Those settlers who are claiming for
feited lands under act of Sept. 29, 1890,
that are situated within the limits o
the tract claimed by The Dalles Military
Wagon Road Co., and who have hereto
fore made tenders of money on tbe same
with a view of purchasing, need not
make another tender before the expira
tion of tbe time when forfeited lands can
be purchased, viz: Jan. 1, 1899. This
information is made by the Chronicle
for the benefit of its readers who are in
terested in tbe same.
One of the neatest and yet most artistic
holiday numbers of a newspaper we
have yet seen is that of the Telegram,
which reached us this morning and put
all other exchanges in the shade. The
cuts of Portland and scenery throughout
the state are well chosen and some of
them are very prettv. Portland is par
ticularly beautifully situated and the
view from some of her buildings is
grand. This number of the paper is just
the thing to send to friends in the East;
as it gives such a good idea of Oregon
and its industries.
Before leaving Manila Arthur Stub
ling made it a point to call on each one
of the Dalles boys and received any mes
sages they might care to send home. He
left them all well, except Jim Elton, who
was in the convalescent ward of the
hospital ; but as his card (which they are
compelled to show) said "full diet"
Arthur thinks he must be getting along
all right. He also says 'Fatty" Brown
(who can no longer be called Fatty is
the life of the company', and succeeds in
keeping up the spirits of the other boys.
They are anxious to come home and will
receive the news of their muster out
Mrs. L. Armstrong was delighted this
morning to receive from her two boys,
Alexander and W. E. Bonner, who are
now at Manila, a long letter, enclosing
pictures of them both and a beautiful
silk handkerchief, on which were the
likenesses of McKinley, Dewey andMer
ritt. Mrs. Zirka also received a hand
kerchief and letter from her two boye.
The latter said that when the articles
sent by the emergency corps here were
delivered to them, he was given what
they call a housewife, containing pins,
needles and necessary articles, which
wasmade by Constance Whealdon. y
Yesterday S. L. Brooks received a
letter from Mr. P. H. Camming? who
now resides in Fredonia, California, but
who will be remembered by old Dalles
residents as having lived here in the
early '60's. Mr. Brooks bad not heard
from him since '71, when he met him in
San Francisco. He wrote to inquire
concerning friends here and mentioned
the names of Robert and William Grant.
The former died in Scotland several
years ago, while the latter ie now in
Dawson City, Alaska. Mr. Brooks in
answering gave a very flattering, but
deserved compliment to The Dalles and
the improvements made since Mr. Cum
mings' residence here.
... From Mr. H. Richards, who is in toA
day from the Liberty district, we learrt
1 1. , r l e . r . . .
uiu mo luuerai 01 oxtb. jt&eese was neia
at A. C. Rice's place on Thursday and!
the body taken to Dufur for burial.V He
says the "services' were' doubly"sad, tak
ing place in tbe room where Mr. Gard
ner, who was badly injured, was lying.
Mrs. Reese was 45 years old and left
four children, tbe eldest a son 21 years
old and the youngest a little girl of 5
years. A strange incident was that
some time before the fatal trip Mrs.
Reese bad expressed a wish to her son
that if anything should happen to cause
ber death before she was married she
wished to be buried in her wedding
dress, which wish was granted. Tbe
drees was a dark one, but in ber hands
and on ber breast were placed some
white chrysanthemums which had
thoughtfully been sent out by Mr. Bach
ler. Mr. Gardner who was removed to
Dufur, is getting along remarkably well
and will no doubt recover.
Postmaster Croasman having been re
quested, in the interest of relatives and
friends of soldiers in tbe Philippines, to
furnish the Oregonians with dates on
which steamers carrying mail for Manila
will sail, and tbe hour and date on
which mails will close at the' postoffice
here, in order to catch such steamers,
the following in renard to this matter
was furnished by Chief ClerkCotterman,
of the railway mail service: A steamer
will leave Vancouver, B. C, carrving
mail for Manila, January 2d. Mails to
go by her will leave here at 10 :10 p. m.,
December 29th. Tbe next steamer to
carry Manila mail will leave San Fran
cisco January 7th, mail to connect with
which will leave here on January 5th,
at 6 p.m. Oregonian.
Let It Be m
To most of us It eeems but yesterday
since we were celebrating the glorious
Chrismas tide, and yet 'tis but the night
before Christmas and tomorrow we
again enjoy its cheer, for it should be
the happiest day of all tbe year.
If to some it seems a burden it is be
cause they themselves have made it so,
and instead of making it a time for gifts
of love, they have changed it into a day
for the display of costly presents, and
therefore for weeks previous to its arri
val rack their brains in tbe endeavor to
find something which will be expensive
enough to offer as a Christmas gift, for
getting that the smallest remembrance
is fully as adequate to express tbe love
which prompts the giver. The same
spirit is displayed in remembering the
little ones on this occasion, until they
are so loaded down with toys, etc., that
the real pleasure is lost.
Were the articles less plentiful the en
joyment of those received would be the
more noticeable. Even the little ones
appreciate the fact that it is more bless
ed to give than to receive, and they are
never too young to be taught taught
this truth, which it is to be hoped that
the older children have so thoroughly
learned that not a needy one in our city
will be overlooked tomorrow, and there
fore all will have a merry Christmas.

Kindergartners Ed Joy Themselves,
No company of children in the city
understands tbe art of enjoying them
selves better than those of the Kin
dergarten school, this Christmas
their teacher, Miss Taylor, secured a
tree for them and left its arrangement
to the Kindergartners, who fixed it up
to suit themselves and placed thereon
gifts for mamma and papa, which they
had "made. Yesterday afternoon the
children and parents gathered at their
school room in the Baptist church, and
after Kindergarten exercises by the
pupils and singing by Mrs. Woodworth,
the little presents were distributed.
Then to the surprise of the children a
tree was displayed, which the teacher
had arranged for them, and each little
one received a book from ber, and a bag
of candy and nutB, and Miss Taylor ex
plained ' to them that Mr. J. C. Hos
tetler was the Santa Clans, who had
brought the latter to them. Tbe idea
of Santa Clans is not overthrown, but
they are taught that they too may be a
little Santa Claus, which helps them to
be generous and loving.
