Here's a pointer for the fool who
thinks nothing worth having unless its
English. Princess May, of England,
has all her shoes made at Haverhill,
The nominees for the legislature are
well known citizens who will represent
faithfully and well the interests of their
constituency, and above all the principle
of protection to American industry,
upon the maintenance of which depends
the return of our country to the condi
tions of prosperity and security from
which it has so woefully departed under
the rule of the "tariff reforms."
Years ago, in California, says the Pen--dleton
Tribune, when Dennis Kearney
. -was in the zenith of his renown, Carl
Brown was his right-hand man, wrote
-speeches for him and in other respects
assisted Kearney in his anti-Chinese
-agitation. At that time it was known
'that Brown had less sense than Kearney.
He favored the. firing of the docks in
San Francisco in 1877, aad by his in
flammatory speeches caused the destruc
tion by fire of many millions of prop'
erty. Had Brown been in Chicago in
1887 he would have been executed along
with Parsons, Spies and the other an
archists who met their doom in conse
quence of the Haymarket riot. Brown
is a mischief-maker, and if he does not
succeed this time in getting himself
hanged ' along with Coxey and others,
whom he may be able to influence, we
will be disappointed, and 'the country
will have nothing to feel proud of in not
bringing to a timely end so worthless
and debased a wretch as Carl Brown.
If an indvidual history of the Coxey
army could be traced, it would be found
that more than half of them have a con
stitutional aversion against work. And
about 99 out o' 100 of the other half have
at some time worked for good wages and
wasted their money. A lack of thrift
will prevent anyone from accumulating
anything, and his existence will be from
hand to mouth, no matter what wages
he receives. The improvident will reap
their reward in kind. It is an inexor
able law. The same circumstances that
elevates one man to affluence will pass
by unimproved with another. Any per
son in the United States can acquire a
competency if he is frugal and indus
trious ; and if he is fortunate enough to
possess good business qualities' as well,
he may rise to wealth by the opportuni
ties for safe investment which are around
us on every band. Such conditions do
not exist today in any other country on
the earth and ft is lamentable that these
bands ot Coxey. armies rise to give to the
world a false impression of our indus
trial and financial condition. In Russia,
under an autocratic czar, these meu
would have their heads bowed in servi
tude with no thought of gathering to
gether. In the United States, taking
advantage of our national good humor,
our easy-going tendencios, they band
together for purposes of intimidating the
remainder of the people not of them.
They are not patriots, nor yet cowards ;
but they are a lot of crackbrained en
thusiasts, upon whom at this particular
time the fruits of their own laziness or
improvidence have settled, and they im
agine the government is to blame.
Friday, May 4th. The past week has
been a very quiet one in business cir
cles. Merchants have laid in large
stocks of merchandise, provisions, etc.,
anticipating an active trade. The late
spring and dull times have held it in
check somewhat, but on the arrival of
and movement of the wool clip brisk
times are looked for. At the present
time only about 65,000 pounds have
been received at the warehouses.
Quotations of produce continue steady
without any material change in any one
product. The only thing that seems to
hang on the market is butter, which is
unusual, and merchants decline to
handle it only in limited quantities.
There bids fair to be an early advance
in potatoes, as an order was given to a
certain buyer to purchase seven car
loads at once. At present, prices range
froin'40 to 50 cents per eack.
The grain market continues dull, buy
ers declining to purchase only as each
day offers inducements. Feed wheat,
that is wheat that is more or less in
jured, sells at 30 to 60 cents per sack.
These rates or quotations are regulated
according to the quality offered.
The wool situation has not changed
materially since last week. Two small
lots have been sold on private terms to
an eastern buyer.. "Wool bags are sold
at 40 ceifts in lots from one to fifty ;
larger lots at 39 cents for 4-lb bags.

of Mr. A."M. Kelsay of The Dalles.
Hon. J. B. Cleland of Portland called
at Thk Chronicle office this afternoon.
This is Mr. Cleland's first visit to The
Dalles, and as usual with all visitors for
the first time, he expresses himself as
delighted with the city.
A Possible Recruit.
A recruit for the Coxey army passed
westward last night. He appeared about
5 o'clock at the house of Mr. Chas.
Cooper, , on the bill, and asked Mrs.
Cooper for some eupper. xBefore she
could reply he espied a black cat and be
gan chasing it. He followed it around
the house until it disappeared in the
cellar. He apparently forgot Mrs.
Cooper entirety, who was etill watching
him, and he jumped an adjoining fence
and began ascending the steps of the
Rice residence. Every few steps he
would try their strength by a peculiar
motion of the body, and when he reached
the top, made the circular motion with
the hand that the cowboy employs in
throwing a lasso. Then he fished
awhile from his elevation, with the
ground for a pond. He finally caught
the eye of Mr. Cooper, who was told of
the man's antics by his alarmed wife,
and he stared straight into his eyes for a
full minute. Cooper outstared. him and
he then ran down the steps and out of
sight. Officer Jackson stopped him,
but on being satisfied he was to leave
immediately, let him go.

