The impressive ceremonies of Christmas
mass was performed at the Catholic church
last Tuesday evening.' The attendance was
large, and the impressiveness of the solemn
rites commemorative of the birth of our
Savior was felt by all present.
The property owners should clean side
walks of snow and thus deprive the hood
lum elemeut of converting the common
thoroughfares of the city into slippery and
treacherous paths, which make pedestrians
constantly vigilant, and frequently cause
bruises and other iujuries.
The toboggan is a general place of resort
these evenings. 1 esterday it was generally
patronized, and the people enjoyed it com
pletely. It is royal fun, and exhilarates,
recuperates, resuscitates and rejuvenates
the dormant energy and activity of the phy
sique of those who follow sedentary employ
ments and lack exercise.
Christmas day was a happy, peaceful oo
casion in The Dalles. Very many families
met around the social board, and enjoyed
themselves in a general family rtuoion.
The small boy coasted down the streets and
sidewalks, the toboggan slide was gener
ously patronized, aud a few of our citizens
indulged in the stimulating beverage.

A paragraph is going the rounds about a
girl dying from tight lacing. One bold
newspaper man commenting on the fact
says: "These corsets ought to be done
away with, and if tbe girls can't live with
out being squeezed we suppose men could
be found who would sacrifice themselves.
As old as we are we'd rather devote three
hours a day without a farthing of pay, as a

home he dropped his rifle, which in falling
was discharged, the bullet taking fleet in
one of his arms, shattering the bones. The
man had a long tramp over the mountains

Baker Democrat: Last Thursday on bis

the Homestake mine and Burnt nver, C.
W. Durkee was caught in a snow slide and
covered up to a depth of over ten fet and
only for the assistance rendered by his part

remained under the snow in a standing posi
tion upwards of three-quarters of an hour,
and totally unable to move hand or foot to
free himself from his perilous position and
all the time lully conscious ot the danger
that surrounded him. He says he does not
believe he could have survived the ordeal
much longer and when bis friend uncovered
the snow from his head it was the happiest
moment ot his me.

A party of little girls, in the spirit of
true benevolence, saved their money for
some weeks past, and on Christmas day
spent their accumulation for the benefit of
the poor of tbe city. On that morning they
loaded sleds and hauled their good thing
to tbe needy, in the true spirit ot charity,
these little Good Samaritans did not want
their names published, but they are known

ihe editor ot tbe Wasco Observer is
growling because only seven marriage
licenses have been issued since the organi
zation of the county. The census bas not
been increased sufficiently to satisfy tbe
towering ambition of this scribe, and he has
entered the missionary field. Tbe poor
fellow must recollect that license has to
issue from the clerk of the county in which
tbe lady resides, and as old Wasco has the
prettiest girls in the northwest tbe young
men ot Sherman county have unusual at
tractions to cross the Deschutes for a bride
The matter is easily explained.
A new band has been organized in the
city, and tbe members arc not supplied with
nickel-plated instruments, but with some
that answer the purpose equally as well.
The members are Masters Carl and Rob
Williams, Walter and Paul French, Elmer
and Rex Ward, Jack Newman, Clinton
Millsaps and Herman Nicholas. The leader
is Carl Williams, and his parting injunction
to his subordinates was: "Now boys, be
sure and practice for a half hour on Chippy,
Get Your Hair Cut Just Like Mine.' " The
boys no doubt will follow the instruction",
and the next time they appear on the street
will render this piece of classical music in
excellent time and tune.
Dallas Observer: We are having a little
winter at present. Saturday and Sunday
there was a combination of snow and rain
and the snow prevailed, about an inch ot
the "congealed" remaining on the ground.
Then it cleared off and Monday was a beau
tiful day, being just cold enough to till peo
ple with life and keep tbe snow from melt
ing. Tuesday morning it began snowing
again and bas kept up its lick: pretty well,
promising to give sleighing for Christmas.
There has undoubtedly been a heavy fall of
snow in the mountains and this ought to
till our mill mec with rapture, as it insures
sufficient water to successfully run their
lots. People generally have plenty to eat
and wear and fuel to keep them warm; so

