DEATH- OF N. P. DODGE I
Prominent Citizen of Grants Pasa
Dies on Mondo-y.
Is. P. Dodge, ono of tho best known
and most universally esteemed citizeus
of Grants Pass, died at his home in
this city, on Monday forenoon. Ho
iiad b'n iu poor health for some
yesrs.- For tho past two weeks ho
had been confined to his bed and
during that time little hope ban been
entertained for his recovery. Several
years ago ho cxiH'i ienced a stroke of
paralysis nnd, while lie mudo a par
tial recovery, and was afterward, able
to attend somewhat to his business
interests, yet ho never fully recovered,
lie has since been subject to attacks
of heart trouble, some of them very
serious, and these have occurred more
frequently in the Jast few months.
Nathan Prentis-i Dodgo was born in
Kast Mont'i Tier, - Vt., February 8,
lSlil). Iu 1STJ ho removed to St.
Johnsbury, Vt., and iu 1SS4 to North
ern Idaho. Iu 1SST ho camo to Grants
Pass where he lias sinco resided. Ho
was postmaster in Grants Pass for six
years and afterward entered tho hard
ware business as a member of the linn
of Jewell & Podge. In later years,
he has devoted his attention to tho in
surance business. He was an esteem
ed member of tho Masonic fraternity
and during his residenco hero lias been
one of tho pillars of tho Presbyterian
Church in Grafts Past. His public
and private life wero without re
proach.uud his cheerful and pleasant
i disposition earned him uncomplain
ingly through all his alllictions. It is
'doubtful if another death has ever oc-
curred here which produced so wide
spread nnd general sorrow as that of
I Mr. Podge. Ho leaves a wife, Mrs.
jMary Podge of otir city.
The funeral services wero held on
! Wednesday afternoon at tho PreHby
! terian church and the interment took
place at the Odd Fellows cemetery
I The services were conducted by
j ltcv. Jtobt. Leslie. Tho business
I houses were closed from 2 to 4 o'clock
p. iu. nnd the. funeral was attended by
j a large concourse of people.
GENTLE SPRING IS HERE
The Welcome Queen Comes lo

Spring has come. ' Although tho
I frosty mornings yet produce a wintry

gentle Spring are evident everywhere,

Tunnel C&vei On Train
Freight train No. 222 was caught iu
a cavo iu tnnnel nine, between Delhi
and Sims, lust Thursday morning.
The accident wus a peculiar ono. The
freight trinn was running through the
tunnel when threo of tht! cars jumisd
the track. The jar of tho wreck
against the walls, which had been
loosened and softened by the recent
rains, caused about 300 feet of the
ftmnel to collapse. Luckily none of
the crew wero on that portion of the
train c aught in the cave in so no one
was hurt. Tho engine and about
half tho train wero through the tunnel
when the accident occurred.
The task of clearing up tho track
through tho tunnel was a big ono and
seriously blocked trafllc on the road
for several davs.
