News Once a Week.
You may talk of county sent re
movals', of railroad extensions and
diverse other exciting topics we
might mention, but nothing so com-
J pletely excites as does a reported uew
gold find. Over in Odd Fellows ceme
tery W. P. Dodge is putting down a
well. He is down into the earth with
his drill about 230 feet. The last few
days he worked there came to light of
v day from this hole several pieces of
quartz. In these pieces of quartz was
found cemented small particles of gold
that is, some of our citizens of sup
Dosedlv good mineral judgement say it
is gold, while others who claim to be
endoowed with an Intellect equal to
the occasion claim the mineral is not
"old. and base their assertions upon
the fact that acids will eat it, but as to
iust what it is. they saynota word.
However, there is considerable mineral
showing up, and if it be gold, there is
not a question but that there is plenty
of it. And while we are saying a word
or two in this line, it would be good
-"Togic for us to agree with our good

the richest gold mines of Southern

further that these may be a greater or

Br. Pickel assisted by Dr. Wait,
performed last Friday a very difficult
. bit of surgery upon the person of the
two-vear-old son ol Dr Geary, tne same
being that of an operation for the per
manent cure ol strangulated inguinal
hernia, and is known as Basinni's oper
ation. Tne litue leiiow went tnrougn
the ordeal, which required one and a
half hours' time, in fine shape and will
f undoubtedly be all right in a couple of
weeks. All possible precaution was
used to prevent the admission into the
incision" made, of any foreign sub
stances or microbe germs, and as to
how successful these operators were is
best told by relating that no fever has
been manifest since the operation was
performed. This 19 an entirety new

C. L. Magnum, a mining man of
, Tacoma, writes us requesting a copy
k of The Mail containing the Forest
A creek write-up. That is right, brother,
we wrote up Forest creek, and the
y sterling worth of that mining district
is exciting attention in all lands. We
only mention this one as a sample of
hundreds of letters we get almost daily
from business men in all parts of the
world, who have heard of our efforts
to herald to the countrv at large some
thing of this country s real merit from
a mininsr standpoint. We are Working
early and late to advance the best in

And still with a steady flow the
immense stock product of the great
Rogue riyer valley finds its way to
marts of our big "cities. From early
September until the gambols of the
ft quadruped young make merry the
rancher's prospects for gold in his
I purse, and they seek the nutritious
range pasture in early spring is the
procession of loaded stock cars kept in
A motion between valley points and the
cities north and south. Today it wUl
be cattle, next week hogs, and the week
' after sheep will receive the shippers
attention. This -round of shipment is
kept in motion for at least seven
months of the year, and many thou
sands of dollar through these chan-
nels reach the pockets o? the farmers
and stockmen of the valley. Six car
loads of sheep, in number 601, were
loaded and shipped from Medford to
San Francisco, by J. W. Hockersmith,
last Monday.
See the bargains at the Racket,

W. E. McCauley: "I was out at
wthe Hon. J. H. Stewart big fruit fsrrn
last week. I found six or eight men at
wj-ifV in hia rnvhrrt nriinine unci fr&t-
ting ready for plowing. Mr. btewart
is figuring on an Immense crop of fruit
this coming year, ana u anyone gets a
crop he surely ought to, as bis trees
' are in an excellent condition. He has
now on hand a large bin of last year's
crop of Newtown pippiii9. Messrs.
Weeks & Orr are also -pruning, as
well as spraying their several acres of
, fine orchard". Their trees are also in
fine shape. Let me incidentally remark
that if everything goes well there will
be the largest crop of fruit ever known
in the valley, next season. The light
crop last year gave the trees a splend id
chance for a good growth."
If you want a bargain, go to the
Racket, Saturday. .
C. F. Lewis, the present very com
petent engineer on the Medford-Jack-sonville
shortline, has a notion in his
head that he would like a situation on
San Francisco's proposed railroad and
to give the officials of that road an
aidea as to how he stands with his home
.people a paper bearing a recommenda- j
tion was being circulated among the
business men of this city this week for
signatures and one sheet wouldn't
hold the names of our best and most
reputable citizens who were anxious to
pen their endorsement of so worthy a
gentleman. The Mail hopes that
Charlie gets that which he seeks he
deserves the best of everything that's
going. He is competent, thorough
and trustworthy.

A new deal has been made in the
partnership of the Clarendon hotel, T.
A. Ireland having sold his interest in
the house to Messrs J. W. Toniason
and J. Gilchrist, both of Grants Pass.
The deal was consummated Monday and
possession taken Wednesday. The
new proprietors seem to be possessed
with the requisite amount of hustle
necessary to proper management of a
public hostelry. They propose to ar
range the interior of the houso and
re-liuish entire, in fact add all to it
necessary to make it first-class in every
respect. Air. Gilchr is a gentleman
of family and they are now installed
as full and uni-cstMcted monarchs in
all entirety.
Thompson & Meeker have some
great bargains, still, but are rapidly
closing out the winter stock.
-r-In the line of things novel and
unique nothing has presented itself to
us for some time with as much favor as
has a copy of a neatly printed news
paper, which was handed us this week
by M. L. Alford, the same being the
work of the daughters of L. B. Apple
gate, who lives in Swan lake valley,
Klamath county. The paper is four
page, four columns to the page, and
all printing is done with a lead
pencil. It contains editorial, local and
general news, communications, press
comments and advertisements. It is a
thing of beauty and Mr. and Mrs.
Alford have every reason to be proud
of their nieces.

