Unknown thieves broke into the Medford Storage company's plant some time Saturday night and stole a case of butter. The same gang is also supposed to have broken the seal on a box car and broken open a number of boxes. The loss in this direction cannot be determined until the shipping bills are received and checked over. Southern Pacific detectives and the police are investigating both cases. There are also reports of chicken house raids Saturday night in the farm districts. Tramps, as usual, are blamed for the thieving.
The Medford baseball team and Manager Ewing journeyed to Talent Sunday afternoon and were beaten by the Talent team 7 to 6 in a close and exciting game, part of which was played in the rain. The Medford team fell before an eighth-inning rally, after tying the score, and while as a whole they put up a good defense, showed the need of a little polishing in the rough spots. A number of Medford people autoed to the game. Almost the entire population of Talent was in attendance and the victory was the first over this city in many months.
GRANTS PASS, Ore., April 6 — Sixty acres of loganberries are now being planted out on the Rogue River Orchards tracts between this city and Merlin, this being the first extensive planting of this popular fruit in southern Oregon. The plantings are being made under the direction of H.A. Hill, horticulturist, for the orchard company, and the plants are being received at Merlin in stated shipments from a Willamette grower, from whom 34,000 plants were contracted for this spring's delivery, and already a great many of them have been received and are now in the ground. The spring has been an excellent one for the setting out of the young berry vines, and the recent rains and fine growing weather have given them the best kind of a start.
