(Coos Bay News)  Peter Galton, while employed in rafting logs with Wm.
Burnit, at Sumner, Friday last, went into the woods, a short distance from the
railroad track, to cut some pike poles.  He was rather surprised on finding a
deserted camp under a fallen tree, and, upon investigating, discovered a rusty
double-barrelled shotgun, which he recognized as one he formerly owned, and
which had been borrowed from John McDuff by Johnny Manning.  It is
thought that this was one of Johnny's hiding places, after he escaped from jail
at Empire, prior to his departure for California.  +

silkworm has been demonstrated by the careful experiments of Coos County. 
Working on entirely independent lines, Mr. W. B. Ban (sp?) Japanese resident
of  Portland, is developing the silk producing business in Portland.  2 years
ago, he imported 1000 mulberry trees fm Japan, and planted them on a ten
acre farm in the suburbs of Portland. Last spring he made a successful
importation of silkworms from Japan and has been vy successful in
propagating them and is now making raw silk.

     Are we equal to our opportunity?  Towns and cities do not grow; they are
made. And the success or failure of a town invariably depends upon the public
spirit and wise management of its entire population...  A large class of people
in a town are apt to imagine that capital is all that is needed to build up a
prosperous business center.  This is a great mistake.,,             +

     So began an article on Coquille City in the year 1895, under the headline of
"What of our future?"  The editor cites the case of Seattle, Washington, which
"had the opportunity of becoming the great commercial center of the
northwest coast.”  The editor points out that borrowed money built “immense
brick and stone blocks...until the whole city was mortgaged to foreign capital,
and now there sits the blood-sucking capital drawing the life blood from every
business enterprise, and Seattle is handicapped and ruined...  (Unless capital)
forms an alliance...with the laboring, agricultural and business elements of the
town...it will become a vampire to eat out the life of the community."
     Seattle at that time must have been going through a crisis, for of course
modern readers know that it did thrive and grow as a town, and then as a
metropolis, in spite of the perils of outside capitalists.  However, his
comments about Coquille City might bear thinking about even today.

     Coquille City has opportunities today such as few towns in the west enjoy. 
First, we are at the very center of all this coast country, and all of the
transportation lines radiate for [print] this point. The whole upper and lower
river valleys as well as much of the bay country can and ought to be made
tributary to Coquille City in matters of business and trade. There is no place in
all this coast country where manufacturing can be done so successfully and
profitably as at this point. The facilities for bringing together the raw
materials, and. of distributing the finished product of factories, are
unsurpassed.  There is no more pleasant, healthful place to live in Coos county
than this; far enough from the coast to escape the sharp ocean breezes, and yet
near enough to get the full benefit of the tempered coast winds.

     ...One thing must be kept constantly in mind; that is, that all these
favorable conditions combined will not build a town.  It depends finally upon
the combined efforts of the people of Coquille themselves.  If the people break
up into rings and cliques they will never succeed. The masses of the people
must have confidence in each other and in the businessmen and the
businessmen must have confidence in the people, and there mast be harmony
and concert of action.  Then there must be energy on the part of all.  If a man
comes into our midst with a proposition to engage in any legitimate business it
is the duty of every citizen to extend to him every possible encouragement in
the way of
location, etc., and make him feel that if he comes he will be welcomed by the
whole community.  It will kill any town on earth for the businessmen to
combine among themselves to keep out other business enterprises because
they may come into competition with their own. A country is not developed
by a class, even though it be a moneyed class; as witness Oklahoma. It takes
the brain, the brawn, the muscle and sinew of the entire people to develop a
country and build towns. And now, the question is, has Coquille City the
brain, the brawn, the energy and the loyalty to the best interest of the town and
country to make the most of her opportunities?  If she has, no amount of
competition at other points can keep her from forging ahead. We shall see.  +

"what needed," Coq
     ...The question of permanently locating the county seat is to be voted upon
in the near future, and it is an admitted fact that Coquille City is the most
central, and therefore the most eligible location in the county. Taking these
and many other
points into account the opportunity is before us of becoming the business
center of all this middle west coast country. Are we equal to the opportunity?

