There arc few towns on the Pa
cilie Coast that have taken on more
general improvement during the
past year and a half than Cottage
Grove. The growth has not been
of u "rush" nature, but has been
steady and of substantial kind, l.ust
year some 75 dwellings were erected
here, which, based upon a value of
$500 many of them exceeding that
sum twice over would aggregate
an expenditure of $37,500. During
the first six months of this year
$18,500 have been expended iu im
provements, say nothing of the
street improvements, which aggre
gate $7,000. With last year as a
criterion it is fair to presume that
the improvements of the citv for
this year will equal and perhaps ex
ceed the sum. expended last year, as
the bulk of last year's improve
ments were made in the fall.
Cottage Grove has no boom on
never had any didn't want it, but
is growing year by year in a sub
stantial and gratifying manner.
Perhaps the most attractive and
important structure now under
way in tins city is the new Metho
dist church, which will be under
roof by the last of this wck. The
estimated cost of this building is
$3000, and it is said to be by far
the handsomest building of the
kind yet erected here. It is of
Gothic design, the foundation
overall being 60x64 lcct. The
auditorium will be 40x50 in the
clear. There will be two class
rooms 10x28 feet and one 10x24
feet. It will be heated by hot air
furnaces. The extreme height
from base to top of spiie will be 72
feet, while the main building will
be 24 feet high. The chinch will
be given a wood finish, varnished. I
Pews will be placed in the audi
torntai while chairs will be the
seats selected for the class rooms
1 he church will also be provided
with a modern and convenient
baptistry. Such improvements are
a credit to any city and the people
of Cottage Grove can certainly be
.roud of it.
