  • District Attorney Kelly spent Monday at Rogue River trying a civil case. Steffy vs. Jones, in the justice court before a jury composed of three ladies and three men, which he declares is the first time in the history of southern Oregon that women have served on a jury. From his viewpoint the women made good, promptly agreeing upon a verdict for the plaintiff.
    "All this talk," he says, "about women not making good jurors is bosh. They have a most high regard for their oath. We have heard so much about women being influenced by sympathy or prejudice, but there is nothing to it. The plaintiff was an entire stranger to the ladies on the jury, while the defendant was a neighbor and intimate friend, and the defendant's wife hobnobbed with the lady jurors during the recess hour in a manner that would have broken a court bailiff's heart, but when it came to returning a verdict they promptly agreed on one against their friend and neighbor."

    GOLD HILL, Ore., June 8. — In a free-hitting contest, with over 300 fans yelping encouragement to both teams, Gold Hill defeated the Talent tossers in a game replete with sensational plays on Sunday afternoon by a score of 8 to 9.
    Until the fourth inning the home team maintained the lead, when Talent tied and in the succeeding innings maintained a lead until the ninth, when Gold Hill copped two and cinched the game.
    This is the second consecutive defeat Talent has met with in encountering the local boys, the one of the Sunday previous having classed the last encounter as classic baseball, but not in interest or excitement.
    By the last victory the Gold Hill club ceases to be a tail-ender in the league procession, attaining third place, and relegating Talent in the rear. Local fans believe and point to the last two games as evidence that the team has now gained its wind and that the recent strengthening by new players makes it a worthy contender for top place, although four more battles are in prospect.
    They will play Medford at that city next Sunday, June 14. The Medford team at present heads the Valley league.
