he ever saw, and we say so too.
The west bound passenger yesterday
came in with all the steps torn off the

caused by a big boulder rolling down be

The first of the suits against the rail
road company was called this morning.
It was that of John Carlson, adminis

deceased. All the morning was spent
in getting a jury which was accomplished
at noon, with the following members :

A young fellow, whose name we with
hold was summarily bounced from the
ball room last night for conduct unbe
coming a gentleman. Arriving on the
street he pulled a pistol and cocked it,
and should have been killed on the spot.
v Any man who will carry a pistol in a
civilized community is a dirty coward,
and, if, added to this, he pulls it in a
crowd, killing is too good for him. The
railroad boys owe it to themselves to
bounce him from the road.
Now that the portage railroad bill
seems in a fair way to become a law our
delegation at Salem should give the water
and charter bills some earnest attention.
We have long since outgrown our present
charter and between the city charter and
the present water bill affairs are decid
edly complicated. It is now shown that
the money in the fund will not be suffi
cient to complete the work and the pass
age of the water bill and new charter is
an absolute necessity if the works are to
iie fiied.

Editor Chronicle: Though Thomp
son's addition failed to get the shoe fac
tory it still offers greater inducements
to home seekers than any place we have
seen, not excepting North Dalles, here
we have a. deep rich soil, an abundance
of the purest water by digging from ten
to forty feet. The surface is practically
level, sloping to the north, while the
river which stretches away to the west
and northwest is unsurpassed for scenic
beauty, the soil is well adapted for rais
ing all kinds of fruits, berries and grapes
without irrigation. -. Some two thousand
trees , mostly Italian prunes have been
set out this last season ; fifteen buildings
have been erected the past year, many
of the lots having been sold to parties
who bought merely to hold for specula
tion. While traveling down Five-mile hill
recently we noticed that it was very
rough, and we thought what a fine time
it would be to fill up the low places and
make the "rough way smooth" while
the ground is moist enough to pack and
while the farmers are idle and have the
time to do it. Call them out Mr. Road
Supervisor and get the . blessings of a
grateful public.
While reading of the grand success of

The Hunt Road.
Parties from the east recently called on
the Northern Pacific management and
settled all of the claims of that company
against George W. Hunt, taking up all
the latter's notes. We learn the above
from reliable authority, who is also
responsible for the statement that work
on the road from Hunt's Junction to
Portland will be commenced in earnest
next month, at or near The Dalles, at
the Junction and at Portland, and that
the work will be crowded as fast as possi
ble. The gentleman who gave us the
above information is now in Mr. Hunt's
employ and expects to be here in charge
of the work inside of a month.

What May Be Patented.
It may be of interest to readers to
know what may be patented. A United
States patent will be granted to any per
son who has invented or discovered any
new and useful art, machine, manufact
ure, or improvement thereof, not known
or used by others in this country, and
not patented or described in any printed
publication in this or any other country,
before his discovery or invention thereof,
and not in public use nor on sale for
more than two years prior to his appli
cation, unless the same is proved to have
been abandoned.
In this connection the word "art"
means the process or method of produc
ing an old or new result. If a method
of doing anything contains one or more
new steps the process is new and patent
able. The word "machine" means any de
vice or thing by means of which a me
chanical result may be produced, such
as a pin, a churn, or a locomotive.
The word "manufacture" means a
made up article, such as furniture, cloth
ing, harness, and the thousands ot things
which are offered for sale.
"Composition of matter" means a
chemical compound of ingredients, such
as hard rubber, liquid glue, medicine,

