Difficulties Encountered by Stanley. Stanley's narrative gives us a vivid idea of travel in Africa under its best conditions; that is to say, through a country fairly known, which has been visited by white men, and is now tra versed by frequent Caravans. Some times they crossed "broad and bleak plains, where food was scarce and cloth vanished fast," and sometimes they came to hilly countries, where tlie people were civil and . hospitable. Sometimes they were in troublesome districts; where there were warring tribes, where tho peojde were treacher ous or hostile, and then Stanley could only sleep with his hand on his rifle. There were furious tempests, "and some days liatuio and man alike warred against us, while on other* botli seemed combined to bless us." Other troubles cumo to the intrepid commander and his small army, more especially that potent and untiring enemy of all African travel— typhus. Th is was the enemy who me nauced Stanley at Zanzibar, and never left his footsteps u...

In it ItciM-tloii? Tlit' Now York llulhthi thinks that a miction has commenced in nearly all the markets. Its argument is tlitis stated: "In the lneaeliaudise markets there is a significant lull in speculation. It is unmistakable that prices have now reached a point at which lui.vers for consumption begin to hesitate and re sort to makeshifts. In sugars there have been no transactions of moment for three days. Cott'ec is coining in much faster than it is going out. But ter has touched the point at which oleomargarine again become- availa ble. Iron is yielding under the oilers of speculative holders and the compe tition of foreign supplii>. And thus the conditions of a reaction from the late advance run through nearly all the markets. It is not reasonable to suppose that such an extreme advance as lias occurred within lan months can be maintained. I'ndoubtedly prices, at the beginning of the year, were depressed much below the level consistent with a healthy demand: but the snhse*...

little Red Noses. How- that north wind whistled and stung the other day ! It was the first signal of a long dreary Winter, and even men in overcoats turned sharp corners to get out of the biting blast. Two children, a boy and a girl, neither over 9 years old, stood shivering in a doorway on Monroe avenue, wishing to go on to their lowly homo, but dreading the wind. They crept closer and closer to each other, and their chins quivered and their noses grew red as they grew colder. Hundreds of men and women passed up and down without care, but by and by along came a whistling, jovial lad of 14, who was swinging his boot black kit by a strap and picking up the steps of some clog dance. He saw these shivering bits of humanity where others ■were blind, and halting before them with a "clig-jigger-rigger" of his heels and a toss of his box, he called out: "Kin 1 bony them 'ere chins o' yours about an hour ?" "Yes, ma'am,'' demurely replied the girl. "I kin, eh -ohho! ho! ho! That's a give-aw...

American vs. English Grirls. American women, despite certain fan tastic figures in recent English novels, and despitelialf-truth caricaturists of th« "Irene Macgillicuddy" school, have no reason to complain of a lack of admir ing appieciation from their British cousins of the number of instances of the strongest possible proof of it. The latest cf these—-the marriage early in the present month of Lord tirantley to Miss MacVickar—is made the occasion of some very pretty compliments by the London Truth, whose title in this case is not a misnomer. "It is curious," the Truth observe?, "how many American girl* marry Englishmen. This is because they know how to make themselves pleasant. English girls are, as a rule, either too gushing and talkative or have nothing to sny for themselves. Ameri-j can girls unite the fact and savoir vivre I of Frenchwomen with the solid qualities of the Anglo-Saxon race. They know how to set oil' their natural advantages with dress, and they are almost alway...

VANCOUVER IXDEPEN DENT. THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 1880. U. S. Senator Houston of Alabama died last week, and his successor is to lie L. Pope Walker, a man, who after the southerners fired upon fort Sumter declared that within thirty days the confederate llag should be floating over the dome of the capitol at Wash ington. As Mr. Walker still sticks to his rebellious ideas we are led to re mark that he made a slight mistake in the dates on that occasion, as that floating idea of his will not be realized ! until within thirty days after he gets "hU certificate of election, anil il will come to pass then—in his mind. * The quarterly conference of the.Mor mons at Salt Lake eity was held on Sunday last, and a dispatch of the as sociated press says that during the af ternoon session John Taylor, in allud ing to polygamy, said that it was or dained of God; that the United States could not stop it; 110 nation on earth could stop it; all the nations 011 earth could not stamp it out. He said ho def...

