The Multnomah, it is expected, will resume her trips Sunday. The weather report for to-night and Saturday is " Occasional rain." Miss Kmma Page left yesterday for New York, to be absent a couple of Weeks. The steamer 1 toe tor brought up Yesterday M'd sacks of oysters for she down-Sound trade. t'barli s J. KeSha/.e, of th;s eity, has h-en granted an increase of pension by the Pension bureau at Washington. Whitney «k Cameron are preparing to move tiieir market to the building forinerlv occupied by itrewcr s market. The steamship Corona leaves Se attle for Alaska to-morrow, with X. W. Toklas, of this place, a- a passen ger for .1 uneau. This morning the steamer Aber deen took out tin- furniture of the Jef ferson Hotel, lately purchased by A\ m. Fi tzhenrv, of Tacuiua. Prof. Byrne and wife have returned from an extended residence in Texas. Mr. B. is a sister of Mr. Callow, our popular County Clerk. The next steamship for San Fran cisco will be the Walla Walla Wednes day. The City of 'l'opcka will leave Seattle for Alaska Thursday. Wednesday the following passengers left for the Fast over the Fit ion Pa cific route: J.. L. Butler and wife, and Leon James for Anthony, Kansas. Fggs have advanced to 30 cents per dozen; butter is strong at 35 and 40 cents per roll, and potatoes have fallen to 45 cents per hundred in Olympia markets. Martin has moved his feed stable Irom Sixth and Columbia streets, to the commodious barn building on Second street, between Washington and Franklin. The Chambers market, corner of Washington and Fourth streets, has received a new and modern front, the glazed windows being removed and wire netting substituted. Aliss Alay Weston, daughter of R. S. and Alay Weston, entertained her young friends, at the family residence on Chestnut and Davis streets, on Hallowe'en, last Saturday evening. The steamship City of Puebla sailed from Seattle for San Francisco, this morning, with the following Olympia passengers: Francis Leeper, Airs. Georgia Brown and Aliss Alice AI. Aus tin. In noting the burial of Mrs. Vina Stretch last week, we incorrectly, stated that she was a daughter of B. F. instead of Aaron Hartsock. The similarity of the family name led to the inadvertancy. The Board of Pardons, Tuesday, recommended an absolute pardon for J. W. Austin, convicted of burglary at Port Townsend, and the commutation of the sentence of Donaldson, con victed in Seattle of perjury, to im prisonment in the county jail for one ydar. While the report submitted by Prof. Hawes of our city schools shows a loss of two per cent, in enrollment for the past month and nine per cent, when compared with the same month last year, the average of punctuality and Attendance shows a slight increase over last year. It was a pleased audience which filed out of Olympia Theater, last evening, after witnessing the masterly rendition of " The Hoosier Doctor" by D >sjlell and his talented company. M nl is a true star, and he carries tl .iearts of his auditors by storm from start to finish. The Board of Trade meet to-night to consider a plan suggested in con nection with the improvement and ex tension of railroad track on Jefferson street, which is to secure from the State an option by first payment on a block or two of tide land at the new track terminus to hold in reserve as Bites for manufactories. Fred Carlyon has just received a bushel of watches, and the finest dis play of rings, chains, lockets, etc., ever made in Olympia. He has everything needed in the line of holiday gifts, an niversary remembrances, and love tokens. Call and see his stock at his new stand at the Fourth street en trance to the Cliamlter's block. A. E. Woodard has furnished this office with a sample of cider of his own make, which is exceedingly pleas ant to the taste and we believe alto gether devoid of all those attributes which temperance people affirm make some beverages bite like serpents. The " boys" say they will risk all the snakes that can be found in such liquids as the sample before us. The City Council at its special meeting yesterday morning adopted a motion to instruct the Street Com missioner to expend not to exceed 1200 in improvement of Jefferson 6treet, and as the County Commis sioners have appropriated a like sum, the subscription of the citizens will be ample for the improvement contemp lated and work will doubtless soon be gin. " South Before the War" is the next attraction at Olympia Theater, on Monday, the 18th inst. It embraces an even 50 colored minstrels, male and female, and is the largest and best organization of darkey talent in the profession. Their specialty con sists of those plantation melodies which find such a ready echo in the hearts of all who have heard them, camp-meeting and hallelujah choruses, wing dancing, scenes in the cotton field, etc. This company travels in its own $12,000 Pullman palace car. In response to call of Mayor Byrne the City Council met in special ses sion Yesterday at 10 o'clock A. M., to organize a Board of Health for con sideration of reported prevalence of scarlet fever in the eastern suburbs of the city. On motion the City Coun cil, witli the Chief of Police and School Clerk Schomber were desig nated and appointed said Board of health and the board elected John Miller Murphy chairman and J. B. Schofield clerk. After organization, Mr. Schomber was intructed to as certain the extent reported in fection, and the chairman was author ized to select some suitable person to act as Health Officer to report at a special meeting of the Council to be held to-night. The fall term of the Superior Court, udge Ayer presiding, convenes next . ues day. The jury list for the term n '°" ows: A. M. Rowe, Woodland ; h - Parker, South Bay; C. D. Fones, ympta; W. F.

