Repeal of the Dollarhide system of charging a graduating system of tolls for traffic over their toll road over the Siskiyous was effected this morning by the county court issuing an order fixing the rate at $1 per vehicle, irrespective of size, number of passengers or load. Sheriff Singler was ordered to post a notice to this effect at the toll gate and notify Mr. Dollarhide. In case the Dollarhides fail to abide by this regulation, they will be prosecuted under the state law. Reports have reached the county court the toll assessments were being made as high as travelers would pay.
A committee of fruitgrowers walked upon the county court in regard to the appointment of M.P. Henderson of the University of Wisconsin as pathologist under the state law, providing the state pay one-half and the county the other half of his salary. The court took the matter under advisement. Mr. Henderson received the approval of the fruitgrowers meeting last Saturday.
Thousands of the mothers and fathers of Oregon have viewed the splendid exhibit of the Oregon Social Hygiene society. The local committee has arranged for the exhibit to be shown here, and the people of Medford now have an opportunity of seeing this constructive work at 220 West Main Street.
This work has been the means of saving thousands of dollars to the young men of the state through the exposure of the practices of the quack doctors.
There is a vast waste of human energy and a great loss of efficiency chargeable to sex troubles and ignorance. It is the duty of every mother and father in our city to inform themselves on this subject.
The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. for a few days. Literature of society can be secured free of charge.
