TUTS MEDFORD MAIL TRIBUNE, MEDFORD, OREO ON, MONDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1909.
CONCERT IAS HIGH GRADE PERFQMIICE Local Operatic Stars Were Splendid in Their Several Parts and Much Appreciated. LONGER FRUIT SEASON HEREAFTER IN PORTLAND 1 The concert given Christmas night by the Medford band was a high Cold StoraQe Thoroughly Tested and Is Shown tt Be Great Success. Hereafter Portland will hnvo n much longer fruit season than dnr- .1ft nnrfommnnA from first to lnL S former years, says the Journal. tm, w r tU J Cold stornpo will be generally util given by tho band, tho second part being two vaudovillo sketches, two vocal selections by Henry Guuson and three scenes from Cavilleria Rusticaua. Tho numbers played by the band wore quito pretentious, two numbers being from Wagner operas and one grand selection from Meyer beers Hugonots. As n rule enter tainments given by local talent es cape without criticism, but the per formance of Christmas night is worthy of critical review. Chnrlcs Haxelrig, tho director, is a musician of undisputed merit, and in the Fortissoimo passages, espec ially noticeable in tho Tannehauser March, was all that could be desired, but a little more attention to the lighter effects would be an Improve ment. The personnel of the band la good, individually they arc good mu sicians. They play in tune, which is saying a good deal, bnt there was an absence of tho delicate shading which they frequently played u their outdoor concerts last summer. In fact, the program might bo some what improved by adding a littlo of Gounod and, Verdi. The Medford band must take its placo as tho first band in the state, and to do so means frequent and rigid rehearsals, and tho citizens should help to support this organization, for it is one of Mcdford's assets. Walters and Claremont. The musical sketch by Walters and Claramont was a splendid success. Walters is really a great tenor, and it is safe to say that when he takes the road, as he expects to in the near future, for a vaudeville tour, thero will bo no such tenor on the vaude ville stage. Miss Clarcmont is pret ty and vivacious and acts well. In comparing Walters with the tenors now on teh American stage, I think it is safe to say that he has no su perior as a dramatic tenor. He per haps lacks the delicate shading of Caruso and other famous operatic stars, but in a dramatic climax where it requires voice and intensity of emotion, theer is none of them got Walters beaten. A very pleasing sketch was ren dered by Haight and Dean, entitled "A Misfit Meeting." Both Mr. Haight and wife are' exceptionally good actors. They handle their com edy in a manner that never gives offense. They kcyt the audience in a roar of laughter from first to last and by the way, Mr. Haight is also a Medfordite, and the owner of a ranch out near the 401. We don't have to go outside of Medford for anything in the way of talent. Mr. naight is living in Medford at tho preesnt time ,nnd Mrs. Height's mother is a member of their family. Mrs. Taylor is one of the veteran nctresses, having supported Boooth and' Barrett in tho old stock days. She has also played with Thomas Keen and John McCulough. Shells a well preserved lady and a most in teresting conservntionnlist. Mrs. Bertha Taylor is building nn nddition to her home. ' ized by botK fruit shippers n mission merchauts for tho saving of supplies that would otherwise be forced upon an overful and therefore unnpprcciativo market. In former seasons tho glut of fruit has been so complete nt times in the wholesale market that ninny tons havo annually gone to waste which could have been saved had proper fa cilitics been at hand. Portlnnd has several storage plants at this time and thero is talk of ad ditional plants being constructed if demand warrants. It has been found that fruit, ench as peaches, plums, carries And grapes can be kept ir. etorago until such a time as the de mand grows better. During the past week some peach es grown at Ashland were withdrawn fcom tho storage for the Christmas trade and were found to bo ia excel lent condition. A snort tune ago a prominent fruit dealer who has an orchard at Milwaukee, withdrew soni cherries and grapes from storaga, and the excellence of their quality was commented upon by the fruit trade in general. EVANS CREEK ITEMS. A big dance at Joshua Neatham- mer's Christmas eve. Friends of Mr, and Mrs. John Owens spent a pleasant evening en joying ino unnsimas tree at tneir placo, which was followed by a nice luncheon.

We want yon io Uink about a few facts regarding ulootriaity, which, wo believe, entitles it to your onrnost consideration. We .know that if jo once realise what electricity will do to make your home more homelike, more cheerful, more charming, you wil need no per suasion you will xnxUt on electrici ty.

Etaririo Uftfctfam In the Hm. A well lighted home dispels the gloom and invites hubby, nnd the grown-up boys and girls to fatay in evenings. Nothing conduces so much to cheerfulness and social congeniality no a brilliantly and pleasantly-lighted fireside. And nothing quite realizes that happy condition so consu mately as electric illumination. You may talk about other means of artificial light, but after all, the a happy, satisfied homo oirclo. If you want to drive your boys and girls out on the streets evenings give them a dimly, gloomily lighted home. If yon want to keep them in even ings give them- a pleasantly lighted home. Electricity plays it part, with no uncertain hand, in the welfare of our boys and girls. Bnt that isn't tho wholo story by any manner or means. Electric lighting in your home is neat, handsome, nnd clean. It dif fuses n stoady, even light, unaffected by draughts, and offering the easiest light, known, on the eye for reading. No shadows. Unlike all other lights, it casts no shadows, whatever, but sheds it bril lianoy in all directions, unimpeded by fixtures or brackets. No heat. And in the summer time, yon who havo folt the withering heat in the home, have not thought kindly of yonr gasoline or lamp light, which has seemed to join forces with the hot temeprntnre in an oifort to make life well nigh unbearable. Electric lighting instend of heating the house, gives you n cool, refresh ing luminosity that can be booh, not folt, that can be appreciated not condemned.
