  • George Woodin, arrested Sunday morning charged with the theft of $50 from the Stag saloon, was given a hearing before Justice of the Peace Glenn O. Taylor yesterday and bound over the grand jury on $500 bonds. Woodin, who is a porter in the saloon, is alleged to have taken the money from a hiding place under the bar known only to the proprietors and himself. Entrance was made possible by cutting a screen from the back transome. A watch identified as belonging to Woodin was found on the floor near the secret hiding place by Murphy, one of the proprietors, who immediately turned Woodin over to the police.
    At the hearing yesterday Woodin made a general denial of the charge stating that he was not around the saloon Sunday morning at the time the stealing was supposed to have occurred and denied the ownership of the watch. Murphy appealed against him and produced the watch he maintains belongs to Woodin.

    The Medford creamery has been sold by Mrs. W.A. Chappell to A.A. Moody of Ashland, who takes charge July 1.
    Mr. Chappell lately deceased, made a fine trade and a worthy reputation during his brief ownership.
    Mr. Moody has had wide experience in the dairy and creamery business, having operated for 15 years in Troy, N.Y., and was recently with Kent Bros. creamery at Eugene.
    The new management believe that Medford and the rich country tributary thereto is sustaining a great loss by the present method of shipping a large percentage of its cream to distant markets while our own merchants are obliged to send out of the state many thousans of dollars to purchase California butter which does not compare in excellency with our own product.
    Mr. Moody will be assisted by one of the most expert buttermakers on the coast and he guarantees a first class home product.
    This building of a strong home creamery will add much to the prosperity of the Medford district and the dairymen who will fend their assistance.
