The dramatic entertainment
which was to have been given here
this week has been indefinitely
postponed, owing to the illness of
one of the performers.
In my communication last week,

"We have floor in our post
office building. Frank Brown and
Wilber Ashpole vere the mechanics
who finished the job, although Wm.
Brown assisted during the first part
of the job, but while attempting to
shave off the edge of a board the
knife, with which he was doing the
shaving, slipped and entered the
thick part of his leg, cutting a deep
gash. Dr. Officer dressed the
ound and at last accounts he was
getting along very well. .
Among the crowd that thronged
the streets of Medford last Saturday
I noticed Jacob Waltz, of Antelope,
Mrs. J. A. Jones, of Eagle Point,
and Miss Ora Woods, all of them
intent on buying goods. Your cor
respondent also had business with j
several gentlemen and ladies and
the result was that I did . not get
home until late, on account of the
crowd that was in Medford, notwith
standing that the day was anything
but pleasant, especially under foot,
and I have corne to the conclusion
that there must be some change
made for the accommodation of the
patrons of your business houses
who live at a distance for I noticed
one lady there who lives twelve or
fifteen miles from Medford, in two
different stores waiting for her turn
to trade. I would suggest that the
"city dads" pass an ordinance al
lotting a special day for each com
Tunnitv sav Monday and Tuesday
for the Medfordites, and we might
give them uniir 10 a. m., rest of the
week.excent Saturday: Wednesday
for Sams Valley, Thursday for the
Stickevites, Friday for Central
Point, "Jacksonville and the country
south of Medford and all day Sat
urday for Butte creek, Antelope
and Dry creek, for we have to go to
the Hub at least once a week, and
in the winter time it works a hard
ship on us to have to wait as I had
to last Saturday. I . would suggest
to The Mail publishers that they
emyloy an assistant to attend to
the wants of those who have busi
ness willi .them and not keep us
waiting as I had to last Saturday
why one would think that there was
an auction sale there by - the looks
of the crowd. And while on the
subject of Ti'.E -.Mail allow me to
congratulate you upon the neat
appearance of the paper in its new
form and make-up. One of your
lady readers, at. this place, was
hoard to remark that '"llie paper
was just- delightful, and 'all it cost
was one dollar and a. half a year."
