o Andy Hartman came near being killed last Wednesday on a trestle between
Marshfield and Coquille by being caught by the passenger train.  It was a very
foggy morning, and Mr. Hartman could not see the train until it was almost
upon him.  He ran for a standing platform arranged along side the trestles, and
barely had time to stoop down when the passenger rolled above him.  The
engineer saw him and thinking he was not low enough, stopped the train and
signaled the conductor, both of whom rushed through the train and back over
the trestle looking for the man, but as he could not at first be seen it was
feared he had been knocked off into the water below, but presently he was
found lying quite close to the rail in an almost unconscious state.  The train
was backed up km and the unfortunate man placed on board and taken to
Coquille.  Every attention was given him by the train crew, and we have since
learned that other than a severe cut on top of the head, Andy is all right.   +

Tot-name  Endicott  invention  transport  MPE 7 May 18, 1900
o W W Endicott, of this place, has invented and applied for a patent on an
ingenious device for taking up the shrinkage in wagon wheels.  It consists of a
bolt and nut and plate.  It can be put into any wheel by cutting out about three
inches of the rim, making a square hole in one end of the rim, into which the
square end of the bolt is inserted, the end of the bolt bearing on the plate on
the other end of the rim.  By turning the nut the rim is expanded or contracted
as desired.  A top plate makes a face for the tire to rest on and also forms a
lock for the nut.  This is enclosed in a sheet iron case which protects it from
mud, etc.  The case can be removed and the nut loosened so that the tire can
be removed and put back and made perfectly tight in a few minutes.  It is
believed by all mechanics who have seen the invention that Mr. Endicott has a
bonanza.  +

AHB politic  character MPE8  May 25,1900.
In the nomination of A. H. Black, the enterprising merchant and creamery
man, Myrtle Point, for representative of Coos county, the republicans made a
most wise selection.  Mr. Black is a man of great executive ability, a thorough
business man, enthusiastic in the progress and advancement of this county,
and a man thoroughly awake to the best interests of our state and nation.  His
character is without blemish and not a more worthy, conscientious and able
representative could be desired by any county.  He should be elected, and will
no doubt, by an overwhelming majority. --Roseburg Plaindealer.   +
