Dr. Roberds Sunday morning took a swallow of poison by mistake, which
came near costing him his life.  He had just returned from church, very much
fatigued, and went into his office to take some port wine as a stimulant, but in
some manner got hold of the wrong bottle and before he noticed it swallowed
an ounce of acinite [sic], enough to kill forty men.  He saw his mistake
immediately and Dr. Leep was summoned and with a stomach pump removed
the poison.  It was a close call for Dr. Roberds, and had it not been for the
timely assistance and skill of Dr. Leep the dose would have soon proven fatal.

new mine.  The work will be commenced as soon as the engine, to be used in
connection therewith, is in position.  The old Beaver Hill mine, which is also
the property of the company, will be reopened,  as, under capable
management, considerable coal can pet [print] be taken out.  The resumption
of work at Beaver Hill will materially benefit the business interests of this
section.  The opening of the new mine under the
management of W. S. Chandler, who thoroughly understands the work, and
has gained an enviable reputation during many years of mining experience,
ensures the success of the enterprise.  The opening of the mine also refutes the
statements circulated that the Messrs. Spreckels intended to withdraw from
this section and that they would make no further investments, etc. --Coos Bay

Lhc   Tot-MP boomer  misc-word environments   MPE 12 June 29, 1900 
One of Coos County's finest towns is Myrtle Point.  It nestles on the bank of
the Coquille River, in the center of the most productive, T prosperous and
beautiful portion of the Coquille valley. It is a distributing point and always
will be for the North, South, East, and Middle Forks of the Coquille river and
the Johnson creek and Sixes mining districts, which embraces a vast era [sic]
of country.  While most towns are entirely dependent on some manufacturing
or other like institution, Myrtle Point continually advances and upbuilds as a
result of its natural advantages and resources, which are the very best backing
a town can have.  Thus favored by geographical location, it is only a question
of a little time, when the chief manufacturing institutions of the county will
also center at this place.  The town already can boast of the most substantial
and modern business houses, churches and school buildings in the county,
while it [sic] residences and homes are well appointed and well kept.
    Our people are progressive and hospitable; in fact Myrtle Point is an
ideal town and its people ought to be, and doubtless are, well satisfied with
their environments.  Our future is secure.   +

the people are assured that no short-change sharks are travelling with them. 
They have 65 people in their employ, including Prof. Hunt, who has charge of
the finest troupe of performing dogs in the world.
     In speaking of Prof. Hunt, the San Francisco Examiner of recent date says:
"Prof. Hunt's troupe of trained dogs at the Orpheum Theater this week are
without doubt the best trained dogs that have ever been seen here.  We think
wonders when we see a man walk a rope.  But this is the first time the people
of San Francisco have ever seen a dog walk a rope.  We must give Prof.  Hunt
much credit as a dog trainer, for the little pets go at their work as if it were
play for them, not like lots of dog acts that have been seen here, where they
were made to do what little they could with a whip.  To see Prof. Hunt's dogs
act is like your [print] seeing children play, and the little fellows do more and
harder tricks than any trained dogs that have visited the amusement-going
public of this city." Two performances daily.  Don't fail to see the grand free
outside exhibition.  +
