THE FUTURE OF THE DALLES.
If one-fourth of the projects that are
announced as about to happen in The
Dalles in the near future should ever
materialize, then this city is now on the
eve of the most prosperous times she has
ever experienced. A people's line of
boats plying between this city and the
Cascades in connection with the portage
ruiinay win uinurc; vucap uviguio
low passeugor rates and will attract a
r i --- 211 s i . .. r .A
arreater number of visitors besides in
creasing the importance of this section
as a great shipping and distributing
point. Already the surveyors are in the
field, locating the contemplated railroad
between The Dalles and the Fossil coal
mines.- If this road should be built ft I
will be of immense benefit, not only to
this city but to the fine stretch of agri
cultural country through which it will
traverse. As at present contemplated
it will touch Dufur, tap the Tygh Ridge
country and dropping down Into Tygh
valley, by way of Jordon creek, cross the
Deschutes near the mouth of Bake Oven
canyon. Apart from the coal mines
altogether such a road willl undoubtedly
command such an amount of local cus
tom in the line of timber, wood, grain,
wool farm produce and paflbnger traffic
as ought to make it a paying investment
trom the start. 1 he road would corner
immense benefits upon the country
through which it would pass. - Its en
tire stretch for many miles on each side
of the track is naturally tributary to The
Dalles and will remain so for many years
to come. It will tap the very best agri
cultural section in Eastern - Oregon.
A large acreage now unprofitable be
cause of . its distance . from market
but of great fertility will be
opened up to settlement and .cultiva
tion. Wool and pelts and hides that
have now to be hauled on wagons -from
one to two hundred miles can be brought
here at less than half the expense to the
producer. The vast track of timberless
country east of the Deschuttes can be
supplied with wood and lumber from the
Cascade mountains at greatly reduced
cost. The supplies needed for many
thousand of square miles would be ship
ped thither from The Dalles, and every
man whose interests are within the lim
its of the road, and who has anything to
sell or anything to buy would be bene
fitted. While nothing seems to be definitely
known of the projects of the company
with reference to moving back the shops
to this place, it does seem certain that
some such change is in conteplation. It
may to that the wish is the father of the
thought. It is certain that a transfer of
14 acres of land to the west of the city
has been made to the O. K. & NI Co.,
'and the deed is now on file for recftrd in
the County Clerks office, while' a new
Addition to the town in the same neigh
borhood has been surveyed and staked
off. The projectors of the new town site
-are no mere land boomers, but men of
conservative opinions and habits, and it
is to be presumed they know what they
are about. Whatever may be the out
come all these movements forebode no
to evil The Dalles and some of them are
boundto materilize to her advantage.
SPARE THE GAME.
We have been requested to publish
the following provisions of ' the .game
laws of this state and to add that the
Rod and Gun Club of this city will
make it their business to' see that any
breach of these laws that may come
under their notice will be punished to
the fullest extent :
. Section 1. It shall be unlawful for
any person or persons hereafter to- take,
kill injure or destroy, or to pursue with
' the intent to take, kill, injure or destroy,
or to have in possession or offer - for sale
any deer during the month of February,
March. April, May and June, or any
moose or elk during the months of
February, March, April, May and-June
during each year, under a penalty . of
twenty dollars for the first offense and
double that sum for each succeeding
Sec. 2. It shall be unlawful for any
person or persons hereafter to take, kill,
destroy or injure, or to have in posses
sion or oner for sale any . wild Bwan or
any duck of the- following species.
namely: mallard duck,..: summer
or wood duck, widgeon . duck,
-. A ! J 1 .A , J 1
eprig luli uuck, teai vuuut, epuuu
bill duck, or black duck, during the
months of April, May, June and July of
Sec. .4. It shall be unlawful for any
.person or persons to take, kill, destroy
, or injure, or to have in possession or
offer for sale, any grouse, pheasant or
sage ben during the months April, May
and prior to the loth day of June of each
year, aud it snail De .nniawiui ior any
person hereafter to take, kill, destroy or
injure or wj iittvta m uboccdiuii vuw
for sale, anv prairie chicken during the
months of ilarch, April, May and June
of eactryear. .
