There was tan on the boards for
the boys about the city last Monday
night. A muscle dancer, direct from
the Midway Plaisance at San Francis
co, gave an entertainment, or rather a
small part of one, in Woolf 's hall, on
the evening in .Question. When the
dance had gotten nicely started Mar-1
shal Churchman decided it was not
just the proper line of amusement for a
strictly moral city, and proceeded to
arrest the performer and her male com
panion. The show stopped right there
and the marshal conducted his pris
oners out of the hall and, upon a prom
ise that they would leave the city, he
released them from custody. The fun
came a little later when several of the
young fellows got together and decided
upon sport galore. Several of those of
our male population, who ware in at
tendance, had gone to their respective
homes and were sleeping the sleep that
knows no awakening until the alarm
sounds at early morning, but their
slumbers, however, were disturbed by
a prolonged rap at the door. Upon
being awakened they were given to un
derstand by a couple of gentlemen
atauding on the porch that they were
wanted by the authorities as witnesses
in the dancers case, which was then
being tried by the city tribunal. All
sorts of excuses were offered, the prin
cipal one being that they knew nothing
of the nature of the showortbey would
not have been there which in some
cases was true. The excuses ia some
"instances were considered sufficient to
let the alleged witness off, but in others
nothing would answer other than their
presence before the chief magistrate
tind they were forthwith compelled to
dress and take a walk up town. Upon
reaching the supposed place of trial
it was given out that different ar-
nirji(Tiontfi Ytnrl Hn mnrfn and t.hv
guessed there would be no trial.
About twenty or more of the boys, who
had been waiting the result, then be

directions, and cigars, milk shakes.

Many of the sportive inclined gen
tlemen of Medford are now earnestly
discussing the advisability of build
ing a race track and preparing
fair grounds at some point not
a great distance from this city,
and they are very sanguine as
to the success of the project, should
it be properly agitated. There are two
or three localities suggested, either of
which could be had quite reasonably,
and easily put. in snaps. No particular
location has as yet been decided upon.
It is averred by those most interested
in the project that the Central Point
grounds are receiving little if any at
tention by way of repairs, and horse
men who have heretofore used this
track are talking of placing their
horses elsewhere lor work. This being
the case there is no good reason why
- Medford should not proceed at once to
prepare grounds of hr own. 'G. L.
Davis, in conversation with a Mail re
porter, stated that he was positive
enough work would be donated both
men and teams-to prepare the grounds.
Aside from several horsemen herea
bouts who would lend willing aid, it
might be expected that nearly all bi
cycle rider3 would donate several days'
work. Parties who are interested in
the matter are asked to call at I. M.
Mailer's store, iu this city, and inform
Mr. Davis of the amount of donation.

corner E and Tenth strefets, for four
'hundred acres of 'ange land, on Ante

ford. The land, Mr. Johnson states, is
well adapted for grazing purposes, and
that he is now engaged in cutting twen
ty acres of as fine hay from it as one
often sees. He is now out at the ranch
"superintending the hay harvest, and
soon after the Fourth he exnects to
move his family out. The gentleman
who formerly owned the land, and with
whom Mr. Johnson traded, is a Mr
Turnbow, from the Palouse country,

Some few days ago, as report goes,
one Stewart, of Seattle, who recently
bonded the McDonough mine, near
Tolo, came down from the Sound city,
having with him a prospective mine
buver in the person of an Englishman
named Phillips. A deal was made for
the mine but the necessary collateral
was not forthcoming in ready cash, and
Phillips borrowed a horse of McDon

he stated he could, by telegraph, get

the money. Instead of going to Jack
sonville he went to Central Point where
he left the horse and took the train for
Ashland. As he did not return a war
rant was issued for his arrest for theft
and he was caught at Ashland, taken
to Jacksonville and upon a preliminary
examination before Justice Dunlap was
discharged. There are all sorts of ru
mors going the rounds as to the partic
ulars in the case, but as they are of
little interest to others than those di
rectly mixed up in the affair we will
not print them.

