A remarkable coincidence, which may
be of interest to believers in telepathy
and other kindred occult services, is to
be noted in connection with the recent
destruction of the Fulton cottage at Sea
side. On that night the members of the
Fulton family were alarmed by a strange
sense of smoke prevading their
entire residence in the city.
The odor was so marked and distinct
that the ladies of the family became
alarmed and Insisted upon a thorough
examination by Mr. Fulton of the entire
premises, which, of coarse, failed to dis
close any fire. Strange as It may seem,
this was a veritable occurrence, and be
lievers in the mysterious can make as
much or little of it a they please. As
Pague's snow did not arrive until late
today. Tomorrow he promises us fair
weather; continued colder. We are hav
ing winter on the installment plan, and
the river is again blocked at Crate's
point. From present indication and
the amount of floating ice In the river,
we will soon be able to cross on the ice
here. Report ay that the thermometer
range between 8 and 16 along the
Snake. There are two inches of ice in
the locks, and the Dalles City did not
attempt to make the trip from Portland
today. Hungry Harbor is the favorite
winter resort, and there Is quite a fleet
in that quarter at present, the ferry boat
joining the other craft this morning.
Great interest was manlfeated last
night in the fate of the big candle,

monopolized by one woman." Another
one says: "Why how delicioua to kiss
such a hero." And still another: "The
men are jealous, that's what' the mat
ter. Just because they can't get the
same." So we may expect a visit from
Hobson soon ; but perhaps it would be
well to inform the Webfoot girl that
there' nothing selfish about Eastern
Oregon girls, and they can monopolize
tbe general kisser. Besides its not
kisstomary in Eastern Oregon to send
abroad for heros ; each girl has one of
her own in this part of the state. We
sympathize with Hobson, for we believe
It takes more courage to face some of the
mouth he ha encountered in tbe past
few months, than it did to face all the
cannon' mouth he ran across in bat
tle. However, pity is not akin to love
in this case, and the Portland girls can
(end for him if they wish. Dalles girl
ay they take no stock in such a pro
miscuoua osculator, and would rather
"carry arms" than he compelled to fall
in line in the kissing march.

Tbe midwinter course of popular lec

promises to be of great assistance to the
farmers of Oregon. Fruit growing will

It behove everyone to use every pre
caution to prevent au attack of the
grippe, which is now making it appear
ance not only in the cities, but in every
hamlet, village and town. Not in any
light manner does it grip the victim, but
its effects are fatal. In Tacoma two
deaths from this disease are reported
since the first of the year, and the city
physicians predict an extensive rage of
the disease. So far we have heard of no
case in this city, but an ounce of pre
vention is worth a pound of cure.
