The Christmas ball Monday night at Du

riasoo of the melting snow. They are not
good for sleighs, wagons or horses. Ttm

wind that have prevailed since.

' Bold Ofsttle Thief;
A cattle thief attempted a scheme at
Umatilla Saturday night that for boldne&s
and daring bas not its equal in the country.
He came there riding into town just before
sundown and tied nis horse in front of the
hotel. He disappeared soon afterward and
returned in about an hour, visited all tbe
hotels and boarding houses and engaged to
furnish them dressed beef,- A. R. Jack, tbe
innkeeper, missed his fat mileh oow about
milking time; and when bis hired man was
out looking for her he beard tbe bellowing
of a cow as he passed by a vacant house.
Going inside he found the cow imprisoned.
He also found butchering tool inside, show
vaz that the oow was soon to be bntchered.
The cattle thief evidently got wind of the
discovery, as he was seen to ride away soon
afterward. He is described as a young
man. 30 years of age, Bmall red mustache.
and wore a broad brimmed hat. He also
had several six shooters stowed away iu his
belt.- He is thongbt to be a member of a
gang of cattle thieves wbo have been operat
ing in that vicinity for some time past.

Items Prom Sherman County.
Mono, Dec. 21, 1892.
The people ol Sherman county are glad
to sue the TrMK9-MotJNTAINKKB so out
spoken in favor of a portage railroad
from The Dalles to Cehlo. No doubt
Senator omith will use his utmost en
deavors to secure an appropriation for
this purpose; but as the legislature will
be lamely Republican many have feared
that the valley Republicans would be in
clined to look upon his ardor as so much
political caDital. Of course, we would
all be gl id to see a railroad on the Wash
ington side: but. by all means, let the
siate of Oregon build a portage road on
the Oregon side It may never be used,

Sunday night a light snow tell about
one melt deep This morning the ther
mometer registered ten degrees below
All bone for a hard winter, without
which the people will again be subjected
to the . humiliation of being delinquent
debtors. One real good crop like the
yield per acre of '81 would set the farm
ers of Sherman county upon their feet.
Al' over the county the schools are do
ing gond work and especially is this true
of the schools at Wasco, Moro, Grass Val
ley and Hwmony.
There is bat little sickness in the coun
ty considering tbe population. We now
have two doctors and each of them can
sit by 'he stove more than half the time.
Moro people will have a Christmas
Grass Valley has a comedy club di
rected by Prof. Clark Brown, their wide
awake school master.
The Music Teachers' Association of I
Sherman county will meet at Moro on
the 37th inst. A good piogrammc has
been arranged and will no doubt be well
rendered. It would be a pleasure to see
some of the musical people of The Oalles
there on that occasion. 1. U. JN.
A Perilous Tramp.
'The r-.'cent storm came ao suddenly that
few were prepared for its violence, and
ihfi o who were distant Jrom settlements
'an d bailly. Mr. Ernest Haase, a German,
who wjs camped on the Klickitat river, at
u 'lat supposed to be a coal mine, was one
of these and he had a terrible experience in
traveling to this city, which was about thir
teen miles distant. Some time ago he met
with an accident by which he lo3t his right
leg, and has walked around ever since on a
wooden peg. Io this manner he has man'
sged to follow his usual vocation, and bas
become quite handy at work. The snow
was three or four feet deep around his cabin,
and the prospects being that it- would be
still deeper be thought it would be better
for h m to reach the haunts of civilization.
Starting out early inhe morning.he flound
ered through five miles of snow three or
four feet deep, using the stump of his right
limit to clear a pathway, when he would
bobble forward. After resting at a neigh
bor's over night, he again bejan his tramp,
and .arrived at tbe ferry landing, opposite
this city, late at night. The next morning
ne touua that bis journey bad been more
hurtful than he anticipated, for tbe stump
of bis leg had become frost-bitten during
the trip in its contact , with the-snow and
had turned to a dark color. It pained bim
very much, but this did not deter him from
walking around the city. Mr. Haase is a
man of an' iron constitution, and is gifted
with that unconquerable will power which
distinguishes bis countrymen. Tlnre are
few men under the circumstances wbo
would have undertaken the i erilQns jour
ney, with three teet of snow on a level acd
drifted in places to twise that depth. That
he made it successfully is due to his endur
ance and determined will power. ,
We have received folder from Chicaio,
the title page of which says: "Selections
from Ves Dreams,' by Tennyson. Do You
Recognize the Word-Painting?" After quot
ing from the poem the part where the city
clerk is duped into investing in a Peruvian
mine, whioh only existed on paper, and
tbe pleadings of the wife for forgiveness for
tbe man, the following is given:
"No trifle," groan'd the husband; "yesterday
I met bim suddenly in the street, and ssk'd
That which I aslc'd the woman In my dream.
Like her, be shook his head. 'Show me the books!
He dodged me with a Ions; and loose account.
'The books, the Docks? but he, he e uld not wait.
Bound on a matter of lite and death;
When tne great booka see Daniel seven and ten)
Were open'd, I should find he meant me well;
And then began to bloat himself, and ooze .
all over with the fat affectionate smile
That nukes tbe widow ean. -My deaiest friend,
Bare faith, have filth! We live by faith,' said be;
'And all things work tueether for the good
Of these' it makes me sick co quote him last
Gript my hand hard, and with God-bless-you went
I at od 1 ke one that bad received a blow:
I found a bard friend in his loose accounts,
A loose ne in the hard grip of bis band,
A corse in his Ood-bteas-you: then my eyes
Pur-ued hi m down the street, and far away.
Among the honest shoulders of the crowd,
Bead rascal in the morions of bis back
And scoundrel in the supple sliding knee."
- , a
And he meant, he said be meant,
Perhaps he meant, or partly meant, you well."
The text is followed closely; but foot
notes are given at the reference to the Peru
vian mine and other matters, which gives
the poem a local application.
Portland Dispatch: The convict labor
question will have to be decided by . the
next legislature. There are many employ
meats to- wnich these men could be pat and
not interfere with honest free labor, and
one of the best suggestions we have seen is
to pat them oat to make good . reads. Bat
there is another important enterprise which
should be undertaken by the legislature,
and that is, the building of the portage road
tram Celilo to The Dalles. The labor ot
these convicts could be utilized in building
this road, and the state would only be out
the material. This road ia a state necessity,
and the people of that section cannot delay
the matter until the alow process of con
gressional appiopriatiODs will give them re
lief. They have prayed for deliverance long
enough, and thev will expect the next legis
lature to put some tangible project ia oper
ation by . which tbey may secure an open
iiver. Tbe state can tarnish the labor, and
it will be but a small expense for the roll
ing stock and other material.
An Indian boy from the Warm Springs
reservation broke into the store pf The
Dalles Mercantile . Co. last night. - He"
watched his opportunity and effected an en
trance through one of the large, panes of
glass in the fropt door. When Mr. Bills,
the night watchman, made his rounds, he
saw the eleotrio light turned down aud the
glass broken. .. Immediately surmising that
some one bad burglarized the store he se
cured the services of Mr. Oibons, awoke
Mr. .Williams and proceeded through the
store. Uo looking in tne back room be
found the boy . hidden in i' pile of grain-
sacks and ascertained? that he had purloined
a pocketkoife and some candy. The boy
who was not more than sixteen years of
