The argument which came np
st a council meeting several weeks
ago about the wall at the north
each corner of this bridge, was
settled by making the wall at that
corner conform to the others, thus
saving the appearance of the
bridge, but making it several feet
shorter, so that it did not come in
front of the store building, the
proprietor of which raised the
question. "
The North 17th street bridge,

Chemeketa and Center, is also fin

world authority on eugenics, who
last night addressed a group of
Willamette university students
and the few townspeople who
knew of the lecture. :
Popenoe has made an extensive
study of the results of the Cali
fornia law the past two and a half
years, and it was from the light
of this survey, largely, . that he
talked to the group.
Purpose Explained .
The whole purpose of the Cali
fornia law is .to sterilise the por
tion of the state's - population
which is least likely to contribute
to the future betterment of the
race, and, with this in mind, 80
per cent of the population of the
nsane lnsututions and 20 per
cent of the feeble-minded inmates
have been treated in the past. 18
years. In all, 6,000 state wards
have been sterilised. -
Oregon ranks second to Califor
nia in : the number of sterilixa

'"'.' : Brown :
Mrs. Philo W. Brown of 298
North Cottage street was at home!
yesterday evening to a large num
ber of friends and townspeople
who came to see her .night-blooming
Ceres, which was open for the
first time.
The night-blooming Ceres Is a
member of the cactus family, and
has many interesting peculiarities.
It blooms for . only a few hours
each year; usually there Is only
one blooming season in a year, but
sometimes the Ceres will open
two or three times.
The plant owned by Mrs. Brown
is eight years old, and last night's
bloom was its first. Mrs. Brown
brought the plant west from Wis
consin; l grew from a slip from
27-year old plant, whicn oiea
in the winter several years ago.
The bud, on a stem growing dl-;
reetly out of a leaf, has been
growing for over two months, and
Mrs. - Brown has been tending it
very carefully during this period.
Yesterday evening the bud began
to swell rapidly about seven
o'clock and was soon in full
bloom; it remained open tin mid
night filling the room with frag
rance, and then closed and will
gradually die and prepare to open
next year.
The flower itself is striking in
appearance: Its large petals, over
three inches long, form ' a deep
cup. From the base of this cup
comes the long white stem of the,
pistil, which ends in several
spikes which, stretch out like the
spoke of a wheel. The yellow-tipped
stamens are the tips of a large
number of other threadlike
growths from the base of the cup.
The calyces are pink spikelike
growths somewhat longer than
the petals. The extreme spread of
the flower .waa some eight inches
The bloom is at the tip of a stem
which at first grows downward
and then .turns toward the light.
The whole plant Is about three
feet high. 1

Mission Group to Decide in
'Two Weeks; Committees
To Investigate
Reason For Withdrawal Not Stat.
ed. But Understood As Final
Culmination of Difference
Over Pastor
In a little less than two weeks
on Wednesday evening, August 8,
to be exact members of the Bap
tist Mission, which for several
months has been holding services
in the Grand theater building, will
decide whether or not they will or
ganise a new church in Salem.
This was decided at a meeting
of the mission members Wednes
day evening, when H. S. Gile, act
ing moderator of the group in the
absence of Moderator E. A. Miller,
was instructed to appoint commit
tees to look Into various phases of
the matter. The committees have
not yet been officially named.
No Pastor Ifow
The mission has been 'holding
services regularly, although It has
had no regular pastor. Sunday
school activities have also been
carried on after the manner of a
regular church, although the mem
bers, up to the present time, are
still officially affiliated with the
First Baptist church. .. '
No statement of the reason for
considering organisation of a new
church was given out by members
of the mission yesterday, but there
is no question but that it is a 'de
sire to end peaceably and without
further friction, the troublesome
situation which arose a number of
months ago at First .church over
the election of Robert L. Payne as
lacting pastor. , . .
-"TrKevlewea Recently.
The mission Is made up of mem
bers of First church who opposed
Mr. Payne's retention, and who
withdrew their active participation
In the affairs of the church when
Mr. Payne was re-elected acting
pastor at the last annual meeting.
The disagreement was partly
aired at the recent district meeting
at Eugene, but discussion was shut
off when the matter was referred
to a committee. '
A possible result, if the 'mission
members do withdraw and organ
ise a new church, may be the elec
tion of Mr. Payne as regular pas
tor of First church, which was im
possible before for the reason that
he did not have a support of two
thirds majority of the members.
