acres of excellent soil that now iie idle

in Idaho, Colorado, Washington, and

after a load of homeseekers to
on some of the rich agricultural lands
in the northern part of Warner valley
where Messrs. Coggburn and Sanford
have located a number of settlers the
past summer, and have promise of
placing several hundred more next
summer. There is a large body of
the richest land that ever laid out of
doors lying idle and unoccupied to
day, but which will be taken up and
farmed before another two 'years roll
around. There is going to be a
great rush for these lands next year,
as the value of such lands is becoming
known. And people all over the
county are learning that Lake county
possesses a larger amount of them
than nearly any other county in the
West. The land is almost as level as
a iloor tor nines ana miles.
The country is covered with a
thrifty growth of sagebrush, and in
several places natural blue joiot
grass which grows thirty inches high.
This countiy will some day look
like the vast wheat fields of the Sacra
mento valley, only there will be- no
droughts, as they have never been
known in Lake county.

Cheapest to Build of any of the
Transcontinental Line.- One
Tenth per cent Grade.
I The large company of railroad sur
j veyors employed between Attorns and.
j Lakeview completed their wor to this
pla"e Friday and the men were all dis
charged. The line was ruu up to the
depot site of the X. C. O. Ry. and the
last peg was driven. The engineer
says that a one-tenth grade was es
tablished from the Oregon Short Line'
.to Alturas, the most difficult portion
of the route being through the Pit
River canyon north of Alturas. This
is the easiest by all odds of all the
; great trans-continental lines, aud the
I most practical ar.d least expensive.
I The engineers say it will be built
i . ,
: within the next five years. They also
say that this line will be the first of
all the croiected lines to be com Dieted.
Some doubt has been expreused re
garding the completion of the road in
the near future because of the recent
money panic. That, however, will

The route from Alturas to the valley
of the Sacramento is still a matter of
doubt and can only be determined
when the surveys and estimates are
completed. One route leada up the
north fork of Fit river, paralleling the
X. C. O. to Madeline. From there it
goes by way of Eagle Lake, Deer
Creek Pass and on down to Oroville.
The other follows down the main Pit
to Redding or vicinity. itoja&
