DRAINACE OF COOS LAKE.
If Uoos Lnko is to bo drained ex
clusively iu the interests of the Sacra
mento Valley Irrigation project, with
out any consideration of local benefits
the scheme will certainly le looked
upon by the people of Lake and
Modoc counties as a case of appropria
tion. , However, it is believed that be
fore the lake is drained, experts on
soil w ill be sent hero to lore into the
lake bed to ascertain the character
of the soil, its depth and adaptability
. to agricultural purposes. If it is
found that the large body of land now
covered with water is valuable for ug
rlcultrnal land and will materially in
crease the acreage of agricultural
lands in these two counties, thusmak
( ing available a sufficient number of
prosperous homes to offset the detri
. nienal features of the scheme, then
: the plan of the government to drain
the lake must be looked upon as a
benefit rather than a detriment to the
two counties most affected by the
Tne Examiner brought this subject
. tip for discussion by the people inter
ested over a year ago, when the plan
was first seriously talked of by the
government, and offered space for its
discussion. Evidently the matter was
thought of lightly, regardless of the
predictions of this paper that such a
scheme was not at all unlikely, and
very little was said about it. Now
that the government has taken detin
ate steps to drain the lake, piotests
will necessarily have to be of strong
character to divert the government's
agents from their purposes.
The dead body of a person was found
. . recently . near Kennett, in Shasta
county, Calif., which was supposed
at the time to be the remains of a
man named Miller, who had suddenly
' disappeard ' several months before.
' The body was badly decayed and iden
tification was impossible. . Examina
tion by the coroneread to the belief
that the body was that of a woman,
although the outer clothing was
men's garments, the under clothing
were woman's garments and fastened '
; with safety pins, thirteen of which
were found ; the shoes were No. 5
women shoes and the skull was be
lieved to be a woman's and the heighth
of the skeleton and size of the- bones
all indioated that the remains were
that of a woman.
The people who visited our city
from Alturas last week say they had a
good time, and always have a good
time here. There is nothing particu
, larly astonishing about it ; they are
J the kind of people that, have a good
j time wherever they go ; open-hearted
liberal almost to a fault, and make
friends wherever they make acquaint
ances. Lakeivew appreciates their
visits and always warm up when it
hears "Alturas is coming. " In fact
Lake county as a whole, recognizes
in Modoc a warm friend, and always
feels glad when a risitor from any of
the Modoc towns can pay any of our
towns a call.
The people effected by the creation
' of the Goose Lake and Freeraout for
est reserves who will be displeased
with their permancy will have no one
"to blame but themselves. They were
warned time and again that such a
move was under serious consideration,
and that Senator Fulton stood ready
to use his influence in their behalf at
their simple command. After waiting
long for protests, if any. he was com
pelled to step out of the way. Where
protests were sent in to him, he has
succeeded in relieving the people of
the burdensome reserve, as in the case
. in Curry county.
Another withdrawal in the Susan
ville, California, land district, em
braces all of Goose Lake not in the
withdrawal announced iu The Exam
. lner a couple of weeks ago in the
Lakeview land district, and all the
land lying along the margin of the
lake and along Pitt river, down nearly
as far as Alturas. These withdrawals
are supposed to be made for the pur
pose of draining the lake iu the
furthereuce of the Sacramento Valley
Adel, Oregon, July 7, lPOrt.
I will endeavor to drop you a few
lines to let you know that we are still
in the land of the living and Incident
ally give you some of tho happenings
of Adel and surrounding country.
The merry hum of the mower has
been hoard here since the morning of
the oth, In the numerous alfalfa Holds,
but tho rutting of wild hay will not
commence before about the l."th or
20th of this month.
The Warner Valley Stock Co. is
putting iu a phone at the ranch to
connect with tho Dent line, they are
also going to extend the line on to
Wal'er Pent and Hi Manriug arrived
here about midnight the Oth Inst ami
showed by their looks and actions
that they uiunistakeably had a bully
time iu Lakeview on the glorious
Fourth. (Hoys we wont tell it all).
Speaking of the Fourth, let me toll
you that we had one of the grandest
picnics at Adel ever had in Warner,
which was held iu the grove at the
Andy Morris place.
The program was as follows: Speak
er, Mr. Friday; Header, Wm. loop
er; music by the Adel orchestra; se
lect singing by Mrs. Fred Messner.
The next was grand dinner, such as!
only the ladies of Warner can furnish.
Now let me say right here, there is
never a subscription paper circulated
in Waruer, but they simply state what
they want ami pass the hat and the
money is always forthcoming. At
first the hat was passed for money for
foot races and money enough was col
lected to give l'beral purses for five
The first race was for girls between
the ages of 9 and llyears. This race
was won by Hazel Givins, purse ( 1.
Second race boys between the ages of
5 and 7, won by CaL Dent, purse 1.
Third race, young men, won by Har
ry Spangler, purse 81. This race was
very hotly contested for as Jim Givin
Uncle Joe Morrow ( allowed to enter
on account of bis age and not his av
irdupois) G. W. Wise, Fred Messner,
Mitchell and Mr. Pond. Fred Mess
ner would no doubt have won this race
but his hat blew off owing to his
wonderful speed when he was 30 feet
open daylight ahead, which caused
the sun to shine so hot on his head
(which is entirely void of hair) that
Fred was over come by the heat and
fell prostrated within forty feet of the
outcome. The race was won by Mr.
Pond, time 50 minutes 30 seconds.
The last race . was for slim women
and was contested for by Mrs. J. F.
Morris, Mrs. S. Dixon, Mrs. G. W.
Wise and Mrs. Wm. Koutson. Dis
tance GO yards. Time one hour and 3
minutes. Won by Mrs. Dixou. This
concluded the exercises for the day.
Andy Morris who was to bring the
fire works for the evening arrived just
after the last race and as it was grow
ing late, and some were unable to re
turn later in the evening it was decid
ed to have the fire works at once,
Andy to keep them safe and away from
the sun, had taken the precaution to
wrap them up in his bed, so he at
once commenced to unroll his bed and
bring forth the fire works, but greatly
to Andy's surprise there was only a
bed full of reptiles (caused no doubt
from being in Lakeview for a week).
The fire works had all disappeared
but as the snakes looked uncommonly
full the boys thought they must have
swallowed the fire works, not to be
outdone, they at once seized a snakes
tail, each broke the end off and appli
ed a match and as they were turned
loose sky rockets, Roman candles, fire
craepkers, niger chasers, giant fire
crackers and almost every thing in the
shape of fire works was being explod
ed all about the ground as the snakes
rushed from one part of the grounds
to another. When the fire works were
all over we all looked around for our
women and children, we found all the
women standing on top of fence posts,
some screaming snake some mouse.

