Abraham Lincoln's sentimental perplexities
are to be shown In an article of singular interest
which John Gilmer Speed has written from n
pubiisued letters of Lincoln to Joshua Speed
fur the next issue of The Ladles Home Journal.
The article will show that the great president
was not steady in his affairs of the heart, that
he floundered in bis lore, and finally induced
his friend Speed to marry and tell him (Lincoln)
whether marriage was a failure or not.

Fruit and Fruit Culture
The name, "Fairview," is given this
property because, that being located as
it is. on a slight eminence, a view of all
parts of Medford and a good portion of
the valley can be had from any part of
the land. Nearly all of this land has
been cleared and has been under culti
vation for a number of years. The soil
is of an exceptionally fine quality and its
adaptability to fruit-growing has been
proven. This land will be sold upon the
Installment Plan.
Payments may be made at 1.2f per
week. per month or $lf every quar
ter, or a liberal discount will be made
for all cash purchases.
The success attending fruit culture is
no longer an experiment. B- direct anal
ysis the soil is found to contain all tho
elements required to produce fruits from
the semi-tropical to the hardiest varie
ties. Over these favorable conditions
hangs a climate co-ordinated and adjust
ed to the nature of the soil.
