Hurt Perduo unci George Gordon,
two young farinera from Kvans creek.
were in (iranta I'ass last week. Mr.
l'erdue in an iueiTiew with a Ooarlor
representative, gave a practical talk
on good roads as trade drawers for
Grants Pass. Ho stated that he has a
flue lot of apples and baa been market
log them in this city, but bo will
bring no more thia a'ason to Oranta
Pasa for the road between Woodvllle
and hero ia In anch a condition that
a full load cannot be hauled, making
the trip too unprofitable to bo under
taken. Mr. Perdue stated that were
theio a good macadamized road from
Woodvillo to Grants Pass, that tbe
farmers and miners won lit do mnch
of their trading hero, esiiecially the
Turner for this city was always a
good market for produce. Mr. Perdue
said that the long, hard pull over
the Pry Diggings was now one of the
I worst ohMacIca to the farmers np
; Itogno river reaching Grants Pass.
Willi the road along the river on an
i easy grade, loaded teams could get
along even If tho road was muddy,
hut to add to the illlllcnllT of a bard
pull over a bill that ia totally un
necessary, is a handicap that the
i farmers do not caro to overcome.

The W. C. T U. meeting of the
24th of Febroary, wiil be over when
the Courier reaches its readera on ac
count of which we regret the change
in the day of publication; but aa
"there ia no gieat Iobb without aome
gain", we can coniole ourselvea with
the thought of economizing finan
cially. Four local papera coming into
the home at one time, or jut at the
cloed of the week ia a auperfluity, ao
we can make a selection and cut them
down to our choice. The character of
the literature in a home, indicatea the
character of ita inmates. JSewapapera
are read by many who never read
hooka, ao we can hardly estimate the
influence of the local press. Frances
Willard, In her plea to the preBa,
said "We know many of the diaad
vautagea against which yon contend,
but notwithstanding these, to tell the
atory of today ao aa to make the world
more brotherly tomorrow, ia the only
right way and would alao prove ex
pedient for all concerned."
February 17th Seven yeara from
the date of Francea Willard'a death,
was the day appointed for the un
veiling of the atatue of Francea
Willard in Statuary Hall at the Capi
tol. The following U the inscription
on the pedeatal:
"Ah, it la women who have given
the costliest hoetpge to fortune. Out
Into the battle of life they have aent
their best beloved, with fearful odda
against tliem. Oh, by the dangers
they have dared, by the hours of
patient watching over beds where
holplesa children lay; by the incenae
of tun thousand prayers wafted from
their gentle lipa to Heaven. I charge
you give them power to protect along
life's treacherous highways, those
whom they have so loved. "
FRANCES E. WILLARD.
"Illinois next "week will present
the second of the statues which It 1b
entitled to place iu Statuary Hall, at
the national rapltol. It will he Mint
of Frances Willard and will bn the
first statue of a woman to lie placed
in or offered for thia national gallery.
1 lie lifo work of Miss Willard, which
has moved Illinois to render this
honor, haa endeared her memory to
the nation. It is a tiding and beauti
ful tribute, the more so when con
trasted with the remarkable selections
of aome other states. There may
! have been aome question as to the
imprietvof ignoring the famous and
deserving Illiuoisana eligible for a
niche in Statuary Hall, but there can
be none concerning the merits of Miss
Willard. The action of Illinois is a
homago to Americau womanhood as
