evening at the Congregational church.
The ' following officers were elected :
President, Mr. G. W. Phelps ; vice pres
ident, Miss Rose Mich ell; secretary.
Miss Newman ; treasurer, Mr. J, M.
Huntington. The Dalles has long been
in need of such a society for the benefit
of the voune people, and old as well.
and an opportunity is thus offered for
all who desire to enter heartily into the
work to do so. Do not Bit idle by and
complain that The Dalles has no advan

society next Wednesday evening in the
Epworth hall of the M. E. church, and
so improve this opportunity.

Mr. W. H. Butler of Caleb was in the
city yesterday and made us a pleasant
call. He showed us a specimen of
quartz taken from a mine recently-
located by him in Spanish hollow. The

The f'beautiful time" is here. Bright
warm sunshine after a warm shower
last night. Although the leaves -are
turning, suggesting the pinching cold
in the near future, now the sky is clear,
the air. warm and soft, yet braciifg-, al
most leading one into the delusive error
that surely this splendid weather must
last forever. So far in the season there
has been but little rain since -the rains
of September; but we h'avejnot been in
need of more. The grass on the hills is
excellent, better than for years before.
Where the hillsides have been bare for
yeras", now there U grass in abundance.
Although the mountain; ranges as usual,
is entirely eaten out, stock, in general
are in excellent indittQip.Uhough,. we
complained of too much rain this spring,
we must thank that rain for our fine
grass this fall. -, V. -. . -
I received" a letter from Payette,
Idaho, one day last week, stating that
bay was selling at $3 and $4 ; wheat 60
cents per 100 pounds; potatoes one-half
cent per pound, and other things
equally as cheap. Everything that is
tried to be grown yields an abundance.
Hops can be grown in great perfection
as well as :' cereals and 'vegetables.
Money is as scarce there as here. '
Wade Shrum and his wife are up from
their home, Cherry, Creek,' and report
everything in excellence there. They
say Mrs. Good has some of. the finest
fruit ' near here. I know that to be a
fact in one respect, for I had the good
fortune to sample some of the grapes
from her place; also lean speak in high
favor of the fruit that came, from Burnt
Ranch. Those places seem well adapted
to fruit growing. ; There is always
plenty of fruit there when there is, per
haps, none any place near. -

of young horses on the wheel that took
fright. - They started to' run down the
grade just east of Antelope. In attempt

cramped and turned over, throwing Mr.
Keyes on the barb wires below the
grade. His head struck the wires,

around his. head, and almost scalped

more. Mrs. Keys started to him this
morning, alone with her, horse and cart,

A. False Report.
There was a report in "circulation yes
terday that Agent Hill and some others
had been arrested on account of the ex
press robbery, and a statement appeared
in the Portland papers that be had been
discharged. In justice to Mr. Hill, it is
propei to say that the officers deny that
any arrest has been ' made aa does' also
Special Agent Beckwith. , , . The latter
also" informs us thaVMr. Hill has- not
been discharged. It :s not likely that
any arrests will be madd until some sort
of evidence is discovered that will justify
it. ' At present .the case is certainly t
much larger one than the detectives-an'
ticipated, and there is nothing that can
be called evidence implicating anyone
discovered up to date. y '
