AVIIifi I'USH IT THROUGH.
The proposition to build an elec
tric line from Roseburg to Coos Day
with Dougles and Coos county capi
tal seems to meet with the general
approval of the people of this lo
cality. There Is every assurance that
the scheme will he carried through.
The Roseburg people are ready to do
their part, and the movement has
been taken up here with the proper
spirit, and the right kind of men
have hold of It and will push It
The Myrtle Point and Coqullle peo
ple want the road to come through
their cities, and the Coos Bay people
feel the same way about It. The Co
qullle valley Is a rich agricultural
district, and that is the best route
for the road.
This electric line will mean much
for Coos Day, and Roseburg as well.
It will give the Interior a good outlet
to a harbor and will bring business
to Coos Day. This is the natural
outlet for the whole southern part
of the state, and the electric lino
from Roseburg Is the first step
toward making the connecting links
which are needed for the betterment
of the coast country and the Interior.
1SUILDIXG IS G1CXI0IIAL.
Mnrshfield is having a great build
ing boom now. One can hear In any
part of the city the ring of the ham
mer, and look In any direction and
see new houses and buildings going
up. There are now In Marshfield at
least twenty new houses in the course
of construction, besides many others
which will be started soon. There
aro quite a number of big business
blocks to be erected, in addition to
thoso which havo been finished and
which aro now being built.
The city was a llttlo slow about
getting stnrted In building, but when
the start was once made the building
has rapidly increased. It seemed to
break out all over the city at the
samo time. This, howover, Is only
the beginning, and if tho material
can ho procured there promises to bo
a constant increase In the building
of ninny houses and business blocks.
It Is not a mero boom, but simply
tho meeting of tho demands of tho
constantly Increasing population.
A HKAIiTIIV PLACE.
Tho statistics of the state board
of health, mention of which Is made
in another column, show flnttoring
conditions In Coos county. This Is
certainly uu actual evidence of the
fact that tho Coos Hay country Is a
healthy place. There aro not many
counties in any part of tho country
that can make such a showing.
In the every day places vheie tho
average man would least suspnet
anything but tho ordinary routine
of business to rovolvo daily In hun
drum fashion aro really found the
fundamental philosophies of life. We
chanced In a tailor shop tho other
day and walked back to tho table
whore tho man with tho noodle set
in Hindoo fashion busily plying the
Instrument backwards and forwards
sldowlsu and lengthwlso, gradually
bringing into sliapo and form, with
tho Infinite ease borno of long pract
ice, an elegant finished garment from
out of n few yards of cloth.
A tailor Is a sort of human-geologist,
if such freedom may be pormttted
In tho uso of tho word. Some soy Is
Is because ho makes a business of
studying the humps and bumps of
the human frame, and, knowing the
oxterlor, comes to have a sort of
preternatural luaitcht into the interi
or. Some give other reasons but all
tend to the one opinion thai the tail
or is in a distinctive class as a plill
On the ilftv mentioned the p.irile
ular tailor in quction was In an un
usually philosophical mood and the
conversation soon turned to the
foibles and weakness of mankind in
"There 'alnt very many people In
the world of the real stripe any
more," said the tailor lighting a
match to the tobacco in his short,
stubby pipe and hardly suspending
for a moment the sewing of a seam
In the sleeve of the future coat dur
ing the operation. "For that matter
there never rias been. The whole
game's a farce artificial. Men have
a variety of different masks for every
occasion and it Is rare indeed when
a view behind the mask is obtained.
When a man goes down to his office
In the morning he dons the business
mask; when he goes to the club he
dons the good fellowship mask; and
at the reception or ball he masque
rades under the social domino. It
all comes down to the fact that life
Is a burlesque.
"Your wife dies. Your friends
greet you with just the proper mix

Not too much or too little of either

that the chef uses In the mixing of
the Ingredients of the dinner cake.
"The minister steps In the pulpit
for the Sunday sermon. Note the
air of welghtiness tempered to the
proper state with carefully prepared
words and phrases.

bonnets. But It Is time to close up."

S. L. Gllroy has several lots at the
corner of Brunett and California
avenues graded for the purpose of

the rest of his property here.
Tho residence will be modern
throughout, having bath, hot and

finished. The house contains five
rooms, besides a bath and vestibule.

about two weeks. The site of this
dwelling is most charming as it is a
quiet place surrounded with plenty

Eight Itoom House.
Ross and A. J. Hansen havo built

buildings are story and half affairs

both being built on the same plan.
They are modern throughout and will
make very desirable homes as they

chances to rent the buildings,
