The board as a whole favored tbe re

to $r0 per acre, but Governor West
held $42.50 was sufficient to cover ex

was raised to $45. Thia reduction of
$5 per acre will save $60,000 for the

Judge Daly ia one of the greatest
boosters of good roads Southern Ore
gon has. He started a move early in
the. Spring for better roads
to make his eountv the pioneer
for road building in this part of the
state and as a result Lake county has
some of the best hiehwavs to be found
in the interior. Although his county
haa spent a large amount for road
building, be declares that the entire
people are back of him in his good
work and although expensive, much
good haa already been accomplished
and more ia due. He is enthusiastic
in the cause and compliments Judge
Worden and the county commissioners
of KIariath over the work that has
been done here along this line, but savs
he hope to have the two counties join
in closer touch bv still improving the
road between here and Lakeview bo
the .people will not have any kick
coming at the bumps and bad condi
tions that formerly existed. In fact
much has already been done to make
this road good the year round, but still
more can be accomplished toward this
end and more will be done with the
coming year. The judge is a member

LOW PRICES HOLD
IN MUTTON MARKET
Lambs Go at $2 to $2.35;
Weathers Bring $2.50
With beef soaring around the 9ie
mark it is much of a mystery why
mutton should be so low. Tbe first
sales reported locally are from $2 to
$2.35 for lambs delivered at the rail
road. Thus far but two sales are re
ported, the first being that of E.
Caseb-er io sold 2000 lambs to O.
T. McKendree. the price bsing $2.35
per head. The Iambs were extra good,
and Mr. McKendree paid the top price.
The other sale was made by Simon
Juanto to Geo. Swanston. who paid $2
each for 400 lambs.
These prices are extremely low as
compared with those of a year ago,
when tbe market onened at $3.25.
Yesterday Lou McCulley purchased
from Manuel Sanders about 3u00 twe
and three-vear-old weathers, the Dnc
being $2.50 per head. A vear ago the
