mer Czech foreign minister.
Yostcrday afternoon, an old gen-
tloman entered the Herald office, and
In reeponse to tho Inquiry; "What
can I do for you," bo replied:"
"Nothing, I'm tho original crazy
man of Klamath county."
It was then learned that the visi
tor was J. T. Roberts, of Poe val
ley, nd that the reason attributed by
soma people to hla self-confessed in

River aiming t, Prospecting com
pany. 1,11a brother, K. W. Roberts,'

tain Siemens are the other members
ot tho company.
The splendid Indications round
upon the Manning ranch are a sourco,
or great satisfaction to Mr. Roberts,
who feels that his contldenco In oil
prospects boro has been vindicated.
In Justice to Mr. Roberts it must bo
stated that ho displays no character
istics which stamp him lacking In
mental equlpmont, but back in the
days when ho was first bitten with
the 'oil bug" he says his neighbors
seriously considered the question ot
submitting his case to the considera
tion or a lunacy board.
