There are few people in the world who do not believe
themselves better qualifid to run a newspaper than those
in charge of it. The man on the street generally knows
more than those who have m?e a life stndv of the sub
ject. This is because the individual sees the paper solely
from a personal viewpoint, while the editor' sees it from
an impersonal viewpoint, an average of the viewpoints of
mousanas. .
The present first page make-up of the Capital Jour
nal has aroused more criticism than even the change in
head. It is one, however, that has proved popular in other
commuunities and is used by many dominant papers,
Here, however, it is an innovationand people of the Wil
lamette v alley do not like innovations they are apt to
resent change of any kind, regardless of merit. For in
stance, no region needed good roads more and none fmio-hr
them more bitterly.
Some like the Old English lettering for the heading
merely because nearly all the papers of this section use it.
Yet Old English is obsolete if the paper was printed in
this tvpe it would be unreadable. It is a survival from
the old time into ours and illustrates how tradition has
shackled the newspaper mind. The first newspapers used
it centuries ago therefore it should be used today.
Some suggest the use of the state seal as a centerpiece.
This is because the Oregonian uses it, and many Oregon
ians take their ideas from the Oreeonian. as a matter nf
habit. The cut-and-dried stereotvDed make-un of this
metropolitan paper is by these regarded as the

the same used by the first newspapers, the same still in
use in England. It is non-elastic, machine like, permit
ting no originality or individuality, and unsuited to an
evening paper. However the Dioneers mii?ht Y iflve rpcwrn-
ed the state seal as an emblmatic work of art, it can bv no
stretch ot the imagination be regarded as a thing of
ueauiy, . ; - - ----- -
Some sigh for a retention of the capitol in the heading
even through the smut of obsolete type. - Yet our capi
tol; is like that of jnost of the 47. other states a rather
poor diminutive copy of the national capitol,' nothing dis
tinctive or original about, itunless, it' be1, tlie black un-pamted-ddme
which effectually mars its bea'uty. The
capitol, however, has been a detriment rather than an as
set to Salem. Still others want the supreme court building

Lawton, Mich., Dec. 3. Authorities
i.ave located In Portland, Or., Mrs.
Lester Tabor nnd her son, Walter,
sought in connection with the investi
gation into the death of Maud Tabor,
recording to reports received here to
,'. They will probably be brought
here immediately.
Authorities today appeared no near
er a solution of the mystery of the
t'eath of Miss Tabor than when the
body was located in tho trunk in the
basement of the Tabor home here,
where It had reposed for three years.
Specialists testifying at the coroner's
inquest said there were Indications that
the might have died as a result of
tlood poisoning, brought on through
tin attempt to escape public censure by
nn Illegal operation. . ... .. . "...
Prosecutor Adams, accompanied by
deputy sheriffs, searched the Tabor
home at a late hour -last night, -ransacking
desks nnd drawers for a pos
sible clue to the mystery,- - - ' .. ..

tiavp only been married three years
now, but I mean the first few months
after my marriage when one is still
supposed to be basking under that
radiant light which is never on sea or
land if every one's honeymoon is ob
scured so often by clouds of selfish
ness and ncKlect as was mine.
And tho awful part of It is, that J
am sure that John, if he were asked,
would say that he nover neglected me
in his life. But! am sure that if he
made this statement, he would make
a few mental reservations of things
that he had done by saying to him
self: "What she doesn't know, won't
hurt her."
Unfortunately we women know and
keep ih our hearts the remembrance
of many, many things that our hus
bands do not think we have ever
found out nbout them. It is not al
ways the wife who accuses who suf
fers most.
I wonder what a man would think
if some day while sitting across from
heart? I know very well that in leav
ing me to go home, when I am sure
n.t had ho staved with mo twenty
four hours longer It would not have
made much ditterence in his business,
John planted the first seed of repul
sion in my breast the seed that grew
and grew as ho cultivated it with oth
er acts of selfishness until this' me
morable morning when I wished that
he were out of my life forever.
I have always thought that John
with his characteristic reluctance to
face- anything that was disagreeable,
simply made the telegram he received
an excuse to return! He did not want
to be annoyed by the solemnity and
discomfort of a country funeral. ,
John had followed his first Impulse
and-come to me in my trouble and he
was somewhat ashamed of himself
because ho. had not answered my tel
ephone call. But having made the
amend honorable, from his point of
view; he felt himself justified in tak
ing advantage of his opportunity to
evade an unhappy situation. . ;,
Although mother seemed . much
touched and relieved by the fact that
Charlie Goodwin was going with us In
the carriage she seemed to feol that
it wouldn't be unite decent for two
women to mourn alone behind their
room just before the services be"gan.
He seated himself beside my mother
and me.
I tried to tell myself that it was
different with Charlie. He had loved
my father and mother had known
them all his life and owed a great
deal to them. I tried to be just to
John, but all the while, even above
my sorrow, I kept feeling a deep re
sentment. John had told me that he
never had felt for any other being
what he felt for me. We had to live
our lives together. There should be
between us the strongest bonds pos
sible between two human bolnKS, and
yet he left trie to bear my sorrow alone
left me to the grave and curious
blances of 'the entire little town
where I was born. It seemed to pie
as I passed out with my mother and
Charlie to' the' carriage that I could
fairly hear the wondering comments
upon the situation.
What wonder if my Indignation al
most overpowered my grief?
Charlie said nothing to me about
commonplace remai'kB which would
icaa me to think he was trying to ex
cuse John's absence, my smouldering
anger against my husband would have
burst Into Vivid flame.
And yet his very silence was almost
unbearable. I wanted his sympathy.
Oh, how I wanted his sympathy, and
yet I could not have stood his pity.
As we walked from the carriage
across the greensward .to tho flower
lined grave of my father, I felt as thp
I must say:! "yiy. oh why, is it pot
I that is ,tu lie here?" It seemed to
