Editor Medford Patriot, (may his scribed decrease!)
Awoke one from u deep dream of peai.-e'.'
And saw within the moon-lifflit, in his room.
Making it rich and like a lily bloom,
An angel, writing in a book of gold
Exceeding cheek had made Palmer bold.
And to the presence in the room he said:
"What writest thou?" The vision raised its head;
And, with a look fit to scare a beast,
Answered: "The names of papers that are read the least
"And ain't mine alright!" quoth T. J.; "Nay not so,"
Replied the angel. Then "whiskers" spoke more low,
Hut cheerily still, and said: "I pray thee speak!
Write me, as one who tries to do a man each week "
The angel wrote and vanished. The next night
tie came again, with a great wakening light -
Andl^howed the names of all papers God detests;
And lo! the Medford Patriot led all the rest.

miles east of Pond Creek, was kicked
on one of his legs by a farm horse, the
first of last week, breaking the leg.
Blood poison set in and he died Thurs-

well-to-do farmer, about 60 years of
age. He was a soldier in the civil War
and a highly respected man.

other surplus-prodticing countries. If
}he Russian wheat production falls be-
, low last year's low level, only France
and possibly Italy can be said to have
surpassed materially the harvest of
1900; and as both France and Italy are
importing countries, their larger crops
can increase only indirectly the wheat
surplus available for the international
Now that harvesting in the northern
hemisphere is practically completed,
interest is being diverted southward to
Argentina, India and Australia. The
question how far these countries can
be expected, six months hence, to sup-
ply the deficiencies of northern har-
vests will soon become a potent inHu-
euce on the course of wheat prices.
With a moderate increase reported in
the wheat acreage and favorable
growth so far, Argentina may possibly
produce a larger surplus than last year.
The wheat crop in I ndia, on a reduced
area, is described as growing well, in
spite of general lack of rain fall, al-
though in Bengal, on the contrary,
floods have caused damage Austral-
ian conditions are much less promising.
Insufficient rain has not only retarded
The forecast of the world's crops
made by the Hungarian Minister of
Agriculture indicates a shortage of 289
million bushels of wheat and 450 million
bushel of corn compared with 1906; for
for rye, barley, and oats small increas-
es are noted. The estimated decrease
in the wheat crop is much smaller than
appears in most of the trade estimates.
It should be noted, however, that an
increase of 53 million bushels is attrib-
uted to Russia, if the preliminary of-
ficial estimate of that country, which
has subsequently appeared, be substi
tilted, the world's total for 1907 would
be reduced 3,075 million bushels, or 373
million bushels less than in 190t>.
Grocers- -Clean and Unclean.
In the November number, Woman's
Home Companion gives these impress-
ive figures in its campaign for clean
"There are eighty-four million peo-
ple in . the United States. For their
food twelve billion dollars are spent an-
' 'Eighty-four million stomachs to be
fed this year at a cost of twelve billion
dollars. Allowing a very small average
that half the marketing will be done by
mail, telephone or through solicitors
and children, forty-two million people
will be fed by women who do not know
nor do they try to know their grocers;
and six billion dollars' worth of food
will be bought without the supervision
of the woman who knows her grocer.
This food, distributed by grocers, clean
and unclean, includes nearly 3,090,000
tons of sugar, 834,667,023 pounds of
coffee, 175,000,000 pounds of prunes,
17,854,768 bushels of rice, 84,000,000
barrels of flour and 84,000,000 pounds
' 'All of these commodities must be
handled by various clerks aed delivery
men before they pass from the grocery
store to your pantry. Don't you think
it is about time you got acquainted with
your grocer and his helpers? Are the
men and boys who handle the foot! for
your family worthy of the trust?

time has built up a very extensive
practice, and the beauty of it is, every
patron, as soon as he has his work
done, goes to spreading' the news
that Medford has the best dentist in
the whole Southwest.

Branch has commenced the study of
this profession under his tutelage.

gentleman, who guarantees all his

ber Maj. Blasdell took 899. N. Chance

Ask some of your farmer acquain-
tances how much wheat they are put-
ting in this fall and you will be sur-
prised the number that will tell you
twenty to forty acres. This means
that the farmers are beginning to re-
alize that their ground is worth more
to raise some other crop, besides it is
time a change of crop was given the
land in this country, or it will become
poluted with insects that the invasion
of the green bug last spring will be
mild compared with what will come if
a change is not made.
For A Name.
It. F. Md'erren wishes to adopt a
name for his extra fine creamery butter
that has but recently been put on tbe
market. To the lady in this city who
will suggest a name which his compa-
ny adopts, he will make her a present
of two 1 lb. cartoons of the finest but-
ter she ever saw. Get your ideas to
work, ladies, and send the names in
to tbe Grant County Creamery C<
A New Magazine.

presume will be placed on sale here.
If you read one number you will cer-
tainly look for the next one.
Do You Have Headache?

Rosa, the two-year old daughter of
Mrs. Cord. Young, was at Mrs. Has-
selbring's a few days ago and in some
way got hold of a can of concentrated
lye and ate some of it, which severely
burned her mouth, tongue and throat.
After the little one had been quieted
and had gone to sleep on the bed in a
room, her mother heard her scream.
Hastening into the room, found the lit
tie one covered with blood. She had
been attacked by a ferocious rat, which
ran away when the mother entered the
room. We trust the little one will
speedily recover, but the burns are very
