Long-felt Want Will Soon
Lighten Labors of
Lakeview Is toon to hsve steem
laundry In full ooerstion. Under the
management of Robert ltotrtaon. lata
of Gray's Harbor. Washington, the
machinery for thia new Institution U
being raoidlv assembled and out In
place, and, according to present ealcu
lationa. by Saturday weak the concern
will be In full operation.
The power for the concern? la to be
furnished hv a 30 horee oower boiler
and a 26 horse oower engine and an
electric dvnamo to suit. The boiler
and engine are now In place, aa are
moat of the machines for operating the
plant. Including a washing machine

several other Contrivances for handling
clothea in the proceia of the laundry
work. A very complete and effective
drying room la now almoit ready for
operation laekintr only the fan for the
drying process. The only machine not
vet reoelved from below la what la
known aa the mangier, and thia Is ex
pec ted to arrive aoon. When In opera
tion the manager expects to emoluv
force of twelve persona, most of whom
will be women and gtrla. To accommo
date these a room baa been sot apart.
with modern conveniences. A Part of
the machinery will be operated or heat
ed bv gaa. a machine for its manufac
ture being now In place.
The laundry la located at the east
end of Canvon street, where a building
some 50 feet square has been fitted uo
for this purpose. When completed It
will have been done at a cost of some
13.000. several local capitalists being
interested. Inasmuch as the concern ia
expected to advance along the linea of
the growth of the town. It is an estab
lishment of no small moment, aa it will
notnlv add a trifle to the working
force in the town, but will also add to
the convenience of life.
Mr. Robertson antictoatee doing no
email amount of work in his line in the
aeveral towns and villagea along the
line of the railroad south of this.
the aualitv of the work he is able to
turn out proves itself. It Is bv such
steps aa thia. email in the beginning
aa it may seem that the importance and
business of Lakeview ia to advance.
C. T. Wilson Believes Suc
cess Partly Due to Open
Alr Treatment
C. T. Wilson, who owns and manage
an extensive horae ranch ten miles
north, on bench lands, is in town for a
few dava. Mr. Wilson haa been un
usually auccosful in rearing colts, and
attributea it to hie methods of handl
ing them, of which he gave to the re
porter a very interesting account, many
of his facta being well worth recount
ing. He baa abtut 100 marea and
nearly aa manvcolta. He aava he never
works hla marea while in foal, and doea
not wean his colts till the spring fol
lowing their birth, but lets them run
out in paature throughout the summer
and winter. The result la that hla colta
never have distemper, and he haa not
lost one from this cause in veers, while
one of his neighbors, in particular,
lost thirteen colts last year from thia
cause and aeveral thia winter, cbieflv.
he thinka. because he weaned them in
the fall and took too good care of them
during the winter, that" is. he keot
them under shelter. He habitually
feeda bis mares and oolta all the good
hav they will eat and leta them run on
tha eection ot land be haa for a paa
ture. and if there comes a deep snow,
and they don t seem to want to move
about he mounts a saddle horse and
drives them out. Just to keeo them
well exercised. He doea all of his
neoessarv work with his geldings, and
if any of them are too mean or unrulv
to work he kills them and feeds their
bodies to his hogs. His idea ia that if
an animal is to mean to work , It isn't
worth keeping, and be would not sell
suob an animal. He has read many
pooka relating to the rearing of colts,
but no method he baa found baa given
a plan that will (It thia country,
thinka his success haa warranted
to believe that bla plan Is the
Come Through
The fact will be remembered that
last fall the Examiner oubliehed the
dellnouer.t tax list for the county. It
seems atranre. but the tact appears that
not a aintle piece of that land was
sold under terma of that sale, the rea
son being that the people owning the
landa have been pavlna uo to each an
exent that the sheriff perf erred wait
ing awhile on those vet delinauent.
rather than take the trouble to make
out certifies tes of purchase and the
experiment haa proven the wisdom of
bis course, aa the holders of the lands
have ao generally been paving uo their
taxea that it would have been unwise
to add the expense of a aale.
Cheerful Weather
These be brlaht, cheerful winter dava
one la almoat tempted to aay soring
dava, for the sun comes out so cheerful
and the weather ia so mild that one can
not belo thinking of the springtime.
And this condition baa existed contin
uously for the oast two or three weeks
even while the country east of the
Rockies waa beld fast bv the grip of
the frost king and was suffering un
named horrors from the cold. Hurelv
thia la an attractive climate we live in.
Misconception of Depart
mental Orders Reason
of Splendid Service
A mliconceotlon of orders from tbe
Poatofttce Department aeema to oe
responsible for the excellent mail faci
lities we bave been enjoying aince
trains have been running into Lake-
view. On the other band the people ,
living along the etage road bave tbe
ssme condition to blame for having tha
rural delivery Discontinued, a. near
as can now be learned it would appear
that the etage aerv
Ice between Lake-'
view and Davia Creek haa never been
odered discontinued, but that a special
locked-pouoh service between Alturas
and Lakeview had been ordered in ad
dition to the stage service. The Depart
ment haa just learned of the manner in
which tbe mail service is being con
ducted, and it is feared that orders
will soon be received establishing the
old order of things,
Contracto Cory ibas been carrving
the maila between the railroad atation
and postofflce at New Pine Creek and
also between the latter place and Wil
low Ranch, but he la expecting orders
to maintain the regular schedule which
waa in effect previous to the ' coraole
tlon of the railroad to Lakeview.
Efforts are now being made to have
the railioad mail aervlce continued, but
should it be found necessary to dis
continue the operation of traina on ac
count of a soft roadbed, aa stated else
where, we will sure be uo against the
real thing.

