Editor of Medford Patriot: -
Before leaving home our
many friends requested us to write
them and now as we journey and visit
friends and relatives, we find our time
so taken up that we write to ask enough
of the valuable space of your paper to
print the following letter that all may
read and know of our trip thus far.
We left Medford on the Santa Fe
Thurs.' Oct. 13, 1910, and at Harper,
Kan., met our sister Mrs. Wm. Abbott
and were joined by Mr. and Mrs. fcech-
telheimer and daughter who staid in
the party until we arrived in Central
At Hutchinson, Kas.,we were met at
the depot by about twenty of our old
friends. It being prayer-meeting right
and having fifty minutes to wait we
surprised Rev. Chambers, who was not
aware of our arrival.
Our next stop waa at Pueblo, Colo.,
where in 1890 we made our home for
nearly a year. The city looked natural
to us but we staid only a short time and
traveled on to Salt Lake City.
We arrived in Salt Lake City at 2
p. m. Saturday and lost no time in
starting out to see the sights.
On Sunday we attended services in
the Mormon Tabernacle where we saw
and heard the next largest pipe organ
in the U. S.
We enjoyed the ride of two hours
planned for tourists, on which most of
the principal places of interest are
AtOgden, Utah, we stopped three
hours, took dinner and saw as much of
the plaoe as time allowed.
Our next stop of importance was at
Portland. Oregon where we spent three
days. It was in Oregon that we first
noticed the change in climate, the
green grass, the growing vegetables
and the beautiful roses. On this coast
Portland is called the "The City of
We were interested in the big draw
bridges, the coming and going of river
and ocean steamers and also in the
Foresty building which is built of huge
logs and in which is exhibited samples
of all wood grown in Oregon.
Renewing our journey we traveled
on to Central Point, Oregon, here we
visited our sister and family for three
Mrs. Bechtelheiraer stood the trip
much better than we anticipated and
really enjoyed herself.
We visited the widely advertised
orchards of the Rogue river valley for
which the owners ask from $600 to $1900
per acre. We will add we did not care
to buy many acres of the latter. We
took a side trip of 12 miles to Ashland
Oregon, here we met Art Thacker for-
merly a barber of Medford. He look-
ed unchanged and is following his old
occupation. We did not get him to say
he would like to go back to Oklahoma.
At Central Point we resumed our
journey unaccompanied. We left the
railroad at Roseburg, Oregon and began
a ne'er to be forgotten stage ride of 60
miles to Myrtle Point, Oregon. It was our
first tide in the rain and although our
driver handled his four horses with per
feet ease, we Oklahomaus thought we
much preferred riding behind two
horses on the level roads in Oklahoma
to riding behind four horses over the
steep mountain roads in Oregon
Never-the- less we arrived on Coos
Bay safe and sound and are glad of our
experience. Now what shall we say of
this mode of travel in this land of
green verdure? No railroads, very
few wagon roads but a broad expanse
Of blue water. Not the ocean but
Coos Bay. Coos river and many inlets
to afford a means of transportation.
The farmers and merchants use gas-
oline launches as we use our wagons
Our thoughts of our initiation into
this mode of travel were far from
pleasant but our experience was the
opposite to our thoughts and one day
we took a trip of about 30 miles up
Coos river and enjoyed it immensely.
We can uow sit on the decks of
these boats without fear.
This is a rough country, the hills are
covered with timber and many of them
underlaid with coal, while the lands
along the rivers and inlets are
farmed, dairying being carried on ex-
We visited the C. A. Smith lumber
mill which is the second largest in the
world. Their average run is to saw
250.000 feet of lumber in 10 hours.
Operating on the Bay now are live
saw-mills, one milk condeusary, two
creameries, two,ice-plants, one large
box factory, one sash and door factory
one broorn handle factory, two found-!
eries and machine shops.
All commerce with the outside world
is done by means of steamers, but
with the advent of a railroad which is
hoped for and expected soon, this will
be changed. ,
North Bend and Marshfield are the
two prinoipal cities on Coos Bay with
a population of at least 6,000 and are
about three miles apart They are
connected with a plank roadway and
automobiles are not a rarity.
School facilities here are of the best.
We expect to leave here for San
Francisco, Cal. on the steamer M. F
Plant, the latter part of this week.
We expect to spend Christmas in our
Oklahoma home but will write you
another letter before our arrival in
Medford if we get a chance.
Hoping to see you all soon we
Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Gilliland.
"I had been troubled with constipa-
tion for two years and tried all of the
best physicians in Bristol, Tenn., and
they could do nothing for me," writes
Thos. E. Williams, Middleboro, Ky.
"Two packages of Chamberlain's Stom-
ach and Liver Tablets cured me." For
sale by all dealers.
Anson Lindbeck was up from
Medford over Sunday on his
motorcycle' The thing refused
togo when he started back Mon-
day morning and it was finally
ueccessary to call in the motor-
cycle expert, Ben Schmoker.
These newspaper plutocrats who
own automobiles, autocycles or
airships must expect trouble
The Rational Treatment For
The day of the use of salves and
greasy lotions in the treatment of eczema
and other skin and scalp diseases is
done. Time has proved them not only
practically useless in effecting perma-
nent cures, but also unclean and in
reality, breeding places for disease
germs. The T. L. Neal's Drug Store
is pleased to announce itself agent for
Zemo—the modern, clean, simple and
infallible treatment for eczema, pimples
blackheads, dandruff and all itching
diseases of the skin and scalp.
So confident are we of its efficacy
that we say to you—use Zemo accord-
ing to directions—then if not satis-
factory,-come and get your money back.
Ask for booklet telling how to cure
yourself at home with Zemo.
