E. F. Graham, of Prospect, was in
town Toesday. Mr. Graham own
some valuable timber lands in the
prospect country and is also establish

a great success. Mr. Graham is
probably the pioneer of this industry
in Oregon aud he bas found the
pumice land on upper Rogue River to
be particularly adapted to the growth
of this valuable root. He already has
some 3000 plants growiug and will
put in more as fast as he can procure
the plants. Ginseng Jis highly prized
by the Chinese as a medicine and is
said to sell in the Celestial Kingdom
