P. H. Harth & Son
Last week southern Oregon and north
ern California were visited by a snow
storm of very uuusual proportions.
The full of snow at Yreka, Montague,
Sisaon and other northern California
towns was reported as almost un
precedented. The S. P. railroad was
blocked from Ashland fo Dunsmuir and
all trains were stopped for three days,
In Yreka, it is reported that men were
paid $2 per hour for shoveling snow from
buildings. Ashland had 12 inches of
snow, Jacksonville 12 inches, Med ford
6, Gold Hill, two feet. Grants Pass had
a scant half Inch early Friday morning,
though it melted immediately. With
snow both north and south of us, we
have been particularly favored, though
it is doubtful if there is another point
in the state which is naturally freer
from snow and a'.l manner of Inclement
weather than Grants Pans.

Griffith, the Hypnotist.
Griffith, the hypnotist, who has leased
the opera, bouse for the present week,
is being given a good attendance each
evening. His hypnotic exhibitions are
remarkably interesting and the earnest
ness with which bis subjects follow his
suggestions leaves small doubt as to the
genuineness of the performance. On
Monday night he hypnotised one of his
attendants and sent him to sleep for
43 hours. The subject has been on ex
hibition during the time at Uarth's
clothing store where he has been the
object of much curious scrutiny on the
part of the public. This eveniug (Wed
nesday) he will be wakened and will
awake, so the professor says, in convuV
On Tuesday afternoon the professor
made his bliudfoldjdrive. Acommlieeof
eight business men were selected by the
Hot - Time
p pular voice from the assembled crowd.
Four of theso assumed charge of the
professor and took him into concealment
while the other four drove around town
by a circuitous route of nearly a mile
and secreted a small pocket knife under
some laundry packages in Tompkin's
barber shop. The professor was brought
forth from concealment, put a copper
wire round his head and was blind
fold. The wire was attached to the
hack and then passed to the com
mittee to hold. The professor, blind
fold, drove the team at a mad gallop
over the route, stopped at exactly the
right spot, entered the shop holding a
committee man by the band and found
the article immediately. It is worthy
of note that be did not follow the exact
routeof the committee all the way round.
It is suggested in explanation of this
that some of tho committee were them',
selves confused as to the route they had
taken. It was a most remaikablcex
