A guest of the Umatilla house sat
down to dinner last Saturday and the
waiter, as usual, came forward and an-
- nounced the menu, beginning with
"split pea soup," but mumbled so that
the guest thought it was speckled trout,
"yes," eaid the guest, "How are they
cooked; I like mine fried." "Sir," said
the waiter, "we don't fry the soup."
. "Oh! pardon me," answered the guest,
J,I thought you eaid speckled trout."
.' There is another case of diphtheria in
this city. This time it is the seven-year-old
eon of Louis Blank. The boy was at
the picnic yesterday and was taken so
ill on the way home that he had to be
carried from the boat up to the house.
He has been, attending the public school
and Director S. B. Adams assures the
Chronicle that the school building will
be fumigated and every precaution taken
to stop the spread of the ' disease. If it
becomes necessary to close the schools,
this will be done.
James B. Teller; a Crook county stock
man, committed suicide in a Kansas
hotel on the 24th of last month. Teller
had gone there with a band of horses.
Shortly after his arrival he fell in love
with a widow, named Mrs. Jennie Box
well, and got married to her. Four
'days after the wedding Teller was a
corpse. During the temporary absence
of his bride Teller had gambled away
' $250 of her money and not daring to face
: her again he took his life. He left a
letter addressed to his wife explaining
why he did the deed and asking her for-
giveness. He aleo requested that she
, , should write to bis sister, Mrs. Belle
Read of Moro, Sherman county, but not

It is no reflection on the hospitality of
the Gesang Verein, picnic to say that
some of the nearly 400 excursionists got
very hungry before lunch time. The air
of the Mosier country is liable to make
a man feel that way anyhow. This was
particularly the case with Julius Fisher
and Shorty Henderson, and their teeth
fairly watered at the sight of a lunch
basket, which they had not the courage
to steal. Meeting Judd Fish they
pointed out the basket and asked him to
help them out. Judd, nothing loth,
' . picked it up, while Shorty, leading the
way into the bush, said "Come on."
Scarcely had they gone twenty yards
' when the owner of the basket met them
and said "If you please, I'll take that
basket. This is the second time today,
it has been stolen." The feeling of the
trio can be better imagined than de
scribed. . The editorial fraternity, and delegates
. ' to the Washington democratic state con-
ventiori at Vancouver, from Eastern
:.- Washington, have been tendered the
'1:- Courtesy of passes by The Dalles, Port-
' , .fend and Astoria Navigation company,
. in order that they may have an .oppor
- v, tunity for gaining such -information as
' may be desirable to enable them to form
an-intelligent idea, by personal observa
, " tion, as to what the state of Oregon haB
done .-and The Dalles, . Portland and
' AytAstoiia Navigation company is doing,
. ior an open river from the Inland Em-
- .Spire to the open sea. This arrangement
was brought about by Mr. Linus Hub
bard, through the request of a Pomeroy
.... gentleman who had received one of the
, The second Eastern Oregon District
Fair Association "will hold their annual
fair this year, commencing on Tuesday
the 11th of October and ending on Sat
urday the 15th. This will be about a
-tnonth later than the date on which the
fair has been held for the past two years
and it is, beyond question, a change that
-ought to make the coming fair the most
successful of any yet . held. The great
trouble with the last two fairs was that
they occurred at a time when the farmers
were busy threshing, or if through with
this . work, were . engaged in hauling
grain, ordinarily, "the throng of this
work will be over by the time fixed for
the present year. . Another change has
been decided on that ought also to con
tribute to the fair's success. No race
horses will be allowed to compete for
premiums, that do not belong to Eastern
-Oregon or to Klickitat county, Wash.
-These changes have been made entirely
in the interest of the fanners and stock
raisers of this district ai d we hope they
will be fully appreciated.

Another splendid rainfall, that seems
to have been quite general, commenced
here at an early hour this morning and
Rontinned till nearly noon. If we don't

Dr. G. C. Eshelman leceived a tele
gram this forenoon from Frank McFar-
land of Heppner, asking him to come up
immediately as his baby was sick. The
doctor left on the one o?clock passenger.
Mr; F. M. Salyer, C. E., of this city,
was today made the recipient of a very
handsome testimonial, certifying to hie
efficiency and expertness in his chosen
field. It comes from his late employers
and associates in Durango, Colorado.
Ayer's Hair Vigor restores natural col
or to the hair, by stimulating a healthy
action of the scalp. This preparation aleo
produces a vigorous growth of the hair,
and gives it a beautiful luster and
youthful appearance. Recommended by
physicians, clergymen, and scientists.
The Warm Springs reservation was
recently visited with an epidemic of
measles and at least as many as 150 cases
were reported. Five or six deaths oc
curred at camps at a distance from the
agency but all the patients under the
care of the agency physician recovered.
Insomnia is fearfully on the increase.

