Editor Chronicle- Until recently your paper made a practice of . pub lishing the bills allowed by the county court at each sitting, but of lute I, with other taxpayers in the county, have been unable to find the list in your columns. Why this omission, when the law provides for their pub lication? The people of ; The Dalles have a right to know what bills are contract ed, aud 1, for one, but not the only one, think they should be published again. If there has been an change in the law, perhaps the county court will tell us about it. Otherwise, the people should insist on their publication. Taxpayer.

ODD FELLOWS WILL ERECT $10,000 BLOCK Excavation was commenced last FridMy for the erection of a three story brick block on the corner now occupied by the Paris Fair. P. M. Hull Lewis is the architect of the new building which will be 50x100 feet and cost $10,000. It is being built by the Odd Fellows. It will be of the slow burning, semi fire proof construction with s leoted common red brick front. The belt courses, corbels and lint 1 courses will be laid in red mortar. The exca vation will extend under the side walks which will have steel supports with concrete arches and will be of the latest approved type iu use in New York, Baltimore and other East ern cities. The first two floors will be built to conform to the needs of W. O. Ash & Co. for the Paris Fair, giving then room for greatly increased sto e Bpace iu their rapidly growing br.kintes The third floor will be devoted tt lodge rooms and ante rooms for the Odd Fellows aud other organizations that now meet in their present rooms lt is the intention to have the first two" floors ready for occupancy by Muy 1st, and an effort will be made to have this portion of the building completed as near that date as pos sible. While the building is in oourse of construction the business of the Paris i'u'r will be conducted in the brick part of the store which is now in use. xlie now store will be nttea ud who what is latest in nxiures ior dry goods stores, and everything made to conform to the needs of its pat rons. A Protracted Meeting. Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Cunning, Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Newby and Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Markha gave two valen tine w hist parties on the 15th and 16tb lust, at "High.and Home, " the resi dence of Mr. and Mrs. 1. J. Cunning. The rooms were nicely decorated witb Oregon grape, pendant hearts and a pair of swinging Cupids. Each gentleman presented the receiving hostess with au original vaientine In comic or sentimental rhyme which was drawn by a lady who became the gentleman's whist partner at a desig nated table. Appropriate to the occa sion ouly hearts were trump, aud af ter each deal the winners moved in different directions to other tables in regular order, the losers remaining at the same table, but taking the victor for partners, thus making an entire change at each hand. The excitement of the game was lost in the pleasure ol meeting and remeeting as partners or opponents, aud toe ntniott good feeling prevailed. A substantial lunch was served about 11 p. m., in which heart shaped sandwiches were conspicuous. Each guest was served apple salad iu a cup made out of a Bpitzenberg apple, which seemed to me a menial u-e of oue of Hood River's best products, but then my taste is perhaps pieman, rather than putrioiau. Coffee, cake aud nine apple sherlet completed the menu,-after which tne ladies read tne valentines they had received with the name of the authors, and nf course thi raised the merriment to over flowing. E. L. Smith almost blushed himself hands me when bis ardent lines were read. His valentine was peculiarly appropriate "l'armer Smith" being in the center of a gor geously colored and embossed repre sentation Gf garden products, sucn as pumpaius, cabbage, carrots, eto.,wlto one ot bis latest pictures, as it ap peared in the Oregon ian in abbreviat ed clothes, saying, "Ob, who will be my Valentine Dear Mrs. M, or N, or C? 1 really cannot, dare not choose. Oh, happy thought I'll take the three." But he looked very dignified when Mrs. Smith read that Mr. Kinnard wanted her for his "Tootsie.Wootsie." The reading of the valentines was attended with hilarious laughter, and developed the fact that Hood River has about forty unnamed poets, and the poets laureate will have to look to their laurels or Hood mver win win another prize. The prizes on the first evening were won by Mis. Mattie juarknam ano Mrs. Brock, aud the next night by Miss Clara Hlvtbe and Vtm. Nichols, and cousisled ot a choice bouquet of flowers and a nauiature world. Jt is hoped the pleasures of the evening will outlast the fragrance of the flow ers, or the memory of earth. xxx Death of Tilinon II. Smith. Tihcon H. Smith died Monday at his home near Tucker's Bridge from an illness affliction from which he had been a sufferer for nine years. Mr. Smith is survived by his widow and two sou , V. Hugh Smith and Frank O. Smith, and by a brother, Milton Smith, of Hood River, and a brother and two sisters who reside in Nebraska. In another month be would have been 62 years of age. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of 4. E. Bartmess and ser vices took place at the home of the deceased Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, being conducted by the Rev. W. A. Elkins, of the Valley Christian church. The Interment was at Oak Grove cemetery. TACOMA BOOMING AS WELL AS SEATTLE Tacoma, Wash., Feb. IS. Dear Gla cier: Leaving Hood River on Satur day's No 1., I Bud myself this Sunday evening a long way from Udell. 1 am here for a day or so to "watch laoo mn grow." In May, 1S89, ihen Taco ma was booming and when people were riding on tun of the street cars for want of space inside iu order to get home to dinner, I bought some property. Several years afterward 1 visited the city of destiny again to look op the property 1 bad purchased In lsifi), and then found people walk ing home. These were during the pa n icy days of the nineties. Today I return again and find real e tate ac tive. The fact is I came here to see for myself what means the recent mes sages received, each containing offers ou these lots. There is evidently something here, as well as at Seattle. In railroad circles two or three lail- roads are fighting for entrances from the south and exits from the east Into Tacoma, aud recently muoh property has cbauged bands at fabulous prloes, and the end is not yet. Koswell Shelley. New Engine for Mount Hood ltnail. A small logging engine was received by the Mount Hood Railroad company last week for use ou its road. The engine was bought from the Salt Luke and Ogdeu Railroad. It is light and can be used to greater advantage than toe heavy engines which the new road has bad in use. Until the track is ballasted the use of these heavy en gines will be discontinued. Talked About Washington. The usual Monday exercises were in charge of the 10th grade pupils this week.
