Yesterday The Dalles actually waked
up to the fact that small-poi was in the
country and began to look about lor a
case or two. A man by the name of
Bonner, who wat visiting at the resi
dence of C. W. Bailee was the suspect.
When the marshal, physician, a council
man and a few others had Investigated
It proved that the follow had been down
to visit his sister at Vancouver, where
there is no sign of the disease; but the
children had chlckenpox and he was
sick there with a slight attack, bnt had
fully recovered never having had to stay
In the house a day alnre tin rani back.
Home one had reported to Councilman
Stephens that the man had had some
thing of the kind and he at once looked
the matter np, w hich was a commend
able move, and shows that oar council
men are made of the right material.
While the country about us hat such a
disease In Its mld.it, too much precaution
cannot be used.
K. It. Wilton evidently realiv.es that
Dalles people have an artistic taste and
has chosen that channel by which to
call their attention to the road w hich
lie claims Is not excelled by any other,
except it might be the "straight and
narrow" road, and we actually believe
he thinks the latter parallels Ms line,
lie has hung In a very conspicuous
place on one of the windows at the
I'mutlUa House, a beautiful painting on
glass of a largo engine pulling a number
of cars over the C. H. A (J. line, and
running at the rats of eighty miles an
hour. It was enlarged from a 4iU kodak
picture taken by a Mr. Lovett, of Coun
cil llluiri, Iowa. Twenty photographers
(professionals and amateurs) had en
deavored to "snap" the train, but failed,
and It remained for Mr. Lovett to sectue
It. The colorings ara beautiful and It
would make a pretty ornament tor any
parlor. If this, enhanced by K. It 's
persuasive arguments, dues not increase
the luterest whirl) Dalles people already
take in that popular road, then will
all else fall.

This morning A. K. Roberts shipped
7 W sheep by boat to Trouldale.
We learn that a Moro man with a
severe case of "Flllpino-eniallchickeu-pox,"
Is quarantined at Wamlc, and we
hope our neighbor will keep the case
well guarded; fur whatever the di cease
it we don't want it. Dufur Dispatch.
As the Irishman would say, there Is
no doubt that the case of chlckenpox
at Wasco is the genuine smallpox, and
of no light nature either. Saturday
evening it was reported that Mr. Hicks
was dying; but yesterday ha rallied, and
today there are hopea of his recovery.
II. F. Gilford left this morning for the
scene of construction of the portage road,
on the Washington side, and In a tew
days those who may still have doubts
concerning the genuineness of the road,
may be convinced by views taken at the
scene of proceedings.
No, the fine looking range in Maler A
llenton's window Is not an ornament, It
Is the real thing, lo other woids an
alumuiied Garland steel range. It is to
be given away on March 1st, and every
one who purchases 1 worth of goods
between now and that time will be given
a chance on it.

F'lour is now worth J 10 a barrel in
llurn. This Is the highest price ever
obtained fur that staple In our town. It
Is really nutrageous. This commodity
Is something that merchants never ex
pect to realize but a very small profit
from. Ten cents a sack satisfies all
reasonable dealers. It is not good
business management to make a corner
on such an articlo. We trust to see the
price reduced to something near the
actual cost of delivery here. Harney
This being the week of prayer, ser

The bowling tournament season
opened at Astoria Saturday afternoon,
and from two to ten sett of gtuiies w ill
be bowled in the three contests sched
uled, each wefk, until February 2'ith.
A team from The Dalles will play the
Milnea at Salem Thursday, Y. M. C.
A. at I'urtland Friday, rind the Astoriuns
Saturday. Next week, Thursday, the
Salemites will play our team at the club
alleys. Speaking of the games the Ore
goninntayt: "Howlers are freely pre
dicting that the Feldenheimer cup wiil
go either to The Dallet or Illihee, with a
shade of probability In lavor of the
former. The contests, however, will be
exceedingly close, and If a resort to total
plus to decide Is necessary, nobody will
be surprised. The Dalles claims lo tie
short one or two of their best men, but
the same state ol afr.iirs has existed be
fore and the team has alwavs been able
to give opposing teams all they went to
do and has usually pulled out on top.
There seems to be something In the air
at The Dalles that makes the propaga
tion of good bowlers an easy task."
As Is usual, but few attnledihn meet

