Hereby pVrcslrV we the lore of God, because He laid down His
life for us; and we-ought to lay down our lires for the brethren. But
whoso hath this world's goods, and seeth his brother have need, and
shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love
of Cod .in him? First John 3:16-17. y '
This is not a paid itemv The company, owning the Salem
water works knows nothing about it- j
- It is printed in performance of a public duty.
There was an item in a newspaper yesterday telling of
the finding of the body of an insane patient at the Colony
farm, operated by the state; the body having evidently
floated 'aWnjth'e river several miles and "lodged against a
log near : the 'north tank' of the Willamette river about half
a mile above the water intake for the city supply."
The reporter probably did not intend it, but the item was
calculated to giyela'sinking feeling in the stomach of a person
using Salem watet and not being acquainted with the facts.
THe fact is, there is no "water intake" from the Willamette
river for Salem's city water supply. Nor does the item say
there is; but it infers it.
The "water intake" for the Salem water supply does not
come from the, stream of the river. It comes from wells
sunk deep into the sand bar on Minto's island, hundreds of
feet away from the river's bank during the low water period,
and filtered by many feet of sand and gravel even during
the high water periods of the rainy season.
So there is no contamination from the river's stream. The
city supply comes from. sources that are as pure as spring
water. ;
It may be added that in addition to this,, all water entering
the city mains is treated with the chlorination process,
rendering it immune from all disease germs, like those of
typhoid, etc. In Ithis respect, it is more pure than untreated
Bull Run water." Seattle, and other cities, getting water from
supposedly pure mountain sources, use the chlorine treat
ment, because in no other way can it be rendered absolutely
safe from contamination at the source, from 'dead birds, wild
an1 imals, etc.r etc ' - '
The reader may justly conclude that there is a good deal
of? bink about so-called pure mountain water, in these days
when medical science is so much more particular than it used
to be. ,
The Portland Journal of last night said:

