  • That the Medford merchants have progressive ideas is shown by their action in the Merchants' association meeting Monday night, when they voted to close all stores on Saturday evenings during July and August, provided it can be arranged with the merchants who were absent, and a committee was appointed with power to act.
    It was also decided that on July 4 stores will be closed all day, excepting the meat markets and grocery stores, and they will remain open in the morning, the hours to be announced later.
    The association will send a delegate to the state meeting of the Merchants' association in La Grande, June 22 to 24, leaving his selection with the executive committee.
    The meeting was held in the basement of the Methodist Church, and the banquet was served by the ladies of the church. The meetings and banquets will be dispensed with during the warm months, and the next one will be held the third Monday in September.

    The Foley & Buck Carnival Co. with car loads of amusement devices arrived in Medford from Redding, Calif., yesterday, and have now spread their tents of amusements, concessions and riding devices, preparatory to amusing the people of this vicinity for a week under the auspices of the baseball club.
    With the carnival company is Elizabeth, better known as the living doll — the leading feature and drawing magnet with the shows. Elizabeth is only 21 years of age, 27 inches high and 32 pounds in weight. Nature has endowed this little lady with a perfect symmetrical figure and a pleasant chic demeanor, full of life and vivacity. Her accomplishments are many — a charming musician and vocalist, a clever dancer and as a linguist she is a wonder, speaking fluently in six languages, Hungarian, Spanish, Italian, German, French and English, and is always glad to entertain visitors. Be sure and see her in the living doll pavilion next to the Ferris wheel.
