And yestereve, at vesper tide; the peaceful world no si und
Emitted to disturb the hush; memories thronged around—
As there before the open fire, that flamed and flared and died,
You came to me from out the still and rested by my siae.
Deep, wide and wistful were your eyes; soft was your voice and low;
Tender your touch upon my cheek, as winds of spring that blow
So gently from their hidden bower and fan the fevered brow
With light divinely perfumed breath from many a flowering bough.
For that sweet hour just mine alone—a rarer love you gave
Than any 1 had dreamed could be, and one that knew no grave.
The crumbling brands grow cold and gray; dim twilight turns to dark—
Rest, Dream Girl mine, within my arms, rest, dearest one, and hark;
And let tnis wildly pulsing heart, that beats for you alone.
My fondest vow of tenderest love, repeat in earnest tone.
All woman can, you give to me—this vesper hour sublime
Will live, and ever live again, until the end of time.
So, as each twilight greets its dark, and each their vows renew—
To this, our hour, shall 1 return; to this, our hour,—and you.

Let no one be deceived by the idea that the “ prepar­
edness” propaganda has been carried on so persistently
for the past few years from motives of real patriotism,
except in scattering instances. There were millions in it
and there was money behind it; therefore our arms and
munition makers have been more than willing to place a
few dollars where they would do the most good. It has
been “ business” to do so—but it was not patriotism.
When Senator Lane and his associates resorted to the
filibuster to put a spoke in the wheel of those who were
trying to push us into actual warfare, he stepped on the
toes of those who could see more billions almost within
their grasp. Therefore, he is a “ traitor.” Think so if
you like; we don’t.

Spring is here, despite all appearances to the contra­
ry, and it is the approved time for the poet to begin in­
dulging in poetry of the, “ nature tries earth if she be in
tune” strain, and for the editor to reprieve himself for all
past shortcomings by devoting, in good orthodox style,
several columns to the potential beauty of the particular
hamlet whose activities he is supposed to record. “ The
City Beautiful” is an approved term; and, with this justi­
fication for our action, we will proceed.
The street improvement work, th at has been done in
Coquille during the past year, has resulted in many blocks
of parking being constructed. It was not the intention of
the council and the engineers that this ground should be
allowed to grow up to grass and weeds, to be cut off with
a scythe when it is ripe enough for hay. Such a state­
ment seems superfluous; yet that is exactly what was
done with many of the park strips last summer. A street,
on which the parking receives this kind of treatment, pre­
sents an appearance of neglect and slovenliness; while the
same street, with the park strips converted into closely
cropped and well tended lawns” makes a most pleasant
impression upon the visitor and instills into the lives of
residents along that street a feeling of assurance and
pride, similar to that possessed by the well dressed man.
Ready excuses are always forthcoming from the man
who neglects his parkings; but they should not be more
acceptable than those of one who is careless about his per­
sonal appearance. It is up to the owners of the property
on the streets th at have been recently improved whether
Coquille shall present the appearance of a neglected farm,
with grass growing in every fence corner, or whether it
shall be deserving of the term “ The City Beautiful.” —R.

To the City Officials of Coquille:
I wish to advise that one of your par­
ties appeared at my place of business
with a complaint that some one had no­
tified one of your parties that I had run
over or backed over your cement side­
walk in the north part of town, the
other day. It might be so; but it was
not my intention to violate the city or­
dinance. But your streets or boule­
vards, as you call them—are so nar­
row that it is impossible for a rig to
turn around. They might be wide
enough for a wheelbarrow merchant (as
they are called in other cities) to turn
around with his wheelbarrow.
Now about the ordinances, as you call
them: 1 have seen a great many viola­
tions of the city ordinances the past two
years that I have been here. Now, for
example, you can take a look atj the
sidewalks down Front street, but there
is nothing said about it if they dump
the big oil tanks down and over them,
but they are excused because maybe
they belong t o ---- . But if an outsider
gets in to try to help to improve the
city, however little his offense is, th »
arc ready to kick. 1 don't think I did
any harm to your city's walks. If they
can't stand the weight of a light buggy
wheel, I feel sorry for the property
owners—to have to pay for a walk of
that kind.
Now about your narrow streets:
When you let your contracts you figure
to improve the streets for miles around
in one season. They don't do as other
cities do, lay in no >re than they can
swallow in one season. But maybe it's
good enough for the poor property own­
ers to muddle in, and the laying down
of planking for the muddy season so
narrow that two rigs can scarcely pass
one another except to have to bump up
against your walks.
And about your county roads: Wo
have expended thousands of dollars of
The Open Forum
only a few roads we can ride horseback
on except to get stuck in the mud. It
seems the more money they spend it
gets no better. Looks to me before a
person wants to tackle any thing of
that kind he ought to take a trip
around; maybe he needs a little show­
ing; Maybe we are not all from Missou­
And you talk about violating the law:
How about the automobile speed limit?
I thought the speed was regulated.
But maybe there is no regulation to it.
I thought also for them to give signals
at every curve of the road; but I guess
there is none.
Maybe some other day you will hear
from me again.

A Bilious A ttack
When you have a bilious attack your
liver fails to perform ita functions.
You become constipated. The food
you eat ferments in your stomach in­
stead of digesting. This inflames the
stomach and causes nausea, vomiting
and a terrible headache. Take Cham­
berlain’s Tablets. They will tone up
your liver, clean out your stomach and
you will soon be as well as ever. They
only cost a quarter.
One side of y cir Pass Book will show all the mnnev you have
received. The other side will show all you have paid out. and
the cancelled c leeks are your receipts.
This fine arrangement is yours if you will open your cheek ac­
count here.
Your account will be given careful and considerate attention.
