Why Canada'! Increase should le

With natural resource similar to the
United States and a population ol ener
getic and progressive people it is strange
that such a difference exists in the rate
of liiceas; The difference must be at
tributed to the laws and Institutions of
Uiis country more than anything else,
A Literal Interpretation.
"Children," aaid the teacher, while
Instructing the class In composition,
"you should not attempt any Mights of
fancy, but simply be yourselves and
write what is in you. Do not Imitate
any other person's writings or draw in
spiration Irom outside sources."
As a result of this advice Johnny Wise
turned in the following composition:
'We should not otteropt any ' flites ol
fancy, but rite what U In us. In me
the e is my etuuilck, lungs, heart, liver,
two apples one piece of pie, one stick
of lemon candy and my dinner."

The wedding of Prof. J. L. Smith to
Mia Hattie Walter last Tuesday came
aa a surprise to their many friends.
While it was known that their thought
had been in that direction for Some
time, it came all too suoSlen. , '
Kev. O. W. Hollman performetl tlie
ceremony at 5 :30 r. m. Tuesday, at the
residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. M.T. Walters, in the presence of
only immediate relatives of the family.
Mrs. Smith was the last remaining
unmarried daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Walters and their borne is now left
without any of their . childreu. Mr.
Smith cam to Lakeview a few years ago
to accept a position as principal of the
Lakeview achoofT'liatij since be.ame an
agent of one of the leading life insur
ance companies of Oregon. Both of the
contracting parties are too well and
favorably known in Lakeview to need
any words from The Kxantiner, but suf
fice it to aayj(that they are numbered
among Lakeview's best society .

What a Dot Did.
The Seattle Times tell, of a combat be
tween a man and a huge glacier lie.r in
Alaska, in which the life of the man was
saved by a small mongrel dog, which he
had threatened several times to kill, be
cause, aa he said, the dint was no "ac
count." When the bear had struck
down the man and beaten bim into in
senMibility, it started away, carrying the
unconscious body. The faithful dog fol
lowed and bit the beel of the monster
until it dropped its burden and turned
its attention to the dog. The trusty ser
vitor made a hurried escape, drawing
the bear after hiioi-' A- second titnedid
the bear return and try to drag the body
of the man to its lair. A second time
did the d )g so worry and harass the
Arctic animal that it was again forced to
drop its prey. At this time a party of
rescuer came and killed the bear. The
torn and bleeding form of the man was
carried back, to camp, and his life waa
saved. A dog is often the best friend a
man has. It does not deeert him in mis
fortune. His friends may turn from
bim in the hour of trouble but bis dog-
never. Through summer's heat and
winter's wind, whether or not there be
food and shelter, the faithful animal will
Without murmur or desertion will re
ceive the kicks of its master in the fiU
of ill temper, and run to lick his hand
when the sunshine comes again. It will
guard bis home, watch over his chil
dren, protect his wife and all w ithout
pi ice or hope of rew ard.
There is no more sincere mourner.
In many cases he has remained for
days watching his master's grave.
A telephone message was received
from Mrs. Geo. Conn at'Paisley by Coro

Geo. Clark had been found dead io the
hills between the ZX ranch and Abort
Lake. Owing to sickness in Mr. Har
ris' family he was unable to go op, so
phoned back to have Alvtn Moaa, jus
tice of the piece for that precinct, hold
an inquest and ascertain the cause of
death. As Mr. Moss waa not at Paisley
at the time there will be some delay

