entertainment and it is expected that
a largo audlenco will be in attend
ance. A brief epitome of Phillip's famous
play, for tho benefit of those who
have not read "Puola and Francesa"
is given below:
Many years ago In tho period be
ginning in the year 1300 and ending
at the poet's death the Divine Com
edy was written. As ho is guided
by Virgil through tho descending cir
cles of Hell, Danto sees in the second
circle two forms blown lightly before
tho blast. He speaks to them and in
a few lines Francesca tells a chapter
of tho story of the love between her
and Paolo. That is all.
The suggestion there contained has
been taken up and embodied in a
dramatic poem of great beauty by
tho English poet, Stephen Phillips.
Tho play Paolo and Francesca
is one of tho most beautiful written
in tho Nineteenth century. It grows
Into a story of deeper and more In
tense Interest through its four acts,
scintillating with genus of lyric
beauty and written in modern, simple
English which mnlces Its appeal uni
versal, as well to tho cultured as to
tho layman. There is nothing in it
of those qualities which the latter
terms "classical" and hence to bo
avoided, and yet it is a classic in it
self. Tho story treats of tho reign of tho
city republics of Italy in the early
middle ages. Giovanni Maletesta,
tyran of rtiminl and a Guelf, has
struggled long with his Ghlbbelino
enemies nnd finally a truce is de
clared and tho daughter of his enemy
Polenta, Francesca da Rimini, is of
fered to him in marriage. Giovanni
has become old and cruel; ho Is a
hunchback and lame and sends his
younger brother Paolo, who Is
blessed with tho gifts of an Adonis,
to bring his bride. Paolo does so
and ho and Francesca rail in lovo and
tho story of tho drama is the struggle
between his lovo for Francesca and
his loynlty and affection for his
brother, between whom thero had
boon horotoforo an "indossolublo
bond." Giovanni is warned by his
old blind nurse, Angela, of tho dan
gor lurking In tho future but tho
marriage takes place.
Paolo departs and tho keen mind
of Lucrocia-Giovanni's cousin who
has becntno embittered against fate
through tho loss of her husband and
tho denial of her great affection for
children, discovers tho secret lovo
and puts Giovanni on his guard.
Paolo departing for tho war finds
that ho cannot part from Francesca
and resolves to die. Ho repairs to
Pulci an apothecary for tho vial of
poison and tolls the story of his love,
and Giovanni lurking behind an ar
ras, having como also for a drug
(with which to win Francesca's
lovo), learns tho secret at Inst.
Giovanni roparts to the war to
quoll a sudden uprising ngainst tho
peoplo of Pesaro who have revolted
against tho tax laid on them and
Paolo struggling in his conflict of
Hfo and death discovers Francesca
in mi arbor reading out of a book,
mute's story is ropeated In tho scono
and thoy rovoal their mutual lovo.
In tho last act Giovanni returns
from the war nnd learning that Paolo
Is atlll nlivo and at homo plans tho
death of both tho lovers. Lucrezia
aids him but later repents and sets
to work to frustrate tho plot.
Tho donouoment conies in ono of
tho strongest acts over penned and
tho vision of tho nurso is fulfilled.

A. L. Nosier of llrltlgo Who Had Not
Visited Coos Bay for Klulit Years
Scarcely Knew City.
A. L. Nosier, postmastor and gen
oral niorchant at Bridge, Ore., and
an enthusiastic booster of southwest
ern Orogon, was In Marshlleld this
week for the first time In eight
years. Tho development of Marsh
field and Coos Bny In that period was
a revelation to him.
"I scarcely know tho city," he re
marked. "I had heard that It was
growing but I never anticipated any
thing like I have witnessed. How
ever, it is simply another proof of
my faith in southwestern Oregon nnd
evidence that this section Is bound to
become ono of tho host in tho couu
try." Mr. Nosier has been a resldont of
this section sluco boyhood, having
moved hero with bis parents from
Den .MoIiiim, la. ills father formerly
owned a farm that Is now embraced
within tho city limits of l)es Moines,
which has grown from a town of u
few tlioiuund. when they left, to a
lll of 1)0,000.

Sub-contracts for Drain-Coos
Bay Railway All Being Let
With the beginning of spring, con
struction work Is soon to bo resumed
on tho Drain-Coos Bay railroad. In
disputable ovldenco of this fact has
beon presented publicly for a month
or more past by tho accumulation of
material at Drain and tho nctlvity of
Southorn Pnclflc agonts from both
ends of tho projected line. Tho
last shipment of steol to bo used in
building all of tho necessary bridges
arrived at Drain last week. Cement,
ties nnd all other necessary building
accessories have been on the ground
for some time and more ties luivo
been cut during tho winter. A num
ber of horses and mules to bo used
In grading work nro also on hand.
Wholesale quantities of feed for tho
anlmnls nro being purchased in Coos
county by A. J. Hartley, a Southern
Pacific agent, and right-of-way con
tracts are being renewed wherever
necessary. The next few weeks Is
expected to seo several hundred men
Although tunnel work wns In
progress moat of tho winter, thero
was considerable speculation ns to
whether full operations were to bo
renewed this spring. Tho failure of
the (' K. I o-n Co, which had con
tract for building the llrst few miles
of the road, and the financial panic
a few months afterwards that
sorloiiBly affected tho railroads of the
country, led to roporta that there
would be nothing done In further
nnot of the project until 1909. He
cent developments, however, as de
scribed above, discredits such re
ports, and boforo long tho "dirt will
