ASHLAND, Jan. 27. — Many people venerate traditions and love the beautiful, but few have respect for stale eggs. A case in point occurred Monday in Justice Thomas' court, when S.H. Black of this locality plead guilty to a charge of violating the pure food laws and was fined $50 and costs on two counts respectively, a total of $105.50. It has been his custom to place eggs in cold storage in wholesale quantities and act the part of the jobber by placing them with retailers in job lots as a strictly fresh product. This practice has been going on for some time past. Developments showed that none of the eggs were minors, and that quite a number had attained a ripe old age. The Ashland Trading Co. and Nims & Saunders, local grocers, filed the complaint.

ASHLAND, Jan. 27. — In order to clinch the prohibition measure carried at the recent general election and make its state-wide scope of influence all the more effective, the mayor and city council have memorialized the legislature to pass a constitutional amendment upholding the provisions of the electoral enactment. A specific purpose of this petition to the legislators is to forestall any action which the so-called hotel men's association may take in seeking to have mitigated the ban which voters throughout the state in November placed upon the liquor traffic and its allied interests. This action of the council is in line with a general movement of like tenor in various localities.

ASHLAND, Jan. 27 — The armory is to be the scene of a lively sporting event and smoker on Thursday evening. A preliminary four-round boxing match between "Kid" Brownie and "Fat" Lowe will be followed by the main event, a six-round bout between "Young Burney" and "Pride of Beulah," tipping the scales at 135 each. The preliminary kids weigh in at 133 pounds. The ring will be pitched in the armory drill room, one of the most spacious assembly halls in southern Oregon. The pseudonyms given are those of local sports, some of whom belong to First Company C.A.C., athough the boxing affair is not given directly under the auspices of the artillery organization.