in lboU Capt. John M. Jusrden was in
command of a company of volunteers, then
stationed near the Warm Springs reserya
tion. The Snake Indians at that time
were very troublesome, and frequently the
stage running into the towns in this region
brought news of terrible massacres of miners
and travelers. It was about this time that
James Clark's house was attacked by In
dians, and taking bis wife and babies with
him, bid in the willows. From his hiding
place he saw the flames destroying the ac
cumulation of a number of years houses,
barns, haystacks, and fences. Soon after
this, the old pioneer, Howard Maupin and
his son, Perry, followed the trail of Paulina,
the war chief of the Snakes, and after camp
ing several days on the path of the Snake
chief, got a sight of him and shot him dead.
This ended tbe Indian troubles in going to
Canyon City, and after Paulina was killed
there was no further danger from the abor
igines. Ihe place where James Clark: and
family escaped irom the snakes is known
to day as "Burnt Ranch." In talking oyer
.these incidents with Capt. Alarden he told
Times Mountaineer reporter something
which happened in lbbl). Uti the 4th ol
July of that year the volunteers deter
mined to give the regulars a salute on that
day. In going to tbe Warm Springs reir-
vation the volunteers had to cross tbe chit-
ike creik on a log. When dpt. Marden
got his command on the tree across tbe
stream, he nave the orders "about face,
At this tbe soldiers turned around on the
log, Dan Butler among the rest. After
this order was obeyed tbe order was given
make ready, take aim and tire." After
the discharge, the reverbation of the guns
threw many of the soldiers into the stream,
which was then waist high. Hon. D. W.
Butler fell iuto a hole, into which his bead
was only above tbe water. Looking at
Capt. Marden, in his anper he exclaimed.
U d d n yon, I will kill you when 1
get out of here. J. After everything was
over Capt. Warden treated the boys to a
drink, but tbey all said this was the worst
practical joke ever played on them, it was
enly last week that Hon. D. W. Butler
called Capt. Marden'a attention to the fact
and said he would never forget it. There
was 'no hard feelings afterwards betweeu
the captain and his command, and fre
quently now when they meet they talk over

Messrs. L. Davis and George Carpenter,
of Veimont, are in tbs city with the pur
pose of investigating the resources of The

Among the mauy attractive features of
the charity fair, held last week at the new
armory, is the art gallery. Not only is this
rich in paintings in oil and water colors
and etchings from far-famed artists, and
also those of local fame, but there are many
antiquities and curios that are well worthy
of especial mention. Among the old books
we noticed a bible printed tu lot 7, in old
lerman, and now the property of Mr. Bonn
of this city. This book was printed eighty-
ve years after the discovery of printing by
Uuttenberg and raust, and as the nrst m
pressions from movable types were made on
laying cards, this may be considered in tbe
st of tbe earliest specimens of the art
mongthe Indo-Gcrmaoic races. The
printing is clear and distinct, aud the exe
cution of the work is very excellent. A
totem block of a chief of one of the Alaskan
tribes, in block elate-rock, is a beautiful
rel'c. It is carved in fair representations of
animals, and, considering the rude imple
ments with which tbe aborigines performed
the work, is truly wonderful. Two speci
mens of tapestry work aud painting at
tracted our attention, and are almost a
itudy of a lost art. These b ljne to Mr.
George P. Morgan, and be informs us they
date back to 1817. A single mention of the
paintings of merit, curios, specimens of
natural nistory, etc., in which all students
are interested, would transcend the limits
of a single article, and we can only say that
anyone interested in art or antiquity can
spend a profitable hour at the art gallery of
tbe charity fair.
Strayed From Home.
Saturday morning Mrs. C. C. Ireton, of
Squaw Creek, in Boise county, while suffer
ing from an attack of brain fever, left her
room, only partially diessed, and wandered
away from her home. Her husband, who
is a brother of Mr. John Ireton, of that
neighborhood, was just getting ready to
take his wife to Caldwell, Mrs. Ireton,
feeling quite unwell, said ube would lie
down for awhile, and Mr. Ireton left her in
her room, telling her he would be back in a
few mirutes. As the lady had, while suf
fering from similar attacks, left the house
and wandered about tbe premises on sev
eral former occasions, ber husband took the
precaution on leaving her to gently close
and fasten the door. He was gone only a
short time, and upon his return to the
house, he found that his wife had left by
passing through a window. A search for
bT was immediately instituted and kept
up during the day, but at a late hour, Sat

