Every school in Portland is closed to

The downtown streets are seas of

Many trees have fallen from the

iMiss Hazel Erixon as Josie
Lockivood Does Real
Leap Year Stunt
A short time ago a prominent New
York woman gained considerable nows-
paper notoriety by declaring that if a
1 woman wanted to marry a man she
j should come right out and propose to
i him. Well, there is really no good ren
I son why she shouldn't if she thinks
(she can get away with it and getting
I away with it is simply a matter of
I knowing how to go about it.
I There are a few simple, definite
j rules, by which any woman can ninny
any man she wants to marry. This may
sound queer, but it is an absolute, eold
I blooded fact. All you have to do is to
i follow the rules-, and you can't fail,
i Miss Hazel Krixon, one of Salem's
i best known and most beautiful young
j women, will give a public demonstration
I of this sure-fire method of securing
I your choice of hm-lmnds tomorrow and
Friday evenings of this week, when
i the Social Service Center of the Snlcm
j Commercial club present at the (irand
j theatre Winchell Smith's world-famous
, comedy, "The Fortune Hunter," w ith
nn all-star cast of local talent, for the
benefit of charity.
j In the role of Josie T.ockwood, Miss
. Erixon has the congenial job of propos
ing to a man who is trying his best to
keep her from it. Josie makes up her
mind to marry Nat Duncan, the young
fortune hunter, (James Molt), aiid she
figures out a bomb-proof system of
i courting that no male human in the
! world could stand up against for an
' hour. Xat is about the hardest custom
er that a hushnml-seefcing- woman ever
tackled, but the manner in which Josie
'lands him is so cany it seems a shame
to do it.
! If you are looking for real, honest-to-goodnes.4
comedy (the kind that you
can limiih rk'ht out loud at) don't fail
! to see Miss Ki ixou play Josie Lock w ood
!in "The Fortune Hunter." It will be
: a treat you will remember and enjoy ns
; long as your memory lasts. If, on' the
other hand, you are looking for a hus
ibnnd then to miss "The Fortune Hun
Uer" would be an act of criminal neg
j ligenee on vnur part, because .Miss F.iix-
on in "The Fortune Hunter" shows'
you how you can get any husband you
want just for the asking.
I The Social Service Center's presenta
tion of "The Fortune Hunter" is tro-
ing to be u much bigger thing thnn any
body imagines. The piny itself is the
most popular comedy on the American
stage, the cast includes the most notable
aggregation of amateur players ever
brought together kt one time on the lo
cal boards, and from the viewpoint of
a theatrical production it will totally
eclipse anything that has yet been at
tempted. The play will be mounted
throughout with new scenery, built and
painted especially for it, ami it will
follow in every detail the original pro
duction ns oit was staged at the Gaiety
. tneatre, .mhv rorK, in 1!M0.
j Seats for both performances of "The
i Fortune Hunter" are on sale at the box
j office of the flrand tneatre now. The
j prices are 25. 50 and 75 cents (no dol
lar seats) and the price of vnur ticket
! will be a direct donation to the org
anized charity work the Social Service
! Center is doing. Seeing "The Fortune
j Hunter" will be a mighty pleasant wav
! f or you to help the organization feed
I and clothe the hundred odd needv Salem
families it is caring for this winter.

COST Or GASOLINE AND
TIRES KEEP MANY HOME
(By United Press.)
Cleveland, Ohio, Feb. 2. Be
cause of the high price of gaso
line here 20 to 22 cents per
gallon, retail many owners of
" automobiles are storing their
cars. Some have not taken out
their 1S)1U licenses, dealers and
garage men say. Tires and tub
ings have also cost more. The
increased cost of gasoline is ex
plained by dealers here as due
to the fact that but one-sixteenth
moie crude oil was pro
duced in 1915 than in 1914,
while 27 per cent more internal
motive power was in operation.
However, government reports
show that. there is more crude
oil above ground now than ever
Only Way To Cure This Disease Is To
Destroy Its Cause,
If you have catarrh and want to get
rid of it you must kill the germs which
cause catarrh. Stomach dosing, oint
ments, sprays, creams, douches, etc., fail
bocause they overlook this fact. They
all help by giving temporary relief but
they do not reach the germ life that
has found lodgemeut in your head, nose,
throat, and could not destroy it if they
The host known way of destroying ji
mo dangerous germs ot Catarrh anil
consequently ending the disease itself,
is to breathe into the air passages of
your nose and thioat the pleasant, pene
trating air of Ilyomei (pronounced
High-o-mc). Ilyomei is made from
purest oil of L'ncalyptus combined with
other powerful, healing, antiseptic and
germicidal ingredients. You breathe it
through a little pocket inhaler which
Daniel J. Fry and other leading drug
gists in Salem and vicinity are furnish
ing with every complete treatment sold.
Every time you inhale the sweet, fra
grant air of Hyomei through this little
device you are drawing into your swoll
en, inflamed, germ luden membranes a
medicated air which will not only re
duce all the swelling and inflammation
and open your clogged nosfl and stop-ped-up
air passages, but will absolute
ly and positively destroy every trace
of Catarrh germ lifo it reaches. Drug
gists are so sure of the blessed, lasting
relief that Hyomei brings to catarrh
sufferers that they sell it invariahh
on the positive guarantee that money
paid will bo refunded if successful re
suits aro not secured from its use. Get
I a Hyomei outfit from your druggist to
day and begin at once to drive this
'dangerous and disgusting disease from
your system lorever.

The state fish and game commission

25 cents for miking an affidavit for

quarter of a dollar so collected to tiie

muiity should not deduct five per cent

of game licenses by the counties.
