oclety, wishes to announce that the
ounty fair, will be held this year at
La Grande, beginning October ' 4th,
tad lasting one week. " V
The new catalogue will be out now
to a short time, the cause of the de

to . get the Wallowa county people
to Join as and combine the two fairs.

this exception, trany of ihe premiums
bare been raised and new features
added, and also a large special list

On the front page of the Chicago
Record Herald of September 8. com
mences a lengthy article by William
E. Curtiss the noted political and in
dustrial writer, who some time ago
visited this city and Wallowa county
to procure data for writing several
articles of this class. The article Is
often misleading and not clear, though
it has excellent features in It. The
first sentence brands railroad em
ployes as "undesirable citizens," when
it states that Huntington is the worst
town in four states, being populated
principally by railroad men. Gradu
ally the writer works his way to La
Grande and in many respects, be it
said to his credit, he has painted a
true accurate pen picture of condl-,
tlonB as they exist here. He devotes
considerable space to the Industrial
interests, " the geographical location
aivr imt urn I mn !
considerable Bpace to the early his
tory of the valley and its inhabitants.
The underlrlng belief in eastern
soulta that the west is still possessed
with the typical gun man and western
bad men crops out In various places
from Mr. Curtlss's pen. ..
In any event, the word La Grande
will be read by a concourse of peo
ple, for the article is run as the fea
ture story, and is bound to attract a
due share of attention.

"Uncle Josh Tonight
The tremendous and undisputed
success of the new comedy drama.
"Uncle Josh Perkins," which is to be
seen at Steward's Opera house to
night, is said to be due to more thaa
one reason. In the first place "Unci
Josh Perkins" has what nine out of
ten latter day so-called productions
cannot s lay legitimate claim to, an
absolutely original plot, good dialogue
and fourteen different and distinct
types of character. A scenic produc
tion complete to the most minute de
tailthe brlllancy of its collection of
Interpreters with all of these added
features . and an added list of blgn
class specialties in Its favor, then
Is no other lot, but that of unbounded
success due "Uncle Josh Perkins"

local reception, being one of the most
successful of the present season.
