Strange as it may seem tin. town
of Lexington has no railroa.l agent,
although the company every year
chips over one hutulreil cars fj
freight, this being lull car, not
counting the freight that is brought
in for the stores and other pur
poses. Wood is now $ S per cord
coal about $10 per ton, and on
this line not a single waiting room

lone is located some IS miles
down the line from Ileppner. This
is a somewhat larger place than
Lexington, there being between
three and live hundred people.
The town has one hotel and a num
ber of restaurants, two drug stores,
a number of general Mures, and tl e
tive saloons there seem to be doing
a thriving business. Wenotictd
only one church. The school
building is a very nice structure
and there is an enrollment of ISO
children. At the present time
there are at least twenty new 'resi
dences in the course of construc
tion or completed. Also a number
of store buildings are going upon
Main street. There is a very good
bank here and the banker has built
here the nicest home in Morrow
county. The price of land may be
judged somewhat when we tell you
that $ 1.50 per foot was offered fur
one of the lots along Main street.
Frank Lewis, a former resident
of Independence, has been here
working in a meat market for the
past two months.
Miss Virginia Beaton, proprietor
of the lone Post, also a former
resident of our town, is doing very
nicely with her newspaper at this

Biggs, on the O. R. & X., is a
little s-tation w'herc you mate the
start on the Columbia Southern
Railway for Shaniko and way
points. When you Jeave Jsigg the
train winds around up a little val
Jey or gorge for in a number of
places there is only room for the
track. Every foot of the seventy
mileB between Biggs and Shaniko
is up hill. At Shaniko you find a
little trading point. The country
tributary to this place is entirely
devoted to stock raising. Shaniko j

There are many streets in Buena
that are of no practical use, except
as a pasture ior loose stock. In
closing these and in keeping stock
out of the streets no harm could
possibly result, while there would
undoubtedly be a movement in

building of sidewalks and fences
that would eventually add much to
the general appearance of the vil
