A Brief Record of
M. A. Leach, manager of the
Lanioine Lumber Company at La

Monday and purchased the lumber
of tbe Keterson & Sllsby and the
Harmon & Hinkle mills. He left
south Tuesday morning.
No better opportunity on he coast
presents itself for a safe investment
than the building of an electric rail
road from Grants Pass, Oregon, to this
place. It bas been proven that a
route is feasible for a steam road and
with tbe large streamsRogue,
Illinois and Smith Rivers, and their
tributaries to derive power from offers
tbe best of opportunities for an elec
tric road. The country a road would
pass through is rich in mineral, tim
ber, fruit, farming and grazing lands,
that today is not put to use due to the
lack of transportation facilities. Rec

A. L. Smith Is doing the kind of
promoting that will do much toward
bringing about the development of
tbe vast mineral resources of Southern
Oregon for be is inducing practioal
mining men to come and locate and
engage in aotive mining operations.
The latest mining man to come here
is J. A. MoKlnley, of Cripple Creek,
Colo. Mr. McKlnely is a miner of
exporienoe and has means and came
here to locate. He is so well pleased
that be has sent for his family and

Clyde Jeter, who went to the new
mining distriot on Pine creek in the
Southern part of Lake oounty and in
.Northern Nevada, writes to Ms par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Jeter of
tbis oity, that he shall be home so
soon as Winter sets In which will be
in November. During the Winter
months owing to tbe high elevation
tbe snow falls very heavy in tbe Pine
creek section making it impossible to
do outdoor work or get in supplies.
SotgTeat has been the rush of pros
ectors to Pine Creek distriot this
ummer that Mr. Jeter states that
there la not a vaoaat claim within
five miles of where he is located.
Tbe claims prospect well but no big
finds have yet been made.
A week devoted to buying the Fall stocks for
the Dry Goods, Furnishing and Shoe Departments
of The Sugar Pine Store, has produced a vast array
of good values that cannot be equalled in any other
store in Southern Oregon.
Our stocks were cleaned up to the lowest point
in our history, and the result is the largest NEW
stock of the "latest and best" ever shown here. We
are too busy this week putting the enormous lines
in order to give you details and can only ask you to
favor us with a call to prove to your own satisfac
tion that we are in a better position to serve you
than ever before.
