Indication of exuberant celebration
Representative Chinese citizens of
Salem attribute the dearth of cele
bration to three causes: at present the
Oriental population of Salem la very
mall; secondly, there Is general at
titude among modern Chinese to
adopt the Gregorian calendar com
monly used among other nations. The
third reason for laoJc ui undue cele
bration of the new year, is one with
which the leading Chinese families
here ara well satisfied and that is
the lack of gin and other exonerat
According to Chinese computation,
this la the sixth day of the new year,
9, from the beginning of the Chinese
republic In old computation the rev
olution took place in the year 4609.
While 1926 Is the English "leap
year" the calendar of the Orient has
"beaten us to It" by having Just pass
ed the Chinese leap year, which con
tains thirteen months and about 380
iays. The usual Chinese year has 11
months or about 354 days. The Chi
nese "Leap year's" bears no special
privilege for the feminine sex so far
as broaching the proposal to enjoy
marital bliss is concorned.
The leap year of the Orient (Chi
na) occur every three years or with
slight addition of time, twice In each
tlve year period. The noxt leap year
by this old calendar will be In 1923,
according to local Chinese who ex
plained the time system very care
fully to the Capital Journal reporter.
This reporter states that all went well
until his informant started to ex
plain the transition of the Chinese
Qult.ndar, from the year 197 and a
half. Then politeness and courtesy
were summoned and a promise "to
call later" brought the Chinese New
year story successfully to a close.
Tha only general observation by
the local Chinese of the Oriental new
year during the past two weeks has
Ibeen the inevitable exchange and pre
sentatlon of gifts between friends.

The True Cost of a Corset
Must Be Judged By Its Quality
The prices of corsets are high. We are not responsible for that.
But we are responsible for the quality of our corsets.
We must be and we are sure that the woman who buys a cor
set of our make, will be able to wear it longer than any other corset
for which she pays an equal price.
The true cost of a corset is at once apparent when the purchase
price is divided by the number of days worn.
The cost per day of a Warner-Made Corset is Low Because the
Quality is High.
