The Coos Hay Harbor says the
Coos Hay Home Telephone Co., with
exchanges in every city in the coun
ty nml lines reaching into Curry coun
ty has 1'i'cn sold to n company of
Portland capitalists. A recent issue
of the Portland Journal states that
local men had formed n company cap
italized for $150,000 for the purpose
Company 'of Coos IJay. It is staled
that there is rd.ont $100,000 worth of
stock issued nml that the price
agreed upon is par, thus it would seem
that the Portland company would
have to pay about that amount for
the exchange and it In presumed that
they would go to work at once to im
prove the system with the remainder
of their $150,000. It is believed that
when the railroad reaches this sec
tion next year that there will be a
great increase In tho telephone busi
ness us the result of the natural In
crease in population.

man Is better off morally, financially
and physically without liquor, and
backed his position up with an impos

on to show that man Is better off spir
