Mail Tribune 100: December 5, 1913

For the third consecutive year the Medford depot has won the gold medal awarded for most perfect station on the Southern Pacific railroad system. The depot is not only the handsomest in Oregon but the best kept — perfect in its arrangements.

Not only can the Southern Pacific be proud of its depot, but also of its local agent — for in A.S. Rosenbaum, Medford has the best agent of any city in the country. While devoted to the company Mr. Rosenbaum lets no opportunity pass to please the people, and Medford ranks next to the Espee in his estimation.

If death should suddenly call Mr. Rosenbaum, he is said to desire that he be run over by a Southern Pacific engine. His will is said to specify that his remains be cremated and the ashes thrown on the Southern Pacific right-of way.


"Ragging" is now tabooed at Talent following a spirited fracas during a dance in that city Saturday night. A delegation of citizens headed by Harrison Morrison appeared before Prosecutor Kelly this morning and four warrants for disturbing the peace will be issued today. A gent objected to being warned not to "rag." He was ejected. Friends came to his aid and guns were pulled, threats hurled and spurs clanged with incipient fist fights on the side.