Must Close Sunday.
Mayor Martin has notified all the
saloon keepers of this city that they
must close their bars at 12 o'clock
Saturday niht aud keep thorn closed
until 12 o'clock Sunday night, aud
that all forms of gambling must cease.
So far as the gambling is concerned
we approve the mayor's action, as
the town has been overrun by tinhorns
ana tne saloon keepers nave no one
but themselves to blame for flaunting
the vice before the public. If the
gambling had been quietly conducted
in out of the way pluces where only
old and confirmed patrons of the gam
es would seek it out, comparatively
little harm would have been done,
but to conduct games of chance open
ly in the saloons is to entice the
young aud inexperienced into them
aud cause the moral aud financial ruin
of many a young man w ho would not
otherwise have been tempted from the
paths of rectitude.
Gambling, of course, will go on.
It is impossible to stop it completely
in a city. It will not be conducted
openly, but will be hidden from the
common gaze, perhaps from the po
lice. Some of our so called best citi
zens gamble. Many a quiet game will
be conducted in secluded and well
guarded places. These high-toned
gamblers are the ones that ought to
be pulled. Hut, oh no, our police
authorities would ueer think of that.
Instead, they love to pull some poor
piker who has neither money nor
friends. Klamath Falls Express.

Patronizing home industry is not to
be taken aa a one-sided proposition
the Eugene Register thinks. It does
not consist solely in the people who
are the buyers, doing their trading
with the local merchants. It means
that and more. It means that the
merchants who have goods to Bell, are
jubt as anxious to buy what tho farm
ers have to sell and that the farmers
are equally ready to sell their produce
locally and buy what they need at
home locally instead of sending off to
distant linns the cash that will buy as
much and as good material at home.
Therefore, the full meaning of the
term "Patronizing home industry"
resohes itself into a system of geiiuine
reciprocity of mutual good between
all classes of people, the farmer, min
er, manufacturer, capitalist, laborer
and merchant. When the good of the
whole community stands out para
mount to everything else, standing by
home industry in all that the term Im
plies will be better understood and
more readily followed. Ex.

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional reme
dies. Deafness is caused by an inflam
ed condition of the mucous lining of
the Eustachian Tube. When this tube
is inflamed you have a rumbling sound
or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed, Deafness is the result,
and unless the inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored
its normal condition, hearing will
destroyed forever; nine cases out
ten are caused by Catarrh, which
nothing but an inflamed condition
the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by
Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu
