         A Poor Man’s Wealth.  [head; centered.]
                    ______
A poor man!  Yes, I must confess;
No pasture fine, with grazing kine,
Nor fields of waving grass, are mine;
No foot of fat or fallow land
Where rightfully my feet may stand,
The while I claim it as my own --
By deed and title mine alone;
[space]
Ah, poor indeed, perhaps you say --
But spare me your compassion, pray!
When I can't ride, with you, I walk
In Nature's company, and talk
With one who will not slight or slur
The child forever dear to her --
And one who answers back, be sure,
With smile for smile, though I am poor.
[space]
And while communing thus, I count
An inner wealth of large amount --
The wealth of honest purpose blent
With Penury's environment --
The wealth of owning naught today
But debts that I would gladly pay,
And wealth of thanks still unexpressed,
With emulative interest.
[space]
A wealth of patience and content --
For all my ways improvident;
A faith still fondly-exercised
For all my plans unrealized;
A wealth of progresses that still,
Howe'er I fall, I hope to fill;
A wealth of charity for those
Who pity me my ragged clothes.
[space]
A poor man!  Yes, I must confess
No wealth of gold do I possess;
No pastures fine, with grazing kine,
Nor fields of waving grain are mine --
But ah, my friend, I've wealth no end!
And millionnirs [sic] might condescend
To bend the knee and envy me
This opulence of poverty.

                               COOS BAY COAL TRANSFERS.--
                                       The Railroad.
     A very important change has just taken place in the ownership and management of the coal mines on the bay.  Last week it was announced that Holt & Hawley had purchased Judge Mann's interest in the Newport mine, and Mr. Flanagan went to the city with the view of arranging matters with the newcomers in the business.  Since the arrival of the Arcata last Saturday, Mr. Phillips superintendent of the Eastport mine, received instructions from I. L Pool, the owner of the mine, to deliver the property to Capt. Holt, and put in an appearance at headquarters as soon as convenient.  It appears that after arriving at San Francisco, Mr. Flanagan and the purchasers of Judge Mann's interest had no difficulty in coming to an understanding as to the future proceedings, and immediately put their heads together with a view to control Coos bay coal in the San Francisco market, so as to keep the price of coal at a living figure.  With this view they purchased the Eastport and leased the Southport for three years, with the privilege of purchasing at a stated figure.  This will give them the control they anticipate for the present at least.  Other mines, it is true, have been opened on the high ridge extending from Newport in the direction of the Coquille, and all that portion in the ridge or belt of coal, which must naturally find its way to market through the Newport Slough lands, owned by Flanagan & Co., is now in the control of these parties.  It is the intention of the new firm to do business on a large scale, to ship in large quantities and sell as low as possible and ship only the best quality.  This place is much the nearest to San Francisco of any coal field on the coast, the coal (to say the least of it) is equal to any in the market, and many disinterested parties, who ought to know, say it is a superior article.  In this particular, however, it speaks for itself from the fact that it always has sold from 50 cts to $1.50 per ton more than other coals in San Francisco, whenever the petty opposition between the mines of the bay did not interfere.  The difficulty, heretofore, rested wholly in the shipping facilities; parties in San Fracisco [sic] who preferred it could not depend on being able to get what they needed at convenient times and arranged the furnaces of their machinery to burn other coal, and the sale of the coal depended on the demand for it for domestic purposes.  When the road not [sic?; =now ] being built to the Newport mine is completed, two large steamers will make regular trips between this place and San Francisco, besides several sailing vessels, the new firm owning controlling interests in some eight or ten, the mines will be kept steadily busy and business, generally on the bay will be greatly benefitted.
                                               RAILROAD MATTERS
     While it is true that this change in the coal properties came unexpectedly to Capt. Besse & company, it can in no way interfere with their original plans, as the purchase of the mines was a first suggested when Capt. Besse visited the bay, and had to be considered by his eastern friends who are associated with him.  Had the Captain been able to return to San Francisco by July 1st, as he anticipated, he could now be the owner of those properties, and it is unfortunate for him that he was compelled to remain so long in arranging matters.  However, the proposed railroad would tap this same belt of coal south of the present company's land, and Capt. Besse's plans for developing the timber resources of the county and affording an outlet with the road to the fertile valleys of Southern Oregon have not as yet been interfered with, and the captain is expected on the bay next week to give the matter his personal attention.  One strange feature of the affair is the fact that two more gentlemen (Messrs Foster and Dow) [parentheses, sic] who are interested in the enterprise, have come for the sole purpose of ascertaining if there is timber in Coos county, on account of the representation of parties interested on the bay that there were no timber lands in the county.  There is nothing strange in their coming to investigate, more than that we should suppose the reports of those who already have been here would be sufficient, but it is decidedly strange that parties who should be respectable, and owning property in the county, would be so narrow minded as to deem it necessary for their own business success to so grossly misrepresent this section, and attempt by falsifying to interfere with the development of the vast resources of this locality.   --News.  +

