exceptions to the rule we will gladly
make the correction Thursday. How
ever, we cannot refrain from expressing
the wish that this rule will be followed

"Coon Hollow" at the Vogt last night
was all right, the more so from the fact
that the company carried some very fine
scenery of their own. making a variation
from that which we are accustomed to
see. While the plot of the play was
almost too sensational for the general
run of theater-goers, there were many
features of its production very meritori
ous and deserving of mention. The
dancing was unusually good and the
quartet singing seemed to take the audi
ence, while the actinic of the little
mountain girl was highly appreciated,

There was a tempest in a teapot at the
postoffice this morning and many of our
citizens were on the verge of bovcot-
ting the postofflac eiidfgeUingJtheir mail
at Grand Dalles. At any rate there was
quite a vicious "boxing" match going
on for a time, as one by one our people
went to get their mail and found it was
moving day. But the postmaster and
clerks came out on top and the "band
played on." The whole trouble arose
from the fact that the department re
quires al second class offices to use
factory boxes and keys, and in time all
old boxes will be discontinued. In place
of the ha!! section just changed it is the
intention to put iu double boxes for the
use of business firms, and the lettered
boxes now in use will be continued, a
row of boxes like those on the opposite
side of tlie office being placed under
neath the new section. The new boxes
may not appear to be as desirable at a
glance, but when the advantage in locks
is considered, our people will be glad the
change is made, and spare the post
master's life at least.
Portland is "crowing" over the state
poultry show, where 1000 of the best
birds in the Northwest arc on exhibition.
The number of Oregon hens has in
creased five fold in the past five years
and should increase many times that
number in the next five years. Dalles
people are just wishing some one had
planted a few turkeys, so that we'd have
had a better crop these holidays. Our
local dealers are unable to meet one-half
the demand, and sent orders to Southern
Oregon and other points, thus making
the price as high as 22 cents a pound,
the cheapest being 17 ami 18 cents. The
scarcity arose mostly from the fact that
our dealers contracted to ship too many
to other markets. However, it should
be a lesson to oar people to raise larger
numbers of this salable bird.

Putnam F. Bradford died at H.Kd
River last nurht at 7 o'clock. He was
between i-ixty-five and seventy years of
aire and his life was. like that of many
others of the early days, a busy wad ad
venturous one. In the early oov in
connection with his brothers, Daniel F.
and Ashe, he started a store at the Cas
cades under the firm name of Bradford
& Co. This company built and operated
the portage road ontbe Washington side
from the middle landing to a point above
the Cascade rapids. At the organization
of the old O. 8. N. Co., the predecessors
of the O. K. & N , they turned the port
aae road over to that company and re
ceived therefor cither one-fourth or one
fifth of the entire stock. Prospering as
the company gathered iu wealth, they
sold out in the fall of 1866 and locate. I In
New York, being associated iu busi
ness with the firm of Gould, Fiake &
Beldon, Jay QouJd and "Jim" Fiske.
After many years in New York Mr.
Bradford returned to Oregon and ma
his home at Hood Hiver, where a abort
time ago his wife, a most estimable
woman, passed away to the "beyond."
Ha was descended in a direct line
from Governor Bradford, the first gov
ernor of Massachusetts.
Mr. Bradford was well known to all
old-timers, and was one of Use most
hoaoitable of men. A clean great-heart
ed gentlemen whom it was a iileeenre to
meet, an honor to know.
