THE DAILY c6oSrBAf'TlMES, MARSHFIELD.
- - COOS HAY
, By Frank B. TIchcnor.
On a western coast in a" western plain,
There's a land of sunshine', gold and fame,
On the eastern rint with a timber chain,
The coast range Imprisons this grand domain, .
While tho western coast by the Pacific kissed,
Welcomes as host tho white-sailed ships
Nature could not have bestowed a fairer spot.
A more precious jewel to the heart,
On struggling mankind their fortunes to gain,
By the deep blue waters of the western main,
Thy mountains are rich in treasures so dear,
Nothing is sought but wo find it here,
Inexhaustible stores of gold and wealth, v
But better than theso the blessing of health.
Venus did not forget thee with her gift of beauty rare.
Myriads of brightest flowers perfume tho morning air.
Ceres strews around her carpet of tender green,
Paradise thou art, no lovelier evr seen.
While fairer daughters tho earth havo never trod,
All honor to thee is duo "We thank Thee God."
Of sturdy sons their praises we could ring,
From Manila's shore to the throne of tho mighty king,
Telling of fame in glorious battle won,
Heroes of a nation, wo may Justly say, "Well done."
Gladsome Springtime dwells forever hero.
Tho songs of many birds Impart their cheer. .
Monarch of the forest, king of a mighty host,
Here is thy home, of theo wo alone can boast."
Land of the happy, dearest spot on earth to me,
Homo of the happy, home of the free. '
Thy wonders can never half be told, '
For thou art rich in song, in treasures of gold,
Wealth of coal fields, in forests of wood,
Gem of the nation, home of the good.
Land of my sires, for theo my prayers shall rise,
To tho generous giver, ruler above the skies,
Through storm and sunshine, whatever be thy say,
Trusting in a savior's lovo to bless Coos Bay.
Written for Coos Bay Times. '"

Portland, Or., Nov. 11. On tho
basis of reports from county inspec
tors the value of Oregon's fruit crop
this year is ofifclally estimated at
14,375,136. This figure, far in ex
cess of any previous year, Is based
on amountB actually received by
growers, and represents an increase
of 53 per cent over tho fruit crop
valuation of last year.
To tho high prices now paid for
Oregon fruit is partly duo the in
crease in this year's total, but tho
larger acreage set out in orchards in
response to Eastern demand is also
a factor. Tho heavy plantings of
the last few years are beginning to
bear, and the further Increase in the
value of the crop will probably be
very rapid in the future.
According to the president of the
State Board of Horticulture, the suc
cess with which Oregon growers are
meeting "within a short time will
make fruit growing the greatest
source of wealth in the state."
The applo crop forms tho largest
item In the list with a total value of
$1,423,000. Prunes paid Oregon
growers this year $1,390,625; pears,
peaches and cherries all in excess of
$230,000, and strawberries over
$400,000. Oregon pears this year
have sold at wholesale, in the East
at ten cents apiece, Hood, River ap
ples as high as $3.75 a box. At these
prices, with cheap land, good trans
portation and a steady market, Ore
gon is attracting settlers and prospec
tive fruit growers from all sections
of tho country.

THE CITRUS BELT
The following letter, in reply to
inquiries from Mr. I. S. Kaufman, re
garding tho citrus fruit belt, at Por
tervillo, Cal., was written by R. S.
Tyrrell, who was hero last week to
visit his sons in the Coquillo Valley:
In reply to your inquiries regard
ing the orango land in Tulare County,
Southern California, I wished to say:
That tho Citrus fruit belt extends
eight miles wldo and about 30 miles
in length parallel with tho foothills
and the Portorvllle branch of tho
Southorn Pacific Railroad, In tho
southern portion of Tulare Countv.
There wero 2000 carloads of oranges
shipped from Portorvllle last year
it took all the premiums nt the great
citrus fruit fair, and is already tho
center of this wonderfully lucrativo
industry. Tho soil is a rich brown
loam, with inexhaustiblo water near
tho surface. Already over 14,000
acres aro irrigated from theso wells
alone in Southorn Tulare.
Both soli and climate aro equally
adapted to raising figs, lemons, or
nnges, grapes and all tropical and
somltropical fruits, besides being
much earlier than other portions of
California. Our Navel oranges aro
in market uororo Thanksgiving day,
just ns they aro beginning to pick
olsewhoro, giving us tho early mar
ket aud tho top price for our prod
ucts. Tho attention of Southorn Califor
nia fruit growers has only recently
boon turned to theso lands, but al
ready over three-fourths of a million
dollars havo boon invested in them
now towns laid out, one already built
and mnny thousand acres surveyed
and stnked off in small holdings,
ready for tho spring rush of colonists
already buying homes in this Terra
Bella (Beautiful Land), .Terra Bella
Is tho nanio of ono of tho towns,
meaning beautiful land, I am colo
nizing several families of my own
children here, and would like other
settlers of tho right stamp to como
and avail themselves of tho present
low price of these lands and ' the
great opportunities not only for mak
ing a home but acquiring a compe
tency within the spaie of a few years.
The sixth crop of oranges will pay
for the land, the leveling, tho trees,
the setting, tho well and machinery
and the cultivation, and leave you
the most delightful home with land
worth from $800 to $1000 per acre.
Mr. J. H. Williams, of Porterville,
recently sold 100 acres of land near
that place, only 80 of which wero in
oranges from ono to six years old,
for $100,000, went into this belt of
orange land and has bult a town,
church, boarding-house and store,
orange land and has built a town,
leveled, piped and laid out lots, and
will put a prohibitive clause in every
deed making it a thoroughly pro
hibitive town from the start. It is
three miles from the place where we
arp making our homes.
Thus far wo have had no smut,
no frost, no smudge and no scale.
We have never had to fumigate qur
trees, as tho San Jose scale cannot
live here when it is carelessly
brought in on tho tree. Wo are near
the foothills In tho warm belt, with
an altitude varying from 350 feet to
500 feet, rendering it as healthful as
any portion of our California climate.
Whllo the days aro so hot as to pro
duce the thinnest skinned and there
5or the most saleablp orango In tho
world, tho nights, aro sufficiently cold
to make sleeping with windows up
or oven out of doors a real healthful
luxury. Tho Southern Pacific has put
on a local train from Fresno to-Bak-ersfield,
one from Tracy to Porter
and also reballasted tho roadbed and
mado this tho main passenger lino be
tween San Francisco and Chicago.
Wo feel that tho future of this coun
try is not only sure, but that land is
enhancing in value very rapidly. I
shall bo pleased to answer any fur
ther iuquiries, not only by personal
letter, but by descriptive literature

What a Feather Bed Does.
Few people, even physicians them
selves, seem to know tho principal
reason why medical science con
demns tho uso of feather beds in
winter as well as In summer," said a
New York physician recently.
It Is because feather beds aro
highly hyproscoplc a rather formid
able word, but one meaning simply
that feathers readily absorb and con
denso moisture. Tho body is con
stantly throwing off wasto matter
through tho skin and tho lungs. Tho
feathers in tho bed will absorb this
waste matter as readily as it " will

feathers retain tho wasto matter dur
ing tho day when the bed Is cold
even when it is aired, unless also
warmed by Bunshlno during tho
time it is exposed to the air.
"At night when tho body of tho
sleeper warms tho bed tho feathers
ronow their hygroscopic action and
throw off the wasto matter absorbed
the night before. Tho suscentihlo
