Members of Medford’s city baseball team have been putting in good work practicing and the team is rapidly rounding into shape. Sunday they will appear in the new uniforms, which arrived yesterday, for a free exhibition game on the North Holly street grounds at 3 p.m. The money to buy the uniforms was raised by popular subscription and the boys are in hopes the fans will come out and look the team over.

The secretary of the team is corresponding with several northern California towns as well as towns having teams in this end of Oregon and there are prospects of some real baseball this summer as the local team is showing class and has several players far above the average.


The Juniors of our high school have been very fortunate in securing the Pomona College Glee club, one of the finest clubs of California to give their program at the high school Monday evening, April 17th, at 8 p.m.

This is not a vaudeville show, but real glee club music is their aim. Genuine ability is required in rendering such numbers as “The Bugle,” by Foote; “Sea Fever,” by Densmore; “The Chant of the Volga Boatman,” “Sylvia,” by Speaks, and “The Pilgrims Chorus,” from Lombardi, all of which are included in the year’s program.

A well balanced program of club numbers, solos, and humorous encores that can not fail to attract, awaits the audience which will greet this club at the high school Monday night.


The Lachman exposition show train of twenty-five double-length circus cars will arrive in Medford Monday evening, April the 17th and will exhibit for four days commencing Wednesday the 19th on the show grounds opposite the S. P. station.

This will be the first time this big company has ever exhibited in Medford and they promise a clean and up-to-date line of attractions.

One of the feature attraction is Madame Irene and her society circus featuring “Teddy” the firefighting horse. This is a show the young folks will like. Rube G. Warner, the Nebraska Cyclone with his wrestlers and boxers will meet all comers in the big athletic arena. Sheik Mike Zinney and his Arabian Knights will give feats of legerdemain. There are five monster riding devices.

The show band will give concerts every day at 2 and 7 p.m.
