MEDFORD APPLES SUNK BY U-BOAT

In the cargo of a steamer, sunk recently off the coast of England by a German submarine, was a consignment of Newton apples from the Frink estate, south of Medford, and other small shipments from the Rouge River Fruit association. There will be no loss to the local growers, as the ship and cargo were well covered by insurance. The fruit left Medford October 17. Word of the sinking was received Saturday morning from Dennis Kimball & Pope of New York, though whom the fruit was consigned.

FIRST ACCIDENT OF SEASON IN COASTING

The first accident due to the fall of snow this season occurred Saturday morning when the small son of Mr. and Mrs. James Rock of Jacksonville was injured. Three boys were seated on a sled, coasting down the Reames hill at Jacksonville, when the sled crashed into a fire hydrant. The Rock boy suffered a dislocated hip. The others escaped with but slight injuries. It was necessary to administer chloroform before the dislocation could be reduced. Dr. Seely, who attended the injured boy, reports him resting easy this afternoon.

HIGH SCHOOL CONCERT PROVES A SUCCESS

The concert given last evening by the Medford high school orchestra was a great success from start to finish. Each number was rendered with execution, which would have done credit to an orchestra of much larger practice.

Much credit is due Miss French, the conductor, for her unceasing efforts in behalf of the orchestra.

Besides the many instruments selections, there were two vocal numbers of which mention must be made. The solo, "O Dry Those Tears," Del Riego, sung by Miss Nana Seely was especially commendable, and the sextet "Lullaby," Brahms, sung by Meryl Davis, Fern Wing, Laura Fouts, Myrtle Purkeypile, Helen King and Eunice McLoughlin, was excellent.
