The Dalles editors are calling
each other very hard tiamesjust
now. The failure of water, from
some cause, during the recent fires
there seems to be the bone of con
tention. Roys, you should not be
naughty, but that the city should
provide water facilities in case of
fire is a fact that needs no argument.
Last Thursday's issue of the
Oregonian was an expression of
western enterprise highly com.
mendable. The truth is that the
Oregonian is a magnificent metro
politan newspaper, the character
of its news of the world is .solid,
reliable and unacnsational. Its
editorial columns treat ably upon
a greater variety of subjects than
any other paper in the United
States. t '

: and Hon. Binger Hermann, of Ore
gon, are great friends. If Mr.
Mills is elected speaker of the
House of Representatives, which
he will be, then Mr. Hermann will
get such a position upon tho com
mittees which will be quite advant
ageoimto Oregon. It is a good
thing to be on good terms with the
whole world, and especially with
the Texans right now.
The man who attempts to floor
Jerry Simpson, when he is "doing
the oratorical" attempts tho impos
sible. For instance, the other day
Simpson, in one of his speeches,
while eulogizing Daniel Webster,
referred, in complimentary terms,
to his dictionary. A friend on the
stage pulled Simpson's coat-tail,
and whispered: "Noah was the
man who made the dictionary."
Simpson gave his friend a scornful
look and whiHpered back: "Noah
built the ark," and went on , with
his oration. ,
This, from the Argmuiut, is worth
repeating till the youth of non-
wealthy parents cease to envy their
"more favored" companions; and
until parents, whether rich or poor,
learn their obligation to supply to
their children that heritage of hon
orable example and instruction
which poor and rich alike can be
stow: "It is nlinost a misfortune to
be reared with the hope of inherit
ing money. It Is (better to have
the moral and iutelcctual surround
ings, the examples and teachings of
honorable parents, than to be reared
in indulgence, idleness and extrav
agance, look lug forward to the death

The last day of the State fair was
well attended. The receipts for the
week were t.VU.50 agaimtt ,..V.-
50 for ISM). The race track re.
eeipta were l18t.(5 against :',
OLD. 50 last year. The 2:22 trot
was won by lUondie in three straight
heats; best time, 8:251. The Ore
gon iVrby was won by Misty Moru
in 2:5tlj. The seelal trot was wou
by Klamath, best time 2:;J0.--i.
It is very strung that with the
prosimrity which good crops' should
inspire, that the actual receipts all
arouud, at the gate of general ad
mission and at the raw track, that
there should be a net falling off of

The heaviest modern ordnance
istho Krimp 410-ton gun- Its
charge is 000 pounds .of tho best
prismatic gun-powder, and the cyl
indrical steel shot weighs 1,800
pounds. At the last test this enor
mous shot penetrated entirely
through compressed armor (steel
faced iron) .twenty inches thick;
then through an iron backing five
inches thick; then it pierced wholly
through twenty feet of oak, five feet
of granite and eleven feet of
hard concrete and three foot into
a brick wall. No existing fortress,
much less armored vessel, could
coirld withstand such a shot. .
The time required for a journey