Oct 22,l895.
We hear almost daily of new business enterprises being planned by some of
our neighboring towns for the furthering of the best interests of the towns
themselves and the country surrounding them. This is notably true of Bandon,
our neighbor at the mouth of the Coquille. One would almost be led to think
that the citizens of Bandon lie awake nights devising ways and means to
introduce new business enterprises for the benefit of their town. If a man
comes to Coos county with a purpose to start into business he goes almost
direct to Bandon, and why? Well, he knows that there every facility will be
afforded him to begin business. A site will be given him if it is a factory he is
proposing to start, and
every other encouragement, he knows, will be extended to him in making a
beginning.  That is the kind of a town business men love to go into to embark
on business. There is no reason in this world why Coquille should not be
starting new business enterprises also, and going ahead of all other places...
Coquille City is the natural place for manufacturing and all other leading
kinds of business. It is just as easy and cheap to ship from here to San
Francisco as it is to ship from Bandon. The improvements going on at the
mouth of the river ought to insure to the advantage of Coquille as much as to
Bandon. Our central location, our deep water navigation, our railroad, our
wonderfully rich agricultural and dairy lands, our mills, our coal mines near
by; in fact our everything invites the people of Coquille to activity and
growth.  What, then, is the matter that we let other towns outstrip us in the
race of progress? Is it not simply that we are not trying? Of
course, if the business men of Coquille wrap themselves up in their own
businesses, and take no time to think of the public good, and of what is
necessary for the general progress of the town and country, we will continue
to drag on at the same old snails pace and other places will capture the crown
we of Coquille ought to wear. Our merchants ought to be courting the trade of
the whole upper and lower river. There are many ways to do this, and other
towns are doing it...  It
can be done by making it to the advantage of the people to trade here and then
by letting them know it. Friends, let us arouse ourselves and get to work.

Bom 2 Oct 22, 1895
     The wide-awake people of Bandon have set upon foot a plan for
stimulating immigration to the Coquille country...
This plan is to send some sensible, reliable man east to attend the Atlanta
Exposition, and travel and lecture on the resources and possibilities of this
valley throughout a number of the states. The idea is not to misrepresent the
country and climate, not over-estimate them, but to simply tell the truth, and
represent matters so that sensible people who come in consequence of this
effort will find the country as described.  The plan is certainly a feasible one
and worthy of consideration. It is not the intention, we learn, to solicit
immigration from the poorer classes, but from well-to-do people who will
bring some money and be able to purchase homes, establish factories and
other business enterprises, which are so much needed here for the
development of the country.  
     If the right person is selected it will be a profitable investment.  We hear
the name of Rev. G. R. Edmunds mentioned in connection with the enterprise,
and we see no reason why Mr. Edmunds would not be a suitable person to
represent this country abroad.   ...the Herald will be pleased to lend all
possible encouragement to the project.  We invite our Bandon neighbors to
communicate with Coquille in the matter...

