Mow the Loving Wife of

A pathetic atory of devoted love and
eonatancy cornea from San Quentin

H. II. Church iu Sonoma county, ia con

on a hill near the priaon walla ahe could
feu King, with many other con victa, line
up in front of the priaon at lock-up

would be atauding, and every evening at
the line-up a grinnimt row of convict
watched King throw frantic kinaea at
the little woman on the hill, and the
woman reciprocate by tclegraphin: her
love by mean of paraaol or handker

dozetiH of convicts to answer back the
little woman' signals of affection, and
the devotion of Mr. King waa becom

for a hundred hard citizen ia tripes. .
Dut all tliis waa soon to end. The
prison otliciala learned of the action of
the convicts, and, despite King's many
objections, he was removed to a tier of

High Water During tha Past Week
Reported From Every Direction.
Word comes by driver Sam Iuke of
the Southern that 1'itt River, at Alturas,
had overflowed its banks and was a rag
ing torrent last Saturday morning.
Walter Duke said that when he left Al
turns that morning the water was lap
ping the planks on the bridge over that
stream in Alturas, and that where the
bridge spans the same stream eight
miles this side of the town the water
waa several feet deep on the level road.
All the streams were up and the roads
in bad condition. The stage arriving
from the south, due here Saturday
night, did not arrive until Sunday morn
ing at 4 o'clock.
The streams to the west are also re
Hrled very high, and Monday morning's
mail only brought a few package of
letters. The stage driver from Ager
wrote a note to l'ostmaster Wilcox and
sliped it in Ix-lwecn a package of letters
which explained the non-arrival of the
usual mail. The note read as follows:
"Too high w ater in Bogus."
I-ater advices from Alturas on Sunday
were to the effect that some portions of
the town were under water. Oerator
Walker informed his fellow operator
Boyd that water in his (Walker's) house
was a foot deep. These high tloods are
caused by the recent rain and thaw.
Frank D. Tax ton and Miss Rena Mul
key were married in Lakeview last
Thursday evening, February 14lh, by
Rev. C. 11. Hollomau of the Baptist
church. The wedding was a surprise to
everybody but the parties mostly inter
ested. The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. John Mulkey, and the groom
is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. R. A.
I'axtou of lakeview. The Examiner
wishes the happy couple good fortune.
County Superintendent J. Q. Willits
returned last Saturday from Paisley,
where he has held the Principalship of
the Paisley Public School for some
months, and in which position he gave
general satisfaction. Mr. Willits has
resigned his position in favor of George
McCarthy, a bright young teacher, who
formerly managed the school at Mul
key's. The superintended will give his
attention to the duties of his office, and
will remain in Lakeview. His family
preceded him here three weeks ago.
A Grand Opening
Po't & King: Open Their Handsome
New Brick Saloon to the Public.
Post A King gave their friends a grand
entertiiiitmeut last Saturday night upon
the occasion of the opening of their new
saloon iu their handsome new brick
building on Water street, just opposite
the big merchandise establishment of
George II. Ay res & Co. At 10 oMock an
elegant lunch was spread and every
body was requested to partake and en
joy themselves. A band of music en
livened the occasion, and at the conclu
sion of the fete all proclaimed Pete and
Jonas royal entertainers. When com
pleted Post A King will have the bnest
establishment this side of Portland or
Sacramento. The bar and club rooms
will not be finished until spring, and
w hen all is arranged they will have ex
pended on the interior many hundreds
of dollars. It will be all hardwood
finish and a costly mirror of immense
dimensions will be hung at the back bar.
The doors w ill he of chipped ulass, with
the names of "Post & King" blown iuto
the glass. The cellar will be filled with
a valuable st'x-k of all kinds of liquors
in case and casks, and their cigar de
partment will be stocked with goods
that will please the most fastidious.
The building is two stories, and the
second Moor will probably lie arranged
into neat offices in suites, and a private
