XXXIII STEAM LAUNDRY TO START JOT WEEK Long-felt Want Will Soon Lighten Labors of Houtowlfo Lakeview Is toon to hsve steem laundry In full ooerstion. Under the management of Robert ltotrtaon. lata of Gray's Harbor.

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. IN LAKE COUNTY 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 ont. He him best 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. MAIL SCHEDULE IN DANGERJFGHANGE 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.

Guyot Causes Denver People to Sit Up and Take Notice Positive That the Camp Will Prove Equal of Cripple Creek and Shows Similarity Between the Two Big Operators Quietly Getting In That the Hoac Mining Diatrict ia attracting much attention In the min ing world is attested bv the following from the Dailv Mining Record, of Den ver. Colo., orobablv tbe leading paper of the United States devoted to tbe mining industry : A new gold camp in tbe United btatea hss been fervently wished for. bv many who appreciate that aueb a development invariably occurs at times when business and industrial conditions need an optimistic stimulant of a sub stantial character and a new Ameri can gold camo la uje. Napoleon E. Guvot lava claim to bay ing tbe "hunch" when it cornea to pro claiming a big gold camo: be did thia in tbe case of Cripple Creek, when even tbe state papers were denouncing that great camo. and he called tbe turn long before Cripple Creek waa recognlxed by leading expert authori tlea of the world. And Mr. Guvot after whom Guvot hill of Crioole Creek ia named with 25 veara' additional experience. In min ing in different camoa of the country, plus bis magic "hunch." ia positive that there can be no mistake in the great claims which be makes for High Graoe the new gold eamo which he aava haa arrived. - High Grade baa been known and baa bad one boom, but it ia onlv recently that It haa really been "discovered." This baa occurred in the oase of manv other camoa. and the instance ia that Cripple Creek had rushes in 1881. 1884. and 1891. before the actually made good. cited 1873. camo Tboie wbo rU8hed int0 High Grade . . thm nrtl ,.,,. ,. u ,.. the exploitation of the greenhorn var iety.

L. Snelling, who a few dava since returned from a business trio to Tort land. a of the opinion that the next meeting of the State Development League which is to be beld in Lake view, should not taLe place before August. There are numerous reasons therefor, notably among which ia the fact that Portland business men will And it inconvenient to attend if the time is fixed at an earlier date. Manv eventa of importance will take place during June and Julv. not the least of which are the Rose Festival and Elk's convention, not to mention the big political oonventiona. Another very cogent reason ia that during August and September a much better Idea of what thia country pro duces can be gained than earlier in the season. Fruits, grains, grasses, veg etables, etc.. are .then maturing, and visitors will be able to see the wonder ful productiveness as well aa tbe per fect state attained bv the products of Lake county. ' What la probably the largeat mob!H-1 cation of troops over undertaken in this country in time of peace will be I that In the Klamath Basin the coming .. ..... j summer. Unltea states regulars ami, state militia forces are to be gathered i for maneuvers. The ground selected for the big camo is about 50 miles north of Klamath Falls, near the Klam ath Indian Reservation and convenient to tbe Crater Lake National Park and the Cascade Forest Reserve. for Mr. Guvot to discover the actual combination of the new treasure vault, and tbe real excitement haa yet to be exocriencend. Tbe location la in the extreme north east corner of California, close to (he Oregon state line and within seven miles of Nevada. Tbe recently con structed N.-C.-O. railway la within aix milea of tbe camo. the shinning point being Kew Fine Creek. It ia stated that branch line right into the center of tbe camo could be constructed at a coat of onlv 1250.000. Mount Bidwell towers aa a landmark near tbe camo, as doea Mount Pisgab at Cripple Creek, and tbe town of Fort Bidwell baa been the headauartere for tbe mining operators of the district. Bv some tbe camo haa been known aa Fort Bidwell. bv others aa Modoc, but . it baa been decided to christen it High Grade, and it is probable that a town 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 three milea bv one and one bait milea. Some properties are now being oper ated, more extensive work ia planned vet for the winter season, but during tbe coming vear High Grade baa fur nished aome data relative to tbe show- intra which have been made, the work already accomplished, and that planned. The Sunshine mine to dabs baa been the moat sensational performer. For merlv the work bad consisted of driving a 200 foot tunnel, in which the vein widned from 4 to 12 inches, with values carrving from $100 to 1300 to tbe ton. But a remarkable development baa aince occurred. OuiilinuuU on paice 8 WORLD IS BRIGHT UP PAISLEY WAY Farmers are Plowing and Townspeople Plant ing Gardens 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.

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. N.-G.-0. ROADBED BECOMING SOFT 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 . in tact all sorts oi literature, and one can hardly fail to be Interested, so that one visit is pretty sure to create a de sire for another, until the habit is formed. Uo to the library If vou have any desire whatever to become learned . Tbe steambeating plant at the High School house haa been completed suffi ciently to permit the steam to te turn ed in'o the pipes for the beating and drvlng of the rooms on the third floor this afternoon. Thia means that the walls will be dry enough in a few davs to allow the plastering to be fin ished, so that the painting and carpen ter work can also be finished on that floor, ' ; CHEWAUl'AN STATE BAN KATPAI S LE1T Bend Capitalists Bank Their Faith In Neigh boring Town Tbe Cbewaucan State Bank, to Let- . located at Paisley, bas filed articles of '' incorporation with County Clerk Payne, tbe capital stock being $15. 000.
