possible prices.

The fair ground proposition is in
about the same condition it was last
week, except that at a meeting held
Tuesday it was decided, by a vote of
those present, to secure the Thomas
tract of land, provided enough land
could be purchased at a reasonable
figure from the Fish tract to enable
the association to build a mile track,
the amount required being about ten or
twelve acres. The committae has
written Mr. Fish, but as yet has re
ceived no definite answer. It was also
decided at this meeting that the
soliciting committee be instructed to
solicit sale or stock upon a basis of 10
000 capital stock half paid up. The
Thomas tract was offered for rent for
$100 per year for ten years, which pro
position met with favor. At the meet
ing held last Saturday night C. Min
gus presented a proposition to rent suffi
cient land for fifteen years at $200 per
year. This land is located just north
of the school house on the Med ford and
Jacksonville wagon road. No action
taken on this proposition. Hon. Henry
Klippel presented figures on the prob
able cost of buildings, and fencing,
which aggregated 81835. The gentle
man was positive that $2000 would cover
all of the buildings and fence expenses.
A vote of thanks was tendered Messrs.
Angle & Plymale for the courtesy ex
tended in giving the free use of their
opera house for these meetings. The
Tuesday evening's meeting adjourned
to meet at the call of the committee on
grounds.
The Multnomah Club cigars are
unquestionably the best lor a nickel
on the market. They are sold by I. A.
Mounce and sold so swiftly that an
order went in for 5000 of them last reek
and they are now here. They are a
standard article and just as staple as
sugar and flour. When there is a mar
ket for any cigar the one selected is
the Multnomah Club. It is king wheat.

A. T. Markley, proprietor of the
Aloha fruit evaporator was somewhat
undecided last season as to whether or
not be would make a winning by estab
lishing an evaporator plant in Medford
The run last year was light, owing to
his lack of room and the scarcity of
fruit, but Mr. Markley was satisfied
ven with the business he did then.
This year he enlarged his plant and
since the first coming of fruit bis es
tablishment has been running to its
fall capacity and he is now more than
satisfied in fact, he threw up his
hands onlv a few davs ago and remarked
that he had enough for one season. He
has nut through bis evaporator since
the season opened just 160,000 pounds
of green fruit, lie will snip a carioaa
of dried fruit iust as soon as the pack
insr is complete. All enterprises that
start up in Medford, il properly hand
led, meet a fate like unto- that ol Mr.
Markley which is a pleasant one. A
cannery would do a big business right
here and be a profit to its owner and
the county generally.
Because that I have opened an
harness shop in Gold Hill it does not
necessarily follow that I have quit
Medford. I am stUl here and prepared
to supply all customers with the best
article in horseware in the valley. Re
paring is right in my line. J. W.
Lawton.
J. W. Lawton, the Medford har
ness man, has decided to open up a
branch shop in Gold Hill. His father,
r. T. Lawton, wUl have charge of the
Gold Hill branch and the gentleman is
this week engaged in getting matters
and things in 6hape for an opening
on Tuesday of next week. He has
leased one of the Fitzgerald store build
ings. He will move his family and
household effects and expects to make
that town his permanent abiding place.
He will keep on band a full line of
ready made harness and will do repair-

however, has not quit the business, but
continues as before with hisown team,
and single handed. The advent of Mr.
Hill into the draymen s arena gives us
just au even six in that line of work, j
Three years ago one team was doing
the work that require five to do today.
Oh! no, Medford isn't growing nor
nothing just growing, that's all.
Some people want a cigar Mat is
made of better material than that put
in those that are sold for a nickel,
some want a still better one than a ten
center. The Monogram sells two for
twenty-five, but it is worth the price,
because that the material is a
cream article. - All who try them once
are sure to come again. 1. A. Mounce,
opposite the postoffiiee.
A. Harding, a gentleman who lives
at Ashland, hut who in former years
served his time as boss packer in the
large packing nouses at Omaha, is now
engaged in packing meat-for Ed. Wil
kinson. He promises tnat bd win nave
the pleasure of selling some as fine
sugar cured hams as ever came out of
the Omaha shops. Mr. Harding ana
the gentlemanly Ed. Wells who can
do a fine job of singing as well as
slaughtering pork are working shoul
der to shoulder in this packing house
and the two are putting up something
like seventy-five hogs per week which
work wnl continue as long as the nog
supply nolds out.
LaBelle Creole is a cigar and it is
being extensively advertised. It is a
gentleman's cigar and sells iwo-for-twenty-five
some of them, not quite
so good sell for ten cents straight. You
make no common error in trying a La
Belle. I. A. Mounce keeps them and
sells them lots of them.
The plow trial came off as an
nounced at Mr. Asa Fordyce's place
last Saturday, under the direction of
Mr. D. C Brownell, who is represent
ing the Baker & Hamilton manufactur
ing company, perhaps the largest im
plemei t manufacturers on the coast.
The testa proved satisfactory for dry
plowing and it is said that another
trial is to be given a little later when
the ground will be in condition for
good work. The company is preparing
to establish an agency here and like
wise to set forth the excellencies of
their wares through the columns of
The Mail-
Wet feet are not comfortable.

The Edward Smith's auction sale
was well attended last Wednesday and
the goods and real estate sold brought
good prices. The store building and
lot on South Front street was sold to
J. A. Lyon for $461; the Asnlana real
estate was bought by S. C. Rubble, of
Josephine county, for 1200; the organ
brought !65, and all household effects
brought correspondingly good prices.
Mr. Smith expects to leave soon with
his family for California where they
will travel from place to place with
team and wagon and do gospel work.

It is a pleasure to TnE Mail, to
note that Medford people are royally
entertained while in Portland, and
none the least of these was Miss Carrie
Lumsden. The lady visited Portland
but a week or two ago and while there
her raanv friends banqueted her in a
royal manner at Highland hall, about
seventy friends being present and all
these to do her honor. A six o'clock
dinner was also given in honor of her
jvisit bv Mrs. Whipple. As a matter
of fact Miss L,umsuen "naa a very

Mr. C. U always all smiles and pretty
ways a fellow can hardly tell whether
the prolonged bit of merriment is be
cause of recent events or that he just
sort o' can't help it.

J. A. Kggersand A. L. Ferguson
returned Mouday from a five days'
hunting trip up on Elk creek. They
bunted not quite two days, saw twenty
two deer, killed four and brought a
large delicious piece of deer tenderloin
steak to THE Mail shop. They report
that the woods are full of deer but
they, being unaquainted with the lay
of the country and the run of the deer,
did not get nearly so many as they
might bad circumstances been differ

Ed. Wilkinson has moved into his
new shop and we are safe in saying
that he now has one of the neatest
meat markets in the state. The walls
have been frescoed, and ceiling hand
somely decorated, and by the addition
of new blocks and counter the shop
presents a very neat appearance. The
tile floor in the front part of the shop
is a very pretty design and adds uia
terily to the appearance of the shop.
The plasterers and carpenters are now
working on the upper story and it will
6oon be ready for occupancy. The
painting on the building was done by

job.
