Chaplain, who has just returned from the East, reports that there is a good time for Olympia just ahead. This is what the Reverend gentleman has been reporting for a term of years. Let us have some thing tangible this time. He re mained six weeks at Richmond, Mich., where he reports he disposed of $7,000 worth of Olympia property, and at Romeo, the same Blate, his success was equally marked, and at the World's Fair, about SI,OOO worth passed into other hands. Several of the purchasers have accompanied him home to look their possessions o'er and plan for the future. They are E. R. Sauderson and wife, and Silas Smith, of Romeo, and W. I). Clark and Dwight Lath rep, of Richmond. HAS DEVELOPED INTO A PREACHER. —Albert Sidney Gregg, well known in this community as a newspaper cor respondent, has developed into a full fledged preacher, and expects to be assigned by the M. E. Conference to some charge in this jurisdiction. Mr. Gregg has assisted at times in the lo cal department of the STANDARD, and we have ever found him to be con scientious and faithful in the discharge of duty. He was likewise correspon dent of quite a numlier of State and several Eastern and California papers. His earnings from these sources were doubtless much larger than he will receive the first few years in the itin erancy, and the assumption is, there fore, very strong, that it was a matter of duty which impelled the change. The best wishes of a host of friends will accompany Mr. Gregg and his family wherever they go. THE CIRCUB. —This popular annual visitor has come and gone, leaving the community with that feeliDg of con tentment which realization of cher ished hope always imparts. Sells & I Rentfrow's circus is not poorer, nor is it better, than many which have pre ceded it. Its main features were aim- I ply repetitions of the acts seen at all lof its predecessors, consisting of rid ing. tumbling, trapeze performances | and, of course, the excruciating wit of J the clown. Everybody who attends a circus, like those who go to see " Uncle Tom's Cabin," invest with the expec tation that the crop will be chestnuts and are not disappointed. There were j more radiant faces seen amid the sev- I eral hundred people as they emerged front the circus tent after the perform ance, than may be seen at the church doors in a month of Sundays. In ac knowledgement of hard times, doubt less, the after-performance concert and the side-show charged an admis sion fee of only a dime, instead of the regulation quarter. TRYING TO UNLOAD. —The city is again besought to aid Mr. Silsby in disposing of his Seventh street lot. It was understood, when the Northern Pacific Co. was granted certain privi leges by the city that the Silsby lot should become a part of the public highway, by purchase and dedication iby the company. This project failed from the excessive value which Mr. S. placed upon the property. He doubtless, Hawkins-like, thought that he had a corner on that particular lot that would prove a bonanza. But like the schemes which Bobby I Burns refers to, this particular one j" gang aglee." The railroad company simply bought a lot from Gen. Mc- Kenny and by a little shifting of lines the acquisition of the Silsby lot be came wholly unnecessary, without in the least encroaching upon the rights of the people. He has at various times entreated the city authorities to take up his quarrel with the company, but so far without enlisting much sympathy. IN GOOD CONDITION.— Supt. Brint nall reports the city schools to be in ,»n excellent condition, despite hard times. He reports the enrollment in ■ the several buildings for the past year :as follows: Washington 554, Lincoln j 298, Westside 110, Eastside addition 123, total 985; counted twice by trans fer 38; actual total enrollment 947. The average general attendance was: Washington school 326, Lincoln 189, Westside 64 and Eastside 18. The Su perintendent thinks that this showing lis quite creditable, when it is consid ered that this has heen a year of un | usual obstacles to uninterrupted in struction. The prevalence of child | ren's diseases, of smallpox and scarlet ■fever, and two unprecedented snow . storms, all broke into the regular work lin a manner that reduces the aggre gate results, from no fault that at taches to the service. The high-school grades, including the eighth grade of the Washington school, enrolled 129 students, an increase over the former year of 50 per cent. As I'sport'i.Ait CHASUE. —The pub lie learned with surpri e and indigna tion, a few days ago that Hon. I'. I>. Moore, State Librarian had been sup planted by the Governor's appoint ment of Frank T. Gilbert, of Walla Walla. Mr. Moore bas conducted tbe State Library in such an eflicient and courteous manner that he was exceptionally popular with all parties; so much so that it was a common expression dining the last campaign, that whichever party succeeded, Moore would not be dis tuibcd; that the State could not af ford to do without his services and ex perience and therefore he would be retained. It is generally understood that this action of the Governor was prompted by a desire to promote his private and personal ends. Mr. Moore lias heen so busy in transferring the library to bis successor that he has not had time to furnish a statement of facts for this issue, but will do so for the STANDARD next week, and has simply assured us that this action of the Governor is in violation of re peated promises, and that " there is a woman is at tbe bottom ol it." One thing is certain, tbe Governor's course in this matter is only what might be expected of him. THE DREDGER'S MOVEMENTS. — It seems that the work will goon in ac cordance with the change made and the channel will be restricted in width as it approaches the draw, to enable the appropriation to provide a channel to Fourth street, the condition on which it was made. Capt. Symonds says no change whatever will be made in the work as now mapped out, and he thinks it, under the circumstances, a fair and equitable adjustment of the matter, after it was ascertained that the sum available