Promise of New Year.
The E M & M. company in its New Year announcement in thin
paper, strikes the key note for E.iterptise and all Wallowa county
while the last 12 months have been the most prosperous in the history
of the comity, the brightness of 1907 is excee ied by the splendid
promise of 1908.
The development of the great resources of Wallowa county has
scarcely begun. The timber, mines, agriculture and horticulture
riches hardly touched. With transportation facilities and a fair price
for products, th6 advancement of Wallowa will exceed the most darin?
dream of its most enthusiastic citizen. .
So with miny reasons for a Merry Christmas the citizens of this
favored county have many more for a Happy and Prosperous New
Year. The News Record has good reasons of its own in joinii.' the
hopeful chorus, ami will do its level bet to brin about the conditions
that will make for the upbuilding of this county. Mer'y Chiiitirof and
Happy New Year to all. 1
Nothing hut word of praise are heard for the newly appointed
register of the La Grande land oflioe, F. C. Rratnwell. He has been
deputy county clerk of Union county for three years, and is said to he
the most efficient and at the same time the most popular deputy ever
in that office. Mr. Davis1 many friends are naturally disappointed
that he failed to secure the plum again, but so far have said nothing
derogatory of his successor.
Speaker Joe Cannon must think Congressman Ellis is a prohibi
tionist. He placed Eastern Oregon's representative on two water com

To the People of Wallowa
The year 1907 has been, everything considered, the most prosper-
year in the history" of this great Empire-County. The E. M. C& M.
Company has shared in this general prosperity and has done the larg
est business, both in mill and store, of any twelve months in the twenty
years that we have done business in Enterprise. The company is
grateful for the generous patronage accorded it, especially as it proves
we have what we have endeavored to merit the confidence of the
Even brighter than the achievements of 1907 is the splendid
promise of 1908. The pania is over and while the delay in the comple
tion of the railroad and loss on stock has been a disappointment, the
great resources of this county are unhurt. In a few months the "holi
days" will be forgotten, and with work resumed on the railroad and
good prices for products Wallowa county will enter on a new era. Our
store and mill will be found not only abreast but as in the past a little
ahead of that progress. And so, thankful for your friendship in 1907,
and wishing one and aU a Merry" Christmas and a Prosperous and
Happy New Year,
We are Yours to Command,
