TWO LARGE AUDIENCES HEAR
OPERA FRIDAY AND 8ATUR
V DAY NIGHTS.
Not only the most pretentious but
the best peiformance ever given in
Wallowa county is the unanimous
opinion of all who saw the opera
Olivette. Two large audiences re
warded the splendid work of the
singers, i and the enterprise of the
opera house management. On Sat
urday night nearly every seat wa;
taken, many who were present Frl
day night coming again because
.they enjoyed the performance sc
much.- A large number of Joseph
Lostlne, Alder Slope and Prairie
Creek residents attended.
. Not only was the singing fine oi
both principals and chorus, but the
acting was of high class, fully equal
to professional performances in large
cities. Credit is due to both Prof
Boyer and the members of the
cast, one and all, for there was not
a flaw to be found.
The beautiful voices of Miss
Browning and Mr. Pratt Justified
the largest measure of local pride
Miss Bryan was a charming Olivette
while Mr. Streeter simply outdid
himself as Captain De Merrlmac
Mr. Boyer was a most satisfactory
Captain of the Guards, and Mr. Mil
ler was a very amusing Coqulollcot,
foster brother and henchman of the
Due Des If s (Mr. Pratt). Dr. Ault
sang well the part of Marvejol, Sen
eschal to the Countess of Rousillon
(Miss Browning). Miss Corklns as
Veloutine and Mr; Browning as Lar
Union deserve praise while Misa De
Pue was very clever as the cabin
boy. The courtiers and nobles, wed
ding guests, sailors and pages form
ed a splendid chorus that had its
full share in the success. The per
sonnel included Mesdames French
Burnaugh, Clark, Miller and Vest;
Misses Zurcher, Olmsted, Makln,
Eva Makln, Weaver, Stubblefleld,
Carter, Wilson, Roberts and Marie
ownlngrTWessrs. Znr'cher, Fleenei

were excelently played by Miss Mag
gie Roup. The staging and setting oi
the piece was good and the costumes
the best that Chicago could furnish

barely cove the expenses, which

EVENTS OF NORTH
JOYS AND WOES OF ACCOMPANY
ING THE MIGHTY HOSPITA
(Continued from last week.)
This thing of a poor and lowly
editor riding around over the coun
try and especially partaking of the
kindly hospitality of the people, in
company with a high and mighty
county commissioner haa an awfully
depressing, effect oa one's bump ol
self-esteem. We are content to play
second fiddle, the position nature and
our extreme modesty intend us tc
occupy, but to have oar Insignificance
rubbed in is going too far. We gave
Sam Lltch fair warning that
his misdeeds would be made public;
that we would tell how he moaopo
llzed the spot-light; how he insisted
on all the choicest tid bits for him
self and then would accuse us at the
next place we stopped of doing the
bulk of the eating; how he would
recklessly trot the horse3 down Troy
hill when we were on the down-side
and how careful he walked them
when HE was on the downside. All
this he did and much more, but we
forgave him the half of it when we
got through the splendid dinner at
Peter Ficker's. You will understand
why when we tell you that Petei
Flcker, the Troy postmaster, hasn't
any use for editors. Why we don'
know but we found it out last win
ter when we visited Mr. Ficker jus:
after Jack Kerns and Ben Weather
had stayed all night with him. He
pretends to think that editors sel
dom tell the truth, but Just wh;
Flcker objects to that Is not clear
unless it Is he objects to competi
tion. And Sam Lltch, aided ant
abetted by V. G. Locke, was re
sponsible for that grand dinner at
Ficker's, and a poor editor woulc
never have partaken of It If he hat
not been In distinguished company.
Everything considered, it waf

We stopped to see the fine, big new
barn Dale Estes is building and he
took us out into his peach orcharc'
where we could get a better view ol
his cornfield, and he didn't have tt

cious peaches, nor to fill our pockets
with them. Este3 sure has a nice
place along the Grande Ronde river
Just below Troy, and he raises every
thing the heart could desire frui
of all kinds, grape3, peaches, pears
apples, melons, apricots, even al
monds and walnuts. The latter an

rich for the ordinary stomach. A

Hood River and Wenatchee will be

Grouse sun. Now, except for home
use, the fruit Is hardly known. Mr
Boston, after supplying the family
wants, those of many neighbors and
filling Sam Lltch's hack, had from
1200 to 1500 pounds of the largest
and finest Elng cherries we evei
saw, left on his young trees. How1