for three, seven and ten years.
Trademarks may be registered for any
arbitrary sign or symbol which is not
descriptive; the government fee is $25.
Such marks are the exclusive property
of the registrar for thirty years, and the
time may be extended.
A "label" is any descriptive tag, print
or impression to be placed .upon any ar
ticle or its case, and it may be registered
for twenty-eight years. The government
fee for a "label" is $6: but if it contains
any special mark or symbol the office de
cides it to be a trademark instead of a
label. Youth's Companion.
Malleable Olasa.
One of the lost arts, provided it ever
existed, was the malleable glass of the
ancients. The Egyptians and the Phoe
nicians made glass for many early spec
imens remain fully 2,000 years B. C.
In the reign of Tiberius a per; on ap
peared in Rome who claimed that he had
invented inflexible glass. The story
tells that be produced a glass vase.
which he cast on the marble floor with
vehemence, so as to bend it, bnt restored
its shape with a few blows from a ham
mer, and that, at the solicitation of a
mob of artificers, who feared that the
new process might supersede the use of
their vessels of metals, the emperor re
tained the glass vase, but ordered the in
genious artist to be put to death.
Since then two or three other persons
claimed the discovery of a process for
making malleable glass, but nothing
came of it. The art, however, is scarce
ly "lost," for in the glass houses of
Murano, close to Venice, they make
glass plates which can be bent' and
thrown about without breaking, but
will not bear to be hammered. Every
one almost has seen what is called spun
glass, which you can twine round the
finger as if it were silk; but this cannot
be converted by any process into a ves
sel to hold water. Malleable glass is
not a lost, because it has .never been a
found, art. Thomas. J. Bowditch in

A Rare Case.
I found Cant. Miller, of the navy
yard, wreathed in smiles when I saw
him in his office at the Lyceum.
"I have just had an amusing experi
ence,' he remarked. "I am accustomed
to being run down by politicians who
want places for their proteges and by
place seekers themselves. But today,
for the first time in my lifej I have been
waited on by a man who wished to noti
fy me that he had given up his job. He
is from the Sixth Assembly district. New
York, and was employed in the con
stracikm department at $2.50 a day. He
was appointed about three months ago.
in tendering his resignation he said
heeoold do better i private employ
ment at $1.25 than as a government
workman at twice that amount. What
with political assessments, entertaining:
his party friends, parchaseox tickets of
one kind and another, and other pulls on
his parse, he found little of his wages
left for family expenses. I, f course, ac
cepted his resignation, at the same time

She was the president of a 'woman's
club and had just returned from a visit
to the famous "Sorosis." She had been
telling them what questions were dis
cussed and what was the programme of
tne evening. There were a number of
women present, and they had . all been
very much interested.
The president sat down in her chair
and waited for questions. There was a
silence for an instant, and finally a timid
voice from the background said:
"I would like to ask a question. Was
it was it a dressy crowd T"
The president jumped up and said:
"I just want to tell you! Those ladies
all had on the most beautiful bonnets.

Latest Use for the Child's Hair.
When Dotty Dimple has her first thatch
of long curls cropped off her mother
doesn't gather them up one by one as she
used to do, and lay them carefully away
in a long box with an incription some
thing like this on the outside, "Dotty's
curls, cut off when she was 5 years old."
She gathers them up, to be sure, and car
ries them away with her, but the next
day or so she is seen going into a certain
hairdresser's in Twenty-third street,
where a notice prominently displayed in
the window reads, "Dolls' Wigs Made
Here." And Dotty Dimple goes with
her, of course, and carries Rosamond
Arabella or Fifine, or whatever the name
may be of the potential little lady in
bisque. And in a box the mother carries
the curls.
Then the attendant gravely measures
the bisque pate after he has first removed
the shock of flax that covered it, and
looks wise over the box of curls and says,
"Oh, yes, madam, there will be plenty
of them, I think." Madam and Dotty
Dimple go away after a great many lov
ing pats and admonitions, and in a few
days Rosamond Arabella comes home no
longer with the flaxen pate, but wearing
a lovely blonde wig of real hair hair that
curls up about her temples and down her
back just as Dotty Dimple's own does.
And that is just what it is, Dotty Dim

The Appropriated Sleigh Bells in July.
The well filled stores and gaudy shop

"You have some very curious persons

not help overhearing what one of them
said when I entered the room at the club
reception. 'There comes one of 'em,' said
the lady in a tone loud enough for me to
hear distinctly. 'There comes one of
'em; she's English, I know, for English

Use of Ammonia.
In medicine, the solution of ammonia
