THE MAGI IS HERE!
Sunday, April 25, was Jim Wat-
kin’s 64th birthday. Jim came down
town early with his horse shoes dang
ling from his arm and a peculiar
look in his eye. On this day he had
determined to clean-up southern Ore
gon or quit the game.
In company with a co-partner
from tedford he went to Ashland
where the pitchers of that city, Med
ford and Grants Pass were going
to ‘‘pitch it out.’’
Jim and his pal “ cleaned” all the
pitchers in this art, of all the above
mentioned cities. But he was still
going good when he came home in
the evening and won all the games
played with home pitchers.
Moreover, he ended the day by
hunting up the frail editor o f this
paper and offered to go in the ring
for several rounds. We looked Jim
over and decided to wait until he

You have all read stories o f the
ancient Magi o f Persia, once a caste
or cult o f Priests who ranked next
to the ruler o f the land in import
ance; but how many o f you have
ever thought to meet one o f these!
Well, you will now have that op
portunity, as one o f this cult has
established his residence right here
This is the way it happened:—
two local men who have been spend
ing every spare minute o f time, for
the past year and more, in experi
mentation have at last succeeded in
the>r endeavor to produce something
that is “ just a little better” than any
thing in that line— an Automobile
and Furniture Polish.
These gentlemen claim some very
important improvements over any
other product now on the market
and are ready and willing to dem
onstrate and prove their contention.
This office has just finished the
printing o f the first lot o f labels
which are lo appear on the contain
ers for this polish and we are hold
ing the “ set-up” for more to be
printed in a short time as there will
soon be great demand for this pro
duct, there having already been re
ceived orders from as far away as
Chicago, as well as several from this
This polish, A well as several
other kinds of polishes, has been
named “ Magi” because o f its magical
work on the various surfaces for
which it is intended, and a special
cut has been made for use on labels,
etc., the said cut being obtained
through this office.
These two gentlemen are well
known in this vicinity, being none
others than Messrs. Harold Fields
and Frank M. Jones; it has been
known by many that they have been
doing tome sort o f experimental
work, but not many have known the
nature c f that work.
Messrs. Fields and Jones will man
ufacture these polishes here in Cen
tral Point, and distribute to all parts
o f the country, either in wholesale,
job .or retail lots.
Everyone who has seen the work
o f their polishes has admitted that
they “ never saw anything just like
it” and a great deal o f encourage
ment has been offered by those who
realize its merits.
We are glad to welcome this new
industry to Central Point and hope
that there will soon be such great
demands for these products that a
force of workmen will have to be
added to carry on the work.
Mr. Jones is ready at all times
to demonstrate these products at his
Jewelry Store at Paxson’s; Mr. Fields
also will demonstrate. Their charge
for this polish will be reasonable
and the results o f its use will be
more than pleasing.
Beside this Auto and Furniture
Polish these gentlemen have also dis
covered in the course o f their work,
an aluminum polish, brass and gen
eral metal polish, and a special
piano polish and leather finish, the
last two named not yut being man

and manufacturing capacity, but it
