Mr. W. id. Sharp of 3-Mile called on
The Chronicle office today. Mr. Sharp
informs us that the late-sown winter
wheat has rotted in the ground and that
he has been compelled to resow it all
over. His opinion of the rotting is
owing to the continued cold weather and
the cold condition of the soil. Until the
last few days the growth of grain has
been much retarded, but now is spring
ing into more favorable conditions. The
fruit outlook is all right. Favored lo
calities will furnish a fair crop of peaches
All other fruit looks very promising.

THE BEST YET.
Flan to Advertise Oregon DeaerWnjt
J. M. Hagerty of Portland was in the
city today in the interest of an "Illus
trated Prospectus of Oregon," descrip
tive of tbe entire state and its resources.
This work is gotten out under the aus
pices of the Chamber of Commerce of
Portland, and is indorsed by the world's
fair commission. We cannot do better
this connection than to publish the
letter of Geo. T. Meyers, president of
the commission :
Portland, Or., April 18, 1893.
Gentlemen : Owine to the fact that
the appropriation made by the legisla
ture for the exhibition of Oregon
products at the world's fair was too
small to issue a suitable publication in
quantities and quality demanded for the
occasion, a work to be published under
the auspices of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce was indorsed by the world s
lair commissioners, and will be distrib
uted under the direction of the commis
sioner at Chicago. This work will be
descriptive of the natural resources, ad
vantages and general industries of this
state. Fifty thousand copies will be
distributed at the world's fair. As every
portion of the state will be asked to sup
port the work so that a large number of
books may be issued, each section will
be represented in an impartial manner.
The work will be beautifully illustrated,
and will contain reading matter calcu
lated to induce a desirable immigration
to our state. We ask you to give it as
favorable consideration and support as
Geo. T. Meyers,
Pres. O. W. F. C.
Mr. Hagerty will go to Celilo today
and Cascade Locks tomorrow, returning
here tomorrow afternoon to meet a com
mittee of business men in reference to
Lively at the East End.

At The Dalles Mercantile Co. 's yards
are Mr. Lee Wilson with an eight-horse
team with two wagons, loading for
Mitchell; C. McPherson, one large team
loading for Crosskeys ; Charles Bethel,
loading for Hay Creek ; A. Smith, load
ing for Prineville ; Nina Pots with two
teams loading for the Warm Spring
At the Loch head yard are P. A. Am
bler, who brought a load of apples to the
city irom tne Jonn uay country, is
pading freight for merchants in Grant
Fred Tims is loading his wagons for
Dayville, Grant county.
In conversation with some of these
gentlemen, it is learned that the roads
are in good condition with the exception
of some places near Prineville, and the
Camp Watson county.
A woman to whom the ordinary, dust
collecting, moth breeding carpet was an
abomination and who could not afford
to have all her rooms refloored in hard
woods, adopted this expedient for some
of the seldom used ones. She selected
at a paperhanger's heavy wall paper,
dark in color and conventional in de
sign. She laid the floor first with brown
paper. Then she put down he wall
paper by first coating it with paste and
smoothing it down. When the' floor
was all paper she sized and varnished
it with dark blue and common varnish,
which deepened the color. When it was
dry she scattered a few rugs about, and
her paper carpets have lasted for years.

at Wingate's hall last night proved to be

provoking as were the local hits and
puns. Following is the

W hen scnooi began tne audience wew
first convulsed with laughter by the odd
costumes of the characters that came
trooping upon the stage. Dignified bus
iness men, neat and careful in their
every detail of daily action and dress,
were attired in knickerbockers or pina-'
fores, and the novel sight was presented
of the leading women of church and
society in short dresses and pantalettes.
From this time on the amusement of the
audience was unbounded. The primer
class gave a character song, in which the
words' "this is the way we milk our
cows," was accompanied by the vigorous
gesture of pumping water by "Mike
O'Flynn. In the grammar class "Tom
Sawyer" made out that cow was a pro
noun because it stood for Mary, and
rope was a conjunction because it con
nected the horse and the fence. In tbe
reading class the crying girl was con
vulsed with tears about some individual
greasing her knee, while the irrepressible
giggling girl next to her . could not but
see it to be funny. The boy who ges
tured was a telling take-off, and the
pandemonium caused by their reading
in concert was one of the best things of
the evening. In the "gogfry" class,
"Hepsibah Smith" mentioned as one of
the seven wonders of the world, the
North Dalles' shoe factory, and a volcano
was said by "Jerusha Ann Rose" to be
a mountain gone on a bust, while the
definition of a dormant volcano by
"Samantha Ann Butterworth," was one
that didn't act in public.
Miss Rose Michell, as the hoidenish
girl, was remarkably fine. She suc
ceeded in thoroughly losing her actual
identity to the audience by her excep
tionally clever acting. Mrs. Stephens
did equally as well as "Sally Lickskil
let," though the demands ' of her
character, as well as all the rest, were
less. The crying girl by Mrs. Briggs,
was well taken and her sniffling and
final breakdown were so true to life as
to bring down the bouse. John Parrott,
as "Zedekiah Honevsuckle," kept the
audience laughing at his booby antics.
Mrs. Dr. Rinehart as "Mrs. Honey
suckle" gave a clever piece of character
acting, as the wife of the committeeman
and mother of the "Honeysuckle" twins.
Her verses were delivered in a stilted
style peculiar to that queer mixture of
timidity and egotism of a backwoods
woman who knows enough to read and
write. Hayward Riddell, the "Com
mittee-man," unloaded himself credit
ably of the ignorance and importance of
that typical individual, while "Theo-
philus Grout," both in make-up and de
livery, was a model school-master of the
Bill Jones, in "Casabianca," was all
that could have been done by a profes
sional comedian, and S. L. Brooks, as
"Mike O'Flynn;" W. C. Curtis, as
and C. H. Brown, as
Sylvester Pennoyer," at intervals as
egular as clockwork convulsed tbe
audience with some odd, unique, and
The "Deestrick Skule," as presented
last night, will rank first among the
numerous entertainments of the past
many years, and no one of the large au
dience who attended last night will say
but that they received more than an
equivalent for the admission fee charged.
From a financial standpoint the produc
tion was all that could be desired, and
even more than was expected, for which
the Ladies Good Intent Society in an
other column thank the generous pub
lic. The hall was one of the most dis
couraging 'features of the event, which
could not be helped, but which made its
successful rendition a most difficult
The costumes were mostly true to the
style of our worthy Hoosier mothers
forty years ago. We are informed that
in those days the bifurcated garment of
wool or muslin was unknown, warmth
being . supplied by skirts quilted for
about eighteen inches from tbe bottom,
which were very heavy and cumber
some. The pantalettes were separate
garments about 18 inches long fastened
tightly below the knee ' and around the
ankle. Corsets were also a luxury,
being usually home made, and with a
piece of steel four inches wide and
twelve long, extending from below the
neck to the waist. Those who could not
afford steel prevailed upon their hus
band or big brother to whittle a thin
stay out of hickory.