Pr 1c CCH September 11, 1883 
                                                Good Times Coming.
     There never has been a time in the history of the past, that there existed such flattering prospects of future prosperity for the people of the Coquille country as exists now.  Capital seems to be shaping itself for investment here and every part begins to acknowledge our great natural wealth and facilities for getting it to a good market.
     That ever wide-awake paper, the Portland Standard [Standard, in italics], is giving our part an extended notice, showing Portland capitalists where they are missing a great thing, by allowing Coos county's wealth to be carried off by the people of California.  The paper speaks whereof it knows, as its editor gave this part a personal inspection once.
     Capital from many parts seem [sic] to be directed this way, and will find paying investment in our timber and coal.  We have waited long and patiently for it, and are soon to meet our reward.  The most important object to every human being on this river and country adjacent to it, is the begun improvement [sic] on the Coquille bar.  It is paramount to every other question that concerns our people.  The proposed railroad, of course, would be a great acquisition to our blooming or rather budding prosperity; but even this would not compare with a good entrance at the mouth of our river in point of importance to us.  We must use every possible effort to secure another appropriation for our bus. [sic] the next session of congress.  There is hardly a person on the river who does not wish to see prosperity here, and there is no way of securing as surely, as by an appropriation for our bar.  If we all work together, and work faithfully, we can get the appropriation easily.  We can now see the result of last year's appropriation and must acknowledge that it has been a power of good to the people of our entire county.  Times have been much better since the improved condition of our bar, but has been little in comparison to what it would have been had we been prepared to utilize it as we should, had we known what the result was going to be.  The vessels that have went out empty [sic] would have been found cargoes had it been known a year ago that vessels could come in and go out at will this season.  We are fully assured of the erection of three mills on the river just as soon as they can be constructed, if an appropriation is secured.  The parties have great faith in the bar improvement, and are willing to invest their money before the expenditure of another appropriation, only they want to be sure it is forthcoming.  The present condition of the bar is good, but everybody who knows something about such things says that, without extending the present seawall further out, the heavy, southwest, winter winds will cause it to fill up to some extent.  This conforms to the engineers reports [sic].  We must not stop with what has been done, but keep working till it has become good for any part of the season.
     The railroad is now an acknowledged certainty, and the time of active operations will be settled at a meeting soon to be held at Portland.  The road, according to latest advices, will not terminate at Roseburg as some people have expected.  The following San Francisco telegram 
[M. note:  small t on telegram], of Aug. 31st, may be of interest:
      Capt. W. H. Besse, of New Bedford, Massachusetts, prominently connected with the Southern Oregon Improvements, arrived from the East yesterday.  He stated that important developments are contemplated by his company in carrying out the general plan already noticed.  The construction of a railroad from Coos bay to Roseburg would be merely prefatory [sic] to its extension to Boise City, Idaho, though no definite plan has yet been decided upon.  The company had already acquired valuable properties of Oregon, and is negotiating for others.  These include coal and timber lands, which are to be developed and the product shipped to this city.  Personally he has great faith in the future of Oregon as the center of a flourishing commerce, and believes that the southern portion of the state offers important advantages.   Preliminary surveys of the railroad, made some time ago, will be followed by a final survey, but these and other matters remain to be passed upon by the directors at a meeting to be held in Portland, at which the statement is to be submitted that the steam vessels contracted for recently will be ready for delivery next spring.  They are of wood, and especially constructed for the wants of the company, being light draft, having compound Scott engines, being fitted up for passengers, and having appliances for speedily loading coal and lumber.  Captain Besse sails for Portland Sunday.  +

