The adoption of Pale Faces into the
order of Redinen at Medford recently,
when 115 were taken into the tribes,
was one of the greatest events which
has occurred in fraternal circles in
Southhern Oregon. The Grants Pass
tribe of Redmen, however, are plan
ning to outdo our neighbor city and
will have a big time here early in
November, when they will have from
125 to 130 rale faces ready to be
adopted into the various tribes of
this section. Medford has set the
pace aud it is a swift pace, even to
match, but onr tribe feels confldeut
that they can go theiu one better.

from useless druRS that I could not
eat, and my nerves so wrecked that
could not sleep ; and not before I was
given np to die was I induced to try
Electric Bitters with the wonderful
resultB that improvement began at
onoe, and a complee cure followed.

PLAN FOR HOSPITAL
AT GRANTS PASS
Physician and Business Men Will
Co-operate to Establish a Lar
ger n.nd Better Hospite.1.
Grants Pass Hospital been
patients and many most
difficult operations have been per
formed, yet not a death bas followed
an operation. Tbe service at this hos
pital has been quite the equal had at
the best city hospitals and the charges
have been less than ia nffnn mnrla tn
the cities for similar operations. But
n.oi .. .,.
costs from f."0 to 1100 for usually au ine Beneral Pn mat the won
attendent or a physician has to go ' wiU not re'11 clM there
alone. Then if a .itiv .mnii0111 hardly be but one result to the
the sick person the cost of living and
other expenses are larger in the large
city;. than in a town. Already the
Grauts Pass Hospital has saved a very
large sum of money to the residents
of Southern Oregon.
It having been demonstrated that a '
hospital is a success aud can be made '
a permanent institution in Giants j
Pass it is now the intention of several
of the leading physicians aitd business
men of the city to put the Grants!
Pass Hospital on a more solid finan- j
i cial basis. To that end it will be in-!
Corporated and the publio will be
asked to take stock iu the company.!
A tract of laud convenient U the city
and suitably located will bo pur
, chased and a section of what can be
made into t fine hospital building
; will be erected. The determination
1 is to keep the venture on a safe finan
cial basis and not undertake more
than what can be carried out with the
1 means at hand. A committee of busi-ne.-s
men will call on the citizens of
Grants Pass next week and it is ex
: pected that every property holder and
everyone interested in the welfare and
upbuilding of the city and in the es
i tablishment of a most worthy publio
institution will take one or more
shares of stuck.

Pants are made for men and not for
women. Women are made for men ;
and not for pants. When a man pants i
for a woman and a woman pants or a j
man these, my friends, are a pair of
pants, but th.se pants do not last. :
To make pants last, make the coat
first. Pants are like molasses, because !
they are thinner iu hot wtatlier and j
thicker in "cold weather. A fat man !
cannot keep up his .'pants in' not j
weather without suspenders, Lbnt a !
dog can. Men sometimes makemis-
takesiiu pants.andj these are calLed
breeches of promise. There has been !
much discuHion, my (friends, as to ;
whether pants is singular, or plural.
In my mind, when a man wears pants,
i it is plural, but when be does not.it
is singular. Ex.
