W. M. Smith and George and Jeff
Hamlin were circulating a petition
about Medlord this week asking for
signatures and receiving a great mnny
of them. The petition asks the county
court to cause a road to be laid out and
put in shape for use, from a point about
two miles south of Medford, at the
northeast corner of the Hamlin dona
tion claim, and running south along
the west line of above named land to
the southwest corner of the Edsall
farm; thjnct west on line between
Bennett's and Gallagher's farms
and then soutfj to the old military
road, where the new road will termi
nate. There were HO names to the
petition. The road as mapped out
would save about two miles of travel to
nearly all farmers of that locality who
come this way to do their trading.

Last week we wrote a small item
on the weather a subject which all
newspapermen resort to when hard
pushed for something to write about
and the "prints" are shouting for
copy. This, however, was not our fix
The weather was so fine that we
couldn't resist the temptation to say
something, but when we put that item
on paper with printer's iuk it was one
of the bisrsrest lies one could well
print. It was a bigger lie than that
deer storr D. S. ountrs tells is an
esasrsreration. The snow was falling
at the time this item was printed in
darkening whiteness, and it didn't
auit until somethins like five inches
was spread at our feet. The weather
business with us has forever been
settled it must be understood that it
is pleasant all the time.
Bamboo sroods make as pretty

Last week ex-Landlord M. Purdin
sold his real estate in Medford, com
prising a house and lot, corner C and
Xinth streets, and two vacant lots
nearly opposite oil C street, to Mer
chant F. K. Deuel, consideration be-
; " tween 700 and Si)0. As soon as the
sale had been consummated Mr. Purdin
began arrangements for the removal of
his family from this city to some Cali
fornia point, and on Monday ho left for
San Francisco, his family to follow
- about January first, or soon-r should
he be successful in finding a location to
his liking before that time. These
people have a great many friends in
Medford who sympathize with them in
their reverse of circumstances and will
wish them success in any new field.

The social at Mrs. J. H. Faris'
residence Tuesday evening of this
week was attended by from fifty to
sixty people and just a splendid time
was bad. Singing, games and much
talk were the routine exercises of the
evening, with ice cream and cake re-?
freshments as accompaniments. The
refreshments were simply excellent
so everybody declared. Mrs. Faria
has a splendid home and understands
full well how to make all people wel
come who enter her doors. The re
ceipts ware So. It is the intention of
the Presbyterian people to give these
socials at" intervals of four or six
weeks during the winter and at, dif
ferent homes about the city.

Charlie Damon will give a dance
in the opera house on Saturday evening
of this week. Charlie has been to a
big expense in tilting up the hall
and has it now in pretty good shape.
The improvements made have been a
continued draft of funds from his purse,
while the incoming tariff has been de
cidedly light. The Saturday nijrht
party is to be a sort of a benefit to Mr.
Damon, and as the tickets are only fifty
cents each it is safe to presume that
many will chip in who do not dance.
Charlie deserves mst a little remem
brance for his enterprise in fitting up
the house so nicely.

Dr. E. B. Picket made the pur-!
chase last week of a fane team of driving
horses and this week he is fitting him
self out with a new carriage and a fine
nickel-plated harness. The horses are
from the stock farm of D. B. Mc
Knight, at Tolman, Oregon, and are
blooded stock. They are four and six
years old, came from fast stock, and
one of them has a track record of 2::io.
They are fine drivers and the doctor is
justly proud of them, but, is not our
doctor getting a little foxy? Fast driv
ing horses almost always travel a road
that leads to a fast trotting ground.
Lots of farmers prefere chain to

The Kpworth League society of the
Methodist church will give a social
this. Friday, evening at the residence
of Mr. and Mrs. D. T. Lawton. The
league is endeavoring to get a few
nickels and dimes together with which
to purchase a carpet for their church,
and as Mr. and Mr. Lawton are known
to be most hospitable' entertainers,
the good time you are sure to have and
the purpose for which you contribute
ought to be an incentive sufficient to
prompt a liberal attendance. You are
all asked to bo there.

It was about a year ago now that
evidence in the Salstrom land contest
was being taken. The contest was
made bv E. G. Salstrom against Miss
Anna C. Salstrom, he alleging as
grounds for contest that the young

law. The officials at the Roseburg

Anna C. Salstrom. The findings of
the officials will appear in these col
umns next week.

gotten into one of the switch boxes

news came from Norlh Yamhill, Ore

proved tho first report to be true and
upon Davis being confronted with
this evidence of his double life he
denied all. but found it convenient to
leave this immediate locality soon
thereafter, since which time ho has
been working in mines at Gold Hill
and Cinnabar. A warrant was sworn
out for his arrest several days ago by

of Deputy Sheriff Barnes, who located
him at the Cinnabar mine and took

Conductor Dyer and Engineer Lewis,
together with Fireman Tryer and
a whole lot of other fellows, turned the
short line engine Tuesday. They be
gan the work at 10 o'clock a. m. and at
1 p. m. the work was completed, and
not a trip was missed. The reason
for turning was that more fuel was
required to keep up steam as the en
gine has leen running, and a general
inconvenience all round.
The postal car on Xo. 15. Friday
evening week, was lighted with the
much talked of Pintsch gas, the first
car on this road to be so equipped.
This gas was placed in the mail car as
a test, to ascertain if the gas was the
most profitable light to be used in cars.
It gives a much better light than coal
oil and is cheaper, and will no doubt be
placed in all tho company's paseetiger
cars. The gas is stored in tanks under
neath the cars, and this mode of light
ing has bLen in general use on a
number of roads in the east for some
time, giving eminent satisfaction.
It is reKrted that a change will soon
be made in the "engine runs" between
Portland and Ashland, wherebv seven
engineers and nine firemen will ba laid
off. The change will affect trains Xo.
15 and Hi, and is made by the iutroduc
tion of the new "hog" engines which
the company is placing on their roads
for fast aiV'nger service. There will
be but one change of engineers from
