  • All who are interested in civic work are urged to join the civic department of the Greater Medford club, which holds its first meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 22nd in the library building. There is much to be done in the way of municipal housecleaning in the city, a work which is generally left to the women. Dr. Thayer, the city health officer, will discuss plans for inspection of markets and stores.
    The Mann white slave act will be taken up by Mr. Mulkey. Two different decisions have been handed down, one by a western judge and another by an eastern one. Mr. Mulkey will discuss both decisions.
    In addition the four measures which are to be voted upon November 4th will be freely discussed.
    Merchants at their regular meeting at the Medford Hotel last night adopted a resolution favoring the issuance of $50,000 bonds for the building of a reserve reservoir and pipeline to protect the city in case of repetition of the break in the water pipe under the Bear Creek Bridge, which left the city helpless before fire and disease. The sense of the meeting was that one warning was enough.
    After discussion of the merits and demerits of "green stamps" and "catalogues," a committee was ordered appointed to make a report on the questions. The merchants decided to continue the $10 a month subscription to the Pan-Hellenic society rest room for the balance of the year.
    On Home Industry
    L. Samuel, founder and general manager of the Oregon Life Insurance company made a logical talk on the advantage of Medford business men cooperating and upbuilding Medford institutions, and Oregon institutions and thereby keeping Oregon money in Oregon. He urged them to get rid of the parasites who live of the Medford business man and contribute nothing to his prosperity. He called attention to the fact that the Medford business man builds the schoolhouses, churches, streets and other conveniences which the parasite uses without a thank you, but when the parasite needs merchandise he sends away for it because possibly it appears to him that he can save a little by doing so. Referring to the fruit industry which he declared was but in its infancy, he urged business men to cooperate with growers so that a larger home market for fruits be made by educating the people to use fruits more liberally as an everyday diet and because of the superior medicinal qualities of fruits in general, and the apple more particularly.
