The Percotlripit
makes eiflterDrp Coffee
or percolator Coffee
Xonnenne? Of couran It Ut You can't use the
same kind of maker for both. Nor should you use the
same kind of coffee for both.
In a drip coffee maker, boiling water drips ONLY ONCE
through a coffee specially prepared to yield its flavor
quickly. In a percolator, water passes many timet
through a coffee prepared to yield its flavor slowly. The
same coffee can be used for both methods, but like a
"Jack-of-all-trades" it is "master of none" neither drip
nor percolator. In one or the other, little things happen.
It's a little weak, or a little strong, or a little cloudy, or
it has a little less flavor. It's these little things that make
or mar good coffee. Be sure to use the correct coffee for
each method.
Your grocer has two Schilling Coffces.identical in flavor,
but each is specially prepared for its purpose each one
different in blend, roast and grind.

cape from the Crown Point, Ind., Jail
two weeks ago, was shot down in
a battle with sheriff's officers this
morning, and officers armed with
machine guns were combing the vi
cinity for Dllllnger, who, ho said,
had been with him.
The negro, about 35 yeara old, was
nearly unconscious when he gasped
out the Information that sent all
available officers Into the manhunt
for the desperado who had been the
object of a nation-wide search since
he cowed his Indiana Jail guards with
an Imitation pistol, carved from a
broom handle, and fled.
Tipped on Whereabouts
Four officers, led by Sheriff Wil
liam L. Van Antwerp, went to a store
In the negro section of South Port
Huron, on & tip that a negro carry
ing a gun and boasting of a' Jail es
cape was there.
The suspect met them &t the door,
gave another name, and, when the
officers sought to enter, opened fire.
The officers returned the fire, and
the suspect fell with a wound near
the heart and three bullets In the
abdomen.
Undersherlff Charles 1 Cavanaugh
and Deputy Howard Lohr also fell,
with serious wounds. .Sheriff Van
Antwerp was wounded in the arm.
Deputy Ferris Lucas escaped injury
In the hall of lead.
Taken to a hospital, the negro
said he was the long sought fugitive.
aJiu that Dllllnger and three other
men had been with him In South
Port Huron. '
When hospital attendants washed
his face, they found a scar on each
cheek, hidden by burnt cork. This led
officers to believe that possibly Dll
llnger has been masquerading as a
negro.
City Is Comhed
Every exit from South Port Huron
was placed under guard by sheriff's
officers, state police and local police,
and other officers combed the sub
urb. In search of the fugitives' hide
out. Dllllnger walked out of the Crown
Point Jail March 3, leaving guards
and deputies locked In cells. Since
then, he and Youngblood have been
reported In many sections of the
country and at least one bank robbery
Is attributed to them. The search
has centered for the most part In the
Chicago area, where the motor car
of Sheriff Lillian Holley, In which
Dlltinger and Youngblood had fled,
was found.
Dllllnger, captured In Tuscon,
Ariz., after a search or many months
that started when he was freed from
the Lima, Ohio, Jail In a bloody
foray by outlaw aides, faced a mur
der charge In Crown Point for the
slaying of a policeman. That was one
of many killings attributed to him
during his brief career of crime
which earned him the title of ';cop
killer." .

California Magazine Pays
Roger Cowles High Tribute
(The following tribute, to Roger
Cowles, promising author, who com
mitted suicide in San Franclscj In
January, In a fit of depression in
duced by continued 1)1 nealth. was
printed In' the February Issue of the
Dune Forum, published at Oceano,
California. F.i'ger Cowles spent his
early youth In Medford and attended
school Iiere, later going to Santa Bar
bara, Calif., wth his parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Frederick H. Cowles. The
following appreciation ahows in what
high regard, the literary quality of
Roger Cowles work was held, by one
of the leading literary groups of
southern California.)
"The suicide ot Roger Cowles, who
had promised a contribution to the
Dune Forum as soon as he could get
down to the dunes and talk it over,
is by far the most tragic news of
this month. Even his severest critics
could not but be moved by reading
In the paper that this briUlant ycung
Callfornian, giving up hope cf ever
regaining his health, had taken hl8
life by inhaling the exhaust-pas from
a hired car.
"It was not only his health, how
ever, which caused such desperate
despair although undoubtedly his
consumption had from the start
warped his point of view and caused
the defeatism which colored his whole
life.
"His one novel, published in Eng
land, under the title of 'Distant
Drums and In this country retitled
'The San Feliplans, was well-reviewed
by all the eastern papers, not so
well by the west, where priuo was
stung. Santa Barbara, his own home
town, was particularly incensed.
recognizing Itself as San Felipe, and
not at all flattered by the picture.
"It reminds us of the fury of the
Dublan audiences when Syr.ge's Play-
AT STATE STORE
"Sake" is here which doesn't mean
that a clairvoyant or mystery man has
arrived In the city of Medford. But
that the favorite liquor of the Jap
anese, Is In from the Orient. The
first shipment was unpacked this
morning at the state liquor store on
South Bartlett.
Wrapped In rice straw and stamped
with letters, which even the staff
couldn't read, the blue green bottle,
almost two quarts in size, was at
tracting much attention.
It is made of rice and Is known
to all Island travelers find people fa
miliar with the Orient.
The new shipment of liquors, fill
ing the first order out from the Med
ford store, arrived yenterday and was
made up of 90 cases of numerous va
rieties. The local store Is continuing to do
good, steady business. Manager Earl
Foy stated this morning. The total
for yesterday was $133.55.

