A Mail reporter heard an argu

too ridiculous to be worthy of mention
but as others may be Interested in
knowing tho extent which some iic-ssI-mists
will allow their Imngination to
run wo will glvo it to our rcaCura. We
wore bpesklng of the advantages which
would be derived from the construction
of tbe new Fish Lake ditch when ono
of tbe party made bold tho assertion
that an irrigating dltah would ruin the
lands of the valley to which Itcouveyed
wator, ho olaimlng that the water
would harden the soil so that grain
could not grow and thai it would event
ually waste away. Medford people who
have Irrigated tbelr gard.ns for tbe
past ten or twelve years and have ex
perienced none of tbe calamities pre
dicted above will hardly believe that
tbe farm lands of the y alloy will be
made barron waste by aupplying them
witn an occasional wetting, -

It Is a very disgusting habit that
of expectorating on the sidewalks. The
many bundrod feet of good, substantial
cement walks are a beautiful thing to
look upon but when they are bespat
tered with tobacco Juice they are un
sightly things. Thore ought to be an
ordinuiico passed prohibiting spitting
on sidewalks. It is a filthy habit and
is vary annoying to thoso of our towns
people who believe In cleanliness and
who hnve a doslro to keep our little
city looking as pretty and tasteful as
possible. Asldo from being unsightly
tho habit Is dangerous from a sanitary
point of view as many disease germs
find harbor In the dress skirts of pass

for them In the person of some member
of tbe household.
