All who really love flowers and enjoy
seeing them, should drive to the W. T.
Cross place, three and a half miles from
i town on the road to Hot Lake, and call
upon Mrs. Cross. She makes a specialty
of growing asters, and without doubt she
has the finest collection of both foreign
and domestic asters to be found in the
state. An attempt to describe the many
varieties and colors displayed in her gar .
den would but poorly describe their beauty
and therefore we would advise all who
delight in flowers to drive out and see
what care and intelligent attention will do
toward converting a weed patch into a
bower of beauty.

HAD ONE COMING
An Observer reporter was in Island
City yesterday afternoon an J called upon
Lee Umphery one of the live merchants
of that little city. Lee was wearing an
exceptionally happy smile which caused
the reporter to ask for the causa. The
answer was good enough to make any
public spirited citizen smile. It was. "That
smile is easy enough to explain. Every
wheat grower in the valley who threshed
has sacked more wheat this season than
he expected. I guess I have a smile com
ing." The reporter thought so too.
