Many Koseburg people have decided
to spend their vacation at Popular North
Beach, at the mouth of the Columbia.
Leaving Portland (daily except Sunday
and Monday) on the O. K. & N. Co.'s
palatial Steamer T. J. Potter queen of
river boats five hours are consumed in
making the trip to Astoria, the scenery
including all that is beautiful, and
through the great salmon fishing waters
of the Lower Columbia. After a short
stop at Astoria, the steau - is off for
Ilwaco, on Baker's Bay, where the pas
sengers board the train waiting and are
soon off for North Beach, the popular
summer resort of the North Pacific coast.
During the tiip from Ilwaco the first
good view of the Pacific is secured, the
train running along the ridge of the
beach within two hundred yards of the
breakers. The beach is twenty-seven
miles long, two hundred yards wide at
low tide, and so hard that
wheels scarcely leave a mark. It is an
Work of the United States Geological
Survey in ths Petroleum Fields
of California.
The United States Geological Survey,
within the last eighteen months, has
been making a preliminary examination
of the productive oil fields of California,
with a view, first, to acquiring a know
ledge of the general conditions of oc
curence of petroleum in the State; and,
second, to applying the law- that may
be deduced from such iec rein's to other
portions of the Coast Uange. The Dir
ector of the Survey has lone recognized
the paucity of knowledge relating to
Coast Range geology, and in view of the
fact that several of the formations of this
region are oil-bearing he is now direct
ing especial efforts to unraveling the in-:
tricate problems with which mininc en
gineers, oil men, and others have to do
in the prosecution of tlieir professional
I and industrial work. A considerable
j number of topographic maps, covering
, the agricultural regions of' southern
i California, have already been published
1 these with special reference to the
water supply. Lattorlv other sheets of

Dated Koseburg, Douglas County Ore-
It mar be mentioned in passing that
the Coast Range of California from a
geological standpoint is as little known
as many of the more inaccessible por
tions of the United States. Since tin
surveys of Whitney little attention hat
been given to this important mountai:
system, the sierras, nchly productive
in gold and silver, having absorbed the
principal efforts of the geologists, State
as well as Governmental. In the pro
secution ot tne surveys in the coas
ranges the work has to be underteken
from the beginning, and many general
problems ot geology must be worked out
oeiore satisfactory conclusions mav be
drawn with regard to economical
problems. As nearly as possible, how
ever, these investigations will go hand in
