present site to a location near Den
mark where it will be operated for
the local market.
The mill was built on the W. R.
Hurst place on Elk river several
years ago by Mr. Loucks and some
lumber was hauled to town and
shipped but owing to the distance of
the haul, about 7 miles, it was never
a paying proposition and for the lo
cal market it was also unable to com

WINE GRAPES AS HOG FEED
Use for Vine Fruit Threatens
To Make California Dry
Abolition of the saloon In Californ
ia is planned by the brewers and the
wine growers association. These two
business interests, acting together, arc
planning to present to the people of
that state an anti-saloon bill to be sub
mitted in November, 191G. The brew
eries and the wine growers are unit
ing against the saloon and the whis
ky interests in order to save their own
business, realizing that it is only a
qui3tion of timo whc-i California gosa
"A. y" unless the saloon is disposed of.
In California it is generally con
ceded that only the exposition saved
the state from going "dry", with Ore
gon, Washington and other states last
autumn. The southern and northern
parts of California voted "dry" on the
question of statewide prohibition, but
the bay counties saved the day by rol
ling up a tremendous majority for the
"wets," feeling particular interest
in the exposition, then approaching.
Even people who voted against prohi
bition refused to support the plan to
prevent resubmission of the question
for eight years, reserving to them
selves tho right to vote for prohibition
without waiting that long.
One of the chief arguments advanc
ed against prohibition was that it
would ruin the wino businesss in Ca
lifornia and the thousands, of acres
of wine vineyards would become
worthless. The government war tax
has controverted this argument. Ow
ing to the heavy war tax there is prac
tically no wine being manufactured
in California at present and the own
ers of wine grape vineyards are dry
ing their crop and feeding it to the
hogs. The experiment has shown
that these dried grapes are as fatten
ing for hogs as corn and with this dis
covery the growers are turning their
attention to hog raising. So, pending
the war tax, the wine manufacture is
is at a standstill, but the vineyards
have not become worthless the pro
duce has simply been turned to an
After studying the situation for
some eight months the Brewers and
Wine Growers association have de
cided that to save themselves and pre
vent California from becoming dry
as a bono they must, in self protection
eliminate the saloon. To this end a
measure is now beinir diafted. Bv

state the brewers and Wine Growers'
association believe that they will sa

LESS DANCING, MORE
WORK AT UNIVERSITY
Fraternity Houses are Restricted to
Two Dances a Year, Except During
Holidays; U. I'roperty to Four
No fraternity house, either men's
or women's may this year hold more
than two dances on its premises or
elsewhere under its direction, say's a
new regulation passed by the faculty
of the State University at Eugene.
Tho fraternity that breaks this
rule is to lose its next two dances. If
it breaks the rule a second lime, it is
to lose tho next three dances. A
third violation renders prrticipants
subject to suspension.
Responsibility for enforcement is
put upon the dean of men and tho
dean of women, who are Dr. John
Straub and Miss Ruth Guppy, respec
tively. The faculty passed the rule
Another faculty rule, new this
year, prohibits student contests or
exhibitions on Mondayfs, Tuesdays,
Wednesdays and Thursdays, except
between four and six o'clock p. m.
The new regulations are intended
to promote study by decreasing dis
tractions. Student life was begin
ning to get cut up by so many social
.Hid athletic activities at night thnt
scholarly pursuits were in danger.
Simultaneously with laying n stem
hand upon activities, the faculty ad
opted a system under which the best
students may go in for scholastic
honors; and professors were asked by
the administrations to advance stud
ards once more.
Dancing upon University property
has also been cut to a minimum four
a year, one for each of tho four clas
ses, shall be tho limit, says tho ruling.
The Florence West, Sept. 24, says:
"The first cars to cross tidewater on
the Siuslaw River, wore taken over tho
false work of the new bridge Cush
man last Monday. Trains are now
being run across the bridge to carry
steel and gravel for the construction
of the road from that point south to
ward Gardiner. Gravel for ballast is
being hauled in from Natron on the
trains and the officials are undecided
whether to haul it all the way to Cooa
bay or not."

3. A. Ward, in charge of the Coos
Curry exhibit at the San Francisco
exposition, suggests to the Marshfield
Chamber of Commerce that tho mov
ing pictures taken in this section
should be shown on the fair grounds
at the exposition building. He says
that many of the counties of the state
are already employing his method of
advertising their sections of the state
and it has been found to be one of
tho greatest advertising features in
troduced nt the fair. People who
would not otherwise take any great
nterest in the exhibits or displays of
fruits and vegetables will flock to the
building to see these actual scenes of
the country. He argues that in view
ing the horticultural and agricultural
displays tho peoplo are wont to look
upon the articles shown as being
something extraordinary, but know
that what is seen in the motion pic
tures are actual happenings, perhaps
slightly elaborated for the occasion