     By a private note from School Superintendent Camp, we are informed he has decided to hold a teacher's institute in this place the 25th and 26th of this month.  Mr. Camp has foreseen and obviated some of the greatest difficulties in the way of general attendance of the teachers, [sic]  upon the institute.  He has so arranged that teachers wishing to attend will have only half fare to pay on the steamers on Coos bay and on the Coquille river, also.  The hotels in this place have determined that the steamboat owners shall not outdo them in this matter and will be equally generous, charging only half rates for board and lodging, [sic] for teachers during the continuance of the institute.  September 27, [sic] is set apart as the time for public examination of teachers.  We hope the friends of education will take an interest in this matter, as it is paramount importance to all others in regard to the young.  Let parents who have scholars take hold and assist in making the institute a success;  their presence and countenance will encourage the superintendent and teachers.  And if those interested most in schools come out and look into the methods of training the young, they may be instrumental in raising the standard of excellence.  A full attendance of teachers, and from all parts of the county is earnestly desired.  It is a good plan and often a great help to teachers to attend these institutes, for there, they often obtain ideas and acquire a knowledge of different methods of teaching better than they use.  We think we can hardly be too importunate in this matter.  Let the teachers all attend, and be sure you will meet a cordial welcome to our city.  +

                                                       ____
      I notice a remarkable essay in your paper of the 28th ult., signed, John Barleycorn.  As we all have a right to give our opinion on the merits and demerits [sic] of such essays that court public attention, with reference to the essay above mentioned, that it is a combination of irony and exaggeration.  It has not the least particle of philosophy to sustain it.  It should be classed among writings that are venomous and pragmatical ]sic].  Evidently, the writer has an object in view, but, whatever that object is, he has arrived at a lame and impotent conclusion.  There may be rascals of the lowest order who are about to establish themselves in the liquor business in Coquille City, yet it is not flattering to the intelligence of the average Coquille citizen that he and his wife and sister can be led astray, demoralized and utterly ruined by the said rascals.  If the law is above the citizen and according to the law, he may legally engage in the liquor traffic, it [sh]ows that no other citizen has a legal right to interfere with him or obstruct his business.  John Stuart Mill, when speaking from the hustings [sic], was questioned by someone connected with the temperance movement, and requested to state whether he would sell whiskey to a drunken man or not?  It was a curious question to put to a refined scholar, but his answer is worthy of the attention of “John Barleycorn.”  He said, “I violate no private priviledges [sic].”
     That sentence is a sermon sufficient for all upright citizens. There are legitimate methods by which the traffic of liquor may be impeded, but the “John Barleycorn” method is not one of them.  Nothing is gained by such pictures of horrible imbecility.  It indicates nothing more remarkable than that the writer is a man of brains, and surrounded by a community of idiots.  No people are more alive to their own interest than this too utterly good sort.
     Bequeath to them a saloon complete in all its apurtenances [sic], and if they would not carry on the business, they would realize what it would bring in filthy lucre.  The world is turning with loud mouthed apostles and blatant, liberty loving patriots, yet, when many of them are brought to the test, like John Mitchell, the celebrated Irish patriot, they are willing to invest in the slavery of others.  That was his case in Virginia.  To conclude, in civilized and kindly feeling I would advise friend “Barleycorn” whilst fighting the Devil, not to assume his character, and to draw it mild [sic].

     Mr. Editor: -- At your request I send you the following report of the Halls [sic] Prairie school.  We closed Saturday, with a review of the year’s work, and in justice to the pupils I will say that in an experience of ten years as a teacher, I have never been so well satisfied with the progress and general behavior of any school as with this.  Be sure that I shall ever hold the pupils of Hall’s Prairie school in grateful remembrance.  Quite a number of visitors were with me at closing.
      The following recd. 100 per cent for attendance:  Willis and Walter Schroeder, Lucy and Minnie McClosky [sic], Millie Bullard, Clara, Ella and Alice Schroeder, Ida Kronenberg, Alsie [sic] Thelin, Emma Celemens [sic; = Clemens?], Etta and Louisa Danielson.  Those receiving 95 per cent and over, George, Frank and Albert Schroeder, Alonzo Thelin, Perry Robinson, Oscar Ohman, Flora McClosky [sic],  Rachel Kronenberg, Jennie Thelin, Maggie Ohman and Mariah [sic] Aasen.
     The dance in the evening given by the pupils was one of the most agreeable I have attended for a long time.  The large hall was filled with as merry a crowd of dancers, old folk and young, as ever tripped the “light fantastic.”
     A fine, bountiful lunch was disposed of at midnight.
     Prof. Williamson’s burlesque on the Dutchman hunting his lost wife at the centennial was -- well, I needn’t tell you how it was.
     Another very pleasant feature was the song --  “Look me in the eye Johnnie,” by Mrs. Autson [sic].  It was nicely executed.
      Dancing was kept up till morning, and everybody went home feeling they had had a good time.

