MS OF THE CITY.
The literary entertainment and
musicale given at the opera house last
Thursday evening by the Episcopal
Guild of Medford was a decidedly rare
treat for the audience. The program
was replete with vocal and piano solos,
vocal quartette, piano and guitar duets,
zither.solos and recitations, all of which
were rendered in a most pleasing man
ner and nearly all participants were
encored to which they very graciously
responded. Each and everyone who
took part in the entertainment did so
nicely and were so well received that
to write of them individually would be
but a repetition, the one with the other.
There was a large attendance and the
door receipts were $47.80, which will
be used, by the Guild to assist in re
seating their church. The ladies de
sire us to thank all those who attended
for their kind and generous patronage,
especially are thanks tendered those
who assisted in the evening's program.
The public school band furnished ex
cellent music at the opening of the ex
ercises. If we were to ciose our
brief mention and omit a word or two
of praise for the hall decorations we
would be guilty of an unpardonable
oversight. The stage was arranged in
the most beautiful manner the writer
ever saw it, in fact it was a veritable
modern home with all the dainties and
delicacies of tapestry and furniture.and
to this were added myriads of chrysan
themum bouquets, and still another
beauty was that of choice roses and

Witnesses, Rev. Dr. Eahier and. Mrs.
Craven. There don't a great many
people know just who J. A. Branden
burg is, but when we relate that J. A.
and Bert are identical, everybody will
know. These young people have
friends in Medford in numbers that
'twould take a long time to count who
will be glad of this opportunity to con
gratulate. After the ceremony the
happy twain drove to the Gritfin creek
farm where they will reside. Thk
Mail is always brimming full of con
gratulations upon these occasions and
we are none the less so right now. We
like to see everybody happy and upon
occasions of this nature we feel satis
fied that at least two people are in that
state hence kind words are always
showered upon them.