Neylon is doing great work j with powder and stump-puller tliisj fall. Air. J. X. Markbam returned home) last week, from work in .t logging; camp near Cosmopolis. David Provoe returned home last > Saturday from a two months' cruising j expedition near Hood's Canal. The dance in the Delphi ball was; quite a success, music being furnished j by Professors Brown and Xalton. Nevlon's farm produced till bushels potatoes this year, Hnrlows, 2 !l bush els and Dempsy's about 250 bushels. A Literary Society was organized by the people of Delphi, a few days ago, which Mr. C. W. Henry is President. An enjoyable time is expected. Two boys, during Sabbath-school, last Sunday, tied a can to a dog's tail, then gave him a kick, lie ran under the school-house, causing quite an ex citement. The shingle-bolt camp on Waddle Creek lias shut down. It was struck by MeKinley prosperity and failed to survive the shock. Several men are out of work and without winter's grub as the result. FADDY. BUSH PRAIRIE BREVITIES. Harry Dickgiescr is digging potatoes for John Mcleod. Airs. Ed. Levee is getting to lie quite an expert bicycle rider. James Welsh, of Wilkeson, was visiting with friends on the prairie last week. J. A. Hunt has returned from Se attle where he has been working the past month. Messrs. Robison, Horton and Levee spent Monday digging for the festive clam, at Alud Bay. A number of the citizens of Bel more attended a dance at Fullerville last Saturday night. Several of our residents attended the stereopticon exhibition at South Union Saturday night. There was a large attendance at Sabbath school last Sunday. Rev. Drury preached a short discourse. Mrs. Preston C. Brewer, of Roches ter, visited her parents, Air. and Airs. John Alorgan Saturday and Sunday. Some of the Tumwater and Olym pia wheelmen have been working on a bicycle path across the prairie this week. Wonder what has become of J. W. Batcheller? He used to come and visit at a certain place on the prairie quite often, but we haven't seen him for nearly a month. ROBIN HOOD. BUCODA BREVITIES. Mrs. Shead is able to be up and around again. Mrs. B. E. Loomis is slowly recover ing from her recent illness. Wm. Johnson purchased a fine Jer sey cow of Dr. Mead last week. Geo. E. Thompson, of Olympia, has succeeded A. N. Biggs as Receiver at the sawmill. We are glad to hear that Mr. John Heycock is getting better. He lias been a great sufferer. B. E. Loomis has been making im provements in his store and residence and building an addition to his ware house. There is a great deal of sickness m and around Bucoda and Dr. Mead is busy day and night attening his num erous patients. Archie Utter has added a stock of fine jewelry to his store. Now the boys know where to get their best girl a Christmas present. Dame Rumor says wedding bells are about to ring again in Bucoda; also that any one who wishes a Cook should apply to the widow Johnson. Hobos are getting quite numerous around town and some of them belong to the upper ten, for if they are so fortunate as to get bread atone house they will go to the next and ask for butter. B. C. Loomis received several air tight heaters last week, and they went like hot cakes, and he has orders for several more. They are a great in vention and will pay for themselves in one season in the saving of fuel. There was a large attendance at the church Monday night, to listen to a temperance lecture by a Mrs. Holen beck from Puyallup, and the lady's ef forts were doubtless well appreciated by the size of the collection taken. There was the usual amount of tricks played by the boys Satur day night. A little innocent fun is all right, but when it comes to de stroying property it is a serious matter that should be severely dealt with. Then perhaps parents would see the wisdom of keeping their boys at home