The M. E. Entertainment.
A very enjoyable entertainment, said
to be one of the very best ev.er given in
this city, took place at the M.E. Church
on Wednesday last. J It was in lieu of
DV. Mclnturf's lecture , on Japan. The
entertainment consisted ' of readings,
recitations and music by the choir. Ser
geant Major Riddell presided with be
coming dignity and the efforts of Master
Hugh Frazier, Dottie McFarland, Mr.
D. Parish, and Rev Mr. Brown were
eminently successful. Miss Luella Mc
Farland gave' a ' recitation -- entitled
"Lasca," in a very pleasing manner. It
was full of grace and vivacity and was
indeed charmingly 'given.'"" Miss Waif
Grubbs of Portland gave a .recitation
which was the gem of the evening. Miss

Note and Comment.
While the farmers of Kansas and Neb
raska are repudiating their debts and
bewailing their lot, it is well to call at
tention to the prosperity of some of the
farmers in the Pacific Northwest. Here
is a sample item from the Pomeroy Inde
pendent: "We desire to point out that
one man in Garfield county is doing well.
This year he had a profit from his farm
of 3000 ciean cash. He sold his wheat
last Friday, except 1000 bushels. His
crop of .barley is sufficient to pay all ex
penses of his farm, the 'past year.' The
name of this farmer is George Stallcop,
one of our county commissioners." This
is by no means an exceptional . case;
The exceptional cases in this country
are those farmers who through lack' of
thrift," or by inebriety or wasteful living,
fail not only to be well supplied with the
necessaries of life,' but alBo have some pi
the luxuries. . '
. .: -Looking oat Kew Road.
Emil Shanno and Charley Schmidt re
turned last night ' from" Hood River.
They and Jim Hamilton of the Cascade
Locks were appointed by the last county
court to survey and locate a new county
road in the mountains south of Parker's
Mill. They did so, but under such
difficulties as one may imagine when he
is informed that three to four feet of
snOw1 lay'over the ioute',Tand Emil says
it snowed like well like Sam Hill dur
ing the time they were at work and had
it not been ' for . the service' of a guide
they would have been lost. Mr. Shanno
says the new road will tap as fine a body
of tinv er as he has ever seen.
Yesterday a representative of the
Chronicle heard a Scotchman, well
known in these parts, tell the following
story : "I left Scotland when quite a lad
and, coming out to San Francisco, I
joined one of the Congregational churches
of that city.! A few nights after I joined
I attended a prayer meeting in the
church and was greatly surprised at be
ing called on, by tne . pastor, to lead in
prayer." I was mad ; you" bet I was. I
had never prayed in my life in public,
but I was hot going to Tack" out : all the
same. So I started off, at a smart gait,
with the prayer I had so often heard
from the'lips of our old Scotch 'minister,
Doctor Feeney, and I. prayed for everyT
thing, including the queen, Albert,' Ed
ward, Prince pf .Wales and all the , royal
family." I 'guess' they were all surprised
at the clever prayer, but .1 noticed the
pastor never asked me to pray again."
We have long known that Dr..Shackle
ford has the most intelligent horse in the
city,, in fact he is getting too much. so.
This morning the doctor left him in front
of Blakely A Houghton's drug store while
'he attended! to some '.business' inside.
The horse noticed the fine bicycle of Mr.
Houghton leaning' agaihs"..'the! pbslTih
front of the store, and, no doubt, thinking
that 'if the doctor had ' a horse' likeA that
he himself would have a soft snap and
might be turned out to grass for the
summer, he deliberately fastened the
lines of his bridle on the bicycle and
walked off with it. '"-An officer - had
him" promptly arrested and restored
the bicycle to its owner. It will be dif
ficult to find a "jury of his peers" to try
the horse for larceny, for he has no peers
anywhere. Meanwhile' he jhas " been'
turned loose on his 'own recognizance.

. hoped he may be arrested and .his state
inquired into before he' does any damage
to himself or any one else.
The court house is getting a nice new
