Two indictments against Ernest S. (Dud) Wolgamott, charging him with possessing intoxicating liquor were returned Thursday afternoon by the grand jury. Bail on one was fixed at $1,000 and the other, a re-submitted indictment, remains at the same bond.

A not true bill was returned against A. Cowan, charged with assault. Cowan was brought back from Yreka, Cal., to answer to the complaint. He was alleged to have hit Al Clement over the head with a floor scraper during a fight at the Medford Concrete Construction Co. on North Riverside.

The grand jury expects to conclude its work this evening and file a report.

The sessions of the petit jury will begin next Monday, and the term is expected to last a week or ten days.


The Page theatre is proud to present tomorrow the biggest and greatest Lloyd comedy in a bill of snap, pep and high speed, that includes Rudyard Kipling’s immortal classic of the east and west, “Without Benefit of Clergy,” and the local pictures taken by Miss Louise Lovely in the Page theatre recently. Harold Lloyd couldn’t have put any more thrills in his comedy feature “Never Weaken,” unless he had broken his neck. It is without doubt the greatest thrill comedy ever made. “Without Benefit of Clergy” is one of the big pictures of the year. It will be a delight to those who love Kipling’s writings and prove a satisfactory film attraction to the fan who cares not who the author of a picture is so long as it is good entertainment.

The local motion pictures taken by Louise Lovely on the stage of the Page theatre recently, will be an added attraction on this monster bill, playing tomorrow, Sunday and Monday.


The recent burglaries in Medford are causing many people to consider the security of their homes while they are taking their vacation and the house is untenanted. Many of the houses which have been burglarized have been built for a number of years and the door and window fastenings are not giving the service required of them. Any piece of machinery will wear out with use and such is the case with the fastenings. If this is the case at your house, call the Medford Furn. & Hdw. Co. Phone 36-J. They will investigate your needs and will give you an estimate on re-hardwareing with new up-to-date goods.