o' nights. SPOOPKNDYKE. SUDDEN DEATH. Mrs. Josephine Brown, who has lived many years in her residence on Maple Park, and who had until about a fortnight ago en joyed exceptionally good health, was suddenly prostrated by peritonitis, and died at St. Peter's Hospital Saturday morning abeut 2 o'clock. Mrs. B. was born in Buffalo, N. Y., and was 46 years of age. She came to this State (then Territory) when a mere child, with her father, Eli Hathaway, who settled with his family on Whidby Island. Her husband, D. M. Brown, died several years ago, since which time she lived alone, with the excep tion of innumerable pets, consisting of birds and quadrupeds, of which she was exceedingly fond. In fact this trait of character was so marked as to excite general comment. She was a woman of warm heart, and the needy never went empty handed from the door. The funeral sermon was preached in the M. E. Church Sunday afternoon and interment was made in Masonic cemetery. KEARNEY & Co. have just received a carload of Nebraska corn; also a car load of flour, which they are selling cheap for cash. Every sack of flour guaranteed. The parties who stole the sink piping from rny house on Eastside have been located, and they will save arrest by returning the property. L. P. VENEN. OLYMPIA, NOV. 2,1897. KAKMVAL I)E KOMMERCE. It would lie »ini|tly impossible with in the space at our command to pre sent anything like a review of the gor geous spectacle presented by the fifty ladies who contributed their time and talent in aid of the entertainment at Olympia Theater, Monday and Tuesday evenings. While the adage "Indis criminate praise is no praise," may be true in the main, it involves an im putation of insincerity which is by no means true in this instance. When we assert that all the representatives possessed merit, either in originality of conception, magnificence of detail, or in ipiaint or lively humor, we but re-echo the applause that each re ceived as they passed in a delightful kaleidiscope of grace and color before the public eye. It is impossible, however, to omit brief reference to a few of the most notable exhibits which partook of the legitimate object of the Carnival to call attention to the business interests of our enterprising little city. Trominent among these was the showing made by the Mottman Mer cantile Co., who were in the lead in this as in other matters, and the beau tiful costume worn by Miss Ida Cham bers elicited universal admiration, and demonstrated that " You can really do l etter at Mottmau's." The display by the Light »L Power Co., was probably the most beautiful and interesting of all, but as that " grasping corporation" had a monop oly of the subtle fluid, even the beauty of their representative—Aliss Watson —failed to make it a successful com petitor for a prize. AI. O'Connor's display of wall pajier was unique and beautiful. It con sisted of a large fan made of strips of wall decorations, behind which Aliss Fdna Rogers gorgeously attired, posed as representative. The fan separated and the young lady passed in front of the audiance and returning to her pedestal, the fan again closed. This with the calcium effects was one of the best designs for fixing upon the memory of observers the object of the entertainment—advertisement of busi- T. I. McKinney's display made by Miss Janette Thompson, was likewise appropriate, the young lady being decorated with articles suggestive ef the sweet breezes from spicy isles be yond the sea. She carried a basket from which was distributed among the audience samples of McKenny's fam ous Baking Powder. Sawyer Filley's display was not less unique. It consisted of a huge frame representing a package of their celebrated baking powder, from which Mrs. Cheim showered sample parcels of that popular home product. W. Chambers Si