medical student who disappeared three
months ago from his home in Portland
was found floating in the river hear the

Around the neck of the body was a rope
to which was attached a stone weighing
twelve pounds. Powell was one of ;a
class in the medical college of the static
university who took the final examina
tion last march, but failed to pass. - He
was of an extremely sensitive temperat
ment and, it is believed that brooding
over bis failure to pass caused him to
take his life. -
A. Smart Coyote.
Mr. Matthew Tborburn of Kingsley is
pestered with a coyote which he believes
is gifted with reason. He finds it im
possible to poison it with the most cun
ning devices, and which never fail, to
kill its comrades. He has poisoned
horse meat, mutton legs, etc., with
strychnine, which he used for baits and
with successful result except in one in
stance. Tnere is one coyote that is too
cute to be destroyed. With great dis
cernment .he avoids the poisoned por-
tions of the carcass and eats the sound
parts. If it happens there is good meat
adjoining or 'underneath the poisoned
bits, he does not hesitate to bite them
out, dropping them again to the ground.
Other coyotes have been poisoned after
ward with these discarded bits torn out
by the knowing one. Coyotes are
pretty smart animals as a class, but this
especial pet of Mr. Tborburn's is con
siderably more than a shade ahead of its
Surprise Donation Party.
A very pleasant surprise donation-
party was given Rev. and Mrs. J. H.
Wood Wednesday evening at the M. E.
church. They were called to the church
by telephone, it being represented that
a special meeting was suddenly called.
Arriving at the church they were sur
prised by the door suddenly opening and
a large number of ladies appearing, who
crowded them into the Sunday school
room. The evening was consumed in
pleasant social converse, with the added
feature of a fine lunch. The object ,of
the party was a donation, and many
valuable articles and a fine contribution
were gathered together to present to the
minister and his family, for which they

ST. MARY'S ACADEMY.
Excellent Commencement Exer
cises of Testerday Afternoen.
Those present at the commencement,
exeacises of St. Mary's academy, had a
treat not often enjoyed in our little city.
The artistic, decorations of ferns and
floweis set off , with rare elegance the
naturally pretty rooms. The stage,
with its organ and pianos, was banked
by tropical plants, and in its general
tone of pink and white made a most
brilliant and artistic background
the participants.. '
-"' The opening overture from Lucrezia
Borgia, played by the Misses Mclnerny,
Brogan, and the graduate, Miss Smith,
was a fit opening to an elaborate program.
"The Pleasures of Today." with solo
by Miss Mclnerny and Miss Mamie
Johnson, and a chorus ot thirty-six
voices, was more than wejl executed.
After this came the greeting by MissH
Effie Wakefield, well composed and well
The French dialogue, showing great
purity of accent and a most capable in
structor, was closed by a song in French,
during which Archbishop Gross was
presented with a bouquet, thanks for
which he returned in the same language.
The well-executed rose drill preceded
one of Mendel ssonn's beautiful eongs
rendered in uerman by teu young
ladies, which proved to be one of the
prettiest gems of the whole exercises. -We
find it bard to refer adequately to
the graduate's unusually, fine essay. -It
should have been heard by every dweller
in our cliff-bonnd city, and we regret
that the management were unwilling it
should be published in full. Miss
Smith's essay1 on "Echoes from the
Cliffs," referred to our own beloved city.
Speaking of the first Methodist mission
built here in .1838 near the academy
grounds,. then of the Presbyterian mis
sion and of the Catholic miesions,
which started here in 1848 and resulted
in our magnificent academy of the pres
ent day,' she closed by referring to the
beautiful sunsets daily to be witnessed
on our own Klickitata, and then was
finished a most complete and interest
ing essay. -
' The "Fantasia "Brilliante," played
with twelve mandolins, three guitarB
and two pianos, showed to advantage
the good work done in this institution.
"A Wonderful Invention," by twelve
young ladies in costumes modern, medi
aeval and ancient, was most entertain
ing. "The Minims' Troublesome Clock,"
by twenty-four little girls, was an extra
pretty selection for little girls and ex
ceedingly pretty in its rendition.
We cannot bring this report to a close
without mentioning' the cornet playing
of Miss Rose Mary Baldwin. Though
but a young girl, she shows the musical
talent she naturally inherits from her
maternal ancestors. She ' displayed
much ability and sweetness in playing
and won admiration by her efforts.
Archbishop Gross' address, which
was such as only he can deliver, closed
a mcst creditable entertainment, and
the friends of the institution feel justly
proud of the tine academy we have in
our midst. :- ;
Only a Partial Success.
There was advertised for last night a
test with a fire extinguisher on the va
cant lot near Ward, Kerns & Robert
son's livery stable. Part one consisted
in igniting a number of dry goods' boxes,
filled with kindling and saturated with
oil, pitch, tar and various highly inflam
mable materials. Part two of the pro
gram is the almost instant extinguish
ment of the devouring flames by the
acid-charged water, which is supposed
to entertain for fire the deadliest haired.
Part one was a decided success. The
flames leaped to the top of the pile with
surprising rapidity, and the whole was
soon brilliantly burning with an inten
sity equal to the most ardent desire.
The people who gathered to witness the
tree entertainment were delighted.
The fire part was splendid. Part two then
commenced. A man fearlessly stepped
to the fore, bearing a cylindrically
shaped copper receptacle with a capac
ity of only a few gallons and having a
short hose attachment. He directed a
8 1 ream from it to the fire, but when the
contents of the extinguisher was ex
hausted the fire burned almost as furi
ously as before. Part two was a failere,
and if the merits of the fire extinguisher
were to be judged by the trial, the old
fashioned bucket brigade is a safer
agency to rely upon in case of fire.
However the sympathy of the Audi
ence was with the exhibitor. . He made
no spread-eagle speech about what he
could do. , In tact he did not address a
single word to the people standing
around him. He promised them noth
ing and he invited them . not, and for
anything the audience knew, he might
have been advertising in a unique
fashion the demerits of his' competitors,,
to be followed tonight with a triumphal
exhibition of another make, of which be
has the honor to be agent.
' Many in the audience have seen the
Babcock ,fire extinguishers pat out a
blaze like that of last night in about two
seconds, and they were charitable
enough to excuse the failure of Part wo
last night on the grounds of a mistake
in the mixture. . .."'-.
