The MarshfleM Mail of a recent
. InfoiPiatlon is aj. hand which may
be satd to be authentic that the
Southern Pacific railroad eompnny
will announce the construction of the
Drain railroad into Coos Buy. The
announcement will not come ir.i med
iately, It Is said, hut the date for the
same is understood to be about KVb
ruary first. The history of the Drain
route is well known lo all on Coos
May who have been residents more
than three yKirs. but newcomers are
not so well acquainted with the de
tails. In 1900 the- company an
noinced that it would build a branch
road from Drain and the samo sum
mer assembled great quantities of
rails, bridge material and other rail
road supplies, at Drain, and also at
ScottNbui'K, the head of navigation
on the Umpqua river, along which
the route was surveyed.
A great deal of grading, clearing
right of way, and tunnel work waa
done in the Benson of 1 9 JO but the
work was stopped with the exception
of tunnel boring that winter and was
The rails and other material as
sembled at Drain wev-i romovtd, tlv
'camps wen? disbanded and the Iprjre
juantity of cement that was talMi
, to Scottsburg have been slowly yoing
t out of the country. The enmpnay
j made no promises but let the whole
thing drop and the people of Coos
i Bay had no hope of a railroad, until
J this summer when the Coos Hay, Ore
, gon and Idaho people got busy and
j started an actual survey from this
i section to the Interior. Ever since,
I that survey was launched, the South-
orn Pacific people have shown con
siderable interest in the Coos Bay
railroad situation, and now there are
two officials-of that company in the
Coos Bay country, though their iden
tity is not known.
What these men are here for is
of course a matter of conjecture, but
those who view things from a stand
point of understanding are satisfied
that these officials are on the ground
for the purpose of sizing up the re
sources of the country and ma':lng a
report to the company that will show
whit mav be actually expected of
this section in the way of frelgh and
It is further believed that thev are
probably under orders to look Into
the Coos Bay, Oregon and Idaho rail
road situation and report the attitude
of the people of this section towards
And here comes In the position
that many are taking In the present
situation. It Is said that the South
ern Pacific quit work on the Coos
Bay line and left the country with
out a railroad after havlrg promised
relief in that way. It is now statr-d
that the peojple should stay by the
Cor-s flay, Oregon and Idaho people
under every circumstance that may
arise; if the Southern Pacific wishes
to build that every resident of the
country should encourage the lea
in every way with this exception: that
the Coos Bay, Oregon and Idaho peo
ple should retain the confidence and
good will of every citizen of Coos
county and there should be no
change of faith. It is plain to every
thinking man tH&t the only thing
which has caused any revival of In
terest In the Southern Paclfis people
in the Coos Bay railroad situation Is
the activity of the Haines survey,
and therefore the local people are
confronted with the Imperative de
mand Ihat they, stay by the new rail
road project and to the end If any
nope for a railroad Is to be expected.
The Snuth'-rn Pacific has footed us
once, but a repetition Is out of the
question. Such is the feeling among
those who are talking about the hope
of a rallrond.

Tho farmers of North Myrtle have
a project by which they expect to
divert the waters of the creek from
the channel into a dllc.h for Irriga
tion purposes. The ditch will be con
structed from a point above W. h.
Burks placo down to tho Jones school
house and will carry enough wnter.
to Irrigate all the land on Ub course.
This Is the best move made around
here In recent years as it will not only
mean wealth to the men interested,
but It will demonstrate the groat pos
blblllties open to farmers along our
Save tho very best hny for the
horses. They are dainty feeders and
are often sorlously Injured by being
forced to eat musty and rusly liny.
As the long as the mare's owner
asks only bIzo and weight nnd fat In
the stallion he ues, just bo long will
he get that and that only.
Don't make the mistake of starv
ing "toughness" Into the colt this
winter. A spring colt will need lots
of exercise but It demands good shel
ter and care.
A fast walking teum Is consider
ably more valuuble on the fai-m than
one with a slow, loggy gait. Action
and vigor In tho Blre should be
sought If It Is to be reasonably ex
pected In tho offspring.
Many good coltB are doomed to
the misfit classes because they weie
underfed wh.-n they were young. $75
to $100 difference In price at the
market Is lost through the false econ
omy of saving a few bushels of grain.
The young colts should be shel
tered from the cold fall rains and
early winter sleet storms. They need
this pronrtion more than they will
In the clear cold of mld-wlnter.
Many ailments which horses are
affllcK-d with are Inherited from the
parents. Avoid using a stallion that
shows any hereditary unsoundness.
if a farmer gets top prices for the
colts he puts upon the market he
must rati- ti them Just as ho would
a hog. The market demands this
and the farmer should cater to It.
Dealers make good profits In buying
horses In thin or ordinary condition
and fattening them.
