Leaking Gasoline Becomes
Ignited and Causes
Carl Young, driver for the Southern
Oregon Auto Co. between here and
Klamath Falls, met1 with a peculiar
accident Tuesday when near Whiskey
creek. He was carrying a case of
gasoline on the trunk rack which had
evidently sprung a leak. The gasolene
spread over the rear part of the ma
chine and finally in some way became
ignited evidently from the exhaust.
The flames shot up but did not reach
the cana and Mr. Young succeeded in
detaching them from the burning ma
chine. He then drove hia car to a safe
distance and smothered the flames
On arrival here the car presented
a wrecked appearance, the rear and
one side of the car, aa well as the
cushions, having been greatly damaged
by the flames. However, the machin
ery was uninjured and the round trip
waa made on schedule time.

Removed A grain
William Wallace, the local confec
tioner, last week removed bia supplies
from the Moore building to the former
Board of Trade rooms. This is the
second time within a very few months
that Mr. Wallace baa been obliged to
remove hia goods to a new location.
He was formerly located in the store
now occupied by the Colorado Cafe and
was obligea to vacate when C. E.
Lonzway purchased the property. This
time be was obliged to remove owing
to the fact that F. Fetsch. the new
owner of the Moore building, expect
to open up a tailoring - shop in a few
days. Mr. Wallace ia no quitter, how

J. C. Oliver Grows Fine
Crops of Wheat, Rye
J. C. Oliver, the well known West
Side rancher, has on exhibit at Max
well's office rye that measures 6 feet 9
I inches tall, wheat 4 feet in height and
j alfalfa of the same length. All were
produced by dry farming methods and
the yield proimses to be exceptionally
good. To an Examiner representative
! Mr. Oliver atated that the wheat will
j produce not less than 30 bushels per
acre, the heads being exceptionally
long and well filled. The rye is being
cut for hay and it will probably go
close to Si tons to the acre. The alfal
fa is also a good crop and will yield
Mr. Oliver harrowed his grain crops
twice after they were up. and while it
made them look, sick for a time yet the
good results at this time make him a
firm believer in dry farming methods
of conserving moisture.
Hay is very plentiful thia year and
the prices will no doubt be much lower
than last aeason, when in some in
stances they reached the $20 murk.

Hill's East-and-West Line
Across State Still
That suspicion of a decision having
been reached by the Hill system to
build an east and west line across th
state of Oregon is really the force be
hind, the recent announcement of the
Harriman system to the effect that th
Southern Pacific is to build a line
from Eugene to Coos bay by way of
Florence, is the opinion in some rail
The fact that surveyors said to be
in the employ of Hill roads are inten
sely active in central Idaho mapping
out feasible routes for a crostt-the-tftate
line from a point in the vicinity of
Salmon City to Boise, through the
famous Long Valley, and the comple
tion of a survey trom Roseburg to Coos
bay by a company believed to be acting
for the Hill system, is taken as very
significant indications that an east to
west line cross the state is about to be
prosecuted by the Hill system. Such
a line would intersect the Oregon
Trunk line and give an outlet to im
mense areas now untouched by rail
roads in the heart of the state. It
would also give Coos bay direct con
nection with the northern tinea upon
the closing of a narrow gap between
Salmon river in Idaho, and some suit
able point in Montana.
