Look Out for the "Little Joker !"
Messrs. McComas & McDaniel, of
XJnion county, have purchased the
exclusive right to sell the ""Little
Joker" Washer, in this county, and
they will soon be in our midst with
what is reccoinmended to be a per
fect Yvr ashing Machine. We know
of no piece of machinery that should
be in more demand than something
that will remove the terrors of wash
day. The "Little Joker" washes by
compressed air, is said to wash with
wonderful rapidity, any child can
use it, clothes are not damaged by
it and it is within the reach of all.
All the- ask is an opportunity to
.show its perfect work, and as for us
we say let 'em come and if it will do
what thev claim for it 'we'll buv one.

the Harney papers up in single

new dress for the News and also
other material and paper, and, of
course, it cost us considerable mon

scribers will not be slow to pay up
their subscription and help us out
in the payment thereof.
We will have to apologize to our
readers for the appearance of the pa
per for a few issues. The warm
weather has demorolizec the roller
and the material for a new one was
not to be had till a few cays ago and
hence, the old one had to be used.
In a few days we will have a new
one out of the moulds and then
well, you can read the News.
Quite a number of our citizens
are anticipating a visit to the Warm
Springs. All you have to do is to
sond word to Mannin & Howe and
they will come after you and bring
you home free of charge. We omit
ted to mention that fact last week.

The Dalles has been flooded for

From The Times.
On Wcdn'sday afti-moon, the large,
two story brick buildimr on the corner
f Fn.nt and Court, belonging to Judge
Savage, fell with a" crash. The build
ing was nearly completed, and would
have been occupied in two or three
weeks had it not been fur the accident.
The loss is estimated at from $3,00l) to
S4,000. Fortunately there wns no one
around at the time. Several causes
have been assigned for the building
falling, but we think the mortar had
notdrii d sufficiency, and the water had
a natural tendency to softtn it, and
caused the brick to fall from their po
sition. The foundation was the first
part to give way, and no doubt that
was caused by the iftening of the
nortar as above stated.
