Mr. and Mrs. . Kiggs of the Abbie
Carrington Grand Opera company are in
the city for a day or two. .They are de
' lighted with The Dalles scenery, saying
that it is more beautiful than anything
they have seen ,for a long while. The
ever-changing hues and tints on the sur
rounding hills are a joy and a pleasure
to them, as they are to all lovers of the
beautiful who are favored with' the op
portunity of looking over the delightful
surroundings' of our city.- Surely our
environments leave nothing to be desired.
The new two-dollar note it a beauty.
It is handsomer than the old one in
many particulrrs. . The work on it is not
so jammed,' and the vignette of Mr.
Windom shows iu the centre of the cer-
' tificate instead of being on the end.
, The ugly brown seal does not show on
the new issue, but a bright carmine seal
supplants it. About $40,000,000 of the
old two-dollar certificates are 'reported
outstanding. As fast as these are re
ceived in the treasury they will be
marked for destruction.
The Dufur graded school has closed
down for the summer on account of the
prevalence of measles among the child
Ten of the neighborhood. Mr. Frasier
is again engaged to teach a ten month's
term of this school, to commence in
September. The, people of Dufur are
justly proud of their school and believe
there is none better conducted in the
country.. It is quite flattering to Mr.
Frasier that he should . have held his
position as principal for so many succes-
x sive terms.
Sam Klein has- invented an attach
ment for a rocking chair that requires
only to be seen to be appreciated during
these hot days. A- revolving fan is at
tached to the chair so that it is directly
in front of the occupant and by a simple
string and pulley it is made to revolve by
the ordinary movement of the chair so
as to .create a very refreshing breeze on
the face and neck. It beats a common
fan all to pieces, and is much cheaper
and less capricious than a small boy.
Judge .Thorubury says that all that Sam
now needs is a few strands of barbed
wire fixed so as to scratch his back.
It may be interesting to many of our
readers to learn that through the courtesy
of Mr. Alex McLeod of Kingsle? we have
been furnished with a number of the
cut worms that prove such a plague to
the young spring grain of this and ad
joining counties and have sent them to
the eutomologiat of the state agricultural
college for his examination. If that
gentleman can suggest some practical
plan for getting rid of these pests he will
' place the farmers of Eastern Oregon un
der a very great debt of obligation.
While this is perhaps more than we can
reasonably expect we shall be pleased to
publish whatever he may have to say on
the subject, in the pages of the Chron
icle. "; It is expected that the band boys will
give an open air concert on the balcony
in front of Snipes & Kinersly's store, to
morrow evening between 8 and 9 o'clock.
. Speaking of the band reminds 'us that
"the. people of this city owe many thanks
' to Mr. Kinersly for fixing up this balcony
. and. giving the right to use it to the
' band, and to Mr. Glenn for handsomely
lighting up the stand with 18 sixteen
' candle power incandescent lights, and
thanks are also due to Mr. Max Vogt for
a sufficient number of chairs to accom
modate the band. All of these were do
. nated by these gentlemen free of charge.
, The people of The Dalles need no words
of purs urging their appreciation of these
. open-air concerts. We are much pleased
with the prospect of having them .one of
the pleasantest features of our cool sum
mer nights, and also that the band --has

