  • H.L. Kelly, for the past three years in charge of the fisheries department of the Argentine Republic, spent Friday with friends in this city. Mr. Kelly left Oregon three years ago in charge of half a million salmon eggs for Argentine and during that time has put their fishing industry on a scientific oasis. For years he was in charge of hatchery operations on the Rogue.
    "Rogue River steelheads are doing well in certain rivers," states Mr. Kelly, "but the fish that has done the best is the eastern brook trout. They grown to an enormous size and are full of life and vim.
    "Argentine is a good country, but Oregon is better and the Rogue River valley best of all. I may go back, having a six-months leave of absence, but I don't think I will. I don't feel at home among foreigners."
    A burglar forced entrance by the back window into Williams & Co's store (formerly Nunan's) at Jacksonville yesterday night and secured a quantity of merchandise, some clothing and a little currency left in the cash drawer, amounting to a few dollars. There are no clues.
    Gill's Travel Tours, to be given at the Page tomorrow and Sunday, is certainly the last word in artistic moving picture photography. Rapt interest and intellectual stimulation mark the whole two hours of entertainment. From the first number on the program, which is a comic jumble of letters finally evolving themselves into a request for the ladies to remove their hats, to the last, a magnificent representation of the famous land of the Midnight Sun, with views of monstrous icebergs such as destroyed the Titanic. The production is a triumph for its producers. A kaleidoscopic procession of scenes pass before the eyes that is entrancing and the best of it all is that nature is presented in her original colors, while at the same time you hear perfectly rendered all the proper accompanying sounds, the rush of torrents, the cry of birds, human voices, and the silken swish of the wind. This is accomplished with clever apparatus and the assistance of two skilled ventriloquists.
