PAGET QUITS IfALY
A CALIFORNIA CANARD
OSLO must go away from homo to -learn tho news. From
Oakdale, Stanislaus county, California, comes tho an
nouncement thai the Carnegie library at Medford is a fail
ure and the city would like to get rid of it. Tho Oakdale
Graphic contains the follewing:
Tho only difficulty regarding a Carnegie Library that wo havo over
heard is that with reference to tho library In Medford, Oregon. Where
thero is ono city dlteatlsfled, It Ib safo to say thero nro hundreds that
aro morethnn pleased. A city that Is going down hill might object to
keeping tip .ch a library as Medford has, but tho cities of California aro
not going In that direction. Oakdale certainly Is not, '
Passing the slur upon Medford, which iliio be expected
from California towns, the uncalled-for and unjustifiable
attack upon the public library is anm'.ing. Jt would be
interesting to learn the source and object.
The assertions made are false in evory particular. The
Carnegie library has given universal satisfaction and
proved a great convenience to the city, as Avell as a source
of profit and pleasure to thousands. It has bad a very
rapid growth, and despite constantly increasing facilities
finds it difficult, to keep up with public demands. . .
No portion of iho taxation is more cheerfully paid or
more wisely expended than that for the library and the
only regret is that more funds are not available.
Tf a vote were taken today upon the continuance of the
library, it is safe to say that thero would not be a vote cast
in the citv against it.
A NEW USE FOR PARCEL POST
CLAIMING that the Southern Pacific is trying to put
him out of business by delaj'ing shipments of news
print, in order to oblige the local octopus, the Klamath De
velopment company, whose collar he refuses to wear, Pub
lisher Sam Evans of the Klamath Northwestern lias1
started a novel boycott of the railroad by shipping in his
news paper by parcel post.
In a signed editorial t)ic publisher declares war to a
finish upon the Southern Pacific, cencluding:
Meantime tho Southern Pnclfic will get as Utile of my business as Is
possible for it to have. Thero is now a little moro than 5000 pounds of
paper on tho way to this office. I have directed that Ifbo made Into
small packages and shipped by parcels post. Until a now schedulo is put
Into effect by tho Postotflco Department, tho railroad loses money on all
heavy packages that It carries for Undo Sam. We should worry. None of
tho railroad officials have put their automobile in hock yet.
Here is a new use for the parcel post. It suggests un
limited possibilities for isolated communities where the
freight rate is high. It causes a good deal of annoyance
to the railroads, if not actual financial loss, but it guaran
tees speedy delivery, for railroads dare not delay mail ship
ments to suit the whim of employes or satisfy the grudge
of big shippers.
COLT BORN WITH

REDDING, Cnl., April 2. A colt
