Ed Harriott, the Williams stago
driver, had a narrow escape on Thurs
day from serious injury by a vicious
horse. The animal is one which is
driveu in his team, and he entered
tho stall ignoring, for tho moment
the animal's peculiarities. The horse
began kicking at Harriott in tho nar
row stall. He was struck on the arm,
the blow bruising the member
severely mid all but breaking the
bono. A particularly vicious kick
caught the leg of Ills trousers, tear
ing the garment iu a ruinous man
nor. Harriott finally escaped by
crawling under the manger and a lit
tle later untied tho animal and gave
it a few lessons on the advisability of
more orderly deportment.
The clothes line robbers are again

onlv, is responsible for having sated
Mrs. Clement a portion of her washing.
Not loi.g ago, mens' apparel was
taken from the P. II. Hurth clothes
line which was probably the work of
tramps, but this was not the work nf
hobos as there was no sorting dono.
Tho perpetrators were tracked quite a
distance aud it has been reported that
their identity was discovered. Mrs.
Clement says she has no desire to pros
ecute, but sho wants her clothes and
expects to havo them returned to her.
That Grants Pass, is the great mill
ing center of Southern Oregon, has
been recently corroborated by tho ex
ecutive committee of the Oregon state
Miners' Association, deciding to hold
a convention at Grants Pass next fall.
And that Grants Pass is the greit
dental center of Southern Oregon, is
corroborated by the fact that there
are more dentists in Grants Pass than
in any other city in Southern Ore
gon, and from the farther fact that
there are dentists in Grants Pass, of
supirior qualification, ingenuity,
skill and ex!K.rieucv, who are prepared
to do any kind of difficult cases of
dentistry or remedv any kind of
failures, of other dentists, that can be
accomplished in the largo cities.
Hence they draw work from quite a
distance. Within tho past week Dr.
Jennings has had two very difficult
cares of dental work, from parties
who reside much nearer Ashland,
Medford aud Jacksonville than Grants
Pass. They were parties who had
failures from other dentists. They
received work that gave them entire

OWNS HIS WATER PLANT
O. Lund Making a Handsome
Ple.ce on Iowa Street.
O. O. Lund, who last year pur
chased the Cochran place on Iowa
street, is making it one of the hand
somest among, the homes near town.
The situation is a beautiful one, the
slope of the ground being very sym
metrical, and the building lite is one
of the handsomest of the vicinity.
Siuce acquiring this property, Mr.
Lund has remodeled the bouse and
made a number of additions to the
buildings. He has cleared the ground
of the stumps which marred the ap
pearance of the jfiace and has dug up
the poorer trees of the long neglected
orchard and trimmed aud pruned the
remaiuder into a far better appear
ance and prospeot of profitable fruit
crops. He is now preparing to en
close his place with a neat wire fence.
He will plant an avenue of rose
bushes between the house aud the
front gate and pround the about the
residence will be seeded for a lawn.
The most noteworthy of the im
provements which Mr. Lund has in
stituted on his place is the water
system. He baa a water plant that
will furnish an ample supply of
water for domestic use and for the
small amount of irrigatioa that the
ground needs to 'make it produce in
abundance. The water is pumped
from the well into a tank, the power
being furnished by a two horse power
gasoline engine. The tank has a
capacity of 106 barrels and is of suffi
cient height to cover the greator por
tion of the place. It is filled by a
double aotion force pump which
throws a continuous stream. Pipes
lead from the tank in different di
rections and about 000 feet of pipe
will be UBed.
This water system is one that could
be used with good effect on a great
many of the places of this valley. If
more of the residents would take the
pains to beautify their homos that
Mr. Lund is doing, the good effect
could not be computed. Nature has
done her part toward making, this the
most beautiful country in the world
and hor efforts should be supplement'
ed by those of the resideuts. This
ought to be made a country of beauti

W. L Sweetland's dogs in tho rear
of his moat market which adjoins tho

made shortly beforo opening iu tho

Such Is Thought to Be the Fo.to
of A N. Dro-ke.
