FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1908.
Fllmer At Gloversvllle, N. Y., No
vember 28th, 1908, Mrs. Fannie
Deceased was a former resident of
Independence, Iowa, her old home,
and later ot Grants Pass, Oregon,
where she resided with her brother,
the late John Hale. She was an art
ist ot rare ability and she leaves
many (Mends who will be sad to
bear ot ber death.
Miller Albany, Oregon, Peter M.
Miller, Saturday, December 12,
1908, aged 81 years.
'Deceased was a resident of Kerby
i.nd Grants Pass from 1882 until
1 f0&, when he moved to Albany.
The sending of an exhibit to the
National Apple Show has resulted In
great good to this community and
once more apples from this part of
Rogue River Valley have been
awarded prizes. This Bhould be a
' lesson to us and should result In
greater activity being displayed by
our people In advertising and exhib
iting our fruit. There Is room for
many a thousand families In this sec
tion of the Rogue River Valley and
there are many thousand looking for
homes. A good, live advertising
campaign will bring people here, and
nothing else will.
The Deputy Inspector of Dairies
for Coos county, who by the way Is
a woman, created a mild sensation
the other duy at the meeting of the
Oregon Dairy Association, by stating
that on her rounds she visited one
dairyman who kept his separator In
the cow shod and after piitting the
milk through, and not having a rag
handy, took off a sock to wash the
sepurator with. That's the trouble
with having women Inspectors
they're apt to be particular about
some things. Suppose the man
hadu't any socks on?
Some of the newcomers accuse
some of the roHldonts of Grants Pass
of bolug knockers. Well, there are
a few of thut undesirable. claHS here
not us numerous aa they used to bo,
and Homo duy wo won't have any
and some, day wo won't have any
thing but boosters.
Nuw people coming everyday to
Grants Puhs will soon make it neces
nor for someone to get In and build
some hotiMMx; tlin old ones are get
ting pretty near full.
A GAME OF BLUFF.
A good game of bluff is going on
down In Washington between Pres
ident RooBevolt and Congress, and if
the matter turus out as it bids fair
to, a few members of tho House and
Setuito will be shown up In tholr
true colors. Tho trouble all started
over the president's niessuge, in
which he crlticlHed the uniendment
made to tliu measure providing for
tho secret service last year prohib
iting details or transfers from that
department, tho president Intimat
ing that the amendment was made
In order to prevent Investigation of
the records of Congressmen. Con
gress threatens to retaliate by pass
ing a resolution censuring the presi
dent, and In return President Roose
velt Bays that Bhould they do so ho
will, by way of justification, pub
lish a few facts concerning the re
cords of various members of Con
gress which he lias secured by the
uso of tho secret service men. It
may be that there will be a severe
BhaKo-up of the members of Con
gress, for there Is no doubt but that
there are some men there whoso re
cords will not bear the light of day.
No one tloulits, however, when Presi
dent llooscvoit says he will show
them up, that he will hesitate to
make good, find In the present case
the presldeut has all to win and
nothing to lose.

Planting Rallread Station Grounds.
The planting of railroad station
grounds Is a very Important part of
making a town or city beautiful, and
each year more consideration is given
the subject. Finely plunted grounds

to appreciate. On tho other hand,
slovenly, dirty or ill cured for grounds
give a bad first Impression, aud the
lack of improvements or care Is quick
