Engine Runs Aw ay.
On Saturday the most serious
accident that has ever occured to
machinery on that road, happened
ou the Smith-Powers line which
runs up CuoniDgham creek.
gineer Win. Stoddard who has been
driving “ Shay” No. 4 was just
starting out from the upper end of
the road with his engine and one
heavily loaded car. The point from
which be started was at the top of
a very steep decline and as soon as
the start was made the engine
seemed to act strangely. It started
almost with a leap, aDd nothing
Mr. Stoddard could do seemed to
have any effect on the machine.
The engine had two sets of air
brakes, one direct to the traction
wheels, and one for the carB, but
neither seemed to have any effect

Fruit Growers Association
The stockholders of the Coquille
Valley Fruit Growers’ Association

business transacted the past season,
and it was agreed that such settle
ment should be made by giving
each shipper proportionate returns
on each box of fruit shipped.
seems that one shipment that should
amount to about $1,600 has given
no returns, and if this could be col
lected the growers would receive
very fair results for the season’s
business, but a settlement without
this will greatly reduce the profits.
The latter end of the season proved
profitable than the be
ginning, the Association having
sent a representative to the market
to look after the interests,and if this
method had been followed right
through, there is no doubt but that
the AsBsociation can finally work
out a syatem that will bring results
to its membeis, if the members do
not become discouraged. It is per
tain that by standing together they
can get better results than by each
one acting separately, otherwise
there is nothing in the statement
that "in union there is strength,”
and those who are anxious for the
development of this section ns a
fruit-growing country would be
glad to see the members of the As
sociation remain true to it and make
a larger profit the coming season.—

‘‘Tag Day,” under the manage
ment of the Coquille Athletic Club,
proved a great financial success, a«
well as one of amusement and
merrymaking. As was announced
an effort was made to raise money
to pay the balance due on the lots
purchased by the Coquille Library
Association, and on Friday morning
a large number of ladies and girls
appeared on the streets with tagB
which were disposed of at ten cents
each in great numbers.

The largest contributions were made
through the sale of tags and the

were a few side shows which con

were the “ Dime,” the “ Scenic,” an
