"Single Tax aims a direct blow at

clared recently. "Single Tax would
topple the sanctity of the home just
as effectually as Socialism plans to
send it to the dust. ,
"It woidd confiscate both the home

Contractors Make Excellent
Headway with Concrete
Paving Work.
Work Will Probably Be Done in
Course of the Next Two Weeks
Barring Bad Weather.
The crew of the Puh Contracting
company of Salem yesterday morning
commenced the work of spreading the
cement and gravel on Third street at
the intersection ot llaker and at noon
today had nearly reached the center
of the block between Baker and
.Montgomery streets.
The contracting company has a
large mixing machine located at Third
ind Montgomery streets winch is kept
running all day mixing the cement
with the gravel. Ihe mixed article
is hauled in dump carts and dropped
on the street where it is spread and
smoothed up. The "dope" covers the
street to a depth of five inches.
1 his is the hrst contract tor con
crete pavement that has ever been
:i warded in this city and was peti
tioned for by the property owners
on Third street between Baker and
Railroad, a distance of two blocks.
There has been much discussion here
over various kinds of pavement and
the residents on Ihird street linally
decided to try the concrete.
So tar the work looks pretty good
;tnd at the rate the crew is working
now, and barring bad weather, the
thoroughfare will probably be com
pletely paved within the next two
weeks. V. D. Pugh, the contractor,
was delayed in starting the work a
few weeks ago by the inability to se
cure men and teams but has made a
good start and the work is progress
ing now.

Alma Gluck, Metropolitan
Prima Donna, Seeks to Drop
Plodding Husband.
New York, October 10. There was
a commotion today in artistic, musi
cal and dramatic circles following the
announcement that Mine. Alma Gluck,
the delightful soprano of the Metro
politan Opera House, had sued for
divorce. Friends, however, declared
that the action was not unexpected.
.Mnie. Gluck had never entered a
theater until she-was married. With
their baby girl, Abigail, she and her
husband, an insurance salesman, en
joyed a little heaven all their own.
But during the season of 1910, Mine.
Gluck, the loving matron of an up
town home, was "discovered" by the
operatic managers and "made" by
the critics. Fame pounced upon her
after the initial appearance at the new
theater in the role of Sophie in Mas
senet's "Werthetr."
For almost a year the young wife
and mother, who was also the famed
"artiste," struggled between dual
loves, the stage and the home. But
it appears that the plodding husband
did not fit into the new order of
Friends say the couple simply drift
ed apart as if by some tacit under
standing. There was nothing abrupt.
No shock of that sort was given to
the intense artistic spirit of Mnie.
Gluck. But the separation was not
iced just as much in the Metropolitan
circles as 'if the courts had decreed it
last winter.
Today when asked about it in St.
Louis, Mnie. Gluck would not give
a decided answer. She thought that
Gluck should tell the story. But in
New York it was the talk among her
