News Once a Week.
While a Mail reporter was mak
iug his round of inspection this week,
he dropped in upon Mr. Middleton,
the gentlomau who has the curing of
meats in hand at the Southern Oregon
Pork Paeking company's rooms in
north Medford. He round the gentle
man "out of sight," almost, in carved
pork in its various forms and stages of
curing. Mr. Middleton is a perfect
gentleman in every respect and hav
ing been in his line of work 'or a great
number of years it did not reauire any
great amount of time for him to under
stand the points which a newspaper
man most desired, to get at. The first
bit of information given was that up
to date the company had killed and
dressed 1373 hogs. This meat has all
been trimmed, salted and the hums
packed and smoked under Mr. Middle
ton's personal supervision. On this
side of the building our reporter found
a stack of bacon piled up like cord
wood and almost ceiling high. This
the gentleman explained was going
through a curing process. On the
other side, and in fact on all sides, were
large piles of bacon and hams which
-were awaiting the advancement to
another stage of curing which ulti
mately leads to the smoke room. The
meat looked white and clear and was
as sweet to the smell as a June rose.
It was last year that the company lost
a great amount of money on its meats
by lacfc 01 proper curing, out tne -gentleman
stated that no such misfor-
. tune would befall the company this
year, if his experience and reputation
for sweet meat would profit anything.
There were scattered about the estab
lishment several large tanks filled
with hams, the same being in the
sweet pickle. The smoke room was
filled with hams and bacon almost
to the roof, and still there are tons
upon tons of meat yet be thus treat-
. ed this season. As the reporter looked
about him his mind went back to the
brief mention which he had made df
this institution in other issues of
The Mail, ajid he could but th:nk
how very weak they were when com
pared with the actual business of the
company. While this company sup
plies the local markets hereabouts
. with meats it as well reaches beyond
our state lines, and much of it goes
into many different California locali
ties. Today the company will ship a
ear load of bacon to San Francisco.
Mr. Middleton is here only under one
year's contract, but it is more than
probable that he will be retained
longer. His thirty years experience
places a premium upon his services.
The Mail, wants to see success crown
the effects of the Southern Oregon
Pork Packing company it"s lots -of
good to southern Oregon.

The prospects for the erection of
several fine dwelling houses in. this
city for the coming season are most
flattering. As a matter of positive fact
the prospects brighten with the advent
of each new day. and in two - instances
which we have in mind the plans and
specifications have already been made
by Architect Bennet and as soon as the
contractors shall have been given
ample time to submit figures on their
construction, work will commence on
the same. One of these is to be built
by Merebant E. E- Thompson, upon
his property in southwest Medford.
The building will be 30x40 feet in size,
two stories high and will be Eastlake
in general design. At the front will be
a balcony, piazza and a bay window,
the bay surmounted by a lower. At
the rear will be a broad veranda, sur
rounding two sides of the house all
the same southern residence. The es
timated eost of the building, complete,
is $1000. Attorney V. H. Parker is
another gentleman who is going to in
vest a few of his shekels in a splendid
home dwelling. It is to be built out
oa West Seventh street: will be a one
and a half story, eight-room, southern
eottage, 32x44 feet in size, and superb
in architectural design and finish. The
house will be modern in all its appoint
ments. It will be supplied with water
. throughout, bath rooms, china closets
and everything that convenience can
suggest. The cost of the building when
completed will be about fcJOUO. Archi

lent work on these jobs and they ean

Last week we mentioned the desti
tute circumstances of T. J. Henry and
family. No sooner was their condition
made known to the Ladies Benevolent
society of this city than did they at
once set to work to relieve the distress.
Saturday morning Mrs A. A. Kellogg,
acting for the society, began a solicit
ing tour among our merchant and in
a very few hours she had gathered to
gether about 303 pounds of provisions,
consisting bl potatoes, floury meats,
groceries fruits and jellies. These
together with several articles of wear
' ing apparel, donated by the ladies of the
church societies, were taken out to Mr.
Henry's place the same afternoon by
Mrs. Kellogg and W. H, Him bree. They
found Mrs." Henry sick jn bed, Mr.
Henry almost the shadow of a man,
and six children, ranging in age from
one and a half years to twelve, almost
destitute of clothing, and two of thom
barefooted. They had in the house
in the way of provisions, about fifteen
pounds of flour. The house is a poor
excuse of an affair, with open cracks
on all sides. The assistance came
none too soon to prevent extreme suf
fering, but what is troubling the good
ladies most just now is the . how of
further providing for their needs.
The only way which seems to be feasi
ble is to move them to Medford where
they can have medical attention, and
this will probably be done, provided a
house can be rented for their use.

We are told that a very amusing
spectacle was open to the view of sev
eral obsorvers receutly, in a justice
court room not a thousand miles out
side of Jackson county. A prisoner
was arraigned before the venerable
justice, where his honor sat clothed
with gold-rimmed glasses and a look of
much legal wisdom and amid a library
of leather bound printed law. A depu
ty district attornev appeared for the
state, but after extolling the merits of
the prisoner ho moved that, dismissal
bo written o:i the justice's big book.
"All right,'! says the judge, "You may
go your way a free man I discharge
you." uut betore permiiiing me pris
oner to leave the court room ho read
seventeen pages of law from a criminal
code in vindication of his acts, and
charged mileage for the distance cov
ered. This was a corker for the
prisoner's attorney, who would get no
fee unless he made his little talk in de
fense of his client. This he did in a
two hours' speech and at the close he
moved that his client be hoxorahly
discharged. "All right." says his
honor, ' I honorably discharge the
prisoner.'' The prisoner went his way
and the attorneys and judge figured

Last Saturday evening was one ol
heap good timeout at the M.Bellin
ger farm residence. It was the occa
sion of Mr. Bellinger's sixty-second
birthday and his good lady prepared
a little surprise celebration for him
in the shape of a bountiful supper of
roast turkey and its accompanying
jrood thincrs. and had also invited
several of their neighbors aud friends
to be present. There is almost always
something which occurs upon these
occasions which is really funny. The
funny thing connected with this was
that rather than allow Mr. B. to catch
onto the surprise part, Mrs. B. pre
pared the usual meal, and at the usual
hour, and permitted Mr. B. to eat
heartily thereor, in consequence oi
which when the turkey was served
later his disposition was nil right, but
the capacity had vanished. However,
the others present made good the defi
ciencies and a general, all 'round good
time was had. xnose present were

D. W. Crosby was absent from

"goneness" from familiar haunts here
abouts is explained by the following
from the Kiddle Enterprise: "Busi

A. A. Davis: "My mill closed
down last Saturday and will remain
closed until stmw time in March.
Why, do you ask? Well, the one and
only reason is, that I am paying more
for 'wheal right here in Medford than
is being paid at any other place in the
United States, and under this condi
tion of affairs it is impossible to ship
Sour to any market outside the valley.
When the mill has a supply of Hour on
