So sang Judge Brainard vears arm n sing we today. About three hundred miles from Pnrt- land, nestling in the heart of the Blue mountains, lies the beautiful OmnrU Ronde Valley. To those who know and love it there is no fairer srot .-m .arm than this "Fair Vale of Grange Ronde." Surrounded by the everlasting hills and snow clad peaks, watered bv Dura rruar! streams, and kissed by the breath of the pines, it offers an ideal place for a home. And there are manv of them here.

In fact, along every creek, and in every little nook and valley far up into the mountains there are prosperous little homes. ' There are in the Grande Ronde Valley, six towns and three villages of varying sizes. Some of the largest are incorpor. ated, and all are growing, and doing a volume of business according to their sizes. All have schools and churches, most of them have fburino mills and other industries, notably, a woolen mill at Union, a beet sugar factory at La Grande and a pine fibre factory at Summerville. But it is of the wonderfully fertile soil of the Grande Ronde. that the at.tanfion of the homeseeker is especially invited, for in orande Rondo Valley we have "Bread and with it." Car loads of white, whole wheat and graham flour are shipped out ot here, every year. While our millers, on request, make corn meal, oat meal and even buck-wheat flour. All which cereals are raised here, and in addition, rye and barley. To go with our bread we have, first, meat; cattle, hogs, sheep and fowl, (chick ens, ducks, geese, turkeys and pigeons,) and fish. And besides the grain to feed our meat, we raise timothy, alfalfa clover wild grasses, and some progressive farm ers, and the Experiment station have been testing other varieties; but as they are not extensively cultivated, we will not mention them. On the surrounding hills is found the nutritious bunch grass. To be sure, we must not forget the butter and cheese produced from our cows, both in homes and creameries. And ves! Ice cream; for no one knows how manv hun dreds of gallons the creameries make every summer, and even far into the win ter, not to mention that made in private houses. Surely the ice cream cow must not be omitted from our list of blessings. To be seasoned with all these cood things, are our vegetables. Where can you find more succulent onions, radishes. lettuce, spinach, celery, cabbase. cauli flower and what riot? Or more mealy The Best Guaranty of Merit Is Open Publicity.
