Tlio (nil nr of the linking house of

caused much anxiety mx t suffering. It

euirrnt to the effect that n large nuinWi

instruments er carried out of the

the bankers, having large sums oi money
due them, ordered them deposited to
their credit in some other institution,
but that their debtors (let lined to do this,
and etill hold the money. There are
many pathetic incident in connection
with the failure of this bank that could
- l chronic'ed, it is said. Aside from
the school savings hank, aggregating
from f 1500 to f2,0J0, there are deposits
ct poor widows and orphans, receipts
from beneficiary societies. In several
cases of the amounts so received by
widows and deposited with the bank,
the losses will bring untold hardships,
and the indignation expressed on
aleui's streets on this account might
well strike terror to the hearts of the
bankers. One g -ntleman, a prominent
business man, openly stated that no
violence would be too severe to punish
the despoilers of widows and orphans,
and his indignation was shared by those
v. ho heard him.
The colony of people, who, a fe'v
weeks ago, settled on a body of land
near Paisley, in this county, that our
tdd residents have for years passed over
a "worthless," are wondering why this
land was left to them to locate. They
are writing to their friends in all parts
of the country to come to Lake county
and take up some "worthless'' land. In
a very short time these colonists will
have homes on this "worthless" land
that will make the homes of some of
theold-timers look like thirty cents.
A prominent business man of l.ake
view we won't give his name for fear
some people may call him a "crank"
makes the assertion that in no part of
Lake county is it necessary to irrigate to
raise uimmI crops of grain, and in many
localities it is imnecessMrv to irrigate to
grow alfalfa. He even asserts that the
great "desert" of Ijike countv could be
made the abode of hundreds of thrifty
homes ami ranches without the irriga
tion idea tieiug adhered to. Cultivation,
this gentleman claims, is the important
step to W taken thorough cultivation.
He helivca that water for domestic pur
poses can lie found easily on the"desert,"
and that theie la sufficient moisture in
the earth to raise crops without arti
ficial uses. He claims that all that is
necessary to make the west sde of
tiootte Lake one continued stretch of
alfalfa and garden ia thorough clearing
and cultivation. With the ground
cleared the abode of the jackrabbit
would tie removed to other localities,
and, in the absence of that festive gar
den despoilcr, fine settings of a (a If a
could lie made in that locality, and gar
dens would flourish like t "green bay
The Examiner believes it is lack of
industry and a spirit of pessimism, gen
erally prevailing in this country, that
keeps back general improvement. Our
people make a living and a little more
with too little exertion. We venture
the assertion that some day there will
scarcely be a foot of laud on the "des
ert" that will not be put to some use.
A thrifty lot of new (teople will apfiear
in our midst people who tiave budded
homes far away from here, under many
disadvantages, and know what it is to
earn bread by tiie sweat of the brow
and then there w ill lie seen a great trans
formation in this section. More people
and thrifty people are what we want in
By this we do not imply that the major
ity of jieople here are indolent, hut that
they make a living w ith too little exer
tion and without aay effort at improve
ment or bettering their conditions of
life. With more energy, exertion, good,
hard work, a wonderful change could be
made in Iake county. There is no
doubting the assertion that in the near
future many thousands of acres of land
now considered worthless because