, Tha Colonel Oplnea,
Our Lake county co-temporarie are
again building railroads on paper. Our
candid opinion is that all this talk about
tha Klamathan. the Anderson, the Me-
Clood and other roads now projected or
in course of construction will end on. trie
timber lands owned by the companies
building the roads. They are simply
lumber roads and nothing else. The N-C-0
Ry., U Is apparent to ua, is prepar
ing for a prolonged stay at Madeline
Evcrythics tends that way. YW
Flah In Crater Lake.
It ia said that J. S. Diller. the U. S.
geologist, has written to Dr. E. Kirch-
gessnerof Medford, from Washington,
under date of Nov. 1st, among other
things regarding Crater Lake as follows :
"Durina mr visit there this summer
(1901) we found some trout in Crater
Laka fullv 30 inches in length and it is
evident that tb lake must have been
stocked many years ago. Do you know
of any one putting trout in the lake at
an early uateT If so I snail be greatly
obliged for definite Information concern
ing the matter."
In 1807 the United States officials
nlaced some trout in Crater Lake and
those of which Mr. Diller speak must
be some of them.

Ten Dollar Note Isaued by Treas
ury Department In Honor of '
Lewis and Clark Fair.
The new 10 United States legal tender
note, recently authorised by the Treas
ury Department, has mad iu appear
ance at Salem. It came from Paying
Teller Gibbon, of the Treasury Depart
ment at Washington, being one of the
first sent out from the Department. It
mav well be called the Lew is and Clark
Exposition note, as it is certainly com
memorative of the proposed Exposition
to be held in Portland in 1905.
The striking lea m re of the face of the
new note is the vignette of a buffalo,
which nccnpies the center, and is slight
ly larger than the Indian on the new 5
note recently issued. On one side of the
buffalo is a smaller vignette of Lewis,
and on the opposite side a vignette of
Clark. The portraits of Lewis and
Clare give Oregon the right to claim
that the note is commemortive of the
Exposition of 1905, and this claim ia
certainly well founded It baa been tbe
deeire of the Treasury Department to
have each denomination of Government
note bear soma disiinguiahing mark on
its face, which w ill be prominent above
all else. Aa the Indian does on tbe
new 5 note, it was thought the buffalo
would readily indentify the now tens,
besides being a purely American figure.
The agitation on the Lewis and Clark
Exposition had reached the ears of de
partment officials, and io casting about
for two allied prominent Americans,
these explorers were recalled. Further
more, this being an area of expansion,
it wa thought all tbe more appropriate
that two men who added , such a vast
and rich territory to the United States
might now be properly and fittingly re
membered and for these reasons tbe por
traits of Lewi and Clark were selected
to adorn tbo new 10 notes. The design
is a most beautiful one, and the . new
notes will be thoroughly appreciated by
all who secure a goodly supply of them.
Telephone Directors Meeting;.
A meeting of tbe directors of the
Lakeview Silver Lake Telephone Com
pany was called last Saturday for tbe
purpose of settleing op the affairs of the
company after the completion of the
line. The meeting lasted two days.
Saturday and Monday. , t
It was found that the line bad cost
more than had been anticipated, and
that 1,994 bad been expended more
than the 5,000 of original stock sub
scribed. There waa also found 332.45
worth of material left on hand. It waa
decided to iucrease the stock to the full
amount of the cost of the line, or o994.
Each ol the directors increased their
stock to 500 each, leaving a balance to
be subscribed by non-stockholders of
1,044. In two hours after the meeting
had adiourned enough had been sub
scribed to reduce the balance down to
14(54. This lattei amount is not ex
pected to remain long, a several par
tita who have heretofore expressed a de
sire to take stock, had not been seen opto
the time of going to presa. The di
rectors decided in order to make tne
tvblic more familiar with the working
of the line, to give the free use of the
phones at every office of the company,
tr. all atiiMcribera and intending patron
of the line, on Friday aud Saturday.
Rvnrmne wboexoecU to have bu8ines
over this lineehoul avail themselves of
this opportunity. You can talk 100
miles just as easy aa you can to anyone
in the same room.
Since the above waa put in type there
i.aa hAn 1171 rtaid in. most of which ia
for stock sold, and the remainder for a
nhnn and some material that had been
sold by the company. The balance of
indebtedness now Is 293.
