Charles Tvtinehain, the genial and pop

Threadbare, who played the mandolins
with very pretty effect. These young
gentlemen ate abundantly possessed of
unusual talent, and judging from the
comments heard last evening, should
they appear in pnblic they would be
given a hearty reception.
The meeting of the order of Eastern
Star last evening was a ehort one, and
emerged into a reception in honor of one
of iis members, Mrs. Levi Clark, who
will soon leave to make her home in
Hood River. One of their famous ban
quets was served, and the arrangement
of the tables was particularly novel ana
pretty, being so placed as to form a star,
each point of which was decorated in
the various colors blue, red, yellow and

those taken by Moore, of Portland, and
which are to be hung up in the Regula
tor. They are 18x22 inches in size, and
are so perfectly clear and real that every
leaf of the foliage and every waterfall
would seem to be standing out in dis
tinct view. One of Oneonta Gorge is
particularly fine, as is also that of the
falls at the Cascades. They are perfect.
The mystery of the valise which was
found along the river bank a Ehort ways
below the city about a week ago, has
been solved. It was feared that investi
gation might disclose something very
sensational a drowning or like disaster;
but it lias proven a simple case of theft.
A young lady who came up from White
Salmon about a month ago placed her
valise In the hall at a private residence
in the city, from which place it was
stolen. This morning the valise and
contents were identified ; but a man's
hat which was taken at the same time
was not among the articles found. The
tramp or whoever stole it, finding there
was nothing in the valise which would
be of value to him, cached it among the
rocks on the river bank by way of get
ting rid of it and covering bis crime.
Mrs. General Maud B. Booth, wife of

Otis Patterson left on the afternoon
train for Portland to attend the annual
"MyBtic Banquet" to be given by the

This is always a gieat event among the
members of this order.
During these uncertain times of the
war and the anxiety felt by relatives of
the soldier boy, many cablegrams would
be sent to the scene of action were it
not for the expense thus incurred. It is
said that every word sent to Manila
costs 2. i7. One youngman well known
in The Dalle, sent a cablegram from
Manila to bis mother in New York
which co't $32.
A meeting of the teacheis of the
public school will be held at 4 o'clock to
day, when arrangements will be made for
their trip to Dufur Saturday. Convey,
ancis have been engaged and will leave
here at 8 o'clock. The fadics of Dufur
will serve lunch at the school house up
on their arrival, and in the afternoon
the program will be carried out. Any
one interested in the educational meet
ing, and who may deslro to go, may do
soby informing Supt. Gilbert tomorrow.
The Portland Rolling Mills Company
has purchased the wreck of tho ship
(;lenmorag, which has lain high and
dry on the shore at Long Beach, Wash.,
since March. M'O. Sojourners at that
point Ihi summer will therefore be
entertained with the inht ' 'le gradual
demolition of the big bulk, which will
be taken apart and sent to Portland, to
suit? At least let the
begin its consideration.
raiiroad from.as far as The Dalles there
is a vast number of men making their
way to Huntington, or rather to the
scene of construction operations on the
line of the Northwest Railway, expecting
to get work. Some are beating their
way on the O. R. & N. while others are
tramping it, with camping outfit and
bedding on their backs. At Meacham
Sunday, there were a hundr. d or more,
with here and there a gei.uine hobo
sandwiched in. The Northwest Rail
way company bag advertised for 1,000
laborers and at the rate they are coming
the ranks will soon be filled. Baker
Another evidence of the artistic taste
of Ernest Jensen is given in the arrange
ment of the Easter window at A. M
illiams' store. At one end of the
window he has placed an old fashioned
tomb made of white bunting with purple
trimming. The gates are ajar and iu
siue may ne seen a large faster egg
drawn by six beautiful white doves and
driven by an angel, who holds the silken
reins. In the mouth of one of the
doves is a green spray, betokening the
coming of spring. The sky is studded
with stars, while the remainder of the
window Is draped ln dainty summer
goods. It is a clever device representing
the opening of spring, and is also very
pretty to the view.
Much distress has been caused among
the relatives of the boys now facing the
bullets at Manila on account of the an
certainty of the names given in the list
of the dead and wounded, and the mis
takes made in the names of the com
panies. No doubt when dispatches are
received and comment is afterward given
in the Portland papers, they depend
somewhat on the official rrster for in
formation, and seeing the same name in
various regiments, often get the names
confused in that manner. Among the
list of the dead given in Monday's Ore
gonian was William W. Cook, of Com
pany L. In the notes below, the initials
were given as William E. Among The
Dalles boys who inliatcd was William
E. Cook, son of Dr. Cock, who lives
some distance in the country, and grand
son of Mrs. Kerrison. What more
natural than that the latter should
think it her boy who was killed, and
the thought almost prostrated her, until
yesterday's Oregonian gave the assur
ance that it was William M. Cook, of
Junction City, a private in Company D.
The suspense in such cases often causes
more pain than the certainty, and we
are ulad for the sake of his relatives that
their fears were unfounded.

that Oregon's woun led soldier boys will
be brought homo from Manila as soon as
possible, em as therH are plenty of

early date. Those able to travel will be
put on immediately. This rule prob
ably applies to those who are seriously
injured, and those who will be unable to

will cheer many an achinar heart which
is saddened by the thought of loved

has arrived in Portland just after the
Southern Pacific train has left, and
there has apparently been no effort to
make a connection. This, so it is sup
posed, was due to the natural desire on
the part of the O. R. & N. management
to encourage traffic via their steamer

the National Guard of the state, in
various capacities, for several years. In
1890 he was appointed first lieutenant
and signal officer of the Third regiment.
In 1691 he was made major of the same
regiment, which place he resigned in
1890. He wes soon appointed first lieu

Mr. Byara proposes to at once Increase
