EXCITING RUN DOWN THE UFPE3 SNAKE RIVER. Stoat Dangerous Stretch of Inland In thn West—Rapids, Falls Jvnsl Whirlpools-, In Continuous Succession. The Tctroro of Box Canyon. A steamboat trip which for excitement, peril and display of skill has seldom if eter been equaled in tho history of river navigation in the United States has just beon concluded on tho upper Snake river. The Norrna, n small stern wheel boat, tuts made tho run from Huntington, Or., to Lewiston, Ma.,over about the worst stretch of inland water to bo found in the west. Early on tho morning of May 10 the Norina cost off her linos from the Huntington lauding, and in command 'of Captain W. P. Gray, with Captain A.AV. Gray as pilot and Charles Jennings as engineer, started on a trip tho liko of which will in all probability never bo undertaken again. For the first fow miles tho I'lvpr .was smooth, but small rnpids soon began to appear, and bcforo the steamer had gone six miles she ran on a submerged rook and tore her rudder off. It was necessary to beach her, and two clays were, consumed in making repairs. With n fresh supply of cord wood tho voyngo was resumed through ;i barren country and a cranky current. At Brownlie ferry a stop had to bo jnjxle, as tho wire which holds tho ferryboat had to bo lowered in order to let tlw steamer pass over it. At daybreak the start was made. A run of three miles brought tho vessel to'the mouth of Wild Horse creek, and as she rounded a bend Wild Jlorso rapids camo in sight. The river at this point narrows to obbut two-fifths of its former width, tho fall is very rapid, and to mnko matters much worse the stream has three abrupt curves, its contour forming a letter Z. Tho Nornift shot into the rapids, and tho surging, twisting, foaming water washed over her clock. She missed the rocks with which tho stream abounds and was soon in clear water. Tho nest rough place was Lookout rapids. The river was narrow, but its course was tolerably straight, cud tho little craft shot through without trouble. Immediately below was Horseshoe bond, and tho peninsula itself within 1,200 feet, and tho peninsula thus formed stands 300 feet above the level of tho water. Rounding tho bend, the voyagers passed Eagle island, whore tho government survey ends, and ho who would navigate Snake river farther must depend entirely on his knowledge of swift waters. A fow niilcjS into tho unknown region, and Back point was passed, whore the river takes a drop of 0 feet in 100. A inilo or two farther, and tho frail boat entered, the •famous Bos canyon. The river from its entrance iu tho canyon for a distance of 20 miles is a succession of rapids and sharp bonds, jutting rocks and protruding bowlders, whore for miles at a stretch oven a small boat could not effect a lauding, and whoro tho current As so rapid that a steamer "backing hard" . still makes good headway. A landing was finally mado at Steamboat bar. Captain Gray went around tho hills, and, with tho .. aid of powerful glasses made a thorough inspection of Copper Creek falls, tho most •terrible part of tho whole wicked stretch of rapids, whirlpools and cataracts. On his return ho set tho crew at work, and the / fore and aft bulkhead was run in tho bilga of tho Wormu's bow. Tho bold forward of tho flreroom was filled with cord wood to resist tho shock when the steamer struck, and all hatches wero nailed down. Thou •the crew turned in on what, for all they knew, was their last night in this world. Captain Gray was thoroughly satisfied after an examination of tho falls that a boat of the Norma's dimensions could not bo taken over without striking tho bluff somewhere. Tho river runs through a channel about 120 feet wide. Largo bowl- ders lino tho Oregon shoro, and on tho Idaho side rises a steep cliff 50 feet high. An ugly reef 30 foot across and 8 foot under water stands at the brink of tho fall or run, about one-third of tho way across from tho Oregon side. It makes a broken drop and throws tho current against tho cliffs on tho Idaho side. When tho captain told tho crow that it would bo necessary to strike this wall of rock, some uneasiness The 'frfcii isflo-fcti Lady Cuticle trsel Me* Ihfluence With the Snltan of tntikefr, Lady Curfie, bettor known by hot pen name of Violet Fane, has quickly made her mark ftS British embassadress at Constantinople, and, from all I hoar, there has faeter, since tho accession of tho present sultan, boon a foreign lady who stood so high in the good graces of his Ottoman majesty, who loses no occasion of paying her marked attention. Her influence at his court she used in n very efficacious manner tho other day. A Dr. Pachayan, an Armenian Christian, had boon convicted of some treasonable practice or other at Constantinople and been sentenced to death. A few days prior to the date fixed for the execution of tho sentence bis fiancee called upon Lady Gurrie, .threw herself at. the embassadress' knees, and made a passionate appeal to her excellency to help her to secure a commutation of tho doctor's sentence. Violet Fane, who is tho most warm hearted woman imaginable, as may be .gathered from tho pretty poems that she has published from time to time, was much moved and promised to do what she could atthoYildizkiosk. It happened that the noxt day was Friday, the day of tho Salamllk—that is, tho ceremony of tho sultan's going to prayers —and on his return from tho mosque, sec- ing Lady Ou.rrle and. her husband near the entrance of the palace, ho invited them to take refreshments with him in ouo of the pavilions of tho gardens. Lady Currio availed herself of tho opportunity to appeal to the clemency of the sultan in behalf of the condemned man. On learning that she was interested in his fate, ho informed her that her request would bo granted, and n few hours afterward one of his aids-decamp carried to tho embassy not merely a commutation of tho death sentence, which was all that she had ventured to ask for, but a free pardon for tho doctor. Since then tho Armenian population at Constantinople swears by Lady Currle, who has become in tho eyes of tho people one of tho most important personages of tho empire, since it was altogether unprecedented that a commander of tho faithful should thus publicly yield to tho charms of a foreign woman—aye, and of a grandmother at that, as Lady Currle has several children by her first marriage to Mr. Sln- gloton, who havo children of their own.— Marquise do Fontonoy in Now York Recorder.

