"Please say for me in your largest,

Beckwith todny. Mr. Beckwith was
assured that H point was the largest
type used in the nows columns of the
Capital Journal, but an honest state
ment from any present incumbent that
ho would not again be a candidate
would certainly loom up boldly among
the veiled threats to run for office of
the smull army of 191(1 candidates.
Mr. Beckwith was first elected to the
office of enmity commissioner in 1908,
and assumed the duties of his office on
January 1. 190!). Ho was reelected in
191.1, and his present term will expire
December 31, 1910. Mr. Beckwith is a
republican and was the official repre
sentative from the southern part of the
county though ho was equally consci
entious in the interests of the county
as a whole. His humo is nt Sidney

Christmas For The Soldiers
(By United Press.)
Rome, Jan. 2. (By mail.) Princess
Volnnde is .iust finishing her task of
playing Santa Claus to all the wounded
soldiers in Rome. In the hospitals
where this beautiful fourteen year old
daughter of Italy's king could not ap
pear in person there are plenty of
Christmas reminders of her activity.
For months the Princess Yolnnde
worked with her roval fourteen vears
of enthusiasm for the Christmas trees
for wounded soldiers. Indeed she was
chairman of the Christmas tree com-
mitteu composed of young women of the
aristocracy whose thought and care it
wns to see that every hospital for the
wounded wns made bright and Ihrist

the wonderful Christmas trees laden
with gifts which gladden these havens
for Italy's brave sons of buttle.
The Royal family or Italy in a way

Buy Courses in Mythical
A number of Marion county people
were induced to buy a set of the
"Angelus University" by one Otto F
Nelson who worked hero about three
months ago. His method was to Induce
the party taking the course to pay :i
down and then a regular sum each
month until tho course was paid for.1
They were to receive a handsomely en
graved diploma when they had com
pleted their course of instruction.
Kev. Nelson worked through the com
munities of Hubbard, Canhr, Aurora
and ltarlow and numerous complaints
have come to the office of District At
torney Kingo from the people since the
University threatens to sue them If they
do not pay up the remainder of their
alleged balance due. Mr. Ringo wrote
to the chief of police at Lo Angeles
which is given as the home of the Uni
versity but so far the Los Angeles de

"It's a pleasure to seii a meaicine
when my customers come in afterward
and toll me how much good it haa done
them," said Daniel J. Fry, the popular
druggist to a Journal man, "and that
is why I like to sell and recommend
Mi-o-na, the dyspepsia remedy. The
distribution of samples that I made
created so much talk and so large a
proportion of those who received a
sample have bought a box of Mi-o-na
that my clerks have been busy selling
the medicine ever since. I have so
much faith in this article that I am
going to guarantee it in the future, and
will return the money to any purchaser
of Mi-o-na whom it does not help. That
may seem rash but my customers have
said so many good words in its favor
that I do not expect to have many pack'

food docs not digest weil, and who baa

and when, can leave 50 cents deposit
at my store and take home a box of
Mi-o-na and if the remedy does not
regulate his digestion and help his
dyspepsia he can withdraw his money.
I don't know but what we would be
willing to pay him interest."
This shows great faith in the merit
of Mi-o-na. It is really a most unus
ual medicine and the rapid increase of
sales since Daniel J. Fry introduced it
in Salem shows that it does all that it
is claimed to do relieves dyspepsia,
regulates digestion and enables those
who use it to eat just what they want

When the rush to cash in gopher and

note of the fact that Claud Hnrris, of
1298 South Llth street in this city wns
the champion gopher sud molo slayer
of the county. Now Mr. Harris snys
ho needs a stenographer to answer his
mail and to datu he has received over
ISO letters from all over the country
asking about his methods of slaying the
field pests. Not only from all parts
of the state have inquiries been sent
in but from the middle west and par
ticularly the Dakotas have come letters
from farmers who seek to rid their
fields of the gophers and mules who
destroy their crops.
One gopher trap manufacturer has
presented Mr. Harris with two dozen
traps of the kind that he found Host
successful In his operations and tho
firm now wants him to go esst as their
representative to demonstrate the uses
of the trap where the gophers, moles
and other field pests are most numer

