Editor's note: There was no July 16, 1916, paper.


The Woodmen of the World, camp No. 90, which has recently closed a great campaign for increasing its membership, and whose membership now borders on the 300 mark, last Wednesday evening at their regular meeting installed new officers for the ensuing term. The new officers are:

E. C. Sullivan, C. C.; N. W. Borden, A. L.; H. G. Shearer, banker; Robert N. Boyl, escort; Ernest White, watchman; Cartha Snyder, sentry; J. H. Atwell, manager.

The officers just retiring have worked most faithfully for the order during their term of office, and the newly elected officers will soon make arrangements for further campaigns. One of the first things in the interest of Woodcraft is expected to be a Woodmen of the World county picnic, to include all the camps and members of the order in Jackson county. This will be a great day for Woodcraft in Rogue River valley.


Playing to probably the largest crowd of the season, the Medford band, directed by Reginald G. Rowland, gave a delightful concert at the city park on Friday evening. The selections by the band were well received, the large audience enthusiastically demanding encores to almost every number. The overture "Choral" and the selection from the "Bohemian Girl" were the best efforts of the band, although some of the lighter selections seemed very popular. The hundreds of people that congregate at the park before the appointed commencing hour of the concerts has been very noticeable of late. On last Friday evening at 7:45 every seat in the park was taken. Now that the permanency of our good band and popular park concerts is assured, more adequate seating accommodations would be welcome by the patrons of these entertainments.


The Wallula Campfire Girls from Grants Pass are camped where Thompson creek runs into Applegate. The girls are having a fine time. They go on ten-mile hikes every day and together, with the Applegate Middy Girls, they go for a daily swim. Wednesday night the two clubs had a picnic spread at the camp and afterward, entertained each other at the Rose hall.
