Fruit Grower. Will fruit growers let us consult our interests? I am of the opinion that tho best thing we can do is to throw our mites together and see if we can't get a canning factory started;n Oregon. By looking around we see acres and acres of cheap fruit land lying in brush and weeds. Wo also see a large number "f girls and boys who would like to earn a few dollars picking fruit. It would bo a healthful avocation nnd a good schooling I . T -. 1 1 tor tliem. .w.nciBura h wo naa a canning factory in our town there would raun.v wfiere nt prc80nt thore ; DOtone. . factory is just what wo want, for wo then havo a market forour fruit and tlio people who ouy canneti iruu couio ge. u at home, without sending to California for it as they have to do now, for wo can raise just us nico and just as good fruit here as t!iy do there. And it can ho put up in ns g'jod ;iiaio hero as our wnstrn friends can do it. Now I would like for Eomo ono who knows something about such things to give us some figures on this matter, and see if we cant form n stock company and got something started that will be of interest to tho wholo community. I see by the last issue of the Skitinkj. that a canning factory is pptiken of and for us to think of it. Let us do moro, let us givo tho ball a hoist nnd sie if any body can use the b.d. Now with all duo respect, ar.il best wishes for the tuoor line project, wa would say that if it is a paying invest ment tho" factory would pay equally well. So let us havo the two and see if old Holt will not loom up as it never has lwfom. All you who axe intomsteU speak out and let us see what can be done.
