The Bullis street car made its first move this afternoon and acted just like a city car and nearly scared a country horse to death. The car ran the terminal to Main and Bartlett, and then backed up. A few trial trips will be made this afternoon, and Sunday service put into effect tomorrow.

J.S. Howard, father of Medford, sat on a box in front of the Economy Meat Market and watched with reminiscent eyes the first trolley in Jackson County. He will ride on the first trip. "Thirty years ago I cooked beans on the spot where that car now stands," the pioneer said. "Then I little thought I would ever see a street car there."

The street car is a source of great interest to the verable pioneer. A large crowd watched the first move.


Moose of Southern Oregon celebrated Friday night in grand style with a parade, banquet, dance and initiation of 130 new candidates at the Nat. Over 700 Moose from Gold Hill, Grants Pass, Ashland, Roseburg and other points were in attendance and the festivities lasted until a late hour this morning, when the three special trains that brought the visitors returned home. It was one of the most successful lodge affairs ever held in Southern Oregon. The feature of the parade was an electric lighted Moose head.

Where is the Best Placeto Buy Seeds?

Why Broadley's of course, the only place in Southern Oregon where you can get Burpee's Seeds and Mulford's Nitrogerm. He has nearly 30 years experience in handling and growing seeds and customers will have the benefit of his experience. It is only a few steps from Main Street and it will certainly pay you to take a few extra steps to Broadley's, where you can get everything for the garden. Use Broadley's Nitrogerm in your legume crops. Burpee's Spence Sweet Peas have no equal and you have about 40 of the very best varieties to choose from. If you don't see what you want just ask for it.
