Nowadays farm produce of this na

manufacturing, and it arrives at its

elegant pullmans which pass
through Salem ride so easy as they.
They are made especially for the Pa

proved their worth. They went
through on fast express time and
the fruit which they transported
was sold for top prices. Such is tho
progress made for carrying the
3iuall and perishable fruit of this
part of the American continent.

COOS DAY TIMES
SEND A DELEGATE.
THE TIMES is in receipt of a tele
gram from Mr. E. Hofer, presi
dent of the Willamette Development
League. That body will holds its
annual convention in Cottage Grove,
Oregon, on June 20. Mr. Hofer re
quests that tho commercial bodies on
Coos Bay send delegates to the con
vention. Practically every commer
cial body in the State of Oregon will
be represented at tho one day ses
sion, and Coos Bay should make an
equal showing with the rest. Gath-'
erlngs such as these are of vital im
portance to the upbuilding of tho
different communities in the State.
Men meet with a common purpose
and a spirit of co-operation is evoked
that will result in an incalculable
amount of future good to the differ
ent communities. There is, however,
a double reason why Coos Bay should
be represented at this convention.
The Cottage Grove Commercial Club
is making a hard campaign to secure
an extension of the proposed Coos
Bay-Roseburg eleciric line. It is
the desire to extend the line from
Roseburg via Cottage Grove to
Portland. Assuming that tho Rose-burg-Coos
Bay lino and the Portland
extension become a reality Coos Bay
will be benefited immeasurably. A
direct connection with Portland
COOS BAY POTATOES.
THE famous spud of Coos Bay may
soon be utilized In channels
where it will not only benefit the
farmer in a financial way, but glvo
added prestige to the Coos Bay coun
try. The latest use to which the po
tato has been put is in the making of
lead pencils. It is well known that
for some time there has been appre
hension regarding the decreasing sup
ply of cedar and other wood neces
sary In the manufacture of pencils.
It is also known that the cedar wood
used at present In this line is expen
sive and tho quality becoming lim
ited, consequently makers of this Im
portant piece of stationery in the
commercial and educational world
are seeking a new process by which
the pencils can be made without an
Increased expense. In this it is be
lleved the potato will play an Impor
tant part, as In Germany a composi
tion to take the place of cedar in
lead pencils has been discovered, the
main ingredient of which is potatoes,

The United States consul In one of
tho German cities speaks of the new
pencil, in a report to this govern
ment, In the following terms:
"I have seen and used some of
these pencils, which, while slightly
heavier, are tho same In size, form
and appearance as those at present in
use, admit of sharpening a little more
easily and can be produced at a very
nominal figure. A permanent com
pany was founded In March at Berlin,
acting under patents in fourteen
countries, with a capital of $154,700,
of which $95,200 represents the cost
of tho patents, while $59,500 has
been retained for a working capital.
Of tho working capital, $19,040 will
be used In erecting a factory with six
presses and a daily output of 48,000
pencils. The cost of manufactur, all
expenses Included rent, light, power,
wages, composition, lead, selling
cost, etc. is estimated at $0.00928.
A second quality pencil will be made
whoso cost will be only $0.00595.
At tho estimated production of
4S;000 pencils a day, three hundred
working days a year, tho yearly pro
duction would bo 14,400,000 pencils.
According to recent statistics tho ox
port from Germany to foreign coun
tries equaled 15,100 tons, with tho
total number of pencils at 3,033,-200,000.
