thirty-five years ago, in 18G2,
Pentland came to The Dalles
with his family, consisting of a daughter,
Anna Pentland, now Mrs. S. L. Brooks,
and two sons, Ed. C. Pentland, who is
now here visiting his sister, and Charles
Pentland, who died when a small boy.
The first water works here were put m
by Robert Pentland.
In conversation with a Chronicle re
porter Mr. Pentland recalls inan3' in
cidents of the early days. In tb old
school house under the bluff, near where
Captain Coffin lived, be learned his A
B C'a, under Miss Mollis Snyder. At
that tune Oliver White, lately Stale
printer of Washington, and Joe D.iy, the
detective, and Tom Parrott, the artist,
were going to school. In those days
Fort Dalles was occupied by several
companies of soldiers. The fare waB $12
for passage on the steamboats from,
Portland, and freight 50 a ton. Front
street was the business street. The
postoffice was in Waldron Bros.' drug
store, the stone building now standing
vacant. In those days coal oil was $1.50
a gallon, and apples were worth 10
cents each or three tor a quarter. Small
change was unknown. It was the
"long bit" and the "short bit."
Mr. Pentland lived in The Dalles
sixteen years, and left here about nine
teen years ago. The boys and cirls of
those days be now finds men and women
some of them heads of families while
the children are themselves in business.
He recalls the names of Hope, Dill and

girl schoolmates of those days.
The people of The Dalies weTe always
noted for their sociability, and in those
days the young people engaged them
selves as much if not more than now.
Mr. Pentland siys he has never had
Anything but the very pleasantest mem
ories of The Dalles.
"I want to say one thing to the news
papers of The Dalles. It is a mistake to
burn up' the capitalists of your town,
and try to force enterprises. I find
human nature the same everywhere,
and the place of a newspaper is to point
out where-money can be profitably in
vested in your town, and you will find
that your men ot capital are just as
eager to invest in profitable enterprises
as iney ever were, ine ualles is a
splendid business town, and baa a
brilliant future. A permanent in
vestment which would pay property
owners is the paving of Union street
from the Umatilla house to the bluff,
and Second street from Union street to
the warehouses; out unless the property
owners see that it will actually pay
them to make such an investment it
will remain undone. Then again an
agitation by all the newspapers showing
how profitable to the stockholders would
De the development of toe immense
water power near here would finally
bear fruits and The Dalles become
manufacturing city. The Dalles has a
great deal of available capital, and if
the newspapers show where it can be
invested, with assurance of interest on
the outlay, the surplus money will be
invested at home. The Dalles bears the
reputation abroad of being an enter
prising town. Your business men hare

has proved its effectiveness in cur
ing the trying affections of the
throat and lungs, and this is ths
reason whyi the cod-liver oil, par
tially digested, strengthens and
vitalizes the whole sys
tem; the hypophosphites
act as a tonic to' the
mind and nerves, and the

you think of any combi

There are ominous signs of an awak
ening of Moslem fanaticism, following
the Turkish victories in Greece. When
those victories became known, Moslems
in India, Africa and Arabia sent mes
sages to the sultan, appealing- to him
to lead a war ag-ainst unbelievers. The
commission called the Council of the
Jehad, or Holy War, which has been
sitting at Constantinople, has sent en
voys to the various sheikhs and ulema
of Egypt, Arabia and India, admonish
ing' all true Moslems to be ready to
make any sacrifices at the demand. of
the caliph. In India a British officer
has been murdered, and the lives of
others threatened, by natives; and a
Mussulman mob at Calcutta was . so
violent that a considerable force of
troops was required to subdue it. Suc
cessive disasters of plag-ue, famine and
earthquake have caused a kind of de
spair among1 large classes of the popula
tion, and an intense feeling- against the
government, which is blamed for all
the misfortunes. Youth's Companion.
