ST. MARY'S STUDENTS
TO PLANT TREES
They Will Co-operate With Ladies o
Greater Medford Club in Beau
tifying the City.
The students of St. Mnry's Aeml
emy are looking forward to Novem
her 24 with briclit hope. On tha
dnv thev will co-operate in the lam
nblo design of the ladies of th
Greater Jlcdford club by planting
trees.w hich will in future, by the:
silent beauty and voiceless green
honor the hands that so tenderly
reared them. How beautiful n pme
tice it is to iuculcnte in the youthful
mind, by a day specially set apart
for the purpose, the love of a elos
and careful study of the gifts of the
forests, thus cultivating n greater
reverence nn dfiner senseo of the
grand and the sublime in nature.
Our poets have used their pure?
thought, their sweetest 'music
praise of the forest and the flowers
Longfellow beautifully writes:
"If thou art worn and heart beset
With sorrows that thou wouldst foi
If thou would'st read a lesson tha
Thy heart from fainting and thy soul
Go to the woods and hills! No sears
Dim tho sweet look that natuie
Yes, many the lesson we recei
through nature's teaching. Each
flower of the field and the garden
tells man to listen to nature's God
speaking of tho love of an All-Wise
Father who has beautified the canl
in order to raise His creatures1
thoughts above. What objects can
better inspiro us to gain victory over
trials than tho trees! Think of the
grand old oak, which in bold defi
ance to its foe, while reeling in the
wrath of tho tempest, is sending
down to deeper hold its gnarled roots
only to bo better able to triumph in
tho next sotrra.
Indeed, wo nro happy that tree
planting day provides gracious means
of u elosor acquaintance with "God's
first temples," and we trust that this
effore may result in much good.
"lie who plants a tree
Plants n hope.
Rootlets up through fibors blindly
Leaves unfold into horizons free.
So man's life must climb
From tho clods of time
Unto heavens sublime."
Tho details of tho program now in
course of preparation will bo pub

SAN FKAXCISCO, Cal., Nov. IB.
The sleam schooner Cascade
and the schooner F. XL Slade col
lided Saturday when 'J5 miles off
Point Heycs and ten miles northwest
of the lightship. Hoth vussels nar
rowly escaped going to the bottom.
The collision occurred a few minutes
before midnight, according to the re
port of the eaptnins of the vessels
which readied this port today.
The Cascade, Captain Charles Xfa
row, was bound for Astoria in bal
last. The night was clear, with no
fog. The Cascade ran directly
across the course of tho schooner.
The heavy jib boom of the Slade
struck the smokestack of the Cas
cade, tearing it and the whistle pipe
awav. The boom then swept townrv
the aft and swung the rigging into a
wreck before it fell to the deck of
the steam vessel.
The crows of both ships wero ter
ror-stricken. Neither knew that an
other vessel was in the vicinity, and
the belief general on each vessel that
it had struck on tho rocks.
When the real trouble was ascer
tained Captain XInrow stood by un
til it was ascertained that the Slade
was not in a sinkinir condition. Tho
Cascade then started for San Fran
eisco, arriving early today. A tu;
was sent to tne nut ot tne oiaue
which was towed iuto the harbor to
She- was leaking slightly and her
rigging is badly damaged.
The Slade is loaded with lumber

ing for items f interest for the
readers of tho Xlail Tribune, and
among the things I noticed was that
E. S. Wolfer, our strawberry and to
mato man, was preparing to go iuto
the H)iiltry business and has fenced
off a tract of land expressly for tho
chicks, built a neat and commodious
henhouse; also bus planted tho posts
for n new wire fence around his
place .taking in a two-acre tract
that he bought some time ago off the
H. G. Brown place, and is weaving a
fence, thus fixing things up gener
ally. Also that Fred Pelouze is hav
ing his home, on the place ho bought
of Eli Dahack, remodeled and fixed
up generally, and getting his ground
ploughed and preparing to plant it
to trees. That tho farmers along the
route were generally busy putting in
their crops, fencing or hauling their
produce to Eagle Point market or for
shipment. I also found the roads in
a horrible condition, and when I en
tor my protest against the manner in
which the people in the outlying dis
tricts nre treated with regard to the
roads by tho county court, I foil
that I am expressing the views of a
mnjority of the taxpayers of the
county. If our county court (now,
I hope that this is not treason or
contempt, of court) would open up
their official souls and spend say
$100,000 in improving our county
roads and let the other fellow that
comes Inter and has the benefit of
the improvements, help pav for the
work, it would be n benefit to those
who nre now wallowing through the
mini ana jolting over the rocks, in
more ways than one, nnd would
make the eountrj' so attractive that
the prospective purchaser would
fall in love with our country instead
of being disgusted, as was a man I
wns taking up Little Butte creek not
long ago, when he rcmnrked that he
would never live in such a country as
this when he could find a penitentiary
to live in ho wns so disgusted with
ion i uta not intend to write nn
article on political economy; but the
people in tho country back from the
cities ha a right to better treat
ment tinn they receive from the
hands of -the county court.
