Salem's Magnificent Mausoleum Nearly Completed3 First in State Since the dawn of creation the care of the dead, beautifylug the spot where near ami dear ones repose waiting the judgment day, has been one of the prominent characteristics of the human race. The earliest pages of sacred his tory mention the veneration in which tho dead were held.

Profaue history is also filled with descriptions of honors paid the dead. When Mausolus, king of Carin, died about 350 before Christ, bis widow, Ar tomisa, erected as a monument to bim a building so magnificent, the mausole um at Httlicarnassus, that it is ranked as one of the seven ancient wonders of tho world. What to do with the doad has boon one of the problems of humanity since time began. The idea of scepulture Is horrifying, and there la certainly no more heart-rending sound than the hol low echoes that answer the falling of earth on tho crude box that encloses the remains of a loved one shut out from sight lorevermoro.

UNITED PRBSS UA8ED WIRE. Denvor, polo., Nov. 8. In an effort to bring additional pressure on the owners of Colorado's. , strike-bound mines, union officials were taking pre liminary steps today to completely cut off the state's coal supply. Their plan was to prevent tho mining of coal in other states for Colorado consumption. "The foderal court's-oould have held that it was a violation of the interstate commerce laws to stop cars carrying coal from state to state," said Vice President Hayes, of the Miners' Union, "and we intend to abide by that law, but it is not a violation of any law if we can stop the mining of coal." With a view to the execution of this program negotiations have already been opened with the New Mexican operators looking toward a unionization of their nilnos, and either Hayes or some one representing him, will leave shortly for Cheyenne to ask the Wyoming opera tors to mine no more coal for ship ment Into Colorado. Simultaneously with this, the union's policy committee has telegraphed the union lenders in Missouri, Kansas, Ok lahoma and Arkansas, naming the com panies which sell coal to Colorado, and the amount mined for that purpose. If the outside operators prove balky, It is the union's intention to ronch them through their emploves, 1 4 I Every availablo nook and comor in f .0 auditorium of the Coiumorciul club ,j taken up today with tho different varieties of corn which have been pine- od on exhibit by tho juvenile farmers in Marion county, and the show is one which every ono should see from tho busy business man to the industrious farmer.
