Ashland Record; :
Undoubtedly,- this has been a
good year for cherries. A few days
go Mrs. Taylor. Porter furnished
this office with a limb of fine cher
ries that would be hard to beat in
any country. The name of the
cherry is not known, but it resem
bles the Royal Ann. The tree is a
seedling and has attained a large
growth although not of great age.
The secret of its rapid growth lies
in the fact that it was planted over
an eld well that had been filled up,
thus giving its rents ample oppor
tunity to reach out. If this theory
be aorcect, considering the perfec
tion of the cherries that reached
this office, we are inclined tolnsist
that in future cherry trees te slant
ed over old wells. .
Last Sunday Dick Zahn, of Alsea,
Killed what ia reported to nave been
the largest cougar ever killed in
that section. He was assisted by
his fai'hfol dog, "Grover." This is
the twentieth cougar that .Grover
has been instrumental ia bringing
to its doom during the past eight or
nine years. Aside from the cougars
that he has helped to destroy the
o:d dog has brought to death in
numerable bears, wildcats and vari
ous other am nals in the meantime.
Grover is quite deaf, but his soent
ia still keen and he is as full of the
spirit of the chase today as he ever
was. It is doubtful if another dog
in Oregon bis a better reaord for
ootigar thin has this faithful canine
of Mr. Zahn. The cougar had.been
killing goals and sheep belonging
to the zahn boys.

In a paper read before the Brit
ish Congress of Tuberculosis a
few days ago, the rioted German
professor said that human tuber
culosis and bovine tuberculosis
were radically different diseases,
and that he had amply demon
strated that cattle could not be
infected with human tuberculosis.
The counter proposition thai hu
man beings were, not liable to in
fection from bovine tuberculosis
was hard to prove, the doctor
said, owing to the difficulty of
experimenting upon human sub
jects, but personally he was satis
fied such was the case, and he
recited at length post mortem
evidence " supporting this view.
Dr. Koch said if. this point were
conceded, it remained to deter
mine the chief source of contag
ion. Continuing he said that human
immnnity from bovine infection
disposed of the belief of infection
through dairy products, and he
considered this source of danger
so slight as to be unworthy of
Hereditary was only an unim
portant factor in tho transmission
of tuberculosis, though the con
trary had long been believed.
Dr. Koch said the chief danger
ot contagion lay in the sputum
of consumptive patients and that
a remedy was to be found in a
law preventing the consumptive
from ' strewing contagion about

Bat the waters flow on forever.
The mists have risen, the sun breaks
'Tis high noon on the river ;
The sea-fowl flock from over the way,
There comes the breath of new-mown bay
And the waters flow on forever.
The western sun has gone to bed,.
The western sky is golden and red
'T is evening on the river ;
The evening damps cemein from the. sea,
Tho cattle come homeward across the lea,
Aud the waters go on forover.
O, gray dawn! And white, white mist !
And birds that are mute and still ;
O, wild west wind, where'er yon list,
To go at your own sweet will;
O, golden sua and sea-fowl flown,
And cattle and meadow and home,
It takes you all, yes every one,
To make a day on the river.
