not enough to more than label a trace

GOODNESS GKACIOUS" WILL
SURELY MAKE YOU LAUGH
"Goodness Gracious" is the famous
three-reel Vitagraph farce-comedy
that established the world's record for
a continuous run in New York City.
At the Vitagraph Theatre it sent 250
capacity audiences into paroxysms of
laughter in 250 consecutive perform
nnccs. Universally it is acclaimed
the breeziest laugh-maker ever pro
duced, and its 3,000 feet of film mcr
viment produces 3,000 hearty laughs,
It is the standard by which comedies
of tho future will bo judged, and ev
erywhere the Vitagraph company and
its merry comedians havo been com
plimented for conceiving an origin
ality and daring in comedy creation
which far surpasses anything biter
to seen. In every sense it is a hil
Sidney Drew and Clara Kimball
Young portray the leading roles, the
former assuming a dashing college
boy and the latter n love-sick novel
(lend. Others in the cast of merry
makers are Ned Finley, who portrays
a diabolical villian, who, through 3
reels, cavorts merrily about like a
crocodile on his honeymoon. Ho is
a villian of the most pronounced type
and always almost accomplishes tho
Impossible. lie would have succeeded
had it not been for tho timely arriv-
ul of the college chap or the cussed
ness of tho camera men, who stop
ped turning the crank just before the
villian succeeded in his nefarious dc
signs. Etienne Girardot plays the
"poor o'ld man." He dies early in the
act. Judging from tho little we see
of him, he should havo died earlier
for he is immersed in tho thralls of
misery and woe until the villian
steals his red-hot stove, then the
"poor old man" dies of a chill. Kate
Price is a dyspeptic, gastronomically
und mentally. With this bevy of im
possible characters, portraying im
possible parts in impossible situa
tions, is it any wonder that the melo
drama dcvclopcs into a ludicrous bur
There is little semblance of a story,
"Goodness Gracious" was construct
ed for laughing purposes only. Ev
ery idea in it is burlesqued unmerci
fully and played with mock serious
ness. One is nt a loss as to how to
properly describe the picture. How
ever, the concensus' of opinion is that
"Goodness Gracious" is funnier than
half a dozen ordinary successful
theatrical farces. If you enjoy a
laugh, if you havo a grouch, if you
want to forget your troubles, or if
you possess n proverbial "mother-in-
iaw," by all means see "Goodness
Gracious." It will cure anything
from a toothache to appendicitis, and
it comes to the Grand theatre, Sun
day night, August 30.
WHEN CORN FOR SILAGE
SHOULD BE HARVESTED
Oregon Agricultural College, Cor
valis, Ore., Aug. 28. Corn for silage
is porferably cut when tho kernels
have passed tho milk stage and are
glazed and dented, according to the
O. A. C. dairy specialists. When corn
has reached this stago tho lower
leaves are beginning to turn brown.
Corn at this stago makes silago that
is more nutritious ns well us sweeter
and more palatable.
Asido from boing moro sour, silago
from immuturo corn lacks a great
part of the nutrition of tho moro ma
ture corn. It was found by tho New
York Experiment Station that corn
in tho silk stago contained 90 por
cent more dry matter than it contain
ed in the early tassel stage, 30 per
cent more in tho milk than in tho
silked stage, and 55 por cent moro
in tho glazed stage thnn in tho milk
stnge. It is thus seen that silage
from corn in tho glazed stago is two
and three-fourths times as nutritious
us corn In the first tas.seled stage.
hen corn Is frosted before it has
reached tho proper stago it should be
cut and put into the Bilugo at once.
If allowed to stand in tho field uftor
floating until it dries out, water
ahntild ho added to replucet he amount
lost by evaporation. Cut corn in the

GOOD B A LL GAME IS
ASSURRED FOR SUNDAY
The ball game at the Bandon base
ball park next Satuiday afternoon
between tho Bandon Moose and the
Riverton team promises to be a good
one as both teams are determined to
win and are practicing hard for the
occasion. In the Bandon lineup will
be some of the best players iri tho
city, several of whom made good in
the fast Coos County league of last
summer and others equally fast.
The Riverton team has been win

