Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Cotter ar
rived home Thursday evening from
a visit of three months at Austin,
Minn., with the mother and other
relatives of Mr. Cotter. They re
port extremely cold weather in that
part of the country with very little
snow. The coldest weather was
around Christmas time when the
temperature hovered around 20 be
low zero. When they started home
it was only 8 degrees above so the
warm spring days we have been
having are quite a treat to them.
They report stock to be suffering
for lack of feed in the Dakotas be
cause of the severe winter condi

that the health of Mr. Cotter's
mother, whose condition called
them East, is much improved.

Mrs. Maude Farris went to The
Dalles Sunday mornnig to have
some dental work done. While there
she heard that E Holmquist had
died there during the preceeding
week. The cause of his death was
not learned. Mr. Holmquist will be
remembered by everyone here as
"Swede Ed," having been employed
in and near lone in various capac
ities during the last twenty years
or so. He has made his headquar
ters in The Dalels for several years
but usually came back to this coun

work in lambing camps.

A trip down or up the coast high
way offers marine scenery unsur
riHHserl hv anv other section of the
world for an equal distance. The
continuous roll of the surf as it
pounds away at the shore has a
never ending fascination, in places
the forest comes down to meet the
sea. Everywhere the green of fern,
grass or shrubbery. Rhodendron
abounds all along the route and
Scotch brome, a pest, but a beauti
ful one, grows in profusion. Where
the road cuts thru sand dunes the
highway department has seeded the
slopes to holland grass. This grass
planted as bunches in rows some
how reminds ona of soldiers all
standing at attention. Beaches In
vitingly displayed and washed to a
snowy whiteness twice daily in
duces a strong desire to linger a
while and hunt agates or sea shells.
In places hundreds of sea lions
are industriously fishing and trying
to arown the roar of the surf with
their bellowing. I was fortunate in
that the day I visited sea lion caves
there were perhaps more than two
hundred in the cave, all talking at
once and no one listening to the
other fellow. I thought at first it
was a ladies' aid meeting but the
guide pointed out several bulls, each
surrounded by his harem. We got
up to within forty or fifty feet of
the closest and I would judge that
the bulls were about ten feet in
length and would weigh something
in excess of a ton, though the guide
informed me that bulls have been
known to achieve a weight of 7500
pounds. There was one visitor from
California, easily distinguished by
the fact that California sea lions are
black while Oregon has the cream
Marshfleld on Coos Bay is now
the main coast city as it is the head
quarters for a large lumbering in
dustry. Just a few miles to the
east, at Coquille, is in my opinion
the beauty spot of Oregon. Many
madrona trees and an occasional
redwood can be seen here but the
dominant note of charm lies in the
multitude of myrtle. February 25th
strawberries, blackberries and ap
ple trees were in bloom in this sec
tion. I had the good fortune to
cross the coast range at several
places and was much interested in
the distinct cleavage between veg
etative and timber types on the two
sides of the mountains, for the
coast range is nothing like the Cas
cades for altitude and a mountain
pass in the coast range will often
be under two thousand feet The
coast is lined with towns and re
sorts. The two main towns between
Coos Bay and Astoria are Newport
and Waldport; however, in the main
the towns and beach resorts are un
impressive if not outright depress
ive and subtract from rather than
enhance the beauties of the drive.
Oregon timbermen have done all
they could to make the coast region
resemble what hell may be like
when it cools off a little. After
creaming 25 to 40 per cent of the
timber, Are has been allowed to
complete the devastation. There is
one bright spot, in that most of
the land is supporting a fair to good
crop of reproduction and should fire
be kept out, we will have another
crop between two and four hun
dred years from now.
Trips inland are worth while. The
Three Rivers country is noted for
its Ashing. Tillamook, the Den
mark of America, is famous for its
cheese. Vast meadows support
herds of Holstein, Guernsey and
other breeds of bossies. Folks here
speak of "so many cows to the acre
of land, which to an east sider
sounds odd, for here it takes a right
good number of acres to support a
cow. While poor "Lo" seems to be
gone entirely from the land he left
the paleface a rich legacy of In
dian nomenclature for all geograph
ic features of the country from
Tillamook north to the Columbia.
Just south of Astoria is a rich ag
ricultural country, which gives the
impression of a section of the Neth
erlands. Much of the land is dyked
and considerable areas ate in bulb
crops for the cut flower markets.
Only the windmills, wooden shoes
and baggy breeches are needed to
complete the picture.

At the near approach of Easter
tide, when is especially remembered
the triumphant overcoming of death
by the Lord Christ, in His glorious
resurrection it seems timely to pay
close attention to the drawing near
of the instrument of not only death
but also the symbol of life; the as
surance of every sinner's safety for
eternity, if the sinner will accept
and avail himself or herself of the
provision made, the Cross, whereon
the Prince of Glory died. . And so
