From Eugene to Vcneta is flat farm
ing country. From Veneta to Noti the
; country is flat, gradually rising into the
foot hills. Noti is also the center of a
logging district. '
West of Noti the road passes Horse
Shoe Curve and Noti tunnel, 2,480 feet
long, at the summit of the Coast range.
After the tunnel comes Chickahominy
creek, Wild Cat creek and near the sta
. tion Austa, the Siuslaw, which is follow
ed to tide water.
'The Old Man of Siuslaw," a curious
rock formation is soon at Swiss Home.
Mapleton is next passed, a center for
dairying, fishing and lumbering. Cush
maa is the railroad station for Acme,
. Florence and Glenada.
Leaving Cushman, the line follows an
arm of Siuslaw bay for several miles,
thence tnrough several tunnels until it
finally emerges on the shore of Tsilt
eooa lake. The road winds along the
shores of this lake for many miles, pass
ing -through three stations, Lane, Ada
Gardiner station is on the banks of
the Smith river, a Bhort distance ab6ve
the confluence of that stream with the
Umpqua. Several beautiful boat trips
may be taken from Gardiner up the
Winchester Bay is at the mouth of
the Vmpqua river and reached by boat
from Gardiner. Bcedsport, a new town,
' is located on the railroad, established
since the road has been built. From
.' Becdsport, the railroad follows Scofield
1 creek, then passes through two long
. tunnels, coming out in the lake region
; between the Umpqua river and Coos
bay. - r
Lakeside station is close to Ten Mile
lake, a summer resort colony. Now
. here is one of the wonders of the trip,
"the crossing of Coos bay on the mile
long bridge. This bridge is built of

by an 80-horsepower gasoline engine
and can be opened and closed in a few
Crossing the mile long bridge, the
railroad is built into North Bend, a
town at 2, GOO. Marshfield with its 4,000,
joins North Bend on the south, Here is
located the big Smith mills, one of the
largest sawmills in the world. All lum
ber from the Smith mills is shipped by
steamer to San Francisco.
Marshfield is a city of good appear
ance, with its new buildings and paved
streets. It has modern hotels and an
apartment house. It is here the great

Oregon Boys Known As
the Undressed Corps
Calexico, Cal., July 6. The new
est military organization on the bor
der is the "undressed corps", com
prising members of the Oregon nation
al guard units here.
Oregonians going about today in un
dershirts and minus leggings, usually
armed with a fan of some sort, anil
.consuming copious draughts of ice
water were dubbed the "undressed
corps" by regular troops who have
been stationed here for many weeks.
Despite the preripitious change from
the cool, moist northwest atmosphere
to the simmering " h0 above in the
hade" weather of the border, the Ore
gon boys are rapidly becoming accli
mated and their original "beet" red
complexions are now turning to tan.
The Oregon ramp la now thoroughly
established and preparations for the
reception of the Washington contin

London, July 6. About the only ob
jection to the recently adopted daylight
saving scheme now being agitated in
America was that it was made in Ger
many. But England isn't so touchy on
that point as she used to be. She has
learned lots of things from Germany
in the last two years. Why, they even
make Frankfurter sausapes right here
in London these days, and serve them
with Teutonic-style potato salad and
Germany began robbing darkness in
favor of daylight on May 1, by setting
all the clocks in the emnire ahead an
hour. Great Britain followed by do
ing the same thing. On October 1 the
clocks will be turned back agnin.
There is a yearly cain of 134 hours
of useful daylight, equivalent to 17
working days of nine hours each.
Gas bills are much lower, both in the
home and in the factory. The total year
ly saving in this item alone is estimat
ed at 612,500,000.
Railway companies will save about
$500,000 a year in cost of lighting and
will benefit by increased pnssenger traf

Some Notes About
About seven hundred million feet
of timber was cut on the national for
ests in 1915.
FrcBno, Cal., July 6. Armed posses
scoured the hills around Miami lodge
and Wawona today for the motorcycle
bandit who held up five motor stages
carrying tourists to Yosemite valley and
took more than $400 from passengers.
Lurking at a sharp corner of the road,
the robber, masked with a black silk
handkerchief, halted each of the five
stages by threatening chauffeurs with
a sa wed-off shotgun. When the motors
were lined up, the highwayman ordered
ail passengers to form in a tow under
the trees. Then he passed the hat, say
ing: "I want money no jewelry."
The mails were not molested.
His work completed, the bandit
mounted the motorcycle and tore down
the road at high speed. He was observ
ed passing through Fresno flats at a
breakneck speed, but no further truce
has been reported.
Among his victims were a party from
Los Angeles and J. W. Crump, of Bos
ton; G. G. Oetting, of Chicago, the
Schultz party of Pittsburg, Mr. and
Mrs. V Simmons, of Philadelphia; Mr.
and Mrs. Anton Kean, of Chicago; Mr.
and Mrs. W. C. Gilbert, of New York;
E. H. Williams, of Kansas; Mr. and
Mrs. Amby, of Lincoln, Neb.; and a
number of Southern Pacific railroad officials.

