' J. W. Thomason, who figured In the
justioe court some time ago makes
strenuous objection to the artiole
which appeared in the Oonrier regard
ing the case. The paper stated that
Thomasou . knocked Church down and
that staetment is the cause of much
unre-t on the part of Thomason who
declares that although he struck

Chorch was ba lly damaged but the
conn proceedings failed to show that
Church was actually down.

The vinelss potato fraud caught
many honorable persons who were led
by the plausible showing made of how
quantities of potatoes could be raised
in a bin at only a small cost to fall
into the get-rich-quick scheme.
Fow.'e & Lycan "of Portland took tho
Oregon agency for the company hav
ing the alleged patent rights to the
discovery and installed a sample bin
in this city. By the time the post-
' office department had exposed the 1
fraud this firm had expended t'-'OO in
putting in bins in various farts of the
state. The firm though duped them
selves did not propose to dupe others
and refused to accept money for county
or individual rights or sell the po
tatoine until they themsevles had
made a thorough test of its merits.
Grains and Grasses Wanted.
There is not an exhibit of the agri
cultural products of Josephine county
to be set-n in Grants Pass and strangers
in the city noting this fact and thai
the hills about the city are yet in
their primeval- wildness, draw the in
ference that there is little farming
carried on here. To prove that the
soil of this county does produce grass,
grain, fruits and vegetables not to be
exoelled by any other county in Ore
gon the Courier will undertake to
collect an exhibit of these products.
Grains and grasses should be tied
in bunches and dried in the shade and
handled carefully. Samples of this
year's growth of fruit tiee limbs and
of grape vines would add to the in
terest of the collection.
