IT'S YOUK OWX STORY
..There is a beautiful theory
preached by Emmerson, that there
is one mind. common to all Indi
vidual men. ... j
"Every man Is an Inlet to the,
same and to all the same," he
Said. L - . . j
1 "He that is once admitted to
the right of reason is made a free
man of-the whole estate. ;
"What Plato has thought, he
may think: . . . j
-What'a saint has felt, he may
feel;'; - - . .. '. - - !
"yhat at any time' has befallen
ajiy.vmaji, he can understand.
"Who hath access, to1 this nnl-
versal mind is a party to all that
is or; can be done, for this is the
only and. sovereign agent."
Of the works of this mind, his
tory ;i3 the record, i
' Its genius is illustrated by the
entire series of years, months.
weeks,, days, hours, minutes, sec
onds. " '
And thus It-la said that man is
explicable by nothing less than all
his history. -
If we believe with Emerson that
there Is one. mind common to all
men. then we believe that without
hurry, without rest, .the human
spirit goes forth fnom the begin
ning to - embody every ' faculty
every - thought, - every emotion
which belongs to it. In appropriate
events. - ; -
J "Always the thought Is prior
to the fact." ' Emerson "said. - i
"All 'the facs of history pre
exist in the mind as laws.. 1 .
"Each law in turn is made by
circumstances predominant, and
the limits of nature give power to
but one at a time."
A man is the whole encyclo
pedia of facts.

And Babylon. Egypt. Creece.

Salem grows and with it come additional demands and
rcsiwnsibilities. Before the advent of the motor vehicle
.traffic, officers, to. protect pedestrians from traffic accidents
were few. Menl women and even children were quite safe
from vehicles, in crossing from one street to another or from
; one side to another of the same street. The. street cars gave
, warnings at all crossings and drivers of horse-drawn vehicles
were accustomed to turning aside or stopping, even,ib save
the life or limb of the youngster who darted, -out in front
of them or the confused grown-up who was in a hurry for
ttahome or market. But thoso days of safe and calm proce
, lure have passed away and with -them a host of luckless
' travelers who were unable to adapt themselves to the greater
i "limits of speed of the myriads of gas'driyen vehicles'which
' "2arted against them from somewhere at the crossings. "
" Motor driven vehicles are increasing every day; so is the
.number of. them driven oh Salem streets until the1 orctinarV
