WEDNESDAY, MAY 2li, 191.i,
I Hond has arrived at a milestone In

whence Is seen n pleasant outlook.

'Winning this first hill top. deceive
Ourselves Into thinking that wo luivo

municipal ambitions. Let us not, -for
one Hulf-satlsllcd moment, bo content
with what wo have attained.
Hnthor, lot us rcallzo fully nnd
with unanimous determination, that
tho bigger hills, thu summits really
worth gaining, still Ho before us.
Our nmbltlons should In no wlsu

whnt nbovo tho level. It la rather
for us to Ktrlvo more persistently for
tho higher positions which we now
sco with ever Increasing clearness
ahead of uh, cheered In our resolvo
to reach them by thu hiicccss thus
far nchleved.
In other worilR, Hond has not "nr
rlved." It takes moro thnn one swal
low to make a summer as tho saying
goes; and moro than ono lumber mill,
or oven sovoral lumber mills aro re
quired lo make such a town as wo
deslro Ilond lo lie.
Fortunately, In addition to our
timber, which Is our grcnt Immediate,
economic asset, nnturo has given uh
other notable roHources. Whllo do
ing all wo can to assist those who aro
undertaking thu development of tho
timber opportunities upon a scnlo
t lint nlono will make of Ilond n good
ly city, let us remember Hint It Is now
more than ever a community duty to
encourage tho upbuilding of our oth

nro delighted to bo that, and wnndor

ono railway converging here.
At homo, In town, thero Is also
much to bo done. In tho past we
hao worked for a woolen mill and
for other Industries. Now, It Is
doubly desirable to renew our efforts,
and hereafter It will be easier, for
wo shall bo stronger. A plant will
come here, for we have tho wool, the
water, tho power and the transports
Hon. l,et us hasten It. Let us en
courage establishment here of big
Industries subsidiary to genoinl lum

a stnrch factory, for enlarged brick
and tile plant, Important stone qunr

tho pralsoworthy effort for tho es
tablishment here of a sanatorium will
be renewed, and with success. There
It sound reason for Dend to become a
health resort of note, nnd Its out-of-doors
attractions for tourist and
sportsmen rank well with many of
the west's best known recreation
centers, In that connection help the
fishing nnd the now hntchery, help
got more nnd bettor roads nnd trnlls,
Let us, In short, keep nwnke and
tnko advantage of our opportunities

And this is not carping criticism,
but frlondly suggestion, to a business
partner. Further, It Is based on ob
