A young lady was riding down the

spirit towards the old maids, in assess
ing them 50 cents a bead, we gathered
from a conversation with one of the al
leged bachelors today that their reason
for eo doing was that the old maids, being
always instinctively attracted to any
assemblage of bachelors, would likely
occupy a large portion of the seating
capacity of the Christian church, there
fore the bachelors took the proper pre
cautions and made the above charge.
In mentioning the valuation of the
estate of Horace Knight, deceased, in
yesterday' issue of The Chronicle, we J
gave it ae fj80,000. It is generally sup
posed that newspapers are allowed a
certain margin for exaggeration ; but
there ia a place where exaggeration
ceases 'and "preverication" ' begins.
While The Chronicle did not intention
ally misquote the figures, we were mis
informed to such an extent that were
our readers mentioned in the will they
would certainly receive a great disap
pointment, as tbe estate is valued at
$15,500, about a fifth as much as we
And how the Commercial Club
comes to the front and is organizing a
band, to be called tbe D. C. & A. C.
Concert Band, under the dirtct super
vision of the club and composed of club
members. It will consist of eighteen
pieces, and two concerts a month will be
given at the club rooms; presumably on
the veranda during the summer months.
The work of setting the members
together is already pretty well along,
and whatever the club undertakes is
sure to be a go, so no doubt we will
eoou be indebted to the club for another
pleasure we would not otherwise have
enjoyed. It will riot only be beneficial
to the club, but to the city as well. It

Such la Said to Be the Disease era Young
Women at Colrille, Wash.
A brief dispatch from Colville pub
lished yesterday told of a remarkable
case of what appeared to be hydrophobia
at that place, the victim being Mies
Nettie Fogg. Tbe case as it now de
velops is one of the most peculiar that
ever occurred in the Northwest. Hys
terical imaginary hydrophobia is what
it might be termed, for . tbe young
woman was never, to tbe knowledge of
her relatives and friends, bitten by a
mad dog. -
Saturday ehe was thrown into a series
of convulsions that seemed as if it must
terminate fatally. She barked, gulped
food and lapped water like a dog, and
twisted and turned her body as a dog in
agony would. Suddenly ahe righted
herself and with a vicious snap eeized
one of her thumbs b 'tween her teeth
and would have bitten it off, but for in-terfert-nce.-
A few seconds after this
Nettie began to bark, growl and snap
just as a dog does when irritated. She
remained in that condition for about
five minutes when another spasm took
her and tbe nnited muscles of three
were required to hold her. In periods of
semi-consciousness she would point to a
scar on her breast and say "Garfield did
it." Ori inquiry, it was learned that
Garfield was a dog fur many years in
the Fogg family. One of the sisters
said. Nettie bad told her that the dog
had bitten her about nine years ago.
The dog at one time was suspected of
being mad, , but recovered from the
It is thought Nettie was bitten by the
dog and had been greatly frightened
thereby, thinking she might some time
contract - hydrophobia. Being of a
nervous temperament and recently in
poor health, the theory is she worked
uer6elf into a hysterical condition, when
ehe imagined she bad hydrophobia and
developed all the symptoms of that
malady, something not unusual in the
history of medicine.

Governor Geer says;
-x can t aee mat tne state nas any
right to ask the president to send the
volunteers home. They enlisted in tbe
setviceof the government, and if there
ever was a time when they have been
needed it is now. It seems to me that
it is a piece of impertinence to ask
that they be returned. I feel confident
that the president will order them home
as soon as possible, and until be does so
I cannot see what right the states have

Chaa. H. Gleim, traveling freight and
passenger agent of tbe Colorado Midland
Railway, is In The Dalles. The purpose
of hie visit to our citv is to intereet the
Elks in the matter of holding the grand
lodge meeting of 1900 in Colorado
Springs. Tbe national meeting ' this
year is to be held in St. Lonia in June,
and try instructing their delegates to
vote for Colorado Springs as tbe meet
ing place of tbe following year, the Elks
have no idea what a favor they will con
fer on those who are permitted to at
tend. To one who has been privileged
to visit that beautiful place, and take in
the grandeur of its surroundings Pike's
Peak, tbe Garden of tbe Gods, Cheyenne
-Canyon, and numerous other places fully
as wonderful, the very idea of such an
opportunity is enough to create any
amount of enthusiasm and cause one to
wish be might be a delegate.'
A trip over the road which Mr. Gleim
has the honor of representing is enough
to induce all to vote for Colorado
Springe. No route could be chosen
-which would give delegates a better op
portunity to eee scenery which must of
necessity be remembered for a life time,
as every newspaper representative who
had -the privilege of traveling over that
route last year will affirm.
A me winter nas proven an excep
tionally hard one on the railroads
of Colorado, on this road in particular,
which for seventy-seven days was tied
np with a blockade of snow which sur
passed any previous blockade in its
history. One ean scarcely believe the
weather bureau contains facts when it
gives tbe fall of enow during the winter
along that road at 3l feet ; but such
were tbe reports.
Mr. Gleim will visit various lodges
throughout Oregon and as far as San
Francieco, in the interest of Colorado
Springs for a meeting place in' 1900.
