A Granite Garden
G. W. Jeffeb«, who ix some HO years
young, enjoys life because he enjoys
living. He also enjoys good, fresh
■nap garden vegetables which he pro
motes on the granite soil o f his own
■•rdenas a result of his keen enjoy-
aaent of an active life rather than to
■it around and count his birthdays and
try to imagine that he is getting old
because he has been- here for some
tiibe. Mr. Jeifers also believes in this
country and he gets considerable en
joyment oat of “ showing” h's neigh
bors from Missouri what this granite
■oil will produce with a little water,
lie has one of the finest little gardens
in Oregon and he grows all kinds of
vegetables and flowers to perfection.
His irrigation plant consists of a good
well and a common hand pump and,
while he is resting, he just pumps some
and then pumps some more because he
does not enjoy being idle. And the
vegetables and flowers just hump them-
■etves to show their appreciation of a
good drink. His cabbages are so proud
•f being permitted to grow under such
favorable conditions that their heads
aometimes swell to a point of bursting I
and the bean pods get as fat and cor
pulent as a trust magnate.
Will Plant Pears
F. O. Cochran, who has a fine fruit
farm on the foothill road, was in
town, Saturday. Mr. Cock ran is pre
paring to plant 15 acres to pears this
fall and will select the Du Comice and
Buerre Boses varieties. His land is
peculiarly adapted to this class of fruit
and these varieties of pears are known
to yield rich returns as soon as they
come into bearing.

CENTRAL POINT, OREGON
Hamilton H. Hendricks, erstwhile U.
S. commissioner at Fossil, Wheeler
county, who has been on trial for more
than a week in the federal court at
Portland on the charge o f suborna
tion of perjury in connection with land
frauds, was found guilty by the jury
last Saturday evening, the verdict be
ing reached on the first ballot.
Hendricks was one of the most prom
inent citizens of the Wheeler county
capital. He is a lawyer, and through
the peculiar methods of the Butte
Creek Land, Lumber & Live Stock
company, of which he is secretary and
manager, he has acquired considerable
property. He dabbled in local politics
to a considerable extent and evidently
thought he was backed by a sufficient-
ly strong political ring to be able to
pull out of any hole which his question
able methods might get him into. This
was shown by a letter of defiance
which he wrote to Mr. Heney at the
time of his indictment by the federal
grand jury more than a year ago.
“ You may indict me,” he wrote to
Heney, “ but you can never convict
He will appear for sentence next
Saturday. The maximum penalty for
the crime for which Hendricks stands
convicted is five years at hard labor
and a fine of »2000. There is no recom
mendation for mercy coupled with this
verdict, as there wa3 in the case of
Hoge, and it is expected he will re
ceive a pretty severe sentence.
