Not sufficiently noticed during last
week's sensations has been Idaho's
return to the old convention system
of making parly nominations. Possi
bly a political reaction has started
which will spread far before it is
stopped. Conservative politicians In
other states are not likely to ignore
what has happened in Idaho after
ten years of expedience with the di
rect nomination primary system.

"Senators Flay President." And so
the story of politics runs. This "flay

It is said that the ex-kalser dreads

; The names of the men who are attempting to block the formation
of the proposed League of Nations will be forgotten.
'" History will preserve the names of the outstanding proponents of
this great instrument of advancement.
sSuch was the rule long before Jushua and Caleb pleaded with the
Children of Israel to proceed into the Promised Land, while the
unfaithful ten "practical" spies in their craven report advised them
to go back into the darkness of Egyptian slavery.
There wa a man who once dreamed that he could make a machine
that would carry him upon the upper winds. "Practical" men
laughed at him. There was another man who dreamed that he
would replace the ancient sails of the Phoenician on the ships at
sea with steam engines and men laughed at him. And there was
still another man who dreamed that he would mend the shattered
bones of a broken human body and make it whole again. There were
men who also laughed at him. .
More than all these, there walked once upon the dusty roads of
(Jalilee a Man who dreamed that He would become the Prince of
Pface); that He would make all men brothers; that He would speak
the word that would put forever an end to wars.
Him they crucified upon the.Tree of Calvary; in strident laughter
soldiers divided His poor garment among .them with the edges of
their swords; the Pharisee scoffed at Him and challenged Him to
loose the nails from His feet and hands and to come down from
the cross on which He hung.
fiver and ever has it been like that since and before' the sons of
'Abraham disputed with their neighbors for a pasture for their
flocks. The world has never been so small that, it ?ould not make
room for the doubters and the scoffers. f
But, thank God, it has also never been, so large that it could lose
-Vght of those whose faith was as the mountains are, whose hope
was as the sun in heaven, who never ceased to try to make possible
that which others said could never come to pass. ! Shall we not
number ourselves among them?. ' f
How blind indeed must be the man who contend that any great
ideal is impossible of realization! Is not the world today incom
parably a better world than it ever was before?
There was a time when poor old witless women were burned as
witches; a time when men and women were bound to stakes and
consumed in fire, for their religious beliefs or finbeliefs- when
women were chattels ; when stone and wooden gods were worshiped ;
when a man could be thrown into a foul prison because he was too
poor to pay a debt of money or other tribute ; when men and women
and little children, even in "free America, were slaves four
millions of them. ",
r. Have not all these squalid miseries that afflicted the mind's and
bodies of men passed? And is not war the amalgamation and the
concentration of these miseries, all put togetheV, every one?
1 Wherefore, even as those who have gone befofe have approached
their ideals, let us now at least approach this ideal of a League of
"'Nations. '
I Let us be willing to try it, no matter what the doubt may be as
to its success. Give it a chancel Let whoever will point out that it
is an ideal that has been approached and tried in the past only to
fall and fail. So also have other ideals, that are now realities, fallen
and failed many and many a time.
t. If it shall, somehow, transpire that those who ODDOse the forma
tion of the League of Nations shall be able to defeat its realization,
meir victory, unholy as it would be, could not be lasting. If our
generation fails to tying ft about, be sure that another generation in
days to come will succeed in doing what we now may fail to do.
But shall we not strive and keen on striviner?
The man who feels himself under no obligations to the past,and
who considers that he has no responsibility to the future, is a man
who is wholly outside of the realm of sensible discussion. That kind
of a man is born, lives his life and goes down to death as though
he had not lived at all. He is not counted.
What we must do in this grave and crucial hour of history, is to
stand back of the ideal of the League of Nations for teace with all
our hearts and souls. We must approach that ideal with the utmost
ardor and in the liveliest spirit of hope. ,
We must answer to the spirits of the dead : we must render an
account to the generations yet unborn. Also, we have ourselves to
think of in our own day and generation. . "
The League of Nations is not a question of persons or parties in
any particular country. It is a question that concerns the whole
wona and an the races that dwell therein.
Five farmers' organizations the
national grange and patrons of hus
bandry, the farmers' national coun
cil, the national federation of glean
ers and,' the society of equity and
non-partisan league have indorsed
the league of nations, and they are
as near the people as the senate is.
Thus far it appears that the only
execution among American soldiers
was that of the man in France who
was executed for. offense, against a
French child. And he was drunk
when he committed the crime.
Cocoanut Oil Fine
For Washing Hair
The record of the American sol
dier speaks for itself. No matter
what part of the world he is called
to. ba it Cuba, the Philippines,
France or Germany, be does his du
ty and fears no foe. He is entitled
to the praise of his countrymen and
it is accorded him in the highest
measure. But what he likes best of
all is the approval 0 his command
ing officers. Now General Pershing,
commander of the American expe
dition to France, fe no orator. He
leaves oratory to Hearst's friend.
Senator Reed, and others like him.
But the general can rise to the oc
casion when it comerto speaking his
mind about the American soldier.
This Is what be said in Paris at
a recent luncheon given by the Amer
ican Club:
"Whether keeping lonely vig
il In the trenches, whether at
tacking machine-gun nests or
performing the drudgery of the
rear Vr supplying the front line,
each man has done his duty and
be has felt be bad behind him
the support of the whole coun
try. By bis courage, his In
domitable will, his splendid or-
Sanitation and bis tenacity the
American soldier turned Im-
pending defeat Into overwhelm
ing victory. I drink to the Amer
ican soldier, than whom there
is no better in the world today."
The lAme:icaa soldier tfully de
serves that acknowledgment of bis
prowess and his devotion. He only
has two equals, and they are the
American marine and the American
sailor. The three of them together
are unconquerable.

Simply mois'en Iour hair with
water and rub it In. One or two
teaspoonfuls will make an abund

cleanses the hair and scalp thorough

removes every particle of dust. dirt,
dandruff and excesive oil. The hair
dries quickly and evenly, and It
leaves it fine and silky, bright, fluf

You can get mulsified cocoanut oil

tertained after their concert, at the
Salem Commercial club rooms, the
other night, a lot of Salem men and
women were there talking French
to the guests, like Parisians. Who.
before that, knew Salem had so
many people w h j can read and speak
the French language? The Bits for
Breakfast man would suggest that
otber occasions might appropriately
be made for the meeting of these
French speaking people for mutual
exchanges and benefits; especially
in Tiew of our boy from "over

tinue their study of. the language
of diplomacy.- What do you say?
It was Mr. Arthur Balfour who

It's Grandmother's Recipe to Tirfng
Back Color and Lustre to Hair.
That beautiful, even shade of
dark, glossy hair can only be had
by brewing a mlx'ure of Sage Tea
and Sulphur. Your hair is your
charm. It makes or mars ths face.
When It fades, turns gray or streak
ed, just an application or two o?
Sage and Sulphur enhances its ap
pearance a hundredfold.
Don't bother to prepare the mix
ture; you can get this famous old
reel pa improved by the addition of
other ingredien's at a small cost, all
ready for use. It is called Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Compound. This
can always be depended upon to
bring back the natural color and lus
tre of your hair.
Everybody uses "Wyeth's Sage
and Sulphur Compound now because
it darkens so naturally and evenly
that nobody can tell it has been ap
plied. Yon simply dampen a sponge
or soft brush, with it and draw this
through .he hair, taking one small
strand at a time; by morning the
gray hair lias dlsappeaed, and af
ter another application It becomes
beautifully dark and appeal; glossy
and lustrous.' "
