For five years sbo has hud charge of

Chicago market, and by the time his
men were in the midst of the picking
thoraln commenced. It kept up to
suou t.n extcnttbat he is now compelled
to abandon shipment and dry It. He
Bays the fruit would have netted him 3
cents per pound on the tree, which
makes fruit raising very profitable.

THE ART DEPARTMENT.
There is a modest corner occupied by
the work of a member of the Art Stu
dents League of New York Miss Lena
M. Knight. As an frt illustrator In
magazine and newspaper work Miea
Knight has won an enviable distinction
by years of patient devotion. The col
lection embraces a great variety and is
worthy of a special visit. There is
more really meritorious art work shown
than ever before, probably based on the
hope that this year there would be
judges who were competent to judge
from technical standards. Another
collection by a member of the New
York Art Lesgue Is by Miss Myra Al
bert who showed eight subjects in oil,
a marine, still life, fruit and a figure.
The work is nearly all from nature and
Oregon at that, which makes it doubly
There are many individual displays,
but the largest collection of silk em
broidery is by Miss Christina Oberg, a
teacher of art needlework at Portland.
This lady has a large display of accept
ed work at the world's fair.
Another line exhibit of this work is
by Mrs. Jones, a Salem teacher in this
line of work.
Mrs. Frank Hughes has a beautiful
case of artistic china and embroidery.
Miss Mae Carpenter has also a case of
art china. Miss Ada Brevman, who
was connected with the art department
at the world's fair, has too exquisite
cases of china. Salem may well feel
proud of these exhibits.
Mrs. Wm. England has a large and
choice display of portraits and a life
study in the nude. Mrs. Geo. F. Smith
has a large collection of various land
scapes In oil, thirteen pieces making a
very rich display. A collection of
flower painting by Miss Maude Folger
Smith, of Portland, and also several
fruit pieces attracted deserved atten
tion. The ilower collection In oil was
I very much enhanced by Borne work of
Mrs. Mem Chapman, ofHalem.
Children's art work is well represent
ed by Miss Riueman's collection of an-
1 Imal crayons. It Is rather unusual to
Isee such a variety of subjects treated by
a mere child and Miss Rluemau prom
ises well to be an artist of some merit.

jtrlbutor to this department, and his
! showing this year Indicates great prog
