HIRE IS A "FLU" SUGGESTION FOR SALEM

Jn Portland, before the present visitation of the same or something
else, the United States Government sent an expert to that city to
study the evasive thing.
1 Through the recommendation of this expert, or some one else,
while he was there, i the city of Portland for a time enforced very
itnctly the ordinance against spitting on the sidewalks
V And flushed the, streets with water very often.
The disease soon died out.
Salem has a similar ordinance against, spitting on the sidewalks.
, There ts plenty; of water.
And the fire department has plenty of hose.
A man now living in Salem, who was a resident of Portland
during the former epidemic, believes it is well worth while to try
It would cost nothing, or very little.
Perhaps a few drenching rain storms would-serve as well.
But we cannot be sure of their coming: and we have the water
and the facilities for applying it
And we have a very efficient police force that could enforce
strictly the ordinance against spitting on the sidewalks,

I PASTY POLITICAL ETHICS
In order for oar brains and Tianris to accomplish the most
in the least uossible time, we must all be able to, make use of
our eyes to the fullest capacity to see everything clearly and
without encumbrance or waste of time.
Efficiency has no patience with the wearer of two pairs of
glasses which require constant shifting to see near or far objects
as the case may be.
It does not recognize the wearing of reading glasses which
have to be continually removed and replaced.
It casts aside the old-style bifocals which necessitate fre
quent repair and which blur the eyes with seams or humps.
It maintains that, when you need double vision glasses, the
only way to completely overcome these difficulties and to con
serve your eyesight, is to wear Kryptok Glasses.
Kryptoks have the necessary powers for perfect near and far
sight invisibly combined in one pair of solid crystal-clear lenses
absolutely smopth to the finger's touch.
Because of the total absence of seams jar humps, Kryptoks
have the appearance of being single vision. This feature over
comes the dread that many people have of wearing bifocals.
Our Kryptok lenses as well as our other lenses are ground
in our own plant, the only lense grinding plant in Salem,
P. S. Mr. Howard E. Misener, the best lense grinder and
shop man on the Pacific coast is foreman of our plant. v

the proposition Is ridiculous, and
while it may have been well enough
to teach it In the dim and distant
past, we ought to be ashamed of
ourselves for sticking to the "super
stition," If our own idea or belief of the
origin of woman is a superstition.
then it ts Quite as good a superstition
as other people have. For ours Is
not the only theory of the origin
of woman. Many other people have
many other theories or superstitions.

WHO HAS SERA-ED T
More and more we are coming to
the realization that we cannot meas
ure success by the yardstick of dol
lars, but rather by the service we
have rendered our fellows. Edgar
Guest sums up the whole question in
the following lines:
He has not served who gathers gold.
Nor has he served whose life is told
In selfish battles he has won.
Or deeds of skill that he has done.
But he has served who now and then
Has helped along his fellow men.
This old world needs more men to
day; Red-blooded men along life's way.
With cheerful smiles and helping
And with the faith that understands
The beauty of the simple deed
Which serves another's hour of need.
Strong men to stand beside the weak.
Kind men to hear what others speak.
True men to keep our country's laws
And guard its honor and Its cause:
Men who will bravely play life's
Nor ask rewards of gold or fame.
Teach me to do the best I can
To help and cheer our fellow man;
Teach me to lose my selfish need
And glory in the larger deed
Which smooths the road and rights
For all who chance to come my way.

His life he lived for others.
This prophet of the free.
To build a world of brothers.
In leagues of liberty;
As sweet as the soul of Sunland
Was the radiant heart of him;
This mighty man all God-planned
When Freedom's skies were dim.
He pleaded with seceders.
When war's red thunder rolled.
The gentlest of leaders
Back to the waiting fold;
But he was a mighty foeman.
When Wrong began the fight.
Yet tender as a woman-
This champion of right.
He planted fragrant roses.
