Crane put* Oat Lights.
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

Tbe screen is contained in a spring

Grange Meeting.
There was a very enthusiastic and
well attended Grange meeting in
the M. W . A. Hall in this city last
Saturday. There were morning
and afternoon sessions and a nice
basket dinner served at noon. This
was tbe time for tbe annual elect­
ion, a full corps of officers being
elected for the ensuing year, and
five new members were initiated.
This organization of one of the
principal branches of tbe bone and
sinew of our country ia growing
very rapidly in favor in this valley,
and it begins to look as though
very few persons elligible to mem­
bership will be on the outside in a
very short time.

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
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.
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.
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.
