TO THE DALLES AND BACK ITEMS
BY THE WAY A STARTLING
Ikdepexdeot: Last week I
took a trip up the Columbia river
on a visit to my old Lome at the
Dalles in Eastern Oregon. I lef
Portland on the 25th ult. at 5 in the
morning on one ot the O. S. N.
Company's boats, and landed at the
Dalles at 3 p. m. Had a pleasant
trip- The officers on this line are
clever, accommodating men. Every
thing is in good style good boats,
good "grub," etc.
landing at the Dalles I took a run
out through town and found that it
has slowly improving. Times are
rather dull there now. I saw a num
ber of the old neighbors, all look
ing well and apparently doing well.
On the 2Cth (Thrnksgiving.) I at
tended religious services at the M.
E. Church, conducted by Itev. Mr.
Butcher, pastor of the Congregation
al i.w.ii ?n fhoi xVIflce. The con-
iU buuivu x
rrreo-ation. to my infinite surprise,
consisted of about 120women and 12
men I suppdse the men thought that
the Apostolic number was all that
was necessary. I thought to myself,
"If the good women of the Dalles
were all to dier Thanksgiving would
Be poorly represented in this place."
But at night this disparity at cnurcn
was fully explained. For there was
a splendid ball at the Umatilla hotel
and I observed that there were about
three men to oue woman there. This
I think is quite a commentary on
the comparative morals oi tne
lords of creation. The ball went on
all night and was conducted in the
best of style.
After Thanksgiving I went out in
the country and found the " grass
starting up nicely, but all kinds of
stock look quite thin, and the peo

winter, notwithstanding they are ex-
There has been a good deal of

ticed several teams in town from the
upper country for freight. During
my stay I observed that the men "in
dulged" quite freely (that is they
make use of lots of the 'critter."
Concluded to return home, and
got on the Opposition line on the
30th ot 5 a. m. The boat was small
but quite comfortable. After steam
ing down the Columbia for some time
a fellow passenger remarked tnat it
was along time getting day. I told
him that the reason of it was be
cause we were traveling west so fast
that daylight had not yet had time
to overtake us. But at last the grey
streaks of dawn began to pierce the
gloom and the shadows crept behind
the beetling crags and towering cliffs.
A bright breezy morning it was up
there where the mountains bend
over the River and the sky bridges
We landed at Portland at G p. m.,
just in time to get the benefit oi an

Increasing Duration of Human Life.
In London, from 1CC0 to 1G79 the
death-rate was 80 in 1,000, while
during the last 34 years throughout
England the average is but 22.4 per
1,000. For a thousand years after
the civilization 6f the Egyptians,the
Jews, the Greeks and the Romans
faded, there was not a man or wo
man inEurope that ever took a bath.
Hence arose tho wondrous epidem
ics of the middle ages, which cut off
one-fourth of the population of Eu
rope the spotted plague, the black
death, the sweating sickness and the
terrible mental epidemics which fol
lowed in their train the dancing
mania, the mewing mania and the
biting mania. Dr. Lyon Playair's
Lecture before the Glasgow Social
Come Love-Love Come.
From the roughneepaie, N. Y. Press.
A pensive young man in Wiscon
sin, while singing '-Come, love,
come," beneath his dukinea's win
dow, the other night,had love, mus
ic, and everything else knocked out
of him by a something in a long
white garment that fell out of a
chamber window. It proved to be
nobody but the girl, who in her anx
iety to know who was serenading
her, leaned too far over the window
sill; hence the result. He says when
he sings "Come, love, come," again,
he will keep away from under the
window, as his system can't stand
many such shocks.

Entirely rewritten by the ablest writers on
every subject. Printed from new tvpe, and
illustrated with Several Thousand Engrav

The work originally pubis lied under the
title of The New American Cycxop.:ia
was completed in 1hi;:J, since which time
the wide circulation which it has attained
in all parts of the United States, and the
signal developments which have taken place
in every branch of science, literature, and
art, have induced the editors and publishers
to submit it to an exact and thorough revis
ion, ami to issue a- new edition entitled
The American Cyclopedia.
Within the last ten years tho progress of
discovery in every department of knowl
edge has made a new work of reference an
The movement of political affairs has kept
pace with the discoveries of science, and
their fruitful application to the industrial
and useful arts and the convenience and re
finement of Hciallife. Great wars and con
sequent revolutions have occurcd, involv
ing national changes of peculiar moment.
The civil war of our own country, which
was at its height when the last volume of
the old work appeared, has happily leen
ended, and a new course of commercial
and industrial activity has been com
menced. Large accessions to our geographical
knowledge have leen made by the indefati
gable explorersof Africa.
The great political revolutions of the last
decade, with the natural result of the lapse
of time, have brought into public view a
multitude of new men, whose names are in
every one's mouth, and of whose lives every
one is curious to know the particulars.
Great battles have been fought and import
ant sieges maintained, of which the details
are as yet preserved only in the newspa
pers or in the transient publications of the
day, but whi h ought now to take their
place in permanent and authentic hstory.
In ircnariniz the iresent edition for the
press, it has accordingly been the aim of
the editors to bring down the information
to the latest possible dates, and to furnish
dn accurate account of the most recent , dis-
overifL' in science, of every fresh produc
tion in lireiature. and of the latest inven
tions in the practical arts, as well as to give
succinct and original record of the prog
ress of political and historical events.
The work has been beguu alter long and
careful preliminary labor, and with the

have beeen used, but every page has been
printed on new type, forming in fact a new
Cyclopedia, with the same plan ana com
pass as its predecessor, bnt with a far great
er pecuniary expenditure, and with such
improvements m its composition as have
Wen suusested by longer experience and en
I he illustrations which are introduced
for the first time in the present edition have
been added not for the sake of pictorial ef-
lect, out to give greater lucidity and force to
the explanations in the text. They embrace
an urancnes oi science and ot natural histo
ry, and depict the most famous and remark
able features of scenery, architecture, and
art, as well as the various processes of me
chanics mid manufactures. Although in
tended f o rinstruction rather than embellish
ment, no pains have been spared to insure
their artistic excellence; the cost of their
execution is enormous, and it is believed
they will find a welcome reception as an ad
mirable feature of the Cycloptedio, and
worthy of its high character.
