The 1913 New Year's edition of the Mail Tribune will consist of 38 pages and is by far the largest, most elaborate and costly issue ever printed in southern Oregon.
It is replete with new illustrations and data depicting the resources and developments of the Rogue River valley during the year of 1913, its hopes and prospects for the future.
The last section will go to press at 4 o'clock New Year's Day — and copies can then be obtained for 5 cents each. Postage costs 3 cents. Wrapped and mailed to any address in the United States by the office for 10 cents.
Ten thousand copies will be printed.
The most important social event of the evening will be the fancy dress ball to be given by the ladies of the Greater Medford club through its musical department.
A great many out-of-town guests are to be present and the Colony Club will bring the ranch people from all over the valley. This is to be the most important and select social function ever undertaken by the club.
While a great many will be in fancy costume and some in evening dress, still more will come in party frocks and business suits — to watch with one another the dying gasps of the hoodoo year and the advent of the brand New Year. A blare of toy trumpets and whistles will welcome 1914 in true martial style.
PARIS, Dec. 31 — "La Giaconda," or the "Mona Lisa," as it is also called, arrived here from Rome this afternoon.
The famous painting, stolen from the Louvre two years ago, was received with a demonstration which Parisians could hardly have outdone if it had been the holiest of relics.
Director La Prieur of the Louvre, and a detachment of gendarmes had traveled with it from Modane, on the Franco-Italian frontier. At the station here a score of silk-hatted government officials, 50 policemen and an enormous crowd awaited it.
From the train it was carried tenderly to an automobile and trundled ceremoniously to the government bureau of fine arts through cheering throngs. On the automobile seat, beside the chauffeur, sat a policeman. Inside were M. La Prieur, Chief of Detectives Pujalet and two members of the cabinet.
