general school library fund fur the
county and this money is spent for
library books which are in charge of

in the care of a librarian appointed
by the county superintendent. The
selection of books rests wi'h the di
rectors of the district, with the aid of
the teacher but if tliey neglect 'to

county school superintendent or the
state library commission

ordeis of the various districts segre
gated and the booss are ready for de
livery as soon as the librarians have
been appointed and confirmed. The
proportion of books for the Grants

That Grants Pass is to have erected
next year a four-tory modern hotel
with the best equipment and service
of any hoetle; v in the state outside of
Portland is the firm conviction of
those directly interested in the move
ment Plans of tbe structure have
been received and are on exhibition
Tbe site selected is the block
bounded by E and F, and Eighth and
Ninth streets, with the front entrance
on Eighth street. The building as
planued ia to be 106x184 feet, which
includes an 18-foot veranda. This
veranda will extend around the four
sides of the building and the entire
four stories, and the structure is to
occupy the center of the block 56 feet
from tbe sidewalk on all sides, this
space to be iu lawn with trees and
shrubbery. The novel feature is that
tbe building will be constructed of
logs surfaced oo three sides but the
outside wlil have tbe appearanoe of a
log structure. TbeJ furnishings are to
be in the Mission style and all of the
furniture is to be manufactured in
Grants Pass. The first floor will con
tain office, lobby, grill, kitchen and
several suites : tbe second floor suites
and tbe third and fourth floors single
rooms, of whioh there will be about
80 in all.
The promoters of the enterprise say
that it is a certainty as a large por
tion of the necessary 140,000 or 50,000
has been promised and tby have an
offer for a 10 year lease at a good
figure with a guarantee of netting
tbe stockholders at least 8 per cent on
It would be hard to estimate the
value of such a building to Grants
Pass as an advertisement, but some
idea can be formed when it is remem
bered that the most imposing build
ing at the Lewis & Clarke fair aud
the one which attracted the greatest
attention was the forestry bui'ding,
constructed entirely of logs. Grants
Pasa needs greater hotel accommoda
tions as even at this seasou of the
year the hotels are crowded and have
to seek accommodations for their
guests at private and rooming houses.

Tbe Sheriff's office has received a
Burroughs adding machine of the
latest model which is prov.led with

The experience social on Wednesday
evening given by the Ladies Aid So
oiety of the Newman M. E. oburch
was a success both socially and finan
cially. The program rendered was
exceptionally good. As the roll was
called each member came forward
with ber dollar and told her exper
ience in earning it, some of them be
ing quite funny.
George G. Peil returned Wednesday
from Portland, where he had been to
purchase larger mangle for his
laundry. The next day the mangle
arrived and it is a machiue weighing
five tons, capable of turning out an
immense amount of work. It speaks
well for the city of Grants Pass and
hows that good business is done
here. Mr. Peil intends to Increase his
plant from time to time as work war

That apples can be successfully
grown and be a profitable crop in this
Valley has been demonstrated ry
Elsmann Bros. To further increase
their output of fruit they recently
purchased the Conway, plaoe of 70
acres, adjoining the borne plaoe, pay
ing $8900 for it This will give them
over 200 acres of land, 160 of which
will be planted to apples. The boys
mean to keep abreast of the times
and In the handling of their fruit mid
cultivating and taking care of the r
cliard the latest improved machineiy
will be used. When every car load i
apples means 11800 it orrtainly is an
incentive to grow that fruit.

than nny plow made, and is, therefore,
the cheapest and best.
We have plows adapted to all the
