msures us a nieo fresh stock
at all times, to select from.
When you want any goods
look through Montague's
ma nj moth stock, price his
soods and b convinced that
this establishment is up with
the times. And here iu Leb
anon yrvu. can get goods just
as low asyoji can in any town
in tho Slatd of Oregon.
It is to the interest of every
person to ; patronize their
homo mercltants. The fact is,
a town without merchants
wouhl bo a very singular one
in any country, and yet every
town Is blessed (?) with a few
people who always work
against their own and their
neighbors' interests L- advo
cating some other place as a
better one than their own to
do their trading in. Ixjbanon
is not entire ly exempt from
those who (kight to bo loyal to
and work for the upbuilding
of their city, but who are uii
fortunattlv quite tho, reverse.
Much capital has already been
driven away from Iichanon by
this "course, and many con
templated enterprises that
would have enhanced values
in this vicinity have been
abandoned through the ma
lign inlluence of chronic
cranks. Let us all work to
gether for our own homes and
our own people1, and the day
is not dictant when we will
have as prorj -erou.j an inland
town as there is in this- State.
Merchants here in every line
will sell you goods as low as
tlioy can be sold anywhere.
They aro always with you to
help to assist in every public
enterprise. Montague voices
the senlTnient of the mercun-
KHe community of Lebanon
I when he savs that he will sell
you anything that you want
from his mammoth etock at
the lowest living rates. His
stock is a very large one, and
tho goods must be sold. Drop
in and be convinced. There
is no good logic in building up
other cities at our own ex
fne farming community
understand ihcir own interests
well, and th-ry know that to
make tneir land valuable anel
sought after by buyers a good
prosperous town in their
vicinity is just tho thing to
attract newcomers, and they
almost universally patronize
their homo towns. Our inter
ests are identical. Let our
motto be, "Home against the
AVo make mens', boys' and
children's clothing a special
ty. Our spring stock is now
arriving ; call in aud examine
them. Tho low price of wool
last year has so reduced the
price of alothing that a good
suit is now within tho reach
of every one.

TO THOSE WHO OWE ME
I must insist on full pay
ment being made by those in
debted to me within the next
thirty davs, as I cannot wait
longer. A word to tho wise is
sufficient : I Lave no timo U
send personal duns, and
need tho money now.
