That is just what E. C. Ireland
has done with the Roanoke addition
to Medford. Eighteen months ago he
purchased this property, moro fa
miliarly, known as the Fred M. Cook
tract, for $3000. The tract was cut
tip into 30 lots and called the Roan
oke addition. Recently this addition
was taken into tho city limits and,
bordering as it does on West Main
street, has now, or soon will have,
a paved street in front of it and city
light and water.
Charles IJnrgess evidently thought
it desirable proporty, for ho has pur
chased the entire addition for $10,-000.

tho question of tips to the waiters

Many of them have moro monoy than
brains nnd nro perfectly ablo to pay

discussion of tho subject or any at

business in a turmoil.

KLAMATH FALLS, Nov. 5. The
city dads are after the reclamation
officinls with a big stick, and are
determined to have tho old disease
breeding Ankcny cannljabolisbod or
know the reason why. The council
has been hammering, at the govern
ment officinls bore for somo months
to got something done to abate this
nuisnncc, but to date nothing defi
nite has, been accomplished. Last
night tho report of A. Castel, S. T.
Summers and Marion Hnnks, who
had been appointed by t.bo council to
make a thorough investigation of the
cnnnl with the view to determine if it
is responsible for tlio unhenlthy con
dition of tho town, was received and
unanimously adopted by tho dads.
The report stated that tho canal is
in a deplorable state of filth, nnd
that the honltb of tho entire town wns
menaced therqby, and that something
should be done nt onco to rid the
town of this filth. Just what steps
the reclamation officials will tako i'.i
the matter remains to bo seon, but
in tho fnco of tho fact that this
canal has been condemned by City
Health Officor Hamilton and now by
a special committee from the council,,
it is likely that pressure will bo
brought to boar on those in powor to
remedy this evil.
Great Scarcity of Houses for Rent
ing Purposes in Central Point
Many More Are
WALKER BUYS MORE LAND
IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
CENTRAL POINT, Nov. 5. (Spc
cial.) There is a great scarcity of
houses for renting purposes in tlrn
city, and tho situation seems to grow
worse every day. New peopla are
arriving constantly, and when thoy
begin to look around for a suitable
residence they are confronted with
the fact that there arc no houses to
rent. One agent alone has over 2o
houses for rent, and ovary one of
them is engaged. Whilo this speaks
woll for the growing condition of
Central Point, yet it will soon begin
to have its bnd effects, as the new
arrivals, if thoy cannot find suitable
quarters here, will go where thoy can.
It looks like a cbanco for a good in
vestment for somo capitalist to
build more houses in this city.
