DALLAS, OREGON, APRIL 17, 1903.
The way to build up Dallas is to pat
ronize Dallas people.
Th Ob'krver I If s. il . . .
that no serious opposition i bt ii.g
encountered in Bccming a right-of-way
for the water pipe line from
Canyon Creek, to Dallas from
property-owners along th route,
and it is believed dial tin' work ili
the plant can begin within , the
next'month. One or two partite,
have refused to grant the email
concepsiniiH atked for, and it -nil
be necegHHry to begin ai. action
against them at once to secure the
same. Now is the time for the peo
ple of Dallas to stand together and
aid the council in getting the plant
under way as soon as possible. If
there is to be any opposition, let it
come from outside parties, and not
from the people of the town. The
water-works must be built this
Glancing through the columns
of last week's Prineville Review,
our attention was attracted by the
following editorial paragraph:
"Prineville has the best water
and electric light system of any
town of its size in the state and the
rates are more reasonable than any
we have come in contact with."
The electric light and water
plants in Prineville are owned by
the city, and operated under a lease
by II. V. Gates on substantially
the same terms as are provided for
in the Dallas ordinance. Mr.
Gates also operates the Heppner
water-works, and our exchanges
from that town have nothing but
good words for the manner in
which the same are conducted.

The Lndios' Professorship of Dallas
College are pleased to announce that
they have secured the Veterans'
Double Quartet, of Portland, for a
concert in this city next Friday eve
ning, April 24. This quartet, the
youngest member of which is over GO
years of ago, have sung all over the
Pacific Coast, and are in demand by
entertainment committees everywhere.
Their program of quartets, duetts and
solos is one of rare merit, and no one
eJioukl tail to hoar them. It might be
of interest to mention that this double
quartet Is made up of Grand Army
men. The ladles are congratulating
themselves on securing them, as it
has been learned that the fourth
lecture of tho Star Course was not up
to expectations, and this attraction
has been socured in its place. All
persons holding the lecture course
tickets are entitled to admission with
out extra chargo. The concert will be
held in tho College Chapel.

The Poetry of the Orange.
It appeals to you, when the fruit
hunga ripe and sweet on the tree late
in February, or early in March. Then
tho blossoms break out, and the trees
are yellow with golden globes, and
white with orange flowers. It may
to that a flurry of snow has whitened
the mountain tops, and then you have
an artistic background for a tropical
forest. Tho air is full et sunshine,
and heavy with fragrance as night
comes on, and then, if the moon be
shining, you may hear at midnight
through open windows, tho song of
tho mocking-bird in the scented grove,
and it never seemed so melodious before.
An experience like this is possible
any winter, and it is worth a journey
of a thousand miles, while you cun
have it, by taking tho scenic Suasta
