TAGE SIX. DAILY EAST OREGOMAX, rKXDLETON, OREGON, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1009. EIGHT PAGES. CROUP THERE IS NOTHING that .trikes terror to the hearts of parents more than to be awakened in the night by the ringing cough which accompanies an attack of croup. The child may retire with nothing but a slight cold and a few hours later the family be aroused by the ominous symptoms. Every home where there are small children should be prepared for these sud den attacks, as prompt treatment is necessary. Do not experiment with remedies of doubtful value, but get CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY that has been in use for nearly forty years and never known to fail. Sir. Homer Krohn, of Lisbon, Iowa, in a letter to the manufac turers of Chamberlain's Couch Remedy praises this medicine for what it has done for his children. He says: "It has not only saved them once but many a time. Only two weeks ago my boy had the croup so Kid in the night that had it not been for having a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in the house he would have choked before a doctor could have gotten to the house. It is a medicine that no one should be without at any time." It is pleasant to take and manv children like it. "We guarantee every bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy," says W. M. Tarish, Talmerston, Ontario. "Out of the many bottles sold last winter not one was re turned. We recommend it espe cially for children with croup." Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is famous for its prompt cures of coughs, colds and croup. When given as soon as the child becomes hoarse an attack of croup may be averted. This medicine is entirely free from narcotics or injurious sub stances of any kind and may be given to the little ones with abso lute safety. Attacks of croup are most likely to occur during the early winter months, and every family with young children should be prepared for it Keep a bottle of CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY in your home.

Attorneys for the de fense have persistently opposed a speedy trliil. evidently bellevlmr that their clients will fare better after public excitement has had time to die out. It Is thought that self-defense will be the plea of the defendants. L ANNIVERSARY OF IKS'S GREATEST MAN OF LETTEHS Tuesday was the centennial anni versary of the birth, of Edgar Allan Poe, perhaps the greatest poet and man of letters that America has pro duced, and the event was celebrated in New York, Baltimore, Boston, Prov idence, Richmond and many other cities. Poe was born in Baltimore on Jan uary 19, 1809, and was the son of an actress and actor. Boston also claims to be the birthplace of the poet, but all the avalable evidence points to the authenticity of the claims of the lion umental Cty. He was left an orphan In early youth and adopted by a rich Virgin Ian, John Allen, of Richmond. After a short school life In that city he was taken to England, and for five years was at the Manor House school at Stoke Xewington, near London, an experience Poe described in his stor entitled "William Wilson." Judging by that description these school days In a foreign country, in a large, ram bling, mysterious Elizabethan man sion, while he remembered them with pleasure, yet must have done much to fill his mind with a sense of strangeness and mystery, a conscious nes of he unknown that never left him. Enters University. Returning to America he entered In 1826 the University of Virginia, wrier his rarper is snid in Vave been marred by a love of gambling ami! ome fondness of liquor, though it Is very probobie that all this ha? been greatly exaggerated by the malevo lence of Griswold, hi3 first biograph er, whose animus against Poe gave rise to what has been called "the most ex traordinary instance on record of sys tematic misrepresentation on the part of a biographer." Yet even Gris wold says that Poe stood in the firs rank for scholarship and would have! graduated with the highest honors if he had remained In the university. He was also noted for hardihood, strength and activity ,and was an ex pert fencer, a good draughtsman, ready and eloquent as a speaker and debator. Poe left the university, and, ac cording to Griswold, went abroad, In tending to Join the Greeks, as Byron had done, to aid them In their strug gle lagainst Turkey. According to others he went to Boston and attempt ed to gain a footing by publishing his first volume of poems, "Tamerlane," a volume now one of the most priz ed rarities of book collectors. Enters Army. Falling In his attempt to support himm-lf bv hia Den. Poe enlisted, un der the name oC R A. Perry. In the! United States Army, served with dis tinction for nearly two years, becom ing sergeant major in 1829. At this time Poe Is described as five feet eight inches In height, with gray eyes, brown hair and fair complex ion. In 1829 Poe offerd a substitute, was honorably discharged, and by the efforts of Mr. Allan, Chief Justice Marshall and General Scott, was ad mitted to West Point. An attempt to resume his kindly relations with Mr. Allen resulted in complete failure, for reasons differ ently stated by Poe and by his pat ron. The result was to throw Poe up on his own resources, and he settled in Baltimore, devoting himself to lit erature, and, naturally enough, un dergoing great hardship. Becomes An Editor. In Grls wold's memoir we read of Poe's having gained two prizes of fered by a Baltimore newspaper and this success led to his engagement as assistant editor of the Southern Liter ary Messenger. Poe .continued, however, to reside in Baltimore for a time, though the magazne was published in Richmond. In September, 1835, he removed to Richmond, and with an income of but $500 he married his cousin, Virginia Clemm, an amiable and lovely girl Thenceforward he was connected with a number of magazines of the day, being successively associate editor of the Gentleman's Magazine (Philadel phia), editor of Graham's Magazine in 1841, and in 1844 an assistant on the staff of Willis' Mirror. In 1845 the publication of "The Raven" brought him fame. He be came a literary Hon and for a time was much courted. This was the summit of his success. The loss of his wife, two years afterward, seemed to have broken his spirit, and he died in 1849 at a hospital In Baltimore. Too Ixmo Injustice. Owing to the prejudice created by Poe's biographer. Americans have never done Peo Justice. In Europe he ranks higher than In his own land. The amount and quality of work he did was incompatible with a greatly erratic life. In money matters he seems to have been cheated by all with whom ho came In contact. Gris wold's statement that he was expell ed from the University of Vrglnia has never been proved, and as to his statement that Poe could not retain literature employment on account of his intemperate habits, it Is declared there is not the slightest foundation for "this coarse slander." There Is unanimous testimony that while con nected with magazines he was a mod el of punctuality and thoroughness. Ills loving care of his wife during eight long years is almost alone a certificate of his good character, and the affection of the wife's mother for Poe was touching in its devotion. As a critic Poe was almost lnfalll ble. He was almost the first to rightly appraise Nathaniel Hawthorne, de claring him king of the short story. His valuations of American poets In "The Literati" have, In the main, been confirmed by the best sense of later years. A Macr Writer. As a writer he essayed all forms successively with mastery. His short stories virtually exhausted the posl bilities of that form of writing, each standing as a masterpiece of Its kind. Moore says, "One sees authors all over the world painfully following in his tricks, each exploring a sinble re gion which Poe discovered and dis missed In a few pages." In his so called "prose poem" "Eureka" Poe seems to have forseen In general the whole course of modern science Wtre It not too scientific for the de scription, it might be called "An Epic of Evolution." It Is a theory of the universe that might have been ex panded Into a whole Spencerlan, sys tem ot philosophy. It is hardly rash to prophesy that Poe may one day be declared the most creative Intellect that America has ever produced. Even now his only rivals are Emerson, Whitman and Thoreau.
