P. C. Coon and Jack Mil
ler Thrown From Wagon
Near Paisley
The following is fromjthe Chewaucan
Press In regard to the ocoident that
occurred near Paisley, a brief account
of which was in tact week' Examiner:
Monday P. C. Onon and Jack Miller
met with an accident on the road to
Littlo Chewuucun, whloh might have
proven fatal to both.
They were taking a load of supplies
to the round-up camp, and had juat
crossed the mountain and started down
on the other Bide when the team they
were driving hruke away and ran down
the taoiii f in "Ida. They left the road
and Bltfitud off through the mahogany,
Tne hill is v ry statu lit thia noint,
and Hi- . uui iX run far before
Coop bin' nior were both thrown

When Mint and A. E. Banis

scent, they found Coon lying in the
road and Miller sitting on the hillside
a few rods farther. Coon had evident
ly been nrsgged about 100 yard. Both
were In a semi-conscious condition and
badly bruised up.
Tna wagon was lying against a Juni
per tree on farther down the moun
tain, side up, with part of the wheels
entirely minting, and the team had con
tinued Its journey alone.
Klder and Banister loaded the crip
plea In their wagons and brought them
to I'alsley aa quickly as possible, ar
riving about three o'clock in the after
noon. Dr. Thayer was summoned at
once, and an examination revealed that
Coon had broken a bone In hi arm and
several lbs, beside several minor
bruise. Miller was but little more
fortunate, and received a dislocated
shoulder and a deep gash on the side of
hi head. Both at thin writing arc
pretty stiff and aoro, but a week or
two will probably see them well again.
Remains of Frank Bauers
Taken to AshlandE. H.
Loftus Moved Here
Last Sunday Undertaker Wallace &
Son went to Crane Lake and disinter
ered the remain of E. 11. Lofftus,
father of John, Henry and C. C. Loff-
tus, who had been buried there for
twelve years. '
The body of Frank Bauers, who died
about six months ago and was buried
in the I. U. O. F. Cemetery, Lakeview,
was taken up Monday and removed to
Ashland for reburial. Mr. Mary
Bauers and son Frank accompanied the

by way of Reno and Sacramento. The
casket containing the remains of Mr.
LorTtus wi reburied in the Bauers
grave Monday afternoon. Mr. E. H.
LofTtua waa the father of Mr. Baucs.
Some Plum Tree
Altura Plalndealer We visited New
Pine Creek last week and stopped at
the Bonner ranch on Sugar Hill to in
pect aa plum tree growing in the or
chard. The tree was planted many
years ago by the father of the Bonner
brothers and i a Wisconsin wild plum
tree. It la estimated that the tree bore
this year fully a ton of fruit and judg
ing by the number of boxes gsthered
and the amount still on the tree we
are satisfied the amount was not over
estimated. The fruit was sweet and
iuicv, and found ready sale. Now just
figure a little. A ton of fruit produced
on one tree, what would an acre pro
duce? It will give one an idea of the
value of fruit lands, once we have a
railroad to carry fruit to market.
Eugene Baylias and Miss Mina Smith,
of Bly, were last Friday evening unit
ed in marriage by Kev. Melville T.
Wire at the Green Garden Houbc. Mr.
Bavliaa came to Bly quite recently,
while the bride has lived there for some
time. They left on the western stage
ard will probably make their home at
lily. The Examiner joins their friends
in extending congratulations.

Sixty Cars of Sheep Will Be Shipped Out of
Lakeview This Month New Rate
Same as From Klamath Falls
The following letter from H. V. Mc-
Namara, of Reno, to V. L. Snelling,
local livestock agent, regarding ship
ment from LBkevlew over the N.-C-O.
Ry., I self explanatory. The fact
that these rates are to be estai lished
will be a revelation to the Lakn oounty
stockmen. Mr. Snelling inform us
that he expect the market to take a
decided impetus within the next few
week and say there are now about
GO car of sheep that will be ready for
shipment by Sept. 18.
The letter follows:

The installation of Domestic Science

to olty schools. But as the views and

The girla of the Public Schools of
Lakeview are very fortunate in being
able to have a thoro course in Cooking
and Sewing, and, an equipment' suffi
cient for its promotion. j
This work may be and should be
correlated with Reading, Language,
Spelling and Geography in the grades,
and English, Physics. Chemistry, and
Botanv In the High School. One may
help the other, and to some extent, will
be made to do so. Also the home work
of the girls should be given recogni
tion, and it is hoped that each may
prove an incentive to the other.
. In making out a ''ourue of Study for
this school, this beginning year, much
thought has been given to make It cover
the object of the course, and at the
same time te of practical use in this
particular section.
The work actually begins with the
tirat grader, wiio under the supervision
ot his teacher learns to use hia hands
in paper cutting, folding, weaving,
etc. In fact, the firsts three grades
bring out the capabilities of the child
in a strong degree, so that when the
fourth and fifth grades are reached
quite effective work ia done, and the
foundation for sewing proper, well

three of our cars equal in carrying ca
pacity to two sinele deck standard 36
foot 6 Inch car. On thi basis three
of oar 36 foot cars at 144.00 to Dovle,
equals 1132. Two standard 36 foot
6 inch cara at S44.26 Doyle to San Fran
cisco equal $88.50 or a through rate of
122.50 Lakeview to San Francisco for
270 sheep. The rate for two 36 foot
6 inch cars from Klamath is $178.18
for the same number of sheep a diff
erence agairat us of $42.32 for 20 sheep
or about lb 1-2 cents tier head. How
ever, you can use double deck far out
of Doyle or Reno, which will reduce
the difference to about 10 cent per
head per sneep. The double deck rate
for 30 foot 6 inch cars i 10 per cent
of the aingie deck rate, cr $75.23'lfor270

to Doyle at $132.00 makes a through
rate on a double deck car Lakeview,
Oregon to San Francisco of $207.23.
Basing this against Klamath rate for
two single decks of $18.18 it means
difference of 29.05 or about 10 cents per
head higher from Lakeview than from
Klamath. Thia will be absorbed and

An exhibition will be given at the
end of each semester and the work of
the pupil will te kept by the school un
til that time.
A very complete labratory has been
equipped for this work, also a dinning
room service provided.and it is expect
ed that thia department will be one of
the most interesting tetttures of the
school. It must be understood that
this first year course will not be like
the year which follow. Some ot our
girls, we hope, will complete the High
School thia year, theretore, for their
benefit a course has been arranged
which will include 11th and 12th grade
girls. Another year, it can be placed
in the years of the High Schoool where
It more properly belongs. This may
apply to sewing as well.
An optional class of the 9th and 10th
grade girla will be formed in which
the course will be planned with a
thought to future classes. It ia also
hoped that a boy class in cookery can
be organized.
Special attention will be given to the
preparing and serving of mealu. The
members of these classes will be re
quired to wear a uniform during labora
tory hours. This will be tully explain-
ed at organization.
Jn planning for the year'a work in
sewing and cooking, care baa been
taken not to add a heavy burden to the
parent in supplying the materials.
etc., and we earnestly solicit your co
operation, hoping that you will be free
to converse with the instructor on any
phase of the subject not made clear.

What was to have been the grand

Lake Park, near Milwaukee, was par

The above from ibe Oregonian would
indicate that Lakeview waa not alone
in experiencing bad weather on Labor
day, and that it was not so bad here
as elsewhere. The inclement weather
was not sufficient to dampen the ardour
of Lakeview's picnic goers and espe
cially that of the Irish boy and ladies
who gave it. And it ia aome consola

Making: Tour of West
Aiding: Local Offices
Of the 300,000 homestead entries
on file with the Interior Department,
Commssioner of the General Land
Office, Fred Dennett estimates that the
number of final proofs led in the next
12 months will increase 50,000 due to
the Borah three-year homestead law.
"Already applications for final proof
are pouring into the General Land
Office." says Dennett, "and expect the
proportion will grow rapidly, because
the settlers are learning of the new
provision, and enlarge number of them
who already have spent three years or
more on their land, will hat ten to take
advantage of the new p:iveleee."
