STORIES OF TWO YEARS OF WAR
Tuesday next is the second anniversary of the begin
ning of the European war. As appropriate to the occas
ion the Capital Journal has arranged to present its read
ers a series of articles from those war correspondents
who have been at the front or in the foreign capitals since
the war began. There will be five articles in each series.
One each from England, France, Germany, Russia and
Italy. The publication of the series begins today with a
storv concerning the army of each of these countries.
Tomorrow, the five articles will be concerning the navy
of each, Monday the articles will deal with the war s et
fects on each; while Tuesday the popular spirit of the
warring peoples will be discussed. The final story will be
in Wednesday's issue. The articles are splendidly writ
ten and the numbers of the Capital Journal containing
them should be filed away for reference.
THE BIRTH OF A NATION
Six arrests were made in San Francisco yesterday in
connection with the bomb tragedy a few days ago. One
Qf the men arrested had a couple of hundred cartridges in
his room, ot the same brand as those used in the deadly
bomb. The police claim to have other clues that point
strongly to him as being one of the men who placed the
bomb on the street. That is about all that is known as to
the evidence against any of them, for the police are natur
ally not giving their case away before they have their
drag net around all those whom they suspect.
1 The Birth of a Nation took Salem by storm, and the
Grand was crowded at every performance. It could have
played here a couple of days more to packed houses just
as well, and perhaps even longer for many who were
anxious to see it were turned away at every performance.
The pictures are certainly wonderful, especially those
showing the Ku klux at work. The battle scenes too were
great and seemingly impossible to stage for the original
pictures. In some respects, though, it was a disappoint
ment. One of these, and the most disappointing too, was
.the part portraying Lincoln. It is a pity that some actor
could not have been selected for this part who had a
better conception of . the grand character, its rugged
gentleness, its great heartedness and above all its supreme
humanness. The actor made Lincoln a silent, woebegone
person, solemn to deadliness and acting as though he was
attending the funeral of his best friend, instead of pre
senting the frank and pleasing countenance the brave,
patient face, smiling often even in the midst of his bur
dens, and the kindly word and pleasant greeting that
were so natural to him. Another disappointing feature
was that the heroines were chits of girls with ex
pressionless putty faces, and they never once during the
whole performance showed the least evidence of the art
histrionic. However bad acting while detracting from
the pleasure of the play, could not alter the fact that its
pictures were superb, thrilling and these with as many
adverbial prefixes as you please.
New York is wrestling with an epidemic of infantile
paralysis, and a street car strike, while Chicago is swel
tering on land and boiling in the lake. All the middle and
plain's states are suffering from the hot wave, but Oregon
jogs along with nothing the matter with her and the
Loganberry crop ready to pour a carload of juicy sweet
ness over the counters of the resorts in the east, daily
for the next year. This from Salem alone. Salem is tell
ing the East so too, through the Phez advertisements at
$5,000 worth a clip.
Russia has the Turk headed for home and going as
though his ma had called him. Her army in Mesopotamia
is marching along at the rate of fifteen miles a day, and
has nearly ll'.O miles of -open country before she will have
to give the Turks another shoo. This is certainly going
some as compared to the gains by the Germans and allies
on the western front where they figure it like a football
game, and measure yardage.
If the drawing of the lands at Spokane yesterday went
in the same proportion throughout as did the first 50
names, the Washington folks did not let outsiders get
away with much of the swag. Of this fifty, one Oregon,
one California, one Wisconsin and two Montana ap
plicants were winners. It will be seen that only 10 per
cent of the winners were from outside the state of
I like to linger in the shade, close to the pail of -lemon-ade,
and watch the honest sons of toil get busy with the
fertile soil. I like to see them shock the wheat, out in the
Dimaing giare oi neat, tne great strong men
who do not tire, and all their labors I ad
mire. I wonder at the giant strength that
they display, the whole day's length, and
wish I had such thews as theirs I'm soft
from riding easy chairs I envy them the
appetite which makes coarse fodder a de
light, I envy them the sleep profound they
know when slumbertime comes round; I
envy them, but do not flee from my retreat
beneath a tree. I often counsel other men
to get back to the soil again, to simply live
and labor hard, and work away their surplus lard. But
this soft place beneath a tree is plenty good enough for
me. the men who toil with might and mam, who plow
the globe and reap the grain, receive my earnest, ardent
praise, and l embalm them in my lays; and I am happy in
the shade, with my tall jug of lemonade.

It's a waste of time to experiment
with liniments and plasters when you j
nave a ilull, throbbing backache or
sharp, stabbing twinges. Get after the
cans"! Help the kidneys with Doan's
Kidney Pills. Head this:
A. J. Wood, (i8! North Commercial
street, Salem, says: "Kidney - and
bladder trouble got to a point with me
about two months ago when I was ob
liged to take some steps in checking it
or suffer more serious results. The
worst tinit I had was just after getting
up in the morning and the kidney secre
tions were very annoying. I believe us
ing Doan's Kidney Pills, procured from
Dr. .Stone's drug store, and my kidneys
were restored to a normal condition
and I was freed from every symptom
of the trouble." (iStateinent eiven
January 30, 190(i.)
On April 11, l'Mfi, Mr. Wood added:
"I have had very little trouble from my
kidneys or backache since I got hold of
Doan's Kidney Pills. I don't know of
anything equal to them."
Price 50 cents, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy get
Doan's Kidney Tills the same that
Mr. Wood has twice recommended.

Grants Pass. Ore., July 2S. Efforts
are being made today to raise $1,000 as
a reward for tho capture of dvunmiters,
who wrecked tho pumps, which supply
water for the irrigation ditches along
the lioguo river near here. Ike Davis,
who has charge of the pumps during
the night, was standing withm a fen

Go to Salem Cannery
A shipment of .'J.220 pounds of red
raspberries (115 crates) was made by
Eugene Fruit Growers' association Inst
evening to tho Sulem Fruit union.
Manager Holt had packed nbout as
many of the red raspberries as he had
orders for, and Manager Pnulus at Sa
lem, was short, hence the shipment.
Loganberries from the Junction City
territory are now being shipped to the
juice factory at Albany, since the local
plant lias about as much of the juice
as it cau use. Vast quantities of the
raw loganberry juice have been stored,
and as soon as some labels are received
it will be repacked in bottles of attrac
tive size and put on the local market.
Black raspberries are coming in slow

amount that the cannery could use. The

contained more moisture than usual.

It must be that the wentlier Is not so
bad as it seems to some folks. Despite
tne unusual amount of rain, conditions

Even the loganberry would not reveal
the secret of its destiny until pressed.
A very good reason has bobbed up
why Salem should have a glass factory,
and thus far no reason at all has bobbed
up why she shouldn't.
