VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter- ritory. MY »OTIIKR AT THE UATE. Oh! there is many a silent picture On memory's silent wall; There's many a cherished image That I tenderly recall. The sweet home of my childhood, With its singing brooks and biids; The friends \rlio grew beside me. With their loving looks and words. The ilowers that decked the wildwood, The roses fresh and sweet. The bluebells and the daisies That blossomed at my feet- All, all are very precious,. And often come to mt. Like the breezes from a better land, Beyond life's troubled sea. But th« sweetest, denrest picture That memory can create Is the memory of my mother, My mother at the gate. Ready Money. So you are going to be married, Kate ! ' Well, I hope you have made a wise ! choice." "0 yes, uncle," I replied lightly; l 'l know I have. Henry is to make ine ; perfectly happy." "What lias he got 1" was the next pleasant observation that fell from 1 Uncl...

The Editors of the Future. Considering the scope of the newspa per of the future, the speaker was of the opinion that not a greater quantity of news must be printed, but sore news in the same space, that is, the reader will require the editor to sift, digest and put the news in the fewest possible words. It was a pleasant conceit of Henry Waterman's that, if Shakespeare were living now, he would be an editor. The fancy might have fallen better upon a contemporary of Shakespeare's — the greatest, wisest, meanest of mankind, who anticipated the modern newspaper, in taking all knowledge to be his province. But newspapers are many and perpetual. Shakespeares and Bacons come only once in the centuries. Yet of this we may be sure. The field for ad vantages through enterprise in the mere getting of news is about exhausted. The great newspapers can now all command substantially the same facilities. Gen erally speaking, the news that one gets another can get, if it wishes. Recurring, then, t...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 24, IS/9. Mr. Orange Jacobs, who the Puget Sound papers say had the honor of representing Seattle at Washington for two years, has been elected Mayor of Seattle. A new census recently taken in Klickitat county gives that county a population of about 3,000 people, a considerable increase over the last one. It is a growing county. There has been many rumors dur ing the week of fighting between the Umatilla and Piute Indians, but there is nothing in it except a scared black smith at Pendleton whose imagina tion made a fuss. The San Francisco Commercial Her ald says there does not seem to be any demand whatever for hops, and prices continue low and nominal, say 3to 5 cents for old and new. There is virtually no market. It seems that all efforts to prevent the spread of the yellow fever in the south have proved fruitless, and that section is again doomed to death and disaster until another winter sets in. Preventives seem to fail entirely. The Northe...

Turning the Tables. "Now what a pleasant evening we can have all alone!" said little Airs. Grey, dropping the crimson curtains in the cozy sitting room and turning to her husband as she spoke. "But I would like to go to the opera 1" she added, her dimpled face lengthening a little. "You have promised, you know, Fred, but I suppose you are tired." "Yes," yawned her drowsy spouse, from his jwst on the sofa, where, with heels erect after the fashion of the masculine world in general, intent on physical and mental comfort, he lay smoking. "But never mind," finished Bosa, con solingly; "we can go another time, and I will read to you." And she drew nearer the shaded light on the center table and picked up a book. "Hark ! there is the door bell." And she rose to her feet. "Stay, I will answer it," [said Fred, suddenly forgetting his weariness, and springing up, lie went hurriedlv into the hall. "Bosa," he said, presently reappear ing at the door, "it's Davis; I have promised to go with him...

A Poet's Wife. A writer in the London Athenceum, referring to the recent death of the wid ow of Walter Savage Landor, says: "Lan dor could never really feel that he was old or getting old; this, very likely, is the peculiar privilege of genius. *The good are ever young, says Matie de Meranie to Philip Augustus, in Dr. Marston's fine play. But, unfortunately, pretty girls, as a rule, are precisely those who never can take that view of matters. Landor and his wife had the inevitable ■ family quarrels and made them up. In deed, seeing how little of true sympathy there was between them, they really seem to have been, for a long time, exceedingly forbearing with each other. Most peo ple who knew Mrs. Landor as a young woman speak of her amiability and sweet charm of manner. ( I must do this little wife the justice,' said Robert Lander in one of his letters, to say that I saw much of her about three years after her mar riage during a long journey through i France and Italy, and that I lef...

