THE TOWERING HAT.
Miss Fay Fuller, of the Pendleton
Tribune, scores the legislators of New
York for undertaking to pass laws upon
so paltry a thing as the average theater
hat worn by ladies. Miss Fuller takes
the ground that "the fashion is a pass
ing one," and that "at the worst com
paratively few women offend." This
assertion proves aim ply that Miss Fuller
is young, and also that she has not de
voted much time to the stndv of that
paltry object, the tfieater hat. Ever
since we can remember, the hat, as
sported by the female theater-goer, has
been a nuisance and an eyesore, and we
do not now rt member a play that we
have seen as well as heard since the
days of our kidhood, when we could
climb into some place where the hat
could not. Indeed, the hat, or the head
gear, of the theater-going female has
been a nuisance time immemorial. 'The
primitive inhabitants of New Anister
dam had an ordinance against high
coiffures. Ben Johnson ridiculed it.
Praed dressed one of his heroines up as
being a theater-going lady, who
"Hawked and hunted In all weathers,
And stood six feet, including feathers."
The subject, if traced back, can be fol
lowed into the remotest ages of an
tiquity. Sesostrotis killed her husband,
the king, when she got a high crown on
Ham got black in the face trying to see
over his wife's Easter bonnet when he
was watching for the dove to return to
the ark ; and it is probable that the rea
son Adam did not catch on, and so pre
vent the success of the wiles of the ser
pent, was because of Eve's high' hat
preventing his seeing the ' principal
The high hat at the theater is an un
mitigated nuisance, that is passing only
in the sense that it passes from one tash
ion to another, but unfortunately never
passes from one extreme to the other.
OVR OPINION TOO.
The bill introduced in the legislature
by Mr. Rinearson, of Clackamas, pro-
Tiding for a constitutional convention in
Oregon should pass. The constitution of
this state has, long ago, outlived its use'
fulness, and many are the amendments
which could be made with profit to the
state, bnd render better service to the
people. The constitution ot thirty years
ago does not fill the requirements of to
day, and the document under which we
are working might well be consigned to
oblivion, to give place to one which
would more nearly conform to present
conditions and emergencies. It is time

If The-Dalles Chronicle desires to open
the coffin and hold up that political
corpse coon, lor his own delectable gaze
we've no objection. But the Observer
has nothing to retract concerning the
sentiment in Sherman county respecting
tne scurvy scrun. opinions may diner,
but there is no difference of opinions in
this region when a man proves to the
people that he is a scrub. Moro Ob
The Chronicle is not holding Mr.
Coon up as a corpse, or otherwise, and
has not mentioned bis name since the
fight over the senatorship began. Th
Observer, it strikes us, is the principal
mourner at the wake, and seems to be
enjoying the corpse thoroughly.
Senator Huston's homestead exemp
tion bill which passed the senate Thurs
day, places the value of exemption at
$1000 instead of $1500 as now. It pro
vides further that if the homestead ia
sold the proceeds shall be exempt; that
if the house is burned the $1000 insur
ance shall be exempt; and that in case
of the husband's death the exemption
shall be in force for the benefit of the
widow and children until the youngest
child i" 21 years of age. A method of de-
termining the valuation is provided, to
be carried out by the appraisement of
three householders, to be called in by
the levying officer, the owner being al
lowed time to raise the excess over $1000,

Minister Gray Dead.
Isaac P. Gray, United States minister
to Mexico, died at the City of Mexico
yesterday evening. He had been in
Washington,, but on account of the
threatened war between Mexico and
Gautemala he hurried back to his post.
He was taken sick on the way, arrived
n the city of Mexico yesterday morning
in an unconscious condition, and so re
mained until death claimed him. Mr.
Gray had been governor of Indiana, and
was prominently mentioned in connec
tion with the democratic nomination for
president three years ago.
Ten days loss of time on account of
sickness and a doctor bill to pay, is any
thing but pleasant for a man of a family
to contemplate, whether he is a laborer,
mechanic, merchant or publisher. Jas.
O. Jones, publisher of the Leader,
Mexia, Texas,' was 6ick in bed for ten
days with the grip during its prevalence
a year or two ago. Later in the season
be had a second attack, tie says: in
the latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy with considerable suc
cess, I think, only being in bed a little
over two days. The second attack I am
satisfied wo aid have been equally as bad
as the first butfortheuse of this rem
edy." It should be'borne in mind that
the grip is much the same as a very
severe cold and requires preciselj the
same treatment. When you wish to
cure a cold quickly and effectually give
this remedy a trial. 50 cent bottles for