                                   “Ward Heeler *No 1” --  After the Herald.
          MARSHFIELD, OR., Dec 18,1897. 
     ED. HERALD:  Your paper seems to take considerable interest in our business over here.  I mean me and Graham. This belongs to us, not to you or yours, and you and the people can be d----d.  We run things to suit ourselves in the town election, and elected our man Carter, and we own the voters right here.  They wear our brand and go by number.  You will know our marshal, [sic] by the suit of clothes he wears.  We make all of our officers wear uniforms; it pleases the eye and makes the heart of the Watson faction sad; in fact drives them to strong drink, seven-up and the Russians.  But me and Graham can't help this.  This county has been handled before by a man who knows he is better than the scrub voter and the ordinary workingman, and it's going to be run again, and you cusses that went back on the management last election have got to pay the fiddler, too.  Did you see our first political bombshell in the Coast Mail -- our paper; the one that belongs to the better classes?  It was entirely “corporate influences”; it plainly called your correspondent a ”driveling idiot”, and so he is.  Neither you nor him nor anyone you have in your poverty-stricken rank and file can get onto our work; we are so smooth.  Your following don't even know enough to find out how thick the Republican whitewash is over the Coast Mail and its imported Belfast "veneered" Republican editor, Lord Barry, of the Marshfield "Irishtocracy," and we won't permit you to, either.  You are not of the right kind and must keep your place; familiarity breeds contempt. 
     The railroad company in the past four years is the only institution that kept you from starving. That’s what we say in our first “hot shot,” and that’s right, too.  We gave you work and treated you just as well as we did our horses, mules, hogs and cattle; yes, every bit as well.  You got your board and clothes, so did our mules.  We furnished our mules with stables, because mules cost money, but you and your kind can be got for the asking; therefore our mules are better than you – see!  How’s that for a “corporate influence, you “driveling idiots?”
     The railroad company has "saved your families from idleness and starvation," as "our paper" most truthfully says, and you know it, you base, vile, incorrigible and ungrateful scrubs.  Answer me, some of you that can: Were you not in "idleness and starvation" before me and Graham came to your rescue?  You know you were; it’s a fact.  How are you now?  We did it all -- just me and Graham; you can't even lay it to McKinley, Klondike, or starvation in Europe.  If you say this puff of prosperity is caused by shortage elsewhere and other misfortunes you state an untruth and are a "Pop," [sic; ie, Populist?] and will bankrupt the nation; but we won't let you.  We were shreud [sic; = shrewd] enough to mortgage it to death ahead of you, put you on a gold basis and pocket the proceeds.  We'll fix you yet, you “dollar-a-day-and-pay-your-own-board” intellectual giants of the “rag-tag and bob-tail.”
     Some "six-bit" upstart in your insane camp no doubt will say that because me and Graham has done all these things that it gives us no right to run politics; that we should attend to our commercial interests and not interfere with political issues.  This same crank will tell you, too, that every man who has worked for the railroad has given it his hard honest labor in exchange for his wages, and that the railroad has received full value for all money paid out and that the contracting parties are square, but we tell you the man who advocates such a preposterous doctrine is an anarchist and should be shot, and corporate influences will do it, too, when the time comes.  Hunger tames the most ferocious beasts, and before long, when you ask for bread, me and Graham will "give you a stone."
     Now, in conclusion, I would say that if you don't fall humbly into line and wear our brand -- which will be an asterisk -- before next election we will pull our railroad up and an take it and the coal mine right up to Canada, where we belong, as we are not naturalized and don't ever intend to become citizens of your rotten commonwealth.
     Come up and get your brand and number.

