they don't If they have to wait on the
late shoppers the last few days before
Xmas. Make Xtnaa a real holiday
for the clerk and proprietor by do
ing your Xmas shopping early.
Ttbere is no real good reanon why
any one Bhould wait till the Monday
before Xmas to do his or her shop
ping. And there Is a real good reas
on why they should not. The early
shopper gets the selection of a big
stock. The late shopper has to take
what the early shopiier declines.

Decoming more and more careful in se

arose another obstacle which had a
tendency to retard the marriage cere
mony for a day at least. And this
was the girl's age, which from her
own statement was a trifle over 17
years. Although quite perplexing
this question was quickly solved by
Singleton, who lilt upon the idea of
telegraphing to the wold-be brlde'fc
mother for legal consent. "I'll pay
for this telegram," remarked Sin
gleton, "for I am sure her mother
will consent. We must make this
couple happy, and marrtage Is the
one solution."
Believing taht Singleton would
make good County Judge Wonaeotr
and District Attorney Brown held
a brief conversation, at the conclus
ion of which the actress was again
turned over to Singleton pending
word from the girl's mother, who
lives in Los Angeles.
In the event the mother gives her
consent as expected, the marriage
will probably occur either tonight or
tomorrow. County Judge Wonacott
has promised to tie the knot free of

Although not conducting a mar

Koseburg's well known constable, and
peace officer, today distinguished
himself as a man capable of bring
ing happiness to those in search of
wedded blias. Readers of yester

Drake, un ai;ter, was anc-svd at
Med ford on a charge preferred by a
Myrtle C'rM?k resident who claimed
that he (Drake) was living with a
young actress named Cora (irlfflth,
under the title of man and wife. Fol
lowing Issuance of the warrant,
Drake was arrested at Medford.
while Miss Griffith was brought to
lloHchurg and turned over to Juven

return fnim the southern city.
