Minor Events Which Pertain to City'
Two inches of snow is reported in
N Owing to so mnch snow and rain
the air yesterday the belt on the crusher
slipped off, which in turn pulled off the
governor belt, breaking the arm. The
trouble was fixed up this morning by
Engineer Brown and was " pounding
this afternoon with customary vigor.
Wm. Floyd says that the disease
which is killing the cattle is blackleg,
but that it only attacks fat and young
cattle. The cattle now are as fat as
they usually are in summer, and noth
ing can be done in the way of treatment
for fear of their taking cold by the oper
ation, which is severe.
D. P. Crabtree, from Tygh Valley, in
coming to The Dalles yesterday in a
buggy, had the misfortune to have a
little runaway on top of 8-Mile hill.
He was thrown out and slightly hurt in
his back, and the' wheels running over
his leg, but nothing serious. The horses
were caught after three-quarters of a
mile had been left behind.
At a recent meeting of the ladies' sew
ing circle in The Dalles one of the ladies
excused herself, saying she had to go
home and put a democratic badge on her
husband's pants. Asked what a demo
cratic badge was she replied that since
the democratic administration her hus
band had sat around so much waiting
for a job that the pants needed a new
Arthur Stubling was thrown from a
horse this morning near Varney's, being
thrown" on his head upon some rocks,
sustaining a . severe contusion of - the
head, a scalp wound three inches in'
length, besides other injuries on " his
right' arm and leg." Dr. Hollister was
called who made several stitches in the
head, and .the wounded boy will grad
ually mend. ,
"The fatal accident to the boy who
jumped off the train at Wilbur may
, serve as a warning to boys in The Dalles
who make a practice of jumping on and
off trains going at a high rate of speed
between the yards and the Umatilla
house. Those who have to do this for
a living see little sport a boat it, and
realize that with all their experience
and caution, they are at any time apt to
be killed or maimed, and for boys it is a
dangerous and foolish pastime. Per
haps a city ordinance would fit the case
better than anything.
We are glad to again place on our ex
change list the Pendleton Daily Tribune.
It starts out with a freshness and vi
vacity that is sure to make it popular.
The paper also takes a voluminous press
report, which at once gives it precedence
over every other rival in its field. Suc
cess to the revivified Tribune and its
enterprising coterie of printers who have
raised it out of the slough, of Despond,
this time, itls hoped for good.
Mr. J. Fortin has received a letter
from Father Bronsgeest, dated Decem
ber 13th at Iunsbruck, Germany, where
he had been for two days. The writer
jaays it is one ot the most picturesque
places in the world. The following
night he expected to be, in Italy, and
hoped that he would be as well pleased
aB he -was in Germany, Belgium, and
Holland. The letter is accompanied
with many beautiful views of moqntain
scenery and mountain towns, which are
triumpB of the photographers' art. Mr.
Bronsgeest gives no hint in this letter of
the date of his return', though it is plain
that is his intention from other portions
of his letter.
A crowded house greeted the cantata
at the Christian church last evening,
which:" was a very pretty and pleasing
musical event. The platform was di
vided from the auditorium by a curtain
and was occupied by a large chorus ot
male and female voices. In addition
many children, with their sweet un
trained voices, furnished an added charm
to the occasion. The cantata represented
the death of the old year and the birth
of the new, both being impersonated, as
well as Tather Time, the Sexton, etc.
The pianist was Mrs. Iva C. Collins and
violinist Mr. Burchtorf, both of whom
are known as skilled artists, and were
aided by the Mandolin and Guitar club.

What He Was Waiting For.
One of the best of "applause" stories
is related of a singer who was exceed
ingly self -conscious not to say intoler
ably conceited who, at a concert at
which he was to vocalize, handed to the
German gentleman who was accom
panying her at the pianoforte a copy
of her song marked in several places:
"Wait for the applause." At the end
of one verse there came a dead silence
among the audience. The accompanist
1 aid not finger on key, but blinked
placidly through his spectacles at the
lady.. "What are you waiting for?"
she asked in an exasperated undertone.
"I am vaitin' for de abblause," replied
the pianist, -''and he nod gom yet!"
