Some difficulty having arisen over the
ground on which the lair has heretofore
been held, Dalles people had about made
up their minds that the pleasure which
it has afforded must be given up. How
ever, we are very glad to say that
all arrangements have been completed,
and Mr. A. S. Mac Allister informs us
that the tenth annual meeting of the
Second Eastern Oregon District Agricul
tural Society will convene in this city on
the 18th of October, lasting five days.
This will be good news, and eomethipg
to look forward to.
Yesterday just after leaving Portland
the Sarah Dixon broke one of the chains
which supports the cylinder timbers,
and in consequence came up only as far
as Bonneville and returned to Portland
for repairs. The Dalles City met her at
that place and a transfer of passengers
and freight was made, the latter steam
er returning to this city. On account of
the immense amount of freight which
the Dalles City carried, the delay trans
ferring caused her to be very late last
night, reaching here about 11 o'clock.
The injury to the Dixon was slight and
she will be ready to make her usual trip
Although numbers of oar citizens hie
themselves to various resorts every
summer to escape the heated term, this
year seems to be an exceptional one in
that regard, and the mania for escaping
to the woods bas reached fever heat.
This is as it should be. After a year's
hard work at the desk, the counter, or
tbe bench, with nothing to tary the
monotony of the continual grind, what
can be more pleasant to contemplate
than a few weeks rest beside some
mountain stream ortistening to the roar
of the ocean and bathing in its surf?
Let none who can possibly get away, if
only for a few days, miss the opportuni
ty of recuperating.

Perhaps We May Aid Oar Friends In
For over a week the residents of The
Dalles that is, those who are left here
have been patiently enduring the ex
cessive heat, with the thermometer on
its highest horse, vainly hoping that a
breeze from "Greenland's icy moan
tains," or some place nearer home,
would take compassion on us. We are
about discouraged. But still there is a
selfish consolation in knowing that
others are'in the "same boat," or a
worse one. Every exchange, which we
have occasion to peruse, relates the same
tale of woe. Not only are the towns in
Eastern Oregon and Washington veri
table sweat-boxes, but Willamette val
ley as well is suffering from tbe same
We have heard much in later years of
the influence of mind over matter, and
have been led to wonder if the theory
might not be applied with profit to our
condition at present. On every hand
are we reminded of the intense heat,
which is tbe one topic of conversation
at present, and as we meet our friends
the first greeting is, "Is it warm enough
for you?" "Isn't it terrible?" ani so on,
until one who was really comfortable
when he started out, is fairly sweltering
before -a half-dozen friends have been
met. - '
Let us give this experiment a trial at
least, and though we ourselves may be
."toasted," refrain from mentioning it to
our neighbors; but as we meet them in
stead of putting the customary question
"Is it warm enough for you?" because
we have nothing else to say, give them,
as the "slanguist" would say, the "icy
stare," or the "cold frost." Perhaps it
would aid in cooling the atmosphere.
FLOWERS FROM PALESTINE.
Valuable as Souvenirs or Rewards for
Sunday School Workers.
We have been banded the following
communication from Mrs. J. B. Haver
ly, of Boyd, who is a prominent Sunday
school worker in that vicinity, and pub
lish it with the hope that other workers
mad be aided in finding souvenirs to
give as rewards in their work.
With the communication were letters
of reference, signed by the U. S. consul
at Jerusalem, as to the character of the
missionary who bas taken this means of
obtaining financial aid in his work
Also samples of the pressed flowers were
sent, among which was the. "Rose of
Sharon." They are indeed beautiful,
and would be .valued souvenirs, comiDg
from a pluce so famous in sacred history
and beloved because of its hallowed
'Pressed flowers from Palestine,
mounted on cards, may be ordered di
rectly from Mr. f. Th. Altaresky, Jeru
salem, Palestine, Turkey. They make
beautiful souvenirs for Sunday school
workers or scholars. Mr. Altaresky,
who makes a specilty of preparing such
flowers, claims that they will retain the
freshness, color and beauty that char
acterize them in a remarkable degree,
because they are gathered and preseed
in a special way. Mr. Altaresky and
wife are Hebrew Christians, and work
among the Jews at Jerusalem, and will
be most grateful to any cne who will
assist them in earning an honest living
by purchasing their goods. The prices
of the cards are as follows : Size 4x6, 80c
per doz; smaller size, 3x4, 40c per
dozen. Mrs. A. Haverly."
FROM A MANILA LETTER.
D. C. Allard. Formerly of Boyd, Writes
to Dls Mother.
The following extracts are from a
letter written by D. C. Allard, who was
formerly a teacher at Boyd, to his mother
at Troutdale. Mr. Allard is a member
of company L, and the letter was written
at Manila :
''The boys who went ashore in small
boats and captured the Ladrones were
wet to the skin by the rain storm. ' All
the officers went ashore and brought
back lots of fruit. The islands are cov
ered with tropical vegetation, even more
than the Hawaiian islands. Life on
board ship is very monotonous, and
quarters are so cramped. Everybody
was vaccinated, and I have been very
sick from tbe effects of mine, and still
have a very bad arm. A good many are
having the measles.
"It was terribly rough on the China
sea, and even after thirty-seven days on
ship many of the boys were sick again.
A good many natives visited the boat
this morning here in Manila harbor,
with vegetables, fruit, eggs and poultry
to sell, but as our pocketbooks are very
nearly empty, no rushing business is
"Tbe islands here seem to be very
mountainous, though there is much level
land. Manila looks beautiful from hetfi,
five miles distant. The weather is very
warm, though it rains every day.
After leaving Honolulu we bad only
two meals a day," with cofiVse in tbe
morning at 7. Perhaps that accounts
for the ill-health on board."