                                  The Climate of Coos County, Oregon.
                                            By  B.  S.  PAGUE.
Coquille City HERALD,
                            U. S. WEATHER BUREAU, {  [2-line vertical bracket]
                                PORTLAND,, Dec. 17, 1897.
     Climates are of two kinds, marine and continental.  The continental is that having marked and rapid temperature changes, with irregular winds; the marine that having a nearly equable temperature, and winds varying with the seasons of the year.  Coos county is classed in the latter variety.  Meteorological observations have been made at Bandon, on the shore of the ocean, for the past 24 years by George Bennett, esq., [sic] and it is upon his record that this article is based.  It should be remembered that topographical features modify and change climatic conditions, so that while the record is accurate for Bandon small variations from it would be found if applied to the Coquille and other valleys removed from the immediate coast.  The variations, however, are hardly sufficient to produce a material difference.
                           GEOGRAPHICAL AND TOPOGRAPHICAL.
     Coos county is in the southwestern portion of Oregon, separated from California by Curry county; it borders on the Pacific ocean with a coast line of about 60 miles.  It is separated from Douglas county by the coast range [sic] of mountains on the east and by an imaginary line on the north; it lies between the 43rd and 44th degree north latitude and the 124th degree west longitude passes through nearly the center of the county.  The county is heavily timbered, consisting of fir, cedar, maple, ash, myrtle and mountain mahogany.  A large portion of the county is rolling [sic].  There is a large portion of tide land [sic] which is valuable if dyked [sic].  There is quite gradual inclination from the ocean beach to the Cascade mountains.  The county is drained by the Coquille Coos and tributary rivers.
     The mean annual temperature is 52 degrees; the coldest month is January, when the mean is 45 degrees, and July and August are the warmest, with a mean of 59 [sic? Or illegible] average mean temperature and allows of its classification in the marine climate list.  The coldest month on record is January 1888, when the mean was 40 degrees, and August, 1891, [sic] is the warmest, having a mean of 65 degrees.  The highest temperature on record is 92 degrees, and it occurred in September, 1888.  The maximum temperature in the summer months ranges about 65 degrees; in the winter months about 50 degrees.  The lowest temperature on record is 13 degrees, and it occurred in January, 1888.  The occurrence was during the phenomenal cold wave when orange trees were frozen in California.  The extreme cold each year is seldom below 20 degrees above zero.  Freezing temperatures are liable to occur from October to May.  Their occurrence is rare and of short duration.  The average mean temperature is 41 degrees in January; in July and August the average lowest is 56.  While the county has a mild and uniform temperature, it also has a heavy rainfall.
                                              THE RAINFALL  [sic, no period.]
[sic; no indent] Averages 69 inches annually and the county would be classed among those having an excessive amount.  The greatest population of the world reside where the rainfall is about 50 inches.  There are sections of the county, owing to local topography, where the annual amount is less and in some others it is more.  About 70 per cent [sic] of the annual amount occur [sic] from November 1st to April 1st.  From April 1st the rainfall rapidly decreases to July and August, when the average is but 1 inch for both months.  In January, 1897, 23 inches of rain fell which is the largest amount for any one month.  It often occurs that no rain falls in July and August.  These figures show a wide range in the monthly distribution of the rains.  The climate along the immediate coast is a moist one, while removed from the coast some 20 miles the same degree of moisture does not exist.  While there is little difference in the total rainfall, yet the comparative absence of fogs in the interior make [sic] the actual humidity of the air less.  Snow falls occasionally, but seldom to remain on the ground longer than for a few hours.  Sleighing and coasting are pleasures unknown.
     The copious rainfall makes the county peculiarly adapted to dairying, for it insures luxuriant and green grass every day of the year.  The wool produced in this county is rarely excelled for texture, length of staple, and for purity.  A mill within the county that manufactures woolen goods and conditions favorable for flocks of sheep and the growth of wool should make the county an ideal one for sheep raising [sic].
     The soil and climatic conditions appear to be favorable for cranberry culture in the valley of the Coquille and in other portions of the county.  Cranberries will become a most profitable crop.
     The valleys, removed from the immediate coast, are peculiarly adapted to some varieties of fruit, and especially berries.  Apples, pears, prunes and cherries are prolific crops year after year.  Wheat, oats and barley yield large returns, and hay is a natural product.  In some sections corn makes a good crop, and in the same section peaches do well.  Though the county ranks 15th in population, it ranks first in production of coal, 6th in production of coal [sic], 3d in production of cheese and butter, and this, too, with markets several hundred miles away.  Potatoes and other root crops are most prolific in yield.
                                                     THE SOIL.
     The soil is sandy, and in portions heavily mixed with humus, formed from the decaying vegetation of centuries.  There is no richer soil than that which is formed from this combination.
     To brief the foregoing it is found that the climate is mild in temperature, the rainfall is heavy, the soil rich and production varied and prolific.  The influence of the ocean and mountains makes the region healthful.  With improved means of transportation and development of natural conditions the county will shortly rank second to none.  +

                                              MERRY MASQUERADERS.
                                     A Grand Ball Given by the Woodmen New
                                                          Year’s Eve.
      The masquerade given in this place New Year’s eve is admittedly the largest and most successful entertainment ever given in Coquille City.  Its attendance was the largest – the utmost capacity of the hall – and was the most brilliant, enjoyable and popular assemblage ever given here.  The gallant Woodmen spared no pains to receive and entertain all who would come and warrant them kindly attention and hospitality.  The committee of arrangements, on reception, and floor managers were all, [sic] attention to minister to friends and visitors in every demand for comfort and pleasure.  By 9 o’clock the house was crowded to excess, so many pleasure seekers coming from Myrtle Point and intervening points, from the North Fork, Beaver Hill and everywhere.  Many of these, too, were among the masqueraders, adding to the spectacle and the enjoyment of all present.
     Leach’s orchestra furnished the music, and this, too, excelled former efforts, was enjoyed and favorably commented on. 
     Mrs. R. E. Buck, Ms. W. S. Perry and W. J. Fairman were chosen as the committee to award the prizes, one each to the gentleman and lady representations.  The result of award was: Mrs. Al Hite of Bandon received a handsome and well-merited prize, representing a bat; and Mrs. Ed. [sic] Rackleff splendidly played the role of a Woodman and received the gentleman’s prize.
     There were 90-odd maskers and fully as many more who took in the dances, while the crowd of spectators was three or four times as many more.  The grand march was a maze of evolutions and attractive display, and was conducted by R. E. Buck and Miss Ella.  We could not do justice in mentioning the characters, for the crowd was too great to be interviewed, and with the exception of a few we shall name – aside from the prize-winners – we shall content ourselves with the statement that all so creditably performed their parts and behaved so well that their presence was most agreeable and welcome.  Misses Mary Nosler and Belle Jackson looked well and went to considerable pains in preparation of their costumes as representatives of the “Portland Rope Factory.”  Their costumes were both odd and handsome.  The Indian and his squaw – Novie Little and Jessie Beyers – were clever, looking and acting well.  “Two Little Girls in [illegible] were good, Daisy Dene [sic?  or illegible] was Mrs. McDonald; “THE HERALD” was represented charmingly and uniquely by Miss Clara Gage (our thanks, Miss Clara), the clown was Is Nosler; Tug [sic] Wilson, as a negro [sic] scored a point.  Several visiting ladies and gentlemen aced well and looked well, but we could give them no interview and did not know them.
     The managing committeemen were ubiquitous and courteous.  They served as doorkeepers, also, and turned into the Woodmen’s fund these sums, severally, as the gross receipts of the ball; John Simmons, $74.75; W. Rose, $21.50; J. W. Leneve, $5; George Robinson, $8; R. S. Knowlton, $18.  Total, $126.76.
     The Woodmen are to be congratulated for this so creditable and successful an effort of providing a social event [sic].  +

