Mr. and Mrs W. C. Fry were in
Grants Pass Saturday making pur
chases of the local tuerchauts. Mr
Fry is a farmer and resides a mile
west of Merlin. He has been engaged
in general farming but he has decided
to make fruit raising bis specialty as
he has land especially adapted to ap
ples and grapes. The profit on or
chards in this county has convinced
Mr. Fry that that industry is one of
the safest and best paying that a
farmer can engage In. Mr .Fry has a
large amount of brush land to clear
and to aasist bim in the work he pro
poses to get a band of goats.He has
investigated the scheme and ' mrf is
convinced that the work of" killing
out the brush will make the goats
profitable even though Vhonldt'fiehT
