TO Our Friends and Patrons.
WE HAVE rather neglected our Advertising of late, not
because we had nothing to sell; but we had nothing
especially new to offer, and preferred to wait until we could
say something of interest. We are, and have been for spme
time, busily engaged in placing our orders for Spring and
Summer Goods and feel justified in announcing that we
shall have the FINEST ASSORTMENT and the BEST
GOODS in all our lines that has ever been seen in The
Dalles. - We have secured some ' genuine novelties in the
: Dry Goods Department, and the ladies . will certainly con
; suit their best ; interests . by deferring their purchases until
after "the!r"arrival of which we shall give you due notice.
Keep both eyes' on this space and we will certainly surprise
you; not only; with .the goods;, but the prices at which we
ghall sell them. " We mean business and propose to have
your patronage, " if LOW PRICES and the BEST
GOODS will ' accompli sh it- Yours 'Respectfully,

Hon, Z. i Moody and Hon H. A.
Hogne, former residents of The Dalles,
are in the city to-day .
The rotary snow plow and three loco
motives left at 8 o'clock this morning to
open the road to Portland. . It; ,ia
thonght there will be no serious delay
of trains on account of the snow in
"Multnomah county, about Bonneville,
Bridal Veil, etc.
This is ground-hog day. Where this
tradition about the ground-hog and his
shadow originated is not known. The
oldest inhabitant says his grandfather
told him about it long before the signal
service was invented or thermometers
were regarded as household necessi
ties. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Sherar are in New
York today, but expect to leave for Bos
ton in a day or two. They are in fine
health. The ship Tillie E. Starbuck,
with Mr." Sherar's wool on board reached
New York on the 31st, in go id condition.
This is the wool cargo shipped from The
Dalles last fall by the Regulator line.
. , The snowfall yesterday put Union
street in tine condition for coasting and
as the evening shades fell, the various
eleds and . coasting- apparatus accom
panied by their owners, appeared in full
force and were soon chasing each other
down through the cut in swift 6tyle, and
gavo a peculiarly animated appearance
to the street, manv remained out till
quite late enjoying the rare sport." '
Gold weather and freezing winds avsu
nothing to dampen the ardor ' of , the
.Iwhist players. Last evening at Prater
nity hall the Union club held high car
nival with the cards and tables, and
passed one of the most pleasant eyeii'
'-Sngs known in the history of whist clubs.
They were entertained by Mr. and Mrs.
J. S. Fish. Mrs; Chas. Hilton won the
, first prize, while Mr. L. E. Crowe cap
tured the booby. (We wonder "if he
crowed over it?) The club will be en-A
tertained by Mr. aud Mrs. Hi Glenn
next week. . i
The Prinville News of the 28th nit.,
' "says of the winter in Crook "tsunty :
, .Although the last snow storm was not
deep and the attending cold weather
not very severe, there has -been some
loss of stock on the ranges, but we have
not heard of such loss to any great extent.
Along the streams and waterways where
grass has been eaten off in the fall, the
, last snow has covered up every vestige
of what thev might graze upon, and
having grown poorer as the winter ad
vanced, some of them have died. Par
ities from town who. have ridden' lately
Along the river below town, tell us of
finding three cattle dead on the range
during an afternoon's ride. From the
outeido range we have had no definite
reports, bnt from what we have pre
viously learned of the condition of
stock, and of the range farther away, we
do not anticipate having to chronicle
any considerable loss of stock nnlees the
winter grows more severe than it has
been, and this we firmly believe will not
happen, although we are not extra well
versed in the forecast business.

We give this bill entire today as in
troduced by Mr. Cross Jan. 11th. It
will be read with interest, as it is one of
the most important measures in the
assembly. While on this subject we
may say that the fees of theeheriffin
this county the past two months aggre
gated $802 for county business alone;
the clerk's foes and salary for the same
period of time was $1,3GS. Other fees
coming to the office for the two months
make the asgregate something alike
$2,500 for the clerk for county business
during the two months.

Inhalation of Strychnine.
Prineville News : .Charlie Hanes and
"French Louie," who are taking care of
a band of Nye & Allen's sheep near
Eagle Rock, came near getting a fatal
dose of poison. One of their dogs got
hold of a strychnine bate in some un
known manner, and when the boys dis
covered him in a fit, they went to work to
dose him - with salt, by which ' means
the dog was saved. They must have in

both felt ' the effects of - strychnine.
Charlie was the first to show it, and im

TriuESDAY, Feb. 2. Traffic has been
nearly suspended on account of the
pinching cold wihtryNWeather, and the
markets are lifeless in consequence
There is a complaint of a ecarcitv of
vegetables anil also in farm products,
Such as eggs and butter. Eggs are firm
and prices are ruling higher than here
tofore this season. Fresh butter-is in
better demand and is a. trifle dearer
There- is -a fair supply of potatoes, but
should the cold weather continue much
longer prices will be marked up. Al
ready there is a very - firm tendency for
an advance soon. Poultry is scarcer
and dearer with a good inquiry.
:. The beef and mutton market is steady,
although there is a better inquiry for
good fat beeves and mutton sheep. Fat
hogs are in better request owing to a
scarcity, and for prime porkers an ad
vance on former quotations could be
realized. " ' The - long- snow period has
given rise to a better demand for mill
feed and ha3', and a stiffening in prices
has taken place . within the past few
days in consequence. -
- The wheat market remains quiet and
seemingly lifeless. Advices from abroad
are no more encouraging than a, month
ago. valley mills have cut down prices
from one to two cents per bushel, air
