Everything at present Indicates
that La Otundo is soon to have a
public paJlk and one that will be a
credit and pleasure to all. The only
thing that can forestall the present
movement will be lack of general In-
' tcrest.' That is like so many publlc-
' spirited enterprises, the. Initiative work

It Is not generally known, but it is
a fact nevertheless, that the O. ItV &

When these plans were drawn It was
the Intention to locate them at Pendle

Idea Is to be forthcoming. A $5,000
concrete, brick or stone building would
only be In keeping with the needs
and progresslveness of La Orande.

The football boys who returned last
evening from Joseph, cannot find a
sufficient numVr of adjectives to ex
press their appreciation of the royal
entertainment they received at the
hands of the Joseph people. In fact,
they received a royal welcome at every
point along the line, and received Invi
tation's for games from every town.
No one had better knock Wallows
county in the presence of these boys.
Look pleasant. Jut because the sun
did' not shine yesterday, do not forget
the weeks and weeks of delightful
weather we all enjoyed ho much 'this
fall.- Just keep on sml!tn:f. Delight-,
ful us I! was, if the weather would,
continue for tho next three months as
it has in the past, we would all be,
bankrupt by sp'rlnsr. Tho- weather,
man often knows what 'is best for us.
