Hill Have Dinner and Three Ses
sion at Their Institute
In February.
Mr. and Mrs. R. L, Lermao from
Provolt were ill Grants pBHg Mcnday
to market produoe BD( to do shop
ping. Mr. Lewms D is a young farmer
fcf progressive ideas and ii a strong
believer In farmers inetituttes. He
attended, (he institute beld at Pro
Vol Vast September and be is very en
thusiastic over the one that is to be
held at that plaoe in February.
Mr. Lewman, when in the city,
called at the Courier office and re
quested that arrangements be made
with Dr. Withycombe for holding a
session in the forenoon as well as in
the afternoon and evening at Provolt,
for they were planning to bare a bas
ket dinner and make a big day of it
Where the distances are not so great
bi tween the places for holding insti
tutes as preclude it, Dr. Wiihyconibe
always prefers to hold three sessions
at a one day institute. The Doctor
will doubtless favor Provolt with the
three sessions, as he will all the other
plaoes, where the February institntes
are to be held, that desire to have a
dinner and to arouse such interest
among the farmers that they will all
attend, provided he can arrange to
give mere time to his Southern Ore
gon trip, so as he can make the ap
pointments. These farmers Institutes have be
come permanent institotions it is
customary to have a dinner and make
the day a big event. The social
sids of the farmers life is quite
as important as the other conditions,
and it is the plan to make these farm
ers institutes gatherings where the
neighbors can meet in a delightful,
social time. -With a goo 1 dinner and
musical and other features in the pro
gram the young people can the better
be Induced to attend the institntes, to gain an interest in the reg
ular addresses of the session. The din
ner and tlie social hour that follows
is equallj belpful to the older people,
for it breaks down the feeling of re
serve that so often is a characteristic
of people residing 'Jn Isolated sections
where there are few public gatherings.

Mrs. Browning runs the Placer
Hotel. 8he is very obligipg to her
guests as she baa bad long experience
in the hotel business.
Reports froas Placer are that times
were never better. The qnarti ledges,
which are numerous, are all being
worked with a full force of men.
Our hotel is doing a good business,
as this Is a central point for Upper
Grave Creek also for Mt. Reuben dis
trict. It makes Leluod a lively town.
Henry Ball took a spin out Into the
country to the steam shovel near
Tunnel 9 delivering freight for T.
J. Mack in, who has quite a big trade
at that place.
Col. Blasdell was in town last
week. Be report lively times down
Grave creek. He has no men work

He wants to complete the ditch by
the time the beavy rain come.
The steam shovel I getting along
nicely. They are crowding the work
as bard a they can. Ibey are work

have spent a large amount of money
in this vicinity since they started
We have had a nice rain with the
appearance of more. Now the g round :
is sufficiently wet to enable the far
mers to plow. They have been busily
engaged daring the fall getting up
their Winter' wood and doing other
necessary work on the farm.
We have uo sickness to re port.
Wide Awske had a severe cold but is
better at the present writing. He
thinks be will go courting. He may

The amount of capital kriat it ex

Then the cost of shiptiing the ore

would stimulate more prospecting.
Very often we bear of miner finding
ledges that are ulptureu so will not
work the lode for they cannot handle
the rock here. We havn plenty of
timber, water, everything that is re
quired and oo ot the healthiest
places on the Paoiflo coast. Very little
use for doctors and no nee for lawyer.

I the Time Schedule of Southern
Pacific-Feeler Train Wanted
by Southern Oregoniana.
"The run of the Portland bnaineiw
men' excursion train from Salem to
Ashland Tuesday night was the fastest
time ever made on the Southern
Paciflo between the points. The train
left the Capital City at 9:30 o'clock
and promptly at 8 o'clock Wednesday
morning rolled into Ashland, covering
288 milis in 10,' hours, ahont 27 S,
miles an hour. At times the speed
was much greater. Tha Overland
leaves Salem on schedule just an hour
later, and is due at Aahland at 12:115
o'clock the following day. The ex
clusion train had left Aahlanri Wed
nesday morning at 10 . o'clock, and
was ready for its iMFsenger to depart
for Jacksonville by the time the Over
land reached there southbound. This
beat the regolar train by over three
and a half hours. "
The above is the Portland Tele
gram's comment on the speed of the
Soot hero Paciflo trains on the ShaMa
route. The 20-mile an hour service
that the Southern Paellio gives on this
road does not meet the needs of the
big traffic that its trains get from
Southern Oregou towns. If the run
ning time of the passenger trains be
tween Oranta Pass and Portland and
also to San Francisco could lie xhort-
eued two hours it would be a con
venience greatly appreciated by all
leaidenta of this section, who have
occasion to travel by the Southern
Pacific. Freight train sced for
passenger trains is too Mow for the
hustling people of Southern Oregou.

President Favor Equal Suffrage.
Preaidint Roosevelt does not limit
his doctrine of a rquare deal to auy
clues or clauses of citizens. He in
cludes in it all persona, women as
well as men. As (Jovornor of New

head to the soles of my feet," said
Miss Gordon, and added, "So doea

President Roosevelt said to Miss Gor