found. Tbe event caused much excitement
in the neighboruood, anil doubtless the

Tbe ladies of tbe M. E. church have in
course of .reparation an eutertainment to
be given on New Year's night for tbe bei e

titled "Golden Hair and The Three Bears."
The author is J. Astor Broad, of New York,
the same gentleman who wrote that other
charming musical bijou, "Red Riding
Hord." The last is already familiar to our
public and we believe that ' Golden Hair"
will be a greater favorite. Few men are
dying with desire and anxiety to tackle one
bear. Be on hand at tbe old armory hall
on the evening of the 1st, and you will see
how easily our fair friends can handle three

We copy the following from the W. W.

The telegraphic correspondent ot the Or-
eoonian sent the tollowmg irom Walla
H alia, under date or Dec. -Zid:
There is a big sensation brewing in alia
alia, and one that may result in tbe
shooting of one or more -before it is over.
It was openly charged on tbe streets to-day
that a promineut business man iuveigled a
well-known young lady into his room a day
or two ago, upon some plausible pretext and
wbeu she had entered, criminally assaulted
her. The young woman made a desperate
struggle to preserve ber honor, iu tbe
struggle her clothing was almost torn from
her body, and ber body severely injured.
Only a timely outcry prevented her aosail-
aut from accomplishing his purpose, as she
was nearly exhausted. By some inexplica
ble means not explained, she effected her
escape. Those are the details, so far as the
Oregonian correspondent was able to obtain
"The story has become public property,
however, and it will be impossible to keep
the identity ot the parties quiet much
longer. The name of tbe business man and
young lady are very well aud popularly
known. Their names will be suppressed
until more definite action is taken.
- "It is reported on the streets to-night
that the father of tbe young lady, one of
Walla W alla's most prominent men, has or
dered her assailant to leave the city, or
take the consequences, which are only pre
vented from immediate execution because
of the precarious health of the girl's
In this connection it is well to mention
that at a recent meeting of the directors of
the agricultural society a proposal to donate
to the "prominent business man' paid up
shares of stock in the society, as a sort of
testimonial of their appreciation of his
labors in its behalf at tbe recent fair, was
voted down after one ot tbe directors had
made a partial expose of bis record.

"A Social Session."
The performance of a "Social Session"
given at the old Armory Saturday night
was excellent iu every particular. The
music was the best ever listened to by a
Dalles audience, and the band well merit
the high reputation tbey eDj'oy through the
country. The cornet soloist and xyrophone
and sleigh-bell player were especial favor
ites, and were loudly and repeatedly en- ,
cored. These are undoubtedly masters of
the art of harmony, and would entertairf
and please the public in the great musical
centers of the world. Every one who ap
peared before tbe footlights was well adapt
ed to the part, and we nave rarely wit
nessed such excellent delineation of charae-
ter. YY e are sorry that as meagre audience
greeted this performance, and believe that
if they had another night in Tiie Dalles no
hall would contain the crowd which would
throng the house. If any one desires to
spend an agreeable evening ot mirth, wit
and humor he cannot do better than attend
the rendition of a VSocial Session", and
listen to the music discoursed by the excel
lent Black Hussar band.

Perished In the Snow. "
From Capt. Craig, of Eagle Valley, who
arrived in tlic city yesterday, the reporter
learned that Thos. Arthur, of Brownlee's
Ferry, Idaho, is eopposed to have perished
in the snow. In company with several
other men he left home last Monday on
snow shoes to look after some horses that
were snowed in np in the mountains. All
the members of the party returned in the
evening except Mr. Arthur, who they
thought would return later on, but when
morning came were surprised to find that
he bad not put in an appearance. They be
came very much alarmed at his continued
absence and at once organized a party to
search for him. Up to the present time
their endeavors have been in vain and all
hope of friends finding him alive is given
up. It is supposed that the unfortunate
man fell over a precipice and was killed or
else became exhausted from bunuer and
fatigue and perished in the snow.
