The educational facilities of a city are
never complete until within its midst is
an institution of leartnuit w herein young
ladies from a distance may find home
comforts and watchful care while pur
suing their studies. This need is fully
supplied in The Dalles by St, Mary's
Academy, which starts out on this year's
work with very promising prospects.
While almost every one of last year's
pupils have returned, a large number of
new ones have entered, both from the
city and abroad. The increase In the
musical department is particularly
noticable. During the recent vacation
the building underwent repairs, which
add greatly to its facilities In every way.
Among other improvements stone slate
black hoards have been placed In each
recitation room, greatly facilitating the
work. The SUters feel much encouraged
at the outlook for this year.
No doubt many of bis friends in this
city were not aware of the death of a
former prominent citizen of The Dalles
in Spokane last week. We refer to the
late D. M. McLeod, who was buried on
Wednesday of last week at that place
About thiee years ago Mr. McLeod
developed symptoms of consumption,
and later upon the arrival of Dr. Suther
land he began a treatment for the disease,
but too late, for while bis life was pro
longed for perhaps two years, vet be
could not be saved. During most of his
illness, however, he was able to attend
to his real estate business, and was con
fined to his home during his last illness
but four days. Mr. McLeod left The
Dalles in 1889 having been a vcr
popular resident of this city for yea.a
and a member of the firm of Moody &
MeL'oJ. He was also a leading worker
in the Congregational church and super
intendent of the Sunday school.

Thomas Brown, who lives on the old
Ruffuer place on the Mosicr road west
of town, left at this offiefl this morning
two Gloria Mundi apples that weighed
20 ounces each. One measured 14 inches

the storm of a week ago, and were im

who own several mining claims on the

Mrs. Ada Taylor was examined yes

Judge Blakeley and Commissioner
Hamman went to Hood River yester
day where they met Commissioner
Evans and, in response to complaints,
viewed a piece of county road that had
been changed by the O. R. & N. Co. in
their work of improving their road bed.
The court concluded that no damaee
had been done to the public through the
change. They also inspected what is
known as the Rand-Coburg road, where
Mr. Rand wants that part of the road
that goes through bis place closed, and
the part that goes through the Coburg
place left open, and Mr. Coburg wants
the changes in exactly opposite direc
tions. The court concluded that the
brethren would have to settle the diffi
culty between themselves before it felt
justified in taking any action.
A fire occurred in the east Bhow win
dow of C. F. Stephens' dry goods store
about 6 o'clock Saturday night that,
happily, was soon extinguished. It
caught from an electric lamp that ac
cidentally came in contact with a cur
tain in the back part of the window. It
was first seen by a boy on the outside
who gave the alarm and Mr. Stephens
in a few minutes had it under control
The window was dressed with ladies
cloaks and lur collarettes, which were
damaged to the amount of about $125,
The property was fully insured. The
super-heating of the lamp that caused
the fire, by the flames outside, softened
the glass and the vacuum inside drew
in the glass till a dent was lormed larpe
enough to lay one's thumb in. The
lamp was otherwise uninjured and is

making satisfactory progress in arrang

The committee's reception was such
that they feel justified in believing that
this number will be nearly doubled, and
In any event it, will greatly exceed any
thing of the kind The Dalles has ever
had. It is practically settled that the
fair will be held on the two blocks on
Third street lying between Washington
and Laughlin and including the block
between Second and Third streets on
Federal street. The thirteen exhibitors
already obtained are A. M. Williams and

County surveyor J. B. Goit has re
turned from Juniper Flat, where lie
made two surveys, ono from Clear creek
and the other from White river, for the
purpose of determining which is tin
more practicable way to get water for
Irrigating and domestic purposes on the
Flat. The ranchers, who have made up
their minds to do tbe work without ask
ing outside help, finally decided on the
White river route and expect to com
mence operations this fall. It wiil take
nine miles of flume to bung (lie water
on the flat, at an estimated cost of $0000,
or some $50 for each quarter section lo
be benefited. It is calculated to build a
V flume, with three foot sides and a ca
pacity of 1100 miners' inches. The
flume will have a grade of a little less
than an inch to the rod, which will give
a flow of four and a half miles an hour,
These estimates will give each quarter
section to be benefited live miners'
inches of water. The ranchers will erect
a saw mill of their own for the purpose
of getting the lumber utviled for the
flume. They expect in a short time to
have their organization perfected so that
they can accomplish as much work as
possible before winter sets in.
