Improvements Will Make the Mill
One of Most Modern of Kind
on the Coast
The Cottage Grove Manufacturing
company has commenced extensive im
proveuents to its plant. The additions
to the main building on the south and
east have been torn away and the main
building will lie extended to take in this
extra ground space. All the machinery
will be moved and rearranged and suf­
ficient new machinery added to make
the plant one of the most modern of its
kind on the coast. All machinery will
be electrically driven. The company al­
ready has on hand orders to keep it
busy several months and Manager B. R.
Smith thinks that work on these can
be started within three weeks.
C. A. Stevens, of Oakland, who has
become interested iu the company, will
have charge of the manufacturing end
of the business.
The additions at the north end of the
main building will be left until the
coming fall, when they, too, will be re­
moved and the main building again ex­
tended. A modern office and store room
will occupy the south end of the build-
iug when remodeled.
County Commissioner Spencer, who
was in the city this week, says that he
expects to put a crew of men to work
next week getting out the rock for the
Silk Creek road and that the court will
take chances on there being money with
which to spread tbe rock. This work
was held up by doubt as to whether the
special tax could be collected. Most of
the residents have paid the first half
without protest and it is thought likely
that the full amount will be collected
and the work completed this year.
Pig Tail Brings $5.30; Squeal. $3.50.

which tells of a pig sold there for war

over *400. The live animal was sold
several times, afterwards butchered and
the meat sold. The tail brought *5.30
und the squeal, which was wrapped in a

this season and wherever given has
made a decided hit. The setting is spec­

to the characters and surroundings. The
whole entertainment is decidedly d if­
ferent from anything ever featured in
Cottage Grove and will be the most stu­
pendous of the many high class enter­
tainments which have been given by
the Enterpean club.
The dates are Wednesday and Thurs­

will be 25 cents and all receipts above