Another very cogent reason ia that

Bv some tbe camo haa been known aa

bearing that name will be among the
developments of tbe early future.
Tbe district Is ideally situated for
conomie operation: and while there are
heavy snows in the. winter, it is aaid
that the roads can, and will be kept
open after thia winter. The explored
area of tbe district ia now a matter of

Farmers are Plowing and
Townspeople Plant

G. C. Howell, of Paislev, was in town
yesterday on business. He reports that
the weather continues fine in the Che
waucan vallev, that farmers are not
only plowing, but that aome of the
towna people are making garden, while
the sun shines and it ia ao aoring-like
that no fire is needed in the house.
Thev have had no xero weather there
during tbe winter, and everything has
been lovely while tbe traditional goose
ia hanging on the lottleat pinnacle of
the neareat mountain range. It will
be observed that Mr. Howell la, not a
booster. If he were San Diego had
better emolov him.

Probably Not Luck
George Wingfield's luck still con
tinues with bim. A clipping from the
Nevada Free Press atates that "the
men working on the Rock creek claim
of the Success group, recently acquired
by Winefleld. who have been running
in on the ledge, cut into an ore chute
of picture rock that will go no into tbe
thousands. Thia baa been kept very
auiet. and the owners believe tbev have
an immense body of bleb grade ore.
"On the original Benane and Middle
ton lease, that was taken over bv Wing
field, when he bought the Success group
the workmen bsve cut into and have
run over 40 feet of ledge matter, but
bave not yet reached tbe pay ore."
Successful Meetings
Tbe revival meeting at tbe Metho
dist church, which began Sunday even
ing, bave been fairly well attended
every evening since, with results that
bave been oulte satisfactory to tbe
pastor and congregation. The sermons
of Rev. Wire have been argumentative,
dispassionate and convincing, rather
than florid and oratorical. The meet
ings will continue, except Saturday
evening, through the next week.
Wool Market Improving
Harrv Bailev. the wool merchant.
reports that the outlook for tbe wool
market for tbe coming vear abowa
signs of improvement over last year.
Not ao much wool will be carried over
tbia year as bave bean done during the
past two veara. end the report of the
tariff board is looked uoon as favor
able to a continuance of the protective
features of tbe tariff, this latter fact
has bad tbe effect ot bracing uo prices
of wool in tbe eastern markets.
Warm Weather and Rain
Combine to Beat Bal
lastlsgWork Our present excellent mail . facilities
are in danger of becoming sadly dis
rooted by existing weather conditiona.
This is owing to the fact that the new
ly constructed roadbed of the N.-C.-O.
ia becoming very soft, making it dan
geroua to operate traina over certain
low places. During the past month
every effort baa been made bv the con
struction department to get the road
ballasted at the earliest possible mo
ment, but tbe warm weather bas caus
ed tbe frost to leave the ground and
the rain of the oast few dava bas made
tbe roadbed exceedingly soft. Usually
at this time of vear the ground is fro
sen bard, and had that condition con
tinued this vear no trouble would bnve
been exorienced. for by the time the
frost usually leaves the ground the
track would bave been ballasted.
In order to expedite the ballasting
one steam ahovel outfit bas been remov
ed to tbe gravel bed down at tbe Pen
insula, some seven miles south of town,
which greatly shortens the hauL and
manv carloads of gravel are now being
dumped dailv upon tbe road bed.
Well Patronized
The public library ia being Quite well
patronized these da vs. but there ia atill
more room at the tables for more read
ers. It would not be a bad idea it the
librarian were to keeo 'm register of all
visitors, and make reports to the public
through the press every month, auch
a process might stimulate a still great
er use of the library and be the means
of bringing ita needs more freauentlv
to the public's attention. Tbe library
room is a pleasant olaoe in which to
pass an nour during an afternoon or
evening, even if one has no special ob
ject In view. There sre newspapers and
magazines into which one1 can glance,
or books of various character, into
which one can delve for more serious
facts or fancies.
There are books of
nisiorv. oiograonv, science, romance-
Ll.i l; i .

Tbe steambeating plant at the High
School house haa been completed suffi
