Word is received from Klamath Falls to the effect that robbers attacked E. Whitman, formerly manager of the Eagle Drug Company of this city, and bound and gagged Mrs. Whitman, stole a watch and $60, and left Mrs. Whitman unconscious on the floor.

She regained consciousness and staggered to a neighbor's house, where three men and three women became frightened and wouldn't let her in. They phoned for the police, who found her back in her home unconscious and almost suffocated. Police and doctors arrived shortly and she is now testing well, though severely shocked.

Mrs. Whitman is a sister of Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Paul Hansen of this city.


The demurrer to the indictments against the Medford liquor dealers was argued this morning in the circuit court and the matter taken under advisement. In all probability Judge Calkins will rule on the demurrer within the next week.

The arguments were exhaustive, a large number of cases being cited. It is believed that the questions raised will have to go to the supreme court.


Mrs. Sadie Stephenson, who resides southwest of the city, and her infant child had a miraculous escape from serious injury at Oakdale and Eighth streets yesterday when a horse she was driving became frightened at a bit of paper and ran away. Mrs. Stephenson and her child were thrown from the carriage.

Mrs. Stephenson had the baby in her arms. She struck on her side, rolled over three times, and was not injured to any extent. The child did not even cry. The horse ran into a vacant lot and ran around in circles until stopped. Nothing was broken.

Bystanders who rushed to her aid were startled to see Mrs. Stephenson calmly climb into the rig and proceed on her way.
