TAKE OFF THE TAX REGISTRA
TION ON VOTING..
'me now city council should unite
in asking tho Marion county delega
tion to strike out of the Greater Salem
charter tho road poll tax qualification
Imposed on voters.
It is wrong in principle to impose
any taxing or property qualifications
on the voter.
In Its practical operation It will re
sult In less and lees payment of the
tax. and less voting.
Even on the ono trial mado in the
four wards of tho old city, tho result
vfiii to keep many from voting, and to
keep many from paying.
Men will nolthor vote or pay under
compulsion. Tho freer mon are to
cast tholr ballot and the moro difficult
to brlbo, and tho more secret tho bal
lot, tho better tho result In good gov
ernment. Tho educational Influence of tho
poll tax restriction Is evil, and ovll
only. Tho object lesson of the young
man or first voter casting a ballot, for
which some candidate or campaign
committee puts up $3 00 is not en
nobling. Thinking mon of all parties will
agree- that tho poll tax restriction
Bhould bo abolished before thero Is an.
other city election, and that will have
to bo done at tho special session.

Postmaster up to 8nuff.
An amusing Incident Is said to havo
happened somo tlmo ago to Postmas
tr Summers that Is not too old to
boar telling. It's about snuff.
It seems that ono of our late ad
ditions to Prinevllle's population, who
by the way, came from a southorn
stato. contracted In his early youth
tho habit of using snuff. Upon his ar
rival hero with the habit, he found
that the demand for the artlclo did
not warrant Its being carried In stock
by local merchants, and falling to
control his appetite, he sent to his
hdme state for a fresh supply.
The wrapping around the latter was
strong enough to stand the entire
Journey except the stage ride which
lauded it In this city. In consequence
the mall sack was very liberally
sprinkled with the fine grained fra
grant weed, and when Postmaster
Summers opened the sack he was
taken vvlth a violent fit of sneeclng.
When his good wife went to Investi
gate the Muse she also sneeaed. and
the chorus was soon nugumented by
the nasal explosions otjthelr assist
nub. It took some tlmo to probe the
ma'ter to an understanding, but Mr.
Summers went at it with a sponge
over his face, and when he found the
source of the trouble It is said he used
a gallon of perfume and his whole sup
ply of small pox dlsonfoctants to re
lieve the situation and himself.
The party to whom the package
was conslgnod Is said to havo also
commonced sneezing when ho heard
of his lose and is still keeping up tho
performance. Meral: It's a wise
nose that recognizes anutt In plenty

Brown Onion Soup
Fried Eols Tomato Sauce
Rolled Flank Steak Brown Gravy
Scalloped Carrots Lima Beans
Wator Cress and Beet Salad
To mnko the soup, peel and cut
fine four largo onions. Heat thrco
tablospoonfuls of butter or clarified
beef drippings; add the onions and
ono scant teaspoonful of salt and cook
slowly until they are a golden-brown
color. Dredge In three tablespoon
fuls of flour and stir often until it is
molstoned and lightly colored. Add
gradually three cupfuls of boiling
water, stirring constantly until thick
and smooUi. Draw to ono side; cover
nnd cook vory slowly for twenty min
utes. Now mix smoothly with It three
cupfuls of hot milk, add white pepper
and moro salt if necessary, and sim
mer for five minutes longer. If a
puree is desired, rub all through a
slevo and reheat. This is a nourish
ing and easily digested soup, henco it
Is especially recommended for child
ren and seml-lnvalids.
For the fish courso tako oilo pound
and a half of skinned and cleaned eols.
If cola aro not obtainable any small
pan fish may be subsetitutcd. Cut In
three-Inch pieces, wash, drain nnd dry
thoroughly in a cloth. Break an egg
in a saucer, add ono tablespoonful of
hot water and beat with a fork enough
to break tho strlngincss without froth
ing It. Have ready a quantity of fine,
dry broad crumbs. Dip each pleco
of fish In tho egg, thon roll in tho
crumbs, making euro that no spot is
loft untouched by tho ogg. As done,
lay each pleco on a pan or board;
do not pllo on one another. For fry
ing, a deop kottlo is safest and host.
Havo In it sufflclont fat to entirely
submorgo tho fish. Any kind of fat
may bo used; a very good combination
is equal parts of lard and clarified
beef suot. Heat tho fat until a thin
bluo smoko rises from tho center as
well as round tho Bides; test by drop
ping In a pleco of bread; It should
brown within half a minute. If you
havo a frying basket dip It first In
tho fat to groaso it, arrnngo in it four
or flvo pieces of the fish and plunge

Season with butter, salt and peppor,
add a spoonful or two of hot milk,
then put again through tho press,
dropping tho flakes into tho dish in
which they aro served.
Mdny persons do not appreciate the
good qualities of carrots, and in some
families they never appear as a spec
ial dish. They should bo on tho reg
ular list for they contain a large per
centage of Iron, and tend to promote
a clear, pink and whlto complexion.
