The benefits of the parcel post to local merchants were shown at a meeting held yesterday night by the Medford Merchants Association when steps were taken to adequately advertise along the rural routes that the farmers and ranchers can order by mail from local houses and have goods shipped to them by mail. A.C. Hubbard and Blain Klum led the discussion.
The committee, having in charge the matter of securing a cannery in the valley, reported splendid progress in securing subscriptions. It is believed that the proposition will be a success.
The merchants took steps toward assisting in the entertainment of the delegates in the I.O.O.F. Grand Lodge to be held here next week and to assist in welcoming the ad men Saturday.
Arrangements have been completed for the leasing of a telegram circuit from the ringside at Vernon, Calif., to the Isis Theater for next Tuesday night to carry the returns blow by blow of the Bud Anderson-Joe Mandot fight. The wire will be manned by expert press telegraphers and the returns will be as fast as the fight itself, not a second elapsing between the time a blow is delivered until it is announced in the Isis Theater. Moving pictures will be thrown on the screen from 8:15 until the returns commence. The entertainment will be as proper for women as for men. Tickets are on sale tomorrow at the Postal Telegraph office.
IF YOU ARE A DRINKING MAN
You had better stop at once or you'll lose your job. Every line of business is closing its doors to "drinking" men. It may be your turn next. By the aid of ORRINE thousands of men have been restored to lives of sobriety and industry.
We are so sure that ORRINE will benefit you that we say to you that if after a trial you fail to get any benefit from its use, your money will be refunded.
When you stop "drinking," think of the money you'll save; besides, sober men are worth more to their employers and get higher wages.
Costs only $1 per box. We have an interesting booklet about ORRINE that we are giving away free on request. Call our store and talk it over. Leon W. Flaskins.
