If your eyes are perfect, your vision
cannot be improved with glasses. If
your vision can be improved with
glasses, it is jositive proof that your
eyes are imperfect. If your glasses
are right, tho vision you have through
them cannot be made better. If the
vision you have through your glasses
can be made better, it is absolute
proof that vour glasses are not right.
J So many people are learning that
they can have their vision improved,
even though the glasses they have on,
came from what they supposed to !
the highest authority, from a stand

Memorial day Saturday, May 80, was
fittingly observed in Grants Pass
under tho auspices of the O. A. R.
Committees were appointed who took
charge of decorating the graves of
the departed heroes at the several
cemeteries. The exercises of tho day
were held iu the afternoon. The G.
A. R. aud W. R. C. assembled at the
A. O. U. W. hall and marched thence
to Sixth street near the court house
where the parado was formed, headed
by the baud and followed in orde
by the O. N. G.. G. A. R., W. R. 0.
and school children. Tho parade was
a long and imposing one and the music
rendered by the band was appropriate
and beautiful. The march was to the
bicycle grounds w here a largo crowd
collected to witness tho ceremony of
decorating a cenotaph in memory of
the uuknownii and unreturued dead,
with tho customary ritnnlistic exer
cises of the G. A. R. Tho school
children, under tho direction of the
W. R. C, assisted iu tho ceremonies
of decoration. The customary saluti s
wero fired and tho parado re-formed
to march to tho opera house to com
plete the exercise.
At the ojiera house, the memorial
service of tho G. A. R. was given and
appropriate music was furnished by
tho choir of tho Newman M. E.
olmrch. Recitations wero given by
Misses Cole and liiims and an oration
was pleasingly delivered by Miss
Abhie Stackpole. The address of the
day was given by Rev. T. A. Daught
ers aud was a very able product ion,
pleasantly delivered and with
thoughts in keeping with the spirit of
tho occasion. The song ''America"
sung by the entire assemblage, closed
MISS THOMAS' RECITAL
'Mrs. Wigusol the Cabbage Patch"
Was Highly Enjoyed
The audience which assembled on
Tuesday evening to listen to the reci
tal of Miss Laura Gertrude Thomas
wero delighted beyond measure ut the
entertainment which was presented to
them. Ill this city wo think of Miss
Thomas as a Grunts Pass girl ns she
was formerly a student in tho Grants
Pass schools. She is well known here
and her friends are many. She has
recently graduated from tho Columbia
school of oratory at Chicago anil her
talent as a reader has brought her the
highest compliment wherever she has
been heard. She was assisted iu her
entertainment hero by our local
musicians in several enjoyable num
bers. Tho opening number was a piano
duet "Love's Awakening, " by Mrs.
Adelia Harth Wilson and Miss Lucas.
Tho selection was well rendered and
was enjoyed with appreciation by the
audience. The vocal solo, "In a
Bower, " by Mrs. Margaret Meade
Barnes, was given in tho phasing
manlier which has made Mrs. Barm s
always a favorite w ith Grants Pass
audience and she was enthusiastically
encored. Miss Laura Parker, also one
of our favorite musicians, rendered
with charming skill and expression
tho piano solo, Schubert's "Impromp
tu." Miss Thomas first apicured iu the
amnsing skec'.h, "Cupid and Dicky,"
in which her powers of impersonation
appeared to advantage. But it was
in the five scenes of "Mrs. Wiggs of
tho Cabbage Patch" that her phasing
talent was most apparent. She carried
the audience with her and made them
see with their own eyes the scenes
which she depicted. J'he woes ami
Joys of the Wiggs family were real
and to sustain as Miss Thomas diil
the keen interest for so long a time
and .'lose with the audience so
absorbed iu the m hiii pr-si iitcil,
would he a severe le-d to the poweis
of any reader. It is the general
opinion that her superior has w vc r
been heard in Grants Pass.
Miss Thomas is charming in voice,
p ise ami nn.uniT. On the stage, i-he
is perfectly natural and unassuming.
In her selections, the portrayed scene
is always foremost iu the miinls of the
audience, while the personality of the
speaker is more dimly, though pleas

YET NO TRACE OF JONES
Further Effort Will Be Me.de to
There have boon no new develop
ment In the case of Henry Joue,
whose mystoriou disappearance a
chronicled iu oar last Issue. Those
who wore acquainted with Joue do
not accept tho possibility of the
suKgestion that he has left the country.
Ho was a man of good character and
standing, in good financial circum
stance. No solution present Itself
except that the man has boon mur
dered. Ill movements on the day ho
disupM'arcd are fully traceable np to
about half past, four iu the afternoon,
when he is said to have loft the
Oermanla saloon. Since that time
there 1 no trace of him whatever.
Ho intended to go out to the Dimlck
farm, but no one seem to know defi
nitely whether or not he even started
thither, though it is supposed that ho
did. His continued disappearance
seem to indicate foul play beyond a
doubt. The matter will not be
allowed to drop and it is thought that
Jackou county will lend assistance
to prosecute the search to the fullest
IKissible extent, a the missing man

THE FESTIVE WOODUCK
And Peculiar Ailment ol a Young
Man of This City
Among the loss honorable of tha
fanua of Southern Oregon I the wood
tick. Insignificant in size aui un
handsome in appearance, he has,
nevertheless, a capacity for compell
ing a recognition of hi importance
and is therefore a good subject for au
object lesson to the young as an ex
ample of the manner in which a
creator of little talent may become
fainou by mure persistence aud close
application to business. The wood
tick's specialty Is the operation of
boring himself into the hide of living
animals, hanging on with desperate per
sistence till .long after life ha dopurted
from his diminutive frame. Rancher
who have to.-k ou the range respect
the destructive capacities of wood-
ticks, for they will sometimes con
gregate on an animal, thin and weak
on the winter range aud rob him of
his life blood until he Ho down and
dies through sheer discouragement and
disgust No more sorrowful picture
can well bo imagined than that of a
lean, "ticky" yearling colt, with
ragged coat and rh )umy eyes, drag
ging out the weary winter day till
spring time or death shall mercifully
come to his relief.
The woodtiek does not limit his
operation strictly to four footed
creatures, a many Oregnuiau are
able to testify from experieuce. And
once a young man, whose home Is In
Grints Pass, as, he weut to aud fro
about hi dully toil, became aware
of a (trauge and uncomfortable palu
iu the region of hi stomach. The
pain was not violent but wo strange
ly persistent and, as time weut ou,
caused him some discomfort and con
siderable anxiety. Tho simple
remedies which he swallowed were
of no avail. Whatever he took, the
nin iu his stomach continued un
abated. Visions of apjiendioiti or
like ailmont flitted through the
young man's mind and ho determined
to consult a physician. But before
lie did so, hn wns prompted by some
idea to make an external examination.
Ho fonud a largo woodtiek burrowed
for half it length into hi
anatomy. The physician' services
were uot required.
