Myrtle Poiot was without electrio lights Monday night on account of u very singular accident happening between the power plant at John son’s mill and that city. Early in the evening the lights went out, and nothing that the management of the plant could do would cause them to burn, and upon an investigation yesterday morning by W. L. Mast, it was discovered that a large crane bad flown against the wires with such force and in such a manner aa to throw one wire across the other, forming a short circuit. Mr. Mast found the bird still tangled among tbe wires and pretty thoroughly cooked. A G ood Patent. L. 8 . Martin, of this city, ia the patentee of a window screen which is a great convenience for tbe home, for which be is selling patent rights. Tbe screen is contained in a spring roller, somewhat on tbs principle of the late improved blind, with tbe end attached to the lower part of the lower sash, and the upper part of the upper sash, so that when the lower is raised, or the upper dropped, they are followed by the screen, and when returned to their place the screen is rolled into its case out of sight. It is certainly a very neat and convenient invention, and should adorn all kitchen win dows. A New Garage. Messrs. C. E. VanMarter, of this city, and M. D. Sherrard, at present a machinist at tbe big Smith mill at Marshfield, under the firm style of the Coquille Electric Supply Co., are preparing to do business in the automobile line next season. Their drill press, shaper and some small bench tools have already arrived in Marshfield, and their lathe is ex pected on the next Breakwater. A good location has been secured and in due time all will be in readiness to do all kinds of repair work in their line, which, we understand, will not be wholly confined to automobile work, but will include fine repairwork of all kinds of light machinery.

The foot ball game played Sun day on tbe Coquille gridiron was a decided victory for our local team. The game was started with a nice kick-off made by Dr. Johnson of the visiting team, to Captain Gt imes, who was downed before he made any yardage. The first down Howell was rushed through the line for about 5 yards. Tbe second down F ox carried the pig skin around left end and down the field for about 30 yards. The third down Johnson made about 23 yards on a round end play which brought tbe team near the goal. The tout tb down Howell made another of those famous line bucks, but this time the Myrtle Point boys held tbe line so well that Coquille lost three yards. The fifth down which, was about 5 minutes from the time the game was called, Captain Grimes made a touchdown on a take quarter. Then Coquille kicked off to Myr tle Point, but they made no gains worth mentioning, as Carey, the Coquille center; invariably hur dled their line and caught their quarter back before he could pass the ball. Once Coquille was put back 25 yards for being off side, and Myrtle Point was also put back for tbe same offense. The last halt consisted chiefly of punts and forward passes. John son o f the Coquille team made a touchdown on a round end play. He and F ox both made large gains nearly every time they carried the ball. Howell made one fine round end play, on which he gained some 25 yards in spite of the fact he was carrying and dragging about two- thirds o f each team. Captain Grimes deserves much credit for the way in which he handled his team, showing great presence of mind, even during the most exciting times. Wilson, Shoupe, and Nosier, as well as other Coquille boys, deserve men tion for the way in which they formed interference, held the line and tackled. Myrtle Point put up a good game considering the practice which they had- They must be given credit for same good playing. Dr. Johnson handled his team well, and Spires did some excellent work in tackling the half backs before they could get started with the ball. Rose proved to be wide awake and carried out his part ol the forward, though he tackled a little high on several occasions. Jack Hannis played full back in a manner that proves th it be knows the game, though lie could not make much gain on line bucks, as be was somewhat outweighted. We are booked for and expect to wit ness several good games before the end of the season. M E Eight Patterns to Choose from. Only One to a Customer........
