The lateness of the summer seisen
having precluded even a thought ol May
day picnics this year, the officers and
teachers of the Methodist Sunday school
conceived the Idea of giving the mem-
I bers of the school an indoor picnic, and
they were invited to meet in the base'
I ment of the church last evening for a
general good time. The children were
delighted and few places were vacant
when the hour for their arrival was at
hand. A short time was spent In sing
ing the favorite songs and prayer was
offered by the pastor. Then the classes
were divided into sections, each teacher
taking his or her place as captain. For
an hour or so suitable games were
played and the children were supreme
ly happy, Joining heartily in everything
suggested. They were then treated to
light refreshments and each con
cluded that an indoor picnic could be
enjoyed almost as much as the outdoor

The body of Hollister D. McGuire,
who was drowned in the Umpqia river,

Geo. Thompson was very unfortunate
Saturday evening and met with an acci
dent which will probably lay him up for
a few weeks at least. While standing
on a ladder putting eome iron beams in
the Waeco warehouse, the ladder broke
and he fell, spraining his ankle severely.
He was taken to his home in an express
wagon and the men bad to carry him in
to the bouse. Mr. Thompson baa had
more than bis share of accidents and
sickness of late, and has been confined
to the bouse most of the time.
Some time ago a visitor to our city bad
the temerity to criticise the appearance
of our postoffice building, and suggested
that we clean it up a little. The cap fit
and we put it on and the cobwebs were
swept from its skies and it was otberwiee
improved in appearance. It is now
time for another visitor to appear and
suggest that the "show" windows of
which it might be said "dust thou art,"
be relieved of their decorations by a
shower bath, which would make the
office appear somewhat more attractive
to not only the visitors within its walls,
but our home people, who are compelled
to gaze on them daily.
This week is the last of another pnbl'c
school year, and on Friday night at the
Vogt exercises will be given by the
various grades of the school, the High
school excepted. An admission of 15
cents will be chatged, and, judging from
the appreciation shown in other years,
the hall will no doubt be crowded.
Saturday night the graduating exercises
ill occur at the same place, with an
admission of 10 cents at the door. The
following will be graduated : Martha
Baldwin, Harriet Cram, Harry Curtis,
Nettie Fredden, Grace Hobson, Hester
Kent, Lena Liebe, Ivan Oakea, Clyde
Riddell, George Ruch, Martha School
ing, Lena Thompson, Ena Uren, Martha

Two Castle Rock boys have struck a
plan for making money, which to them
seems a veritable Klondike. Two weeks

Umatilla, taking with them pack horses

coyote. On reaching the end of their
journey they found they had captured
sixty-five coyotes, for which scalps they
will receive $2 a piece, so the boys con
sider their plan a paying one and in
tend to try again.

RINULINQ BROS.' GREAT SHOW.

TLe appearance of Ringling Brothers
famous World's Greatest Shows in Th
Dalles, Saturday, June 10th, will be the
biggest amusement event of the season.
Ringling Bros.' circus is the leading
arenic Institution in the world, and at
.!?' from this great show is equivalent
to bringing au international fx position
to the doors of the people. Since last
season the show has been tremendously
enlarged in every department, while the
discriminating work of the show's army
of foreign agents is evidenced by the as
sembling of the most remarkable com
pany of high-salaried, sensational artists
every seen with an arenic exhibition.
Among the world-famous aerialists are
the wonderful Fishor family, the great
est of all great mid-air evolutionists;
Mile. Tumour, the peerless equilibrist,
and Alro, Boise and l ickard, emperors
of the aerial bars. The marvelous Da
Comas head the company of unequaled
acrobats. Mine. Ada Custello and her
wonderful trained horse, Jupiter, are
striking features of the International
display of high cla;e horses. Ia tba.
riding section, which is remarkable for
large number of equestrians of world
wide fame, Albert Crandall reaches the
limit of novelty by a burlesquo riding
act upon a mule. The clow ns are. num
erous, and what is better, they are funny.
The trained animal portion of the pro
gram Is a complete show itself. Lock
hart's elephant comedies, a company of
animal actors which presents the moat
laughable plays and farces with the In
telligence of human players, create a
sensation everywhere. Herr Sonder's
elephant brass band Is equally as re
markable. Marchaud's pugilistic .ele
phants are also wonderful in their way.
Sunlin's performing bull is an illustra
tion of what can be done with this usual
ly intractable domestic animal. As an
inBtance of trained animal intelligence,
however, even the elephant comedians
are surpassed by the intellectual qual
ities displayed by O'Brien's equesenr
riculum, a great company of sixty-one
beautiful horses, which pose, pirouette,
form living equine pictures, climb un
assisted to lofty pyramids, and perform
many other astonishing movements, all
within the narrow area of a single ring,
and all in uniBon, tinder the direction of
one man. The introductory spectacle,
"The Last Days of the Century," is a
beautiful patriotic divertisement; the
hippodrome races are as thrillingly con
tested as were the sensational events o'
the ancient Roman arena; ttie menage
rie is a superb collection of rare wild
animals, and the parade which ushers
in circus day is the most magnificent
spectacle ever seen upon the streets of
any city in the world.
