Uncle Tom's Cabin.
When will the time come when "Un
cle Tom's Cabin" will lo9e its charm to
the rising generation? Judging by its
present freshness, its" 'alluring- powers
will be perennial. There is ' something
in the skillful combination of the pa
thetic and the humorous that : never
fails to fascinate, -and the story, that.it
tells of the suffering of the poor slaves
appeals directly to the finest sensibili
ties of the human soul. Such plays are
better than sermon's. . They s point a
moral and adorn a tale.: They- teach us
lessons in thoughtfalness and -charity.
They impress on our triinds the precepts
of the golden rule. Mrs.' 'Stowe's "book
if one of the greatest books of literature,
because it deals with questions of im
measurable human import,. and the play
itself is one of those simple master
pieces that can never die.' If it does no
more than to keep alive the- memory of
the rise and fall of one'of the greatest
iniquities that history deals " with, it
was not written in vain. -i

Saturday night in
met in their hall
social session; with W
L. Bradshaw act-
ing as chairman
bout forty of the
ere present, accsm-
pan led by about 1
same number of
time, the fun commenced, grew, waxed
fat, fast and furious. The Dalles orches
tra was present and discoursed some its
sweetest music during the evening. At
the request of the chairman, J. S. Fish,
C. L. Phillips and J." Hampshire sang
the opening ode. and were nromDtlv
fined $3 a piece, for having the temerity
to offer to sing before ladies, when thev
all knew -they couldn't, thus bringing
disgrace on the order. The lecture was
free, going with the fine. Then Mr.
John Hampshire was called upon for a
solo, which he gaye in his best voice,
and his best is good enough for anybody.
The chairman, howeyer, was looking
closely after the lodge's reputation, and
lectured him warmly "for deceiving the
lodge with the story that he could sing,
and then getting: up and- exDosin&r his
lack of voice, ignorance of time, and
enormously uncultured ears." The fine
in his case was $3. E. Jacobsen, J.
Fait, T. J. Driver, Ted Seufert and Mr.
Fergueon were fined $2.50 each for com
ing in late, and this was no sooner paid
than John Hertz was wiled to the front,
and after listening to the chairman ex
patiate on the enormity of his offense in
getting married without consent of the
lodge, he was fined $15. On his making
a solemn promise not to do it again, the
chairman very generously allowed him
to make it in two payments, both at
once. Then the chairman's eagle jeye
fell on Dr. Siddall and he was invited to
the center and fined $10 for not bringing
a lady with him. The doctor kicked and
had his fine promptly raised to $12.
Judge Blakeley was fined $3 for putting
up hair tonic that produced bald heads.
W. H. Wilson was called ' upon for a
6tory, and as 'he refused was fined $3,
the chairman stating that bis discretion
saved him $3, for he would hive been
fined $6 if he had tried to tell one.
J. B. Crossen was fined $2.78 fy' being a
grandfather, and J. A. Orossen, who
tried to dodge the chairman's glance,
got it for $2.50 for hiding behind his
wife. Tom Kelley received earnest
commendation for his neat appearance,
nicely blacked shoes, immaculate ties,
etc., and just when be began to smile at
bis easy escape, the chairman froze his
mirth with a fine of $5 for showing him
self in the presence .of ladies with the
top of his head bare. A. S. Mac Allister
received a genuine roast for bringing his
own wife, thus setting a fearful example
to the brethren, and was fined $5.
Grant Mays was called up. "Brother
Mays," said the chairman, "it becomes
my painful duty to caution you, to worn
you, and to condemn. You fancy yon
are a ladies man 1 You spend your time
before Hhe mirror admiring yourself!

You-are too particular about your
clothes, and the cut of your ..hair and
smile! I am disposed to fine you the
full limit, and you .can walk up to the
office and pay 5 cents. Grant remarked
in a whisper that he was $2.45 ahead, as
he borrowed the money from his
mother, but the ears of -the chairman
were keen, and $2.50 was added to the
fine. H. H.Tliddell was lined for hav
ing a bad memory, he being accused of
inviting three young ladies and forget
ting to bring any. Sr. Logan was fined
$2.50 for coming alone, and W. A. John
son bad to pungle $9 for holding the
baby, and thus depriving his wife of her
inalienable rights. Max Vogt, Jr., had
to 1 settle up for "being too long on
earth," and Julius Wiley, for arresting
one of . Herbring's dummies. T. J.
Driver , was fined $1C for saying yes
when asked if he could sing the dox
ology, and Dr. Fraser was fined . the
same amount for singing that same
hymn to the tune of Annie Laurie.
Harry Lonsdale recited a poem and re
ceived a roast "for imposing a lot of
rotten doggerel on intelligent people,
and for trying to recite anything at all
in public; fine, $8. Dr. Stnrdevant was
charged $10 for having to be coaxed to
come. A. M. Kelsay paid $5 for being
too diligent in attending to the sick,
and everybody that wiggled enough to
catch-the chairman's eye, got a lecture
and a fine. The address of welcome was
delivered bv Exalted Ruler Michell,
who left nothing to be. said. As the
fines went flying right and left, the au
dience entered into the spirit of the
thing and were convulsed 'with laugh
Dancing was next in order and was
thoroughly enjoyed, the great and taking
feature being a quadrille a-la-stag par
ticipated in by eight gentlemen, most of
whom knew nothing about dancing.
Shortly after 11 o'clock the big Uma
tilla house 'bus was brought into requi
sition, and in two trips the ladies were
all taken to the Umatilla house, where,
under the direction of Steward Wilson,
as fine a supper was spread as ever
graced. a festive board in Oregon. Chair
man Bradshaw acted as toast master.
