A High CMnesfrMian Weiaing

THEY CAME FROM FAR AX.ASKA.
There was a high old time in a Chi
nese tenement house on Second street
between Benton and Lafayette streets
last evening, the occasion being the
celebration of a marriage between a
Chinese and an Alaska Indian woman.
Following the ceremony, which was
performed by Rev. Dr. Garner, of this
city, the Pagan and his squaw Jbride
together witk a host of Chinese
friends gathered around a banquet
table laden with sharks fins, birds
nests soup and other delicacies dear
to the Pagan heart. A cheap brand
ofwine'was also liberally dispensed.
Several Chineeo women graced the
scene and. sang solos to the accom
paniment of Chinese fiddles and torn
toms. The bride was the center ot at
traction and as the groom looked upon
her portly body and gazed at her
brown and greasy face he appeared
supremely happy. The uniting of

An ugly story preceeded the arrival of

Port Townsend. It was to tho effect
that Mou had bartered his compan

golden harvest. This story is denied

An To tho Sheriff Boarding Prisoners.
It has been stated bv tha finlpm
Statesman that tho law in this state
governing sheriffs in their charges for
boardincr prisoners. nroterlv inter
preted allowed a sheriff 5 a week for
each of four prisoners, and when the
number exceeded four ho should be
allowed S3 each for each additional
prisoner above four. According to
that ho would receivo S20 for four
prisoners, 823 for five, 2G for six.
The section of law governing tho case
reads as (oilews:
Section 2341. A sheriff shall bo en
titled to receive $5 a week for keeping
and boarding any person arrested upon
a civil or criminal Tirocflas. in thn nnmitv
jail, and a proportionate part thereof for
any fraction of a week, provided that, if
ut any iimo ine numoer oi persons con
fined on criminal process in such jail
shall exceed four, then the sheriff shall
receive $3 per week for boarding and
keeping each one of said prisoners dnring
the period such prisoners shall remain in
The ordinary interpretation of Eng
lish language would seem to make it
plain that the sheriff is allowed S3 for
eachprisonerwhen the number does not
exceed four, but when it exceeds four
ho will only get S3 each for the num
ber he has in custody. So, for four
prisoners ho would bo allowed $20 per
week, while for five he would only be
S15 per week. Sheriff Smidt sas that
the latter mode of interpretation of
the law is the one that is applied to
the estimation of his bills, whether it
it be reasonable or otherwise.

THE CRYSTAL SLIPPER,
A Gorgeous Spectacnlar ProflncHon
f onderfQlly Attracfe
CROWDED no USES EVERY SIGHT
On "Wednesday evening last there
opened at the iTarquam Grand in
Portland, one of tho most brilliant
spectacular extravaganzas ever pro
duced in that city, entitled the "Crys
tal Slipper, or Princo Pettiwitz and
Little Cinderella." Every evening
the vast house is crowded to its ut
most capacity, and seats are sold sev
eral days in advance. The play is re
plete with fun, and intensely interest
ing situations. The ballet and chorus
girls are mostly beautiful in face and
form, especially when arrayed in
dazzling costumes, scanty and unique,
and m the ballet many now features
Miss Louise Montague as the
"Prince" is perfection personified in
face, form and voice, sharing well the
honors with the charming little Miss
Ida Mull, as "Cinderella," who is the
smallest lady in the entire company,
a child in height, but a perfect wpman
in form, with a beautiful childish face,
and a voice of wonderful power and
sweetness, making her a great favorito
with the audience, admired by tho
men and beloved by the women.
Tho transformation scenes are mar
vels of stage mechanism, especially
the closing one which has many
changes, each opening up more grand
ly beautiful, and producing at last a
veritable vision of enchanted fairy land.
To-morrow night it is given for the
last time, giving place on Monday
evening to the splendid melodrama
"The Stowaway," which will hold the
boards for a week. Edwin Foy as
"Yosemite," the baron's valet, and W.
S. Dabollas "Baron de Boulevard"
sustain the comic side of tho piece
and are exceedingly mirth provoking,
and remarkably original in their ef
forts. Manager Friedlander has more than
delighted his immense audiences with
the "Crystal Slipper," and not only
Portland, but from all tho citiss for a
long distance, many people have come
to witness the brilliant niece. As-
torians in largo numbers have at
tended. Tho costumes worn are cost
ly and elaborate, and tho mounting of
tne piece is superb. Cinderella s
chariot is drawn by four beautiful
littlo ponies, and tho team turns
around on'the stage in regular style.
Many features of great interest are
introduced, which should bo seen to

