"Jim," One of the E. H. Harri-
man Canines, Cared For
"Jim," one of the E. H. Harrimau
bear hounds -which were sent to Col.
Grimes, yesterday underwent ar
operation in Marshfleld. The opera
tion was probably one of the most
noted that a Coos Bay canine ever
underwent. However, It was a suc
cess and the hound has been taksn
back to the Gould ranch on Norrh
Coos Hiver to recuperate and get in
readiness for future combats wltn
bears and other big game.
How "Jim" met with the lnjurbs
that Tequlred the operation is .lot
exactly known. About a week ay,'.
he and the other hounds were taken
out for a hunt and during the chas-,
he was lost. The party was unab'e
to flnd any trace of him and finally
returned to the Gould ranch wlthoat
Two or three days elapsed and fi
nally one day the canine was found
on the road near Golden Falls nearer
dead than alive. Several bad wounilH
were In evidence one gash along Mie
side had penetrated to the Intestines
The dog appeared to realize "his ecu
dition and seemingly wanted human
A telephone message notified Col.
Grimes of tho bear hound's InjuiJes
and he Immediately sent "word to
have "Jim" brought to Marshfiald to
be 'cared for.
From tho appearance of the
wounds, a number expressed the be
llel that the canine tackled a bear,
a wild cat or a cougar and came off
second best. That the hound sur
vived to get back to the ranch was
a wonder to many.

KILLED ON NASHVILLE STREET
Inspector Vaille of the U. S.
Postal Service Investigates
U. S. Mail Route Inspector Vaille
left Marshfleld yesterday after a trip
of inspection over the Coos Bay mall
routes after having taken steps to
secure better service for this section
this winter. While he was not able
I to outline just what changes would
be made, he stated while here that he
was confident that tho Coos county
towns would be given better service
than they had last winter and pre
He came in over the Myrtle Point
route to determine if It would be ad
visable to change the magazines and
heavy second-class mall to a different
route and have them brought in on
tho railroad " from Myrtle Point.
Owing to the probability of the Coos
Bay wagon road not being passable
during the worst parts of the rainy
season, it Is not likely this change
will be done.
Sheriff Fenton of Douglas county,
who had the mall carrying contract
has given it up since assuming of
fice and It Is now In charge of his
bondsmen. The latter have furnished
better rigs and apparently are, tak
ing steps to Improve the service.
Postmaster Curtis of Marshfleld,
Is pleased over tho prospects of bet
ter service during the winter months.
The plan started by tho Eureka
Chamber of Commerce to have a
mail service Inaugurated on the
coast steamships is not meeting with
much approval in Marshfleld. Those
here who have Investigated the mat
ter say the establishment of mail
service on the steamships might
mean that the overland mall service
between here and Roseburg would
be discontinued. If this was done,
Coos county towns would not have
as good a service tho year around
from the steamships as from the
overland and not nearly as good a
service during the summer months.
