These Men's Shoes we are now talking about -would cost about
Four or Six Dollars. Even now most dealers get from $2.75 to $3.00.
We bought them right and we intend to sell . them for. $2.50, and will
do so later. There is plenty of wear in them, they look well, fit well
and are up-to-date shoes for gentlemen. "We say now
For them, because, this prica is less than cost, is no more reason why
they are not a bargain and why you should not have some.
You will see them m our show windows as soon as we get the

THE DATE FOB MASTER.
"Thirty days hath September,"
Every persou can remember ;
But to know when Easter's come,
Puzzles even scholars, some.
When March the twenty-first is past,
Just watch the silvery moon,
And when you see it full and roun l,
Know Easter'll be here soon.
After the moon has reached its full,
Then Easter will be here,
The very Sunday after,
In each and every year.
And if it hap on Sunday
The moon should reach its height,'
The Sunday following this event
Will be the Easter bright.

This year '96 is right side up which
ever way you turn it. Upside down and
bottom side up it is still 96. As we will
have no year like it for a century, when
few of us will be here, this must be the
year for a boom.
February and March are the worst
months of the year for taking cold, and
there is quite a list of affected ones at
present in The Dalles. It is wise to
break a cold up as 'soon as possible to
let it pursue its own course is dangerous

made to ferret out the facts.

The poem "Kenneth Clair," printed
in another column is a gem worthy to be
saved from the oblivion that would ordi
narily attach to its publication in a
country uewspaper. Full of the milk of
human kindness, of ennobling sentiment
and tender susceptibility, expressed in
such chaste language, it deserves rank
among the poems of the day. Its pres
ervation does not' depend on the local
incident which gave it birth, no more
than that which inspired the production
of "The Bridge of Sighs." Both Jare
leaves taken from the volume of human
history, and form only the groundwork
for the portrayal of certain passions
shared alike by all humanity.
The A. O U. W. Flourishing.
Six hundred and fifty-nine candidates
were initiated into Detroit Lodge, A. O.
U. W., at Chicago on December 20,
1895, the largest number of candidates
ever initiated in one night, and mak
ing a total membership in Detroit lodge
of 3,300, notwithstanding there are nine
other A. O. U. W. lodges in Chicago,
one of which has a membership of over
900. When the members of Detroit
lodge all turn out there is only one
building in Chicago large enough to hold
them, and that is the Auditorium.
The total membership of the A. O. U.
W. is over 350,000. The largest gains
for December were in Eastern jurisdic
tions. Michigan leads, followed ' by
Massachusetts. . Oregon comes ninth in
the list for .December gains. There are
over 7,000 Workmen in good standing in
Oregon. The limit of assessments is $23
per annum and Temple. Lodge's largest
call has been less than $2 per month,
counting lodge dues and all assessments.
Temple lodge No. 3 has 160 members in
good standing representing a capital of
$320,000 and the lodge has had work in
night in 1896.

The l'ulpit of St. Faal'a.
At a recent meeting of the vestry of
St. Paul's church it was unanimously
decided to employ Rev. Goss as rector of
the church for the ensuing year, and his
first regular sermon will be . preached in
that pulpit on Sunday next. Mr: Goes
has gained many warm friends in the
few weeks he . has been in The Dalles.
He has filled the pulpit of St. Paul's
church gratuitously several times in that
length of time, sufficient to be recog
nized as an able and earnest advocate of
the gospel of Jesus Christ. He has
been living recently . at Milton, near
Walla Walla, but will shortly remove to
me uanes witn nis wite ana take up a
permanent residence in The Dalles. .

