Body Found.
The finding of the body of Eddie
Hayden, the ntne-year-old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Chrs. Hayden of
North Bend, under the wharf near
the old mill, in old North Bend
this morning by Carl Hayes, was
the sad sequil of a two day, saerch.
Eddie Hayden mysterously dis­
appeared last Thesday afternoon.
He was engaged in hauling kindl­
ing from the mill to his home. He
had made one or two trips, the last
one about four o’clock when he was
seen by Robert McCann foreman
who with the lad’s mother was the
last person to see hem alive. When
he did not return, search was made
for him, the sled with its little load
of wood was found but no trace of
the missing boy. At first, it was
thought be might|have gone to camp
No. 2 where his sister, Mrs. Andrew
Collon lives and where he knew
some small boys of the Hunter fam­
ily. Word was sent to them yester­
day and Mr. Collon arrived in North
Bend last Digbt to say he had not
been seen there. This morning the
search was renewed with redoubled
vigor and a large number of search­
ers turned out for the little fellow
was a general favorite. The dis­
covery of the body in the bay ended
the|searcb. How he fell into the
bay can only be surmrised.

Center of Population.
State Fair Exhibit
The center of the population of
the united States, as enumertted in
tbe census of 1910, is four and one-
half miles Booth of Unionville,
Monroe county, Indiana. In the
last decade it moved westward thir­
ty-one miles from a point six miles
southeast of Columbus, Ind,
The announcement was made by
the census bursau on the bases of
the official computation of tbe cen­
ter of the population made by
Charles S. Sloane, the geographer
of tbe bureau.
The figures of the geographer
show not only that tbe march of
population is still westward, but
that there has been acceleration of
that movemnt over tbe record of the
decade between I860 and 1900.
The center of population during the
the decade moved westward only
fourteen railea. The cause of the
acceleration of the westward trend

increase of population in the Pacifie
and southwestern states,
The following excerpt
a letter received by F. B. Tichenor,
from Frank Meredith Secretary of
tbe Oregon State Board of Agricul­
ture is self explanatory:
I am in receipt of an article, an­
nouncing the intmion ol Coos Coun­
ty to make an exhibit at the forth­
coming Fair, for which please ac­
cept my thanks. We highly ap­
preciate the good work you have
done for yourself iu behalf of an ex­
hibit. I note in tbe article in ques­
tion a request for anyone having a
product of the county worthy of ex­
hibiting to leave same with the
Chamber of Commerce. In this
way they may be able to get togeth­
er a lairly good exhibit, but “ What
is everybody’s business is no body’s
business.” For that reason I think
that it would be money well invest­
ed if the anthorites would hire some
competent person to go out among
the farmers and procure the very
best exhibits possible. I refer more
particularly to grains aud grasses.
* know, form what I have heard
that CoosCunty can make the other
counties sit up and take notice if
she will only collect some ot the
best of her products.”
