Shale Oil Success
.So much basketball this season in Ashland has
rather overshadowed the high school’s activities
along this line. A team that would otherwise, have
attracted much attention has been more or less ne­
glected from the public’s standpoint. Now however
with one of the best teams in the state coming here
for a two game aeries, the fans should not forget
that we too, have a winning team. So far this year
we have lost but three games, and one of the early
in the season, on a floor that had been used for
dancing, and 'upon which it was nearly ini(>ossible
to stand.
With a record of this kind back -of them, the
boys as well as the school officials who have been
working quietly but efficiently are deserving or
some attention from the public, when they appear
here at home. An enthusiastic rabid basketball
crowd would do much to help the boys Friday and
Saturday. Why not give it to them?
A Broad-Gauge Industry
There has been a shortage of capital for the
development of weatom metal mines; but the situa­
tion is improving as the public better understands
Western st#tos particularly are dependent tq»on
their metal mining industries.
These industries
should have full encouragement by both state and
''national government«. It is incumbentx upon the
government not to impose exhorbitant tax bunlen«
upon the mines, or unduly restrictive regulations in
the form of “ blue sky” laws upon the promotion
and development of mining enterprise«. On tlie
other hand, mine developers and operator« should
not resort to extravagant claims for the purjxjse of
inducing investors to place their capital, in mining
ventures. '

Attorney W. J. Moore has just consummated
the purchase of the residence property known as
the “ Alice L Black property” which is favorably
located on the Boulevard in the very heart of the
school sone, and is considered one of the most desir­
able and attractive {pmeS'Of that favored district
Mr. Moore is president of the State Bank of
Ashland, is a careful, conservative dealer, and a
close observer of general business conditions. His
recent purchase would indicate that he has con­
fidence in a bright future for Ashland, where he has
resided for the past twenty years, during which
time he has been actively identified with various
interests of the community. He intends making
extensive improvements of his new purchase, and
seems to take an optimistic view of Ashland’s fu­
ture, noth withstanding the dire predictions of many
pessimists to the contrary.
It was Mr. Moore, who on behalf of the C. W.
Boot estate, conceived the idea and initiated the
plan of purchasing certain tracts of land at the
entrance of our beautiful park, to be 'used for
general park purposes by the city. When he pre­
sented his plans to his associates, the other two
members of the board of trustees, they at once con­
ceded the wisddm of Such purohases and heartily
entered into the details of exercising the options
to purchase which Mr. .Moore had procured. These
lands are admitted on all hands to be of incalcul­
able value to the city of Ashland, and in their pur­
chase the trustees of this fund have not only shown
a progressive spirit, but have also shown their faith
and confidence in the future prosperity of the city.
Ashland needs' more men of the progressive,
far-seeing type of the membership of this board 'of
trustees, with concerted action and less of the idle
street talk of the unthinking.

Buys Ashland Property
The hopes and aipbitiens of many Ashland
people have been raised recently with the announce­
ment that the Shale Oil project bids fair to become a
success. The recent test run, was sufficient to con­
vince the engineer in charge of the activities that
the principal involved of extracting the crude oil
from the shale, was correct. That the oil was of a
high grade, the engineer also stated, and he further
declared that it should mean a good paying in­
dustry for Ashland.
This should be worth something for those who
are prone to minimize the advantages that Ash­
land in particular and Southern Oregon in general
lias to offer. This means the probable development
of one of our natural resources. It will undoubtedly
mean that the untold wealth that has been lying
dormant at our door step, will he converted into
assets from which every one should receive some
benefit. -

I got up fifteen minutes to six
that morning
If I
rightly, made things fly for two
hours, Set the thermograph, car­
ried up wood aad water, shovel­
ed some snow, and at eight
o'clock I was playing my role
of Banta.
I traveled that 42
miles fo r no other reason to
take out some Christmas cards.
Of all the simple minded, I
take the cake. I made the trip
all the way on my own power.
It took me just nine hours, no,
the skilag wasn’t of the best.
The crust under the new snow
was rotten and would give down
with each stroke of the aklls, then
th« new anew was grainie, like

made it hard going.
To top it

garage, and as the song goes,

I really enjoyed the trip down,
even to the last fire miles. When
I Was In the timber, there was
the snow laden trees to enjoy,
they were beautiful, and as I left
them behind and came Into Wood
River Valley just as the purple
and lavendar shadows of the
days end was settling over a
landscape mottled with white and
deep green; I forgot all about
the car, or was glad I had to
walk. There was the ragged peaks'
of the Cascades outlined In pink
and drhlts, w ith a background of
sky aglow, w ith crimson colors;
the faint outline of farmhouses
nestling In deep blue shadows of
the foothills, tka curling smoke
o f the chimneys, the windows
aglow with {rlsndly light.
haps It was these things that
caused my stride to slow and my
traveling time seem long to you.
I reached the hotel at fire
o'clock a little tired.
