A hundred excursion tickets to Ashland have been sold by the commercial club for Medford Day at the Chautauqua.

The special train will have been provided by A.S. Rosenbaum tomorrow and leave the uptown depot at Ashland at 10:30 p.m. Round trip will be 55 cents.

Train accommodations for 200 have been proved by A.S. Rosenbaum, general manager for Harriman lines in Medford, and it is expected that this number of Medfordites will show their goodwill to Ashland by going on the excursion, in addition to those who go by autos.


A.C. Randall is showing some perfect Newtown apples, just out of cold storage that are in apparently as good condition as when packed last October. The color is good, meat firm and the flavor better. They are a demonstration of what the new pre-cooling plant will enable the growers to do — hold until the next summer for a better market if desired.


Upon request of Attorney O.C. Boggs, who acted as prosecutor in the Millar trial, Judge Calkins has postponed the filing of his decision reversing the rulings of Municipal Judge Eifert until Attorney Boggs can be heard. The latter contends that the failure by Recorder Foss to file the complaint 10 days before the hearing invalidates the appeal.


Ralph Burgess, the young pitcher who left sometime ago to pitch for the Regina, Sask., team of the Twilight League, returned home this morning.

Burgess was released on account of the team management being forced to reduce the team to 14 players and refused several offers from other teams as he wished to return to Medford.

Medford fans, while strong for Ralph, are glad to see him here again and are waiting eagerly for the game next Sunday with Grants Pass when it is probable that he will do the twirling for the local club.

With Burgess in the box and Gill catching, the team will be strong enough to cope with any of the Northern California clubs this summer and Medford can now expect good baseball.


The first peaches offered in the public market this season were on sale today. They were early Alexanders grown by E.J. Bratney, two miles south of Medford. The supply of Royal Anne cherries still holds out and the great quantity of berries are being disposed of.
