A. T. Martin, who is a native of
Illinois, where he says they raise the
finest horses in the word, not even
exoepting Keutucky, in conversation
with the Courier man was qnite
sanguine in his hopes for the future
growth and development of this re
gion. He notices some wonderful
changes for tho better even io the
three years tini since he came here.
Then he was not well impressed with
the average piece of horse be beheld,
but now he is delighted to find
that the people are taking a lively in
terest in such things aud that some
mighty good horses are being brought
into the country. t
One of the lady readers of the
Courier wants to express herself as
not favorably impressed with the
Grants Pass school board in sending
back east for teachers, io preference
to Oregon iaus. She thinks that the
"Home Indostry" idea should pre
vail in such matters as well as in
everything else that tends to holp
our horns people, not that she has
any personal objection to any of the
instructors thus brought here.

observing citizen, to the reporter,

on the new comer. I wish our city
fathers would see to it that it is made
more attractive and it would help
that part of the oity, too."
"Now, Mr. Courier mau I am not
a knocker, but I do really object to
the muddy crossings in the business
portion of Grants Pass. That man
who sprinkles the street never lets up
as they do in other cities, bat puts
dose of water on the crossings, so we
ladies have trouble in crossing with
out getting our clothss soiled. Why,
sometmes I have to go up a block or
two in order not to have to walk
through the mud. Can't you say a
word to him for us?" was the ap
peal of a prominent lady in this oity.
R. H. O'Neill, the Graots Pass
house furnisher: "Does Courier ad
