A Dragon in Colorado. THE STRANGE STORY OF A TRAVELER IN THE GREAT AMERICAN DESERT. A correspondent of the Denver News | says: I was traveling horseback along a stretch of country which, for a long distance, merits the appellation of the Qroat American Desert. As far as the | eye could reach not a living tiling or : object created by tho hand of man could : be seen. On every side tlie horizon only bounded the view, and not even where the sky kissed the plain did aught but the scanty prairie grass, already burned to brown under tlie rays of the last Summering Rim, lift itself, dotted here and there by innumerable cacti, from mother earth. Save the quickly recovering thud of my horse's hoofs as he loped over the prairie, not a sound was to be heard, and the stillness was profound. But the silence and the solitude were not for long. As I was about to seek a place to build a Ure and bivouac for the night, suddenly a long trailing form started from the earth, and a queer rumbling cry was...

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1878. School Teachers. Iv tlie honed dealings of sober peo. pie, prices are the measures of utility. A slazy fabric ot little utility rates low in the scale of prices, because of its lack ot utility. Such article*, however, are generally made to appear what they are uot, and therefore cost more in pro portion to their utility than articles of more intrinsic value. We have, there fore, the saying, "tlie best is the cheap est iv the end." People very soon learn this lesson in its application to their material wants, but ure slow in adopting it as a practical truth in mat ters concerning their higher natures. The general education of the young, next to birth, the most important of all things in the world, is a matter wherein people are too apt. for the love of gross er things, to adopt an article of a slazy character because low priced. Among other things that might be mentioned in this connection is the inefficient school teacher, which is one of tlie poorest in...

Mr. Rump, of Georgia. A correspondent furnishes us with the annexed account of the perilous ad ventures of Jake Rump: "Thirty-five years ago or thereabouts, there lived in Southwest Georgia a wiry-haired, car roty-headed, freckle-faced backwoods man by tho name of Jake Rump, who passed through tho following perils be fore he arrived at tho nge of twenty-five years: Ho was first stricken by light ning; then on two separate occasions, bitten by large rattlesnakes; then again, bitten by a cotton-mouth moccasin, af terwards thrown from a wild horse and had one arm and one leg broken. But n short timo after recovering from his fractures, he and a young brother, while searching for their cows late one after noon, were attacked by a large panther, which caught Jako, dragged him at least the fourth of a milo to a dense ham mock, whore ho deposited his prey and proceeded to cover him with leaves and brush. The panther then retired a short distance, when Jako crawled forth and made his escape...

Astoria and the Lower Columbia. [From the Aitorinn.) Bishop Morris has let a contract for a summer residettcj at upper As toria. J. G. Mcgler & Co. completed the boxing of their salmon for the season 1876, on Monday last. The whole number of cases put up was 28,000. The first thing captured by the Astoria telegraph line was a young lady, fleeing in male attire from the parental roof. Her flight was inter cepted at Kalama, and she quietly walked ashore at that point in com pany with the Sherifl of Cowlitz county. If we can get a hearing we have a suggestion to offer the Auditor of the Postoffice Department. It is this: We have found that there are three chairs and a long-legged stool in the Astoria postoffice, and nary lamp that is fit for service. The postmaster here is not allowed any help, consequently he to be able to get along without the chairs; he can sit on the table for a change. Now if the Postmaster General will authorize it, a swap of the chairs can be made for some s...

Devoured by «in Alligator. soxnißUt fate of a hiwdoo oibl. There lived in Calcutta n lovely girl ; of seventeen, who was engaged to a man she was much attached to; her father, 1 however, did not approve of the match, and was anxious that she should marry another man, who had proposed to her I some time before. This second lover, backed up by tho father, was most per sistent in his attentions, and ultimately hoped to win the girl, who, on her part, j disliked him intensely, nnd declared she j would marry the man she was engaged to, and no one else. All of a sudden j the girl disappeared, and, though every i search was made, no intelligence could he gained of her, nor was there any ap parent reason for her mysterious ah- j sence. Suspicion fell on both her lov-1 ers, especially on the one whose snit she j had rejected, for it was well known he was highly incensed against her for her indifference toward him. They were both arrested and imprisoned, albeit they both declared their innoce...

Qwumvtt A.wlqmtilcnt BATUBDAT, SEPTEMBER 0, 1878. The Primary, In these days when tin? reform cry is fashionable' it behoves the people to make, it n practical milter by heeding it in their political campaigns. Public policy, the first thing for the voter to consider, demands that only honest and capable men be selected to (ill the va rious offices in the public service. It remains with the individual voter to say whether this demand shall be bred ed or not. At the primary and the convention, more than at the polls, it is important that all the best elements of the political parties be present to mani fest their will in the selection of dole gates and the nomination of candidates. Party organization is one of the neces sary concomitants of our civil govern ment, and although a voter may not feel himself to be in harmony with any political party,he must seek some meth oil of manifesting his political will as well in the initiative of politics as at the polls). He must not therefore n...

The Engineer's Heroism. It is late at night in the little depot of East Millstone, on the Pennsylvania road, and the telegraph operator, almost the only occupant, is taking dispatches. Cliekety-eliek sings the eleetrieal in<>tru ment. and all the messages tell of ex citement all along the frontal the Bound Brook crossing. Both sides are face to face in the most hostile attitude. The , men of the Pennsylvania company, few in number at the point of attack, stand strictly on the defensive, and the Pound Brook and Delaware men watch for an opening for an offensive movement. Oliekety-cliek still clicks the instru ment, and it says there is one hundred ; Italians at the 'crossing, armed to the teeth with knives and revolvers, and that the road is thronged with Irishmen, who carry stones and shillelahs. Then there is another dispatch, and this calls for instant action, for it says that tho Mound llrook men arc tearing up the rails, and that they hnvo partially fixed the frog in posit...

K. and L. composed the party. Being a picnic, of course the weather was unpropitious; and as we desired to sail, of necessity there was no wind; anil since we were compelled to row, it was exception ally warm. We arose long before the traditional cock crew, which was of no use, since we did not breakfast any earlier than usual, .-mil was caused only by nervous excitement brought on by the anticipation ot" such unreal time! After we bad con gregated under the "umbrageous shadow of a shady oak," we indulged m about 14 hours of amicable discus sion as to our destination, during which each member of the party lost his temper. We finally concluded to split the difference and go where no one wanted to go. Being equip ped with wraps and protections against the inclemency of the weath er, and provided w...

Lltrin-; Rooms. Farmers' wives many of them spend : the major portion of their time in the kitchen. Whether this results from necessity because help cannot be afford ed, Or from satisfaction of living inde pendently to avoid the unpleasant as sociation with kitchen help, it matters not from our point of view. We wish to outer a protest against such an arrange ment of rooms nnd windows us to forbid any view from the kitchen, except through a window that opens upon a woodyard. The room where B house wife spends most of her time should bo as pleasant, as any in the house. For whom is the house made if not for her? We would not place the kitchea to the front by any means, for this .seldom gives tho best view, nnd somewhat of seclusion is most desirable to a denizen of the kitchen. But from the place where tho food is prepared and the dishes washed, there should bean open ing upon the green Holds and beautiful trees. If possible, there should be » long view with varied scenery.