The Watk"ins Dostofflce aud store.
about thirty miles south-west of Med
ford, was broken iuto on the night of
June IS, and ST0 in cash and gold dust
taken therefrom. Entrance: was effected
by cutting a hole in a pane of glass,
through which the hand and arm was
thrust and the inside fastening loos
ened. The thief overlooked a can set
ting on a shelf near where the $70 was
taken from, which contained $200 in
gold dust. M. A. Watkins, the post
master and owner of the store, is not
particularly sangniue as to the proba
bility of the thief's capture. He was
evidently someone familiar with the
place and a frequent visitor, as three
dogs, belonging to Mr. Watkins, are
usually noisy upou the approach of
strangers but upon this occasion not a
sound was made.

where a young man, without having
left town, wrote letters to a young lady
dated at all the principal cities in the
Union, his idea being to convince her
that he was a great travler. Wheu on
his return from his extended tour ho was
confronted with his letters, all decor

been written at home, he felt more like

It's a Good Mining Proposition.
J. W. Short was in from Bolt Mon
day, (laying his respects to Medford
friends and his subscription to The
Mail. The gentleman states that he
is getting ready to do some hydraulic
mining on his rrm, near Bolt. He
has twenty-live acres of good placer
grouud which, if the surrounding
mines' output of gold is any indica
tion, ought to turn out verv rich. Mr.
Short also owns about one and a quar
ter miles of the Foots creek bed
which is known to bo very rich. This,
however, is deeper gravjl and will re
quire more work to dovelopo than his
twenty-hve acres, which is only shal
low. He has been offered for his mines
double tho amount the wholo properly
cost him, but he don't care particularly
about unloading so promising a propo
sition right at present. There ore now
seven hydraulics working within a
mile of his place, and only about three-
quarters of a mile away 13 where that
big tunnel is being made by Seattle
parties. This tunnel is now in about
300 feet and is paving well, vet th
principal ledge has not been struck.

In the cdivOr's little garden arq peas

tribution of seeds by the Department
of Agriculture is simply nonsonso. We
haye plenty ot evidence or the tact, mat
the seeds are generally of such a poor
quality that it is wiser to buy of a seed
store." If tho Department would seek
and find rare varieties of plants for
trial in the nation's gardens and sent
them along, the work there would bo
valuable. Mind you, wo are not con
demning tho Department. Its work in
the promotion of pomology, mnmmolo

Parker Won the Race.
The hicycle race between Geo. S.
Parker, ofMe-lford. aud D. L. Mice, of
Ashland, came off hist Saturday after
noon and Parker was declared the win
ner. It was a five mile race, from Jack
sonville to Medfonl, and was for a purse
of $15 a ice $3u to the winner. The
start was made at the railroad crossing
near the court house. At just 3:40
Kobt. Galloway dropped the hat and
the -vheels began rolling and 6iit-en
minutes and oight seconds later the
timekeepers dropied the flags as
Parker crossed the lino Kice a minute
and tilty-two seconds behind. At the
start Parker fell behind about twenty
five feet and kent about this much
space between himself and Kica until
about three miles of the race had been
covered, when Rice's wheel began to
wabble and a few yards further he fell
to tho ground. Parker pulled bv and
was about thirty feet ahead when Riee
was mounted and coming after him.
From this point for a half mile it was a
hard struggle with Kice to recover but
the distance between Ihera kept grow
ing and when Parker came under the
wire Kice was a good hai! mile behind.
Another race is being arranged for
between the same parties and over the
same ground. This race will be for S."-0

The weather conditions are very
favorable to the growing crops. Wheat,
oats nnd barley have excellent growth:
they are cow approaching their ripen

are ripening rapidly and are now a;

termed the "littl-3 green bugs" hare
appeared on the heads of wheat during
the past ten days: they appear to have
started iu the southern counties. They
almost cover the head of the wheat and
as th bugs mature wings are developed
which "enable them to fly. These bugs keown as Aphis Avenue, or in
plaiu words, "Grain Aphis.'' They
