Mr. Ed. Kiddle made the statement
a few days ago that if this year's crop
had been irrigated at the proper time
that it would have resulted in at least an
additional $250,000 to the growers of
this valley and he remarked that under
proper condition that would have brought
considerable water. There is no question
but what the increased profits would

What are you doing to make the com
ing fair a success?
The fruit exhibit at the fair this year
should be exceptionally interesting. We
have the best of fruit in abundance this
year and if it is not on exhibition it will
be because there is not sufficient interest
taken to place it on exhibition.

Either the La Grande pjblic schools
should contain a first class business de
partment or some one should start a busi
ness college in this city. Either sugges
tion is worthy of consideration. However,
no doubt the most practical and perman
ent would be for a business department
to be added to our school. Under present
conditions all of our young men and young
ladies who desire to fit themselves for
clerical positions must of necessity seek
other localities. This is not as it should
The primary law has brought about a
great change in the politics of this state.
Think of it! It is only five months until
our legislature meets and it is receiving
very little attention from the public gener
ally. Under the old system the campaign
for United States senator would now be
receiving a great deal of attention. As it
is, the people settled that in June and when
the legislature meets it will require oniy
a few moments to formally elect Mr.
Bourne and the balance of the session
will be ent.rely devoted to the best inter
est of the state.

fountain with a new line of crushed fruits and fruit juice which excel any

has nev tried one of our delicious ICE CREAM SODAS we find a hun-
dred who have, and do, and always will, because they war.t the best and
appreciate a fine article. We have some new flavors this year which are
going to be of universal favor on account cf their delicate flavors. Hoping J
