Delegate Cannon of I"talt Is credited with tne follow ing double edged re joinder In reply to a question as to the politics ol the new state In the event that Territory i< admitted Into the I'nion: "Utah is democratic because she favors home rule, but she would foi lso grateful to the party that let her into the union that which ever party should admit her would have an immense advantage in the new state.*' Party leaders, aud especially republicans, are not apt to be deceived in this way. The republican adminis tration of the country has not been the friend of Mormondom, and need not therefore expect any considera tion at the hands of the "Mormon peo ple. There is a probability that ere the present session of Congress is over a bill for the admission of Utah will lie presented, and in view of the pres idential election next year and the importance of every electoral vote at that time, it is l...

Speaking of the Indian chief Moses, the secretary of the interior, in his re port, says: never was any trustworthy information in possession of this de* partment to justify auy suspicion as to the conduct or intentions of this In dian chief. On the contrary, he is known to have rendered good service during the Bannaok trouble in main taining peace and good order among the Indians under his influence. Hut the efforts to take his life, or at least his liberty, or to drive him into hos tilities, appeared to be so persistent that it required the most watchful and active interposition on the part of the government to prevent a conflict. On several occasions 1 requested the (gov ernor of the Territory to give his per sonal attention to this matter, ami to him, as widl as to General Howard, 1 have to express my ac knowlgdgements for prompt and ef fective co-operation with this depart ment in the measures taken to effect a peaceable solution of the difficulty.

YvITE.I. NEVEB WITESS. I know two eyes, two soft brown eyes. Two eyes as sweet and dsar As ever danced with gay su.prisc, Or melted with a tear; In whose fair raps a heart may bask Their shadowed rays serene-- Bnt little maid yon mnst not ask Whose gentle eyes I mean. I know a voice of fairy tone. Like brooklet in the June, That sings to please itself alone, A little old-worn tune; Whose music haunts the listener's ear, And will not leave it free; Bat I shall never tell yon, dear, Whose accents they may be. I know a golden-hearted maid For whom I built a shrine, A leafy nook of murmurous shade, Deep in this heart of mine; And in that calm and cool recess To make her home she came— But, oh! yon'd never, never guess That little maiden's name. Apache Life. Interesting Narrative of as Kx-Captive.

A Valuable Mineral Discovery. bpar is a, miunralogicil term, applied to certain crystallized substances which easily break into cubic or prismatic or oth?r fragments with polished surfaces. There are several varieties of mineral which very closely resemble spar, and it is ditlicult, without close test, to distin guish some of the agate formations from spar. There is a compound of baryta, the sulphate of which occurs crystalline. Native sulphate of baryta is known as heavy spar. It is found in quantities in Cumberland and West moreland, England. Fluor-spar is a mineral product common in Derbyshire, England, and noted for its great beauty. It is generally crystallized in cubes, but its primitive form is octahedron. It is of various colors, often beautifully handed, especially when in nodules, and is much prised for the manufacture of vases, and is occasionally used for beads, brooch stones and other ornamental pur poses. ' Peld spar is harder than spar, and is generally of light color...

VANCOI'VEII INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPKR OF CITY ANT) COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. MtiRMV AFTERNOON. 1 love to look upon a scene like this, Of wild and careless play, And persuade myself that I am not old, And my locks are not yet gray; For it stirs the blood of an old man's heart. And it makes hia pulse* fly, To catch the thrill of a happy voice, And the light ot a pleasant eye. I have walked the earth for four-score years. And they say that I am old, And my heart is ripe for the reaper Death, And my years are well nigh told; It is very true, it is very true; I am old, and I bide my time; But my heart will leap at a scene like this, And I half renew my prime. Hay on, p'.ay on: I am with you there, In tho midst of your merry ring; I can feel the thrill of the during jump, And the rush of the breathless swing. I hide with you iv the fragrant hny, And I whoop the smothered coll; And mv feet slip up en the seedy floor. And I care not for the fall. I am willing...

Women aX Harvard. [t is odd enough tho College which of all others has maintained an of the most disliko to collegiate oducation ot women should now be, by no consent of its own, lending a hand to an enterprise of the kind, without ex ception the most important now existing in tho country. I had occasion to spend a charming October morning, this year, at Cambridge, straightening out the con fusion which I, like most of my coun trymen, had been with regard to Har vard University and the ladies' curricu lum. The relation, or rather non-rela t ion|of those at the college is a thing that people are generally misty about. Tbey identify them, mistakenly enough, with the older systems of ladies' examina tions. What little connection there is between the two, is purely incidental, essentially, they have nothing to do with each other. EXAMINATIONS OP WOMEN. The examinations for women have been' in existence since 1874. They were established by tho college govern ment with some reluctance in ...
