Sheriff Kelly made a very hurried trip
to Salem yesterday, taking with him
Thoe. Riley and Curly Keith. The for

the penitentiary for larceny from the

he being the culprit who stole money
from the pockets of clothes which were
hanging in the purser's office on the

16-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Mc

DEATH OF MRS. GRACE CONDON
She is Suddenly Called Away on Sunday
Morning After a Very Short lllneHS.
The peaceful qniet of the Sabbath
morn gave place to awe and sorrow
yesterday morning from home, to
was borne the sad news that with the.
rising of the sun came also the messenger
from the spirit world and summoned
Mrs. Wm. Condon to the realms of
eternal sunshine where cometh no night.
Perhaps the shock would have been
less intense had her sickness been of long
duration ; but many of her friends were
not aware that she was ill. Indeed, but
three days had elapsed since she had
been seen upon the streets in the beet of
health and spirits. Wednesday evening
she was feeling slightly ill, and as the
disease developed it proved to be tonsil
itis, which finally so took hold of
the system as to cause heart failure.
Saturday evening, as she seemed much
worse, her sister, Dr. Gertrnde French,
was telephoned for at Portland and ar
rived on the midnight train. She, with
Mr. Condon, kept watch during the
night. The remainder of the family,
never dreaming but that as soon as
quietness and sleep came to her she
would be better, went to their homes
Grace seemed very restless, complaining
of being "so tired" and finally said to
her eieter, "Gertrude, I'm going to die."
Upon being asked if she were afraid, she
answered "No." She grew rapidly
weaker, the heart seemed to beat fainter
and at about 4 o'clock, before the rela
tives, who had been summoned, reached
her bedside, she "passed through glory's
morning gate and walked in paradise."
Grace French was born in Stanstard,
Canada, on Oct. 30, 1867, and came to
The Dalles with her parents when but a
child, where she has since lived, with
the exception of two years, which were
spent in the Boston Conservatory of
Music. She was graduated from the
Wasco Independent Academy in 1884,
and was married to William Condon
Nov. SO, 1SS9. She was an earnest mem
ber of the Methodist church and allied
with its every interest, being the leading
sop-ano and main stay of its choir until
she was culled to join the "Choir in
visible." In the many walks of life
where her sweet, gentle presence was
wont to be felt, will she be sadly missed ;
I but more particularly in the home, where
wiu nouiesc,nignea( cnaracieriBticB oi ner
nature were displayed, will the husband
and little 8-year-old son, Clifton, seek
for her in vain.
She leaves beside her husband and
child, a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs.
b. French, a brother, frank, and Bister,
Dri Oertrnde, with, all of whom she
seemed to be a favorite, being of a cling'
ing, trusting disposition.
Funeral will take place tomorrow af
ternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence.
