Splendid Cast of
Principals for "The Mikado"
The cast o'f principals for the " The
Mikado" which follows is an excep
tionally good one, so Director Wilson
says, and although . some of them may
be new to Salem audiences every one
will given good account of himself, or
herself, when the opera is presented on
the evenings of July 31 and August 1.
They have been selected for their espe
cial fitness for the parts assigned, to
bring out the beauty of Sullivan's
music and Gilbert's humor, not only on
account of the singing voice but also in
reference to stature and action. A great
measure of the success of a successful
play is in having it cast with people
who are suited to the parts. Theatrical
producers o'f aU classes have been
more and more exacting in this respect
as the seasons pass. When Gilbert wrote
his librettos he created types common
to all elimes and people, and a suitable

Owing to high water, which in places
has covered the road to a depth of six
inches, the trip to Seaside has not been
attempted by any automobile parties
from Salem this season, and none from
Portland made the attempt until a few
days ago. It is probable that A. II.
Moore will be the first Salemite to
make the trip. He proposes to leave
here Sunday morning with his family
for a stay of several days at the pop
ular beach resort.
Hiking is now the proper method of
exercise and the boys who have been

Smokeless Fiying !
Frying with Crisco means a sweet, smokeless kitchen.
For Crisco does not smoke-at frying temperature. The
potatoes and doughnuts, etc., become almost instantly a
crisp brown. There is no "lardy" taste.
For Cake Making
costs about the same per net pound as the best pail lard.
There is no loss through rancidity, as Crisco stays fresh
and pure indefinitely in ordinary kitchen temperature.
Foods fried in Crisco absorb less, because they fry so
fast and brown so readily. - ..
The same Crisco may be used for all frying. You can.
fry fish, onions, doughnuts, etc., all in the same Crisco.
Merely strain out food particles after each frying. ' .This
is a further savin;.
