COOPERATION IS URGED.
What Coos county needs more than
anything else Is a trunk line of rail
road, and If the various towns of
the county would get In and work to
gether wo could accomplish the de
sired end with comparative ease.
What Is for the Interest of one part
of tho county Is good for the whole
county. People In other parts of
tho west are working on this plan
and are succeeding admirably. Coos
Bay needs a railroad, so docs the
Coquille valley, and if Harrlman
does not get busy and build one, then
negotiations should be opened with
some other company. The Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul Is building to
tho Pacific coast, and if they were
apprised of tho great resources of
this country they could no doubt,
be Induced to push a road into It, at
a very early date. A railroad Is what
ive neod and a railroad is what we
must have if tho best Interests of
the country are to be served. Let
the Coos Bay cities, Coquille, Myr
tle Point, Bandon and the entire
county get to work and we will soon
accomplish what wo desiro. The
coming meeting in August, at Marsh-
fleld, at which time tho project will
lie discussed, should be attended by
business men from all over the coun
try, and a united effort made to in
duce a railroad to como this way.
TEOPLE OF OREGON ARE PRO
GRESSIVE. Galveston, Texas, Los Angeles,
3al., Des Moines, Iowa, and other
cities have adopted the commission
plan of city government.
That means that three or five men
govern tho city Just as three or five
men govern a county and do it suc
cessfully In Oregon.
In addition to the commission plan
tho cities above named and other
cities have adopted tho "Oregon
Idea" of Bolf-Eovornment JJHi
Whilo wo ure told tne p'eoplo of
Oregon are going crazy over new
ideas, Borne of the above strong Re
publican cities have gone crazy too.
For Instance, Des Moines and Los
Angeles are strong Republican cities
and are rapidly growing progressive
Wo copy what follows from a
'beautiful pamphlet advertising the

ters: Tho 'Des Moines Plan" of muni
cipal government Is the most advanc
ed form of government by commis
sion. It has attracted world-wide at
tention, and its practical application
will be watched by mon of affairs In
every city of Union. Under tho "Des
Moines Plan" the entire government
of tho city Is vested In a commission
of five. One of this number Is tho
mayor, and tho entire body consti
tutes tho council. The function of
government Is divided Into five parts,
each commissioner being tho head
ot one department. Tho mayor Is tho
oxocutlvo of tho department of pub
JIc affairs by virtue of his office The
five departments are named as fol
lows: 1, Department of Public Affairs.

THE CRY OF THE DREAMER.
AM tired of planning and tolling
In the crowded hives of men.
Heart ui-firy of building and spoiling.
And spoiling nnd building again,
And I long Tor tlio clear old river,
Where I dreamed my youth away,
For a dreamiir Mvpb forever,
And a tollur dies In a day.
I nm sick of the showy seeming
Of n life thnt Is half a lie.
Of the fncet lined with scheming
In the thront that hurries by
Tiom the sleepless thoughts' endeavor
I would so where the children play.
For a dre.unrr llvis forever.
And a thinker dies In a day.
I can feel no pride, but pity
For the burdens the rich endure.
There Is nothing sweet In the city
Hut the patient lives of the poor.
Oh. the little hands too skillful
And the child tnlnd grown with weeds.
The daughter's heart grown willful
And tho father's heart that bleedsl
No, no! From tho street's rude bustle,
From trophies of mart nnd stage,
I would fly to tho woods' low rustle
And the meadow's kindly page.
Let mo dream as of jore by the river
And be loved for tho dream alway.
For a dreamer lives forever.
And a thinker dies In a day.

If the lady In question was his wife

THE COOS RIVER GIRL.
A little fellow who had just felt
the hard side of the slipper, when
the tears had dried somewhat, turned
to his mother. "Mother," he asked,
"did grandpa spank father when he
was a little boy?"
".Yes,, answered his mother im
pressively. "And did his father whip him
when ho. was little?"
"And did his father spank him?"
"Well, who started this thing, any
way?" A Misfit Adage.

Rules for a Man Who Would Slurry.
Learn whether she Is selfish. You
can toll this in three ways by the
manner in which she listens to what
you say, by the way she accepts what
you do for her, and by the difference
between tho way she treats you and
the way she treats others.
Is she fickle? If she talks about
light things she isn't. Deep, she Is.
Is she extravagant? Study the
way in which she protests against
your spondlng money on her and al
ways arranges matters so that you
can't help but do it.
Is she a bad housekeeper? Watch
tho way she dresses. If she is splc

When you have satlsfiod your mind
that sho Is all of these things marry
her at once, if you can get her, for

First, because if sho really loves
you she will change.
Second, because if you lovo her It
will bo so much more Interesting.
Third, because you are probably
mistaken about her, anyway. Judge

"Baseball Is a funny proposition,"
observed the umpire. "It has differ

J Some fans aro tempted to an apoplec
