THE LENGTH OK THE SESSION Most everybody will agree that a really hard job is that of doing nothing, aud this is the task that has been confrontiug members of the House of Representatives most cl the time since last March. Rep resentative Fowler of Illinois e x presses the Situation: “ We came here before the golden dandelions were born, or the ¿¡luggish snakes had left their winter dens. We were here when the fair bosom of nature begau to swell into beauty and activity, and hy the aid and en couragement ot sunshine and rain we have seen that beauty and activ ity develop into a bountiful crop.” The sole excuse of the four hun dred and thirty five Members of the House of Representatives for hang ing about Washington tor months has been to be on hand when the currency bill should come back Irom the Senate, and since this has been mostly a wasted effort the wise men on the Capitol hill, who have stayed constantly on the job, are lamenting the fact that they did not go home to help with the threshing.

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 Myrtle Point- 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 surveying. Third— A much bettei country will be tapped by the Coos Bay wag on road than will be reached by the THE S 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 preference. 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 ord.

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.
