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. If Fishes Had Wings They couldn’t get away from “ Tog gery Bill,” which we are led to re- hiark by his last achievement. In com pany with Joe Duvall and Wm Entrop, who went along to see the sport, last Saturday morning they skiddooed to the river and the next morning, for a brief period, he caught eight twelve- pound fish every three minutes. Dur ing the excitement incident to the big tun one of the 12-pounders took a side shoot between Duvall's legs, the latter being only too willing to assist in land ing the beauty, and before he know bis fare was paid Duval! took an in voluntary excursion down the center of the channel for about a hundred yards, or until the fish turned against the cur rent, when he allowed his victim to swim ashore. Duvall's enthusiasm en abled him to begin work at once after ward. The same day “ Toggery Bill” hooked a 30-inch steelheud, which is pronounced the largest ever caught With hook and line. After fishing the atream dry up to the hatchery, the party returned home and Bill’s friends have enjoyed the best mess o f fish this aeason. —Medford Mail.

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 me.” 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. m J g ç _____________ ________ I-XririririririXriririririri-X-X-X-X-X- commissioner of Medford, burned last night The buildings were only recently Beagle Briefs constructed and cost about $2500.
