sion. The doctor is temporarily located
at the European House. . '
The fishermen report the salmon to be
coming a little better, but there is
nothing like a run.; When the water
falls there will undoubtedly be a good
catch as the amount reported at Astoria

There is' some talk of the Third regi

' River during one of the summer months.
Nothing has been definitely settled how
ever. ' . Hood River would be an ideal
place to hold anencampment, bat we
doubt whether the finances of the state
will permit any encampment this year.
Such an occasion would, be of great ben

A -young son of Mr. Henry Williams,
who livs8 on 8-Mile, was seriously and
perhaps fatally injured yesterday after
noon : near Deschutes. The man was
on horseback hunting stock. The horse
stumbled and. fell throwing the young
man underneath in such a way that the
pommel of the saddle struck him in the
abdomen. The injured man was taken
to the home of Will CuBhing and a
physician hurriedly summoned. The
doctor made him as easy as possible and
it is to be hoped that no fatal results
will attend the young man's accident.

AT ST. MARY'S ACADEMY.
Exhibition of Student' Work Held In
tn Building---A Fine Exhibit.'
A Chronicle reporter visited St.
Mary's Academy this afternoon to see
the exhibit of the students' work for the
past year. The well-arranged building
was devoted to specimens of skill in the
different branches of knowledge. In the
two large rooms on the right of the ball
was placed the work that bad been
chosen to go on exhibition as the best.
Long tables, covered with neatly-written
examination papers, told of atten
tive, industrious "scholars and hours of
study. On the walls were hung paint
ing in oil and water colon that bore evi
dence of much skill on the part of the
artist. Some delicate samples of needle
work attracted much attention from the
One of the most interesting portion of
the exhibit was the work done by the
boys of St. Joseph's school little lads
ranging 9 to 12 years of age. The speci
mens were all very creditable, and
showed a talent that would have done
credit to persons of maturer age. The
boys had been given subjects upon
which tbey were to write compositions;
bat, anlike most compositions; the sub
jects were required to be illustrated.
The reporter recognized a well-drawn
likeness of Father Bronsgeest, executed
by a lad of eleven years. A picture of
Pope Pius IX was also very creditable
to the young "artists. Some of the com
positions were written on such subjects
as the new cruisers of our government,
and on each paper was drawn a picture
of the particular subject about which the
paper was written. "
Among the exhibits particularly no
ticed were a crayon of two dogs' heads,
by Miss Katie Quaid and some drawn
fancy work by Miss Cassie Thorbourn.
The pictures in oil by Mrs. Baldwin in
cluded the "Cascade in Alps, "The
Three Sisters" and several other very
pretty paintaings. Miss Downing from
Condon, Gilliam county, bad a picture
of Castle Rock and one also of Mt.
Adams, which showed much skill and
training on the part of the young artist.
Upon a table were 'some carefully pre
pared Herbariums by Alma Scbanno,
Agnes LeDuc, Cassie Thorbourri and
Ada Smith. The flowers were arranged
with much taste. Especially fine were
the botanical specimens. ' Over one hun
dred and thirty had been prepared, bat
the limited room allowed only a small
number to be shown. The different
pieces will be taken to Montreal, Canada,
for exhibition as soon as the commence,
ment exercises are over.
lbe examination papers in all the
different subjects which the students are
taught, were placed on exhibition
They were wonderfully neat. One thing
that especially commended itself was the
requiring of the different subjects to be
illustrated. ' In physiology one of the
questions was upon the structure of the
ear and on each paper was drawn a pic
ture of the ear, showing on the part of
the students a perfect comprehension of
what they bad studied. In other portions
of the room were exhibitions of pen
drawing, painting on tapestry,' Roman
embroidery, point lace, crochet work
and studies from nature. - Some papers
in the theoretical ' music - showed how
thorough a course the student in that art
must take. - ' .
The St. Mary's school has had a very
prosperous year, considering the bard
times, and th. outlook is very bright.
In the girls' department there have been
twenty-eight boarders, and large num.
bers of day scholars, while in the St.
Joseph school for boys there have been
over fifty in attendance. At the com
mencement exercises, which , wilt '"oc
cur on June 14th, three young ladies
will graduate. The prospective ones are
Misses Alma- Scbanno, Cassie . Tbor
bonrne and Agnes Le Due.
A visit to this school, which is a pride
and ornament to. the city, will well re-.
pay any one who will go either tomor
row afternoon or Mondav.