Last fall Jos. Hill purchased Tokio,
a young trotting stallion, from F. K.
Deuel, who brought the horse to Med
ford only a short time before. An ad
for this animal will appear within a
few weeks. In this Mr. Hill will tell
of the especially fine points of the ani
mal and will ask all breeders of good
stock, or those who wish to get into
the channel, to call at the stable of U.
D. Hill, just south and west of Medford,
and permit him to prove to them the
truthfulness of his assertions. The
horse is truly a fine one and without
work, has done better than three iniu
utes on the track.

That key proposition at Thompson

Out of 2000 keys sold only about 3o0
remain untried in the lock that closets

possible the very next one that comes
in may be the right one. it is as well
probable that someone who has already
tried their keys did not do it thorough
ly enough and they might have had
the lucky one. If, after due time, the
right key is not found they propose to
try all those turned in and if the right
one has been overlooked they will

with Hy. Allison, of Jacksonville, and

able to supply all the demands of the
valley. The Jacksonville kiln ia to

The pears that ripens in the winter
have nothing in common with the
flowers that bloom in the spring, ex
cept that peare that ripen in February
are more out of the ordinary than
roses that bloom in May. Mr. Gran
ville Kaylor presented us with a pear
this week, which was just at the right
stage of ripeness to be palatable. He
relates that this variety of fruit which
is without a name other than pear
can be kept in a perfectly sound con
dition until May, provided it is kept in
a dark room.

acres of Medford property and $1500 in

his Medford property for sale.

New Law Finn.
A new law firm springs into exis
tence this week. The sign of W. H.
Parker, attorney at law, takes a walk
in the garden, as it were, and in its
place springs up, fresh and blooming
like a June rose, a sign which tells tho
locations, and reads in letters "Crowell
& Parker Attorneys at Law." and so
plain that none may los- their way
who seek legal counsi-l. The consolo
dation of tho two legal g"ntlemen,
Captain W. S. Crowell and Mr. VV. H.
Parker, under a firm name was brought
about on Monday of this week and tney
at oiicl! dropped into business as natur
ally and with as much becoming digni
ty anil grace as though driven in team
harness for years. A professional
card published elsewhere will tell you
of l-ication of these gentlemen. Capt.
CroVell, while new to us in a profes
sional way, is far from being a stranger
to a great many of us, he having been
a resident of this locality for a number
of years, and engaged in farming pur
suits. Prior tocoming to Oregon, Mr.
Crowell practiced law in Ohio and
was district attorney in one of the
judicial districts in that Stale for two
terms, and was as well a member of
the Ohio state senate. For five years
ho was ex-olliicio1 judge of the U.S.
consular courts at Amoy, China. Sum
ming up all facts relative to Mr.
Crowell's career as a practitioner at
the bar, we have but to stale that he
has followed this profession all bis life.
The gentleman informs us that he will
not take civil cases in justice court, or
any criminal casos in said courts of
lesser grade than felony.
Mr. Parker, the junior member of
of the firm, needs no lengthy talk from
us by way of introduction. He has
practiced law in this county for several
years and has bandied all cases en
trusted to him in a manner most
commendable. The gentleman, when
county clerk of the county, familiar-ix-d
himself with all the ins and outs
of the proceedings of the county courts
hence in his practice of law since
that time, he is belter qualified to
handle cases that come up therein. He
will make a specialty of handling busi
ness pertaining thereto. Tub Mail
has nothing but the heartiest wish for
the success of the new firm.

From Balte City Miner.
"The 'Black Hussar.' in conjunction
with the living pictures, was presented
to a large audience at Maguire's. last
evening, by the Calhoun Comic Opera,
company. That the author of the
piece was something of a humorist is
evidenced by the fact that in addition
to the splenuid music the 'Black Hus

highly interesting and laughable from
beginning to finish. I: is certainly all
that the company clairs for It a

Drs. G. V. McDonald, of this
city, and A. Moore, of Ashland,
performed a very difficult operation
in veterinary surgery, the lirst part
of this week, upon a horse owned
by A. P. Creed. The operation
was that of removing a ruolenetic
tumor, of a cancerous nature,
from the animal's eye. The tumor
had formed in the lower corner of
the eye, but had grown until it
entirely covered the sight of the
eye, and was about the size of a
walnut. The operation was a coai-
