HOW MANY IIIIICKS HAVE YOU
That sounds like a funny question,
addressed to every citizen of Coos
Bay, but It's really a serious one.
Listen: There is now just com
pleted a magnificent building of brick
exterior and concrete interior right In
the. business heart of one of tho big
gest of western cities. It occupies a
half block and calls itself "Tho Larg
est Building In the West." It has
many floors with acres of floor space.
The. entrances are of marble. Tho
Hoots are beautifully tiled. Alto
gether it Is a credit to tho big city
in. which it stands. Oh, it's a- Jim
Now how many bricks have you
sent- to go into this big building?
Honest, how many? Of the hun
dreds of thousands of bricks put into
the walls of this building the city
where it stands has contributed
iardly a single red brick. Country
people, the people of small towns and
cltiqa far away from tho metropolis,
have sent the bricks for the construc
tion of this splendid edifice.
Yo,u may have sent In a few hods
of bricks yourself without knowing
Listen: This Magnificent struc
ture, which ornaments a city you
probably seldom seo yourself, Is built
of bricks bought with tho dollars of
people living In towns just like
Marshfleld and .North Bend towns
that, would like to have somo now
brick buildings themselves now and
then. Every dollar contributed to
tho city building fund means a nice,
hefty hod of bricks for this big, beau
tiful skyscraper, "largest in tho
world" of Its kind. This building
was put up, through tho kind dona
tions of their unknown country
cousins, by a firm that ran a small
storo In that city a few years ago.
But this firm conceived of having
thousands of strangers contribute
bricks to build Its flno, large, now
store. And tho building Is a Mall
Ordor Store. Seo?
Let everybody boost tho bargain
days real "bargain" days and let
every loyal merchant see to his own
satisfaction that tho significance of
tho word is put Into a moral reality.
Let us cmulato the example of larger
citing by bringing In a few outsldo
bricks for our own mercantile fouiv
datlons. But if wo aro to havo "bar
gain" days let them be "bargain"

O, little house with windows wide
A-looklng towards the sea!
How havo you come why have you
To mean so much to me.
Your walls within my heart are
And O, how strange It seems,
My hopes but measure to your roof,
O little house o' dreams.
O little place whore friends will come
The tangled world to flee;
Brave little nook, where peace will
Pray whore's the magic wand I need
To touch your slender beams,
And change you to a home in truth,
O little house o dreams!

THE MARRIED ONE.
Hugh McLaln says that friendship
should bo cemented with cement.
Have you noticed that the days aro
growing longer and that daylight
beats electric light?
Tho Oregon woman demands that
her husband strive to be perfect, but
runs along about as usual herself.
A Coos Bay man, when asked if ho
thought marriage a failure, replied,
no only a temporary embarrassment.
Tho woman who likes to do all tho
talking and tho woman who likes to
do nil tho listening never meet In
You hear a great many Coos Bay
women say: "If I wero only a man!"
Still, there aro many men who fall to
take advantage of their opportunities.

Marshfleld and visit tho public

The best way to meet any difficulty
Is to refuse to talk. But so few men
can keep their mouths shut.
The average man will quit the soci

A man's memory is at its poorest
in remembering his own mistakes,

When tho President was in Colo
rado hunting, tho expedition was
hard up for bear dogs. On tho third
or fourth day out, Chief Guido Goff
said. "Mr. President, I know n man
who has good bear dogs. I will see
if 1 can get them."
"All right," said tho president, "do
It." But tho man turned down tho

manded tho president. "I am the
president of the United' States."
"Well," replied tho dog ownor, "I
don't enro a if you aro, and I
wouldn't care a If you wero
Booker T. Washington, you couldn't
have my dogs."
And tho president, concluding that
tho dog ownor know his own business
best, wont back to camp and told the
story with much gleo.
Tho much-lauded "nower of tho

Tho public responds "In kind" to
