Interest  entertain circus  "first"  .saying  RPs2 July 2, 1895
Mr. Robinson, who is one of the oldest and best known agents in the circus
business, having been identified with the large shows of the country for 25
years past, informs the Plaindealer that the expenses of the great Wallace
shows run from $3,200.00 to $400.00 per day, the larger part of which sum is
expended in the city where they exhibit.  This is a tidy figure, and in dull
times like these the show should be eagerly welcomed and liberally patronized
by all classes of the community.
   The modern "big circus" is an institution peculiar to America.  "The old
world shows are small comparatively, and the mammoth concerns we have are
thoroughly characteristic of our country and our people, and even if the lion
on the fence is sometimes bigger than the lion in the cage, no man visiting the
up-to-date three-ring circus has never [sic] been heard to say he did not get his
money's worth over and over again. Long may the great American circus
wave, and continue to delight and dazzle the young and the old with its
"Multitudious monopoly of all that is magnificent and marvelous on this
mundane sphere," [sic] to borrow the language of the posters.

CBR other-coal Srh? Saying?  Condit  RPs1 July 8, 1895
Other evidences come to light that the Coos Bay railroad is under a lucky star. 
We are properly advised that parties in San Francisco are making elaborate
preparations for exploring coal fields lying west of Myrtle Point.  The
interesting consideration is that unless the railroad shall be extended in the
direction of Roseburg, these coal beds can not be utilized.  Wealthy parties at
Los Angeles are interested in the examination, with the idea in view, that
vessels could run from San Pedro direct to Coos bay.  To what extent they
would proceed with the business of investigation etc., unless in the sweet by
and by rails of the Coos Bay road would expand under the heat of a Roseburg
sun, is a question free for all.   +

RR-extension  condit  saying  RPs1 July 8, 1895 
The Coos bay road is looming up for recognition again.  The Plaindealer is
keeping in touch with the railroad situation and as soon as further
developments appear they will be given to the people.  Gentlemen, keep your
seats with patience, the light comes from the east.  It is beginning to dawn.   +

Ed. Plaindealer: Dear Sir:  The world has now entered upon the great
transition period of 1000 years, known as the millenium, and which began on
or about May 1st, 1882.  This transition will result in a complete change of
administration in the world, from Satan to God.  But just now we are
approaching the world’s greatest season of trouble, of deep, sore distress of
nations, with perplexity, the sea and waves of human passion roaring.  Strife,
tumult, war and famine will desolate the land.  How long these things will
continue I know not, but believe that several generations will melt away in the
firest [M. this must be my typo] of suffering before it is ended.  And when the
culmination is reached, the ruling power of sin will have been broken, and
every nation and organization now in the world, will have been overthrown
and destroyed from their present form.  Out of this mass of ruins the Lord will
call his people.  They will go forth, and he will establish them in his chosen
center.  That congregating center will be within the boundaries of the present
state of Kansas.  Thence that people will extend their dominion over North
America, and ultimately over the whole earth.
   In the separation between the righteous and the wicked, the latter will be
thrown to the outskirts, and in a subjugated condition, and will thus remain
until the end of the millenium.  Soon after which they will be destroyed from
the earth.
    In the early centuries following this season of trouble, important climatic
changes will occur in Kansas and the adjacent regions which are drained by
the world’s great river, cyclones, blizzards and hot winds will gradually cease
from the land. Drouths [as typed] will be superseded by sufficient rainfall to
bring forth the products of the earth abundantly in the region occupied by the
Saints. Peace and longevity will greatly increase. In the latter half of the
millenium and in the community of the Saints, will be brought to pass the
sayings of prophesy [as typed]: "They shall. build houses and inhabit them." 
"They shall plant vineyards and shall eat the fruit of them."  "The earth shall
yield her increase."  "They shall learn war no more."  "There shall be none to
hurt nor harm in all my Holy Mountain."  That mountain will be composed of
the Church Militant then remaining in fleshly bodies.     The Lord’s church
record is not kept with paper and ink, but in the Lamb’s book of life, being
made up without regard to church organizations as they exist here. The Lord
knoweth them that are his, and each member of his church will then bear the
seal of God in the forehead, and will be known of all who know that seal. G.
W. Day.  +
