LIFE 10 ESTABLISH
CABARET SCENE EDWARDS W00S
IN ROSE SHOW AND WINS BRIDE
10 BE HUMMER SIGHT UNSEEN
Mrs. Ni L. Trcndwny, representing
Ihu Ainoricnu Institute, of Child Life,
nn educational organization founded
some titno ago by n number of tho
lending educators nud pliihuitltntpists
of America, has nrrived in tho pity
nnd will upend tho next few weeks
nmong the. teachers, hoys, girls nnd
mothers of tho fiiy. Mrs. Trcndwny
comes directly from Cnlifomin, where
nho spent the Inst two yenrs very
successfully in organizing nnd start
ing tho work of n club. Sho says :
"We rcnlizo todny thnt physicnl
parenthood, n house to live in, schools
to study in, nro very inadequate to
stimulate n normal, symmetrical nn
foldment. We are seeking to develop
n conscious, purposeful parenthoed:
n home enriched by soeinl ngencies of
culture nnd inspiring relaxations, n
school supplemented by radiant, per-
sonnlitioH nnd stimulating material,
mid supporting nil this, n rationalised
community lifo which shnll create the
ntmosphore of public opinion in which
nu ideal citizenship may flourish. Six
year ngo n group of earnest people
met in Wusluncton, D. C, nt the call
of President Roosevelt to consider
the child as n national asset. Those
people were all-eminent in education,
literature and government making,
nnd nn they discussed the possibilities
of child culture toward nn enlighten
ed citizenship, they grew enthusiastic
nnd entertained the conviction thnt
if they, through a few dnys' converse,
could get so much information and
generate so much contagious interest
in the subject, what might not a pir
iimnent organization of enlightened
people accomplish if they conserved
the best from all sources, systematiz
ed its distribution and vitalized it
with the personal note of appeal. This
was tile birth of tho American insti
tutc of child life. Its sponsors were
David Starr Jordan, Judge Ben Lind
say, William Furbush (tho boy spe
cialist), Mary V. Grice (founder of
Home and School association) and
many others. The method comprises
the direct touch with each individual
in each family through personal let
ters, pamphlets, books, etc. The sec
retaries get personally acquainted
with tho needs of ench household.
And thus nil tho correspondence and
material sent bear directly on indi
vidual problems; the parents and
children are at liberty to draw from
nil resources of largo free circulating
libraries of tho best literature, to
huvo guidnnco in tho selection of
uroper reading for nil ages and tem
peraments, to be directed in play life.
"Music, culture, homo dramatics
and all intimate details of infant nur
ture, in fact every phase of home life
relating to tho parents and children
has been thoroughly studied by ex
erts nnd the distilled essence of nil
that is best and most practical is at
tho disposal ofthe members.
"Professor Collins, superintendent
of the Mcdford schools, is in deep
sympathy with the movement and has
given his hearty corporation in ex
tending tho institute work here in
Tho headquarters of tho organiza
tion is in Philadelphia. Mrs. Tread
way, who is nt present in Mcdford,
lias tho matter in charge for Oregon.
The cabaret scene in Iho loo so
ciety vnudcxille is dcvclopin into
more of a feature than was contem
plated nt first. If the production is
given with half the animation nnd in
terest which was shown by the per
formers in discussing tho various
gown", robes, creations, etc., which
they intend to wear, the scene will
certainly surpass anything of the kind
ever before shown here.
It is safe to say that there was
never before Mich a I'orgeou display
here at nny $2 show, but the society
has determined to charge Kpulnr
prices 2o, 35 and 50 cent".
Have you seen herf Dolly Vnrdcn,
the girl thnt everybody wants? Wait
till you set? Dolly's dainty dimples
and delightful daring, clad in a Par
isian creation bv the immortal P;uil
Poiret, who does to gowns what tho
futurist docs to Mnintings. This par
ticular confection was ordered from
Paris by cable and is securely hidden
in the impregnable vaults of the Fust
National bank, where vulgar eye may
not behold nor finger touch til s'oil.
Her loveliness will be unveiled to
an eager, waiting world amid the glit
ter nnd brilliance of the cabaret, on
Monday, the 7th.
MEDFORD'S GREATEST NEED