up five Yosemite valley stages near
Miami Lodge and escaped with $400 is
hiding in the hills today while posses

man had driven it at high speed for a
considerable distance from the Bcene.
They have followed the bandit's trail

Within a short time the lieutenants,
sergeants and corporals will be named
as the result of competitive examina
tions to be held soon. It is thought prob
able that the commissioned officers and
first sergeant will be chosen through ex
amination and that the sergeants and
corporals will be appointed by the cap
tain. Captain Via, who is to have charge
of the destinies of the organization, is
particularly qualified for the position
he holds in that he has been a member
of the regular army and has seen actual
service in Cuba and in other places. He
is the moving spirit of the volunteers
and with O. B. Gingrich first conceived
the idea of forming a company in this
city to become a part of the volunteer
refiment being organized by Judge Gan
tenbein, of Portland.
For a time the company will have to
uiriu without tne regulation equipment
but this will be secured later. There
is no dearth o'f drill officers as a num
ber of those now in fhe company have
served in the army in the past and are
anle- to give instruction to the "rook

ately in order that the company may
be among the first to report everybody
ready for service.
Rumor Says Villa
Is Alive Once More
Washington, July 6. Color was giv
en today to reports that Villa is alive
when state department agents trans
mitted as rumors the statement that he
has a force with him below Parral and
is moving north. The message Baid he
had been wounded, but has recovered.
Though army men have expressed the
view that Villa is dead, the state de
partment reports apparently came from
Experiments with jack pine have
shown that it is well suited for making
kraft paper. On some of the national
forests this tree is used to plant land
which is too poor to grow other tim
ber. A new fire fighting tool has been
invented bv a forest ranger in Cali
fornia which consists of an inter
changeable hoe and rake. It is said
to be the best tool of the sort yet devised.
The use of Osage orange for making
dyes promises to be extensive. The
Forest Products Laboratory is making
a census which shows that the supply
of the wooil is more than ample to meet
the present needs.
It is estimated that there is 348 bul
lion feet of privately owned timher in
Oregon west of the Cascade Range,
and 270 billion feet in Washington.
The national forests contain 162 billion
feet, making for the west side of the
two states a total stand ot timber es
timated at 780 billion board feet.
The world's ski jumping record is
held by an American, who covered a
distance of just under 193 feet.

G. W. HOBSON, Prop.
Says If Not Preparedness;
"Frenzy Revenue Would
Have Been Ample
Washington, July 6. After the house
had agreed to vote Monday on the ad
ministration revenue bill, Majority
Leader Kitchin this afternoon opened
the debate on the measure in a speech

plain, while earnestly advocating the
bill's passage, that his feeling toward
the White House has not grown friend
ly. He also announced his intention to
oppose acquiescence by the house in
the senate's action increasing the naval
bill to :i51, 1)00,000.
Terming it a non-partisan measure,
Kitchin Baid the bill ought to command
the support of all republicans except a
few "extreme old time reactionaries,
such as Hill, Moore, and Fordney and
the men who gravitate toward them."
Plainly indicating he is not in harmnny
with all its provisions, Kitchin sad:
"I can see why some old fashioned
tariff reformers such aa myself would
vote against the bill because it con
tains soma pretty strong protective
"If it had not been for the prepared
ness appropriations we could have, run
the government without levying an
other dollar of taxation," he said.
"We are spending $273,000,000 addi
tional for preparedness and republi
cans and dempcrats alike are respontil
ble." He said if it was necessary to spend
the $125,000,000 appropriated for the
Mexican situation, this item would be
met bv issuance of bonds.
Kitchin, who has viewed the pre
paredness movement with alarm, said
that this "frenzy" seizing the coun
try, it was impossible to cut down the
bills of naval and military committees.
"8o far as the naval bill is con
cerned, however, the additions of the
senate, raising the total to $315,000,
