I Salem's jfreatdst Asset is Willamette University and the
other educational institutions thai have come because Wil
lamette 'University was f here.- and the splendid system -of
publfc schools. - ":' ' r !
Willafnette University is greater andf richer, now than
ever -before. It has become a million dollar school. James J.
Hitty the empire .builder, said, when he gave $50,000. to the
endowment f un'd 6f Villarhette University, that any educa
tional institution Vih5 a $300,000 endowment; fund would
live -forever and -'so Tie helped to make it possible for, Wil
lamette 'University to have a $300,000 endowment fund, in
order to give it life everlasting i ' j
But, since that time,-there have been large additions to
the endowment f un6f 'this institution, until it nowlms more
than double $300000 in its endowment fund,' with-nany
more bequests that are already in Course of being arranged
And, with its grounds and buildings and equipments, it
is more than a million dollar school. , f ; .
f But it willsbcm be :a twd, million dollar school, for the
General 'Education ('Board; founded by Rockefeller, has offi
cially signed and scaled and delivered its offerjof $350,000,
provided $650,000 be added by .friends of the institution, to
make up a full million dollkrs more 6f endowment funds; and
arrangements are now under way to begin the great work of
securing pledges for the additional $650,000. That this will
be successful, in due time, goes without saying-f
VAjnd when Willamette University becomes a two million
dollaV -institution, this will be only ajbeginning of its greater
future, for with "schools as with institutions, "to him that
hath : shall be giveti." Greatness attracts greater greatness.
Men who give large sums or small amounts to schools like to
assured that .theit giving .will be enduring; and they like
to know that their Denefactions will render useful service.
The Salem district has also several Catholic schools of
prominence, including Mt. Angel College and Mt.1 Angel Acad
emy, making a Catholic educational center, of such magnitude

Advertising, if you use it properly, is an infallible sentinel for
ycri. It guards you against fraud and inferiority. It protects you
against rnaldrig unwise andf dffatisfaqtory purchases.
Merchants and manufacturers who advertise most give full
value because.they have good names to protect The makers of well
known products and the stores that sell these products often value
the names at millions of dollars. They cannot afford to jeopardize
the worth of these names hy selling any but good goods of full
measure and fair price.
So. you can bank on this. AdcertiHed goods' must be as adver
tised. That is why it pays to deal with advertisersan d to buy ad
vertised products. I v i i
as to begin to compare favorably with any In the whole of
the United States. ? j " j
, The Salem district has also the Oregon State Normal
school at "Monmouth. - '"
There is a wonderful growth going on, too, in the music
schools of Salem. The Capital City is becoming a great
music center, attracting students from a wide territory and
destined, at the present rate of growth, to make a mark in
this field that will render Salem famous all over the coun
try. Too much cannot be said of the importance of this new
growth of Salem as an educational center.
This is all good business. It means wealth and culture
It means training that will spread the fame of Salem and
bring added wealth. Salem has a good public school system.
But it will pay her people td make it a better system; to
provide the means necessary and to insist upon the highest
possible standards in this line. The public school system is
the foundation of our educational greatness. We cannot af
ford to have this weak. We can afford to make it strong
as a part of the scheme; for seeking wider and more favor
able' attention to Salem as an educational and a cultural cen
ter, in the development of which we have made splendid pro
gress, and in the further growth of which lies our surest pos
sibilities for the building here of a big and rich and substan
tial city.-'-; - S M:;
(So much for; the situation and the sentiment and the
hrnnhfw of two veara airo. Well, the endowment fund of a
million dollars for Willamette University was raised; with
over $250,000 on top of it for new, buildings and equipment
and other purposes. And the people of the Salem school dis
trict, a few months ago, voted $500,000 for additional build
ings and equipment. : So Willamette University is now more
than a two million dollar school; and on the way to peing
a ten million dollar school. And the people of Salem llrave
shown in subscribing most liberally to the Willamette! Uni
versity funds, and in voting public school bonds, and in other
wavs. that they are fully aware of the advantages to Salem
of remaining an educational
more so. There is another thing not usually mentioned in
this connection; several things.; It is the fact-that the State
schools for the deaf, for the blind, for the feeble minded, for
delinquent boys, for delinquent girls, are all located in Sa
lem. Also, the Salem United .States Indian Training School
is the largest institution of its grade in the United States,
approaching the 1000 mark in attendance. It is probably the
largest Indian school of; any grade in the United States.)

now is an ideal fishing bait.. In
the river bottoms are found goK
den shiners, a minnow with a
small head and a body nearly an
inch in length. There are also
surface feeding minnows called
killifishes. On the eastern and
southern coasts, the '-K common
minnow is the mummichog.

Mr. Foster was a man of ac
tion. He wasted iin tlma ft.
liminarip.s but immediately rang
Ao uvu ior nis secretary. He
had decided that, she must be a
spy. But the secretary looked as
urpnsea as ne had at the five
mysterious words . on the back
of her last typed letter. "No,
sir," she denied. "I never saw
them before. Oh, where could
they have come from? They
frighten me. Do you' suppose
something dreadful Is going "to
happen and this is a warning?"
It was plain, to be seen she was
worried, but not fn the way Mr.
Foster had thought she would" beV
"If she's not Innocent, she's a
mighty good 'actress," he thought
as he handed her the letter to re-"

flew open in surprise. Charles

that he was making some head
