A COLD TBY THIS
Writes From London
By Margaret Mason.
The Argentines speak Spanish tongue
And after several weeks or so
1 got quite tired of these.
I long6d to get to London town
Where English "she is spoke"
And folks would ''savvy" all I said
And 1 "get" every Nblokc."
Alas! T am in London town,
I stroll along tho Strand,
But I don't comprehend their talk
And they dou't understand.
I would I were in old New York
Where every child and man
Knows how, when and where to talk
Good straight American.
London, Nov 2. (By mail) We
Americans really ought to learn three
foreign languages, French, Spanish and
Of course in ther countries it helps
a bit when you don't speak the native
tongue to gesticulate wildly and talk
with your hands. You can't hand out
anything like this in London though
and got away with it indeed your
handy efforts along these lines arc all
After several desperate attempts at
telephone conversation when they greet
you with "Are you there?" you have
a weak sort of foeling that perhaps you
aren't all there after all.
The other day I went out shopping.
To explore the secrets of the home,
here is what I wanted to get. A pad
to put upon a table- cloth (you know,
we call them silence cloths back in
Lawrence, Kansas) a ynrd of chiffon,
five yards of cheese cloth, a new suit,
some samples for an evening gown, a
pair of garters, a pair of dress shields,
a half yard of white oilcloth and a
spool of thread.
At tea time I returned wild eyed
but triumphant with a bump sheet, n
yard of niiion, five yards of butter
cloth, a costume, some patterns for an
evening gown, a pair of suspenders, a
pair of preservers, a half yard of
American cloth, a reel of cotton; real
ly wasn't it enough to make me real?

The contest for the pennant in the
group foot ball contest by three tennis
of the heavy section was won by Mof
fett's team. The contest has been
close throughout and every game
played on schedule date. The 'teams
captained by Moffit, Gill, and Frank
Brown were so evenly matched that
when the last game was played, Moffit
and Gill were tied and the greatest
score 13 points. Tho tie was played
off, Moffit's men winning 7 to 0, and
this from a touchdown and goal on the-
first snap of the ball, the remainder of
an even break.
The line-up of the winning team:
Moffit, enptnin, R. !.; McAlvin, L,
II.; Rndcliff, F. B.; Waters and Lung

Get a small package of Hamburg
Breast Tea, or as the German folks call
it, "Hamburg Brust Thee," at any
pharmacy. Take a tablcspoonful of the
tea, put a cup of boiling water upon it,
pour through a sieve and drink a tea
cup ful at aay time. It is the most ef
fective way to break a cold and pure
grip, as it opens the pores, relieving
congestion. Also loosens tho bowels,
thus breaking a cold at once.
It is inexpensive and entirely vege
table, therefore harmless.

COST OF EDUCATION.
The Salem board of education, in re
turning $4407.44 to the county superin
tendent has just claim that this sum doc
not equal 75 per cent of the cost of edu
cating non-resident pupils. The differ
ence of opinion is in the interest on the
investment and depreciation of the pro
perty, which every man takes into con
sideration. These two items in parti
cular a court of law would view iu a
fnvorablo light. There is not. only the
interest on the capital invested, but the
upkeep. The Salem board might havo
accepted what was tendered as reten
tion would not mean a receipt in full.
Woodburn and other districts having
high chools arc interested in the out
come of this Salem case. If Salem wero
alone concerned there would doubtless
be no contention and the demand would
have been complied with, but there are
; others and this causes hesitation upon
the part of the powers mat ne. ino
