tinue throughout all of September.
Heretofore every person who came to
Oregon had but one objective point—
Portland. The reason for this was that
they knew no other. They went to the
depot to buy a ticket and asked the ad-

The question has been raised as to the
adv isibility of taking the liHiid to Sacra
mento. This should be dour. There
are few things that this county could do
that would attract so much attention
as the band boys. It is an organisation
that any community should be proud of.
If they go to Sacramento they will do
mote to advertise this county than any
other one thing. The boys are willing
to give their time and their services
without costing a nick!«*. all they ask 1»
that their railroad fare bo paid. This
is a small item and they should Is- “sent

The people here want to make such a

Relative to the funds to defray the ex-

the amount is 2’> cents or |25. This is a

accodingly everyone should contribute
