SUBOCUIPTI ON HATES: .....$5.90 One to with br nuUI or currier.... .60 CONTINUE THE CAMPAIGN. State Horticultural Commissioner Carson voices the opinion of every progressive citizen in his desire Iliac ihe county court of Jackson county make ample appropria tion to continue the fight against orchard pests and ren der Professor O'Gara all possible assistance in the onm pnign to clean up the orchards. ilr. Carson hits the nail on the head when he says: "The fruit industry of Jackson county is now lo largo to he abandoned, and a policy of economy is equal to a virtual abandonment of the orchards unless every pear blight germ in the county is destroyed." It is inconceivable that the county commissioners will not heed the demands of the county's principal industry and furnish all the funds needed. In this connexion, a special levy for this purpose would be good policy. Professor O'Gara 's campaign against blight may be compared to the government's campaign against bubonic plague in San Francisco. It is thorough and . weeping i and. only by such a campaign can a plague, whether itj threatens humanity or orchards, be stamped out. The first cost will necessarily be heavy, but the end justifies dry expenditure, for the warfare has been so Successful up to date as to prove the the fact that blight in the Rogue River valley can, be controled and probably oliiiva:ed. CO-OPERATION ESSENTIAL. The State Horticultural society has been regarded lo cally and with some grounds as a Hood River and "Yil lamette valley annex. Hence the Rogue River growers have been conspicuous by their absence. The time has come, however, when Rogue River should participate in the proceedings of every horticultural gath ering in the entire west, and exhibit at every fruit show. Tlie Rogue River valley has the largest planted orchard I area of any section of Oregon, and its co-operation is essen- tial to the complete success of the industiy. Oregon can-1 not afford to ignore the Rogue River, nor the Rogue River Oregon. " ' As the banner pear section of the northwest, and of the nation, and as the producer of the finest apples grown, ! T" T- I V it. 1 1 1 -!' jxogue itiver growers must neucerortn rane advantage 01 every opportunity to push their fruit and advertise their products. Self interest, if nothing else, demands it. Attention is called to the. letter published elsewhere from President Atwell of the State Horticultural society, inviting the co-operation of Rogue River valley growers, and it' is to be hoped that local orchardists will respond, and make the society what it should be, representative of the entire state, thus securing publicity for its greatest mnt belt.

A public official that renders faithful, efficient service for his constituents, and sacrifices many hours of his time for the public good without a penny of recompense is rarety in any city. When with faithfulness is combined progressiveness and alertness for public good, one has found nearly the ideal public servant let his personality be what it may. Medford has been fortunate during the past year in having this type of men in office. For almost the first time, complete harmony has reigned in the city adminis tration, with the result that an enormous amount of work has been accomplished, and a program of public improve ment been carried out never before attempted m a city the size of Medford. For the good of the city in general it is to- be hoped that the present councilmen will be unanimously re-elected, that no chance may be taken of introducing an element of discord, or of blocking the wheels of progress. It will be hard to explain the candidacy of opponents. if any there be.

Hearing as sho thought tho footsteps of her favorite, the mother called out, "Is that you, darling?" She reecived tho reply, "No, mother, it's only me." In our Heavenly Father's family, dear children, thoro is no such thing ns favoritism; and when God told his angel to say to tho shepherds, on the first Christmas morning, "Unto you is born this day, in tho city of David, a Saviour, which is Christ tho Lord," IIo meant that joyful message to sound all down tho ages until reached your ears. IIo ia your bauviouB, wnolJy yours, just as much as if there were no one elso in all the world. This should make you very, vory happy, and joyful; for uo is your nest uanstmas jprt.
