The funeral services of Mrs Mary
Lacy, who died a,t her residence on
Fourth street Wednesday evening, took
place at St. Peter's church this morning
at 9 o'clock. Mrs. Lacy was one of the
oldest settlers of The Dalles, having re
sided here for the past forty years. She
was about 80 years of age and a devout
member of the Catholic church. She
leaves considerable property, and, as we
understand, has no relations in this part

A great deal of merriment was occa
sioned last evening by the attempts of
some of our good citizens to have their
lungs tested. A contrivance had been
prepared, which was certainly ingenious.
It was an innocent looking affair and
one was easily persuaded to blow into it.
When they did so, they received a charge
ofaoot in the face. One of the Chronicle
men happened down at the Umatilla
l last evening, and in monkeving with
1 the thing, got his face and glasses paint-
fed black. The Mountaineer man heard
.'something about the affair and gave it a
'good write-up, when unfortunately he
began to experiment with the thing, and
in a trice h5a face wa8 B8 back a8 the ace
of spades. He confidentially told Judd
Fish that he had "killed" the article he
.had written. The crowd of bowlers at
the club last night were horrified when

like he had been shoveling coal for a
week with no chance to wash.

ber of press notices we eelect the fol
lowing: I The concert given at the Congrega
tional church last Tuesday evening was
worthy of more than a passing mention,
for it was one of the finest that has been
given in this city for some time. Asto-
rians are ever ready to appreciate tbe
beauties of music, as was evidenced by
the large audience that assembled to
bear Miss Gladys Jones and her able as
sistants. Her voice is one of more than
ordinary power and sweetness, and it
commands absolute attention from the
first bell-like tone to the last faint echo.
Her pieces, being among the best, were
nicely adapted to show the scope and
range of her contralto voice. Astoria
Miss Hattie Stevens of Lewiston, Ida.,
who has passed her examination before
the commissioners to appear as pianist
at the world's fair, has arrived in the
Garden City to prepare herself for her
task, under the tuition of Prof. Jean
Holtbuer. Miss Stevens studied under
Prof. Holtbuer in Lewiston, Ida., for
more than a year and the professor is to
be congratulated upon having brought
to light such a talented young artiste.
Ladles Day at tne Club.
Yesterday the Commercial and Ath
letic Club went into the hands of re
ceivers, the lady friends of theyblub tak
ing complete -charge of ""eterfrthing in
sight. By a resolution of Ufetruetees,
passed some time ago, each 'huraday is
set apart for the ladies, and yesterday
was the first of the days so observed.
From 1 p. m to 6 the beauty and fashion
'of the town were well represented in the
club rooms. The gentlemen had gener
ously distributed their cards, so that the
delegation of visitors was large.
Tbe bowling alley was the scene of
most interest, and here it was the ladies
spent most of their time endeavoring to
throw the balls so they would keep on
the narrow path. Miss Sula Rucb
proved the most successful and carried
off the bowline honors with a score of
20. The billiard table and gymnasium
were well patronized, and altogether the
ladies much appreciated the afternoon's
All the club lacked was the hearty
support of the ladies, and that deficiency
is now most satisfactorily filled.
