tirely informal and young and old
seemed to enjoy themselves heartily.
Many wre prevented from attendance
by business and absence from the
city bat 200 persons were present. Fach

Flight of Homing Pigeons.
O. C. Presley on Thursday morning S
released a flock of 15 pigeons belong-1
ing to Mr. Bauer, a member of the
Oregon Homing Pigeon club. The !
pigeons after circling around in the
air at a high altitude for a half hour
or more started northward on '
their trip to Portland, a distance of
296 miles. They left Grants Pass at
9:40 a. m. but did not arrive at their
home until 4:29, thus requiring 6 hours
and 49 minutes for the trip, which is !
considered slow traveling for a carrier
pigeon. Tliis is accounted for by the
fact that they were delayed by a storm
in the Willamette valley. Last year'
the trip was made ' in 5 hoors and 10
minu'es. This same flock made the
trip from Roseburg this year in 4
hours. Later in the season when the
atmosphere is less liable to be cloudy
I the (lock will be sent to Grants Pass
forauotber trip and they will probably
j then make better time.
