" 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.

MOSIER MUSINGS. a he Peach Crop Will Be Short Moaler's . Four Hundred. From our Regular Correspondent. Our thrifty immigrant is making a furious charge on both stump and tree 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 day's train. 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. . Every community has its "four hun dred," Mosier's .consisting rjf about twenty-five individuals, who met at the residence of A. Prather on Friday even ing last, the occasion being a ball The cock crowed lustily, announcing Satur day's dawn, before the gay revelers stopped tip-toeing "grand right and left" and promenaded to their respect ive homes, feeling highly pleased and well entertained. Sub. Trifles Light as Air. 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.' " A ' ' ' 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 tations. ' 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 lower quotations. Wool is quoted low, 10 to 16 for East ern Oregon wools, and 13 to 15 for valley. The Asylum. : 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. Of course. 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 practice." 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.
