James Kershaw, the Angora goat king of Antelope Creek, yesterday brought out six coyote hides — which he took to the county seat and claimed a bounty of $1.50 each. Kershaw kills many coyotes each year.
One of the brutes was a monster so large, in fact, that Kershaw threatened to claim a wolf bounty for it. It was evidently rather old and at least a foot longer than the others.
"Hunting is good in the hills," states Kershaw, "and it keeps us busy keeping our goats protected."
Acting on the complaint of the hotel and restaurant men that they were losing considerable silverware in the garbage being hauled away daily from their premises, Chief of Police Hittson visited the several garbage men in the city and recovered over 75 pieces of silver. For a long time the garbage men in the city made a practice of returning the silverware found in the garbage but recently none had been coming back, the collectors saying they had failed to find any. Complaint was made to the chief, who investigated.
Carrying with them over $2,000 of local money with which to back Bud Anderson, "pride of Medford," against Kayo Brown in their scheduled 20-round ring contest at Vernon next Saturday, Messrs. Hafer Worthington and Fox left for Los Angeles.
The money they took with them represents a large number of local fight fans, loyal to Anderson.
It is impossible to secure a bet on the outcome of the go in Medford as there is no absolute dearth of Brown money. Betting on the rounds may be resorted to.
Ad Wolgast, ex-lightweight champion of the world, Mrs. Wolgast and Manager Tom Jones will arrive in Medford tomorrow evening to spend several days in the valley. The information was contained in the following telegram received by Mose Barkdull today:
"San Francisco, March 11. — Mose Barkdull, Medford, Oregon: Will leave tonight for Medford. Will bring wife and Jones. Best regards to all the boys. Ad Wolgast."
Wolgast is interested in a stock ranch near this city and probably will purchase it.
