ADD AIR STUNTS TO PROGRAM AT ASHLAND FOURTH

Ashland, June 24. — Air stunts are to be added features of the big celebration on the Fourth. An expert from the noted aviation field at San Diego, Clyde Pangborn, will introduce them. He is no newcomer here, and has a national reputation as a birdman. With air flights and wrestling bouts by professionals, celebration doings will attain phases even rivaling the excitement of oldtime, roundup annals.

CRATER LODGE NOT OPEN UNTIL JULY 1

There were ten guests at the Crater Lake Lodge last night and a hurry call was sent to Medford today for provisions as there was not enough food on hand to more than take care of the workmen who are making repairs. The management is sending out warning not to attempt to go to the Lodge before July 1st. Anyone who goes in does so at their own risk and will be charged double rate because it is impossible to pack provisions in several miles over the snow to take care of guests who persist in going in before the Lodge is formally opened.

OIL ENTHUSIASM IN VALLEY IS GROWING

A number of Medford business men visited Colonel Mundy’s oil well in the Coker Butte district yesterday and were much impressed by the showing made. The well is now down 750 feet, and in spite of heavy water pressure the top of the bailer bubbled with gas, which burned with a brilliant flame, when a match was applied to the surface. Col. Mundy will now rim through the rock and extend the casing, thus shutting off the water. With this excellent indication of oil and the fine showing made at the Trigonia, oil excitement in the valley is on the increase again.

LOCAL AND PERSONAL

The June bride harvest in this county has been a very good crop this year and there yet remain six days with splendid prospects for many more weddings. Prospective brides and grooms, as well as their relatives and friends, should particularly read the page ad in this issue with suggestions of where to purchase the trousseau and presents. Medford merchants are especially well prepared for everything in this line.