would not give the basin near the wharves that was at lirst designed. Next week's work will be done from the draw northward, it being found, as the excavation pro gresses, a very strong current is formed where the water passes from the na tural watercourse into the newly cut channel, the surface being a foot or more lower in the latter, causing a rapid that resembles a mill race when the tide is receding. At Fourth street, the old channel is very narrow, and the whole volume passes through an opening of probably 50 feet. The dredger people want to take advantage of the resistence atforded by the pres ent obstruction to do the work that is rendered quite difficult bv the rapid current. The material excavated will be deposited under the Westside Mill Co.'s lumber yard, on Fourth street, and a bulkhead will be constructed to hold it in place. A RARE SIOHT. —Very few op portunities have been afforded for our people to witness a genuine balloon ascension, one in which a human being takes a flight amid the clouds. Such a chance will be afforded, on the old Fair Grounds, next Sunday, when the famous aeronaut, Miss Hazel Keyes, will make the ascent, and after attaining an altitude of from one lmlf to over a mile, descend by a parachute. This thrilling sight should be seen by all, as it is an opportunity of a life time. The height to which Miss Keyes will ascend is, of course, a matter which the atmospheric con ditions of the hour must determine. If the air is still, she will fall within the radius of the 50 acres enclosed, but if there should be much wind, she will be compelled to alight on some of the prairies adjacent thereto, choice being dependent upon direction of the air currents. If the wind is north, it may be Bush prairie; if north-west Chambers prairie, and if south, she may sail over our city and land in the bay. It is hoped, however, that circumstances will not require an extensive flight and that the " show" will be confined to the area of the recreation grounds. A small price of admission will necessarily bo charged to defray the expenses, and it is hoped that those who attend will cheerfully bear their part of the cost. Tickets have been placed at 25 cents; children 15 cents, uuder ten years of age, when accompanied by parents, free. It has been computed that these rates, with a full attendance, will barely defray expenses. A FATAL ACCIDENT. —Another re sult of entrusting boys with fire-arms stands as a warning for the future. Richard Werner, a youth of 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Werner, who reside on Seventeenth street, was shot last Monday, by the accidental discharge of his gun, while hunting in Billings' ad dition, in company with a number of boys of about his own age. It seems that Richard had dropped his gun, and in lifting it from the ground the hammer must have come in contact with something which caused its dis charge. The shot took effect in the left hip and arm, tearing the flesh into shreds, and it likewise set fire to his clothing. The boys had enough pres ence of mind to strip the burning garments from his body and send some of their number for assistance. The men working on the switch at the point, immediately responded to the boys' frantic appeals and went to the place where the accident occurred. Hastily constructing a litter, they carried the wounded lad to the North ern Pacific depot, where he was placed in a vehicle and taken home. l)rs. Kincaid and Wyman dressed the wounds. A portion of the hip bone was removed, with wadding and shot, the patient being under the influence of chloroform for about an hour, from the effects of which he with difliculty rallied. The doctors expressed the opinion, however that life might be saved without amputation, as the ra dial artery was uninjured. He died, however, Tuesday morning, and was buried yesterday afternoon, the funeral services taking place at the residence. Quite a large number of school children, his late companions, were present. EXCELLENT ACCOUSTIC PROPERTIES. —Visitors to tlio great tabernacle at Salt Lake never tire in describing its wonderful accoustic properties. A favorite test of these qualities has been in dropping a pin at one end of the large oval-shaped auditorium, white others listened for the sound at the opposite side. A pin dropped from an elevation of three inches, it is said, can be heard the length of the building, a distance of several hun dred feet, and this is deemed so re markable a quality that it has become the theme of world-wide comment. It may not be known, however, even to our own people, that we have a building in this city which possesses almost, if not quite equal qualities. Olympia Theater has received uni versal commendation from public speakers and others, but it has not been known until quite recently that the building differed so materially from others in accoustic qualities. Actual experiment has shown that an ordinary pin dropped one-half an inch at the rear of the stage may be heard at the rear of the gallery, a distance of 130 feet. The faintest of articulate language, or a loud whisper, is like wise distinctly heard that distance, apparently as clearly and without more effort than across an ordinary room. It is probably owing to the cove in the ceiling that the sound waves are reproduced at distant points with 60 much accuracy, or it may be that the rear wall of the stage being constructed of wood and therefore reso nant and responsive to sound waves, serves the purpose of an immense sounding-board and produces these effects. STATE NEWS. Early peaches are being secured near Asotin. Thieves have been breaking into stores at Garlield. Frost has nipped young fruits in Whitman county.

By a vote of 763 to 245. Walla Walla last week decided to float $1(50,000 bonds for constructing a gravity svs sem of water works in opposition to the private companies at present en gaged in the business. Mr. Liutner, an old resident of Sprague, while at work on a new building, missed his footing and fell to the cellar, striking on his head and producing concussion of the brain.

