A good story has been allowed to He
around for a mooth without giving it to the
public, and the Pendleton Tribun considers
it to good to keep. It appears that a citi
rcn of Pendleton bad loaned $100 to hia
father, taking a note for the amount. The
father resided io New York state. The
aforesaid citizen sent the note back east to
attorneys, instructing them to sue bis father
and remit. Ia the meantime, the old gen
tleman died, leaving all his property to the
citi2en. The attorneys said nothing,' en
tered suit against tbe estate, ran np the
charges and took the costs out of tbe resi
due of tbe estate. Tbis amounted to the
citizen suing himself on a note due himself,
instructing the attorneys to enter suit
against himself, securing judgment against
himself for the debt and coats against him
self and paying to himself the whole
amount. If any one-can beat this record of
brilliant financial engineering, let him speak
or forever after hold his peace.

Norville and a stranger were standing in

polled out his watch to see- how long he
would have to wait tor the train. Mr. Nor
ville, observing the watch, exclaimed:
"That is my brother's watch. Where did
you get it?" The stranger replied: "That
may be your brother's watch. I got it from
tbe pocket of a Union soldier whose body I
helped to bury after one of the numerous
engagements in tbe civil war; over twenty
six years ago," Mr. Norville identified the
watch as the one his brother had worn
wben he feft home for the battlefield. The
stranger was requested' to bequeath tbe
watch to a member of the Norville family

The Grand Dallea Swindle.
The most gigantio swindle of tbe last
year now seems to be located at a fictitious
place represented aa the ''The Orand
Dalles," By the brilliant descriptions scat
tered throughout the east, it should be
called the "Grand Dazzle." What has
given the swindle some color of substance ia
that a minister of the gospel is acting as
beralder and trumpeter for the fakement.
It is stated that a great city on the Colum
bia river just north of The Dalles, had been
builded, and that the hum of machinery in
a score of factories disturbs the usually still
and quiet atmosphere which usually envel
ops the plateaux and barren mountains, by
day and by night; that the streets Were
graded and electric cars connected it witb
Oregon; that tbe place was brilliantly illu
minated with electrio lights and all the ap
purtenances of a metropolitan city were to
be found there. It was a picture of Port
land witb a new name.
Recently a pleasant appearing and very
quiet gentleman arrived from the east and
put up at the Umatilla -House in The Dalles.
Be had invested in the Orand Dallea and
had come to spy out the new city. After
allowing bis dinner to settle he concluded
to take a trip across tbe river And look -op
his purchase. He asked Mr. Smnott, pro
prietor of the hotel, wben the next train
went across the river. Mr. Sinnott, seeing
he was a tenderfoot, told him to go to the
edge of the bluff and sing out lor a siwasli,
aod it 'there were any in hearing he could
get across in a canoe in about half an hour.
Mr. Sinnott explained that there waa no
bridge for a train to pass over, and if there
had been a bridge there was. no train, and if
there were a bridge and train there ia np
place for a train to go to after it bad passed
over. The stranger was nonplussed for a
time, and then asked if there were not eleo-
trio lights there. Mr. Sinnott pointed to a
faint light that glimmered in the darkness
and said that it wis the only one he could
see and he thought that 'was in an Indian
Mr. Sinnott inquired if tbe stranger had
any interest in thd Grand Dalles, and the
latter replied that he had investei $20,000
on the representation to the agents and had
been lead to believe that the place was large
and flourishing, and that there were lots of
established industries, especially glass fac
tories and granite works, -Mr. Sinnott said
there was enough sand on the beach for all
the glass factories in the world, and as for
granite, there were mountains of it, never
touched, and not likely to be. The stranger
did not faunch and threaten to burn up the
whole country, etc., but fell into a deep
itudy. Tbe next morning he surveyed the
plateau from the balcony of tbe Umatilla
House and then took the first train for the
east. He will probably devote some ot bis
Spare time in hunting up the anther of the
Grand Dalles swindle.
