PAISLEY AKD SUMMER LAKE
Tbe announcement tbat beginning
wild July Sol Chandler for tbe oext
four years will carry the mail between
LaKeview and Paisley brines to light
a longstanding feud between Crooked
Creek and Clover Flat over the de
livery of tbe rural mail.
It looks at) if Crooked Creek baa
won, or rather its offspring. Valley
Falls. 1b this tbe climax of the etory
or is it but an incidert by the way?
1-t anybody goiiug to quit and te
good for tbe next four years, or will
tbe Bgbt still go on?
The fact tbat Chandler bad secured
tbe contract would indicate tbat tbe
mail route is to be changed by way of
Valley Falls and that w. ;a Bryan
wbo for twelve long years bas carried
tbe mail over tbe u.ountain as 10 be
left ont in tbe cold with a dinner sta
tion in Clover Flat and no travel.
Some time ago a pe'ition was circu
lated by Valley Falls to have the
route changed to accomodate that fu
ture metropolis. It wa nuaerously
sigaed in Lakeview before Clover
Flft became wiaa to tbe contemplated
raid. Then Bryan circulated a rr
monetrance and Bent it in bot baste
to Washington. He bad Postmaster
Miller of Lakeview to certify that
there was no county road by tbe Liar
rowj on ibe Valley Falls route and
tbat for tbe present Eeemed to Lave
cooked tbe letter's gooee.
Then Sol Chandler wbo owns tbe
eld Rebart ranch of 2,2"0 acres Live
miles eoutb of Valley Falls aud con
templates subdividing it stole a
march on tbe Clover Flatters by un
derbidding Bryan for tbe mail con
Tbe trouble commenced tbree years
ago. In tbe fall of 13U7 tbe Crooned '.
Creek road got so bad that Bryau re- I
fused to travel it nntil it was tlMd. '
For six wet-ks be went over tne old ;
mountain road and ('rooked Creek 1
was without iur.il. Chandler put in a
a guo I tized kick over tbe alleged de- ,
liuquency ot the contractor. It is!
said he threatened to have Biyau
prosecuted aud bis pay stopped, j
Chandler wrote to Washington that;
h bad himself hauler! forty hundred i
over the Crooked road with four j
corse- and that Bryan was only bluff -1
ioii Bryan came beak with tbe state-1
ment that the rjad r jai commQcced
wbete it left Crookei Creek to cross
tbe mountain and that Chandler with;
hie forty hundred and four horses
bad nevei been over it. j
At any rate Bryan won out aud be ;
wasn't prosecuted nor was be tiued.
The Crooked Creek road was re
paired before tbe inhabitants of tbe
valle) again received a daily mail.
Uuce siuc tbat time bar the
thoi otigbfaie become unruly aud
agalu Bryan abandoned tbe patrons
old Antlers post office to tbelr tate
It looked to Crooked Creek as if
Bryau thought ha bad a ciucb and
could ueinand a macadamized pike
but a day of reckouiug came for
Crookd Crek aid now Sol Chandler
is the hero of the hour Witb bis
tweut. thousand acres of laud in
Lake county be could afford to put iu
bid tbat Bryan couldu't meet for tbe
sake of baviug tbe mail go by way of
Val'ey Falls. It is expected tbat be
will put on an automobile and make
a round tri" by way of Valley Falls
in a day. Tbe fttuall obstacles at tbe
narrows tbat caused tbe delay can
easily be removed by an or ic from
tbtj county court. It is much feared
tbat Valley Falls intends to retaliate
and give Clover Flat a taste of what
it aiexns to live on a dry trail
However, Abaz Washington Bryan,
relative of the peerless ill lam Jeq
uiuk'8 Bryan, has a ranch aud stock
and a drove of turkeys and two Que
unmarried daughters who are already
begiuing to deplore the fact that they
may die old maids, though still in
short dres-es, aud he isn't broke yet
by any means.
The change will work a barlsbip
on old mm Moss, William Holder,
V. H. F.oush aud tbe rest of tbe thir
teen fmailies on the Clover Flat road
but they can console tbemseJves with
the knowledge tbat it ivoul.i be only
a matter of two years anyway until
the route would be abandoned when
Southern Pacific trains gets 10 run
ning on the (iooi-o Lake Southern.

The Home of Good Values
to the actual bottom of every bargain and you will
find there is no economy-no real money saving in
purchising cheap materials' Every commodity has
its own standard value and when you find prices,
represented as bargains that falls below that stand
ard commodity price, you get shoddy materials that
would be dear at half the price.
There is little if any difference in buving of largo
stores. Where the difference really lies is in secur
ing control of a certain lino of high grade materials
for the same price as shoddy materials. On that
point we claim superiority for
Hawkin's I Smith's hams and bacons
We give on these maximum values for the same
prices you would pay for meats not so good. Wo
have the exclusive sales of these two lines which you
all know cannot be equalled in town and wo will
therefore only say: THEY WON'T LAST LONG.

Grows Fine Potatoes
I J C. Oliver of the West Side has
experimented witb tbe ordinary farm'
ciopa there without irrigating and
finds tbat he has line success with
aloiost everything that be has tried,
.especially iu grow ing alfalfa, wheat
aud potatoes. .Mr. Oliier's ranch
! near l)rews Creek is a fair sample cf
! t fie ranches iu the valley and it the
-Lantern, man c aid see the soil and :
compare it with what he is in the
habit of trying to cultivate "Hack
. Last", he would wuuder why uo one
had ever told at. out this country be
fore. Mr. Oliver finds that lie has hud
excellent success grow ing Blue Cen
i tenlal, White Centeuial, Karly Ohio
j and Stray Beauty potatoes w hich he
thinks are t' e best vareities adoptwl
'to his soil io tti's climate. In grow
i'ig alfalfa he has tried seeding heavily
! but Mods that from six to eveu
; pounds to the acre on nnirrigated
. liind is productive of the greatest r?
suits. Th'sJcoHipared to the twenty j
pounds ttvit is usd iu sumo places
is quite ao item and there is an in-j
crease in tbe yield with the lessened
use iu the seed. .
