Seniors Enjoy April Fool.
The seniors indulged in the pleas
ures of the day yesterday, when the
class came to school dressed in their
Sunday . best . and .all . wearing .high
banquet collars. When about time
for' the last tap of the bell all filed
in the door, where they were greeted
by Professor Moore in his usual
cheery manner and instructed to go
to class room No. 10, where the real
joke was sprung. What followed we
cannot say, but we do know that they
seemed to have had a mighty good
time at Bowles' shop and passed
away a few minutes munching deli
cacies, after which they marched
back to the school house and resumed
their studies. However, some of the
boys had mysteriously lost some of
their ballroom attire, especially Les
ter Burdic, Jr., who by some hook ro
crook had sneaked his dad's swallow
tail out the kitchen door and ap
peared in all his glory, to the edifi
cation and enjoyment of the rest.
The ladies of the local W. C. T. U
met in the library parlor Tuesday,
the 31st, in commemoration of the
life as well as the death of our be
loved state president, Mrs. Edith Hill
Booker, who passed away at her home
in Portland Saturday, the 2Sth.
Her's was a life of consecration to
the work taken up, and we mourn
that she should be thus early taken
We find that Mrs. Bert Greer was
once a schoolmate of Mrs. Booker
and speaks of her ouly in highest
terms, as does also Mrs. Woodward
of Grant street, who at one time was
a member of her congregation. She
was present when Mrs. Booker was
ordained to the Baptist ministry. In
Pittsburg, Kan. Because of her
beautiful Christian life, divinely led.
her congregation grew until it often
became necessary to move into larger
churches. About the year 1898 the
Baptists built a fine edifice more
suited to accommodate the people.
Her lecture, "The Burning Gas Well
of Kansas," Is considered, by those
who heard It, one of the best ever
given on tho coast.
We, as co-workers, will ever cher
ish the memory of our beloved leuder,
and will endeavor to carry on the
work she planned with such prayerful
energy. MRS. ASHCR AFT, Pres.
MRS. GUILEV. Sec. .
Springs as Seen
In a letter to Mrs. Yockey, under
date of March 27, Mrs. Dr. Mattle B.
Shaw writes as follows:
"I think the best proposition is to
make a health resort town of Ash
land, and use those springs."
When it Is remembered that Mrs.
Dr. Shaw took a leading part in the
recent suffrage agitation here, being
president of the association, and
since then, has spent a year In Europe,
traveling and studying, having visited
most of the leading cities there, as
well as spent much time in Canada
and New York, and other eastern
points, her opinion should have no
little weight with the voters of this

April Fool Party.
A cotton, cork-coated, sour-dough
April Fool contest party was held at
422 Magnolia Boulevard Wednesday,
April 1, About seventy-five ladies
responded to the following invita
tion: "Three April Fools will be on guard
at 422 Magnolia Boulevard.
Mrs. C. H. VaupeU.Mrs. H. O. Froli
bach, Mrs. C. F. Shepherd.
2:30 P. M."
Tromptly at 2:30 the guests began
to arrive, and upon entering the re
ception hall were ushered under a
banner bearing the inscription, "All
Fools' day." Before participating in
the festivities each guest was re
quired to don a lavender fool's cap.
This badge entitled all present to en
ter the contest In the following
The first was called "The cotton
ball game." Thirty of the most sus
ceptible ladies present, fifteen on
each side, were chosen to play. , It
certainly was a '-'far-reaching" con
test, inasmuch as the baskets contain
ing the cotton balls had been re
moved as soon as all the contestants'
eyes were closed, and they were left
clawing the air and reuching far and
wide and yelling frantically, "Pass up
the ball, Casey." This little April
fool stuut afforded much amusement
to the audience, and the contestants,
after getting their eyes opened, were
willing to acknowledge it was surely
Game No. 2 was a test of "wireless
mental telepathy." From this game
all narrow-chested "one-lungers"
were barred. Twelve handsome Ama
zons with powerful lung capacity
were placed behind a muslin screen
and required by the sense of touch
and mental suggestion from the one
passing the article to enable the one
at the other end of the line to
promptly announce the name of the
article. To show how true to name,
and how perfectly this can be done,
a common housefly that was started
at the north end, by the time it
reached the southern was pronounced
the American eagle bound for Mexico,
and a dentist's hand mirror was tak
en for a currycomb.
