Many people wlio have been impound
oq by importunate picture dealer will
feel like voting the Carnegie medal of
heroism to the woman resident on the
bill who thrathed a couple of these
gentlemen last week. Their mode of
operation ia most exasperating (or
they usually Insist that tby know
your business better than you do your
self and that you must hare a photo
graph chat you want enlarged. Yon
know that you barea't oue, but they
know better and once inside the door
tbey stick witb the persistency of a
poroua plaster.
Tbey make a business of calling at
the house when they know the man
of the family is not at borne, and work
on tbe affection of the woman for her
children and for her husband and tell
how nice it would be to bave a large
picture of tbem in case tbey should
die. Tbey exhibit samples of highly
colored photographs of the victims
which tbey bave transformed from re
spectable looking citizens into freaks
by giving tbem pink eyes, green hair
and other grote que features and tell
you confidentially that' it is "swell"
without asking your opinion. ' You
don't care for any today, but this
worst of all nuisances Insists that if
you do not want a obromograpb you
must surely want orayou and pre
sents for your inspection a portrait
that resembles the original about as
uwnratniv aa would a. mud fonne.
He calls yourattention to the "beauti
ful" frame which is really their stock
in trade and made to sell the pioture
irrespective of any artistic merit, lbe
frame is showy but obeap and be at
first quotes you a price which be luter
splits In bull and it be sees no inclin
ation to buy reduces again and tells
you. if you are not sutialled you need
not receive it wben it is delivered.
Going to tbe mantel or table be picks
up a picture and if you are in
any way inclined to be easy goes away
witb it.
Tbe man who deliver these abortions
a few weeks later do the heavy work
and are usually of the bullying type
, who threaten all sorts of dire trouble
if yon refuse to accept their wares
wbioh you did not ask for, did not
want, and will not take. A little more
of the vigorous action such as dis
played by tbe lady on the hill will
bave a salutary affect on those fel
lows, and for this she reason deserves
tbe heartfelt thanks of a long-buffer
ing community.
Hood Klrer W as Easy.
The ball same yesterday alternoon
was a very poor exehibition of the
great American game. The visitors
simDlv were not in it, but this was
laraelv due to lack of oganization.
They bad considerable good - material,
but it was not played to advantage.
Thev had no one who could bold O

The Dalles boys had a snap. Neither
team played stiotly bih school tal

on account of tbe rain at the end of
the fifth inning, the score boing then

tbe Panama canal, and to suppress all
the evils that exist in the land.

for an appropriation for the continu
ance of construction work on the
Celilo canal, and the improvements of
all the Columbia river from its moutb
to the bead of navigation ; aud will

tbe betterment of society and good
I will work faithfully for the mi

Talks on Osteopathy.
OsteoDatbv has discovered what pby-
siciaus bave for centuries overlooked
that, first, the body gets out of ine
cbanical repair before any resulting
disease is tolerated in tbe body; tnat
disease, or sickness, is i ' the main
onlv the state of faulty adjustment and
inharmonious balance of the different
working oarts of this machine; that
disease, or paiu, or friction of parts,
or stoppage of work in our bodies, is
due specifically to some mechanical
obstruction of the blood supply or
nerve Dower of the body; and that
disease cau be cured by removing un
atural pressures, aud blockades from
blood aud nerve channels, so that the
circlating currents of nerve and blood
can tfo to the narts ueing starved ana
renew their depleted energy and vital
ity. For lttnt.
