Touching the probable cost of the
proposed bridge at this place, consider­
able estimating of a very liberal char­
acter seems to have been done at some
time, and the people here have an im­
pression that the expense would be
considerable in excess of $20,000. Our
esteemed contemporary states that the
cost of a bridge here over one at Cedar
Point "might mean the expenditure of
as much as $15,000.” In this connec­
tion considerable interest attaches to a
newspaper clipping which W. L. Kist-
ner has preset ved and which was shown
the Herald man by A. J. Sherwood. It
gives a view of the bridge recently
completed, across the Cowlitz river at
Kelso, Wash. By the figures given
the bridge is 900 feet long; towers 90
feet in height; draw 100 feet; suspen­
sion span 300 feet -and cost $17,000.
The half tone view of the bridge indi­
cates that the situation is very much
like that of the proposed bridge at this
place, and there seems no good reason
why the one here should cost any more.
With the effort of the Sentinel to in­
duce our people to take active steps to
insure that the bridge will be built at
Coquille, however, the Herald is heart­
ily in sympathy.

The storm that visited this part of
the country Saturday night is said to
be one of the hardest ever experienced
here. From the various reports that
have come in the blow seems to have
been general on the Washington and
Oregon coast and is said to have shifted
south on Sunday.
One death, that of Oscar Johnson, a
sailor on the steam schooner Newburg,
which put into Coos Bay Sunday, is re­
ported as a result of the storm.
The Newburg was from San Fran­
cisco and coming north In ballast. The
storm sprung up about 11:30 Saturday
night, while the vessel was off Coos
Bay, and it was in trying to save the
lifeboats from the storm that Johnson
was lost. No one saw the accident.
Considerable damage was done to the
boat and she came into the bay for re­
The Coos and Curry Telephone com­
pany were the heaviest sufferers as far
as the destruction of property was con­
cerned. Every line connecting Coquille
with other towns went down during
Saturday night and until r early noon
Sunday Coquille was isolated, and had
no communication with county or out­
side towns. Reports from the Bay in­
dicate that the damage to the telephone
lines there was as bad or worse than
At Bandon the show windows of the
business houses seemed to get the
worst of it, three large ones being
broken by the terrific wind. At Myrtle
Point it is reported that some houses
that were in the course of construction
were blown down.
Coquille suffered no damage as far as
is known although the wind here Sun-
d *y morning was blowing a gale.
The story of the storm at sea as re­
lated by Captain Masten of the New­
burg, is given by the Coos Bay Times
as follows:
A stiff breeze had prevailed through­
out Saturday afternoon and evening,
but nothing worse than is to be expect­
ed off the coast at this time of the
year. However, a rapidly falling glass
caused some anxiety and after dark­
ness set in, the breeze freshened con­
siderably, until by 9 p. m. it had reach­
ed the proportions of a gale. But the
worst was yet to come, and at 10
o’clock Captain Masten realized he was
in for a storm which would tax his skill
as a navigator to the utmost. The
gale was from the southeast, and he
estimates that its speed was nearly 90
miles an hour between 10 p. m. and
midnight. All hands were ordered on
deck and each was allotted his task in
an effort to make everything fast be­

Oscar Johnson, aged thirty, a Finn,
who was shipped on llie Newburg at
fsan Francisco for this trip to Coos Hay,
where the vessel was to load lumber at
the Smith mill. Owing to the heavy
wind and the great volume of spray
which continually swept the vessel,
every man had to look out for himself,
and consequently had very little oppor­
tunity to ascertain how it went with
his neighbor. Several big green seas
struck the vessel and one of the boats
was badly damaged, while another was
stove in.
As the Newburg was practically in
ballast she made heavier going of the
storm than might have been the case
if she had carried cargo, and when a
big sea struck her amidships, one of
her guards was badly sprung, while the
deck was continually awash as one
wave followed another theentire length
of the vessel.
M odern W a r Cost G reat
war approximate The
difference of $12,OKI,000,000 between
these borrowings and the war’s cost
consists partly in additional taxes, but
chiefly in inflation of currency and in
temporary advances.
England, as
hanker for the entente, has borrowed
more than the war has cost it, but a
goodly share of its borrowing has
financed Russia and several of the small
nations. It defrays a larger part of
Us expense for war from taxes than
any other country does.
Germany appears to have u deficit of
more than $2,000,000,000, but the loans
and circulation of its national bank
have increased nearly twice that
amount, suggesting one source from
which the deficit may be retrieved.
Austria-Hungary apparently is $2,400,-
000,000 in debt permanently for the
war, but very little is known about Us
provisional system of finance. Russia
lags furthest behind in permanent pro­
vision for its costs of war, the reported
loans and the estimated expenditures
for war diverging by $3,000,000,000.
The war’s daily cost reached a max­
imum months ago and has since re­
mained stationary, except that Italy re­
ports a considerable decrease. It ap­
proximates $104,600,000 daily and costs
the entente about twice as much as it
costs the Teutonic powers and their
allies. The national debts of the bel­
ligerents have grown from $27,000,000,-
000 to $77,500,000,000. Can they ever
be paid?—Spokesman-Review.