Doubted Governor's. Authority.
Coos Bay Times: Local sportsmen
rather doubted the authority of the
Governor to close the hunting season
as he did by proclamation last week.
A query was addressed to Attorney
General Crawford at Salem for cita
tion of the authority of law giving
such right to the Governor. An an
swer was received today quoting a
paragraph of the laws of General Ses
sions, Laws, of 1911, Section 7, Chap-'
tor 278, which fully covers the point.
The local men are satisfied that the
Governor was well within Ins rights
COOS COUNTY A GREAT
COUNTRY FOR POTATOES
There is no placo on the globe that
can beat Coos county for raising po
tatoes, either quantity or quality.
It is not a rare incident to sec a
potato field in this county yield
from 300 to 400 bushels of potatoes
to tho acre, and they are of the fin
est quality to bo found nnywhorc.
Tho greatest trouble with tho po
tato business here is that there arc
not enough people engaged in it and
another trouble is that in the fall of
the year the potatoes are all shipped
out, so that by spring, before tho. new
crop comes on, it is necessary to ship
an inferior grade of potatoes back
from California to supply the demand.
What we need here is more potato
growers and a more careful study of
the potato market.
ROSES GROW PROFUSELY
IN GARDENS OF BANDON
Portland has its annual Rose Fes
tival, Roseburg takes its name from
the many beautiful roses that grow
in that vicinity, but none of these
cities havo anything on Bandon when
it comes to raising roses as several
of tho beautiful gardens in this city
R. C. McKinnis has as fine a rose
arbor as can be found any place. The
beautiful roses in the window at the
Red Crain Drug Store, grown by
Mrs. Crain and Dr. L. P. Sorensen, are
as beautiful as can bo found any
place. In fact thcro arc dozens of
rose gardens in this city that will
compare favorably with any of tho
celebrated rose sections in Oregon,
California, or anywhere else.

Sign Painter Arrested.
Coos Buy Times: J. S. Ward, n
sign painter who recently left Marsh
field witli his family, going from here
to Bandon, was arrested in thnt city
about noon today. Suits was brought
against Ward in Justice Pcnnock's
court this morning by R. A. Copple
for the payment of a bill. The Pio
neer Hardware Company nnd George
Baines were also parties to the suit.
A writ of arrest was issued and Ward
was arrested by Constable Blackerby.
Upon arrest he promised to pay Hie

abut $24.00. Costs to the amount of
$11.20 were also charged to Ward.

Hay seems to have been little known
in the middle ages. Stock was win

Elizabeth, gives much advice to the

green branches, which might serve as
fodder when pasture failed. He Is par
ticular as to the desirability of saving
tho beech cuttings for the milk cows,

MILLER SAYS ROAD WILL
BE COMPLETED NEXT YEAR
W. F. Miller, general agent for tho
Southern Pacific at Marshfioid, came
over yesterday with the Portland
boosters and while here stated that
the Willamette Pacific railroad would
be completed from Eugene to Maple
ton this fall and that during the win
ter the tunnels and bridges between
Coos Bay and Mnplcton will be com
pleted and as Che other grading is
now practically done, the ballasting
and laying of rails will begin early
hi the spring so that it can be com
pleted during the sumcr. '
Mr. Miller also gave it as his opin
ion that as soon as tho road was com
pleted to Coos Bay it would be ex
tended on down to Bandon from Beav
er Slough. There is an easy grade
from hero to Beaver Slough and it ic
only nbout.,17 miles from Bandon to
the railroad at that point. The Wil
lamette Pacific will be completed re
gardless of the war or financial situ
ation, as tho money for that is already
provided for, and there are over 2,000
men working on tho line. At present
there are 05 men working on the Coos
Bay bridge. This bridge will be 1100
feet long and will have cloven spans.
The draw will be 150 feet long so
that vessels of any size can ensil
pass through when the draw is open.
