Klamath Falls," said Bishop Mc

Naturally, I discounted some of the

much as I admiro a spirit of loyalty,
cnthusiasn and publicity for any
community, I generally find on ex
amination that It Is frequently over
done. The most surprising thing
about Klamath Falls to me is that
the reverse is true. I can see that
you have every reason to advance
tho claims made for this city, and
I shall not be surprised if every
ono of them is realized. Even to a
stranger, tho great potential re
sources of this section are in evi
