seem to be infected with this
mischievous spring spirit. ....

unlike some people "Get out' of
my way I am coming!" ' The
alders to ,my right ' prevent me
from seeelng Salem, but I can see
the hills to the left of .the town
rise boldly, silhouette-like against
an azure sky. The atntosphere la
so clear that I can plainly discern
four Isolated ' IreesTeich some' dl
tance from the other, on the very
top of one of these hills, standing
there like lonely sentinels, watch
ing but for foreign invaders; the
top line of the hills runs along
the sky in long, irregular waves.
Here a light colored farm
house; there , an , orchard ; all
abloom in a brilliant, snow white
garb are caught in the sun's
bright rays seemingly at 4east
bringing the two objects much
closer to us.. Quite a few small
clusters of tali firs are sprinkled
all over the hillside and I can even
see the roads which 1 only - look
like 1 tiny streaks from here run
in various directions. ; .
Further to the' south the coun
try gets more f rugged,- the tree
clusters now grow bigger and yet
bigger until away to my left the
whole hillside is covered with
these straight, tall, proud- firs;
and as I take a skimming glimpse
over the tree tops they resemble
an Immense blanket of velvet.
In one place -1 can even see ' a
stretch ot the Coast Range looking
curiously over the hills., if"
Along the5 toot of the hills close
to the railroad track Mlfl1 creek
lazily winds its way through a
mass of scrub trees, deep-green or
color that; look , from here as
though some one. had dropped bits
of moss roughly along the banks
of the creek. , ; '
: A dark, puffing, short-winded
monster now suddenly comes leap
ing out of the scrub and eagerly
keeps on creeping - southward,
throwing its black shadow against
nature's charming background of
emerald-green it's a Shasta Lim
ited : bonnck for 'Frisco !.
Neither smoke nor : fog, two
dreadful enemies of the erudite
Mr. Chapman at which he pokes
much, fun and wastes lots of clev
er wit,-are here today to obscure
the eye." It may be Just possible
that he has looked at these two
enemies through magnified spec
tacles and with bitterness in his
soul. ': ." ;; : i : , - ..J 5
However that may be, today the
curtain is up! 1 -But it occurs to
ny perverted mind that- the. fog
and smoke we have here tocon
tend with are as naught compar
ed to tornados.Ube extreme heat
in summer and the extreme cold
In winter of the eastern states.
And bo I - am forced to the. con-
rinalon that after ! alL these two
pyils are hot so awfully bad. V A
lot. of- course, depends ;uppn the
mental attitudei towards one3 en
rironment. - ' l .

1 I dare say no climate is perfect
all the year around. One soon
gets tired of too much sun, but
as the dark and dreary winter
months come' to a close we look
with eagerness and passionate
longing for the first glimpse of
the' warm spring sun and welcome
her as a mother welcomes' her long
lost child. . y
Being an ex-rover of the seven
seas, I have stayed in a- number
bf climates and have also had am
ple opportunity of seeing many of
the most beautiful , spots on the
old planet's, shell, and I can say
without in any way hurting my
conscience that Nature as far j as
scenery is concerned has indeed
been very kind to Oregon, and to
the Willamette valley, In particu
lar; also it has as. good -a climate
all the year around as a reasoji
able person may well find any
But some humans are' really
strange creatures for they always
want something they haven't got.
This Is especially the case with a
species we shall call, for want, of
a better . name, the : "climate
hounds." They areVoreyer prais
ing this and that perfect climate.
f'Thats where 1 ought to-be," is
their favorite saying; but "they
ire' never 'there." i l YV
f The ideal climate !s .as elusive
as the striving for ? perfection,
which, like tomorrow, ' IslilJiever
here and always coming! 'i

Walter Damrosch, responding
at a musical dinner In Pittsburgh
to the "toast, "Musicians v (Should

Levy, - the famous condufctor of
the old Dublin Theater Rral.

largest familes ever seen in ; Ire
land. Twelve or thirteen of his
children, ' in fact, acquired ; real
celebrity' In the world of music,

through the curtain and said:-';

heartily without interrupting the

v THE CHEAPEST LANDS ARE HERE
The cheapest lands, on earth are here in the
Salem district "
You can bay farm lands here for around $100
an acre ; less than it costs to provide for irrigation
in many projects
' Lands that are as rich as the Ifile valley.
You can bay lands Here and, by the . best
farming methods, make them pay their cost every
year ; j
And, with nut culture, you can make them
pay several times their cost in time. .
' You can make one walnut' tree as valuable as
thirty acres of land at present prices
Spread the news that we have the cheapest
lands in the world - . s
Prove it; back it up with facts .. s r
And the land hungry world will flock here and
put every idl& acre to use; will fill this district
with the densest population and the most prosper
ous on the green earth, r-

DID YOU KNOW that there is more than 100,000 acres of
land within a radius of 20 miles of Salem that, planted to
the right crops and set to the right fruits and nuts, with
diversified farming combined with dairying and poultry and
live stock breeding, and' bee keeping, .and some irrigation,
will pay in net profits the present purchase price, of the
land every year, over a period of five or ten years, and will
make a constantly increasing net annual cash return, under
good management and applied industry;, will, in fact, for the
present generation and for future generations, )e an in
creasing asset will grow in productive and selling value in
the hands of present and future holders throughout the
years; that if this could be fully realized all over the United
States and all over the world, the Salem district would soon
double its population; and in time double it again and again?

When Lord Northclif f e was In
New York he told : a- great: many
stbrlef to prove that prohibition
could never be, for the reason that
a man was too fond of drink.
"A miner," he said one day to
a group ot reporters, "met with
a serious accident. The mine doc
tor came and set his leg, sewed up
his face, and sent him home, un
conscious on a stretcher.
"The doctor called at the house
and saw the patient an hour later.
He was still unconscious. 5 1 -'
- Poor fellow! said the doctor:
'Get a shilling's worth ot brandy
and give it to him when he comes
"Attr the doctor was gone the
miner's wile said, to her little
girl: -i-:.--., .'::.i':'M:-:V- -'
' ' 'Run to the Pig and Whistle
and get six-pennyworth of brandy
for your dad.'
Then from the unconscious fig
