CLEANING PRACTICAL LOVE SEGRETARY FILES TO OFFER MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL HIS ANNUAL REPORT OUT SICKLY TREES Mrs. Housekeeper Critic Says Time Has. Come to For net the Isms and Pay More At tention to Practical Humanity. JujJgd.IInnnn 6ioko Tuosday night aim opera houso on tho subject of rvnitr upon its buck the same old most ..attentive audience of the rep resentative, people of Medford. Tho nwlfcnco was in a largo part made up of people who appreciate tho good that is boing done by' Christian Science, and wore desirous of learn ing moro of its fundamental prin ciples. Judgo Ilanna was intro duced to tho audience by Porter J. Noff in a very pleasing and appro printo mnnncr. Tho judgo is i gen tleman of fino address, and, Ave may oayj an orator of tho now school, whose stylo of speech is rather of the conversational than tho sensa tional omot'vonalism of tho past do cado. Tho discourse seemed (o bo directed mostly to tho believers in orthodox Christianity, with an ap parent desire to reconoilo tho Chris tian Science doctrine with that of othor doctrinal beliefs. Tho truth-, scokor who went there, frco from previous convictions, wns furnished with but scant food for thought. Tho discourso was almost'entiroly a ploa for tho belief in tho inspiration of tho Scriptures, and n dosiro to mako them fit Christian Science; in other words, tho judgo scorned to sny, "I wish to present to you a boliof which will in no vny conflict with any be lief that you may hav? in orthodox Christianity." It is nn undoniahlo truth that Christian Science owes its growth and popularity to tho fact that it embodies tho few simplo essentials t might by Jesus Christ, namely, leni porato living, right thinking, a heart free from ninlieo and rovengc, forgiv ing in spirit, loving your follow -man, novor giving away to angor, and thinking kindly of those who oHlioiso you. All this Christian' Scionco teaches, and in nddilion it also toaches ns to put nsido fear, to lioliovo and hold fast to tho boliof that health and not sickness is, and should be, tho natural condition of num. Thesobeautiful boliofs mako 'for tho World's bettormont, and bo it said to tho ovorlasting orodit of Mm. Eddy ,lhnt sho has turned tho chan nel of human thought toward life instead' of .death. Tho world, is ready for this now doolrino of hni and life. Tho Kast is crimson with i Iho dawning of a bettor day. This century wants tho ognn principle of tho Maslor's teachings, unmixed with dogmas, isms, doctrines and u p'orstilions. When Christian Science has so much that is good and whole some in it, why send spoakors about tlo country trying to prove a boliof m tho Trinity and insisting upon nr iiceeplniiee of their particular con struction of tho SoWptuios? What good to tho world is Mrs. Eddy's koy to tho Scripture, for conturios and centuries wo liavo had koys, and (hoy luuVngvur unlocked ono fiinglo trutli,"bul, on (ho contrary, tliov ftte"lis 'turned tho ! holt upon human irons; iiiey arorespousihio for BY ED ANDREWS.

They have fin ished cleaning up Ashland nnd Talent and Phoenix and aro in Jacksonville at present. Medford is post on tho list. The work is being done in a thorough manner, something "after tho mnnnor in which tho valloy of the Shenandoah was "cleaned up" by Sheridan. "Yes, wo cleaned up the town or chards as far as wo have gone," said Professor O'Gara, "ahd while tho cleaning up whs thorough in every case, tho job wns not always what you might term a neat ono." The n'bovo statement should bo food for reflection for citizens of Medford. If tho property owner knows that the trees on his-property ni-o infected it will save him trouble and perhaps expense in cleaning up aftor the inspectors to see to tho re moving of the trees. The inspectois nro not arbitrary in the methods, but they will insist thnt the infected trees be destroyed, nnd are bound by their offico to see Hint the work is carried out. Attorney Robert G.
