ettes, 2 cigars, some cookies and can
dy. This they had hidden under n

They Got the Bacon
The owners of tho wrecked schoon
er Randolph are Will Guerin, Allen
Boico, John Hnynes, Ernest McCbn
.nell, of Langlois. The latter was
drowned in the wreck, Mrs. Captain
Anderson of Bandon and C. H. Cheev-
er of Langlois.
At the time of the wreck, the only
cargo the Randolph had aboard was
1000 lbs of bacon. When the tide be
came low enough beach combers were
quick to carry away the bacon. This
illustrates one way of "taking home
rangemcnts to let a contract for the
recovery of the gasoline engine from
the wreck. The boat is beyond sal
vage but the engine is new and pow
erful. We saw today some very fine speci
mens of both gold and platinum taken
from the C. C. Howell black sand
mines near Whisky Run. There was
about a teaspoon level full of clean
washed gold and twice as much platinum.
