COUNTY COURT IS WILLING TO AID RED CROSS WORK

A delegation headed by Mrs. Noblett of this city and with representatives from all section of the county, called upon the county court this morning, and requested the county to appropriate $75 per month for the maintenance of the Red Cross work. No action was taken, but the court promised to work out some method whereby the request could be granted.

The Jackson County Dairymen’s association also called, and requested that steps be taken to procure a tuberculosis test for all cattle in the county. This plea was also held in abeyance, and will likely be granted.

County Agent C. C. Cate requested that the $1,800 allowed in the county budget for assistants be forwarded to the state authorities at Salem at once. The county furnishes the money, and the state handles it, so as to come under a provision of the federal law allowing $800 for such work.

Bills were audited and routing matters attended to and this afternoon the county court will begin the preliminary work of drawing a jury list for the ensuing year, which under the state law effective January 1, will include 250 women.

DON’T ORDER CALENDARS FROM OUT OF TOWN

Do not order calendars, blotters, fans, etc., from traveling men and pay more than you can buy them for at home. You pay the traveling expense. Patronize home industry and save money. The Medford Printing company has one of the finest lines of calendars of every kind and description, including the large figure pads, jumbos, etc. They are supplied ready to mail if wanted. We do not ask you to order now for 1923 and could not take many orders at this time of the year if we tried because we are a home institution, and the average business man will not order so far ahead and it is not necessary. Traveling salesmen insist on buying now for 1923 because they have to cover a large territory.

Please wait for our salesman later in the year and save money.
