FOURTH OF JULY CELE
BRATION. An earnest endeavor is being made
by those who have the matter in
charge to make the Fourth of July
celebration in Grants Pass , this year,
a "hunirner" in every respect. As pre
viously announced, both the fourth
and fifth will be celebrated or some
thing will be doing the whole of both
The Grants Pass baud will furnish
ninsic on the fifth. The Hertford band

alone to Josephine comity citizens to
be in Grants Pass during the celebra
tion but to all Southern Oregon. We
have ample hotel accommodations for
all, and will do our best at entertain
ing all who come.

events, liberal prizes will be given.
A new feature for Grants Pass at
loaat will be tho rock-drillitig con

are all getting ro,udy to have a repre
sentative in this contest. Tho illumi
nated street parado will bo a gorgeous
feature. This will be conducted by

city. The baseball games of the two
days will be the best seen in southern
Oregon this season. On the d;iy of
the fonrth a game will be played be
tween the Alerts and a selected team
consisting of picked men from all of
the Jackson county nines. This game

OUTLOOK FOR FRUIT.
Tho report of Horticultural Com
missioner Carson, for the third dis
trict, comprising the counties of
Douglas, Jackson, Klamath, Jose
phine, Coos, Curry and Luke, is in
part as follows:
From a personal inspection mid tho
best data to be had in this district the
following estimate of the frnit crop to
June 1 is as near the facta as it is
possible to muko an estimate. We
have not had any extremely low tem
perature during thu Spring to injure
fruit of any kind. The bloom on all
varieties was profuse ; but on fertiliza
tion it will be noted that the apple and
pear seemed to suffer, while the peach
fertilized and set a large crop. Dur
ing the time the peach, almond, cher
ry and prune were 111 bloom the
weather was warm, dry and pleasant,
the honey bee was active and these
varieties were projicrly fertilized. As
the apple and 'ur began blooming the
weather became cold and net, and
continued so during the blooming
period ; honey bees were not active,
hence pollen wns not distributed
sufficiently to fertilize them, which,
in my opinion, accounts for the small
crop, Orchard men have sprayed
much more this year than usual. At
present date weather rond ition are
favorable to growth. The estimates
to Jane 1 are aa follows: Apples, B5;
almonds, 90; pears, 2.'); strawberries,
100; peaches, 90; blackberries, 100;
prunes, 70; raspberries, 100 ; cherries,
TO; currants, 100. v

