discovery of gold at New Piue Creek,
and McCleary A Schauera believing
that they have purchased the only real

entered suit to quiet title to same.
On Oct. 31st McCleary & Schauers

lie Careful of the Lamps.
The ut most euro ahould ha taken
during tho time tho town is without
electric lights, and lamps have to be
used. It is ho easy aomet imea to over
turn a lamp, especially where largo
crowds gather in one place for enter
tainment etc. Wherever a gathering
ia held caro tdinuld be taken that the
exits t)t the building aro uot blocked,
or tho lamps disturbed in any way.
At the Opera House there ia ade
quate exits for any emergency, ifjtliey
are uot blockaded in decorating the
hall, or otherw ise. To attach w ires to
the lamps or the rods upon which
they are hung, and let the wires ex
tend within reach of the crowd, is al
so unsafe, and should be avoided.
ThcfHo precautionary remarks are un
solicited by the public, but might be
Stores Close at 5:30.
The merchants of Lakeview held a

necessary by he scarcity of coal oil.
The stores will also be closed on Sun
days, all day. During Ohristams week
the stores will be kept opeueveuiug8.

of this place. The Examiner, with
a host of friends here, wish the hap

J. Cal. Eubanks and F. P. Light
met with an accident ono evening last

stage was coming up a bill this side
of the Wells ranch, when one of the

Eubauks' trunks were on the hind end
of the rig, and being heavy, pulled
the wagon over. Light was bruised
up a little, and Mr. Eubanks' ankle
was sprained quite severely. The ao

the horses were going at a very slow
