There was an extra good public market this morning with liberal patronage. Everything seasonable on sale and the first tomatoes and pickles of the season made their appearance. There was an almost over-supply of blackberries, sixty boxes of fine peaches were sold and there was a large supply of sweet corn and dressed hens and fryers.


Vernon Vawter left this morning for Eugene to attend the executive committee meeting of the board of regents of the University of Oregon to discuss replacement or rearrangement of room to accommodate the departments displaced by the fire which destroyed part of the quarters of the University school of journalism, the dispensary, and part of the art school last Saturday.


The Talent Community Club will give a dance next Wednesday night at Jackson Hot Springs.

A series of entertainments of various kinds are being given by the organization of which this is one. The Launspach orchestra, of Medford, will furnish music for the occasion.


Norma Talmadge Coming

Norma Talmadge is the most appealing story she has ever had, “Smilin’ Through,” will be at the Page theater for four days, commencing next Tuesday’s matinée. The picture is made from the play by Allen Langdon Martin, in which Jane Cowl made her most notable success.


Harry Carey at Rialto

Nine hundred head of longhorn cattle pounded up a dust cloud on the Agoure ranch, around and beyond Calabassas, and bellowed for a charge.

“Now go!” shouted Agoure to the man who bestrode the pawing horse at his said; “and God help you,” he added.

The rider spurred out in front of the herd. The bull in the lead reared. Then he lowered barbed horns and charged.

Harry Carey pressed taut reins against his horse’s neck and checked him abruptly. The cow pony balanced himself on one hind leg and wheeled out of the way.

Twenty cameras concealed in trees clicked unromantically.

It was one of those movie scenes that stars are supposed to fake.

The big stampede is one of the thrillers in “Man to Man,” starring Harry Carey, at the Rialto theatre starting tomorrow matinée.
