RICH JEWELS FOR REPUBLIC
Tract- of Crown Gems of Louis XVI
Found In Versailles.
Paris, April 20. The republic will
be enriched, It seems, by crown jew
els of Immense value and by much
gold which that unfortunate, Louis
XVI, could not take In his vain
flight from Paris and which agents
lie could trust Implicitly burled In
the park at Versailles.
There at earliest dawn, for a week
past, have stood four men Briand,
minister of fine arts; Dupardin-Ben-numptz,
under secretary of his min
istry; Calllaux, finance minister;
and De Nolhae, than whom no one
Is better versed In French history.
These four stand at the edge of a
gaping pit In which picked laborers
liave dug all night long. As the
dawn brightens the digging ends, the
pit Is covered with boards and earth
and a policeman, posted near, makes
certain they are not disturbed until
work Is resumed at night.
The ministers are seeking a coffer
of whose existence De Nolhae learned
In papers which he discovered in the
County Surveyor S. B. Cathcart's
hens have been playing some queer
pranks of late. Yesterday Mr. Cath
cart found an egg which Is quite a
curiosity. It was especially large,
and Mr. Cathcart decided to fry It
for breakfast. He broke it and in
side was the white and yellow of the
egg, nnd In tho center of the yolk
was another perfect egg of smaller
size, but nearly as large as an ordi
nary hen egg. The latter has not
been broken open, but as It Is un
usually heavy It may contain still
Mr. Cathcart ate the contents of
the big egg, and says It tasted better
than any fried egg he1 ever enjoyed.
Cement Telegraph Poles,
Telegraph poles made of cement,
with an Iron rod through the center
to Insure against breakage, are the
latest novelties in railway and tele
graphic construction. Officers of the
telegraph and operating departments
of the Pennsylvania lines and of the
Western Union Telegraph company
the other day Inspected poles made
of this material in a test yard at
Rochester, Pa. Manufacturing these
poles will form a new industry for
the Pittsburg district.

Our Portland Correspondent Says:
"Never in the history of Oregon has there been so much interest
centered in one place as there is in the Coos Bay Country at this time
Forget what you might have done yesterday, but do not make the same
It is not wise to tell how much you might have made on an investment
of a few dollars last week, last month, or last year History repeats itself, others
will be saying the same thing in a year or two.
There is no time like the present, grasp - the opportunity to; make good
Over-conservatism is not business ability.
Where else in the great Pacific Northwest is there another such vast and
undeveloped country? Where else on the entire Pacific Slope is there another
country so rich in resources, and with a harbor to equal Coos Bay?
With the thousands, whose faces are turned Westward, and with the pre
vailing high prices ,of real estate elsewhere, and in less favored localities, you will
make no mistake in buying property here
