We learn that Hon. W. H. Wilson of
The Dalles has been appointed general
attorney for the Lombard Investment
Company for Oregon and Washington, a
place filled until recently by Mr. Ellis
of Tacoma. J. C. Burkes of this city
remains as local agent for Sherman
county, a position which he has filled
several years acceptably to the com
pany. Moro Observer. - The aboye
should read that Mr. Wilson represents
the counties of this judicial district, in
stead of Oregon and Washington.
A series of revival services will be

Tuesday evening marked a pleasant
event in the Salvation Army. Two of
the members, Mr. J. Hollott and Miss
Emma Falmer, joined their fortunes and
agreed to share one another's fortunes
for better or for worse. The marriage
ceremony was performed by Justice
Davis in the parlors of the Union street
lodging house, and was witnessed by, a
large number of the Salvation Army
veterans and recruits. Justice Davis
had never faced so large a crowd be
fore in performing a marriage cere
mony, but went through the proceed
ings in proper style. The bride and
groom are well-known -workers in the
army ranks, and enjoy the love and
respect of the members in The Dalles
for their many good qualities. The
romance had its beginning in an ac
quaintance formed in the army, so the
event can be called a Salvation wed
ding in every sense of the term.

The Military Ball.
Although high expectations had' been
held of the military ball, which took
place at the armory last night," the scene
of brilliancy, which the spectators be
held, surpassed the anticipations of the
most sanguine. Never before in The
Dalles has there been a more representa
tive gathering of brave men and fair
women than that which crowded the
capacious hail last . evening. At the
time the musical program, which pre
ceded the dancing, began every seat was
taken and benches had to be brought in
to accommodate the overflowing crowd.
The building was decorated most becom
ingly. From the centre of the ceiling,
streamers of red, white and blue were
stretched to the four corners and sides
of the room, making a canopy.effect of
beauty. Long lines of evergreen trailed
gracefully around the walls, while every
where the stars and stripes greeted the
eye. "The stage resembled a young
forest, the orchestra being partly hidden
in a bower of evergreen. Stacks of arms
and the regimental and company colors
gave the scene a military appearance.
The lighting apparatus bad been supple
mented by the introduction of colored
electric 'lamps, which gave a subdued
light and varied effect. Sentries were
placed upon the sidewa'k leading to the
hall and whichever way one turned some
evidence of the military discipline was
Before the dancing began the orches-
band gave a -promenade concert of five
numbers, to which the audience listened
with keen delight. The pieces were
new and rendered in that perfectly satis
factory manner, for which the Orchestra
Union ; is famous. At 9 :30 the grand
march led by Col. and Mrs. George T.
Thompson began and the marching and
countermarching were veryprettily exe
cuted. The band bad given away to the
orchestra, and, as the soft strains of the
waltz music floated from- out the stage
the floor was immediately covered with
dancers, who through the succeeding
hours enjoyed the entrancing waltz.
The program was very neatly arranged,
the sentiment of each dance being some
appropriate phrases. Some of them
were as follows: ' i'The Third, Pride of
Oregon," "Your Wish is Our Pleasure,"
"The Fair Ladies," "The Gallant Gen
tlemen," "Here's to the Field andjStaff,"
"And Here's to tne Line," "Cannon
Balls, Cartridges and Sabres," "Co. G,
Will You Help,Us to Make It the Pride
our Oar city," "To the Charming Mu
sicians." "To Your Partner, Best of All,"
"We Hope You Have Had a Merry
Christmas," "Taps." Between the third
and fourth dances, Hon. J. H. Cradle
baugh made a most excellent five minute
talk upon the militia. Mr. Cradle
baugh, as everyone knows, possesses the
happy faculty of knowing just what to
say whenever he is called upon." In
thought and expression ' his speech was
a model for an occasional address and
the speaker was interrupted with hearty
applause.. Mr. Cradlebaugh closed with
a graceful ; bon mot, when " be praised

non's mouth or any other." The
speaker was giyen three cheers for his
appaeciated words. Till after midnight
the dancers held full sway, and when
the ball was over, those who had enjoyed
the evening's pleasure were unanimous
in declaring it the nonpareil of the social
events in The Dalles.
The committees in charge of the affair
and to - whom the credit is due for its
great success were as follows : Recep

Christinas Kve Observances-
Christmas eve was observed in The
Dalles in the old-fashioned but ever
pleasant style. At the Christian and
Methodist churches, public exercises
were held, which drew large audiences.
At the Christian church an interesting
Drogram was rendered, after which the
gifts were distributed and then a general
good time followed.'
The exercises at the Methodist church
were very appropriate. The church
was tastily decorated, while on the pul
pit platform two large trees stood forth
emblazoned with light and heavily hung
with all manner of Christmas( remem
brances. The program consisted of sing
ing by the school, followed by cn ad
dress, "Why We Observe Christmas,"
by Rev. J. H. Wood, who made a few
remarks appropriate to the occasion.
Mr. Breece, a gentleman who has been
in Palestine, gave an interesting talk
of some of his experiences there
Miss Nellie Clarke gave a well rendered
recitation. After an anthem by. the
choir, the gifts were distributed under
the supervision of Mr. John Parrott, as
sisted by a number of young men of the
church. A large number of people were
the recipients of presents, none of the
Sunday school children being unremem
bered. The occasion was a very pleas
ant one and will be long remembered
by the little ones present.
