Mail Tribune 100, July 28, 1921

The following news items were drawn from the archives of the Mail Tribune 100 years ago

July 28, 1921


More new subscribers have been added to the Mail Tribune and Sunday Sun the past two weeks than during any like period in its recent history.

The people apparently appreciate the unequaled Associated Press service, the only complete leased wire service received by any paper in southern Oregon or northern California, the special feature stories exclusively printed in the Mail Tribune, the general news from every section of the county and from Crater Lake, by live-wire special correspondents, the general news of the city and the special Sunday woman’s and society page, and are responding with their patronage.

This paper is read by more people than all the other papers published in this locality combined, and is therefore recognized as the medium to reach the people of southern Oregon and northern California by the merchants of the city and county and by the national advertisers, and the Tribune is carrying more advertising than for several years, for the reason that it is now read by practically everyone in southern Oregon.

The splendid carrier service along the Pacific highway and in the cities of Ashland, Talent, Phoenix, Jacksonville, Central Point and other cities delivers the papers to these subscribers every evening and the rural routes enables the other subscribers to receive their papers early the next morning. The same carriers deliver the Sun every Sunday morning.


Approximately 12,000,000 trout will be distributed in the various streams and lakes throughout the state before the end of the present year, according to figures which have been complied be M. L.

The work of distribution is now being carried on throughout the state and will be completed by the latter part of September, according to the officials. The trout are of the eastern brook, rainbow and black spotted varieties.
