'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.
