these 188 are males and 150 are females. This Is an increase of 55 over last
year or nearly 21 per cent. It is stated that this number will be greatly
augmented before the first of June.
LAKE COUNTY WAKING UP.
Lake County is evidently in a bad way, but if there is anything in the
power of the Press, the people have not long to remain inactive. The papers
over there are trying to outdo each other in instilling a little energy Into
their readers. Lakeview is about to organize a Promotion Club and the
newspapers are devoting columns to giving advice as to necessary iinprov-
mants to be undertaken. The vast number of these improvements would
d.«:outage the most enthusiastic, but the Club will find that they can ac
complish more by doing one thing at a time. The Examiner thus advertises
tiie undesireable features of the county:
“We are doing practically nothing for the general welfare, in the way of I
permanent, public improvement. Many citizens would not have our court
house as a barn. There is not a mile of permanent, good road in the county.
Our children are going abroad for educational advantages that ought to be
■'applied at home.”
CITY FIRE DEPARTHENT
Klamath Falls has a good Fire Department.
The members want to make it BETTER and eventually the BEST
of any town its size in the state.
Do you want better fire protection, and if so. are you willing to help

The second annual ball of the Klamath Falls Fire Department will
be given on Friday evening, March 31. 1905. This ball is given for the pur
pose of raising money to buy uniforms and other equipment for the Depart
ment. Since the organization of the present Fire Department, January 28,
1901, it has been practically self supporting and has each year added to its
equipment, until now it has two good hose carts with 1000 feet of hose, a
hoof- id ladder wagon with one extension and two single ladders, and poles,
hooks, axes, etc. It is also equipped with twelve rubber coats and several
lantern» for the use of its members.
The Fire Department is composed of over 40 members, including
most of the younger business men of the town, who all take an active inter

SPRING CLEANING ON THE FARM
Within the next week or two the first heralds of the migration will
be coining to Oregon, in the shape of farmers from nearly every state in the
Union. Invitations have been spread broadcast, and every inducement that
Oregon can offer has been published far and wide. The horses will surely
be brought to the water, but can they be made to drink.
Oregonians owe it to themselves and to the state that the first im
pression on interested visitors is one of pleasure, satisfaction and admira
tion—not of disappointment and disgust. Thousands of farms in Oregon
are for sale. Why this is the case is a curious inquiry, but it is so. Now
Oregon in herself can be trusted to do her part. The visitors will surely be
charmed with the main features of the places they visit. Beautiful scenery,
good land, excellent transportation facilities generally, abundant water,
healthy-iooking orchards, plenty of schools, towns and trading points in
abundance, ail are signs and tokens of a genial climate. They will have in
quired about the opportunities and profits on the farm. They will have
been told of the earnings of the dairy, the orchard, the flock and the herd.
They will be, they must be, fully satisfied that Oregon farming, if Inspired
with industry and intelligence, shows rising profits and big opportunity for
«owth and expansion.
Filled with such ideas, the newcomer will be driven up to the farm,
the nearest town may. be in fair condition—certainlv much

trees near by will be just ready to bloorn. Will the trees be cler.n and uni

the barn and outbuildings, will all the planking be in place, with no loose
boards banging in the wind? Will there be a sidewalk from house to barn,
