A proposed north and south rail
way line, in adition to the contem
plated line of the Chicago, Milwau
kee & St. Paul, which will traverse
the country from east to west, that
section of Douglas county known as
the Moses Lake district is now at
tracting a great deal of attention
from prospective settlers and home
steaders. Thomas J. Church, of
Church & Co,, has just returned from
a live days' trip ihrough that fic
tion and reports great activity in
For many years this country has
lain idle and a. part of it has
been devoted to range purposes.
Even now many bands of horses
roam through the coulees and bot
toms in the district lying between
the Columbia river and Moses lake.
The proposed new transportation fa
cilities have given the lands a new
interest, however, and in addition to
settlers and homesteaders many well
to-do farmers of Lincoln county are
now selling their farms and moving
into Douglas county. They are able
to obtain land in Douglas at so much
less than they receive for their pres
ent holdings that the difference rep
resents a handsome cash profit for
the work they have done in estab
lishing the farms they are vacating.
In addition to presenting s'ltf-nuid
opportunities for diversified farming
the Douglas coutny lands are adapted
for wheat and produce large crops
of cereals. Most of the Moses lake
district can be easily irrigated from
the lake and properly handled wili
produce great results. For all of
these reasons prjces have gone way
up and the railroad company twill
only sell to f bona fide settlers, no
land being for sale to speculators. In
addition to the irrigation possibilities
furnished by Moses lake, wells driven
on various farms have furnished
plenty of water to irrigate from eight
to ten acres each.—Seattle Times.

Sit Down Together at Sump
tuous Thanksgiving Dinner.
A most enjoya
celebration was held last Thursday
at the Liberty school house, over 100
people of the Columbia Valley and

placing planks on the desks and at
12 o'clock the gathering sat down
to amost sumptuous repast, provided
by the ladies of the districts. There
was everything that could be desired
on a Thanksgiving table and every
one agreed that for quality and quan
tity the dinner exceeded any Thanks
giving dinner they had ever partaken
of. Much of the success of the oc

teacher of the Columbia school and
to Mr. Cochran of the Payton school.