Lim ited Derailed
The Coos Bay Limited, south bound,
was derailed between here and Myrtle
Point Wednesday night when it ran on­
to a cow sleeping on the track. The ac­
cident occurred near the rock quarry.
The engine and the baggage car were
derailed and the engine turned nearly
crosswise on the track.
The accident did not cause any
injury to the passengers who for
an instant were somewhat fright­
ened at the terrific squeaking of
the brakes and the sudden jerky stop
that was made. W. Taylor Jones, the
superintendent at Marshfield immedi­
ately dispatched a work train with a
number of men to clear the track. He
also ordered automobiles from Myrtle
Point to take the passengers on to that
city, which was done with very little
delay or discomfort.
The crew worked all night getting
the train back on the track, and repair­
ing the small amrunt of damage done
to the equipment.
This delayed the train about three
hours on its north bound trip.
This is the first accident that has
happened, even during the operation

districts are providing more liberally

School districts that have heretofore
been backward to a marked degree are
now going forward with special levies
and those that have been voting them
before are increasing them.

Blind S tudent Invents
Psychology “Lab.” Device
Blindness is a fearful affliction, but
that it need not cut off entirely the
usefulness of the victim has been dem­
onstrated by Thomas Cutsforth, of
Riddle, Or., who has completed an ap­
paratus for testing the comparative
ability of the blind to learn. Mr. Cuts­
forth is one of two blind students at
the State University.
By using Mr. Cutforth’s device, an
instructor may determine what method
of presenting study material is best
suited to the individual blind student.
The apparatus is a box four inches
wide, eight inches long and four inches
deep. Under the movable top, a belt
of canvas run, under two rollers, one
at each end. By turning a handle on
the outside of the box, the canvas can
e made to revolve. Around the rollers
and on top of the canvas, is fastened a
strip of paper on which are words in
the dots of the alphabet for the blind.
In the top of the box is an opening one
by two and one-half inches, with slant­
ing edges. Through this opening a
section of the paper is exposed. In
feeling the print through the aperture
as th« handle is turned, the fingers of
the student rest on a crosspiece thet
gives the paper a solid background.
Words can thus be presented at vary­
ing speeds. Tests are given to deter­
mine how quickly the subject can ac­
quire a lesson from the sense of touch
only; then a test to see if the speed is
increased when the instructor speaks
the words while the student is feeling
the impression on the paper; then a
combination of paper, instructor's
prompting, and repetition by the stu­
dent after the instructor.
"The box makes possible experiments
to show the idiosyncrasies of any blind
learner,” said Dr. R. H. Wheeler, in­
structor in psychology. “This is not
the only contribution of Mr. Cutsforth.
He has discovered illusions of the blind
and has done research work in dreams
of the blind, ilia is, indeed, some of
the best work that has been done in
this phase of psychology.”
Leslie Blades, of San Dimas, Cal.,
the other blind student, has submitted
a thesis on the problem of the best ways
to present study material to the blind.
The work of the two men in this de­
partment is ultimately to be published.
Saw the Big P icture
S. E. Henderson, city engineer, ten­
dered his resignation to the city coun­
cil at its regular meeting last night.
Mr. and Mrs. Henderson intend to
leave tomorrow or next day for Joplin,
Missouri, where he is interested in zinc
mining. It is understood that the peo­
ple he is associated with there have
extensive holdings in zinc properties.
A great deal of street improvement
has been done under the supervision of
Mr. Henderson here during the last
year and without exception the work
has been performed in a satisfactory
manner as was shown by the action of
the council last night. Councilman M.
O. Hawkins was appointed a committee
of one to draft a resolution, in behalf
of the council, expressing their regret
at the departure of Mr. Henderson and
setting forth the satisfactory manner
in which be has always performed his
duties as city engineer, and the confi­
dence and trust which the council re­
posed in him.
The council authorized the Fire Com­
mittee to order 500 feet of three-inch
fire hose from the American Rubber
Manufacturing company, of California,
at a contract price of one dollar per
foot. The fire department at present
has on hand 900 feet of hose that is
suitable for use in case of fire and this
was deemed insufficient. The new hose
will increase the total to 1400 feet.

Price R em arkably Low
If any one in Coquille is under the
impression that the prices for “The
Birth of a Nation” are high, he is earn­
estly exhorted to “come out of it.”
The fact is that prices asked on this
tour of Coos county are really surpris­
ingly low, considering the small field
and the expense of bringing the attrac­
tion here. Some of our people have
seen the picture elsewhere and we have
heard of no one who has seen it for less
than 75 cents, at a matinee. One per­
son mentions paying $1.00 for a spat in
the fifth gallery of a Los Angeles thea­
ter. The Scenic manager gets so small
a [«rcentage of the receipts that it is
no object for him to deceive his pa­
trons. But he is presenting absolutely
the greatest production ever attempted
in the line of dramatic, spectacular,
historical and educational entertain­
ment; he wants every person to under­
stand what an opportunity is presented,
that no one may fail to grasp it and
then to feel regret when it is too late.
