Riport reached Medford this week
that a very rich quartz lodge had been
located on the west fork of Griffin
creek, about eight miles from this city.
We are unable to name tho party or
parties who made the discovery, but
our informant stat ed that the vein was
six or seven inches in-width and would
go $700 per ton. A piece of rock half the
size of one's hand was hammered out
and the estimate of the probable yield
of the ledge was based upon this.
You wonder how Cranfill & Hutch

placer field.' As soon as the concen
trators shall have arrived the machin

any great amount of placer work.

cripple, for a few months at least, last
Saturday. In some way he got mixed
up in Strobridge's heavy dray, which
by-the-way had on a heavy load, and

the ankle and above ihe knee. For

"The special edition of the Med
ford Mail of December is well gotten
up, and shows lots of enterprise by tho
publishers of that paper. Diversified
farming is helping that part of Oregon
very much.'' Cottage Grove Echo
Leader. "This is all right so far as
the excellence of the paper is concerned,
for it was a good one, but the intima
tion that the editing of such a paper is
an example of diversified farming
ought to ba resented by somebody.

At this season of the year grip is
particular active in scattering seeds of
destruction. The temptation is con
stant to take chances of catching cold,
going out without extra wraps, leaving
off flannels if the weather is rainy get
ting the feet wet. And to have the
grip is no longer a joke. No more se
rious ailment hag come to plague hu
manity during this contury. It is es
timated that the grip has been directly
or indirectly responsible for more
deaths than yellow fever and cholera
combined. Beware of the grip.

F. M. Poo is equal to almost any
occasion when manual labor is required,
but Tub Mail called him down a few
weeks ago when we installed him as
pressman on our John Washington
power press, that works by hand. In
cowboy parlance the animal bucked
with him, and tho tightor he pulled
the cinch the harder it buckod, and it
flew into a multiple of many parts, in
many corners of the office. This was re
peated with nearly every impression of
tho paper and F. M's. impression of the
hilarious conduct of an innocent hand
press was out-distanced only by his
disgust for tho thing. Fifty papers in
an hour and a half's time was .unprofit
able to tho office and a second invita
tion to desist from his cold blooded
execution was unnecessary. He will
soon publish a pamphlet on "What I
know, and what 1 don't want to know
about a John Washington hand press.'
Christmas is tho escape day of hu
man generosity; it is tho day upon
which almost everybody buys some
thing for somebody. Before purchas
ing that something step in and see
what Wolters has tq show you.
L. Siihiodlor's larg-3 ntw resiJenca
in southwest Medford is completed and
tho gentleman and his family are now
pleasantly domiciled therein. The
main building is 14x20 feet in size
with an ell 16x1!) both two stories high,
and a one story addition 12x20. The
house is a thing of beauty as viewed
from the outside, the architectural de
sign being imposing and up to date,
while the interior is finished through
out in natural wood and two rooms have
added the m odern east lake finish.
If the "bouse is a beauty on the outside
it must be doubly so on the inside.
Two porches are as well added and as
neatly constructed as in tho remainder
of the building. Three coata of paint
is about one mori than the average
house in Medford can boast of but this
one can do it. Sbawver and Nich
olson were the builders of this fine
dwelling which fact is a guarantee as
to it's beifeg substantially and artis
tically constructed.
"Costly thy habit as thy purse can
buy: rich but not gaudy, for the ap
parel oft proclaims the man." The
foregoing is a clothing ad Shakesper-re
wrote a few years ago. The same ad
will apply to Wolters' line of gent's
furnishing goods "rich but not gaudy."
Sunday afternoon's freight bad on
board near seventy tramps. Fearing
le3t they would encroach upon tho hos
pitality of Ashland thirty-one of them
stopied off in Medford and waited for
Motukiy's freight. A collection was
taken about tho city to provide some
thing for them to eat and a place to
sleep. A quarter of beef, potatoes,
bread and other articles wore bought
for them and after an evening meal,
cooked by themselves near Mr. Klip
pel's lumber yard, they were given
sleeping room in tho Clarendon barn.
They had three meals off of our people
and took the afternoon freight for the
south. In conversation with one of the
freight breakmen wo learned that
many of these supposedly unfortunate
working men out of employment were
nothing more nor less than bums a
genteel elos of bums who live upon the
hospitality of the people when they
have ample funds in their pockets to
buy their own meals. Says tho break
man, "Take the overalls and blouses
o'.l of some of them fellows and you
will find a better suit of clothes than
the average man dare hope to wear.
They are human leeches. If the rail
road was to refuse to curry them free,
half of that crowd would step up to
this window and buy tickets. It is an
insult to generosity to feed thorn."
There can bo no finer. Christinas
present than one of those hanging
lamps at Wolters besides being things
of beauty they are joys to the house
hold. For tho past few months there has
been employed on the farm of Jas. Ham
lin a young man by the nnme of C. G.
Tasker. Somo three or four weeks ago
while Mr. Hamlin was ill in bed he
gave young Tasker permission to sign
his (Uamlin's) name to nn order for
goods on some of our merchants. This
order was accepted all right, but it ap
pears that Tasker did not stop at sign
ing the one order but forged Mr. Ham
lin's name to several others which
wero, like tho first ono, accepted by
our business men. Tho amount ob
tained, in clotlting and cash by these
forgeries reached to a sum in tho vi
cinity of $100. Last Thursday . the
young man came to Medford with two
of these forged orders and upon pre
senting ono for $22.40 at Anglo fc Ply
mule's store received clothing in ex
change. Another one, for $22.50, was
cashed by A. A. Davis. Friday morn
ing T. J. Hamlin, son of the old gen
tleman, came to Medford and upon
learning of Tasker's maneuvers swore

