had secured tin services of a private

party, ami t he driver of the vehicle
was compelled to return to Bonanza
on learning of I he ilea III of his brother.
Mr. Conn and Miss Foster were there
fore left to drive the rent of the way
to Ashland. Neither being familiar
with the way, the horses were allow

I ItarknesM soon came and vet no
house was In sight. It was j uit

scale thin others, and have i v av

at me own couutliry mln; why they
own the government av New York,
Chicago, P.uffalo and San Francisco J
ami af they want a tiling in Minne
polis they get It, although they are
so many S wades inthatcily. I have
heard to, that the only difference
then- Is between Swaden and Minne
apolis Is t hat thciv are more Svvades
In Minneapolis. Some, undoubtedly,
are born bigger than others, and a
slu rub pine by no amount av culti
vatiu' ami stlmulints can be Incour-
aged to Im'coiuc a California jilne.
Ibit as Father Charlie, the saints
rest his soul, used to say, 'In the
main, howlvir, such differences are
due not to unlikenesM In the amount
av tndowment, but to the way in
which differint jM'oplo trate their

BelveM for their limited n.billtien on
the ground that while the Irish and
the Yankees are Janlucn they thim
hcIvcm have had to earn all that they
are. Well, as a rule Ole, and ye may
put It down as sound philosophy,
those who are called JunluseH among
me count hry-iuln have had to earn
all that they are. Croker, Ames,
Harrison, Kichiner, Roberts, White
and the rest av me counthry-min

used to tell me, is ordinarily simple
Latin fur head worruk. Now whin
the thralnln that a man submits
hliusilf to is out lu the open so that
mln can see It, the results of It are
called talent; when the thrulniu he
submits hlmsllf to Is In sac ret so that
nobody knows anything av It, the
results are called Jenlns; so that tho
differince bet wane a Shwado who
can't, and one of me comithry.mln
who can, Is substantially the uiffer-
leuce bet wane hulness and hard '

Ole, would kupc our money In that

For t here Im not any differince I Ite-
lleve In our ability to make money

Im due purely to the differirit an un
equal pressure exercised by differint

mln have no anamation purpose, as
I wanst heard a preacher say, never

i Itsilf to a man's powers in Just the
way that a burnin' glass does to the

focuses thlm upon a pint, and makes
i hate and combustion. Now Ole. me
bye, the glass don't make sunbameH,

j luu moment of temporary insanity
I Mrs. Willis Scamtuon attempted to
j take her own life one day last week
j at her home in Plush. She was dis
covered in the act of blowing out
her brains, when the weapon was
taken away from her. Later she
locked herself in a room and with a
razor she slushed her throat, but as
the gash was not serious she was in
the act of making another attempt
when some one broke through a
window and took the razor from
her, A physician was summoned
and the wound stitched up, and she
Is now on the high road ro recovery.
Two Dancing Clubs.
Another dancing club was organ
ised last week to meet at Post &
King's hall, and on the same night
as the one that has Irxmi holding
sway at Hurry's hall. Saturday
was the scene of much revelry in two
dance halls, only two blinks apart.
The cause of the new organization
was that some people don't like to
dance anything but round dances,
while others can't or don't cure to
dance that kind. So Lakevlew has
two dancing clubs, and both were
well attended Saturday night, and
the crowds had a royal good time.
The new club was well attended, as
some jK'oplo camo in from the coun
try, and tho old time quadrille was
called out lu regular old time stylo by
l'hll Mulkey. The crowd In the old
halls aid they had as good a time its
they ever had, ho everybody seems
to liosatlsfled, and the dances will go
iiiei illy oa every Saturday night
until they get tired of It.
The Smallest Levy Except One
Since i8975tate' Expenses
Lake County's Levy.
In accordance with the provision
of section 3091 of KelllngTT and Cat
ton's Annotate Codes and Statues
of Oregon, Oovernor Oeer, Secretary
of StaU? Duubnr and Ntat Treasur
er Moore have prepared a statement
of the computation and apportion
ment of the state levy of taxes for
the year 1903. It consists of nil the
items of excuse and all items of de
ficiency, Including interest on unpaid
warrants, amounting to ',0S4.5S;
current exiM-nses of the Oregon Na
tional (Juard, amounting to 4.",(''0;
support of the University of Oregon,
I'.aoO; State Agricultural College,
2."),0U0; the estimated exiense of one
session of the Legislative Assembly,
?."O,0U0, and the estimated total cost
of such additional public building
and Improvement of same for the
fiscal year of 1903. The total amount
of revenue to lie raised by taxation
for state purposes for the ensuing
year Is estimated at $"3j,000. With
the exception of the year 1900, the
levy for which was $071,478.78, th!
amount is the lowest levy since 1897.
Tne levy for the year 1902 was $737,

eral counties, and Lake's percentage
is .0107. Amount to be raised is $7,

College, making a total of $S,1:!2.00.
Returned from Crook County.
John Reid and Win. Uenham re
turned last week from atrip toCrook
county where they went to purchase
a bunch of sheep. They found that
sheep in that County were very poor,
owing to the scarcity of fall range.
In fact all kinds of stock were thin,
and they did not find but one good
Uvfsteak or mutton chop that was
from a fat animal while they were
gone. They visited the famous Hay'
( reek sheep ranch where all kinds
of the best Imported blooded stock
are bred and sold at fancy price.
Before leavingthere Mr. Held conclud
ed that he would.liketo have a bunch
of the Uamboulette sheep, but as he
could not drive them to Lake county
now he got an aption on a band of
."00 head, besides a number of regis
tered bucks of the same st(x k. Mr.
Held says that sheep in that County
run on the Government reserve ami
that they are only allowed a certain
acreage for each band, so the sheep
are run in bands not to exceed 1G0O
head, and then the feed is not suf
ficient to keep the sheep fat like they
are in Lake County.
The Siskiyou News of Yreka, re
ceived from Siskiyou County for its
share of Its county work for the past
three months the sum of $l,7.").tt0,
for printing only. This paltry sum
should make the County Court of
Lake County feel as though they had
lieen outrageously robbed by tho
papers of Lakevlew for their extrava
gant prices. The Yreka paper actual
ly received more for printing In three
mouths than has leen paid to all tho
newspapers in Lake county for the
period of the past Ave years. But
economy must lie practiced lncounty
affairs, even If tho newspapers have
to starve. It Is expected that in a
short time that all notices, etc., will
be written out ou a typewriter ami .
stuck up around over the county, to
save the cost of printing.
