It is the duty of every business man
to keen in mind the comfort of pa
,l rons who come to town from their
3ountry homes to trade. These warm
(summer days are trying, indeed, on
the men and women and children
when they come and find no place to
sit down in a cool room and rest. The
stores do not afford these accommoda
tions for the reason that they do not
fill the requirements. Neither do the
confectionery or drink parlors. A
public library with a rest room might
fill the want. But this is not all. A
public feed shed should be provided
where the teams of the fanners may
be sheltered. If these provisions are
made they will be glad to come to In
dependence to trade because of the ac
commodations they will meet with
here. Business men, you owe your
prosperity to your customers. Pro

gives me all the news, local and state."
These words sound good to the pub
lisher and are much encouragement

through their commercial bodies and
other agencies for advertising, should
commence at once to take advantage of
the one-way colonist rates which will
be in effect fom Sept. 1st to Oct. 31st.
No state in the Union has recieved
greater benefit through these colonist
rates than Oregon and at no time in
the history of the State were more
people expressing a determination to
come here to make their permanent

I had grown so much worse that I could
not digest a crust of corn bread and
