The Dalles and will spend a week or two

A Walla Walla paper, in speaking of
the intense heat, says that city has
broken its previous record by five de

degrees at times during the week. The

improvement as regards the depressing
atmosphere, and the rollers in the
printing offices had to be put on ice to
keep from melting.

We are informed that as . soon as the
water recedes and the Regulator can be
floated, she will be brought to this city
for repairs. Indeed this company is
contemplating in the future doing the
most of their repairing here, deeming it
cheaper and in many ways advantageous
to do eo. The expense to this companv
this season has been enormous, and the
ill luck coming as it did just at a time
when the most business is to be done,
works a hardship on them. However,

The building and machinery of the
Vancouver creamery, owned by George
M. Weigle, located one mile north of
Vancouver, on the line of the Portland,
Vancouver & Yakima railroad, was de
stroyed by fire at 8 o'clock Thursday
morning. The loss is estimated at $12,
000; insurance, $8,000. The origin of
the fire is unknown. It is supposed to
have been caused by sparks from a loco
motive which passed the creamery
about 7 o'clock. The creamery was the
largest' on the Pacific coast. It had a
daily capacity of 150,000 pounds of milk
and cream. What Mr. Weigle's inten
tions are is not definitely known, but it
is said that he will rebuild the plant,
but on a much more limited scale.
The town of Fossil, in Gilliam county,
is to have water works. A spring in the
hills 800 feet above the town and three
miles away, is to be tapped with a pipe
line and the water carried to a reservoir.
The route is easy as most of the ditch to
they last. 5
lay pipe can be made with plows. The
spring flows 55,000 gallons of water ev
ery twenty-four hours, which is ample
for Fossil's present needs. The quality
of the water is excellent. The town has
nearly enough money in its treasury to
build the water works. The town has
never been allowed to get in debt, with
the result that it has never sapped its
strength paying interest. The works
will cost from $5000 to $6000.
County Clerk Keleay has been some
what discouraged of late as regards the
scarcity of licenses which he has been
called upon to issue. Being of a genial
nature and a married man, he is always
desirous of assisting others into that
bli9sfuletate. Consequently yesterday af
ternoon when an applicant came into the
office, the emile on the countenance of
the young man was hot more bland than
was that Of the aforesaid county clerk.
The license was issued to Benjamin L.
Davison and Edith T. Potter, of Hood

R. C. Judson, industrial agent of the
O. R. & N. Co., has Deen reaping hi9
harvest on the experimental farm below
the city the past few days. With sickle

by the sweat of his brow. The cutting
of his eeyeral rows of wheat was com

wrapped in paper and tomorrow morn

Mrs. J. L. Thompson came out from
The Dalles Tuesday night, and has been
visiting with the family of Jerry Cor
coran since. The Slickstone was late on
account of the heat of the day, it being
dark on its arrival here. Mrs. Thomp
son wanted to go to the Corcoran borne
that night, so Frank Swift started for
that place, depending upon his lady
passenger to show him the road, as he
did not; know it. By some miscalcula
tion they lost the road near Monroe
Heisler's, ran' into a deep ditch, and all
were spilled but. Mrs. Thompson would
not try it again, and stopped over night
at Heisler's. In the mishap, Mrs.
Thompson managed to remain in the
bottom of the carriage nntil she feared
the horses would run away, when she
ran on her hands and knees out at the
back end, getting quite a fall, but no in
jury. Contractor Brown was aboard
when the upset came, afterwards find
ing himself nnder the wagon with the
wheels crossing back and forth on his
face. It was altogether a narrow etcape
from very serious results, Brown only
receiving a few flesh wounds. Dufur

Let Us Keep Oar city Attractive By Our
During the summer months nearly
every day brings tourists to our city,
who have come up the river for the pur
pose of viewing the grand scenery along
its banks. This is a splendid advertise
ment for The Dalles, and no doubt
much benefit is derived from it which
otherwise we would not receive.
We are often led to wonder as the
"stranger within our gates" is being pi
loted around, and is visiting the differ
ent points of interest in and near the
city, what impressions are being made
and will be transmitted to many in East
ern cities, and, petadventure, to friends
who contemplate making their homes
on this coast.
The natural advantages of The Dalles
cannot be overestimated. Situated in
the midst of the finest farming lands Im
aginable; right at the head of naviga
tion, and being the shipping point for
such a large amonnt of wool, grain,
salmon, fruit, etc., what more fitting
place could to required for a person
wishing to make his fortune in the
Northwest? As for a place of residence,
we have everything desirable. For beau
ty of situation our city cannot be ex
celled, and no more healthful place can
be found; while for churches, good
schools, and all the requisites of an ideal
home-town, The Dalles heads the list.
While this ia true, the facts must be
demonstrated to those who come aB
strangers among us, and each citizen
has a duty in this regard to perform.
Ofttimes the casual observer 18 preju
diced by the slightest circumstance, and
perhaps surroundings which to us, on
account of their familiarity, appear as
they should be, to tbem would mar the
desirability and beauty of the city. For
instance, we, who have grown accustomed
to the number of vacant lots around us,
covered in debris, have no idea what an
impression is conveyed to the unbiased
beholder. We know from whence, they
came; what a terrible calamity vieitcd
ua and how business bouses and homes
were laid waste, while the lots on which
they stood have of necessity remained
vacunt. This is unavoidable, and no
blame can be attached to the owners for
the fact. But there are many things in
this connection which might be reme
died; tumbled - down fences which
should be repaired, rubbish to be re
moved, and around them might be
placed trees, which add bo much to the
appearance" of the city.
Then, too, many are careless in the
manner in which they dispose of garb
age, and in many cases instead of being
burned, it is taken to the river-front and
deposited at ihe foot of our principal
streets, where it is snre to be offensive
to the people who stroll down by the
banks of the river in the evening.
We can do much to add to the beauty
and attractiveness of our city. Let ns
give the matter our consideration.
