do man has an excuse to die poor in
the Grande Ronde val!ey. Exactly so.

StTrODTIXGG THE CHAUTAUQUA.
Next week the Chautauqua associa
tion will place its season tickets cn
ale. On the number taken will large
ev:nt. That La Grande will push this
alendld event to the front this year
ere Is Utile doubt, but It cannot be
done by the work of an exclusive few.
A Chautauqua assembly is a neeessari
f Jy a community undertaking and tv
-"harder the community as a whole
works the greater results will be ob
tained. : ' '
at will be remembered that last year
It -aid its way. which was really a
remarkable record for the first year of
any Chautauqua. This being the sec
ond year there should be no question
but what the association is entitled
to launch out a little farther from
safe ground and contract for heavier
obligations which means a better line
of talent and more features of enter
talnm.nt. r ': "
Th's bit ot advice is due tha associa
tion, however: Encourage n'O'-e cri
ers. Make the pak an'lnvltint plait
and then induce people to take ta-.ir
tents and call it home during the per
lod. No cliautauqua fulfills what was
Intended for it withor.t .campers and
plenty of them. (
HUGS AND MONEY.
Th- Grande Ronde hog is in demand.
You never want to sneer at a hog. He
Is one of the beet pieces of property
In the world today.and every day for
that matter. Listen to this: Swam
and Greullch, Pendleton packers, are
hipping out all the Grande Ronde
nors they can buy in this valley, and
they ere shipping them to Pendleton
feed the men who raise wheat.
You may think, well, the Grande
Ronde In turn mtiBt hav the Pendle
ton wheat for bread stuffs. Not true,
for this valley produces ten times as
much' as Eastern Oregon can consume.
In the columns of trade, then, the con
clusion must be drawn that this valley
Is far ahead of Umatilla county in the
balance of trade and so it is.
The hog produced in the Grande
Ronde Is of such excellent quality that
It tops the Portland market whenever
it shows up there. It Is a stnndari
product and the wender is that more
arc not produced.
Dear this in mind, the man who gets
a f w acres of alfalfa land and raises
hogs one year with another In the
Grande Ronde valley will die a rich
man.' But the same is true of the man
who will ' raise wheat in this valley,
. and the sam? Is true of the man who
will move out on a fruit ranch n!
raise fruit bv hard work and ap'lW
tlon. It is then to he understood that
If you hear the last small plea of u
weary traveler some night . you can
readily understand he has gotten Into
one of the niudholes of La Grande's
residence streets and Is forever lost.
