May, is one Hint Is along the right
line fcir'ihu well bring ami upbuild
ing of this city. Tho hospitality anil
old time social lifc.ffor which the
American home has been noted In the
years gone by, is rapidly being dis
placed by the demands of church,
lodge and society, and the modern
home la no longer the place where
the family may And that spirit of
contentment aud the happy environ
ment that will prevent the father
from spending his evenings out, and
the mother, from lack of comwnion
ship doing likewrne, while the boys
are roaming the streets and the girls
iu questionable oompnny.
To have a refined, educated person
to Join the family circle for a time is
uplifting in many ways. New ideas
are brought out, selfishness, exclusive
ness and Intolerance is checked and
the monotonous life that so many
families fall into, is broken. With
company at the table, or In the even
ing circle, the father will brush op
his ideas, the mother her graclousuers
and the children their manners and
all will be bene B tied. Many a horn"
would have its unpleasant features
lessened or removed, and even divorces
mucin less likely, were then morn
hospitality, sociability and tho re
freshing break in the home life made
by the advent of a welcome gaest
from time to tlmo.
As the melius of giving a town a
good name abroad, nothing is more
effec tive than to make visitots feel t
home whe n in the city, and that can
bust be done by taking them into the
family circle, even for but one meal.
It is a Ions to a town to show no
courtesy to visitors of prominence,
other than to greet them at the public
gathering, or at the hotel or on the
street. A delightful hour at a home
will give them a kindly recollection
of the town and en one them to Bicak
many a complimentary word that will
be a most profitable advertisement to
it, and which would bring more re
sults in attracting Investors and home
seekers than a hundred phampleta-
The reviving of the old-time home lion
pitalitylsa matter that means much
to Grants Pass, ami the Womaiis Club
should have every encouragement in
their hi enable endeavors.

An enlarged market for farm pro

Grants Pass are the two that conduce
more than any thing clue to tho pros

complishing this desired result. As n

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 8, the Doors of the Golden Rule Swing Open
to the people of Grants Pass and vicinity. In last week's paper we attempted to sive a general outline ot
our Mock and our mode of retailing merchandise. We believe without a single exception, people prefer buying
their iik rchandise at home, provided it can be done to as good advantage as elsewhere. We do not believe be
cause we 'ocated in (.rants I'ass the people of this community owe us their patronage, or even a small per cent
of it. unless we merit their suppoit with good, clean, honest, reliable merchandise at as lovr possible prices as it
can be procured in the largest cities in the United States. This we guarantee to do in every instance
Hclow we submit a few of the many good things received todate. Owing to the great distance some of our stock
is cteining and the unavoidable delays in transit we will not have our entire stock for the first few davs
New things will be show all through the store. And notice the prices; no fancy city profits askd

potent labor with which to operate a
cannery. There is a largea nd grow
ing local market for canned goods
and the outside market id practically
unlimited. This and the other Pacific
Coast stated will be one of the best
markets for canned goods in the
United Stated, fur the mining dis
tricts, cities factory towns and sea
ports will each require great quanti
ties to supply their demands. Alaska
and the Oriental countries will, in the
near future become Immense markets
for canned goods and the cold climate
of the former country aud the density
of the population of the later counties
will preclude their ever supplying
their own needs in canned goods.
Ashland had one cannery and id like
ly to soon have another. Ashland
canned goods have attained such a
high standard for quality that the
rales have grown most rapidly aud
the busieiiia proving so profitable
other parties In that city are prepar
ing to erect a cannery and Pave It in
oH-nitlon. Mudford id making an
effort to secure a cannery. Albany is
likely to secure a cannery. An Iowa
cannerymnii has sent a quantity of
seed of choice corn to be planted on
various farms in the vicinity of that
town. The object is to test the soil
and climate of that section and dam
Ides of the corn wil bo dent back to
Iowa to Im canned that it may be com
pared with the Eastern products. If
the test is satisfactory, the Iowa man
will erect a cannery at Albany that
will handle the product from 800 acres
of com. Were Grunts Pass alive to
its interests, sampled of corn from
this section Would be sent for testing,
and as the showing would certainly be
succcful, there would be a likeli
hood of some caniieryman being in
duced to come here and put up a cau
ueiy and engage in the hunieuss. The
ni'iny benefits coming to the city and
tho surrounding country through the
location of a fruit and vegetable
cannery should be snflleieiit Incentive
to the business men of Grants Pass to
take up the matter aud bring it to a

