number of years that the reputation
enjoyed by " Grants Pass for superior
retail establishments, and first class
facilities is far ahead of many cities
of greater pretentions. Contributing
to this state or affairs is tne presence
here of many substantial, progressive
and flourishing business houses
managed by able and conservative
business men of the highest honor and
integrity. Among such establishments
we draw particular attention to tnat
institution known as L. A. Lucub &
Son. which since its inception some
four years ago has amassed a trade
entirely satisfactory to its founders.

benefit of a selection from a large
stocs. Harness and saddlery goods
of every description are carried, and
in this line their stock is complete.
