ACCOMPLISHED DARING FKAT.
That the Illinois Valley creamery la
Increasing the number of its patrons
is proven by tbe fact that 2T large
cream cans were received at tbe depot
bare Monday from Portland and
billed to Matheson & Johnson, Kerby,
who are the owners of this, the only
creamery in Josephine county. I. was
only two months ago that a previous
shipment of cream cans was received
by the Illinois Valley Creamery and
that another lot was required so soon
is proof that tbii creamery is a suc
Matbeson & Johnson started their
creamery last Spring and only had
tbe ceram from a small number of
cows, but the number baa steadily in
creased and it Is certain that with the
opening of next Spring that the cream
from fully 300 cows will be bad. Many
farmers are planning to be able
to snpply cream to the creamery dur
Ing the Winter months when tbey
have more time to care for their cows
and to deliver the cream, and the
price is also better then than in the
Spring and Summer. So far the 111!
noia Valley Creamery baa not been
able to send but little batter to the
Grants Pass markets, the local de
mand taking all that can be made,
and at a good price.

and preparing to leave for San Fran

superintendent of the Baptist city
missions. This call was extended to
Mr. Travis last November but at the
time be declined, preferring to remain
with the Church at Grants Pass.
Since that time he has been continu
ously urgel to accept and finally
yielded to the appeals. Since the ac
ceptance of the call he has received
ao urgent call from Seattle to come to
that field and take charge of the Bap
tist city missionary work.
Mr. Travis has been pastor of the

Tie Couriir cflice this week has
lut'ii favored with fruit and water
melons. E. V. Adams a few days ago
brought iu a goodly numU-r of as Hue
flavored peaches as it has been our
good fi.riau" to late. Of tin ir keep
ing iiuaiitiea, however, we are un
able to sptak, inasmuch as they ouly
laoted a part of one afternoon. As we
go to press this week there repose on
a shelf under the composing stone,
two two-foot watermelons that will
weigh in tbe neighborhood of 85
pouuds each. The melous will be
carved w hen the paper is on the press
and J. II. Lawton, and J. C Christie,
the donors have our thanks. These
melons and the one brought in by A
Umphlette a few days ago, help'ua
to realise that Rogue River melons
are tbe best that can be grown.

geologists Climb to Crater of Mount
City of Mexico, Sept , S. With
Jhelr bodies severely burned by the
fires of Mount Collma volcano, four
teen adventurous delegates to the
International Congress of Geologists,
which meets In this city this week,
reached here yesterday. The trip to
the crater of the volcano was a peril
ous oae. It had never been accomp
lished before by anyone, although
several attempts to scale the precipi
tous mountain had been made.
The members of the party of
mountain climbers went about tbelr
work methodically. They estab
lished camps at different points on
the ascent and made a certain
amount of progress each day until
tbe summit was finally reached. The
volcano was pouring forth great vol
umes of smoke, but this did not deter
the erplorers from advancing to the
very edge of the crater. A hot and
sudden blast of fire from the depths
below badly scorched the bodies of
the men, and they beat a hurried retreat.

Hood River After Foreign Trade.
Hood River not content with cap
turing tbe markets of the Eastern
States, England, France and tier
many, getting the highest price paid
for apples for their fancy pack of
Spitzenbergs and Newtowns, is now
after the Trans-Pacific trade in tbe
big cities of Siberia, Japan and;
China. Their latest scheme to build
up tbelr sales in tboee countries is
putting fancy printed labels instead (
of plain labels on tbe apples. A large
shipment that is to go to a big firm
in Vladivostok, Siberia, has on the
wrapper for each apple printed in
Russian a description of the apple and i
where grown and the firms name and
address that Is to sell tbe fruit
When it comes to successfully ad-,
vertising their fruit and pushing it
tales the Hood River orcbardists lead
tbe growers of the country and tbe
fabulous prices tbey are now receiv
ing for their apples proves that lit
