Mrs. Clegg, Promoter of the
Trip Sails For England—He
Prefers Natural Canyons.
Mrs. Frances Halmstrom received
a letter from her son Haldane yester
day stating that he and Mrs. Clegg,
who travelled by boat from the Snake
river in northeast Oregon to New
York City by boat had arrived there
on Sept. 15. He writes that Mrs.
Clegg is leaving at once for England
where her children reside, and that
he will leave for Coquille in a day
or two, going first to Washington, D.
C. and home by way of Portland.
Mrs. Clegg gave the boat and equip
ment which was used on that weeks-
long historic trip to a group of girl
scout mariners in New York.
From hto letter “Buzz” was not so
greatly impressed with New York, ex
cept by its size. He refers to the nar
row streets which are like canyons
with the skyscrapers on either side
and one can imagine he preferred the
granite walls of the Colorado or the
Snake river to the concrete, man
made walls which prevent the sun’s
rays in many places from ever touch

Coquille has experienced so fre-
quntly this summer that brought out
the juice. Sometime between noon
and 1:JO the thermometer registered
89 in the shade. That wasn’t the hot
test day of the year but it was proba
bly the most sultry. .
The above was put in type Tuesday
afternoon, but that day was not the
second highest in temperature of the
summer nor the most sultry. Yester
day’s record topped it a degree, the
thermometer registering 90, and it
was even more sultry than the day
House For $1800
The city council at its session Mon
day evening accepted the offer of
Rankin & Barton for the purchase of
the apartment house at the corner of
Seventh and Henry streets, across
from the Church of God. Their offer
was $1800 of which $400 was paid
down and the balance to be paid at
the rate of $25 a month. The city
already has $1,001.53 invested in the
property in taxes.
Clarence Barton stated yesterday
that he and Dr. J. D. Rankin intend
putting a new roof on the building,
remodeling the interior and otherwise
putting the three apartments in good
condition. They expect to have it
ready to rent in about 30 days.

council at its regular mid-monthly

Everett Seeley objected to the
measure, his contention being that the
