WE HAVE rather neglected our Advertising f 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 some
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', their" arrival of which, .we shall give you due' notice.
Keep" both' eyes 'on this space and we.- will certainlyvsurpriso
: you u not only with the goods," but the prices at which we
- shall sell them. -We meaii' business "and propose to have
your patronage, if LOW, PRICES and . ih BEST
GOODS will accomplish it. Yours Respectfully,

Arlington Safe liobberjr.
The Record gives on account of 'the
robbing of Coffin Bros.' eafe at Arlington
on Monday of last week, but fails' to
print the name of the offender. We do
not know the reason why the Record
kept; the name a secret. We trust the
editor of the. Record was not implicated.
But laying jokes aside, the only rule to
go by is for a newspaper to show no
partiality in such matters. If a paper
keeps the name back in one case, it will
lie importuned to in others and have no
end of trouble. It is no more than the
readers of the Record onght to expect
for that paper to give the name in such
a case as tnts, atter tne complaint is
made and the party bound ..over. It is
not libelous, and seldom ever does harm
to publish the facts of judicial criminal
proceedings, without comment. " "-''
The danger lies in and injury results
from publishing rumored suspicions,
tinctured with malice, and connecting
names of persons with that sort of elan
der. But the public have a right to the
name and charge sworn to in court, and
a newspaper has the right to give them,
and to publish the complaint, if he
choose, or a copy of the proceedings, or
any fact connected with the court as a
part of the. proceedings. The rule for
newspapers in such matters is that the
publication should not be done with
malice, and that the paper is liable for
the truth of all assertions it makes that
are not strictly matters of record
Following is the account given by the
Record-: "The safe of the well known
firm of Coffin Bros., was robbed of about
one hundred dollars on' Monday last.
The facts are about as follows : Stanley
Coffin left the safe party open and' went
skating. During his absence a younjr
man who was formerly in their "employ
came in the store, went to the safe and
took Out the money,' the party in charge,
not thinking anything about the matter.
When Stanley returned he missed the
money and madeinquiry, and was in
formed who had been in. A warrant
was sworn out, and Marshall -Carlisle
soon had the party..' He acknowledged
the theft, and returned nearly all the
money. He was taken before Justice
Zeigler and placed under $150 bondsto
appear before the next grand jury. We
suppose his bondsmen have the monuv
to lose, n we think it i verv doubtfnl
the thief will be in the
the gi'and jury convenes.1

Activity of North American volcanoes.
Scientific American. Padernal peak.j
situated in the wilds of Rio. Arriba
county, New Mexico, is reported as now
a violent etate of eruption, and is
belching forth sulpbrous fumes and lava
at intervals of about three hours, each
lasting about thirty minutes. This has
been going on since the last week in
December. The entire top of the moun
tain, which was almost square and about
mile in extent, is stated to be blown
off, and the lava pouring down the sides
has already filled up the valley for about
half a miletm each side. A considerable
portion of a ruined - city '. of the ancient
cliff dwellers will be covered with the
slag should the. eruptions continue.
Padernal peak is one of the most promi
nent landmarks of the territory. The
Mexicans eay that it burst forth in
violent eruption in 1820 and did not
cease for' nearly a year afterward- It
has lain dormant until the present time.
The rumbling noise and lurid light can
be plainly beard and seen at Sierra
Amarilla, seventy miles distant, and an
army of people from there are now at
Ariquin to witness the impressive sight.
An earthquake shock felt at Orizaba,
Mexico, recently, greatly frightened the
Deonle living in the vicinity of the"!
Orizaba volcano. . -The town of Orizaba
lies about seventy miles by rail eouth
west of Vera Cruz and about twenty-
five miles south of Mount. Orizaba, the
snow-clad peak of which is said by some
to be 17,380 feet above sea level, and by
others to be the higheet peak in North
America. The residents of (Jolima, the
capital of the Mexican stateof that name
on the Paciffc coast, also feel a nervous
apprehension regarding the volcano ot
Coli ma, which, reaching a height of
about-12,000 feet, looms ekyward about
thirty miles northeast of the capital.
Every night a lurid light illuminates
the skv above the mountain, and.it is
feared that this portends a serious eruption.
