The reception to the teachers of the local schools last night at the high school building under the auspices of the parent-teachers associations was a very pleasant affair attended by several hundred teachers, parents and patrons of the schools. At the conclusion of the program refreshments were served.

The address of welcome was delivered by C. M. Thomas of the school board, and the response was made by superintendent Aubrey G. Smith. The musical selections consisted of vocal solos by Forrest Edmeades and Mrs. George Andrews, a violin solo by Carleton Janes, and singing by a quartet composed of Mr. and Mrs. George Andrews, Mrs. Edna Isaacs and George Maddox.


The preliminary hearing of Raleigh Matthews, farmer boy, held on a charge of second degree murder for the shooting death of Wilbur (Wig) Jacks at Eagle Point last Tuesday morning, was called in Justice of the Peace Glenn O. Taylor’s court this afternoon at 2 o’clock. Seven witnesses, all from Eagle Point were summoned by the state. The defense was represented by Attorney Charles Reames.


The week’s work at Trigonia well was devoted to setting casing, nine hundred feet of the full string being put in. The work was slow because of changing from California to Standard thread pipe, and to careful sorting of the pipe to secure the best for the heavy water pressure in the bottom of the hole. In handling this pipe, all of which is second hand and somewhat rusted, the crew exercised the greatest degree of skill, and it has thus far been conducted without misadventure and is progressing satisfactorily.


An immense crowd is in the city today from the country districts and the towns of the county and from parts of northern California to witness the circus doings. The day is an unusually busy one for the members of the police force. Thousands witnessed the unloading of the circus trains this forenoon.


Better pick up some of the print paper on rolls for wrapping goods and save money. Comes with cores in to fit roll paper racks. Much cheaper than wrapping paper.
