The summer season of band concerts is at an end and the last of the series of eight was given in the city park a week ago.

The road and trail from the rim of Crater Lake to the north boundary of the park, six miles this side of Diamond Lake has been finished by Superintendent Sparrow of Crater Lake National park, thus opening up that wonderful scenic and delightful region to the public, as there is a fairly good trail to Diamond Lake form where the Crater Lake trail ends. However, Supervisor Rankin of Crater Lake National forest will build a fine trail thru this six miles to Diamond lake next spring at the latest, thus making a good road all the way between the two lakes.


Features of the public market this morning were the sale of another auto load of fine salmon from the Elk creek hatchery, a load of field corn at 2 cents a pound and many boxes of peaches and tomatoes.

Grieve of Prospect, an employee of the California-Oregon Power company was badly burned about the head and arms, when he short-circuited with his hand an electrical machine in the Prospect sub-station.

He came to Medford Wednesday for medical attention, and his injuries are not serious.
