ST. JOHNS REVIEW
ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 28, 1922.
Having Qiilfe An Outing
Port Orford,' Oregon, July'20,
1922--Mr. 'A. W. Miirkle, Editor
St, -Johns Review Dear Sir: I
will writo you a few items of
our trip through Coos and Curry
couiitics. As we went through
Iloscburg, Southern Oregon, we
were ncurly cooked, ready to
serve, but when We got over tlio
Divide wc began to find it cooler.
The valley through Myrtle Point
is -very beautiful as well as fer
tile. The Roseburg-Coos Bay
Highway is very rougli and nar
row, and Jots of construction
work. When we reached Bandon
Beach oh, boyl wo thought we
had struck Greenland. My advice-
to our friends before start
ing '6u this journey to Bandon
put on all the wool underwear
you have and Mackinaw coats
anu wool trousers, ana tie your
nat on with n clothes line if you
expect to keep it. And be sure
and ahayc, for if you don't, the
wind will removo your whiskers
for you. I liavo caucht duito
lot of sea perch fisli here, and at
Mussell Creek caught quite
few big trout. Wo drove as fur
ns Cold Beach, did not like it
there and will go no further. Wo
find the benches in this country
too cold and windy. Thcro aro
too many bad detours and con
Ntruction work in this country at
the present time to make n vaca
tion a pleasure. Curry county is
wild and woolly. We saw the
deer feeding in the meadows on
the small ranches, signs up no
hunting or shooting, so I .was
contented just to watcli them
feeding, and drove on. Tho Mrs.
has gotten such a beautiful com
plexion since coming here all
the same as Siwash, ha, ha I Wo
aro now at Port Orford. camped
in the. park, and wo will soon bent
it out of hero and go to Tilla
mook where it is wanner. I won
der what is the matter with the
moonshine hunters.' I thought
Urcgon was a ury state It is
about as . much dry hero as the
Atlantic Ocean, if you take a trip
through Curry county. If thoy
keep on with thbf new highway
they are building it will have the
world beat for a scenic drive
Romothing different all the time
in the' way of' nuturc. You go
around rocky bluffs, under them
through cliffs overlooking tho
ocean' and beautiful mountain,
fltrenms. It is certainly a rough
country, but you don't need to
be a speed fiend to drive in this
country if you value your lifo
worth anything. J. B. Camp-bell.
Not Very Alluring
W. C. Walker has received the
following concerning Guam from
his son, Hazen 0. Walker, who
was stationed there for eighteen
Guam is a mass of trouble gat!
crcd on the western horizon of
civilization. It is bounded on the
north by rocks of destruction, on
the west by typhoons and smug
glers, on tho south by cart
quakes and on the east by font'
recollections of tho past. The
climate is a combination of clcc
trical changes and Li especially
adapted to the raising of "Bam
boo Lanes." The soil is very
fertile and produces large crops
of treachery and corruption. The
beast of burden is tho faithfu
caribou. On a thrco mile hike
only ten days' rations need bo
taken. The principal exports are
rice, tobacco, ncmp, copra, war
bulletins and slant-eyed students
The chief imports aro iodine, qui
nine, beer, whiskey, arras ami
ammunition. The native towns
arc an aggregation of palm
shacks, tilth, dogs ,cats, prize
chickens, pigs, lizards and na
tives and all other inhabitants
live on terms of equality. Last
but not least there is tho nativ
drink, "Agundicnto" which is a
conglomeration of thunder, light
ning, barb wire, fermented nee
die points, powder and brim
stone. One drink is a stagger,
two a tumble, three a fall and
four is suro death enough said.
Guam, Guam, beautiful Guam,
Land of breadfruit, banana and
Homo of Fandangoes, typhoons
And plenty of other things that
givo you the shakes.
Land of centipedes, scorpions
Cock roaches so big wo mistake
them for larks,
Mosquitos so small that wo can't
keep them out,
Rains most of the time so wo can
not go out.
Nothing to cut and nothing to
No plneo to go, so I stay at homo
Hades can't bo worse than this
Island of Guam:
Though I'm boiling inside I try
to keep calm.

turned from Bcllingham, where
