School Notice to Parents.
Death of Mrs. Craddock.
The attention of parents is direct­
ed to the fact that the second half of
the school year will open on Mon­
day, January 29th.
On that date pupils in the primary
grade will be admitted, and it is
hoped that all beginners will be in
attendance upon the first day if pos­
sible and not later than the end of
the first week.
Parents are asked to kindly send
slips with the name and age of chil­
dren who are entering foi the first
According to the State law no
child under six years of age will be
H. L. H opkins ,
Monday's Coos Bay Times gives
the following account of the death of
Mrs. Emma Craddock, who formerly
lived here and is well known to
many Bandon people:
“Mrs. Emma Craddock was the
second child of Mr. and Mrs S C.
Rogets and would have been 43
years old May 22, 1912. She was
married to C. A. Craddock about 19
years ago. For several years they
made their home in Coos county,
Mr. Craddock fora long time being
manager of the Lorenz store at Ban
don. About it years ago they
moved from Bandon to California to
make their home.
“Eight days ago Mrs. Craddock
underwent an operation for appendi­
citis. Early advises were that she
was getting along nicely, but unex­
pected complications proved fatal.
“Besides her husband and thiee
sons and parents, Mrs. Craddock is
survived by two brothers and two
sisters. The latter are Frank Rog­
ers and Herbert Rogers of Coos
river, and Mrs. Nellie Coffelt-Elzy
of North Dakota, and Mrs. A. J.
Sherwood of Coquille.
Definite advises relative to the fu-
neial or whether the body will be
brought here for burial have not
been received yet.
Louis W. Hill May Quit
Unofficial announcement has been
made at St. Pau) that Louis W. Hill
is to retire May 1st as President cf
the Great Northern Railway and
that he will devote his time in the
future to his agricultural holdings in
various parts of the Northwest.
It is understood that Mr. Hill has
been eager for some time to relin­
quish his direct connection with the
railroad and aid more actively in the
development of the Northwest in
which he is vitally interested. The
principal reason that keeps him
where he is, it is said, is the absence
of a man who will suit his father,
James J. Hill, as his successor. Mr.
Hill is deeply interested in Oregon,
and it is probable that if he quits
railroading he will give this state
much active attention.