A Tory Irishman Held Up.  [head, centered, bold, larger than text; medium margins.]
[short line-under]
                                            MARSHFIELD, Dec. 31, 1897.
     HERALD:  In the Coast Mail of December 25th it has quoted thus:  “It was stated in debate
in the British parliament, by Mr. Campbell Bannerman, that the famous Cameron Highlanders, whose pibroch [sic] rose wild and high at Waterloo, is now filled with East Londoners, and is really, therefore, a regiment of cockneys disguised as mountaineers; and Lord Beresford became very tired of the Scotch racket over the gay, gallant Gordons, the men from the banks of the Dee and Don [sic], so he went to the war office and discovered that the Gordan Highlanders, who stormed the heights of Dhorgai [sic] were mainly Irishmen, and that even the famous piper who played ‘Cock-o’-the-North’, savage and shrill, after being shot through both legs, was an Irishman, who said, ‘arrah be aisy.’ “ [sic]
     Mr. Editor, just allow me a small space to nail that slander on my beloved countrymen.  The editor of the Coast Mail is just as fully aware as the writer of this note that the British army is composed of English, Scotch, Irish and Welsh regiments, with the rank and file of each recruited in their respective countries.  Now, supposing an Irishman wanted to join the colors of the Gordon Highlanders, he would have to claim at least that he was born in Scotland, which I am sure no self-respecting Irishman would do.  There is too much love of country in him for that, therefore the editor of the Coast Mail, maybe unwittingly, does his countrymen an injustice.
     In all the wars that Britain has engaged in since ever I can remember, Highlanders are always accorded the post of honor; i. e., in the very front of the battle.  They seem to be the superstructure of the British army, which it is built upon, and this is what makes Lord Beresford and other light calibre [sic] tired and jealous.  Lord Beresford is one of those harmless cranks of the George Francis Train pattern, whom nobody takes as serious.  Both believe, of course, they are uncrowned kings.
     The other part of the yarn is too ridiculous to discuss.  Just imagine in your mind’s eye a knock-kneed spindle-shanked cockney standing in the ranks dressed in Highland costume!  Why, man, he would be like a scare-crow in a potato field.  The editor of the Coast Mail will tell us next that his countrymen fought the battle of Bannockburn! 
“Breathes there a man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said
This is my own, my native land.”

     When your stomach begins to trouble you, it needs help.  The help it needs, is to digest your food, and until it gets it, you won’t have any peace.  Stomach trouble is very distressing, very obstinate, very dangerous.  Many of the most dangerous diseases begin with simple indigestion.  The reason is that indigestion (not-digestion, not-nourishment) weakens [parens sic; not, and weakens, in italics] the system and allows disease germs to attack it.  The antidote is Shaker Digestive Cordial, strengthening, nourishing, curative.  It cures indigestion and renews strength and health.  It does this by strengthening the stomach, by helping it to digest your food.  It nourishes you. [nourish, in italics]  Shaker Digestive Cordial is made of pure herbs, plants, and wine, is perfectly harmless and will certainly cure all genuine stomach trouble.  Sold by druggists, price 10 cents to $1.00 per bottle.  +

