Kvldoncos of tho return to busi

overy day's uows. For example the
reports of building portnl(s in cities

Thoro is however, a goncral ba
llot hero In Kaotern Orogon that Mr.
Olcott considers irrigation a falturo,
and siuco tho wholo futuro of many
Hastern Oregon communities is de

regretted that tho head of tho stato
government entertains such ideas.
Ho can not bo In sympathy with tho
aspirations of this section.
Whllo Eastern Oregon has not
had ono ot Its citizens chosen for tho
gubernatorial chair sluco tho lato

elected; and now has no candldato
of Its own, it might bo fitting to

Bo far as tbo Argus is aware,
Louis E. Uean, who though born
and rnlBcd in tho Willamette Valley
has a longor rcsldonca in Eastorn
Oregon, and a groater familiarity
and sympathy with tbo alma and

Uean rodo tho raugo In Eastern

Dear Old Thing:
Now that, the Dicky birds are with ub again
and the juioy worm is making dates with the early
ones and the sheep are -looking upper and the calves
are looking fatter, now is the time that you are going
to order that new Spring Suit. And if, (Oh you little
"if") and if you order it from us, you will get a
late style, a perfect fit, a new pattern in an all-wool
piece of goods and fine workmanship. You will not
meet your 'twin' ' on tho street a few weeks later, as
we sell only one suit to each Bample. That's the right
way, isn't it? We purchase the goods from one house
and have the suits made by another firm, so we are
sure that they are made to measure. We know how to
take a measure that's a big help. Drop in tomorrow
or the next day and seo our new Spring samples you' 11
be surprised. Yours truly,
ONTARIO LAUNDRY & DRY CLEANING WORKS.