ROGUE RIVER COURIER, GRANTS
THE RUSSO-JAPANESE WAR
Conaul-General Miller Telle of
Scenes and Incidents.
Monday evening the Grant Pas
opera house bad the largest audience
that had been within it for a year past.
So great waa the attendance that 60
extra chairs were added to the seating
capacity of the large room and then
there were persons who had to stand
op while others not being able to se
cure scats turned back at the doorway
and returned to their homed.
The occasion was the lecture by
Consul-General Miller on the Rtisso
JapantFe war. The lecture was given
under the auspicea of the Grants Pass
High School and the proceeds were for
the library fund. The services of Mr.
Miller were generously given to the
school and such was the popularity of
hid lecotre that the school had after
all expensed were paid, f 104 40 to
place to the credit of their library
fund. The stage was tastily decor
ated with potted plants and flowers,
while back of the speaker' stand
there was draped a largo American
flng.dupported at either side by a Jap
anese and a Russian flag.
City Superintendent R. R. Turner
introduced Cousul-General Miller,
or rather ad he stated it, told why
he and the unusuallly large audience
were there, for this was one iustauce
in which no introduction was neces
sary for the speaker, and that with
the distinguished citizen of Grants
Pass, who was to appear for the even
lug, It could not be said of him that
ha was a prophet without honor
among his own people for the repre
sentative gathering of citizens in
every walk of life, proved that he had
the esteem and the confidence of his
fellow citizens. Supt. Turner spoke
briefly of the eminent serviced that
Mr. Miller had rendered while con
sul at Niu Oh wang, China, aud of the
fitting recognition of Jhis ability as a
diplomat in his lipiHiiutmeut by
President Roosevelt to be United
Stated cousal-gcueral for Japan.
Roth when Mr. Miller weut to the
stage and on his rising to speak he
was greeted with the heartiest ap
plause. As a preface to his talk ou
the Russo-Japaueso war, Mr. Miller
gave a brief history of Japan and a
description of its pcoplu "and of the
cansu that brought tho nation from
an obscure position to one of the
great powerd of the world. Of the
present war ho said that Japan hud
been prepariug for 10 years aud that
it was a war in which all the lieople
wore in it with their heart and soul
and no sacrifleo i f life aud wealth
was too great for them to uiuku, that
their country might in this struggle,
which they lie Id to he one of life or
death too their very existence as a
nation. The releutles, tremendous
conquest by Russia bringing that
country nearer aud nearer to Japan,
made the Japanese realize that their
country, if the Slav power was not
checked, would soon follow Man
churia as a vhhsi'1 of the great white
Czar. Of the Japanese people, Mr.
Miller said that they were most win.
diirfully intelligent in many respects.

their readiness to take np with any
Thing new that appeared better than
what they had was not equaled by any
other people in the woild. Wbiie
their prowess in war was the wonder
aud the admiration of the world, yet,
tne accompishuieuta in trade and
manufacturing that they would make
would cause a greater astonishment
to the commerical cations. Half of
the ahippiog ou the coast of Asia was
Japanese and their vessels were as
fine steamers and as 'well built,
equipped and manned ad the best
American. With a country having a
network of mountain streams that
afforded almost unlimited water
power and 40,000,000 people, with
whom mechanical genuis was as
natural ad to a Yankee, and with
whom 25 cents a day wonld be good
waged, it would be but a few years
until Japan would become oue of the
biggest manufacturing countries of
the world. But this industrial de
velopment would be to the advantage
of America, which would find in
Japan a great and growing market for
many of its products.
Of the Russians, Mr. Miller said
that Americans had a false idea, for
the educated classes were as cultured
aud refined as any people. In charac
ter they were more Asiatic than Eu
ropean in theii self-conceit and dupli
city. Yet they had mauy noble traits
and they wocld yet make of Rusdia
ouo of the greatest couutried of the
world in all that moelern civilization
implies. Iu giving his sketch of the
war, he had over 100 views which
were showo by stereopticor and which
portrayed vividly and lifelike, scenes
that made the audience almost feel
that they were actuallly viewing dis
tinguished Japanese and Russian per
sonages, home and strict scedes nud
tho realities of war. As each view
appeared ou the screen, Mr. Miller ex
plained it, and so clearly and coucise
were his statements that his audience
gained a more comprehensive knowl
edge, of affairs in the far East than
could have been gained iu a month of
reading. The lecture was thoroughly
appreciated aud at its close Consul
General Miller was given an ovation
