the November elections than If held before. It Is assured that the question
of the relations of the United States with Cuba will enter largely into the
approaching campaign, and it Is stated that the President feels the Demo

the elections. A treaty with Cuba practically has been prepared. The Presi

RELIEF OF CUBA
There la no fixed rule about thinning
fruits. The time to do the work and
the distance apart depend largely upon
conditions. One thing should be borne
in mind, and that Is thinning should be
done before tho seeds are well formed.
When peaches reach the size of an or
dinary peach pit, they should come off.
As a rule too little fruit Is taken off.
Most successful peach growers thin
from four tn eight or ten inches. Atwjut
six Inches Is tho average distance.
Pears should have about the same dis
tance, while plums will do well If left
as close again.
Pioneer Killed by Lightning.
A special from Phoenix Tuesday evening says:
Richard Payne was
Instantly killed by a bolt of lightning.
This is the first death by this
means that is on record in this valley. Mr. Payne had just completed
threshing his crop and had placed all the agricultural manchinery and
Implements.under an oak tree near the residence. The first bolt of lighten
ing from the sultry atmosphere went down the branches of this tree and
struck Mr. Payne who was sitting in a closet located under the tree. The
thunderbolt struck the right side of his head and face and continued on
down to his feet, leaving a red spot to mark the course of its deadly path.
The burning of his whiskers was tire only evidence of disfigurement.
The deceased was born on the farm on which he met his death 28 years
ago, and was christened Richard Finley Payne, being the youngest son of Mr.
and Mrs. C. T. Payne, highly respected Dloneers of this valley.
Another Strike is Imminent.

AN IMMORTAL PLAY
One cannot help but wonder why it
is that “Uncle Tom’s Cabin’’ always
proves a drawing card, and yet there
Is nothing very wonderful about It
when once the plot and presentation
of thia realistic drama is taken into
consideration. We have read “Uncle
Tom's Cabin” as many as twenty
timesand always with absorbing in
terest; and so, too, we haye seen it
presented on the stage forty times,
and it seems as if we enjoy the last
better than any previous rendition.
There are some plays like “Uncle
Tom’s Cabin” and “Rip Van Winkle”
that will never wear out. There is
that about the plot of “Uncle Tom’s
Cabin” a combination of drama,
comedy, wit, humor and pathos, all
blended so naturally and realistic
that the audience lives through it all,
become part of the players on the
stage, and have their sympathies
aroused to a degree that makes them
feel as if they were witnessing a real
drama of eyeryday life.—Ingersoll.
The Warren & Day Co., present
the old drama in Jacksonville Aug.
20th in a huge tent; only one per-
pormauce will be giyeD.
Governor Geer Returns.
Governor Geer arrived back from
Crater Lake Tuesday afternoon and
took the 4:52 train for Salem, being
called back by important busuu^a.
The governor was highly delighted
with his trip and declared Crater Lake
to be the grandest and most wonder
ful sight that he had ever seen. All
the party were well and enjoying them
selves at the time Governor Geer left
them. H. J. Matoon brought the gov
ernor tn from the lake. He left here
Friday morning and caught up with
the party at the Rogue river bridge
that evening, but as the governor had
determined to see Crater Lake, and the
message Mr. Matton brought not indi
cating that his return was an urgent
matter, he went on to the lake with
his party, they arriving there Sunday
afternoon, having camped Saturday
night at Silver camp. Monday morn
ing he started with the governor for
Medford, making the return trip in a
day and three-quarters.
