We are at the hegining of another
school year and are anxious to
make it of the most possible benefit
to the students ol the Coquille
High School. To tbis end we solicit
your co-operation in carrying out
the plans of the year.
The course we have mapped out
for our students this year is a strong
The week will be heavy as'
we believe it should be. The great
er the effort put forth by each in
dividual student, the greater will
be the benefit which he will derive
from the year’s work.
In order ti do well the work laid
out in a regular high school course,
the students should do from two to
four hours home study each day.
Unless you know that your boy or
girl is doing this home work, you
will realize that he is getting but a
small part of the benefit the school
can give him, and that he will be

Parties, hall, pictures shows and
other aflfaiis that take the boys and

to the efifectivetiveuess of their work
In seeing to it that the students
under your control take part in
those affairs only on Friday or Sat

Six of the chief officers ol the corporations intereste d in the con
struction of the Willamette Pacific Railway from Eugene to Coos Bav
were in Marshfield last Friday, having come in on a tour ol iuspection
over the line. The party consisted G. W. Volckman, vice president and
general manager for McArthur Brothers and Perks Co.; F. C. Hitchcock,
vice president and manager oi the United States branch of theCompany;
II P Hoey, resident engineer of the Southern Pacific and in charge o1
all work in Ore^oh; Johnson P Porter, of Porter Bros., who is in charge
of the real construction work on the line; W. R. Fountaine, the engin
eer who is overseAng the work for the Southern Pacific; Thomas Dix
on, supervising engineer for the company.
In interviews with the Marshfield papers, these gentlemen gave as
surance that the line would be completed to Coos Bay next year. Mr.
Hitchcock said lli-t there was no question whatever but the road would
be completed without interruption The MacArthur Bros, and Perks
company have the contract to complete the road, and the Southern Pa
cific is even now asking for more hurry on the job He said that work
will Ire prosecuted all winter at this end of the line, although not so
many men would be employed after bad weather interferes with the dirt
grading. Regular 1 Bains will be operating from Eugene to tidewater on
the Siuslaw some tipie next spring. The Wind creek tunnel on the line,
on which work will continue all winter, will be completed in ten or eleven
months. None of these men would express au opinion as to when the
line will be extended south irom Coos Bay-
