BOARD OF TRADE MEETING.
A meeting of the Grants Pass board

First National Bauk Munduy evening.
Tho meeting was called priiiciilly
for the purpose of deciding whether
or not the board is to issue the de
scription pamphlets pledged some time
ago to the immigration bureau of
the Harriinan system.
In view of the fact that it lias been
and will be impossible to -erect the
exhibits building formerly planned
bythe board, it was decided a wise
plan to divert tlui funds subscribed
for this purpose towards issuing de
scriptive matter. Some $000 was sub
scribed, :100 of which was collected.
It was unanimously voted that the
entire building fund be appropriated
for advertising purposes and for pay
ment of the outstanding debts of the
board of trade.
Upon motion tho chair appointed
four committees of two each to
solicit the remainder of subscription
and get signatures to the constitution.

JUNKMEN TRY TO LOOT A SAFE.

A GRANTS PASS TOAD.
Grants Pass can put its toads op
with any iu tho world. A Courier
man can vouch for this, for ho holds
tho proof. A few days ago he saw a
big Grants Pass toad attempt to catch
a bird; aud he (tho Courier man, not
the toad) wasn't drunk either, at the
Tho circumstance hapis'Ued down
011 the banks of Roguo river. A little
Chickadee, or some such similar bird
was hopping anout on the ground aud
found himself suddenly courontedby a
largo toad of the liorus-Jnmpus
species. The big toad looked birdie
square iu the eye and birdie was hyp
uotized and finder tho big toad's in
fluence ero he was aware. Then the
toad bogau to creep uisiu his prey, but
never for an instant releasing his gaze
on birdie. Liku a cat, the toad crept
nearer aud then "gathering all his
strength for tho final spring, " as the
story books say about tho tigers, tho
toad liaH'd into the air and came
down pounce on birdie's back. But
tho toad lacked the claws and other
necessary implements for holding on.
Tho sudden jar brought birdie to
his senses aud with a few wild
shrieks, a sasmodio flutter or two
and flew away into the sky, leaving
the Courier man with cold inspira
tion wetting his brow.
