I f this and former issues of
the News o f late, during these
strenuous days o f County-Division
is below normal in the amount of
reading and news matter printed,
our only excuse is that we are
giving our entire time to the Cas
cade County cause.
In as much as hundreds o f our
brother and sister taxpayers in
this part o f the county are devot
ing their time and money to the
same good cause, with probably
little time left for the perusal of
the home-paper, we hope our ex

vertisers, all o f whom are devot
ing time and money to the good
work and who incidentally, in or
der to allow the News staff to
spend more time on county-divi
sion and less type-setting have
substituted for their display ad
vertisements, just a few words

stores, preferring the News office,
where hot air is more plentiful.
Since the cold weather set in,
old Tom has had to either take
his naps on the benches on Broad
way, or has to miss hearing some
o f the Cascade County discussions
so he has taken to snoozing on
the warm hoods of the automo
biles parked alone the pavement,
where the heat from the engines
guarantees sweet dreams and
places him well above the level
o f the town’s dogs, to whom he
pays no attention while awake.
