OUR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
A Wide Hue of HlatllM.-Th Teachera
and Their Legation.
TIib public ichouli nr full to over
flowing thii year, ud application ha

accommodation of the large number de
siring admission.. The residents of the
eastern portion of the bluff, embracing
Thompson' addition, are desirous of
tiavinj: a school bouse similar to the one
at the head of Union street.
The management of the schools lias
been very efficient, both the directors
and the teachers co-operating heartily to
the desired end. The schools comprise
eight grades and the ranee of studies is
a wide one, extending from the primary
charts to the senior year, which in

Each grade represents one year's
work, and .when practicable is divided
into two classes. Certificates are given
at the completion of the full course.
Visitors are cordially welcomed at all
times and their inspection is desired.

Gat the Wrong Mm.
Officer Quintan, of the Third-street
fqnud, saw a man acting in a moat
peculiar manner this morning near Mor
rison street. The fellow was dancing
sort of wierd jig, and gesticulating in
violent manner. His tongue seemed to
work at the wromr end as the officer
collared him. "It's a dom foine jag yer
hev on ye ; kom wid me," said Captain
Quintan. The prisoner acted as though
be was a contortionist and came near
wriggling awav from the officer, when
barber near by stepped up and informed
the officer that the fellow bad the St,
Vitus' dance, and the latter was released.
The officer, in a puziled manner, asked
the barber "fwhere the divil did that
moo get his whosky?" Dispatch.
THE PLAYFUL LIGHTNING.
The Wallowa Valley.
A private letter received from (Dalles;
Jady who is visiting in Wallowa valley
rgives this interesting extract from a des
cription of a ride through that beautiful
"We arrived at LaGrande about noon
and were afraid the Elgin train had gone
at the regular time, but it bad waited,
so we rode across the valley through big
iarms and orchards on a rough road and
" in -a. rattling car. We were the only
passengers, except one old man. After
leaving Elgin we stopped after ithe de
scent of an awful bill at Wallowa bridge,
where the two mountain streams Wal
Jowa .iiid Minam unite. At 7:30 next
-morning we started and at noon camped
at Wallowa store where we ate dinner
- SDcroumied by a lot of Indians, mounted
and driving a band of horses. They
were a wild looking lot of people. All
bad guns and cartridge bells, fine blank
ets and many papooses. The ride that
morning was the prettiest for nine miles
up a canyon with the Grande Ronde
river at oim side and the mountains high
on either side of us. At 4 p. m. we
came out of the dry canyons into the
xnost beautiful valley. Enterprise was
jiiear and seven miles across was Joseph.
Dehind Joseph were the lovely Blue
mountains covered with enow half way
down. The old chief's headquarters were
in the mountains back of the town of
Joseph. The cun was low and the
houses of Joeepb were white and the
town looked like a nest of white eggs
away oft. Wallowa Lake, which I have
heard described, lies two miles back of
Joseph, a lake of crystal clear water in
the deep timber. From boats, when
the light is propitious, trees can be seen
away down in the water, standing as
they grew. We hope to take a ride
there before going borne. This is a
most deligbful place. Jnst a piece of
the dark blue snow capped mountains

of ground between the bare hills, and
these bills are dotted with cattle,
bands are driven past as this is cattle
selling time. Coyotes bowl at night on
tue near inns, lhe elevation here is
6,000 feet and the air like that of Cloud
Cap Inn. We have had ice every morn
ing and the air is very cold at night."
Two East l'ortlanriers Have
Charles E. Fields, the East Portland
real estate man, and Dan Jackson, the
popular liveryman of the other side of
the river, had an experience, a day or
two ago, which neither of thorn is anx
ious to have repeated.
They were coming from Albany by
team, and were in the bills south of
Salem Tuesday afternoon during the
heavy rain storm. The conversation
had turned on storms in the East.
Jackson bad been telling Bbout a man
and a horse being struck by lightning
and instantly killed, somewhere in
Pennsylvania several years ago. Charlie
had recounted several stories hinging on
the freaks of lightning in Wisconsin,
and Jackson had just remarked that it
was seldom lightning was seen in this
country, when suddenly both were.
blinded by a flush ; the horses dropped
on their knees, and Jackson's hat fall
ing off caught on his eyes, which pro
truded far enough to catch it.
The stroke had evidently fallen in
close proximitv to them, and, while
blinded by the lightning, neither men
nor horses were severelv shocked. Both
men admit they were just a little fright
ened at their narrow escape, and they
had driven a mile and a balf before
either Bpoke a word after the narrow
escape. this was the nrst anu oniy
lightning flash they saw during the
storm, and neither of them told any
more stories of terrible storms on the
trip home. Telegram.

a Tlaa ".uee;aeted la Hava a Fruit Vom
paay ef Our Own.
The exi erience of our fruit growers
with the Earl Fruit company this year
war far from satisfactory. They lealiied
less for their products than without
their aid. The reason appears to be be
cause of excessive charges incidental to
loading and shipping.
If a fruit growers' association is such a
beneficial organization why would it not
be a good plan to have one of our own,
and save these foreign profits for our
selves? A buildingcould easily be found
on First street at almost a nominal rent,
which would answer all the purposes ot
a cold storage warehouse, besides sup
plying an otllee room and packing rooms.
A side track could easily lie laid.
Correspondence should be opened with
Chicago, New York, Denver, St. Louis,
Helena, Spokane Falls, Tacoma, Seattle,
etc., and all buttiness could be transacted
with as good results as are enjoyed by
any other fruitcompany. It would save
delay, save money and save annoyance.
Then there is something in not being
subject to the dictation of a foreign
agent, some pleasure in handling our
own fruit to the best advantage, anu
some pride in transacting our own bus
iness. The tendency of the aye is for or
ganization and those classes who do not
are apt to be left behind in the raco.
Tiik Ciikonu'i.k will lie pleased to hoar
from our fruit growers on this important
subject and will give space to any one
who would like to see such an organization.

The special train carrying the mem

at one o'clock today. The train was
niade up of four passenger coaches and
two baggage cars, in charge of Conduc

Mr. Geo. P. Morgan, who wai in town

told, of 400 men working at the locks.
A large share of these are working in

which showed everything from the egg

Salem now has an ordinance that ef
fectually shuts out all peddlers. Those

of Perrydale, drew the body of a man

We have just learned of two farmers
in Oregon wbo were on a trade. One

The trial of G. W. Manville, for the
murder of J. S. McCabe a few months
ago, has resulted in a verdict of murder
in the second degree. The two ran ad
joining ranches and had a dispute over
a division fence. Manville said that
McCabe was stealing bis rails to repair
the fence and one morning went down
to see about it, taking bis shotgun with
him. He saw McCabe also with a shot
gun, and the former gave the latter a
charge in the stomach.
Chief Peo, a Umatilla reservation
brave, is the happy possessor of a pri

and can supply himself with "fire-water"
without taking the trouble of bunting
up a white man who is willing to
shoulder the responsibility of bartering
whisky to Indians. Whether or not Peo
supplies bis dusky brethren with the
"ardent" our informant does not state.

There has no doubt been more lives of
