For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
Saw the heaven fill with commerce, argosies of purple sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight, dropping down with eostly bales;
Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rained a ghastly dew.
From the nations' airy navies grappling in the central blue;
Far along the world-wide whisper of the eouthwind rushing warm,
With the standards of the peoples plunging through, the thunder etorm.
Till the war-drums throbbed no longer and the- battle flags were furled
In the parliament of man, the federation of the world.
Keep on with the Red Cross work until the officials
say it's time to stop. Kemember wnat tne boys nave gone

The league of nations will be a class"A" organization
from the jump, judging from the way democracy is sweep

America will be sown from now on with literature
denying German outrages in the war. In fact, warning
has already been issued from Washington that societies
are being formed for tne extension 01 sucn prupagauua.

There should be no weakening in any respect of the
just horror with which she is regarded. The conclusion
of an armistice or peace cannot alter the facts, and should
in no way influence the cool judgment of the world
against which Germany has so grievously sinned, and to
which she must make what recompence she can.

The circulation of the Daily Capital Journal 'during
the past week has broken every record made in the past
by this or any other Salem, newspaper. Even barring
the figure set on Thursday when several special issues
were printed, the regular circulation of the Daily Capital-Journal
has averaged above 5,000 copies daily. On
Saturday, November 2, the 5,000 mark was passed, the
number of copies distirbuted being 5,020, but last Saturday
and issue of 5,215 was insufficient to supply the demand.
Here are the week's figures:
Monday, November 4 ........... .4,910
Tuesday, November 5 5,000
Wednesday, November 6 . . . . 5,020
Thursday, November 7 7,585,
Friday, Novoember 8 4,903
Saturday, November 9 . 5,215

We hope no serious number of fatalities will follow
atinn of the sicrninc of the armistice which be-
can shortly after midnight. According to the Oregonian
and Telegram the casualties of the celebration of we
"fake" reuort were "heavy", and of course those papers
will nn rinnhr. advise all the rjeome to remain quietly in
doors at this time and receive the news over the telephone.
The American flag may not continue to wave over
the conquered lands of Europe but the principles it stands
for are deeply rooted and will grow and flourish to the
betterment of all peoples and all governments across the
ocean that separates the old world lrom tne nev.
Max Harden, Friederich Ebert and other socialist
leaders have finally discovered that the kaiser has prov

Dispatches say moving pictures were taken of the

The Yankees gave them their last good licking only
forty' minutes before the armistice was signed.
They've stopped the draft. Foch closed the German
front door. That's where the draft came from.
They walk through barrages as if they were rain;
They rush through the rivera pell-mell,
And the terrified Huns drop their jaws and their guns
At the sound of that wild-western yell.
In vain the machine guns spit hatred and death, . . .
They keep coming up on the hop;
They have learned how to fight an offensive all right.
But neglected to learn now to stop
Like so many wildcats just out of the woods,
They fall on the enemy's flank
The savage and terrible
Wholly unscarable, :
Fierce, do-and-dare-abla
- Tanksl -
They haven't been disciplined seventeen years,
They often forget to salute;
They're a little bit rough in the tactical stuff,
But they certainly know how to shoot.
And many a German who thought they were soft
And never could count in the war,
In the combat and strife of a bellicose Ufa
Will sot take a hand any more.
While others are rushing like mad to the rear
In advance of the oncoming ranks
Of tho scowling and glowering,
Kaiser-devouring .
They 're gentle as lambs if you let them alone,
But their fury is dreadful to hear
When a Gotha slides by half a mile in the sky
And a hospital's bombed in the rear.
And it riles them clean through when a treacherous fos
Walks out with a smite of good cheer
And observes "Kamerad" while a camouflaged squad
Cuts loose with a gun in the rear.
It Is then that they go through Von Hindcnburg'g lines
Like a squadron of armor-clad tanks,
With purpose ru&Dakable,
With vengeance unslakable,
They're simply inplacable
A Vicker's machine gun, and a revolver
I trust
Are my puis thru the day, when Flit
tie's shells bust;
I fondle them with care, like a mothet
her babe,
While the sizzle of shells' make 'on
feel he's in Hade. ,
There 'a my gaa mask too, w.at without
I couldn't do;
For when he's putting over gas, the
mouthpiece I can chew.
It keeps a follow from eussing, th0 hii
thoughts are far from pure;
But with this trusty pal of mine, 1M
be out of luck I 'm sure.
Now those aro my pals; the beal friend
I've got,
l While I'm up at the front, showing
Fritzie What's what.
I'd rather go hungry than lose any of
tho three,
Which hardly expresses their true wort k
to me.

On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, and watch, with

stand where Moses stood, and view the landscape o'er,
I'd see the Turk vamoose for good from Jordan's sacred
shore. The rose that blooms beneath the hill must short

blemish oh this sphere; hark, from the tombs a doleful
sound tells that his end is near. The Turk still trots on
weary limbs, and leaves much dust behindhand, as we
read, forgotten' hymns, unbidden, come to mind. The hill
