Grants 1'ass has voted the library,
by a small majority, it is trno, yet
enough to bo decisive, and it is a
cause for gratification that this result
has been accomplished. In onr
opiuion, it would have been a serious
ly disastrous measuro to tho town to
hare tarned this project down. WV
have always favored the library and
believed it will provo (o be one of the
greatest blessings and advantages that
tho town has over'enjoyed. There are
others who Ixdiove, differently as the
vote very plainly shows, but wu are
convinced that the opposition is based
mainly ou misunderstanding and mis
apprehension and Unit the greater
Hum 1st of those who have opHised it
will Isi converted ill its favor when it
is better known and understood lis
benefits will Imi for all, anil all may
enjoy them If they will.

THE PRESIDENT'S VISIT
Greets People From Rear 1'le.t-
foi m as Train Passes Through.
President Roosevelt and party passe d
through Grants Pass on Wednesday
ning with their special train.
Tho train passed through about nine
o clock and an lmuienso crowd was in
waiting at the depot on the mere
cliaiico of gelling a sight of him.
An effort bad been made to procure
a stop of a few minutes, in the
natural order of thing tho I n i j m r
engine would liave lieen
here, which would have
taken on
president lime for a word or two w ith
our people, nut. or some unexplained
reason, or perhaps without reason,
the helper was ordered to Woodvillo
and Was taken ou there. No stop was
made here, but the train ran very
slnwly through (ow n and the president
apjieared on the rear phitoriu, smil
ing and waving his hand to the en
thusiastic people. After the train
passed, many of the s opIe followed
ill the vain hope that il would slop at
tho water tank, but it did not. Two
bands were on hand to make music or
the occasion; our own home band and
that tho Allen slot k company who
itostjsjncd their entertainment till
after tho train went through. It was
pleased and gratified crowd that
left the depot foi the feeling was that
the president bail done tho lust be
could for us under the eirciimstauces.
Mr. Risisevelt's face has become so
familiar to us through his pictures
that ho looked like some old friend
and bis manner was full of friend
lilnms litul appreciation.

He Is a man of maivelously wide

Proper Refraction Was Ilia Sal
vation.
As you go through life, you meet
thousands w ho have inflamed, blood
hot, nasty looking eyes and they
tell you they have tried all kinds of
treatment for them. Did you ever
slop In think how few were cured
through treatment? Such eyes may
be cured for a few- days or weeks
through medical treatment but the
trouble iicnilv always returns. The
reason for this is that the cause lies
tin' refraction of eyes. The eye
itself may be ini,-liavn i t either of
the lenses niav magnify more in one
meridian than ill otlier. In either

I send this letter for the
double pnrHse of showing ntv appre

an optician ami at the same time
aiding some one, who ha sutTered as
I have from thfet'tive eyes and im
projvr eye ghi.vt s. For Ibe fct five
or six years my eyes were 111 a con
stant slate of irritation and intlaiiud
to such all extent that 1 do not be
lieve there were ever three suivcs-sive
d.ivs I was not cc.nivlle.l to u. medi
cine of some kind or hot applications
for the purpose of allaying the in-'
tl.inni.alioil. I Udieve all the time
I that the guuMei I was using were in
some way responsible for the eondl-
l tion of my eyes, and in hope of
bettering the condition of my eyes
I consulted several of the supposed
best opticians iu the city and some
physicians also, and had a half dozen
pair of spectacles made esjieciallr for
t me but without obtaining any ap-
. preciable relief. About ten mouths
ago I consulted you and obtained from
I you a pair of reading spectacles ana
also a pair for outdoor use and the
effect was marvelous. Within less
than a week the inflammation left my
eyes entirely and since that time I
have never experienced the slightest
difllculty with my eyes. Iu fact I
have hardly been conscious of their
existence. Yonr glasses have iu truth
accomplished that which you
promised for them namely that they
would make 'me see without trying
