rectly gauged, the .trend of paljllc

stand and faced by poaalblo discipline
from tho barber's anion, today an
nounced a reduction ot prices, ef
fective next Monday.
Tho proposed redactions are: hair
cuts from 75 to 5 cents; abaves
from 35 to SC oeats; tho ahloes
from 20 to 15 cemU.
According- to Mr. Bean the aver
ago scale on tho Pacific coast it 25
cents for shares and 50 cents for
haircuts. The reduction therefore
brings shaving to tho gone.'al price
lovet. The difference in the prlco
of hair cutting will be justified In
tho public mind. It Is believed, by
tho generally higher cost ot oper
ating here.
Probably no item ot cost has been
more generally criticized by tho pub
lic than the local tonaorial prices.
Barbers have been getting rapped
on every hand. Traveling wen have
been especially bitter critics and have

Mr. and Mrs., Robert Marx rt

William Marx stuted that the

to bo, but from Klamath Falls to
Crater lako the approachos to the
bridges woro In bad condition. In
some places, a bank olgbt to 12
Inches high made entry or depart
ure from a bridgo unsafe.
In a conversation with J. IK Wise, i
proprietor of tho Ft. Klamath ho
tol regarding tourist traffic to Cra
tor lako by way ot Klamath Falls, It
developed thut Klamath Falls was
being discriminated against by Med
ford boosters and business men, Mr.

coming out by tbo way ot Klamath
Falls .wero told that Topsy grade was
the only oxlt from this city and It
was practically impassablo. Tourists'
wero advised to be sure and return
by way of Medford. .
Klamath Falls day will be hold In
Medford on August 10 and local

would doubtless ask explanation ot
why Klamath Falls is being adver
tised adversely by tho Medfonl peo
plo when ihey know two routes are