THE LABOR EXCHANGE.  [head, bold, spans the column.  2 thin double lines above and below head.] 
[short line-under]
Prosperity Made to Order.  [subhead, centered, bold, smaller than text; medium margins.]
     The scheme of Denver Real Estate Exchange, Denver Chamber of Commerce, Denver Mining Exchange and other organizations of respectable business men to promote prosperity by calling a mass-meeting [sic] and resoluting [sic], presents one of the strange anomolies [sic] of a rapidly approaching crisis.  It reminds us of a scene we witnessed in Chicago, the second night of the great fire of 1871.  At that time the fire had reached the city limits on the north side, and was sweeping with irresistable [sic] force in a north-westerly direction, consuming everything in its path.  Nothing could withstand the onward march of the devastating flames.  Right in the track of the approaching fire we saw a crowd of men and boys frantically pulling on a long rope fastened to a small frame cottage, vainly endeavoring to pull it away from the devouring element.  The owner of the cottage was running about like a demented person, urging his neighbors to renewed exertions, and wildly imploring them to save his little home.
     The frantic efforts of the small business men [sic] of Denver to save themselves from threatened ruin is about as ludicrous as the scene we have described.  Unfortunately, there is a sad side to this picture, as well as to the other.  These dealers in an owners [sic] nature’s [sic] bounties are beginning to see very plainly the calamity which sooner or later must overtake many of them.  They attribute the approaching catastrophe to every cause but the true one, consequently blindly seek relief in impossibilities.
    Significant indeed was the remark made by one of the speakers at the mass-meeting on Tuesday evening that he saw “none of the city’s millionaires in the audience.”  Equally significant was the statement made by another speaker that probably not more than a dozen of those present had a comfortable bank account.  These remarks told the whole tale.  The millionaires of Denver are not worrying about hard times or the delay of prosperity; they are not troubled about their bank accounts, or fearful of being driven into bankruptcy in the near future.  These men are in possession of the whole works; they are part and parcel of that giant octopus usually denominated “the money power,” which already has the country in its tenacious grasp, and consequently have little reason to fear the hard times.
     “Business is good, but profits are small,” said Wolfe Londoner at the meeting in question; therefor Mr. Londoner, who handles thousands of dollars worth of goods every day, is fairly contented.  But with the small dealer around the corner profits are equally small, and the amount of daily business done by him is but a small percentage of that done by the larger concern.  The meeting was attended by representatives of those small business men, by owners of and dealers in real estate, who are hungering for the flesh-pots which have passed from them never, never to return.
     Prosperity cannot be made by mass-meetings, or by resolving that Colorado’s climate and resources beat the world.  Neither can it be induced by appeals to support home industry under the capitalistic methods of production and distribution.  The disease is not merely local, it is universal, and the remedy must be equally radical and far-reaching.  The fact is, the era of private capitalism is at an end.  We shall never have permanent prosperity, or anything like it, until capitalism gives place to co-operation.  The Labor Exchange points the way to permanent, universal prosperity; not only this, but it provides for justice and fraternity.  –Labor Exchange Guide.  +

About Angora Goats.  [head, centered, bold, smaller than text.  Medium margins.]
[short line-under]
     “X” writes to the Roseburg Review from Cleveland, Douglas county, thus:
     “L. A. Marsters, of Cleveland, has just arrived from Coos county with a flock of fine angora goats.  He purchased them of his father, Rev. C. B. Marsters, and will make a specialty of breeding fine angora goats hereafter.  Rev. C. B. Marsters  has been a noted breeder of angoras for the past 25 years.  He commenced breeding them in California, kept them there several years, then moved with them to Oregon.  He purchased a tract of land on the opposite side of the river from this city, where he lived several years.  His angora goats used to ramble over the mountain which is now known as Mt. Nebo, afterwards he moved to Coos county where he now resides.  Mr. Marsters thinks that nearly every farmer in the northwest [sic]  ought to have a small flock of angora goats.  He claims that these fine animals are very profitable to clear brush land with [sic].  One can cut the brush off the land and pasture them on the segments, it will only be two to four years until one can plow the land [sic].  It seems like “oak grub sprouts” make fine pasture for them, and they will eat the sprouts in preference to grass.  One can see what goats have done in the way of clearing land by driving past Mr. Long’s in Cole’s valley.  He has almost cleared his entire farm of oak grubs.         [sic, no quote-mark] X.”  +
