The Doings of the Busiest City In
the Rogue River Valley AH the
News Once a Week.
The well in Odd Fellows cemetery
is down 240 feet and still there is not
enough water to supply the demands of
. ...;lmill Kilt: T.hA Tivlora haS P-i VtMl
orders to go deeper and keep going
until a sufficient supply of water is
found. The well has cost thus far
$371.25. Two hundred dollars was
raised by subscription last summer and
of this amount the Rebekah and Odd
Fellows lodges subscribed $100, the oth
er hundred given by townspeople and
those near town who were interested
in the work. It was suggested at the
last lodge meeting that perhaps there
were those in the valley who would
like to take advantage of this opportu
nity to ascertain just how far it would
be necessary to bore to secure an arto-
sian well. It was decided that if those
who wanted to experiment on the prop
osition would chip in money to push
the work they could have the hole to
test the- possible flow of water. B.
S. Webb and H. G. Nicholson were
appointed a committee to see what
could be done in the matter. If arte
sian wells can be had in this valley
there are many who would like to
know it, and there seems no better and
i-liMtvr mentis of ascertaining than to
take hold of this proposition.
Don't have your teeth extracted, j
Dr. O. F. Demorest gives strict atten- i
tion to the preservation of the natural j
teeth; aching teeth saved, no matter j
how bad the case may be; porcelain,

guarantee teeth not to ache after com
pleted. No work turned out unless
first-class, prices reasonable. Dental

however, he-reads futures, and sees in
the vista of lS9o a bountiful crop ol
fruit, and accordingly he maketh his
evaporator larger to meet the prom

more room to each side and eight feet
at one end, making the building 32x53
feet in size, and is thus given about
as much again working room. During
ter weuther which has really been no
winter at all, just a little wet season
Mr. Markley has made good use of his
time by grading about his pretty little
residence, and has also built a fence
around the same. Jow that the proper
time for planting has showed up he is
engaged in putting out fruit trees,
shrubbery and berry vines. His place
will be one of much beauty some of

C. W. Stratton, of the Medford
Electric company, received the sad
news, Sunday afternoon, of the sudden
death of his father, which occurred in
Portland Sunday about two o'clock.
The gentleman took the evening train
for Portland and is still in that city.
Deceased Mr. Stratton was president of
the East Portland National bank and
a wealthy and influential business man
of that city, and all Portland papers
pay him high tribute, both as regards
his social and business career. He was
but fifty-five years of age. He leaves
of the immediate relatives a wife and
four children, the oldest of whom is
C. W. Stratton, of this city. His
dea'.h was very sudden and was
from apoplexy. The young Mr. Strat
ton's friends in Medford. and he has
made a great many during his brief
stay, extend to him their deepest sym
pathy in his recent sad affliction.

It is a sad bit of news that comes
to us this week from Sams Valley, it
being the death of the infant daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Case. Mrs. Case,
with the baby, was visiting relatives
j in that vicinity and when she awakened
from her night's sleep, Thursday morn-
ing of last week, she found the little
one lying co9ily in her arms, but in
i stead of there being life, as when it
9 was placed there, there was death.
The child had ' evidently died
without a struggle, but from what
cause no one knows, but as it had been
having a cold it probably choked from
phlegm rising in its throat. The child
was two months and eight days old.
iFuneral services were conducted by
Rev. Brower, on Saturday at ten
o'clock. Mr. and Mrs. Case have the
sympathy of many friends in their af
fection. A full stock of the only and origi
nal Black-Land plows, just received at

The Jacksonville Times is feeling
ore at heart, and it has reason to feel
hat way, but that is no reason why it
should shove off some of its spleen up
on Medford. In its last issue it locates
"several cases of diphtheria near Med
ford" which cases are and always
have been located at Phoenix, a point
not more than one-half mile nearer
Medford than Jacksonville. There
has not been even one case of diphthe
ria nearer Medford than above stated,
fortunately The Mail has a circulation
which enables us to scatter the correc
tion in as many homes as the Times
did the malicious falsehood in advance
of us. If the Times is taken to task
for this falsehood, it will undoubtedly
place the responsibility upon the shoul
ders of Mr. Fay, where we hardly
Relieve it belongs.
A silver set of 31 pieces to be given

TheY. M. C. A. meeting held at
the M. E. church south last Sunday
afternoon was well attended, and al
though no special program had been
prepared the song service and a short
talk by Rev. Thompson and W. J.
Bonnet were very interesting and an
hour or more time was thus agreeably
Plans for the new building
were presented and pinned to the wall,
where all might view the design of the
beautiful structure. A collection,
amounting to $15, was taken for the
purchase of new song books for the
association. The building committee
reported considerable progress in their
work of soliciting subscriptions, and
seemed sanguine as to the probability
of raising the required amount.

While all hands, including the
superintendent of the culinary depart
ment, are making improvements, there
is no good reason why Dr. Demorest
should not bo counted among those
that way iucliuod. He has been slick
ing up immensely about his dental
parlors, which make them even more
pleasant than before. He has re
papered, re-arranged and re-beautified
the parlors, and a noticeable quantity
of prosperitv is scattered thereabouts.
The gentleman states that business is
first-class and steady. He is now
working upon a set of teeth for a San
Francisco lady. About May or June
his brother, "Henry, is expected to
reach Medford sure, this time.

nature at Ager and Yreka and in the

innocence. He is engaged at present
