NOVEMBER 2. 1894
In tbeee days a poor devil of a man
baa a bard time of it. He can't look at
woman any more without the fear of a
suit for damages. And then the jurors
bave a fashion of closing their minds to
reaeon and opening their eyes to beauty
of the lachrymose Niobe order. Time
was when the youthful swain could
vow eternal constancy to his Phoebe.
Jane, but times have changed. The
modern man has learned that eternal
-vigilance is the price of liberty, and
lights exceedingly shy of Jthe female of
the period and her breaches of trust.
Lovers used to quarrel and then have a
delicious turtle dove of a time billing
and cooing in making up. Or if the
lady felt that she bad really been shab
bily treated, she had the strength of
character to bundle her wilholm sweet
heart out of her house and mind,
breaches of promise and all, as uncere
moniouly as she would fire the cat.
, Now the billing is done by the lawyers,
in order that "the jingling of the guinea"
may "cure the hurt that honor feels."
A case in Portland in which a former
Dalles boy figures as a defendant, shows
that our girls are getting an insight into
this breach of promise business at an
age when their respected grandmothers
were playing with their dolls, and 'were
not yet beyond the age of correction in
the good old-fashioned way by the ma
ternal slipper. The plaintiff in the case
is only sweet sixteen, and yet she sues
for a violation of a promise to marry
made eighteen months ago. It is really
bewildering to us old-fashioned people,
this rapid stride at which the younger
generation is running neck and neck
with us down the homestreth.
The strange mixture of doll babies
and love affairs, sugar teats and breaches
of promise, spoon victuals and marriage
licenses, puppy love, lawyers, guardians
id litem, and all the horrid parapherna
lia of the equity courts, are a weird and
etrange blending to mark the exit of a
THE PORTLAND FAIR.
Portland is to have the wind-up of
the world's fair. While it will not be
comparable to the white city of Chicago,
the midwinter exhibition at San Fran
cisco, or even ' the Tacorna collection,
yet it will be the biggest thing of the
kind ever held in Portland, which has
heretofore contented itself with the
local exposition. It will be a more ex
tensive exhibition, because to our local
products yill be added those of other
countries, and our local freaks will have
to look to their laurels when placed
Alongside the foreign specimens.
Mr. F. B. Hardt has arrived at Port
land and has taken charge of the busi
ness. He says he has ''been interested
in exposition work for more than twenty
years," and that he . values his reputa
tion too much to allow any inferior lot
of money-makers and alleged exhibitors
to make a cats-paw of him. Now if the
public can be as well assured that the
Turks and other fakirs will not be made
catspaw8 by Mr. Hardt, the affair will
be liberally patronized. Us plain coun
try folks have an abiding interest in
the old-time exposition, and we all de
sire to see ' them "continued.' The new
fangled additions, while looked upon as
something not necessary to the success
of any Oregon exhibit, will at least do
no harm, and therefore are unobjection
able. By: all means let.ua have the
fair. '. i -.- - .'...,.
THE LEXOW COMMITTEE.
The Lexow committee, which is ex
amining into the alleged crokedriees in
the city government of New . York, has
made some startling discoveries, That
is it has set the public to thinking ser
iously about what it knew before, that
is, that the government of the city was
systematically plundered by its officers.
The trouble with' . the committee is .that
it has awakened a great deal more sus
picion than it intended, for there are
many good citizens of this great country
who are beginning to suspect that the
Lexow committee bave profited by, the
examples of some of those it has exam
ined, and that favors can be purchased
of it. While weT are not an optimist
with regard to any politician's honesty
we do not believe the Lexow committee
has fallen down yet. We do believe
that if it is continued a month or .so
longer, that it will be besmirched with
The United States engineers have made
the preliminary survey for the boat rail
way, and are ready to negotiate for the
right o' way. We understand that
already eome pretty steep prices are
charged or' suggested to be charged.
We hope that no difficulties in this line
may be met with't'h.at will necessitate
proceedings in the courts to condemn
the lands for the right of way. It is
proper that those who own the lands
should be paid the value thereof and
any damage they may suffer by reaeon of
the building of the railway, but when
this is done, nothing more - should be
asked. The matter is one in which all
Eastern Oregon is interested to a greater
extent than The Dalles is, but we are
not greedy, and when once the rivet be
low us is open, would like to have all
our neighbors share in. its benefits.
The Spokesman-Review of ' Spokane
gives some figures which indicate that
Wallace, the Ticoma democratic boss.
has. been doing some fine work for his
party. According to its statement, the
democrats and populists have combined
or fused in a sufficient number of legis
lative districts to make it quite possible
that they will control the legislature.
Should the fusion win the nopes ot inai

YOUNG BUT A WISE OBSERVER.
Wlut a tittle French Girl Saw at av Ball
to Amuse Her.
The little French girl stood at 'my
elbow while I wrote. She was leaning
on the window sill, one little hand sup
porting her black head, says a writer .
in the New York Advertiser.. Far across
the lawn she could hear the rise and
fall of music and the sound of laughter
and of tripping feet. Red and pink
lanterns swung from the balconies in
the night breeze. I was very lonely.
It wasn't complimentary to the little
French girl, but the little French girl
did not care for dancing and I did.
Suddenly she gave a little laugh.
"Why are you giggling?" I asked
rather crossly. .
"Because the world amuses me," she
murmured. . .
A very good reason, to be sure. - But
when the world amused me I never
laughed. Patinette is more than
clever for ten years, and more bizarre
in her notions than, clever, so I asked:
"Why does it amuse you?" .'
"Well, par example, is it not bete to
dance, to dance always one way, round
and round, with, no aim to get nowhere,
only to go round, to twirl?"
"Yes; very stupid."
"And is it not bete to stay up till
twelve when one's bed is ready at
eight and one's eyes sleepy?. And is it
not stupid to wear a decollete gown
and long gloves when one's arms aro
prettier than one's neck? The worl:l
m'aiausc!" And she laughed softly t
herself, and I could not help thial;Ir
what she said was true; and I no lotis'.
envied the merry-makers, but though,
anyone would envy me my solitude a
deux and my intellectual companion.
Some moods need only a straw to bal
TWO SIDES TO THE QUESTION.
In Fitting: Spectacle Bows to the Ears
Both Must Be Considered.
Having selected a pair of frames with
a nose piece of the right height and
spread to bring the glasses into the
proper position, and having had them
fitted with glasses made in accordance
with the oculist's prescription, the- op
tician now proceeds to fit the com
pleted spectacles to your head, says the
New York Sun. You might put them
right on and wear them off just as
But no, he reaches over and places
the bows over your ears himself. Then
he tries the spectacles gently, as they
rest upon your nose, taking hold at
the outer ends of the frame, where the
bows hinge, Not just right. He takes
them off -again and smooths the bows
out between the tips of his fingers and
changes their shape a little and tries
them again. Better, but not just right
yet. He takes them again, and
smooths out and bends in a 'little
more. You observe as he hands them
to you, as he does this time, that the
bows have not only been changed
somewhat in shape, but now they vary
in sweep and curve. You put them on
and find that they fit perfectly and very .
comfortably. He touches them and
finds them right and says so. -
"But the bows are not alike," you
"No," says the optician, "but they
are now made to fi. Your ears are
not just alike. One of them is a little
bigger than the. other, and they are
not placed .- exactly alike on the head."
"What?" you say ,,and he says: "Yes.
There are very few of us that are per
fect or just alike on both sides."
