Some very fine trout are being caught
from '" Hood River, near the railroad
bridge. The water is Yery milky, from
which we judge bait must be used, as a
fly would not be visible. We saw one
yesterday (a trout and not a fly) that
weighed over three pounds.
Will Langille, the genial proprietor of
Cloud Cap Inn on Mt. Hood. 'tells us
that he has been examining into Pro-
lessor alb's theories concerning the
earthquake and resultant tidal wave
now due, and finds the professor is right
in his theory but wrong in his calcula
tion. Instead of the wave being sixty
feet high it will be 60,000 feet. This
makes Cloud Cap one of the few safe
places on the coast as its altitude is
Lieutenant Crosby and four of his
boat's crew were drowned in the surf
near the mouth of Jo creek, fifteen miles
north of Gray's Harbor. He was in
command of the U. S. steamer Mc-
Arthur. There were fifteen in the boat
when it upset, ten being saved.
There is good run of silverei,des in the
river, but as it is against the law to catch
them they are of no use to humanity.
They are the last fish to coine and under
the peculiar fish laws of this state, go
entirely free. The season ought to be so
arranged that at least a portion of the
silverside run could be caught.
We were told yesterday in Hood River
that another person would be eent up in
a day or so to be examined as to his or
sanity. We guessed pretty nearly every
body in that neighborhood, but were
told we had not named the right one,
though for that matter it doesn't much
matter which one they bring.
The little 4-year-old eon of Mr. and
Mrs. W. H. Allen fell off the porch of
the Mt. Hood hotel at Hood River yes
terday evening. It was thought at first
an arm had been broken, but Dr. Bro-
bius, who attended the little fellow,
stated that there was a severe wrench of
the elbow joint, but no broken bones.
The weather still maintains its phe
nomenal torpidity, and everybody swel

They don't even write to tell a fellow

that many of our citizens will let go and
come home until the weather cools or
the Falb tidal wave brings them along.
Mrs.. Lewis, an aged lady, arrived yes
terday on the west-bound passenger,
and is at present at the Umatilla House.
She is quite sick and has no relatives or
others here to whom she can look for
support. It seems she is given to wan

As. a result of judicious advertising,
we make mention of the fact that The

Saturday night, before Jess Crandall
had his stepladder back. A lady reader
of Thb Chronicle at once reported to
him that a stepladder had been left at
her house by some painters, and to call
and examine it. Jess recognired it at a
glance, and when he came home the
ladder reposed gracefully on his shoulder,
only at such times as it tried to tangle
its legs with his.
The editor of the Heppner Gazette
was personally acquainted with John
Hansen Craig, who recently died in the
East, with the record of being the heavi
est man in the world, and says the fol
lowing statement made by Mr. Craig is
correct: "I now weigh 907 pounds, and
am 36 years old. At birth I weighed 11
pounds, at 11 months I weighed 77
pounds, and at 2 years 206 pounds. At
that time I took $1000 premium at Bar-
num'i baby show in New York city in
1858. At 5 years I weighed 302 pounds ;
at 20, 551 pounds ; at 22, 725 pounds ;
at 28, 794 pounds ; at 30, 936 pounds,
with the present weight of. 907 pounds.
I am 6 feet 5 inches high, measure 8
feet 4 inches around the hips, 18 inches
around the ankles, 49 inches around the
thigh next to the body, and required 41
yards for a suit of clothes and three
pounds of yarn for a pair of stockings.
It Might Have Been.
We were shown a letter this morning
written by a stranger from the Eastern
states, who has been here, to a gentle
man of this city. The letter is a curt
condemnation of The Dalles and all its
surroundings. The writer says that he
intended to locate here, and expected to
circulate whole lots of money, but that
he changed his ' mind, and now he
wouldn't let go of a cent in Wasco I
county ; no, sir, not if he got two back. .
The reason he gives for this sudden re
vulsion of feeling is that he was "charged
twenty-five cents for a very poor ten
cent Bhave," and he concluded therefore
that we were thieves and robbers un
conscionable. And so he took his dishes
and his doll babies, quit paddling in our'
rain-water barrel and sliding down our
cellar door, vowed he would never,
never swing on our gate, or play with
us any more, and went away mad.
He was going to circulate just whole
lots of money, but he will never, no
never circulate i( now. And yet one
would . think that to amputate the
whiskers that found root in that ada
mantine cheek were well worth two bits.
A Balloon Ascension.
The balloon ascension advertised to
take place Saturday afternoon at ' 3
o'clock, was postponed on account of the
wind, until Sunday morning at about 9
o'clock. The ascent was very pretty, a
height of about a thousand feet being
reached.- After dropping 10,000 coupons
for A. M. Williams & Co., the parachute
was detached from the balloon and
floated gracefully earthwards while the
balloon turned upside down, and as the
gas escaped came wriggling downward
like a great tadpole. The aeronaut
landed safely, in the block by Mays &

.Last night about 9 o'clock a series of
flashes, resembling the Aurora Borealis,
were observed. The flashes seem to
come from all parts of the heavens, but
most of them appeared to travel from
west to east. There are many opinions
concerning it, some maintaining it was a
genuine display of Northern lights,
others that it was the flash light from
the Monterey, others yet, that it was
the electrical department of the tail
ender fairatTacoma, while some insisted
it was caused by the president commun
ing with the Gorman bill.
Last Saturday afternoon at Lena Cas

teams were unhitched and led to the
barn. The hindmost horse was stand
ing in the barn door when a flash of
ligbthing struck the animal, killing, it
instantly. It singed the hair all off the
horse and set the straw afire, and it was
with difficulty that the barn was kept
from burning.-Prineville News.

Daring Trick Intended to Pervert the
Meaning; of a Man's Imposition.
"One of the most daring tricks I ever
came across," said a New York attorney
the other day, according to the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, "was in the case
of a man who deliberately impersonated
a lawyer's clerk and persuaded a very
sick man to sign a will without reading
it and which disposed of his property in
direct opposition'to his wishes. It was
a case of a family dispute, and the old
gentleman, who was quite wealthy,
had decided to disinherit his eldest son
and leave the property to a younger
one. Being warned by his doctor that
he Jia'd only a day or two more to live
he sent instructions to his attorney to
draft his will and send it down prompt
ly for signature. .
"While the lawyer was preparing the
document a representative of the eldest
son arrived with, a paper, which he said
was the will prepared by the sick man's
attorney. The will was signed with
out hesitation and duly witnessed, and
when, two txours later, the lawyer's
clerk arrived with the genuine will he
was not allowed to enter the house,
being warned off the premises by the
housekeeper. On his return to the of
fice his employer saw at once that a
fraud had been committed, and he
hastened to the house to have it set
right. In the meantime, however, the
sick man had become unconscious, and
he died without being able to execute a
will after his own wishes. The bogus
will was upset, but the fraud could
never be sufficiently proved to convict
the man suspected of concocting it, and
he inherited quite a large sum of money
as the next of kin."
