The five weeks' revival services at the Christian church closed Sunday night and Evangelist Putman and singing evangelist and personal worker Miss Egbert go to Grants Pass today, where they begin services tonight.

The meetings here were very successful and were a great spiritual uplift to the church. There were 14 additions to the church on Sunday and 78 in all.

D.D. Boyle, who resigned his patorate here owing to ill health and leaves Thursday for Petaluma, Calif., preaches his farewell sermon tonight and a good attendance is requested. There will be a reception to the new members and a farewell reception for Mr. Boyle Tuesday evening.


The case of Jackson County vs. the City of Ashland will be argued before the supreme court at Salem Wednesday, City Attorney Moore of Ashland and attorney A.E. Reames of this city appearing for Ashland and attorneys Neff and Kelly appearing for the county. The suit was brought to compel Ashland to pay its share of the road tax. Judge Calkins sustained their appeal, which was then taken to the higher court.


A.G. Fuller, convicted of a statutory crime against Beatrice Kavanaugh, age 13 years, last Friday was sentenced to serve from three to 20 years in the state prison by Judge F.M. Calkins of the circuit court. Fuller will probably be taken to Salem this week. Attorney Canton, who defended him, said this morning his client would be liberated in two months.

Fuller made a statement to the court in reply to the query if he had anything to say. He said he felt some of the jurors were prejudiced and that he might be able to put a different light on some of the damaging evidence. He also said his trial had been fair. His attorney asked the court for leniency in a short address.
