Vancouver Independent. OFFICIAL FA PER OF CITT AltD COUNT!. Vancouver, Clarke County, Waahlnu ton Territory. Hnnilw:itiir.> Many people laugh at what is called "gvaptomaney," or the art of judging characters by handwriting; and yet all acknowledge that handwriting does in dicate something. Every oue allows a difference between a man and a woman s hand, wo hear people speak of a vulgar hand, a gentlemanly hand, n clerkly hand, etc. "1 li.nl once," said Archbish op VVhatoly, "a remarkable proof thai handwriting is sometimes, at least, an index to character. I had a pupil at Oxford whom I liked in mosj resi>ccta greatly; there was but one thing aboul him which seriously dissatisfied me, and thai, as I often told him, "an his hand writing; it was no! had writing, but it had a mean shuffling character in it which always inspired mo with a feeling of suspicion. While he remained at Oxford I saw nothing to justify thissus picion; but a transaction in which he was afterward engaged, a...

A Tale With a Moral. BY OIBBIES. Jimmy wns always an eccentric indi vidual and extremely difficult to fathom. Being deprived in early life of his father, and not associating to any extent with the boys of his village, he was left to grow up "to manhood nnd its respon sibilities with little more than his own promptings, anil in this way he formed his own idea of things in "general and acquired rather odd notions as to right and wrong. He was one of tlsose quiet, unobtrusive, distant beings who pursue the silent tenor of their way regardless of all precedents; yet he was not at all stubborn, but, on the other hand, of a yielding d isposition—pusillanimous, yet plucky when cornered; and, if worsted in battle, he would the next moment trent his assailant as if he had received an honor at his hands. It had been Jimmy's lot to learn the art of printing, and while at this busi ness he received the cognomnn of " The Cast-iron Man," from his ability to work almost day and night without aft e...

Tie Careful Mother and the Model Boy. The two didn't belong to each other, and this very good boy may have been a little too smart and saucy. Little Mary was prettily dressed, and standing in front of the house waiting for her mother to go out to ride. A tidy boy, dressed in coarse clothes, was passing, when the little girl said: "Come here, boy, and shake hands wi' me. I dot a boy dns' like you, named Josy." The boy laughed, snook hands with her, and said: " Iv'o got a little girl just like you, only she hasn't any little cloak with fur on it." Here a lady came out of the door and said: " Mary, you must not talk with bad boys on the street. I hope yon haven't taken anything from her? (Jo right along, and never atop here again, boy!" That evening the lady was called down to speak to a boy in the hall. He was .very neatly dressed, and stood with his cap in his hand. It was the enemy of the morning. " I came to tell yon that lam not a bad boy," he said. " I go to Sunday school, and he...

independent. LOCAL Model Far HERS.—Last Saturday we visited the home of the Christ Bro thers, two of the industrious and well to-do German citizens of this county, I who live on their farms, four miles northeast of this place. They can well be cited as worthy examples of thrill and industry. Their farm consists of 320 acres, all of which was originally covered with brush and timber. A large tract of this consists of bottom land, which lias been cleared, ditched and brought under a fine state of culti vation. This land, like all the bottom lands in this county, is of the fust qual ity, producing excellent crops. The Christ Brothers have a large two-story house, neatly finished, which would he pronounced a first class farm bouse in any country. Besides this they have commodious barns, and other out-build ings, a borle power for sawing wood, grinding feed, etc., and the whole farm under fence. They went, on the land poor, but are now abundantly able to live without work on the interest...

Business is Business. In tlie last issue of this paper we copy an article entitled as above, taken from an exchange, a great part uf which we endorse and recommend to the consid eration of our readers. We do not agree, however, with the writer of that article when he says that the newspa per "has the same right to work for a person engaged in an objectionable call ing, ns< tbe merchant has ; to sell him goods." The high-toned newspaper is not only supposed to be, but is, to a great extent, tbe moulder of public sen timent, and as such, should be held strictly accountable for the manner in which tlmt duty is discharged. Hut the remark that "it is about time tint! people settled down in ibe common sense idea that newspaper publishing is a business, and not a mere enterprise for the fun of the thing," etc., is, to say the least, timely spoken.

Tho Froien Ship. One serene evening in the middle of August. 1775, Captain Warren, the mas ter of tho Greenland, whale ship, found himself becalmed among n numlior of icebergs, in about seventy-seven de grees of north latitude. On one side, and within n mile of his vessel, these were of immense bight and closely wedged together, and a succession of snow covered peaks appeared behind each other as far as the eve could reach, showing that the ocenn was completely blocked up In that quarter, and flint it had probably been so for a long period of time. Captain Warren did not feel sltogethersatisfied with his situation; but, there being no wind, he could not move either one wuy or 'tin? other, and he therefore kept a strict watch, know ing that he would be safe as long ns the icebergs continued in their respective places. About midnight the wind rose to a gale, accompanied by a thick shower of snow, while a succession of tremen dous thundering, grinding nnd crash ing noises gave fearful ...

She was wild with grief, and with dis consolate sobs and cries called frantia* ally upon the prophet to give back her little one to life. The Buddha gazed on her long, and, with that tender sym pathy which drew all hearts to him, re plied: "Go,my daughter, bring mo a mustard seed from a house into which death has never entered, and I will do as thou hast bidden." The woman took np the dead child and began her search. , She went from house to house, saying, *" Give me a mustard seed, kind folks, a mustard seed for the prophet to revive my child." And they gave her what she desired. And when she hsd taken it she inqnired : "They are all gathered around tho hearth here, father, mother, and the children : is it not so ? They are sound, in health's bloom ?" But the people would shake their heads mourn fully. And, far as she wandered, through town nnd village, in the crowd ed thoroughfare and by the ...
