DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 20, 1913.
In the midst of our feasting or pre
paring to feast, it seems well that we
should recall how abundantly we are
supplied with the good things of life,
in contrast to those who celebrated
the first Christmas on the Pacific
Coast, the Lewis and Clark party, who
198 years ago dined on "spoiled elk,
pulverized salmon, and a few roots ob
tained from the Indians," But not
dismayed by this array of edibles,. his
tory tells as they fired salutes in honor
of the day, and among themselves ex
changed bits of fur, "weasel tails"
being a popular gift, for the people
of that day even as now, felt the
Christmas spirit that envolopcs us all,
and while there are some upon whom
the hand of affliction has rented so
heavily that it can not be a "Merry
fhristmas," yet to all may it be
peaceful Christ mat, with trouble for
gotten for the day.

Salem will soon be the possessor of one of the moat beautiful and substantial Community

That we, in this twentieth century, are becoming
broader and more progressive in our views, not only in
respect to those things which concern life, but death,
is indicated by the growing sentiment in favor of a
more scientific way of burying our dead. This is quite
as it should be, for we have much to learn from the
ancients as to the disposition of the remains of our
loved ones, and who shall say that burying in the
ground is more civilized than placing the dead in the
boughs of trees, as the American Indians did before
they adopted the ways of the white man? At least,
out on the plains and in the depths of the untrod for
ests, the mortal remains were placed in more agreeable
surroundings than under the ground exposed to the
ravages of vermin and permitting the chemical de
composition with results directly at variance with the
efforts of the living to place the bodies of the dead in
decent, not to say luxurious, habiliments. While striv

Now, however, it is possible to have the funeral cortege drive up to the entrance of a large
moisture and vermin-proof structure of handsome and substantial design, carry the casket
into a chapel, where the final services are said under proper conditions, and passing through
a corridor, deposit the remains in their final resting place in a snow white crypt, which is per
manently sealed. These are known as COMMUNITY MAUSOLEUMS and are to be found in
some of the leading cities of this country and in the smaller towns as well. These are con

It is naturally impossible to go into any extended explanation of these modern maso
leums in an article of this limited scope. - It may be pointed out, however, that all dangers
of contagion by the living visiting the burial place of the dead, as is the case in cemeteries,
are absolutely eliminated. Each crypt is equipped with drain pipes through which the gases

In these days when all progressive communities strive
to improve the character of their public and private
buildings, COMMUNITY MAUSOLEUMS are quite the
thing, and infinitely superior to the open cemetry with
its vast area, which eventually may have to give way
to the expansion of cities and the occupation of valu
able land. Those mausoleums which have already
been erected in the United States, totaling over 150,
have contributed materially to the architectural beauty
of the cities and towns where they have been erected,
and the advantages conferred by this improved sani
tary method of burial and the knowledge that they
provide absolute protection against intruders and
against climatic or atmospheric conditions. And,
withal, the COMMUNITY MAUSOLEUM is better
