Ideala, "a romance of realism," by
Charles Grissen, has just ' been issued
from the press, a copy of which was re
ceived at this office yesterday. The au
thor has endeavored to modernize, for
the service of his Vork,". the mythology
of the ancients . ' and : interweave
it with the events of today, but the
union is not happily wrought and jars
on the readers. The descriptions of
scenery are on the whole good, though
imaginative. The plot cannot be said
to be a brilliant conception, and the oc
casional attempts at humor are a failure.
The conclusion reached is that, while
the author is gifted, and evidently has
the requisite knowledge demanded for a
book, of its class, he would have won
greater laurels had he written a philo
sophic essay,, of which the preface of
"Ideala" gives rich promise.

Our thrifty immigrant is making a

as well as stool grubs. " - .
, Mrs. J. D. Mosier, arrived home from
a visit with friends and relatives in the
western part of the state on last Wednes
The Hardwick bridge gang, which
had been here for about two weeks' re
pairing trestles near by, was . taken to
Rowena on Monday.
Snow is fast disappearing on the sur
rounding foot hills. Much stock has
been turned out to graze and is looking
remarkably well. ; : ' ' :'
. Another Mosier ite was made extremely
happy this week, being the recipient of
a fine baby boy. Geo. Judy is the lucky
father and feels he has a prize well
'.worth possessing.' .
School clerk Mosier has .finished tak
ing the enumeration of school children
in this district'. The result is seventy
five, as compared with forty-three of last
year, a very flattering increase.
Miss Dollie Mosier, Mesdames Brown
and La Piere, and Messrs. Davenport
Ireland," Hardwick,-Lynch, Deitzmiller,
Lewis and several other, of our citizens
were at The Dalles this week, either7 on
pleasure or business bent.
Upon investigation of the peach
orchards in this vicinity, it is found that
the severity of the past winter has killed
nearly all of the fruit buds. The peach
licrop will consequently be short.
Probably the immigrant (from the
prairie states) has .the greatest amount
of profanity in store, when trying to ex
tract a stool grub, of anybody in this
section. Trying to do the matter justice
is a trying ordeal. We would say, use
kind and pursuasive words, boys, they
will be just as effective.
The sale of the Shephard place by
Administrator Lynch in front of the
court house, on February 22d, took a
number of our. citizens to the. county
seat. Rev. Frank Ireland was the for
tunate . purchaser, getting forty-eight
acres of as good land as we Have at $5
per acre. .

Highlanders have the habit of inter
jecting ; the personal prououn .-."he"
where not required. They well say, for
example, "The king he has come," in
stead of "The king has come." This
habit got a worthy Scotch' minister into
trouble. He began his sermon as fol
lows; , "My friends, you. will find the
subject of discourse this afternoon in the
first epistle general of the apostle Peter,
chapter 5 and verse 8, in the following
words : The devil he goeth about like
a' roaring lion, seeking whom he may
devour.' Now, my friends, with your
leave, we will Tlivide the subject of our
text into four heads: Firstly, we shall
endeavor to ascertain 'Who the devil he
was.' Secondly, 'Where the devil he
was going.' , Thirdly, 'Who the devil he
was seeking.' And lastly, 'What the
devil he was Toaring about.' "

THE DALLES MARKETS.
Thubbday, March 2. The clearing
weather and - the bright sunshine has
bad a fine effect in drying up the roads,
and putting new life into business cir
cles during the past week,, in which
there is a marked improvement. .Large
stocks of merchandise are being received
daily by our merchants who anticipate
a very active trade for the year. While
former prices have been maintained up
to the present, advances in staple dry
goods are probable in the near future,
especially so, as to cottons, which will
be.' dearer than they have been for
years. Woolen . fabrics, and clothing
will continue at their, minimum rates,
as raw wool is exceedingly low and the
supply is large in reserve..
In staple groceries, some changes have
taken place,' for instance coffee has ad
vanced a cent per pound, with an In
dication of another advance soon.
Canned goods are dearer, also dried
fruits are in better inquiry, and have
turned dearer on a shorter market. .
All kinds of beans are reported as
having advanced to of a cent per
pound. The rice supply is fair and the
market quotations are unchanged.
Sugars remain Bteady, without any
evidence of fluctuating market for the
near future. V-
. . The meat market is feverish and for
the past month a steady advance has
been noted for hams and bacon and lard.
Yesterday . an. advance, was made on all
kinds , of . hog . meats and. lard. , One of
our prominent dealers said yesterday
owing to the shortage of the hog product
in the east we must expect still higher
prices for all meats during the year.
: In farm products the market is in
better supply: than' a few' weeks ago.
Eggs are freely offered and the market
is almost lifeless ; 18 cents per dozen is
all that is offered today, and a sharp de
cline will, follow daily. The Portland
market is overstocked and is flat. ' '
. Fresh . butter is plentiful , at 35 to 50
cents per roll. Packed . butter in brine
may be quoted at 28 to 33 cents per
roll with few buyers. , ' .''
Potatoes and onions are in fair stock,
and have not suffered any decline in
prices. . A 1 potatoes for table use $1.35
per sack and $1.25 for ordinary . ..
Mill feed, and also baled bay, has not
undergone any change from former quo
Portland market is depressed in thS'
breadstuff line. Salem flour declined
yesterday to $3.30 per barrel, and other
brands to $3.00.
There is no change in the cereal mar
kets.. European markets are! dull and
have no apparent coloring of promise for
an immediate improvement, but for
Wool is quoted low, 10 to 16 for East
ern Oregon wools, and 13 to 15 for valley.
: The contention about the insane asy
lum among '- Eastern Oregon papers
would remind one of the quarrel between
the boys in an old tale about the stars
and the firmament, one boy supposing
the stars represented cattle and were his,
and the other claiming the sky as a pas
ture ground. The question arising
where the kine would graze led to a
quarrel resulting in a bitter fight. The
insane asylum row is just as profitless.
Gov. Pennoyer, Secretary McBride and
Treasurer Metscham , will decide the
point and will compare impartially all
the claims of each. We do not believe
it. will be located in a. sparsely-settled
district, or where good water and natu
ral, scenery are wanting. The Irvine
place on Chenoweth better fills all re
quirements, than any that has yet been
propos3d, and it is quite probable that
this will be the place selected, provided
it can be secured reasonably. -
There's a good deal of guarantee busi
ness in the store keeping of today. It's
too excessive. Or too reluctant. ' Half
the time it means nothing. Words
only words. . -
This offer to refund the money, or to
pay a reward, is made under the hope
that you won't want your money back,
and that you won't claim the reward.
So, whoever is honest in making it,
and works not on his own . reputation
alone, but through the local dealer,
whom you know, must haveomething
he has faith in back of the guarantee.
The business wouldn't stand a year
without it. - -
What is lacking is . confidence. Back
of that, what is .lacking is that clear
honesty which is above the . "average
Dr.' Pierce's medicines are guaranteed
to accomplish what they are intended to
do, and their makers give the , money
back if the result isn't apparent.
Doesn't it strike you that a medicine
which the makers have so much confi
dence in, is the medicine for you.
