this end the present Commercial club

opinions expressed last evening.
'If everyone will takt.hnM of

number headed this way and many
have already arrived. La Grande and
i Grande Ronde valley must be in posi-

; must show them the . courtesy that
other communities show. We must at

' call for support in an admirable man

not In active business who can render
valuable assistance. Do not wait to
be asked volunteer your services for

Boston culture Is taking on a new
phase, and that Is In an altruist! M.
rection. It is evidenced by the fact
that several wealthy women have per
sonally entered upon various methods
for Improving the condition of the
poor. One woman of ereat wpnlfh

more, for it gives them a oleasnnt
hour, teaches politenres and secures a
happy environment, all of which this
good rich woman thinks gr-atly lm

This new departure has MM consid
eration back of it. It is difTli ult to
attract the unfortunate and m-iift hv

personality into play, and there Is the
real argument for the new departure.
But It Is in other directions that the
rick women are doing their duty to
the poor. It Is becoming a real fash

do more with her personality thai
with her money, eapfcially if she uses
