Dear Sir I have the
honor to inform you
that at a regular mootIng -
Ing of the Oregon Alpine club ,
held Tuesday evening , March
12 , you wcro unanimously elect
ed an honorary member.
Very rcEpcrofully ,
W. G. STEEL , Cor. Sec.
It is almost surporflous for mo to say
that I accept with pleasure , the honorary
membership thus conferred by the as
piring and deserving organization upon
otio of our most phenomenal literary de
The objects of the club , as I gather
from the constitution and by-laws en
closed with the notification , are , flrat to
utilize the largo , smooth mountains of
Washington for climbing purposes.
Also to moukoy with the flora and fauna
of that region.
I have accepted with ill-concealed
joy that I am , and may continue through
life to bo , an honorary member , there
fore , of the Oregon Alnine club. I
shall also take occasion at an early date
to accompany the club , by Tnoans of a
horse and wagon , to the summit of
Mount Hood or Mount Tacoma. Later
on I hope to become so robust that I can
walk. Once I could walk a great deal.
At ouo tiiuo I wont by this means quite
a distance ,

nnd side track along my route , using
great care to got off the track as the
trains wont by. In this way I saved
enough In one summer to enable me to

Bummer. Rut in later years wealth has
engendered a Iov of ease nnd a slight
tendency toward luxurious dishonesty
and re peso of manner , which at first

I now hail with much joy this oppor
tunity to climb a few of our moat rtobir-
able mountains. Which one shall WD
tackln first ? How are your glaciers
thl. spring ? Have you got a good noiseless -
loss glncicr with remains in it ? How
did the flora and fauna bland the winter ,
nnd will they be on hand this season
when \vo got ready to go ?
I notice alen by the preamble which

scsses unsurpassed advantages. " I will
cheerfully join you in this especially.
Certainly I have never radiated from a
city which pave bettor satisfaction than
Portland has. If I did not belicvo that ,
1 would not thus publicly so state , over
my own brief , but widespread signature.
Portland as a visitor's radiator is and
must ever remain unsurpassed.
You also aim to make the club n high
authority on mountains and their hab
its , mountains in their homo lives , half
hours with mountains , mountains as
bedfellows , together with suggestions
as to what to do for their cold foot and
throbbing brows , social habits of the
mountain and its hesitation in calling
upon Mahommed , although the moun
tain was there first , mountains as
parents , mountains as forefathers ,
mountains as mouso-breedors , etc. , etc. ,
ucl flnitum , as the papers put it.
All these objects coincide with my
views , and though I see that the club
has taken the precaution to give roe no
vote whntovor on these matters , I can
not bo prevented from entering heart
and soul into this glorious work. As
soon as the weather is suitable you will
BKE ME BTAKT VP MOUNT HOOD
with an alpenstock and a theatrical
trunk containing all that ono need pos
sibly want , and want to possibly need ,
on such a trip. I have already purchased
an alpenstock in Omaha. It belonged
to the cstato of a man who climbed
the golden stair , via the Mattorhorn ,
thrco years ago. The Alpenstock has
quito a lot of notches already cut in it ,
which gives mo a good start. Ho was
never recovered , it is said. Ho tried
to jump across a yawning chasm just
as it was in the act of yawning ana so
lacked about nine foot of getting across.
The following Ssoptomber this Alpen
stock was found by the verge of the
yawning chasm. Several hundred feet
below n vulture was seen eating the
lining from an old pocket-book. Still
farther down n venturesome chamois
hunter , with n rope tied around his
waist , discovered the marks of a man's
front teeth on the trees , as ho evidently
blazed his way along down while pass
ing hurriedly in a perpendicular direc
tion toward the bottom. Farther down
ho discovered a broken pelvis and the
mainspring of a Wntorhury watch ,
whinh had crawled out of the case and
entirely ( Iliad the chasm to a height of
nine and one-half font.
Tno man himself was dead ,
Ono thing I wanted to ask about the
club was this : Do honorary members
bring their dinners , or will some way
bo provided whereby they will uot have
to do BO ? I can bring some things to
eat with me if desired , but would pre
fer to do otherwise if not putting you
out. Wo live ' .roll at homo , and yet one
tires of the une food year in and year
out. Whatever you decide on in that
way will be satisfactory to me. Food
should bo , for such a trip , nutritious ,
well prepared , and oxpentiivo. i could
put it in the hind part of my wagon ,
along with my Alpenstock , if thought
I would bo glad to meet personally
the geologist , the mineralogist , the
ethnologist , thu arintholoi'Ut , the
ichthyologist , the botanist , the micro-
scopist , the entomologist and the conchologist -
chologist of tlm club. When not too
busy I would be glad to aid thorn as fur
as possible * in tliolr researches. I shall
take with mo on these tripi a large
scrap book containing
1'IIKSS NOTICES AND AUTUMN LEAVES.
I can read from this tome to
the club the kkid things said of me
by the American press , wherein It has
been statoil that I have culled , or that
I was scon on our streets , and other en
comiums which I can read to the club
as you ponflo to wlpo the perspiration
from thu brow of tbo mountain , or

to its summit. "
This harsh ruling will for some time :
yet prevent me from becoming an ac
tive member , though if you could relax
this rule BO as to let in a man who had

My idea would bo to join the club ,
first as an honorary member , then grad

stacks by means of my Alpenstock ,
until I became very athletic and strong ;
then climb a tall frappcd mountain ,
freezing both ears till they swelled up
on my return like a pair of baked
apples ; then I would go abroad in search
of the coy and prudish north polo.
Finding the polo , I would cut.ray name

with these picked men concealed about
my person , I would return , full of information

A young lady , a lovely woman and a
devoted wife , was a slave to the passion
of music. She had a beautiful voice ,
was always singing on uvailublo occa
sions , and was greatly admired for her
gift. The man in this ease was a tenor.
I never credited tenors with a heroic
place in the tragedies of Hfo , but in
this instance I suppose many men would
liken him to a hero. A hero of their
own classl Under the mystic influence
of a passionate duet from ono of the
Italian operas ono night the passions ol
those two people met. Had it not been
for the music the clanger was as far
away from the young wife as I am from
her at this moment. She went home
trembling and fahattored with the burden -

herself on her knees before her husband
told him all.

years a bitter rivalry existed between
the two houses , until the Scotch firm
decided to oond an ambassador to
America to make friendly overtures.
He was more than successful , and the
two great houses will bo united by mar

By the filing of a will in the probate
court in Cincinnati the other day , a ro
mance in the lives. of two young per
sons was revealed.
The will was that of Herman Rose ,
jr. , whose name became familiar to the
public a few years ago from the fact
that ho and his father wcro tried for
murder in the first degree.
They were both acquitted after long
and tedious trial.
After his acguital young Rose's health
failed , riis mother died and his father
got into trouble with another woman.
He quarreled with his son about the
property loft by tbo mother , and the
ban loft home.
He had been courting a Miss Rosa
Jonbcn , of Covington , Ky. , and when
ho had left his father's house and was
without a homo , his sweetheart's father
invited him to live with them.
Ho wont there about a year ago , and
