Mail Tribune 100, Dec. 17, 1921

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

Dec. 17, 1921


A special meeting of the Christian Worker’s Band was called recently for the purpose of arranging for a program and tree at the county farm next Thursday night. A small fund raised at a recent box social, augmented by gifts from the young peoples’ societies, will be used to furnish decorations and the usual candy and nuts. The program will be largely drawn from the children’s exercises to be given by the various churches in order to afford the old people the unwonted atmosphere of childhood at the Christmas session. Carols will be sung also.


Work at the Trigonia well has progressed favorably this week. There have been daily eruptions of gas, the one Thursday being of greater force than any preceding — and drove material up over 300 feet in the casing. This is now being cleaned out and it is expected will be completed today. The showing of oil is by far greater than a week ago. It has been estimated that the bailing are fully one-fifth oil. Work will be carried on tomorrow — Sunday.


People trust banks because they keep money safely, and then scold them because they persist in keeping it.


If any nation thirsts for concentrated trouble hereafter, let it follow America’s plan and brew it at home.


One reason we worry so much is because we don’t have to wait for the stage coach to bring us news from the other side of the country.


Knocks at your door. We can offer you a nice three acre home: 5 room house, good barn and outbuildings, on fine road, close in to Medford, the price is $2,650. This is less than a modest little (home) on a 50 foot lot will cost in town, while with this home you can have you own good jersey cow, poultry, garden, berries, etc.

It is a splendid time to look at property of this kind as they are going to be scarce around Medford in the near future, and of course that means the prices will be going up rapidly.

We are in a position to show you some of the best values in town and country property that we have had on our lists for some time.

BROWN & WHITE, Holland Hotel Corner.
