From La Grande Observer.
The football boys who returned
last evening from Joseph, cannot find
a sufficient number of adjectives to
show their appreciation of the royal
entertainment they received from the
Joseph people. In fact, they received
a royal welcome at every point along
the line, and received invitations for
games, from every town. No one had
better knock Wallowa county in the
presence of these boys.

W. H. Graves of the Woolgrowers
Warehouse company received a tele
gram Monday from General Superin

change of site requested for the fire

up as quickly as possible. ;
The new site ii immediately west

will be on the west line of Depot

high gravel bed and makes an ideal
site with perfect drainage.

high. It will be built of stone and
be fireproof throughout. Nearly all

ed in time to store the wool next
spring for the wool sales day.