The river boats are now all making their regular trips as usual. The ferry-boat Veto returned to her slip at this place on Tuesday evening. Plenty rain here, plenty snow in the mountains and the upper country. Sister Josephs of the House of Providence, returned home from Walla Walla 011 Mon day. The attendance at the churches was light last Sunday, on account of the heavy rain and wind. "Thu. raius descended and tiie floods came," and history is now in a fair way to repeat itself. Persons on the way to the upper country detained here, left 011 Tuesday morning for their destination. The game law went into effect 011 the Ist inst., and hunters should look out how they kill forbidden game.

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CITY AND COUNTY Vancouver, Clarlie County, Washington Ter ritory. THK BABY FOB MI:. I have heard about babies angelic, With a heavenly look in their eyes. And hair like the sunbeams of morning When first they appear in the skies, And smiles like the smiles of a cherub. And mouth like the buds of a rose, And themselves like the lilies and dasies And every sweet flower that gtvws. My baby's the jolliest baby That anyone ever did see ; There is nothing angelic about him. But he's just the right baby for me ! His smile not at all like a cherub's, But rather a comical grin; Apd his hair—it favors the sunbeams sunbeams are wondrously thin. His eyes, though they're blue, like the heavens. Are remarkably esithlv with fnn ; And his moutn's rather large for a rosebud, Unless 'tw«re a half opened one. His hands don't resemble a fairy's In at least they're a strong little pair, As you'd think. I am sure, if he'd got yon As oft' he gets me—by the hair ! A...

The Distriot Telegraph. The telegraph is now made to do a great many services in the large cities. Instead of merely sending messages from one person to another, instruments are placed in private houses, and the occupants, by merely pressing a knob, can summon a policeman, or give an alarm in case of fire, or call a messenger to do any service that may be required. The principal company in New York which controls such a telegraph system is the American District Telegraph Com pany. The boys in this company's em ploy have many duties to perform which are not required of the Western Union boys, and they therefore have a great many things to learn before thoy can be provided with work. When the hirer of a District instrument calls for a messenger, the boy can never know what he is wanted for. He may be told to hurry for a physician, ho may be given a package for delivery, or a bill to oollect, or ho may be sont by a broker to deliver stock or to have a check cer tified—in fine, his duti...

A beautiful custom prevails in many parts of Europe, of planting a tree at the birth of every child. It saves the wear and tear of slippers. Beauty in a modest woman is like Are, or a* sharp sword, at a distance; for neither doth the one burn, nor the other wound those that come not too close to them. The use of whiskey for rattlesnake bites in Texas lias increased so enor mously during the past year that the overworked snakes have resolved to leave the s»tate unless the board of im migration reinforces them strongly. They work on double time, and yet can't do half the biting that is de manded by the consumers. One snake who does "business at Fort Lavacca is six weeks behind his orders, and three of the clerks are sick.—-Al'w Times. In Turkey, where wine and intoxi cating drinks are forbidden by the Koran, the juice of the grape is boiled down in great ([iiantles, and conimon ly used in the household, much as we lise jam, answering the purpose of both butter and jam. it is considera...

lIUIEF MENTION. Blowing up fir trees with gunpowder is a failure. The Columbia has fallen two feet since a week ago. No. 3's dance comes off to-night at the eugiue house. The country mails will be irregular until the roads are repaired. Rev. Mr. Tower, of Salem, made Vancou ver a short call on Monday. Geo. Davis, of Lewis river, is still in the hospital, and slowly recovering. The raffle for Mr. Young's two l,.ts comes off Saturday night at Jo. Healey's. The report that Spencer Hill eommitted suicide is now contradicted by a Salem paper. The eclipse of the sun was witnessed by very few people in Vancouver, the weather being unfavorable. We have had a continued storm since the new year commenced, but the weather-wise predict an early spring. J. A. Dnpnis returned from repairing the telegraph line to Lewis river on Tuesday.

A New Mining Boom The Omaha Republican of December 17th publishes a two column interview with Mark W.

Souls. Anatomists have for age-; sraiviicd diligently for the human soui, but with out finding it. They have explored the most secret interstices of the interiors of men, women and children without Uncl ing a particle of soul, and the severest chemical tests have been employed for the same purpose, and with a like re sult. It is curious that they did not remember that the soul vanishes at death, and that to search a corpse on suspicion of having a soul concealed about it is as absurd as it is hopeless. Had they explored a living body they •.night have had some chance of detect ing a scul—provided, of course, it was not the body of a confirmed Positivist— but there are undoubtedly difficulties of detail in the way of exploring bodies while they are in the possession of own ers witlf ignorant prejudices against di - section. Nevertheless, success has at iaxt crowned the search for the soul, an 1 Prof. Dunstmaier, an eminent Ger man philosopher, has actually secured and bottled a large...
