Right at the present timo there is
nothing more important to the well
being of the city of Medford than its
water supply. The Commercial Club
of this city has deolded to take this
matter up and ascertain if it be pos

supply of good, pure mountain water
for the city's use. When the Com

any improvement or enterprise it al
ways accomplishes its end. Knowing
this to be true and desiring an ex
