Does it appear to the average
business man that he can work up
a business mul sell goods without
first ha. '111(1 the coods to sell
Does it not statid to reason that if
he wishes to sell more goods that
he must lend his efforts and pres--ence
in getting more people to
come to his store? When the busi
ness man gets the goods and opens
a store if he is progressive does he
not advertise, in some way or other
to get the people to come to his store?
If it is consistent that we have more
people in our community, does it
not appear that the several business
men must, collectively, let out
siders know why we demand a por
tion of their attention and presence?
In order to do it, isn't it good
policy to send broadcast some mes
sage in some way or other that will
advise those who are coming
west that we ore among the live
people that we live in one of the
best communities in the west that
we have more natural advantages
than anyotber place in Oregon in
fact extend a hand of welcome to
the throng of immigrants now west
ward bound? If such is the case
let us turn out to a man and swell
the membership of the Commercial
Club. For this purpose, this club
is organized. It is not the duty ot
one man, or two, or six, or a dozen
men to go-forward and keep an or
ganization of this kind up, but it is
the duty of every public spirited
citizen to assist in keeping it up.
To see that it is run right. To
know that the best possible use is
made of the money subscribed.
To boost the town, the community.
Not to lie about it, but to claim
credit for what we have. Don't,
get an idea that when you have
subscribed your membership fee
that you have done your duty.
You haven't, until you have come
out and help spend it in a manner
calculated to benefit all concerned.
Gentlemen, come out to the Com
mercial Club Friday night. Lend
your presence. It won't hurt you.
Come out. Let's bring about a
condition oi affairs, that will cause
people to suspicion, at least that
we are on the map. Let it never
be slung in out teeth again that we
lack public spirit, that we are not
enterprising. These things sting
gentlemen let's avoid the sting.
Now that Mr. Fultou is elected
United States Senator, Republicans
should show n disposition to forget
past difference and pull together.
The Democrats arc the enemy, and
all the extra Republican energy
should be bent In their direction.
The only political interest taken in
Oregon has been in the fight be
tween Republicans, The result at
last placed a Democrat in the high
est office in the state, which easily
shows that it is possible to elect
more Democrats even in a state
which has 15,000 Republican ma

retirement irom the newspa

about by his impaired health. It
will be with a feeling ot sadness
that Mr. Campbell's newspaper
brothers record this fact, and it

However, the business now goes
wholly iuto the hands of J. R.

dictating the policy of the Guard,

health failed some three years ago.
John Campbell is a bright, brainy
man, a true gentleman, thoroughly
experienced in the business, and
will pilot the Guard to a safer and
solider foundation than ever before.

ACIFIC TIMBER GO'S STORK,
COTTAGE GROVE. OREGON.
I Under Odd Fellow's Hall,
Our Complete Line of
T would Spoil This Story to Tell it
To use in eighteenth century phrase, nmr '" : verng
this is an "o'er true tale.'' Havine 1 --''h iiiiiiiIht dnj
The Nugget wishes to call the
particular attention of the citizens
of Cottage Grove to the fact that
the city is fortunate in having a
band organization that is not ex
celled by any like oaganization in
any place of the size of Cottage
Grove, in Oregon. When we stop
to think of it we are naturally
proud of the fact, and if we should,
any of us, be caught away from
home, and the subject should be
brought up, we, any ol us, would
take particular pride in praising
the organization and the boys 'of
which it is composed. In fact, the
most of us would be apt to "swell
up" a little on the proposition.
But at home, in the ordinary walk
of life, we too seldom underestimate
sometimes do not estimate at all
anc perchance, forget the fact
that we have so commendable an
organization. We also are apt to
forget the fact that it takes time,
patience, money and, many times,
ljard knocks, to maintain an or
ganization of this kind. A band is
always expected to turnout, as it
should, to assist in any public en
tertainment wherein the proceeds
go to aid public enterprises, and no
band has done more and shown a
willingness to do more in this w;ay
than has the C. M.' A. of this city.
The organization should not be
expected, however, to give its ser
vices to political gatherings, Fourth
of July celebrations, etc: In fact
here is where the handsome thing
should be done a good revenue,
turned into the cohers of the 'or
ganizatiqn. Let us remember that
we have an organization not easily
excelled; that it is struggling along
Jn an heroic way, dependent upon
the combined energy of the several
members to provide -ways and means
to secure music; that it is a deserv'
Jug and useful organization; that it
only asks for just consideration and
patronage, and, that in several ways

we owe a vote of thanks as well as
our patronage to the leader, Mr.
Cochran, who has given his time
and ability, with very little com
pensation, and to the boys, who
have given Cottage Grove the repti
tation of having an "A" band.
