OUR PUBLICITY WORK.
There Is a grave fear expressed that
the publicity work of the Oregon City
Commercial Club will be abandoned.
It is certainly apparent that the real
spirit of harmony does not exist In
the governing body on the fourth
floor of the Masonic Temple and that
the idea of co-operation with Presi
dent Randall is not uppermost.
This Is a matter that the members
of the Commercial Club should Im
mediately make a fight for. Either we
an" going forward, or we are going
the other way, we are not going to
stand still in this day and age and
Progress will march past unless we
are hospitable. If the reports that
leak out of the executive chamber of
the Board of Governors are correct,
then that body should meet in the
open club rooms, where the members
can learn what is going on.
The appointment of a new commit
tee to take charge of the distribution
of the funds subscribed for publicity
work has been held up through the
action of the Board of Governors of
the Commercial Club in declining to
confirm the committee named lat
Tuesday night by Tom P. Randall, the
new president of the club. Accord
ingly Mr. Randall, who was treasurer
of the former publicity committee,
has, at the request of the Board of
Governors, transferred the balance of
the money on hand, amounting to
J1192.S3. Mr. Randall Is expected to
Insist upon the appointment of the
men he wants for his publicity com
mittee and while the names of the
suggested committee have not been
made public, it is understood that
Attorney 0. D. Eby is to be the chair
man. There seems to be a disposi
tion on the part of the new Board of
Governors to undervalue the work of
the publicity department and this
sentiment Is very generally deplored.
President Randall, himself, who has
been connected with the publicity
work in Oregon City ever since the
work was started, is a firm believer
in the efficiency of advertising of
The high price of nearly everything
that one eats Is producing an agita
tion throughout the land. There Is
no State, town or community In which
the subject Is not felt and discussed.
It may well be a matter of popular
concern, for within the memory of
an overwhelming majority of people
now living, the cost of food stuffs to
the consumer have well nigh doubled.
It Is said and believed that the origi
nal producer is getting but little more

They have drugged themselves aad

are still hopelessly seeking health !n
the same channels year after year.
Paso Robles waters contain all that
seems to be required by the system to
regulate the delicate machine of wo
man, while the perfect air, the beau
tiful scenery and pleasaut surround-
ings bring peace and quiet to the
sensitive nerves of women so neces
sary to her health. In the hotels and
boarding houses one meets peoi le of
all degrees, for these springs know
no class, quality or station of life.
Paso Robles gives health to all who
seek its waters and its air. The bath
houses are wonders of modern science
For weal, nervous, suffering women,
no matter what condition of health
they may be In, Paso Robles is a ref
uge for certain health. Xo one. un
less he or she be afflicted with tuber
culosis or some unclean malady, is
denied the use of the baths.
Baths of all descriptions can be
had sulphur, mud, vapor, hot, steam
and cold while the drinking of the
waters serves to bring relief for all
manner of stomach, neurotic, kidney
and other troubles.
Paso Robles is not a dream of some
far away Mecca where health awaits
at the end of a costly journey, but in
a spot within California where health
may be had free for the asking and
man and woman may be cured if they
will but try.