presented at the Abbey theater. ( The
rage of Caliban seeing his own Image

sophisticated people like, the English
can thoroughly enjoy beinu satirized
to their faces (witness the Immense
popularity In London of Bernnrd
Shaw.)
"On all sides Roger Cowles was
hounded by the protests of his fellow
citizens. His family did not escape.
Charles Hanson Towne could write
in his Hearst column with delight
at the brllllAUt characterizations, the
delicious satire but then Mr. Towne
lives In New York, and saw only
archetypes where Santa Bnrbarans
saw their friends, sometimes them
selves. "Of course the book was not a lair
picture of Santa BarbHra. or any
other California town. Satire Is never
fair. There were kind people in
Swift's Dublin; fine people in Vol
taire's France,"
"In the long run Ireland and
France gained more than they lost,
angry as they may have been at the
moment. So it will be with Cali
fornia. It Is only a great pity that
Cowles was not strong enough to sur
vive the Indignation of his fellow
citizens, He was too vulnerable to the
sincere arguments of his friends. He
allowed himself ta be convinced that
his one great gift was cruel and un
ethical. He destroyed the whole
manuscript of his second novel. He
tried to write in the vein of kindness.
The next manuscript which he sent
to publishers was refused. Stripped
of his unique gift, he was powerless
to earn a living. And California was
robbed of a genius, which time would
have heightened with each passing
of the mortal personalities he im
personally Immortalized." Dune Fo
rum, February 15, 1934.
E
KNOWN IN YEAR
The magnolia tree, that was plant
ed by Dr. E. B. Plckel, at Main and
Ivy streets more than 30 yeara ago,
and presented to Jackson county and
the Medford Garden club by Mrd.
Amelia Toft, has been moved to the
courthouse lawn. It stands near the
southeast corner.
According to Austin Welt, landscape
gardener, who had charge of the re
moval, It will take a year to deter
mine whether the tree, said to be the
only one of its kind In southern Ore
gon, will survive the transplanting. It
has better than an even chance to
live, according to Welt, as it is natur
ally hardy and has no tap root. It
has been surrounded with peat, which
acts both as, a fertilizer and a mols
turo retainer. Offers of 50 to $100
were made by valley residents for the
tree. The expense of moving the treo
was borne by the General Oil com
pany, which will erect a service sta
tion on the corner..

FLORAL TRIBUTE
A basket of flowers was placed yes
terday at the stone In the city park
that stands to the memory of Con
stable George J. Prescott. It was the
tribute of the sheriff's office to a
martyred co-worker, of another day.
A year ago today. Constable George
J. Prescott, was slain by L. A. Banks.
during the performance of his offic
ial duty while serving a warrant upon
the local agitator. Indicted with ft
score of others for participation In
the ackson county ballot robbery.
Banks was convicted of second degree
murder and is now serving a life term
In state prison, along with aides,
convicted of ballot theft.
The murder came as a tragic cli
max to a long period of community
turmoil In which constituted author
ity was defied.
In contrast to the bitterness and
anxiety of a short year ago, all was
peaceful In Jackson county today.
Hundreds of Jackson county resi
dents regretfully recalled the day,
with the hope the tragedy, or the
circumstances that bred It, would
never come again.
