The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
A SCHOOL LAW AMENDMENT.
A law was passed by the last legisla
tion that will put an end to the difficulty
that many school districts experienced
last year in dealing with the snrplns left
over and not used for school purposes
lnring the year in which the , appropria
tion was made. It wilL be remembered
that an act was passed in the session of
1889 making it compulsory for the school
districte to use all the monies coming
into their hand from the state and
county fund during the year of its dis
tribution. The law has been so amended
that all monies so left over and not used
are to be returned to the county treasur
er and the same shall be added to the
school funds on hand and be redistribued
to the various districts of the county.
The law is eminently proper. It will
stop the turning of school districts into
private banking institutions and insure
the use of each years appropriation for
the purjKise for which it was intended
during the year of its distribution. The
poorer districts will not suffer by the
new law. As a rule thev could always
profitably use more money than they re
ceive and if the richer districts do not
from any causy ho use up the yearly ap
propriation the poorer ones during the
following year will reap the benefit of it
in the re-distribution.
It is a mistake to suppose that the
lynching of the eleven Italians in New
Orleans the other day was the result of
a national prejudice against the people
of Italy. It was nothing of the kind.
Some there are no doubt who are nar
row and small minded enough to hate a
man because of his nationality but they
are so insignificent both in members and
intelligence that like all other excep
tions they only prove the rule. An It
alian is as good as any other man, when
he is as good and not otherwise. The
same is true of men of every other na
tionality. The intelligence and worth
of the American nation never blames a
man because of his foreign birth. A na
tion of people, the majority of whom are
only one or two removes from a foreign
ancestory cannot afford to be so snob
bish. The only real American is the
American Indian . We are all foreigners.
No country on earth ever disgraced any
"body; but thousands have disgraced
their country ; and this is emphatically
true of those eleven bloody cut throats
whom the righteous wrath of offended
justice would not suffer to any longer to
polute the earth.
A dispatch from Washington dated
March 17th, informs us of a decision
made by Secretary Noble under the new
public land act of March 3, 1891, which
ia of considerable importance to the peo
ple of this and adjoining counties. The
case involves the right to cut timber
from the public lands, when the timber
m cur, is ior one-s own personal use.
"Cyrus P. Rawson of Bishop, California,
'was charged with unlawfully cutting
747,000 feet of lumber from public lands
in that state. The record showed that
Rawson has used 580,000 feet manu
factured into lumber, for improving his
own ranches, by building barns, houses,
fencing etc., and that the remaining
167,000 feet had been sold to others.
Rawson had made a proposition to pay
the government for the lumber he had
sold but contended that he was entitled
to what he had cut for his own use.
Secretary Noble sustained the view of
The dignified countv court of Preston
county, West Virginia, was somewhat
astonished the other dav, when James
Carroll, a prominent although illiterate
fanner, presented a petition signed by
250 of his acquaintances and friends,
praying that he be hanged and that the
oay be speedily appointed for the event.
It turned out that Carroll was a road
surveyor who desired to resign, and
asked Dr. James Cox to draw up a paper
to that effect. Cox knowing that Carroll
- could not read drew up a petition praying
for the farmer's hanging, and awaited
curiously to see how many people would
sign it without knowing what they were
doing. ' . ;
; Not long ago in London a preacher
indulged in a bit of sarcasm over a small
collection, and he. did it very neatly I
"When I look at the congregation." said
he, "I ask where are the poor? and
when I look at the collection I ask,
where are the rich?" That London
preacher muA be a distant relation of
, Dean Swift, who is said to have preached
the briefest begging sermon ever heard:
He took for his text these words : "He
that giveth to the poor, lendeth to the
Lord" and looking around upon his
congregation said : "You have heard
the conditions ; if you are satisfied with
the security, down with the dust."

In the province of Holstein, noted for
its superior breed of cattle, the country
people are not only very thrifty but ex
ceedingly fond of their cows, as may be
gathered from the following characteris
tic story :
Fanner Jan was walking sadly down
the road one day when the village pas
tor met him.
"Why so sad, Farmer Jan?" said the
"Ah, 1 have a sad errand, pastor,"

pasture, and I am on my way to tell
'A hard task, Jan."
"Indeed it is. But I shall break it to
"How will you do that?"
"I shall tell him first that it is his
mother who is dead ; and then, having
opened the way for sadder news still, I
shall tell him that it is not his mother,
but the cow !"

In a paper before the Royal Statistical
society Sir Charles Dilke showed that
the armies of the British Empire includ
ing tne torces oi India and colonies, cost
$177,500,000 a year. The German army
costs about $167,500,000, and the French
about $140,000,000. Furnishing these
vast sums is what keeps the producing
classes in Europe poor. Labor receives
poor pay on this account too. In Amer
ica there is no standing army and the
wages are better for that reason. When
the masters determine that a standing
army is necessary labor will have to foot
tne bill. - - -

If the eyes are the windows of the

which gives a very good new of the
private character every now and then.
There are men the latch string of whose
laughter is always out. They have wide
open, generous laughs, which show a
hearty, whole sonled disposition, with
out : affectations and a readiness to offer
good fellowship to the stranger. Then
there is a laugh which reminds one of
those -new tangled doors to which a
chain is attached, permitting an open

meager glimpse of the person behind the
door. This is the guarded laugh. .It be

Sometimes one runs across a door
which flies open with the slightest pro
vocation. Its catch is defective. Some
people laugh that way. Their laughter
is frequently described as a giggle. The
intellectual furnishings of the character
behind such a laugh are hardly worth
the looking at. although it is the easiest
matter in the world to see them. They
are meager, and invariably have a dis
tressing air of newness which indicates
that they are not often used. Buffalo
Meat That Is Foisosn.
'1 am going to tell you one thing that
is very important, and that is that every
pain which any animal suffers just be
fore dying poisons the meat," said George
T. Angell, president for - the Massachu
setts Society for the Prevention of Cruel
ty tor Animals, in an address to the chil
dren of the Boston public schools and
published in Our Dumb Animals.
"If you wound a bird and don t kill it,
every minute its meat is growing worse.
"If you catch an animal in a steel trap.
every minute it stays there its meat is
growing worse. .....
"Some hunters will not eat the meat of
a deer that has .been run and worried by
dogs, but only of those which have been
killed by what is called still hunting
that is, which are shot and killed, and
so don't suffer much before they die.
And so it is in transportation and
slaughtering all suffering just before
death poisons the meat." '

It is not often that a lawyer receives
other recognition of his services in be
half of a client than a retainer and fee.
The feeling of most when they get
through with a member of the legal fra
ternity is more akin to sorrow than
gratitude. A Court street attorney has
had a contrary experience. ' One of his
clients, an Irish woman, who had been
indicted several times, but never con
victed," dropped in on him with a pres
ent. It was a handsome silk muffler.
"But you've already paid me, Mary,"
said the lawyer. "Kivir mind, nor," she
replied, "but tuck it around your foine
throat an' kape your tongue glib, for 1
may nade thim agin." Boston Traveler.
