There was a large attentive audience
at the Christian church last evening to
hear the discourse on the "Baptism of
the Holy Spirit." One could almost
have heard, at any time during the ser
mon of one hour and five minutes, the
historic "pin drops" at the clow of the
sermon. Three of our most substantial
and respected citizens came forward and
confessed their faith in Christ. The
minister will give a lecture this evening
on the subject, "Wanted a man." All
cordially invited to attend.
The young people of The Dalles are
busily preparing for the winter's amuse
ment. The young men have formed a
dancing club of which there are already
twenty-four members and the list will
still be larger. It is expected the first
dance will be given next Wednesday
evening and preparations are under way
to make it a fit opening for the winter's
social season. With good music, a good
floor and good dancers, the devotees of
the goddess Terpsichore will make
merry the hours of the night.

Mr. Fred Patterson, who has been
head waiter at the Columbia house for a
long time, made a misstep while coming
down the stairway this morning and
broke both bones of the leg just above
the ankle. The fracture was attended
to by Dr. I lol lister.

Birds sing beautiful songs, but no bird
can train its notes to resemble a mas
terly gnllop or quickstep. Hence Mr.
Kellogg produces something which is an
absolute creation. Fancy a nightingale
singing "Suwanee River" with varia
tions. Something of this nature may lie
looked for Saturday night.
These times are fruitful in petitions.
Several are being circulated among citi
zens, relative to congressional action on
present issues. One "respectfully prayi
ing thst the present tariff upon im
ported manufactured wools be con
tinued" was numerously signed by dem
ocrats (who wanted a change) and re
publican! who wanted no change but
got one nevertheless. Another relative
to an extension of time in payments for
government land was also extensively
signed by settlers on the land.
Things looked lively around the East
end this morning. Quite a number of
grain wagons were unloading at the
mill and the warehouses. The farmers
will soon be hauling wheat in large
quantities. The Iree ferriage so gen
erously provided by our citizens will be
the means of attracting much wheat
from the Klickitat valley.
His. Men r.rltlnc Out Knelt to ho Crushed
Six nieii are now engaged in getting
out rock for Hie cruslier, ami the inn
chine will he Marli-d up next week. It
was tl.e intention of the council to tiivn
employment to as ninny men with
families as possible who are now out of
work, a commendable action and a very
wise one, since the great utility of the
work to bo done disperses with the
claim of charity. The committee on
streets and public property, comprising
Messrs. Kreft, Lauer and Butts, are very
efficient and aro directing work the
most important since our streets were
graded ftp to a level above high water
mark. It is the intention of the city to
supply crushed rock at all street cross
ings, the bad places in the road between
corners to be filled by the owners of the
lots adjoining. The crushed rock will
be supplied them and the only expense
will be the hauling.
After the city has used the crusher
for a time the county will run it, the
intention being to divide its time
equally between them. The county
commissioners were at great expense
last year in filling up boles In the coun
try roads with manure and straw,
which soon became aa bad as ever.
Now when a bole is filled it is fixed for
ever, and the expense is ended.
The purchase of the rock crusher is
one of the wisest investments ever made.
The money expended on roads yields a
higher return than it could In any other
way and the benefits are immediate. It
saves to the producer lime, money and
horseflesh, and by reducing the cost of
transportation places him at once upon
a footing where prosperity is easily
within his reach, and when the country
people are prosperous, the cities are
bound to be. Given good country roads
and paved city streets no danger need be
apprehended of retrograding, but on the
contrary, progress will be marked and
Howlers for enterprise, note our rock
crusher, and stow your dismal croak ings.
They were very diffident and not all
self-sure when they walked the Regula
tor plank this morning. They were
young and may have been brother and
sister, thougli their actions were more
like the bride and groom of a country
precinct. While he was thoughtful of
her comfort, he was more afraid of doing
something wrong and not acting just
right, under the battery of eyes be felt
sure was directed upon them. Not
wishing to intrude, he kept the lower
deck, and when a truck of freight,
wheeled by s deck hand, came thunder
ing behind them he convulsively drew
his companion aside, and both backed
up against the side of the boat allowing
the load to pass, both blushing as red as
poppies. He was asked why they didn't
go up on the upper dock and this was
the first time it dawned upon him that
he had any right up there. Seizing the
girlish creature by the arm, he hastily
made his way np the companion way
and, upon reaching the; top, again stood
