Wm. Ulrich returned home last
Sunday from San Francisco where he
had gone, with two carloads of cattle.
In answer to the questions of a Mail
reporter, he said that the markets were
' fair in San Francisco at the present
time, and that he could easily handle
all the stock of Jackson county this
fall. He is paying for cattle from 1.25
to 1.60 per hundred and two cents per
pound for hogs. He expects to ship a
train load of cattle soon, which will be
followed by another in quick succession.
"How. do they treat you down there?"
asked the reporter. "Well, let 'em
catch a suckerand see. Just like any
one else. If you catch a sucker, bump
his head. No, unless a man has had
some experience in shipping he had
better stay at home. For instance, how
many people in this valley know that
when you land your cattle'in San Fran
cisco, that they are met at the cars by
the toll collector, and five cents per
head demanded before you move them?
And another thing-, if they find a man
who is not on to the ropes oh, they
can tell them they will charge him
ten cents per head for weighing them."
"Have they any right to do that?" "No,
they have not." "So you think unex
perienced men had better keep away
from the city?" squeezed the reporter
in siaeways. "Well, they can do as
they please but they had better have
a friend there so they can borrow the
price of a return ticket to, Oregon.
"I've been talking about pretty
things in general that is, about my
lovely line of crockery but I'm going
to tell vou about pretty things in par
ticular this week. I've lust received
some of the finest banquet lamps ever
seen in Southern Oregon so pretty
that even the most fastidious could but
admire. They are cheap as well
as pretty and just the thing you want
to grace your parlor table. Call and
see them.'" Wolters, the grocer.
The bicyclists of this city are cir
culating a petition for the considera
tion of the town board of trustees
praying for the repeal of the bicycle
ordinance which was passed last spring
and for the enactment of another one
ljuch would commensurate with the
wishes of the citizens in general and
at the same time allowing the use of
sidewalks for bicyclists under proper
and just restrictions. The prohibitory
terms of the proposed ordinance are of
such a character that would insure the
safety of the pedestrians and would be
of great service to the riders. Here
are "a few of the main prohibitory
clauses: Riding at a faster rate than
four miles per hour, to be prohibited.
Every rider of a bicycle on a sidewalk
to give warning of his approach by a
bell, whistle or voice. Every male
rider of a bicycle must dismount on
meeting or passing a lady on a side
walk less than five feet in width.
, Street crossings to be given invari
ably to pedestrians. Fines to be im
posed for any violation of these clauses.
The petition will be presented as soon
as possible and it is sincerely hoped
by those interested that some provis
' ions will be made for the convenience
of those who are compelled to go to
and from their place of business on bi
cycles. The effect of many perfect gems
are marred by poor settings so is the
effect of many a pretty hat marred by
poor trimmings but mine are not. I
have . some of the most beautifully
trimmed i hats in Southern Oregon
and the prices are in keeping with the
times. Mrs. Sears at the Racket.
That the members of the M. E.
church of this city know how to show
- their appreciation of that which is done
for their, good, and in compliance with
their expressed wishes, was unmistaka
bly proven on the evening of the th,
of this month, when about fifty of them I
betook themselves to the home of their
Dastor, Rev. Gittins, who had been re
turned to labor for. them for the ensu
ing year, and gave him a reception so
cordial and sincere that it will ever be
remembered by him as one of the hap
- piest days of his life. They didn't stop
with merely calling upon him and as
suring him of their approval of the con
ference returning him to their midst,
but they were laden with all kind of
good things for the family larder,which
they deposited on the table, with
many expressions of good wishes for
' himself and family, and then after a
couple of hours of social converse, in--.
terspersed with music and singing,they
each and all bade him and his most es-
- timable family a hearty good night
and returned to their respective homes,
well pleased with their evening's past-
time, and glad of an opportunity to ex-
press their appreciation in a substan
: tial manner.
Fresh and cured meats, sausages,
- etc, can now be had at the Westside
market, where the lowest market price
prevails. Give me a call. Westside
Market, two doors south of the West

