FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 27, 1907.
Eveibyody la BtiU talking about the
Rogue River mines and froit grow
ing are attracting widespread attention.
Why not make an effort to have our
planrs of business and residences look
lag neat all Civ year 'round?
The finding of gold in the striata of
Grants Pass, by an old prospector,
during fair week,in paying quantities:
was a splendid advertisement of our
mineral resources. TblH ploaMing in
cident had a moat impressive effect
upon fbe newcomers who were herejto
nine up this part of the country.
Every oue is loud in his praise of
the toocoss of the fair sdJ couveutiou
and the people who speut time and
money iu promoting theae objects
must feel amply repaid for all their
labors of love. They undoubtedly
renlire tlutt they did a good thing
when they put forth all tholr might
iu endeavoring to make the affairs a

they knew, for the lcople notice such
things and they act accordingly. They
like to Hee pulilie spirit displayed iu
such a milliner and they will not for

oar oup is more than full. This is a
most important factor in the material
welfare of this county and when it is
good we all rjolce with the growers.
Now that the convention and fair
are over, we note that many a paper
in the Rogue River Valley which
should have been boostiug for those
events before they occurred, are now
saying some mighty nice things
about the success they achieved. Bnt
they would have been much more
successful if we could have had the
hearty co-operaton of all parts of
Rogue River Valley. As it was,
Josephine county almost had to go it
alone and naturally enough we felt
that our county has won great honors,
but we would really rather have di
vided tht honors with the other sec
tions of the valley. These were not
Grants Pass doings, but were origin
ally intended for the whole of the
valley, bnt for obvious reasons the
other localities did not see fit to have
a hand in the gieat good that was
