Bringing the Kiddies To
'See the Animals
The John Robinson Ten Big Shows

Houthern I'acific railroad. It was evi
dently a most welcome visitor for there
was a big crowd gathered to see one of
the moBt interesting features of every
Viig circus its unloading from the ears.
' There was a small army of children,
and of course, older folks who hnd to go
along to look after them, although they
all grinned as happily as tho young
liters. The machine like methods used by
tho circus men soon had the great
varavan on the way to tho show
grounds at Fourteenth and D streets.
As it moved away, it was followed by
old and young, who2 desired to be
present to see the erection of the big
tint and the smaller ones that shelter
the performers and house the side
The big parade left tho show grounds
en schodulo time.
Bands played, calliope touted, clowns
shouted, lions roared, horses pranced
end the great crowd that lined the
eurbings and filled office windows en
tered into the spirit of circus day.
Every one was satisfied for the parade
was the best that has been aeon in Sa
lem for years.
The big elephants canned much
badinage, many of the big follows being
picked out as' Teddy, Cummins and oth
ers of the other big herd soon to gath
er in Chicago.
The tents ore up at the end of Four
teenth street, the old high school sta
dium and are reached by the Chcmckcta
street car line. Get off at Fourteenth

HAIES QUICKLY VANISH
AFTER THIS TREATMENT
(Kelps to Beauty)
Science has aided in simplifying the
banishing of hairy growth from the
face, ami according to a beauty special
ist, the most effective treatment yet de
vised consists of applying a dclatone
paste to the hair surface for 2 or 3
minutes. The paste is made by mixing
some water with a little powdered dcla
tone. When this paste is removed and
the skin washed every trace of hair has
vanished. Bo sure to get real dclatone.

Oregon Banks Show
Increase In Deposits
Financial conditions in Oregon as re
flected by tho banks of the state in
their statements' to S. O. Sartront. su
perintendent of banks, show a startling
change for the better, according to Mr.
Sargent, who issued a combined state
ment today of their condition at the
close of business May 1.
As compared with a year ago, the
deposits of tho 17" state'banks and 84
national banks in Oregon have in
creased $12,693,421.41. That more pros
perous times, however, have come to
Oregon industries within the last few
months is indicted by figures which
show that in the 51 lnvs intervening
between .March 7 last aiid .May 1, the
date of the last call, deposits have
gained $0,145,4 1 7.4 2, or almost half the
total increase during the entire 12
months prior to May 1.
Although there is no sure index to
the reason for the sudden gain in de
posits recently, the inccrase is ascribed
generally to the opening up of Oregon's
lumber industry, which, until this
spring, has been in a quiescent condi
tion. The statement issued today places the
total resources of Oregon 's state and
national banks at 1 7 1 . 101.082.10.

1. The 30th day of May, 1 SliS, is

died in defense of their country dur
ing the late rebellion, and those
bodies now liein almost every city,

serving and strengthening those kind
and fraternal feelings which have
bound together tho soldiers, sailors
and marines who united to suppress
the late rebellion." What can aid
more to assure this result than by
cherishing tenderly the memory o'f
our heroic dead, who made their
breasts a barricade between our
country and its fnesf Their soldier
lives were the reveille of freedom to
a race in chains and their death a
tattoo of rebellious tyranny in arms.
We should guard their graves with
sacred vigilance. All that the conse
crntod wealth and taste of the nation
can add td their adornment and se
curity is but a fitting tribute to the
memory of their slain defenders. Let
no wanton foot tread rudely on such
hallowed grounds. Let pleasant paths
invite the coming and going of rever
ent visitors and - fond mourners. Let
no vandalism of avarice or neglect,
no lavages of time, testify to the
piesent or to the coming generations
that we have forgotten as a people
the eost of ,u free and undivided re

hands slack, and oilier hearts cold in
the solemn trust,-' outs shall keep it

of life remains to ns.
Let us, then, at the time appointed,
gather around their sncved remains
and garland the pnssionlcss mounds
above them with the choicest flow

them the dear old flag they saved
from dishonor; let us in this solemn
presence renew our pledges to aid

Dr. Doney in his chapel address this

statistics, compiled from a study of 111
senior classes in Harvard university

tic n. The figures show that out of
the POO graduate the 100 ranking
highest iu their studies while in college
and generally considered as "grinds,"
were the ones who hnd achieved great
est success in their life work. These
men became later state and national
figures;' of the otheis there seems to
have been few who achieved greatness.
This, said Dr. Doney, shows that the
man or woman who applies him or her
self while in college hus a. far better
chance for success than the sluggard.
