A Capricious Wooar.
Laet Friday afternoon aa J. F.
Roth, elerk At Rntermnnd'A drug
store, was horsbark riding in the
vicinity of the old Holme poor farm,
hi horse became frightened and be
came unmanageable, running for a
mile and half before ha waa able to
get bias ander eoatrot la the cotirie
of flight panned by the aoimai b ran
between wood wajon and a tele
phone pole which were so near to
gether that Mr. Roth's right leg waa
badly braised by coming in contact
with the wagon and be baa been able
to walk only by the aid of critrhes
for the paal week and it win be
several day yet before he is able to
resume bia duties in the drag afore.
The hone which Mr. Roth wa rid
ing, wa a race hora, "The Wooer"
formerly owned by Baber Bros., and
is a dangerous animal, being of
treacherooa nature and beyond the
control of the moet skillful horseman
when io one of bis onrnly mocd.
Cp to the present time Mr. Both haa
alwaya been very soccessfu! where
"wooer" were concerned, bnt this
last experience has proven not quite
so plearant as frrruer ones, in the
meantime Will Fry wi.l attend to
bis duties as drug clerk until be is
sufficiently recovered to assume them.
Bethany Sunday School Rally.
Last Sunday was the regular
Autumn rally day with Bethany
Presbyterian Sunday school and the
hour for Sunday school and preach
ing service wete detcud to rally day
exercires, which were very enjoyable.
The decorations consisted almost en
tirely of fruits which made an elabor
ate and handsome display. The edge
of tht platform was fringed with corn
tope, with a row of apples joet be
hind. On the floor were a good num
ber of monster squashes while on the
pulpit stands were pyramids of red
and yellow apples, ail choice fruit
At the back of the platform and
hanked against the choir rail was a
pyramid of assorted froits and melons
in great variety, whilu suspended
from the ceiling were two monster
horns of plenty pouring oat nature's
gifts of fruits and adding to the
abundance shown in the foreground.
The whole display was a work of art
And Also placed in exhibition the
varied fruits of this section.
To keep pace with the new order
of things in Josephine county J. H.
Robinson last Satuiday received a
thoroughbred registered Poland-China
boar pig from the Willamette Valley.
Mr. Robinson has a number of brood
sows of the same breed from register
ed stock in Iowa and also a registered
boar. He purchased the yoong one
to keep from inbreeding and will keep
the old one for some time for breed
ing purposes. He also has some
young bcae and sow pigs for sale at
reasonable prices. It is indeed grati
fying to see pure bred stock coming
into the couuty, for a pare bred ani
mal of any kind is always worth two
of the scrub variety, and are also
pleasing to the eye. Josephine county
is an ideal place in which to raise
fine stock as weli as fruit, and there is
need for more men like Mr. Robinson
to push the industry along.
