Mr. C. W. Travis, a New York actor,
recently from Portland, is in town with
his three little ones. He is arranging
for another home talent production
under the patronage of the Q. A. R. and
Women's Relief Corps. Mr. Travis is
a widower, and the eldest of his children,
a little girl, is 5 years old. She is
possessed of considerable talent, herself,
having first appeared before a Chicago
audience when 2 years old. At pres
ent her part in life is chiefly to see that
her two younger brothers do not get

An Auxiliary Band.
About fifteen boys or vpung men are
anted by Director Peterson to learn
and instrument musicfor the purpose
of organizing an auxilhCry to The Dalles
concert band, with a yiewsto consolidated
in the near future. Only those of good
character who have the time topractiee
need apply. (.Tuition win DeTree. A
promise will be exacted from ' each ap-,
plicant that he will practice at least one
hoar each day. It is Mr. Peterson's idea
to increase the membership of The Dalles
band to thirty pieces, and make it the
grandest musical organization west of
the Rocky mountains. Those who desire
to learn to play will call at 83 Wash
ington street, on Saturday afternoon,
when all necessary arrangements will be
made. Tnis is an opportunity which
seldom occurs to those who are anxious
to learn, and it is fortunate The Dalles
possesses a director with both the ability
and the inclination to build up a band
which will be the finest in the entire
Northwest. The Chronicle predicts
there will be no lack of applicants, and
that a local pride will be awakened
which will not stop short of the most
complete success. ' ' .

Mt. R. B. Hood enme very near losing
bis life yesterday by the pistol that

he cartridges with which it was

palled back the hammer, when a timely

Mr. Hood. "I 'don't care if it isn't

are afraid of a gen without lock, stock or

under any circumstances. Let me Bee

was' handed him, the hammer yet be
Now Mr. Hood had jast as firm a be
lief that pistol wasn't loaded as the
stranger, or he would never have
smashed his own show case.' : He bad
seen the man extract the cartridges, and
these he yet held in his band. True, he
didn't count them, but then the man
surely took them all out. He was con
fident, and so was Hood, but then he
didn't like to bare eves an empty pistol
pointed at him. Perhaps be was foolish,
but some way it made shivers ran up
and down his back.'1 It "was unpleasant
for some carious, but occult reason. ? So
When Mr. Hood reached for the pistol,
he pointed it at his show case and
snapped the trigger. . There wasr an ex

the glass, went oat the opposite side,
twenty feet beyond into some ' crockery
