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 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
sult 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 certainly surprise
you, not only with the goods, but the prices at Which we
shall sell them. We mean business and propose to have
your patronage, if LOW PRICES and the BEST
GOODS will accomplish it. Yours Respectfully,
The Dalles Daily Chronicle.

I. J. Norman, who has made the scale
an especial object of his attention for
the past two years, was most agreeably
surprised yesterday to observe his trees,
which were badly covered with scale, of
a dull brown color. A closer examina

scraping them up on his thumb nail,
noticed that they were quite lifeless and

It is known that they are a native of a
warmer climate, coming originally from
Africa, and thriving in the semi-trop
