a virtue, aud with the consent of the
agent of the O. R. A N. Co. at Hood
Hiver, we beg to recite the following:
Last Thursday there arrived at Hood
River S.000 pound ot groceries for the
Little White Store, and on Friday
morning we sent a team after them,
arriving at the station about 8:30 a. in.,
and It was 8 p. ni. tiefore w could get
any of Iberu, and then succeeded In
getting only part of them, and the
good we failed to get were the ones
most needed. Tbe trouble lie In the
fact that the business of tbe nation
ha Increased far beyond the facilities
for haudling it. The agent seem to
be doing everything In bis power to
serve the publio right, but finds it Im
possible to do so. Saturday, when I
requested that he put ou a force of
men sufficient to move tbe plied up
