Other coal  locale  Isthmus  Allied OC&N   MPE (a-a) Oct 4, 1901
Coos Bay News.  The Curson Coal & Navigation Company have purchased
the Wall coal property on Isthmus slough, and active work in the development
of the mine will be commenced immediately.  Messrs. Curson and Maxwell
are heavy stockholders in the company and have a good market for the output
of the mine.  We are assured that the sinking of the shaft at Coos City will not
be delayed on account of the purchase of the Wall property, but that work will
be pushed as rapidly as possible.  On the land just purchased two veins of coal
have already been opened, which will aid the company considerably in the
rapid development of the mine, and it is reasonable to assume that shipments
will be made in the not far distant future.  Messrs. Maxwell & Curson have
had much previous experience in coal mining in which they have been very
successful, and there is no reason to doubt that their investment here will
prove profitable to them and to this section of the country generally.  +

o Coos Bay News.  The slope is now down over 1200 feet at the Beaver Hill
mine, with conditions favorable to extending it considerably farther.  The coal
is harder and superior in every way to any coal ever mined in Oregon
heretofore, and the roof and floor are reasonably good.  This will be one of the
largest mines on the Pacific coast when fully developed, and will demonstrate
to the satisfaction of all, that great fields of coal can be worked extensively
and profitably in Coos county, when capable and economical management are
exercised.  +

Misc-tale  animal  locale  wilderness  MPE (a-b) Oct 18, 1901
Mrs Gibbs, an old lady who lives near Eckley, had an experience this week
which no doubt she will not soon forget. She started for her home Monday on
horseback over a trail to what is known as the Jack Sears ranch.  She had got
some distance along the trail when she became lost, wandering aimlessly
about until night.  Not finding her way out at nightfall she dismounted from
her horse and put in the night alone in the mountains without even a fire to
protect her from the cold. When morning arrived she was unable to find her
horse and started out a foot still not knowing in which direction she was
going.  L. W. Deyoe of this place and Seldon Warner who were out hunting
met her on the trail and to them she told her story and informed them where
she thought the horse could be found.  They returned to the place and found
the horse a short distance from where Mrs. Gibbs had spent the night.  Mrs.
Gibbs is about 74 years of age and was nearly exhausted when found. +
