pers Exerting Its Influence in Be
half of Proposed Division of
The Salem Journal believes in small
er counties for Oregon as well as small
er farms, and purposes lending its
influence in this direction. In an edi
torial it promises to support the Nes
mith county movement, an undertaking
that cannot fail to meet with apprecia
tion by the people who are striving to
better their condition. Here is the ar
ticle referred to: .
“Of course there are interests that
think they are hurt every time a new
county is created. But the hurt is im
aginary and the whole state would be
benefitted by ten new counties. Now
it is in the cards to create a new county
to be called Nesmith around Cottage
Grove. There are the usual howls from
Douglas and wails from Lane over the
proposition. We have heard these wails
and howls every time the past twenty
years when a new county was borned.
We have seen Lincoln, Wheeler, and
Hood River brought into existence with
all attending pangs of parturition. We
have advocated the creation of every
new county and shall do all in our pow
er to have Nesmith county organized.
Lane and Douglas can spare the terri
tory and they are still big enough .to
make several more good counties. The
name'Nesmith is providential, and-the"
new county cannot be stopped and
everybody might as well get in line.”
AN ATTRACTIVE DISPLAY.
Typical Logging Scene Arranged by
One of the most attractive show-win
dow displays seen in Cottage Grove for
many moons was that of the Burkhold
er-Woods company, -arranged especially
to attract attention of lumbermen, of
which there are not a few in this neck-
o’-the-woods. It was a typical logging
camp and nothing in connection there
with appeared to be missing. A minia
ture ox-team, with a mule in the lead,
was employed in skidding a huge log,
while in the distance was the cook
camp with its attendant washing hung
on a line stretched from convenient
trees, and a ferocious bull-dog chained,
hard by. Still beyond were horses
grazing in an enclosed pasture, and
scattered about here and there were
implements used in logging operations,
and carried by the firm. The window
attracted much attention. It was real
ly a meritorious display, and reflected
credit upon the man who dresssed the
Thinks Well of The Sentinel.
The Sentinel has received many com
plimentary communications concerning
its publication, but the following from
British Columbia is among the most
appreicated: “The Cottage Grove Sen
tinel : Received a stray copy of The
Sentinel a few days ago, and it certain
ly is a credit to you. The people of
Cottage Grove and Lane county ought
to congratulate themselves on having
a first-class, clean, newsy, up-to-date
newspaper. The merchants certainly
appreciate it, judging from the way
they advertise. Inclosed find $1, for
which please send me The Sentinel for
six months. I have no American money
or would send it. Nor is there a post-
office within twelve miles of here.
Wishing you all kinds of success in

’Tis aNeat Playhouse.
The Star Theatre is attracting large
audiences to every performance, and is
striving to please its patrons. The
theatre is conducted along modern lines,
everything being new throughout, and
is it safe to say that there is not a
neater house of entertainment in this
valley. It is the ambition of the man
agement to provide the people of Cot
tage Grove with a picture show of high
character; one that will educate as
well as entertain. Great care is taken
in the selection of pictures.
Road Is Now Open.
The landslide on the Oregon & South
eastern road was removed on Monday,
after several days’ work, and traffic re
sumed to Disston. Considerable freight
for the mines had accumulated. The
railway company sluiced the mud from
its track, using water from a nearby
creek for the purpose.

CHRISTIAN CHURCH, MONDAY DEC. 6
» 88288 EE FRANCIS LYBARGER delivers his “How
SIC 8 to be Happy, ,” not a sunshine lecture, but one on
S Hh the
1 of £L happiness. Many regard this as his best
production, for it is filled with “worldly wisdom.”
It is not a “sunshine lecture, but a search after the Philosophy
of right living. Is is one lecture that has the courage to face
the facts, to see things as they are. It shows not only the right
of happiness and duty of happiness, but the ways of happiness.
XIMENES’ STATUETTE OF PRESIDENT TAFT.
President Taft recently received from Signor Ettore Xlmenes, the great
sculptor of Italy, this statuette In bronze of the president modeled from life.
Mr. Taft accepted the gift and wrote a letter to the famous sculptor in which
he said that he not only appreciated the courtesy, but cherished the statue
as a work of art and a token of Italy’s good will toward America.
HOW TO BE HAPPY.
Lecturer Lybarger Will Discuss This
Subject Monday Night,
On Monday evening next, at the
Christian church, Lee Francis Lybar
ger will lecture on “How to Be Hap
py,” the entertainment being under
the auspices of the Cottage Grove Ly
ceum Course. Of Mr. Lybarger it is
said that he is an orator of marked
ability, and his purpose is to change
the habits^ conduct and condition of
men. But to do this, he must first as
lecturer—change thoughts, beliefs and
opinions. And then—as orator—he must
link the feelings, emotions and heart-
throbs of his hearers to the new beliefs
and convictions he has created, in order
that they may go forth and embody
these new convictions in life and action.
The lecturer appeals to the intellect,
the entertainer to the emotions. The
orator appeals to both. Being endowed
by nature with those traits and quali
ties which distinguished the world’s
great orators, Mr. Lybarger has ampli
fied these superior gifts by years of
culture and training. He has the mag
ical power of word-painting. He has
that rare endowment of imagination
which can portray characters, picture
scenes, vivify social forces and tenden
cies, and give even to abstract thought
“a local habitation and a name.”
COUNCIL MEETS MONDAY.
SEASON SEATS AT THE WAVE
Cottage Grove Local Is Continued to
A new time card went info effect on
the Southern Pacific last Sunday, since
when the train heretofore known as
the Cottage Grove local has continued
to Roseburg instead of tying up here.
This action takes the train crew away
from this city, and gives it to our neigh
bor on the south. The .running time of
the Cottage Grove local has also been
changed, going north from here at 4:02
p. m., instead“ of at 4:50, and south at
10:54, instead of at 10 :15. Number 19
and 20’s time has also been changed,
the former going south at 3:12; instead
of at 2:57, and the latter, going north
at 11:24 instead of at 11:32. With these
changes the management of the South
ern Pacific will be expected by the STILL WE GROW

CHANGES OF TIME.
Lighting Bill Due for Third Reading.
Other City Matters.
A regular session of the city council
will be held next Monday evening, when
considerable business will come before
the aldermanic body for consideration.
The lighting bill is due for a third read
ing, but inasmuch as a request to defer
action for thirty days has been made it
will probably be tabled for that period
at least. The matter of providing 150
copies of the city charter, under con
sideration for some time, will likely be
resurrected. There are only four cop
