TABLE ROCK TABLETS

Old settlers in this vicinity were very sorry to hear of the passing of J. G. Martin in Medford a few days ago. "Uncle Joe" as he was familiarly known in these parts, resided among us for several years, during which time he won the high esteem of all who met him.  The Medford Sun of September 16, containing a copy of the letter of Gifford Pinchot, in which he states why he will support a certain man for president, is being passed among the neighbors.  Otto Jeldness was out this way Thursday delivering new Fords to Col. Washburn and to William Kinny of Sams Valley. Mr. Jeldness claims that they can sell Fords faster than they can get them from the factory.  Our community won second prize on district exhibits at the county fair, scoring some 80 points, which was quite a surprise to many, as very little interest was taken this year by many of our ranchers. Probably we are taking too much credit when we say " our community" won the prize, but as a matter of fact, more than 95 percent of the exhibits come from this community, although the district included all the territory between Gold Hill and Devenger Gap.
