THIRTY YEARS OF SERVICE
Nineteen hundred and fourteen
completed the thirtieth year of the
Recorder's publication. It was found
ed in 1884 by J. H. Upton und pub
lished at Denmark, Oregon.
At that time Bandon was known as
The 1-crry. John Lewis, who had
coiiie to this country in the sixties,
owned all the land on the south side
of the Coquillo from the bar to a mile
above the Prosper mill. He operated
a ferry across, the river and kept a
btore, i.aioon.!;f!thd u' hotel. He would
no(rcil or. IgHyahy bind and thus
prevented thfMting of a town, al
though the wpHjps' lirst reached the
muutii of the CoVuiillc river in 1851.
ueo. Bennett purchased the ptop-
the nrescnt beach about
lbi 1 and naiYfed.lt after his old home
of lianuon htSfrefund.
About iblp 'j. P. Tupper built the
holei known, as the Ocean House, near
Tupper rock and a postoflice was es
tablished here with the, name of Ban
don. In ,1885 Jno. Lewis sold his hold
ing for $25,000 to A. H. Averill and
Solomon Albertson. Albertson not be
ing able to raise his portion of the
purchase price sold his equity for five
hundred dollars to Averill.
Mr. Averill platted and named the
present town ' "Averill" which name
was changed to Bandon when the gov
ernment moved the postodice from
1 upper Rock to Averill's town, but
reflistJ to change its name from Ban
don to Averill.
In 188(5 Mr. Averill sold a half in
terest in his holdings to Geo. M. Dyer
and his son, Elbert Dyer. In 1887
the Dyers by trade look over the en
tire interest from Averill.
In 188G The Recorder was purchas
ed by J. M. Upton and P. O. Chilstrom
and moved from Denmark to the new
town of Bandon.
At this time the big timber came
clear down to the river banks, except
tlie flat where the business part of
Bandon is situated, which had been
partly clearoeK for use as an Indian
burial ground. The only road to
Port Otcvd wh3 down the beach with

Coos Bi'.y points were reached by a

The Recorder proposes to keep in
touch with the world outside Bandon
and to take keen interest in those
larger actions and problems in which
we have a common lot.
Finally The Recorder has prosper
ed modeutly in a material way. With
the growth of Bandon The Recordor
has replaced most of its old machin
ery with the modern equipment of an
up-to-date publishing and job print
It has kept up-to-date and always
able to purform its duty'to the com
munity. The Recorder is one of tho oldest
institutions in the city. It hr.s ac
quired that character of stability and
confidence which the test of time im
parts. Thirty years marks a man in
his piime and gives in a young coun
try like ours to a semi-public inati
lution as a newspaper, a to 13 o: por

Watever our sympathies may be in
the present European war, all r.ro
fiiced to adnmation of Germany's
uhiiitv to stand against the voii! in
arms. There is an erruuoui im,- s
sion that this ability rests primarily
upon the Oman nilitary system,
eiornuny'a military preparation is in
deed a great factor but there are oth
ers that contributed greatly and which
.ire more worthy of our emulation.
In Germany every child is forced
'.o go to the public schools until it
lias attained tho eigth grade, except
the few who are so mentally deficient
that it is impossible for them to learn
that much. These mental deficients
are i.ot turned out unprepared for
.ife's struggle to become charity
ward., but are examined by education
al spacialists who prescribe the work
for which they are best fitted in which
they are then trained. These defi
cient:! all through their lives are tho
ward., of their early teachers who look
after their welfare and prevent their
explo'tation. Many decided menial
derelicts are thus put into tlie niche
into .vhicli they best fit and live inde
pendent and useful lives. Some often
have abnormal musical faculties. Such
find agreeable and. profitable employ
ment in the beer gardens and' music
halls. Others are as suitably placed
in tho trades.
The normal children after gradua
tion from the eigtli grade are given
an industrial or vocational training.
Thus all German children are not only
given a broad general theorectical ed
ucation to develop and train their
mind ; but are fitted practically for

earning a living..
Germany is'the only country where
teaching children is thought to bo a
manly occupation for a man. School
teachers there hold their positions
Ten per cent of the children do not
terminate their education at the
eigtli grade but go on through the un
iversity. Thus is trained the army of
scoitiiist8 that have done so much to
help Germany in material ways, such
as perfecting processes in the indus
tries, i nmedicine, surgery, sanita
tion, municipal government, etc.
Neither wealth nor birth nor influ
ence can mtvo a German youth from
serving his time in the military ser
vice. The only thing that will ex
empt him is to take the additional ed-ueation-to
fit him for one of tlie pro
fessions. Germany has developed and perfect
ed the best educational system yet de
vised and to a large extent has become
the school mistress in higher educa
tion to tho world.
In the rnattor of education wo
stand noxt to Germany, with the ex
ception of Holland and Denmark,
yet ours is a pitiful comparison. Less
than liftcon per cent of our children
over get as far as the sixth grade.
They are given no vocational train
ing. No spocial provision is made
for tlie training and care of our men
tal deficients. The teaching of chil
dren is nlmost entirely a feminine oc
cupation. Only a small potion of our

BOYS IN SCHOOL.
A remarkable fact is brought out
in the article on the Bandon Schools
by Miss Rodgers, printed in thi3 is
sue. That is the large proportion of
boys in the High School.
It is a lamentable fact viewed with
misgivings by many keen observers
that our high schools are mainly em
ployed in educating girls only. Among
the various causes assigned for this
two are the most prominent.
Tlie boys, owing to their greater
earning power arc ofte,n deprived of
their needful education in order that
their income may help support th
family, and tho femininity surround
ing our schools through the employ
ment of women teachers mainly fails
to apneal to the boys verging into
manhood. Thov desire a more mas-
culino atmosphere and leave school
early to engage in affairs directed by
It certainly speaks well for the
condition of affairs in our community
and its high school when we remedy
locally one of the most serious and
wide sprei'd fault.-, in the nations ed

Woman Finally Recovers
From Nervous Breakdown
Impoverished nerves destroy many
people before their time. Often be

complete nervous breakdown. It
is of the utmost importance to keep
your nervous system in good con

of all bodily power. Mrs. Rosa
