pOH several days past mysterious
pasteboard cards about two
inches wide and two feet In length
liavo been making their appearance
around Marshfleld and North Bend.
On tho cards are printed the words,
"It Will Bo Built." No ostentation
marked the Initial appearance of tho
cards; fow peoplo knew tho meaning
of tho Inscription on the long narrow
pasteboard when first they began to
make their appearance In store and
olllco windows. Inquiry developed

tho Coos-Douglas electric railroad.
Soon everybody came to know this
and gradually tho first feelings of
surprisO and curiosity died away Into
