as Is proposed to do in each case,
and let th,e facts speak for themselves.
Hero are given a few specimen statements that have been published for the past two, years, and have
done the business of settling up this part of the state. These are to show how we want the statement
made Jn the most concise manner, proving what the soil will produce and that we have markets for our prod
ucts, and that the cultivation of the soil and raising stock and poultry pays:
