Much of the Commodity
Is Now Being- Hauled In
From Warner Lake
The salt harvest of Warner Valley
ia now on, and Harry Kicrgs has thre
teams cnricd in hauling the product
to local merchants. The "mines" are
'owned hv Mr. Kiiztrs and are loeated a
short distance north of I'lubh, some 40
miles from Lakeview. The industry is
one of long standing, although having
gained no particular prominence, per
haps of the fact because it was "too
common " The salt is of a coarse
quality and suitable for sjock purposes
only, ulthough with roper cure a much
finer grained article can fie had. The
SHlt is being delivered to all towns in
this county and a number of tons has
been sold in Harney county.

But It Follows In Rapid

by Sheriff Snider
While the old saying that misfortunes
never come singly may not always be
true, yet, W. F. Grob is of the opinion
that they fellow each other in mighty
rapitl succession. Early last June Mrs.
Grob was compelled to enter a hospitil
at Portland to undergo an operation
and treatment, and Bhe just returned
home lust Thursday. Mr, Grub had
been suffering from a cold for several
days previously, and that night he Pe
came worse and by the next morning
he was threatened with pneumonia.
Dr. E. H. Smith was called and he
at once proceeded to administer treat

It is estimated that fully 2.000,000
pounds of wheat was raised this year
in Goose Lake Valley from Crane Creek
north and including the West Side. All
of that grain is tributary to the Lake
view mills, and much of it ia now being
delivered to them. Some of the wheat
was damaged by the frost which oc
curred about the middle of August,
but tho mills will have sufficient to
keep them running for some time.
If local Interest is any criterion,
there ia no election likely to take
pluce hereabouts in the next hundred
years. However, it is announced that
there ia to be a County, State and
National eleotion two weeks from
next Tuesd ay.
Another Outfit Is Bought

Sheriff Snider did some exceptionally
qnick work last week in capturing
three alleged horse, rustlers in the
northern part of the cou.-.ty. Sheriff
Balfour, of Crook County. wired Snider
to arrest "Purk ' Robinson, Bill Koo-
inson and Shorty Allen upon a
of horse stealing. Snider, knowing
that if all were not arrested at once the
others would flee, sent Deputies P. D.
Reeder, A. B. Sehroner and W. Hayes

cabin in scuch of two, while he and
Andy Fotter went to. Summer Lake
