Double Train To
Wallowa County
La Grande Stir Gives Rumors of Im
proved Service On This
"One of the mo3t encouraging ru
mors afloat in railroad circles recent
ly Is that there is to be a double
train service started soon in Wal
lowa county," says Tuesday's La
urande Star, "According to the new
schedule, if it materializes, one train
Is to leave in the morning and re
turn that evening, while the other
leaves In the aftsrnoon and returns
in the morning.
"It is reported that the new sched
ule will provide for a Sunday train,
thus accommodaine the large num
ber of people who de3lre to take
Sunday excursions into the Wallowa,
one of the most beautiful valleys to
be found in the United States. Many
are eager to have the pleasant trip
up the Minam, and up the Wallowa
river, but on the present schedule
two days are required for the trip.
"The increase In traffic from the
prosperous Walova makes this ex
tra train service vary desirable now.
The outcoming of people is very
large, and Is rapl lly growing larger,
and the business re'.a'.lons that they
have with Union county are exten
sive. Thus from every point all quar
ters the report of the new service
is hailed with delight."
The hay buyers contracted for 2500
tons of hay at Lo3tine and vicinity
last week at prices ranging from
?.:.(- in the field, and up. There is
a banner crop of hay in the Middle
Valley this year.
