All Indian JtlfgleT, European nnd American snagieians Perform many surprising t.-iots, but an ndian juggler is their superior, no, at least, the following narrative from an English magazine would seem to indi cate: When lie entered the room ho spread a white cloth upon the floor and sat down upon it With bis back to the wall, tho door of the ro »m being on his right hand. His spectators were disposed in the following fashion: Mr. Smyth sat on a chair nearly in the middle of the room, 1 was silting on a sofa near the door, tho Pareee merohaut stood in the doorway about, arm's length from me. The servants stood about iv groups, the largest group being between the door and the conjurer. As soon as he had settled himself he turned to the Parses and asked for the loan of a rupee. The peddler at first demurred a little, but, on being guar anteed against loss, he produced the coin, lie was going to put it into the conjurer's hand, but the bitter refused and told tho Parsee to hand it to Mr...

VANCOT VKR INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JANUARY 9. KS79. We oppose the construction of the N. P. Railroad down tlu> Columbia river, on either bank. That is neither its shortest nor most natural route; ami we can only look upon those who favor such locations as enemies to the future prosperity of our own city Tttconut Ut r<ibl. Utteranoes similar to the above, coming often from the papers on tho Sound, do much to create division in this Territory, ami cause all localities to pull one against another. The narrow line of argument used above would go to show that its author is not capable of realizing the tact that it' the X. P. railroad was completed into the Territory to tmy town in it the benefits would accrue to the whole Territory; and the argument looks foolish when we consider the fact thai if that railroad should come down the north side of the Columbia Tacoma would still be tho terminous. The Sound people play the part of the dog in the manger. if the railroad cannot bo built d...

Fesdis? Childreu. Children, who, while growing, Burnt form more tissue than they waste, con sume more food in proportion to thuir weight, aud possess more active diges tionsthan adults. They should have their meals with shorter intervals, aud cure should be takeu to avoid all in fluences that may disturb digestion. Prominent among these is a detiuisnoy of clothing. The human body, like any other thing of greater warmth than the surrounding uir, has a constant tendency to part with its excess of heat by radiation, and to check this cooling process we invelop ourselves iv non conducting fabrics. It stands to reason ti nt the greater the surface exposed the more rapidly will radiation occur; and yet we frequently sco children with chest, arms, ami legs bared by fashion in tbe coldest weather, without regard to the genera] depression of temperature, which must also involve that of the digestive organs. The diet of children should lis regu lated by a consideration of their func tional ca...

The Story of the Centaurs. The fable of the Centaurs is a fable ' of the highlands. Their haunts wore among the fastnesses of the Thessalian ; and Arcadian mountains. Arcadia, > how ever, was not their earliest home, j their earliest homo wuaThessaly, where they ranged tbe forests of Mount Pelion, ami from thence as far as Oi-sa and the gorge of Tempo, along the great eastern ridge which shuls out tho plain of tho Enipens from the sea. That inland plain was from time imme morial the great horse-breeding dis trict of the Greek world, and it was natural that, together with many an other sacred and heroic legend ■ f the | race, this legend of tho man-horse should spring up among tho mountains which fenced it round about. Tho prodigious nature of the creatures was accounted for by the prodigious cir cumstances of their birth. They were the children or grandchildren of the murderer Izion, who, when the Gods had granted him purification, incor rigibly repaid their clemency by seek ing ...

How to Keep a Piano. Tbe piano in constructed almost ex clusively of various kinds of woods and metuls; cloth, skin, and folt being used in the mechanical porti n. For this reason atmospheric changes have a great effect on tho quality nnd dura bility of tho instrument, and it is nec essary to protect it from all external in fluences which might affect tbo ma terials of which it is composed. It must bo shaded from tho sun, kept out of a draught, and, above all, guarded against sudden changes of temperature. This latter is n most frequent cause of tbo piano getting out of tuno, ami tho instrument should bo kept in a temper ature not lower than lifty-four degrees and uot higher than eighty-six degrees Farbenheit. When too cold, tho wood, cloth and skin swell, and tho mochan ism works badly; when too warm, these materials shrink and cause clinking, .squeaking, and other disagreeable sounds. Moisture is tho greatest ene my of tbe piano, and it cannot be too carefully guarded against. In ...