A guessing contest taken from
thirty-seven celebrated paintings was
introduced to test culture and knowl
edge of paintings. One painting la
beled "Assorted Liqours" (lickers)
was the subject of much discussion
and the correct answer was finally
given by a wise mother who had
raised a large family of boys, whose
motto had always been "Spare the
rod and spoil the child," said it sure
ly must be whip, switch and slipper.
There were six successful contestants,
Mrs. Pell, Mrs. Cunningham, Mrs.
Nlms, Mrs. Dean, Mrs. M. E. Briggs
and Mrs. Summers.
The prize was an artistic box of
assorted chocolates prepared by one
of our leading confectioners, and
Mrs. Cunningham, who drew the
prize, being of a very liberal temper
ament, passed the box to each gum,
who partook generously, and a won
derful "chewing contest" Immediate
ly took place, and such a mixture ot
chocolate, cotton, putty, sour dough
and cork, well mixed with tongue and
teeth, has never been equaled in Ash
land. White and lavender flowers were
the decorations. Refreshments of
white and lavender ice cream, cake
and coffee were served.

Idaho are in the city and will try out
our climate having rented a cottage
on First avenue. They have been to
San Diego for the winter but report
it too hot there for them at this time
of year. They have been through
Ashland three times and say they al
ways found the weather fine and
finally decided to stay a while. They
are looking for a new home. Mr.
Bartley Is an attorney but has for
some years devoted his time to the
raising of thoroughbred Jersey cattle
on his ranches, near Moscow. He
states that he will follow this linn of
activity if he locates here, but sug
gests that land adjacent to Ashland
Is held too high for such purposes.
Unfortunately there Is too much truth
In this assertion.
With mineral Wells
We have written considerable com
paring our possibilities with Mineral
Wells, Texas. We have done this be
cause,, the writer has visited Mineral
Wells and is familiar, by his own ob
servation, with the waters and con
ditions surrounding that resort in
comparison with the natural resort
assets about Ashland. Mineral Wells
is not half so attractive as Ashland,
either from the standpoint of climate,
scenic aspect, medicinal water value,
soil, or railroad and auto traffic fa
cilities. In fact, It is not to be com
pared to Ashland in attractiveness.
Notwithstanding that, the railroad
entering Mineral Wells shows that
150,000 tickets were checked off at
that point last year. If the 150,000
tourists stopping there left an aver
age of ten dollars each, the gain to
Mineral Wells, directly from the tour
ist crop, amounted to $1,500,000 last
year. When we consider that the
Rogue River Valley fruit crop last
year marketed for about that sum,
we can get some idea of the future
possibilities for Ashland. That is
what we must now carefully consider,
for we are about to invest a large
sum of money in an enterprise of the
same kind. Mineral Wells is a dry
town, as is 90 per cent of the water
ing resorts of America.
"Home Folk" Should
Send in Names
People from all parts of the coun
try are constantly stopping off at
Ashland to look over our city and
country. There are former residents
of every state in the Union and many
places in Canada residing in Ashland
and vicinity. The Commercial Club
desires to obtain the names and ad
dresses and the places of former resi
dence of all our people, both in Ash
land and the surrounding country, in
order ' when strangers come here it
may be able to refer them, if possi
ble, to some one from their own lo
cality back home, and thus give them
a warmer welcome. Will you call at
the Commercial Club rooms and leave
your name and address and place of
former residence or fill out and mail
the Commercial Club the form below?
