May 1.—It develops that _ . , , . . .. . _ the Boosters club which has proven such a potent factor in the uccom plishment of things worth while for the town the past month has In no measure spent its enthusiasm or re sourcefulness in doing things. To the contrary, its program for future work embraces some notable Improvements for the town. For a number of years, there has been a realization of the great need of a public park, and lead ers of the club have come to a deter mination to secure one before property becomes so high that it will be diffi cult to buy the land for one. Conse quently, there is a disposition to pur chase the block east of the post office owned by the public school and park it for that purpose in the immediate future. Plans are also already outlined for beautifying the park in a thor oughly modern way. Phases of the contemplated beautifying involve the planting of shade trees, the planting of various flowers, the installment of fountains, and the construction of cement walks diagonally across the park. Early action along these lines is contemplated. Stock and hay shipments continue to be made from this place with about the same regularity and of the same proportion . Seldom a day passes with out a carload of hay going out or a carload or more of cattle cr hogs. A carlad of hay went out Saturday and last, week a number of cars of hogs were shipped. Few, If any, sections of the state excel this as a stock and grain raising section, and the wonder ful prosperity of the farmers of the country tributary to this place and up on which It draws for Its trade Is to be attributed to the fact that these two industries constitute the basis of its vast volume of business which has be come a matter of statewide comment. Throughout its extent, farmers are in an easy financial condition. The great improvements being made upon farms and the • ast number of silos to be observed confirm the Doasted pros perity and progress of the entire country. the FORM A SETTLEMENT Middleton, May 1.—With an Influx of Swedish immigrants locating in «ts surrounding country and assuring the settlement of all Its fertile tributary country and the enlargement of Its trade territory, there is a basis for the belief so prevalent in business circles here that the outlook for the future of the town, of business are involved, Is highly en couraging.

A number of Swedish Immigrants have but recently arrived are seeking houses and contemplate locating in the far as growth and increase ,'ho surrounding country. Efforts are still under way for se curing the proposed cheese factory and those directing the efforts are hopeful of securing the Industry. There appears to be a general realization of the bene fits the town would derive from Its op eration. The dairying industry Is al ready one of proportions here and can be so developed that It will bring no small amount of money Into local cir culation, which of course would give a strong impetus to local trade. It would mean ready money for the farmers of the adjacent country and would tend to Htimulate business generally. As an in ducement and encouragement for the establishment of the Industry, the Mid-| dleton Fruit Product company, through Its manager, J. M. Stark, has offered free use of one of Its buildings for one year to the promoters of the Industry, an action which is being highly com mended. The local comnv'sion company Is already doing an excellent business, it shipped out a carload of cattle and hogs to Portland yesterday.
