HOW THINGS GROW AT SILVER LAKE Views of Industrial Scenes In Northern Lake Received A number of views giving one an idea of Silver Lake and vicinity have been received by Hon. A. W. Orton from F. M. Chrisman. There are two threshing scenes besides several of grain fields, which proves conclusively thst grain is grown successfully in that section. Views of the Pcblic School.. Odd Mlows hall and Leader building are also included, which shows the class of buildings to be good and substantial. One view, bearing the legend "S. A. Lester s Girden." showing a remark able growth of vegetation leads one to believe that Sam had someone working for him previous to the time the pic ture waa taken. Mr. Orton will have the views placed in a conspicuous place, where thev will attract much attention and give the stranger an idea of what is doing in the northern part of the countv.
