Mr. Burns had juat read the reoort

Too Much Firewater In a
Dry Precinct Causes
tho Tragedy
Charged with tho killing of his
squaw nt Adel. Saturday night. Bige
Archie, a I'iute brave is in the eustodv
of Sheriff Snider after a chaae in
which tho man waa finally captured at
Fort Hidwcl'. The squaw 'a head was
crushed with a blunt instrument and
the evidence given at the cororner'i
inquest holt! before Mr. Wallace and
Assistant DiHlrlct Attorney John
Venator, show thut tho illicit selling
of "Firewater" waa tiio cause of this
murder in width tho ucts of some
voung boy are mixed uu in the au"air.
The murderer ia tho couhIii of "Indian
John" the aged leader of tho local
Fiutes. who sava thnt ho is a "Hud"
Indian. TIiIm make tho third Indian
that has been killed in Warner Vallev
recently, two of whom were buck and
the mahala mentioned.
Flour Mill for Paisley
George Conn, tho Paisley merchant
a going to start his fine Hour mill
ahortly and hn ndvertied for grain to
supply the mill. This ia one of tho
finest plunta of its kind to be found
anywhere and the grade of Hour that
it turns out ia in keeping with that
produced throughout the country.
The equipment U of the beat and there
are over 2.000 yards of bolting alone In
tho mill. The power la supplied bv the
ditch that takes water from the Che
wuucuii iitovu tho town of Paisley and
U sufficient to run an eleetrio line from
PaiBlev to Lakeview if it were proper
ly harncHHtid. Thu plunt will handle a
largely increased yield of Kruin this
year and Paisley people a well as
those in the valley i.ear will have the
best home grown product Instead of
having flour shipped in.
Where Will tho Depot Be?
A great many of ua are the owner
of Iota In various parts of thia beauti
ful city of ours, which fact rarrie
with It a certain amount of pride, etc..
eet. There ia one thing bothering un.
however, and that is the location of
the railroad deoot. Iet ua pray that,
"the power that be." maka their de
cision on thia Important matter
oromntly and permanently, so that
"ua" proocrty ownera may know once
and for all whether we are to be
favored with railroad running past
our back gate, front door. ect.
A Qood Example
If there la one place in town that
we ean point to with pride, and which
to our mind most resemble the "mot
less" town we have all read about, it
I the grounds altout the Court House.

ods of Working
The Examiner acknowledge the re
ceipt of some tine an m tiles of grain
Brown on the old Chaa. Morris place
on tue West Side, by the prevent
owner J. II. Carey. The grain la to
be seen at tne Examiner office and
consists of oats, wheat and barlcv,
grown without irriration. The wheat
will go between thirty and forty
bushela to the acre and the bar lev will
do much better than forty bushels,
while the outs are as high aa a man's
shoulders. Mr. Carey la doing things
and his ranch shows it.
Fake Advertising:
The way that some firrna stoop to
advertise is to be noticed in aiy article
sent out in plate form bv an advertis
ing agency In ad vcrtising the Chalmers
Detroit car and W. It. Parker, of the
Remington Arms Co. The article
states the terrible time that the "dun-
man" and his car had in the dreary
wastes of Oregon wherein thev truvel-
od from "fifty to ninety miles over
barren sandy !eerta between water."
Such stuir is enough to dtagust a per
son acquainted with the tonography of
Oregon and who knows differently.
There ia no ulace in the state that a
man can travel fifty miles without
water. The "Gunboy" should have
a Lake County lad carry water for him
on foot the next time he cuts loose
from "Mamma."

