THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL Is the only newspaper in Salem whose circulation is guaranteed by the Audit Bureau Of Circulations FACTS AND WORDS. 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. ALFBED TENNYSON, 1886.

II ' -M CIRCULATION RECORD OF WEEK. 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 The Capital Journal is a member of the Audit Bur eau of Circulations and its circulation figures are attest ed by the auditors of that organized assocoiation.

Max Harden, Friederich Ebert and other socialist leaders have finally discovered that the kaiser has prov ed himself useless. After.a while some of these wise Ger mans will discover the world is round. Dispatches say moving pictures were taken of the German peace envoys.

JUST YANKS - 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, Hun-overpowering, Kaiser-devouring . Tanks! 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 Yanks! , J. J. MONTAGUE.

On Jordan's stormy banks I stand, and watch, with cheerful eye, the hurried Turks burn up the land, as they go whizzing by. Through storied scenes tney . wildly irusn their coattails flapping wide, they're scratching for the underbrush, where thev mav hope to hide. By cool Siloam's shadv rill the Turk, ih deep distress, is wonder ing horn Kaiser Bill got him in such a mess. Could I butl 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 ly fade away, and so the Turk, with lust to. kill must per ish and decay. Too long, too long he's nung arouna, a 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 sides and the towns and streams knew One, long, long ago, who has inspired the hopes and dreams that all good Christians know. It is the soil of hallowed worKs, ana it js good to see such moral lepers as the Turks chased out of Galilee. Oh, may they be forever .banned, forever and a day, from Canaan's fair and happy land, where their pos sessions lay. o THE WIFE By JANE PHELPS it MM MBS. CLAYEORNE AT LAST CIDES TO VISIT RUTH.