A telephone message from Hood liiver
this morning announced the sudden
death of Dr. V. G. Barrett at that place
last evening. He had apparently been
well, ami upon returning from the
stable, where he bad been to attend to
some chores, fell dead. No particulars
could be obtained, other than that word
had been sent to hit brother and no
arrangements would be made for burial
ontll he It heard from. He was a
brother of l'rof. Barrett, who was a
teacher In The Dalles schools some years
since, but who now resides at Baker,
and was alto an old and much re
spected resident of Hood I'.iver.
Mrs. Kdlih Wetherred psssed through

of Kastern Oregon. The object of her
visit wat to secure samples cf ore to he

editorial association at New Orleans and
distributed among the editors, tlrut ad
vertising our mines. She made a tour
of the mines adjacent to Sumpter, and
was most successful In her efforts, each
mine vying with the other in contribut
ing the choicest samples. These will he
neatiy placed In small boxes, labeled
and forwarded to New Orleans, where
they wiil be distributed by the delegates.
Dufur seems to be somewhat skeptical
regarding the scheme of Dalles people
lo build a road into tho interior. Well,
we acknowledge it may not look bright,
but we can say this much, that in Xhe
presence of the reporter a few days since
a gentleman, who is fully able to make
his word good, said the n oney wat
forthcoming for the survey, and if it
were not, it should be made if he had lo
pay for it. The state of the weather at
present Is not such as to mske it sn easy
matter to secure surveyors. Wrli the
feasibility of the scheme assured, the
road, we believe, will be a go. Speaking
ot the rurvey now U-ing made out in
that section, the Dispatch ad Js : "Dufur
would sooner be connected directly with
The Dalles by railroad, hut if any per
son of that city will rouse himself
enough to drive out on any rot 1 leading
In this direction for a distance cf five
miles he wiil cease to blame Dufnriles
for being pleased at the probability of a
railroad connecting ut. w ith any market."
Thenter-goers are pining to hear a

In answer to several inquiries we will

Thus Mr. and Mrs. Thompson's visit has
been attended by much sorrow, but at
the same time it is a satisfaction to know
that their presence has been a comfort
lo those who are called upon to mourn.
Frank D. Jones, who is charged with
larceny of a horse from D. J. Cooper, is
having a preliminary examination In
Justice Bayard's court today. It seems
that Junes, who lives on 5-Mile, went
over to Aug. I.jngrein's and claimed
the horse, which was at bis place, and
took possession of it. Later he came
into the Chkonhi.e office and adver
tised it as a stray. It is now claimed
it was his intention to steal tbe animal.
The young man has not the appearance
of one a ho would commit a theft, but

Saturday night regarding tho lefunding

refund the entire :5,(HX) bonds. While
one or two of Ue commissjon were
previously undecided regarding the
matter, the entire cjinmisaion coincided
at last night's meeting. It was further
decided that the expense ot the issuance
of bonds will be borne by the com
mission. Though few, if any, citizens outside of

yet none are ignorant ot every feature of

who is thoroughly interested in every

It is the intention ofTiiK Cunosicis
to give the news at as early an hour as
possible, sod to ecdeavor to overlook
nothing which is of Interest to its
readers. Reporters, however, are far
from infallible, and, as Cradlebaugh
would say , not having been born triplets,
it is impossible to be in more than
one place at a time. We, therefore,
ueglec'.ed to report a very impressive
service which took place at the Congre
gational church last Sunday, and al
though a week has passed we ft el it to
be such an important event in the his
tory of that congregation, that a men
tion of it is not out of place even at this
late hour. We refer to the presenta
tion of the flag to the church.
Through the efforts of Mrs. W. S.
Myers, a beautiful flag was procured
and Sunday evening appointed as the
occasion for the presentation ceremony,
F". W. Wilton being chosen to make the
presentation speech. In a short, but
very appropriate manner, that young
gentleman delivered into Mr. B. S.
Huntington's hands, who reptesented
the trustees, the "Stars and Stripes,"
among other things saying that it is
fitting that we bring to our church,
where we have all that is uplifting and
good, the emblem of our liberty, the
Stars and Stripes. Mr. Hunt ngton's
remarks of acceptance were very ap
proves, giving as a reason why the
Congregational church should peculiarly
value our flag the fact that Congre
gationalism, w hich was called independ
ence in the old country, did not flourish
evi n nnder so mild a monnrcliic.il gov
ernment a New Kngland. Thfy went
to Holland; but ultimately landed on
