Serious Accident Averted
What came very near being a aerl
oua accident occurred last Friday after
noon when Donald Metzker in company
with William Harvey were riding sad-
i die horse aouth of the new High School
buil'liig. At a point north of the N.
T. Corey residence the former'a horse
floundered in the mud and turned com
pletely over with the rider on ita back.
When the nimal finally regained its
feet, it started to buck vigorously and
young Metzker could not dislodge his
foot from the stirrup, clung desperate
ly to the saddle until the horse was
quieted down. Fortunately neither
ridornor auimal were injured, although
the former waa quite badly ahaken up.
Financial Condition Good
The official report of the County
Treasurer, which appcara in another
column, ahould put at rest the vicious
canard that has been floating about
which rumored that although there was
some 190,000 in the general fund of
the County, the taxes had been raised
Id the County unnecessarily, for rea
sons not apparent to the average clt'
sen. From the report ot thq auditing
committee whish exported the books of
the county two weeka ago, and. from
this report, any one can aee the safe
and economical manner in which the
affairs of the county are handled.

During her long residence in Lake
view she has given of her services
whenever she was needed and by ber
sympathetic nature haa endeared her

That she should thus be afflicted in ber 1

grief in the hearts of all. It ia feared
that her ailment will be permanent, ai-l

prove the case, and that with proper
treatment stie will regain ber reason
and return to Lakeview to spend the
remainder of ber life surrounded by
friends of former days.

Prices have ranged from 10 to 14 centa
for fine and from 15 to 17 1-2 cents for

the dealers believe the growers will
continue to sell and that many will not
wait for the regular sales days.
"Tbe heaviest buying to date haa
been done by J. P. Dufour of the La
