Crosno has prepar ed an exhibit of the coal taken from the Toledo mines to be for warded to C. B. Avers, Oregon mining commissioner of the World's fair, who will place it on exhibit ion at Chicago. The coal from this mine has been examined by an expert in San Francisco, who pro nounced it far superior in quality to any coal now mined on the coast and fully equal to the English coal which now sells in the San Fran cisco market for $15 per ton. There can be but little doubt that the mine will be a very valuable one when developed. The future prosperity of Toledo will depend to a great extent upon the liberality and public spiritetlness of her own citizens. The location of the county seat at Toledo has at tracted favorable attention to this point, id many people will come to seek 'homes or investments here. The people must continue their presentopen and hospi table manner to all new coiners. To those seek ing purchases property holders must not ask unreasonable prices. It is much better for a town to have a hundred men owning $500 worth of property each than fifty men owning a thousand dollars worth of property to every fine. Every man who becomes a property hold er in the town will become an advo cate for its advancement and devel opment. KKATHUl KKI'OKT KOII Ulllll AI1V ISICI. ng the month Mean temperajre 36.

McNEIL, DEALER IX Mm, Fainis ail CI Ik, Coiiiiiiinicated. Elk City, March 7, 1893. Editor Lkadur: Perhaps a line from this place would be of in terest to the readers of the new pa per. Elk City is quite an old town having been located here at the head of navigation as early as 1S66, soon after the Yaquina Bay was opened tip for settlement. At that time Elk City was the largest town on the bay, having special advant ages for a thriving village. The Big Elk and Yaquina river formed a junction here the military wagon road terminated nt this point and the stage line connected with the steam boat that conveyed passen gers' to Newport, the popular sea side resort of Oregon. These ad vantages made Elk City a flourish ing place for a n'tiniber of years. The town was then composed of two hotels, two dry goods stores, blacksmith shop one livery stable, one cabinet shop, one brick yard, post office and a good district school. But owing to a want of public spirit in building up the town at the proper time- it -went intft decline and other points along the4ay took the lead. Since the railroadAvas puilt the wagon road has greatly diminished, but Elk City has again taken an air of progress ahd pros perity and will at no distant day be one of the best towns on the bay. The town h now composed of one good hotel, one store, postoffice and a good public school. Of the old settlers only one remains and that is Mr. M. W. Simpson, who owns a nice firm and passes his leisure hours fishing for the beautiful trout which abound hete in great num bers 1 We are .surrounded with a rich agriculturni country capable of producing large crops of hay, vege tables and fine fruits of all kind, the soil being rich and productive from the bottom to the top of the highest hills.
