Members of the Ashland Kiwanis club last Friday
who were fortunate enough to hear C. C. Hoover of
Medford describe the new

that meeting with a different
conception o f w hat Southern
Oregon soil will do. They heard Mr. Hoover tell how
off of a sixty acre tract of land he had taken $19000,
worth of dairy products, beef cattle and seed. It
sounded like Alladin’s Lamp. They heard him say
that his fortune was made, that he no longer needed
to worry about the future and they heard him recom­
mend this ^rass to others, as being the means to pros­
perity and its accompanying happiness.
Yet there were those who were skeptical, who
were heard to remark that his enthusiasm was based
upon the desire to sell seed, and right there is where
we differed with those who were skeptical.
W e are frank to admit, that we do not know one
thing about the merits of the «-ass, and we are just as
frank to say, that before we become skeptical about
it, we are going to take advantage of the invitation
extended at this meeting and investigate it for our­
If it is but one half as good as Mr. Hoover say9 it
is, the seed will sell itself. The Register would like to
see a good delegation of Ashland business men, and
farmers, visit this ranch, and get first hand know­
ledge o f just what this product will do. W e owe it to
ourselves and to our community to make this invest­
igation, for if the benefits are as great as has been
painted, then truly it will mean prosperity for ever*

Blessed is the husband who is
(good natured and likes what you
cook, the way you dress, the thing*
you want to do, the friends you
choose and who merrily joins In
your pleasures.
It ia fine to have a husband who
talks his plans over with you and
confides in you and takes
along with him when he goes any­
where, or comes home and tells
you what they did and said out in
the world where he was.
And, last but not least, it is a
jo y to have a husband who re­
members that inside you are an
"eternal fem inine” who likes to be
told thmt your hair looks pretty
that wny, or your dress is becom­
ing or “ your pie was the
there.” fla t e r y is music which sets
our hearts a-tingle, because we
know it plays the accompaniement
to a song o f love.
V erily, Sister, if you have a
husband who ia like all this, or any
good part o f it, appreciate him—
suid tell him so. His price is far
above rubies.