To People In Many
Everybody is writing them, writing

zens of Salem to write then. The grest
letter writing week in Oregon will be

fidently expected that thousands of
letters will be written by business men,
school children, professional men, mem
bers of women's clubs, mid in fact
everybody who can scrape up an
acquaintance or remembor any ouo liv
ing back east.
The idea is to interest tho eastern
folks in Oregon and to especially in
duce tnem to come this way when do
ing their travelling. Incidentally, the
object of letter writing week is to bring
tourist to tho state in order that they
may later spread the good news of Ore

ly amount of American dollars.

willing to write, but cannot express
their ideas, the Salem Commercial club,

BOOKS IN EIGHTH
Question to Be Framed So
That Expression in Good .
English is Test
In the May and June eighth grade
examinations a new plau will be tried
in testing the pupils iu tho subjects
of C. S. History and Civil Government,
according to a statement issued todiy
by Staro Superintendent of Public In
struction J. A. Churchill. During the
examination toe pupils will be allowed
to refer to their text books, but tho
questions will be so framed .is to test
the ability of the pupil in expressing
what ho hns learned in clear, concise
language. Tlio advantages of such u
plan are, tmt it permits tho teacher to
emphasize the historie.il events which
she considers most importunl; it gios
tho trained teacher greater freedom so
that sho can do a much higher quality
of work than simply helping tho pupils
to "cram" for an examination; it
frees the teacher and the pupils from
so teaching in J stpdying us to make
the examination the end; it tends to
give the pupils power of expression
and eliminates the memorizing of un
iuiortaiit dates and facts.
"There is always danger," said Su
perintendent Churchill, "of tho exami
nation system developing a question
and answer method of teueiiinir. Anv
plan whereby the examination becomes
tno end is nnpedagogicul, and the ex
amination usually deteriorates into a
memory test. Witii this new plan if
the teacher will adopt it for the pu
pils' monthly tests they will lcnru by
tbo close of tha yc.ir how to use tho
text as merely a rcfcrciico work in
writing their final papers. The ones-
tions will be so worded that it will be
impossible lor the pupil to copv anv
amount from the text book, but lie wiil
find help by turning to it to refresh
ilia memory on some point that has es
caped him .just for the moment. Many
pupils finding themselves in this con
dition when writing on nil examina
tion become so nervous and frightened
that they fail in tho entire examina
tion. This is really the coinmonsense
way to prepare a pupil for his work in
tie every day world, for if a man hns
to write an article or prepare a paper
on nuy subject, he docs not attempt
to depend upon his memory for the
proof which ho wishes to use from va
rious sources to substantiate his state
ments; rather, he hns on his table a
number of reference works dealing
wit'u the subject upon which ho is writ
ing. Tho eighth grade examinations,
to a very largo extent, set the stand
ard for teaching, and I am very con
fident, that this new plan will strength
en the work in tho eighth gindo and
give the pupil much moro power and
confidence than ho gains from the
memory tests. If iiis class standing his
been high during the yenr and iiis Eng
lish work what it should be, he will
pass a good examination. If Iiis class
work has been below par, tho open
book will be of no help to him during
the short hour of the examination."

AS WE GROW OLDER
our minds are quite as active as in
former years but our strength does not
respond when we needit most; perhaps
the kidneys are weak, the liver torpid,
rheumatic pains or stiffened joints
beset us, and we cannot easily throw
off the colds that winter brings.
What we need is the rich cod liver oil
in Scott's Emulsion to renew the blood
and carry strength to every organ of the
piratory tract, and its hypophosphites
strengthen the excitable nerves.
Scott's Emulsion is a scientific oil
food, of unusual benefit to those past
fifty years particularly during the
colder seasons, it imparts warmth and
creates strength. One bottle will prove
its worth. No alcohol or harmful drugs.
