My Grandfather's Story. John Harrey sat upon his porch, smoking his pipe with great content, while lie looked down upon the waters of the Ohio and watched the passage up and down the stream of steamboats and vessels whose broad sails were tilled by the soft winds that came from the direc tion of L ike Erie, sweeping across the State in fitful currents. John Harvey was a man verging upon three score and ten. His hair was white and his face somewhat wrinkled, but he was vet erect of carriage—a stal wart looking man, who, in his youth and in his priuie, must have been active and powerful—a very Hercules in form and strength. John boasted being one of the early pioneers of Ohio. He early entered that wild country and commenced in the woods clearing a home for himself and his young wife—a very attractive girl she must have been when she first became Mary Harvey, for even at the time of which I am writing, when she was well past her sixtieth birthday, she still pvesenti d the appearance o...

Icices 1 If a person upon looking out of the window, should say—as he might at this hour—"What large icicles are forming on the eaves of the barn !" one could pretty well tell what the weather is, and has been. What are icicles 1— Perhaps some of you would answer: "They are sticks of ice, long—long enough for canes sometimes—usually more or less ridged and rough, tapering down to a pretty sharp point—every body knows what icicles are !" How are they formed I Some say they grow, but do they grow as children do, or even corn or apples ? Do they grow on the outside or the inside'! How does an icicle start? But to answer this ques tion, is the weather freezing or thawing when these hanging sticks of ice begin to form I Freezing, of course; but there must be water running down the roof and oil' at the eaves, to begin with. Icicles form then after a thaw, when the weather sets in cold and the temperature is below freezing. As tlio drops or water arrive at the edge of the eaves, of "the ju...

YANCOrYER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL TAPER OF CITY AN P COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, 'Washington Ter ritory. Taken at Ms Word. Nellie Palmer was lying 011 the lounge in her pretty bedroom, crying and look ing very unhappy. And yet she had been married only six months, and to such a " nice, handsome man," as all the young ladies declared, that surely 6he ought to have been happy with him. And so she had been until—until, to tell the truth, L>ob Palmer, forgetting, or seeming to forget, that he was a mar ried man, had recently taken to flirting with these very young ladies at all the parties in Middleton, leaving his wife to take care of herself. Surely it was enough to make any six months' wife crv, especially one so sensitive as Nellie. Not that Robert Palmer loved his lit tle wife a bit less than on the day of his marriage—neither that Nellie sus pected him of it, or for a moment doubt ed his morals any more than she did his constancy. But Mr. Palmer was a gay young man, and lo '...

The Pioneers of Oregon. The winter of 1855-6 was a time to be remembered by the settlers of South ern Oregon. Tliry had long been ac customed to the ordinary hardships of frontier life. They had learned to dis pense with all luxuries, and with some of the comforts of civilization, and to wrest from the situation such pleasures as are born of activity and hope. But this season brought to their doors the terrors of savage warfare, and merged all minor considerations in the immi nent peril which surrounded them. The Indians of the upper Kogue River Valley had been on the war-path for some time, but those of the lower river and the coast professed friendship for the whites, and asked to be protected from the hostiles of the interior. Though hoping by a conciliatory course towards the savages to avert the calamity which had visited their friends up the river, tlie settlers resorted to such pre cautionary measuresas ordinary prudence would suggest. They built a kind of fort at the mouth o...

VAM or VKR IN DEPEN I)E.NT. TUI'KSDAY, MARCH 4, 1880. Ihal (VutrHl ( omiiiiUco TheOlympia Courier, "organ," of the 20th ult, rejoins iu behalf of the recent Jiseiklo notion of the minority of the Republican Territorial Central Com mittee—and makes known the little job put up by the "ring" through the chairman of the Committee at the last session of the Legislature. It seems the "ring" having decided upon the plan of capturing the Central Commit tee to use as a factor in its further plans for holding fast to the plethoric udders of official pap, thought it advisable to guise and guild their usurpation by , committing the unwary legislator into a sanction of the job. So it seems the chairman by "appointment" met nineteen of these wise men in caucus who unanimously endorsed the prop osition that no convention should be called for the people to express their opinion as to who should be the pres idential nominee, and agreed in be half of theirconsiituentstothis waiver of the people's rig...

And thou wouldst stoop to kiss my lips the while. But—up in heaven —how is it with thee dear? Art thou a man—to man's full stature grown? Dost tliou count time a? we do, year by year?

VANTOI VEK INDEPKNDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH 11, ISSO. , The Revenue I.nw.

Of this law a i recent issue of the Olympia Transcript says. The hardships which it imposes upon tax-payers, not so much in pay ing a legitimate tax hut the unwar ranted trouble and expense in being assessed: the opportunity it gives dis honest officials who carry out the pro-, visions of the law to oppress and bur- j den the tax-payers; its conflict with | the organic act, makes it worse than | the "blue law'' of Connecticut.
