A great interest is being aroused
in favor of the good roads move­
ment throughout the state.
ple are beginning to realize that
we are away behind tbs times in
this respect and that good, per-
11 » uetit roads will aid more in the
developement ol the rural districts
than perhaps any other factor.
It has even been declared that
good wagon roads are now more
important than railroads; that rail­
roads are of little avail unless wa­
gon roads are built to serve as a
connection between the farms and
the railroad.

The literal y program given at
the school house Saturday evening
was a grand success, Notwith­
standing the highwater, the house
contained all that could be seated.
Some thought to avoid the mud bv
going in boats, which was all
right goiug over but before they
returned, a heavy fog had settled
over the water. The consequence
was, on returning, not being able
to see more than ten feet ahead of
them, they lost their bearing, and
must have gone in circles as they
were out more than an hour before
they finally found their way out by
following the edge of the marsh,
and by the aid of tops of fences,
“boating must have been fine on the
lake last night, for after we had got
home and had our icy feet wrapped
in blankets, and were sleeping the
sleep of the just, several of our
neighbois were out on the marsh
boat riding till the first small hours
of the Sabbath day.’’ Moral: It is
better to trust vour feet on old
terra firma.
Liquid hydrogen is by far the

times heavier. The only solid which
has so small density as to float upon
its surface is a piece of pith wood.—

With the prospect of again bav-
! ing two mills running in the near
future the business prospects for
Coquille are already much brighter.
However, we should not be satis­
fied with securing these business
enterprises alone. Other business
concerns may be secured which will
be as great a benefit to the growth
and development of the city as
those already here if we offer a lit­
tle encouragement and assistance in
getting a start. Now that the hall
has started to roll let everybody
get in and push.

In constructing the power trans­
mission line from the Cauvery falls
to the Kolar gold mines, in Mysore,
India, which was recently complet­
ed, (he American engineers employ­
ed to do the work had to deal with
some uncommon problems. The
line, ninety-two miles long, is car­
ried on lofty poles through the jun­
gle. Here the -depredations of
white ants and wild elephants had
to be prevented. The ants attacked
the poles, and the elephants pulled
at the wires. Iron sockets seven
feet high were found to be effective
against the ants, and after careful
measurements of the highest reach
of the elephants’ trunks the wires
were strung at a safe elevation.

Mrs. Bradley Martin has offended
good form on the other side by
wearing too many jewels. At her
place in the highlands of Scotland
she gave a hall recently, and society
people of the neighborhood were
abundantly in attendance. It is the
almost invariable custom to dress
plainly at country places of that
sort, so most of the women wore
simple muslins, but the hostess re­
ceived in a blaze of brilliants. She
wore all her magnificent pieces, and,
to quote the British paper, she had
“yards of diamond chains.” Criti­
cism of the American hostess has
been general because of what is
called “a very vulgar display.”