A SEASON OF GRAND OPERA.
The Dalles Is to Han m Oennlne Treat
The Dalles is to- be treated to a Beason
of genuine English opera by thef Abbie
Carrington Grand Opera company on
Friday and Saturday of this week at the
Vogt Grand. Mr. Charles F. Kiggs, the
company's manager is in this city today
and informs the Chuoniclk that the
company is complete in every respect
and particular. The company plays in
only first-class houses aud seldom stops
at towns of this size, but hearing that
The Dalles was a good show town for
first-class attractions the manager made
up his mind to bring the company here
for two nights. The Victoria Colonist
says this in regard to the Abbie Carring
ton Grand Opera company in the "Rose
Madame Abbie Carrington, in present
ing grand opera without chorus or
orchestra, is making a very daring ex
periment. She is conscientious and
essays only those operas which can be
produced, without cutting, by the limited
number of artists with whom she has
surrounded herself. What the company
lacks in numbers it makes up in quality";
there are only eight members, but not
one of them is a stick, and not one of
them misses or maltreats a note. Last
evening's bill was Balfe'w delightful
opera comique "The Rose of Castile."
In the title role, M me. Carrington sang
and acted with brilliancy and effect; .her
voic? is sweet and clear," of rare compass
and great volume, and particularly
pleasing - to listen to. Mr. George W
Traverner who assumed the role of
Manuel (a muleteer), is a well known
figure on the operatic stage, and a tenor
whose voice little fault can be found
with. It is true, expressive and power
ful. Mr. N. Basil Ptetson, the .Russian
basso, was one of the lions of the even
ing. His voice is particularly deep and
full of music, while his acting is irre
proachable. Mr. Christian:. F. Martens
(Don Sallust), the . celebrated baritone,
is another member of the: company.
His singing was so highly appreciated
that a double encore was given.: his solo
in the third get. Sig. Bollni did the
buffo work, and did it well ; and the rich
contralto voice of Miss Minerva Bab
cock won well-deserved applause. On
the whole, the company more than
reached the standard expected from
their own announcements, and thor-;
oughly pleased their audience. , As theii
manager says, they do not present ail
immense company, but they do present
a good company, every member of which
has a recognized and honored place in
the musical World, and anyone of whom
would draw the most critical audiences
on the concert stage. Tonight, the last
of the engagement, "Martha" is to be
presented, and, in. addition, one act of
the Rose of Castile will be repeated with
the gems. Musical lovers should turn
out en matte.
The Fourth of July.
The fire works committee- for the
Fourth of July celebration last night let
the contract for supplying -fire Vworksj
which will surpass anything ever given
in this city before. Nothing' but rge
exhibition pieces have been selected.
Among these we find the following ! Y

. A salute will be fired at sunrise by the
light battery. A grand military and civic
parade will be given at 10 :30 and a sham
battle in the afternoon, with the fire
works on the river at night and a ball at
the new armory. The committee on
amusements will meet this evening to
complete their programme which will be
published tomorrow. ' ;
A Speckled Beauty.
A young gentleman accompanied by a
fresh bright looking girl, with one of
those exquisite complexions with which
the sun loves to take such pleasant lib
erties as to cause an occasional freckle
stood looking into Charlie Graham's
Opera reaturant window last night. A
passer-by heard the young man call her
his 'pretty trout," and the beauty put up
her handsome lips for a pout and asked,
"why do you call me a little trout?"
" Because you're a speckled beauty," was
the answer and then they both smiled and
went away satisfied that Mr. Graham's
window was the nicest place in town to
furnish occasion for neat 'compliments.
His windows always show something
unique, fresh and taking and will . repay
Colonel Bain Coming. -. .
Col. Bain, who is justly considered the
finest orator on the American platform,
will lecture in The Dalles on the 6th
and 7th of June. The lectures will be
"Safe Side of Life for Yonng Men" and
"Drink the Enemy of Labor and Busi
ness." Truly may it be said, that it is'
not often in a life time that' the people
have an opportunity of hearing a man an
wonderfully gifted. Miss Willard says
of him : "To a pictorial memory, a keen
incisive judgment and a sunlit imagina
tion, Mr. Bain adds a pleasing presence,
faultless manner, and voice of teellow
compass and subtlest sympathy."

