M. Miller and Mrs. Cobb in Oakland on

Knlghta Banquet Their Friends.
(iiHiso Lake Lodge No. lUi, K. of P.,
had initiation and installation ceremon
ies al Odd Fellows hull last Tuesday
evening. Tho Examiner has neither
time or apace to give tho details in this
issue of the enjoyable hanijuet thilt fol
lowed, hut from the expressions heard
on tho street next morning there is no
discount on thu noblo Knights' ability
hh royal entertainers. Many were
their friends who sat at thu festnl hoard
and partook of true Pythian hospitality,
(ioo. T. Hatchelder, who has con
ducted the city express business in a
very satisfactory manner for a year puet,
has aold tho business to I). F. Doolin,
who has la-en engaged in freighting be
tween Lakeviow and Teriuo. The now
expressman is a rustier and the public
may look for as good service ut his
order to give the grand jury time to find bands, as Mr. Katchelder gave.
The Eagleville Riot,
Tho Ft. Lid w ell correspondent in the
Cedarvillo Record takes Tho Examiner
to task for mixing Ft. Lid well with
Eaglevillu. The Kxaminer cheerfully re
publishes the words of tho correspond
ent to t-how the unintentional error
which dropped into its columns. We
ure pleased to note that Ft. Lidwoll is
fiee from rinW and breaches of the
K'iice. The correspondent says:
The Lukeview Examiner publishes
the Tom Itrowu saloon riot, which oc
curred in Eagleville, but according to the
Kxaminer statement it occurred at Lid
well. Wo have lived in Bidwell nearly
30 years, and no man by the name of
Tom Lrown ever attempted to run a
saloon in this town, and The Examiner
must surely have labored under a hal
lucination or suffering with a bad cold
in tho head when it mistook Lidwell for
Local Institute In Warner.
On Saturday, iVi-cmbor i!Sth, accord
ing to npHintuient, a local institute
was held ut tho school house in tho
IVep Creek district, Warner valley.
County Superintendent Willits, and all
the teachers in Warner valley wero
present and an interesting session was
Interesting and suggestive putiora

At the close of the session all were in
vited to a sumptuous dinner prepared
by Mrs. Win. Routsou, for which all

Hundred of 5calpa Destroyed.
Early Monday morning the tweet and
deliciout aroma of bandredt of burning
cat and coyote scalp in the court bouse
yard permeated the atmosphere in the
heart and surroundings of LaXeview.
Tbe aroma was so thick one could
tatte it. Sheriff Daulap bad the job of
destroying these scalps, a work which it
much coveted by tbe court bouse offi
cials. Judge Tonningaea and Com
missonert Martin and Prose declare that
it is not the Sheriff's duty, but that the
court will hereafter attend to that pleas
ant work. Clerk Gunther thinks he
should be allowed to do the burning as
he is tbe custodian of the scalps.
We presume the matter will be set
tled by an order of the court. Assistant
Clerk Miss Burrustayt the has no desire
to claim any right or privileges in the
Sculpt to the amount of $2,272 weut
up in smoke Monday morning.
Mist Myer a Stockraier.
Jack Partin, the Summer Lake stock
man, accompanied by bit niece, Mist
Polly Myer, came down to Paisley Mon
day after some cattf, says the Post.
Miss Myer visited the family of John
I ru m in while here. Jack says the win
ter up his way it a model one for feeding.
Miss Myer is one of those energetic
Oregon girls who bat nerve and ability
to take advantage of the opportunities in
this country for making money.
She is enicaged in cattle raising and at
tends to all matters of business, helps
about gathering cattle from the range
and is as good a vuquero as many of thu
men w ho follow that avocation. She has
her string of saddle horses eonie of the
best that are on the range, too and she
dashes over all torts of rough country
after ''the yearling". She rode down
Monday on one of her best saddle ani
mals after some stray cattle. She runs
her cattle with Jack Partin, her uncle.
Miss Myer is tho daughter of Albert
Myer of Sawyer's Bar, Siskiyou county.
Alturas Plaindealer: Special l'cputy
Goo. Bennett went to Bidwell lust week
aud subpoenaed C. D. Kafader, Charley
Fee, the two Hickorsou boys and an
other witness whoso name we cannot re
call, to appear before the Grand Jury.
They arrived Saturday evening and an
evening session was held to hear their
ovidon-e in the Mays-Conlan cutting af
fray. They informed us that young
Conlan was getting along all right and
would soon be out again. Mays made
his ecscaoo into Oregon. This is the

Funeral of Walter Brown.
The funerpl of Walter Lrown was
held from the Methodist churcli, last
Friday at 3 p. m. The business places
were closed and the County Court ad
journed during the funeral out of re
spect for deceased and the mourning
family. The caket containing the re
mains was carried by the pallbearers
to the church headed by the pupils of
the department of the public school
which deceased attended.
The pallbearers were F. B. Evans,
D. C. Schminck, Elmer C Ahlstrom,
Fred O. Ahlstrom, Milton Sharp and
Harry Glasier. The casket was
covered with beautiful flowers. Tbe
church waa crowded to the outer door
and many could not gain entrance. The
choir sung appropriate music and the
minister, Rev. C. W.Ilolloman, preach
ed a tender, impressive and almost el
oquent sermon. The solemn procession
moved to the cemetery, the classmates
of deceased marching in twos and lead
ing the procession. It was one of the
most largely attended funerals ever
held in Lakeview; all the available car
riages in town and many from the
country followed the hearse. The grave
waa surrounded by a carpet of ever
greens. In a very few moments the
preacher said the final prayer and all
that was mortal of the lieloved Walter
Lrown was consigned to the tomb.
Many were the tears that dropped from
the eyes of sorrowing friends, us tho
clod-s of the valley fell upon the casket,
lie is dead, but not forgotten.
The residence of Mr. and Mrs. George
Down at the hot springs was the scene
of a joyful event on Wednesday evening
January 1st. At that time Judge Ton
ningsen joined in wedlock Mr. Bert
Nichols and Miss Mamie Grimes, eldest
daughter of Gainford Grimes. After
the ceremony a wedding supper was
aerved. Tho bride is an esti-nablo
young lady aud fully understands the
duties of keeping house and making a
husband happy. The groom formerly
lived at Med ford and came here about
a year ago. He is a pleasant and
agreeable young man, and all who know
him like him. Tho Examiner wishes
tho young couple much happiness.
Beautiful Photo Work.
George Reid, the amateur photograph
er, has taken a three section picture of
Lakeview, which is pronounced the
best ever seen of our growing little city.
Every s.'ction is of a like shade, and
this is considered a ditlicult piece of
photographic work. Over fifty orders
for these pictures have been handed in
to Postmaster Wilcox, and Mr. Reid
will be kept busy mounting tho views.
Everybody should have one of those