     The children of Halls [sic] Prairie school, at the commencement of their school last spring, gave their teacher specimens of the handwriting, and at the close of the school they gave him other specimens, showing the improvement they had made.  These have been handed us.
     Willie Schroeder deserves great praise for the progress made.  His writing is not equaled [sic] by one-third of the teachers.  Miss Emma Chlemens [sic] is one of the finest writers in the county.  She made very great progress.  Ella Schroeder’s is superior and we must class her’s [sic] among the best.  Lucinda McClosky made great progress and her writing shows much care.  Hillis Bullard has made great advancement and is a fine writer, and we should judge, a rapid one.  Lou Robison [sic] is a pretty fair writer and has made good improvement.  Rachel Kronenberg is one of the best writers in the county, uses much care and has a steady hand.  Ida Kronenberg is a good writer and improved rapidly.  Clara Schroeder is an exceptionally fine writer and seems to improve with each line.  Jennie Thelin is a good little writer, and uses the greatest care.  She will be one of the neatest writers to be found, after of [sic] little practice.  Many of these scholars we are not acquainted with, and have mentioned nothing of their ages, which, with their fine writing is, of itself, commendable in many instances.  +

     We have lately been interrogated in regard to the affects of this climate on weak lungs.  The question is one we do not feel qualified to answer, but have made some inquiries and have got into possession of facts that are very favorable to the disease, and surprising to us, as the climate is acknowledged to be a damp or moist one, and really is one half of the year, which we thought was unfavorable to lung and throat diseases.  Of the four cases that we have consulted, the parties acknowledge that they have been greatly benefited by coming here, and two of them who were pronounced cases of fatal consumption, are as well as anyone, to-day, so far as any disease is concerned.  The climate may be bad for some lung diseases, but we do not profess to judge of such things, and will give the experience of others for the benefit of inquirers.  +

Williamson, was one of the grandest treats we ever enjoyed.  The Professor’s temperance lecture was worth double the admittance fee, being replete with sound advice to the young.  His performances throughout are not of the character one often sees in this country, being more elevated and uplifting.  It is often the case that performers try to make their entertainments interesting by spicing them with obsenity and profanity.  This wins a certain class, but a major part of the people here get disgusted with it.  It is useless to say that this is not the character of Prof. Williamson’s entertainments, as he is a gentleman of culture and refinement.  As a performer of tricks at legerdemain, he is good; as a moral lecturer he is first class, and as a ventriloquest [sic] he is, in the language of the Oregonian, “way up.”  +

                                                        ______
     We have the prospectus of a grand history of Southern Oregon –Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Curry and Coos counties – which A. G. Walling , assisted by Mr. H. O. Lang, a writer of acknowledged ability, is getting up.  They have selected Mr. Orvil Dodge, of Myrtle Point, as solicitor of orders for the work and data from this part and Curry county, too, for it.  Mr. Dodge is an old settler here and is well posted on the history of this coast country.
     It is often the case that the date for such works are incorrect, but we can rely on Mr. D. to furnish the facts – true in every way – that when put in book form needs be of great interest to every citizen of Southern Oregon.  D. soon goes to Curry to interview Capt. Tichenor and other prominent pioneers. [ +]

     There seems to prevail among people who anticipate coming here that there can be no market for what one could raise.  This is as far from the facts as it is possible to be.  A very small per cent of our people are actively engaged in producing edibles, the majority being engaged in milling, logging, stock raising, etc.  Very few of those engaged in farming, follow that exclusively and produce more their own requirements, is also small.  The land being very hard to clear, and very little of the rich bottom land in cultivation, while other ranches of industry offer rich rewards, the people depend largely on getting their supplies from San Francisco.  It is not that the different articles of produce do not grow well here, for they are much superior.  There is no part of the country where potatoes, cabbages, cauliflowers, onions etc. grow better than they do in this river, yet tons and tons of them are brought here annually from San Francisco; bread stuff, wheat and butter is [sic] is also brought here in large quantities.  +

     It is too bad that our people – some farmers – have to buy cabbages from California.  It was only last week that we got a cabbage head from a cluster of five, that weighted 9 pounds.  They were from an old last year’s stalk that had been thrown in a corner of the fence when the ground was plowed, and had there grown, without cultivating, 25 or 30 pounds of as fine cabbage as anyone could wish to see.   Two or three of the heads were eaten about the time most cabbage was being planted, and at that time would have weighed several pounds each.  It had not been two weeks since California cabbage was brought to this town to sell.  Leave your old cabbage stocks in the ground all winter, rather than do without or send off for them.  +