There is a murmured hush in the crowded hall.
As he stands before them, silent and pale. ';,
For the upturned faces seem to appall, : ,
And his quick heart-beats to fail. .
Of a calm sweet face be catches a sight, ,
And the assuring smile of the one most dear,
For Mother's sake he'll not fail tonight.
Her love will banish all fear. ' '
Blowly are spoken the opening words,
And gathering courage, he breaks the thrall
Of his lettering fear, and now is heard -His
clear young voice through the crowded hall.
The eloquent words are ringing; out.
And his boyish face is all aglow,
With the spirit that clings each word about. .
From the earnest heart below.
His stirring appeal, and woll-proven facts,
Show a mind and a heart that is strong:
A nature that bows to no petty acts,
A soul that can battle with wrong.
A hush as he closes, then cheer upon cheer
Resounds through the echoing hall,
And a shower of sweet flowers, that tribute so
At the feet of the young speaker fall.
But the happiest heart 'mong all the glad ones,
Is that of the mother, whose tears
Are tiou-ing for joy, for tonight her dear son
Crowns the hopes and the prayers of long
Therais a sound of sweet music that falls on the
With a cadence no lulling and sweet, -It
seems like enchantment, beguiling all fear.
The heart's purest impulse to meet.
There are flowers in their beauty and sweet
But they deck a feast of 'wine, .
And the gaslight flooding the elegant room.
With the music and flowers combine. '
To deck as a paradisethis earth-fostered hell,
Where purity is poured out like wine.
The rushing stream of pollution to swell
- With the noblest powers of the mind.
" Fledge with red wine " a voice rings out.
" And I'll sing you a merry song," .
There is a tinkle of glasses, a merry shout
' And the pledge is passed along. , . ,
He stands in their midst, with the crystal glass.
Held high in his hand, while the words " - .
Of the ribald song from his pale lips pass, . t
By the power of the wine-demon stirred. -
Where now is the bookof Innocent joy, '
That one year ago crowned bis brow?
Poor mother, your heart would break for your
Could you see him as he stands there now.
Blood-shot are his eyes, and the fire of the wine
Burns like coals on his pale thin cheeks;
While oaths and foul words as demons combine,
To poison each thought that he speaks.

Calm and pule shines the moon In her beauty
Deep and dark the waters flow by.
And the silence of midnight, with shadows ba

Is scarce broken by zephyrs low sigh.
On the bridge that is spanning the dark turbid
stream,' . -V
There is a struggle God only can see,
A sin-fettered soul that forsaken now seems,
. Struggling in vain to be be free.
That agony; Oh! words how weak to portray
A soul that is struggling with hell;
That has wandered so far from Heaven away.
And is fettered by Satan's dark spell.
Oh my mother forgive, it is the only prayer
. The sin-burdened soul can speak ;
To a God so offended he would not dare
Utter words from a heart so weak.
There Is a dark form springs through the yield
A break in the waters sad flow ;
The bridge holds no form, but the moon looks
And there Is only a ripple below.
There Is a terrible hush bound in by these walls
And the drip; drip; so solemn and slow;
Of waters that seems like sad tears to fall
On the marble slabs below.
Tls the house of death ; many an unknown one
. Lies waiting on a marble bed;
For those who unknowing never can coma
To claim their dishonored dead.
Poor mother are you waiting and praying to
For the boy .that you love more than life;
Do you feel that your prayers will call blm away
From sin and all its wild strife?
It is given a blessing you cannot see
This death house; this cold silent form;
That in innocent childhood, so happy and free
On your warm mother heart you have borne.

A cottage lies hid in roses and vines,
And all seems so quiet and calm;
We feel that here purity and rest must combine
To give broken hearts healing balm.
A white haired woman is kneeling beside '

It holds in its depths college cap and gown,
In places thread-bare and torn.
There are piles of . books, whose worn, soiled

Of a human mind that garnered sheaves
Of ripe grain through study's power.
There in a corner with tenderest care '
A paper lies folded from sight;
Undisturbed in'its rest it long has lain there.
This speech of Commencement Night.
And here the Diploma, with great shining seal
And ribbon of beautiful blue;
Whose reception once made the young student
Pride such as his heart never knew.
The mother's tears fall on these tokens that tell,
Of the joy gone out of her life;
And the white lips refuse to say "It Is well,"
And her heart with submission's at strife.
Poor heart-broken mother, passing under the rod,
Human sympathy can now have no part;
Let us close the doors softly, and leave her with
. God .
He only can speak to her heart.
And this is the end. - Ah 1 no not the end ; -
But all human sight can see;
In that power whose mercy exceeds that of men

Baby is sick. :The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance

to give a baby for a cold? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte

if not the idol of his life was in -distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough

"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print

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
