ple residing in the vicinity of Hornbrook
station and Linkville that a branch rail
road will, in the near future, be located
up the Klamath river from the above

upon the fact that parties who are sup

also that capitalists are purchasing largo

One of the most important things to
be considered by a stronger settling in
our midst is the matter of schools. Prox

necessary to be considered that no judi
cious man neglects to inform himself con
To the intending Betiler, we would say
that no rural section of the United States
affords better facilities for education than
are offered by Jackson county. Educa
tional interest here has been on the in-
rcrease during the last ten or fifteen years,
until a very desirable standard of excel
lence has been reached by teachers and
is demanded by patrons. Many of the
older and richer states are less progres
sive in their school work than we are,
and have less reason for congratulation
as to system, methods and results. The
attention of strangers in our valley is par
ticularly, invited to the public school at
Jacksonville. This school is recognized
as oce of the very best in the state, and
has no superior anywhere on the coast..
The libei ality and energy of the people
were earlv directed toward the establish
ment of a good public school in the town,
and of such it justly boasts to-day. Young
men ate here fitted for college and the
active business walks of life, young wo
men for teaching and other useful pur
suits, and all the youth of the town are
given a practical education. The bur-

STRUCK A BONANZA.
Mr. J. Watt, of Benton county, last
week was boring a well on hi place for
the purpose of waltering stock, and when
down about 15 feet he struck a bed of
coal from which a fearful smell arose. He
then abandoned it and went about 200
yards farther off and again commenced
bonng down into the bowels of the earth.
At the depth of about 20 feet he again
struct the coal Dea, ana trie gases and
fumes arising therefrom were so strong
that the men were compelled to abandon
the work. Mr. Watt is of the opinion
that either he has cut something in the
bowels of the earth or else he has struck
a gas well.
Explanation: Mr. Watt has simply
run bis augsr down into the sanctum of
the Southern Oregon Transcript and
struck the only thing there gas.
