and do a little careful thinking. We
are all of the opinion that La Grande
will some day become a city of at

have discovered some Industry that
would prove profitable to the opera

have your views. If we would all do
a little thinking and work In harmony
we would surprise ourselves with our
accomplishments between now and
next Christmas eve. Is It not worthy
of a trial?
