THE MEDFORD MEN'S CLUB
A Young Organization That Has Started
In Medford, The Banner Town of
A city Is adorned by good citizen
ship, theNhuman body by beauty, the
soijl by 'wisdom, acts by virtue and
speech by truthfulness. Man and
woman, word and deeds, city and
government, we ought to praise it
praiseworthy and blame if blame-
worthy. For it is equally wrong and
• stupid to Censure what is commend-
able, and to commend what is cen-
surable. A man's faith is as much
his own as his reason is.
The movement started a few weeks
ago and now oiled with new machin-
ery in spink- span trim to "GO,"
.'was given the word "GO" at the
High School auditorium in Medford
Sunday afternoon, when ninety-six
men who belong to Medford, signed
up the following obligation and
elected officers for the coming year.
For Active Members.
"Acknowledging the Universal
Fatherhood of God, indorsing the
life of Jesus and accepting His
teachings as the only perfect Code
of morals, I hereby pledge niy sup-
port to every effort of this organi-
For Associate Members.
"I hereby approve the policy and
work of (naming the organization,)
and pledge it my support."
It was a big Sunday in Medford,
and the "biggest pledge man ever
put his signature to" said President
Frank G. Walling prior to securing
signatures. The Constitution was
ably drafted under the guidance of
Henry M. Brewer, former member
of the Oklahoma Territorial Legis
lature, and was presented and read
by him, after which it was adopted
without amendment or a "strike.'
The Preamble of the document is
indeliably written, and punctuated
with all that is grand and good, and
has the marks of a genius and the
meaning of a mind like Webster,
that every lover of freedom and pat-
riotism would remove his hat to
The Medford Mens' Club (we will
call it for want of a better name,)
was organized for the purpose of
drawing men in closer union and
harmony with each other, to the
end factions and strife may become
a fading flower as the present
generation moves and advances to-
ward the setting sun of their life's
Journey among their fellow men.
Every act, whether for good or bad,
hatches in some person's brain and
the press would be neglecting its
duty to the outside world, should it
not record the name of the mover
of the Medford organization. Mr. Wal
ling took the initiative and has guid-
ed the ship from the docks to the
fathomless deep beyond the shore,
and with the standing army C. T.
Frack raised for him Sunday after-
noon, plenty of life boats are pro-
vided for, so no member be he ac-
tive or associate need sink unless
through his own motive by jumping
overboard and breaking away from
his associates. The organization will
be useful to all men; to the learned,
because it will afford them an oppor-
tunity of exercising their talents up-
on subject eminently v/orthy of at-
tention; to the illiterate, because it
affords them important instruction ;
to the young, because it presents
them with salutary precepts and
good examples, and accustomes them
to a proper mode of living; to the
man of the world it will furnish and
supply him with noble and useful
recreation; to the worthy man in
misfortune, to whom it gives assist-
ance; to the affliected and those
with trouble, upon whom it lavishes
consolation. Why isn't a body of
men of this character a good thing
The Articles of Association.
For the purpose of establishing a
closer relationship with and among
ourselves to the end ,that we may
harmoniously and with concerted
effort advance the principles and
incalcate in the minds of men the
precepts of Him, whose mission on
earth was to teach "Peace and Good
Will" to men; That we may succeed
in perfecting an organization, the in-
fluence of which wherever extended
may tend to the upbuilding of char
acter, the elimination of selfishness
and the broadening of the minds of
men, that they may by their daily
walk glorify the work of the Giver
of all good, we do ordain and adopt
the following rules of govern our

County papers throughout the
United States are printing what Is
alleged to be a letter wrltea by
Christ, in this letter was an Injunc-

There was likewise a promise that

to print this letter, so If It will re-

one, here It Is:
According to the history of the
letter it was written by Christ just
after the cruclflctlon, signed by the
Angel Gabriel ninty-nlne years after
the Savior's birth and presumably
deposited by him under a stonQ at
the foot of the cross.
