How to Kill Squirrels.
i
I An lilnlio fnrnu r nnd miner has dis
covered a orocess for killing squirrels
which is said to be quite ctlective, as
well as harmless to stock, lie cuts a
stick of dynamite into pieces tw:o or
threo inches long, this is lighted with
a match and thrown down into boles
in the f round where the squirrels live,
the entrance being hastily tilled with
dirt. If theie are a number of holes
a few yards away these holes are
watched and filled up as soon as
smoke is seen coming from them,
llo says it is surprising how much
sinoko and gass is produced by the
little chunck of dynamite. After the
smoke und gas-s is iirectnaily confined
to tho boles no more attention is
necessary . Tho gass asphyxiates tho
squirrels instantly, and squirrel dens
treated iu this way nre never rehabi
tided by other squirrels.

'Jr. Thus. Dalton, who Lought mut-
ton ulK-ep iu Lake county two years
uko, in passim? throuh the county
with a Land of 8000 lioad of tsbeop for
i Sacramento. Ilia string of 18 pack
j homes wan in Lakeview Monday after
supplies for the camps. The eheep
are now on the east side of Waruer
Hoing south.
The tram-fer of between 2j(0 and
3W bead of stock sheep took place
first of tbe week, w hereby a Mr.
Sullivan became the owner of a por
tion of tbe McCormack band. Mr.
McCormack soiuo days a:o, so we dd
demtand tbe deal, sold the sheep to
C. E. Sherlock, and before ttie sheep
were counted out, Mr. Sherlock sold
the baud to Mr, Sullivan. Phil
Lynch went out to the McCormack
raniL'e last Monday to count out the
sheep.
ATicde to be Advertised1.
j Suule two mouths ago a firm, bead
cd by Mr. Charles Young, purchased
j the Amedes property, betweeu here
and Reno, consisting of a largo tract
of land, tho hot mineral springs and a
hotel. Mr. Young was put in charge
of tho property ami has began a cam
paign of advertising. He intends to
make Amedeo the most noted place,
iu tho Uiiited States. It is bis pur
pose to spend S10,UX) in advertising
the place, and inprove it to meet the
expectation of any visitor who might
come there.
Mr. Young is said to be a successful
promoter. He has the property to
bad; his statements, and itwiil not
be surpiising to see, iu the near fu
ture, one of the most noted health re
sorts in America right there at
Auiedee. The hot springs are said to
contuiu mineral of medical qualities
equalled bj few mineral springs in
the world. The world only wants to
know of such places to make them
famous, and advertising alone will
make them known. Mr. Young is on
the right truck.
Watson'- Addition to Lakeview.
J. N. Watson bun bad bis IlO-acre
track adjoining Lakeview on tho west
flatted into town lots and streets. Mr.
Watson purchased this tract of laud
from M. T. Walters some mouths ugo.
Ho was oll'trod a considerable advance
for his bargain shortly after receiving
the deed, but refused to 6ell it in a
body. He had decided to muke a
residence district in thut section of
tho city, und no better location could
have beeu selected.
The ground is level, tbe soil is Hue
and shrubbery will grow there very
rapidly. Ouo cau hardly realize the
short time necessary to transform a
bare plat of ground into a beautiful
home with stuule trees, rose bushes,
lawn und flower beds.
.Some of the most beautiful homes iu
Lakeview have beeu male ulmost
while neighbor's bucks have been
turned. Residents of Lakeview hardly
kuow tho towu wbeu they take their
Sunday evening strolls through tho
rosldouco district, so rapid is the
growth and improvement.
Looking at Road Orant.
Mr. G. P. and J. E. Maitin, of Miu
ueupolis, spent several daya iu Lake
view tho past week looking over the
couutry with a view to investing here.
They were vory much impressed with
the outlook for Lake county.
The geutlemeu, iu company with V.
II. Shirk, aro out uow looking over
the Road Laud grunt, with a view to
buying the same. They are the geutle
meu mentioned iu The Examiner last
week.
MAYOR SCHMITZ

Highest Court, and will be
Candidate for Re-election
Jud;re Dunon pronounced eeuteuce
on Eugene K. Schmitz Saturday July
0th. Hefore sentencing tbe convicted
mayor of San Francisco, tbe presid
ing Judge undertook to administer a
lecture. He was repeatedly interrupt
ed both by Schmjtz BDd his council,
who objected to a lecture, demanding
that sentence Le passed immediatly.
Scbmitz said be- did not want to be
lectured in tbe presence of tbe news
paper men, who were taking notes nnd
would publish all that was said.
Jud;:e Dunne, Lowever, rnauaged to
silence tbe attorney for Schmitz by
threatening to eend him to jail for
disturbing the proceedings, and
amidst the protests of tbe convicted
mayor delivered a cutting reprimand
before announcing that Schmitz was
sentenced to five years in tbe State
penitentiary at San Quiutnn.
Schmitz made "a statement to the
newspaper reporters after receiv
ing sentence that be would fight the
case step by step, to tbe highest
court, and that he would be a candi
date for re-election to the mayoralty
of Saa Francisco this" fall. ,.
T5 Land Owners' Fauttt.
I- TV II.-?V'.vcn, diTector' of the re
clamation service, says tbe reason
I Oregon gets no more of ihe reclama
tion fund expended in the state is
owing to the unw illingness of the land
owners of this state to divide up their
holdings and sell it out in small tiacts.
Oregon donates more to the reclama
tion fund than any other state, and is
getting less of the money expended
within tbe state. It is a known fact
that Oregon lauds are mostly in tbe
! hands of large owners, and it is also
known that theso large owners aie ad
verse to selling all their lands except
a small tract, say of 10 to 100 acres,
and be compelled to farm these small
tracts upon scientific plans. It is not
the purpose of tbe government to ir
rigate the aiid lauds of any state for
the enrichment cf a few, but to mako
mere homes, uud the government will
never irrigate the lands until the peo
ple who own large tracts ij districts
where feasible porjects exist show a
w illingness to divide up tneir hold
ings. Mr. Neweli says:
"All the commercial (boost) (push)
clubs or development leagues in tbe
state may exploit the glories of Ore
gon til) the crack of doom, but they
will not be able to advance the inter
ests of the state us re p idly ns they
might be until the private laud-holder
changes his point of view".
Voice of the Sheepherders.
July 14, 1007.
After reading the Forestry report we
beg to be allowed space to say a few
woids, and ask that tho same bo pub
lished. We will admit that wo sheep
herders are not as bright as some peo
ple, but we do not thuuk the ranger
to take tho trouble to publish our. ig
norance. We do not think that all
the forest fires should be layed to the
sheepherders, as there were forest
fires before the herders ever inhabited
this country, and also there are flrea
where uo herders roam. We would be
much obliged to Mr. Nelf, to be a lit
tle less partial, and as to the cause of
the feed being better, we say that we
think the storm wo have hud bad
more to do with it thau the reserve,
und the Coyotes are just us bad as
they ever were; the forest reserve
has not got rid of any of them, aud
we would advise the ruuger to carry
a ritle aud kill them otf if he cxpettd
to protect the forest front tires in that
way.