.7 A writer in the Portland Telegram, commenting on the fact
that "We," the book of Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, had netted
him $95?OO0Jn royalties up to last week, with sales of over
190,000 copies, concludes that all merican readers are not
seeking the salacious 1
l! That the public will buy a good clean. story --The
book being still in great demand. .
The same writer says "We" is as clean as a hound's tooth ;
as clean nterature as the author ia clean living; as carefree
as "Huckleberry Finn" and as filled with romance as Colonel
Lawrence's book on. the Arabian desert fighting during the
World war. ' j
This is complimentary to the decency, of the great masy
of the American people. .
"It requires a Visit to 56,000 clover blossoms .for honey
bee to make a pound of honey," says & paragrapher in an
exchange. ' They would have to be white clover blossoms,
too, or other than those of red clover. The "bill" of the
honeybee is too short to get the honejt from red clover, in
ordinary seasons in seasons when the aphis does not work
on tha red clover blossoms and eat away the obstructions.
"The Reverend Garnett Gunier, 21 years old, is the first
woman minister to perform a marriage ceremony in Ar
kansas," says an exchange.
"If I may put it another way,"
said Helen, "I would suggest that
we ask Hermione to send Orestes
here at once. There ought to be
no possibility of another misun
derstanding in this home, and the
wise way. I think, would be for
you to talk it out with Orestes
"I won't permit him to enter
Uie house and naturally I won't
talk with him," said Memelaos.
"Then would you mind if I
talked with him? It was my sister
he killed, ind if anyone here is to
blame for the death of Pyrrhus, it
is I, who sugested bis coming.
"I don't see what there is to say
to him Helen. He'll probably
take 'the occasion to lecture you
on your behavior, or he'll point
out where I have done wrong."
"He may ask me why you didn't
help him avenge his father." said
Helen. "If he does. 111 explain
that I kept you home. If he tells
me "that I have made mistakes,
I'll admit it. and fill in any- gaps
in bis information" about my past
life. Orestes has no terrors for
me, and I'm very eager to meet
him. How soon can you get him
here. Hermione?"
"Not here. Helen !'.' said Mene
laos. x
"The whole point would be lost
If I met him anywhere else, and it
would hardly be proper for me to
be- meeting himout of my own
house, and away from your protec
tion,' Menelaos. How soon do you
think Hermione?"
"I prefer not to have him come,
since father objects."
"Quite right." said Helen,
"but your father has withdrawn
his objection."
"I didn't know that I did."
"I beg your pardon! I thought
you agreed it was more discreet
for me to see him here than alone
and away from the house,"
"Oh. yes, in that eense." said
"Well, then, how soon do you
think, Hermione?"
"I don't want him to come, mo
ther. I'm not sure what you would
do to him." .'V
"My dear child, he's .entirely
safe. My word of honor, 'nothing
will happen to him here."
"I don't know what you would
cay to him. and I don't want bim
to see you," said Hermione. "He's
perfectly happy now or would be
If it were not for his private mis
fortunes." '
"You'd be wise to send him.-
said Menelaos. "It will come to the
same thing in the end. Your moth
er wants to see him. I assure you
I shan't let him stay long, and we
shan't do him any harm." 'i
." Let me know when he's corn
Ink." said Eteoneus, "and I'll tell
the new gate-keeper to turn his
back and pretend not to -notice
him. You couldn't give a man like
that a formal hospitality." .
"What's this about a new gate
keeper?", said Heln" : V J
"Eteoneus, J? leaving us, said
Menelaos. i - -
"Couldn't you Wtay with usEt
eoneus?"" ald Helen: You are
my oldest friends here you .open
ed the "door of this house when I
entered as avbrlde."
'And when you returned from
Troy," said Eteoneus.; "There's
nothing- more I ran do for you, and
it's time I left." v ; ' .. !
Yoa musn't ' leave-i-weirhave
to talk it over," said Helen. 'Your
decision doesn't seem final to me.
"You'll stay, all -right," ., said
Menelaos. "I forsee the. end.
' "My decision Is quite final. Hel
en, and I'd rather not discuss it
at all." - - s , .
'"I'm sorry," said Helen.; "but
yon know best. You will come In
to say good-bye to me before you
go, won't you?" i. ; :j
"I certainly will." said Etepne
us. "That does for -youV old5 mant"
said Menelaos. "And you're going
to end Orestes ii" tomorrow, Is
really not wanted here, and fine
speeches won't alter the fact."
"Go ahead, then, and leave!"
said Menelaos. "Why are yon ban
ging 'round to tell us, once in so
often, you don't approve of us?"
"Menelaos! Menelaos!" said
Helen. "I don't want Hermione to
go until she has promised to send
her husband to see us. If she will
do that, I rather think we can
some day understand one another
again all of us. If Hermione
loves Orestes so desperately, there
must be good in him I knew noth
ing about. I should like to admit
my error, If it is one; I'd like to
see for myself."
"He is a splendid man you
couldn't help admiring him. If
you knew what he really Is. The
trouble with you and father was
that you didn't know him. and you
didn't want to."
"Of course we wanted to!" said
Menelaos. "We told you to invite
him for a visit, but you couldn't
find him. It wasn't our fault that
you didn't know where he was!"
"It wasn't Hermionet's fault
either." said Helen. "The fact la
as you said, daughter we don't
know Orestes. Will you ask him to
come tomorrow?"
"I'll give him the invitation."
said Hermione. "I never know
what he has to do.".
"It was good of you to come.
Orestes." said Helen.
"I'd like to say. but I can't, that
I'm' glad to come." said Orestes,
You have every reason to hate me;
I dreaded to meet you."
"I don't hate you." said Helen,
"and on your part I hope there Is
no occasion for dread. I should
like to be friends with my daugh
ter's husband: ghat's the whol
reason why I asked you to come."
"You didn't want me to marry
Hermione," said Orestes.
"I did not."
"You wanted her to marry pyr
rhus." "I did."
"Then I'm not convinced of thi
sudden friendship."
"My dear Orestes... I always
knew r should be on good terms
with my son-in-law, when once he
was selected. The friendship .isn't
sudden-2-tbe marriage 'was.''
"I feel like a hypocrite to ac
cept your hospitality." said Ores

But I am and may I count you

"I've heard of thai too." -J

sort, most people think." ;
