Our party Included about 20 members, and we enjoyed a delightful outing. Mr. Steel old everything possible to make the journey a pleasant one, and everybody had a jolly time. ” A late dispatch to the S. F. Examiner from Baker city gives this interesting bit of news. “Two young ladies, more accustomed to drawing-room functions than to woodcraft and firearms, killed a large brown bear at Austin station. They are Miss Ruth Jackson ot that city and her guest, Miss Prudence Angle of Medford. The young ladies, with Ray Jackson, a brother of one of the heroines, were walking in the woods when they met bruin. Miss Jackson was carrying the gun and she promptly fired, the shot taking effect in the animal's head. Miss Angle picked up a stout club and finished the job. The young man was not per mitted to take part in the slaughter.'’ FRUIT SHIPMENTS From Southern Oregon Have Com menced—They Will be Large. J. A. Whitman, the enterprising pro ducer and shipper of fruit, has a small force of men employed in packing pears and early apples. He has already sold a few carloads of the former for shipment to St. Louis. Bartlett pears are now in condition for shipment. Many are engaged in picking them, and the orchards in this vicinity present an animated appear ance. The price offered for this fruit is not as good as it was last year, and fluctuates considerably. The beet price offered in Chicago now is <1.70 per hundred pounds, although it has been both higher and lower this sea son. Some shippers got more than <3 per hundred during 1901.

Some unknown party entered the residence of Hon. W. A. Carter of Gold Hill last Friday night, while he and his wife were at Grant's Pass. Among the articles taken were some articles of wearing apparel and jewelry belong ing to Mrs. C., and an open-faced watch, all of the value of a few hundred dollars. The robber entered the house through a screened window. Evidently he or she was aware of the proprietor's absence, and perhaps more or less acquainted with the premises. A young woman living in Gold Hill with her sister was suspicioned of the crime and arrested; but as nothing could be found to criminate her she was released. The guilty party may yet be arrested, as officers are on the lookout. F. H. Page of Portland, the well- known commission merchant, is the Ta Care a Cold In One Dav. guest of Capt. Voorhies and C. H.
