The Gold Hill city council has de
cided upon plana and specification for
a sewerage system for that town. The
contract for the construction of the por
tion of the Bewer to be put in now has
becu let to Stickel Bros., and the work
ie to bo completed by November let.
The sewer is to run from the N. E. cor
ner of D street down 4th etrtet to the

Contractor E. W. Starr has the
Will Stewart farm residence, east of
Medford, ready for the plasterers. Mr.
Starr has worked on the house forty
four days and has ridden his bicycle
from Medford to his work eaoh morning
and returned again in the evening. Con
sidering the fact that Mr. Starr is sixty
Eve years old the feat is Indeed a Btun
ner. There are few men much younger
in years who would think or tackling a
job of this kind. The road over which
he has traveled is quite hilly and the
early morning rides which he has taken
have been anything but an easy task.
I The Mail knowB full well that Mr.
starr has put in gooct work lor every
hour's time he has charged on tills job
he couldn't be auything but honeet if
he was to try. The entire distance
traveled by Mr. Starr on his wheel dur
ing this time was 204 miles.

The Medford City Council is hav
ing a strenuous time these days pro
viding fuel to operate the electric
light and pumping plant. There is
only wood enough on hand to run for
a few weeks at best and the price at
which it is held by those supplying it
is $4 50 a cord a price which is con
jsidered by far too high to be paid with
any degree of aasuranoe that the busi
ness of the two plants will warrant the
outlay. Chairman Wilson endeavored
to have a special council meeting Mon
day night, but so many of the council-
men were out of town that a quorum
could not be gotten together. The
object in calling this meeting was to

with a load each of supplies for the
surveyors. While out there they meet
Mr. Arrant, the superinteudant of the
park reserve. This gentleman has but
resently recovered from a 6evere injury
and aioknesa. He has completed a
bridge across Anna creek 104 feet in
length which shortens the distance be
tween Crater Lake and Klamath Falls
fully one and a half miles. He reports
that he has looked out a route that will
shoiten the distance between Medford
and valley points to the lake fully
three miles and will do away with
much of the heavy grade over which
the travel is now going.

J. C. Mitchell, the cattlo buyer, is
said to have bought 1200 head of beef
cattle in the valley. Among the
largest bands purchased are those of
the Barrons, tho Neils and the Baroe
burgs. Several smaller bands have also
been bought. Delivering is to com
mence about the 10th of September.
Tho price paid for best grade is 3
oentB. ThlBwas the price paid last
year but it Included fat cowb and otill
steers. This year, however it is claim
ed that only three conts will be paid
for thiB grade of beef. There may be
other buyers in the field later who
will raise this price to what It was last
year. The amount of money which
Mr. Mitchell will pay for the cattle lie
has bought will probably be between
$:;00,00d and $400,000. The work of
rounding up will commence thie week.

the carpenter work. Mr. Hull Is also
getting lumber on the ground for a fine
residence. The main part will be
10x30 with an ell 14x24, and two
stories high. While Mr. Hull Is
a new man to this Immediate locality
he is not new to Jackson county, he
having lived in the Meadows section for
a great many years. HiB faith in South
ern Oregon is not waning in the least as
is proven by his great expenditure of
money at this time. Mr. Hull is a good
man in any locality and the Griffin creek
people may congratulate themselves
because they have him for a neighbor.
