    The real novelties and real songs go to the Grand.

*     *     *
    The moving pictures at the Grand are clear and brilliant, presenting the latest films perfectly and steady, and do not tire the eyes.

*     *     *
    The Grand is giving an entertainment that meets the approval of the amusement-loving public--it gives them the cream of the film world.

    The biggest business in the history of the Grand is being done every night. People are turned away at every performance. The house is going to be enlarged to accommodate the crowd.

    Dr. F. C. Page, owner of the Grand Theater building, is having it remodeled and made up-to-date. When finished it will be occupied by the Fouts grocery, who will move from their present location.

    C. H. Symcox, who, as was reported exclusively in The Morning Mail of yesterday, purchased an orchard tract near Central Point Tuesday through the real estate firm of Cusick, Myers & Sharpe at a cost of $15,000, again testified yesterday to his faith in Medford by purchasing the Wallace Woods building on East Main Street, at a cost of $10,000. The structure, which was formerly known as the Grand Theater building, was sold by White & Trowbridge, the real estate men.