"Goose Lake Valley ia a garden
spot" aaid J. W. Hunter, of Lake
view to a representative of the Exam
iner, "and I want you to come and
see eome of tho grain that la growing
here no thaf you can tell the people
about it." So the tnn was mado and
what a trio it waa. Through aome of
tho most tertle landa in the state,
many hundreds of acrea of whi:h are
in sage-brush, their owner not fully
appreciating the many advantage of
the aoil and climate that we have here.
On either side of acme of the finest
grain fields that it has ever been the
uleasure of the author to view, were
untiltcd acre of rich, alluvial soil
that ha been washed down from the
erosion of the hills through countless
ages, for the benefit of the men and
women that are going to make thia
section of Oregon "blossom aa the
roue." The aoil waa the same whether
the land wan tilled or virgin. The only
difference was that the hand of man
had performed the work of clearing
the land and placing it under hi com
mand so that the aoil. climate, mois
ture and sunshine could do the work
of making the aeed that waa planted,
produce a crop sufficiently remunera
tive to place the tiller In comoaritive
comfort. Is it doing thia? Well just
go out on the West Side right now
when vou can see the fields as thev are
when the harvest ia on; go into them
and see the well filled head of wheat.

mentioned deserve credit for their
masterful handling of the cane.
Davis Creek Views
Seagers have had aome fine panor

around all sides of beautiful Goose
Lake, thut are about the best that

the country. The sections around
Davis Creek and Lakeview are espec
ially line and worth seeing. The firm
intends to equip ail their salesmen
throughout the country with three of
these fine views and a book of photo
graphs, showing scenes around Davis
Creek. Thev are ulso going to mail

Cut Down the Weeds
The unsightly lot with their rank
growth ot weeds that are allowed to
go to aeed because of neglect, scatter
ed throughout the town, are not only a
detriment in a phvaical senae but add
to the burden the man that takes
pride in bia garden haa to carry. The
seeds that mature on the neglected
patches are allowed to re seed on an in-
duetnoua man' garden aa well aa the
ownera. thus working an injustice

nuisance that will be enforced one of

Many Ranchers in Valley
Desire Experiment
on Their Land
II Lakeview people do not take no
the offer of George Ede. the artesian
well driller to put down a well and
guarantee a flow of water in either the
High School grounds or in the City
Park adjoining, there are many
ranchers in Goose Lake Vallev that
will be glad to have wella driven at
the same offer. J. H. Carev; of the
West Side ia among those that is in
favor of having the well outfit cora-
l me nee operations at the earliest poe-
sible moment, while a number of
neighbors of Mr. Carev have also ex
pressed themselves in the same man
ner. Thev are willing to club together
and pay the $500 in case a flow is
struck or each will take a well under
the same terms. There seems to be no
doubt in Mr. Ede's mind regarding
rhie being an artesian well bann and
he is borne out in this theory bv the
Geological Survey Reports in Water
Suoolv Paoer No. 220. Halo the well
expert that is drilling at Summer Lake
sav that he believes that in addition
to the ordinary flowing well there ia a
hot flow from beneath this tart of the
valley. An artesian well in Lakeview
would be an asset to the town ard
valley that would be hard to duplicate
in money. .
Settlers From Wisconsin
During the past week or so quite a
contingent of young men from Wiscon-
ain points have arrived at Vallev Falls,
to locate and become permanent set
tlers of the Chewaucan vallev. They
are the right material, and just what
is needed in these parts to help build
ud the country. The writer returned
several davs back from the Silver Lake
country, incidentally passing through
the Chewaucan. and noticed many new
houses now under construction in ad
dition to those already erected. Good
croos are being raised there, and with
the extremely fertile soil throughout
the valley there is no doubt but what
we mav expect in a few years to look
forward to that valley as a rival to our
"Golden Goose Lake ' country.
Successful Social
Something very unique in the way of
a young peonlo'a social was held Tues
day evening at the Masonic hall, under
the direction of Mr. O. E. Werner.
Printed tickets in the form of a long
railroud pass were issued to each of
those present, and as the ticket read
"Not valid unless signed by all pass
engers everyone was oonagea to se
cure the signature of his neighbor be
fore leaving. Sandwiches!, in the form
of railroad ties, were passed around.
coffee was served, and an altogether
pleasant sociable time was enjoyed by
all. . .-,

this part of the country where soil and
