—It may be of interest to our readers
to know that the original rooster, the
one that came to this country in the
May Flower, is now alive and in Pull
man. That this is a fact, is proven by
his habit of crowing at 11 o'clock every
night, having been unable to keep track
of the difference in time between his
native and adopted country while cross
ing the ocean, consequently, now crows
at the time to which he was accustomed
in his youth. We hope that he will soon
grace the table of one of our delinquent
subscribers, (if we ever have one) that
we may sleep in peace.

"We have not received a mail from Col

from Spokane Falls. We are told that
the mail has been discontinued betwoen
Colfax and Lewiston; also, that all mail
matter reaching Genesee by rail there
stops, and that no mail matter is now
carried between Moscow and Lewiston.
The Colfax, Moscow and Genesee papers
do not reach us. This is a great de
privation to many. We hope this defect
in mail service will soon be remodied.
The Eclipse.—On Tuesday afternoon,
Jan. 1, the people of the northwestern
part of the United States had an excel
lent opportunity to view an almost total
eclipse of the sun. The eclipse began
at lh. 4min. p. m., at a point in the Pa
cific ocean about 3,500 miles west of San
Diego, Cal., and about 2,500 miles west
of Vancouver's Island it began to be to
tal. The path of the total eclipse was
about sixty miles wide, and met the
western coast of the United States a fuw
miles north from San Francisco, at
about 2h. 20min., p. m. From this
point its path ran through the country
in a nearly northeasterly direction, and
terminated in Canada near the eastern
border of Lake Winnipeg, at 4h. lOmin.
p. m. The day was a clear one and our
citizens, armed with pieces of smoked
glass, gazed heavenward, at intervals,
until it disappeared.
At the Ball Masque.—Were you
there ? No t Then you missed the event of
the season. Beaney's hall was crowded,
even to the gallery. The merry maskers
had the floor to themselves except the
rear portion of the hall, which was re
served for spectators. Many were the
surmises as to who was who, and many
declared they recognized friends only to
find they were "away off" when the time
for unmasking arrived. It was almost
impossible for the Herald representative
to secure a complete list of all the char
acters and the names of those represent
ing them, but prominent among them
was Mrs. Buchanan, whose dress was
made of Heralds, the paper she charac
terized and which deserves special men
tion, as it was not only becoming, but
unique in design. J. C. Fullerton dis
guised as a dude coon; Thos. Allphin
was resplendent and attractive as Robin
Hood; night with her sable robes and
twinkling stars was well portrayed by
Mrs. Zender. Uucle Sam (Henry
Trobe), carried himself with dignity,
while Hill Norton, the highlander, sigh
ed in vain for the lass of his country and
the bagpipe that every Scotchman loves.
Fireman E. Hall was on deck and Police
man Kirkwood manfully did his duty
and caused much merriment, by running
the clowns and small boys into the cool
er. It was impossible to recognize jolly
Mark True in the garb of a priest, and
Mrs. Orville Stewart, as a gushing
school-girl was equally deceptive. Mrs.
Newton was charming as an Indian
princess, and Miss Crocket as Folly, made
merry music with the numerous little
bells that adorned her costume; Miss
Lewis as Topsy, danced with Clem Lloyd'
as Uncle Tom; Mother Goose and Eclipse
(Rose Tewalt, of Colton), were both
novel in design; George Bremer sus
tained well his character of Cowboy; H.
Anderson as an humble peasant kept
company with a Turk; the twin sisters
were Ruth Averill and Mrs. Leslie. Stew
art and Newton made good jockeys, and
Wm. Chambers was in full dress; Miss
Duncan queened it as "Belle of the
Ball." Ed Butcher, end E. M. Leslie,
portrayed the Siamese twins. Chas.
Olds, Dave Clark, Justin Baird, Henry
Grostein, Frank James, R. J. Skaife and
Joe Buggies all represented clowns.
! There were several whose names we were
unable to get. Dancing was indulged
in till four o'clock a. m.
Harry Reese spent the holidays
with his family, in Portland.
—Some of our go-to-bed-early citizens
were aroused from their midnight dreams
on Monday last, by a loud something, a
report that sounded like an explosion.
This terriffic noise, combined with a
shake of equal magnitude, caused Capt.
Phillips to ejaculate, "wha—what in
thunder is that." Another "boom" and
we all knew that the old year had expir
ed; been laid away on memory's shelf;
and a new year, in infant purity and
bright with promise, unto us was born.
The anvil was kept in active use for
some time, and at daybreak the small
toy with fire-crackers was on deck.
Calls were the order of the day and the
Herald received its quota.
Missouri Lodge.—This is the name
Dr. Webb has given his new residence.
It is situated on the heights west of
town and has, probably, the most desir
able location to be fonnd in Pullman.
It faces the east and looking down
Main-st a broad view of the business
portion of town is obtained. The design
is plain but roomy, with two bay-windows
aad two verandas to give a neat finish to
the front. On the first floor are double
parlors, a sitting-room, kitchen etc., with
dining-room in the center, all finished in
Oregon cedar, grained, and the walls
plastered and papered. The second story
is composed of sleeping apartments,
closets, and a fine library and billiard
hall, the latter directly over the dining
room. These rooms are finished similar
to the ones below. Rich walnut furni
ture and soft brussels carpet, adorn the
doctor's home. The foundation of the
house is of granite and the cellar made
of brick. When the doctor gets those
moon-flowers to growing, and the
gronnds laid off in terraces, the place
will be "a thing of beauty and a joy
He Meant Well.—Andrew Clyde, of
Palouse City, and Miss Annie Davitt of
the same place, met, per preconcerted
agreement, at Colfax.whither they had
gone separately to allay all suspicion on
the part of their friends, and on the first
day of the new year declared their will
ingness to trot together in matrimonial
harness, come weal or woe. They then
took the first train for Pullman and were
quartered at the Palace Hotel. Mean
while, Dr. MoGee, also of Palouse City,
who was here on professional business,
called at the same hotel to secure accom
modations for the night. Looking over
the register he discovered the name of
Mr. Clyde and his joy at finding an old
friend was so great that he at once pro
posed to keep him company. Upon be
ing informed that he already had a room
mate, he insisted that it nyide no differ
ence as he was an intimate friend. His
informant suggested thatjpossibly his
wife might object. "His wife!" ex
claimed the M. D. as he grew cold all over.
And then he " caught on " and concluded
he wouldn't disturb Mr. Clyde, who,
doubtless, was already sleeping the sleep
of the—married. The Herald extends
its congratulations and well wishes.

The O. R. Jfc N. Co. appears to be hav
ing a run of bad luck lately in the way
of accidents. The smash up at Colfax,
in which one man received fatal injuries,
occurred about six weeks ago, and on
Sunday last a heavy freight train became
unmanageable on the Alto Hill, south of
the river, resulting in the wrecking of
ten loaded ears and the killing of a
brakeman named Logan. Another brake
man had a leg broken. It is reported
that Logan was thrown against the tele
graph wire with such force that he was
cut nearly in two, after which a car roll
ed over him, horribly mutilating his
body. The train is said to have been in
the hands of an entirely new crew, who
were not familiar with the heavy grade
on the hill, hence they lost control of it.