Dr. Prentice Will Cure the First Cane
Of Cr&a-Eyes and Epileptic Fits -Free
On the Day of JIU
Arrival in Astoria.
A man well known in this community
writes the following interesting letter:
"1 was chopping a stnmp four weeks
ago, when a living chip struck me in
the eye; for a short time 1 was entirely
blind, 'llien partial sight returned
again. I nurtured hope and continrifcd
to treat it at home, until ten das ago,
when 1 began to abandon hope of ever
seeing perfectly again, unless some
thing more than ordinary was done.
1 then connciled two of the leading
Oculists of Portland, who told me one
eje would have to be cut out to save
the other. It did not exactly suit me to
have my 03 e cut out, and so I sought
other council. I went to Dr. Prentice,
the Oculist, then at Portland, and he
laughed at tho idea of its being neces
sary to cut my cj e out; I joinc d m ihf
laugh, for it was on my side. 1
hae been free from pain since the first
day's visit to Dr. Prentice, and im
proved steadily, and am now en'.irelv
well again. I feel bafe in saj ing that it
Dr. Prentice cannot cure a case he will
always say so Tjios. 11. Fos,

A Touching Scene Witnessed By a Portland
One week ago we recehed an invita
tion to witness a delicate surgical oper
ation on an eye. he patient was the
17-j ear-old daughter of Harrison Ilaj
For three years she had been blind 111
both 03 es with a cataract, and was
obliged to grope her way about in total
darkness The patient, without takiug
chloroform, submitted to the following
operatien: bhewasnow readvforthc
surgical part of the work, and we Mood
in breathless anxiety m Dr. Prentice
placed the point or his knife at the
side of the esebal , carefully touched
the point of the cornea, then the blade
entered the 03 c; we saw It pass through
the eye in front of the pupil and then
come out at tho opposite side. It was
then drawn upward, and a cut made of
about one-third of tho circumference of
the ball. Another instrument was then
passed in back of the pupil, and almost
on the instant the girl said: "Oh, Dr.
Prentice 1 can see you." This was
spoken in tones well calculated to bring
tears to one's eyes. From the time
the knife touched the es'e unlil the
patient could see, it was just one min
ute. She was allowed to see those
about her for a moment then the 030
was closed and bandaged.
In just one week after the operation
she came into our office and was able to
read our paper. She also wrote a letter
home, saying; "Dear parents, 1 can
sec and am happj."
Mr. Jerome W. Campbell. General
Superintendent nf the Willamette
Bridge Railway Co , saw this operation.

I am going to tell you of the extraordinary
euro your Cuticurv Kkhjdjes performed on
mo 'About tho 1st of April last I noticed
somo red pimples liko coming out nil over
my body, but thought nothing of it until
Foaio timo later on, when it began to look
uko spots of mortar spotted
on, and which camo off in
layers accompanied with
itching. L would scratch
every pigbt until I wasTaw,
then tbo next night tho
scales, being formed mean
while wcro scratched off
again. In vein did I consult
all tho doctors in tho county,
but without nid. After giv
ing up all hopes of rccovory.
I hanncnod to seo nn ndver-
tfcement in tho newspaper
'about vour Cuticitra llr-uv-
dics, and purchased thorn from my druggist,
and dotained aImot immediato relief. I bo
gan tb notico that tho scaly eruptions gradu
ally droppod off and disappeared onojby ono,
until I had been.fully cured. I had tho dis
caso thirteen months beforo I began taking
tho Rkmediks, and in four or Gvo weeks was
entirely cured. My diseaso was eczema and
psoriasis. I know of a great many who havo
taken tho Ukukdies, and tbaak mo for tho
kuowlcdgo of them, espcciallyinothers who
havo babes with scaly eruptions on their
hcadi and. bodies. I cannot oxpres3 my
thanks to you. My body was covered with
calo3, and I was an awful spootaole to up
hold. Now my skin is as clear as a baby's.
