their meats, that it is useless for me to introduce
Wood Bros., our successors, as. their 18 years in
the butcher business in, Wasco county has made

necessary. Being honest, capable business men,
they have the means and ability to rwn a business .

credit to our city. .; '
I expect to stay with the new firm for awhile,
