VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY "Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. THE COTTAGE GATE. In tho sultry time of mowing When the fields are full of hav, rretty Janet brings her sewing To the gate, at close of day. Do you wonder that she lingers— Often glances down the lane Do you ask me why her fingers Seem to find their work a strain Love dreams hold her in their tether. Love is often we know- Idle in the Summer weather Idlest in the sunset glow. Now the toil of day is ever; Janet has not long to wait For a shadow on the clover And a footstep at the gate. How is this? The slighted sheeting Has been taken up anew; Very quiet is her greeting, Scarcely raised those eyes of blue. Now he leans upon the railing. Tolls her all about the hay: Still his pains seem unavailing— Very little she will say. U yon think it strange, my reader. Learn a lesson from tho rose. From the garden's queenly leader. Fairest flower that ever blows. Not at once she flaunts her...

Coming Round the Curve. w. o. P. There is a clever maxim Which I wouiil on you impress, Whether iu joy or sorrow, In pleasure or distress, To keep your wits about you, And faithfully observe, look out for the engine When it's coming round the curve. Should business cares oppress you, And times be hard and drear, All honest heart and sunny smile Will all your future cheer. }'ut 011 the brakes, keep a sharp lookout, The maxim well will serve, If you blow your whistle lively When you'er coming round the curve. If a gay coquette should charm you, With eyes and hair like night, To make your poor heart nutter, And telescope it quite, You bring to mind this maxim, And then (without reserve) To hoist the danger signal When she's coming round tin curve. To do your duty manfully, To cleave unto the right, Will make life all the happier And your joys will be more bright, If you leave the wrong behind you And from the right ne'er swerve; The engine will not harm you When it's coming round the c...

NEWS BY TELEGRAPH. 'Washington*, July 25.—The In dian agent at Fort Belknap reports to the commissioner of Indian attairs that a camp of twenty-one lodges of British bloods recently crossed the line and camped near his post. They were well supplied with meat and were very impudent. They waited upon the agent in a body and de manded a feast, and upon his refusal set fire to hay on a meadow and ex hibited other hostilities. They arc now camped five or six miles from the fort, and the agent says that they intend letnaining there some time. He suggests that the military take the band in hand and show them across the line at an early day. A telegram from Gen. Sheridan at St. Paul, received at the war de partment and forwarded to the com misioner of Indian affairs, says that the commanding officer at Custertele graphs that Lieut. Lapoint, 2d cavalry, at Beravo landing, with information that thirty lodges of Sioux are south of the Missouri on their way to Tongue river to make friends with ...

The Professor and the Parasol. We are acquainted with a good-na tured, and at the same time, astute old professor, who maintains that it is quite impossible for a man to properly and correctly hold a parasol over the head of an attractive young lady. He himself has wrestled successfully with Pliny, Plato and Sophocles; he has written historical works; he understands many languages; lie is well posted in philoso phy, psychology and metaphysics; but when it comes to holding a parasol so that the shade will slumber on the feat ures of a lady, he freely admits that he is at sea, and that every university in the land should add to its other attrac tions a parasol chair. Last Summer he took a walk in Cen tral Park with a young lady. Before he Lad journeyed very far she intrusted her parasol to him. He held it over her most esthetically for about five minutes, and then it shifted out of position, and his arm began to tremble. "You are not shading me at all," she lis])cd most melodiously, "...

Tobias Jones' Matchmaking. "I say," said Tobias Jonco, bringing down his fist on the dinner table with an emphasis that caused the bottles in Mrs. Tobias' new caster to rattle together ominously. "I say, wife, I have it now." '• Have what 1" asked Mrs. Tobias. " Why, an idea, a splendid idea—that Ls to say, a plan. You will surely get an invitation to a wedding, Belinda, be fore the Winter is ended, or my name is not Tobias Jones. ' " What ? who ! where !" asked Mrs. Jones. "I am thankful something is going to happen; I've stayed at home until I am tired, and my clothos are get ting out of fashion." "If wearing good clothes keeps them in fashion, you might wear them here at home," suggested her husband. "That's just the way with you men," said Mrs. Jones; " you expect us to wear our best clothes at all times and in all places, and yet always have them look new and fashionable. But who is going to be married)" " Well, you see it ain't a settled fact vet, but it might as well be, for ...

VANCOI VE R IXDEPEX!)E NT. THURSDAY, AUGUST 7, 1870. The yellow fever is still spreading at Memphis, and occasionally appears at other points. There is no hope of stamping out the disease, and no re lief expected until the frosts of win ter stops its ravages. The rust in the spring wheat of the Willamette valley has not been as general as at first reported, and the joss is comparatively small. The fall grain was not touched. The en tire crop of the coast will be one third greater than last year. Hon. A. G. Cook, recently nom inated on the republican ticket for the assembly in I.os Angeles county, Cal., has withdrawn from the canvass. It seems that under the new consti tution he has not been a registered voter long enough to entitle him to hold the seat if elected. The striking miners at the Seattle coal mines have yielded at last, agree ing to go to work at prices prevailing before the first strike, and to dissolve the Minors' Union. The mine owners had determined to close up the mi...

