. Streets and buildings of Salem should be decorated
for fair week the big annual event in the life of the city.
In gala attire the community should welcome her guests.
Thousands of people from all sections of the state
flock to Salem and preparations should he made to greet
them as they are greeted at Pendleton for the Round-Up,
at Portland for the Rose Show and in other live commun
ities. First impressions go a ong way with visitors and it
must be admitted that Salem does not rise to her oppor
tunities. Intsead of a live and growing community, the
first impression of the visitor is that Salem is a dead one.
Fair week should not be regarded as an-occasion for
petty grafting, but as affording an opportunity for adver
tising the city as well as the products of Oregon. In con
nection with the fair, should be staged the street pageants

Salem has too long been indifferent to fate. - Cursed
with being the capital, she has been content to have the
state pour bounties in her lap and has failed to develop
be initiative, force and progressiveness that creates
cities. She has prospered through little effort of her own
her prosperity has been forced upon her.
Let us hope that before another year rolls around,
Salem will not only dress-up for the occasion, but wake-up
to her opportunity.

To say that he won the respect of the

mildly. Their fear of him was only ex

In Portland, Putnam worked xn the

man after Jackson 's own heart. Put

Washington Star.
A Cincinnati preacher, Sunday, prayed for success of
the local baseball team, appealingto God to "grant the
players keen eyes and wits, and many runs." In his ser
mon he declared that the church should encourage sup
port of the national game and be glad that it affords help
ful recreation to the multitude.
No one objects to church members taking a healthy i "p "nd tako notice- Local business men
interest in baseball, even though it be professional sport, fftflklS
dui wny a minister ot tne gospel should appeal to the Al
uighty for many runs, is hard to fathom.
One wonders what kind of a conception of the Infinite
this preacher has, that he should desecrate the pulpit with
such trivialities. No wonder the church is losing ground.

a class of small pupils the story of the wonder, said, after a moment's thought:

A little liny, his eyes wide open With
business a lot better than they did and
knew that what th )y didn't like to have
printed was exactly what the people
liked to read. Like C. 8. Jackson, he
knew that an advertiser 's advice should
always be fallowed by doing exactly the
opposite it an editor wishes to build up
a popular newspaper. Tho only way to
work Putnam was to ask him to do what
you didn't want him to do. If he didn't

was sharp enough- to see throagh any-;
thing, he might fall for it. 111...

(From the Portland Spectator.) ' '
One of the bost newspapermen in the
country is George Putnam, on whose
purchase of the Capital Daily Journal
the people of Salem, and, indeed, of the
entire state, ar0 to be congratulated.
Mr. Putnam has had a deal of experi
ence in nowspaper work. Home years ago
he was news editor of the Portland Jour
nal, and those who worked with him in
tho -days of that paper's puny you
know how much -he contributed toward
its success. As owner and editor of the
Mail-Tribune he not enlv gave the peo
pic of Medford a paper for which thev
had every reason to bo grateful, but aid
cd in making Medford a city of which
the state has reason to be proud. The
Spectator has frequently enjoyed the
happiness of diBngreeiug with Mr. Put
nam 's views, which all its arguments
and eloquence could not change, because
Mr. Putnam believed they were right. A
newspaperman is usually one who does
not own a paper, but can write; a jour
nalist, one who. owns paper, and can
not write. Mr. Putnam is a journalist
than who there are fow more forcible
writers, a-nd a newspaperman ' who has
made very valuable the papers he has
owned. ' The Spectator expects to see
