country long ao, has been the
scarcity of water. It bas loujj been
known that the wateis of tbe valley
could be conveyed onto the desert,
tut no actual tests have been made
until recently; tbe country seeming
to be more valuable for stock range
than it could possibly be for farming
purposes, especially, being, as it is,
so distant from a railroad, and tbe
cost of transporting farm products to
a market. Peaches and strawberries
grow abundantly in that soil and
climate, but without a railroad, such
crops are valueless only for home con
sumption, which is very limited.
Cupid bas been busy with his little
arrow of late. License to wed have
been isused to three young couples
I in this county during the past week.
Last Thursday Mr. Will Grisel and
Miss Leoua I. Cleland, both of Plush,

her. The groom is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. It. B. Grisel of Pine Creek, a
youug muu of meritous character, and
the community congratulates him.
Lust Sunday evening Judge Daly
performed the ceremony that joined
the lives of Mr. Harry 11. Youut and

Tbe sad news of tbe death of Ms. T.
W. Colvin. of Lincolu, Calif., was re
ceived in Lakeview first of tbe week.
Mrs. Colvin died June 21, 1907.
Mr. and Mrs Colvin were early set--tiers

She was a member of the Babtist
Church of New Piue Creek, a member
of theRebekah lodge of Lakeview, and
au honored and loved friend of all
who knew her.
Her Husbund aud one daughter Mrs.
J. S. McLaughlin, survives her.
Newt Stanley of Lakeview, and
Fj E. Stanley of Idaho are brothers of
Iu tho presence of such a sorrow,
bow cold aud iiupoteut are words and
how doubly deep would be the grief
over tho grave did not the rainbow of
Christian hope epau the dark gulf
between time aud eternity, and such
pure, bright lives inspire tbe belief
.hut there is a better world beyond,
where, filled with the corroding cares
united after life's fitful fever.

was being carried ou iu good shape by
Inspectors Proudfoot aud Malloy, and
with one exception, tho vats were in
good shape. The vat iu Camas prairie
was condemned by Mr. Lytle. This
is a serious misfortune for Mrs. Rosa
MoDaniels, who bas spent consider
able money to arrange for dipping,
but it seems that there is not suUH
eut water at tbe McDaniela dipping
