What Happened. \ very respectable Kangaroo Died week before last in Timbuctoo; V remarkable accident happened to him; He WSS hung bead down from a banian limb. The Royal Lion made proclamation Kor a day of fasting and lamentation, Which led to a curious demonstration: The elephant acted as if he w ere ditink le stood on his head, he Irod OU his trunk, In over-sensll ive she-Got ithi Declared that tbe shock would surely kill her; A frisky, guy and frolicsome Ape Tied up bis tail With a yard of crape; The Donkey wiped bis eyes with bis cars; The Crocodile ihed a bucket of tears. The Rhinoceros gored a young Giraffe Who had the very bad taste to laugh. The Hippopotamus puffed and blew . To show his respect for the Kangaroo; Viui .1 sad but indignant Chlmpansee Unawed all the bark from the banyan-tree. —S.. Xicholat. Hares aud Batter Eggs.

Wit and Humor. An old settler: A piece of codfish. POCKETBOOKS are worn shorter thia season. Heading makes a full man, and so doe- w hi.-ky. People who are all the time cutting up: Hub hers. The dinners given by Congressmen are known as gamier parties. Now that short skirts are coming; into fashion what will the ladies carry in their bauds? It seems a paradox that the result of a crooked still should be a whisky straight. Unless a man can plait a hull-whip he can't get a situation as district school teacher in Texas. BTKONG doses of advertising should be administered to business that looks bil ious about this time of year. THERE is something noble about a gout all hoarders might imitate. He is not particular what he feeds upon. "Marriage? Poohl don't men-shun it I" exclaimed tho maiden aim I. "In deed tbey don't," replied her lovely niece. YOUNG women never marry old men for money—they yearn for a chance to trade < If their old clothes to the peddler. To call a man an ass is a re...

WHY BBBATBBT 43T8 BEST? ™• see aome envious mortals object to the Chicago A North-Wsstkrn Railway being called the greatest and best line in tlie country. W hat means greatest! Is it more length of line, miles operated and Ims iness transported! What means beet! Everyone knows the reply. That this lino t is greatest, S few facts will demonstrate:— , It operates nearly twenty one hundred miles ! of road (2,078 to be exact,) and reaches nearly every important point in Northern Illinois, in Wisconsin, in Northern Michi gan, in lowa, in Minnesota, and inns many lines into Dakota. W hat other 'tne begins to traverse so many States'. None Not oue. A road 500 nules in length is a long one. A thousand miles makes a great line, W hat, then, should be said of one 2,100 miles long': Just think of it if it was laid eastward from New York it would peach more than | two-thirds of the way across the Atlantic Ocean, or from the pine clad hills of Maine to the sunny shores of tin Oulf of Mexico.

Glimpses of Lincoln. So much has been written about Lin coln's private life and personal habits, that it seems unnecessary now to add more than a wold. He was simple in all Ids tastes; liked old songs and old poetry, lie was always neatly, out not Qnically dressed, lie disliked gloves, and once I saw him extract seven or eight pairs of gloves from an overcoat pocket, where they had accumulated after having been furnished him by Mrs. Lincoln. Usually, he drank tea and coffee at the table, but he preferred milk, or cold water. Wine was never en the table at the White House, except when visitors, other than familiar friends, were present. The President's glass was always tilled, anil he Usually touched it to his lips. Sometimes he drank a lew swallows, hut never a whole glass, probably. He was cordial and af fable, and his simple-hearted manners made a strong impression upon those who met him for the first time. I have know n impressionable women, touched by his sad face and his gentle...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1878. Trouble Ahead. Two weeks ago the LaGran.de Gazette gloated over the fact that three Indi ans were found hanging to a tree by the wayside. Again, a Mr. S. H. Per shin, a duputy U. 8. surveyor, who is well known to be a reliable gentleman, reports from Umatilla, where be is now on duty, that a number of ruthless out rages have been committed near there recently upon Indians by white men. Several have been murdered in a most barbarous manner for no cause and un der no pretext of justice, save the gen eral prejudice against their race. If an Indian chances to get beyond the pro tection of the agency authorities, or beyond the boundaries of the agencies, he is almost certain to be shot down. No quarter is shown and no care is taken to distinguish between good and the bad. It is evident from these reports, which are no doubt facts, that the white men of Eastern Oregon are following a course that is sure to lead to serious trouble with th...

