misuse of our forests. We destroy

an area larger than that of Pennsyl

smaller than Rhode Island. And year
by year, by careless cutting and by
fire, we lower the capacity of exist

not to waste.
"If these things are done, they will

Later Each Day Despite Excel
lent Weather and Good
The mall service from Roseburg
to Coos Bay Is rapidly growing
worse, being a few hours later each
day despite the excellent weather
that has been prevailing and the
fairly good roads between here and
Roseburg. At 2:30 this afternoon,
the mall had not reached here and
Postmaster Curtis had not been ap
prised of when he might expect It.
It has been late for several days In
succession now. The first day, the
driver claimed a wheel on the wag
on broke, another day the wagon
tongue broke and what happened to
day is only a matter of conjecture.
Some time ago, a mail route in
spector was here and announced that
Coos Bay would have much better
mail service than In the past, the car
rying company having secured better
horses and equipment. Whether he
was misled, patrons of the local post
offices are now wondering.
A year ago now, Coos Bay was in
tho heighth of the rainy season and
there was an excuse for the mall be
ing late. Evidently the carrier has
been comparing his record with a
year ago and forgetting the differ
ences in weather conditions Is trying
to livo up to his old schedule.

Widow Obeys Dying Husband's Last
BELLINGHAM, Wash., Dec. 8.
News was received here of the mar
riage of Mrs. Nellie Oppdenhoof of
this city to Charles Oppdenhoof of
St. Louis after she had traveled 2000
miles to become the bride of her
brother-in-law at the behest of her
dying husband, William Oppenhoof.
The brothers, Charles and William,
were rivals for her hand and though
sho chose William she and Charles
always retained a strong affection for
one another. Of this feeling William
was fully cognizant, but he was never
jealous of his brother, and last
spring, on his deathbed, enjoined
upon them that they marry ns soon
after his demise as seemed fitting.

"Wo must continue and perfect,
by state and nation, the preservation
by uso of forests already publicly
owned; and wo must extend It to
other mountain forests more valu
able for the permnnent benefit of the
many than for tho temporary profit
of a few."
After a general discussion of tho
report ,the governors of several
states pledged themselves to cooper
ate wth the federal government in
any practicable schemo for tho con
servation of tho national forests.
Opening of Marshfleld's New

The Marshfield school board and
Superintendent F. E. Golden are'
making preliminary plans for a gen
eral celebration of Marshfleld's new
?50,000 high school building about
January 15. The new school which

try is rapidly nearlng completion and
It is hoped to have eveyrthing install
ed so that it will be ready for occu
pancy by the middle of next month.
While it has not been definitely
settled, it is proposed to have a short
program in the afternoon or even

Bnd musical program by an orches
tra. There will probably ,be a few
brief talks by Superintendent Golden,
members of the board and others who
have been closely identified with the
development of tho Marshfield pub
The entire building will be thrown
open, appropriately decorated and
lighted so that every one will have
ample opportunity to inspect the
handsome new edifice and rejoice

As near as can be stated now, the
new $75,000 Chandler hotel will be
completed and ready for business on
or about February 1. Manager La
Chance is making all his plans for
that date. The formal opening of
tho hotel will undoubtedly be made
