' Xo less than forty people have
arrived in Medford from various
points of the east during the last
jveek and all are here to remain.
La grippe is no respector of per
son or locality. It catches the high
jand the low and rages at all points
of the compass. While there have
ibeen, and still are, many cases in
Medford no fatalities are reported.
& fact which, speaks well for the
gkill of our medical pratitioners.
The Oregon Pacific railroad has
been sold for $200,000 to New York
parties. This is a turn in affairs
which is pleasing to the business
jnen of this valley. . Jt was reported
p. few weeks ago that the Southern
Pacific was contemplating its pur
chase, and this was not just what
Pregon shippers wished for.
Ix view of the Tact that Monday
jsthe Greek Sunday, Tuesday the
day of rest among the Persians,
Wednesday among the Assyrians,
Thursday among the Egyptians,
Fridav amoa? the Turks and Sat
iorday among the Jews, it is plain
that the man who has conscien-j
$ious scruples against wording on
fsunday can't do anything else than'
join the aoble order of the Sons of
Best. . ' " -
These dirty ,opium consuming Cm
namenare peculiar people and when
they resort to humor it is usually Jar
fetched. For instance, Ah Wing is
jn the penitentiary at; Deer Lodge,
Tenn., for life. He heard that all
Chinamen who dp not register must
be deported. He has not registered,
but has intimated that he" is ready
to be sent back to China. What is
io be done with a man who has no
jaore sense of humor than that?
i'T a
The question, "what does a man
J)uy when he purchases a title to a
. farm?" has often been ask'ecl, but
fiofc jsatisiactonly determined. rom
pajB the Globe-Democrat, it is plain
thai he buys the ground,' of course,
ftnd all the buildings erected on it,
Whether they are mentioned or not.
He always buys all tie fences, but
not material once used, then taken
down and laid aside, nor material
purchased for a new fence' unless
Jhey are especially mentioned. He
also buys all adjuncts necessary to
Jhe farm except implements ' and
machinery. For instance, if" there
js a pile of bean .poles cut and once
ased they are the sellers property,
'Unless specified as sold. Standing
trees and trees that "have fallen or
blown down go' with the ground,
but if cut down and made into cord
wood, they become personal and
pust be specified in the sale.
The fee system for connty officers
a Oregon was done away with by
fhe last legislature to' take efiect

countv officers throughout the
State will simply draw fixed sal
aries, in most' cases much" lower
than the fees of their offices would
amount to. The next clerk'pf Jack

Editor Medforb Majl, Vour
Special Edition of Dec. 1st came
duly to hand, and I have read with
interest your excellent and valu
able write-up of the Rogue river
country. It contains much infor
mation that would be greatly- ap
preciated by, and valuable to, east
ern persons who ' are dissatisfied
with their present condition and
surroundings, and by others who
may contemplate .. emigrating to
some portion of the Pacific coast.
Every Jackson county reader of
TnE Mail should do his share
ward distributing information con
cerning the resources, climate,
lands, etc, of the county by mail
ing .one cr rpore copies of this spec
ial edition to friends, acquaintances
or others in the eastern states, and
I feel that the individuals as well
as the country, would be benefitted
by such action.
.One of the present drawbacks to
the success of the valley is too Large
an area of uncultivated land and
too many farms of such a large area
that they are only partially culti
vated, and therefore not very profit
able 'to the owners. If we could
divert some of the large immigra
tion that is sure to corae to the
coast, within the next two years, to
your valley, you would soau see a
great change the farms won la
be greater jii number and smaller
in area, say in parcels of 40, SO or
160 acres each, and much more
thoroughly cultivated, thereby con
siderably increasing the yield per
acre. Many more orchards would
be set out by these new comers and
the country now famous for its
rnagmheent Iruits would increase
and extend that reputatiou many
fold. With this increased popula
tion, composed'largely of sober, in
dustrious, saying people, and j-our
lands so largely and well cultivated,
your towns would be the first to
feel the- effects of the good times
thai would follow and would rap
idly increase in population too, as
well as in manufactnries, trade and
wealth, which would place them in
such a condition as would practic
ally make them independent and
effected very little by the panics
and so called "hard times" that are
periodically felt in America. It
would render all our lands, much
of which is now unproductive, read
ily saleable and at greatly increased
values. Lands now selling at an
average g from $20 to $30 per acre,
would soon appreciate to $5J and
$100 per acre. This large increase
in values would also be felt on the
assessment rolls by reducing the
rate of taxation by nearly one-half
and dividing the whole tax among
a greater number of taxpayers. A
great many of the modern improve
ments would come by reason
of this increased population and
wealth, viz, good water works, af
fording water power for manufac
turies at a low cost, affording pro
tection from conflagrations, water
for flushing sewer?, thufl contribut
ing to the sanitary condition of the
towns, electric lights, and in time a
system of inter urban electric rail
ways would no doubt pay. These
latter would reach out in all direc
tions, furnishing transportation for
not only the people, but also for the
j , u ,
gram and produce which could be
hauled by the electric cheaper than
by teamii. Their supplies could
also be cheaply taken out into the
country from the shipping points
on' the Southern Pacific railroad.
Such systems of railways are in op
eration in certain districts in the
eastern states and they are 'riot only
a great convenience to the public
but pay handsome profits to their
stockholders. To my mind there
is now no portion of this northwest
country that can offer so many sub
stantial advantages to the intend
ing emigrant as the Rogue river
valley." There he can find in
abundance, soil of the choicest and
most fertile arid at moderate prices;
a climate unsurpassed except by
California the winters are not long
and'wet as on Puget Sound, nor
extremely cold as in Eastern Wash
ington, Oregon ' and . Idaho. You
have a vast wealth in your timber
on, and mineral within your hills
and" mountains, and 'which a few
years hence will be very -important
factors contributing to your pros
perity. Hops,; which contribute so
largely to the wealth and prosperity
of the rich and lertilc valleys on
Puget SPund; the Willamette river
and in 'California, can without
doubt, be successfully raised in the
Rogue river yalley.' The profits of
this industry, as you are doubtless
aware1, are quite large, often rang
ing from $100 to $500 per acre--
the former is considered a low ay-
erage profit. T hope to' be able 'tp
interest some large growers in the
establishment' of an experimental
hop farm, and if the experiment
proves successful, you can look forr
ward to the - time when Jackson
county wilj rank as a large producer
of this valuable commodity. A
large area of your lands are well
adapted' to producing alfalfa, of
which three to six crop3 can bp cut'
per yeajr' and the yield brings ' from
six to ten tons per acre, usually con
sidered 'worth $4 to $5 per 'tori in
the stack it sells here readily at
$14 Dujf ton, baled. When it comes
into general use it will largely 'tfirp
plant'the native grasses, arid "en
able the raising of a much larger
number of fatter and sleeker 'catjJe
and'hogs than are 11'pw raised, and
which will find a ready market at
good prices in tbe cities 'on Puget
So&hd and elsewhere. ' There ire
also" many thousand acres of choice
larid on the foothill$ surrounding
the valley that are specially adapted
for1 the growing of fruits. These
lands when in bearing orchards
will be fully as productive as those
immediately surrounding Ashland,
and brings the same large prices,
yiz, from $200 to $500 per acEe, In
fact you have a glorious future be
fore you,1 but in order to insure the
greatest measure of success, and
that reasonably soon., every one
must put their shoulder to the
wheel of enterprise and progress.
If you have 100 copies of your
special edition to spare, kindly send
them with bill, to yours faithfully,