Wagon Road to Fossil.
Mr. Kick Sinnotl, who has just re
turned from Fossil, fida a popular agi
tation at that plade for a wagon road to
The Dalles. A largVregion of country
would be tapped b tHis road, which at
present transacts their overland trans
portation business with Arlington. Over
a year ago the Fossil people became in
terested in the proposition, and their
interest is now renewed by the near ap
proach of the opening of the locks.
Surveys were made for the whole route,
and considerable work done at the Fos
sil end, and .it is probable that the whole
road will soon be completed. The wagon
road will be only twenty miles further
than the present road to Arlington.
The distance by rail from The Dalles to
Arlington is fifty-three miles, and the
tariff charged by the railroad company
from Portland to Arlington is yet high
because of the interrupted line of cheap
communication at The Dalles. The
Fossil people, therefore, by driving only
twenty miles farther, can avail them
selves of the cheap freight rates
will ensue with the opening of the
It's rather early to make a call
On folks that 1 do not know at all;
And though social rules are new to me,
From the way I'm left 'tis plain to see
That the folks inside are not aware -
Of the gent jnst come from " Who knows Where,"
With the modest title of Kenneth Clair.
The name's all right as far as it goes,
But wbeu the same was pinned on my clothes
Jnst one word more, it seems to me,
Would have solved a needless mystery ;
Would have started me out a deal more square;
Been proper and right, and only fair,
With my papa's name after Kenneth Clair.
I cannot ring, and I cannot knock.
So I fear that someone will get a shock
If I lurk at the door in this silent way,
But I neither know what to do nor say.
I wonder, 1 do, if I really dare .
To try my lungs in t his morning air
And see if these folks know Kenneth Clair.
Just where I came from I cannot say,
Unless it was out of the Yesterday.
The stars may kuow. and I can't but think
That perhps they do, from the way they wink
i guesB 1 came irom me Anywnere,
Maybe from that big red star up there;
But the matter's too deep for Kenneth Clair.
I wish I knew these folks inside.
For this fix I'm in quite wounds my pride
Rolled up in a shapeless, helpless bunch, -Like
the worthless remnant of someone's lunch
And I feel these people are going to stare
When they look on the doorstep and find me there.
And say: "Who the dickens is Kenneth Cluir?"
I know for a mite of such tiny size
I am going to cause a great surprise,
And the neighbors will call to take a peep
At the little waif, who will be asleep;
And they'll wonder and guess, and maybe declare
That the thing is strange, and hardly fair
To the party in interest Kenneth Clair.
Ah! Kenneth Clair, the world iB wide.
And the good and bad go side by side.
And stronger than you may faint and fall,
But the mercy of God is for na all.
For He ever listens to plaint and prayer,
And the plea of the helpless from everywhere,
E'en the wail of a mite such as Kenneth Clair.
Night passes, and morning will set things right,
For a woman's heart is infinite;
And for you will be the old caress
That comes from that measureless tenderness. ,
For the heart of a mother can ever spare
For the motherless a generous Bhare;
And certainly eome for Kenneth Clair.
. Artisans Entertainment.
The Artisans gave another of their most
entertaining meetings last evening,
pleasing their friends by reading' and
song in a thorough manner. The enter
tainment opened with a medley by the
Artisan quartette of their own construc
tion, , Deing a string ol familiar negro
melodies, introducing an imitation of
the river Bteamboat whistles. Thev
Budding Knives, '
Tree Pruning Shears,
Dunne's Solid Sprays,
IEB i BEIITOir
were recalled and gave "Good Night, My
Love." Next was a recitation by Miss
Jennie Russell, in which that lady fully
sustained her excellent reputation
an elocutionist of extraordinary merit.
Miss Hattie Cram then Bang a sweet
lullaby song entitled. "Sleep, . Little
Baby of Mine," and was followed by the
ever popular duet, "Larboard Watch,"
by Messrs. Arthur and Charles Clarke.
The address of the evenibg was by Dr.
Olmstead of Portland, who interested
his listeners with arevievof the history,
objects and workings of the Artisans.
He was listened to with marked atten
tion. Mr. J. A. Perkins then sang a
solo, "Anchored," followed by Mrs. E.
O. McCoy's vocal solo "AnBwer," with
piano accompaniment by Mrs. J. C.
Crandall and Mrs. A. N. Var'ney, Both
selections were heartily applauded.
This ended the program and the balance
of the evening was devoted to dancing.
Degxee of Honor.
ern Lodge, No.. 25, Degree of Honor,
O. U. W., had a most enjoyable
meeting last night. A large number of
members were present. Under good of
the order the members enjoyed listening
to the reading of the ljdge paper by the
editor, Mr. J. F. Moore, one of the best
issues ever read. Among tne many
good things was an original poem, writ
ten by Hon. J. H. Cradelbaugh on
Kenneth Clair,", which appears else
where. The verses Jbn the little un
known waif, cared for by Mr. and Mrs.
Farley, are quite touching, and possess
that literary merit which enables one to
better appreciate the sentiments con
tained. '-. A select reading-"" by Mrs.
O. S. Waud and a song by the
lodge choir concluded the program. ' The
best of good humor prevailed during the
entire session, and the members were
reluctant to wend their way homeward
at its close.
