SOJIE SUNDAY THOUGHTS
I he every member canvass" of many churches in this
country is held on a certain day with the. idea of finishing
tne worjc and Having it done thoroughly aud quickly. This
. is being done by manyj American Congregatiiral churches
today, and in order to assist In this work the homeland
boards of that church have issued a neat booklet, appropri
ately illustrated and setting forth the needs of that church
organization as a whole, and especially with reference to
Its various lines of home missionary I activities,' as: Work
vri tI? tne negro, with the .mountaineer, the Indian, the immi
grant, the new churches, the colleges and hospitals, the Sun
.day schools, and the ministerial relief J ' As these things
touch the needs and the appeal of,!! the-churches, it will be
interesting to nearly every reader note "the unique wording
oi the body of this booklet, as follows ;
;I am not going for an automobile ride on Sunday after
noon, December 4- - ;

and I have made my subscription for the coming year.

himself in need of spiritual as well as secular education, and

"And just at sunset, when all the others have gone, I

SHOULD TEACH MORE INDUSTRIES
Thero Is an article In Th Statesman of this morning,
"kindly submitted by'CoL E. Hof er, concerning the very cred
itable showings made by the Salem public schools In the way
of teaching industries, -
With 40 boys learning to be metal workers and 300 to 400
learning to be wood workers." j.
But Col. Ilofer shows that our schools should be teaching
a thousand boys useful trades, and they should be turning
out greater quantities of useful commercial articles, giving
the boys some pay for their work while teaching them to
enter into the cctive industries as theys grow Into manhood.
They should go further. than this ; further than indicated
by CoL Hofer. The Salem public schools 'should bet teaching
agriculture; training both boys and girls the rudiments of
the industries on the land how to produce larger and better
tree and fcush fruit crops and vegetables of the varieties. In
which we can excel ; and to do better dairying, and to' get
ideas of butter and cheese making. And canning and pre
serving And live stock breeding- And many other lines
that will tend to increase our quality and quantity products
of our soil and sunshine and showers, and mesh up with the
packing and merchandising and marketing of them in fin-
!:hci forms. - '-x- ;,,:-
YTo have here the potetially richest section -of thef world,
czd it xrill como into its own faster through the help and
rcp:r psr7octivo and enthusiasm of our young people than
I It will be fcr them thus t,. r:rl land of both diversity
and opportunity fa better" than some-distani state or sec
tion. ' v.' - 'jfiylf f! yi---: nJiH;4&? llrv Y
Take the case of the walnut Industry, We are 'doing very
well in the Willamette valley we produced this year" about
1000 tons of walnuts; good walnuts, better and selling higher
than California walnuts of the same grades. And produced
at lower cost ; and on lower priced land .
But California produced this year 42,000 tons' of walnuts.
Why 7 i California made her first beginnings of the wamut
industry at as late a time as Oregon did. There are English
walnut trees at Aurora, 25 miles from Salem, as old as any
California trees of the same variety; perhaps older. " :
' But California people have had the enthusiasm, the belief
in themselves and their country, that has been largely lack
ing in the Willamette valley, up to within a few years.. '
We should acquire the California spirit of enthusiasm. We
should believe in ourselves and in our matchless section In
the many franchise products which we are capable of putting
over in large ways. The list might be extended over many
newspaper pages. We can a lot of fruit and vegetables in
Salem. We put up over a million cases annually; use nearly
a fourth of the cans used" in the three Pacific "northwest
states for canning fruits and vegetables
But California puts up some 25,000,000 cases. Mostly
peaches 'and apricots and vegetables. In bush fruits and
strawberries we are far ahead of California. But we haveJ
only yet made a fair start. ; .''
Train our youngsters in our public schools, give them the
vision of the possibilities before them, and they; in their
sure footing and confidence and youthful enthusiasms will
make our valley great inhabit it with 10,000,000 prosper
ous, contented people, and more, and give Salem 1,000,000 of
them, and mor. ; '
Build the incinerator where it ought to be,. below the level
of the city, and above the level of large tracts of land, which
must be to the north and the sewage disposal plant will
naturally follow in the same locality. And, while people who
do not understand may protest, their children and children's
children, and all the oncoming generations, will bless the
foresight of the present city fathers, and the country to the
north will be richer than the valley of the Nile. And those
plants will be in no way objectionable, built and equipped
and conducted according to modern methods.
Keep up Salem's I industrial development; keep the in
dustries on the land and in Salem and the surrounding towns
growing, and there will be no danger of over building. The
primary thing right! now is to put the Oregon linen Mills,
Inc., on its feet and make it a going and profitable concern.
Nothing else ought to get in the way of this thing, until it
it is finished. '
Berlin was the first great city to turn a noisome nuisance
into a commercial asset of great value and profit; the first
to have a sewage disposal plant and great gardens in connec
tion. Salem will join the procession and on plans a thous
and miles ahead of "the first German system, because science
has discovered better ways. Anything short of this is both
nasty and noisome, and wickedly wasteful.

What Dr. Caldwell Learned
in 47 Years Practice
Dr. Caldwell watched the re
sults of constipation for 47 years,
and believed that no matter how
careful people are of their health.
diet and exercise, constipation will
occur from time to time regardless
ot how much one tries to avoid
it. Of next Importance, then. Is
how to treat it when It comes. DrA
Caldwell always was In favor of
getting as close to nature as pos
sible, hence his remedy for con
stipation, known as Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin, is a mild vegetable
compound. It, can not harm 'the
most delicate system - and Is not
a habit forming preparation.
Syrup Pepsin Is pleasant-tasting,
and youngsters love It. It does
not gripe. Thousands of mothers
have written us to that effect.
Xr. Caldwell did not approve of
drastic physics and purges. He
did not believe they were good for
human beings to put into their
system. In a practice of 47 years
he never saw any reason for their
qse when a medicine like Syrup
Pepsin will empty the bowels Just
as promptly, more cleanly and
gently, without griping and harm
to the system.
Keep free from constipation I It
robs your strength, hardens your
arteries, and brings on premature
old age. Do not let a day go by
without a bowel movement. Do
not sit and hope, but go to a drug
gist and get one of the generous
bottles of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin. Take the proper dose
that night and by morning you

will feel like a different person.
Use Syrup Pepsin for yourself
and members ot the family in con

up fevers and colds. Always have
a bottle In the house, and observe
these three rules of health: Keep