THE ROMANCE OF
A. Florida Flowor That V
-'.' on Human Blood.
One of the Mysteries of Nature Account
. d for in a Singular Manner
by at Melancholy His-;
.' tory. . s '
In the western part of Jefferson coun
ty, Florida, grows and blossoms intt
curious and magnificent beauty a roe
that Seems to be indigenous to a smalj
area of country, but will not flourish it
any other latitude. The bush is strong
and vigorous and the leaves are vcrv
light but glossy green. The petals curve
slightly inward and arc the color o:
bright arterial blood. The odor is pun
gent and slightly sickening, format
ing, and yet unpleasant to a marhed de
gree. LThe peculiarity of the roiso is
that the dew that drops therefrom is oi
a faint, pinkish east, a marvivl seen in
no other flower, the baffling wonder ol
those who have witnessed it. It is
called the Grant rose, and it lias a sad
and melancholy - history, which is tol:
in the San Francisco Call. Its jrigin is
one of the mysteries with, which nature
at times delights to astonish her won
dering devotees. '
- In 18S-1 John Grant and Nellie Lowry
were married. Soon after they selected
as their future home a farm in Jeffer
son county, near the Aucella river, and
in the spring of lS-'iS a child was born
to them. ' Noon after that the Seminoles
went ' on the wri::th. September 30,
l$-, was an unusually 'warm, day, and
young Grant, having' business at the
county store, delayed his trip until the
cool of the evening, when he mounted
his horse and started off, expecting to
return at nli.mt 4 a. m. He kissed his
hand to his wif'i and the crowing baby
as he rode away. Six miles from home
his horso stopped with a quick snort of
fear and tnrm-d- ::. violently that he
was almost unser.tod. Supposing that
it had l--.-.t ex t' i-1 ly- some shadow of
bush or brim', he urged it on, but a
clump of undt-rgrowth near him became
alive. :nd. af tor a sharp, ringing sound
and a puff of smoke,' hi:; horse, shot
through the, heart, trembled and fell
under him. Before ho had tiino to ex
tricate himself the red fK'iv1.:;. with a
warwhoop of fiendish triumph, were
upon him. His sculp was taken by a
savage anil his warm body ilutig into
( )ne o'clock eiirac and the young wife
in the cabin put aside her sewing and
listened r.itenlly for footsteps. The
night h;:-.l become, very dark.. The
mx.n v.r.v. hidden behind a bank of
dense clouds, and a whisper of rain was
in the atmosphere. The yellow hound'
became restless and whined as he
sniffed the air. Another hour passed
and she was alont to go to the door
when a yell blanched her check. For a
moment bhe stood, helpless and trem
bling, then, clasping her child, she
raised a loose' plank from the floor,
dropped through to the ground and
crept into the woods. Soon afterward
she saw the glare of the burning cabin.
Her flignt was discovered and she was
overtaken about two miles from home.
Two days afterward a party of hunters
found the mother and babe and buried
them. Near by a little pool of blood
had collected and had not .been ab
sorbed by the soil.- In the spring the
liusband and father was found en
tangled in roots at the bottom of the
A few years later a hunter, one of the
party that had I'ound the lxidics, hap-,
pen'.-d to be in the same hx-ality, and
on '.!ie spot v.-hcre the blood had gath
ered he saw a vigorous bush bearing
the rose that lias bsen described. He
cut come sliptj from it and took them
to the settlement, where ho related his
discovery. Such a romantic and singu
lar si'jry excited the curiosity of many
in the adjacent counties, and repeated
efforts were made to secure a growth
of the slips in other places, but failed
of success. Within an area of five miles
from the scene of the tragedy, it is said,
the rose can be found, with its tall and
sturdy stock, its pale green leaves, its
incurved erimsoa petals and its bloody
Thcty Have a Head on ICach. Ktitl aud Are
Found in India.
A snake not often heard of , at least in
America, is thr liver-colored snake with
two heads, or perhapa they should be
called mouths, though it does not have
two mouths at' tho .same time. They
are reversible mouths, occupying the op
posite end every six months. It lies with
the two ends crossed on each other, as
with folded hands. Every six months,
according to the Hartford Times, the
change, of the seasons reverses the func
tions of the two ends, tho head becom
ing the tail antUthe tail becoming the
head. The mouth at cue end heals, or
closes up all but a small opening, while
the opposite end becomes the mouth for
the next six months.
A friend of mine, sa3-s the writer, in
India who told me about this remarka
ble snake said he refused for a long
time to believe that the functions of the
two ends were reversed every six
months, but one day he. found one of
these snakes in the jungle and carried
it home, where he had a physician ex
amine it. The result was,- the physi
cian confirmed the stories of the crea
ture and my friend was skeptical no
longer, I learned no other name for
this singular reptile than that of "the
Uverveolored snake." .

She's hollow-cheeked,- dull-eyed, thin
