When Mary had her little lamb, ex
istence was Joke then people lived on
pie and Jam, and weren't always broke.
The prices then were not so steep as
those our markets quote, and so a girl
could have a sheep, n warthog or a
goat. If Mary had a lamb today, and
wished to feed the same, and went to
buy a bale of hay, she'd find the price
& shame. And she would cry. "Oh,
mutton dear, the prices freeze my
blood; if you can't live on atmosphere,
methinks your name Is Mud. I gnash
my teeth and mourn and weep to see
you go away; but I must have a wood
en sheep, that doesn't bleat for hay."
When Mary had her little lamb you'd
buy ft herd of swine, for what you now
pair for a ham, that's mostly bone and
brine. Then little girls could have
their lambs, to trail along behind, and
bobcats, crocodiles and clams, and pets
of every kind. ' And they could have
their polar bears, and wolves, and
snakes galore, and build them neat
and cozy lairs beneath the kitchen
Boor. But now a girl would get In
wrong. If she with pets should fool;

INDUSTRIAL TURMOIL SOUGHT.
ASTRIrtE a day keeps prosperity away and Salem
should strive to be a strikeless city. Under the joint
mediation plan now in effect, one prospective strike has
been averted and another strike quickly ended. There is
no future controversy that cannot "be promptly compro
mised as long as the rule of reason prevails.
Prompt settlement of the Spaulding mill strike is due
to the spirit of moderation and conciliation governing
both sides to the controversy, which as in many other in
stances, was based upon misunderstanding. It demon
strates that both Salem employers and workmen - are
amenable to reason" and conservative in temperament.
, However, it seems the prompt strike settlement gave
offense to a few labor radicals not directly concerned in
the matter, for a resolution has been offered in the cen
tral labor council calling for the removal of the council's
representatives upon the conciliation board for having
used excellent judgment in terminating the mill strike
Evidently the local bolsheviki were disappointed in not in
augurating industrial warfare in Salem and creating dis
cord and resultant suffering.
In as much as both parties to the controversy are sat
isfied with the agreement reached, the strikers got all
and more than they asked, this effort of the reds to create
trouble will probably die abomin'. It should for the
future welfare and prosperity of Salem.

Phillip Hammond, attorney from
Oregon City, was visiting at the court
Iictise here toduy iruusacting legal
tiiiKlneitiL Mr. Hammond is associated

INVESTIGATION has disclosed the fact that over 50,000
V aliens are working in the industrial centers of this
country to foster Bolshevism, anarchy and revolution.
Many of the foreign language newspapers, pro-German
before the war, are spreading the propaganda.
Official investigation" has also established the fact
that the red or radical press of the country is financed "by
wealthy dilettante socialists "and anarchists of New York,
the same groups that financed the peace efforts before
and during the war and generally played the German
game, although mostly American born.
Other agitators like John Reed, admit their campaign
of Bolshevik propaganda is financed jointly by Lenine
and rich women sympathizers in the metropolis. All of
these sinister forces are co-operating for "revolution and
the destruction of the government. ' -
The field selected for operation is among the huge for
eign populations in the industrial centers and the steel
and coal strikes offer most favorable opportunity for
spreading the propaganda. Wherever there is a strike,
there flock the apostles of anarchy spreading their insid
ious fallacies. '
We will not have industrial peace until this crowd of
alien firebrand anarchists are rounded up and deported,
until the seditious press is suppressed and the advocates
of revolution muzzled. Liberty-is not license and the hos
pitality of Uncle Sam is grossly abused and the doors
should be permanently closed for this class of immigrant.

that he hould wish to do 'might af

not realize that this could come to be

thought that John's love for me was
overpowering that all the world
meant nothing to him.

the conspicuous position In which ho
had placed me, but Immediately found
that I need not have worried about so

lobby of the hotel, leaving me to fol

door through which he passed nearly
hit me on the face.
Ho was so intent upon getting the
proper accommodations that for the
moment he had lost Bight of the person
for whom, presumably, he was getting
them. Although I did not realize it, I
have since found that this singleness

upon tha thing at hand, Is John's pre

him the successful business man that
he Is. but sometimes I have thought

that John had registered "John Gor

"wife" he turned to me and smiled

The Best Amusement
Ever in Oregon
Coming to Salem
IN ANNOUNCING GUY BATES POST
as the best amusement attraction ever seen
on the Coast I am only voicing the opinion
of the critics of San Francisco, Portland
and every other city in which this well
known star has presented "THE
MASQUERADER" not in past seasons,
BUT RIGHT NOW
THE SAME EXCELLENT COMPANY'
THE ONE THAT HAS PRESENTED
THIS ATTRACTION SINCE IT
BEGAN The same wonderful scenic
equipment with its double revolving;
stages its three mechanical crews
its triple electrical equipment and
inimitable resources that requires three
mammoth cars to transport, will be seen
in SALEM WEDNESDAY NIGHT,
WHEN NEGOTIATIONS BEGAN for
this wonderful organization, the writer
made a visit PERSONALLY TO
SEATTLE, in order that I might be
fully and thoroughly familiar with the
merits and massiveness of this presenta
tion. I was more than repaid for the,
trip, by seeing what I honestly believe to
be the most finished and impressive
theatrical entertainment I have ever
seen, THE MOST COMPLETE THAT
HAS EVER MADE A TRANS
THE STAGE OF THE GRAND .
IS LARGER THAN MOST STAGES
THROUGHOUT THE STATE, and yet
by actual measurement there is but a few
inches to spare in accommodation this
massive production, and only that is made
available by removing every vesta ge of
house scenery and equipment, in fact the
Manager for Mr. Post made a special
trip to this city and personally measured
the stage to make certain of its
adequate dimensions. v
IT IS WITH PARDONABLE PER
SONAL PRIDE that I can and do assure
the amusement lovers of the valley of
the unusualness of this production
Mail orders will be received and reserved
in order of reception now. The usual
and customary box office sale will open
six days in advance of the engagement.
TRICES the same as Portland, San Fran
cisco and all other cities, will range from
$1.00 to $2.50 And I desire to state while
there is no chance for The Grand to
make a profit from this exceptional
engagement, I feel certain amusement
lovers will amply reward by their
continued and appreciated patronage.
"WHAT noble service do we get from these convex and concave
pieces of glass more precious in value than the rarest aad most
radiant gems! They correct our erring vision and restore our dim
ming sight They open up fresh worlds of observation and lead u
into strange and unknown paths of knowledge. Through their crys
tal discs we look up Into the eternal fields of light and count the
shining flowers of the sky; we gase down into the tiniest particles
of matter and find new forms of life. By virtue of mere glass ia
ion is exalted and Its boundaries immeasurably extended. By means
of mere glass we may hope to pertetrate.the! veiled mysteries - W
nature and search out the secret sources of life."
May we not open to you this wonderful vision?
