serve strip for railroad purposes to the
city limits in a straight line to the de
pot site offered by Mr. Drenkel, where
the survey terminates.
The site selected is on the line along
the west side of section 15, which is
also the west line of the city limits.
Itis proposed to have the railroad come
in on the section line, which is some
SQP feet west of the line surveyed by
Mr. Oliver. Physical conditions of the
two routes are the same, as viewed by
the ordinary layman, but their appear
ance to Chief Engineer Oliver may be
On more than one occasion Mr. Oli
ver expressed bis preference for the
Drenkel site, while General Manager
Dunaway is of a like opinion, although
he publicly stated in effect that any
selection that might be made by the
people of Lakeview would be satisfac
tory with him.
The right of way problem seems to
be more serious, however, inasmuch as
the route selected by Mr. Oliver passes
diagonally through several farms and
the resulting damages will necessarily
amount to no inconsiderable sum.
Nevertheless the farmers are inclined
to be reasonaDle, appreciating the faot
that the coming of the railroad means
much for the whole country, and it is
certain that no trouble will be exper
ienced in securing rights of way. pro
viding the question is put in a straight
forward business manner.
The hot springs are becoming very
popular with a certain class of people
who are by no means faddists. S. O.
Cressler. C. U. Snider, nick J. Wilcox
and others equally prominent being in
cluded in the list. The proper method
of taking treatment is to arise at 4 :30
a. m. and then crank an auto for 10 or
15 minutes, and when the thing finally
starts get to the baths as quickly as
possible. Once there you must drink
all the water possible, and in no case
less than one quart. One member of
the party who has an abnormal thirst is
said to.be able to gulp down nearly a
gallon of the hot water as it rushes
from Mother Earth. Others are mak
ing every effort to expand their ab
sorptive organs, but the quart seems
to be about the limit of mot-t of them.
Tne rejuvenating powers of the
waters are simply wonderful, accord
ing to Mr. Snider, he having discarded
his cane and is now of a much more
youthful appearance than when he
commenced the treatment. However,
the hour at which it is necessary to
take the treatment in order to secure
results is likely to prove a bar to its
ever becoming very popular.
William Edmondson, who several
weeks ago presented Eldon Woodcock
with an E. M. F. auto in recognition
of many kindnesses shown during his
illness and who later suddenly disap
peared, was last week found in Al
turas. Mr. Woodcock . made the trip
down there and was informed by
Edmondson that he had pratically no
money, and was unable to pay for the
auto he had given. It is reported that
Edmondson is now confined in the hos
pital at that place. He stated that on
the Monday night he disappeared, he
walked as far as Funk's Point and
there got on the southern stage. On
reaching Alturas he was unable to
proceed farther owing to lack of neces
The Oregonian : The muckraking
hysteria has run it course through the
magazines who nowadays reads
mucbraking magazine? but it has
violently captured the lower house of
Congress. The house is bent on in
vestigation. Having nothing else to
do but fight the heat and wait drearily
on the Senate, it has been seized with
a desire to investigate everybody and
everything. The other day it was
Controller Bay; now it is Attorney
General Wickersham. Next week it
may be the Supreme Court which
enunciated the famous "rule of rea
son" and thus failed to drive Standard
Oil into the sea.
The Controller Bay episode will soon
cease to be a sensation, unless indeed
it should take a new turn by which the
muckrakers may be muckraked, which
is likely enough. It is not probable
that Attorney General Wickersham
will be impeached, or that the charges
against him of helping the dreaded
Guggenheims by allowing certain cases
to lapse through application of the
statute of limitations, will be vigorous
ly, pressed, since their sponsor is the
other Wickersham who is the delegate
from Alaska that tried for a fat job
as the Senate Counsel of the abhorred

Midsummer madness has seized the

but it is presumed that if he intended
putting on an exclusive passenger ser
vice he would have so stated. The
time of arrival at Davis Creek will
probably be about 11 p. m., as under
the present schedule trains are due at
Alturas at 9 :50 p.m. The time of de
parture from Davis Creek will be
about 4 a. m., an hour earlier than the
leaving time at Alturas.
Removing the terminus from Alturas
to Davis Creek will reduce the stage
ride to Lakeview from 60 to 35 miles,
with a corresponding reduction in the
freight haul. What the change in
freight rates will be is an unknbwn
quantity as no announcement has been
made as to what rates would be put
The mail schedule has not as yet
been arranged, although the stage com
pany has forwarded a request to the
Department that the leaving time at
Altruas be fixed at 6:30 a. m. and 9:30
at Lakeview and the running time be
tween the two places be eight hours.
Such a schedule would put the mail
into Lakeview shortly after noon, as
the full time would not be required to
make the drive undr ordinary circum-tances.
The stage company will also inagu-i
rate a regular schedule for its automo
biles, and the'service will be all that
could be desired by even the most

We have two pretty, gritty little
German girls who have taken home