FOE A POKEE_CONFEEENOE. The Herald Says a Congress of Experts Is Greatly Needed. The need of tho hour—a poker con gross! That is to say, a national conference of poker players, who shall pass upon all disputed points, decide all mooted questions, establish what is canonical and orthodox and reject what is more heresy and schism. Of no other game can it bo so truthfully said that its laws are in an absolutely chaotic condition. It ia fondly called the national game. At some time of his life every citizen of tho United States has played it, if not for gain, then for fun. A poker player traveling over tho American continent finds himself one of a vast brotherhood of follow players.' Yet every whore he has to learn and unlearn. Everywhere he .finds tho beautiful symmetry of the game marred by tho introduction of some objectionable feature or tho loss of some pleasing and necessary ones. An ecumenical council is, of course, impossible. But • The Herald is willing to step into the breach as a self constituted pope, with this proviso, that its decrees shall not be taken as infallible, ex cathedra utterances, but as obiter "dicta submitted to the faithful for acceptance or rejection, as they may elect. Perhaps with this example before them on ecumenical council —in other words, a national conference of pokor players—may bo a possibility of tho near future. This paper will simply present the problems, offer what seems to bo the best solution and await future developments along tho linos it has indicated. —New York Herald. It Wus u Wise Purchase.

A Dubuque special says: A farmer entered tho Golden Rule department store this afternoon and accidentally dropped some ashes from his pipe into v the lire- works. The 87,000 stock was consumed in a series of explosions which carried out the plate glass and startled the town. Tho clorks escaped unhurt. was manifested, but from what they had already passed their confidence in him was unlimited. A few minutes later the Norm a dropped into midstream, shot through a swift rapid that anywhere elso would be regarded as impassable, eamo out into comparatively clear water, and in another moment entered the draw of the falls, about 15 foot from the Idaho cliff. It was a moment of intense excitement. As she broke over tho falls her timbers creaked and groaned. When she took tho Qua! plunge, tho captain cried "Starboard," and with tho weight of himself and assistants at tho wheel tho spokes fairly flow around. The engines wore backed, and tho cliff was frowning over tho boat. She struck it with her starboard guard and seemed to hang for a moment, while the waves broko over her deck. Tho surf flying back from the cliff drenched tho men in the pilothouse. Then tho little boat bounded away to mid- ohanuol liko a handball. Tho engines were stopped, and the Norina drifted down tho river, with tho crew yelling liko demons, the happiest men iu two states, who had an experience that will last them a lifetime. Tho steamer's nosing was smashed for about two feet, and three deck beams were raised a few inches. Otherwise she did not suffer from her battering. Just below tho falls the boat stearfted through Hell canyon, a place about 300 feet in length, where tho overhanging cliffs seem to conio within a fow inches of meeting directly over the river and hundreds of feet above. During the next ten miles she sHot over four different rapids, whore tho water ran like a race horse. Then tho channel narrowed to 50 feet, and tho current stped along SO miles an hour. One place was encountered where the river ran straighter and swifter than a mill race for something like two miles, and in POY» Hjjng tho distance tho engines were not moved, noi 1 was tho pilot wheel touched. So tho Great Box canyon of tho Snake was passed, slit) the Noraia came into comparatively still water at what is known as the head of jiavigation on Snake riyer, At noon on Mtty 8? sho steamed up to the Wharf at Lowiston and moored beside the big whea.tbo»ts of the lower river, This remarkable journey occupied, eight days, of which 88 hours was the actual traveling time. The distance from Huntington down to the "head of navigation" is about 180 miles.— -St, Louis fitobe-pouioorat. Cyclone Cellars For Iowa Schools. Superintendent of Public Instruction Sabin, in answer to questions, holds that school boards are authorized by law to build cyclone collars and to use tho contingent funds of tho district in so doing. Ho places the cyclone collar under the gen- oral head of school oxponscs, Tho law for it or not, it is better to have a place of refuge and not wont it than to want it when tho clouds are raging and not have it. It doesn't invite a conflagration to insure one's home. One is in no more danger of being killed with an accident policy in his pocket than he is without it. Money might be spent for better purposes than cyclone collars. Still pupils and teachers who havo had an experience with cyclones cannot bo induced to think so.—Davenport (Ia.)

Moore and Lewis Nelon were called on with shot guns, tin jans, bolls, etc., for the "treats" Mr. ind Mrs. Nelson had not yet moved into ,helr house as expected and not coming 'orth at tho sound of the invading forces some reckless parties proceeded to pound tho side of the house with a string of bells, batter the door with a club and otherwise disfiguring tho house In an outrageous nanner. Neither did they desist until some of the neighbors informed them that the house svas not yet occupied. It is an old fossilled custom that in most civil- d communities is not tolerated and should not be anywhere. People do not generally have property to be made sport with and destroyed by a reckless mob. A Wee Steamer. Mr. H. B. Weaver, tho artist, who resides in Baltimore, has built a steam launch which he claims to be the smallest in tho world. The length of the launch is 9 feet, and it will carry three persons.

The engine, which Mr. Weaver says has been declared the smallest marine engine in tho world, is an exact pattern of thoso used on large steamers and weighs 66 pounds. The water and air pumps are concealed from view. Tho complete weight of the launch with all equipments is 176 pounds.— Baltimore American. __ lusaiiitj Somewhere.
