Helen Keller will be heard at Ashland, in the Armory hall, on the 25th of this month, giving a lecture entitled, "The Heart and the Hand," which has attracted large audiences in every large city in the country. Through unavoidable mischance, it has been impossible to secure a date for this lecture in Medford, and residents of this city who desire to see and hear this noted woman are requested and urged to hand in their names at the public library at an early date. The S.P. will run a special motor to Ashland and return on the evening of the 25th, provided at least sixty fares are guaranteed.
The story of Helen Keller's life and her triumph over seemingly insuperable difficulties afford an inspiration to all who are attracted and moved by the spectacle of unfaltering courage and deep purpose; the opportunity to hear this story at first hand should not be neglected.
Six boys and one man were arrested Wednesday by Game Warden A.S. Hubbard for catching fish in Bear Creek under ten inches in length. They were Vern Slewing, age 16; Ora Wallow, 13; Vern Quigley, 15; Joe Reynolds, 15; Clarence Jones, 13; and Harold Grey, 15. The man was George Reynolds. They had in their possession sixty fish, all under six inches, some under three inches
Bulger's goats disprove the idea that goats are good for nothing but to eat rubbish. Bulger has his animals at the Star Theater today and they are a delight to the children as well as the old folks. Especially popular is "Tuffy" the comedian goat, who is attired in slouch hat, sweater and overalls. "Tuffy" is a common back alley goat with a mind almost as keen as a persons and is probably the best of the seven animals carried by Mr. Bulger. The act is a novel one and very interesting and clever. The photoplays are all good with "The False Bride" as the headliner, with Miss Florence Lawrence in the title role. There is also a short educational subject and the bill closes with a Joker comedy. Coming tomorrow is Mrs. Fiske in "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" produced by the "Famous Player" company and under the personal direction of Daniel Frohman. Notwithstanding the extra cost in securing this bill, the admission will remain as usual.
