The storm of Tuesday at Seaside is de
scribed as something sublimeand at the
same time terrifying. The surf beat
clear up to the portico in front of the

Grimes states that iret all his experience

Last night was said to be the coldest
of the year, tbe thermometer loafing
around below zero one degree down in
the city, but, according to one thermom

are today skating on the Bloughs and
ponds. We are not tbe only ones who
are suffering with tbe cold ; Portland
and the Valley towns are even worse off,
although they claim it is much colder in
Those who so enjoyed McEwen's en
tertainments last year, are anxious to
see him again, and from those who have
attended then: in the Valley we learn
that they are doubly interesting.- This
year he has with him Miss Grace May
nard, who is the subject in one of tbe
greatest cataleptic scenes ever performed
on the stage. Then he introduces a
number of musical specialties and baton
swinging in the class. He may. put his
subjects to'sleep, but his' audiences are
always wide awake and Sometimes con
vulsed with laughter.
The Dalles reporter for the Oregonian
must have been unusually cold when he
sent his report Wednesday; perhaps bis
best girl had given him the "cold frost,"
the "icy mit," or the "marble heart."
Be that as it may, our residents -were
amazed to see by the paper that the
thermometer stood at 15 below zero on
that day in Tbe Dalles, when we had all
read the thermometer at 16 above. We
are inclined to believe the correspondent
was not. to blame, but, as usual the
"measly' compositor had a finger in the
pie. Compositors are used to making
pi, anyway, and can bear tbe blame.
Although it is not anticipated that the
river will again be blocked, there is just
a slight coating of ice visible this morn
ing. At the locks there is some ice, but
not sufficient to have caused any dif
ficulty to the Dalles City yesterday, had
not the' streams being frozen in tbe
mountains prevented the reservoir from
filling and so made the water very low.

Among the passengers from Salem to
Portland yesterday was Mrs. Abigal
Dunniway, who had a . flmiie on her
countenance which defied competition,
and said as plainly as words could tell,
" We've won the day." Her fellow pas
sengers declared that she was preparing
her ballot, as she scribbled a few lines.
Her-'our-minute speech Tuesday, night
did moch to impress the legislators with
the fact that women' can be brief when
there's anything to be gained by it.
Several of our legislators were heard to
remark, '.' While I'm not in favor of the
amendment, the best way to get around
it is to vote for it, for I'm willing to
trust it to the people." It might, how
ever, be a parallel case with that of the
young lady who married a man to get
rid of him.
A clipping appeared in The Chronicle
of Wednesday, stating that a Catholic
priest in Chicago had joined the Knights
of Pythias. In justice to the priest in
question. Rev. F. J. Walsh, we quote
the following from the St. Louis Review
of Jan. 12th : "The Buffalo Volkfreund
of the 6th inst. asserts that tbe report
that be joined or intended to join the
Knights of Pythias was denied by Rev.
F. J. Walsh of Chicago, immediately
upon its first appearance in tbe Chicago
papers, and was telegraphed over the
land by the Associated Press ; but that
few of the journals served by this agency
deigned to notice it, despite the fact
that they had conspicuously printed the
fake.- Such proceedings are charac
teristic of our yellow journals. There is
method in their madness." 1
. On tbe platform at ,. the Agricultural
College Wednesday, when the legislators
visited that institution, was Prof. Gatch,
who though eomewhat older in; appear
ance than when be was professor of the
academy at The Dalles, looked very
natural to many - of his former pupils
from various schools of the state, who
were present. Among the distinguished
visitors on the' platform were several
who had attended school when he taught
in the university at Salem, and while he
looked over them, as he did in former
days in the school room, many seemed
to be-wondering, as they did then, if he
really were looking at them, and if he
were going to ask them to speak. This
time they were safe, for while be might
have insisted on speeches in former days.

A case deserving of special attention
and the charity of the people was
brought before Judge Mays yesterday by
several citizens, under whoBe notice it
came. It is that of the Stiles family,
who for some time has resided in a
little house up in tbe pines. .The family
consists of a mother and four boys, the
father having been killed two years ago
while working on a threshing machine
at Henry Gilpin's place near this city.
Since then tbe mother has been endeav
oring to support tbem, but owing to a
lack of training herself, and what might
be termed incompetency to manage
tbem. haB made almost a dismal failure
Now the poor woman is ill and unablw

taken the matter in hand. The tvrj
younger boys are aged 6 and 11 years,
while tbe older ones are 13 and 16 years
old. With some training they ma? be
taught to be good, industrious boys
Accordingly, Superintendent Gardner,
of the Boys' and GirlB' Aid Society, was
telephoned for and will arrive tonight.
Tomorrow he will look into the case and
if he deem it best, take tbem to that
In the meantime a committee of
citizens haB " been busily engaged in

and has patronized Parkins' bath
rooms, the clothing stores, etc., so that
their former friends would hardly recog

v We have heard of the effects of a
rattlesnake bite, when the skin of the
person turns brown and epotted. Such
is tbe case of one of these boys, who was
some years ago bitten by a rattlesnake.
Mrs. Stiles has been made comfortable
