Pretty a a Best. Girl.
The Dalles just now 'is at her very
prettiest,' and that means that she is
just a little bit more handsome than any
other town 'in the Northwest. The
western portion of the city, that was
fortunate enough to escape our great fire,
is simply a bower of shade and blossom.
In the burned district many handsome
residences have been -built and the
thrifty young poplars are already shoot
ing their heads high in the air. In a
few years that part of the city will be
again what it used to be as far as shade
is concerned, and much improved in the
character of its buildings. We have
been away four years and feel again like
we were home. God bless The Dalles.

by being again placed in charge of the
Old Time Friends.

A Splendid Xrip.
The trip from here to Portland by boat
is just now one of the finest on the con
tinent. It is always a voyage to be re
membered, but just now while the grand
old Columbia is' up and surging, sweep
ing everything before, it, it will repay
even those who have made the trip to
repeat it. The weather is just warm
enough to temper the cool breeze of the
river ; the air clear, so that the embat
tled bluffs and beetling crags show in
all their magnificence.. ..Then . there, is
ever' the grand sweep of the grandest of
American rivers, the resistless plunge of
the massive torrent over the. obstruc
tions at the Cascades, and the wild race
of leaping waters through the narrows
for six miles, and then again the placid
bosom of the lake stream below. The
banks are masses of emeralds, foliage
tropical in. its luxuriance, and innumer
able bloom of tree, vine and plant de
lighting the eye and tinting each zephyr
until it rivals the lazy breezes of rose
perfumed Cathay. he tourist, who
neglects to leave the cars here and com
plete his or her trip to Portland by river,
makes a mistake that they would regret
forever could they realize what they
have missed. '

Queer Chinese Customs. .
The first ambition of every China
man is to have a splendid coffin. .A
poor man will starve himself for years
to have one. It is always received with
great ceremony on its arrival at the
house, and is regarded as the most val
uable piece of furniture in the establishment.-
It is kept in the place of
honor. No one is ever buried till there
is ready money enough in the house to
do so without the family running into
debt. 'There are many strange cus
toms connected with the funeral rites.
One of these is the burning at' the
tomb of paper horses, idols, umbrellas
and clothes. These are supposed to be
necessary and useful to the man when
he gets to Heaven. By being burned
they undergo some material resurrec
tion and meet him there. -
A Suspicious Circumstance.
In a Maine town 4 little while ago
the - local champion liar was brought
up before the justice for stealing hens.
It was a pretty plain case, and, by the
advice of his lawyers, the prisoner
said: "I plead guilty." This surpris
ing answer In place of the string1 of lies
expected staggered the justice. He
rubbed his head. "IgTiess I'm afraid
.-ell, Hiram," said he, after a thought
ful, pause, "I guess I'll have to have
more evidence before 1 sentence you."
The American Peace society is offer
