Furlong explored the land of. and

The two explorers have drawn
many Interesting comparisons
between these peoples living at
the extremes of the Inhabited
globe. Many points of similar

The two have noted, that mea

Message From La Grande This
Morning to Effect Danger
Places Will Hare Fences.
Assurance that the stato highway
department will begin work within a
short time on placing guard rails along
the dangerous curves on the I'endle-ton-Echo
road was received this morn
litif B.v Kmcbt lYockntt,- s reir.r-tf
the Eastern Oregon Auto Clu. tn o
long distance tolcphon message from
It. H. Paldock at Ui Grande.
The action on the part of the high
way department will insure safe roads
from the west for Bound-Up time, an.
Improvement on which tiie club has
been working, for several weeks. It I
consldered likely, too, that the same
protections that are to bs provided for
the weat road will be put in place on
two or three of the curves on the Cab
bage Hill road.
The decision on tho part of the
highway department to do this work
Is a result of Inspections made by Mr.
Baldock during the past few days. It
Is also probable that in addition to the
guard rails signs giving Information to
tour.sts will be put in place at differ
ent spots along the way.