Recorder W. T. York was, on
Tuesday of this week, appointed local
agent for the Northern Pacific railroad
company for Med ford. Mr. Raine was
. formerly the company's agent at this
place, but his contemplated removal to
other parts necessitated his resigning.
The company is working into a good i
business down this way and there is no 1
good reason why this road should not
do half, if not more, of all the tran3
ontinental business. It is unquestion
ably one of the very best of lines and
fair, honest treatment is always ac
corded its patrons. Mr. York, the new
local agent, knows prerty nearly every
body hereabouts and we will venture
the assertion that the road's busi
ness will increase from this date.
Mr. York has lots of friends here who
will want him to dp a good business
" and they will help him get it.
Mrs. C. W. Palm nas just received
a large and complete stock of fall mil
linery, comprising all the latest nov
e'ties in hats and trimmings, and re
spectfully invites the ladies of Rogue
river valley to call, examine goods and
get prices. "
Robt. Bond, the young man from
Trail creek who was arrested and !
bound over a few weeks ago to appear
before the grand jury for stealing and
selling a horse belonging - to Wm.
Crane, of this city, is also a defaulter,
so it is reported, to the amount . of
about ninty dollars, having mis-appropriated
the school funds of the Trail
school district of which he was clerk.
He has been making strenuous efforts to
raise the required amount and replace
it before the grand jury meets, but so
far his efforts have been unavailing
and unless fortune should come to his
rescue he will have to meet a much
more serious charge than the one for
which be is now held. Max Muller is
one of his bondsmen, and while he will
give him every opportunity to refund
the money, he will probably prosecute
him unless he does so.
Thev are so little you hardly know

or rent another store, for our present
quarters are filled from floor to ceiling
with everything in our line imaginable.
We can supply all of Southern Oregon
with whips, saddles, harness, lap robes
and in fact anything you can think of
in the harness and saddlery line and
the prices will positively defy competi
tion. We have two full stocks of goods
in one store now that is to say, we
have purchased a large stock from
Grants Pass, at a great sacrifice and
we're going to sell itthe same way.
You needn t take our word for it, just
call and see for yourself. Come while
the" stock is complete. Boidleman &
Nicholson. 1 .
A hacking cough is not onlv an-
uoying to others, but is dangerous to
the person who has it. One Minute

it. Geo. H. Haskins, druggist.
If any of our readers doubt for a
moment that the statements which we
have made during the past several
months to the effect that Medford mer
chants are selling lots of goods, let us
tell you that the shipmeuts into the city
will attest to the truthfulness of the
statements. Only last Monday three
carloads of goods were unloaded in this
city and the daily average is trom one
to three carloads. Aside from these,
last Monday's receipts consisted of two
carloads of lumber and one of shingles,
for Wallace Woods, and two carloads
of coal oil for Bellinger & Hill. The
coal oil shipments will be larger than
usual to this point from now on, owing
to the fact that no carload shipments
will be mde to Ashland hereafter all
orders to be filled from this point.

one story high and will cost about 00.
We have the word of Mr. Childers for
the statement that Mr. Green is going
to have one of the very prettiest little
homes in Medford when it is completed
and none deserves it more than he.
Mr. Childers has also been eiven the
contract for bnilding a 14 foot brick ad
dition to S. W. bpeas' residence in

. Through the C. W. Palm real
estate agency J. F. Ritter last week
sold his twenty acre fruit ranch, located
south and west of Medford. near the
Orchard Home tract, to R. G. King, of
Oakland. Oregon, for $1800. Mr.
King will bring his family to Medford,
where they wilt reside until a suitable
dwelling can be built upon his new
purchase. The above piece of land is
very desirable and Mr. King ss to be
congratulated upon being its possessor.
Mr. Ritter, his many friends will be
pleased to learn, is not contemplating
locating elsewhere, but may possibly
engage in business ia this city.
