Little debts multiply with marvelous rapidity, and before

ably determine ' the winners 'of the
grand prizes. Don't let this chance

Walks Along the Shore ;
Good hikers frequently make
the trip afoot down South Beach
to Seal Rocks. j More ease-loving
Individuals, after crossing the bay,
take the Waldport stage.- At Seal
Rocks lunch Is spread on the flat
water-worn rocks in sight of the
restless tide that during winter
storms dashes the Spume and
spray of the waves high over Hay
Stack Rock, the Needles, and the
Giant's Causeway. A few miles
southward ,is the "town of Wald
port on Alsea bay.
One of the favorite walks from
Newport is the trip to Yaqulna
Head lighthouse. ' In late summer
you wilP find plenty of huckle
berries . a few hundred rods back
from the beach Agate Beach, one
of Yaqulna Bay's most beautiful
resorts, is only a few minutes'
walk from the lighthouse. The
lighthouse U; built at the extreme
edge ofa sea-worn bastaltlc cliff
that Juts out into the ocean. Vis
itors are " welcome and the view
from the lofty tower weir repays
one for the trip. ' Below the light
house you will see on the rocks a
great variety of sea life. Here
are the yellow-brown shapes of
the star fish outlined on the black
sea-washed rocks. Here, too, are
sea roses7sea urchins, barnacles,
jelly fish, and mussels with their
blue-black shiny shells, and baby
crabs scuttling around in the shal
low pools. 7 7 .
- Beyond the lighthouse you can
see Cape Foulweather. Trips are
often made by; the tireless young
folks to Schooner Point, and fur
ther np the coast to Otter Rocks.
Gull Rock, the Devil's well, and
the Devil's Punchbowl, all famous

sights on this trip. v The ; Devil's
Punchbowl is a sea-worn cave
with an orifice In the top through
which, when the tide is highland
there .Is a landward breeee, the
water Is hurled high into the air.
It looks like some submarine gey
ter and. as the milk-white waters
rush down the black sides of the
rock, :"thef boulders look like black
velvet with au edging of delicate
lace. Agate hunters go down on
to the beach-near the Devil's
Punchbowl when the tide is Out
and find beautiful moss agates..
