ECHO, UMATILLA COUNTY, OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 16, 1909.
Less Than One Month Until the
Congress Will Be Convened in
the City of Spokane.
WILL ECHO BE REPRESENTED?
Board of Control Offering Every In
dacement to Secure Proper Partic
ipation Will Attract Attention
to Echo flake i Good Display.
In less than one month the
National Irrigation Congress
will be convened in the city of
Spokane. Now will Echo be
represented in the Congress?
What are we doing to make our
presence felt? What plans are
being made to advertise this
community to the hosts which
will attend the Congress?
These are questions which every
loyal citiz .n of Echo should be
asking himself. A month is a
very short time in which to ans
wer these questions creditably.
The Board of Control at Spo
kane has offered every argument
and inducement to secure our
proper participation and to have
us realize our really great op
portunity to place before the
eastern visitor the splendid ad
vantages of our section. They
have asked us to send our band
and a ami ching club, and have
even offered under fair condi
tions to refund the railroad fares
of the band members. The
Board of Cont rol urges that we
make the inarching club as
unique as possible. Why? Not
to attract attention to Spokane
but to Echo.
It is not merely the onlooker
and visitor at the Congress who
will be impi eased by our display
if unique and attractive. If we
do the thing right our success
will be heralded over the entire
country by the scores of press
correspondents repres e n t i n g
every important daily who will
be present on that occasion,
As John S. Hughes, field rep
resentative of the Hoard of Con

community can in this day live
to itself. Its interests are
wrapped up with those of every
other community in the section
of the country where it is placed.

TWO DIG COMBINED SHOWS
ARE HEADED THIS WAY
The Hjjenbeck-WiUirt Showi Are Fijht-

Many of our readers will re
gret that such a combination of
famous shows as the Hagenbeck
Trained Wild Animal Exhibition
and the Great Wallace Shows
cannot be brought to this place,
and yet they will be pleased to
learn that it is to exhibit at Pen
dleton on July K5.
Some people may have lost
the habit of going to a neighbor
ing city to see a circus for the
reason that they think all shows
are alike. This will not apply
to the Hagenbeck- Wallace Show?
When operated under different
proprietorship each of these
shows was in a class distinct
from any of the other tented
shows. Now that they are com
bined and the public can sec both
th famous and sensational per
formances of the wild boasts of
the Carl Hagenbeck Shows and
the exclusive features of the
three-ringed exhibition of the
Wallace Show for one price of
admission, it is expected that an
unusually large number of ieo
pie of this community will at
tend the exhibition at l'endleton
on July 10.
Those people who have at
tended any of the great "World's
Fairs" may have seen the Hagen-1
beck Trained Wild Beasts, but'
most of our readers have never !
