Melon Raising in
Growing watermelona has become a
most important branch of the agTirnl
tnml industry of Josephine county. As
'a watermelon growing section, this
conuty is not excelled by any other
part' of tho state, and from a point of
excellence an regards the flavor aud
general qnality of the fruit, Joso
plane county can hold its own with
any district on tho Pacific coast. Peo
ple who have eaten melons from the
fields of Dixie and partaken of the big
fellows from the Joseph ino farms,
declare that from a Btandpoiiit of
quality, the Joeephino melons easily
hold first place. The climatic and
general conditions afforded iu this
conuty, especially iu the Rogue river
bottom hinds are perfectly adopted to
the growing of melons. Tiie land is
loamy, caBily broken, easily culti
vated, aud productive. It never dries
ont bnt is always moist, something
that is absolutely esseutial to the
growing of big melons. The seeds
can be planted early usually from the
10th to the 15th of May and it is not
often that they are nipped by the late
frosts. The summer nights are
warm warmer than in any other
part of the state and the melons
grow fast and furious when they get
started, and they are not long in get
About the 10th of August the first
Josephine melons begin to mako their
appearance, an from that time on
until the frosts of October tho people
of Grants Pass and vicinity, and
those towns aud cities that are
fortunate, enough to receive shipments
of the lucions fruit-from here, enjoy
a treat such as they can havo nowhere
Josephine county is well and favor
ably kimwn over all parts of the
Northwest from tho quantity of the
watermelons that it aliijis each season.
Each summer from 25 to CO cars of
melons are shipped from Grants Pass
to northern points. All told, there
are over 600 acres of melons grown
in Josephine comity. They are grown
iu fields of from 25 to UK) acres and
the men who plant and cultivate the
fields are engaged almost entirely in
the melon business alone. It is a
business that requires a good amount
of work, but no more than any other
agricultural vocation rightly fol
lowed. It is a jmyitig business and in
this respect is growing bi tter with
each passing season. Melons, of late,
are practically liccntniiig a staple
article. People look and wait for
them and buy them as they do apples,
(leaches, pears, or any other fruit. A
few years ago they were eaten only as
a delicacy. That is Hot true any
more, and as a result of this the de
mand is becoming almost unlimited.
Iu conversation with some of the
leading Josephine melon growers
this week, a Courier representative
was told that the demand for melons
this season is better than it has ever
been before. Those who are shipping,
find no trouble to disjHiso of the fruit
before reaching Albany or Salem.
Very few carloads have got as far
north as Portland this year, the de
maud being great enough to clean out
every car before they get any farther
The method usually employed by
the Josephine melon shijisrs is to
consign the shipment to themselves
and ship by local freight with the
privilege of stopping over at any
point. In this way the cars are side
tracked at Rosebnrg, Oakland, Cot
tage Grove, Eugene and other way
points .and the melons sold from the
car door. A car of Josephine melons
needs no glaring posters to draw a
crowd. Nothing but a cirrus will
draw a bigger crowd of men and boys
than a car of Josephine or "Grants
Pbss melons" as they are known
through the Willamette Valley, and
the way these melons disappear, is
enough to excite the envy of a
The shipments of melons from
Grants Pass will tie twice as large
this year as It was last Hoce 28 cars
have already U-en shipped and the
acaaon is just at its height. In fact,
the big melons are just now coming
on. The Courier man was shown a
carload this week that left this city
for the north, many of the melons of
which would weigh 40 or SO pounds.
Among tho leading Josephine
coouty shipivit are T. P. Lee, R. A.
N. Reynier, J. Christie and IL B.
Alrerson. Messrs. Christ io and Roy.
mer are each preparing a carload of
big melons for tho state fair. If
these big melons don't win a modal
it will be because size aud quality
count for naught

Quo of tho sweetest, one of the most
successful gospel singers in the evan
gelist io Held to-day is Prof. W. a
Weuden, who lias been associated a
grout deal of lato witli Rev. Dr. J.
Wilbur Chapman In his evangelistic
labors, No'ono has over heard Pro
foHsor Weeden sing "My mother's
prayer," and tell the story of it,
without being profoundly moved. Tho
musio for the song is his owu compo
sition, and the words were written)
at his suggestion, by his friend and
co-luborer, Rev. J. W. VauDevontor,
and omliody the sweet singer's per
sonal experience. Ho sings with a
tender pathos when ho voices the first
" I never can forget the day
I heard my mother kindly say:
'You're leaving now my tender
Remember, sou, your mother's
prayor. ' "
Aud tho song and tho singer touch a
resjionsive chord when they tell of
finding mother's God in answer to
mother's prayer; but more appealing
than all is the story of the midnight
rido across Pennsylvania to the old
homo in Ohio, in response to the tel
egraphic summons to the side of the
deathbed of mother, with its picture
of the youthful hand clasped by that
of the aged saint on tho brink of
eternity, and the promise that mother
exacts from her boy to meet her In
glory, and the loving answer, "I
will," to mother's appeal that her
son, "saved by grace," shall labor
earnestly to bring Into tho fold the
two brothers "out of Christ," so that
they, also, may meet her in "the bet
ter land." Audit all finds a fitting
climax in tho last chorus:
"Oh, praise tho Lord for saving
We'll meet np yonder face to faoe ;
The home above forever share
Iu answer to my mother's prayer. "
Mothers with boys away from
Christ, keep on praying I Your sons
may yet rlso np to win others to Jeans
by song aud story, "In answer to
