Robert Paddock, Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Eastern Oregon, gave an interesting lecture on his travels in Europe on Satuiday night in the Cougregational ohurch. What is the matter that Lexington has no doctor. A good doctor is needed in our town. Some of our people are beginning to think that they pay enough in railroad fare and livery bills to support a doctor. There seems to be more property changing hands and more people moving in and going out thsn ever before. We are glad to note the fact, however, that for every one moving away there an two new comers.
