Obituary B. McArthur.
Bernard McArthur who died last Fri
day Feb. 22, 1901. was born in New York
State in 1832. At the age of 6 his family
removed to Canada, where he resided
until 15 years of age. Owing to bis pro
nounced anti-Catholic opinions be was
compelled to leave home and mate bis
way in the world alone. By his in
tegrity and energy he completed bis
ed uca' ion and soon engaged in business
for himself. He came to Grants Pass
in 1888 and took an active part in the
promotion of the welfare of the city and
did much to assist the poor in such a
quiet manner that little was ever known
of his kindness in that regard. He was
an active member of the Odd Fellows
for years, and put into every day life the
principles of that order.
Mr. McArthur was thrice married.
He leaves a widow in this city to mourn
his uealh. His five children by bis first
wife knew him to be a loving in
dulgent parent who took a mother's
place with them after the loss of their
own mother. Of his children Mrs. H.J.
Hobbs resides in this City, Mrs. II. L.
White lives in Ashland, Or., Mrs. L. L.
Eakiu in Kansas, George A. McArthur
in Wyoming and Lincoln A. McArthur
By his upright character he won for
himself the friendship of all those of
whom he came in contact, and it can be
truly said that Grants Pasa lias lost a
worthy citizen, the widow a devoted
husband, and the children a parent
whose precepts are worthy ol emulation.

We are having nice balmy spring

All spring birds are singing, the frogs
are also singing, the grouse are hooting,

We are about to have a new store at
Leland. Wilson, formerly of the firm of
Wilson & Virtue, is building a general
merchandise store. He will keep in
stock everything that is needed. This
will be an opposition store, something
that has been needed.
We have quite an influx of people in
our midst from the north and they have
brought with them the grip, so that
some of our people have the same.
Many of the people of Kinnevville have
theurip. Mrs Redflcld, proprietress of
the hotel is suAV-ring from that com
plain!. We are quite well pleased with the
eh ct ion of Mitchell as U. 8. senator,
hut we are much displeased and molli
fied Unit ti. W. Colviir, our representa
tive, should work to kill the bill to es
tahlish a mining bureau, just what the
people of Oregon need, After such
action, wo think the people will have
litllu use for him in the legislature.
Only for a corporation ring, he would
not have been elected.

Balsam in my grip. I take cold easily

men and young men, and tell them
confidentially what I do when I take

Rulei of the Road.
To ride a bicycle well means, in ad
dition to ability to manage the wheel, a
knowledge of both the writlen and un
written laws of the road. The rider who
observes the lollowing three funda
mental rules will have little difficulty :
1. Always keep to the right of the
center ol the road.
2. Always pass to the right ol a
vehicle, rider, or pedestrian approach
3. Always pass lo the left of a ve
hicle, rider, or pedestrian going in the
same direction as yourself.
A (ii-niln Hint.
In our style of climate, with Us sudden
changes of temiierature, rain, wind and
sunshine often inleimingled in a single
day, it is no wonder that our children,
fuenih am! relatives are so frequently
taken from us by neglected colds, half
the deaths resulting directly from this
caue. A bottle ol Ilufchee'e German
yrup Lept about Vour home for iiiime
diate use will prevent serious sickness, a
large doctor's bill, and ierhaps death,
by the use of three or four doses.

used to fret tired once in awhile and
declare I just wouldn't hold another

on my fine cushions.
"1 had just made up my mind to com

"You must be blind now," suggested
the cane seated piazza chair, looking
at the little white rocker, whereupon
she rocked more violently than ever to
hide her embarrassment.
"It was a young lady who had hurt
her ankle and come with her mother to
see the doctor. The old tramp jumped
up, and as I waathe most comfortable

did, hs went out a great deal. One
