ProfO'Gara Estimate Output Will He 50O Cars, "We are about to pick the finest fruit crop in the history of the Rogue rived valley," said Professor O'Gara. county pathologist, "and I might add that this year's pears and apples will be in a class by themselves through out the world. "In Bear Creek orchard I maintain there is the finest pear crop per tree that has ever been grown. On 1,000 trees there will be 10,000 boxes, an average of ten boxes per tree; the fruit is perfect, large size, and every tree is uniform. "Picking begins today In the Dag gett orchard and by August 5 the Burrell, Bear Creek, Bingham and Carpenter orchards will be under way. I estimate a crop of from 125 to 150 cars of pears, with quality, size andeneral condition far ahead of anything that has heretofore been produced in this section. "The result is due to climatic con ditions, plenty of soil moisture, mild temperatures, absence of early frosts and consistent spraying. In many orchards there is not a worm to be found. "The apple crop will break all rec cords. The trees are propped up all over the valley, many apples being sized already. I estimate a total yield of between 500 and 600 cars, or between 300,000 to 400,000 boxes. "In short, nearly half a million l . .. . r 1 1 .. : . . c i . I uuacb ui nufciie river nun win ije shipped out of the valley this year in addition to the hay, potatoes and miscellaneous farm produce. The fruit will demand the highest mar ket price because of its quality. Such a condition certainly assures in creased prosperity throughout this region." CRIMINALITY SHOUT. Jackson County Itastile Has Only Five Inmates. Criminality has suffered a great decline in Jackson county in the past year, as is shown from the present number of jail inmates and the num ber of criminal cases docketed for the coming grand jury. At the pres ent time only five are incarcerated in thf county bastile, one of which is serving time for larceny and will be released in September. All of the other cases are for larceny. Last year at this time the jail was crowded with 14 prisoners, whose crimes ranged from larceny thruogh forgery up to assault. In addition to that number, ten more were released on bail in 1911 until the grand jury met. while in 1912 only four are out on baH. - "This year," says Louis Eaton, the jai'or. "has been an exceptionally dull one in the jail business. I have lived in Jacksonville for several years and never remembered the county jail being so nearly vacant in August as it is this year." The grand jury will sit August 2C. and unless August furnishes several criminal cases, that docket will be exceptionally short. GAYNOR OKI) KItS PROBE. Conditions in New York to Be Thor.

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 night. 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. ASTORIA FURNISHES POLE.

Enders, Jr., Succeeds l allier in The Hull ill Add Com plete New Lines. 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 Hollywood, Cal. Wilu West Show.

HUNTER KILLS STEER. Owner Now Says He Will Go Hunt ing for Game. M. 1". Hanley suffered the loss of a yearling steer last week, evidently at the hands of an amateur hunter who was without doubt hunting deer out of season. The steer was shot and left, and had been dead two or three days when found. "Evidently the shooting was done by an amateur hunter," states Mr. Hanley, "who was out for deer. I think I will do a little hunting my self this season and there will b trouble when I meet with the man who can't tell a bald-faced steer from a deer." Pictures are all going dirt cheap at the fire sale at the East Side Pharmacy. CLARK STILL HEM). Man in Klamath County Jail Sus-IN-ctcU of Brutal Murder. Bacon Clark, the man arrested here more than two weeks ago be cause of his attentions to little girls, Is still being held in the county jail with no definite charge hanging over him. 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 Bent this to Portland for better iden tification by the Portland officers. Although this picture was sent out more than a week ago, nothing has been heard from the Rose cifv in answer. In the meantime Schal lock is sure the man In iail herw iu I the Holzman murderer and is hold ing in in iiiii ii u is ueiiniteiy estab lished that he is or is not. 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.

Q J. A 1 'J. ($1 J J. , , ,$ J, GOOD FOR PAPER PULP. Despised .lack Pine Found to Have Value. 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 ploying many men. ASHLAND MOST BEAUTIFUL. Clarence True YiIson So Seaks of Granite City. Rev. L. C.

Otto and Alfred Pilgrim, aged 10 and 11 years respectively, caused a pathetic scene in the county court room Wednesday afternoon, when with tears streaming down their faces they said good-bye to X. W. Cole of this city, who has kept them r the past year, and were taken away by Sherirr Jones to b sent away to the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society in Portland. The decree to that efrect was all that Judge Neil could give as the little fellows had bocoine too much of a burden to Mr. Cole, and no one had volunteered to assume the responsibility. A year ago the parents of the boys left them in this city. Since that time the parents have not been heaid from and Mr. Cole has clothed and kept them in the city schools in hopes that the parents might return and claim them.
