THE "DIRTY DOZEN" CLUB. Another Secret and KicluMve Organlza - Hon lu Our Midst. Of all the unique and exclusive clubs in the city, that known among a certain class of boys in The Dalles ns the "Dirty Dozen" club stands unrivalled in its class. They have an organization, with all the advantages of autonomy, a club bouse and set of rules, to promote their pleasure, apart from the f crutiuy of the world, and uninterrupted by parental solicitude or the vigilance of . the city and county officers. In. fact some of its members are' sons of some of these offi cials. Their quarters were unearthed yesterday in an unexpected way. While hunting for a roll of blankets, which was taken from a camper under the D. P. & A. N. Co.'s wharf, an offi cer entered a shabbily constructed shack on the bank of the elough below the China garden, and there were the blankets, spread out on the floor, and a couple of boys lying on. them smoking cigarettes. Others were about, talking, smoking and reading. They regarded his entrance as an intrusion, and for a moment it looked as if lib was going to be thrown into the slough, but the boys luckily did not use extreme measures, and the officer , was even permitted to leave with the blankets. . The club contains no bowling alley or gymnastic apparatus as yet, but the library is well stocked with such tales of adventure as "Ten Buckets of Blood, or a Boy's Revenge," "Dick Dead Eye, the Blind .Scout," "Nosebag Gallagher, the Terror of the Black Hills," "The Maiden's -Escape, or the Keyhole in the Door" etc. Here the bovs have chewed and smoked and told vulgar yarns, -and read hair breaath escapes, played cards and "gambled to . their un bounded delight for no one knows how long, but if their rendezvous is not broken up soon by the officers, the high water will do the work. Another foot or two and it will enter their den, and as ooys hate nothing bo bad as water, they will be compelled to abandon it. Whether they will remove and carry on their club. at another p.lace,, or. tempo rarily disband is not knnwn. The boys' clnb ia a firpt-clasa place to breed in cipient vice and it should be attended to. Nuptials In Mosier. " North rnp-Hunter At the residence of the bride's parents at Mosier on Mon day evening, May 4th, by Rev. W. C. Curtis, pastor of the Congregational church of this city, Mr, John L.

HE SAVED THE BOY. . John , Todd, or 'Tills Cltv, Rescues a Drowning Lad. Mr. John Todd, of this city, did a very heroic and courageous action a few days ago, saving a life at the old Graves ferry at the risk of his own. A youth whose name is-unfortunately not known at this time, started to cross the John Day river at the ferry operated by Mr. Clarno, in a row boat. A cable is stretched across the river and the young man attempted tc cross above the .cable. The boat drifted, down to it and was cap sized by it, throwing -its occupant out who grasped the cable. The current kept continually pressing him under, and he only tried to keep his hold. Todd was looking out the window of Clamo's at the time, dressed in a heavy overcoat and gum boots. He was bo affected at the eight he immediately ran to the res cue. He did not think to take 'off the overcoat or boots but boldly plunged into the water. Reaching him in a short time they were both plunged repeatedly be neath the surface, but assisting him as best be could to keep up, Todd towed bis charge to shore. His strength then de serted him, and he fell fainting on the bank. When he revived his. brain was temporarily affected, and when found he was crawling around over the sand on all fours. He has probably by this time fully recovered. This is one of the few instances ontside of fiction of a heroic deed, calling for su preme strength, fortitude and nerve worthy of a giant.
