Advertising is an important
feature of modern business.
A merchant may have' the
very thing the public needs
'but unless the latter is aware
'of this, the law of supply
-and demand, will not work
out.1 Newspaper advertising
is the best way to accomplish
u this end. The name of a
t business man or firm which
- appears regularly in the co
' lumns of the Recorder is
naturaly most familiar to Re
corder patrons and the first
to be patronized when any
thing is needed.

Tito Siuslaw Pilot of the Mth print!
the following concerning work on the
Williamette-Pacific, which is being
built between Eugene and Coos Bay.
Workmen have broken through the
longest and last tunnel to be finished
on the Williamette Pacific. This tun
nel is the first one south of the Ump,
quu and is -l.HOO feet, nearly three
quarters of a mile, other sight tunnels
has been completed.
The grading with the exception of
the two stretches above Acme, has
been finished. Work on the trestles
on the lakes south of Florence will
commence within two weeks.
While here recently, Engineer C. ,R.
Bronghton was making preparations
for work on the large railroad bridge
across the Siuslaw just above Acme
A crew of men under Ed Griffith is
now establishing a camp for the brid
ge construction crew.
Tho south trestle approach is n6w
complete. It is 2,500 feet in lenght
and 835 piling, averaging 85 feet lo(ig
were used in its construction. An ap
proach 100 feet long will be construct
ed on the north approach.
It will take about 00 days to finish
grading between Acme and MapleUm
and then .about three weeks to lay the
rails. As soon as this is done, the
steel for the bridge can be brought in
COQUELL AND CO KEEL
Until the settlers and their dirdct
descendcuts are all dead and buried
the pronouuet'ution of the name of
this town and river will probably
be eternally bobbing up for discus
sion. Whether "Coquoll" or Co
keel is the product of advancing clv
ponds altogether on the point of view
Perhaps as good a working plait as
any is this: If you have $100 or mrtn
it is Cokeel; if you are broke it is Co-
quell. Coquell is the Common, scrub,
Indian name that the explorers found
here when they found the river; Co-
keel is the product of advancing ci
ilzation and crept in after the coipi
try had reached that stage of develop
nient when aspirations of something
more refined and mclifluous atid
Frenchy began to make themselves
felt. The early Settlers never thought
of calling it anything but Coquell and
up to forty years ago, or less, tho man
who said Cokeel would have been look
ed upon in about the same light ns the
wearer of a shiny plug hat in the ear
ly mining camp days. An old govern
ment map is in existance on which the
spelling is most aggregriously and
shiimlessly "Coquell". Not long ago
in article was republished in one of
the county papers that had been
written years ago by the late Orville
Dodge, the Coos and Curry historian
and he had spelled the name "Coquell"
throughout the artice. How the pres-
scnt spelling came to be finally ad
opted docs not appear; hut it , may
have been at the advice of a wise guy
from the interior, who advanced the
theory that the Indian got the' name
from the French explorers and in that
case the spelling must be Frenchified.
After this opening wedgo was inserted
it was e:sy for another erudite gent-
lemnn to point out that the name being
French r.ntl spelled "Coqulllo," it
should be given a French prolinuria-
