good." In Sherman county the reports
are not disparaging, but proceeding east
ward into Morrow and Umatilla coun
ties they assume a different tone. In
Morrow county the grain has undoubt

much of it, is being cut for hay. In
Umatilla county the result eeema to de
pend upon the future character of the
weather. Should cloudy weather and
rain occur, a correspondent states, the
crops would not be damaged. The ex
pected and desired rain has occurred and
the weather has become decidedly cooler.
This may be a relief to the situation
though the rain was light. South and
east of the Blue mountains, and espe
cially in Union county, the grain
crops will be especially good. The
warm weather was frequently in
terrupted during the week by thun
der storms from which considerable
rain resulted. At Union, Union county,
thunder storm occurred on Thursday,
which was attended by heavy rain aad
bail sufficient to wash out gardens and
damage the fruit; some grain was also
tangled. An exceptionally good crop of
cereals will be harvested in the Grand
Ronde valley. Farmers are making
good progress with haying. A fair crop
will be secured. The first crop of al

Mr. Edwards Davis lectured to a fair-
sized audience at the Christian church
last night, his subject being "The
Science of Art." Though the lecturer
has scarcely more than reached man's
estate, the lecture reveals . the pleasing
faculties of the trained reasoner. Those
who listened carefully to the poetry of
his words, his most effective delivery,
his grace and oratory, were for the time
transmigrated to a world apart from the
day's humdrum existence, and in this
new sphere were enabled to grasp and
retain many beautiful thoughts, which,
like a rapidly-shifting panorama, were
exposed to fleeting view by the marvel
ous word-picture artist before them. A
listener's mind, unused, to such intel
lectual feasts as spread by Davis, is in a
somewhat dazed condition at its con
clusion. A surfeit of beautiful thoughts
leaves tne ' intellect drunken with a
stupefying though ecstatic pleasure, a
disordered frame of mind in which he
does not know whether to approve or
condemn, but indubitably good for the
soul for having once been lifted from the
dead level of everyday influences.
Mr. Davis possesses much dramatic
ability ; he is a natural actor and has the
soul of a poet. He apoetrophized a field
daisy in a most remarkable manner, ex
periencing the gamut of sensations from
pleased appreciation to passionate ad
miration and awe over its wonderful
mechanism and its Maker. He divides
the arts into periods of time, assigning
each a certain location. First was archi
tecture, next came sculpture, next paint
ing, next music, next poetry, and last
will come oratory.
The present age he believes the cul
minating one for poetry, and assigns a
higher plane for Longfellow, Tennyson,
Bryant, Swinburne, James Wbitcomb
Riley and all, than' for Homer, Dante,
Milton and Shakespeare. The later
poets write of human experiences; the
older ones of mythical and allegorical
euDjects wmcn Humanity cannot sense
nor feel. The age to come, of which we
are just on the eve, is one of oratory

Night had settled upon the city and in
the quasi-darkness neither his features
nor apparel could be noted with any de
gree of accuracy. At the conclusion of
his addrees a collection was taken up by
a younger companion and the email
crowd thoughtfully dispersed. The ob
server, pleased with the fragment of the
speech he had heard, stepped up to him
aud addressed him. A short conversa
tion ensued, and a email number of
people began again to cluster about him,
when the nightwatchman . happened
along, and not appreciating the
situation, ordered the fellow to move
on. He replied most courteously and
prepared to follow the officer's com
mand with no show of anger or surprise.
The observer invited him within doors
and discovered, when the . room wes
lighted, he was in rags.
"You seem euprised," said the va
grant. "I am a gentlemen of education
and refinement, yet you see me tonight
in rags without money enough to pur
chase my lodging and breakfast." He
then went on to explain that he could get
no kind of employment, and that he was
compelled to follow the road and do as
ihe officer had so a little time previ
ously ordered, "move on." In his
travels he had- met another in the same
predicament, but younger and not so
able to care for himself. He decided
therefore on reaching The Dalles to make
an open air speech on the steets, the first
he ever delivered outside of a ball, hop
ing that he could get a collection large
enough to pay for lodging and breakfast
for the two. The collection he admitted
amounted to 35 cents. When aeked
where he was going, he replied he was
en route to some educational institution
in Montana, where he hoped to secure a
position as an instructor in Greek and
Latin and other higher studies that
might be demanded.
