V At Mrs. Booth's funeral, yesterday, O.
C. Stevens lost his cane. It is of man
zinita wood, polished ivory handle with
silver band, marked O. C. S. The old
gentleman sadly misses the help the
cane afforded him and will feel deeply
grateful to the finder if he return it to
this office, or to himself.
Next Monday the tax payers of The
Dalles will decide the question of bond
ing the city for a further indebtedness
sufficient to complete, the water system
now in progress of construction. The
necessity for voting in favor of the meas
ure requires no argument here and the
election can have but one result ; the
measure will pass.
C E. Bayard brought into this office
today an egg which he vows was layed
by a hen belonging to the "bald-headed"
Cochin variety, the property of C W.
Dietzel. It measures 7J by 9 inches.
The foreman of the Chronicle says it
looks like the "lay of the last minstrel."
The agricultural editor thinks it is a
goose egg. Charley Bayard says it is a
hen's egg. The horse editor thinks it is
an egg and knows that the measurements
given above are eggs-actly correct. If
, any "bald-headed" rooster in Oregon
can beat it let him now crow.
A meeting of the directors of The
Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navigation
Co., was held in this city today. The
committee which was charged with the
duty of letting the contract for the build
ing of the new boat reported . that they
had let the contract to Paquett & Smith,
of Portland, for $25,000, to be finished on
or before the first of August next.
The boat must have a speed of not less
than fifteen miles an hour and shall give
proof of this capacity before being ap
proved by the company. The boat is to
built on the Columbia river at any point
from the Cascades to The Dalles in
clusive. Four beautiful bicycles of the "New
Mail" variety arrived at the express
office this morning for the following per

vard McFarland, one for Dr. Tucker,
and one for Carl Tucker. Willie Crossen
the enterprising young agent of the
Portland Telegram has one en route from
the east of the "Ideal Rambler" persua

bicycle clubs and bicycle races and
"bucking bicycles, and broken shins and
scratched cuticles," but the new bicycles
are beauties, nevertheless, and will afford
lots of fun and healthy enjoyment for
. their owners.

THE PRESIDENT COMING.
He Will be at The Dalles May 7th at
11 0'Clock. -
WHAT WE HATS TO SHOW HIM.
President Harrison and party will
pass through The Dalles going east on
Thursday, May 7th, at the hour of 11
o'clock a. m. It will be in order for our
civic and military organizations to take
measures to give the party a fitting re
ception. An effort will be made to have
the party stop over a few hours to view
some of our. natural curiosities. - It will
be well worth a trip to the Pacific coast
to see the only person now living who,
according to Barney Goldsmith, crossed
the Columbia bar with Sir Francis
Drake in the year 1576. Or the man
who used to walk across the ' Columbia
river on the backs of the salmon. Or
the man who remembers the year
when the river froze to the bottom,
and when ' the - thaw came in
the spring the "water ran for three
months on top of the ice. Or the hand

handsomest set of young ladies on the
American continent. - Or the signal ser
vice bureau at the corner of Second and

times out of every hundred what the
weather is going to be. Or the Chron

dispatches and grinding out, on its new
steam power Cottrell press, at the rate of
thirty to the minute, the best newspaper
in Eastern Oregon.
New Railroad Agent at This Station.
Mr. William R. Mackenzie, traveling
auditor of the Union Pacific Co., has
been in the city for the past day or two
checking over the accounts of Mr. Alla

E. E. Lytle, who succeeds Mr. Allaway
here as agent.
Mr. Mackenzie says that the company
is very sorry to lose the services of Mr.
Allaway who has served them faithfully
for many years, and regret that he has
seen fit to sever the -very pleasant rela
tions existing between them.
Mr. Allaway is not going to leave our
city, however, but - will be associated
with Messrs. McFarland & French.
Mr. Lytle comes well recommended,

