GRANTS PASS. JOSEPHINE COUNTY, OREGON, THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 1901.
Rogue River valley is full of Oil,
Natural Gas, .Artesian water and
other valuable minerals.
Nature's storehouse is bulging
out with wealth and only needs the
magic hand of man to unlock and
reveal the hidden wealth stored up
for the use of the Twentieth Cen
tury. Our arid lands will produce won
ders if we once can procure Arte
sian water to supply abundance of
water with which to irrigate.
Oil and Natural Gas aie the
greatest economical fuel of this
generation. Shall we let it be dor
mant here in Rogue River valley,
while olher sections of the country
are using nature's storehouses?
Oregon cannot be beaten any
where in the world, for natural Gas,
Oil or Artesian water. Rogue River
valley is truly the Italy of America.
Here we have the 6nest climate, the
best apples, the largest peaches
and the prettiest girls.
Shall the people of Grants Pass
forever continue to drink the slime
and slush and sewage that pours
into Rogue river while we can have
the best of Artesian mountain water
by the very simple process of dril
ling a few hundred feet?
What a beautiful city Grants
Pass would be if there were a stream
of pure Artesian water flowing
along each side of her streets.
It is tho intention of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. to
soon begin active operation of dril
ling a number ot wells to the depth
of 1000 feet to ascertain the pres
ence of Natural;;Gas, Oil, Artesian
water and other valuable minerals.
They are now bonding land in
and around Grants Pass. Within
the next six months they will be
drilling on some of the property
they have bonded for that purpose,
They intend if it is possible, to
supply the city with plenty of pure
Artesian water before the coming
The Oregon Natural G:is. Oil
& Mining Co requests .tl! fanners
and property holders to give them
the privilege of drilling one or more
wells on their property. They
will give a percentage of the
outpuc of ihe wells to patties
granting the privilege,
In order to get the people of
Grants Pass and Josephine county
interested in Natural Gas, Oil, and
.Artesian water they will give all of
theui a chance to subscribe for a
few shares of the capital stock of
the companv on very liberal terms.
Suppose you take a few shares of
the capital slock of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. of
the par value of $t per share.
You pay 10 per cent, down, 40 per
cent, when the machinery is set up
and is ready to begin operation and
the remaining 50 per eeut. when
they strike a flow of natural gas,
oil or artesian watet or have drilled
to the depih of 1000 feet. If they
strike oil, natural gas or artesian
waer you have the option of tak
ing ten times as many shares asyou
subscribe for. They will pay you
back all the money received from
you if they fail to drill a well as
You are invited to thoroughly
investigate their proposition. You
have nothing to lose but every
thing to gain. If you are a cap
italist it is a safe investment. If
you are a fanner or property holder
it will pay you to invest as it will
enhance the value of your place a
hundred fold more than you invest
if they should find cither oil, gas
or water near your property. If
you are a working mail it will pay
you to take shares as this will open
up a vast and a new work for you.
The merchants and business men
should invest in shares in order to
start this enterprise. Professional
men, in fact all classes of people,
should take a few shares in this
vast and new enterprise and it will
be a help to all in Grants Pass and
Josephine county. If you cannot
take 100 shares you can talc- 50 or
ten shares. Remember every dollar
will be returned to you if the com
pany fails to drill a well as agreed
upon. The stocks are non-assess
able and fully paid up as they arc
used. The by-laws of the com
pany do not allow a debt to ex
ceed 1 per cent ot the capital.

gon, is a stockholder, a director
and the secretary of The Natural
Gas, Oil & Mining Co., who will