NEWS B1 TELEGRAPH. Severe Ntorui in Live* LoM. Boston, July 10.—One of the se verest tempests ever experienced here swept over the city this afternoon. The duration of its violence was about 25 minutes, and in that period great damage was done life and prop erty. Reports from various points down the harbor contain accounts of serious damage and distressing acci dents. Many small yachts and other boats were capsized. The most seri ous accident yet reported is that of a small schooner, the Jfi/rtte of Charles town, having on board six persons, four women, a man and a boy. The schooner was capsized off Bird Island, and all except the man, who clung to the topmast, were drowned. The storm swept the interior of the state, and many lives were lost and much property destroyed. Boston, July 17. —The storm' yesterday was very severe at all points. The loss of life is greater than at first supposed, mainly caused by capsizing of boats. A yacht capsized off Nantasket beach and four persons wer...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Yaneouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. TEX TEAKS AFTER. Ten years ago, when she was ten, I used to tease and scold her; I loved her, and she loved me then, A boy some five years older. I liked her, she would fetch my book. Bring lunch to stream or thicket; Would oil my gun, would bait my hook, And field for hours at cricket. She'd mend my cap, or find my whip, Ah! but boy's hearts are stony! I liked her rather less than Gyp, And far less than my pony. She loved me then, though Heaven knows why, Small wonder had she hated, For scores of dolls she's had to cry That I decapitated. I tore her frocks, I pulled her hair. Called red the sheen upon it; Out fishing I would even dare Catch tadpoles in her bonnet. Well, now l expiate my crime; The Nemesis of fables Came after years; to-day Old Time On me has turned the tables. I'm twenty-five, she's twenty now. Dark-eyed, pink-cheeked and bonny; The curls are golden round her b...

"The Star Spangled Banner." Colonel Cohen was the only survivoi of Captain Nicholson's artillery com pany of Fencibles, 0110 of the three Bal- j tiniore companies which were stationed ! at Fort McHenry during the attack 011 1 Baltimore. On the 13th of September, 1875, then in his seventy-ninth year, he his last visit to this fort, to look for the last time, with failing vision, upon the scene which was so well im pressed upon his memory in youth, and in which the changes of time had made such a vast difference. An interview held with him by a member of the Sun's stall' 011 this occasion was reduced to writing at the time as an interesting contribution to our local history. Cohen said that it was on the 13th of September that the bombardment com menced, and therefore the 13th of Sep tember was his anniversary. He was then barely eighteen years old, being the youngest of three brothers, Jacob I.; Philip I. and Mendes I. Cohen. Capt. Nicholson's company numbered ninety men ordinarily, ...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, JULY 31. 187<>. The steamer Emma llayward lias been withdrawn from the Astoria route, anil the S. G. liced takes her place for the present. Pennsylvania has been having a big storm ami floods in the oil and mining regions, the damage of prop erty being very great. Only one life was lost. Another vessel was lost in the straits of Fuca last week, and now we may expect to see in the Puget Sound papers more howling about the dangers of the Columbia river en trance. Two of the murderers of Tullis, near Sacramento, were hanged, Troy Dye, and Anderson. The third one, Tom Lawton, has been captured at Lewiston, Idaho, and in due course of time will be taken to Sacramento for trial, after having escaped justice for more than a year. It is quite probable that Jackson Grant, who was sentenced to the penitentiary for life, will not long survive his sentence. When he reached the penitentiary he was so • exhausted that he could not walk and had to be carried ...

1511115 F MENTION. Ice has been in great demand for a week. The warm weather ripens the grain crops rapidly. The boys are now struggling home from the fisheries. Mayor Sohns arrived home from San Fran cisco yesterday. The salmon canning season closes to-day on the lower l iver. The Lurlinc is going on another excursion to the sen-side soon. The warm weather has effected an adjourn ment of base hall practice. That jolly sheriff, Schuster, has opened a meat market at (toldendalc. N. 11.

