committed suicide Thursday by hanging
himself. The unfortunate man .was a

The building boom is still on at An
telope, and the bard times are ap
parently hot recognized. ' Work was
commenced last Wednesday morning on
the new residence of Dr. Pilkington, on
a lot which he purchased from C. B.
Dnrbin, across the street from Wingate

with a cellar underneath, and will be
another valuable acquisition to onr

Judging from the manner in which
the members of the Press Association
were welcomed and entertained during
their stay in Pendleton last week, the
climate of Umatilla county must be es
pecially conducive to geniality. Every
member of the reception committee, as
well as the citizens generally, did his
utmost to entertain, as did also the resi
dents of Milton, where they were in
vited to spend a portion of Wednesday.
And so the members of the association
returned to their fields of labor not
only benefited by .their deliberations,
but with a better idea of what real cor
diality is, and with a determination to
aid that section of the country as beBt
they can in securing every means for
the development of its resources, which
are truly wonderful.
The Forbidden Fruit.
A Threatening Blaze.
Many are the attempts to identify the
forbidden fruit. Some eay it was the
fig, others the grape, others again the
pomegranate; but the most "Arabian
Nightish" description, paints it as an ear
of wheat, which looked like a ruby and
was as big as an ostrich egg, and grew on
a tree whose trunk was like gold, its
branches - like silver and its leaves
Our first parents were expelled about
3 o'clock of the afternoon of Friday, the
10th of May, having resided in Eden
seven years, two months, two weeks and
three days. Adam was banished to Cey
lon and Eve to - Mecca, and they re
mained apart for 200 years. Adam,
according to some accounts, spent half
this time weeping, with his face to the
earth ; others, less charitably, aver that
his solitude was cheered by Lilith, who
resumed her former relations with him
When he repented and rejoined Eve,
he begged that something might be given
him from the happy garden of innocence
which he had forfeited, and lo 1 in an
ewer to his prayer, three archangels
were sent to him Michael bringing
gold, Gabriel frankincense, and Raphael
myrrh mystic gifts, in after years
associated with the offering of the Magi,
whom early Christian tradition identified
with Enoch, Melchisedek and Elias. All

Yesterday afternoon an alarm of fire
was caused by a blaze on the roof of the
Cosmopolitan. The fire was evidently
caused by a spark either from the chim
ney, or from a passing locomotive, ?s
the fire was entirely on the outside of
the shingles. A brisk wind was blowing
from the east and northeast and the
flames spread rapidly over the shingles.
A bucket brigade was soon formed, and
did excellent work surronnding the
blaze and holding it in check until the
arrival of the hose carts. Columbia got
first water but the pressure was not
sufficient, and the hose was hauled up
on the building." The steamer was Blow
in getting to the fire and equally slow
about getting steam. , - It is safe to say
that had the bucket brigade not been
formed at once the Cosmopolitan wo'uld
have burned, and the chances then for
the balance of the city towards Mill
creek would have been small.
We are not disposed to fault-finding,
but this is a case where the existence of
the city was at stake. The greatest
blame must rest upon those who have
charge of the city's waterworks. The
pressure was not on the mains, where it
should be. There is a mistaken idea
about supplying the, lower part of the
city from the lower reservoir. The bus
iness portion of the city lies below the
bluff and so does four-fifths of the prop
erty values. The city has assumed a
heavy indebtedness, for the purpose of
owning its water system. It is entitled
not only to water for domestic and com
mon purposes, but also to fire protection
Unless the pressure is kept on the lower
mains,, one of the principle objects for
which the city assumed its indebtedness
is defeated. We have escaped a dis
astrous conflagration, more by accident
than otherwise, for had the fire not been
discovered for a minute or two later, the
buckets could not ' have controlled it,
and the probabilities are there would
have been no town west of Court street.
This article is not written in a spirit
of fault-finding, but simply to call atten
tion to those whose business it is to
manage the water and the fire depart
ment to the necessity of being better pre
pared for future emergencies.
Since writing the above we have heard
all kinds of assertions concerning the
water, some insisting it was turned on,
others that the plug was not opened and
so on through the whole list of possible
criminations and recriminations. Mr.
Worsley asserts that the plug was opened
to its fullest capacity. However this
may be or where the fault lies, one thing
is assured and that is that the fire was
not well managed save by the bucket
brigade and perhaps Colnmbia hose

The boy Ryan who was lost last week,
has returned home. It seems he went
visiting to some friends, apparently un
conscious of the worry and trouble
he was causing his parents and those
with whom he had been stopping by his
action. When one considers the amount
of sympathy his absence has awakened,
and the terrible suspense of his parents,
the inclination to assist in giving him a
good spanking is almost irresi stable

The Arkansas Kiss.
Something like a year ago, while edit
ing the Glacier at Hood River, it became
our painful duty to write up a kissing
match that occurred between a young
lady who had just arrived from Arkan
sas and her onliest only, who had pre
ceded her, and whom she had not seen
for.a year. That match occurred on the
arrival . of the west-bound passenger
train, in charge of Conductor Glenden
ning, time 3 o'clock p. m. Glendenning
held the train so that the passengers
could take notes of the result, and
charged the delay up to the Columbia
river scenery. We said at the ' time
there was nothing on earth to equal the
kissing power of an Arkansas, girl, and
this assertion . has received ocular and
A few days ago three other Arkansas
ladies arrived on the morning train, and
the first bugging match was multiplied
by three. Those who saw it eay it was
worth going miles to see, and that when
lip met lip and broke away again there
was a sudden smacking together of the
air that resembled the expiring gurgle
of a bathtub. The girls each singled
out her fellow and went for him then
Since that occurrence every old bache
lor in Hood River has been inquiring
the price of tickets to Little Rock, and
each and every one of them declare that
the recent cyclone at that place was the
result of a kissing bee in the next
county. Charley Miller was in charge
of the train, and as an advertisement of
the scenic beauties of the route, held
the train for five minutes, and until the
male members of the kiesing party be
gan to show signs of weakening.
Mr. T. E. Wiley, 146 Chambers St.,

parilla cured hftn of a dry and scaly hu
mor, from which he had suffered intoler
ably. He adds :" I have not not now a
blemish on my body, and my cure is
wholly due to Ayer's Sarsaparilla."
The formula of Ayer's Sarsaparilla is
well known to the medical profession,
and universally approved. The reputa
tion of the firm guarantees excellence
and uniformity in the medicine, and the
world's experience for nearly half a cen
tury has fully demonstrated its value.
