Poetry  Lhc-ref   P-1  CCH Oct 10, 1893
For the Coquille City Herald.
       By H. B. Swafford.
Iv'e [print] traveled over many lands—
  Lands fair as e'er the sun shone on;
Where beauty smiles and wealth abounds,
  But none more fair than Oregon.

With rapture high I've viewed earth's scenes—
  Scenes which no human pen or tongue
Could half describe -- yet none more fair
  Than the fair scenes of Oregon.

Amazed I've viewed earth's awful hights [print]—
  As grand as e'er man looked upon—
But none more grand, none more sublime
  Than snowy peaks of Oregon.

Great Mississippi, and the rest—
  Grand rivers, I have sailed upon;
But most delightful sail of all
  Was up Columbia, Oregon.

Of luscious fruits I've had my share,
  These forty years I've traveled on—
But, bless my life, this beats them all!
  These luscious fruits of Oregon.

I have been where the few lived high—
  Where wealth could bid all want be gone;
But here the poor who will may feast,
  And none need starve in Oregon.

I have been where mean pests abound—
  Ticks, bedbugs, graybacks, snakes and so on;
But from all such we are exempt
  Away out here in Oregon.

The thunderstorms and wild cyclones
  Which sweep the trembling earth along,
"Hunt other game" and pass us by
  Away out here in Oregon.

A few of earth's heroes I've seen,
  Whose mighty fame must aye live on;
But none more worthy, none more brave,
  Than those who fought for Oregon.

I've seen fair women -- that I have;
  And we admire them, every one;
But none more fair and none more pure
  Than the sweet, brave girls of Oregon.

And then, the boys -- God bless them all!
  For we love them every one;
God bless our girls, our mothers too—
On the Big Road, Sept. 26,1893

Silk Kanematz  expo  P-2 CCH Oct 10, 1893
[M2004.  This full article is now also in Bcooshistory Topical Kanematz.]
Head: OUR SILK EXHIBIT. Sub: Now an Attraction at the Exposition at
   The Oregonian of the 6th inst. makes mention of Prof. Kanematz' silk
exhibit from this city in the following words:
   Two exhibits have come in since the fair opened, both of them modest in
size but representing industries of great importance to Oregon. One of them is
a chunk of bituminous coal weighing 100 pounds, taken from a six-foot vein
within 21 miles of Portland. * * *
The other exhibit is that of silk cocoons and raw silk from the Southern
Oregon Silk Station, at Coquille City. This experiment station is under the
charge of J. S, Kanematz, A.B., who is endeavoring to introduce silk culture
into the state and make it one of Oregon's most valuable industries. Mr.
Kanematz says that notwithstanding the season was cold and wet and
unfavorable for silk culture, he has done very well and demonstrated the fact
that Oregon can produce as good a quality of silk as any country in the world.
In quality, the silk is superior to that produced in any of the eastern states. and
equal to any of the best in France, Italy and Japan. This silk is unparalled in its
tenacity. The cocoons are no larger, but are heavier, and each yields 3 per cent
more reeled silk than cocoons produced elsewhere. Silkworm eggs and
instruction in silk culture will be free to anyone who applies to Mr. Kanematz.
Here is an industry the women of Oregon can engage in, adding materially to
the family income and in the aggregate making an important source of wealth
for the state. +    [red tilde]

Some of the savings effected by the breakwater at the mouth of our river may
be surmised by the following: A resident near Bandon was the first that ever
brought a wagon into this section of the country on board one of the little
schooners that used to come in here at that time from San Francisco. He was
charged and paid $50 freight for it to the owner of the vessel, Messrs. Grube
& Rink, who owned the little sawmill near Judge Lowe’s place on the lower
river. He tells us he can now get the same sized wagon here for $5 from the
same place, and thereby effect a saving of 900 per cent on the freight of this
one article alone.  +
