Furl the flag!
Hide In its folds a people's sorrow,
The tear of t dav and the throb of the morrow;
Choke the cheers in the throats of men;
Muffle the roll of the dram again
Furl the Flag!
Furl the flag!
Fill the stars In its heaven with children's civ,
Ighc Hi stripes with the flame of a suu-crowned
And cover it o'er with laurel wreath,
The tribute of truth to heroes' death
Furl the flag.
Furl the flag!
Hearts loyal are chilled in the doom of death,
They sleep with the croon of the ocean's breath,
In an alien land, on an alien strand,
Witu their fate in the clasp of God's right hand
Furl tae ag.

Daspite Pujs 28 mark prediction,
the river here stood persistently at the
27 notch all day yesterday and today,
with a fall of .5 at Lewiston ; a rise of 2 2
at Wenatchee; rise of 2 feet at North

will remain almost stationary.
Mr. H. C. Rooper informs us that the
results of the borse ride last week were
quite a surprise to . everyone. The re
port had gone out that a large number
of horses on the range, had died during

The Astorians trained somewhat on

noon and winning two out of the four
games played, our team beating them by

rolled against Messrs. DeHuff, Nolan,
Stadelman and Kurtz, beating them
three games and coming out fifty pins
ahead. Their visit was a pleasant one
for all concerned.

very pleasant surprise was given
upt. Gavin Saturday afternoon when
he was met at tbo High school by the
pupils and teachers of that department
and presented with a fine oak writing
desk as a token of their regard and their
appreciation of his efforts, as well as ex.
pressing their sincere regret that this
was to be his last year with them . The
presentation speech was made by

A quiet home wedding occurred at the
home of W. D. Richards in Fairfield dis
trict, about eight miles from . the city,
yesterday morning, when Miss Lizzie
Richards was united in,, marriage with
John M. Mann, Rev. Smith performing
the ceremony.". Miss Richards is a young
woman of exceptionally fine character
and is generally liked by all who meet
while the groom is a man of good
nciples and steady, habits. Mr. and
Mrs, Mann left for Hood River this
morning where they will remain for a
few weeks and returning will make their
home on bis ranch near Fairfield.
The members of Ja-res W. Nesmith
Post, G. A. R., Sons of Veterans and
Woman's Relief Corps attended the
Episcopal church last night in a body
for the purpose of listening to a memo
rial sermon delivered by Rev. De Forest,
who took as his text the words of St.
Faul, "I have fought a good fight."
Taking tbe stand that the wars in which
our brave soldiers have fought were just,
and could not have been honorably
averted, he enlarged on their results
and the good which has come out of
them, drawing from his text many les
sons for all, and especially encouragine
to the heroes who listened to him. The
music of the evening was especially
good and the numbers well suited to the
Often are we led to ask, "Are Dalles
people unappreciative; do they lack en
thusiasm, or what is tbe occasion for
such coldness as is displayed at nearly
every entertainment given in the city?",
when but one or two in the audience are
heard to give applause, no matter how
deserving the performance. Saturday
night at the graduating exercises of the
high school thoughts were expressed
where applause would have seemed , to
be out of place and leesen their effect;
tut patriotic Bentiments were given
from the stage which in many places
would have lifted the audience from its
feet and caused, deafening applause.
Are we asleep, or is our appreciation too
deep to admit of demonstration ?
About 123 Dalles people boarded tbe
Regulator yesterday morning bound for
the ball ground at Hood River to wit
ness a ball game - between the Hood
River and Dalles nines. However, for a
time, tbe exenrsionists thonght their
anticipations were to be dashed to
pieces by the waves of the Columbia,
for having in tow a Darge full of sheep
and other circumstances combining to
retard their progress, the steamer, found
itself stuck on the sand just below the
Umatilla House.' Finally calling tbe
ferry boat to its aid she was soon on her
way down the river. Landing at Hood
River at 10 :30, they were met by a
committee which took them in hand and
made tbe hours very pleasant until din
ner time when they were served with
a spread at tbe Mt. Hood hotel.. A hack
then conveyed the nine to the eround
and at 1:30 the game began, and it was
a lively one. But Hood River came out
ahead, the score being 13 to 9. At 5
o'clock the steamer left Hood River,
reaching here about 3:30. Our boys are
loud in their praises of the treatment rer
ceived at the hands of the Hood River

