The Dalles Chronicle.
Wednesday we referred to the wedding
of a former Dalles girl which, was to
take place at llood River Thanksgiving
day, and at the home of Mrs. Mary
Booth yesterday at 10:30 her daughter,
Miss Caroline, was united in marriage
with Georite H. Cnlbertson. Beside
Mrs. Booth and her son,John Booth, and
Mr. and Mrs. W. II. Sharp and family,
there were present I. U. Dallas, an luti
mate friend of the groom, and Misses
Anna Fulton, Anna and Laura Thomp
son and Maybel Mack. The Booth home
had been decorated for theoccasion with
chrysanthemums and Oregon grape and
presented a very cozy appearance as Kev.
J. L, Ilersliner, of the Hood Hiver Con
lireuational church, pronounced the
words which united them for life, the
Kpiscopal service being used. A wed
ding dinner, the excellence of which
may be vouched for by Dallesites who
in former years have enjoyed the hos
pitality of the Booth family, was served
and Mr. and Mrs. Culbertsou.left on the
afternoon train for Portland. Upon re
turning they will make their home at
Hood River, where the groom is en
gaged in the real estate business. Dalles
friends have more than a passing inter
est in the welfare of the bride, who from
childhood has displayed a sweet dispo
sition and a charming, modest nature,
which attracted everyone who knew her.
They will be glad to know that she has
chosen well.

good many complained of eating too
much turkey or mince pie.
Christmas is the next thing on the
list. The pupils are arranging for a
small Christmas tree and programme to
be held on the afternoon before the

a week before Christmas. It is a trifle

much longer time for the little folk to
enjoy their fun.

At a recent meeting of the Skamania

this path, using a pole about 20 feet

pushed the pole clear down without
striking the water.

D. L. Davidson of Willow Flat will

thankful for here in Hood River valley.
It is a day of retrospection; a day when
smiles take the place of frowns. A day
when the world seems kind instead of
cruel. This alone is worth the price
of the turkey.

to the fact that there the people have
ever possessed more of freedom than in
the colder localities. For two centuries
or more the great mass of people of the
uplands were slaves. They tolled In
the mines, with a guard of soldiers set
over them; they built the public roads;
they worked the ranches, farms and

scarcely more than the food they ate.
The great farms of the uplands have
ever required sure help, and so each
ranchman bad his serfs. Many estates
possessed hundreds of them. Thus all
Individuality was crushed out of the
lower class, and the terrible effect of

The people of the hot lands fared bet

of the uplands, although they now
have the nilvantiige of n fairly good
public system of education nnd are be

main a distinctively uniuiihitiotis peo

been more or less a factor in the life
of the community in which he resided.

Facta About Gluntn.
That very few" of the giants who
have ever lived have been healthy or
well formed recent researches nroie
beyond a doubt. All we know about
Goliath Is that he was very tall, hut in
the second book of Kings we read
about another giant, who had more
fingers than nn ordinary human beliir.

this is invariably a token of degener

giant who was so tall that his body
filled two beds nt night, but whose
legs were so weak that he could hardly
stand upright. William L'vans. the

self for work must become dull and
stupid, and it is the same way with
the nmsele3 of the body. They are
filled with blood vessels that should

eral purposes, and one Is to carry away
l:t mil of the waste fluids of the body,
i'ho Ic.ngs are a sort of refinery, and
tht! blood is n distilling nge.nt. If the
blood becomes thick nnd unhealthy and
sluggish the body does not keep Its
youthful state. Kyes grow dull; Hps
lose their redness; the complexion Is
sallow and unlovely.
H is an easy and simple matter to

A most excellent scheme Is to take
long, slow full breaths whenever you

Such habits nre valuable, most valu
able, but because they don't cost any
thing and are a little trouble lots of
women fancy there Is nothing in such
practices. Nonsense! Look at the ath

healthiest, strongest, finest look tog
creatures in existence.

Love la the Mainaprlaff.
Political economists have told us
that self Interest Is the mainspring of
industry. It Is not true. Love Is the

his plow and the merchant at his desk,
that gives courage to the soldier and
patience to the teacher.