undecided what to do. A lady realizing
their difficulty advised them to go aft
and enter the cabin. He acted upon
the advice, but the prettily varnished
furnishings once more intimidated biiu,
and seeing only ladies present, he left
his charge and went forward again. Just
as the boat started he followed a num
ber of men to the cabin by the stern
wheel, and as the huge boat turned in
mid stream to go down the river, a last
look revealed him standing beside his
companion, and both faces wore such a
look of radiant rapture and contentment
as is seldom vouchsafed this side of
A Disheartened Kyangellat.
Rev. Mr. Aleridge closed his meetings
last night. They were not meeting with
that degree of success for which the gen
tleman had hoped, and becoming dis
couraged he abandoned them. His
final lecture was forcible, eloquent and
entirely spontaneous, while an occa
sional passionate outburst showed that
the speaker waa suffering keenly from
some cause. Whether it was because of
the indifference of the church people to
himself, which he claimed, the battle
with his own appetite for strong drink,
to which he once alluded, or a private
disappointment cannot be known, but
it is palpable that he possesses an im
pressionable disposition, which for him
is unfortunate. Himself whole-souled,
earnest and enthusiastic, craving friend
ship and as ready to give It, he yields
easily to unpleasant circumstances, be
comes disheartened, and cannot conceal
it. If his story of himself is true, and
there ia no occasion to doubt it, he de
serves that credit which cannot be over
estimated in the light of the proverb,
"He who conquers self is greater than
he who taketh a city." Mr. Aleredge
has drank the dregs of lowest degrada
tion, has been the lowest in the social
scale, and his risen again to worth and
respectability. If, as be asys, he has
successfully battled with bis appetite
for twelve years, who among us can
compare with him in firmness of pur
pose and rlgjd adherence to a path
marked out. The ephemeral existence
of the time-honored New Year resolu
tion, which all have tried, is a trivial
thing to what this man has done. He
deserves the hearty support, moral,
social and otherwise of any community
in which he labors, and may the grace of
Cli.d, npon which he relies, preserve
him to the end in sobriety, usefulness
CROPS AND WEATHER.
Fruit. Hny, drain and lrolur Through
The Oregon state weather bureau, in
co-operation with the weather bureau
of the United States department of agri
culture, the central office of which Is in
Portland, has issued the following crop
and weather bulletin for the week end
ing Sept. l'Jth, 18113:
Weather Heavy rains occurred on
the first three days of the week, which
were followed on Thursday and Friday
by light, and in exposed places, killing
frosts. The temperature became much
warmer toward the decline of the week,
averaging 66 degrees. The sunshine
was below the average. All forest fires
have ceased and the air has again bo
come pure, healthful and exhilarating
Crops Farmers in the Columbia and
Walla Walla valleys have not entirely
finished their harvest, and there is con
siderable wheat to thresh in some local
ities. The heavy rains damaged stand
ing grain, also grain shocks; but the
rains were much needed to assist fruit
in maturing and start new growth of
root crops. Vegetables and pastures
are improving. Streams have begun to
flow anew, and stock is reaping the
benefits of the above conditions and im
proving thereby. Farmers are prepared
to enter winter season. Hav is abund
ant. Some farmers are fallowing and
preparing to sow the fall wheat crop.
Owing to the advanced condition of
farm work and maturity of crops, the
weekly crop report will be discontinued
from this date. It will be resumed in
the spring of 1894.
Tha Beauty of Morning.
Those who linger in bed these autumn
mornings, lose some of the creator's best
work. The bracing coolness of the air,
the stillness that is everywhere in the
early morning, are something that the
remainder of the day pannot reproduce.
The sleepy-eyed soon become wide
awake as they drink in the morning air
and gaze on the eun as it rises over the
gorge at the dalles and lights up the
Klickitat bills. The sunshine ' and
shadows on the beautiful mountains
fade into one another in a way that na
ture defies art to reproduce. Mt. Adams
and Mt. Hood pueh their heads through
the clinging clouds and all the valley ia
filled with sunlight. No prettier pic
ture is needed to charm the soul, and it
must have been at The Dulles that
Longfellow stood when he said, "I stood
upon the hills when heaven's wide arch
was glorious with the sun's returning
A Poor Place for the Crasher.
Three blasts were made yesterday on
the cliff above the brewery to get rock
for the crusher. A comparatively small
amount of rock was loosened. A better
location would be somewhere on Fifth
or Sixth, where a street may some time
be opened. It cost the city several
thousand dollars to open up Union
street., which has paid for itself many
times over. Another cut east of there
would be of comparatively equal benefit,
and the beauty of it is, it would cost
nothing. Then, too, the hauling would