The. penalty for the violation any oi
the" provisions of sections 2 and 4 is a
fine of fiye dollars for the first offense
and double that sum for each succeeding
offense. It is provided however, that
persons may kill deer, elk or any other
game for their own consumption.; It
ought to be remembered that "to catch,
kill, or have in possession, sell or offer
for sale any mountain or brook trout
during the mouths of November, Dec
ember, January, February and March"
is a misdemeanor and leaves the culprit
liable to a fine of ten to three hundred
dollars, or imprisonment from five days
to three months. - The time during
which trout can be caught without
breach of the law will not commence till
the first of April. Meanwhile, the lads
who have already commenced to fish in
these parts had . better look out for the
Rod and Gun Club. ' t
No banker or land boomer . under
heaven is dictating the policy of. this
journal." But if they did they are just as
likely to be on the right side of a question
as is the subservient tool of a corporation
which has just renewed his annual pass.
If our contemporary wants the proof that
the Union Pacific has bougJu hia subserv
iency by a pass he can have it by continu
ing . to , nag at the Chronicle.
The Chronicle, once-for all warns the
gentleman "to away from here." We
want no tight with him.

A Strange Cane of Mistaken Identity. .
Joseph 'Rowe, a" well-known farmer
living eight miles south of the city, is the
possessor of a cow that has by its strange
actions attracted the attention : of the
neighborhood and caused much com
ment. heveral weeks ago the cow gave
birth to a call, which uvea but a couple
of days. Since the death of the calf the
mother has taken a strange fancy for the
fourteen-year-old son of Rowe, and her
actions toward the boy are such that
thev leave but little doubt that she re
gards him as her offspring. Whenever
the bov appears in the field she is sure'
to run after him and fondle him just as j
she would a young calf, and no one can
do anything with the dumb creature.
save the doyv The other day young
Rowe had occasion to coin'e to town and
when he returned home it was late in
the evening and past the milking hour.
His little sister attempted to supply his
place, and dressing up in the garb of her
brother went out in the cow lot to do the
milking. The disguise, was such,, that
the cow failed to note anything wrong.
and the girl was getting alone swim
mingly until the cow discovered the boy
coming up the road from the city leading
to his home. . With one bound she made
for her supposed calf,-and her. manifesta
tions of delight at seeing him was bevond
description... In hei efforts to get at the
boy, she kicked over the girl and the milk
pail. ,The case is a remarkable one.. The
way the creature takes on over the boy
is truly pathetic, and .illustrates the
great love a dumb animal bears toward
its offspring. Walla Walla Journal. ,
Is Disease a Punishment. . .
The following advertisement.pnblished
by a prominent western patent medicine
house would indicate that they regard
disease as a punishment for sin :

jlo you wian to Know me quickest
way to cure a severe cold? We will tell
you.; To cure -a cold quickly, it must be
treated:: before the cold has -become
settled in the system. This can always be
done if you choose to, as nature in her
kindness to man gives - timely warning
and plainly tells you in nature's way,
that as a punishment for some in discre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless vou choose to .ward - it-off bv
prompt action. . The first symptoms of a
com, m most cases, is a ary , loua - cougn
and sneezing. The cough is soon followed
by a profuse watery expectoration and
tlie sneezing by a profuse -watery ns-.
charge from the nose." In severe cases
there is a thin ; white coating -on ' the
tongue. What to do? It is only necessary
to take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
in double doses every . hour. . That will
greatly lessen the severity .-, of the cold
and in most cases w .11 effectually count
eract it, and cure what would have been :
a severe cold within one or two, days
time. --Try, it ' and be convinced.'.'--. 50

. Several gentlemen from different states,
were discussing the merits of their par
ticular homes, '.'Kansas is a great state.