Dr. Hugh Logan will leave on the
midnight passenger tonight to attend a
meeting of the National association of
railway surgeons to be held at Old Point
Comfort, Virginia, on May 25th inst.
On his way the doctor will attend a
meeting of .the Missouri state medical
association. He intends to visit Chicago,
New York and Washington- and will be
gone about a month.
A brass band kas been organized in
the city, and one of the oldest and most
accomplished musicians in the state of
Oregon, who is also a member of it, has
christened it the "Regulator Brass
Band" and the name is going to stick.
The new band has ten members, all ac
complished musicians, and before many
days pass it is expected they will let
themselves be heard on the public
streets. .Success to the Regulator Band !
It is very evident the good people on
the north side of the liver are not par
ticularly stuck on Oregon sheep. John
O'Leary of Rutledge, whose experience
we related in the Chroxiclk a couple of
weeks ago, tried to cross his band of
sheep, a short time ago, over what is
known as Outlet Bridge, on a branch of
the Klickitat river. As the sheep ap
proached the bridge the herder was met
by four masked men who began shoot
ing promiscuously all around them.
The only thing injured, however, was
the shepherd's dogs, a fine animal which
had one of bis legs broken by a pistol
ball. Notices have been stuck up at
several places warning the sheep men
that no sheep will be allowed to pass
and signed "Committee." It is alto
gether likely that Oregon sheepmen who
intend to summer their flocks in Wash
ington are going to get into trouble, and
the above related that they may know
what to expect.

Machinery for a sawmill has arrived

In consequence of the coolness of the
weather and the presence of diphtheria
in The Dalles, the ladies of the Good
Intent have decided to postpone their
excursion one month. Tickets already
sold will be good for the excursion next
month. This announcement is made
bv order of the committee.-'
No case of diphtheria, save one, the
son of Louis Blank ; has been heard of
in the city np to the present, and every
precaution is being taken to keep the
disease from spreading. The Blank boy
is undoubtedly very sick, and no' one
can tell the result. We can only hope
for the best. T - .
The Fire Department of The Dalles is
now so well equipped with conveniences
that it is proposed to have a hose tour
nament here on the 4th of July. Astoria,
Portland, yancouver Oregon City,
Salem, and other departments will be
invited to participate, provided, the sug
gestion fully matures. It would be a
grand idea, as The Dalles is well sup
plied with water and hydrants for an
elegant tournament. '
Miss Hamill, assisted ' by her two
classes in elocution, will give an enter
tainment in the basement of the M. E.
Church this evening. The pupils
have been preparing for this entertain
ment for some time, but on account of
the Court house being engaged for that
evening expected to be compelled to
give it up. Now that the M. E. Church
has been kindly offered, all will have
the opportunity of hearing the rendering
of a first class programme.
Markets have opened actively this
week, all along the line. The . produce
trade looks well for the coming week,
and the merchandise markets are as
sured of good business. The improve
ment for the past two weeks has been
steady, and there is no apparent reason
why it should not continue. - California
green vegetables are out of the market.
Now potatoes are in" good supply and
prices are firm, under a . good demand.
Oregon radishes, lettuce, rhubarb and
green onions are becoming plentiful.
Old potatoes are again scarce, the farm

Capt. John W. Lewis received today
from Col. W. E. McArthur of Washing
tion City, a pair of oyster shells that
measure full seven' inches in length.
This is no fish story. The shells can be
seen in the Chboniclk show window.
In a note accompanying; the shells Col.
McArthur say s : "The scripture saith:
Moses was an Austere man' ; but there
was a merry twinkle in the eyes of black
Moses, who presides at Harvey's raw
oyster counter, when -. I selected that
superb specimen for his Sexton's mani
pulation. But I - believe I long since
wrote you the story and now I repeat as
aforesaid, when I swallowed that treas
ure of an oyster. 'Good bi-valve.' " .
The Willowa Chieftain, referring to
the nomination of Mr. Polk Mays for
representative on the republican ticket,
says : "It was given to Mr. Mays with
out any effort on bis part, and the con
vention could not have - made a better
selection for that important position.
Mr. Mays is thoroughly identified with
our county interests, is one of our heav
iest tax-payers, "is 'conservative in his
views, and correct in bis conclusions. If
he is elected, his vote on all proposed
legislation will be guided by that regard
for right and justice which has ' always
characterized his actions in private life.
The vote for Mr. Mays in the - localities
where he is best known will be alike
complimentary to his worth as a man,
and to the confidence in which his abil
ity is held by the people." ' '