GRADUATES OF '99
Fifteen nigh School Pupils Receive Their
Ulplumas Some Splendid Exer
An exercise which always elicits wide
spread interest is that of commencement
day, when the school work is ended, and
at the commencement of real earnest
life work, tbe graduates tell us of their
aspirations and hopes for the future,
while teachers, schoolmatep, relatives
and friends join with them in celebrat
ing the momentous occasion which
marks tbe closing of school labors and
the opening of wider responsibilties.
The stage at the Vogt presented an at
tractive appearance Saturday night. It
had been decorated with palms and
flowers and appropriately draped in our
national colors, than which nothing
could be more filling for such an oc
casion. To add tbe finishing touches,
during a selection by the Commercial
band, eleven "sweet girl graduates" and
fonr of the noblest boys of our city, took
their places thereon, the class personal
being Martha K. Baldwin, Harriet N.
Cram, Harry E. Curtis, Nettie M. Fred
den,' Grace I. Hobson,' Hester Kent,
Lena C. M. L'.ebo, Ivan E. O.ikes, Clyde
W. Riddell, George II. Rucb, Martha A.
Schooling, Lena L. Thompson, Ena E.
Uren, Martha C. Whealdon, Grace N.
Willerton. . .
The exercises opened with two splen
did selections by the band, and inter
spersed with the essays were the follow
ing musical numbers, perhaps the most
classic as a whole yet given in the city :
A piano overture by Misses Julia and
Clara Nickelsen ; vocal solo, "The Angels
Serenade," with piano and violin ac
companiment. by MiES Myrtle Michell ;
violin and piano duet by Clarence and
Maude Gilbert ; qnartet, "Juanita" by
Messrs. Landers, Northup, Poling and
As the exercises progressed, many
were heard to remark that never had
they listened to graduating essays which
displayed more deep thought or ad
vanced better ideas than those read on
this occasion, some thoughts being truly
wonderful coming from students of their
yefrs. Tn Chronicle only regrets
that its pages are not many times their
size that it might reproduce them, for
they were productions of which any city
might justly feel proud, and, as a
minister was heard to remark yesterday
in the pulpit, it tueirpieceptsareneeaeu
in practical life will make an army of
young men and women whose influence
will be a power in a community.
Not alone were the essays good, but
their delivery was such as to give every
thoueht its proper weight and force and
prevent that annoyance when but half
the words are distinguishable.
Tbe subjects were chosen as follows :
"Gladstone" by Harry E. Curtis;
Build Thee More Stately Mansions,"
Nettie M. Fredden ; "English Poets of
the Nineteenth Century," Martha A.
Schooling; "Life is What We Make It,"
Lena L. Thompson ; "Tbe Influence of
True Ideals," . Martha K. Baldwin ;
"Creation's Crowning Jewel," Lena C.
M. Liebe; "The Advance of Govern
ment," Clyde W. Riddell ; "For Value
Received I Promise to Pay," Martha C.
Whealdon; "Shall They Who Wrong
Begin Yet Rightly End," Hester Kent;
'Leaves Yet Folded," Harriet N. Cram ;
"The Stars and Stripes," Graca I. Hob
son. As speaking was left optional with
the members of the class, the following
withdrew that more time might be given
to those who took part : Ivan E. Oakes,
whose subject was "Spirit of Party
PoliticsToday ;" George H. Rucb, "The
Age in Which We Live;" EnaE. Uren,
"The Value of Individuality ;" Grace N.
Willerton, "Earth's Battlefields."
At the close of the readings Supt.
John Gavin presented tbe well-earned
diplomas In a manner which plainly
showed bis interest in the graduates.
He impressed upon them the idea con
veyed in the word "commencement"
and urged them to go forward or the
inevitable result would be a backward
tendency ; there is no such thing as
standing still. He also assured them of
the good will which he and their former
teachers felt for them as they leave the
school room, and -of their interest in
their future welfare. Loud applause
was given as the diplomas were awarded
and the graduates received the reward
of years of hard study, for . one cannot

skimmed over their work ; but must be

sleep. She finally discovered a way to
recovery, by purchasing of us a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discoveiy for Consump
