decent baggy ride, yoo .better ooine
ont our way, because we know yon

Grants Pass. 1 Now we're been
around soma, but we nerer saw in
our life, worse streets than we fiud in
oor county seat, the prosperity of the
country and the saloon lioense not
withstanding. By the death of Frank B. Smith,
Mnrphy has lost one of her most re
spected oitlaens. Mr. Smith had
lived in the neighborhood the pant
four years, turning his attention
mostly to mining. He was a talented,
well read, gentleman aud his pleasant
conversation, whether in argument
or instruction, will be sad!y mimed
by his many frleudi, who now, after
his death, remark about his excellent
qualities. Why didn't we say those
things to Mr. Smith? Why didn't
we tell him that we appreciated bis
chats and his smiles aud were glad to
have him in our midst? Let us re
member after this that kind words
and boaquets never made a oorpse
smile and a pleasant word to the liv
ing is worth more than a marble shaft
to the dead. He died of heart disease
in the Grunts Piihs Hospital, Decem

after bolug cremated at Portland,
