a blinding flash of lightning, waa to

possible to save about half of the

tibuse waa valued at $1800 and carried
$1000 Insurance. The furniture waa
not Insured. The lightning struck the
roof of the house and the whole struc

telephone service In the neighborhood
being put out of commission, a messen
ger was dispatched to the city to give
the alarm. The fire department re
sponded but was powerless to cope
with the flames and directed its atten

In the meantime, neighbors of the
Hileys succeeded in carrying out alout
half of the household furnishings
which were later carried to the Dabney
and Schooler homea.
"S. II. Riley, owner of the proerty

Mrs. Bessie R. Lues, another daugh

SOON AT DAVIS CREEK
But Two Short Stretches
Grading Remain South
of That Place
J. P. Hanson, superintendent of con
struction of the N.-C.-O. was in town
yesterday, and to an Examiner repre
sentative stated that the rails are now
being laid in Goose Lake Valley, and
that within a few days construction
trains'would Ikj operating as far north
as Davis Creek. There are but two
half-mile stretches of grade to be
thrown up south of that place and with
the force now at work they should tie
completed very shortly.
Mr. Hanson stated that Maney Bros,
now have a force working north of
Willow Ranch, and that excellent pro
gress is being made all along the line.
Last Thursday afternoon a lively
runaway occured at the corner of Slash
and Main streets when a team belong

became frightened and started on a
dead run up Main street. When the
McShane residence was reached they
t urncd and started back down the
street, but were stopped before they
proceeded any great distance. Fortu
nately no one was injured and a re
markalle feature is that with the nu
merous turns made, etc., neither horses
nor wagon were in the least damaged.

SEASON IS OVER
Hut One Case Reported
EXPERTS STILL BAFFLED
Unable toObtaln Any Clue, Owing
to Excellent Range Con
ditions ThU Year
Doctor C. D. Marsh, the physiologist
who was detailed here from Washing
Urn to work tn connection with the
Forest Service with a view towards de
termining the causes of so many sheep
dying each year. Sunday morning left
for Boulder, Colorado, where he ex
pects rti be stationed for a short time.
While here Doctor Marsh had but little
opportunity to make investigations
nlong the lines mentioned as but one
case of sheep poisoning, that of Ben
Daly, who lost ten head, has been re
ported so far this season, and the sheep
in question had been dead at least ten
days before the facts became known.
The cause of death in this instance
was undoubtedly due to poisonous
One reason given by the sheep men
as to the small loss among their stock
this season is that the feed both on the
desert and summer ranges is so plenti
ful that the stock simply nibble ofT the
tops of the grasses and do not pull the
plants up by the roots. It is in the
roots that the damage lies. Another
reason is that many of the plants eaten
by the sheep during the dry seasons
when vegetable matter is rather scarce
are now passed over untouched.
Mr. W. W. Eggleston, of the
Bureau of Plant Industry, is still sta
tioned in these parts being now in the
Thomas Creek country. He will pro
bably be located here until about the
first of July, at which time he expects
to leave for Mineral. California, in the
Lassen Forest, on work similar to that
which he has undertaken while here.
BIG TIME NFXT
Local A.O.U.W. Lodge will
Have a Big Class
On July 6, Lakeside Lodge No. Ill,
A. O. U. W., will hold a big class in
tiation in the Masonic Hall. There is
going to be something doing all the
time that evening, and it is a guaran
tee that no one will be disappointed.
Owing to the large number of appli
cations handed in the fireworks will be
touched off early, and the animals will
not be given anything to eat for two
days previous, so that they will not he

Ali members are requested to be , on
hand at 7:3o p. m. sharp, to dispose of
the business early, so that the degree
work can te put on in proper shape.
The residents of Lakeview are com

offers the best protection there is, be
cause they have a guaranteed rate, and

insurance value with it, the same as
the best old line companies, only a
great deal cheaper. You are not con

It is an Oregon institution, under the
control of the State of Oregon, and its

The A. O. U. W. has been in Lake

If there are any doubters who believe
that small garden truck cannot be

during the winter, from which he rais

earlier than is usual hereabouts. Now
he has given up the hotbeds and i us

Bliss Boys Injured
Chcwaucan Press: While playing
with twosmokeless powder shotgun
shells, two sons of Fred Bliss. Joe and
Pearl, met with an accident that may
cause each of them to lose the sight of
one eye. Not knowing the danger they
were running, they touched a match
to one of the shells, which exploded,
burning their faces severely and tem
porarily bilnding their right eyes. Dr.
William was near at hand, fortunately,
and he hurried over to lend his assist

possibly permanently, but the doctor

Arid now Medford wants to follow
the example set by Bend and cultivate
the acquaintance of Lake county. The
announcement coming from there is to
the effect that the Commercial Club is
preparing to run an excursion to North
ern California 'towns. Klamath Falls
and Lakeview in July. In connection
therewith the Medford Sun says :
"A four-day business excursion
through Southern Oregon is being
planned by Secretary Boos of the com-
merical club, to be held during the
middle of July.
"If the venture meets with the
approval of local business men, a
special train will be secured, with a
Pullman, diner, etc.. and the trip ad
vertised through the districts to be
"Ashland. Hornbrook. Montague,
Yreka. Weed. Mount Hebron. Dorris,
Klamath Falls and Lakeview are the
places planned on the itinerary, and
stops from three to twenty-four hours
will probably be made.
"We want to make this a get-together
trip for all the towns of South
ern Oreogn," said Mr. Boos yesterday.
"Medford should get in closer touch
with the business men of the district
through which this city is destined to
be the distributing point. There is
no better stimulus to commerce than
friendship and acquaintance. More
over. Medford has grown so rapidly
during the past few years that there
are many merchants here who scarcely
know their brother dealers. This trip
would make closer friends of the
business men and would be of lasting
benefit as far as the trade relations
with other towns in this part of the
state are concerned. The only way to
know conditions in other parts of the
state is to know the people and the
Signboards For Forest
A number of signs are now being

when completed are to be posted along
the various roads throughout the For

12 inches wide by 33 inches long, with
white back ground and black letters.
In addition to stating the various
towns in tne vicinity. Pearby ranches,
eto., the signs will give the approxi
mate distance to the places mentioned,
and will have the usual arrow pointing
the direction. Something of this kind
would be of much assistance to strang
