The work of retimbering tunnel No.
9 is progressing rapidly and by an
other month this tnnnel, one of the
longest in Southern Oregon, will be
re timbered and made absolutely safu,
The cninp of the orew operating the
steam shot el is located half a mile
north of Tunnel 9. There will be
about SO incu in the crow and they
will be here about eight months. All
the trestles are to be filled and some
of tho sharp carves are to be reduced

Better road work is being'doue this
vear on tho roads than ever beforo in
this valley. A. II. Porter, tl.o Le
land supervisor, is doing some good
work on the roads of this district.
Supervisor Porter is only grading the
roads as lie has no gravel to use in
surfacing them and the county having
no crusher, he cannot use rock of
which them is plenty near at hand
In the next district above on Grave
creek, the supervisor, Vt'rn. Light, is
doing substantial and permanent work
In grading, draining and graveling the
roads. A special feature of Supervisor
Light's road work is that lie is able
to open ditches that run down hill,
instead of up hill or on a level as so
many supervisors are only able to do,
though tho water does not always run
the way these tyro hydraulic eugi
naers would have it. And he is also
able to put in the culverts at the low
est poiuts on tho roads instead of up
the hillside as is frequently done.
Your correspondent made a trip up
Grave creek this week and found
progress and prosperity on every
hand. At the Greenback the 40
stamps are dropping with the regular

is keeping up to the rate that has
made this mine one of the most profit
able in Oregon. Steam power is now
used but it is to be replaced by elec
tric power. Tliis power is to he sup
plied by the station at Gold Kay and
a foroo of men are now at won put
ting in the wires between Graute Pas
and Greeuback ou which 'he current
will be delivered to t lie motors at the
mine. The wood used for fuel at the
Greenback Is cot on the mountains
near by and is run in chutes to the
roads where it is hauled to the fur
naces. Ic is au interesting sight to
witness the wood come like greased
lightning down the chutes. Newell
I)) sort has the coutraci ti get out
this wood but when this lot is out, his
job will be finished. Acoss the gulch
from the Greeuback mine is located a
promising ledgu that is being de
veloped by, Newell lunian. Mr." In
man has au arrastre and has been able
to make good wayes with It, but ow
ing to a light water supply he is a,ble
to operate it but a part of tho time.
This ledge is two feet in width and
as depth is reached it steadily in
creases and there is reason to believe
that it will Bhow op to be as extensive
and rich as its famous neighbor, the
Greenback. This property would be
worth investigating by persons seek

Boys Puncture Bicycle Tires.
Hoodlum boys of Grants Pass have
takou up a diversion that is a favorite
of those embryo hobos of othor towns,
that of puncturing with tacks the
rubber tires of automobiles aud bl
oycles. Thoir method of doing the
damage and yet avoid detection, is to
pretend to be feeling the tire of an
automobile that they find stauding on
the stroot.orof a bicycle that has boon
left ou the sidewalk. They have tacks
in their band aud while examining
the tire, stiok the tacks in it So soon
as the auto or bicycle is started, the
tacks are driven their full length into
the tire, puncturing it aud lettiug the
air out. These hoodlums also add
to their divertion by sowing tacks
along the streets and paths frequented
by bioylists. Those tacks are. In
variably new and as this olass of boys
am uot over burdened with cash nor
with honesty it is safe to assume that
they steal them from the stores. As
the police, as well as the bioycle and
automobile owners and the merchants
are ou the lookout for these boys there
is a likelihood that they will get a
chalice to take up their residence at
tho reform school where they will be
given diversiou in plenty as well as a
wholesome training in respectability

MAKING A GOOD ROAD
Cut-Off on Stage Road at Selma
Good Piece of Work.
County Surveyor H. L Reynolds
was n the Selma neighborhood last
week doing some land surveying.
While there he examined tha new cut
off near Selma In the Grants Pass
Crescent ' City stage road that the
county ' was having made under the
direction of Road Supervisor W. H.
Wimer. Mr. Reynolds states that a
good job has been done and that this
section will be one of the best roads
in Josephine county so soon as the
rongb spots are smoothed off and flares
widened that teams can readily pass.
This new section leaves the old road
just beyond the Anderson place at
the point where the road heretofore
crossed the right fork of Clear oreek,
and follows down the east bank of
the oreek and joins the old road near
where that stream empties into Deer
creek. It has a very easy grado up
the creek valley, in few places reach
ing one per oent, and only one seotion
has a grade of 8.1 per oent grado.
Almost the entire distance is ou solid
rook, mostly slate, with a section of
diorite, and when It becomes worn
with travel it will be as smooth as a
paved street This new section is
1.1 miles in length being a few rods
shorter than the abandoned section.
While this new road has cost consid
erable to build yet it will be a most
profitable investment for the county as
it will never require any great ex
penitnres for repairs for it never gets
muddy nor be washed out by floods. It
Is a decided improvement to tho stage
road, over which there is more
freighting aud travel than ou any
other road in Josephine county, for it
will eliminate two long hills, having
grades of 10 to 13 per oeut and a half
mile of heavy clay road, that was al
most Impassable for six mouths of the
year aud the point that pleases the
taxpayers is that it does away with
three bridges, two across the main
stream of Clear crook and oue across
the west fork of that creek.
This road improvement is in line
with the policy now being oarriod out
by Judge Booth and Commissioners
Lovelaoe and Logan of locating the
roads on permanent routes and of
eliminating all heavy grades and
swampy places, and also to do away
with all bridges possible. The old
make-shift plan of doing road work Is
now a thing ot the past in Josephine
county and whatever money is ex
pended on the roads is with a view of
making Improvements that are practi
cal aud permanent, though the first cost
may be high. As each seotion of road
is to be improved the expenditures
for repairs thereafter is reduced to
a minimum aud eventually, that
bottomless mudhole iuto ' which the
road fnuds of Josephine county has
heretofore gone, will have boeu done

What Persistence Will Do.
The value of persistence agaiust
obstacles was illustrated in a good
story told by William S. Powers, a
speaker at a recent banker's conven
tion in Pittsburg. He was talking
on the subject of advertising, but the
application can be made to other lines
of endeavor as well. Ho said: "A
vory interesting experiment as made
a short time ago in one of our great
rolling mills. A bar of steel weigh
ing half a ton was suspended ver
tically by a sleudor rhain. Near by a
cork from a bottle was suspended by a
silk thread. The cork was started to
swinging so that it struck gently
against the steel bar. Of course it
made not the slightest impression.
But the motion of the cork was con
tinued, and at regular intervals it
struck the great bar of steel in exact
ly the same place. Fivo minutes'
passed and still no effect was noted on
the bar. After 10 minutes, however,
the bar gave evidence 'of feeling un
comfortable. A sort of nervous chill
crept over It. At the end of 20
minutes the chill gave away to dis
tinct vibrations, aud 15 minutes later
the great bar was swinging like the
pendulum of a dock.
"A siuglo week or month of adver
tising is merely a blow or two of the
cork agaiust the bar of steel. Its
effect is absolutely nothing. It is
money aud effort wasted but the
ooutinocus, persistent hammering,
week after week, month after mouth,'
is jnst as sure to start the pendulum
of business swinging yoar way as day
is to follow night". Seng's Good Fix