MERRY RATE WAR
BY AUTO TRUCKS
A merry rate war is being wnged by
tho rivVl Medford-Ashland uuto truck
lines for business between the two
cities. It started in by Goodo of
Ashland showing up with orders
feigned by merchants of both cities
agreeing to pay 10 cents per cwt. for
freight shinned, nicked up anywhere
in Mcdford nnd delivered unywhero
in Ashland, or vice versa. Ames of
Talent, running the rival lino, then
cut tho rate to 12 cents. Qoode re
taliated by cutting to 8 cents and the
cut was met by Amos. The Southern
Pacific rate is 10 cents, which does
not iuuludo drnynge at both ends, so
tho shippers are celling the benefit of
Tho county court nlnns to license
automobilo concerns running pancn
gor and freight lines, and so rocover
something for the wear nnd tear of
the road, If tho roncnt laws do not
jilbtify tho Ktngo license, tho Jej.;iH
Jaiiire will be asked to authorize li
cenfeo charges, to bo 1'hed by the

be subscribed nt ireent, ns this
money will not be needed until after
the plant hns been constructed, nnd
during thnt time I anticipate no trou
ble in selling the rcmniuiug stock.
On Monthly Payments
"Realizing the present financial
conditions of the country are not the
best nnd that possibly Medford citi
zens could not pay for their stock in
full at this time, it can be so arrang
ed that subscriptions for stock be
paid in monthly payments to be deter
mined by the board of directors.
"Next season, under normnl condi
tions, our orchards sbouhl produce
not less than 1500 curs of fruit. With
such production it will require over
1,000,000 boxes to box this fruit. This
amount of boxes would tax tho ca
pacity of the plant for the entire
year, as only 50 per cent of the box
lumber will make our local boxes, the
remaining 50 per cent will go into
raisin, prune, orange, lemon and vege
table crates. These boxes will find
a ready market in California.
"Docs Medford want such an en
terprise? Docs Medford want nn
annual payroll of $80,000 disbursed
uraong tho Inborinf men? Doert Med
ord want (o keep $200,000 at home
that is lenving tho valley annually for
lumber nnd otiier materials made
from lumber? And does Mcdford
want to protect future requirements
for lumber nnd boxes, with n plant
owned nnd ojieratcd by Jackson
county people, to first serve the needs
of Jackson county? If so, I am
ready to meet the citizens half way."
Mary Wenjickcr of Kvansville, Ind.,
aged 35 yers, fair cud attractive, ar
rived this morning to become the
bride of Hufus Kdwards, well-known
Medford citizen, reputed to bo well-to-do
and owner of considerable min
ing nnd real property. The wooing
nnd the winning of the bride was 1,
mail, dozens of letters passing be
tween the two in the last six inonth.
'ihe prospective bride and groom
never looked upon each other unt'l
this morning. A marriage license will
he iiocured from the clerk som
Tl.c roninnce now in its final stages
is interesting, nud when the pair are
made one it will be another victory
fcr the matrimonial agency. Mary
Wenjickcr is one out of half a hun
dred candidates tor the hand ot
Ruftis" Edwnrds. To carry on his cor
resiwuidence with likely wives Mr.
Kdwards purchased n tyiicwriler nnd
wrote his lcjtcrs mechanically. He
now has quite n collection of love
epistles. The coming of the bride
was generally known among the
friends of Edward who spread the
glad tidings from the housetops, and
there was n gathering of the curious
nt the deiwt to see the bride-to-be.
She was met at the station by a wo
mnn, who drove her in a buggy to hor
home, where n meeting was arranged.
For his bride, Edwards has built o
new house on Benttv street, nnd when
they are wedded thev will nbide
therein. The marriage ceremony a ill
be celebrated lr u social gathering

BEATS BOBBY EVANS
Bud Anderson, ex-pride of Mcd
ford, celebrated Thanksgiving by
knocking the daylights out of Hobby
Lvans, who was one time a contender
for the pridcship. Kvnns was too
light, and Anderson, when they
clashed at St. Helens, Or., was too
heavy. Hud resorted to his favorite
tactics of pounding the foe on the
kidneys. After six rounds of this,
Evans began to weaken and left the
ring bndly marked and punished. Six
rounds was the extent of the fight,
nud was unscrntched.
Evans is well known in this city
and used to fight every two weeks
with Young Dixon. The bouts were
always brotherly 'affairs. Tommy
MoFnrland whipped him, and he left
the Rogue River valley. He was gen
erally regarded in this section ns
about as helpless as a mnn could be,
and local fans have always hoped
that Anderson would never drift feo
low as to clash with him.