We raise sixty- bushels of corn," said a
man from Kansas, -"and 200 - bushels of
potatoes to the acre." "But have, you
Kansas people any market for your pro
duce?" , asked a man from Connecticut.
"Certainly they have,", remarked an en
vious Texan : : "they raise enough grass
hoppers and potato-bugs to eat ' up ten
times the corn and potatoes they can
raise." . ' .
Both branches of the Kansas legisla
ture have passed a bill to prohibit non
resident alien land-holding in that state.
It is a movement which is likely to spread
especially after the completion of the
census tabulations shows the' amount of
land held by alien non-residents.
ANOTHER FLOOD IN 9,000 YEARS.
A Prediction That the Ocean Will Rub.
. merge the Northern Continent. ,
The map of the. world, as geographers
have outlined it, shows that there is a
vast preponderance of land north of the
equator. Humboldt estimated that Asia
stands at an average height of -1,150 feet
above the level of the ocean; Sonth
America., 1,130; North America, ' 750;
Europe, 670 feet. The average height of
all - the land - above the sea level omit
ting Africa and Australia, which are
mostly sooth of the equator is about
920 feet. The landed surface of the
northern hemisphere is about 44,000,000
square miles;, that of the southern hemi
sphere about 14,000,000 to 16,000,000
square miles, leaving a difference of say
28,000,000 square miles of land of an av
erage height of 920 feet above the sea
level. ' . -
But as there is the same visible excess
of water un the southern side that there
is of land on the northern, and as the
depth of the seas is about the same, it
follows that the weight of the excess of
submerged, land in the northern hemis
phere must be added to the 28,000,000
square miles, doubling the height of it,
making the landed surface of the north
ern at least 1,840 feet above the average
surface of the southern hemisphere, both
its continents and ocean depths. What
is there south of the equator to balance
this enormous weight? There mut be
something or the earth would not feuun-1
tain its poise.:
If there was nothing, water level in
that region would be impossible.'. Pro
fessor Merriman believed that the bal
ancing weight might be found in that
8,000,000 square miles of unexplored re
gion lying within the antarctic circle. If
it does exist there in the shape of ice, as
all scientists believe it does, these im
mense mountains of ice must necessarily
be of an average of over two and. a. half
miles to make the southern hemisphere
equal in weight to the northern.
But this state of things cannot always
exist.' At present the' sun lingers eight
days longer in the northern than it does in
the southern hemisphere. . This is owing
to the earth's third motion, that of a slow
wabbling on its axis., This caused it to
approach nearest the sun. on Dec. 21,
1248,. and it will approach equally near
on July 21 of the year 11748. - We of the
northern hemisphere will then be in the
midst of a terrible winter, providing the
whole of the land north tt the equator
has not been submerged; but there is
good reason for believing that North
America, Europe and Asia win then all
be under water.
" This terrible' catastrophe ' .will be.
brought about in this way: The south
ern hemisphere will then receive 40 per
cent, more heat and light than it does
nov This will melt the great ice ac
cumulations at . the south . pole. -. One
mile of that supposed two and a half . if
melted, would raise the sea level at the
north pole' about 800 feet, at London 250
feet, at New York 200 feet. When ' all
of it should melt the waters would stand
500 feet deep on the top of Lake Superior,
and wash the base of. the Rocky mount
ains throughout their entire length. St.

Mr. Fergus, who has the old woodcut
of Gen.- Grant, has another and curious
memento of other days.: ft is -a printer's
stick, which was presented to Jdx. Fer
gus when he was at work at the case in
London.: . It differs from the stick used
by printers of the present day in that it
is not' so deep' by nearly one-half, and
can be broken so that two measures can
be "set" in it at once. . It was used in
setting, type for. bookwork. ,
. ."I brought it to this country with me,"
said Mr. Fergus, "and one day I missed
it.4 I went around among' some of the
offices, and one' night T found it On the
case of a German printer.' - I told him
it- was my stick and he gave it np. 1,
