George C. L. rfnyder has been pre

the members of the Salem Rifle club
in recognition of the interest he has
taken in the organization of the club

are already engaged in rifle practice.

The pessimists who said the fair

up the ground for the curbing. In
addition to the city crew working, tae

For the first time in many years, the
public will have the pleasure of see
ing a home talent show at the opera
house, in comic opera. George T. Wil
son, who is giviii" the opera under the
auspices of the Moose lodge is a vet
eran in the comic opera field and be
sides being a singer and composer,
possesses the unusual r.bility to direct
the dramatic work necessary in a com
ic opera. "The Mikado" is perhaps
the most tuneful of all comic operas.!
From the opening of the first chorus
of Japanese men, the music maintains
the interest to the close, llie opera
will be given next Monday and Tues-
lay evenings at the opera house.
While ten and fifteen cents is about
the average that the ordinary citizen
is pleased to pay for a movie, yet
when a film is announced that has at

prices for the lower floor 2 and $1.50,
the opern house has been taxed to seat
ing capacitv by the erowits ttrnwn iy
"The Birth of a Nation." This af
ternoon at 1 o'clock the street was
crowded with hundreds awaiting their
chance for a ticket. And the general
opinion is that the film is a worth the
ntoney and then some.
A fine program of address, music
and readings will feature the picnic

After the first trial, the old-fashioned cook slowly but
surely comes to use Criscoforall cooking. She has become
a Crisco enthusiast. She has found these advantages:
Frying. There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods
are free from the taste of grease. Now they are tasty and
crisp and digestible. The same Crisco can be used to fry
fish, onions, doughnuts, etc., merely by straining out the
food particles after each frying.
