A correspondent from Fifteen Mile
-writes us that Mr. Horatio Stone, of Fif

May 27th., .1891, of Congestive fever

has been a serious source of suffering to
him for several years. He was 67 years
old the 22nd day of last April.
' The surveying party that started out
over a week ago to survey and locate a
road between The Dalles and some point
in Sherman county met with a mis-hap
that will delay the further progress of
the survey for a short time. On one of
the late very windy days the surveyor's
instrument was knocked over and almost
completely ruined. The party will take
the 'field again 'as Boon as the instrument
is repaired or another procured.
The name McGinty has been honored
in Irish story since Eochid II was crown

was our astonishment aud indignation,

der to secure the contract for construct
ing the reservoir at Mesplies, changed
.. his name to McGintie. " He pretended he
was "French" and got the contract.
Now he says he is going to wear side

eighteen different Grand Operas, deter

work, and has perhaps suceeded in show

prevented her continuing in Italian opera

Editor Chronicle : With your per
mission I will give yo l a few items, con
cerning the schools, from time to time
as I journey among them ; piaising what
I find to be good and making sugges
tions for improvement.
I am the more anxious to do this be
cause I believe that in no other way can
I more readily awaken an interest among
patrons. And this seems in many . dis
tricts to be the main thing that is lack
ing. , .'"'.''
The short trip I made last week was
not a very successfnl one, as will be seen
below, for out of eight schools visited I
found from one cause or another, only
four in session.
I left The Dalles, Wednesday coon
May 20th, and came to the Floyd school
No. 14, where Miss Lura Welch is teach
ing. This school is small, only .seven
scholars . being . present, some staying
away on account of sickness. Some of
the pupils here are well advanced. They
were just passing a written Examination
in history and physiology. It speaks
well for Miss Welch's teaching that hav
ing taught here last year, she is employed
again this year at an increase of salary.
How much is lost in many districts by
changing teachers so often. They have
a dictionary and a good globe here, but
need some .wall mxps. In this district,
I am thankful to say, there is no fussing
Went on to district No. 15 near -James
Fulton's. The school was not in session
but found a notice on -the door "Teacher
The next ; morning we visited the
school in No. 16, Miss Jeannette Graham
teacher.' She is a young teacher, but is
giving good satisfaction. Here we also
found just seven scholars. They have
Webster's unabridged dictionary, but no
other apparatus. Most of the scholars
conie on horseback. The house is small
and unfinished but a good coat of white
wash would brighten it up wonderfully.
From . here we went to the Johnson
school No. 18, but found it closed on ac
count of the death of one of thedii Actors,
Mr. Obarr; ;.. '
Our next drive was five miles np the
long ridge of the divide to Summit school
near Mr. Canfield's. Near here we got
one of Wasco's fine' views five , snow
clad peaks at once. They have no school
here. A great many "have moved away, '
and only three scholars are left to draw
public money, .'.!-''. !
From here we went on the down grade
six or seven miles to Liberty school N o.
20, where . Mr. P. P. Underwood is
teaching. We got there just as he was
closing, but came back next morning and
visited the school. . They have a large
substantial house, for which they deserve
credit, but it needs painting badly. - I
saw no apparatus of any kind except two
very -small wall maps, . and no. suitable
desk or table for the teacher. ' ""
The district is fortunate in securing the
services of so excellent a teacher as Mr.
Underwood. The i black-board exercises
in Written Arithmetic were very good,
showing a thorough drill by the teacher
in .the handling of fractions, and some
very apt pupils.
Next went to No." 30 in Long Hollow
on the Canyon City road, Mr. T. W. At
kinson teacher, but found the school
closed on account of measles. '.
As it was Friday afternoon we turned
for home, stopping on the way at No. 22
on Eight Mile, Miss S. V. Cooper teacher.
The stay here for an hour was a real
recreation. . The exercises in declama
tion and dialogue were good, and. the im
promptu story writing by the children,
and the mental black-board drill did
credit to both teacher and pupils. All
these exercises showed that both teacher
and pupils were working hand in hand
together. - A number of parents were
visiting, which was a great encourage
ment to the school. The house here is
finished outside and inside and furnished
with nice seats, teacher's desk and ap
paratus. Among the latter I noticed a
set of anatomical charts one of the finest
I ever saw. The people here are justly
proud of their school house and their
" A good ideal for a superintendent to
labor for is a school house like this in
every district in the comity, with at least
a six months school.

The following incident happened to
Madame Carrington, the prima' donna,
who presents "The Rose of Castile in the
Vogt Grapd Friday evening of this week,
at the City of Mexico, during a perform
ance of "Martha," and ' just as Mme.
Carrington finished singing ; "The Last
Rose of Summer," President Gonsaulis
had. .passed over the footlights an im
mense pyramid of flowers, containing a
variety of" Mexico's choicest- fruits, a
nightingale and several canary birds and
a package of gold coin, the whole sur
mounted with a beautiful rose, to which
was attached a card bearing the follow
ing inscription :
"Strong in virtue and womanliness J
Strong in character and charitableness.
Strong in voice and sentiment, - You
sway the world at will in song. . Birds-11

Mr. Farley came up from the Locks
last night and will return tomorrow. ' He
reports that the survey will be . finished
today and that tomorrow orders for the
material needed for construction will be
made out and placed in the hands of
those who will supply it. The survey
would have been finished some time
sooner had they not met with some dif
ficulty in securing a landing place for the
boats, owing to the presence of rocks.
As many as three different soundings
had to be made. All difficulty in this
regard has been met, but owing to the
present high stage of the river it will be
impossible to finish the west-end of the
incline at present. This however can be
done when the water recedes. Mr. C.
C. Hobert has been chosen as master
mechanic for the construction of the
work. Mr. Hobert was master mechanic
of the U. P. shops at this city for six or
seven years and is inqvery way qualified
for the position he assumes. The board
is to be congratulated in the choice it has
made in Mr. Hobert, for no one could
have been selected ' more - satisfactory
in all respects. Mr. Hobert is a man of
sterling integrity and of irreproachable
character and it speaks well for the hon
est conduct of the portage road that a
man of hi8 well known reputation for
honesty and integrity has been placed in
a position so responsible.

Baby is sick. -The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
lv 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 Ahe 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
himself, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving it even to a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.