The Stream That Drains This Valley
Has Its Source in Crater Lake,
tho World's Scenic Wonder.
Rogue river could havo had a more
euphonious name, but perhaps a no
more appropriate oua Excepting the
Deschutes there is not another stream
in Oregon that is by any means en
titled to the namo Rogno, as 'the
Southern Oregon river that possesses
it. From its source in Crater Lake
Park to tho sea, tho Rogue is one con
tinual, rushing torrent, with but a
few moments pause uow aud then as
its waters widen to cross the valley
or imuse for an instant before making
a leap over a waterfall or a rush down
a rapid. The scenery through which
tho Rogue river passes on its journey
from Crater lako to the sea is not sur
passed by any stream in America. It
is a continually changing scene The
little brook that dashes merrily over
the rocks aud pebbles down Mount
Mazama quickly becomes a roaring
torrent. Deep gorges, rock-walled
canyons, rapids and waterfalls char
acterize tho Rogno throughout its
Just how the Rogue came by its
name ia a matter of conjecture. One
of two things, or possibly both of
them aro accountable for it. These
aro tho madness of, its waters and the
wickedness of tho Indians that dwelt
along its banks. This tribe of In
dians wero called tho Rogno Rivers,
but they wero named from the stream.
Tho Indians called tho stream
"Trushi.y which nieaiiB "rogno."
The French were the first jieoplc to
iiumo tho Rogue river; they were
trappers from the Hudson Bay
Couiiiany at Vancouver. They did not
call the stream Roguo, however, or
its equivalent in French, as that
would havo been "Ta riviere uux Co
quins." Thu French called it "Rouge
Riviere," which means " red river, "
given it because of the reddish tinge
tho water of tho stream iiossosses in
tho winter timuon account of the
sedinieut it brings down from the
mountains. There is no doubt but
that tho French named the streamas
many of our geographical funnies in
this state wero bestowed by the
French, such as Coquillo, Thu Dalles,
Deschutes and Malheur.
The French culled it "Rouge Riv
iere" and the Englishmen mispro
nounced it and culled it Koguejriver,
which was an easy mistake to make
when the features of the streams are
taken into consideration.
At a meeting of the Territorial
legislature in 1H.VI, it was enacted
that tho numu of the stream be chang
ed from Rogue river to "Gold river,"
which wus considered by the pioneer
legislators to bo moru euphoneous and
appropriate. This iinnio, howover,
never achieved currency outside of the
halls in which it was suggested.
Rogno river it has always been and
will always be.
The upH-r half of Rogue river is
best known. This is the srlion
along which tho old Fort Klamath
road leads from Rogue river valley,
and which has been traversed for the
past 60 years. Tho lower half of tho
stream is an unexplored wilderness of
rugged mountains aud dis-p forests,
much of which has never been trod by
Traveling up tho Roguo from tho
railroad one finds the valley growing
more narrow and the farm houses few
er, while the river grows swifter,
the forests denser and the mountains
more rugged. At a distance of 60
miles from tho valley the Rogue nar
rows to a width of 75 feet and flows
with fearful rapidity between stoop
and rocky walls. This long and deep
gorge is the Rogue's road through the
Cascades. Through this thu river lias
an average full of 200 feet to the mile.
Through this gorge the water rushes
at times down a steep declivity, then
b ailing liiiis-tuniisly fnmi risk to
risk, lushing itself into fury and
foam, w hirling in eddies or resting a
nioiiii lit in some protected liasiu be
fore plunging over a cataract, only
to jiuusu again Hliil repeat the same
w ild phantasies till the ij u valley-
Along the Rogue in these w ild soli
tudes game is plentiful. Bear, deer
and elk nil haunt the regions of the
Upper Rogue, and often s rinit them
selves to bo seen from the road. The
Upir Roguo iwsscs through thi
nnest forests of sugar pine in the
world. These great tree are from H
to !(0 fi-ct ill circumference and rise to
a height of S.M) feet. They are excell
ed only by the "big trees" of Cali
fornia. Farther up the canyon and nearer
Crater hike grout column or pyra
mids of cement arise from the bottom
of the gorge. Those columns or
''noodles" are 40 or 60 fw t through
at the base and attain a height of 100
or more feet. The presence, of these
strange formal ions is easily explained.
They were composed of a harder sub
stanoo than that which surrounded
them and did not yield o readily to
the action of the water aa it cuts its
way deeper and deeper into the gorgv.
Win n within 1 miles of is source
evidence of volcanic action aro seen
along the Ilogne. Tho character of
the vegetation changes and only those
plants are found which can accommo
date themselves to the higher altitude.
Thu Rogue, which is but a brook in
this region, dashes merrilv over
boulders of imiiuce and lava.
One more mile aud the source is
reached Crater hike. Here the trav
eler can well rest and stand entranced
ou the brink of this once mighty cauld
ron aud gaze with silent awe into the
blue depths of the now majestic lake.
No other river in the world can claim
so grand a source.

