The wide publicity that an event
like a horse show, stock show or mar
ket day gives a city Is always desira
ble. The Rural Spirit in Its current
issue, speaks of the La Grande show
as follows: "La Grande, Oregon, is
preparing to hold a big stock show
and market day in the near future."
Though brief, It places the stock In
terests of this county before the state
at large and attracts buyers and sell
ers to this section.
