A Quarterly Passes
IT1HE Edinburgh Bevies, for a century and a quarter one
A of the great journals of literary criticism in the English-
speaking world, has published its last issue. Its ancient pres
tige could not suffice to sustain it in the face of competition
of newer periodicals. The remark was made in connection
with its passing that the staid quarterly could not hold its
readers in this stirring age when the magazine stands offer
such a colorful array of publications of much greater fre
quency. Still, one may point to the Yale Review and to For
eign Affairs, both quarterlies: and to the change of the old
Century magazine from a monthly to a quarterly. In fact
the subscriber sometimes wishes his weeklies were month
lies and his monthlies quarterlies and his quarterlies annu
als', He barely gets time to read one or two articles in the
current: issue before a new and fresher issue comes to his
library table to divide attention.
So the Edinburgh Review's failure could hardly be at
tributed to its leisurely publication; for that might easily
have been remedied by stepping it up to a monthly. The
Review failed because its old standards did not appeal, be
cause it was no longer the arbiter of literary fashion even in
I the British Isles, and because its editorial content was too
' unhurried for an age whose literature must keep an allegro
rhythm with tlie life which it reflects.
Founded in 1802 bv a erouD of whom JeFfrev. Walter
Scott, Sidney Smith and Lord Brougham were chief, the Re
view ushered in a new era of literary criticism. Scott wrote
for it. Jeffrey accepted for the Review some of Carlyle's
early essays, including his matchless Essay on Burns. Some
of Macaulay's finest essays, which were occasioned as book
reviews, appeared in the Edinburgh Review. Hazlitt was
also a contributor. Such an array of essayists quickly gave
distinction to the quarterly, and its issuance regularly stim
ulated the trade at the bookstalls. To have an article ac
cepted by the Review was a veritable passport to literary I
fame. The Review had a place in Britain which the Atlantic j
Monthly long held on this side of the ocean, until the vener
able Atlantic caught the fever of mass circulation with its
accompaniment of generous advertising.
It is as well, mayhap, that such a publication die after
the period which it vitalized has passed. It belonged to the
19th century, with the Victorians and the Romanticists. Bet
ter a high place in literary history, than a continued anemic
existence in an age with which perforce it would be out of

Spread of Foot Ringworm
DO you know anything about foot ringworm, or about
.'planters' warts? We are not sure that there is any dif
ference. It is a recent disease which is said to afflict some
ten million Americans' and is particularly prevalent in col
leges and universities. The Medical Review of Reviews and
noted health authorities are endeavoring to curb the spread
tf the disease. While the conventional recommendation is
for one suffering from such foot complaint is to consult a
physician, we know that even skilled physicians do not rec
ognize it, and do not know how to treat it when it is observ-
. ed. The ailment may be quickly cured by foot specialists and
this doesnt mean corn-doctors either, but men who have
thorough training in diseases of the feet.
The trouble seems to occur chiefly among those who

Colleges in this state have had numerous cases that required
special treatment. The method of treatment is by radium or

Here are ten rules which health authorities have out
lined in their fight against the disease :

Old times in Salem-
As told by Hon. C. B. Moorea
the story runs on: "As boys, with
cards denied at home as immoral

in the loft of the barn. Young

"The old time auadrille. the
simpler waltz steps, and the Vir
ginia reel fuled the place devoted
in modern days to the fox trot
and the bunny-hug. Tallow can
dies were the ordinary inumin-
ants, sperm candles being used
only for company and extraordi
nary occasions. Later kerosene
oil was Introduced at 11 a gallon
and up. For a water supply every
one needed a well, and a well
sweep, or windlass, or a Douglas
pump, water faucets1 were un
known. Every Saturday night we
heated water in the wash boiler
and performed our ablutions in
the 'family wash tub. The pre-
Talllng diseases of the time were
the result of. and usually adapted

None of them was monopolized by
the 'upper ten.' Abdominal trou

How many of you remember

(The reader should .be remind
ed that In 1861 the land around
the court house was much lower
than now. It was filled in later.
and still later, under the admin
istration or County Judge W, CL
Hubbard, it was filled in lot
more, at an expense of $7001 to
18000. Also the tiart of Ferrr

would havo been had the city
dump of the old. days been left to
the devices ot the scavengers for i
a longer period. When Salem
was Chemeketa, when the early
missionaries came, there was a
low place between what Is now
Liberty and Church streets, south
from Center or Chemeketa, and
in the rainy season there was a
creek near where Liberty street Is
now, that in flood times would
swim a horse.)
"How many of you ever in the
old days manned the brakes of
Capital No. 1 and Tiger No. 2
when we pumped water from the
city cisterns at the junctions ot
state and Commercial and Liberty
and State streets T How many ot
yon ever manned the ropes of
these two engines as we respond
ed, time after time, to the fire
alarms coming In from the outer
district of the town How many
oi you made the record trip of 63
minutes on a flat car to Portland
In 1873, with Capital engine, and
how many of you were on the root
of the St. Charles hotel and there
successfully battled to stem the
progress of that disastrous fire
that swept out of existence so
many blocks from the northern
business end of Portland?"
(Capital engine company's
house was where the Steeres or
Bank of Commerce building Is
now, and Tiger engine company
had its house on the south side of
State street about the middle of
the block back of Commercial.
The Tiger house became the barn
of the Salem Street Railway com
pany, for Its horses and mules. In
the old days, there were firemen's
contests annually, participated in
by the vojunteer departments ot
all the cities in the state that had
and took pride in their organiza
tions. The Salem Tigers were
the hard boiled, rough necked
boys; the Capitals were the dudes
and silk stockinged lads. The
Bits man was a member of the
former. He was what was called
a "side walk fireman," and, on
account of his other duties, was
excused for more roll-calls than
he attended, generally on the mo
tion of wait Lowe or 'Gene Eck
erlen, saving him a lot ot money;
for there was a stiff fine for faU
ure to answer to a roll call (after
a fire.)

ballot by the narrow margin of
only seven votes. It was a race
between two ot the greatest stal
warts of our pioneer days. Pearne
was a fearless, virile, aggressive
and most ambitions nun.'- He was
the first editor of the Pacific
Christian Advocate, then oub-
iahed In Salem. He was at one
time presiding elder ot a district
extending from Paget sound to
southern Oregon. He belonged to
the church militant and was an
uncompromising foe of humaa
slavery. He was chairman' of th
Oregon delegation in the national
republican convention that nom
inated Lincoln for reelection at
Baltimore In 1864. At the close
of the Civil war he located per
manently In the east, and at a
time when the animosities of the
war were at a white heat he was
named to fill a pulpit In Knox
ville, Tenn. So bitter was the
feeling that he was waylaid, shot
at, beaten by roughs and notified
that he would be killed If he held
any services In his church. He
replied that he was ready to main
tain his rights as a Methodist
minister and an American citizen.
He went to his church, he knelt
in prayer, he laid his trusty pistol
on his pulpit and he delivered his
message to his pastorate, and
during aU his remaining years
continued to fight as a faithful
soldier of his church militant un
til he passed away at the ripe old
aaw ot SI years. -