: The G. A. R. Encampment. '-.
' The annual encampment of the G. A.
R., department of Oregon has met and
adjourned. A new set of officers has
been appointed and the department
headquarters held in The Dalles for the
past year is now removed to Portland
with O. Summers of "Geo. Wright"
Post No. 1, department commander.
The past year has been the most pros
perous of any in the history of this de
partment. Seven new posts were organ
ized and there was net increase of nearly
450 members as against 238 of the pre
vious year. The order now numbers in
this state 2300 members. It is very
flattering to Ex-Department Command
er James A. Varney and Ex-Department
Quarter Master Gen. A. G. Johnson to
note that during the year of their in
cumbency theG. A. R. experienced the
largest increase hitherto, and that they
were complimented by having organized
the best encampment and produced the
best reports of any previous year. As
toria did handsomely and nobly. At the
banquet on Thursday evening a pro
gramme was arranged that would have
lasted a week. As it was the proceeding
didnot end till a fewminutesbefore their
departure. At the parade Thursday the
beautiful sight of 400 school children
joined in the procession, together with
five companies of O. N. G. . Two eovorn
ment steamers were placed at their dis
posal and carried the happy crowd out
to the end of the new jetty, one of them
going outside the bar. Then they were
placed on cars on the jetty and literally
run "out to the sea" on a'railroad. The
encampment meets at Salem next year,
and Salem will have to hustle to equal
Astoria. The delegation from this post
consisted of Department Commander J.
A. Varney, Assistant Adgt. Gen. Myers
and Mrs Myers, Assistant Quarter Mas

Tille, Ind., who claims to be the largest
and heaviest man in the world. He is
not a mnsenm freak, but a quiet, law
abiding citizen. His weight ia 807
pounds, and forty-one single yards of
cloth were required for hi suit. The
pantaloons took five yards. Mr. Craig's
hip measures 8 feet 8 inches; waist
measure 84 inches. He weighed only
thirteen pounds at birth, but when 4
months old his avoirdupois had increased
to 200 pounds.' He is 85 years old and
married, his wife weighing only 130

Creased Trousers Ko Foslitnnahlo,
The creased trousers have had their
day. The lesser swells have just begun
to emulate this fashion as it goes out of
favor with the tip-toppers. The fact
that various plebeian devices were re
sorted to to secure an imitation of the
correctly creased effect, as for instance
by pressing the nether garments over
night between the mattresses, bereft the
fad of its exdosiveness to 'the minds of
the swagger set, and when it latterly be
came noised about that one object of the
crease fold was that the trousers would
hold their shape longer, this was the
final straw for a trne swell can never
be at comfort when abroad with a badge
of economy in his makeup. It ia a curi

fashion never was made manifest in the

The little 8-year-old daughter of Mr.

preparing to take her abroad for treat
ment, but while the little soffexer was
asleep the mother succeeded in getting
the corn out after eight attempts by
blowing through the child's mouth, as

I Disease a Punishment?
The following advertisement, published
by a prominent western patent medicine
house would indicate that they regard
disease as a punishment for sin :
"Do you wish to know the quickest
way to cure a sever cold? We will tell
you. To cure a cold qickly, it must be
treated before the cold has become set
tled 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 indiscre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless you . choose to ward it off by
prompt action. The first symptoms of a
cold, in most cases, is a dry, loud cough
and sneezing. The cough is soon followed
by a profuse watery expectoration and
the sneezing by a pro suae watery dis
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 will effectually counteract it,
and cure what would have been a severe
cold within one or two days time. Try it
and be convinced." Fifty cent bottles for
sale by Snipes & Kinersley, druggists.
- - The Best Cough Medicine.
"One of my customers came in today
and asked me for the best cough medi
cine I had," says Lew Young, a promi
nent druggist of Newman Grove, Neb.
"Of course I showed him Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and he did not ask to
see any other. I have never yet sold a
medicine that would loosen and relieve
a severe cold so quickly as that does. I
have sold four dozen of it within the
last sixty davs, and do not know of a
single case where it failed to give the
most pefect satisfaction." 50 cent bot
