tion oanal along the foothills ou each

will be presented by C. S. Blanchard,
of tbla city. Mr. Blanchard is
thorougby conversant with this sub
ject and will bave maps and data to
prove that this project Is not only
feasible, but is also a splendid invest
ment for capitalists to take up, and
one that will aid greatly in the de
velopment of this section of the
"Something doing all tbe time," ii
the way the fair management is find
ing things, nowadays and ever thing ia
moving along in fine shape.
From outside points come reports to
the effect that many people will be
here to take in tbe fair and as the
Southern PaciQo gives a special rate
of one aud one-third fare for the
round tiip, it is reasonable to ex
pect that the attendance will be quite
Thos. Lswmao, one of the host-
ling farmers of tbe Provolt vicinity
whs in the city this week and left
with superintendent Meserve a nice
lot of Specimeas for display at the
lair. Among them were a couple of
samples of alfalfa, one nearly seven
feet high and the other even higher
and all grown on clay, hill land and
showing what that kind of soil may
be made to produce. He has among
his collection a freak English priBi'
rose and some ore from a very promts
log copper .ledge which has been de
veloped enough to indicate that it is
a very promising property. He will
put in some time hustling among his
neighbors, with the idea of getting
them also interested in tbe coming
fair. His father, who ia a native of
Kentucky, where they grow floe
tobacco, has been growing some very
fine specimens of the real artiole on
bis place and will have some on ex
hibition at the fair. He will have
the cured article, as well as some
green and showing the product aa it
is before being cat and dried.
The development of the various in'
dustries of the Rogue River Valleyjis
the principal object of the Rogue
River Industrial Fair and along this
line W. P. Sharmao, one of the lead
iugjpa inters of this city, with others,
has.undertakeu to develop a tine bed
of ochre on tbe Rogue River, some 12
miles below the olty. Ihey will bave
a paint mill in operation at tbe fair,
grinding, mixing aud showing all
phattes of the work in ,the making of
paiut. Tbey have brown and yellow
ochre of very good quality and the
paint made from "the same is pro
nounced equal to the very best paint
to be found oo the market. Ihey
hope to demonstrate its value and
thus iuterest capitalist and so be
enabled to eiect and operate a paint
mill right here in Grants Pass.
Emil Gentuer was in Grants Pass
Tuesday, from his place on Biard
Shanty creek in Applegate Valley and
he left some tine fruit with Supt.
Meserve, which was" placed in cold
storage aud will make a fine showing
at the display hall. He also brought
iu somi elgant ripe figs, some in
boxes aud others left on the brandies
for bIiow. He aud his parents are
taking a lively Interest iu the couiiug
fair and will do all iu their power to
advance its interests.
Mr. and Mrs. E. Erickson from
near Wilderville were at tbe county
seat tbis week and tbey will have
some nice displays on exhibition at

specialty of superb fruit, while Mrs.
Erickson raises some very fins ohick
ena. Tbey will endeavor to get their
neighbors interested in the approach
ing fair.
Chas. Toffs aud Herbert Smith, the
genial proprietors of tbe Grauts Pass
Cold Storage plant bave done a most
oommendable thing in offering tbe
use of their fine plant in taking care
of all fruits until the fair is in opera
tion. This action will be greatly
appreciated by the management, as
well as by tbe exhibitors.
Manager Robie, of the California
Pine Box & Lumber Co., did the
handsome thing by the fair manage-
ment in agreeing to let it have tbe
lumber needed for the buildiug nd
arches at a figure that made it possi
ble for tbe fair to be held, taa the
funds for such matters are quite
limited Such actions are most de
sirable and show very conclusively
that the people of this city and com
munity are alive to the Importance
of the coming fair.
That was indeed a splendid thing
for the oarpeotera of Grants Pass to
do, when they offered to donate their
servioes for a couple of days in build
ing the exhibit hall and the two big
arches. The men who thus displayed
their public spiritedness in a vory
praotisal manner were as follows:
Jos. Harper, D. A. Fitzgerald, Geo.
Smith, Mark Day, A. Nale, Albert
Hood, Geo. Crawford, J. O. Calhoun,
Willard Cbase, Geo Slover, Jud Tay
lor, N. A. Stanley, H. V. Doxsee aud
son, Earl Doxsee, Henry Hiller and
Elmer Day.
Musio for tbe convention will be
furnished by an excellent orchestra,
composed of local talent and this
feature of the occasion will be of
an unusually high order of ex
The inooming trains will be
greeted with a sight of two big
arches, one spanning Sixth street,
between F street and the railroad,
while the other will be located on
tbe same street, between G and the
railroad track. These big structures
loom up immensely and present a
very atriking appearance. They are
54 feet wide and 32 feet high. Tbe
key s tons has tbe words "Rogue River
Valley and numerous appropriate
mottoes adorn the arches. Tbe
colomus are to be oovered with green
and gold bunting, the oolors of the

adorn the borders of the arches and
the big arcbes will be illuminated
above and below with a lot of eleo
trio lights.
Tbe exhibition hall, measuring
60x80 feet standi conspicuously
near the railroad track, on Sixth
street and it will now be put in
