POIU WINS BUT IiOSES
Henry Ford won and lost. It Is
claimed that under the .Michigan
law he can recover only $50 costs
from the Chicago Tribune. He was

people wanted to run him (or pres

not necessarily a brilliant man.
There is much agitation over the
country in regard to adopting the"
metric system of weights and meas

present measurement by weights,
ounces and quarts had Its origin in
Germany." (But can the American
public ne "re-educated?" It is

to prove that Ford is an anarchist.
In the general meaning of the word.

there are about fifty fires burning.
Several hundred people witnessed
the swimming contests and other
sports at Riverside park last evening
which, from start to finish, kept the
crowd stretching their necks to see
all that was going on. A number
of our people took well-filled bankets

The races were finished at 8
o'clock, after which the crowd was
entertained by a splendid concert by
the Grants Pass hand.
That the water contests were ap
preciated was proven by the large
number of people presont. We will
yet have a few weeks of good swim
ming weather. Iet's have another
carnival. T. P. Cramer, who had
charge of the affair, deserves much
credit for his untiring efforts and the
able manner in which the event
were carried through.
