I DOINQS AT THE

From the Various County Officials.
Reward for McCumber.
"Jim" McCumber, the erstwhile
jail bird who made his escape from
the Josephine county jail one quiet
Sunday afternoon, recently, by sawing
off one of the heavy iron bars by
means of a case knifo, which he bad
made into a file, is still conspicuous
for his absence and Sheriff Russell
wants to know of his whereabouts
The fellow is one of those profeaaionl
criminals and has been in the toils of
the law before and if he can help it,
he does not propose to be sent up to
the state penitentiary this time for
"rolling" a drunk at Leland and
"touching" him for the sum of $10.
Sheriff RuhsiH offers a reward of 25
to any person who will furnish in
formation, leading to the srrest of
the fellow. McCumber may have
left this part of the country for good.
although be was ieen prowling around
the neighborhood of Leland, where
his last known crime was conimittsd.
If caught he will be summarily dealt
with and will doubtless Bud himself
behind the state prison bars, where
he seems to rightfully belong.
School Clerks Negligent
County School Superintendent
Savage Is making arrangements for
his tour of annual Inspection ot
the schools of Josephine county, as
be is required by law to mske. But
in planning for the trip he finds that
he is not sure about some of the
schools holding school, as the clerks
of certain districts have entirely
failed to comply with the law in the
matter of filing with the county
superintendent copies of their con
tracts with the teachers they may
have employed. This is a matter of
mnob importance and some school
clerks may find that they have made a
big mistake in not thus complying
with the law governing saoh matters.
Superintendent Savsge hopes those
officials who have not attended to this
matter will proceed to do so at their
earliest pottsible opportunity.
Trua.nl Offlcere Nsvmed.
Io the rush of fair and oonveution
matter in last issue the Courier made
a few errois in reporting the names
of truant officers appointed to do duty
iu Josephine county. One was in
district No. 37. (Wolf Creek) sohool,
the name given as F. E. Logan and
it should have been T. E. Loban In
district No. 23. Winifred Savage is
the person intended and not Winifred
Sage. These official have an import
ant duty to perform and jost in pro
portion as they are diligent, will the
attendance io their respective districts
make a good showing fur the coming
Tn.ipB.yers Should Notice.
Elsewhere iu tins issue of the
Courier is to be found au official
notice which Sheriff Russell, as tax
collector of Josephine county gives
the taxpayers who have failed to at
tend to the matter of paying their
taxes for the pant year. If they wish
to escape paying penalty and interest
or having their property sold for such
taxes, they should look after this
matier at ouoe. The time is quite
short and a delay may cost them