The Coming Fair.
Things are not being rushed at the
fair grounds, for there is little to be done
by way of preparation for the coming
fair. The track is in excellent condition
and a few repairs to some of the stands
and tho fence, in places, along the track
seems all that needs to be done. Sev
eral horses are in active training, and
more will arrive continually from now
till fair time. We hope to chronicle a
most successful meeting and that in
spite of hard times, early rains and the
price of wheat Eastern Oregon was able
to rally and have a surpassing exhibition.

a few days ago at Missoula. After con
sideruble iemiaiuti he was induced to
sing into tlm receiver the war chant of

sd that Wind-in-the-Face and his at

what suspiciously thty inserted the
tubes in their ears and waited the result.
As the sounds of the chant that for ages
had Incited their forefathers to battle
reached their cars they were at first
alarmed and muttered something about
"bad machine," but aa the emphatic
tones of their chief coming from the
little wax cylinder rang out the tocsin,
they became enthused and kept time to
the alleged music with feet and bodies
until it seemed as if a war' dance was to
be executed then and there. But they
didn't leave the machine nntil the chant
was ended, and then they almost hugged
each other in their delight, and even at
tempted to embrace Mr. Hartley, to his
terror. They wanted more, and a cylin
der was inserted that gave them "Drill,

mensely, and they laughed as heartily
as an Indian ever laughs, though they
probably didn't understand a word of
the song. They now regard Mr. Hart

adopt him into their tribe. Spokane
An Old Lady of 83 Assaulted..
Susanna Fox is on trial today before
Justice Schutx for assaulting her mother-in-law,
Telito Fox. The Fox family
live on Upper Mill creek, about 14 miles
distant from The Dalles, and consists of
Mr. and Mrs. Fox, Sylvester Fox, a
grown son, and Mrs. Telito Fox, mother
of the husband. At the time of the al
leged assault, all were away from home,
but Susanna Fox, who is 53 years old,
and the old lady, who is 83. Testimony
was to the effect that they had some
words over a domestic matter, when the
younger of the two assaulted and beat
the mother. The old lady has a bruise
on her head and one on her ear, which
it is ulleged she sustained in the scuffle.
The sentiment of those acquainted with
the facts is adverse to the defendant.

Where is the city official whose duty
it is to cut down the thistles? He is de
plorably deficient in performing his
duty in this respect. In many parts of
town the thistle has free license to do
what it will and the result is that the
seeds are scattered everywhere. One
block on Second street and Laughlin is
simply covered with thistles, and every
wind scatters them far and near. The
city ordinance is very plain on this
point. The city marshnl is empowered
to see that the law is enforced and there
can be no possible excuse for the num
ber of thistle weeds that form such
a pest to the town.
The services at the Christian church
were largely attended last evening and
much interest was manifested. The
subject of the sermon was "Wanted, a

things that were needed to make up the
life of man, body, soul and spirit. Upon
the proper development of these essen
tials depended the perfect lifo. He
made comparisons between the old and

religion of the Jews and the Christian
belief. At the close envelopes were cir
