The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
Reports couie in from Kansas that the
wheat prospects in that state is very dis
couraging. In some counties the Hessian
fly has made its appearance , and in
others a small bug has begun to prey
on the young growth, and in still other
counties the fall wheat is turning yellow
from some unknown cause, which is
supitosed to le an insect altogether un
known to the agricultural department.
In the southern and the extreme west
ern portion of the state the drouth is
being seriousily felt. On the whole, the
present outlook is that Kansas will not
produce over half a crop of wheat this
Ir.dutral Neu-t (Jackson, Mich.) says:
The money power and Wall street sneaks
are getting alarmed about the growth of
the alliance movement. We have it
from good authority, that secret agents
and emissaries are to be sent out to disor
ganize and split up this good peoples'
movement. Brethren, beware of any
men who come into your meetings and
speak against the alliance principles and
the alliance platform. The sectionl feel
ings will be tried, and northern and
southern alliance maintained. This is
only a trap, as all alliances are united on
the Oca! a platform.
In the destructive fires in New York
recently it was demonstrated, what most
people suspect, that the ordinary orna
mental cast iron fire escape, which me
anders down the front of tall buildings
is almost useless. . If the fire bursts out
through the windows, those inside the
house cannot reach the escape, and in
any case the iron becomes so hot that
persons decending cannot cling to it or
step upon it. The true fire - escape, as
ha a been suggested, will be a tower apart
from the building, reached by iron . bal
conies from the building!
The sinking of one of. the iron clad war
vessels of the. insurgents at ' Chili by a
torpedo from one of Balmaceda's gun
boats, has created great interest in naval
circles regarding the effective use of the
torpedo. A little gunboat loaded with a
torpedo, can annihilate the heaviest iron
clads, and if Italy is anxious to Bend over
her mammoth terrors of the. sea, a tor
pedo can demolish such a craft in short
order. The big water forts cost a good
deal of money, but are not vulnerable
against the vicious torpedo from a small
The Republican, (Washington, Kan.)
puts out a suggestion : Do you want to
see land values go up Your farm double
in value? That time will come when
agriculture again becomes profitable. It
will become profitable when farmers vote
for their own welfare by sending enough
men to congress to make laws in the in
terest of the whole people-for the masses,
not the clussess. We deny that a single
measure that is being urged by the alli
ance is a class measures.
Calif, is the abbreviation adopted by
the postal authorities to avoid mistakes
in delivering mail addressed to Califor

not Cal., as this so resembles the abbre
viation for Colorado, Col., that it is
sometimes impossible to determine to
which place the letter should be sent.
It was senator Sherman who originated
the expressive political phrase "I am
looking after my fences," and he has
now started a new one on its travels by
saying: "I came oat here to build, a
barn." There are not a few people in
Ohio who would like to know the kind
of crop the wily politician proposes to
Store in that barn.

.It is now "Richelieu Blaine" in the
realms of statecraft, with one important
difference. Richelieu's diplomacy was
for the benefit of himself and his kingly

Baby is sick. -The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
ly without cause, when he inquired of a
druggist of the same city what was best
to give a baby for a cold"? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte
nance showed that the pet of the family,
if not the idol of his life was in distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," was the druggist's answer.
"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print
ing Co., don't you? inquired the drug
gist. "His baby, when eighteen months
old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and drank the whole of
it. Of course it made the baby vomit
very freely but did not injure it in the
least, and what is more, it cured the ba
by's cold. The teamster already knew
the value of the Remedy, having used it
himseli, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving.' it even to a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.
"This cheap sugar they are talking
about 20 pounds of granulated sweet
ness for one dollar; is a good thing,"
said a citizen to' our reporter today.
"But the dollar; that's the question.
You may smile at' this assertion, but it
is a fact. I'll wager' that there are
thousands and thousands of men in this
country men of family and ' renters, too
who are willing and anxious to work,
that have not averaged' three" day's work
during the past' winter.' Sugar' at -50
pounds for a dollar cuts no figure with a'
man who hasn't a dollar. ' ' Give us a rest
on this twenty ' pound sugar racket and
tell us how we can secure steady work at
living wages and we will be better pre
pared to appreciate the sugar.'"' The re
porter is now probing into this question
and will, if he can Teach a 'solution, give
a strictly "non-partisatt"" answer to the
question propounded. In the meantime,
any of our subscribers, who may fathom
this riddle, are respectfully invited to
gi ve him a "tip.' M o. Wprld. - -

Something Now In Decoration.
A California invention has just been
patented which bids fair to revolutionize
the methods now in vogue' for decorat-,
ing glass and porcelain. The object of
the invention is to so decorate such ; sur
faces as to produce and permanently fix
nppn them, impressions of figures; por
traits or scenery. '. V, ".' -
A sheet of glass or porcelain is covered
with an ' em'nlsioii, and after being sub
jected to a dry' heat is placed over a pho
tograph, engraving, etching or any kind
of drawing. The glass. .or porcelain,
after, being sensitized, is exposed , for
about. ,tliree minutes in a strong jsuu
light. After the exposure' is made the
picture is developed by the use of j,'cer-:
amic powders of any 'color desired.
'The powder is taken dry and sifted
evenly in the desired locations- and
brushed over with a soft brush. . Grad
ually the images develop on the plates,'
green foliage, brown trunks and branches,
appear, vivid and true .to nature.' . When
the image' is thus developed a thin coat
ing" of 'flux is' applied', the plate is pat
into1 - a firing furnace, and the' ' picture
becomes permanent.' San ' Francisco

Dnrx-nyo'a Tin Bfino. .
With reference to the reported dis
covery of a very rich tin mine about
forty-five miles from the city of Du
rangd, John ' Pershmaker, the owner,
says the discovery of the vein was almost
an accident. He had gone to what is
known as the Diabalt mine, for the pur
pose of examining the yield of metal
bearing ores, not knowing that tin had
ever been found there. He found a shaft
about 800 feet deep, which had passed
through two light veins of gold," iron and
silver bearing ores'..
On making a close examination of the
sides of the shaft he noticed a large and
very rich lead of oxide and tin. He ran
a horizontal tunnel for a short distance,
striking a vein of pre over four feet wide
and "composed of a solid mass of oxide of
tin, assaying from 50 to 60 per cent, of the
pure metal. There is no sulphur in it
whatever, so that the Work of reducing
the ore simply amounts to the" work of
smelting and casting into ingots. New

Something New in Vesta.
The skeleton vest has a full vest front
and an open back. ' The collar and a
piece of the shoulder top run all the way
around,' thus affording sufficient body
for a proper shoulder set. The vest is
then fastened around .the waist by a
belt. .' These skeleton vests are made in
two sizes: One size will fit a 82, 34, 86 or
88 bust, and the other will fit a 40 to 46.
The garment sit, beautifully, and ts
the .figure perfectly. The main features
are that it does away with a great deal
of " weight" and useless ''material' and,

An Important Letter.
Technicalities ' of the ' law are being
used to an advantage in the Walker
county court. A - party was charged
with the theft of cigars.- The ixhui ty at
torney, in drawing up the complaint,
charged the accused with the. theft of
"run" cigars.. The defendant's lawyer
succeeded in having the .case thrown but
of court ' because the'' letter 'e" t was
omitted "from the' word nine," ' and
showed that the accused did not appro
priate "nin' cigars" belonging to 'some
one else to his own use. Madison ville
