CHANDLER HAS FINE
C. II. Chandler lias rented his dem
onstration farm on the county road
east of Bandon to J. Hazelton, who
recently arrived in this section. The
farm consists of 17 acres, part of
which is cloaraUand under cultiva
tion and a considerable portion of
the remainder is partly cleared.
Mr. Hazelton took possession on
October 15th, and will become one
of Coos county's staunch citizens. Ho
will conduct the place Us a fruit and
vegetable farm and will be able to
supply tho people of Bandon with
fresh fruit and vegetables in season.
Mr. Chandler has 35 different var
ieties of fruit and vegetables ofi this
farm and they arc all doing nicely
and ho also has a fine garden and
orchurd under cultivatio non tho Mrs.
Ledgerwood place south of town. He
ways if anybody thinks that Coos
county soil is not productive, he
would like to have them visit either
one of these farms and he will con-
vinco them that we can grow the
finest of everything fight hero. Mr.
Chandler receives $100 a year for his
17 acre ranch, which is about $5.00
an acre, and Mr. Hazlcton will make
good money on this place next year.
He is well pleased with the outlook
in this section.

Constitutional Amendment number
328 and .its companion liill number
330 on tho ballot, proposed for adop

the state of authority to sell any tide

tho State is confronted With tho
prospect thai all industrial develop

is the opinion of practically every at

ination of tho proposed amendment
Well known lawyers in this and
other cities in the slate have point
ed out that tho proposed amendment
contains a provision that tide lands
may be leased by the State only as
sites on which to build docks. This
means that the State Land Board
will not be pormited to grant any
permit to dike or reclaim over-flow
lands or tide lands, jr any right to
utilize tido lands for booming pur
poses, fishery purposes or as sites for
industries or for any other industrial
In an address recently delvireed in
Portland by ex-Senator F. W. Mulkey'
who with C, S, Jackson of tho Jour
nal proposed tho amendment and the
bill, Mr. Mulkey used this expression:
"Unsold tide lands and foreshoro of
navigablo streams will remain the
proporty of tho Stato. Thoy will bo
analogous to timber lands in the Na
tional Forest Rosorvos. They will be
a heritage for futuro generations."
Those who have made aa study of
the amondmcnt and tho bill give Mr.
Mulkey credit, since ho is one of tho
authors of the measure, with know
ing what thoy mean nnd when he!
says that tho unsold tide lands nnd I
foroshore can only be leased for
dock purposes, it becomes clear that
the vast logging interests, fishing in

This installment will be shown at the Grand Theater next
Thursday Evening, Oct. 22.
The first release of the great Uni
versal "Troy O' Hearts" serial is in
threo reels. The first reel of this in
stallment is taken up by the prolog
ue, which gives the motive for all the
subsequent exciting, heartrending
and romantic incidents. Seneca
Trine, middle-aged and powerful in
the financial world, had married a
girl much younger than himself.
This girl was forced into tho marriage
through circumstances rather than
through love she felt toward Trine.
In fact she had loved another, Well
ington Law. At the opening of tho
prologue we find Trinc's wife the
mother of twin girls, unhappy i;
thoughts which still haunt her of
her old sweetheart, L i v. L tw, on the
other hand, is married to a cool, cal
culating woman and is the fathcr-of
In the course of time Trino bagins
to suspect the affection that his wife
still feels for Law, and with a bitter
heart, he undertakes a scheme to
ruin his wife's sweetheart. At a
ball ono evening he secures definite
proof of his wife's attitude toward
him and Ins determination to ruin
Law crystallizes into definite action.
A month later his plans of revenge
against the man whom lie believes
lias robbed him of hid wife's love are
carried to completion; Law is ruined.
Desperate and desiring fresh aiv,
Law drives into tho country in his au
tomobile. As fate would have it, he
accidentally runs down Trine; dis
covering tho identity of tho wounded
man he flees. Trine recovers, but is
left a paralytic for life. It is follow
ing this that-Trine plans lo kill Law
and he writes him to this effect. I.av
is already broken down, mentally and
physically, and when he begins to
find here and there n troy of hearts
card he takes tho euiicst way out
by killing himself, aftar sonding hit
boy to Europe.
At tho opening of the play proper,
Law, Jr., is a prospoious young bus
iness man in Loudon. Trino, still in
America, has not forgotten his plan
of revenge; lie awaits the time when
Law, Jr., is the happiest to strike
him down. Rose, ono of .tho twin
daughters, ho sends to Europo for
the purposo of meeting and securing
Law's love. Roso, however, is un
aware of her father's intentions; she
lias high ideals and a tender heart,
while her sister, Judith, is hard anil

ably be considered at the regular

Dr. Sorenson staled that he could

has made a good record and has the
confidence of the people.

County Agriculturalist Will
Assist Farmers in Seed .
A free selling service for seed po
tatoes nnd seed corn is being organ
ized for Coos cojmty farmers by J. L.
Smith, County Agriculturalist. The
aim is to raise the standard of those
crops in the county by encouraging
more careful grading of th csecd and
by bringing together farmers who
have reputable seed to sell and those
who wish to buy. If farmers who
have seed to sell will send in to Mr.
Smith, at Coquillc. the number of
bushels for sale, name of variety,
stating whether early or late, grown
on. up-lnnd or bottom land, wlieli
plantde and when .harvested, this in
formation will bo placed in suitable
form for send'ng to prospective buy
ers of seed. Likewise, farmers de
siring to buy seed should send in
their names, specifying the amount
and kind of seed needed. This infor
ma'tion will be furnished to buyers
and sellers without charge.
Mr. Smith believes it woudl bo to
tho advantage of sellers to send in n
guaranteed sample of three or for
potatoes or earn of corn with their
information. These samples will be
placed on exhibition in tho officoof
the agriculturalist in order that
prospective buyers, visiting the of
fice, may get an idea of the quality
of the seed each man has for sale.
Mr. Smith will not handle money or
make agreements for contracting
parties; ho will simple act as a go
between in bringing buyers and sell
ers together, thereby aiding in the
distribution of good seed throughout
Farmers are urged to send in the
information requested as soon ns pos
sible so that' their names may ap
pear on the lists to be issued. Grow
ers desiring information tho selec
tion of seed potatoes and seed corn
and a knowledge of the most desir
able types may obtain this informa
tion of Mr. Smith.
