Miss Marion Wiust's birthday party
Inst week the compositor inadver
tently got his fingers into the wrong
box, picking up an 8 instead of a 7,
and making the article read her
iHth birthday instead of her 17th,
a mistake which nearly caused the
unlucky, blundering typesetter the
loss of his scalp. We assure the
charming little lady wc had not the
slightest intention of making her so
old, and will make up for it on the
Vccasiqn of her next birthday.
J. M. Lawrence, the new U. S.
commissioner for Rend, arrived
heVeon Tuesday, the 21st. Mr.
Lawrence had a hard trip in from
Shanikp, and was nearly starved to
death. lie was taken down to the
"owl's roost," however, and fed on
trout which the Rulletin force had
caught. Wc counted the vertebrtw
of 49 stacked about his plate, the
luast of which was 11 inches long.
If Mr. Lawrence Is as competent a
commissioner as he is a fish-cuter,
the people of Rend and the. people
who have any land business to do
with him need have no fears.

Ucnd to Celebrate.
If our proposed Fourth of July
celebration is a success, it will be a
great thing for Rciurand its busi
ness men. Tlicrc is no reason why
it should not be a success, and a
big one. Of course, the successful
culmination of thin celebration will
have to depend upon the rustling

charge, and they cannot do it nil,

On Saturday evening, the 18th,

Arlc C. Hampton, president.
Doji P. Rca, vice-president.

The association now consists of
about thirty members, numbering
nearly all the younger people of the
vicinity, and its subscription books
arc open to all comers. A great
deal of interest has been shown by
the young men of the community,
and they have contributed their
initiation fee of fifty cents each very

On Wednesday evening of this
week another rousing meeting was
well attended at the sclioolhousc, in
order to ratify the constitution and
by-laws and to receive reports of
committees, etc. It was suggested
that the Rascball Association cor
respond with one of the Princville
teams or some other team in the
neighborhood and open negotiations
for a game on the Pourth of July.
It was also suggested, incidentally,
to this, that the association get up
a regular program for a celebration
on that day. The following com
mittee was appointed to arrange the
program and to invite the co-operation
of the firms, business men and
citizens of Rend: I) P Rca, D F

pointed to superintend the work of
preparing n suitable ball ground,
consisting of: 1 M Stewart, Chas
Stroud, 1-d Hill.
There will be a meeting of the
Association on Thursday, the 30th,
and everyone interested should turn
out in force, as we want to make
the ball team a winner and the
prospective Fourth of July celebra
tion u sure go.
llow to Cook Trout.
Many of the best cooks in the
country cannot cook the speckled
trout. If you simply throw them
into the frying pan and cook them
as you would a steak, your effort to
tickle the palates of your epicures
will lie a Aat failure, and they will
arise from the table after trying to
eat n piece of one fish and forcing
that down wondering ' whatever
there can be iu trout that people
try to ent them. If the following
rules for preparing the fish for the
table nrc adhered to, you will find
that you will never have enough to
1. Roll them in a mixture of
flour and corumcal, and,after.greas
ing your pan well with lard (butter
bettor, but not essential), place fish
over a medium brisk fire.
a, Season thoroughly with salt
rilid iepper, Don't be sparing with
3. Fry till there is a beautiful
crust of brown on under side of the
fish. Don't turn until brown.
4. Turn, and season the cooked
side. Sprinkle pepper and salt on
until you have enough, ttd then
add a little more.
5. Then fry tho other side till
the brown covers -the specks on tho
6, Serve hot.
Follow thtfsa rules to the letter,
and you have a feast a gorge.
Omit one of them and your fish arc-
spoiled for the tabls, btit can lie
utilized for fertilizer. This recipe
is given gratuitously by the Rulle
tiu force to the public', and can be
attested to if necessary We olaim
no monopoly in the art of cooking
trout. Rut it isn't every cook that
prepares them properly.
Pin this over your range.
The following we clip from the
Wasco News. Wc do not vouch
for the efficacy of the recipe as a
preventive of smallpox, but as a
good spring medicine fdY everyone,
even those in the best of health, it
is undoubtedly worth trying: "An
ounce of prevention is worth apound
of cure, and one of the best reme
dies for the prevention of smallpox
is a mixture of equal parts of salts,
sulphur and cream of tartar. The
dose should vary from a teaspoon
ful to a tablcspoonful each day, ac
cording to the cfTcct it has upon the
patient just enough to keep the
bowels regular." This, together
with disinfection, vaccination. and
isolation, and a hot bath thrown iu
scmi-occasionally for variety, should
guarantee the absence of smallpox,
and deserves the consideration of
By Mny 1st we will have a
full line of Trout Rods and Cane
Poles, Files, Lines, Leaders, Spoon
Hooks, etc, which we will dispose
of nt Princville prices. Reserve
your purchases until you examine
