THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL. SALEM. OrcEOON. FRIDAY, DEC. 24, 1915.
ABIT of interesting romance is
connected with the marriage of
Ming Zola Hitchcock and Frank
Btinnon Gannett, which took place in
J'ortlanJ last evening.
The bride and bridegroom have
chosen as the design for their house
Jiold silverware the Mary Chilton pat
tern. That fact perhaps would pass
unnoticed if given but superficial at
tention, for that particular pattern of
silverware is plainly colonial, rich in
its simplicity and is popular with
But here lie the romance: Mr. Gan
non is a direct descendant of that very
Mary Chilton for whom the silverware
that they are buying was named and
who was the first European woman to
set foot on American soil, being the
first woman to land from the May
flower in 1020.
And that is not all. For Miss Hitch
cock, the brido, is a lineal descendant
of John Aldon, another of the - May
flower 's passengers.
Bo when the (jannotts become settled
in Halem, and the colonial pattern
which Mr. (iannc-tt tins chosen because
of its intimate association with his
-distinguished ancestors adorns the
table, the real colonial spirit will em
anate. Professor and Mrs. M. 8. Pitman, of
Woiimmith, are the house guests of Mr.
and Mrs. K. F. Carlton.

YOUR BRONCHIAL TUBES P0ST0FF1GE SWAMPED
When a cold settles in the bronchial
tubes, with that weakening, tickling
cough, immediate treatment is very
important. The breath seems shorter
because of mucous obstructions; usu
ally fever is present, your head jars with
every cough and your chest may ache.
This is no time for experimenting or
delay you must get Scott's Emulsion
at once to drive out the cold which
started the trouble, and it will check f
the cough by aiding the healmg pro
cess of the enfeebled membranes.
If you have any symptoms of bron
chitis, or even a stubborn cold, always
remember that Scott's Emulsion has
been relieving this trouble for forty
years. It is free from alcohol or drugs.

Volume of Business This Year
Breaks All Previous
Records In Salem

ager Who Displeased Her
Setrttle, Wash., Dee. 24. Seattle to
day awoke to the fact that it has among
its rosidents and has had for many
years a woman whose income is $500,
000 a year, or about $1,400 a day, and
yet she is hardly known here. At pres
ent she is at the Palace hotel, in Wan
Francisco. Her name is Mrs. Lena Rood,
who was one of the Titanic victims.
Reports of the income tax collectors
recently said that ono unnamed resi
dent of Washington Btato was paying
on an income of $500,000. It was dis
covered today that Mrs. Rood is the
person referred to. Her fortune is esti
mated at $25,000,000.

Uncle Sam 's business is booming in
Salem this Christmas time. Whilo there
is no time and opportunity now to
make comparisons it is certain that the
amount of mail and parcels handled
this year will break all previous rec
ords. Postmaster Huckcstein, in his shirt
sleeves, is directing a force of employes
wholly inadequate to cope with the
situation in quarters by far too cramp
ed to take care of the volume of busi
ness flowing in and out night and day.
Still the force is rising to the occasion
and all are working with a rush so that
patrons are taken care of with remark
able little delay.
The postmaster's private office is a
store room for packages, and mail sacks
and parcels are stacked everywhere
about the building that available place
can be found. The rural carriers are
overloaded going out and up to today
have brought in bigger loads than they
took out each mornimr. They will make
their deliveries tomorrow as usual'and
Christmas means no holiday for them.
The overworked city carriers will also
make one delivery tomorrow forenoon.
Conditions at the postoffice indicate
the great need of larger quarters since
the parcel post system became effect
ive, and if the government officials
eould take a look around the premises
at this time there would no doubt be
something done in that direction with
out unnecessary delay. With cramped
facilities at best the rush periods of
the year make the handling of postof
fice business very unsatisfactory to
say the least to the employes who are
anxious to give good service. The pub
lic should bear in mind the disadvan
tages under which mail and parcel post
business are handled and placo any crit
icism upon the service they feel is due
where it should belong. Postmaster
Huckcstein and his assistants in all de
partments are certainly overworking
themselves to remedy the conditions
which confront them.
BIX HUNDRED BABBITS '
Moro, Ore., Dec. 24. The annual
rabbit hunt of the Moro Rod and Gun
club was conducted Wednesday with
Dr. C. L. Poley as captain of 6S mem
bers of the winning side, and L. Bar

Caused by Disease of the Kidneys.
The close tonnectron which exists
between the heart and the kidneys is
well knows) nowadays. As son as
kidneys are diseased, arterial tension is
increased and the heart functions aro
attacked. When the kidneys no longer
pour forth waste, uremic poisoning
occurs, and the person dies and tho
cause is often given as heart disease, or
disease of brain or lungs.
It is a good insurance against such a
risk to send 10 cents for a sample
package of "An-nric" the latest dis
covery of Dr. Pierce. Also send a
sample of your water. This will be
examined without charge by expert
chemists at Dr. -JJierce 's Invalids' Ho
tel, Buffalo, N. Y. when you suffer
from backache, frequent or scanty ur
ine, rheumatic pains here or there, or
that constant tired," worn-out feeling,
it's time to write Dr. Pierce, describe
your symptoms and get his medical
opinion without ehaigo and absolutely
free. This "As-uric" of Dr. Pierce's
is 37 times moro active than lithia, for
it dissolves uric acid in the system, as
hot water does sugar.
Simply ask for Dr. Pierce's An-uria
Tablets. There can be no imitation.
Every package of "An-uric" is sure to
be Dr. Pierce's. You will find the sig
nature on the package Just as you do
on Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
the ever-famous friend to ailing wo
men. Kidney Disease is suspected by medi
cal men when patients complain of
backache or suffer with irregular urina
tion, disturbed, too frequent, scanty or
painful passage. The general symptoms
are rhunmtic pains or neuralgia, head
aches, di.zy Bpells, irritability, despond
ency, weakness and general misery.
Worry is frequent .eauBe and sometimes
a Bymptom of kidney disease. Thousands
have testified to immediate relief from
these symptoms after using Dr. Pierce's
An-uric Kidney Tablets. Adv.

30 Pound Turkey by
Skill With. Shotgun
W. Al. Jones, who is secretary for the
state fair board during the busy season,
won a 30 pound turkey for his Christ
mas dinner by his marksmanship at the
Capital City Rod and Gun club grounds

clay birds. After the smoke of the first
volley had cleared away it was found
that seven of the shooters had broken

of the traps for each man and Jones
Moore, Wddall and' Orvil Wilson were

Siddall and Wilson through a long
string of honors at the traps arc handi
cap men and although they broke 10
straight they dropped out under their
one bird handicap:
Jones and Moore then shot five bird:)
for the turkey and Moore dropped ono