This company employs more than 100 men, we are told.  +

     Capt. Goodrich, of Fall River City, Cal., called on us last week.  He has some friends where he came from who wish to engage in hop culture here, if they can be successfully grown. We have given several articles on the growth of hops here, but were never as fully prepared as now to say that this could be made profitable on this river.  Oregon hops are considered the best on the coast, and we have seen no place in the state or elsewhere that grow as well as they do here on the bottom land.  The latest inducement is the favorable aspect of shipping.  The land is peculiarly adapted to hops, being sandy and rich, which is occasionally renewed by an overflow.  Vessels direct from San Francisco can land right at your yard, so that you need not even employ a team to haul them to the landing.  We have a sample of hops on Mr. Mehl’s premises.  +

     (The following beautiful poem, from a clipping from the Arkansas Advocate published in 1835, was handed us by Uncle Hugh Duffy: )
There is a change, an utter change,
  That comes upon the heart,
Ere time one feature can derange
  Or bid one smile depart:
The outward form is all the same;
  Nor are, by words expressed
The dark and boding thoughts that tame
  The fires wethin [sic; = within] the breast.
[space]
Undimm’d – Unaltered – still the eye
  Beams forth on all around ;
And if the bosom heaves a sigh,
  That sigh has scarce a sound.
Yet though the world may never dream
  Our spirits touched by care,
So buoyant and so free they seem –
  We are not what we were!
[space]
O-er us – we scarce know whence or when
  That change begins to steal,
Which teaches that we ne’er again,
  As once we felt, shall feel.
A curtain, slowly drawn aside,
  Reveals a shadowed scene,
Wherein the futue [sic; = future] differs wide
  From what the past has been.
[space]
‘Tis not earth withholds its joys,
  As manhood crowns the brow;
The same pursuits we loved as boys,
  Life offers to us now:
And still we seek the giddy round,
  And join the laughers there,
But feel that in the festive round
  Our hearts have now no share.
[space]
Yet mourn we not this early change –
  ‘Tis sent our souls to show
How narrow is the utmost range
  Allow’d them here below: -- [sic]
‘Tis sent to bid our youth aspire
   From scenes so soon oe’rcast,
To them whose plersure [sic] ne’er can tire,
  And shall forever last.  +

                                       Our Great Timber Wealth.
                                                  ______
     We have often made the assertion that Coos is one of the richest counties in this country and the following from the Daily Standard [Daily Standard in italics] verifies the assertion:
     Down in Coos county there are special inducements held out to capital, that must soon find the way there.  There are millions and millions of acres of the finest timber that the sun ever shone on, embracing the following varieties: Cedar, fir, spruce, hemlock, myrtle, ash, alder, and maple.  Of the cedar there are three kinds, the white  yellow  The white, or Port Orford cedar, as it is more familiarly known, is the finest timber known for finishing, black walnut not excepted.  There are extensive bodies of this timber close and accessible to the Coquille river.  The red and yellow cedar is also found in large bodies. The fir has also three varieties, red  white  and yellow.  The quality of these is the best of the kind found on the coast, and as to the quantity it would be like estimating that of the water in the Pacific Ocean.  One not used to the woods here would be astonished at the amount of timber there is on the ground.  A camp turning out from 2,000,000 to 8,000,000 feet annually, can find good logging for several years on a section of land.  There are forties [sic] that are estimated to have at least 15,000,000 feet of fine timber on them.  This may look unreasonable, but when you find the trees standing so closely together that you can hardly pass between them, and the trees from four to eight feet in diameter, and from 100 to 200 feet to the first limb, you can begin to realize the amount of timber that is to be found in that part.
                                       THE COQUILLE RIVER
Runs through the center of this fine timber region for forty-five miles, then forks, making the north, middle, east and south forks, and those, suitable streams for logging, respectively, 40, 35, 25 and 60 miles, besides numerous creeks coming in on all sides.  The river   low the forks is also tapped by dozens of creeks and sloughs, which are suitable streams for logging on.  The river bottoms are solidly covered with myrtle, maple, ash and alder, the two former kinds being the most plentiful and the finest for cabinet work.  Portland, and many other parts of this Northwest, stands in need of this valuable timber, and it would have some of it, too, if her capitalists, or even men of moderate means, knew of the extent of the timber on the Coquille, in Coos county, and the practicability of getting it out.
     For years the timber was considered worthless, but that was from the fact that the bar at the mouth of this river was bad, which prevented vessels from coming.  Since the expenditure of the last congressional appropriation, last spring, the bar has been getting better continually until now a vessel can sail in without the aid of a tug.
     Any one who knows anything about manufacturing lumber can see the enormous profits that can be made in making lumber of this timber and shipping it.  The price of white cedar there in the log is from $10 to $19 per thousand, and when in lumber in San Francisco is worth from $55 to $60 per thousand.  The freight and towage is $10 per thousand (this must be reduced owing to the improved condition of the bar), leaving $38 to pay for sawing.  A mill can be built that can with a crew of eight men, saw 10,000 feet of lumber per day.  Say the hands are paid $2 [sic] per day all round, which amounts to $16, and say $30 for oil and incidental expenses, which is a high estimate, the logs for a day’s run $120 and the freight at $100 we have, at $50 per thousand, a clear daily profit of $250.  Of course this estimate is made without expenses of delays, breakage, etc. , but a mill properly managed need not suffer much from these hindrances. 
     The question is not when people will see this great inducement and take hold of it but who will do it.  Coos county and much of the surrounding country has as virtually belonged to California as any county in that state, except in a judicial sense.  It is high time that this part of Oregon should, in truth and reality, be part of our own state.  Millions of dollars worth of Oregon property from Coos county finds its way to coffers of San Francisco capitalists, without benefiting a single Oregonian one cent.  We are partial towards Oregonians, and would not say a word if it were all hard work and small profits, but when it comes to citizens of other states coming here and picking up, as it were, our wealth and carrying it off, when our people could utilize it, we do emphatically protest.  [+ text]

