THE GROUCH ABNORMAL.
A Chicago dispatch thus re

city, the subject being the mis
anthrope: or in popular parlance,
The specimen of humanity
long familiar to the divorce
courts and generally known as
a "grouch" was placed under
the medical microscope by Dr.
Charles McCormick last night
analyzed, dissected and finally
declared to be a mental, mons
trosity. Moreover, 'Mr.
Grouch's" propensities for ill
temper were declared to work a-
gainst his recovery when per
chance, illness overtakes him.
Dr. McCormick's theories
Were expounded at the third an
nual convention of the Associa
tion of Independent Doctors.
The delegates say there are no
"grouches" enrolled inJtheir as
"The man with a grouch is a
queer specimen bf humanity,'

If there be any deficiency of the

late hours in foul the night be

that widespread subterfuge, the
'continental breakfast,' consist
ing of a cup of coffee and some
fruit or a single roll. This is a
very pretty breakfast, so far as
it goes, but it doesn't go far;
and the solo basis for its adop
tion on the Continent is that
is only intended as a temporary
tideover until the real breakfast
of meat, eggs, fish, with beer or
wine, which is taken at about 10
or 11 o'clock, like a very early
luncheon. If you havA't got a
good appetite for breakfast,
make it your business to go and
get one, instead of allowing
yourself to be blinded in this
morbid state of affairs and de
ciding that all you really need is

Do Not Like Land
C. H. Flitchard "You can have all
the Harney county land you want, but
in my estimation Polk county land is
worth three times as much. I don t
want any of it in mine. "
C. W. Craven "I did not see any
thing in that country that looked good
to me. Of coilrse if you want a home
stead there, there might possibly be
something for a man that wants to go
through the privations of a homestead
er, but for a man to take it up under
the desert act there is nothing to it.
Clint Moore "I went over a large
portion of the land open for settlement
under the desert act, and while some
of it is -all right there is none any good
unless you have water on it, and in my
estimation there is no chance to get
water on it at any cost."
Wm. Kurre "Polk county land

of it in mine. It might be all right if
it had plenty of water on it, but it

U. A. Hodge "l didn t see see any
thing in that section that looked good
to me. You can buy land in that sec

look over the land and I was so well
pleased that I just grabbed on to 160
S. E. Irvine "I think that it is the
opportunity of a young man's life, and
after a careful investigation I filed on
160 acres and I am glad of it."
Prof. Mcintosh also took up 160 acres
as well as Miss Iliff , but we have not
been able to see either of them, and
just what they think of the proposition
we are unable to say.
L. Damon and J. E. Hubbard tele
phoned from Portland that they each
filed on 320 acres.
W. W. Percival, Jim Hanna, and D
G. Dove, the last that was heard from
them was that they had chartered
automobile and that they were going
to play the string out and come home
by the way of Vale. All of those who
went into the Harney valley are glad
they made the trip for the reason that
gave them an opportunity to see just
what a big country we have in Oregon.

BIG TIMBER DEAL
The largest sale of timber land re
corded in Linn county for a number of
years has just taken place at Browns
ville,, the lands involved in the transfer
being known as the Martin tract, owned
by local people, consisting of approxi
mately 2500 acres situated on the north
slope of the divide between the Cala
pooia and Mohawk rivers. The price
paid for this land was close to $45,000,
the purchaser being the Crossett Tim
ber Company, of Portland.
It is surmised that the land goes into
hands of speculators. Brownsville
only four and a half miles distant from
the land. The land, is admirably situ
ated for logging and milling.
From photographs of fountains now
in use in New York City, the Ladies
Auxiliary to Eugene's Commerial Club
has selected a very fine fountain for
the depot park. It will be much larger
than the one originally ordered and
will be of iron, beautifully bronzed.
Instead of 13 feet, the new selection
will be 16 feet, high and each of the
three upper pans will be ornamented
with electric lights. The fourth - or
lower one,, will be six feet in diameter
and ground basin, which wiil be octa
gonal ana maae ny local people of con
crete will be two feet high and 14 feet
It is agreed to have the fountain
shipped from New York within four
weeKS ana to nave it in place some
iine during the latter part of Septem-
, was f, ... the material nri(T.
inally selected would not be durable,
as has been found on examing the big
flower vases at the depot park, which
are of the same material.
Objection to iron was mainly on ac-
sount of its having to be painted, but
the funds on hand enable the auxiliary
to have it bronzed, which is by far
the handsomest that can ba obtained.
CITY COUNCIL IN
A special session of the city
council was held last night at
which a resolution was passed
for the improvement of Washing
ton street from Second street to
the grounds of the Southern Pa
cific Railway Company, the pro
visions calling for a bitulithic or
Hassam pavement and the rail
road track to be made to conform
with the established grade.
An ordinance was passed es
tablishing the city datum and
street grades on Second and
Washington streets and on ar
butting streets that will be in
cluded in the proposed paving.
The Health and Fire, Light
and Water Committees were in
structed to examine into the con
dition of all buildings on Second
street which might be considered
dangerous to the public safety
and to report their findings to
the council. ,
Instructions were issued to the
Fire, Light and Water Commis
sion to confer with the Water
Commission in the matter of the
water mains and piping in the
streets proposed to be paved so
that all unnecessary work in the
future may be avoided.
The council will meet again to
night and it is expected that the
petitions now being circulated
for the paving of Monroe and
Jefferson streets will then be

statement that Oregon's showing is not

who admitted he had not seen other
exhibits, objected and accused the G
T. of "knocking." It is interesting to
note what J. L. Stockton, former head
of the Salem Board of Trade, says.
Speaking of his visit at the fair Mr.
Stockton said that he was very much
disappointed with the Marion county
exhibit. He said that the exhibit was
placed on the second floor where very
few could see it also that the Oregon
exhibit in general was not put together
in a manner to properly exhibit the re
sources of the state.
