The following - is clipped from the
Review, of Pacific Grove, Calif., and is
the comment following a published
item as taken from the MAIL sometime
since, pertaining to the World's Fair
picture and the battles fought near
"Mr. J. O. Johnson, who is at his
home here for the winter and spring,
is the owner of the original Table Rock
ranch, a large tract of land upon which
the battle referred to above was fought
The land is bounded for one mile by
Rogue river and on the other side for
one and a- quarter miles by the Table
Rock, which stands 850 feet above the
water in Rogue river at its base. One
year ago last June there was on exhi
bition at D. W. Lloyd's store an oil
painting of the historic Table Rock,
painted by Mrs. J. O. Johnson from
the porch of their residence, three
quarters of a mile from the Rock. This
is, we believe, the first picture ever
put in oil of that Rock without sketch
or photograph. It attracted a good
deal of attention here and is now packed
together with a large collection of
paintings to be shipped back to the
scene of its origin."
