Mrs. James Blakeney, who bas been
with ber husband at the hospital in
Portland, returned home last night. She
reports him as getting along, slowly, as
could only be expected after undergoing
such an operation. It will be six weeks
and perhaps longer, before he will be
able to leave the hospital, and it is
feared the leg will be eouiewbat shorter
than it formerly was. Mrs. Blakeney

One of the enjoyable events of Christ
mas day in The Dalles to a few of the
friends of Mr. and Mrs. J. S.- Fish and
Roger B. Sinnott was the dinner served
that evening at the Umatilla House.
About 7 :30 o'clock the merry party were
seated at a table in the pleasantest part
of the dining room, where one of the
best of dinners was served, while all
joined in lively conversation, such aa an
occasion of that sort always engenders,
especially where the hosts and hostess
are of such happy dispositions. Having
done justice to the spread, the party ad
journed to the parlor,- where an hour or
more was spent in singing. Altogether
the evening was a very pleasant one.
As far as can be learned the changes
which are to take place in the railroad
time card on January 1st, will make
little difference in the .trains through
The Dalles, except in the arrival of No. 1,
which now is due here at 3:20 a. m.
This train will reach hereabout 1 or 1 :30
p. m., which will be a much more desir
able hour for passengers for Portland,
and will, if on time, admit of three
hours' stay in the metropolis before the
night train leaves that city, thus giving
that much time in which to transact
business and only cause a loss of half a
day. Besides, if reports are true con
cerning the changes, we will have a

William Martin Johnson, author of
"Inside of a Hundred Homes," con
tributes the first artie of his new eerles
on "The House Practical" to the Janu
ary Ladies' Home Journal. In these
articles Mr. JohnBon will explain how
the various rooms, hallways, etc., of a
honse may be artietically furnished and
decorated at comparatively small cost.
The explanation is so clearly detailed
that, with the aid of the accompanying
drawings, almost any one with taste
may follow the instructions given. The
articles will show how the' interior of a
house may be transformed from . the
commonplace into a thing of artistic
beauty and cozincss. There is no sub
ject of such vital interest to Americans
as the improvement of the home, and
Mr. Johnson's articles will doubtless
prove as popular and useful as his " Ju-r

BOY KILLED AT WESTON.
Edwin Biker Accidentally Shot By a
A most deplorable accident occurred at
Weston Saturday evening, resulting in
the death of Edwin Baker, son of M. A
Baker, the postmaster at that place.
Sometime ago, the oldest Marsh boy
bad loaded an old cap and ball Colt's
pistol, which was left about the house,
The younger Marsh boy, 12 years old,
was forbidden to take it. His mother
had on Saturday afternoon gone to visit
at Mrs. Beeler's house and while she was
absent, the 12-year-old Marsh boy took
it out and was playing at a Wild West
show with ' the Baker boy, Edwin.
Marsh was sitting on a hummock of dirt
near the house, trying to take the cap
off the prime holes of the pistol, when
the Baker boy came running out from
the woodshed toward ' him. ' In some
manner the pistol was discharged, one
report saying it was merely by reason of
the hammer falling accidentally,' and
another report saying the Marsh boy
playfully pointed the pistol toward the
Baker boy and snapped it in fun.
At any rate, the Baker boy fell in
stantly, and apparently died the instant
the bullet struck him. The bullet
passed through the heart.
Of course, the parents of the Baker
boy were prostrated with grief over the
awful tragedy, and the parents of the
Marsh boy are, perhaps, equally grief
stricken. It was purely an accident,
and yet the results are fully as deplor
able aa though it had been otherwise.
The body ot the little Baker boy was
buried Sunday at Weston. E. O.
'Ruth Aabmore" Dead.
Dispatches tell us that Mrs Isabel
Mallon, who wrote under the nom de
plumes of "Ruth Ash more" and "Bab",
died at her home in New York yester
day. For several years readers of the Ladies'
Home Journal have been wont to read
Ruth Ashmore's articles in that popular
magazine; particularly her "Side Talks
With Girls," which were at times very
amusing to many who are not accus
tomed to living up to the very letter of
"800" society ettiqnette. Therefore when
she informed us that a young lady might
with propriety take a short drive with
ber affianced husband unaccompanied
by a chaperone, we smiled at the
thought of such leniency; and later,
when to their dismay the society young
men read in her columns that they were
expected to pay the street car fare when
escorting a young lady to a place of
amnsement, the laugh was on the other
side: However, in spite of the fact that
we derived much amusement from her
writings, we more often appreciated the
common sense contained in the pages
devoted to articles on practical subjects,'
and will miss them as we look for them
in their accustomed place. Already
have they been missed, and those who
