express "packages," each consisting
of a little negro boy, recently passed
through Denver en route from To

Skaggs, eight years old. was package
No. 1, while his brother. lester, six
years old. was package No. 2.
Their mother, who resides in To
peka. decided to send them to their
father who Is living in Ogden. She
decided to forward thera by express
and, since the company accepts an
imals of all kinds for transportation.
the officials decided that the boys
could be accepted.
The company suspended one rule
governing the shipment of live ani
mals, however, which undoubtedly
added much to the boys' comfort
That rule requires the crating of all
animals sent by express. ;
The boys, though, saw to it that
another rule, which provides that an
imals must be fed at all junction
points and wherever else It may be
necessary was not suspended.

Two Salem Women Involved
in Automobile Collision
Automobiles driven by Mrs. George
Waters and Miss Blanch Stevenson
were badly damaged yesterday when
they crashed together at the inter
section of Court and Summer streets.
Mrs. Waters was driving cast on
Court street and signaled to turn
north on Summer street when a man
named Ferguson, driving an auto
mobile bearing dealers' license No.
554-B. came up behind her, and it is
said, ran on past her. Miss Steven

direct automobile tourists to the
state fair grounds as a camping place

their way to the new tourist camping
grounds at Church and Oak streets.
So popular are the new grounds be
coming that many of the campers
are prolonging their stay in Salem
and at least three farms have been
sold in Marion county as a result of
the sojourn of the visitors.
