Year's Building in Salem
Cost Quarter of Million
Despite the fact that the year has been a pretty hard one in some re
spects, Salem has added a quarter of a million dollars worth of buildings to
its list. Of these the three story brick apartment house at 685 Court eas
ily leads. It is a beautiful building and ia splendidly planned with heat,
light and all modern conveniences. It was built by Geo. P. Rodgers and
Charles H. McNary at a cost of $40,000, and is substantial evidence of
their faith in Salem's future.
Liberty street also has gained two fine buildings, that of the Eoth Com
pany a two story brick on the east side of Liberty between State and Court,
the lower floor of which is occupied by the Both Company with its big gro
cery Btock and the upper floor has been leased and beautifully furnished
by the Y. W. C. A. Its cost was $18,000.
The other is in course of erection by the Win. McGilehrists, Sr. and Jr.
It is located at the comer of State and Liberty, and all its space it is un
derstood has already been engaged. This it ia estimated will cost $20,000.
Still another important building erected during the year is the packing
house put up by W. F. Drager at 730 Trade , at a cost $15,000.
A -two story brick on North Commercial, was built by Mrs. A, A.
Mickel at a cost of $7,000.
The Gorman Evangelical church on North Liberty cost $5,000
The boiler house for the Capital National bank cost $7,000. The bnlance
of the quarter of a million spent in bnilding during the year was mostly for
residences, there being many fine little homes in the list.
Taken all in all the year was rather a surprise, as the peculiar condi
tions, such as partial failure of the prone crop and lack of movement of
bops, the two being Salem's mainstay were far from favorable for build
ing, There will from all indications be a much larger Btory to tell Capital
Journal readers about the building record in its New Years paper of 1917.

WATCH NIGHT DJ BILLVILLE
By Frank L. Btajvton,
Watch night in Billvillc very biggest
That ever helped the heathen or praised
the Lord aloud!
They come from all the neighborhood, a
new life to begin,
To watch the old yeor goia' out, the
new year comia in.
The preacher, he gave out the hymn
"Salvation full an' free."
'Twuz follered by "Amozin' grace
that, saved a wretch like me."
An' "Greenland's Icy Mountains"
went rollin' up on high
Till it almost shook the windows in the
An' then we had a word o' prayer; the
preacher stated plain
The object of the meetin ', whar we nev
er met in vain:
Then read a Bible lesson, which give
our souls relief,
Then throwed the meetin' open for ex
An' then said Brother Johnson, 'way
down by the door
He'd served the Lord for 80 years an'
wanted 80 morel
An' Brother Williams cried "Amen!"
un' so the word went round
Till we thought the sleepiest angel up
in heaven licard the sound.
An' (hen we heard more singin', an'
how the tune did rise
"When I can read my title clear to
munsions in tuc skicsl "
An' Brother Scott, he said this word:
"My real estate ain't here;
But, thank the Lord, In heaven I can
rend my title clear!
An' the sisters, they stood up an'
spoke, an' tears wuz fallin' fust,
Fer their gray hairs seemed to tell us
they wuz nearin' home at last.
An' each one told of grace an' love
that lightened up the soul
While crussin' o'er the river "where
the surges cease to roll."
We most forgot the old year, we most
forgot the new,
In tellin' of the wonders that the lov-
in' Lord could do,
An' talk about your shoutin' I tell
you, it wuz prime,
Fer we had, to speak it pluiuly, jest a
I tell you, 'twas a meetin', an' I'd
have you folks to know
Tho Lord wuz with them people as the
old year turned to go,
Au' the new year found 'em happy as
the church bell tolled on high,
An' that watch night down in Billville
took its place up in the sky.

The past calendar year was a very
progressive one for tho Salem post of

year, there having been no county or

At the present time there are employ

few simple rules:
First: Be sure and give tho correct
street and number of the address, which
always insures prompt delivery. The
clerk who divides the mail for tho car
riers is only human and cannot remem
ber all addresses. When the street and
number arc not given, tho letter is first
thrown among tho "nixies", to bo
looked up later by a clerk who attends
to mail incompletely addressed. This
of course causes a delay in tho de
livery of the mail.
Second: Always have your return ad
dress on your envelope. This insures
its return in case it cannot be deliver
ed. All letters advertised each week
have no return address on the envelope
jnnd a majority of them find their way
j to the dead letter office Naturally, the
writer is at a loss to know why the let
ter has nut been delivered, or does not
receive an answer, A return address on
the envelope, as well us street and num
ber address would help wonderfully in
tho prompt distribution of mail and the
return to the writer of uncalled for let
ters. Third: Be sure that your letters are
properly stumped before placing them in
the mail box or postoffice.
