Last Sunday Rev. E. S. Craven
performed the marriage ceremony at
his residence in Medford, which joined
in the bonds of wedlock Mr. Wm. P.
Rhoads and Mrs. Mattie Boussum, both
of Medford. Mr. Rhoads is an indus
trious, hard working young man of
good habits and spoken of in the best
of terms by his many friends. Tho
bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
J. B. Cottrell, living east of this city.
one is a very renned ana industrious
young lady and there seems no other
way but they must acquire their share
of this world's chattels. Both are
members of the Methodist church
of this place and are in regular atten
dance upon divine worship. The
Mail, hopes, as does all their friends
that the fondest anticipation of thier
brightest dreams may be Inters until
the end of earth's career shall have
been reached. They will soon move to
Max Mullers saw mill, at which place
Mr. Rhoads is head sawyer, and who
will start the mill to work for the sea
son s run.
Green is tho fash ionablo color, these
daysl Not for dresses, but for wrap
ping paper. You can see it on the
streets, in the homes, in the farmers'
wagons as you pass them on their way
home from town. 'Tis used for wrap
ping all manner of dry goods, boots
and shoes, hats and caps, and ladies'
and gent s furnishing goods. All comes
from the "New York Store," Medford.
Mr. Hughes, recently from Texas,
and now residing with his family at
Phoenix, met with an accident Tues
day morning which came near result
ing fatally. He was crossing the mill
race and stepped onto the side of a
board which turned under his foot and
he was thrown down, striking his left
side on the upturned edge of the board.
One rib was broken and a contusion of
the kidney and spleen was caused. His
life was despaired of during all of Tues
day and the night following, but he
was reported a little easier Wednesday
noon and the hemorrhage, caused by
the contusion, somewhat less. Dr.
Cole is attending him.

There is talk of a foot race in Med

the occasion a verv interesting one for
those who make the start with him.

was at once sent for, who, on reaching
the place, found him unconscious. A

Miss Eleanor Marks, aged 22, of Mt
Prospect, Ind., several days ago was
seized with a severe cold. She rapidly
grew worse and apparently died. She
was prepared for burial and funeral
services were held. While the coffin
was being borne from the hearse to the
grave, a faint tapping attracted the pall
bearers, and upon the coffin lid being
raised she was found to be alive. She
was taken borne and rapidly recovered.
Miss Marks said she was conscious of
all that passed while ehe was being pre
pared for burial, but that she was un
able to give any sign until the fear of
burial finally roused her into action.

This is the result of the action of the
Mutual Life Insurance company of New

freely. Many of the house holders are
employed in the chops of the Central
Railroad company and the foreclosure
will prove an especially hard blow to
Eight of eleven cows which supplied
milk to the Stockton insane asylum were
found to be afflicted with consumption.
The test was made by several physicians
unfler the direction of Dr. Rugglea of
the state board of health. The first ani
mal killed was a 5-year-old cow. This
animal was selected by the doctors with
the hope that a fair test of the virus
might be obtained, as it showed the least
increase of temperature after inocula
tion. The virus is injected to develop
symptoms if the disease is hidden in the
animals. The result of the experiment
was a surprise. The animal was found
