ays. However, as we dropped in
to this ordinarily happy home the
other day, we noticed an air of
gloom resting over the place. Mac
had the appearance of one tore up
the back." We noticed he was
comparing the silver editorials in
the Oregonian with those on the
same subject in the San Francisco
Chronicle a bad sign. After we ;
had filled our pipe out of his tobac-1
o box and had something to stim
late conversation, he said it was
like this : During high water it is
difficult to cross the river in his
email boat, as there are rapids below,
so he had prepared to run a cable
from bank to bank and ferry him
self across. The cable was made
fast on the home side and coiled in
the boat and he attempted to row
across. The cable assisted to draw
the boat down stream, and a few
feet from the opposite bank he was
forced to jump into the water or be
drawn over the falls there. Thej
water was up to his chin, but he
grasped the bow of the boat and,
by an almost superhuman effort,
succeeded in drawing the boat to
the bank. The cable was made
fast to a tree, a rope passed through
the pulley and attached to the boat,
and lie essayed to ferry himself
home. All worked nicely until the
middle of the stream was reached.
i when the indlev became fast. The
boat rapidly tilled with water and
Mac hfld to swim for it. He came
lout on the opposite side from home,
! carrying an axe with him from the
boat, and tried to fell a tree across.
The tree did not reach the opposite
bank, but he thought he could
wade out. In crossing on the log,
he slipped as he reached the place
where it was under water, falling
backwards, and was washed under
the log and down stream some dis
tance before he reached the bank.
Besides being chilled through, he
lost his hat, an axe, two pairs of
oars and the boat. We venture to
say a man with less pluck would
not be here to tell of it. Mac says
he has boated on the Chesapeake,
Gulf of Mexico and Crater lake,
but Rogue river in a freshet is too
much for him.

....Medford, Oregon,
Is situated ll"0 acres of land which is
especially adapted to
Fruit Growing.
This land has recently been placed
upon the market and is now offered for
sale in tracts of from
21 to 10 Acres.
The name. "Fairview," is given this
property because, that being located as
it is. on a flight eminence, a view of all
parts of .Medford and a good portion of
the valley can be had from any part of
the land. Nearly ail of this land has
been cleared and has been under culti
vation for a number of years. The soil
is of an exceptionally line quality and its
adaptability to fruit-growing has been
proven. This land will be sold upon the
Installment Plan.
Payments may be made at $1.2o per
week, per month or $lo every quar
ter, or a liberal discount will be made
for all cash purchases.
The success attending fruit culture is
no longer an experiment. By direct anal
ysis the soil is found to contain all the
elements required to produce fruits from
the semi-tropical to the hardiest varie
ties. Over these favorable conditions
hangs a climate co-ordinated, and adjust
ed to the nature of the soil.
For further information cencerninjr
this desirable property call on or address