club room. Post & King invite all their
friends to call and see them in their
new location. ; '
Runaway Up North.
While up north last week with Mr.
Burke and Wm. Harvey, on telephone
business, S. B. Chandler's team became
frightened just as Mr. Chandler was
alighting at the home of George M.
Jones, near Paisley, and started at break
neck speed toward that town. The ani
mals finally concluded they were not
going toward home and made a sharp
turn. Mr. Chandler had climbed into
the back part of the rig and rode with
the runaways quite a distance before
jumping out, so just as the animals
turned, he caught them before they
could get under good headway again.
Mr. Harvey explains the adventure in
an amusing way, and intimates that Mr.
Chandler had remained too long in the
company of congenial companions before
reaching the Jones place, ami Chandler
retaliates by accusing Harvey of being
"three sheets iu the wind."
The Census Bulletin Only
Gives Us a Population
of 761 The People by
In Lake County.
The late Census bulletin give Lake
view a population of 701. We feel a
good deal like friend Bliton of the Med
ford Mail, that something is radically
wrong with the "durned machinery" of
the government it kn't grind right.
But, of courae, the government census
goes, we presume. They give Lake
county an increase of 243 people in ten
years, ana only 2,847 people all told in
the county. If that is the case there is
room for seven hundred and sixty mil
lion more people. Klamath Falls is
credited with 447 souls, and with Link-
ville precinct added, a population of 852.
According to precinct enumeration the
2,847 people of Lake county are scat
tered about as follows:
No. 1, Silver Lake 229
No. 2, Summer Lake 129
No. 3, Paisley 32t
No. 4, Crooked Creek 150
No. 5. North Warner 143
No. i, South Warner 218
No. 7, South Lakeview 234
No. 8, North Lakeview 527
No. 9, Drews Valley 109
No. 10, Uoose Lake 233
No. 11, Cogswell Creek 319
No. 12, Thomas Creek 230
It is our intention in the near future
to squander some of The Examiner's
wealth in making a new and correct
census enumeration of Lake county.
The New Brewery
Ayrea & Schlagel are Taking- Steam
Beer Soon be on the Market.
The Lakeview Brewery is now in com
plete working order and ia manufactur
ing fine steam beer, which will be ready
for use in ten days. Messrs. Ayres &
Schlagel have engaged the services of
Fred Bogner, the well-known and com
petent brewer of Alturas, who is now
engaged in brewing 300 gallons for a
start. The plant ia entirely new and
first-class, and tL? firm promises the
drinking public the best brew beverage
ever manufactured in Lakeview. They
intend keeping their large cellar com
pletely stocked at all times, and will
soon have works in running order for
bottling beer. The new brewery estab
lishment is more commodious than the
old one destroyed by fire last May. The
"growing" and drying rooms are neatly
and conveniently arranged, and every
thing about the establishment is as neat
is a new pin.
When the brew is ready for use the
firm intends giving a big banquet to the
public, at which- fifty gallons of beer
will be given away.
Then Past"--"Now Present."
For the information of the public The
Examiner desires to correct an error
circulated from an unreliable source to
the effect that the sum of $10 is charged
at this office for the publication of
homestead notices. Since the 1st day
of August, 1900, our charge for these
notices has been $7.50, the lowest price
that any reputable newspaper will ac
cept for the same advertisement. These
notices average 18 lines in small type
and run six weeks, and any fair-minded
citizen knows that $7.50 is not an unjust
charge. In the "then past" $10 was
the price for these notices the country
over; but In the "now present" the
average price ia $7.50. We don't want
anybody to "run amuck" with an erron
The Examiner is in receipt of the
Christmas numbers of the Manila Times
and The American, both published at
Manila, P. I. We are indebted to Ly
man Hopkins for the courtesy. Mr.
Hopkins ia conducting a ferry for the
government sixty miles from Manila
and his sister, Miss Minnie Hopkins, ia
teaching a goverment school in Manila
at a good salary,
Mr. Bryan says be can make $0000 a,
year by writing. That is prosperity.
