One of llio moil successful affairs
ever hold in Medford was the com
mercial club's moving pietmv inn)
nudcvillc performance nt Hie Page
theater Inst night. The theater held
the largest crowd in it history
iniiny were turned nvvny and the pa
rages nt the nnr of tlie parquet mid
linleony were filled with people, who
enjoyed the lecture by State Onrue
Yv'iirden Finley, nnd found the excel
lent pictures nnd stunts well worth
the discomfort of standing, pneked
like sardines, throughout the -how,
Tho pictures were nil that the cluh
promised. Tlic fiit, showing the
fnmous eld herd nt Jackson Hole,
Wyo., were fine, especially the views
Bhowing n herd of (1000 elk drhen
down to the alley by snow, and
thnt of tho snow s.onn on Teton
Snlinon IWliIng rilm
The views of Willnmette Falls were
Ftiperb. The c.hihitinn of salmon
fishing with rod nnd line, showing
the catching of thirtyMuuul fish,
half as long as n man's height, with
fie-ouncc rod, was some real sport.
The films showing the raising of
China pheasants, with hens ns fos
ter mothers, were intcrc-ting in the
extreme nnd mndc more than one
local admirer of these beautiful birds
vow thnt this vnlloy .should have
such a pheasant farm.
Fish projiogntion was illustrated
fully, from seining for the parent
fi-h, taking tho eggs, fertilizing,
hatching, to the distribution of the
Chasing tlio Itahibour
Itut the last reel was tho be-t
"Chnsing the Rainbow on the Rogue"
n film which caused Secretary of
Commcrco Rcdfield to declnre nt
Portland recently thnt ho would
never rest content till he had isited
Jackson county nnd caught rainbow
trout in our Rogue rier. It was
worth n lot to see Judge Kelly, Oco.
l'litnnni, A. E. Kennies and Sam
Snndry casting, reeling nnd landing
t'iglit-pouiiders. The wnding and
swimming stunts of Kelly brought
rounds of npplnusc. All in all, the
pictures vera the bent seen here in
innnv a, day.
The Revelers, under the direction
of Miss Fern Hutchison and Cousin
Jliltleburgcr, put on a fine vnude
illc background for the pictures
notwithstanding the fact that three
of their best acts failed them nt tht
lust minute on account of indispo-i-tion.
Special mention should be
made of the Dutch comedy stunt by
Jlittleburgcr, tho Yiddish cowboy
duet b3' Cousin nnd Sooysmith nnd
tho quartet work of Fish, Vuwtcr,
Mil tic-burger and Newbury.
Mora Show h IromUctl
lien Sheldon, who ns a committee
of the club had charge of the enter
tainment, promises that last even
ing's success shall be tho forerunner
of others of equal class. This is
one of tho many ways tho Commer
cial club is advancing n better,
htrongcr community spirit.
The club and public owo a vote of
thanks to Mnnnger Gordon of the
Page for his generosity in donating
tho uso of the theater.
