T. II. Cloud visited relatives and
friends at New Pine Creek last Sunday.
He reporta great preparations there for
the big public Christmas tree, and that
there are many noticeable improve
ments in the town since hia last visit.
New Pine Creek is doubtless preparing,
also, to put on metropolitan airs when
the railroad arrives.
Before another Yule tide rolls around
The Examiner predicts many more
changes and improvements in Lakeview.
We expect to see, also, our neighbor
Paisley, pride of the north, take gigan
tic strides in the improvement line and
Increase in population ; we expect to see
New Pine Creek discard the village
mantle and build up to the sise of a
town, and possible give space in its
beatlful location for a railroad depot.
Lake county was never more generally
prosperous than now, and, though we
are still a good distance from rapid
transit, outside people are beginning to
know a good thing when they aee it.
We predict that before 1902 ia written
on the ledger Lake county will have
increased in population at least three
hundred. Three hundred new people
in our sparsely populated territory will
count considerably in our commerce and

there are strong hopes for his recovery.
Mr. Innes' many friends will regret to
learn of bis misfortune. His brother
Cbarles went to Reno last week to ren
der any assistance possible.
The New Era aays that "it ia rumored
that the Oregon Midland railroad is
making preparations to extend their
line to Lakeview next summer, and the
Lakeview people are rejoicing according
ly. It is also thought by many that the
A. C. O. will reach Lakeview before
work closes down next fall." Judging
from all reporta Lakeview ia to become
a second Kansas City inside of two years.
But there railroads are still on paper
and will never be built until they get on
You are not going to overlook The
Examiner this Christmas, are you? We
want to reach that 1,200 point in our
circulation in 1001, and we are gradually
moving up to that mark. Spend two
dollars and subscribe for a copy of The
Examiner and send it to a relative or
friend for a year, thereby making two
people happy, aa well aa yourself. A

an absent relative or friend.
