. BANDON NOTES .
Dandon, Oct. 10. The infant
child of Harry Hunt of this place
died early yesterday morning. Death
was sudden and due to a complica
tion of troubles peculiar to Infancy.
The funeral will occur tomorrow
morning at 10 a. in.
The- funeral of Sid Nelson took
place todajfc at 2 P. M., a large at
tendance of friends were there. The
funeral sermon was preached by
Rev. Win, Horsfall. Deceased was
a brother of Mrs. Geo. Dutton who
died a moth ago, and everybody
was expressive of the sympathy felt
for the bereaved family.
At the regular meeting of Delphi
Lodge No. G4, Knights of Pythias,
last night, H. W. Dunham was pre
sented by the lodge with a beautiful
gold watch, with appropriate In
scriptions Within tho case. Hark,
who has been a lifelong worker In
the Pythian ranks, a member of hist
oric Myrtle Lodge No. 3, of Marsh
fleld, has been the order's best and
most unselllsh exponent for many
years. It. E. L. Bordtlllon made the
presentation and for the first time
In history Mr. Dunham was found
without a good supply of oratory,
but expressed his thanks In a rather
husky voice and few words. The
local lodge has purchased a new
outfit of paraphernalia for degree
-work. Their anniversary ball will
be given as usual this year November
Considerable comment of a very
pleasant nature is being heard
among Bandou people upon the ed
itorial on Bandon that appeared in
the Coos Bay Times a short time
ago; the tendency of the Times here
as elsewhere is to eliminate jingo
Ism and narrowness In local as well
as greater affairs.
The clearance statistics for the
port of Bandon for tho month
ntnilni- October 1. 1307. record a

OX THE SIDE. O
Last evening two commercial men
were having a quiet talk in a local
resort and thought they had tho
floor to themselves, when in comes
n Times representative looking for
the elusive news item, who took a
position in a nearby corner and list
ened attentively. This Is what he
Mr. Jimmy Itodgers, from San
Francisco, was the first speaker. Ho
told of tho great timber that was
found In Humbolt and Del Norte
counties in California and cited a
Btory of a couple of men who came
from Iowa to look at the timber sim
ply as a matter of satisfying them
selves of its prodigious dimensions.
One was a merchant who had visited
the country and had returned east
nnd told tho tales which make tho
man from the east lose all confi
dence in tho Integrity and honesty of
humanity. His friend, the banker,
said he would pav tho morchnnt's
and his own expenses west If he
would show him the timber he had
described. Should ho fall down nnd
fall to make hit tnle pood, then the
merchant was stuck for the trip, in
cluding whatever champagne and
frills tho banker cared to Introduce.
Itodgers mot them at Eureka, as
they were making the rounds and
struck up an acquaintance. Ho was
called upon to decide the wager, and
having a friend vho was engaged In
lumbering, called him In nnd the
party of four went out to'tho best
timber In the neighborhood. The
first timber tho banker was shown
was a redwood tree which had a cir
cumference of 8 feet. Tho banker
said It wns a cood sized tree and ac
knowledged tho expenses were on
him. To s'iow him that the deal was
not prearranged, they afterwards
took him a wavs farther and showed
him a tree which measured 1G9 feet
In circumference. This waato tree
with suckers, but the banker never
thought of looking above the butt

and so went homo thinking there
was no limit to the size of trees in
Mr. Peter, the other traveling
man, said that was a good story, but
he had seen some largo trees In
Washington this summer. He went
on to relate a story of a tree In
Washington which had been burned
down, and left the stump standing
whore a woman, who owned the
homestead on which It stood,
was occupying the shell as an
eight room bungalow, with a
woodshed, cow barn nnd horse
atable all in the tree trunk.
When asked whnt species of -tree he
had been describing, Mr. Peter said
it was a BIG tree. Thereat, the re
porter faded away and has been won
dering since whether the conversa
tion was manufactured for his spec
ial benefit, or whether the boys
thought they were telling the truth.
A. H. Eddy has been busy since
coming to town. New cottage de
signs. A NEW DUMPING
GROUND FOR GARBAGE
A citizen of Marshfleld has com
plained to the Times that garbage
Is being dumped from the new ex
tension of Front street on the tide
lands north of the city, and says it
will very soon prove a most flagrant
nuisance to the general public. Citi
zens or strangers who own the tide
lands In question should make Im
mediate arrangements to have such
vork discontinued and provide for
prosecuting those who are practic
Ing the nuisance. The city of Marsh
field has lately provided a dumping
ground for such garbage, and until
the place is ready some other meth
od of disposal should be employed
for the offal which, no matter where
it is placed, Is more or less a nui
sance. The new plank highway is
a most enticing and tempting avenue
for the ready disposal of garbage,
refuse, offal, and all other matters
cf promiscuous concentration, and
though tho question has been raked
over time and again, when tho ques
tion gets to a showdown, it always
breaks out in a new place, as in this
Instance. ,Abate it, and provide an
Isolated placo for this matter, is
the sentiment of all who have any
regard for the city's welfare.
Football Suits Arrive.
Tho football suits for the Marsh
fleld High School team arrived yes
terday on the Plant and the boys
are planning great things for next
Saturday when thov meet the North
Bend team. The colors are slightly
mixed, since the sweaters were or
dered In purple to conform with the
colors of the high school, but came
in dark blue. They will be retained,
however, and spectators and ad
mirers of the team can imagine
the colors are what they should be.
Practice today will be of the finishing
order and tomorrow the first game"
of the season will take place.
INSTRUMENTS RECORD SHAKE.
