Monkeyed With Gas Wagon
Al. Garfield nccompanicd by Drs.

Endicott of California returned Inst
week from n hunting trip in the wilds
of Curry County. Al took flic party
down in his car, nnd left it with one of
tho farm houses while they were In
the interior, and returned to find that
some one had been joy riding during
his absence, nnd had among other
other things tried to run over an upple
tree with it, nnd the enr was so gene
rally damaged and demoralized that
it was with difficulty that the party
were able to return homo in i. It is
proverbial that down in Curry no one
will bear witness against his neighbor
so Al has not located the guilty par
ties. Pollock Sells Grocery BusincRR
The grocery firm, of Pollock and Pol

the cast end of First street for a yenr

Cheap Peaches in Umpqua
Elbert Dyer, who has been here this
week reports that fruit from the
Umpqua and Rogue river valleys is
to be had in the region where grown
at a very reasonable price. He says
that peaches cn bo purchased thero
at twenty five cents a box and they
can be had for the picking if one hns
tho ambition to go after thir. The
fnrmers of that country are feeding
them to their pigs and they do not
make extra good pig feed at that.
Not near as good as could be growil
on the land which the fruit tiecs en
cumber. Mr. Dyer says tho farmers
are begining to get tho fancy farm
ing idea out of their heads nnd to go
in for tho staples, alfalfa and (
and tho forage that will sustain a
dairy cow. These nre the crops fa
vored in the' Klamath district on tho
other side of the. Cascades and that
section is in much better condition
than the volleys noxt east.
Mr. Dyer and family expect to
spend the coming winter at Ashland
where thero are some notable miner
nl springs and if that section does
not suit them will go on to some other
place next year.

Will Repair South Side If Government ex
tends North Jetty. Bond Issuance Lessened
The Port of Bandon is to tnko ac

up during the Inst season. Tho govern
ment has the work of extending ,tho

At the meeting of the port hold in
Coquillo October 2nd the port (Jecldud
to nsk the government engincers(to
continue the work of replacing the
north jetty outward until tho .former
portion which now constitutes a, reef
is restored its original distance. This
is only reasonable as the money lias
been appropriated for the local harbor
work and all the equipment is ready
for the work. It cost $20,000 to 'put
in tho tramway and make arranga
mcntn for beginning tho work. . "
If this is done tho port plans to
spend $20,000 on the south side jcOty
to close off tho lagoon nnd make tlo
south side jetty pnrallel wjth the north
side from its western tenninus to tho
Brcuer dock. This it Is hoped , will
make a channel through which, tho"
tides nnd river current will keep a pnfi

wait for the occasional freshets ,; of

With these propositions ahead, ,t,w
port decided to repeal tho ordinance
which allows it to issue $2.ri0,00u in
bonds and to make tho amount to bo

of $25,000 for each issue. Port.Attor

is awakening to the importance of tho
river route ns a means of obtaining
competition and js endeavoring, to
suart a gasoline schooner route be
tween that city and Portland." The
work this summer of the dredge Se
attle will facilitate this and the fact
that tho Tillamook on its Inst trip in
took out 250 tons of coal from River
ton has lent encouragement o the no
tion. An effort is being made to
start the schooner Ahwaneeda on thje
run. i.
In this connection the port decided
to take action relative to sinkers,
or logs found to havo no value and
which aro .loft floating in tho rivor

An ordinance will bo present

one who leaves such logs in tho rivor.