Co.'s representation —by Miss Edith Cavanaugh—might have been mistaken lor " Mary and Her Lamb," were it not for the linger ing flavor of those delicious mutton roasts sent out by the firm to their their many customers. The same may be said of the repre sentation by Chambers & Connolly by Miss Chapelle Skillman, who had a diminutive porker in silken cords which persisted in monopolizing the time and attention of the audience. The self-possession of the little maiden was admirable. She sang several ap propriate verses notwithstanding piggy insisted upon blendiug his discordant squeals with the sweet notes of the singer. He succeeded, however, in making this exhibit the most uproar ious and in eliciting the sympathy as well as admiration of the audience. Whitney & Cameron were not a whit behind their competitors in die market trade, a very beautiful repre sentation being made for them by Miss Ida Mackay. It was ou wheel-, and one of the best displays made. It took up a large proportion of the stage to portray Miss Wheeler's milli nery business. It was made up of sev eral figures with Miss Lily Matson in the center, and the picture was em bellished with the many beautiful ar ticles which entrance woman's eye. One of the most beautiful emblems of trade was the living statue repre senting the Olympia Marble Works. Miss Bessie Scubey made a charming Galatea. A truly classic representative of the Olpmpia Water Co. was presented by Miss Maud Mackay as a Spanish seno riia water-carrier. The jewelry business of Fred Car lyon was beautifully exemplified by flashing adornments of beauty and great price. Joliu Byrne, the grocer, found a graceful representative in Miss Rena Johnson. One of the best acting displays was by Miss Ruth Allison, who represent ed the confectionery business of W. N. Harris in " The Dago Fruit Vender." The well-known Boston Kitchen displayed a charming tableau, in which a table party, with Miss Georgia Fisher at the head, was wonderfully sugges tive of the good cheer of that popular establishment. Mr. Dobbins, the undertaker, found an admirable suggestion of the bright side of his sombre calling in a tableau of the " Resurrection"—a child rising from the tomb to a life of immortality. Jos. T. Kearney & Co. had a whole line of goods on a diminutive express wagon, drawn by four little girls. Miss Rose Kesterson gracefully held the reins. The Brewer's Exchange tableau would have been a Maud Mnlh r only that the rake and the judge wi re not visible. In place of the former was a pitchfork, but the judge was conspicu ous for his absence. The tableau rep resented the feed dep artmeut of the Exchange. Miss Ray Shields seemed really " nice enough to eat," when she ap peared as the representative of the City Bakery, festooned with dough nuts, cookies and crackers, and a bride's cake for a helmet. She literally " took the cake" in subserving the object of such displays. An exceedingly beautiful tableau was presented by the Capital Brewing Co., with Mrs. D. C. Jenkins as the central figure, poised upon a barrel of necUr.w veritable Circe, with a goblet for her wand of enchantment. Another representative of Tumwater industry was by Miss Johnson, who by a display of the various brands demon strated the resources of the Olympia Flouring Mill. Hall & Duckering's hardware estab lishment was personified by Miss Ber tha Hall, who showed how many unu sual articles for decoration peculiar to this trade may be used for personal adornment. Like the desert course to the repast comes the comely, graceful, modest representative of the STANDARD, Miss Esther Callow. Without any dispar agement of the brilliant galaxy of beauty, we maintain that she, with the glorious Stars aud Stripes, led all others in the exemplification of the highest virtues of patriotism and principle.

