(Continued from pago 1.)
tho beginning. People all say: "We
never saw It in this fashion before."
Well, it's getting out that "Whirl
wind Dan" is here.
"What shall it profit a man if he
gains tho whole world and lose his
own soul?" This was the question
that Mr. Shannon raised last night
in tho tabernacle. Surely it is un
answerable. "Men are losing their
souls because of gold," said he,
"money is a good servant, but it is
certainly a hard master. Men aro
judged today by their financial
.standing. This is wrong rating. It
Is true that men aro all wrapped up
In real estate and getting a living.
They say, 'the world owes me a liv
ing' I tell you, you are are wrong.
You owe the world a life. What are
you living for anyway? What are
you saving up your money for, to
pay funeral expenses? I tell you,
what, there aro no pockets, in a
shroud. When you are about vp
die, why don't you call for the bank
er to bring your gold, let them bring
your deeds, your bonds and your
wealth and let it comfort you in
death. That's what you lived for.
"What shall it profit a man, Oh,
what shall it profit a man."
"Do you know what a soul costs?
You don't or you would not barter it
off so cheaply. I'll tell you that a
soul costs tho heart aches of the Son
of God. It cost him to hang on
the cross. It cost Him the bitter
cup in the garden. It cost Him the
heavy lashes laid on his bare back.
It cost Him tho cruel nails. It cost
Him the crown of thorns. It cost
Him the carrying the heavy cross
under which he fell seven times. It
cost Him shed blood. It cost Him
a broken heart, for that was the real
cause of his death. I tell you, oh,
"sinner that God blocks the way to
Hell by tho crimson cross. I will
add to tho cost of a soul, the bodies
of tho martyrs; which if piled would
make a mountain higher than the
Hymalayas. Their blood would
make a river as wide as the Ama
zon. I will add every dollar ex
pended to save men (this should not
bo mentioned), every tear, the ener
gy of the evangelist and I will lay
on top of all this his very soul! all
this for the redeeming of lost souls."
In tho closing prayer, Mr. Shan
non mentioned every public man in
town all the sailors and longshore
men, no one was omitted. It was a
remarkable prayer and revealed Mr.
Shannon's real Interest In all. -No
ono could have gone from the great
meeting last night feeling otherwise

Seeley & Anderson have reopened
their logging camp on the lower
river. Tho intention when they
closed down was to go on the upper
waters of the Coquille for the bal
ance of the season, but new arrange
ments have been made and1 they
started operations on a six-hundred
acre tract of timber at Seven Mile
Monday. They expect to put in about
12,000,000 feet of logs during the
coming season. The logging is being
done for the Lyons-Johnson Lumber
Company at Prosper and for the
Johnson Lumber Company just
above this city.
Last Saturday the little son of
Ralph Schroeder, living near Arago,
while playing with his dog was so
severely injured that several stitches
were necessary to dress his wounds.
In some manner while they were
playing one of the dog's teeth caught
inside the boy's mouth and the re
sult was that the entire cheek was
torn open and the lower lip was
also badly lacerated. No one was
present at the time of the accident
but those near seem to think the boy
and dog were merely playing and
that it was purely accidental. The
boy Is doing nicely and so serious
results aro apprehended.
The following marriage licenses

sweethearts of the members were in

was to establish a lodge of the Py
thian Sisters, and the fact that it
takes only 15 names on the petition
to organize such lodge, while 23

organization will be instituted and
that, right soon.

Coquille Physician In Collision On
The Coquille River.
Tho Coquille Sentinel says: "What
might have been a serious accident
occuned on tho river just abovo the
city dock Monday morning. The
Wolverine was coming down the riv
er to tho dock preparatory to start
ing on her regular run down the
river. Dr. Culln with his gasoline
boat was llng in the eddy just abovo
the dock. As tho Woheiino round
ed tho bend at the mill tho doctor
started across tho river. Ho miscal
culated the distance and tho speed at
which tho Wolverine was travoling
and tho result was a nasty collision
lu which his boat was badly stove up
near tho storn nnd camo very near
being capsized. Tho accident would
have beon far more serious had not
Captain Wlllnrd noticed tho small
boat through tho driving rain and
thrown his wheel hard to port thus
barely striking the smaller craft.
Tho repairs on tho doctor's craft aro
not completed and tho bont is not
yet In service,"
Myrtle Point Defeats Bandon In
In a hotly contested basket ball
game on which time was called with
a tie score the Myrtle Point high
school boys defeated the Bandon
high school team by a score of 12 to
10 before a crowded house at the
Hermann court last Friday evening.
The first half of the game was all in
favor of the home team, the score
being 7 to 3 when time was called.
Iu the latter half, however, the visit
ors gradually climbed up on the
home team's lead in a series of spir
ited plays that left the score at the
end of the time 10 to 10. The re
sult having been announced, the play
was continued for more than two
minutes with apparently even chan
ces between tho teams for breaking
the tie. Finally the winning basket
was thrown by Reed of tho home
team and pandemonium reigned for
a short time. Ernest Boak of Ban-
prise, tie was tne recipient of a
number of nice presents and the dav Phone 220-.T and our wagon will call
was an exceedingly enjoyable one for
all present. Although he is S3
years old, Mr. Gallier's mind Is clear
as eer and he is as active as many
men twenty or thirty years younger.
He looks ofter all his own business
affairs with as much accuracy as
ever, and takes much Interest In all
don refereed and gave unirormly sat
isfactory decisions. Grover Brown
was umpire. Both teams were
penalized several times on fouls. The
receipts at tho door were $64. 4S.
