IF IT'S GOOD WE HAVE IT Washington. The total production of coal In Oregon In 1908, as shown by statistics collected by B. W. Park er of the United States geological sur vey was 86,258 short tons, having a spot value of $236,021. Oregon, like California, Is one of the few states in which the coal pro duction In 1908 showed an Increase over that of the preceding year, which was 70,981 short tons, the 1908 output being therefore a gain of 15, 278 short tons, or 21.52 per cent; the value increased from $166,304 to $236,021, a guln of $69,717, or 41.92 per cent. All of the coal produced came from the Coos Hay field In Coos bounty, and the increased production ;n 1908 was due to an Increased ac tivity at the Heaver Hill mines. All of the Heaver Hill coal was washed, the operations yielding 70 per cent of cleaned coal and 30 per cent of ref use. The refuse, however, contains a sufficient quantity of combustible material to permit Its use as fuel in the operation of the mines. The coal from this field Is of a lignite charac ter. Transportation Is confined exclu sively to Coos bay and the Pacific ocean, and the city of San Francisco is the principal market. The large amount of construction work in volved in the rebuilding of San Fran cisco is the principal cause for the In creased production of Oregon lignite. The average number of men em ployed Increased from 184 in 1907 to 214 In 1908, and the average number of days worked Increased from 231 to 249. There were no labor disturb ance during the year. According to the estimates pre pared by M. R. Campbell of the geo logical survey the coal bearing for mations of Oregon are limited to an area of 230 square miles, the original contents of which are placed by Mr. Campbell, at 1.000,000,000 short tons. Coal was first noted In the Coos Ray region about 50 years ago, Pro fessor J. S. Newberry having .reported In 1855 that the coal deposits of Coos Hay had begun to attract attention. ABOUT THE CITY New Concrete Walk. Attorney J. B. Perry Is putting down a new concrete walk In front of his South Main street residence. Visitors From Coos County. J.

Nate Raines has purchased 100 head of fat steers from Charles Case. They are said to have been In excep tionally fine condition and will be shipped to the Seattle market about the 15th of this month. The price paid was In the neighborhood of 4 cents per pound. Union Pacific Officials Through.

Then, after she has tried all the shoes In the store and bought a single pair, she can return them and get her money back if they pinch her foot when she gets home. This was the decisiion handed down by Municipal Judge Gemmill In the case of ,Miss R. Louise Jacobson against the State Street Shoe Shop. Miss Jacobson said when she re turned the shoes the firm offered her a credit memorandum for the amount she had paid. She demanded her ' money back and when the firm re- j fused to give It to her she sued. A j letter on which the president of the ' firm said Miss Jacobson had taken j up so much of the salesmen's time he could not return her money was the I cause of the court's ruling. "This is not a question of how much ' time a woman takes up in buying her ; shoes. Her privilege is to take as much time as she thinks she needs to insure a good fit. Judgement for the plaintiff."

He plays dead talks as best he can, says his prayers, walks lame, etc., for the money there In In It. All the money the dog earns he keeps In a box in the rear of the store, and when an Inventory was taken there was more than enough to pay Mux s license.
