The Farmers’ Directory of Jackson County, Oregon, and Siskiyou County, California, has just been completed by the Medford Printing company’s job office.

The book consists of 208 pages, contains the names of 4331 farmers and property owners in Jackson County and 1445 in Siskiyou County. In addition to each farmers’ name is his post office address, rural route if has one, number of acres he owns, description of land and valuation, distance and direction from nearest city or town and his specialty — stock raising, fruits, etc.

It is a very complete and comprehensive list of farmers and will be valuable not only to the farmers themselves, who can get the data about their neighbors and others, but to the business and professional men as it gives them the names, addresses, etc., of all those who own property in the two counties.

The book also contains a “Foreword of Jackson County,” list of county officers, legal department for farmers, advertisements of a number of business and profession men including twelve colored inserts.

There were 1500 copies issued, some bound with book covers and some with paper. Copies of the same can be secured at this office.

R. E. Kalat is manager of the company issuing the book and has certainly made an excellent success of the first directory.


The American Legion has leased the Natatorium ball room for the winter and extensive alterations are taking place in preparation for regular Saturday and Wednesday night dances to be given there under Legion auspices.

The large hall with its excellent floor is now undergoing a striking change under the direction of an exceptionally able interior decorator at an approximate cost of five thousand dollars. It is declared that it will be practically unrecognizable and will equal any ball room on the Pacific Coast in both beauty and comfort upon its completion.

The opening dance is to be given Thanksgiving eve, Nov. 29th, and an orchestra of excellent musicians has been assembled from out of town to furnish the music for the occasion.

Although the management will not divulge the character of the decorations and what they will represent it is known that an exceptionally attractive and brilliant color scheme is to be used and that a striking effect will be obtained. A large crowd is expected to attend the opening dance next Wednesday night.
