At tho family homo four miles south of Lakeview, March 5, 1007, David II. Hartzog, oged 01 years. About two weeks ago Mr. Hartzog was taken sick with pneumonia. He had recovered from this disease, when convention of the kidneys Bet in and took bini away within a short time. Mr. Hartzog was an honored mem ber of the Masonic order and a mem ber of the Haptist church. He was a man of generous impulsed und never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. The stranger, even though a betrgar never failed to find food aud hhelter if he fought it at his hands, and be was at home by the bedside of the sick and delighted in all kinds and neighborly offices. He had borne adversity bravely and en joyed prosperity quietly. He bad fill ed the various relations of life, as son husband, father, brother, friend, and filled then well. Who can do more? Hut he is gone ! Another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old settlers, and a solitary woman in the midst of life, ai d a lone ly home, are left to attest bow sadly they will miss bim It must be so; these tender human ties cannot be severed without a pang. Yet in such a death there is really no cause for grief. His work was well done. He was a devoted ' husband and a kind and indulgent father; to bis friends the soul of fellowship. Hut the gt eatest of all was he as a man. And as a man it is that those who knew him best most love to contem plate him. He believed in the father hood of God and the brotherhood of man. He believed that the man who scatters flowers in the pathway of his fellow men, who lets into the dark places of life the sunshine of human sympathy and human happiness, is following in the footsteps of his Mas ter. He was a man who united sound sense with strong convictions, and a eviA, outspoken' temper, emi nently fitted to mould the rude ele ments of poneer society into form and consistency, and aid in raising a high standard of citizenship in our young aud growing community. How much this commnuity owes him and such as be, it is impossible to esti- mate, though task to trace some of the to hold him it would be a gratefnl bis influence through more direct channels, up in these degenerate days, in his various characters of bus band and father, of neighbor and friend. Hut it comes not withiu the scope ot this brief article to do so. Suffice it to say, he lived nobly and died peacefully at. the advanced age of CI years. Thejsteru Reaper found him, "as a shock of corn, fully ripe for the harvest." Besides a wide circle of friends - he leaves a wife, cio son, Edward, of Pine Creek, Misses Pearl, Clara and Delpha who are living at home. The remains weere taken to Pine Creek Wednesday, where they were laid to rest under the auspiciesof the Masou io lodge of Lakeview. School Program.

WOOL PRICE MAY BE HOT SO GOOD, riore wool and a Much Better Staple. VERT LITTLE SCAB THIS TEAR. Coyote are Getting Numerous on the Desert. Cause Host Loss Among the Sheep. That the price of wool this year will be slightly under the figure paid last year, is the prophesy of local dealers. The reasons given are that last, year through the months of January, Feb ruaiy aud March, considerable wool was contracted for on the sheep's backs- Advance payments were made, the interest on which could amount to very large sums. The fact dealers made small profits on these purchases has kept tLem from buying so early this year. Up to the present time, very little, if any wool has been con tracted for, and it is not expected that any spirited 'campaign Jof con tracting will be carried on, most buy ers preferring to wait till shearing time, or nearly so. When it is re membered that some of the wool that was contracted for a year ago has not yet reached the purchasers, it will be readily seen that the interest, at a very reasonable rate would equal a fair profit on these purchases. The price of wool for the past two years has been so nearly the limit that the slighest inflation in local prices in volves a loss to buyers .and delayed shipments causThe matter of Inter' est td flgTirAipisinst profits. While no serious reduction is contemplated, local dealers say they expect the price to be a little under last year's prices. - From what we can learn the clip will be up to that of last year in weight and the staple better. Last year there was some scab, while very little scab has made its appearance in very few bands. Then again, sheep have been in good condition throughout the year, and the fleece growing all the while. Stock Inspector M alloy states that out of 2G bands inspected on his recent trip over the eastern part of the coun ty, i of the bands had scab and 22 were clean. Last year sheep sheared 5 to 6 ' pounds, where this year the same sheep wil shear 7 to 8 pounds, so that, while the number of sheep is less than were shorn .last yaer, the aggreagte output will be equal, if uot greater, aud although the price may he a little, uuder last year's price?, the income i.i'i to the county, as a whole will not fall short of last year's. The loss iu range sheep this' winter w ill be almost wholly confined to that caused by varmints. The fact is slightly known and little realized that the rapid iucrease iu coyotes on the ranges is making inroads upon one of the county's chief industries. Sheep $5.50 per Head. Phil Lynch came in town Tuesday from the sheep range. Phil has sold 4000 head of ewes to Frank Kueny for S5.50 per head. Mr. Lynch delivers tho sheep the 20th of 'this month. They will be taken to Steins Moun tains. Phil baa a few ewes left aud about 7,000 head of yearlings and 2-year-old weathers. Mr. Lynch says sheep have done fine on the range and the wool is long, and very little scab exists. Fees for Grazing. For tho information of stockmen who contemplute grazing their stock on the reserve, The Examiner has ob tained the price, that will be charged for grazing privilege. CATTLE AND HORSES. Season.
