Pioneer reunion  Xmas  character?  P-23 CCH Dec 11, 1894
Judge Schroeder will celebrate Christmas eve with a family reunion, which
will number about seventy persons in all, including those added by marriage.
Grandpa and Grandma Schroeder will be the central figures of the joyous
occasion, and undoubtedly it will be a happy meeting to all as it will rank
among the very rare family reunions of anything like so large a number of
persons in this section of Oregon. These pioneers in this valley and coast
country hold the esteem and respect of all, and congratulations of many will
attend them on this festive reunion.  +

 climate  Lhc  P-24  CCH random Dec 11, 1894 .  
[Sub head ] A severe Wind Storm    [centered]
Visited this section a little after midnight Saturday night – the worst for many
a day.  It broke in on us at that silent hour and poured forth almost ceaselessly
for three hours, and then it came at intervals of quarter or half an hour,
varying in fury, throughout Sunday.
   At this place much uneasiness was felt, the houses generally shaking in such
a manner as to cause fear, either to and for the occupants themselves, or for
neighbors and friends.  The damage resulting, however, was most agreeably
light.  One old unoccupied house at the foot of Henry street, known as the
Armfield house, was lifted from its pins and broken somewhat.  Asaph
Alexson had about 300 bushels of potatoes stored in the building the weight of
which undoubtedly evaded further damage.
   The Provit Dean house, occupied temporarily by Robert Dean’s family,
shook fearfully and kept all awake and in dread. A window blew in and no
lights or fire could be used, which added to the unrest of the family.  The
house stood the storm, however.
   One or two families sought shelter in their woodsheds.
   Benham’s woodshed, and outbuildings in other parts of town were wrecked.
   Lyons’ mill suffered to the extend of some of the roof blowing off and the
breaking of a guy-rod on the smoke stack.
   The road between this city and Myrtle Point was blockaded with fallen trees.
   At Norway Will McCloskey’s house was badly damaged, but the family
escaped.  The schoolhouse will probably have to be rebuilt.
   The wind seems to have played most havoc at Myrtle Point.  Steve Reed’s
house and barn were both wrecked.  The Methodist church was lifted off its
foundation and much injured, while other slight damage was visited all around
the place.
   On the lower river the storm raged fearfully, but not much damage is
reported.  At Bandon Perkins’ barn was damaged; one of the public water-
tank [no s in print] was blown in; Sam McAdams’ new blacksmith shop was
turned “end for end;” the chimney at the new schoolhouse and scaffolding
were blown down.  The surf broke high over Table rock and for two or three
miles up the river could be seen dashing above the sand hills.  The shed at the
old Von Pegert cannery was demolished.
   The county roads, and in fact all the roads are blockaded by fallen trees, and
in some exposed places, where the roots failed to yield, great trees were
twisted off and leveled to the ground.
   A large tree was blown down at Beaver Hill mines, falling across a shed and
destroying it and close to a horse which escaped injury.  T.A. King’s barn on
the isthmus [sic] was blown down, killing two yearlings, while other stock
escaped. 
   All in all, this was the worst storm we personally have experienced on the
coast.  +
