ing out an old spring preparatory
for use when he unearthed the
bones at a depth of six feet. He
had to cease digging here on ac
count of the flow of water. The
bones were brot to town and Dr.
Dow examined them. He said
they were the bones of an Indian
man and woman. The bones of
the man, according to Dr. Dow,
indicate that the Indian was not
less than 50 and not more than
about 70. The teeth in this skele
ton were worn down contiderab-
ly, which shows that the male
was probably nearer 70 than 50.

Asked to raise $600,000 toward
the Red Cross relief fund, Oreg
on raised more than a million dol
lars. The fund was over-sub
scribed all over the Unit* d States,
showing that true patriotism in
America is not dead, certainly
not when it comes to such hum
anitarian work as the Red Cross
is doing. The response thruout
Southern Oregon was most grat
ifying indeed. In fact the a-
mounts raised, ir. almost every
case, exceeded expectations.
When the final totals are tab
ulated for Jackson county, it is
expected to run over $21,000, for
funds were still coming in as
late as yesterday, altho Monday
noon marked the close of the
drive. The latest figures for
