FLOUISXCK. Or., May (Special.)
All the KiusKaw is in its glory to
night. Western Lane Covnty lias had
tu glimpse of, tli.- reality of whiich it
has dreamed for years. Young men
lipve grown up lmaring of the time
"when the railroad, cooties." when its
beaches, its inland mountain lakes, its
waterways, become the Summer resort
meccas of thousands.. They pictured
again -and again a tremendous com
ment in timber and dairy wealth
"when the railroad comes." Tho news
of promised construction thrilled, fear
of disappointment left when work
began bringing dollars and engineering
wonders. The process was slow, and
four years have passed.
Today the railroad "came," with a
heavy steol train, wnen a locomotive,
"like ttacy use on the main line," poked
Its nose into the Siuslaw timber,
crossed ami recrossed the mountain
Ktream and pushed its way miles past
Maplcton. further than any passenger
train has coma "The railroud" was
here, not a construction train, not a
lolling, cracking roadbed for minia
ture equipment, but a. real railroad.
It Ride I.Ike Main I.luc.
"It rides the same as the main line,
an all-water grade with but six-tenths
per cent at the tunnel," said W. H.
Jenkins, Southern Pacific general pas
"Jt is good for high-speed trains. 45
miles an hour or more," said Kngincor
Walter lavis, as he stood beside the
Atlantic type locomotive as the great
throne filed past at tho end of the
run this morning-.
Railroad construction crews exploded
charge after charge ot dynamite, whis
tles and sirens bhrieked, and the whole
valley echoed the celebration that
marked the meeting of rails and water,
S3 the SOO- Eugene excursionists hopped
from tho train at the end of the track
nil to a fleet of gaily decorated boats.
Procrvalon Moves Down Itlver,
The triumphal procession moved
down Ihe river unmuffled: explosive
speedboats snorted out ahead.; the band
played; the crowd was happy, and the
sounds were re-echoed by tbe ever
green, walls o the narrow valley,
.Ml Florence, dressed, in the American
flag, and its wonderful pink rhododen
drons, awaited the arrival of the fleet.
The noise of the welcome by all the
whistles on the river whh followed by
the military step of the Eugene Kadi
ators. led by the Eugene band of 30
pieces. The uniformed Eugene boost
ers made their first appearance In Lane
. County's sea coast town.
Hitch ia rrotramnr.
Florence acted as though it had been
through this thing all its life. There
was not a hitch in its programme. Its
-visitors were fed thousands of crabs
and clams, gallons of clam concomme,
hundreds of pounds ot fish and a dozen
other details all in an hour. A city
cafeteria hadn't a look-in. The line
moved down, starting with a 12-inch
iuslaw shingle and ending with a load
.too heavy for a woman to be allowed
to carry, as fast as it could come up.
One man dished up two whole crabs
at a time, another dished up clams, a
fifth threw on sandwiches and the six
teenth shook salt and pepper over the
whole load. The man behind the whole
was "Dad" Patterson, veteran Siuslaw
. cook, whose tools were shovels and
pitchforks working over vats large
. enough to creosote telephone poles, but
the feed was that o the Waldorf.
Once more the crowd was loaded
on to the boata and was headed ocean
ward. In an hour 1000 people were
spread out over five miles of sand
beach, presenting a picture for all
tho world like Coney Island with the
thermometer at 106.
.. Portland CyvlUt Yln.
A dozen unthrottled sputtering
motorcycles raced over a six-mile sand
beach and the crowd ran its hands
further into the sand. In the races
Bob Stevenson, of Portland, finished
first: Harold Waggoner, second, on an
Indian: C. A. JUig. third, on a Harley
Davidson. and J. X. Nyswander, fourth,
on a Michaelson. Eight other machines
The crowd was hardly back when
three speedboats snorted off on & four
mile course. Wigwam II, owned and
piloted by H. A. Starrctt, was an easy
first: William Yost, in a two-engine
mongrel that nearly drowned its driver
with a shower of water from its bow,

third. Starrett held the lead from the

Heal cannons roared, roman candlea
and skyrockets served as mortars and
floating pieces resembled the explosion
of mines. A grand ball followed.
The whole schedule is to be repeated
tomorrow for the arrival of the second
excursion train from Eugene bringing
an expected 1000 excursionists. The
programme called for only one bar
becue and one day's celebration, but
the committee was not satisfied. The
moving spirits in the huge celebration
were Dr. Charles Johnson. W. H
O'Kelley. Peter Rice, J. M. McKechnie
and G. G. Bushman.
The weather was ideal with a bright
sun following the arrival of excursion
boats. The whole was a tremendous
success. In yesterday's school fair,

Linn Judge Thinks Each Dis
trict Should Choose Day.
EXPECTED COST IS SMALL
Climatic and Local Conditions Con.
sidcrcd in Advocating New Plan.
School Children and Parents
Will Take Part.
ALBANY, Or., May 22. (Special.) A
new plan for volunteer road work has
been devised by D. is. McKnight, Coun
ty Judse of Linn County. Instead ot
observing state or county good roads
days the County Court here will en
deavor to have the observance of Com
munity Good Road days. The new plan
is expected to prove effective and re
sult in the completion ot considerable
road work at small cost.
The plan is to have each road dis
trict In the county set a best adapted
date on which to observe a good roads
day. The County Court will furnish
all necessary machinery for the work
and sei.d ample supplies of gravel or
crushed rock and other equipment into
the district so that it will be on band
for that day.
The Community Road day is expected
to prove much more successful than
one to be observed throughout the
county as a whole. This was illustrated
in the .State Good Roads day last
t'ouilitiona round I nfavorable.
In some parts of this county the
roads were too wet to work and be
cause of unusually late rains the
streams were- too high in most places
to permit convenience in securing
ijravel. Another advantage of the
Community Road day will be that road
building machinery can be shipped
from one district to another, so that
each district celebrating the day will
have ant abundance of equipment.
Judge McKnight plans to have the
school children, as well as their
parents, take part in the road work,
and expects to arrange to have them
take a leading part in building a short
stretch of road in front of the school
house which will be the headquarters
for the day.
Slack Work Done -Xcnr Sclo.
The wurk in road district No. Z), a
small district in the northern part of
the county, between Scio and Stayton,
shows what can be accomplished along
this line. This district received only
49.83 from the regular road taxes
this year, but the people voted a spe
cial road lax, which netted them
$1899.65. Not only did they tax them
selves especially for road improvement,
but they have donated In money and
work more than $:!500 additional for
road improvement, and as a result all
of the roads in, that district which do
not already have a good foundation
will be covered with crushed rock
Linn County will make big improve
ments in its roads this year, .because,
not including this volunteer road work,
it will have S162.277.22 from its tax
levies to expend in highway improve
ment. Of this amount 177.882.39 was
raised on a regular road district tax
of 2',i mills, levied in all of the dis
tricts of the county. This raonev will
be expended by the districts them
selves. .Several road districts made
special levies for road improvements,
and these levies netted an additional
S22.0S8.93 for road work. The county
also levied $62,305.91, with which to
build bridges, and for the expenses of
its general road fund.

Simple Way to
There Is one sure way that has never
failed to remove dandruff at once, and
that is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, common liquid
arvon from any drug store (this Is all
you will need), apply it at night when
retiring; uso enough to moisten the
scalp and rub it In gently with the
finger tips. ,
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve and entirely destroy every single
sign and trace of it. no matter how
much dandruff you may have.
You will find all itching and digging
of the scalp will stop instantly, and
your hair will be fluffy, lustrous,
glossy, silky and soft, and look and
feel a nundred times better, Adv.
