If he is of the first class, he shows that he prefers the good (?) old days when the town was a sleepy, obscure village, not so much as a fly speck on the map of Oregon, without a dollar of indebt edness, a decent sidewalk, a brick building, a bank, a com- THE NEW YEAR'S EDITION HP HE Mail Tribune will print only as many copies o -I New Year's Homeseeker's edition as are order advance. It is proposed to print an edition of 10,000, but the number may be greater. The edition will be illustrated by new cuts of the Spo kane apple exhibits and of Medford and the Rogue River valley. It will contain a comprehensive account of the material progress made during tho year by Medford, Ash land, Central Pomt, Gold Hill, Eagle Point, Jacksonville, Phoenix, Talent," and other sections of the valley, and the resources. No display advertising will be received, for the ITome seckers' section. A PLEA FOR JUVENILE BOOKS ing pictures.

To ono who already posses a ko dak, supplies or something in tho line of recent conveniences would prove n most woloomo gift. Velox, azo and folio papers are most used, nn nuto-time plate for all kodak shutters, a new tripod or a develop ing tank would asist the amateur to i do good work and plense him because the tfft would show a special under standing of hi stnstes.

IOC If he belongs to the lat ter class, he shows that he is dishonest to the extent of being willing to accept indirect benefits from an institu tion which he is too penurious to support. It may be admitted that all of tho benefits a newspaper brings to its advertisers aro not direct ones, but the indi rect benefits are of sufficient importance to every busi ness man and property owner as to place a moral obliga tion on them to do something towards the paper's support, 'and especially is this true of men who encouraged the es tablishment of a newspaper and then quietly shirked the responsibility or supporting it.
