Mail Tribune 100

Sept. 16, 1916


The names of the two Jackson county girls and two boys prize winners at the county fair, who will be sent by the fair association to Salem to attend the state fair for a week, were announced this morning.

Leta Stevens of Talent received Grand Prize for the club project work in canning; Lucille Holdridge of Talent in sewing; Adin Hazelton of Eagle Point, in corn raising and Cecil Ager of Talent in farm and home handicraft.

The four winners will leave with their attendants the last of the month and will be entertained during state fair week at the school and camp on the grounds.

Prize winners in other divisions will be announced later.


The most enjoyable dance of the season took place at the Natatorium last evening. A great many of the out-of-town people availed themselves of the opportunity to attend. The large floor was in excellent condition, and the music rendered by Professor Howell's five-piece orchestra was highly complimented.

As a final climax of the fair festivities another dance will be given at the Nat this evening, when the largest attendance of the week is expected.


After being lost and wandering through the hills for twenty-four hours, Mrs. Ed H. Allen of Grants Pass was found by searching parties at 5 o'clock Friday evening in the vicinity of Fish lake, in the Umpqua, about five miles from the camp occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Allen and their son. No bad results are expected from their experience.

Ten men of the forestry department, over whose telephone lines the first word of the lost woman was given, assisted in the search, in addition to others camped near Fish lake.

Mr. and Mrs. Allen and their son left Grants Pass September 3 for Fish lake. Mr. Allen is connected with the Grants Pass Lumber company.
