Mr. and Mrs. M. C Miller of Dora
are In Marshfield visiting their sister
Mrs. Bennett Swanton. Mr. Miller
in speaking of the road question said
that the roads between Brewster
valley and Marshfield are in fine
condition, also the road from Co
quille to Fairview. He said, how
ever, he believed the taxpayers of
Coos county would make a big mis
take if they decided to use the mon
ey received from the bonding of the
county for the
Roseburg road, and gives his rea
sons among others as follows:
First— The distance from Marsh
field to Roseburg is approximately
65 miles from navigable waters of
Coos Bay to Roseburg 55 miles and
the distance from Myrtle Point to
Roseburg is 65 miles, so that Coos
Bay people going to Roseburg, if
the Myrtle Point road was adopted,
would have to travel 30 miles to
Myrtle Point, and would then be
just as far from Roseburg as when
they left Marshfield. The Coquille
and Bandon people would also have
14 miles added to their distance to
Roseburg, for the reason that the
distance from Coquille to the Coos
Bay wagon road is only 9 miles, and
from point of intersection at Fair-
view to Roseburg is 51 miles.
Second— a belter grade can be ob
tained over the mountain on the
Coos Eay wagon road, commonly
referred to as the Middle section,
than can be obtained over the Cam
as mountain which is on the Myrtle
Point road, particularly on the Rose
burg side. There can never be a
good grade obtained down that,
mountain, it is too steep, whereas
on the Roseburg side of the Coos
Bay wagon road a good grade can
be obtained on both sides of the
mountain. It is only a question of
Third— A much bettei country
will be tapped by the Coos Bay wag
on road than will be reached by the
Myrtle Point-Roseburg road. He
also said the question of the build
ing of the road should be deter
mined upon utility and the useful
ness of the road rather than that of
temporary expediency, and that the
road should be built lor the best citi
zens and taxpayers of Coos county,
and to persons who really desire to
use the road, and that if the best
grade aud the shortest route can be
obtained on the Coos Bay wagon
road, then that certainly the Coos
Bay wagon road is entitled to the
From these figures the Marshfield
people would save 30 miles, the Co
quille people 14 miles, and the Myr
tle Point people five miles if the
Coos Bay wagon road were adopted
as the main thoroughfare. The Myr
tle Point people, it is true, would
have to put in good condition the
road up the north fork of the Co
quille river, and the Coquille people
would have to maintain nine miles
of road to the Coos Bay wagon road
where it intersects the same at Fair-
view, but these roads would pay for
themselves by enabling the farmers
residing in these respective districts
to come to these respective towns,
and would be a necessary invest
ment anyhow, and will have to be
done, and are thoroughfares that
must be maintained.
Brewster valley has some of the
choicest farming land in Oregon,
and is one of the prettiest summer
resorts on the Pacific Coast. The
natural scenic beauty along the Coos
Bay wagon road will always be an
attraction to tourists. In short the
Coos Bay wagon road affords those
using the same the shortest distance
to Roseburg, better grades, richer
farming districts tapped, and the
ttaveler sees some of the most pict
uresque scenery on the coast, which
in itself, if thg conditions are equal,
should be decisive in favor of the
Coos Bay wagon road.— The Rec

The Sunday Oregonian of last
week devotes a page to an illus
trated write-up of Alice Joyce, the
most beautiful aud least taleDted of
moving picture actresses. In the
course of the article it is explained
that motion picture players don’t
have press agents to boost them;
but if Alice Joyce hasn't a press a-
gent. and a good one, then there
are no snakes. It is treely conced
ed right here that she is a beauty
in her way, but if she has ever done
a piece of real acting since she en
tered the business it has not been
our good fortune to see it. She is
undoubtedly a Dice girl and good
to her mother, but when she is
classed with the picture girls who
can really act, it is a great injustice
to them. However, one mystery
is solved. The first picture in
which she was seen by the writer,
some years ago, was an elopement
story, and “ Sweet Alice” appeared
on horseback. From the expres
sion which rested on her beautiful
features during ihe horseback stunt,
we were convinced at the time, and
have always contended, thafr she
had been eating something that
didn’ t agree with her. The Ore-
gdhian write-up gives the real ex
planation, as follows: “ The first
horseback film we put her into— it
was almost her first experience in
moving pictures by the way— she
was so sore and used up the next
day that I had a hard time getting
her not to give up the motion pic
ture business right then and there.”
So it wasn’t her stomach that was
hurting her, after all; it was the
saddle. Anyway, that is perhaps
the only time she ever showed a
well defined and unmistakable ex
pression on her face in a picture;
and no one could make any mis
take that time. The poor girl was
really suffering, and not all the di
rectors in the Kalem company
could get her to look'aAthough She
enjoyed the elopement-
