Exhibits at the Portland F^r. From the Portland Daily Etc. 1 JOHN BARRETT, The Plumber and gas titter, of No. 43 First street, has probably gone to more special expense to help the mechanical exhibition at the Fair than any other exhibitor. His grand showing of the famous Hooker's Patent Direct Acting Steam Pump, is the wonder and delight of all visitors. These pumps are all working, sending forth great quantities of water with astonishing force. They have no, equal in simplicity of all working parts, ease of access for repairs, durability, and strength. The proper proportions and design of all paifs, valves and passages, both in the steam and water cylinders, are points that eon tribute towards the construction of an efficient and durable pump. From the severe tests that these puuips have been subjected to, and the universal satisfac tion given to all purchasers, we feel jus tified in pronouncing them par excellence. They are manufactured by W. T. (iarrett of San Francisco. Mr. Bar...

I'lip rhllo-Pmi War. Xkw YoHK, Nov. 12.—Tile Tribune reporter interviewed Nunez, of the Chilean legation, who said: Hv eap turing the pirt of l*isa«|ua the Chileans have placed themselves between the Peruvian forces at Ariea, 'Tacua and b[iii'iue. At Arlea and Taena, which is some distance inland, the Peruvians have about U.oon men. At Iquique they have probably !«XM>. It will now be in the power of the Chileans, as they have command of the sen, to cut otr supplies from the troops at Iquique and thus compel them to surrender. They mav also undertake operations against tlic forces at Arica, which the Peruvians will be unable to reinforce from Iquique. Chile has paid Iter way by issuing mvenbacks. Peru is greatly ei'ippjcd. She has not paid the inter est on her public debt, wkich is $200,000,000, since 1876. Nunez ex explains that the aim of Peru was to obtain eoninlete control of the nitriate trade, and that the people in the dis puted territory are nearly all Chileans. He expects...

VANCOI'VER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. TEA. They may talk of their cocktails, their tod dies and punches. Their fancy mixed drinks and their spirits taken straight, Their tankards of beer, and theft jolly cold lunches. O'er which happy topers till midnight de bate; They oft are enjoyed; yet a sad enervation Is hid in each glassful so sparkling and free; And I fall back at last on a better potation— That genuine comfort, a hot cup of tea.

English Land Monopoly System. The Landholders have a "corner" in the soil. They did not always have it. The "peasant proprietors" were at one time a large body. They were the "yeo manry," vaunted as the glory cf Eng land. But they have disappeared— crushed out l>y the land lust of the noble families. A relic of the older remains in the "statesmen" of Cumberland and Westmoreland, where the rapacity of the great lias been peculiarly resisted; but, as a class, the small proprietor.", are banished. The Conservatives account for this with a wave of the hand and the formula, "Small farms don't pay." And perhaps there Is no opinion in Eng land more absolutely settled than this. Agriculture means broad fields, costly appliances, expensive manures, rota tions, etc. The notion that a man with a little plot of his own could dig a living out of it and prosper, is as foreign to the mind of an ordinary Englishman as the project of extracting heat from cu oumbers. Yet, over in Flanders, the bhi...

The Great Industries. Prof. Eli F. Brown lectured at Indi anapolis recently on the great industries how they are affected by scientific discovery. The lecture began by show ing the marked progress of the age in which we live, especially as shown in man's control of force, and his know ledge of its action upon matter. The laltor of a year has been concentrated into the labor of a day, the travel of a •lay into the compass of an hour. Man seeks to do his work by machinery, by instruments that do not tire, grow hun gry, nor require expensive luxuries, laborers formerly required seven-eighths of th?ir time to produce the necessities of life; the laboring population new do more in three-fourths their time, thereby giving them time for study, time to think. Modern invention in doing the - labor of mens' hands brings tJiem to gether in large bodies, in cities, in man ufacturing towns, in factories. This contact procuces conflict and social agi tation and begets a higher order of in -tellec...

' The Babies." Samuel L. demons Mark Twain Responds to a Toast at the Rocoption ot Gen. Grant In Chicago by the Grand Army of the Republic. * WE ALL HAVE BEEN THERE. At the recent reception given to Gen. Grant at Chicago by the Grand Army of the Republic, speeches were made and toasts responded to by some of the ablest speakers of America. " Mark Twain" was the last speaker of the evening, and amid much merriment he replied to the following toast: '• The Babies—As they comfort ur, in our sorrows, let us not forget them in our festivities. I like that. We haven't all had the good fortune to be ladies ; we haven't all been generals, or poets, or statesmen ; but when the toast works down to the babies, we stand on common ground, for we've all been babies. It is a shame that for a thousand years the world's banquets have utterly ignored the baby, as if he didn't amount to anything ! If you gentlemen will stop and think a minute—lf you will go back fifty or a hundred years, to your early...

Kainy Day Work. The hist week hns been one of damp and drizzle, and of slowly falling rain, ."i rainy weather the outdoor work is .suspended for the most part, as nothing can he comfortably or effectively done at such .1 time. The workmen gather in the kitchen behind the cook stove, and smoke, tell stories, watch the steady rain, and speculate on crops and neigh borhood events. Perhaps they lie on the hay in the great barn, above the rows of placid horses, wrapping them selves, if it is cold, in the dingiest of stable blankets. All in all, it must be called an enforced suspension of labor, and the atmosphere of uneasy waiting and helplessness is apparent. But there is an abundance of work for our rainy days. We do not so much advise that an attempt to bring some outdoor task into the house be made, j though that, also, may be done. Woofl can be sawed, corn shelled, tools ground, | harness mended,» agonsrepaired if under j a suitable sheltfr, and all hands will thus be employed. A ch...

Why not be Happy ? Is it not the first and greatest of all duties to be happy ! It seems as if the whole of life, from the cradle to the cof fin, were one unbroken argument against unhappinesa Poor human nature has inevitable troubles enough without being burdened with optional ones; yet half the cares and troubles are optional. .Small troubles are created and large ones increased, by a continual unhopeful looking at the worst side. Some spend as: much vital energy over the loss of a penny trinket as would be needed, ap plied in the right direction' to supply the whole neighborhood with similar penny trinkets; but oceans of tears and lamentations would not even buy the raw material. Children who grow up in a domestic atmosphere all hazy with chronic grumb lings, are certain to be, in their tuni, pessimists, entailing upon an already over burdened world generation after generation of unhappy beings, who are always crying for the moon, or protest ing against the weather, or buying cof...
