AVEDNESDAY, SEPT. 12, 1888.
Tke TrtlSfd Dogt.
Last night was a fine time for a
large number of children, and nomo
"children of older growth," at the
opera house. Trof. Norris had his
astonishing troupe of twenty-five
highly trained dogs. The intelli
gence they display is really akin to
the human. They would stand up
on their hind legs and walk as erect
as a biped, and two, dressed up,
admirably personated a daady and
lady of fashion, the latter walking,
sitting and being wheeled by an
other dog in a carriage. They leap
ed through hoops covered with
paper or blazing with fire, through
long baskets, and leaped from a
spring board over astonishing
heights and lengths. Some rolled
barrels across the stage sometimes
standing on their hind feet some
times "wrong end up" during the
performance. The greatest feat,
however, was to see Fritz, the king
of dogs, plckouton blocksany num
ber anyone asked for, and to go
down to the audience and look at J.
F. Brown's watch, and return to
the stage and indicate the time
by picking up the block 9:40, which
Mr. Brown declared to be exactly
The Flag Hoisted.
According to announcement, latit
evening the republicans of Salem
raised by fur the largest and most
handsome flag yet thrown to the
breeze. On the immense breadth of
-tars and stripes are large portraits
of Harrison and Morton, two on
each side. It is suspended diagon
ally across Commercial street at the
intersection of State, from a pole
erected for the purpose at Halllwell's
siloon, across to Murphy's block.
It can be seen afar on either of the
main thoroughfares. Geo. H. Bur
nett, Joe Howard, Jap Minto and
A. J. Basey managed the raising
and led the cheers. The intention
is to leave the flag in Its present po
sition until the election of those
whose portrait it bears, as the re
publicans feci confident that next
November will seo that an accom
lhf IlltnnUl Report.
State Printer Frank C. Baker yes
terday Informed a Joiuinai. reporter
that work on the biennial reports of
-tate olllcers will begin In his olllce
on the first of October. All olllcers
or others who have reports to make
are requested by Mr. Baker to have
their copy In as soon as possible after
that date. Mr. Baker is very desir
ous of having the reports ready for
the legislature before the tenth day
of the session. He will bo pleased
to call upon those having reports to
nuke, if they want any information
in regard to the printing. Theofilcc
will also shirt In on the uniform
school blanks and county superin
tendents' registers, as soon as the
copy receives the final revision of
John Grifiith and W. n. Parry,
driving behind a gay and festive
horse lost night, had a runaway, ow
ing to the animal's being scared by
a bicycle. Though both occupants
were thrown rather violently from
the buggy, Griffith first and Parry
later, no bones were broken. Had
it proved fatal, where would have
been the flag "pome" of W. II. P.?
See what the literary world nearly
missed ! The gallant attempt to
top the horse by means of the whip,
will do to go along with the account
of the valiant chase of midnight
robbers sometime ago.

In many large gatherings of peo
ple a reception committee is found
very useful. Strangers are welcom
ed, suitably introduced and made to
feel at home. Enquiries are an
swered, nnd information imparted.
It would be an admirable thing if
some well-to-do, well acquainted and
leisurely icopIe could act with
out salarv. of course when strang
ers who would prove desirable resi
dents, come to our city. But that
would bo too much to expect.
It is true that the hack drivers,
hotel keepers and real estate men are
as clever and persuasive as men well
could be. And they are often Indis
pensable. But tho newcomers very
naturally feel that perhaps only
business motives animate these peo
ple. They think it is not so much a
matter of friendship or good will as
of dollars aud cents.
The suggestion Is, therefore, here
tendered, without a cent being
charred for the ml vice, that each
and every person Interested in the
prosperity of our own city, be a com
mittee of one to extend some eourte-
sv to visitors who come to we tho
place, aud that a little pains be
taken to welcome them and show
thorn about our city, its Institutions
aud advantages. Anyone who has
gone to a new place knows what a '
r.ic.Li-alila Itimrutlnll tWttllO UllttX-

that kind makes. AH wlw are any