Mr. James Kelly, of Kingsley,- was in
the city today with bis two daughters,
and made a very pleasant visit to Tbk
Cheoniclk, enrolling his name amongst
those of his staunch supporters.
Mr. W. Pierce of Goldendale, has
been in the city for a couple of days ' ar
ranging to supply Dalles builders with
sash, doors and blinds. He is as able
and well qualified to fill all such orders,
as larger men in larger communities.
Messrs. V. Z. and M. J. Clifford, of
California, are here looking for a field in
which to invest. . Otherwise, they are
on a voyage of discovery ; and if they
find Wasco county as we see it they will
become permanently identified with our

- As evidence corroborating the state
ment of Thb Chronicle yesterday, that
the Columbia river had not been dis
covered, np to last night, I. N. Camp

A Kindergarten school would be a fine
thing for The Dalles. All cities have
them ; and now," if some lady, who is
fond of children, and wants to make a
few dollars, will start a school of this
kind, she will confer a lasting benefit
upon posterity. J - --.
When the railway business in the
west reaches a point at which a distrib J
utor receives locomotives by the train,
as was done recently in Buffalo, N. Y.,
and illustrated by the Exprest; then
there will not be ' river front ' at The
Dalles sufficient to accommodate the
water craft. . , Why? Because the rail
way influences will have purchased it
and laid it away for keeps. '

The pleasant weather for the past few
days has given the Astoria railroad con
tractors an opportunity to get everything
in good working order and active work
has commenced. . There are six camps
besides the tunnel outfit, comprising
2,000 men at work on the road and the
clearing gang has nearly ten miles ready
for the graders.
- The Herald says : "R. N. Wright, a
mugwump politician who changes his
politics oftener than he does his shirt, is
heard from through an article in - yester
day's Attorian, written by himself, and
signed Boys of the High School in which
he tries to vindicate himself from the
charge that he is a political scalawag,
unfit to hold his . present - position and
should be removed." '
Six million dollars will be the sum
paid this year, to transpert the grain of
the Inland Empire to a point' where it
can be shipped to the markets of the
world. One year. Wheat alone. Just
think of it; then ask yourself .'Vhat
were such men as Rep. Holman of Indi
ana, born for, if it was not to bleed us
and such as us, that half this sum might
... a . M ...
go into tne cotters ot corporations ana
eventually be divided amongst men Of
his kind?" This is the stubborn fact.
Mr. Wm. Locke, of Washington city,
a gentleman who is here looking after
Uncle Samuel's , real estate interests,
left the railroad and took the Regulator
for Portland this morning. He says that
Blaine has, positively, a better chance
for nomination at Minneapolis, than
any other man in the nation ; that there
is a sentiment among the people which
is irresistible for Blaine for president,
and if he is nominated the nation will
be astounded with the result. There
are millions who want to vote for Blaine
electors, one of whom wo are "which."
There is a level headed man at the
helm in the Pomeroy Independent office.
He says: "With a portage at The
Dalles this rate would be reduced about
one-half and thereby leave $3,000,000 in
the pockets of the people, that now go
into the coffers of the corporations to aid
them in buying our congressmen off
from urging appropriations to open the
river by constructing a portage railway,
as the state of Oregon has done at the
Cascades of the Columbia, and thereby
saved tens of thousands of dollars to the
people on the lower river, whose pro
ducts are not a tithe compared to the
products of the upper Columbia .and
Snake river basins."
The Columbia is swarming with blue
back salmon. They are the finest of
this species ever, seen here, many of
them weighing from eight to ten pounds.
Orders have been received within the
past week for several tons of seines for
catching these flshT TKB"wneel8 at-Tha
Dalles are catching about ten ton per
day, and large quantities are . being re
ceived here from the Cascades and from
down the liver. This is very early .for
the run of blnebacks, about six weeks
earlier than they come last year. They
are excellent fish and considered about
as good for canning as the Chinook. ,
I, W. Flanders, traveler for the well
known proprietory medicine firm of J.
C. Ayer & Co., of Lowell, Mass., was in
the city for the past two days and left
last night for points east. . Mr. Flanders
is a very pleasant gentleman and an ex
cellent conversationalist. He has been
in the employ of the firm for over ten
years, on the wing all the time. His
territory covers the whole northwest
and comprises twelve states and terri
ritorie8. Speaking of the immense busi
ness done by his firm . he informed a
Chronicle representative that a million
a year is spent in advertising their busi
ness. They; will publish "this year
20,000,000 copies of Ayer's almanacs in
no less than thirty different languages.
The press on which the almanacs are
printed turnes out 10,000 copies an hour,
or 80,000 copies in a working day of
eight hours. The printing of the
almanacs for 1893 commenced two
months ago, and even at this enormous
rate of speed will occupy nearly the en
tire remainder" of the year. The firm
sold last year about seventeen tons of
pills, or enough, as Mr. Flanders said,
''to physic the whole nation." They do
business with upward of 40,000 merch
ants located in every nook and corner of
the American ' continent. Their , mail
receipts at headquarters, ' average from
400 to 800 letters a day. It is hardly
necessary to say there's millions in the
