head out thinking up new excuses
In roply to lotlors from my cred

merchant whoso soiling force now
numbers well up in tho hundreds.
"And it was," ho goos on to say,
"because I, Ilka many othor mer

working out pluns to gut tho peo

QUESTION' I'OR THE DAY.
And what has becomo of tho old
fashioned pewter cruett containing
salt, popper, vluegur and mustard
bottles that used to stand In the
center of tho table?
"Off with the old lovo and on with
tho now," Is so apt an adngo that
ofton credit Is overlooked whoro
credit Is due. Tho first toot of
tho first train to Coos Hay swept
from mind almost In an instant the
fact that thoro ever existed any
other mode of getting In and out
of tho hitherto "Hermit Kingdom."
With tho coming of tho railroad,
tho beach stages simultaneously be
came toltcs of tho past.
Hut they "have played on Import
ant part, and have played it ns
host they could, .in bringing Coos
Hay into tho limelight.
Nowhoro olso in tho United States
perhaps has a section ns largo as
Coos county flourished as It has
without tho aid of steam tralii3.
Tlmo and agnln visitors have gono
away from hero, taking with them
wlord and exciting talcs of how thoy
'had been way off down to Coos
Hay on a stago and enmo back allvo"
and thereafter liavo recounted nd

Hut shortly nfter tho now run
was started, the old steamer Juneau
was bought for service on tho Ump-
0.ua. Before this It had boon run
ning on the Coqultlo and Coos Hay
mid another speed notch was added
to tho lino.
Up until 1897 this trl-wedkly
service persisted, but business then I
had Increased so that the stago