Walla Walla's famous Salvation Army soup house has closed down. For a long time they fed 100 every day, but owing to the harvest many went to work and finally the number dwindled down to 05. Of this number there are many who never would work as long as they could subsist without doing so. William L. and L. F. Thompson, John F. Kincaid, William A. llorner and Elijah 0. Meade have begun an injunction suit against the city council of Sumner to restrain it from placing and floating $17,000 worth of bonds to provide a system of water works.

The Cheney Sentinel says the yield of wheat iu that section will be simply enormous, averaging perhaps 40 bushels per acre. While a rain might benefit growing grain, it is not needed to such an extent that the country is suffering from the want of it. From all portions of the great grain belt of Eastern Washington comes the same encouraging report. Considerable excitement prevails at Cle-Elunt over news of the discovery of an immense deposit of native copjier on tbe Upper Tennaway and in tbe Peshastin and Trout lake mineral belt. Tests indicate tbe presence of considerable silver in the copper ore. Tbe discoveries were made by N. F. Beverly, of Seattle, and William Branam, of Cle-Elum. The Belliugham Bay Improvement Company have donated lumber for bridging Clearbrook creek on the west side of the railroad, where the county road is soon to be opened. This will be an important change, as it will place the public road on the opposite side of the railroad from the school house, instead of immediately in front of it, where it now is. Thurston county's assessment, just completed, is not as high as for several previous years. The list develops the fact that there are 68 taxpayers in the county assessed for SIO,OOO or upward. The Northern Pacific railroad property in the countv is assessed at between $500,000 and $600,000, the Port Town send Southern at $70,000 and the Union Pacific at SIO,OOO. The wregon Improvement Company is sinking a new slope at the Franklin mine on the McKay vein, near the No. 12 mine of the Black Diamond Com pany, for thi purpose of getting belter air and ventilation, and at the same time working hack to the existing workings from the old slope. It is ex pected that it will take nearly two yeare to connect the new with the old slope. Work on Cheney's new $19,000 school-house is progressing rapidly. The granite foundation is completed, and the brick walls have reached a height of several feet. One can now obtain a fair idea of the size of the building, and it is evident that the structure will be an ornament to the city, as it will be large, well built and of handsome design. It will be com pleted about September 20. At New Whatcom T. J. Parr went to the ice factory and took with hint his large shepherd dog. The dog saw a kitten in the factory and immediately started after it. The kitten jumped through the rapidly revolving belt which runs the condenser, and the dog followed but was caught iu the belt and carried over the pulley. When he was gotten out he was about 10 feet long and dead as a mackeral. J. L. Comstock, a rancher at Elbe, in the Succotash valley, went outside the house to a small clearing where he had been burning trees the day before. Several trees were burning and were about ready to fall. Shortly after Mr. Comstock went out the fam ily heard an awful crash in the timber, and looking out saw that two large trees had fallen. They called for Mr. Comstock, but received no answer. The wife flurried to the fallen trees, and was horrified to find that her husband was lying across one tree with another on top of him. His body was horribly mangled and com pletely disemboweled. The neighbors were called, and it was necessary to saw the tree in two before the mangled corpse Could be extricated. The City Council have passed a re. solution directing J. W. Crawford to remove the Los Angeles house from the alley in Block 72. As the block is wholly composed of " water lots." Mr. C. thinks that it is somewhat of a hardship to require him to open a roadway which leads into a mud flat and is no use to anybody, when others are allowed undisturbed possession of alleys which would be used if the jum pers were ousted. The steamer Estella is temporily laid up an account of dull times. Mr. Littlejohn has appointed James Mitch ell as watchman on the boat.

Ithasheon the leading subject of professional research and study In all ages. Hut notwithstanding this fact it fs not gener- | | i I ut-mu. Recent discoveries have demonstrated that all the organs of the laxly are under the con trol of the nerve centers, located In or near the base of the brain, and that when these are deranged the organs which they supply with nerve fluid are afso deranged. When it is re memhered that a serious injury to the spinal cord will cause paralysis of the body below the Injured point, because the nerve force is prevented by the Injury from reaching the paralyzed portion, it wilf lie understood how the derangement of the nerve centers will cause the derangement of the various organs which they supply with nerve foroo. Two-thirds of chronic diseases are due to the imperfect action of the nerve centers at the base of tlio brain, not from a derange ment primarily originating in the organ It self. The great mistake of physicians In treating these diseases Is that they treat the organ rather than tiie nerve centers which are the cause of the trouble. L)u. I'ltANKi.l.N MII.ES. the celebrated spe cialist.lias profoundly studied this subject for over 20years, and has made many Important discoveries In connection with It, chief among them being the facts contained in the above statement, and that the ordinary methods of treatment are wrong. All headache, dizzi ness, dullness, confusion, pressure, blues, mania, melancholy, Insanity, epilepsy, St. Vitus dance, etc., are nervous diseases no matter how caused. The wonderful success of l)r.
