LETTER FROM FRANCE
Mr, and Mrs'. J. M. Chase are
ip receipt of a letter from their
son Story, dated July 15th, from
which wo tako the following:
"Wo aro hero (in France) at
last. Had a fine trip but was
eick two days on the boat, after
that I was fine. Had a fine trip
through Englandit is. a pretty
place; tho farms are small and all
have a hedge fence arounJ tham;
all streets arc narrow and the
houses arc built together in rows.
Every kid. says 'Penpy.'
rue little I'rencnman is tht
people over hqite for me. They
sure treat us fine and aro glad to
sco us. Thoy sure have got a
nice place here and some fine
wine, but you know wo don't get
very much of the wine.
Thoy all think wo will be done
here next spring and I hqpe so
as the old U. S. A. looks good to
mo. 1 have met a few boys I
knew back there and they all say
the same thing, although we are
treated good here.
Took a bath tonight and the
water was good and cold I guess
if you can listen hard enough you
can hear ys cuss."
Bags A Bear.
Mrs. L. S. Kelley,, who with
her. husband and her3fathcr; P.
D. McQuire', "are camping near
the forks of Eagle Creek, came
in Sunday fur more supplies. She
informed us that on Wednesday
of last week Mr. McQuire, who
was nrmed-wjth a shotgun, came
upon a big brown bear and two
cubs. Ho fired a charge of bird
$hot into the old bear's head,
which must have blinded the ani
mal for it commenced clawing
at its head and finally made oil
into tho brush accompanied by
one of tho cubs, tho other cub
climbing a nearby tree. In the
meantime Mr. McGuiro was work
ing with a shell which had got
st'uck in the,gqn, and when he
got it fixed proceeded to kill tho
cub that wns in tho tree.
Those interested in the new
irrigation project for Eagle Val
ley mot Friday evening to hear
tho report of tho committee who
had gone ov.er the proposed route.
Mr. Tweed, as spokesman, said
tr at by putting in a five-foot dike
at Crater Lake and making an
outlet five feet lower than the
present water level, a supply of
water would be available after
tho flood waters of Main Eagle
jwi receded. The report was
approved and tho committee- in
structed to file claim on the water

B-C ROAD HELD UP
A petition was circulated in all
sections of Baker county to be J
served by tho Baker-Cornucopia;
ost road, asking that the route
as surveyed and approved by the
state and federal officials be ac
cepted. This action was made necessary
by tlje fact that a few men own
ing land in tho Keating district
are doing everything in their
power to havo tho road changed
from, tho Palrxjer route so as to
go by way of Keating.
These parties ask for a re-sur
vey, claiming that the Keating
routp is the most practicable, and
among other evidence presented
in support of their cgntentifln is
a letter from tqc pen of David C.
Reeds, postmaster at Keating.
This .gentleman states that the
Keating route is the only prac
ticable route" and that I be
lieve that a careful investigation
by a competent and conscientious
engineer will favor the Keating
route." He also says "I will not
be able to estimate the cost of
building the road."
The people of the Panhandle
favor tho Palmer route, but if the
engineers and other authorities
had favored the Keating route
no howl would have been made.
the main idea being to get work
started on the road as soon' as
possible "But these few men at
Keating, who are evidently act
ing on purely selfish, motives, are
willing that this big improve
ment be held up and possibly
abandoned if it does come exactly
as they wish. They have not
considered the accommodation of
hundreds of others interested in
tha B-C post road, and they may
possibly have won their point had
not gther men, who had the inr
terest of the general public at
heart, started the petition emu