The convention of the Christian
Woman's Board of Mission for
Josephine and Jackson counties
was held in Medford last Thursday
and was quite well attended. The
convention was held at the Christ

organization. Two sessions of
the convention were held, one in
the forenoon and one in the after
noon, and much good work is re
ported to have been accomplished,
in the evening State Organizer Mrs.
Eli Fisher gave a very able address
in behalf of the work, taking as her
subject the Bible passage, "Go ye
into the world and preach the gos
pel to all nations." A recitation by
Mrs. G. L. Webb was one of the
principle features of the evening's
program as were also two solos by
Myrtle liigby. There was quite a
large attendance in the evening
and all who attended felt better fo r
being there.
Royal Raking Powder lias all the
Honors In Strength and Value
20 Per Cent, above its ear
est Competitor.
The noyal Baking Powder has the
enviable record of having received the
highest award for articles of its class
greatest strength, purest ingredien:s,
most perfectly combined whorevcrex
hibited in competition with others. In
the exhibitions of former years, at the
Centennial, at Parish Vienna and at the
various State and Industrial fairs,
where it has been exhibited, judges
have invariably awarded the Royal
Baking Powder tho highest honors.
At tho recent World's Fair tho ex
aminations (for the baking powder
awards "were made bv the experts of
tho chemical divisinn of the Agricul
tural Department at Washington. -The
official report of the tests of tho baking
powders which wore made by this de
partmunt for tho specific purpose of
ascertaining which was the best, and
which has been made public, shows the
leavening strength of tho Koyol to be
160 cubio inches of carbonic gas jior
ounce of powder. Of tho cream of tar
tar baking powders exhibited at tho
Fair, the next highest in strength thus
tested contained but 133 cubic inches of
leavening gas.- The othor powders
gave an avorago of 111. Tho Royal,
therefore, was found of 20 per cent,
greater leavening strength than its
nearest competitor, and 44 per cent,
abovo the average of all the other
tests. Its superiority in other res
pects, however, in the quality of the
food it makes as to fineness, delicacy
and wholo-omeness, could not be meas
ured by figures.
It is these high qualities, known and
appreciated by tho women of the coun
try for so many years, that have caused
tho sales of tho Royal Baking Powder,
as shown by statistics, to exoeed the
sales of all other baking powders com
bined. If you want goods at bottom cash
prices go to Cranfill & Hutchison, tho
finest ducorated storo iu town. They
