What promises to be the greatest
excursion ever run out of Marshfleld
and North Bend will go to Bandon-by-the-sea
and Sunset City, Sunday,
June 23, a week from next Sunday.
It was at first decided to have this
excursion tomorrow, but the Eagles'
picnic to Charlston Bay came on that
day and the manager postponed his
excursion one week.
The bills announce: "The Finest
Observation Train Excursion Ever
Seen on the Pacific Coast." When
a Times reporter questioned this the
excursion agent got red in the face
and hot under the collar and said:
"I will make good everything I adver
tise 'and then some.' " The open
cars of the C. B. It. & E. Ry. are to be
comfortably seated and decorated
with evergreens. The Denver & Rio
Grande Railway spends thousands of
dollars every year advertising its ob
servation car through the canons of
Colorado. And this much advertised
observation car Is nothing elso but an
old flat car furnished with seats. If
one measly flat is good enough for
"See America Ftrst" tourists in the
centennial state, I guess ten open
cars comfortably seated and decorat
ed with overgreons ought to be good
enough for Coos Bay people to see
Bandon Beach, which is as much
more picturesque and unique than
Colorado's famous Garden of the
Gods, as the Pacific Ocean is superior
to the alkali fiats of the arid state.
"All sunshine makes the desert" Is an
old Arabian porverb. Coos county
has enough moisture in her atmos
phere to prevent you breathing in
dust and spitting out mud balls.
All the passenger boats of the Co
qullle Itlvor Steamboat company havo
been chartered for this excursion, the
"Dispatch," "Liberty," and "Favor
ite." To give you an idea of this
fleet of excursion boats it is only
necessary to say that the "Dispatch"
carries tluco times aa many passen
gers as any boat on Coos Bay and
this by government inspection.
The ride clown the Coquillo Itiver
Is well worth the price of the excur
sion. Not only the beautiful land
scape of hill and dale, but the banks
of the winding river are decorated by
the Great Landscape Architect of the
Universe with a profusion of myrtle,
ferns and sweet smelling shrubbery
with wild flowers of every description
blossoming with beauty.
Get away from the town and its
factories for a day's outing and in
vito your soul to the inspiration that
any lover of nature enjoys with a
thrill of rapture.
The business man can see a pro
cession of log booms that reaches al
most from Coquillo to Bandon with
eight logging railorads to feed the
hungry sawmills that cat up a thous
and logs every day and in their fury
spit out sawdust by the wagon load
and breathe hot steam from fiery
See Riverton and Staplcton, rivals
for the Drain and Coos Bay railway;
both of which have it surveyed, lo
cated, and all but built.
See the thriving Price shipyard
that is now building four ocean
steamers that stands on ground that
had not a ten penny nail at the be
ginning of the year.
See Cody's landing and logging
railway and further down the river,
on the edge of Bandon, see the great
Cody 100,000 feet sawmill ncaring
completion. Adjoining it will be
built the $250,000 pulp and paper
mill1 for which Bandon's hustling,
enterprising citizens raised $50,000.
We have passed Prosper and its
mill, Aberdeen and its industries and
have not mentioned them.
But greater than all is Bandon it
self, with Its woolen mill that has
orders for Its famous woolens IS
months ahead. See the Government
Life Saving Station butting up
against the principal hotel, almost in
the heart ,of the city-on-the-sea.
But greater than all Bandon Beach
with its water-worn statuary-chiseled
by the waves-so that a natural philos
opher, with the gift of seeing things,
can see the shape of every animal
from the monkey to the lion and up
to tho elephant. There are squaws,
bucks and papooses and hunchbacks.
The beef eaters that guarded the
tower of London, Gog and Magog are
there. And there are caves, arches
and natural bridges, such as is to be
seen nowhere else all carved by
And there are miles of sand beach
as level as a billiard tabic, and at
Sunset City temporary bath houses
are being erected so that men and
women can take a dip in the Pacific.
A huge bonfire of the driftwood will
be built so that you can take a bath
comfortably In a hall storm.
The Bandon Concert Band tho
best band In any city in the United
States thc size of Bandon, will give
two grand concerts on the Beach for
Fare for the round trip including
bathing, concerts and all, $1.50.
Observation train leaves at 8 a. m.

North Bend but a few years ago had one factory, soon it had several, now there are a dozen, and the raw materials are here
for a hundred more. Factories make payrolls, these in turn create business houses which invite banks, jobbers traders and trans