A Policeman's Romance. "Now look here," responded the de tective, "it seems to nie as though your readers had had a feast of blood for the past week. To begin with, there was the Silver Leaf Grove tragedy, and the list closed not two hours ago with that damnable razor-cutting ease you wit nessed. If you eared for it, I could give you semetliing just as interesting and a great deal more romantic than all these brutal rows put together." "What's it about ?' was the query. "About that man over there," and the speaker pointed to a stalwart Saxon in the uniform of the force, whose tawny moustache and closely crop|>ed hair set off to advantage a face moulded in the lines of command. "Now, you wouldn't think," continued the detective, "that man had gone through siege and march, and battle, and starvation and imprisonment, to get his wife, would you 1 But it's just through a combination of all those circumstances that he chances to-day to be happily married and the father of a family.

The Healing Lake.—Much has been said about the mineral lake in Stephen's County, usually known as the Medicine Lake, and is one of the Four Lakes which christened that section as Four Lake county. To bathe in it is like gettingchampooed. The water raises a lather like the finest toilet soap. Scabby sheep are driven thither and are cured by frequent dips in the lake. Men afflicted with rheumatism and even palsy try the ■water and go away healed. A Mr. Sullivan lives at the lake. When he came there, he was almost blind, and by the frequent use of this water he has regained his sight and can see as good as ever. The Four Lake coun try is therefore a poor country for doctors. One young physician lo cated there some time ago, but find ing no practice, he went to herding sheep. Few appreciated the healing power of this wonderful medicine lake, but the time will come when it will be a Mecca for the sick and ailing.—Walla Walla Wacthman. Grant's reception in Tokio is un precedented in Japan...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Cltirko County. Washington Ter ritory. Mrs. Purdy's Parquisites One day, some time since, we were summoned to the parlor, to see a visitor who had sent up neither card nor name. As we entered the room, an un der-sized, wiry, active, elderly, quaint looking woman rose to greet us. We were struck at sight with the brightness of her dark, handsome eyes, and the russet redness of her thin brown cheeks. Her dress was of calico, starched and ironed to a miracle, and she wore an in describable air of independent out-of fashionness, which took our fancy at the start. She was living on a ranch not a very great way from San Francisco. SLe was born in England, had come over to this country in her girlhood, had spent some vears in Connecticut, had married in Pennsylvania, had tried her fortunes in the West, and had finally drifted to California—all of which we learned in after conversation, and noted that her speech bore eviden...

The Child's Influence. "There is 'Whisky Bill,' who used to drive the old white horse in front of a 25-ccnt wagon repeated the man in tones of surprise. " Yes 1" " Well, now, it's a curious case," he slowly continued. "We all thought he had gone to the dogs, for sure, for lie was drinking a pint of whisky a day, but a few months ago he braced right up. stopped drinking, and now I hear he's in good busidess and saving money. It beats all, for the last time 1 saw him he was half underground. When you go home at night and find that all is well with your own flesh and blood, do you go to sleep reasoning that the rest of the world must care for itself? Do you ever shut your eyes and call up the hundreds of faces you have met during the day, and wonder if the pale ness of death will cover any of them be fore the morrow ? When you have been once attracted to a face, even if it be a stranger's, do you let it drop from mem ory with your dreams, or do you call it up again and again as night c...

The land case ofA.S.Farquharson, for an alleged abandonment of his homestead near Puyailup, has been decided by the land department againist Mr. Farqueharson.

Discontent with one's moderate suc cess in any line argues this, that you are not the master of your idea, but that it lias become the master of you. The instant the pursuit of money be comes a vexatious care, disturbing your days and your sleep at night, in that moment you have lost your freedom, and you are the slave of a passion, j Contentment comes from the perfect j mastery of an idea. You must hold | the ideas as the glass holds the wine. It j must be contained. One of the ancient j wise men having been informed that a i storm had destroyed all his merchant j ships and had thus in one day swept j away his fortune, said: "It is just as j well", for now I can give up my mind j more fully to study." Thus, however many ships he had on the sea, and how ever rich their cargoes, he was yet not j the slave of his traffic, but his great j mind held all these things in perfect | subjection. At times he must have felt ! that these sailing ships were placing | chains upon his liberty, for...

Whitelaw Reid and California. [:, response to the toast' "Our Guest," at the close of the breakfast given Whitelaw Reid, editor of the New York Tribune, by members of the San Fran cisco press, that gentleman made the following allusion to California: It used to be said in New York that a:i Englishman could hardly land before he was asked how he liked the country. You have shaken off your provincialism sooner than we did, for I've found no body wanting to know about that here. Why should he? Of course I like the country, for it is my country. The crude impressions of a new corner must be nearly worthless, anyway: and a fort night's observation gives no right to opinions. But it is not the language of mere compliment to say that my first thought is one of amazement. No man who has always lived ease of tho Mis souri can know what an enormous country we have, or guess the glories of our possible future. Nothing that has been spoken, written or printed has pro pared us for the reality. I...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Yanoouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. TEN TEAKS AFTER. Ten years ago, when she was ten, I used to tease and seolil her; I loved her, and she loved mo then, A boy some live years older. I liked her, she would fetch my book. Bring luueh 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 1 expiate my crime; The Nemesis of fables Came after years; to-day Old Time On me has turned the tables. I'nktwenty-five, she's twenty now, Dark-eyed, pink-cheeked and bonny; The curls are golden round her ...
