Lange; In afternoon at 8 o'elook "tjjfe "u! chlldreiiB festival will take "Will you take a ride ?" said Mr. J. H. Albert, cashier of the Capital National bank, as ho drove up to the JouitNAL ofllce, on his way home, last evening. As the writer had for some time intended to go and see the many improvements iu tho University addition to Salem, the offer was accepted without parley. Suftlclcnt that escapes the personal observation of many of our readers is deemed worthy of a place in this paper that is designed to Keep uie puonc posieu on tno pro gress of the city and its surroudiugs. The addition is 40 acres in extent, on the southeast of town, reaching from Summer street, where the long bridge creases the creek on the west, to 12th street, almost to the railroad depot, on the east, and from Mill jstrect on the north to tho county road that runs from the rail road past tlie deaf mute school on tho south. On account of the creek and the trees it looks like a retired suburb, while it is really a part of town, though so situated as to be virtually rural. A year ago there was not a house upon it with the exception of some of those fronting on Mill street. Now there are a number. Mr. Albert's fine house was moved from the corner of Court and Summer, where Mr. Krausse's handsome villa is now helm built. Ho has raised it, put a basement with a heater under it, with a register and ventilator in each room, re arranged and improved the interior and tastefully repainted tho exterior. His garden and orchard arc going to bo very choice. In various por tions he has put out GOO fruit trees. In a finely sheltered spot near the house can be seen growing a number of trees from California. One s an orange tree of the Mediterranean sweet, a thornless variety that the writer has seen Rearing ripe fruit In California when only two "years old from the bud. If tills weathers the winter ft will probably have, oranges on It next year. Tl;en tuoro are Epgljsh walnut, fig, olive, Japan persimmon, nlctarlne, almond, apricot, pomegranate, peach, plum and prune trees making a wonder fully vigorous growth, notwith standing that most were planted in the gravel wjthout. even ploughing the land. The fruit on such land is sure to be very sweet. One of the bradshaw yearling plum trees, this first season, bore two well developed specimens of fruit. A large collection of roses in full bloom were iu Indiana a few mouths ago. Watermelons and nnjskfnelpns nave ueen pienuiui an me season and still abound. Corn stands higher than you can reach, furnish ing "roasting ears" from early sum mer till frost shall come. Tho ground being gravely and naturally well drained is free from mud and dust, and garden conies very early. Peas were gathered on tho 9th of May, aud, where Irrigated by tho creek, others are now in bloom. Black berries arc still ripening. As water from the city works Is carried to each lot, lawns and gardens are kept fresh all through tho summer. White clover, sown on the gravel very late without any fertilizer, lias set well. The creek at this driest time of the year shows a steady ftpw being fed by never foiling springs of pure, cold water. Mr. Albert Is clearing tho creek of all brush and debris, and bringing witter from one of the springs to his house for do mestic purposes. Among the residences noted were those of Rev. J. W. Harris, A. C. Roberts, architect, (who will sell his neat, tasty home aud build on his otliem83'Xrjf.lyafjIckV Cfi'as. D. Purdy, J. G. JSvans, Josopu JBenoJt, H. A. Thomas,' A. Qllnger, Mr. dinger, Jr., Geo. Goodhue, Mr. Burke, Silas Howard", Geo. Howe, E. F. Huichlns, Bert Hatch and possibly others. Mr. T. G. Albert has replaced hte residence that was burned some time aco. bv a very cosy cottage. He has Johu Hughes in one direction, the Willamette University, after vhich the addition Is named, the state house, the court house, from the towor of which the time of day can be seen on a clear day, the churches aud the handsome residences of Ex Gov. Moody, Mrs. E. N. Cook, tho Brcyman brothers, and other con spicuous buildings. The attractive now depot ou the Oregon and Cali fornia railroad, from which trains start for Portland and tho east, and for California or Southern points, twice a day in each direction, is very accessible to all this property. As others are contemplating build ing In this addition it might bo well to mention that tho lots arc large, averaging about SOxlGO feet. That some of them are particularly eligi ble for homes, containing knolls, splendid shade trees and occasion ally the waters of the creek or a spring. Good streets are laid out through the property in various directions. Mr. Albert's prices are reasonable and he gives exceedingly liberal terms to purchasers who build ou his lots, making installments as easy as paying rent. He even assists some of them in the matter of building tho house, if desired. This is sure to bo a very desirable and popular portion of our state capital city. Go and see it. LOCAL NOTES.

It appears that Mr. Crltchelow's horse became frightened at an old stove, aud be came unmanageable, near Dr. Port's residence where the accident oc curred. The injury consists of a painful, but not necessarily danger ous llesh wound ou tho forehead, liiado by a kick from tho horse, fy will confine him to the house for several days and will almost un avoidably leave nn ugly scar.

D at present presiding elder In-tho Meth odist church of this district, has been elected editor of tho PnclilcClirlstian Advocate, tho ofllcial organ of tho denomination ou tills northwest coast, it is a responsible position of wide range, but the doctor, both by education and experience, is well able to fill it. Tho Advocate is one of our valued exchanges. Although he has been much of his tlmo away from homo on his arduous duties, tho good people of Salem will regret to have him lose his residence here. He will go to his new duties next week. His daughters will probably remain and prosecute their studies at tho university. Tho church, the tempcranco and other good causes will lose an able worker in Mrs, Harrington. May prosperity attend the doctor and his family.
