It is s satisfaction to feel that ot.ee
more we are to have a good band in The
Dalles. No city or town, large or small",
ahould be without s band. Somehow it
"livens np things a bit." The Com
mercial Club band has started oat in

we need; but we understand has de

well for the moral "tone" of our band.
Prof. Tollman, the well known mag
netic healer, has been recognized by the
public of The Dalles as a thorough man
in hypnotism, ventriloquism and science.
Prof. Pollmnn gave an exhibition at the
Baldwin opera bouse May 18th, which
a crand success and showed the
rare ability of his marvelous work.:
Therefore, the Prof, is requested by the .
citizens of the Dalles to give another

The breaking waves dashed high as
the grntU zephyrs fanned the bosom of
the Columbia this afternoon, and she
bids fair to reach the required mark by
tomorrow-28 fict. This afternoon she
stood at 20.2, having risen about a foot

There Is much agitation in our city at
present regarding the organization of s
humane society, many recent occur
rences having shown the necessity for
such a society being started at once. It
wonld hardly teem possible that in
place of such refinement and with , such
people as claim residence here that such
s state of affairs should exist ; but never
theless we must plead guilty to the
charge of allowing instances of cruelty to
go unpunished which In many places

He served for a time as government

Despite Pagues 28-mark prediction,
the river here stood persistently at the
27 notch all day yefterday and today,
with a fall of .5 at Lewiston ; a rise of 2.2
at Wenatchee ; rise of 2 feet at North
port, and of .0 at Umatilla. It is slight

Snake and the rivers west from Pasco
will remain almost stationary.

Episcopal church last night in a body
for the purpose of listening to a memo

who took as his text the words of St.
Paul, "I have fought a good fight."
Taking the stand that the wars in which
our brave soldiers have fought were just,
and could not have been honorably
averted, he enlarged on their results
and the good which baa come out of
them, drawing from his text many les
sons for all, and especially encoursging
to the heroes who listened to him. The
music of the evening was especially

River and Dalles nines. However, for a
time, the excursionists thought their
anticipations were to be dashed to
pieces by the waves of tho Columbia,

and other circumstances combining to
retard their progress, the steamer found
itself stuck on the sand just below the
Umatilla House. Finally calling the
ferry boat to its aid she was soon on her
way down the river. Landing at Hood

committee which took them in hand and
made the hours very pleasant until din
ner time when they were served with
a spread at the Mt. Hood hotel. A hack
