C E. Maybee leaves this week for
North Bend to reside. Mr. Maybee
has been in the legal business here for
a number of years and has held several
important city and local offices. He
is an estimable and progressive citizen
whom we regret to lose.
After his varied observation, Mr. Pad
dock is not exactly in love with the
Golden etale and has retorned to
Grants Pass to remain. He saw soft
mud, loblolly, a foot deep in the
business streets of Los Angeles. No
one could alight from a street ear
down town without wading through
slime to the ankles to reach the side
walk. All of California, Mr. Pad
dock says, is for sale in lots to suit
the pnrcliaser. He counted 70 real
estate offices on one blocs iu San

Death of A. A. Cameron.
The death of A. A. Cameron, whose
fall down the opera house stairs was
recorded in last weeks' Courier was
a sad sequel to the accident. The in
juries be received from the fall were
not serious in themselves, but un
doubtedly aggravated and developed
the cause by whioh he died, hemor
rhage of the brain. His fall on Tues
day of last week was caused by a
slight hemorrhage which rendered
him partially unconscious and ac
counts for the dim recollection he had
of the accident. On Thursday he was
about the streets and except for the
superficial bruises caused by his fall,
seemed to be perfectly well and was
takeu hoiui on that day by his step
son, Henry Birtlett. Thursday evening
he suffered a severe hemorrhage and
died on Sunday morning.
Mr. Cameron was "9 years of ag
and had lived here for a nnmber of
years. He was thoroughly respected
by all his acquaintances. He leaves
a wife, Mrs. Melinda Cameron and
stepson, Henry Bartletr. His other
living relatives are two sisters, a
brother and an uncle in Ontario,
Canada, and a brother in Montana.
Modern Woodmen EntertaJn.
On Tuesday evening the Modern
Woodmen held another of their

Merrill has decided to purchase

double cylinder Champion
fire engine. This engine has two 80
gallon tanks charged with cheinieals
and ISO feet hose. It is mounted on
wheels and weighs 100 ponnds when
oharged ready for use. With this
comes two 8 gal Ion Babcock extin
guisher for hand use. The company
sells the apparatus to the town on
time taking town warrants due in
two years at six per cent interest.
If a shipper orders a car and it is
supplied, fails 'to load it, he is fined
so much per day. This is called
demurrage. It Is now proposed to
pass a law whereby the railroad may
be fined too, in case it does not have
a car on hand when ordered, provided
it be giveu reasonable notice. This
is called reciprocal demurrage. There
are bills before the legislature contain
ing these provisions, and prospects of
their passage are favcrablo. The idea
is advauced by the authors of these
proposed laws that corporations aud
individuals should be treated alike.
The Roseborg city council at a re
cent meeting took up a matter that
will require legislative action, namely,
the proposition to make the entire
city of Roseburg one independent road
district. It is claimed the super
visors do nearly all the improvement
work in the country sections of the
district, whereas the greater part of
the money raited therefor comes from
the taxpayers residing in the city.
A committee was appointed to pre
pare a bill to this effect and to be
presented for the action of the legis
lature. Two young men, of the transient
variety, were arretted here this week
by Marshal McGrew aad were sent to
Medford to answer to a charge of
larceny. The Medford authorities
sent a letter to the marshal here and
Mr. McGrew set a watch on the
trains, taking the culprits from a
freight train the morning after re
ceiving the letter. The theft for
which they were apprehended was
the taking of several guns from the
Medford shooting gallery. They
plead guilty to the charge and will oc
cupy the Jackson county jail until a
term of ciruoit court.
L. W. McDaniel, who claimed he
represented the Mutual Reserved Life
Insurance company, and who did a
great deal of business in Klamath aud
Lake counties, is charged with dis
honest practices in the the trausaction
of his business. II is alleged that he

THE PLACE TO GO.
As I walked along the street one day,
I passed a man and heard him say;
"My shoes are ragged, my feet are sore."
"My friend," said I," go to Churchill's Shoe store,
They will fit you out so nice and neat,
You never will know you had any feet."
About half block south of the Court House square,
You'll know by the windows whon you get there,
There are shoes black and tan, red, white and blue,
If thev suit others, thev
There are shoes for the mistress
And shoes for the cook;
Shoes that look nice,
And are as nice as they look;
Their prices, too, are always right,
And like their Shoes are never tight.
Then listen to me, for I'll tell you true,
Go to Churchill's if you want good shoes,
They mend the holes and sew up the tears,
And do all other kinds of repairs.
If your shoes play out and you neod more,
Just take a walk to Churchill's Shoo Store.