CORONER'S VERDICT On a Body Found Near Velm Sta tion, Oct. 3lat. STATE OF WASHINGTON, ) Thurston County. J ss " We, the undersigned, being the in dividual jurors composing a jury duly impanelled and sworn to inquire into the circumstances attending the death of a certain unknown person, do find from the evidence brought before lis anil from our inspection of the body and all surrounding circumstances that: the said person, a man to us un known, came to his death about 10 p. M. on the night of October 30, 1897; that the place of his death was a point on the Northern Pacific Railway track on Yelm prairie, about one-half mile south of Yelm station; that he came to his death, in our opinion, by falling from a moving southbound train; that the body had been cut in two by the wheels of the train ; that the lower half of the body was found between the rails and that the upper half of the trunk was found between the ties outside the rail on the west side of the track; that the age of said unknown man was ahout twenty three ; that his clothing consisted of a cheap, well-worn dark coat and black trousers, light woolen socks, light woolen and blue Denim over shirts, light coin-toed shoes and black-felt hat; that there were found on the body no funds, no papers and no prop erty of any kind that would afford any clue to identify the body other than a cream-white silkhenderchief contain ing in one corner the embroidered monogram F. C., as near as could be made out; that one of the pockets contained n steel set-punch and a dark silk striped cay; that the said body had no mark upon it, tattooing or otherwise, by which the name of the deceased could be known; that the said silk cap contained on the in side of the peak the trade-mark of the U. 8. Store, Tacoma, Wash.; that the aaid young man, unknown, was of dark complexion, dark hoir and dark hazel eyes; that he was clean shaved; that his height was about 5 feet 9 inches and his weight about 140 pounds. Dated Oct. 31, 1897. J. A. MCKENZIF., Foreman. P. B. VAN TRUMP, J. B. PRICE, J. L. MOSMAN, H. E. SNOOK. JOHN OLSON, Coroner's jury. It has since been learned that the name of the unfortunate young man was Joseph Gorman, of Tncoma, a boilermaker by trade, and that he leaves a distracted mother. The re mains were sent to Tacoma this morn ing for interment. AN EXHIBITION OF THE "MARBLE HEART. —One of our practicing physi cians, in making out the certificate required by law of deatli of a woman noted for her love of pets, filled in the blank of occupation of deceased with the words," None—kept dogs." What ever may have been the motive for the use of these heartless words, it is quite certain that if the milk of human kindness ever coursed through the veins of that cold-blooded sawbones, it leaves not the slightest trace of its presence. Can we wonder that the poet wrote " Alsst the rarity Of Christian charity," when such instances of thoughtless in difference to human endeavor are man ifested? It is safe to say that if admis sion to the house of many mansions beyond the grave should have to be passed upon by a finite judgment like that, so devoid of mercy, so callous to feeling, so devoid of the first impulses of charity, heaven would indeed be sparsely populated. WANTS TO BE TAKEN CARE OP. —A tramp who gives his name as Thomas J. King, last evening about six o'clock, deliberately destroyed Uncle Sam's letter box, corner of Thirteenth and Main streets, by smashing it with a rock. He then sought the Chief of Police and entered formal complaint against himself, saying he was desper ate and that he wanted to be taken care of by the proper authorities. In the absence of an U. 8. Commis sioner, the matter will come before Judge Ayer for at least temporary dis position of the matter. It is difficult to discover the proper means for pun ishment of such malefactors. The funeral Monday at Tacoma of Celia Hansen, the Indian woman who was killed by Charles Growuns on Saturday morning, was stopped by Puyallup Indians. They told the driver of the hearse so leave the body at a certain house, and come back for it next day for, as they intended hold ing a powwow over it. The Indians were intoxicated, so the driver left the body as directed. | The Ins and Outs of It 1 w ( ) ff\ , 3" ou £?* best wear out of a coat, best work must S:/ >I ave S one into it.

Domestic cider mills arc being bus ily utilized in turning out a beverage that will never go out of fashion. With a little painstaking, every fam ily can have an abundance of pure cider for the various uses of the culin ary department and a year's supply of the finest vinegar. This is a good deal better than to buy imported champagne made from our own ex ported cider, and the various grtMics of poisonous vinegar manufactured from sweetened water with a few ounces of acid thrown in to give the required sharpness. It is not stating a wild estimate to say that the apples which have been left to go to waste and destruction in the residence orchards of Olympia, this fall, would have liberally supplied the owners with cider and vinegar for home consumption besides leaving a large surplus for shipment to other less favored districts. Last year, ap ples were apples, as the saying goes, while home made cider and vinegar were a good deal more costly than many of the lighter wines. But we never miss the water till the well .runs dry, and so the improvidence and waste goes on from year to year. . Nona But Ayer'a nt the World's Fair There was only one blood purifier admitted at the World's Fair, Chicago. It was Ayer's Sarsaparilla. All others were shut out because thev did not meet the requirements of the fair Com missioners. Ayer's Sarsaparilla only was accorded the honor of an entry, he cause it did meet those require ments. In other words, the World's Fair authorities found Ayer's Sarsapar illa to be an honest, scientific prepara tion, the only one of its kind they could endorse. That was good testiiftony that Ayer's Sarsaparilla is the best blood purifier made. Furthermore, hundreds of physicians say it is, thousands of druggists say it is, millions of patients say it is.