Medford Business College,
The winter term of the Medford bus
iness cpllosre will open January 1, 189-1.
It is desired that all students bo present
at the opening and biigin the now year
.by taking a step in the right direction,
and by no doing fit themselves for the
higher, nobler work of life.
The present term of this institution
is just closing, and a very pleasant,
prolitablo one it has been for both
teacher and pupils; 47 pupils having
been enrolled, with 43 in regular at
tendance. The numbur enrolled one
year ago to data was 27, with 22 in reg
ular attendance; the increase of this
year over hist'is 20 in enrollment and
21 in regular attendance. The number
of visitors enrolled for the present
term is 1G3; the number of visitors en
rolled last year to date was 84.
Tho normal class consists gencrallj
of teachers who are reviewing school
work in general, some preparing for
state diplomas, and others for eoiinty
certificates. 'VVe wish to state here
that during tho three years that the
Medford business College has bjeo in
operation and among the great number
of students who, during that time,
have taken the teach ors examination
for both county certificates and state
diplomas only three have failed. In
the commercial department students
are moving along gradually. Silver
and gold coin have both been deinoni
tized, and college scrip is the only legal
tender. Hard times are not thought
of and students in general are becom
ing very comfortable, and in their
everyday work of commercial and col
lege business are forming such habits
as will be of use to them in tho real
atTttirs of every day life.
Classes in the English, preparatory,
shorthand and telegraphy departments,
are all making rapid progress, and the
school in general i in a very satisfac
tory condition. The college is now in
its new building, which, for conven
ience, beauty and comfort is second
to none on the coast, and the location is
one of the most desirable in the state
of Oregon.
The college, which ' was at first
thought to bo only an experiment, is
now a grand success, drawing stu
dents not only from ths different
parts of our own state but from neigh
boring states, and general satisfaction
is given in every department, and the
college is in a promising condition.
We owe much to our friends for our
success. "A friend in need is a friend
indeed." and as we write, the names of
many Mends comes before our mind,
friends who havesTood by us, supported
us in every way possible and watched
with interest the general growth of the
school. ' And we wish to take advan
tage of Ihisopportunity andsuy to those
friends in the language of the heart,
thank you for the part you have taken,
and in conclusion will say, we wish
all a Merry Christmas and a Happy
New Year.

Fighting the Apple Tree Borer.
Every year in December I go
through my orchard and make a
carpful examination for apple tree
borers. I have just finished my
work in this direction for 1893. I
have never sten so much damage
done in any one year as in this.
Usually the borer has been content
to work near the surface, thus be
ing easily reached by the point of
the knife, but tins year 1 louna
him deeply burrowing in the very
honrt of the tree. Sometimes I have
been compelled to make great
gashes into the body of the tree,
following tho track of the borer up
ward for several ' inches irom tne
point where ho entered the trunk,
and sometimes his course would bo
downward far into the roots of the
tree. It requires patience tq get
rid of these pests, and I know of no
better way than 1 have described.-
