A Painful Accident Occurs at Ashland
4shi.and, Jan. Alfred Williamson,
an S. P. fireman running out of Ashland
and living in this city, bad a narrow
escape from a very serious accident last
Saturday afternoon. He was strolling
along Bear Creek, near town, when lie
pulled a 32 calibre revolver, which ho
carried, from his pocket to examine it.
He was moving the hammer back and
forth to see that it worked smoothly
when it slipped from his grasp and
struck the can ridge with force sufficient
to explode the weapon. The bullet
pierced the young man's leg just above
the knee. He managed ' to get back to
his boarding place and Dr. J. S. Par
eon was hastily sumuiond. The wound
. proved to be a very painful but not nec
essarily dangerous. He was orderi to
the Good Samaritan hospital in Port
land where hecould receive proper treat
ment and was accompanied there Satur
day night byfireman S. P. Prettym.au.

The following extracts are taken from
an article by E. L. Smith in the New
Year's Oregonian on the fruit industry
of the state:
A comparison of values of the horti
cultural products of the different por
tions of the state may be of interest.
The first horticultural district embraces
that lortiou of the state uorth of Marion
conniy and west of tho Cascade Range.
The second district comprises the coun
ties south of Clackamas and north of
Douglas county, in Western Oregon, also
The third district embraces that section
south of Lane couutv to the California
boundary, and also includes Klamath
and Lake count ie. cast of the Cascade
Range. The fourth district is in Easi-
ern Oregon and includes the counties of
Wasco, Gilliam, Morrow, Sherman and
Crook. The fifth district embraces the
rest of the state, in Eastern Oregon, and
is of immense area, some 30,000 square
miles. The value of the current year's
fruit production in these respective dis
tricts is as follows:
First district $475,000
Third district, 1901 2 703,000
Jackson county, in the southern ijr
tiou of the state, leads in the production

the Hudson River, in Pajaro Valley,
California, and in the Southern and
tastern Oregon. During the past sea
son I saw the splendid fruit, on thrift v
trees, in the valleys of the npjier John
Day river, in Grant county, and a littl
later selected one specimen from the
apple bins of Douglas county, points
nearly 400 miles apart. Jackson count v
leads in the production of this valuable
apple, and I bwd River Valley grows a
lesser quantity, but of nnsnrpass!
Now orchards are ling planted, ee-
cially in Southern and Eastern Oregon,
and the nurseries are bare of leading var
ieties. It is, indeed, satisfactory to
learn that only a few kinds, and those
of highest quality, are being jrrown, for
Oregon, in the past, lias suffered greatly
from growing to many varieties and of
every grade as to quality.
Tacoma, Wash., Jan. C Assistant

'Our first thought, of ccmrse, is care
of the imprisoned passengers, especially

dininir car attached, and we always
make it a rule to have six days' supplies
of food on hand in each car during the