Heading Off a Lawyer. Rufus Choate, in an important marine assault and battery at sea case, bad Dick Barton, chief mate of the clipper ship Challenge, on the stand, and badgered him for about an hour that at last Dick got his salt water up and hauled by the wind to bring the keen Boston lawyer un der his batteries. At the begining of bis testimony Dick had said that the night was "dark as pitch, and raining like seven bells." Suddenly Mr. Cheate asked him: "Was there any moon that night? "Yes, sir/' "Ah, yes! A moon—" "Did you see it;" "Not a mite." "Then how do you know there was a moon?" "Nauticle almanac said so, and I'll be lieve that sooner'n any lawyer in the world." "Ah—you are growing sharp. Mr. Bar ton." "What in blazes have you been grind ing me this hour for—to make me dull." "Be civil, sir. And now tell me what latitude and longitude you crossed the equator in?" "Sho, you're joking." "No, sir! lam in earnest, and I desire you to answer me." "Ah, you reiuse to answer, do ...

Woman's Sphere Found at Last. Baron Huddleson, an eminent Eng lish judge, recently took occasion to say from the bench that it was an undoubted fact that a woman told a lie much better than a nan did, and with very much better effect. It was a remarkable cir cumstance that when a woman was de termined to say what was untrue she said it in a much better manner than a man. Whether this was due, to a man feeling that his dignity was to a certain extent offended by a recourse to untruth, he did not know; that was a metaphysic al question into which lie would not en ter; but it was certain that a woman told a story much more logically, and. if it was untrue, held to it much more pertinaciously, and with much more the appearance of truth, than a man could.

Bear ud A letter from Hon. S. E. Barr, bear ing date July 7th, informs the Astorian of a bad state of affairs in the Gray's river settlement He says: "The bear took another one of my hogs on Sunday at noon, about one hundred yards from the house. I followed him and took the hog from him. It was not quite dead. I got the hog home again, but about dark last night the bear took him again. There are about 40 bear to the acre, and wildcats and cougars In any quantity, taking chick ens and actually following the cattle, scattering them everywhere. I sup pose they will take them next. I must pen up my hogs, and I can do nothing but guard the stock, and set traps'and bear pens." Oregon Business Failures.—ln looking over The Business Outlook, published by R. G. Dunn & Co., we see that in Oregon for the second quarter of 1879 there were fourteen failures, amounting to $110,207, and for the first six months of 1879 there were twenty-three failures, amount ing to $174,721.

The Pope's Garden. Let me relate, says a Roman corres pondent, a visit to the Pope's private garden, which is supposed to bo inac cessible to the outsido world. Its par ticular interest is in the fact that for eight years the Popes have not stopped out of the Vatican Palace except to go into this garden, and naturally it is jealously secluded from profane intrud ers. However, we bribed the officials and were let into the garden surrepti tiously with permission to remain an hour, and we improved the time to the utmost. Until recently it has been only a place to stroll about in 011 foot. But now the Pope is having a carriage road made through it, and has just had an elegant landau constructed in Rome, with the papal escutcheons upon it, es pecially to drive about the garden in. The principal avenues are bordered by flat hedges, and in passing along you get glimpses, through green arches, of the sweetest little sylvan retreats that you can imagine; birds singing, fountains bubbling, li...

Material Advantages of Co-operation. It is especially important that Pa trons knowing the many benefits and advantages arising from our Order should keep before the minds of their co-laborers on the farm who do not belong to the Older all the facts necessary to inform them of its princi ples, purposes and intentions; for we hold that no farmer who once be comes thoroughly conversant with its fundamental principles and pur poses can hisitate for a moment about joining the Order. It is our duty to elevate our fellow-workers; and in no better or more simple way can this be accomplished than by increasing the boundaries of the Grange, and instilling into the minds of farmers the personal interest each has in the Order ind its co-operative move ments. We feel that we cannot too strongly or too frequently present this subject to Patrons. The co-oper ative business feature of the Order is the great lever that must move agri culturists. Self-interest is the ruling passion in humanity, and t...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 1879. The comparative rainfall between this and the Puget Sound country is well illustrated by the July reports. In this part of the country the rainfall for the month of July was lj inches, At Xeah Bay, on the coast, the rain fall for the month was nearly 4f inches. The bark Gem of the Ocean, coal la den, was wrecked on Vancouver Is land, in the Straits of Fuca, on August Ist. This is the third vessel wrecked on the Island within a month, more than has been wrecked on the Columbia bar for nine years, and the entrance is not 40 miles wide, either. The two Chinamen who murdered a Christian Chinaman in Portland last September, were sentenced 011 Monday, one to be hung on the 23d of September, and the other to the penitentiary for life. The pagan Chinamen of Portland spent much money to clear them, but the law has proved superior to heathen cash.