                             Some of its Resources and Citizens.
                                            ___________
     Opposite Johnson’s.  Russel [sic] Dement has built a residence and opened out a ranch so that he can have the advantages of school and neighbors which are denied him at his place in the mountains.  Below him is G. W. Majory’s place.  He has a splendid little farm, a good house and a fine orchard.  He is an excellent carpenter, and builds many of the fine residences on the river.  Opposite his place, and just below that of S. Johnson we find Capt. W. H. Harris, who has one of the snuggest farms on the river or in the county for that matter.  He has a great amount of land yet to cultivate, a good house, and an orchard the equal of which can seldom be seen in any part.  He has a fine lot of stock about and lives in ease and comfort.  Below him we find T. M. Hermann, one of the county’s good citizens.  He has a large farm and raises good stock; takes an interest in the country and sees that the roads are kept in good shape in his part. Nearby we find W. P. Hermann and Ernest Hermann, both extensively engaged in farming and stock raising.  They cultivate the old Hermann homestead and annually produce thousands of bushels of grain.  These two gentlemen are industrious and will soon be large property owners.  Cass, another brother, lives on a fine, large prairie on Roland creek.  He has one of the finest stock ranches in this part of the county and has it well stocked.  He is a good fellow and is doing well.  Uncle William Rhody lives in Big bottom below Hermann Bros., has a good piece of land; raises fine peaches for passing urchins to get away with, and lives a quiet, peaceable life.  Johnny Mast owns a good ranch on the west side of the river, but lives on a ranch at Roland prairie.  Next we find Uncle M. Whittington, who has one of the best improved places in the county.  He is a great worker, and thoroughly cultivates, which amply rewards his efforts.  He raises considerable stock – mostly hogs.  Below him we find H. Schroeder, Sr., who came to the county at a very early day.  He is a fine old gentleman and has a magnificent place and lives at his ease.  He is a first-class musician and has a grand piano which he brought from Baltimore when he came here.  Charles Schroeder lives near by [sic] and is truly a son of his father.  He is a jolly good fellow, a member of our excellent brass band and is logging and farming alternately.  Across the river here we find Mr. Volkmar and Warner Bros. The former is a good farmer, and a tinner by trade.  He came to this river at an early date and has raised and educated his children in a commendable way.  The latter, though young, have since their father’s death two years ago, have run their farm in the best manner possible and are said to be regular “heroes” to work, and of whom their widowed mother is justly proud.  Opposite Warner’s [sic] we find O. Dodge, the prince of good fellows.  He practices law and we pity the man opposed to his client in a suit where he appears.  He is an old settler on the river and is known in many portions of the state; reads the HERALD and says it is one of the best enterprises ever started on the river.  Next we find D. McNair, a hard-working, industrious, enterprising man.  He owns a fine farm and in a fine state of cultivation, and in addition to running his farm he does a good business in logging.
