La Grande on the 29th of this
month will have un opportunity of
hearing- a lecturer which cities of this
size seldom enjoy. We refer to Rus
Hell H. Conwell, who will lecture In
the Baptist church under the auspices
if thut denomination.
Russell H. Conwell In known all
over this continent an a brllllunt
preacher, author and orator. He de
livered hlH first lecture In 1S62 and
has delivered from 100 to 2:25 lectures
every year since. Even old staid Phil
adelphia nits up and takes notice when
he aoppears In that city. The Phila
delphia Times recently paid: "Con
well la the only lecturer In America
Alio can fill a hall In this city with
3H00 people at a dollar a ticket."
Conwell'a record reads like a- ro
nnce. At the colse of the war hi
'I graduated from the Albany law uni
versity. In 1 ! 6 7 he represented Min
nesota as its Immigration agent in,
lermany. One year Inter he was cor
respondent on the New York Tribune.
Three years later made a tour of the
vorld In the Interest of that pper.
Ills biography of Spurgreon has reach
id a sale of 125,000 volumes, in four
After practicing law eight years In
I'oston he was ordained to the m!al
t;-y and accepted n call to Grace fiap-
t'sl church of Philadelphia, which Ini-
iicdliitely entered upon nn estraor
'Inary career of prosperity and I
li tho larirest Baptist church In
America. He built a temple In 1831
with u seating capacity of 4200, unii
luring the past 10 years hols popular
ty has spread so generally that ad
mission Is only obtained by ticket, nnc
thousands are often turned away.
i'"rom the proceeds he has received
from his lectures he founded a uni
versity that never closed its doors
night or day, run especially for tin
benefit of the common people, and In
conjunction with his work he also
founded a hospital of the first order,
and Is credited with assisting- tnort
men to secure an education than any
other single man In America.
Of his 30 lectures that have made
him famous one, "Acres of Diamonds,"
he has delivered 2600 times In the
past 29 years.
Kussell H. t'onwell was born In a
iionntaln home. He is a self-made
man, with a great heart. He has ac
complished marvelous results. You
cannot afford to misa hearing this
.jreut man when he visits our city.
HIS term includes everything from a visiting card to a full
sheet poster; a leaflet to a leather bound book. THE
OBSERVER JOB DEPARTMENT is equipped so thorough-
ly that we are able to handle "JOBS" with ease which
to other offices would seem a real burden.
By this term we mean Letter Heads, Bill Heads, Envelopes
and Office Stationery in general. THE OBSERVER JOB DEPART
