ONIONS GROW WELL
MARKET IS GOOD
SUCCESSOR TO C C DANIELS
6th St., Between J & X
Pkoae 513. with Gentaer Oarage
The question Is often asked, why
the farmers and gardeners around
GrantsPass do not raise more onions.
Those raised are of the finest qual
ity and the yield Is equal to that of
the Bermuda Islands and Laredo,
Texas. Though conditions here are
ideal for raising onions on a large
csale, so few are raised that large
shipments are brought in every fall
and throughout the winter and
spring from Texas, and sell at prices
that would net home growers a hand
In this connection a recent num
ber of Frank Leslie's Weekly says
that Texas gives us a practical lesson
in the benefits of protection, and,
strangely enough, the facts are
brought out by that high priest of
free trade, the New York Evening
Post, our able contemporary .reports
that the onion growers of Bermuda
are very much moved because the
nigh tariff on Bermuda onions im
posed by the United States Is driving
them out of our markets and leaving
a clear field for the onion growers of
In an article on the Bermuda
onion Industry In Texas, the Techni
cal World says that In eight yeara
the value of the annual product of
onions In Texas has grown from
nothing to more than $2,000,000
ana as a result, land that was
thought to be worthless and only fit
for goat grazing, now brings an an
nual net return of $300 to $500 per
acre from the onions It produces.
This land has risen In valuation
from $1 or $2 to not less than $1000
and many onion growers would not
accept less than $2000 per acre, as at
that price the annual net return av
erages 25 per cent on the investment.
It Is safe to say that when the tar
iff revisionists get to work this win
ter the onion growers of Texas will
be on hand to enter their vigorous
protest against the reduction of the
duty, on Bermuda onions, and that
the Bermuda onion growers will have
heir representatives on band to fight
for free trade In the Industry.

Helyoks's Test of Tar Maoadam.
A year's experience In the use of gsi
tar produced at the municipal plant In

of public works In tbe value of that
material In the construction of iimead

plant costs only 2 cents s gallon as
compared with (I cents or mors for the
ordinary commercial article. Although
not carefully refined and brought to a
uniform standard, the material has
given good results at a remarkably
low cost. As laid In Holyoke a new
macadam road can be laid with two
pourings of tar on tha surface coats
for 80 cents a square yard. This year
tha tar macadam will be nssd on mors

with tha ideal
The two games played with Rose-
burg High School recently developed
the fact that very few of the people
of this city know muc'i ubout tha
points of the game and what goes to
constitute a good game. Owing to
the fact that basket ball Is played In
the evening, it should make it very
popular as everyone is relieved of
their days work and wish for some
thing to drive the cares of business
away. Tne few people that saw the
games played were extremely Inter
ested and although they were the
first real games of the season and the
teams are not at their best, it could
be seen that there will be a rattling
good team turned out here it the
public will support it. If all tho old
'fans" and the new enthusiasts
would turn out, the team would be
a success and furnish good, interest
ing sport during the winter.
The game, when It is properly
played, Is the cleanest, fastest and
most Interesting of all sports, calling
as It does, tor a cool hud and quick
decision. It is void of all roughness
which places it in a class of its own.
The team consists of one center,
two guards and two forwards. . The
center Is the pivot, or as his position
indictee, the center of the whole
team. The forwards are dependent
upon him for the most of the basket
work, while the guards protect the
basket by keeping the forwards
(rom throwing the basket.
The officials of the game, are, one
referee, one umpire, one or more
time-keepers, and one or more score-
keepers. The referee has charge of
the ball and is the high official. The
umpire calls all fouls that come un
der his supervision and his decision
is not to be questioned by the

The home team la responsible for
the conduct of the spectators at all
times and a fowl may be called by
the referee on the home team for
any misconduct of the same.
The "Nuggets" expect to play a
number of games yet this season, the
next engagement being with the
Roseburg Athletic Club. This team
is very strong, having defeated the
crack Ashland Club last year four
straight games. There are several
games scheduled with Ashland later
on and negotiations are going on
for a series of games with the Los
Angeles Athletic Club which is tour
ing the coast.
The management will make ar
rangements to have the hall heated
and made more comfortable for
spectators before the next game. It
Is to be hoped the public will not
let such a popular amusement as
this fall through.

CROSSLEY COULD SEE
Wm. Crossley of the English flrra
of fruit commission men, was In tha
city Wednesday, and visited the
packing room of the Rogue River
Fruit Exchange. He remarked that
the work of packing now being done
was a great lmrovement over that of
earlier in the season when he was
here. Mr. Crossley has been watch
ing the fruit indstry of this part
of the Rogue River Valley and says
there is no reason on earth why wa
should not be ablo to have the finest
apples grown as we have both tha
climate and soil; if the trees are
properly cared for and the pack
perfectly made, our apples can not
be surpassed. '
The car of apples which took the
$1000 prize at the National Apple
Show at Spokane, was consigned to
tne Crossley firm.
