PIONEER
CALLED
W OM AN OF VALLEY
TO LAST REW ARD
Maria Catherine Morris, a pioneer
of Jackson county since the early
days, passed away at her home in
Central Point Sunday afternoon at
the age of 78 years, 9 months and
17 days. She was a native of Illinois
and came west at the age o f one
year anad resided with her parents
in California until her marriage to
A. W. Morris, who was called to his
reward many years ago. Her father
was a pioneer minister o f Jackson
county and established the Christian
church at Medford. He will be re­
membered by the early settlers as
the Rev. Martin Peterson and preach­
ed at various places over the valley.
Thus in the passing o f Mrs. Morris,
Oregon loses another o f the few re­
maining pioneers o f ’49.
She leaves three children, A. R.
Morris and Mae M. Jacobs o f Cen­
tral Point and W. M. Morris of Horn-
brook, California. Also two grand­
children, Edith L. Jacobs and Ger­
ald M. Morris.
Funeral services were at her late
residence in Central Point at 10:30
o’clock Tuesday morning. Rev. Shaw
o f 'the Christian chyrch, o f which
she was a member, officiated. Serv­
ices were in charge o f the Conger
Funeral
Parlors.
Interment was
made at the Central Point cemetery.

R R G U E R I V E R V A L L E Y MEN
The men from well nigh all over
the valley o f the Rogue will meet
at Cowley Hall next Sunday morn­
ing at 10 a. m.
The plan o f campaign for tne
class this year will take the form
o f a multi-community co-operation,
and there will be, (if the Great
Bible Class formally adopts the pro­
gram already outlined) special days
in which the various communities of
the valley will be especially recog­
nized, throughout the year.
The new slogan fo r the Men’s
class is “ Better than a community,
bigger than a town,’’ A pioneer—
the class is working at a big job,
in a big way.
The only thing o f its kind in the
world, the world is watching its
work; with enquiries from all over
the United States, as to its methods;
and the “ why” and “ how” o f its
growth.
Men, don’t forget that there are
two Sunday schools in Central Point,
either o f which will be happy to
welcome your wives, your sweet­
hearts or your children to their
classes.
Bring your women folk along, let
them attend the Bible school o f their
choice, while you get in with the
Rogue River Valley Men.

Wednesday afternoon a large
crowd gathered at the special meet­
ing called by the officers o f the
company to consider selling the brick

Eastern buyers have offered
to

creasing the output and varieties of
brick.
The stockh >lders voted to accept
the propositi' n o f the buyers. The
deal will pro' ably be closed in a few
days.

T O L O ITEM S
A few days ago one o f the horses
on the Kirkland farm became en­

the poor animal has quite a sore
nose. These animals are getting
quite numerous in this part o f the
valley.

soon for Forest Creek where they
will spend the winter. Wre regret
very much o f loosing these good
people and we hope they will soon
return.

Mrs. H. F. Whetstone over Sunday
were Mrs. Willis Roland, Mr. and
Mrs. H. G. Waltermire and Mr. J.
B. Cook, the latter a brother o f Mrs.

Miss Beula Hood, teacher o f the
Agate school, called at the Whetstone
home Saturday.
