Colonel Roostrrlt is easily pleas
ed, baring expressed delight over
his reflection to membership in
the Republican Club.
One good war not to raise
money for the Red Cross is by
celling kisses the Walla Walla
method.
The local directors were either
very lucky or Tery wise when they
picked their school superintendent
from forty or more applicants.
Hun Gothas have killed and
wounded a hundred nurses by
bombing Red Cross hospitals, but
cannot thus defer the day of retribution.
If quality and valud mean anything: to you if you'd like the right style, too it will
pay you to trade at The Peoples Warehouse.
Our stocks arc by far the largest in Pendleton? our prices, quality considered, are the least. We are selling
a great many, articles now for less than the present wholesale cost because we bought them early and in large
quantities and we want to make it possible four our patrons to save on needed merchandise.
Buy here and you'll be helping yourselves.
Spuds may be cooked in 101
different ways, and arc good in
every one of them.
We fear that Agent Sh rock's en
thusiasm exceeds his regard for sta
tistics when he proclaims elsewhere
that "Umatilla county la the lead
ing wheat growing county of the
United State." Our own impres
sion is that it is led in wheat pro
duction by one or two Washington
counties. However, they are by no
means better counties than good
old Umatilla.

Farmers, do you want to famil

methods? If so, get in touch with
the county agent within the next

to have a three-days' grain grading

about the middle of June. The tu

days.

Naturally none of tia would now
prefer to have our meat raw, our po

our coffee un roasted.
And naturally follows the great dis