A Woman's Choice. "I wisli I knew what to do," said Kate Warfleld, sitting on a knoll iv tho cool, shadowy orchard, nn a warm, sunny afternoon. She was in a quandary; she had two lovers, and she wondered which it was best to choose. John (lainsford was young and had a life full of promise and great possibilities before him. Hut he was pour. Kate Warfleld knew that he loved her, as a strong man can love, but could she, used to luxuries of life, give up that which seemed necessary to her comfort and many a poor man? Philip Lelth was old and rich, and he, in this letter which she had just been reading, made her the offer of bis heart —supposing such an organ to bo iv ex istence —ami hand, lie could give her tho things she longed for, the glitter and show she coveted. Shu heard some one whistling down the road, and, looking in that direction, saw John coming. Something seemed to tell bur that she must decide be tween her lovers now, and In a swift way she looked the ease over. On oue si...

Terrorism in l.oinsiuim. [Chicago Special, uth Nov.] The Tribune* New Orleans special confirms the report from thai city sent you last week, and says the result of the election is not complimentary to Governor Nicholas, who has often as sured the country that colored voters should receive ample protection. There are quite as many political refugees in New Orleans, seemingly, from the country parishes, as in the campaign of IJSTti. They report themselves now, as then, driven from their homes be cause of their political affiliations. Their affidavits have been taken for probable use in the near future, and show up badly enough; those from Concordia and Tensas parishes in par ticular. The parish ot Concordia has a registered vote of 2,600, against '27~> for the whites. Affidavits show that the whites organized into militia com panies, and the blacks were completely terrorised, A show ing is made of something like fifty blacks as murdered within the three weeks immediately preceding ...

Like wave* that wore a wreath of foam The darker that the waters grew, Flow reund my solitary home At evening, when the stars are few.

Mexico. -The Great Popocatepetl. Another of Mexico's wonders is the lofty volcano that lifts its snow-clad peak 19,000 feet into the cold air. To pronounce the Indian name of this grand old giant, one must take breath, before starting — Popocatepetl, which, in our simple English, means "the smoking, flaming mountain." I have stood on the loftiest peak of this moun tain, and looked down upon the City of Mexico, embedded amidst its silvery lakes, on one side, upon Puebla on another, and upon the distant Orizaba on a third, through an atmosphere so rare that the blood oozed from our ears, our noses, and even from the eyes of some of our party. At times, the clouds arc way below you, and at others they envelop you as in an im penetrable veil, and again not a cloud may be seen, only an immense dome over-head—the most impressive idea of boundless space 1 have ever seen. 1 have been down the crater of this won derful volcano—a thousand feet deep, and fifteen hundred feet wide; amidst never...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, IS7S. The citizens of Yakima are giving the cattle thieves the grand bounce. There is a set of men up there who live by plunder, and a vigilance com mittee carrying a rope. Under this process several persons have made tracks for more healthy localities.

giving them congenial employment under the government. It being a matter of experience that the Indians in our service, almost with out exception, are faithful iv the performance of duties assigned to them, such an organiza tion would materially aid the army iv the ac complishment of a task for which its numer ical strength is sometimes found insufficient. But while the employment of a force for the pieafentiou or repression of Indian troubles is of occasional necessity, and that wise prepar ations should be made to that end, greater re liance must be placed ou humane aud civiliz ing agencies for the ultimate solution of what ia called THE "INDIAN PROBLEM." It may be very difficult, and require much patient etiort, to curb the unruly spirit of the savage Indian to the restraints of civilized life; but experience shuws that it is not impossible. Many of the tribes who are now quiet and or derly and self-supporting were once as savage as any that at present roam the plains or ou the m...

Russia now distinctly tolls Turkey that while she will withdraw her forces from certain places in conform ity with the Berlin treaty, she will nevertheless avail herself of the right not relinquished by that treaty to hold Adrianople ami Thrace until Turkey is ready to accept Russia's filial terms.
