IS THE PROMISE FULFILLED ?
This week we make our politest
"bow and refer our readers to the
promise made in our first issue. It
was that before live years we would
furnish to the people of Grant Coun
ty a paper secoiid to no weekly in
Eastern Oregon. ' How well that
jjromise has been kept we desi.ie the
people to inspect this issue and con
clude for themselves as to the faith
fulness of the pjomise. Ve now
make another promise to-wit that
as long as The News receives the
support it is now receiving and the
editor hereof can set 8000 ms per
day besides attending to the other
business of the office it will retain
its present size.
By industry, economy, persever
ance, sweet oil and some cheek we
have worried through and have now
got our paper on footing that assures
us that we can issue it to our patrons
at its present size for the usual old
price of $3 per year. Of course we
will make but a living, but we will
have the consolation of knowing that
it is a paper large enough and con
tain enough reading matter of great
enough variety to suit all classes as
well as all sexes. In return for our
extra outlay and desire to please all
of our patrons only ask your contin
ued support and good will.

The High Water of 1880
Did not reach a point equal io that
of 1876, but it was high enough to
do a deal of damage. Time, how
ever, will repair this, but time only
makes worse every case of disease of
