Dear Sir: We are arranging to
send a lot of trout fry down to your
part of the country. We plan to
have a carload leave here Tuesday,

some of your sportsmen meet the

number of cans of fish and liberate
the fish in Ashland creek? We
should be glad to furnish you with
fish to stock other streams in your

Kindly let us hear from you "im

PLAN IS ABOUT READY
Irrigation Scheme for Ashland and
Talent to He Submitted to
, Ranchers at Once.
It is 'said the irrigation plan to
water the district between Talent
and Ashland is now ready to be sub
mitted to ranchers and fruit grow
ers of this section for their approval
or disapproval. It is stated that if
they fail to accept the proposed plan,
the upper Ashland district will be
given an opportunity to obtain 'the
water for their large area which lies
above the proposed line.
In speaking of the probable re
ception that the plan would receive,
Mr. Osgood said: "Wenticipate no
trouble in obtaining the acreage. A
large number of the ralichers have
signified their intentions to obtain
water and when the contracts are out
and the .people of the district learn
the cheap rate and liberal terms that
will be offered they will undoubtedly
be able to obtain the required acre

Criminality has suffered a great

in thf county bastile, one of which is
serving time for larceny and will be

other cases are for larceny.
Last year at this time the jail was
crowded with 14 prisoners, whose
crimes ranged from larceny thruogh

TRASK WANDERS AWAY
Ashland Citizen Heroines Confused in
San Jose and Spends Night
in Iodging House.
Considerable excitement prevailed
here Sunday and Monday when Port
land newspaper wired to local repre
sentatives regarding the reported dis
appearance of Charles Trask of this
city while on an auto trip in south
ern California. Investigation of the
circumstances leading up to his dis
appearance soon cleared up the mys
tery and Monday morning the lost
man was found in a lodging house in
San Jose, where he had spent the
The family had arrived at San
Jose Sunday evening and while his
son Avery was filling the gasoline
tank Trask went to a nearby bakery.
Becoming confused, he wandered
around the city for several hpurs un
til kindly disposed strangers secured
a room for him.
Upon his failure to return a few
minutes later, a search was started,
and after fruitless results from the
efforts of his wife and son, they
asked the assistance of the police,
who immediately took a hand in the
affair. The city was scoured, but no
trace of the man could be found.
The story that Trask told the of
ficers was that when he came from
the bakery he could not find the au
tomobile or his family and set out to
locate them. Confused by strange
surroundings, he wandered around
the streets until about 9 o'clock and
was then taken in charge by two
kindly disposed strangers, who took
I him to the hotel and say that he was
safe for the night.
The family are quite well known
in Ashland, having been residents of
the city for some time. They have a
fine home on Fairview street. The
trip through the south is being made
for the benefit of Mr. Trask's health.
When the family left here they told
friends that they would keep' them
posted on the progress of the trip
as they went along, but no word ever
reached the city from them.

Today the active management of
"The Hub" passes out of the hands
of H. G. Enders and is taken up by
his sbn, H. G. Enders, Jr. Mr. End
ers, Sr., will retire from business
temporarily and take an extended
vacation, while Henry will assume
active charge and run the business
on the same progressive principles as
in the past. Mr. Enders has sold to
his son a half interest in the busi
ness. He leaves tomorrow for a 60
day trip to New York city, where he
will purchase a full line of notions
and 'ladies' furnishings and will fill
up the spacious store building to its
fullest capacity. Upon his return he
plans on taking a long vacation.
Mr. Enders came here six years
ago and established his business In
the building now occupied by Dirk
erson's paint and paper store. He
was very successful in this location,
but the era of improvement lured
him to the East Main street location
and he erected the splendid concrete
store building which he now occu
pies. During his business career
here he has shown himself to be an
up-to-date business man, progressive
both in a mercantile way and for the
general interests of the city. His
retirement from active business op
erations will be regretted.
The new manager is well known
here, having attended the local high
school and been a prominent figure
in social and musical circles among
the young peole. His entrance
upon the business arena in Ashland
will be welcomed and his success is
freely predicted. He has recently
graduated from the high school at

Deputy Sheriff John Schallock
made the arrest. At the time he
believed Clark was the murderer of
the little Holzman girl in Portland
and for whose capture a large re
ward had been offered. A descrip
tion of the suspect was sent to the
Portland authorities and it was an
nounced by Chief Detective Beatty
that he was not the murderer. Still
believing that Clark was really the
man wanted in Portland, Schallock
had the suspect photographed and

One thing that strengthens Schal
lock in his belief that Clark is the
brutal murderer of the Holzman gill
is that when he was first arrested
he asked the deputy if he was want-
ea in Portland. Later he asked
i Schallock to allow him to escape and
stated that if the officer would give
him a chance he woulrl make himself
"scarce about these diggings." Be
cause of this show of anxiety about
wanting to know if he was wanted
in Portland, Schallock believes there
is something which he does not wish
to come out in connection with his
past lite and he will hold him until
he knows positively there is no
chance that Clark is the Holzman
murderer. Klamath Northwestern.

GOOD FOR PAPER PULP.
Despised .lack Pine Found to Have
According to reports issued by the
! government, the much despised
"jack pine" and the nearly as useless
j scrub hemlock can and will make
ideal paper pulp, and that such por
tions as are favored by timbered
areas of these woods will be eventu
ally blessed instead of cursed.
The local forestry office has re
ceived samples of the paper made
from the pulps of the respective
trees. Aside from a slightly yellow
color, the paper is of as fine and
! smooth a texture as is the exhorbi-
tantly priced spruce. The papers
received are the results of the first
experiment and the government test
ers state that they will soon happen
upon a process that will remove the
color of the pine and leave the same
silken whiteness of the spruce.
Through this section jack pine Is
found in abundance. On account of
its grain the woo:l has no real com
mercial value and it is used entirely
as cord wood on that account. With
the establishment of a pulp mill, this
timber could be furnished on the
average of $1.6(1 per cord, while the
manufacturers of pulp are forced to
pay as higi as $12 per. cord for
spruce. Not only is the cost high
on spruce at this time, but the gov
ernment reports show that the sup
ply is fast becoming exhausted. Al
ready thousands of cords of this
wood are being shipped as ballast
from foreign countries.
With the substitution of jack pine
the making of paper will be reduced
in the manufacturing cost and a
great deal of heretofore waste tim
ber throughout the coast country
will be used. When such a time ar
rives, southern Oregon will bid fair
to a pulp mill a great Industry, em
