Stock Company Being Formed to
Manufacture Butter Here
Central Point is to have a creamery.
At least, the present indications point
strongly in that direction.
Mr. P. D. Creager, western repre­
sentative o f the Hastings Industrial
company o f Chicago, has been here less
than a week and has already met with
hearty encouragement in his work o f
organizing a company and installing a
first-class, modern butter-making plant.
The plan is to organize a stock com­
pany o f farmers and business men, who
will own and operate the plant, there­
by insuring to the producer the full
amount o f profit the milk contains.
This section o f southern Oregon is
ideal for the production o f butter at a
profit, it being one o f the best alfalfa

A matter that has puzzled some o f
the transient visitors in southern Ore­
gon during the quaking period down in
California has been our entire exemp­
tion from the-quaking. Only those who
are familiar with the geological forma­
tion o f the coast ranges actually know
the reason for immunity from earth­
quakes, as well as from cyclones, but
it has been a matter o f common knowl­
edge for generations past that the Sis­
kiyou range o f mountains, which marks
the boundary between Oregon and Cal­
ifornia, was the first land that appeared
above the waters o f the Pacifio. ocean
in prehistoric times, and it is even con­
tended by some geologists that Wagner
and Ashland buttes were never sub­
merged at any period. Thin affords
conclusive proof o f the thickness o f the
earth’ s crust In this region, and satis­
factorily acoounts for the fact that not
one in a thousand felt even the slightest
tremor here during the recent disturb­
ances to the south.
This is a happy condition o f affairs in
southern Oregon, for here we have the
same climate which has been the chief
resource o f California in’ times past,
and we are absolutely exempt from
any danger from seismic influences and
in addition have the greater advantage
o f being the one place on the coast
where conditions are right for the pro­
duction o f the highest types o f de­
ciduous fruits.
The fact that this is true is going to
induce many who are residents o f Cal­
ifornia, and who feel unsafe there, to
remove to the Rogue river valley, as
after enjoying this coast climate they
ean never be reconciled to residence
again in the inhospitable climes to the
east o f the Rocky mountains. Our
neighbors’ misfortune may in the long
run work to our permanent advantage,
although at present is must be conceded
that some immigration is being divt.'ted
altogether from this coast.

A Good Entertdinment
Below Cost
The literary and musical entertain­
ment given in the opera house last Sat­
urday evening by the students and
faculty o f the Ashland normal school
was well attended and highly enjoyed
by an appreciative audience. The pro­
gram included many excellent musical
selections and the literary features
were o f high order. In his rendition
o f Shakespearian selections Prof. B. F.
Mulkey gave every admirer o f that
classic writer a real treat, his power o f
expression and clear interpretation
showing him to be a master o f elocu­
tion. Miss Leta Nickerson, a talented
young soprano, charmed the audience
with a nnmber o f solos, her voice show­
ing much cultivation and excellent
training. The other performers were
also o f high order. To Prof. A. J.

this entertainment for the town, the net

Dr. C. R. Ray, president ot the ••
W. H. Peninger, a well known resi­
dent o f near Tolo, met with a very se­
rious accident a few days ago in which
he narrowly escaped death. Mr. Pen­
inger, accompanied by another gentle­
man, was in the Galice creek mount­
ains in Josephine county, where they
had gone in search o f sheep range.
They had climbed a steep mountain
ar.d after making their way over the
summit started down a steep trail.
The mountain side, around which ran
the trail, was very precipitous, and as
a matter o f precaution Mr. Peninger
had dismounted ar.d was leading his
horse when he lost his footing on the
uncertain ground and fell and rolled to
the bottom o f the gulch, a distance o f
more than 100 feet. Fortunately, the
horse did not follow him or Mr. Peninger
might have been crushed to death in the
descent. Mr. Peninger was in town
Tuesday and showed evidence o f hiS
terrible tumble. He says they found
plenty o f grass in that countty, but the
mountains are too steep to successfully

can be realized by the farmer by man­
ufacturing his product here, thereby
saving to himself the cost o f freight
charges both ways.
As a business proposition for the
town and surroundiug country at this
time a creamery can hardly be sur­
passed. It will not only furnish a lu­
crative means for the farmer to dis­
pose o f his hay and pasture but it
will also prove o f great advantage to
the business interests o f the town. It
will mean the disbursement o f a large
amount o f money direct to the farmers
every month, and this will inevitably
flow into local trade channels, thereby
proving a benefit to every line o f busi­
ness in Central Point.
The company represented by Mr.
Creager has been engaged in the busi­
ness o f building creameries ail over the
country for years and reports from
many quarters where they have in­
stalled plants are unanimous in recom­
mending their business methods and
the general satisfaction o f their work.
Everyone who is interested in advanc­
ing the interests o f Central Point and
this section o f the valley should take an
active interest in helping to land the
creamery. It will help the farmer di­
rectly; it will help the business man;
it will help everybody in the commu­