tion for stocks and will give any
information regarding the comvany

or more wells thereupon as you

GLORIOUS MUSICAL CONVENTION.
Mtlody Prevails and the Musical Cup Over
flowtth. A Grand and
The Fourth annual musical convention
of the Rogue River Valley choral union
is now a thing of the past but ita pleas
ant memories will linger long in the
hearts of those who sang or played or
listened. From every point of view its
success was thorough and complete,
financially as well as otherwise, for
while former conventions have created
deficits this one has paid for itself with
a little to spare.
As a musical 'success it stands out
from among the preceding conventions
with emphatic assertion of Its excellence.
The number of renowned artista attend
ing, the character of the selections
rendered, the vigor of the chorus and
the high ability of the musical director
combined to produce the most gratifying
results, while the harmony and perfect
gooll feeling that prevailed among the
delegates promoted the pleasure of the
musical season and made possible the
grand results that came to pass.
Nouls tlut hungered and thirsted for
music were tilled and now the compla
cent, gratified and satisfied expression
on every musical face denotes a fullness
of musical joy and delight in a degree
very seldom attained.
The success of the convention is due
in a great measure to the fact that all
from the' director to each individual
member of the chorus, orchestra or com
mittees, carried out the part that came
to them without flinching. No one
shirked, backed out, got tick or stayed
away, but every one camo smiling to
the mark and assisted whole-heartedly.
The director's ability and the musicians'
excellence could never have achieved
the grand results unaided by the united
enlhusiitHui and spirit of the whole
The array of high musical talent
present at this convention was superior,
at least in the number of the artists lo
that of previous similar occasions. Rev.
F. Doiuiuic and A. T. Baldwin of Mt.
Angel are piano soloists of high culture
whose presence added greatly lo the
musical quality of the occasion and also
rendered able apiluiu't in the orchestra,
Mr; Baldwin playing tho cornet and
Father Dominic Ihe viola. Signor and
Mrs. D. Bofla and Berlins Bofl'i were
valuable acquisitions to the convention,
the professor and his daugtilur being
violin artists of great merit, while Mrs.
Bofla is an fX and pleasing soprano
soloist. Mrs. Bofla, it may be men
tioned, Is an accomplished linguist,
speaking four languages besides the
English. M. O. Warner, whose ability
with the 'cello is widely rucogniied,
attended and gave added excellence to
the orchestra, Mrs. K. C. Brooks of
Oakland, Cal., soprano soloist, tendered
axsistanco, the value of w hich is beyond
Prof. W. Gilford Nash of Eugene, who
officiated as director, filled that position
with great ability and credit, as the
excellent work of the chorus evidences.
Prof, Naeh is an accouiplinhed musician
and knows how to make himself the
center and dispenser of harmony for
hirus and orchostra. The able and
faithful ansistancrt of the accompanist,
Mii-s Belle Robinson, during the con
vention and the preceding practice, con
duced to the success of the event in a
degree which it is impossible to over
estimate. To her Las fallen a double
measure of the hard work of the con
vention. Her reward ia the gratitude
and appreciation of those attending.

Dr. Burnett gained many compliments
by his rendering of the base solo in
"Spirit Immortal" in a voice of clarity,
power and musical quality. Miss Esther
Hilsby sank in her accustomed rich and
full contralto and was, as always,
favorite with the audience. Mrs. K. C.
Brooks captivated the listeners with Hit
first note of her magnificent voice and
held their appreciation in a inrasure
which increased with her every appear
ance. Hir's is an active voice and
gi''es a Herniation of infinite energy.

applause. The piano solo of Father

Al this matinee, the traditional
lethargy of Grant Bats audiences was
smashed to fragments and the volume
of applause which greeted every number
testified to a very abandonment of
appreciative delight. The program was
virtually doubled as nearly every num
ber received an encore. The specially
pleasing featuie ot the entertainment
wae the violin solo ol Bertina Boffa, a
little girl of about ten years. Her
mastery of the instrument it marvelous
and the audience was to taken by sur
prise and delight that their appreciation
knew no bounds. When Bertina' bow
swept the strings, living ecstasy sprang
from them. The tone was to exquisite
and the manipulation uf the instrument
so perfect that it seemed the very toul
of music to the listeneri, and little
Bertina and her violin teemed but
different part of one musical entity.
Tears came to the eyea ol many while
she played. Mr. Brook tang In her
most pleasing manner and In response
to an encore gave an imitation of the
vocal effort ol small children. The
imitation was absolutely perfect and

The enthusiasm ol the afternoon re
mained with the audience and encores
were the rule at this concert, as the
excellence of the program throughout
richly deserved. E. C. Suman gained
additional fume at a voclaist by hit solo
in which hi resonant voice showed to
fine advantage. The piano solo of A. T,
Baldwin, with accompaniment by the
orciiestra, was one nf the finest numbers
of the whole convention. The duet by
Mrs. Brookt and Miss Silsby was a
triumph of melody and vocal skill. Thj
final tolo of Mrt. Brooks was twice
encored and as a last number, she con
seuted to repeat her amusing Imitations
ol the afternoon. The tenor solo in
"Sanctut" was beautifully given by 11
C. Kinney. Miss Bertina Boffa repeated

hearts of all listeners in the afternoon.