to the U. S. ship Pensacola and the
training ship Independence.
Ashland; William J. Virgin, ap
prentice, 8rd class; Alouzo Mills,
fireman, 2nd class; Merlo H. Riley,
apprentice, 3rd class; Earl Clay Jack
son, apprentice, Srd class.
Theso boy who are enlisted as ap
prentice of the third clans, will bo
first sent to tho naval training school
at Goat Island, where they have a
course of instruction and drill for six
months. The instruction comprises
the elementary branches taught in the
public school. They receive ft a
month as pay during this time, but
ouly a part of it is given to them as
pocket money, tho remainder being
placed to their credit. After six
months they are transferred to a train
ing ship, where they are required to
serve nine mouths before they become
full men-'o-war'a-men on full pay.
Years ago, that ugly mid venomous
reptile, the rattlesnake, was plentiful
in southern Oregon, but liko the Indi
an, ho cannot survivo civilized condi
tion and in all the more fully populat
ed regions ho is now a rare curiosity.
But in thinly settled regions and
especially in the vicinity of dry and
rocky hills, ho ia still found, though
nowhero is tho species anywhere near
so numerous as it was years ago.
Tho old residents of the little valley
where Grant Pass is now located, can
well remember when rattlesnakes wore
plentiful and common. In thoao day
It was profitable to inspect a hen' nest
thoroughly beforo reaching in to gath
er tho eggsas it wa likely to con
tain some untlesirotl occupant. By
instinct the barefooted children shun
ned dry brnsh heaps and similar rep
tilian retreats. At tho little old
school house near old Grant Pass it
was nothing very uncommon for rat
tlesnakes to tie found ou the playground
itself. In Buoh cases they would bo at
tacked by tho youngsters with a fierce
zoal that seldom stopis-d short of com
plete annihilation. Barefooted young
ster walking by twilight in the warm
dnst of the inneh travelled stage road
were liable to hear a warning "slzz"
that would send tho small heart into
the throat and canse a backward lea)
that would be a credit to an athlete.
The writer has personal knowledge
of one instance where a rattlesnake
crawled through a hole in a kitchen
floor and insconced himself snugly in
the woodbox behind the stove. Sim
ilar instances, almost without nnmber,
might be recalled by the old residents.
The peculiar bnr.z, the rattlesnake's
warning note, once heard, is never
forgotten. Thero aro sounds thnt are
similar. Thero is a certain weed, the
rattle of whoso needs in their pods
will often set the nerve ou edge,
but when the genuine sound of the
rattle is heard, there is never any doubt
or indecision in the mind of tho hear
er and it may also be said with truth
that there is nothing morn conducive
to muscular agility.
The rattlesnake Is the iiicnruation of
ugliness. His broad flat head with
tho wicked little eyes, his stubby and
ungraceful form, the coarse arragenient
of his colors and the air of cold, un
feeling malice which is a prominent
tHirtiou of his 'make-up, unite to form
an apiearaiir-o that would glvo an or
dinarily nervous Jsriton tho horrors.
When a colled rattlesnake is prodded
with a stick, he operates his rattle
with such dessrate viciousness that
it seems as though the whole snake
wero tingling and vibrating as though
made of wire springs.
The natural implacable foe of the
rattlesnake is tho hog. Hogs devour
rattlesnakes with a contemptuous dis
regard of their venom and it ia well
known that where hogs run at large
the rattlesnakes msm dixupsur.
In this climate the bilo of the rut
tlosnake has very seldom proven fatal
and it seems that the venom dis s not
possess the deadly chnrucer which il
docs in many hs-alitiea. As far us
the more fully settled jsirtions of
southern Oregon are concerned, the
rattlesnake is now virtually extinct.
CAT ADOPTED CMH K.
At Carnival Corner, Duyton, there
lives a cat of many colors, says tin
Herald. Not long since a little kitten
was found one morning In her sh op
iug box. The cat had previously tak
en much interest in a motherless
chick. When the chick "came off his
perch" that morning he spied the kit
ten ; the chick js-epod and the kitt-n
meowed. They soon became the best
of friends. While the mother cat was
in the box caring for her kitten, the
chick would ait on the edge of the
box. Following night the three wore
found huddled together. This con
tinued several nights, and then tin
cat, probably displeased, moved her
kit to other quarters, and tho chick,
profi-ring hia old most to thodcR.-rt. ri
cat'a nest, again returned to it. Not
long after the kitten mysteriously
disappeared, aud then wero loft kit
toilless cat and a hen less chick at Car
nival Corner. Tho cat now delight
lying in the grass watc hing the chick
as it feeds about.
