We once lived at 1'alxley, We liked
the town and like It yet. While there
we watched cl aely thu natural trend
of trade and growth. We found that
1'alHley wun. ao to npeuk, situated not
far from thu head of two utreamw, of
wealth prod uc I u forces, the one flow
IriK South into Lukeview, and the oth
r flowing North iuto Silver Lake.
And we found that outelile a circle of
very email diameter, everything which
oontriliutud to the Krowth of a town
flowed away from l'aieley. That
very uolp to the town froii Hourcee
outside this email circumference imiHt

of our life woikintf shoulder to shoul

tizens as evor devoted their lives to
the upliiilldhiK of a town, utriviuff to
reverse tlio Htrong tides ever flowing

Pulsley Is tlio center of a splendid
uomtiiunity, without natural ulliuuce
with outlying aids to het Krowth.
Lakeview Is the natural reservoir in
to which ull bt reams near it easily

and vigor of all surrounding neighbor

combinud with the alertness of Lake

doubtful if the question of removing

appears as if tLe clerk is required to
give 30 days' notice of the fact that

this of course cannot now be done.

i-old to Homebuilders
R. J. Martin, of the Oregon Valley
Land Co.. whom The Examiner men
tioned a few weeks ago as being then
on ills way to Lake county, arrived
here last week, after this paper had
gone to press. Mr. Martin is looking
over bis company's new possessions,
and be is more than pleased with
their bargain. He is interested la
the vegetable and fruit yield of this
county, and sees much in store for
the farmers if careful attention is
paid to starting orchard. The Ex
aminer published the terms opon
which this large body of land will be
put on the market by the Oregon
Valley Land Co. Farms of from ten
acres to one thousand acres will be
offered for sale, at not to exceed 200
for each farm, and a town lot ia an
addition to Lakeview is to be given
with each purchase. There are thou
sands of acres of this land that is the
very choicest land in this county,
some natural hay land, and soma as
fine, rich grain and fruit land as can
be found in any country. Tne cutting
up of this large tract of land, which
has. over since the settlement of this

much to the futnre of Lake county.
It has often been said that the peo
