SIR KNIGHT, EXPERT!!
A human being on first enter
ing, this world ia hungry, naked,
powerlesi and void of experience.
To care for and develop such a
' helpless creature so that at aia
turity it can engage in the battle
of life, that inevitable struggle
for mainlaiuauce, with some pro
epect of success. Parental in
slinct, in civilized society 'baa
been found insufficient, acd the
state must step in. .The state
does this as a nutter of self pro
t te,,A"- ' i ctri-5lu huu per
petuation depends on the skill
of the people to well do the in
numerable things that are acc
essary to be done in order that
a civilized commuuity can exist.
Pjeparatory to acquiring this
skill and aptitude much of the
knowledge acquired by experi
ence and observation by genera
tions now dead, and the addi
tions made thereto by the
matured cf the living generation
must be learned, for at birth no
one knew anything of the past
or present, o the source of food
or how it is procured from earth
or sea; knew not how to express
a thought or make known a de
sire in words. What we call
science is hut humane experi
ence and observation, collected,
classified and rendered access
able for .ise and transmission.
It 'a this human experience
aud observation that a modern
civilized state finds necessary to
render accessable to its youths,
and it establishes schools, And
colleges where the young may
receive the knowledge necessary
, to enable them, by practice, to
acquire skill and become experts
in whatever calling or station
selected in. the battle of life.
By modern civilization is meant
one wherein the iamily, and not
the armed regime itja the unit,
of state or society.
Knowledge, without the skill
to apply it, is useless,' but when
the two are combined the result
is an expert, that is one who
knows what ought to be done,
and why, and how to do it, to
produce a desired result. The
experts in any vocation that
supplies human wants are
knights of modern civilation.
It owes its superiority to them;
There are many kiiids of meat
but we sell onl? the best kind. A
trial order will convince you of
the truth of this statement. We
kill only the best specimens and
kill it correciiy v t ...
Oar prices are as ,'ow as con
jsistent with the best quality.'
bectiusa it is their knowledge
and skill that enables it to de
clare, truthfully, that nene of
the epilations of the past ever
did so much to render comfort
able and pleasant the home life
of the masses of men kind women.
The 83,000,000 of Americans doff
their hats to Sir Knight, Expert
for it is to him that they are in
debted for the present prosperity
of the land and universal abun
dance. And when he modestly
waives his soil stained hand,
not bio Hi y sword, and modestly
w ith a feeling of profound pat
r iota in says, "No land on earth
ever had o many pleasant homes
as mine has today", the acclaim
of joy and gratitude wells", up
from cabin and mansion with a
roar the .heroes of battles never
It is an evident fact that La
GraDde and Cove should con
nected by rail. The necessities
of the two towns and the inter
mediate country are such that
nothing short of a railroad, eith
er electrical or steam, will longer
suffice ..; During the past year or
two all sorts of railroad rumors
have been afloat, but so far no
thing more substantial than , a
blueprint rnA i'-ii
ed. It is About time that (he
people of this valley cease to de
pend upon the other fellow, but
begin to set up and take notice
or themselves. A- railroad
across the valley is not such a
giant of an undertaking. There
certainly enough capital in
this valley to finance a little
matter of twenty miles of rail
road. Once upop a time this
city with the aid of a few far
sighted farmers subscribed an
amount sufficient to secure the
ocation In this valley of a sugar
factory. When this enterprise
was first mentioned, there were
those who threw up their hands
aud et once branded the plan as
foolish as well at impossible,
but there were others who real
ized what its accomplishment
meant to La Grande and Union
county and as a result of their
efforts the sugar factory wan lo
cated here and stands today a
monument to the progressive
neBS of the citizens of this city
and to the business ability of the
farmers of this valley." AH that
was required to secure the sugar
factory was a united effort on
the part of the citizens of this
city, and a similar effort is all
that is necessary to build a road
across the valley, If a railroad
from La Grande to Cove will pay
a pmfit to eastern capital, why
would Union county capital not
find it equally -profitable? If
there is to he any money made
in the railroad business in this
valley let Union county, men
furnish the money and brains
and reap whatever there may be
of profit. .;' '. ' :
